Technology is at work again and seeks to cure a common occurrence among elderly people: falling. Falling is the leading cause of death by injury in those aged 65 and older, with 1 in 3 seniors falling each year.

Instead of the arguably intrusive methods that are widely available now, researchers are trying to implement radar. Essentially, the radar systems will send and receive waves that reflect off of the person. The programming of the system will help distinguish whether the person is falling or if it was a false alarm, like a pet jumping to the floor or a grandchild flopping down in a chair.

Graduates with a master's degree had a 92% chance within the same time period. More info here: http://www.medicalnewstoday.com/releases/237900.php
Numerous polls show recent college grads have been hit hard by the recession and are facing tough odds in finding well-paying employment.

Some patients in critical care situations are nearing the end of their life. Check out this article on terms used by medical staff in critical care that can be confusing and uncommon terms for the family and friends of the patient. http://www.cnn.com/2013/07/01/health/end-of-life/index.html?iref=allsearch
At the end of life or in critical care situations, it's common for doctors to use terms that may sound vague to friends and family members.
