- Rotator Cuff Slosh Pipe : Chris noted a brilliant idea recently – the Rotator Cuff Slosh Pipe. If you’re looking for a DIY project for this weekend, it’s a great place to start.
- The Science of Salt : Scientific American took a brief look at the science surrounding hypertension, and salt intake. Interesting.
- ePatient Networks : There are many aspects to healthcare, and patient networks certainly play an invaluable role. Fast Company explores.
- Fitocracy App : We’ve noted a number of fitness gadgets and applications over the years, and Ars Technica takes a look at the latest offering from Fitocracy. Nice one.
- Leptin in Fruit Flies : The hormone leptin – a nutrient sensor, regulating energy intake and output and ultimately controlling appetite – was long thought to exist only in vertebrates. Recent work at the Harvard Medical School suggests that it may also exist in fruit flies; leading to both some interesting ‘where else?‘ questions and much more efficient research on appetite. Good stuff.
NB : to see all of these as they appear (and to share your own thoughts on things), the simplest way is to follow me on Google+. You’ll see these, and a whole lot more.
