Restaurants become retailers

Pondicheri, an Indian restaurant in Houston, with a branch in New York, is an example of a restaurant becoming retail. When it opened seven years ago, it sold only two products. Now it offers more than 70 products, from spices — the best-seller — to prepared food kits, pickles, chutneys, frozen sauces and stocks, and oils. The owners recognise that younger customers want to cook and retail now makes up about 9 per cent of their sales. The trend follows the continued expansion of Eataly, which has successfully meshed the retail-restaurant experience. www.pondicheri.com/

A vet to your home

The Vets on Call app will enable pet owners to connect with nearby vets to book in-home consultations for their pets. This means you don’t have to transport your pet to a clinic. You search for an appointment for the time and date that suits you, select a vet who is available and detail the issue being faced by the pet. The app generates a price for the visit before securing the appointment. Visits can be scheduled from 6am to 11pm. They also give you complete access to your pet’s health record – it’s saved in your profile. http://vetsoncall.pet/

Nanoparticles to detect fake Australian beef

Commercial trials are underway in Australia to inject edible nanoparticles into cuts and sides of export meat before it leaves Australia, with the meat linked to encrypted blockchain verification systems that need unlocking to prove it is genuine Australian provenance once it ­arrives in China. It is estimated twice the amount of Australian beef actually exported is sold in China while carrying an Australian brand or Australian-grown label; a fraud that costs Australian farmers and meat exporters $2 billion in potential lost sales. Cutting-edge nanoparticle technology adopted from the medical industry, using unique brand-identifying films or liquid injections that are safe to eat and impossible to taste or see, may be the secret to solving this major global problem. To help you get the picture, a human hair is 10,000 times wider than a nanoparticle. A nanoparticle is the size of a molecule. www.theaustralian.com.au/business/aussie-beef-exporterd-declare-war-on-chinese-counterfeiters/news-story/1ace93c183e7604880e8a4abbde11920

An automated warehouse of the future

Imagine a huge warehouse with groceries going in one end and shopping orders coming out the other. Humans do the unpacking and packing, while in the middle, robots sort and rearrange this vast inventory 24 hours a day. This is the latest highly automated warehouse of Ocado, a British online-only supermarket that also sells its technology to other global grocers. This algorithmically designed warehouse maximizes available space while digitizing some of the more arduous, complex and dull aspects of warehouse work. And by licensing and selling its automation technology to other companies, Ocado monetises the research and development needed to consistently disrupt itself.  https://www.theverge.com/2018/5/8/17331250/automated-warehouses-jobs-ocado-andover-amazon?

A DNA test that’s helpful in treating depression

According to the National Institutes of Mental Health 50 percent of people diagnosed with depression use a medication to treat it. The right drug can radically improve patients’ quality of life; the wrong one can actually make their symptoms worse. A new genetic test called GeneSight analyzes 12 genes from a sample to predict how a person will respond to more than 55 psychotropic medications (drugs designed to affect a patient’s mental state). A study has showed that patients in the GeneSight segment were 50 percent more likely to achieve “remission” (a score in the “normal” range) than patients in the control group. https://futurism.com/genesight-dna-test-treating-depression/

World first- lung cancer surgery blasts tumour without puncturing skin

Surgeons at St Bartholomew’s Hospital in London used GPS-style technology to reach a tumour on a lung, without using cuts or needles, or needing to puncture the lung. After inserting a catheter through the patient’s mouth, the surgeons were able to use 3D images to guide them to the tumour and blast it with a targeted dose of microwave energy. Footage shows the tumour exploding, not unlike the target of a missile strike, or an enemy in a computer game. https://www.theaustralian.com.au/news/world/the-times/lung-cancer-surgery-blasts-tumour-without-puncturing-skin/news-story/5d9ffdc13d8bcd365ac1ceb81ca1ca05
