Closed Loop Insulin Pump Aiding Type 1 Diabetic Patients

Insulin pumps have been around for the past decade, aiding type 1 diabetics in controlling their blood glucose levels. Previous pumps have required manual input for it to administer insulin. Recent developments of the closed loop system mean you are only required to add of discrete amount of insulin within a specific time that corresponds to the amount of carbs you are about to consume. The closed loop system then continues to monitor your blood sugar level throughout the day, automatically administering slightly more insulin as levels rise, and reducing the amount when levels lower. There are many ways to wear the pump. You can attach it to your belt, protect it in your pocket, or even clip it under your clothing. https://diabetesnsw.com.au/helpful-resources/news/artificial-pancreas-now-available-in-australia/

Nuclear energy that’s super safe and affordable

The next generation of nuclear reactors called small modular reactors (SMR’s) can be built in a factory and transported to customers by truck or barge. They could overcome Australia’s resistance to power by fission and lead to super-safe and relatively cheap sources of electricity using Australia’s vast uranium resources . Rolls Royce say theirs could be in operation by 2030. Good to hear that a Parliamentary Enquiry will be held in Australia to review opportunities with nuclear energy.  It seems that the following generation of nuclear energy  uses fusion which does not need Australia’s uranium. https://www.afr.com/companies/energy/the-new-nuclear-option-small-safe-and-cheap-20190813-p52gr6 https://www.ideaspies.com/small-nuclear-power-reactors-for-affordable-low-carbon-energy/.

Visit Cambodia and help to educate children

Cambodia has a chronic lack of an educated professional workforce to provide the teachers, trained nurses, accountants, engineers, doctors and administrators needed to build an economically and socially healthier and stronger country. Opportunity Cambodia is helping to change this situation At the end of 2018 their first group of high school students passed the National Exam and became eligible to apply to university. This is an impressive achievement for young people who come from the poorest families, where parents are illiterate and have little hope for the future. You can donate to help, connect them with a school or volunteer. Volunteers need to have tertiary education or training, energy,  imagination,  adaptability, commitment AND be over the age of 18, want to stay at least one month and be happy to live during the week in a rural village https://opportunitycambodia.org.au/get-involved/

New ways to reduce plastic waste in supermarkets

Since the national ban on single-use plastic bags from most supermarkets, new ways to be environmentally friendly when grocery shopping has since been introduced. Although most supermarkets have banned the plastic bags at the registers, most places are still using single-use bags in other areas of the store. Lidl is a supermarket chain that has reduced this problem by introducing inexpensive reusable bags that you can buy for your fruit and vegetables. With the new reusable bags made with cotton and drawstring openings, the company is hoping to reduce plastic waste. https://www.plantbasednews.org/news/lid-reusable-bags

Helping with bill payments

What happens when you combine modern day lay-buy payments, ethics, and a strong customer focus? Deferit. Deferit pays bills. For anyone struggling to make ends meet, this sees lights kept on, but also potentially receiving early payment discounts. It does this for a flat $5 fee up to a balance of $500, allowing the customer to then pay down the balance over time. At first glance I wondered if there was a market for this: would customers sign up. Talking to one of the founders had the answer: they’ve already had tens of thousands of customers sign up, all in less than a year.  www.deferit.com.au

A plastic film made out of left over shellfish shells

CuanTec is extracting a protein called chitin from the shells of langoustines, and transforming it through fermentation into a natural biopolymer known as chitosan. This is used to make a clear food wrapper that can be later composted at home and has natural antimicrobial properties. The startup is currently at research stage but looking to finalise a round of financing. While this is not the first biodegradable wrapper produced from shellfish waste, other processes created materials that were unappealing to customers. https://www.springwise.com/innovation/food/biodegradable-packaging-cuantec-shellfish-waste

New cyber security research could protect data, even when attackers break in

A UC researcher in the US, recently named in MIT’s Top 35 Innovators under 35, found a breakthrough in cyber security mechanisms, to enable our insatiable appetite for data to be better protected than traditional perimeter techniques. This is a huge field and rightly so. – we need better mechanisms to help protect data and data custodians, and by doing so we enable greater & wider data sharing and collaboration. Raluca Ada Popa’s recent research showed that her encryption methods work with a range of applications and provide a level of protection that firewalls cannot: even if attackers break in, they have no way to decipher the data. A recent use case sees this new approach applicable to hospitals, to help share and aggregate patient records. It can accelerate innovation if considered during the ideation/ design phase! https://www.technologyreview.com/lists/innovators-under-35/2019/visionary/raluca-ada-popa/ research: https://www.researchgate.net/publication/334534372_Helen_Maliciously_Secure_Coopetitive_Learning_for_Linear_Models
