Spinal cord implant helps people walk again

The Guardian reports, “A small group of paraplegic patients have once again been able to take steps after researchers implanted a device to electrically stimulate their spinal cords. Two separate teams of scientists have revealed for the first time that the technique, together with physical training, has allowed three out of the five people treated to walk again after losing all voluntary movement below the site of an injury.” https://www.theguardian.com/science/2018/sep/24/revolutionary-spinal-cord-implant-helps-paralysed-patients-walk-again?CMP=Share_iOSApp_Other

North Sydney to become Non Smoking- NS

North Sydney Council has passed a recommendation to make its CBD the first smoke-free business district in Australia. The ultimate aim is to make North Sydney the first smoke-free municipality in Australia. There are about 72,000 residents and this means all shared public spaces – streets, plazas and parks – will become no-go zones for smokers. It includes outdoor seating areas in front of restaurants and cafes. Smoking prevalence in the Northern Sydney local health district is 9.5 per cent, lower than the state average of 15.2 per cent. https://www.smh.com.au/politics/nsw/north-sydney-set-to-become-australia-s-first-smoke-free-cbd-20180925-p505xn.html

Hunting the poachers

Wildlife crime is sweeping the planet. The illegal trafficking of wildlife is now one of the world’s largest criminal industries, with repeated links to terrorism networks. Modern-day poachers have evolved and routinely utilise military tactics and equipment to kill high-target species, such as elephants, rhinos and gorillas. The non-profit International Anti-Poaching Foundation (IAPF) has established a Ranger Training Academy to instruct wildlife rangers, both men and women, in military tactics to hunt the poachers. The legendary primatologist Jane Goodall is an IAPF patron. Unmanned drones are refitted with night-vision technology to track intruders. The IAPF is now registered in four separate countries across southern and east Africa, and the rangers help protect the animals within nearly three million hectares of wilderness every day. www.iapf.org

The world’s first taxi paid by singing

Fortum Singalong Shuttle is the world’s first taxi that is paid by singing. The car keeps on moving as long as you keep on singing. The service is run on electric cars, so the passengers can enjoy the music without background noise and carbon emissions. It was piloted by driving festival visitors at Ruisrock festival, July 2018 in Turku, Finland. Carpool karaoke was popularised by the comedian James Corden’s viral segment where celebrity guests sing in his car. www.fortum.com/singalongshuttle

The right trousers

Robo-trousers that help people stand up, walk upstairs and get out and about are being designed by British scientists in a government-funded scheme to help the elderly and disabled stay mobile. The University of Bristol is developing “smart trousers” with artificial muscles which give frail people bionic strength so they can live independently for longer. The muscles are air-filled bubbles of plastic that can raise a leg from a seated to a standing position. The project has been dubbed “The Right Trousers” in reference to The Wrong Trousers, the Wallace and Gromit animation in which Wallace constructs a pair of calamitous cyber slacks. https://www.theguardian.com/technology/2018/sep/11/the-right-trousers-wallace-and-gromit-mobility-aid-robotic

Ensuring honey is pure

CSIRO is researching how to use blockchain to ensure honey does not contain artificial substitutes. Testing has found that almost half the honey samples selected from supermarket shelves were “adulterated”. This means they had been mixed with something other than the product from bees. The samples tested were all either wholly imported or blends of both imported and locally-produced honey. https://blog.csiro.au/is-your-honey-faking-it/

A NFP generic drug company

A group of major American hospitals, battered by price spikes on old drugs and long-lasting shortages of critical medicines, has launched a mission-driven, not-for-profit generic drug company, Civica Rx, to take some control over the drug supply. Backed by seven large health systems and three philanthropic groups, the new venture will be led by an industry insider who refuses to draw a salary. The company will focus initially on establishing price transparency and stable supplies for 14 generic drugs used in hospitals, without pressure from shareholders to issue dividends or push a stock price higher. https://www.washingtonpost.com/national/health-science/hospitals-are-fed-up-with-drug-companies-so-theyre-starting-their-own/2018/09/05/61c27ec4-b111-11e8-9a6a-565d92a3585d_story.html?
