Recently, 1,400 researchers stationed in the South Pole didn’t have to wait-out the brutal six month winter to speak with a doctor. Those who needed the advice of a physician could do so on a “telemedicine” network operated by the University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston and powered by Polycom.
In fact, Polycom powers a number of telemedicine services around the globe, providing people in rural environments access to top-notch healthcare.

Casual sex increases a teenager’s odds for clinical-level depression nearly threefold. The effects are the same for boys and girls, though younger teens (13-15 years old) who had so-called “nonromantic sex” faced substantially greater risks for depression. Dating alone was not linked to depressive symptoms.
Published in the Journal of Abnormal Psychology, the the study provides evidence that “context is key” when trying to understand how teen relationships and sex affect their well-being.

Scientists in the UK have developed a robot that is powered with sewage waste, or, in more layman’s terms, poo.
Called the EcoBot III, it’s entirely powered by energy processed by its microbial fuel cells, which turn waste into energy. Using this mechanism, a robot could be capable of refueling itself autonomously by picking up waste material from the environment.
The robot was built by a joint venture of the Bristol Robotics Laboratory — itself a collaborative research project of the University of Western England and the University of Bristol — and Wessex Water, a regional water and sewage treatment business. The idea behind the project is to develop more energy-efficient and eco-friendly robots that could be self-sustaining.

Microsoft’s Bing search engine is taking its battle against Google to the next level with a new campaign called “Don’t Get Scroogled.”
The company launched a Scroogled website on Wednesday which attacks what Bing refers to as Google’s “unfair ‘pay-to-rank’ shopping practices.” This apparently refers to Google’s decision earlier this year to require merchants to pay in order to have their products come up in the results on Google Shopping. Previously, both free and paid listings were featured in Google Shopping results.
A new study has found a high incidence of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) symptoms among teenagers who have been bullied.
The study of 963 teens aged 14 and 15 in Norwegian schools found symptoms of the disorder in about 33 percent of the students who said they were victims of bullying — though it did not determine that these students were diagnosed with full-blown PTSD.
A new study published November 20 in the open-access journal PLOS Biology has identified hundreds of small regions of the genome that appear to be uniquely regulated in human neurons. These regulatory differences distinguish us from other primates, including monkeys and apes, and as neurons are at the core of our unique cognitive abilities, these features may ultimately hold the key to our intellectual prowess (and also to our potential vulnerability to a wide range of ‘human-specific’ diseases from autism to Alzheimer’s).

A cheap meningitis vaccine designed to treat a type of the disease common in Africa was ruled safe to use after several days without refrigeration on Wednesday, allowing health workers to get it to people in more remote parts.
Epidemics of meningitis A occur every seven to 14 years in Africa’s “meningitis belt”, a band of 26 countries stretching from Senegal to Ethiopia, and are particularly devastating to children and young adults.
The World Health Organisation (WHO) ruling, that vaccine MenAfriVac is safe to use for up to four days at up to 40 degrees Celsius, will save money spent on expensive “cold chain” systems in the final miles of delivery, said Orin Levine, director of vaccine delivery at the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, which helped fund the vaccine’s development.

Technology to help seniors age in place has gone far beyond grab bars and fall-alert buttons worn around the neck. Today, there’s a host of sophisticated products on the market, from medication dispensers that can report to a family member when their loved one forgets to take a pill to shoes embedded with GPS trackers to find cognitively impaired wanderers.
The best choices for seniors who want to stay at home depend on their medical condition, budget and personal preferences, says Marnie Renda, an occupational therapist and certified aging-in-place specialist in Cincinnati. The goal should be to make the technology fit the lifestyle, not the other way around.
