Lab Testing Reinvented: Q&A with Elizabeth Holmes of Theranos

 by TED Med  Blog

The United States spends more on healthcare than any other Western nation – more than two and a half times the amount spent by most developed countries. Even so, most Americans do not have access to quality, timely care. Patients seeking care face unpredictable costs for even the most routine diagnostic procedures, like blood testing.


These hurdles are so prohibitive that seeking out healthcare is often viewed as a last resort – an option to be considered only when symptoms appear. In some cases, this can be too late. Elizabeth Holmes reminds us that access to affordable, preventive care is a human right. It is this right – the right to be as healthy as possible – that is at the root of her mission to make actionable health information accessible to everyone at the time it matters.

At TEDMED 2014, Elizabeth talked about this right and the importance of enabling early detection and empowering individuals to make educated decisions about their healthcare.

"See Why We Have An Absolutely Ridiculous Standard Of Beauty"



Model Before and After better 


See Why We Have An Absolutely Ridiculous Standard Of Beauty In this video. There is the reason that even when I was in really great shape, wore a size 4, and was healthy, it was never good enough for me. All of my logic and intelligence have trouble combatting what I've seen as "perfect" day after day for my entire life.

Architecture for the people by the people




Architecture for the people by the people

by at TED



Designer Alastair Parvin presents a simple but provocative idea: what if, instead of architects creating buildings for those who can afford to commission them, regular citizens could design and build their own houses? The concept is at the heart of WikiHouse, an open source construction kit that means just about anyone can build a house, anywhere.

The most important quality of Science or Art is Curiosity



Explore ideas worth spreading, every day

 
In his TEDGlobal 2013 talk, Fabian Oefner shares breathtaking images at the nexus of art and science, which beautifully capture unique moments of physical and chemical drama.


Formally trained in art and design, Oefner says that he has always been interested in science. Though he can’t pinpoint the exact moment when he became interested in pairing his two loves, he views both pursuits as inextricably linked by a crucial bond: “The most important quality of science or art is curiosity,” Oefner tells TED. “That’s what keeps me going and always finding something new.”

Miniskirt a History of Revolution and Innovation


A History of the Fashion Revolution


The 1960s was a politically charged decade of revolution and change. Apollo 11 became the first capsule to land on the moon, the Civil Rights Act of 1964 became law, Vietnam was raging, Beatlemania was sweeping the world, birth control pills hit the market, and a new cult of youth, known as “Youthquake,” had radically taken over many areas of life. In the midst of these dramatic political and cultural changes emerged one of the most enduring and controversial icons of the era: the Miniskirt (or mini skirt).


    Existing, surprisingly, since ancient times, this small and sexy piece of fabric has embodied some of the most fascinating paradoxes of our times as it suggests both empowerment and vulnerability, independence and a desire to please, an attempt to cover and to reveal, maturity and playfulness, and liberation and exploitation. Simultaneously condemned and loved, the miniskirt exploded into the political landscape and had women (and men) suddenly paying attention to what had been hidden years before—a woman’s legs.

A History of the Miniskirt

 by Randomhistory.com

 

The popularity of miniskirts peaked in the "Swinging London" of the 1960s, but it is still commonplace among many women, especially teenagers, preteens, and young adults. Before that time, short skirts were only seen in sport and dance clothing, such as skirts worn by female tennis players, figure skaters, cheerleaders, and dancers.

Best Ideas Are Never Very Creative

Best Ideas Are Never Very Creative 
By Jeffrey Paul Baumgartner via Creativity Post

If you are looking for truly original ideas, you need to remove the word "best" from your evaluation process. Brainstorms, ideas, campaigns and similar idea extravaganzas very often end with a vague notion of choosing the best idea. The problem is that a truly creative idea, the kind of idea that has the potential to become a breakthrough innovation, is seldom the best solution to the problem or the best path to achieving a goal -- for the very simple reason that highly creative ideas are original.

People helping people: the future of public services


 SOCIAL & Publications UK

  " People helping people: the future of public services"  

By Emma Clarence & Madeleine Gabriel via Nesta

Public services should be redesigned to make mobilising the energy and contribution of the public a core organising principle.

Key Findings:
There is a long tradition of people helping people, but there is the potential for far more to be done by people alongside and within public services. 
  •  
 Public services could do more to be open and create opportunities for citizens to use their talents and capabilities to support each other through social action.
  •  
In England, the economic contribution of social action in and alongside public services is £34 billion

Rising demand and resource constraints makes redesigning public services imperative. There is a long tradition of people helping people in the UK, but there is the potential for far more to be done. What is needed are more open public services that have the mobilisation of people as their core organising principle.

Lessons From Chile About Doing Good For The World

Why should poor people receive the most obsolete technologies—when their lives can be impacted the most by advances in technology? Should my education and talent be used to make rich and powerful corporations even more so—or to help those in need? These are questions that Alfredo Zolezzi agonized over after achieving early success as a scientist and entrepreneur.

Then he read a United Nations report that said that 884 million people are without access to safe drinking water and that 1.5 million children under five years of age die each year as a result of water- and sanitation-related diseases. This pushed him over the edge. He knew this was something that technology could easily help fix—though no one had done anything about it.

In this special report on the World's Most Innovative Companies, there are plenty of examples to make you a believer ("I've never been more excited about the possibilities ahead of us," Nike CEO Mark Parker recently told me). Our staff has spent more than six months gathering and analyzing data. To generate our list of the 50 Most Innovative Companies—and the accompanying top 10 companies in various sectors—we assessed thousands of enterprises. From all that work, I've pulled out 12 rising trends. Risk of failure and collapse are always with us. But the culture of innovation across the globe is more robust than ever. We think that's worth celebrating.
