"A promising test for pancreatic cancer from a teenager"

Jack Andraka at  Ted talks

Over 85 percent of all pancreatic cancers are diagnosed late, when someone has less than two percent chance of survival. How could this be? Jack Andraka talks about how he developed a promising early detection test for pancreatic cancer that's super cheap, effective and non-invasive — all before his 16th birthday.

Jack Andraka created a Cancer detector, which is a paper on carbon nanotubes, a biology lecture on antibodies and a flash of insight led 15-year-old Jack Andraka to design a cheaper, more sensitive cancer detector.

" Well Writing Your Way to Happiness"

The scientific research on the benefits of so-called expressive writing is surprisingly vast. Studies have shown that writing about oneself and personal experiences can improve mood disorders, help reduce symptoms among cancer patients, improve a person’s health after a heart attack, reduce doctor visits and even boost memory.

Now researchers are studying whether the power of writing — and then rewriting — your personal story can lead to behavioral changes and improve happiness.

Innovative Spaces

Space matters. It affects the way we work, think and interact. That’s why building environments that encourage creative collaboration has become a central issue for organisations and city planners globally.  From the corporate Googleplex to the startup accelerator and the innovation campus, billions are being spent on the innovative work-scapes of the future.

The ‘architecture of innovation’ is not itself anything new.  Sixty years ago biologist Jonas Salk claimed his discovery of the polio vaccine only came when he swapped his basement lab for an Italian monastery which eventually became the template for the iconic Louis Kahn-designed Salk Institute.  Yet uninspiring architecture can still be great idea generators from MIT’s leaky Building 20 to the garage startups of Silicon Valley.
