Medfield Diagnostics Created the “Stroke Finder” to Determine Whether Head Injury is an Ischemic or Hemorrhagic Stroke Right on the Accident Scene

Life is unpredictable. We can never say when our time is up and we can’t even choose how we’d go. Although some may have a pretty good death story, some have nasty ones; some even beyond imagination. Some are lucky because some get a second chance at life. Time is of the essence, especially with […]

Teenagers Think Google Is Cool, Study by Google Finds

Today’s teenagers think Google and Google brands are cool, research funded by Google has found. Google published “It’s Lit: A guide to what teens think is cool,” a “magazine” compiling the results of its research into Generation Z, characterized as those aged from 13 to 17.

The Google-funded research found Generation Z relied on brands to “shape their world,” and that Google was the third-most cool. Cool was defined by the researchers as “unique, impressive, interesting, amazing, or awesome.”

YouTube, which Google owns, came out at number one ahead of Netflix. Google’s web browser Chrome placed tenth, in front of Nike.

1,100 teenagers aged 13-17 were asked to rank 122 brands by coolness and awareness.

YouTube, Google and Netflix ranked highly by both.

According to the surveyed teens, McDonalds, Yahoo, and Facebook Messenger were high-profile but not cool.

Doritos and Oreo were cool.

Vice was not cool.

Overall, the least cool brands were TMZ, the Wall Street Journal, Sprint and Yahoo. Respondents were least aware of Uniqlo, Patagonia and Supreme.

But those surveyed for the Google study were united in their appreciation of Google, with Millennials describing it as “serious and functional” and Generation Z finding it more “fun and functional.”

A 17-year-old woman in suburban Florida was quoted as saying that Google was “not only a powerful search engine, but great at everything it does, from email to documents.”

“Teens love learning and knowing” was researchers’ conclusion.

The study stated that 42.2% of Generation Z respondents used its social network Google Plus, putting it ahead of Twitter (35.4%) and Pinterest (26.6%) and only a little over 10% behind Facebook.

But the finding betrays the fact that a Google Plus account comes part and parcel with use of its other services such as Gmail. An independent study in 2015 suggested fewer than 1% of Google’s 2.2 billion users were active on…

Yosemite Tracking Daily Journey of Bears Online

Wildlife enthusiasts around the world can now follow the daily journey of Yosemite National Park’s black bears from their laptops and smartphones, tracking the iconic animals as they lope up steep canyons and cross vast distances in search of food and mates.

Park rangers told The Associated Press that they unveiled a website, Keep Bears Wild, on Monday showing where select bears fitted with GPS collars are heading. The tracking tool, which pings the bears’ steps from satellites, have already revealed surprises, wildlife biologists say.

“I think people are going to be blown away,” said Ryan Leahy, a wildlife biologist at Yosemite National Park who leads the project. “It’s our responsibility to keep bears wild. … It’s not hard to do. You just need to know how to do it.”

A bear’s location is delayed so people aren’t tempted to track it down in real time, rangers said. But the tracking collars alert rangers so they can block a bear from going to a campground or parking lot in search of food.

The goal of the website is to draw in the public so they know to slow down while driving and properly store food when they visit the park’s towering granite cliffs, charging waterfalls and abundant wildlife, including up to 500 black bears. Yosemite attracted more than 5 million visitors last year.

Too often, black bears — which are actually brown — are hit and killed by drivers on Yosemite’s winding roads. Last year, 28 bears were struck by cars, many fatally.

The park has used up to 20 GPS collars for the last three years, learning that bears in the park begin mating in May, more than a month earlier than previously thought, rangers said.

Leahy also said that the tracking device shows that bears move more than 30 miles (48 kilometers) in a day…
