People-Powered Medical Devices?

by Alison

Cocaine Vaccine – Curing Addiction in One Shot?

by Julie

Drug addiction is a plague on society, watching someone succumb to an addiction is a horrible thing. Tearing apart families and causing untold amounts of physical and emotional pain. It must take a tremendous amount of emotional strength to fully recover from something like a true addiction. Luckily, I can’t imagine being in a situation like that, but what if someone I loved was?

by Julie

One of the scariest health epidemics of my generation was HIV.

It doesn’t seem to be big news anymore, but it’s still killing people all over the world. Well, OraSure, the company that brought us the first healthcare administered oral specimen HIV test available …

Presta – for When You Want it Now!

I remember my first apartment, it had orange tweed carpeting, but it was lovingly furnished with rental furniture, and I found it to be a whole lot nicer than my moms old couch, or having the common “mattress on the floor” scenario found in many first apartments.

OUYA – Thinking way Inside the Box

by Julie

I probably shouldnt admit it, but I clearly remember our very first video game console. The Magnavox Odyssey. My parents brought it home, and I was mesmerized as it was hooked up to the TV, so many games choices (both Pong and Hockey) and I was able to sit in front of it for hours, with anyone willing to play.
