    In a twist on traditional smart-phone accessories, researchers have demonstrated fluorescent microscopy using a physical attachment to an ordinary cell phone. The contraptiona tube-like extension hooked onto the cell phone with a modified belt clipworks just like a traditional microscope, using a series of lenses that magnify blood or spit samples on a microscope slide. To detect TB, for example, a spit sample is infused with an inexpensive dye called auramine. The cell phone approach is very valuable for all parts of the world where [medical] resources are scarce, says Aydogan Ozcan, an assistant professor of electrical engineering at UCLA, who is working to develop a lens-free method for mobile cell imaging. You need a dark room, a mercury lamp, and a lot of training.

    Building Upon Other Digital Currencies Like other digital currencies such as Bitcoin, the Ripple Protocol enables peer-to-peer transaction settlement across a decentralized network of computers. As a result, Ripple circumvents many of the fees and reduces many of the risks involved in interbank funds transfers, particularly in international transactions. Unlike other digital currency protocols, however, the Ripple Protocol is currency agnostic and users are not required to transact in the Protocol’s native currency (XRP). In addition, the technology enables near real-time settlement (three to six seconds) and is built to route each international transaction to the cheapest FX bid/ask spread available in the network.

    Ripple simplifies interbank payments at the infrastructure-level Ripple is technology for routing payments and settling funds - it does not replace the existing networks (e.g. ACH in the US, BACS in the UK, international wire), but enables them to become faster, cheaper, and more interconnected. Banks, clearinghouses, and governments can build simple, powerful interbank payment networks on top of Ripple, enabling payment execution and fund settlement to occur simultaneously and in real time

    What is Ripple? Ripple is an Internet protocol for making financial transactions. You can use Ripple to send money anywhere in the world in any currency, instantly, and for free. What is an Internet protocol? An Internet protocol is a set of rules designed to enable computers connected to the Internet communicate with each other. Examples of Internet protocols • The protocol HTTP (Hypertext Transfer Protocol) is a set of rules for building and sharing websites. The invention of HTTP led to the World Wide Web. • The protocol SMTP (Simple Mail Transfer Protocol) is a set of rules for sending messages on the Internet. The invention of SMTP made it possible to send emails across a distributed network. • The protocol RTXP (Ripple Transaction Protocol) is a set of rules for making transactions on the Internet. The invention of RTXP makes it possible to transfer value across a distributed network. Like email for money.

    Ripple is a universal protocol for money that allows independent payment systems to communicate as easily as email systems do. Just as SMTP created a shared standard for email, Ripple creates a shared standard for payments. As with email, no one owns Ripple, and there is no central operator. Ripple is open source software that allows servers all over the world to communicate peer-to-peer financial transactions to one another. If the Ripple protocol becomes the standard protocol for money, payments will become as fast, cheap, and easy as email. There are no network fees, and payments are instant.

    Objectives: To examine levels and patterns of HIV prevalence, knowledge, sexual behavior, and coverage of selected HIV services among adolescents aged 10–19 years and highlight data gaps and challenges. Methods: Data were reviewed from Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS HIV estimates, nationally representative household surveys, behavioral surveillance surveys, and published literature. Results: A number of gaps exist for adolescent-specific HIVrelated data; however, important implications for programming can be drawn. Eighty-two percent of the estimated 2.1 million adolescents aged 10–19 years living with HIV in 2012 were in sub-Saharan Africa, and the majority of these (58%) were females. Comprehensive accurate knowledge about HIV, condom use, HIV testing, and antiretroviral treatment coverage remain low in most countries. Early sexual debut (sex before 15 years of age) is more common among adolescent girls than boys in low- and middle-income countries, consistent with early marriage and early childbirth in these countries. In low and concentrated epidemic countries, HIV prevalence is highest among key populations. Conclusions: Although the available HIV-related data on adolescents are limited, increased HIV vulnerability in the second decade of life is evident in the data. Improving data gathering, analysis, and reporting systems specific to adolescents is essential to monitoring progress and improving health outcomes for adolescents. More systematic and better quality disaggregated data are needed to understand differences by sex, age, geography, and socioeconomic factors and to address equity and human rights obligations, especially for key populations.

    The National TB Programme (NTP) of Nepal is generally regarded as highly successful both nationally and internationally. The programme has never previously been studied to identify the key success factors both from the perspective of technical TB control implementation and generic health service functions. The impact of Health Sector Reform (HSR) on programmes such as TB control is a live topic of debate internationally and also in Nepal where an HSR process is currently in the late stages of planning. From these two perspectives Nepal provided an ideal case study opportunity to examine the NTP in the climate of imminent HSR. This work was commissioned by the World Bank. Two short-term consultants (one national, one international) with considerable working experience of TB control in Nepal were contracted to undertake the review over a two-week period in late autumn 2002. Information was gathered by interviews, site visits, correspondence and the examination of relevant documentation (in English). The world literature on HSR and TB control was explored to provide a framework for the work. The document was peer-reviewed prior to publication

    This document highlights a broad range of specific and practical opportunities for improving the health of women and children while also generating value for private enterprise. We call this “shared value”. It provides information about the health needs of women and children in developing and emerging economies to help companies identify where they can have the greatest impact. Private Enterprise for Public Health aspires to catalyse a collective approach to creating transformative partnerships to help to save the lives of 16 million women and children. These partnerships need to be sustainable and scalable and include a broad range of stakeholders to make lasting progress. While this document provides practical opportunities for private enterprises to engage in improving women’s and children’s health, we expect the business community to behave responsibly and to respect human rights in general (and women’s and children’s rights in particular). We also expect private enterprises to uphold the principles of preventing harm and actively safeguarding women’s and children’s interests within their own operations in the marketplace and the community (a list of relevant principles is listed in the references section). This guide originated in collaboration with the Innovation Working Group (IWG) in support of Every Woman Every Child. The Partnership for Maternal, Newborn & Child Health (PMNCH), which hosts the secretariat of IWG, developed this guide with social impact consultants FSG, in collaboration with the World Health Organization (WHO) and the United Nations Foundation (UNF), supported by the Norwegian Agency for Development Cooperation (Norad). Contributors include Yegii global health experts.

    This report is intended as a guide for state and federal policymakers on the many issues that this technology raises. After surveying the advantages and disadvantages of the technology, RAND researchers determined that the benefits of the technology likely outweigh the disadvantages. The industry now appears close to substantial change, engendered by autonomous, or "self-driving," vehicle technologies. For the past hundred years, innovation within the automotive sector has created safer, cleaner, and more affordable vehicles, but progress has been incremental. The report also explores policy issues, communications, regulation and standards, and liability issues raised by the technology; and concludes with some tentative guidance for policymakers, guided largely by the principle that the technology should be allowed and perhaps encouraged when it is superior to an average human driver.

    Understanding the mechanisms that underlie the benefits of male circumcision could help to identify new intervention strategies for decreasing HIV transmission, applicable to populations with high HIV prevalence where male circumcision is culturally less acceptable. Male circumcision reduces female-to-male HIV transmission. Specifically, the prevalence and absolute abundance of 12 anaerobic bacterial taxa decreased significantly in the circumcised men. Hypothesized mechanisms for this protective effect include decreased HIV target cell recruitment and activation due to changes in the penis microbiome. IMPORTANCE The bacterial changes identified in this study may play an important role in the HIV risk reduction conferred by male circumcision.

    Bitcoin was designed first and foremost to facilitate online payments and it is as a payment system that I believe it will have its initial significant impact on business. On a daily basis we rely on conventional payment networks such as Visa, MasterCard and Interac. Now more than ever, businesses that want to be competitive must utilize electronic payments in selling their goods and services. The use of cheques and cash has been in steady decline for many years while e-commerce and electronic payments continue to grow year after year

    To get the full sense of why Bitcoin matters, you have to start thinking of it not as a currency, nor as a payment system, but as a protocol—that is, a series of rules for exchange of information among computers in a network. The applications we all know and love are built on top of protocols. The World Wide Web, for example, was built atop TCP/IP, the protocol underlying the Internet.

    Open Innovation is an attractive business model. There is often resistance towards true open innovation. The 3rd party innovation market is maturing. The next generation open innovation is very different. Increased trust in disintermediation has created opportunities at the higher end of the spectrum. Realizing the true potential of opening up innovation has to do with mobilizing employees and executives to share thoughts with the outside, not just receive input. Expert network? That’s you.

    This report is intended to support government technical specialists, development partners, civil society organizations and adolescent and youth groups considering or planning a country rapid assessment on adolescents and HIV. The report aims to help this audience: 1. Understand the data-driven planning process that was used in Botswana, Cameroon, Jamaica, Swaziland and Zimbabwe to help prioritize adolescent populations, programme interventions and priority geographic areas to accelerate HIV results in adolescents. 2. Identify and discuss key programmatic and other contextual and cross- sectoral challenges and coverage gaps in the delivery of results for adolescents in HIV and related sectors. 3. Understand the cross-sectoral opportunities and linkages to health, education, protection and other relevant areas identified in the five countries as strategic platforms for leveraging improved HIV results in adolescents.

    Paul Farmer is a medical anthropologist/physician who clearly and poignantly articulated the links between 'structural violence' and poor health. He began his critical global health career in Haiti, which is the ideal location to actually 'see' how the political and economic decisions made by the US and France translate into devastating health status for Haitians, hence 'structural violence'. The knowledge asset proposed reflects Farmer's recent work in West Africa to collaborate with West Africans on erecting a human rights, community-informed ebola response. I base my suggestion that we work at the household and community level to stop the Ebola outbreak is repeated here: "Transmission is person to person, and in the absence of an effective medical system, it occurs wherever care is given: in households, clinics and hospitals, and where the dead are tended." I also like this piece because it pushes back against the geographic racism that underpins the rich world's response to the Ebola crisis. And, it positions West Africans' skepticism and distrust of 'external experts' within a historical legacy of exploitation and oppression.

    Nevada thus became the first jurisdiction in the world where autonomous vehicles might be legally operated on public roads. Since then, numerous major companies and research organizations have developed working prototype autonomous vehicles. In June 2011, the Nevada Legislature passed a law to authorize the use of autonomous cars. The first self-sufficient (and therefore, truly autonomous) cars appeared in the 1980s, with Carnegie Mellon University's Navlab and ALV projects in 1984 and Mercedes-Benz and Bundeswehr University Munich's Eureka Prometheus Project in 1987. The first self-sufficient and truly autonomous cars appeared in the 1980s, with Carnegie Mellon University's Navlab[14] and ALV[15][16] projects in 1984 and Mercedes-Benz and Bundeswehr University Munich's EUREKA Prometheus Project [17] in 1987.

    This study explores decision makers’ perspectives on evidence-based policy (EBP) development using the case of TB/HIV co-infection in India. Twelve in-depth interviews were conducted with purposively selected key national and international policy decision makers in India. Verbatim transcripts were processed and analysed thematically using QSR (NUD*IST 6). The decision makers were unequivocal in recognizing the TB/HIV co-infection as an important public health issue in India and stated the problem to be different than Africa. The need of having a “third programme” for co-infection was not felt. According to them, the public health management of this co-infection must be within the realm of these two programmes. The study also emphasized on decision makers’ perspectives on evidence and the process of utilization of evidence for decision-making for co-infection. Study findings showed global evidence was not always accepted by the decision makers and study shows several examples of decision makers demanding local evidence for policy decisions. Decision makers did make interim policies based on global evidence but most of the time their mandate was to get local evidence. Thus, operations research/implementation science especially multi-centric studies emerge as important strategy for EBP development. Researcher–policy maker interface was a gap where role of researcher as aggressive communicator of research findings was expected.
