Would you like to see, in real time, which stories, videos, galleries and images are going viral right now…… on any topic, from any source?”  That’s how these folks describe their interesting effort to combine breaking news with the verity of the web.

Every day these people index hundreds of thousands of new links from across the Internet and constantly measure their number of likes, tweets, pins and video views. They compare the numbers and the current rate of increase per hour is calculated and stored.

All of this information can be searched and filtered by keyword,  source(s), authors and several other properties. The final output can be sorted in various ways (highest to lowest total likes, by current rate of increase and by tweet count.

The result is a right up-to-the -minute look at what is currently trending or about to trend on any topic and/or from any source on the web.

They say that their system “has no human editors at all…” (Must be run by monkeys!)

Apartments are shrinking – especially in the big cites where developers are trying to deliver more affordable housing. So, with smaller and smaller living spaces, they have to fit all the things renters need into this shrinking space – including beds, desks, closets and storage.

Their storage system doubles or triples the usable space in a room by packing all the occupant’s stuff into ceiling modules — then raising and lowering those modules as needed.

At night, when she is ready, the resident lets her phone app know when she wants to sleep. The bed comes down and she zzzs off.  In the morning, the bed goes up and the desk comes down. Also, if it’s cold — temperature up. Think of it as just-in-time at your fingertips living.  You can start looking at real estate in volume rather than in square feet.  You are already paying for it — now you can start using all this air and ceiling space you have ignored for years.

If you are a veteran – or know a veteran – you will want to know about this new innovation in medical catering.

Veterans who have a health problem like diabetes, chronic heart failure, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), depression or post-traumatic stress disorder, find that getting treatment can be downright inconvenient – especially for older veterans who want to live independently at home. Because of this many eventually go into a nursing home where their symptoms and vital signs (pulse, weight, temperature etc) can be checked frequently.

Now the Department of Veterans’ Affairs is offering a system that connects Veterans in their homes to medical support using regular telephone lines, cellular, the Internet and cell phones. This changes the location where health care services can be routinely provided – and is a giant step to improving convenient care for veterans.  Good stuff. We’re getting to the point where occasionally we can believe them when they “We’re here to help you.”
