  • This Dutch town will soon have special traffic lights for zombie smartphone addicts

    Smartphone users with their head dug deep into their smartphones pose a serious problem to the traffic authorities world over. Users who turn practically zombies when they are walking or driving are a threat not only to themselves but cause accidents which can turn fatal.

    The officials in the Dutch city Bodegraven have found out a way to control these zombie smartphone users by installing special traffic lights for them.

    They are testing traffic lights that are created for pedestrians using mobile phones who are not looking at the road and not traffic.

  • Tiny Device Allows You To Track Your Car Using Your Smartphone

    Have you ever lost your car on a parking lot? It happens. You park and go shopping. When you get back, you don't have a clue where your car is. Then you start roaming around clicking on the panic button on your car keys so the alarm goes off. It can be frustrating, especially on a hot, sunny day.

    No, you don't need to install an expensive GPS system to keep track of your car. That's way too expensive. You would need to pay a monthly subscription fee just to use it. Don't we have enough bills to pay already?

    A California-based startup company was able to make this a reality. They created a tiny device that works with your smartphone, and it could be exactly what you're looking for! Read more here

  • 64-Year Old Woman Gives Birth to Healthy Twins

     DireTube News -  A 64-year old pregnant woman has had a peaceful relief as we say in Ethiopia. The Spanish Woman gave birth to twins in at the Recoletas Hospital in Spain on Wednesday, February 16, 2016 after having received fertility treatment in the United States, according to media in Spain.

    A team of two gynecologists, two pediatricians, two midwives and a handful of nurses are reported to have contributed to the successful pregnancy

    This pregnancy was the woman’s second at the hospital where she gave birth to her first daughter in 2011. She lost custody of her daughter in 2014 after the Spanish government deemed her unfit to take care of her.

    Enrique Martin, a director at Recoletas Hospital is talking with Spanish social services to assess the woman’s ability to successfully raise the healthy set of newborn twins.

    This is not, by far, a world record which was set in 2016, and is held by an Indian woman, Daljinder Kaur, 70, who gave birth to a son, Arman (‘wish’ in Hindi)also after treatment at a fertility clinic.

    Research indicates that complications increase for mothers as they age. There is also the concern of child care as elderly parents close to the average life expectancy are more likely to be unemployed or pass on leaving children destitute and without guardians.

    Pregnancies over 40 are deemed by many physicians as higher risk pregnancies leading to problems with blood pressure among other things in mothers.  Many cite Dr. Ruth M. Farrel of the prestigious Cleveland Clinic who said: “Data shows that as maternal age increases, so do the risk of health complications for the pregnant woman.” (CBS News).

    The unidentified Spanish woman is the second oldest from her country to give birth, Carmen Bousada was two years older than her at 67 when she gave birth in 2006.
