Sexually Transmitted Infections Epidemic: Is Sex Education the Answer?

That was a rhetorical question!! A community based sexual health group has raised the alarm about the level of risky sexual behaviour among young people, saying ignorance on the subject could make young Australians vulnerable to HIV/AIDS. Alischa Ross, the founder of Youth Empowerment Against HIV AIDS – YEAH – says her group sends volunteers into schools and public events such as music festivals to educate young people about safe sex. There has been a 20 per cent increase in the rate of infection among young people in the last three years, with chlamydia and gonorrhoea among the biggest culprits. Ms Ross says the trend points to more risky behaviour and widespread complacency. Ross says although HIV is not a huge problem in Australia, it will become more of an issue in the near future, looking at the trends of HIV and what we’ve seen happen worldwide for the last 30 years, is that where there are high incidents of Sexually Transmitted Infections, HIV follows D★D  READ MORE

The Balloon Input Device, The Huggable Interface

Posted: November 16th, 2011 | Author: | Filed under: mcsixtyfive | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , | Comments Off on The Balloon Input Device, The Huggable Interface

Its not very often that a completely new interface comes along, even less common is a new interface that actually makes sense. The Balloon Input Device – BID – may just be a little bit of both, a rare whacky idea that may actually work. Using only two sensors the developers detect various actions, squeeze, rub, poke. A pressure sensor measures changes to the air pressure inside the balloon, with changes indicating a squeeze or poke. The microphone is able to detect movement over the balloons surface. A part of the new generation of tactile input devices, the next generation touch interface. At the moment the  BID only provides audio feedback when it senses one of the actions but this can easily be redirected to triggering other actions. B★B READ MORE

Sir Francis Drake, Vice Admiral Royal British Navy, was more than an English sea captain, privateer, navigator, slaver, and uber-politician of the Elizabethan era, his hijinx and adventurous life was held high in the minds of most throughout the last – 20th- century. Queen Elizabeth awarded Drake a knighthood in, he was second-in-command of the English fleet against the Spanish Armada in 1588. He also carried out the second circumnavigation of the world, from 1577 to 1580. He died of dysentery in January 1596 after unsuccessfully attacking San Juan, Puerto Rico. He was a real man our Drake, and until now we knew not where that man’s finally resting place was. More than four centuries after Drake went to his watery grave off Panama’s coast, archaeologists believe they have found two of the last ships he commanded.B★C READ MORE
