Used Pill Bottles Help Those Who Lack Medicine Storage In Malawi

While American medicine cabinets — and landfills — fill up with used pill bottles, many people in developing countries are being sent home with prescription medication wrapped in paper or nothing at all. A shortage of those little orange containers in countries like Malawi, in Africa,  means that many people  have a hard time keeping their medications clean, dry and out of reach of children. So when Richard Stephens , co-founder of  The Malawi Project , looked into his cluttered medicine cabinet one day, something clicked. In March, the Indianapolis-based charity put out a call  for Americans to mail in their used pill bottles, with the labels stripped off.

Woman Who Had Half Her Brain Removed Becomes Inspiring Speech Pathologist

By all accounts, Christina Santhouse has an aspirational life. At 28, she is married, owns her own home, attained a Master’s Degree and works a fulfilling job as a speech pathologist.  You would never suspect that on Feb. 13, 1996, she had half of her brain removed as a child. And 20 years after her surgery, she is thriving. When Santhouse was 7 years old, she was diagnosed with Rasmussen’s encephalitis , an inflammation of one hemispheres of the brain.

Here’s The Deal With Facebook’s New ‘Like’ Button

“Liking” something on Facebook is about to be a bit  passé . The company on Wednesday introduced sweeping changes to its social network that will let you react to content with a variety of emotions. The update is called “Reactions,” appropriately enough, and it’s been in the works for months . Sure, you can still “like” links, photos and status updates, but you’ll also be able to select more specific emoji-based reactions to communicate “Love,” “Haha,” “Wow,” “Sad” or “Angry.” A “Yay” reaction was previously tested but apparently axed for the final version.

NASA Time-Lapse Video Shows A Year In The Life Of The Sun

Catching a clear view of the sun at sunrise or sunset is a treat, but watching a full year of the sun’s activity in mere minutes? That’s scientific and cinematic magic. The time-lapse video , captured by NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory spacecraft, shows the sun’s entire 2015 — and it’s awesome. The footage shows the sun in extreme ultraviolet , a wavelength that human eyes normally cannot see. This allows us to view all of the activity that occurs in the sun’s atmosphere, including solar filaments (arcs of plasma), coronal mass ejections (large explosions of magnetized plasma) and solar flares (flashes of light caused by the sudden release of energy).

This Big Brother/Big Data Business Goes Way Beyond Apple and the FBI

The FBI and Apple Corp. may just be getting into it now over the legal and moral issues of data collection, but anyone who watches television knows it was only a matter of time. From CBS’s Person of Interest to USA’s Mr. Robot , Showtime’s upcoming Dark Net and every law enforcement show from NBC’s The Blacklist to CBS’s Scorpion (above), TV viewers have seen massive data collection hurtling toward us for years — perhaps at first as a futuristic Orwellian vision and now simply as the way it is. Now a new PBS film called The Human Face of Big Data (Wednesday, 10 p.m. ET) helpfully spells it out: Whatever information may or may not be waiting in one suspected terrorist’s phone, huge chunks of all our lives are being mined every day

The Problem With Millennials and Work Ethic

Dear Talia, After reading your post on Medium detailing the absolute struggle you dealt with while working for a Bay Area based corporation, I felt it imperative to address your concerns and above all, your obvious need for financial assistance. It sounds like you’ve hit some real post Haitian earthquake style hard times, so maybe some advice will help while you drink the incredibly expensive bourbon you posted on your Instagram account and eat that bag of rice, which was the only other thing you could afford! My name is Stefanie. I’m not much older than you. I will be turning the big 3-0 in three weeks time. It seems like a lifetime ago I sat in my sophomore year apartment crying about how I would never again be able to relate to “Baba O’Riley” or “Scenes from an Italian Restaurant.” But here I am, having survived my 20s with some grace and a lot of humility. However, despite our less-than-a-decade difference in age, it seems we are worlds apart in the concept of work ethic

Inventor of BitTorrent Explains Why Manufacturers Will Stop Making Your Products Hackable

These questions originally appeared on Quora – the knowledge sharing network where compelling questions are answered by people with unique insights . Answers by Bram Cohen , Inventor of BitTorrent, on Quora . Q: Should Apple be forced to de-crypt the iPhone to help the San Bernadino investigation? A: First, it should be pointed out that the central issue in the iPhone case isn’t one of cryptography, it’s tamper resistance. If you use a randomly generated 20 digit PIN then nobody will be able to forcibly unlock your iPhone even with the help of Apple, the NSA, and the Illuminati. When you have a short PIN the issue is one of physical tamper resistance.
