Vaginal Speaker Lets Unborn Babies Listen To Music In Utero

Parents-to-be now have a new way of connecting with their unborn babies. Introducing Babypod, a small speaker that pregnant women can insert into their vaginas to play music for their uterine inhabitants.  Put simply, Babypod is more or less a “musical tampon”  that lets fetuses listen to music or other sounds in utero.  Developed in Spain, Babypod was inspired by research from Institut Marquès, a Barcelona-based medical center focused on gynecology and assisted reproduction.  Dr. Marisa López-Teijón from Institut Marquès told The Huffington Post that her team studies  the influence of music on embryonic and fetal development .”We’ve conducted a study showing that musical vibrations increase the chances that the sperm fertilizes the egg, i.e. that music improves IVF,” she said.  Having found better results in in-vitro fertilization through musical vibrations for embryos, the researchers decided to apply their idea to fetuses. López-Teijón and her team placed speakers on pregnant women’s abdomens during ultrasounds but found no fetal reaction. “In fact, gynecologists had never observed in an ultrasound a change on the fetus as a reaction to external noises or the voice of the mother,” the doctor explained. “We decided that we had to bring closer to them the source of sound,” she continued

Here’s How India Can Become a More Prosperous, Green Economy

NEW DELHI — Six years ago the Copenhagen climate conference ended without an agreement in the midst of unprecedented acrimony. In December, the Paris conference ended in a robust agreement. The contrast between the two outcomes underlines how, as temperatures have risen and extreme weather events have followed each other in rapid succession, awareness of the threat posed by relentless global warming has grown among the policymakers of the world. In retrospect, the lion’s share of the credit for the agreement must go to President Obama. When he descended on the Copenhagen summit during its last days, he reportedly burst into a meeting being held by South Africa, Brazil, China and India, and struck a separate deal that allowed countries to set their own targets for emissions reduction in exchange for offers of financial help.

New Years Food Mood

Every New Year, food-related goals make their way to my top five New Year resolutions; however, after interacting with four young founders of two food-based startups in New York City, I’ve learned to keep a more wholesome mindset as goals around food and dietary consumption create a ripple effect around food waste, healthy living, and overconsumption for local populations. Transfernation and Sani are two startups based out of Manhattan working to combat the city’s hunger problem and catalyze healthy living lifestyles. Sani is a vegan-based meal replacement personalized to the consumer’s unique dietary needs and contains every nutrient your body needs. Transfernation is a non-profit group that has rescued over 10,000 pounds of cuisine since it began its operations in October 2014. Both pairs of founders, Samir Goel and Hannah Dehradunwala of Transfernation, and Sebastian Garcia and Danielle Soto of Sani, started their organizations with conversations over food

Social Media Trends 2016

Brands, agencies, and marketers working in digital media will tell you, innovation happens so rapidly that predicting future trends and reviewing trends from previous years can either be illuminating, or a subtle evolution, as platforms attempt to better monetize their offerings from the previous year’s developments. For example, with the popularity of the Millennial target as a marketing focus, last year, brands became more interested in Snapchat, although Snapchat had already launched Stories and Discover back in 2013 and 2014. However, as a result of Snapchat’s growing popularity among this target, as well as messaging trends around with the world along the likes of LINE, WhatsApp, WeChat, and Kik, we saw a larger movement from major platforms like Facebook and Instagram to develop enhanced messaging capabilities. In 2015, companies serving the industry like Union Metrics, Spredfast, and Sprinklr, continued to acquire, merge, and develop their offerings in an attempt to become all-in-one solutions more sophisticated in their ability to track, measure, and curate content. Looking to 2016, we expect to see improvements when it comes to the accuracy of measurement capabilities, the integration of tracking paid performance, and refining clunky or overwhelming U/X issues. Additionally, the following five trends will continue to drive best-in-class social media marketing.

12 Resolutions That Could Save Your Identity in 2016

Another New Year is upon us. Bring on another raft of resolutions I say! I mean, what would a New Year be in the absence of resolutions? As Aldous Huxley wrote in Time Must Have a Stop , “Hell isn’t merely paved with good intentions; it’s walled and roofed with them. Yes, and furnished too.” This year, I am advocating something simple: It’s high time we (as in all of us – business, government and consumers) stop making it so easy for scammers, phishers and identity thieves.
