About 9 weeks ago Hearing for the Deaf — Cochlear implants with no exterior hardware

An MIT development team has developed a special chip that could eventually pave the way for the production of cochlear implants without any external hardware. The low-power, signal-processing chip would allow implants to use the natural microphone of the inner ear instead of artificial microphones attached outside the ear; in most cochlear implant patients, the natural microphone is intact. The implant would be wirelessly recharged ➜ goo.gl/LACOeV

About 10 weeks ago The most meaningful way to compare wages across countries or regions is always to compare them against the local cost of living. This can be complicated, because it isn't always easy to define what a basic living package is: people eat different foods in different areas, have different transport needs, and so on. (For example, if you live in a place where you need a car to get to your job, that car is going to be part of your most minimal cost of living -- but if you can walk or train to work, it isn't) Likewise, there are some goods which simply aren't available everywhere, like clean water.

So this chart, despite being a quick piece of work by someone, is actually surprisingly informative. Beer is something which is available and commonly consumed around the world, (with a few notable exceptions like Utah and Saudi Arabia) and it takes up roughly the same role in the dietary hierarchy in all of these places. So despite not being part of the "core" of anyone's diet, the p
