Forget shots – diabetes smartphone app tells cells when to produce insulin

A diabetic mouse that has been implanted with engineered cells to produce insulin on demand via ...

Given that there are currently 415 million adults around the world with diabetes, it’s not surprising there’s a multi-billion dollar market for diabetic devices. Although technology has made managing the disease easier, it still involves taking blood samples to determine whether an insulin shot is needed, something that is fraught with complications since glucose levels can fluctuate due to a variety of reasons. But what if there was a way to trigger the body to produce insulin on demand? That’s exactly what a team of scientists from China has done by creating a system that uses a smartphone to direct engineered cells to produce insulin when needed.

The Facts Of Life Star Charlotte Rae Facing Cancer For The Second Time At Age 91 — Read Her Inspirational Words!

This is so sad — but her attitude is absolutely awe-inspiring!

Charlotte Rae, who played Edna Garrett first on Diff’rent Strokes and then for seven years on The Facts of Life, has just been diagnosed for the second time with cancer.

In an interview with People, the beloved comedienne revealed the awful news:

“Last Monday, I found out I have bone cancer. About seven years ago, I was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer — which is a miracle that they found it because usually it’s too late. My mother, sister and my uncle died of pancreatic cancer. After six months of chemotherapy, I was cancer-free. I lost my hair, but I had beautiful wigs. Nobody even knew.”

But Charlotte hasn’t let illness cost her the pep in her step. She’s facing this new challenge bravely and openly. She explains:

“So now, at the age of 91, I have to make up my mind. I’m not in any pain right now. I’m feeling so terrific and so glad to be above ground. Now I have to figure out whether I want to go have treatment again to opt for life. I love life. I’ve had a wonderful one already. I have this decision to make.”

She already canceled her treatment once, wishing to mull it over some more.

But she thinks she’s come to a decision now:

“I think I’m going to go for it. The side effects were not too bad when I did it originally. I’ve had a great life, but I have so many wonderful things happening. I’d like to chose life. I’m grateful for the life I’ve already had.”

Wow what an amazing way to look at things. And she wants all of us to share her view. She imparts:

“At 91, every day is a birthday… I want to tell everybody to celebrate every day, to savor the day and be good to yourself, love yourself, and then you can be good to others and be of service to others.”

What a wonderfully wise woman. No wonder they let her raise so many kids! Ha!

Wishing you all the best, Charlotte! We mean, Mrs. Garrett!

The 1975 Announce New Album ‘Music for Cars’

The 1975 have announced the follow-up to 2016’s I Like It When You Sleep, for You Are So Beautiful Yet So Unaware of It. Singer Matt Healy revealed the less wordy name of their forthcoming album, Music for Cars, during an interview with Zane Lowe on Beats 1 Radio on Thursday.

The singer also revealed a few more details about the third LP in the band’s planned trilogy. Amid talking about the band’s career trajectory – from getting a record deal to making art personal – and discussing artists who make subversive pop music, Healy dropped the news about their upcoming record.

“The next record’s called Music for Cars,” Healy told Lowe. “That’s the title and it references our second EP or our third EP.”

Healy also discussed the “eras” of the last two albums and said that their next record marks “an end of an era,” though that doesn’t necessarily signify a finale for the band.

Music for Cars has always been called that, and we were always gonna do a trilogy of records,” he said. “And I’m not saying that after this album it’s the end of the 1975, but it’s definitely the end of an era.”

As for if there are solo record plans in Healy’s near future, the singer recently told Rolling Stone that it wasn’t in the cards. “No – I mean, it’s not like the guys are getting in my way,” he said. “I think things like that happen when people want another creative outlet. I’ll just make a different-sounding 1975 record.”

Though Healy did not reveal an exact release date during his Beats 1 interview, he said Music for Cars would come out in 2018.
