    Dr. John All, an American academic, crawled for nine hours with a broken arm and ribs after falling down an ice crevasse in Nepal. After the accident he said:
    My body was shattered and I was in agony. My face hit one wall, my back and stomach hit the back wall and I bounced between them. My face was pretty torn up. I landed on a piece of ice at a midpoint.
    I could have fallen another 100 metres and it's amazing I didn't. The entire time climbing out I knew if I slipped I would have been dead.

    The DEKA Arm System
    Gear  |  Tech  


    Last week, the FDA approves the Deka arm, the first commercial mind-controlled prosthetic arm. The new Deka arm (codenamed Luke, after Luke Skywalker’s artificial hand) was developed by Dean Kamen, inventor of the Segway. The Deka Arm System is a battery-powered device that blends multiple approaches. Some of the Deka’s functions are controlled by myoelectricity, which means the device senses movement in various muscle groups via attached electrodes, then converts those muscle movements into motor control. This allows the user a more natural and (theoretically) intuitive method of controlling the arm rather than relying on a cross-body pulley system. The more advanced myoelectric systems can even transmit sensation back to the user.

    A map of the worst countries in the world in which to be a
    Gear  |  Pic  
    The International Trade Union Confederation (ITUC), a trade group alliance that works to improve laborers' rights around the globe, released its Global Rights Index this week. Countries are ranked from 1 (best) to 5 (worst) on a scale of how well they guard workers' rights. Cambodia, Qatar, and Guatemala were among the worst offenders.
    "The ITUC Global Rights Index ranks 139 countries against 97 internationally recognised indicators to assess where workers’ rights are best protected, in law and in practice.
    “Countries such as Denmark and Uruguay led the way through their strong labour laws, but perhaps surprisingly, the likes of Greece, the United States and Hong Kong, lagged behind,” said ITUC general secretary Sharan Burrow.
    "A country’s level of development proved to be a poor indicator of whether it respected basic rights to bargain collectively, strike for decent conditions, or simply join a union at all.”
    Key findings:
    • In the past year, governments of at least 35 countries have arrested or imprisoned workers as a tactic to resist demands for democratic rights, decent wages, safer working conditions and secure jobs.
    • In at least 9 countries murder and disappearance of workers were commonly used to intimidate workers.
    • Workers in at least 53 countries have been dismissed or suspended for attempting to negotiate better working conditions.
    • Laws and practices in at least 87 countries exclude certain type of workers from the right to strike."

    Dubai Police Will Use Google Glass
    Gear  |  News  
    Police in Dubai have begun using Google Glass as part of an effort to crack down on traffic violations. This week traffic officers are testing the wearable devices, and they intend to use the wearable gadget to identify wanted vehicles and also to issue fines to motorists. The Dubai Police developed two custom applications: one to capture and upload photos of traffic violators, and another to identify wanted cars based on licensed plate numbers.
    "If it passes our testing criteria as well as we see that it is a useful device, then we might decide to launch it and buy more of it," Al Razooqi said. Using the apps developed by his unit, police can capture and upload photos to the department's database by tapping the side of the headset, and can capture license numbers simply by looking at a car's plates. These numbers will be automatically cross-referenced against a central database to flag any wanted cars.
