These researchers are driving health equity with Fitbit

Under-resourced communities across the country have long faced disparities in health due to structural and long-standing inequities. Unfortunately, the pandemic has further widened many of these gaps. Still, health equity research in digital health remains limited. To help address these issues, we announced the Fitbit Health Equity Research Initiative earlier this year to help support underrepresented researchers who are early in their careers and working to address health disparities in comm...

How Making a Funny Face Could Boost the Security of Face Unlock Features

Securing a device using your face is much easier than remembering a PIN or password, but the technology is not infallible.

Why is paper still so magical?

As a researcher on the Artificial Intelligence User Experience team (AIUX) at Google, I spend a lot of time thinking about technology’s role in creativity. Over the past year, I've been interviewing folks about creativity, idea generation and the technology they use, and one little comment always made it into every conversation: “I prefer paper.” And honestly, I feel the same way. Looking across my desk, I see a carefully curated grid of sticky notes arranged to signify their priority and layere...

Do you need a doctorate in composition?

Do you need a doctorate in composition? No, you don’t. But that doesn’t mean that it doesn’t have value. In the nearly twenty years that I have been teaching composition at universities and conservatories, the most common question I am asked by students not already in doctoral programs is which ones they should apply to. The assumption of these young composers is that the next logical or expected step in the progression of their musical development is to seek an advanced degree in a field where...

Tuberculosis And 'Failure': Who Should Bear The Label?

Graciella* waited until she left the clinic before dissolving into tears. “I don’t understand how this happened,” she weeps, “I just don’t understand it.” Graciella had gone to the health center early that morning—skipping a day of work that she could ill-afford—with a kernel of hope in her heart.  After all, she had spent the last 12 months putting up the fight of her life.  When her husband Hector died coughing blood in the hospital, Graciella thought her tears would never dry. TB is so comm...

Want to Start School Later? You May Want to Move to California

If Senator Anthony Portantino gets his way, California will be the first state in the nation to ensure that teenagers can go to school without sacrificing a good night's sleep. This week he introduced SB328, a bill that would require California school districts to start middle and high school classes no earlier than 8:30 a.m. "Every year we discuss as parents, educators, and legislators, best practices and interests of the children and education," says Portantino. "Well, data is clear: startin...

On the economics of economists

We economists spend a lot of time writing about the job market. Can the unemployment rate drop any further? Will the number of unemployed people increase when the Fed starts to raise interest rates? And will wages begin to pick up if the unemployment rate does drop? To pursue these questions, economists construct theoretical models of the labor market, gather hiring and wage data from a variety of industries and regions, and–in the United States–pore over the monthly employment situation report ...

Here's How President Trump And Incoming HHS Secretary Tom Price Can End The Nation's Addiction Crisis

With the fate of the Affordable Care Act still up in the air, it's not clear what health care will look like under President-elect Donald Trump. But as the opioid crisis rages on, Trump's administration can't afford to waste any time without a concrete plan to combat this epidemic. Last November, the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) released its first-ever Surgeon General's Report focused specifically on drug misuse and abuse in the United States. Here are the keys to an effectiv...

Medicine Or Health Risk? Parents Prescribed Medical Marijuana Are Clashing With Federal Agencies

Medical marijuana use in the United States is more prevalent than ever before. Twenty-six states have legalized marijuana for medical purposes, seven of which have also legalized it for recreational use. But parents prescribed medical marijuana are beginning to see a backlash against the drug that could cost them custody of their children. Health conditions including epilepsy and chronic pain can be so severe that people with these diagnoses can struggle to live a normal life. For some patients...

Make Your 2017 New Year's Resolution Stick: Here's How

Most people who make New Year's resolutions fail to follow through on them. Half of all Americans make a New Year's resolution, yet as few as 8% of them are successful at making that resolution a reality. Here are tips for being in that small, but successful group that is able to make meaningful and lasting change in their lives. 1. Set tangible goals. Saying, "I want to lose weight," isn't measurable and likely won't be attainable. Writing down, "I will lose ten pounds by the end of March," i...

Sainsbury’s Greatest Gift

Sainsbury’s, a supermarket chain in the UK, is running “The Greatest Gift”, an advertising campaign centred on a stop motion animation short film.

Comprehensive Vision On Homelessness Is Already Here

This week, we heard news of another rise in the homeless population in NYC's shelters. Mayor de Blasio said he is formulating a "comprehensive vision" on homelessness. A comprehensive vision is precisely what is needed -- comprehensive enough to include educational supports, mental health services, job training and other on-site shelter services to put, and keep, families in their own homes. Homelessness is not a lack of housing; it is a lack of housing stability. There will never be enough af...

Fighting for Veterans and What Veterans Fought For

The election is over and the country is rent in two. It doesn't matter if your candidate for president, governor, congressperson or mayor won or lost. This nation has been through a great fracturing, a division that started many years ago and has risen to a pitch that I don't know anyone has seen in this country in our lifetime. The level of viciousness and dissatisfaction reminds me of what I read about before the US Civil War, and should we fail to stem the nastiness of our national discourse...

A New Path To Ending Family Homelessness

An October 30, 2016 editorial in the New York Post noted that the Mayor had no long-term plan to reduce family homelessness. That's not necessarily true. The de Blasio Administration does have a plan, it's just the wrong one. They think that more affordable housing and temporary rental vouchers will reduce homelessness. They won't. Homelessness isn't and never has been simply about housing; it is about housing stability, a family's ability to maintain a stable housing situation. Any number o...

Voting Yes For Medical Or Recreational Marijuana Legalization Will Probably Save Lives: Your Vote Matters

This year's election is already underway and while most of us are paying attention to the presidential candidates, there are a lot of other elected positions and ballot measures that are important to consider.

As an addiction treatment professional who closely follows healthcare issues, I urge you to consider a yes vote if your state has a marijuana legalization me...

Two Women, One Drug: A Failure Of Compassion In The Global Response To Drug-Resistant Tuberculosis

Fatima and Asa, two women in their early thirties, might never have met if life had been more kind to them both. Asa was finishing nursing school while living a middle-class life with her husband and three young children in a two-story home in the capital city.  Fatima was a mother of five who grew up in deep poverty and was still struggling for survival in a one-room shack on the outskirts of town.   But on the drug-resistant tuberculosis (TB) ward of the city chest hospital, they found the...

How To Build The 'Village' You Need As A Caregiver

Halima Amjad is like millions of Americans whose world radically changed when her father was diagnosed with dementia. She, her mother, and her two adult sisters were suddenly thrust into the role of family caregivers.

Apples And Honey, But No Wine: Here's How The High Holidays Can Support Your Recovery
