3D printing technology has been advancing dramatically over the past 20 years to the point where we are now seeing desktop 3D printers developed for personal use. What if we could utilize a similar technology to create a model and print Ebola Care Ce

My friends and I use nutrition and fitness tracking apps daily to track overall activity and health. These apps can also be linked to some sort of fitness tracking device, such as a Fit Bit, to more accurately and quickly grab fitness information.

Shannon commented on Think Outside the Hive

I love your business and idea! I visited a winery in California a year ago, where they were doing a workshop on Bee Keeping. I had no idea there was actually a business centered around bringing bees to farms in order to pollinate their crops - due to the fact that bees are not naturally found in those areas.  Good luck!

Hi Grace, thank you for your follow up! I believe the barriers include many of those listed in Jamie's comment above., which seem to cover all of the items you listed - lack of ability, awareness, will, and resources. Some of the same tools that may be used to prevent the spread in the living could also be used for the deceased. I'm interested to see how the ideas evolve!
