Tiny Wearable Device Warns of Exposure to UV Light
Northwestern Medicine and Northwestern’s McCormick School of Engineering scientists have developed what is being called the world’s smallest wearable, battery-free device to measure light. The technology enables scientists to measure exposure to light across multiple wavelengths. The device is as about as thick in diameter as a credit card and is about the size of an M&M. It is also solar powered. Researchers said the device monitored therapeutic UV light in clinical phototherapy booths for psoriasis and atopic dermatitis as well as blue light phototherapy for newborns with jaundice ...

World's smallest wearable device warns of UV exposure, enables precision phototherapy
(Northwestern University) The world's smallest wearable, battery-free and virtually indestructible device has been developed to measure exposure to light across multiple wavelengths, from the ultra violet to visible and even infrared parts of the solar spectrum. Smaller than an M&M, the device can optimize treatment of neonatal jaundice, skin diseases, seasonal affective disorder and reduce risk of sunburns and skin cancer. It can record up to three separate wavelengths of light at one time. (Source: EurekAlert! - Cancer)

How Common Are Twins?
Discussion Twinning is the conception and development of more than one zygote during one pregnancy. Monozygotic (MZ) twins arise from one zygote that then splits to form two embryos so that the twins are necessarily of the same gender (male-male or female-female). Dizygotic (DZ) twinning arises from the development of two independent zygotes and therefore the genders may be the same or different (male-male, female-female or male-female). Increased risks of spontaneous DZ twinning includes increased maternal age, parity and gravity, family history including familial clustering, maternal obesity and overweight and smoking. ...
