Worrying about robots stealing our jobs? How silly | Simon Jenkins
The digital age will free us up not only for leisure activities but also to take on caring roles that can only be filled by humansSo we are doomed. Robots will steal our jobs.

Selfie Medicine Is a Thing, But Should It Be?
At a time when taking and sharing selfie photos and videos have become commonplace, it's no surprise that someone would come up with the idea of "selfie medicine." Selfie medicine requires using a mobile app to record a video of themselves taking prescribed medication for the sake of proving adherence. On one hand, it seems like an innovative solution to a major healthcare problem, as statistics show that up to 50% of U.S. adults do not take their medication as prescribed. But the practice also raises some valid concerns. "I think it can be part of an acute care adherence plan," Shital Mars, CEO of Prog...

Evaluation of occlusal caries detection and assessment by visual inspection, digital bitewing radiography and near-infrared light transillumination
ConclusionThis comparative diagnostic study showed that VI detected the majority of occlusal caries lesions. Both additional methods showed limited benefits. Due to the valuable features of NIR-LT, i.e., X-ray freeness and clinical practicability, this method might be preferred over X-ray-based methods. Nevertheless, BWRs should be prescribed in clinical situations where insufficient fillings or multiple (deep) caries lesions are diagnosed or where there is a need to assess the caries extension in relation to the pulp.Clinical relevanceVI has to be understood as caries detection method of choice on occlusal surfaces in low...

Global extent of rivers and streams
The turbulent surfaces of rivers and streams are natural hotspots of biogeochemical exchange with the atmosphere. At the global scale, the total river-atmosphere flux of trace gasses such as carbon dioxide depends on the proportion of Earth’s surface that is covered by the fluvial network, yet the total surface area of rivers and streams is poorly constrained. We used a global database of planform river hydromorphology and a statistical approach to show that global river and stream surface area at mean annual discharge is 773,000 ± 79,000 square kilometers (0.58 ± 0.06%) of Earth’s nonglaciated la...
