The next big thing in the energy sector: Photovoltaic generated DC electricity
"The Next Big Thing in the Energy Sector: Photovoltaic Generated DC Electricity...A viable solution is the onsite generation of electricity using the photovoltaic (PV) method of converting solar energy directly into electrical energy. The PV method uses semiconductor devices called solar cells. With constant reduction of the cost, this method is the most promising direct current (DC) power source for rich and poor globally..."

The UCLA Department of Neurosurgery analyzes brain wave data to predict the rise of deadly brain pressure as part of a National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke study. Knowing in advance that brain pressure could potentially rise in TBI patients gives doctors more time to prevent further brain damage or death. The Centers for Disease Control estimates 1.7 million people in the United States sustain TBIs every year.
