Four months ago healthcare looked drastically different from what it does today, and what it will years from now. The physical limitations of healthcare that we once knew of are slowly beginning to erode. COVID-19 has essentially forced digital health innovation across the globe, erasing the notions that physical space, time, and in-immediate access to health care are an inevitable reality.

Digital Health Startups & Innovation

The adamant presence of COVID-19 has increased the urgency for technology that can connect patients to physicians without physical consultation.

Innovators are merging the worlds of digital-tech and healthcare to make it more accessible, breaking down the boundaries of…


Introducing the “Instagram of Activism”

Whether it may be healthcare, voting rights, racial injustice, women’s rights or climate change, most of us can easily say there are social issues that stir up our passion. And unless one is living in a somewhat larger or more socially aware city, it’s not a rarity to say that many of us may also struggle to find a community of people who think alike. With the shortcomings of social media, it’s about time we take up a platform just for activists.

Exploring the duality between uselessly risky experimentation and potential for human breakthrough

At one point or another, we’ve all wanted to change something about ourselves. Whether it’s a quick dip of hair bleach or even a visit to the to plastic surgeon, our journeys as humans — and the modern meaning of human — has led our society towards a culture of “change on command”. Just like many of us fantasize about the ideas of chains of changes that’ll bring us to our ideal selves, others literally do it — superpowers included. These people are called transhumanist biohackers.

Now most of us would be lying if we said we never wished we…


Saying goodbye to old-school data

Nearly 40% of college students report taking notes electronically. What if this statistic began to make its way into science?

Those who extensively work in research know how much of a struggle it can be store data collected. Whether it’s organization, maintenance, or simply finding a more efficient way to record data, applications that allow for researchers to effectively record, store, and share data are very much needed in today’s day and age.

First introduced in 1997, the standard Electronic Lab Notebook (ELN) attempted to help scientists digitize their research data, but was ultimately not picked up too heavily by…

Push together or Push out.

2013. A monumental year — forever marked in the history of science — when CRISPR-Cas 9 technology was officially used in human genome editing. Professor Jennifer Doudna’s life as a UC Berkeley molecular biology professor would flip upside down as she’s marked one of the most revolutionary scientists of the century for taking the first taps into the potential CRISPR Cas-9 holds for humankind. Podcasts. TV interviews. Even a book. And this year, along with Emmanuelle Charpentier, the 2020 Nobel Prize in chemistry. Her discoveries, inevitably invaluable — she’s a big deal woman and will be for a long time.


Less stress and more calm?

These days it seems like trying to mitigate stress and keep a good mood all while getting decent sleep is the next biggest task. Whether it’s an overload of school, sports, work, extracurriculars, or home responsibilities, we’ve all — at some point — felt the difficulties of trying to balance life, rest, and happiness.

We all know that the key to improved mood and energy is sleep. So why don’t we get enough of it?

While the average teenager is supposed to get 9 hours minimum of sleep every night, they often end up getting 7–7.5 hours. For adults, it’s…

For the eaters and the feeders, the restaurant industry just got a lot more efficient.

If you’re like me or many others I know, restaurants are the go-to delight. They breed relationships, connect family & friends, create tradition, and much more.

But the game’s been changed, and it’s only get better with the help of minds, coders, and this beautiful thing we call technology. Here are 4 innovative technologies transforming the restaurant industry.

1. Wearables

Upon first glance, it may be hard to even think as to why wearables would…
