Distraction On Street And Sidewalk Helps Cause Record Pedestrian Deaths

first_img Share Bebeto Matthews/APDrivers being distracted by their devices is a well-documented, rising cause of traffic crashes, but there is a growing number of pedestrians, too, who can become oblivious to traffic around them.It’s the oldest and most basic form of transportation — walking — and more people are doing more of it to get fit or stay healthy. But there’s new evidence today that even walking across the street is getting more dangerous.A report released by the Governors Highway Safety Association shows that the number of pedestrians killed in traffic jumped 11 percent last year, to nearly 6,000. That’s the biggest single-year increase in pedestrian fatalities ever, and the highest number in more than two decades.“It is alarming,” says GHSA executive director Jonathan Adkins, “and it’s counterintuitive.”“There’s been an assumption that, because of increased safety of vehicles as we move toward semi-autonomous vehicles, that traffic deaths were going to go down,” Adkins says. “We’re seeing just the opposite, unfortunately, with a particular spike as it relates to pedestrians and cyclists.”Last month the National Safety Council reported that traffic deaths overall went up 6 percent nationwide in 2016.Maureen Vogel, spokeswoman for the council, says it stands to reason that pedestrian fatalities would rise as part of that trend, but she and other safety experts did not expect the rise in pedestrian deaths to so significantly outpace other traffic-related fatalities.“A perfect storm” of factors spurred the increase, Vogel says: A stronger economy and low gas prices have put more cars on the road and have people driving more often, “but that is really only part of the story … so something else is at play here.”One possibility can be seen during rush hour in downtown Chicago just by looking at both the drivers of the dozens of vehicles inching through traffic and the scores of pedestrians crossing the busy intersections. One thing many have in common is that their eyes are down, staring at their phones.“We are crazy distracted,” says Melody Geraci, deputy executive director of the Active Transportation Alliance, a Chicago group advocating for better walking, cycling and public transportation options. “After speeding and the failure to yield, distractions are the number three cause [of pedestrian fatalities], particularly by electronic devices.”Drivers being distracted by their devices is a well-documented, rising cause of traffic crashes, but there is a growing number of pedestrians, too, who can become oblivious to traffic around them.“We have noticed over the years increases in the number of injuries related to distracted walking — pedestrians being distracted by cell phones and then injuring themselves because of that distraction,” says Vogel, referring to National Safety Council data. “So it’s entirely possible that is at play, not just on our roadways but on our sidewalks.”But a bigger problem remains vehicle speeds.“Speed is a killer for sure,” says Geraci. “If a pedestrian is struck at 20 miles an hour, they have a 10 percent chance of dying. If they are struck at 40 miles an hour, they have an 80 percent chance of dying.”New York City lowered its speed limit on most streets to 25 mph a couple of years ago to help protect pedestrians; other cities are considering slowing speeds, too.And researchers are looking through the data to see if they can come up with other ways to make streets safer for those crossing on foot. According to the GHSA report, 74 percent of pedestrian fatalities happen at night, and 72 percent of those killed were not crossing at intersections.Another significant factor is alcohol.The GHSA report indicated that 15 percent of pedestrians killed each year are hit by a drunk driver, while 34 percent of pedestrians killed are legally drunk themselves. That’s right: one-third of pedestrians killed in traffic had blood-alcohol (BAC) levels above the .08 threshold for drunk driving.“We’ve done a good job in highway safety in telling people that when you go out to the bar and you’re drunk, don’t get behind the wheel,” says Adkins. “But you should really be careful about walking, particularly if you’re walking at night, and you’re walking a distance. You’re not gonna have good judgment, a car’s not gonna see you … [so] don’t walk home at night when you’re hammered.”He and other safety advocates say lower speed limits, better road designs, and more sidewalks can help reduce the fatalities.So can new vehicle technologies that alert drivers to the presence of pedestrians — but many drivers don’t understand it, don’t know how to use it and thus disable the technology.“It’s not as if there aren’t solutions out there,” says Adkins. “We know what needs to be done, it’s just having the will to do it.”Copyright 2017 NPR.

Indian TrIcolour through the minds eye

first_imgThe Indian Tricolour is one of the most beautiful flags in the world. Each colour including that of Ashoka Chakra holds meaning and significance. But there are many people (Visually impaired) who aren’t fortunate enough to witness and appreciate this pretty sight. They are deprived of the joy of fluttering colours.To give such visually challenged children an idea of the national flag, MP Birla Cement has crafted a “Flag Without Colours”. Made of cement, this flag brings out the colours and symbol of the flag through braille markings. Also Read – Add new books to your shelfThis Republic Day, the braille flag, cast in concrete, was carried to several blind schools across the country, allowing its students to partake in the celebrations of the 70th Anniversary of our Republic. Seva Mandir School, Indore, is one of the institutions that received the “Flag with(out) Colours”. The other schools included Government Blind School, Kadam Kuan, Patna, Burdwan Blind Academy, Burdwan, St. Michael Blind School, Ranchi, All India Confederation of the Blind, Delhi, Institution of Blind, Delhi, and Raj Andhay Vidhyalaya, Allahabad. Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsiveSandip Ranjan Ghose, Executive President, M P Birla Cement, said, “On this 70th Republic Day, the values embedded in our flag are relevant more than before. This is a small endeavour on our part to make the celebrations of Republic Day more inclusive and carry the message of national flag to a wider cross-section of our young citizens”. “Cement is usually seen as a very inanimate material and its role in nation building is not easily recognised. The philosophy of the MP Birla Group is ‘Heart and Strength’. This is an expression of that core value, which guides our organisation. In the course of the year, we plan to take braille flag to many more institutions like Seva Mandir as our homage to the nation,” he further added. “Republic Day emphasises human rights and honours the freedom that national flag represents. This was just a humble attempt of including those who have been deprived of sight in a celebration that is rightfully theirs. I can only hope that the ‘Readable Flag’ will become as common a sight as the tricolour someday”, said Sujoy Roy, Executive Creative Director, Ogilvy Kolkata.last_img read more

3D Printing as a Replacement for Cooking Its Coming

first_img 3-D printing has made waves in industries from fashion to space to biotech. It’s also poised to radically transform the way we think about and prepare food.Image credit: Modernist Cuisine | Vimeo That was the takeaway from a talk on the future of 3-D printing given Wednesday at the Tribeca Film Festival by 3D Systems’ chief entrepreneur officer Ping Fu, who announced that the company will be launching a consumer chocolate 3-D printer this year.3-D printing technology is already being used by high-end chefs — she shared a video of an elaborate 50 course meal prepared by the Modernist Cuisine’s Nathan Myhrvold that integrated 3-D printed elements — but has yet to go mainstream.Video credit: Modernist Cuisine | VimeoFu predicts that will soon change. “I believe the food printer will be the first one that is going to be adopted in everybody’s home,” she told the audience, painting a picture of a near-future where cooking a meal is redefined as designing it on a computer and then printing it out in the kitchen. “3-D printing will allow delicious nutritious food with great presentation to be delivered locally.”Related: How a 3-D Printer Just Gave This Little Girl an Awesome, New Prosthetic HandIt will also allow individuals to ‘cook’ for friends and family members remotely. When her daughter was growing up, Fu often had to work late at the office. She wanted to somehow still cook her dinner, a futile fantasy. At least, it was back then. “With a 3-D printer, this is totally possible,” she said.We’re still a long ways from 3-D printing entire meals, and Fu understands that for many people, 3-D printing dinner may feel like cheating, replacing a messy, joyful social process with a cold and clinical one.She urged the audience to keep an open mind. Replacing cooking with 3-D printing doesn’t necessarily make the process less social. Just instead of collaborating in the kitchen, families will “co-create” around the computer. Related: This Drivable Car Was 3-D Printed in 44 Hours 2 min read Free Webinar | Sept. 9: The Entrepreneur’s Playbook for Going Global April 23, 2015 Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own.

Supercharging the BandAid Five futuristic bandages that could take wound healing to

first_imgToday’s bandages are pretty good at covering up wounds, sealing them off from infectious bacteria and allowing the body to go to work patching up the damage. But could there come a time when bandages play more of an active role in accelerating healing and fighting infection, so we can peel them off and get on with our lives sooner? A number of research groups around the world have already produced promising experimental versions of futuristic bandages that could take our healing game to the next level. Here’s a look at some of the more interesting examples. How to improve today’s typical wound dressing is a problem researchers are coming at from all kinds of angles. This includes everything from using body heat to hurry things along, to hydrogels that deliver medicine to the site, to bandages that take their cues from the healing properties of scabs. Amid all this exciting progress, there are two mechanisms in particular that are providing promising paths forward. One centers on the notion that electrical currents can be harnessed to speed up healing by killing off bacteria and promoting blood flow to the site. This has long been explored as a way of accelerating wound healing, but one 2015 study started to give the idea real substance. staff reporter, 360Dx, 2018 The other revolves around fluctuating pH levels in fluids at the site of a wound. By sneaking sensors into wound dressings that can monitor these biomarkers, scientists are coming up with inventive ways to not only track the progress being made behind the curtain, but even deliver medication automatically as it is required. Here are five experimental prototypes that you won’t be seeing in the clinic any time soon, but do leverage these technologies to demonstrate what wound dressing could look like further down the track. Electrifying the Band-Aid A wound treated via electrical stimulation (right) versus one left to heal normally (left), after 10 days healing time, as part of a 2015 study at the  University of Manchester  University of Manchester  We recommend A prototype of the bandage developed by researchers from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, Harvard Medical School and MITUniversity of Nebraska-Lincoln The prototype smart bandage developed at Tufts UniversityNanoLab – Sameer Sonkusale, Tufts University Back in 2015, scientists at Washington State University published a paper detailing what they described as an electronic Band-Aid. The device consisted of a conductive carbon fabric that could be fed with an electrical current, which generated hydrogen peroxide that served to kill antibiotic-resistant bacteria. The team tested out the tech on pig tissue against the multi-drug resistant bacteria Acinetobacter baumannii, where it reduced the population to 1/10,000th of its size within 24 hours. Powered by the human body Blood Assay Can Predict Latent TB That May Become Active in Children, Study Finds Back in 2017, we looked at a smart bandage that also used gels to contain tiny doses of different medicines, with a built in micro-controller sending a voltage through certain fibers to selectively release the drugs inside. These could be triggered automatically by fluctuating pH levels or even glucose, or alternatively, has the capacity to be triggered wirelessly by a smartphone.”This is the first bandage that is capable of dose-dependent drug release,” University of Nebraska-Lincoln assistant professor and team member Ali Tamayol said at the time.

With a band wrapped around the patient’s torso embedded with nanogenerators to harvest energy from the movement of the ribcage during breathing, the system could provide power to an electric bandage. During experiments, this healed skin-thick wounds in lab rats within three days, compared to the 12 days it took a control group.

Last year, a team at Tufts University demonstrated how such a thing could be possible through a smart bandage with a built-in sensor to measure pH values of the wound. A built-in microprocessor uses these readings to determine if an infection of inflammation is present, with higher levels again indicating that all is not well. If that’s the case, it heats up antibiotic gels that release drugs in response to the threat.

Back in 2017, scientists in Switzerland demonstrated a bandage that glows when the wound becomes chronic. This is based on the idea that pH levels of the wound’s fluids spike at eight and then settle on five or six if it is healing healthily, while a steady seven or eight indicates a chronic situation. The bandage has custom-made molecules within it that light up only when pH is at 7.5, while anything else means the dressing can be left in place.
