A med-tech startup has developed a novel way to treat burn wounds


. RenovaCare harvests a variety of cells, including stem cells, from a healthy area of skin on a patient. Those cells are then suspended in a water-based solution and sprayed onto the wound using the company’s SkinGun. The sprayer allows us to have a generous distribution of cells, explained RenovaCare’s Roger Esteban-Vives. http://local.qoo.ly/s6k

Apple iPhone 7s, 7s Plus, iPhone 8 rumor round-up: design, specs, features, price, release date


In 2017, we are expecting Apple to announce its next batch of iPhones. If logic is anything to go by, and it usually is, these will most probably be the iPhone 7s and the iPhone 7s Plus. Even if that’s not what Apple ends up calling these, it’s certain that the 4.7″ and 5.5″ iPhones are going to get succeeded by excellent devices.

We should not forget that 2017 marks the 10th anniversary of the iPhone lineup and Apple’s been wildly rumored to have something quite exciting in the pipeline.

What is that exciting handset that we are talking about? Well, that one’s is reportedly going to be a super-premium iPhone employing a host of exciting and intriguing features. Gossip says it’s rolling under the “Ferrari” model name, though we’ve often heard that it would end up being called the iPhone 8. It is reportedly going to shake things up by introducing a new all-glass design, a curved O

Elephant Blocks Traffic So It Can Master Its Soccer Skills



Nothing is worse than a commute into work. Granted, I wouldn’t know what that is like now because I chose the awesome life of a freelance writer. Hell, I rarely have to even have to take off my robe. But I have heard a commute to your soul-sucking job can be exhasuting.

So imagine your shock and awe if you were driving to work and suddenly, you came to a dead stop on the road so a young elephant can practice its soccer skills? I say this because that is just what happened to some drivers in India recently, as captured in the video below.

The Monkey Mafia: They Steal Your Sh*t Then Make You Buy it Back (For Food)



Better grab something or make sure you are sitting down when you read this because this is one of those “no way” type of news stories, but as a celebrated journalist (in my own head, at least), I can tell you, this has been 100% verified. So much so, that I can report it as actual news. To sum it up, read above headline. Monkeys in Indonesia have formed a sort of Mafia and steal people’s stuff, only to make them give them (of all things) a cracker to get their stuff back. Pretty genius, actually.

It is just the kind of thing that needs to be seen to be believed! I will spare you the lengthy written monologue about a story that essentially tells itself via its title.

Weathering the Storm: Long Term PR When Your Brand is Under Attack



When Toyota had to recall 2.9 million vehicles because of faulty airbags, the company faced a pretty big problem. It’s still answering to stockholders and making things right. Volkswagen is dealing with a similar problem thanks to its diesel scandal, which is a major recall with massive financial implications. And yet, both brands endure and will re-grow. Both scandals occurred within a few months of each other.

When you’re faced with a major scandal, there are a lot of temptations. You might consider lashing out, which would be bad, or trying to run from the problem. Do you hire a social media marketing agency to consult for you, or do you attempt to weather the storm alone?

Gadget Ogling: Apple at Home



The battle for your home just got a little more intense as Apple pulled back the curtain on HomePod, its smart speaker that seeks to hold dominion over your home empire and all the gadgets that reside within. HomePod holds a 4-inch woofer and seven tweeters, and it has six microphones to pick up your voice commands for Siri, wherever you happen to be in the room
