“Smartpen” could monitor patients’ anesthetic levels during surgery | New Atlas

Everyone responds to general anesthetics differently, which can make administering the correct dose tricky. A new device is designed to help, by continuously monitoring anesthetic levels in patients’ bloodstreams during surgical procedures.

Ordinarily, anesthesiologists base initial dosages on factors such as age, weight and gender.

One thing that they don’t know ahead of time, however, is how much of the drug will end up actually circulating within an individual patient’s bloodstream. For this reason, they may end up administering supplemental doses of the anesthetic during the operation, in order to keep the patient asleep and unaware. For safety reasons, though, they should still be using as little of the drug as possible.

Stocks week ahead: Wall Street dealmakers have never been busier | CNN

There’s never been a better time for companies to raise funding from hot markets or make moves to scoop up their competitors.


That’s been a huge boon to investment bankers, who are gearing up for another summer of juggling dealmaking with vacations.

Cod Liver Oil vs Fish Oil: Which Is Better? | Life Hack

Omega-3 fatty acids have so many benefits, such as a reduced risk of cardiovascular disease, type 1 diabetes, certain types of cancer, glaucoma, and stroke. This nutrient is essential for the body’s function, but our bodies are unable to produce them on their own. Therefore, it’s important that we get enough Omega-3 fatty acids from outside sources.

If you’re looking for a way to get your Omega-3 fatty acids in, there are so many ways to do so. If introducing Omega-3s into your diet by eating two to three servings of fish per week doesn’t seem feasible, supplements such as cod liver oil and fish oil are here to help.

Many people use these supplements to boost their health and prevent chronic diseases. In fact, research from the National Institutes of Health showed that, in 2012, 7.8% of adults in the United States and 1.1% of children had taken a fish oil supplement in the previous 30 days.

Say Goodbye To Bitcoin And Say Hello To The Digital Dollar | Forbes

Yesterday we talked about the prospects of a digital dollar coming down the pike.

It seems clear that global governments will not allow non-sovereign forms of money to continue to proliferate.

The Senate Banking committee’s hearing on the digital dollar two weeks ago was not only a public exploration and introduction to the concept a central bank-backed digital currency, the hearing was also used as a platform to publicly assassinate the viability of the private (“bogus” in the words of Senator Warren) cryptocurrency market (bitcoin, stablecoins, etc.).

When should you incorporate a business? The short answer is to do it prior to starting or launching the company. The sooner your business incorporates as an entity formation, the sooner it receives limited liability protection that ensures the safety of your personal and professional assets.
