Survey: E-Cigs Surpass Regular Cigs In Teen Use
BY Lauran Neergaard, AP
WASHINGTON (AP) -- Electronic cigarettes have surpassed traditional smoking in popularity among teens, the government's annual drug use survey finds. Even as tobacco smoking by teens dropped to new lows, use of e-cigarettes reached levels that surprised researchers. The findings marked the survey's first attempt to measure the use of e-cigarettes by people that young.
Torn knee joint? Don’t worry, this 3D-printed implant will help you grow a new one
By Drew Prindle, FOX News
3D-printed prosthetic body parts certainly aren’t anything new at this point, but a team of medical researchers at Columbia University Medical Center has just taken the idea to a whole new level. Instead of replacing a damaged body part with an artificial insert, they’ve cooked up a way to use 3D printing in conjunction with stem cells to encourage your body to regrow the damaged part on its own.
10 Things Your Kids Will Live Without
By Steve Tobak, FOXNews
Fifty years ago photos were black and white, music players were mono, phones were rotary, TVs had maybe five stations, milk came to your door, and if you wanted to send someone a message, you had to put a stamp on it and drop it in the mailbox. If you could somehow go back to 1964 and show someone a video of a day in the life of a modern teenager, the guy would probably become catatonic and you’d have to literally dial the operator for help because 911 didn’t even exist yet.
We need more babies! Seriously, this is a problem
By Jake Novak, CNBC
We just learned that the U.S. birthrate fell for the sixth straight year in 2013 to an all-time low. Pardon me for sounding a bit alarmist, but this is really bad news for our economy, our society, and all of civilization. Let's start with the economy. I know a lot of us have been brainwashed into thinking that our natural and manufactured resources are shrinking. We're often told that we have a choice of either radically reducing our consumption or our population or we'll eventually run out of water, energy, and food. Excuse me, but this is hogwash. That's because we heard the same thing in 1714, or 1814, and probably the year 10,000 B.C. And they were wrong then too.

By Stacey Plaisance, AP
NEW ORLEANS (AP) -- Google is one of the major U.S. corporations researching the power of color in the working world, in everything from workspaces to marketing and branding. Meghan Casserly, spokeswoman for the U.S.-based organization built around the popular search engine, says Google is still early in its research but has already found "a clear link between color and satisfaction with a person's work area," which in turn can boost employee creativity and productivity.
The flying fungus: NASA's biodegradable drone that flies and dies
By Peter Shadbolt for CNN
(CNN) -- A bio-drone that dissolves after use leaving no trace it ever existed may sound like the stuff of a James Bond film, but NASA and a team of researchers are actually building one. Made from a substance that combines mushroom fibers and cloned paper wasp spit, the drone might resemble a propeller-powered egg carton, but its designers say it has the ability to fly into environmentally sensitive areas and leave almost no trace.
