Everyone these days has heard or seen the ALS Ice bucket challenge. The best bucket challenge actually occurred in 1755 when Benjamin Franklin electrified a metal pail and lowered a cork ball inside. Famous for his observations, Franklin was able to observe that the cork ball was NOT electrified or in any way touched by the electrical current which remained observable outside the pail. Nearly 90 years later, in 1843, electrochemist Michael Faraday used a pewter ice bucket to confirm Franklin's theory and essentially created what is now known as the hollow conductor or a Faraday cage. Using the principles of the Faraday cage, an American company, POD (Privacy on Demand) has created what amounts to a Faraday cage for one's cell phone and has launched an Indiegogo campaign to bring about awareness of the product as they bring it to market.

Prospective tenants also need to be vetted to ensure that they have sufficiently-stable incomes, will be good neighbors, and basically be good customers.

Until very recently development was considered something that moved strictly in one direction. While some had considered theories that other possibilities existed, evidence was few and far between. Until Igor Adameyko, a Stockholm, Sweden based developmental biologist working out of the Karolinska Institute, made a breakthrough that has shook these ideas to the bones. Adameyko has discovered that nervous system cells rather than remaining the same or dieing, transform back into stem cells making development something that now obviously moves in both directions. The unlikely places that this occurs, according to the researcher, is inside teeth. This may open up the door to stem cell exploration without the controversial nature of having to work with embryos, a method that has caused protests within some religious circles.
