A day at the beach is something many people look forward to about summer. It’s a great way to spend time together as a family for a few hours or several days. But, like many things, there can be a “down” side to spending time at the beach if you end up with a sunburn, jellyfish sting, water-born illness, or some other not-so-fun souvenir of your time.

What are the implications of voice command technology for healthcare? Voice command assistants have the potential to revolutionize patient care – both at home and in inpatient settings – by increasing efficiency and allowing for easier access to medical information.
It’s February, and hearts are everywhere urging you to spread the love! But we’re not talking only about the feelings of love between families, friends, and the special “someone” we celebrate on Valentine’s Day.

Along with resolutions for the New Year come predictions on trends for everything from fashion to home furnishings to relationships to food and diet.
