Stop hushing the little voice in your head that says, “what if?” — and instead embrace that curiosity

I know, I know. The title kind of trips you up. It’s almost counterintuitive — how would something get more complicated the more simply you think about it? At first glance, it sounds absurd. But let’s think about a basic scenario.

You are in math class and are learning about the area of a circle. For some of you, you know it like the back of your hand — πr². It’s an overall simple formula, just squaring the radius and multiplying the result by π. So, a two-step problem:


“Only six electronic digital computers would be required to satisfy the computing needs of the entire United States.”

…said by a man in 1947. To be fair, with the programs that they were running they probably only did need 6 computers. They just hadn’t understood the vast potential of the computers, like the one I’m typing on. No one could have seen this kind of growth with computers back then.

Classical Computers

You’ve heard of Apple, the company. Well, they produce laptops, such as Macbooks (crazy, I know, you totally did not know that and I just dropped a massive knowledge bomb).

This is one example of a classical computer. Classical computers carry out logical operations using information stored in…


STEM CELL EXHAUSTION

Introducing HSCs, the stem cells that could allude to the prevention of stem cell exhaustion

The ability to grow is one of the fundamental characteristics of life. You may have heard of this as ‘evolution’. The secret to evolution is our cells. The trillions of microscopic spheres make up a single human body, each with its own structure and capability.

One of the most important types of cells is our blood cells. A healthy adult’s body can create these blood cells at a rate of about 2.4 million a second.

The main job of these miraculous cells is to carry oxygen from the lungs to the body tissues and carbon dioxide as a waste product…


Introducing biomarkers — the champion of our rapid growth with healthcare

As you go to your first physical appointment since quarantine, something hits you. No, it’s not the fact that it’s been a while since you’ve gotten checked, but you realize that every time you go for a physical, they check up on how you are. And doctors and nurse practitioners do so using biomarkers. When you are taking your eye test, they measure how well your left and right eye can read a set of letters of different sizes. You’ve also noticed that at times you have to take a blood test and they check for your blood pressure, etc…


It’s ok, I’m scared too…

It’s no coincidence that Netflix’s horror series’ are being a huge hit during the quarantine season. With a whopping total of 52 million views on just one of Netflix’s originals, it’s an understatement to say Netflix subscribers love horror🧟.

Whether you’re watching classic horror flicks like Nightmare on Elm Street or Carrie or Netflix’s new supernatural series, The Haunting of Bly Manor, your body has distinctive physiological reactions to the sights 👀 and sounds👂of these scary screen stories.

While many people enjoy having their hearts race 👣 or clutching the seat in suspense, they find themselves scared long after the…


Seriously…why?

I know I know. It sounds lame, but I can’t help but think of this question these past few days. If you really reflect on this question, why really does our brain need sleep to function in the first place? Many people say it’s because the body needs rest. But, doesn’t our body still function while we are asleep? Doesn’t our heart still pump blood, inhaling oxygen and exhaling carbon dioxide? Don’t we still think thoughts while we are asleep?

Hmm…

Well, let’s break this into digestible pieces 🍴.

What’s Sleeping?

Sleeping is essential for good health💊. We need sleep to survive…


INTRODUCTION

Diving deeper into what currently is driving our economy…

What was it like to live without today’s technologies that we take for granted? For one, we would have actual encyclopedias that contained thousands of neverending pages, instead of our dear friend, Wikipedia. And Google.

It’s hard to imagine a life without the internet at the brink of our fingertips. Is it going on a road trip without Google Maps? Or getting gifts in a pinch from Amazon? Both situations sound like it’d burst into chaos (been there, done that).

What drives the Earth’s economy, from 50 years ago till 2021, to be technologically advanced?

When the Internet first started, only things on the server, such as social media applications, could only interact with each other.

But now, the beginning of a new era arises. It’s the apocalypse,

The Internet of Things.


A heart-wrenching disease that has malnourished the lives of millions. But not anymore.

A disease that prevents people from gaining weight.

A disease that 30 million people suffer from every single minute of their lives.

A disease with unclear symptoms.

The culprit? Anorexia nervosa.

Anorexia nervosa

Anorexia nervosa, anorexia for short, is an eating disorder that leads to starvation. People suffering from this eating disorder consume very restrictive quantities of food. As a result, they become malnourished, yet still, perceive themselves as overweight. They have an average BMI of below 17.5, as opposed to a healthy BMI of 18.5–25. Frequently, patients become so malnourished that they are often hospitalized.

9/10 people with anorexia are female…


Through the eyes of Product Hunt’s founder and former CEO, Ryan Hoover

Ryan Hoover!!

What’s your number one goal in life? To find true love…to never worry?

For many, it’s actually none of those, surprisingly.

It’s to become a founder or a CEO of a successful company. But these are just words. What does it really take to reach this goal?

History

Little did I know that joining a discord server would lead to attending a fireside chat with Ryan Hoover.

Ryan Hoover is the founder and former CEO of ProductHunt, a community-based platform to launch and discover new products. Since its birth, the startup has been funded by tiger corporations such as Y Combinator.


Companies racing to develop an effective vaccine, will it make or break our economy?

16.5 million who once had COVID.

300,000 dead.

And that’s just in the United States.

Pfizer, one of the leading COVID vaccine companies, was recently authorized to release their vaccines for distribution. They are facing some withdrawals with distribution, but are striving to get it out to the public.

The Problem: finding the perfect balance between safety and speed

Operation Warp Speed

Because of the pandemic's urgency, the White House has launched Operation Warp Speed, which provides funding to speed up the distribution process.

Companies such as Pfizer and Moderna are working on a vaccine that they hope to be distributed to the…
