Hah! I remember when they noticed that after widening opening of the ozone layer over the Antarctic, there were increased skin cancer rates in Chile, except for Santiago, Chile, which had lower
It turned out that the air pollution, including low-level ozone, filtered the UVA/UVB rays.

I've heard that there's a Chinese version of Twitter, that also allows 144 characters. But since characters in Chinese (kanji) are full words, you can really express yourself.
Makes it a lot more useful than Twitter, in my mind. I guess there are too many people on the internet with short attention spans.
What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Are the design challenges the same as with embedded systems, but with a little developer- and IT-skills added in? What do engineers need to know? Rick Merritt talks with two experts about the tools and best options for designing IoT devices in 2016. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
