Invent devices to help elderly alzheimers’ patients.

You guessed it……an Asian.

I see a scholarship in this kid’s future.

Better yet…..15 years old!

Muslim kids? They’re out there KILLING people instead of saving them.

Having a family member with Alzheimer’s means constantly worrying about that person walking off and getting lost. A new sensor invented by a 15-year-old New York boy could help prevent that type of scenario by alerting family members or caregivers via their smartphones when the patient starts to wander away.

Kenneth Shinozuka was inspired to create the SafeWanderer when his grandfather wandered onto a freeway in his pajamas late at night and was brought home by police officers. Kenneth knew that this frightening situation could have been avoided with an early warning system. The super-smart teen began by developing a film sensor that’s just .25mm thick and an ultra-low-energy wireless circuit about the size of a quarter. He also developed Android and iOS apps to go along with the device.

The sensor can be embedded in socks or adhered to the patient’s sock, foot, or shoe. It’s meant to be worn at night, when the patient is least likely to be closely supervised. As soon as the patient’s foot hits the floor, a notification is sent via the app to the designated caregiver. The inventor tested the device on his grandfather for six months. During that trial period, the device produced a total of 437 alerts with 100% accuracy – there were no false alarms.

According to Shinozuka, the system could be used to study the correlation between daytime diet/activities and nighttime wandering. Currently, he is working with fellow Boy Scouts to produce hundreds of the units for donation to nursing homes. And then we assume he’ll set off to save some kittens from trees, fix global warming, and whatever else the world’s most awesome kid does with his free time.

In New York. They’ve been told they’re voting records will be reviewed.

Imagine of the Republican Party were to have done this. Republicans would have risen p and told them to go fuck themselves.

But liberals are too stupid to be able to tell when they’ve been menaced or threatened.

Election season is full of surprises. As a registered (but essentially skeptical) Democrat and former campaign worker, I’m used to seeing odd, sometimes aggressive or misleading messaging strategies and get-out-the-vote tactics.

Still, imagine my surprise to open my mailbox on Wednesday night to this bizarre, hostile letter from the New York State Democratic Committee, the very people I’m supposed to be voting for on November 4:

Dear Thomas:

Our records indicate that you are registered in New York County. Who you vote for is your secret. But whether or not you vote is public record. Many organizations monitor turnout in your neighborhood and are disappointed by the inconsistent voting of many of your neighbors. [...]

We will be reviewing the New York County official voting records after the upcoming election to determine whether you joined your neighbors who voted in 2014. If you do note vote this year, we will be interested to hear why not.

In other words, do not disappoint us. “Many organizations” will be monitoring your voting habits, like your nosy neighbors and the mafia.

Guy takes storage room and converts it into a rustic man cave:

Redditor kelhans, in an amazing display of resourcefulness, transformed a storage room in the basement of this home into what looks like a deep-woods cabin retreat. The price is right as well: he says he only spent $107 on the entire project, furnishing it with his belongings and using scrap wood.

This impressive DIY project had an amusing inspiration: the man is a father of seven children and desired a place that was all his own. I can only hope his wife recruits him to build her a woman cave next, so both parents have their happy places!
