Vampire doctors that can smell if you have a blood disease.

Werewolf therapy animals for sick kids.

Nature sprite and nymph nurses that always make sure people have pretty flowers to brighten up their white rooms.

Fauns that go around and sing and dance for patients so that they smile.

Nice monster hospitals would be amazing

Teenager from India invents device that can convert breath to speech

A high school student from India has invented a device that can convert a person’s breath into speech, to give millions of people around the world suffering from speech impediment a ‘voice’ for the first time.

Sixteen-year-old Arsh Shah Dilbagi has developed a new technology called ‘TALK’, which is a cheap and portable device to help people who are physically incapable of speaking express themselves. Right now, 1.4 percent of the world’s population has very limited or no speech, due to conditions such as Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), locked-in syndrome (LIS), Encephalopathy (SEM), Parkinson’s disease, and paralysis.

His name is Arsh Shah Dilbagi and he’s 16 years old. Gettin tired of sensationalized “mystery baby from a country where people are brown does a science thing!” articles. Use peoples names, don’t act so surprised when people of color are geniuses.

This is Khione and she is currently battling skin cancer. :( I feed her high-protein slurry each day because she’s rapidly regrowing her skin. (She’s really calm about it though, she’ll even curl up in my hand :3)

But I have been freaking out all day because I thought for SURE I’d have to put her to sleep soon. She just keeps getting tumors and I didn’t want to keep putting her through risky surgeries.

But my vet is awesome and was like ‘But wait, we have SCIENCE! :D’

So we’re going to try Cryotherapy because it’s fast and doesn’t require anesthesia. It’s sort of like freezing off a wart but for masses and tumors like she gets. But he’s never done it on a reptile, so it’s a bit experimental.

It’s really hard to tell when quality of life is declining, especially for a gecko! She has always recovered well from the surgeries, but then a new tumor pops up a few months later and she declines. We’re hoping if we can zap them early and often and keep her weight up she can overcome it.

silent hills looks great but it

doesn’t feel like a silent hill game to me

the series is hugely character-driven and having the game in first-person is just so horribly jarring to me

Are you ready to shake your silk-maker? Meet ‘Sparklemuffin’ the peacock spider (yes, that’s what scientists call him), one of the lords of arachnid dance.

Peacock spiders are already known for their elaborate mating dances, but recent research shows that they also ‘sing’.

Gengar tries to be scary but keeps ending up looking goofy instead.
