I want to start a news show that is called ‘The News + 6 months’. On the show we look at issues that made the news 6 months ago and see what happened to them. Has everyone forgotten them? Did they get resolved?

It would be a way of helping us stop getting so easily distracted and moving from fad to fad, crisis to crisis.



Portuguese designer Susana Soares has developed a device for detecting cancer and other serious diseases using trained bees. The bees are placed in a glass chamber into which the patient exhales; the bees fly into a smaller secondary chamber if they detect cancer. 

Scientists have found that honey bees - Apis mellifera - have an extraordinary sense of smell that is more acute than that of a sniffer dog and can detect airborne molecules in the parts-per-trillion range. 

Bees can be trained to detect specific chemical odours, including the biomarkers associated with diseases such as tuberculosis, lung, skin and pancreatic cancer.
