Diagnostic Skin Scanner Observ Offers Early Detection

A recent study published in Allure magazine reveals that scientists now know that skin cancer is specifically caused by mutated melanocyte skin cells — clinical diagnostic devices like Observ could potentially be the key to early detection and treatment. Learn more at www.observ-diagnostic.com

Penticton, Canada - October 20, 2017 /PressCable/ —

According to a new study in Allure magazine, scientists have pinpointed one of the specific identifiers of skin cancer – an abundance of melanocytes in the skin, activated by dangerous ultraviolet light rays emitted by the sun. The activation of melanocytes by the sun’s UV rays causes the melanin in the skin to mutate, which gives sunbathers the tan they so desire, however, it’s not without potentially harmful effects. Scientists have recently discovered that this mutation is what causes skin cells to be susceptible to the development of a tumour, so the bottom line is that sun-damaged skin is far more susceptible to malignant melanoma than healthy, SPF-treated skin.

Unfortunately, there is no easy way for people to tell whether sun damage is lurking below the surface of the skin, because in most cases, damaged skin looks normal from the outside. Rather, it is the cellular damage that appears underneath the dermis that reveals the damage, but there are few ways in which the everyday sunbather can know whether they are at a greater risk.

Enter the Observ Diagnostic device.

Observ is a revolutionary portable, diagnostic skin scanner that uses trueUV nonharmful ultraviolet rays to see beyond the surface of the skin. This harmless, diluted version of UV rays allows clinicians to peer beneath the dermis and reveal underlying damage. Then, this damage can be visually demonstrated to clients via digital representation in a convenient app. Finally, this imaging can be used to map clients’ progress, tracking the results of clinical treatment from session to session.

Coupled with these new scientific findings about the potential cellular predisposition for skin cancer, the Observ technology could be the first point of detection for serious melanoma. And as everybody knows, when it comes to skin cancers and other dangerous underlying conditions, early detection is key for effective treatment.

Pyeongchang Olympics showcases Korean self-driving vehicles

Feb 17, 2018

PYEONGCHANG, South Korea — There's a competition at the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics that has nothing to do with sports, and plenty to do with jousting between automakers and tech companies over autonomously driving vehicles. South Korea's largest automaker and a local telecom firm haggled for months over who would get to claim the exclusive right to label its vehicle as "autonomous." In the end, Hyundai Motors rolled out an "autonomous" sedan while KT Corp.'s self-driving bus was christened the "5G Bus." The self-driving vehicles on display at the Winter Olympics are showcasing South Korea's prowess in both automotive and telecoms...

China charges former rising political star with bribery

Feb 17, 2018

BEIJING — A former rising star in Chinese politics has been charged with bribery, becoming the highest-level serving official to be prosecuted in President Xi Jinping's sweeping anti-corruption campaign, now in its sixth year. The Supreme People's Procuratorate announced the indictment of Sun Zhengcai, the former Communist Party leader of the western megacity of Chongqing and a member of the party's 25-member Politburo, on its website Tuesday. The announcement said Sun "illegally accepted huge amounts of money and goods" from others in return for providing them with benefits. Also Tuesday, the party's anti-corruption watchdog body announced the country's former top...

Holidaying frog game finds fans among China's harried youth

Feb 17, 2018

BEIJING — Wang Zhuyin studies 10 hours a day preparing for a series of tests to obtain a U.S. physician's license. But like millions of young Chinese adults, the 26-year-old has found a new way to cope with the pressure: an online game about a frog. A frog that's perpetually on vacation. Wang's diversion, the Japanese mobile game "Travel Frog," has attracted a massive following in China by speaking to a desire for a more passive existence among harried young people that some have termed "Buddhist style" for its desired goal of Zen-like serenity. The game has only two scenes,...

Drones grounded at opening ceremony _ but not on tape delay

Feb 17, 2018

PYEONGCHANG, South Korea — An army of high-flying drones expected to light up the sky at the opening ceremony of the Olympics was grounded. Viewers of NBC's tape-delayed broadcast in the United States still saw it, but it was a pre-recorded version. Intel Corp. was expected to launch 300 drones as part of an extravagant light show, but those plans were scrapped. International Olympic Committee spokesman Mark Adams said Saturday that the drones were not deployed Friday night because of an "impromptu logistical change." NBC aired a light show, but it was from Intel's launching of more than 1,200 drones...

Hold that tweet: Athletes tiptoe around Olympic do's, don'ts

Feb 17, 2018

PYEONGCHANG, South Korea — One might expect Mark Tuitert to be happy after helping give birth to one of the feel-good stories of the Pyeongchang Olympics. Far from it. The Dutch speed-skating gold medalist from the 2010 Vancouver Games pulled strings to help secure funding for Akwasi Frimpong, the skeleton athlete from Ghana whose unlikely Olympic journey is writing headlines far beyond Africa and his home in the Netherlands. Tuitert's company, which sells chewing gum, kicked in sponsorship, too. But Frimpong and Tuitert will have to wait until after the games to commercially milk his newfound attention. Their hands are...
