Girl can die if combing her hair


The Scottish Megan Stewart, 13, could die if combing her hair. She suffers from a rare disease called Hair Brushing Syndrome. That is, if she brushed her auburn tresses a little stronger, it will collapse and may die.
The girl needs to avoid any static capillary in the region, especially combing hair. She may have dizziness, fainting and even seizures.
Megan, who was born premature, 12 weeks ahead of schedule, has vision problems, asthma and lung deficiency, but none of that stops her from having a normal life. What hinders it is not being able to brush your hair.

If Megan rub a balloon on the head, for example, she may die. The problem was discovered by the mother of Megan. Sharon Stewart, 41, was packing her daughter for the first day of class when something terrible happened.
- I was combing her hair in the room when she fell and her lips turned blue. I called the paramedics. We had never heard of this disease.
Doctors Hospital Yorkhill Glasgow, UK, said that Sharon had only heard of such a syndrome once in a lifetime.
His father Ian explains better what the girl has.
"When she combs, creates so much static electricity that your brain can not handle. He pretty much 'off' and the heart stops beating and the lungs do not work anymore. Every time she combs do not know how it will end. "
Megan had to spend a year of his life in hospital in Yorkhill Hospital until he was diagnosed by physical rather than by physicians.
Now she gives lectures to raise funds for the hospital that treated her.

Bing Apps for Windows 8 get major updates

Late least year, Microsoft rolled out a half dozen Bing Apps for Windows 8 users, each one focused on a specific category, such as travel and sports. The apps were designed to offer “immersive vertical experiences,” and now, about six months later, a big line of updates for them is being pushed out. Users can grab the updates now by heading into the Windows Store and selecting the updates notification.
Flexible displays are the Future of IT Industry! A part from 4k and smart home appliances, the CES 2013 saw a lot of attention being drawn towards bendable, flexible displays. The elasticised display idea isn’t something new as we have seen hoards of device concepts being crafted around flexible, bendable and even foldable displays. These concept devices give us a futuristic feel, be it a flexible phone to be worn around the wrist or a phone that opens up to turn into a tablet or PSP-like device. But how far is this future? Nokia has been toying with the idea ever since we remember. The technology sounds very fascinating and the possibilities and the extent to which bendable displays could be used are vast and leave us spellbound. However, these have always been concepts and we haven’t seen any device materialise in the real world. There have been several technologies that were conceived in these years and all have been put to their practical use. But the bendable d
