Scare of Needles? Buzzy device makes injections less painful


How many of you out there actually have the fear of needles, and hate going to the doctor to get your shot? If you have answered in the affirmative, then you would be in good company with a number of children too, who happen to share the same fear as you. There is something quite unnerving about having a really large needle inserted into your body, although thinking about it as some form of acupuncture might help a wee bit. Here is one device that has definitely proven itself in trials and tests-buzzy .Just what the heck is the Buzzy, you ask? Well, the Buzzy happens to be a unique and new device which is capable of relieving the stinging pain of shots, and it is currently assisting children and adults around the world by offering them an instant pain management solution.
It was invented by a mom/pediatric ER physician, where it is reusable to boot, blocking pain using
 the natural method by merging a therapeutic massager and an ice pack. Kids as well as parents are indebted to this vibrating bee, where it would go a long way in helping out with needle phobia, injection pain, and burning. Not only that, a fair number of parents also use Buzzy when it comes to scrapes, itching, bee stings, and splinters.Buzzy is effective in its nature because of the physiology called Gate Control. Larger cold and vibration nerves will crowd out smaller pain nerve sensations whenever both are felt simultaneously, and if you want a more natural example, imagine running a burn under cold water, and you’ve got the picture. Buzzy will make use of low tech components in order to address the issue of needle pain and needle phobia in an efficient manner. If you are interested, the palm-sized Buzzy will retail for $39.95 a pop.

Syrian Electronic Army claims credit for CBS Twitter accounts hack

Yesterday, several of CBS ’s Twitter accounts were hacked, including its main account, and its accounts for 60 Minutes, 48 Hours, and CBS Denver.

Can Technology Do a Better Job of Finding Bombs?

 With the horrifying images of the Boston Marathon bombing still much too fresh in our minds, and with citywide marathons coming up this weekend in London, Hamburg, and Salt Lake City , law enforcement officers and citizens everywhere are asking how to prevent the tragedy from being repeated. As Columbia University School of International and Public Affairs adjunct professor Abraham Wagner observed last year, on the 11th anniversary of 9/11, there’s “no magic bullet o
