New ‘farm-to-table’ medical marijuana app connects farm to ta-bowl. A software company recently launched a medicinal marijuana delivery smartphone app a few weeks ago in an effort to bring the pot farmers closer to dispensaries and dispensaries closer to patients.

New ‘farm-to-table’ medical marijuana app connects farm to ta-bowl

Joshua Artman, founder and CEO of the Green Exchange, called its free app, Loud Cannabis, a distribution model to streamline the distribution of cannabis from farm to table. “It’s really learning how it was grown and where it was grown and the quality,” Artman said, calling the current statewide distribution system inefficient and sometimes dangerous. New app puts everyone on the map. Although it’s home to some 70,000 people, there are relatively few official street names and addresses in Rocinha, Rio, the largest Favela in Brazil – a real problem for its inhabitants.

New app puts everyone on the map

UK tech start-up What3Words has the answer: an app that fits inside a smartphone and is much more precise than a GPS. The idea is to give every single spot on the globe a unique and easy address to remember – words that translate to a specific set of coordinates. “With GPS coordinates it’s actually pretty common to mix up two of the numbers and the worst thing that could happen is maybe you’ve ordered pizza or something and the guy actually goes to the wrong place in your town, so you were close enough that you didn’t know that you were wrong,” explains What3Words CEO Chris Sheldrick.

“So our office is here at Index, Home, Raft (London) but if I typed in Index, Home, Rafts you’ll see it takes me to Western Australia where it’s pretty unlikely my pizza guy is going to go and try to deliver my pizza.” New app creates a searchable network of species worldwide.

Click on a species name to reveal its range map (one shown below), as well as crowdsourced pictures. A team led by Walter Jetz of Yale University and Robert Guralnick of the Florida Museum of Natural History spent two years creating the Map of Life app, which is free for iPhones and Android. Everybody Deserves Access to Mobile Banking. Mobile banking might be an integral part of your day to day life, but there are a lot of people in the US that the Miami based Waleteros would classify as ‘underbanked’.

Everybody Deserves Access to Mobile Banking

These are people who don’t use or have a bank account and could benefit from using their smartphone as a banking solution. According to Waleteros, Hispanics represent a disproportionate percentage of this group of underbanked US citizens. Traditionally, in order to meet their financial needs underbanked individuals will go to check cashing stores where they have to pay hefty fees to manage their finances.

Feeding Forward, in California l'app contro lo spreco di cibo. Collegare, in tempo reale, chi può offrire cibo e chi ne ha bisogno: questo l’obiettivo di “Feeding forward”, un’app sviluppata da un gruppo di studenti dell’università di Berkeley in California, che, da febbraio del 2012 oggi, è riuscita a sfamare più di 600mila homeless della città di San Francisco.

Feeding Forward, in California l'app contro lo spreco di cibo

Il sistema, ideato dalla studendessa Komal Ahmad, consente mettere in contatto i ristoranti, i supermercati e le mense universitarie - luoghi in cui è possibile recuperare cibo in eccedenza - e le onlus e le associazioni no profit che si occupano di recuperarlo e distribuirlo a chi vive in situazioni di povertà. The innovators: the app that allows patients to track their illnesses. David Bedford suffers from Parkinson’s disease and can sometimes forget to take one of the five different pills he needs to keep the condition in check.

Worse, when he makes half yearly visits to the hospital for a check-up, he cannot remember the details of his daily routine. Three years after he was diagnosed with the disease, he now uses a mobile phone app to remind him when to take the medication and to act as a diary of how his illness affects him. This attention to detail means that daily log is available before the short meetings he has with his consultant every six to nine months. The uMotif app on Bedford’s phone is now being used by about 1,000 patients with 10 different conditions in the UK, the United States and Australia. The clinical information, such as how severe a tremor is or whether symptoms of their condition are getting worse, is sent in advance to doctors, saving time in consultations. Each condition monitored by the app has 10 different trackers from a total of 250.

Why Your Next Package Will Be Delivered By An Uber. Geographic saturation is the key to network effects and profitability in the ridesharing business.

Why Your Next Package Will Be Delivered By An Uber

The more drivers Uber or Lyft have in a given region, the faster the pick-up times, the better the customer experience and the more rider demand — which in turn allows drivers to earn more money and attracts more drivers to the network. David Sacks best illustrated Uber’s positive feedback cycle last year: If Sacks is right, that the ridesharing provider with the most geographic saturation ends up with the lowest costs and best rider experience, then the strategy is clear: Raise as much money as possible to subsidize both supply and demand in what, to some observers, appears to be a winner-take-all market.

But do Uber’s network effects really scale infinitely, or will they reach a point of decreasing marginal returns?

New iPhone app will help conduct the largest LGBT health study ever. With transgender celebrities gracing magazine covers and the Supreme Court set to rule on gay marriage across the U.S., the LGBT movement has come a long way. But we’re still far behind when it comes to addressing the health and wellness of LGBT people. To address that, medical researchers are launching a new “PRIDE Study” to shed some light on the unique health needs of LGBT folks—and they’re using iPhones to conduct it.

A new ResearchKit app developed by the University of California at San Francisco will survey a wide range of LGBT folks about health issues like HIV/AIDS, smoking, cancer, obesity, mental issues and depression. “The main question there is, what is the relationship between being LGBTQ—or more broadly a sexual or gender minority person—and mental and physical health?” Mitchell Lunn, co-director of the PRIDE Study at UCSF, told BuzzFeed News.

A new app lets you follow the progress of NASA's New Horizons spacecraft, which is in the home stretch of its historic mission to Pluto.

New Horizons will make the first-ever flyby of Pluto on July 14, zooming within 7,800 miles (12,500 kilometers) of the dwarf planet's surface. The Pluto Safari app, which came out last month, keeps tabs on New Horizons, counting its close encounter down to the second, and teaches users about the frigid, distant realm the spacecraft is exploring. Pluto Safari is available for Apple and Android devices, and it's free.

At midnight on 31 December 1999, a piece of music began to play for a thousand years. At heart, Jem Finer’s Longplayer is the application of a few simple and precise rules to six short pieces of music, but the result is an infinite composition which will not repeat itself until 31st December 2999. Each track moves in and out of phase with the others, like planets and moons whose orbits gradually bring them closer together and then propel them apart over the course of years, decades, even centuries. The piece was the result of years of research into musical systems and is intended to force us to confront the reality of deep time, of environmental and social processes which play out beyond the experience of any individual.
