Bin stickers to improve road safety
Large stickers on bins, which include photos of children stepping out onto the road, are aiming to cut residential traffic speed and keep drivers aware of possible hazards. If someone is exceeding the speed limit, these stickers should prompt them to immediately slow down. Even small changes in vehicle speed can have a dramatic impact on stopping distances. www.australianroadsafetyfoundation.com

A spa for babies
At this spa in Houston, Texas, babies aged between two weeks and eight months are put in waterproof nappies then fitted with a double-circle flotation device to support their head and neck. The floats allow the babies to move their arms and legs in the water as the bob and play for about 25 minutes. Mothers say the experience helps their babies relax and sleep better. www.floatbabies.com

Undercover police to catch thieves
As well as CCTV cameras more undercover police are now helping to watch for danger in major cities. A friend recently had her wallet stolen from her bag, without her knowing, near a Paris train station. An undercover policeman saw what happened, ran after the thief and retrieved the wallet.

Genome sequencing to diagnose genetic conditions
The Garvan Institute has launched Australia's first clinical whole-genome sequencing service. This new service will help hundreds of thousands of Australians who currently live with a genetic condition, many of which are rare and challenging to diagnose. It will increase the diagnosis rates of these conditions from around 20 per cent to 40 - 60 per cent. One test will put an end to the long and complicated journey to diagnosis that many families currently endure. www.genome.one

Believe in yourself and your idea
These are some of the rejections Melanie Perkins received before she was able to make her new design business Canva a major success. She presented her story at Sunrise 2016- one of the points being that you should not get too disappointed by rejection- learn from it and make your idea better.
