A simple blood test for cancer?
Grail is on a quest to detect multiple types of cancer before symptoms, via a single, simple blood test. The test looks at cell-free plasma to find fragments of so-called circulating tumour DNA (ctDNA) sloughed off by cancer cells. Detecting cancer sooner ? before symptoms ? means you can intervene earlier and people are less likely to die. http://www.inkl.com/newsletters/morning-edition/news/could-we-soon-be-able-to-detect-cancer-in-10-minutes?

Drugs that delay diabetes
Researchers have found that diabetes could be kept at bay in animals by clearing out defective insulin-producing cells. Drug development has previously been focused on preserving these ?beta cells? by preventing the immune system wiping them out, but US researchers say their findings turn this on its head. Their data suggest the problem may not be an immune system gone awry. Instead, perhaps therapies should find a way to do the job the immune system is failing to do: clear the senescent cells early on. http://www.inkl.com/newsletters/morning-edition/news/paradigm-shift-in-type-1-diabetes-shows-new-drugs-which-could-delay-disease-s-emergence?

A creative way to impress clients
Look carefully at the floor in this hallway. Is it warped? No, it?s actually perfectly flat. It was designed by Casa Ceramica, a tile company from Manchester, UK as a creative way to introduce clients to their showroom. Other uses suggested include stopping children running down a hallway. http://www.casaceramica.co.uk/our-optical-illusion-entrance/

Giving children the confidence to be whatever they want to be
After 12 years leading one of the world?s most well-known food and beverage companies, Indra Nooyi will step down as chief executive of PepsiCo in October. Every night at the dinner table, her mother would ask the children to write a speech about what they would do if they were president, chief minister or prime minister?? every day would be a different world leader they?d be asked to play. At the end of dinner, they had to give the speech, and she decided who she was going to vote for. In that way she gave them the confidence to be whatever they wanted to be https://www.smartcompany.com.au/people-human-resources/leadership/eleven-pearls-wisdom-outgoing-pepsico-chief-indra-nooyi/?
