Wearable skin to monitor health conditions
Australian engineers at Monash University have developed a stretchable skin that can be used to monitor a wide variety of medical conditions. The electronic skin contains sensors that send signals to smartphones. The thin bandaid-like ?wearable skin? is made from gold and is highly stretchable. The wearability of the electronic skin means it can be used to track a range of health issues, including blood pressure, cholesterol and glucose levels. www.sbs.com.au/news/australians-develop-new-wearable-skin-to-monitor-health-conditions?

North Sydney to become Non Smoking- NS
North Sydney Council has passed a recommendation to make its CBD the first smoke-free business district in Australia. The ultimate aim is to make North Sydney the first smoke-free municipality in Australia. There are about 72,000 residents and this means all shared public spaces - streets, plazas and parks - will become no-go zones for smokers. It includes outdoor seating areas in front of restaurants and cafes. Smoking prevalence in the Northern Sydney local health district is 9.5 per cent, lower than the state average of 15.2 per cent. https://www.smh.com.au/politics/nsw/north-sydney-set-to-become-australia-s-first-smoke-free-cbd-20180925-p505xn.html
