Smartphones to Diagnose Sleep Disorders when People are Awake

When we look and analyze a schedule of a normal person, we will notice that the person is having one or the other disorder. One common disorder that is found in any ordinary person is the sleeping disorder. And in today’s era, 90% of people work in the IT sector. When it comes to IT sector, stress is always associated to a person. And this is the main reason of sleeping disorder.

On the other hand, a solution to this problem has been introduced. We cannot claim it as a solution, but it can be said as a preventive measure. A new system has been developed in the smartphone that can analyze your sleeping disorder when you are awake.

“We have invented a new system which could assist in analysis of sleep disorders and OSA and in a systematic way,” said Yaniv Zigel. Yaniv works in Israel at Ben-Gurion University of the Negev.

“The audio-examination app can trace voice signals from subjects that are wide awake. Now, it is possible to get a quick estimation of the sleep disorder without any study including overnight sleep,” said Yaniv.

Yaniv made a smart move introducing this technology via smartphone and not any medical device. The reason behind this ―smartphones are present with humans for almost 24 hours. This will be easy for tracing and analysis. Also it will reduce the cost need for the same.

Let us hope that this tech will be a success and will help in solving the disorders.

Cheetah: One of the fastest animals may get extinct

It has been seen that the growing population of human beings has always impacted the ecosystem and had disturbed the habitat of wildlife. The interference of the humans is so intense that their developmental activities have literally destroyed the shelter of wildlife creatures. The worst part—animals that more familiar with the human race are now in danger and on their way to the extinction.

At this time, the fastest hunter, cheetah is in danger or may get into history with only skeletons left, which would be found in museums or auctions.

The report released states that the total number of cheetah left on the earth is merely 7,100. The reason had been disclosed as the rising human conflicts with the animals, their entries into the population in search of food, and large scale development in wildlife regions.

As per the survey, half of the cheetah population is found in six nations that come under southern regions of Africa. On the other side of the world, specifically in Asia, the scenario is more shocking.

Cheetah is a carnivore and is famous for speedy hunting. While searching for the food, it mostly happens to cross the limitation of protected areas. As per the survey, it has been identified that 77% of their territory is outside the protected areas and reserves.

Another reason for the declining numbers is cubs trafficking demand from the Gulf countries. It has been recorded that 1,200 cheetah cubs are trafficked out of Africa in the duration of last 10 years.

In response to this, International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN) is calling a report to change the categorization of the speedy cheetah from vulnerable to endangered list and will take an effective measure to protect the mammal.
