Technology – Developers are continuous

working on integrating tech and medicine

to save lives. Around 610,000 people

die of heart disease in the United

States each year, making it the leading

cause of death for both men and women.

Now there’s a smartwatch that prevents

heart-related conditions: iBeat features

tiny micro sensors that monitors a user's

heart rate for symptoms of a heart attack

or cardiac arrest. These sensors can notify users and can even call 911,

then utilizing its GPS for location tracking. Products like iBeat continue

to change the way we look at cardiovascular disease and prevention.

Media – Film and television production in Chicago is booming according

to Robert Moskal, Directory of Chicago Film Office, who indicates

Credit – On September 20 th a class-action lawsuit was filed in Atlanta,

Georgia against Equifax alleging “that Equifax unduly put small business

operators at risk in terms of the cost of Equifax business reports

and the availability of credit and exposure to business identity theft,

which often is directly linked to the personal creditworthiness of small

business owners.” Consumers are permitted to obtain one free credit

report annually, but businesses are required to pay $99 for their reports.

The suit charges that Equifax is profiting off of their information without

their knowledge of contents or accuracy.
