Your Time Will Come
The exact time or cause of your death is unknown to you. Even when faced with a fatal diagnosis, you don’t know exactly when you’ll actually bite the bullet. For 13-year old Athitaya Onsuwan, who survived the December tsunami that ravaged her small seaside village in Thailand, that time was this morning. Onsuwan ran a mile up a mountainside before collapsing of exhaustion during the tsunami disaster that claimed the lives of 5,400 of her fellow villagers, but she could not hold-out for the heart transplant she needed to survive her deteriorating condition. "She told me, 'I can't hold on any longer,' and I told her, 'Try to hold out a little bit longer because you're going to get surgery in Bangkok soon,” her dad told reporters via telephone.
Volvo Wants Your Car To Check Your Breath
Ford Motor Company’s Swedish arm – Volvo, is testing a new breathalyzer seat belt mechanism that will test your alcohol level. To start the vehicle, the driver will need to buckle their seat belt and blow into the mechanism. As long as the driver’s alcohol content is below the legal .08 limit, the car will start. In addition, Volvo is also testing special keys that automatically tell the vehicle it cannot exceed a certain speed; perfect for families with younger drivers. Volvo says that these programs are only in a testing stage and are not close to being installed in production vehicles.
