Mystery Volcano Photo #41 - UPDATED

It's been over a month since the last MVP, so I thought it might be time to throw out another. Last time, Chris Reykjavik got the right answer - Kaula Island in Hawai`i (top left), a remnant of a tuff cone on a shield volcano - after what might be a record number of guesses by the Eruptions crew. Hopefully the new one will give you similar fits.

  • Boris Behncke - 7
  • Don Crain - 5
  • The Bobs - 4
  • Chris Reykjavik - 3

    3D printing might save your life one day. It's transforming medicine and health care.

    What can 3D printing do for medicine? The "sky is the limit," says Northwell Health researcher Dr. Todd Goldstein.

    • Medical professionals are currently using 3D printers to create prosthetics and patient-specific organ models that doctors can use to prepare for surgery.
    • Eventually, scientists hope to print patient-specific organs that can be transplanted safely into the human body.
    • Northwell Health, New York State's largest health care provider, is pioneering 3D printing in medicine in three key ways.

    • "I consider that a man's brain originally is like a little empty attic, and you have to stock it with such furniture as you choose," Sherlock Holmes famously remarked.
    • In this lesson, Maria Konnikova, author of Mastermind: How to think like Sherlock Holmes, teaches you how to optimize memory, Holmes style.
    • The goal is to expand one's limited "brain attic," so that what used to be a small space can suddenly become much larger because we are using the space more efficiently.

    • Our ability to behave rationally depends not just on our ability to use the facts, but on our ability to give those facts meaning. To be rational, we need both facts and feelings. We need to be subjective.
    • In this lesson, risk communication expert David Ropeik teaches you how human rationality influences our perception of risk.
    • By the end of it, you'll understand the pitfalls of your subjective risk perception system so that you can avoid these traps in the future.
