An Artist Lifted by 20,000 Balloons

<p>Artist Noemi Lakmaier performed an artistic piece titled &ldquo;Cherophobia&rdquo; for over nine hours at the Sydney Opera House. The artist was tied to a frame and lifted from the stage using 20,000 multi-colored helium balloons. &ldquo;Cherophobia&rdquo; is a psychiatric condition that is known as the extreme fear of happiness. The artist&rsquo;s own experience with his disability had inspired him to create this project. It involves the concept of detachment on a very large scale that reflects the ideas of restraint, patience, and anticipation. The exhibit was open free to the public inside the iconic venue&rsquo;s Concert Hall.</p>

Fitbit and Diabetes Monitoring

<p>Fitbit is now expanding its health monitoring capabilities beyond simply fitness tracking. The company is teaming up with a big medical device maker, named Dexcom, to help people with diabetes track their health directly on their wrists. The body&rsquo;s glucose levels will be accessible right alongside the steps, heart rate, and other statistics tracked by the device. However, in order to benefit from this new feature, patients must connect one of Dexcom&rsquo;s devices to the Fitbit application. Putting the data right on the smart watch should make keeping track throughout the day a very seamless experience.</p>

China Plans to Ban Gasoline Cars

<p>The Chinese ministry has started planning out a timeline for the end of petrol and diesel cars. What is surprising is that China is the world&rsquo;s biggest car market which sold approximately 28 million cars last year (a third of the 88 million cars and vans sold worldwide). China has come to this decision as it employs aggressive tactics to suppress the perennial air pollution. It has also come up with laws that involve cars being allowed on roads on alternate days, and heavy vehicles stop driving during seasons with high smog levels. Moreover, China plans to build a network of 800,000 electric vehicle charging points by this year&rsquo;s end.</p>
