Doctors in US city go paperless by using Google Glass
New York : Ten doctors at CHI Health Centre in the Omaha city of Nebraska state in the US are using Google Glass - personal assistant tool to help them take better care of patients by reducing the cumbersome paperwork.
 
Google Glass allows a remote scribe to take detailed notes for the physician - allowing the doctor to provide more direct patient care, ketv.com reported on Saturday.
 
The scribe delivers vital information like weight, lab work and blood pressure to the doctor through a projector, the report added.
 
"I had a hard time with the typing in the room," a doctor said, adding, "For me, if I don't look at a patient’s face, I would miss a lot of emotions. Now, I don't even have to turn on the computer in the room.”
 
The doctor said she just asks her helper scribe to put information and she gets it in no time.
 
According to the report, although the patients or the doctors cannot see or hear the scribe, they can see and hear what is going on during the appointment through a projector.
 
The health centre would soon be give away more devices to 10 more doctors, the report added.

The world's changed spin: How the East is rising again
Jaipur : The West is relinquishing its predominant role in global politics and economics to the East - Asia spreading from the Middle to the Far East - in this century and the significance of the ancient "Silk Roads", which were once the hub of commerce, culture and knowledge, is slowly getting restored, says a historian.
 
The Silk Roads area will shape the next century as it plays a significant role in the hydrocarbon economy, and in one sense, the terrorist outrages taking place in the European capitals and elsewhere arise from the Middle East, which is its significant part, said Oxford academician Peter Frankopan at a session titled "The Silk Roads" at the Jaipur Literature Festival on Sunday.
 
"Control over networks was the story of the 19th century, the 20th century and will be the story of the 21st century but now Eastern nations like India and China will be resuming eminence," he contended.
 
Frankopan, who in his new book "The Silk Roads: A New History of the World" seeks to reassess the role of the east where civilization itself began and the world's great religions were born and flourished but was eclipsed by the advent of colonialism from the western hemisphere from around the 15th century, says the East's role in shaping the world has not been sufficiently known.
 
Confessing himself influenced by Luke Skywalker, Alexander the Great and Indiana Jones, he said that he is in his book had sought to address the deficiency of the role of East.
 
Legendary travel writer Colin Thubron, who has travelled most of the Silk Roads region and described his adventures in a series of inimitable travelogues, noted Frankopan's book takes history back from the West and was an awesome feat of scholarship and the range of sources that had been consulted would need one knowing 15 to 16 languages.
 
Frankopan also sought to clarify that there was no such thing as a single Silk Road but rather a series of Silk Roads or networks that linked continents and oceans together, and "along which flowed ideas, goods, disease and death and empires were won and lost". 
 
And in the contemporary world, the patterns of exchange are mirroring those that were seen in the Silk Roads, as his book says.
 
On the significance of the area, he said it represented three things were the best of the human species - the willingness and ability to communicate, the ability to cooperate and curiousity.
 
"This is what brings me and you all to the Jaipur Literature Festival," he noted, adding it was along the Silk Roads that the goods and ideas that have shaped and influenced the world flowed till nearly half a millenia ago, when the focus shifted to the western hemisphere and colonialism which was based on unequal relationships and duplicity. 
 
He noted that in the era that the Silk Roads set the pattern for the world and Europe didn't figure into it, since it never had any resources thad could be traded, while there were more Christians in Asia then that had been in Europe till at least the 13th century
 
On the role of India vis-a-vis China in the new order he sketches, Frankopan quipped he was a "historian, not a prophet", but noted from what he understood India and China had been in competition for several centuries now for the leadership of neighbouring areas.
 
Stressing that regional cooperation was important, he said he got the impression that India was disengaging itself from the region.

Moneylife launches Investor Club
Prof Sanjay Bakshi, professor and value investor, wows the 600 people present at BSE with a scintillating and thought-provoking presentation
 
Moneylife Smart Savers, a SEBI-registered investment adviser and part of the Moneylife group, launched Moneylife Investor Club on 23rd January 2016 at the International Convention Hall, Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE). The event was supported by BSE and Kotak Securities. The first event of the club was a remarkable presentation by Professor Sanjay Bakshi on the consequences of our risk-seeking behaviour, which can lead to huge losses for us. The event was graced by a packed audience of nearly 600, which was testimony to first, the enormous popularity of Professor Bakshi, second, to so many people being interested in long-term investing and third, to the wide reach of Moneylife. Though the event was in Mumbai, people from different parts of the country such as Pune, Hyderabad, Secunderabad, Dehradun, Bengaluru, Goa and Chennai had come down to attend. 
 
The session started with Sucheta Dalal, director of Moneylife Smart Savers explaining the planned objectives of Investors Club. The Club will promote long-term investment, encourage participants to think for themselves independently through seminars workshops and case studies. It will not offer trading and investment tips, she explained. After making a few opening remarks, Ms Dalal invited Mr Ashish Chauhan, Managing Director (MD) and CEO of Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE) to say a few words. Mr Chauhan remarked that somewhere down the line, with television and media, we have become very much trading-oriented. 
 
He remarked that despite all the transparency and efficiency of transactions that we have been able to generate, we have not been able to get more and more investors into the market somehow. In 1994, we had more investors than we have today. From 1994 to 2016, the middle class has grown by around 10 times. However, the number of investors has come down. He also mentioned that while BSE used to be ‘democracy of the brokers, by the brokers and for the brokers (in other words a brokers’ club), today it is a professional organisation which does not have a single broker on the Board. He offered his best wishes to Moneylife Investor Club and promised to support the club in its objectives. BSE is also supporting many other such initiatives across the country.
 
Mr Chauhan’s remarks were followed by an introduction by Debashis Basu, director of Moneylife Smart Savers, of Prof. Sanjay Bakshi. He sketched out Prof. Bakshi’s remarkable journey as an investor and teacher between 1994 (when he came back from UK after studying at the London School of Economics) and 2005 and invited Prof. Bakshi to give his presentation. Before the start of his presentation, Prof. Sanjay Bakshi thanked Moneylife for inviting him and called Ms Dalal and Mr Basu fearless and ethical. He gave a scintillating talk based on his personal experience of investing over 21 years during which he learned what not to do as a result of painful direct experiences as well as vicarious experiences. Through video clips, images, charts and innumerable stories, and loads of humour, his key message was that we should always try to avoid risk-seeking behavior. 
 
Moneylife Investor Club is hoping to conduct its second session on 20 February 2016 when R Balakrishnan, one of the co-founding members of CRISIL, and one who has over 30 years experience in banking, credit, mutual funds and capital markets, will speak on how to read a balance sheet for investment.

Lot of people want access to the video. Suggest that this be made available at a fee, say equivalent to the session. Uploading it free is unfair to the audience who paid for it

I agree.

And I do think we give value to ML subscribers already... after all, we know how much we sacrifice in terms of revenue to remain independent :-)

People are nowadays more interested, which scrip is going to give maximum returns in minimum period and they are aware that the price of many scrips have no relations whatsoever with its balance sheet or ratios or charts. It is rather some cartels in the market, who take these scrips higher or lower and create artificial hype.

May be... but there were nearly 600 people in that room and many had come from Chennai, securderabad, goa, pune, ahmedabad, vadodara , Dehradun, Delhi and Bengaluru! So I guess there is a lot of interest in value investing too. And in hearing the fundoo professor Sanjay Bakshi!!

Even though I paid for the event, I couldn't make it due to other urgencies. Will this session be made available on any online platform as well.

Do write to MSSN.... if you paid and could not attend, we will surely ensure you get a copy of the session. We are more likely to create DVDs for a price and not load it online. As R Balakrishnan says, it would be unfair to those who paid to attend!
