  • How A Young Woman Making $15 An Hour 'Glamped' To Build Her Emergency Fund

    Business Insider contributor Jackie Lam says she took an unconventional approach to building her emergency fund. Wasting no time, the minute she got her first, tiny, rented apartment, she began saving towards her goal of $5,000. And she got there fast, by 'glamping' in her apartment. For the first few months of residency, she ate and slept on the floor. Later, her mattress and box spring came from IKEA. It took her three years to finally buy a used loveseat off Craigslist. The rest of her furniture was lovingly hand-picked from the curb. Lam kept her grocery bill down to $25 a week by planning menus based on sales. By using Christmas LED lights and candles, spent $15 a month on electricity. She kept her car in great shape by biking, walking, and taking the bus everywhere she could. And guess what? She hit her target in just a year!

  • New 'Life Guard Drone' Saves Drowning Bathers in Under a Minute

    Drones have revolutionised many industries already, including photography, military reconnaissance, and even sports video, but the latest drone innovation may save your life. A unique quadcopter drone developed for the beaches of Spanish Catalonia is designed to save drowning bathers by tossing them a lifejacket from the air. The drone is operated by rescue workers from the beach, which use a built-in video camera to navigate the quadcopter and life vest to a drowning swimmer and allows rescuers to monitor an emergency situation real-time. Developers claim the drone can reach a drowning bather in less than a minute, compared to a life guard, who usually takes up to three minutes. The drone is still being tested, but it could be saving lives by the end of the year.

  • 'Life-saving' peanut paste shortage threatens more malnutrition in northern Kenya

    A nutrient-dense peanut paste long used to prevent child starvation in disasters across the globe can mean the difference between life and death in a drought-hit region in Kenya. However, UNICEF says the conflict in Ukraine is making ready-to-use therapeutic food (RUTF) more expensive to manufacture and procure. "If we ran out of these, more deaths would be recorded very soon," says James Jarso of aid group World Vision.
