Herz asks an intriguing question in Wired magazine: Is wearable technology failing the people who need it most? What if this biometric technology was put into the hands and on the bodies of people suffering with chronic health conditions like diabetes? It’s not as sexy as a shoe clip that automatically calls Uber when you click your heels three times (yes, that’s a real gadget), but we might actually save some lives. Forty percent of American adults with a chronic disease track their health indicators and because of what’s at stake, they won’t stop doing it the way a weekend athlete might. The real money (and potential), Herz says, is in wearable medical devices rather than fitness trackers.
The Venture Out class project is a frequently cited as a favorite project of COBA alums. Intro to Business students are assigned to teams within their class and together, they come up with a product to sell and a mini business plan to explain how they will market it, drive customers to it, manage their inventory, and ultimately, what they will do with their profits.

Tucker’s father, Dan Tucker, stood outside his home in the San Francisco Bay Area town of Walnut Creek, scrolling through pictures on his phone in disbelief. One showed Jared frolicking in the ocean at a Barcelona beach, his arms raised above his head. Another shows Jared in sunglasses pretending to ride a statue of a lion..
He had Day 2 talent, but an injury history that saw him miss a few games in 2012 and the entire 2013 season raised major concerns about his durability. Those concerns, like the ones about Gregory proved correct. In fact, the concerns over where Jones would end up as a pro, corner or safety, plagued him through his first three seasons as well.
Choi is short with his approach to the green and the ball trickles back down the hill. Woods takes a wedge, that’s right a wedge, for his approach. The ball goes above the hole, on the upslope, before trickling down towards the hole. Perhaps it would have been different had I gotten involved in a class like my husband did, but I wasn’t tempted by any of the classes. They all looked like torture sessions to me. If I’d had a friend to talk to on the next treadmill that I could look forward to seeing each session, I also might have been more motivated to go.
What Marsh didn’t understand was that he hadn’t found a new species at all he had found another apatosaurus, just one with the correct head (it also had extra pelvic vertebrae, but that was because it was younger than the specimen the last guy had found). So there never was a separate dinosaur called brontosaurus: It was just a screwup by a paleontologist. Even stranger, scientists figured this out as early as 1903, but the “brontosaurus” made it to a museum first, so we’ve been calling it that ever since..
