New device allows brain to bypass spinal cord, move paralyzed limbs

For the first time ever, a paralyzed man can move his fingers and hand with his own thoughts thanks to a new device. A 23-year-old quadriplegic is the first patient to use Neurobridge, an electronic neural bypass for spinal cord injuries that reconnects the brain directly to muscles, allowing voluntary and functional control of a paralyzed limb.

What’s going on: Protests, basically. It started off as a long march called the Azadi or Freedom march by PTI led by Imran Khan an opposition party in the parliament and the Inqalaab or Revolution march by PAT led by Tahir-ul-Qadri, a non entity in the parliament but someone who can pull crowds to himself. The march went from Lahore to Islamabad, the Pakistani capital, where they gave (and are still giving) a dharna, which I think is a sit in in English. These were all peaceful protests and the sit in was peaceful until yesterday, when the protesters started going toward the prime minister house after failed negotiations (and a lot more) and well, they weren’t allowed to go far because the police went in with tear gas, rubber bullets, and also in one instance, actual bullets. This has resulted in about upwards of 200 injuries and 7 people dead, 2 are critical, obviously again these are premature numbers and there’s likely to be a lot more.

Now, WHY: Simply, the march happened because of allegations of rigging in the general election of 2013 that led to Nawaz Sharif, head of the PML-N to come to power. The Lahore Incident, which is linked here (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2014_Lahore_clash), read up. Generally, also non responsiveness to valid rigging allegations, and no sign of opening up areas where these allegations exist. A lot more.

This is a very, very basic thing. I skipped military intervention in talks, the sit in was on going for two weeks, a lot more basis for the march, the entry into the Red Zone, more events. You can google and keep up with this and ask me more questions if you’re still confused. This is also an on going situation.

If I messed up something tell me I’ll fix it. Add more to this if you want.

some good sources to keep up with pakistan:

if someone wants to add on more sources that would be great!!! I’ll add more as I find sources that seem unbiased

Meanwhile in my City; Islamabad, Pakistan, this is happening^. Read THIS , THIS,  THIS to find out  what exactly is happening and why. So we’re pretty much stranded, there’s tear gas being thrown, plastic bullets being shot, and people getting hurt. I just hope it all ends soon. It’s so sad on many levels, please pray for Pakistan.

I feel it’s my responsibility to tell you guys what’s going on in the capital of Pakistan right now. I live a 40 kms away from it and for the past 17 days since the 14th of August 2014, the independence day of the country, two political parties have staged protests against the corrupt government. I am not with any party neither do I support the government or the system. What I want to tell you is there are women and children in the protests. Men, women, and children of all ages are being targeted and fired upon by the police. There have been unconfirmed number of injuries and casualties. The police are not letting the wounded get medical attention. They are not letting ambulances get through and they are not allowing people to leave. This is happening in the capital and no media channel is reporting it with full accuracy. One of the biggest news group in the country is a supporter of the government. It makes me angry that no one in the world is talking about something as big as this.
