      Together, you and the Heart and Stroke Foundation [http://www.heartandstroke.com.] are creating more survivors. One of these survivors is Jen Bogart, a vibrant 39 year old, who enjoyed life — working, studying, volunteering, practicing yoga, and hanging out with friends. But one morning, her life came to a sudden stop. Learn more: [http://bit.ly/1rLqyW5] Waking with a pounding headache, blurry vision and an unsteady walk, Jen tried calling in sick but couldn’t find the words. She emailed instead and went back to bed. But things got worse. Much worse. Unknowingly, Jen suffered a stroke. When her friends got her to the hospital, she couldn’t walk and spoke only three words. Thankfully, doctors saved her life; but stroke changed it. With speech and occupational therapy, Jen now enjoys life at a slower pace. She reads, solves puzzles, cooks, rests, does yoga and goes for walks. Stroke didn’t stop this dynamo — and she’s still making progress. Donate now and help create more survivors.

            How does the dirty water you flush down a toilet get cleaned safely before it's released to the environment? That's the work of a wastewater treatment plant. The Northeast Ohio Regional Sewer District, headquartered in Cleveland, operates three such plants, including the largest in Ohio. Let Wally Waterdrop take you on an up-close-and-personal tour of the treatment process. You can also find more information at neorsd.org and wheredoesitgo.org.

              Bones is an orthopedic sensor cast for capture muscle activities. It is supported by a community-based website for fracture cast users and supporters who track their mobility recover achievements with Bones casts. After a fracture the patient goes to the Hospital to be analyzed and receive the proper treatment by their doctor. There they are presented to Bones. Every time the user turns on Bones all the muscle activity on the fracture area are captured by electromyography (EMG) sensors and stored in the cast device. Later on this information can be sync to user’s Bones online profile where they have a history of their activities as a simulation of their full mobility recovery time according to their progression and exercising routine. On the website Bones analyse users achievements and suggest exercises for specific locations in order to keep the muscles strains around the fracture area active and reduce their movement recovery time.
