A UConn graduate student is developing a new micro-scale power source that is significantly smaller and more efficient than the batteries currently used in most cardiac pacemakers today.
Working under the tutelage of chemistry professors James Rusling and Challa Kumar, Ph.D. student Islam Mosa is developing an implantable electronic device that draws its power from an ultra-small, ultra-thin supercapacitor.
“Our supercapacitors are thinner than a human hair,” says Mosa, who is pursuing his doctorate in the Department of Chemistry in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. “They are also very stable. They could be designed to power a cardiac pacemaker for the life of the patient.”

15.01.2017 How Feeling My Pain Released Me From It
But I am not going to do this digitally. I can't.*
Why, you ask? Aren't you, Lucy, getting emails and tweets and text messages galore about petitions to sign, groups to join, emails to send, and hashtags to use.
Yes, I am. More than I can count.
And the vast majority of them want me to sign up, to send them my friends' email addresses and my cell numbers or follow them on Facebook to learn more and participate. I won't do it.
First of all, I don't use Facebook. Second, while there's good reason to believe that many of these requests and calls to action are coming from legitimate groups, whose missions I support, and to whom I might give my (but not ever my friends') contact information, there's also good reason to assume otherwise. The otherwise takes at least two forms 1) the legitimate nonprofit or political group is using third party software to collect my name and cell number, and that software company is going to package up my personal info. Sure, they'll sell it somewhere. But, more important, I know they'll hand it over when the government asks for it and there's nothing I can do about it or 2) the whole thing is just an email/cell phone farming exercise wrapped in the guise of issues I care about.
It's not just that I don't want commercial companies holding all that information on me. I am working to resist the policies of my government. The U.S. government has access to all of that information once it's online. Yes, I will hit the streets to protest. But I don't plan to call the police or immigration services or Donald Trump and tell him my plans, where I will be when, and with whom. And I don't intend to do the digital version of that and hand the very forces I'm resisting the equivalent of that information in fine-grained digital form.
If you want to know how to deal with this reality regarding your own data and ability to take action then I suggest reading Dragnet Nation, everything else Julia Angwin has ever written for ProPublica, using the materials from EFF's Surveillance Self Defense, and checking out this blog post that points you to other wonderful tools for being smarter about your digital self. Take a training, ask an engineer, attend a cryptoparty, ask a librarian, find another way.
For the political groups, the coalitions and nonprofits, the march organizers and the rally folks - your job is just as important. Don't make me vulnerable to digital enclosure - give me options I can trust in order to work with you. Are you using Facebook for all your outreach? Then count me out.
- Have you a plan for what to do when Facebook again changes their algorithm, and it doesn't work in your favor (or works actively against it?)
- What about when the companies whose platforms you're using hand over all the data they've gathered on your community to the same government you are protesting? Which will happen (it already has)
- Is your group scooping up emails and cell numbers via petitions? Do you know what the software vendor you're using to do that does with that data?
- Has your board of directors put in place its legal strategy to respond to data requests from the government? What will you do when you receive a National Security Letter such as those sent to other nonprofits? Have you trained your staff/volunteers on how to respond? This isn't (just) an IT question, it involves everyone, starting with the person who opens the (e)mail.
- Look at this way - newsrooms are vulnerable. So are you. Learn from them.
Yes, we can use digital tools to help us protest and resist, to organize our communities, to make good philanthropic investments, and to reestablish a democratic government that represents the majority of voters. But first, we need to design and use digital strategies and data models that align with our democratic and philanthropic missions.
*Yes, I get the irony of blogging this on software owned by Google. Think about what info I've shared here and what I haven't.
14.01.2017 Innovation for Empathy
“Thank you,” the Afghan mother said. Tears glistened in her stress-lined eyes. All I had done was teach her son basic English and listened to her story. She had forever transformed my view of life.
She had fled an abusive husband and war-torn home a year earlier. After arriving in Greece, her son was attacked by neo-Nazis while they were sleeping in a park. Yet, she had the most contagiously courageous and kind spirit of anyone I have met.
Her story is becoming disturbingly commonplace. According to the United Nations, 1 in every 113 people is an asylum-seeker, internally displaced or a refugee.
The response of the American public and its politicians swings from welcoming to opposition. President-elect Donald Trump will not resettle any refugees into a community without the state’s approval, and right now Maine, Texas, New Jersey, and Kansas will not accept anyone. Other states are in the process of stopping refugee resettlement.
The country could learn something from Germany, where leaders actively encourage residents to empathize with refugees. The citizens are taught to see the refugees’ humanity and to understand their needs.
While US leaders created fear about accepting 13,000 Syrian refugees, Germany welcomed more than 1.1 million.
One way that Germany is harnessing the power of empathy is a German website that matches refugees with people willing to open up their homes for free. Like a couch-surfing website for people with urgent, longer-term need--participants are personally connecting with the refugees with compassion.
In addition, the government is stimulating civic ownership for the plight of Syrians by encouraging German citizens to participate in planning shelters.
At Hamburg’s HafenCity University, a 3D model of the city allows residents to identify possible sites for shelters. The map electronically displays city regulations and building codes and how a potential shelter might impact the neighborhood.
City planners have adopted 20 suggestions from citizens. Because citizens were involved in the planning process, they feel a sense of ownership for the shelter and the needs of the refugees.
The German Ministry of Education created two free apps to help refugees learn German. Other free apps connect refugees to safe shelter and to each other.
Empathy building initiatives are also beginning in the United States. For example, Doctors Without Borders created a refugee camp simulation called “Forced from Home” last July at the New York Hall of Science. Life-like displays greeted visitors, while virtual reality documentaries played on 360-degree screens.
“Forced From Home will build awareness of why cities’ role in creating welcoming environments for immigrants and refugees is so important,” said Commissioner Nisha Agarwal of the NYC Mayor’s Office of Immigrant Affairs.
In addition, many restaurants are promoting themselves as a gathering place for those concerned about the refugee and immigrant population to gather in solidarity and brainstorm ideas for their safety-building the space for citizens and refugees to bond together.
However, it is a challenge when there is no private-sponsorship program (like Canada has). The refugees truly need concerned citizens advocating for them.
Perhaps America’s physical detachment from the war-torn countries makes it easier to detach emotionally from their people.
My encounter with the refugee community in Greece was brief, but transformative. I happened upon an organization helping refugees while studying abroad, and was enthralled by the strength, intelligence, and character, and uniqueness of the people that I met. After sharing stories, refugees were no longer a number, they were a complex variety of beautiful humans searching for the climax of their story. And one of them was my friend.
America needs innovators to connect American citizens to refugees in a personal way, the way that I was, and stimulate empathy.
