A new study released by the Journal of Applied Microbiology cautions against sharing touch screens with others during flu season.


"If you're sharing the device, then you're sharing your influenza with someone else who touches it," Timothy Julian, the Stanford doctoral student who co-authored the study, told The Sacramento Bee.


Everyone knows that if you touch things with germs on them, you have a greater risk at ingesting those germs. New technology is quickly becoming touch based, and many people use these touch based technologies, all day long. Electronic airport kiosks, movie ticket kiosks, ATM machines, and train ticket vendors are all touch screen and all public. Few of us think about washing our hands after buying a bus ticket or using the ATM, but considering all the touching going on, it might not be a bad idea.

What's Up at QuickMedical?!

October has brought us some unexpectedly nice weather. Last week we were lucky enough to enjoy a sunny, clear day in the 60s during our annual Government Sales BBQ . CEO Scott (right) and Government Sales Director Tom(left) cooked up some tasty steak and bratwurst, along with some root beer and real beer to quench our thirst, from our favorite local brewery--Snoqualmie Brewery.

How did Cavemen Treat Senior Citizens?

Our cave dwelling ancestors and the Neanderthals have a bad reputation for being violent, smelly and dumb. But early "almost-humans" either had cultures or were creating them. Their behavior is revealed through archaeological research and some of it is not that different from modern behavior. Do you ever wonder how cavemen treated their elders?

Mystery Monday: Tesla's DEATH RAY

Mystery Monday: Tesla's DEATH RAY



Nikola Tesla is mostly known today for the mysteries surrounding him. Myths and legend aside, Tesla's patents and theoretical work formed the basis of modern alternating current (AC) electric power systems, including the AC motor. This work helped usher in the Second Industrial Revolution.


However, it's Mystery Monday, and while we love science and fact, on Mystery Monday we throw them both out the window and speculate on the what if's.

Everything Gives You Cancer

Everything Gives You Cancer

In 1982 British musician Joe Jackson released an album called Night and Day. On the surface, the album is a tongue-in-cheek homage to Cole Porter. The playful, but dark music instantly time warps the listener to a New York City of 30 years ago, before the Internet and the Lion King on Broadway. Back then, the Russians were the enemy and Cable TV was a new, exciting and expensive thing. Is it dated? Sure, but that's part of the beauty. What does Joe Jackson have to do with QuickMedical? Glad you asked.
