It is fascinating to think of an implantable device that could help improve or even dare say cure any neurological disorders. Elon Musk's vision for the Neuralink is quite impressive and may almost seem out of reach. This integration with technology and medical care to an entirely different level.
The Neuralink is an implanted device that is about the size of a coin. It has hundreds of threads that are attached to it. These threads are microscopic and a fraction of the size of a strand of hair. To give a comparison one thread is 5 microns thick, a human hair is 100-microns thick. These threads are embedded about 4mm into the brain tissue using a robotic arm. Actually, the end result is to have this procedure all done robotically, taking 1 hour to complete. Once the threads are embedded the coin size chip sits flush with your skull, leaving only a small scar that is covered by your hair.
This theory is heavily criticized by many. If Elon Musk and his team are able to bring their ideas to fruition, then it will be ground breaking in neuroscience. However, where there is good, evil is always lurking. I think there will be a great deal of responsibility that will have to be taken while developing this software.

This episode is meant to expand your knowledge and to help raise awareness for AIDS!
To understand AIDS, we should first start with how it progresses through HIV.
HIV (human immunodeficiency virus) is a virus that attacks the body’s immune system, making a person more vulnerable to other infections and diseases.
- It’s spread by contact with certain bodily fluids of a person with HIV
- most commonly during unprotected sex (sex without a condom or HIV medicine to prevent or treat HIV)
- Through sharing injection drug equipment.
- Untreated, HIV can lead to the disease AIDS (acquired immunodeficiency syndrome).
Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome (AIDS) is the most severe phase of HIV infection.
People with AIDS have such badly damaged immune systems that they get an increasing number of severe illnesses. Without treatment, people with AIDS typically survive about three years.
