Top medical innovations address headache, diabetes, cancerAn Autonomic Technologies Inc. (ATI) Neurostimulator, an almond-size device that is implanted in the mouth to relief severe headaches, is pictured in this undated handout photo. The best medical innovations for next year include the device and a hand-held scanner resembling a blow dryer that detects skin cancer, the Cleveland Clinic said on October 31, 2012. The miniaturized device -- invented at the Cleveland Clinic and spun off into a separate, private company called Autonomic Technologies Inc -- is implanted in the upper gum above the second molar to treat cluster headaches and migraine headaches. A lead tip of the implant is placed near specific nerves behind the bridge of the nose. Credit: Reuters/Handout http://www.reuters.com/article/2012/10/31/us-innovation-idUSBRE89U06F20121031

What is life?
It is the flash of a firefly in the night, the breath of a buffalo in the wintertime. It is the little shadow which runs across the grass and loses itself in the sunset.
