Moxi Group is the first company to come out with a bendy phone and it looks like it’s straight out of a futuristic movie. The concept of a phone that bends sounds cool, but how well would it function? There are reports that it might not function as well as a regular smart phone because it’s too flexible, which means that it’ll be too small to put in the “computer” or the “brains” of the phone. If it’s unable to fit a regular “computer” into the phone, it won’t be able to hold as much memory or do as much as a regular smart phone. And as far as the battery goes, it wouldn’t be able to hold a big battery like regular smart phones, which would be a major issue for the public. Even though there are disadvantages to the bendy phone, there are some advantages as well. The good thing about the bendy phone is just that – it bends! Because it bends, it’s more compact (small), which means you wouldn’t have to carry it around in your pocket or purse. Another advantage is that it clips on like a bracelet, which means you don’t have to mess around with it to simply get it around your wrist. A bendy phone sounds like a cool concept that could do possibly do well. What do you think? Would you get the bendy phone? Let us know in the comments below!

Do you have a family member that has been diagnosed with cancer? Cancer is a disease that can affect anybody regardless of age, race, or gender. However, when someone in the family has been diagnosed with cancer, it affects everyone in the family. We try to tell ourselves that it’s a disease that’ll just go away on its own. Unfortunately, cancer cannot just “go away”. Even though there is not a cure for cancer, modern technology and medicine has allowed for people to get diagnosed quicker so that doctors can try to prevent the cancer from spreading. For most types of cancer (when caught early), it can be prevented from spreading further through the use of chemotherapy. Chemotherapy is a therapy used, either through medicines or radiation, that can stop the cancer from spreading or it can get rid of the cancer altogether. It is never easy to deal with cancer, but there are doctors that will go above and beyond to try and help a cancer patient. If you are having a hard time with dealing with the news of cancer in your family, just know that you are not alone and there are resources that will allow you to simply talk or vent.

Spring time is right around the corner and for some people, that also means allergy season for them. Most people have seasonal allergies, which is mainly caused by the sprouting of pollen in our yards. When this happens, people with allergies to pollen start to sneeze, cough, and get watery eyes. Then there’s also people with year-round allergies, which means that they are just allergic to whatever is in the air (dust, dirt). So can we get rid of our allergies? Unfortunately, allergies will last your whole life, but there are things that we can do to help us control some of the allergy symptoms that come with it. The best way to help alleviate (make it weaker) allergy symptoms is to take allergy medications. These medications can often be found over the counter, but for some people with more severe symptoms, they might have to take prescription allergy medication. For people with year-round allergies, allergy medications should be used. However, doing things such as vacuuming, cleaning the house, not being around smoke are also ways to lessen the effects of allergy reactions. For people with seasonal allergies, allergy medication should be used, but staying away from flowers and limiting your time outside could help as well. Allergies are a part of life, but it definitely doesn’t have to ruin your life.
