Together at last: Together for Mac finally spawns an iOS app

Together, the popular Mac application for keeping all your digital items in one place, has spawned an iOS app. Called Together for iOS, the application can be downloaded on the App Store for $9.99, and it’s optimized for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. With it, iOS device users can access their Together library using a mobile device; this library can include documents, images, movies, Web pages, bookmarks, or anything else users have dragged into the application. In the app’s release notes, developer Steve Harris explains: Together is an app for keeping things in one place. Notes, documents, images, movies, sounds, web pages and bookmarks can all be kept in Together, tagged, previewed, collected together in different ways and found again instantly. Together works with iCloud to share your library with your iPad, iPhone or iPod touch, and Mac (Mac app available separately). Admittedly, I’ve not used Together for Mac before now, but at first glance the addition of the iOS app could work well for paperless practitioners looking to share their digitized documents between a Mac and several iOS devices. At present, this is something I use Evernote for (automating the process using Hazel and this useful AppleScript), however for best results users do need an Evernote Premium account. Together for iOS. In the iOS app, users can create and import documents and data into Together, they can edit and preview content, and the application also promises iOS d...

Humans among the primates

The views expressed are those of the author and are not necessarily those of Scientific American. A montage of modern primates. From left to right: human, tarsier, gorilla, bonobo, orangutan, crested gibbon, capuchin, macaque, lemur. Image by Darren Naish. It is not in the least bit controversial to picture humans* within the context of the placental mammal group that we belong to, the primates. Nor is it unusual for primatologists, anthropologists or biologists of other sorts to compare the anatomy, social or sexual behaviour, lifestyles or cognitive abilities of humans with those of other primates (e.g., Morris 1967, Sarmiento 1995, 1998, de Waal 2002). Despite this, Homo sapiens is often missed out or ignored when authors review the living primates of the world**, a perhaps understandable omission given that these works are about ‘other’ animals, but a misleading one given that it really helps to see the human lineage as part of the group; as an important and conspicuous part of primate diversity. It is neither novel nor innovative to compare humans with other primates. Here's the cover of a famous book that aimed to popularise a scenario of human evolution and biology. * ‘Human’ as used throughout this article denotes Homo sapiens alone. When H. sapiens and its extinct relatives are being referred to, the term ‘hominin’ is used. ** I should note that several books that cover primate diversity do include our species within ...

Incorporating Pain-Itch Ranking Scale for Skin Lesions May Improve Cancer ...

Researchers from the Temple University School of Medicine in US found that most of the skin cancers involved itch or pain.Steve/FlickrNever ignore those painful, itchy skin lesions. New research shows that they may be signalling skin cancer.Researchers from the Temple University School of Medicine in the US found that most of the skin cancers involved itch or pain. Of the total 339 skin cancer lesions they studied, 36.9 percent appeared with itching and 28.2 percent had pain. These symptoms were more apparent in non-melanoma skin cancers like basal cell carcinoma (BCC) and squamous cell carcinoma than melanoma."Patients sometimes have multiple lesions that are suspicious looking, and those that are itchy or painful should raise high concerns for non-melanoma skin cancers," Dr Gil Yosipovitch, Director of the Temple Itch Center, said in a news release.Melanoma is a cancer that starts in the cells that produce the melanin pigment. Melanoma can be identified through visible changes in the size or color of a mole. Basal cell carcinoma (BCC) is a type of cancer that starts in the basal cells in the outer layer of the skin known as the epidermis and squamous cell carcinoma starts in the squamous cells, which make up maximum of the skin's upper layers.The findings are expected to help improve skin cancer diagnosis."The study highlights the importance of a simple bedside evaluation for the presence and intensity of pain or itch as an easily implem...
