Google helps track Nepal typhoid

KATHMANDU — Scientists announced on Monday they had combined cutting-edge gene sequencing technology with Google Earth to accurately map the spread of typhoid in Kathmandu for the first time.

The Nepalese capital was described in a 2008 study as "a typhoid fever capital of the world", with thousands of cases a year reported, but outbreaks have been hard to chart in a city where streets are rarely given names.

Academy report warns of over-reliance on global satellite navigation systems

Society may already be dangerously over-reliant on satellite radio navigation systems like GPS, the Royal Academy of Engineering warns. The range of applications using the technology is now so broad that, without adequate independent backup, signal failure or interference could potentially affect safety systems and other critical parts of the economy.
