2 Timothy 4:3-5

2 Timothy 4:3-5
For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears;
And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.
But watch thou in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, make full proof of thy ministry.

1 Corinthians 1:18-19

1 Corinthians 1:18-19
For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.
For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent.

Luke 2:13-15

Luke 2:13-15
And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying,
Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.
And it came to pass, as the angels were gone away from them into heaven, the shepherds said one to another, Let us now go even unto Bethlehem, and see this thing which is come to pass, which the Lord hath made known unto us.

Matthew 13:22

Matthew 13:22
He also that received seed among the thorns is he that heareth the word; and the care of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, choke the word, and he becometh unfruitful.

Google embarks on smart contact lenses for diabetics

Google embarks on smart contact lenses for diabetics
What if people with diabetes didn’t have to prick their fingers several times a day to conduct blood sugar tests — but instead could simply wear contacts?

Google has been working on smart contact lenses embedded with sensors “so small they look like bits of glitter” and an antenna “thinner than a human hair.”

But these lenses aren’t being developed to give people super-human sight or cast the Internet over their field of view — rather, they could potentially help diabetics monitor their glucose levels.
Google announced Thursday that it’s been working on this secret project at its Google[x] research lab. Not only has it developed prototypes of these smart contact lenses, but it’s also done multiple clinical research studies, met with the US Food and Drug Administration, and is looking for potential partners to bring the product to market.
“We’re now testing a smart contact lens that’s built to measure glucose levels in tears using a tiny wireless chip and miniaturized glucose sensor that are embedded between two layers of soft contact lens material,” the project co-founders Brian Otis and Babak Parviz wrote in a blog post. “We’re testing prototypes that can generate a reading once per second.”
Diabetes is said to be one of the fastest growing diseases in the world. According to Google, it affects one in 19 people around the globe. In order to keep blood sugar levels in check, diabetics must give themselves finger prick blood tests throughout the day.
These tests can be time consuming and painful. But they’re crucial — if glucose levels get out of control, diabetics risk damage to their eyes, kidneys, and heart.
For years scientists have been investigating other ways to test blood sugar levels. One branch of research has been exploring breathalyzers as a way to detect heightened glucose levels. Researchers have also looked into using tears for glucose tracking, which is where the idea of a contact lens came along.

Using tears is complicated, however, because it’s been hard for scientists to collect tears for testing. So, it’s still unclear how effective this body fluid works in measuring glucose levels. Additionally, this product is far off from any sort of mainstream use. Not only does Google need to find partners to get the contact lenses to market, but it also needs to go through the arduous FDA clearance process.
Besides blood sugar testing, Google also hopes that the smart contact lenses can warn users if their glucose levels are high or low.
“We’re exploring integrating tiny LED lights that could light up to indicate that glucose levels have crossed above or below certain thresholds,” Otis and Parviz wrote. “We hope this could someday lead to a new way for people with diabetes to manage their disease.”

Matthew 10:29-31
Are not two sparrows sold for a farthing? and one of them shall not fall on the ground without your Father.
But the very hairs of your head are all numbered.
Fear ye not therefore, ye are of more value than many sparrows
