Find an article, 1 per week minimum (first one due the week ending 9/26/2014), Any article that you can connect to computers, technology, Internet (++health care!) is allowed. Put a link to the article, a brief summary and what about the article caught your eye/interested you, and a proper APA reference citation. I used Citation Machine to construct my reference. You could also use/double check with the OWL Site linked from the school website. Post in an article on YOUR blog.

Safely Flying Ebola Infected Patients
The first patient transport isolator for aeromedical evacuation, called the Air Transport Isolator, was developed for the U.K.'s Royal Air Force in the 1970s and also used by the U.S. military for decades. The RAF recently used the same system to fly a British Ebola patient home onboard a military transport aircraft for treatment. But the SARS outbreak prompted the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention as well as a number of private air ambulance services worldwide to develop many more isolation units capable of moving infectious disease patients under a variety of conditions. This article explains how technology developed during a previous pandemic is being used to safely transport Ebola infected patients.
I am a high school student in a Science/health related program taking a technology course, so of course something that involved technology and science interested me! I hope I never need to be transported with an infectious disease, but I'm glad to see safe transport methods being developed.

In this case, I found a related video (You won't always have a related video!), so I embedded it here:
