Can a smartphone game help you combat breast cancer?

Cancer Research UK has launched the Play for Cure: Genes in Space free game that will allow you to help carry out vital research into breast cancer without realizing it. It may look like a space flight simulator, but the maps that players use for navigating their spacecraft are actually cleverly disguised pieces of genetic data. The app is available for iPhone, iPad, iPod touch and Android devices and was developed by designers and programmers from companies including Amazon, Facebook and Google. According to Hannah Keartland, citizen science leader for Cancer Research UK, "Every single person can have an impact in terms of accelerating cures for cancer. If every single person with a smartphone downloads this game and plays it for two minutes it could have a mind-blowing impact on accelerating research." But, how reliable is the game? Can you trust an app to combat breast cancer?

Would you benefit from an app that helps you determine times your family should be using their devices and times they shouldn't?

i am working on a student project that helps families select periods during the week in which they would prefer not to be using their devices, for example after certain hours or during mealtimes etc. The application would come with a small 'owl' device that sits in the home and 'watches over' your digital time, reflecting when you are interacting appropriately with your device through mood by tilting forward or backwards to show happy and sad and by rocking back and forth when people are using their devices beyond their desired time frames. The idea is that it is a physical presence pulling a persons focus visually from a device in the room to remind the families especially children when they are spending too much time on their devices. The app would allow people to rate their satisfaction with their tech usage and compare it to previous months. Would anyone in particular families find value in this kind of App and product?

Do teenagers buy diet pills online?

I'm worried about my 14-year-old. She's very focussed on diet and body image at the moment and has received a few parcels recently (she can order online as she has a pre-paid card for her allowance). I don't want to assume the worst, but she wouldn't tell me what was in the parcels, wouldn't open them in front of me. It could be Christmas presents, but this started a few weeks ago and it just struck me that this could be diet pills.
