All of the things that Oncotarget has done have enabled specialists to learn more about their practice and about how treatment can be effective for many different purposes. Oncotarget has even shown oncologists how they will be able to make things better using different methods.

In the beginning, only oncologists were able to do different things with it and they were the only ones who could add research to the things that were going on with the publication. All of that changed when Mikhail Blagosklonny realized that Oncotarget would make more sense with the people who were in other areas of medicine and who had chosen to specialize in the things that they would be able to do for each other. He knew that having these specialists could make everything better and could bring more attention onto Oncotarget so that people could try new things.

Todd Lubar Describes The Benefits That Smart Home Technology Can Provide

Smart homes now make up a significant part of the real estate sales market. Furthermore, they are only expected to grow in the near future. A projection published by TechSci Research expects smart home sales to reach more than $60 billion within the next five years. By that point, smart homes will increasingly become the norm instead of an exception or luxury feature.

Todd Lubar says that one Seattle based development company is offering technology packages to home buyers. This package will include features such as smart thermostats, motion detector doorbells and smart lighting systems. Additional features that can be purchased from the developer will include smart shades and audio systems throughout the home.

Mr. Lubar says that smart home technology can be especially useful to the elderly and disabled. Those with limited mobility for example can maintain a level of independence that would be impossible without smart home features. There has been a recent NBC News story that showed a paralyzed man who was able to live at home by himself thanks to smart home technology. Smart home technology let him pull up and down shades, turn on and off the lights and even open and close doors. With new advances in smart home technology, he can now do even more with voice commands.

The NBC news story shows just how useful and helpful smart home technology can be to the elderly and disabled. The elderly can benefit from motion sensing and impact detecting floors and walls that can alert emergency personnel and family if somebody has fallen in the home. There has even been a smart toilet developed that can collect and analyze urine and feces. Such a technology can cut down on laboratory medical visits and save people and doctors money. Check out Crunchbase to know more.

Todd Lubar says that what was first developed as a luxury, is now becoming more commonplace thanks to lower prices. It is also fascinating to watch smart technology develop as a safety and convenience feature to the disabled and elderly.

Mr. Lubar has worked a mortgage loan originator and property developer before settling down and becoming a business investor through TDL Ventures. His alma matter is Syracuse University where he completed a communications study program. You can connect and follow Mr. Lubar on Facebook and Twitter.
