Daily Links 4/6

1) My G-Cups Can't Handle G-Force [The Sun UK]

"The former Celebrity Big Brother winner refused to try out a "terrifying" new ride at Thorpe Park because she was concerned it might damage her breast implants.

The coaster hits between 4.0 to 4.7 Gs a total of six times throughout the 100-second ride giving passengers "a more extreme G-force experience than a space shuttle rocket launch".

My belief is that this would have been safe. I wonder if any astronauts have implants?

2) Laser Medicine and Surgery meeting features emerging applications [Press Release]

"Laser medicine experts from around the world are gathering this week and through the weekend in National Harbor, Maryland at the Annual Scientific Conference of the American Society for Laser Medicine and Surgery (ASLMS). Nearly 1500 laser specialists in aesthetic surgery, otolaryngology, ophthalmology, oncology, dermatology, photobiomodulation, and urology are attending, and about 130 industry exhibitors are showcasing their latest products."
Dr. Goldberg is the former president of the ASLMS and taught a course on laser hair removal there (after all, he literally wrote the book on laser hair removal).

We also presented some of our data on fractional laser skin resurfacing with a Sciton laser. We will post some slides later on.
