Plastic Knowledge, a McGill spin-off company, has made the first flexible plastic display with the circuitry embedded in the screen itself. That means the computer and the screen are one and the same. And it's fully flexible. "We like to say we're breaking the glass ceiling on displays," said Mark Andrews, the firm's chief technology officer and a McGill scientist.
Antonia Maioni, director of the McGill Institute for the Study of Canada, writes in an op-ed in the Gazette: "The report of Claude Castonguay's working group on health-care financing was released last week to a great hue and cry across Quebec. In the rush to sink the report like a stone, we might be overlooking the fact that a good portion of it actually addresses the organizational aspects of the health-care system. Regardless of where they stand on the issue of health-care privatization, most Quebecers would agree that organizational reform is very much needed."
