Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in Western men, with 1.3 million new cases being diagnosed each year worldwide. It is currently detected using a blood test that measures PSA levels. Although it provides early diagnosis, the PSA blood test has a low specificity (high false positives) with about 75 per cent of all PSA positive results ending up with negative biopsies that do not find cancer. <small>([https://www.qmul.ac.uk/media/news/2019/smd/new-blood-test-for-prostate-cancer-is-highly-accurate-and-avoids-invasive-biopsies.html More])</small>

Japanese startup SkyDrive completes first manned flying car test
SkyDrive Inc., a world-leading developer of urban air mobility solutions, is proud to announce that it conducted a public demonstration flight of its new SD-03 flying car model. It was the first public demonstration of a flying car in Japan. The flight took place at the 10,000-square-meter (approximately 2.5-acre) Toyota Test Field, which is one of the largest test fields in Japan and home to the company’s development base.

The single-seat SD-03 took off in the early evening and circled the field for about four minutes. A pilot was at the controls but a computer-assisted control system helped ensure flight stability and safety while technical staff at the field monitored flight conditions and aircraft performance at all times as backup.

The aircraft has been designed to be the world’s smallest electric Vertical Take-Off and Landing (eVTOL) model as a new means of transportation for the near future. (More)
