Hey everybody! I'm glad to be back visiting with you on a daily basis. If you've ever listened to Mid Ohio's Country WNCO, then we're probably already friends. If not , let me introduce myself. I'm Matt Appleby, a Lexington native and Ashland High School graduate who's been on the air in mid Ohio since the winter of 1980. And yes that is my real name (who'd make that up?) My wife Kelly and I make our home in Mansfield and our daughter Sara is out on her own working as a case manager RN for a home health care agency. And while this is my first opportunity to DJ on Y105, I have been a fan of this station for a long time and I love the music. I'd be glad to have you as a Facebook friend, too. Thanks for tuning in weeknights on Y105!
A grad student at MIT has developed a digital ice cube that warns people before they black out from booze. Dhairya Dand invented the digital ice cubes after blacking out himself and designed them to measure how drunk he was to avoid a similar situation in the future. The cubes are made from gelatin and implanted with infrared transmitters. They change color from green to yellow to red, depending on how quickly you’re chugging the booze and how much you’ve had. If you continue to drink despite the red light, the digital ice cube actually sends a text message to your friends saying you should be taken home. (DigitalSpy.com)
