 Live long and recover:  Nichelle Nichols, 82, who played Lt. Uhura in the original Star Trek TV series and films, suffered a mild stroke Wednesday night.  “Currently she is awake, eating, in good spirits and able to have full conversations. Her right side has shown minor signs or mobility loss, but she is not showing any signs of paralysis.”  Interesting: Nichols was a TV rarity when “Star Trek” began in 1966: a black woman in a notable role on a prime-time series. There had been African-American women on TV before, but they often played maids or domestics.  The Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. called it “the first non-stereotypical role portrayed by a black woman in television history.”   http://goo.gl/bXb5jB

SensorWake is a new alarm clock which wakes you up with familiar scents that are delicious, delightful and motivating.
There’s the “Continental breakfast,” which smells like an espresso and hot croissant, the “Candy Rush” (peach and strawberry), seaside, fresh cut grass and leaves, chocolate and even money — yes, the smell of cold hard cash.
Each aroma is contained in a rectangular, 100% recyclable pod and lasts 60 uses.. There is no snooze button, just a button to turn the diffuser off. http://www.abc57.com/story/29199119/an-alarm-clock-that-wakes-you-up-with-scents
