Hellooo again, shiny happy people!  Hope all of you are feeling awesome and
having fun in this annoying quarentine!  :D

I think this contest can be very interesting for some people here.  No, not
because of the prizes, but because they can help to save lives.

Please, help to avoid great losses for the humanity like this one...  :'(


Conway was simply amazing.  Please, honor all the people who changed this
world for better, with their knowledge, researching, and Science
discoveries in all areas.  Honor their lives and their deaths helping those
who are still here, those who can still be saved...  <3

Wish you all much love, inspiration, and good luck, my beloved ones!  <3

The COVID-19 Detect & Protect Challenge with Hackster

COVID-19 is an unprecedented global health and humanitarian emergency,
which threatens to create devastating social, economic, and political
crises. In some of the world's most vulnerable areas, the impact could be
catastrophic. This extraordinary situation demands innovation and ingenuity
from the best and brightest of humanity, wherever it may be found.

Today, the United Nations Development Programme is announcing the *COVID-19
Detect and Protect Challenge
in partnership with Hackster and some of the world's leading technology

We're calling on the community to support developing countries through the
sharing and transfer of open source technology. This challenge has three
priority actions:

   - Design replicable, low-cost tools and resources to aid viral detection
   - Flatten the curve in communities with preventive solutions
   - Reduce the disease's impact on the economies of these vulnerable areas

The 10 best entries will receive a $1,000 Visa gift card, an NXP HoverGames
drone and telemetry radio, and most importantly, a Global UNDP Innovator
Award badge and certificate.

you can with it, and make it the life you want to live."  -  Mae Jemison
