Gareth writes: "The future is a scary place.
It's either a world of ruined cities, with people driving around the wasteland on an old washing machine mixed with a lawnmower and a V8 engine, headbanging away to powerful rock music, dressed in designer grunge gear, and ready to kill you over a can of baked beans. Or there's the future where everything is shiny, but the government is an evil dictatorship using human babies as money.
But there is one other type of future one full of surprises the one like that told in Fumiko!."

|Jimmy Kimmel Opens Up About His Son's Heart Operation|

Jimmy Kimmel's newborn son's operation on his heart was "the longest three hours" of his life.
The 48-year-old American television presenter announced his wife, Molly McNearney, gave birth to their child William on April 21, but the tiny tot had to undergo an invasive procedure within a matter of hours after he was born because he had "two defects in his heart", which left the parents fearing the worse.
Speaking openly about his brood on Monday's (05.01.17) episode of 'Jimmy Kimmel Live', the show's host - who also has daughters Katie, 25, Jane, two, and 23-year-old son Kevin - said: "On Monday morning, Dr. Vaughn Starnes opened his chest and fixed one of the two defects in his heart. He went in there with a scalpel and did some kind of magic that I couldn't even begin to explain.
"He opened the valve, and the operation was a success. It was the longest three hours of my life."
During the programme Jimmy thanked the Children's Hospital Los Angeles and the medical experts for taking care of his child.
William has since left the hospital to settle in at home with his family, and the funnyman has revealed his child is doing "great" following the operation and is doing "all the things" babies should do, including peeing on his mother.
He continued: "He's doing great. He's eating. He's sleeping. He peed on his mother today while she was changing his diaper. He's doing all the things that he's supposed to do."
Despite the initial complications, Jimmy has admitted he loves fatherhood and has credited it as "the best".
He said: "This is the best."
|UNICEF Warns That Global Infant Mortality Rates Are Still 'Alarmingly High'|

A new report from the United Nation's Children's Fund said that one million babies across the world live less than a day, along with several other revealing statistics that show how those deaths are often preventable and the result of complications that arise during labor, according to UN News Center. UNICEF released the report on Tuesday which said the risk of a newborn dying "enormously" depends on where the baby is born. Japan has one of the highest survival rates, where only one of every 1,200 babies dies within the first 28 days. Pakistan has one of the worst rates, where 46 of every 1,000 babies born die before the end of their first month. Eighty percent of newborn deaths are from...
|'Brain on a chip' reveals how the brain folds|

Our brains are wrinkled like walnuts by the time we are born. Babies born without these wrinkles -- called smooth brain syndrome -- suffer from severe developmental deficiencies and their life expectancy is markedly reduced. Now researchers have developed a method for growing tiny 'brains on chips' from human cells that enabled them to track the physical and biological mechanisms underlying the wrinkling process.
