The Social Rewind for July 20, 2015

Are you subscribed to multiple social media networks like we are? Do you find it difficult it to keep up with all of the updates from the people you follow? Do you feel like you’re missing a lot of good information?

“The Social Rewind,” is a weekly compilation of what we thought were the most interesting, funny, or informational social media posts of the previous week. Q Source follows a variety of really fascinating companies and individuals on Twitter, Facebook & Google+ and we want to share the best of what they have to say.

Leading off this week’s column: If a machine replaced your doctor, how would you feel? This Fashion Seal HC post asked if technological advances are taking away the human factor in healthcare.

In case you were wondering, Weller’s post explains the differences between welding, brazing, and soldering.

Did you know that kilogram scales are calibrated against a 125-year-old piece of metal kept in a Paris vault? NIST’s post looks at efforts to redefine the kilogram.

What does it mean to redefine the kilogram? Find out on today's broadcast of Science Friday, featuring NIST's Jon Pratt.
