The call comes through. A young female has collapsed in the street outside a nightclub.
The paramedic is dispatched to the scene, parks his ambulance and starts to assess the situation.
The young woman appears drunk and is singing in a slurred way, but after an examination and blood and glucose tests the paramedic discovers she is also diabetic and in need of immediate treatment.
It's a testing scenario for a student paramedic, and one where there is the potential to make some dangerous errors.
Interesting scenario. You can read the whole article here.

after 20 months, we are now starting... with about 34 firms we are about to start Metaverse1. More later...
1. Virtual worlds will be very big -- (metaverse is a technical term that means exactly the same).
2. But... to fulfill the potential we need "standards" -- to allow innovation.
3. So we want to do standards. How?
3.1. We have identified several use cases (what virtual worlds can do)
3.2 We will do a review of what standards are out there.
3.3 We will develop a framework system for the virtual worlds.
3.4 It will include a reference for the standards out there, as well as what is missing.
4. We will implement the case studies to test the standards.
5. The standards will be streamed into the work of ISO MPEG-V.
