The Kinsa Smart Thermometer

The Kinsa Smart Thermometer,

A Mommy Must-Have

New York, NY. April 2013: Imagine if you were able to evaluate what symptoms and illnesses were going around your child’s school, local park, favorite hot spot and neighborhood, similar to a weather map, and before any school nurse or pediatrician could share what they’re seeing. Very soon moms everywhere will be able to do just that.

The Kinsa Smart Thermometer, a smartphone-connected device designed specifically with moms in mind, will do much more than just take your child’s temperature.

The Kinsa Smart Thermometer is precise, inexpensive and easy to use. Plus it comes with a free mobile app that lets you stay connected to current health concerns in your area – in real-time.

Here is how it works:

The thin, flexible, and comfortable thermometer simply connects to any smart-phone, no batteries required.
An accurate temperature reading is revealed in seconds.
With a few taps, you can associate symptoms, save history and share them with private groups (like your your kids’ daycare class). It even allows you to schedule the next urgent care appointment at a facility close to home, or send photos to your doctor for an immediate response.
Parents also have the ability to create a private community and view the symptoms and illnesses going around that particular group.
The app features an illness forecast to help you understand how to plan around your child’s illness – when they will be contagious and when they will be better.
Ultimately, Kinsa has created the world’s first real-time health map, enabling society to track and stop the spread of illness.
The Kinsa Smart Thermometer will be available later this year. More about Kinsa’s work and the Kinsa Smart Thermometer can be found here: 3.5 minute video

Inder Singh, Kinsa’s founder and CEO, explains, “I am incredibly excited about what we are doing at Kinsa. By using mobile devices intelligently, we are creating simpler, smarter, connected devices that will be available at or below the current cost of these products and simultaneously provide far more value. The data that one person provides could be the key in detecting the spread of flu or any number of other worse contagious illnesses, and lead to interventions that save lives.”

Zucchini Crust Pizza Pie

Zucchini Crust Pizza Pie    








2 cups shredded zucchini

1 tsp salt

 cups shredded zucchini

1 egg, beaten

1 cup shredded mozzarella, divided

1/4 lb ground meat (beef, pork, turkey, chicken, or omit)

1 small onion, diced

1 cup tomato sauce

1 garlic clove, minced

1 Tbsp fresh (or 1 tsp dried) oregano

other pizza style toppings as desired

Preheat oven to 400 degrees and oil a pie pan with olive oil or cooking spray.

Mix the shredded zucchini with salt in a bowl and let stand for 15 minutes.

Dump the zucchini into a colander to drain liquid, then take paper towels and squeeze zucchini to absorb more of the liquid.

Put dried zucchini into a bowl and add the egg and 1/2 cup of the mozzarella cheese, mix well to combine.

Press the zucchini/mozzarella mixture into the pie pan, evenly pressing it on the bottom to form a ‘pizza crust.’

Bake in preheated oven for 15 to 20 minutes or until slightly browned and set up. The cheese and egg will bind the zucchini together. When baked, remove and let stand at room temperature; keep oven on.

Meanwhile, put the meat and onion in a skillet and brown meat.

Add the tomato sauce, garlic, and oregano and stir to combine; remove from heat.

Spoon the tomato mixture over the cooled zucchini crust and cover with the remaining 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese.  Add any other toppings you’d like at this point.

Put back in 400 degree oven for 15 to 20 minutes or until cheese is bubbly hot and slightly browned.

Remove and let stand at room temperature for 5 to 10 minutes before slicing to serve.

Will serve 4 to 6.
