The Refugee Crisis
As hundreds of thousands of people flee violence in Syria, governments in Europe and the U.S. are grappling with how to resettle them. Many Syrians are seeking refuge in Europe, and President Obama has pledged that the U.S will accept at least 10,000 Syrian refugees this fiscal year.

Global Internet Access
As more of the world's population gains access to the Internet increasingly through inexpensive mobile devices rather than desktop computers tech companies are exploring how best to serve (and exploit) a new customer base in developing nations. Facebook and Google are each working on projects to increase global Internet access, and Chinese electronics firm Xiaomi is bringing its cheap mobile devices into India, which will soon pass the  US to become the world's second-largest Smartphone market.

Stefanie Puthnam's spoon test
Stefanie Putnam, 32, beams with joy as she takes a bite of rice at Verily's office cafeteria in South San Francisco. She's here to show off a new spoon that, developed by the research company with her input, can help people with movement disorders eat independently for the first time. In 2009, Putnam was in a swimming accident that left her paralyzed from her shoulders down to her hands. But it did make some everyday tasks challenging.

Regulating Drones and Self- Driving Cars
In December, the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration announced that all drone owners even hobbyists must register with the FAA by February or face steep fines. While the FAA waited until drones were already mainstream to step up regulation, the Department of Transportation is taking a more proactive approach to another emerging technology self-driving cars. U.S. transportation secretary Anthony Foxx has promised imminent changes to the nation's policy on autonomous cars.
