Hi! I'm Dane Carlson, and welcome to the Business Opportunities Weblog. I've been publishing this website, by myself, and sometimes with the help of others for over twelve years now. You'll notice two things about this site right away:

  • We have tons of content. In fact, since November 2011, I've published more than 26,000 posts on thousands of different business ideas and opportunities.
  • We don't sell much advertising. In late 2013, I realized that by selling advertising, what I was really selling was my readers. In 2014, I've already radically cut down on the number of ads and will hopefully keep cutting.

A Maryland teen invented a dipstick-type sensor that tests blood or urine and detects pancreatic, ovarian and lung cancer. WBALTV has more:

North County High School freshman Jack Andraka won what is considered the Olympics of science fairs with a diagnostic breakthrough in cancer treatment. The Crownsville 15-year-old won a $75,000 grand prize in this year’s Intel International Science and Engineering Fair for his new way to test for early-stage pancreatic cancer.

Andraka said the inspiration came from an uncle who died of the disease. He said the idea came to him in biology class.

“That’s what’s really cool about science to me — you can affect other people’s lives. You can basically do anything with science,” the teen winner said.
