We Americans tend to take our banking system for granted and, even after the 2008 mess, we focus on the relatively minor injustices and inconsistencies this system engenders. But overseas, chaos reigns. A while back I was in theAzores. The Azores are a group of small islands 900 miles west of – and owned by ?Portugal. Finding that I was soon to spend a few days in the Canary Islands, which are owned bySpain, I rode downtown to exchange some dollars for pesetas. At the Commercial Bank of theAzoresI was told that, yes, I could exchange dollars for pesetas, but the only denomination of peseta on hand was the P 5,000 note. Wishing smaller bills, I went down the street to another bank.

But now parents whose babies are patients in the UMass Memorial Medical Center's Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) in Worcester have another way to stay in touch when they can's be there in person ?a special web camera that allows them to see their child via real-time video.
