Poland is looking into the 'ecological tragedy' of the fish deaths.

After a “ecological catastrophe,” in which 10 tonnes of dead fish were discovered in the Oder River, which forms part of Poland’s border with Germany, the country has sent in the military to clear up the mess. Due to unsubstantiated claims in German media, fishermen in the city of Zielona Gora, Western Poland, said on Friday that they were suspending fishing in the river. The cause of the fish kill

Surprise! A 2-foot-wide asteroid will hit Earth tonight

In the early morning hours of Thursday, an asteroid that is larger than two football fields will fly by the planet Earth (Aug. 4). At precisely 12:23 in the morning, the asteroid will go by (ET). Only a few days ago, on July 26, astronomers from NASA identified the asteroid that is now known as 2022 OE2. The meaty space rock is predicted to measure between 170 and 380 metres

Unusual childhood hepatitis cases may have a reason, according to new research.

A new idea explains unexplained cases of paediatric hepatitis of unknown aetiology, and it’s complex. Two new, undisclosed studies from the UK suggest that infants with hepatitis may have been co-infected with two viruses and had a genetic tendency to have an over-exuberant immune response when that happened.   The dominant hypothesis was that adenovirus 41, present in many sick youngsters, caused liver injury. Adenovirus 41 causes liver damage in

New '2D' materials have promising applications, say scientists

Since the first successful preparation of graphene by mechanical exfoliation from graphite crystals in 2004, 2D materials have attracted dramatic attention due to their extraordinary physical properties (ultralow weight, high Young’s modulus, and high strength) and electrical properties compared with conventional bulk materials. Graphene, with a Young’s modulus of 1 TPa, is the most researched 2D material. Studies suggest that graphene in polymer matrices can boost composites’ mechanical characteristics. Graphene’s

Researchers have demonstrated that a new fabric can convert human movement into electrical current

Scientists at Nanyang Technological University have invented a novel waterproof and stretchy fabric that transforms energy generated by bodily movement into electrical energy. Nanyang Technological University. Mechanical energy is converted to electrical energy by pressing or squashing a polymer component of the cloth. Flexible, robust, and waterproof properties are all provided by a base layer of spandex combined with a rubber-like substance. Proof-of-concept testing of the fabric in Advanced Materials

Comcast has postponed data limitations in the Northeastern United States for at least a year

Comcast has announced that it would not implement data limitations in the Northeast US until 2022, offering users in 12 states and a few other places a one-year respite from paying overage costs. A Comcast spokesman told Light Reading that the company has no immediate plans to adopt its data use plan in the Northeast areas until 2022. When questioned about plans for 2023 and beyond, Comcast verified this comment

Hackers might have taken control of millions of Android devices because of a critical issue.

Hackers might have taken control of millions of Android devices because of a critical issue. Researchers found a flaw in Qualcomm and MediaTek mobile chipsets that could have allowed hackers to take control of millions of Android devices. As the name suggests, this flaw was in Apple’s ALAC audio format, which was introduced in 2004 and is used to deliver lossless audio over the Internet. Open-source decoders used by Qualcomm

Rwanda's blood distribution has been changed by the use of drones

Six years ago, Rwanda was experiencing a shortage of blood. The little East African country has a population of more over 12 million people, and like individuals in other countries, they are occasionally involved in vehicle accidents. New moms experience hemorrhaging. Children who are anemic require transfusions as soon as possible. You have no way of knowing when an emergency may strike. They just happen to be there. The red

Scientists are developing a new neurostimulator that might revolutionise patient care.

Neurological diseases such as persistent depression, Parkinson’s, and other mental illnesses may now be treated at home following a collaboration between researchers at the University of Queensland. Using a remote care platform created by Queensland Brain Institute, Abbott Neuromodulation, and Neurosciences Queensland, patients may obtain therapy from anywhere in the globe. Lead researcher said patients no longer need to contact their doctor in person to change their gadgets because of
