3D printing helps blind chemists to visualize the data

A group of US chemists converted scientific charts and graphics into tactile materials. This could aid low-vision students and scientists. The team lead by Baylor University biochemist Bryan Shaw used 3D printing to turn scientific images into thin 3D constructs called lithophanes. Shaw’s endeavour began as a personal outreach effort. My baby was born with eye tumours, so I became a doctor. Despite losing an eye and having tumours in

A total $30 billion will be spent on building chip factories in Arizona by Intel and Brookfield.

On Tuesday, Intel Corp and Canadian investment firm Brookfield Asset Management announced a $30 billion combined funding commitment for Intel’s cutting-edge chip facilities in Arizona. This month, President Biden gave his signature to the CHIPS and Science Act, which allocates $52.7 billion in subsidies for the production and research of semiconductors in the United States. The infrastructure unit of Brookfield will invest up to $15 billion into the expansion project

semiconductor Components Market

Semiconductor Components Market Size According to the study, the Indian semiconductor components market was valued $119 billion in 2021 and is predicted to expand at a CAGR of 19% between the forecast years 2021 and 2026. ‘Make in India’ and production-linked incentive (PLI) initiatives would promote local sourcing of semi-components, driving the Indian semiconductor component market to $300 billion in cumulative revenues by 2026, according to a new analysis. Semiconductor

The number of people crossing the border illegally drops somewhat in July but remains high overall

On Monday, government officials reported that the number of migrants apprehended at the U.S.-Mexico border had decreased again in July compared to the previous month. Title 42, a law enacted during the pandemic that restricts the ability of migrants to claim asylum on the grounds of stopping the spread of COVID-19, has not stopped the exceptionally high flows, especially among nations less affected by the legislation. Theoretically, all nationalities are

Cedar Point, Knott's Berry Farm to remodel in 2023

For all you adrenaline junkies out there, Cedar Point is introducing a new roller coaster, and that’s not all. In 2019, the Wild Mouse will make its debut at the Ohio theme park’s newest themed area, The Boardwalk. The new roller coaster will be Cedar Point’s 18th and will be themed after the classic Wild Mouse coaster from the 1950s and 1960s. As in the original Wild Mouse, current Wild

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

Ancestor looked like a fat reptile with a little head and lived like a hippo

According to fossils recently found in France, a pre-dinosaur species resembled a rotund lizard with a small head and a semiaquatic existence. The amphibian represents a previously unknown genus and species of mammalian ancestor, researchers stated in October’s Palaeo Vertebrata. Lalieudorhynchus gandi lived 265 million years ago on Pangaea, before dinosaurs. Fossils of the strange species were initially discovered in 2001 in the Lodève Basin in southern France by research

Chinese research will bounce signals off asteroids to assess their threat

A constellation of more than 20 massive radar antennas will be used to gather data on potential rock-borne threats. An array of more than 20 massive radar antennae has begun construction at a renowned Chinese university to track asteroids that could be damaging to Earth. It’s called China Fuyan (or “composite eye”), and the Beijing Institute of Technology is leading it. Asteroids within 93 million miles (150 million kilometres) of

Electrophysiology Definition and Market Analysis

EP studies, also known as invasive cardiac electrophysiology, are a series of examinations of the electrical activity of the heart. The heart’s electrical system generates impulses (signals) that control the heartbeat’s rhythm. An electrocardiogram (EP) allows cardiologists to get a clear picture of how the electrical signals in the heart move from one beat to the next. Electrophysiology (EP) studies are useful in determining the cause of irregular heartbeats (arrhythmias).
