How much effort do you put into conserving energy throughout your daily routine? Diligence in keeping

How much effort do you put into conserving energy throughout your daily routine? Diligence in keeping lights and appliances turned off are great steps, but those selfsame appliances likely still draw power when not in use. Seeing the potential to reduce energy wasted by TVs in standby mode, the [Electrical Energy Management Lab] team out of the University of Bristol have designed a television that uses no power in standby mode. The feat is accomplished through the use of a chip designed to activate at currents as low as 20 picoamps.  It, and a series of five photodiodes, is mounted in a receiver which attaches to the TV. The receiver picks up the slight infrared pulse from the remote, inducing a slight current in the receiving photodiodes, providing enough power to the chip which in turn flips the switch to turn on the TV. A filter prevents ambient light from activating the receiver, and while the display appears to take a few seconds longer to turn on than an unmodified TV, that seems a fair trade off if you aren’t turning it on and off every few minutes. While some might shy away from an external receiver, the small circuit could be handily integrated into future TVs. In an en...

(CNN) – On Sunday, CNN Digital released a special report called “Slavery’s Last Stronghold.” It focuses

(CNN) – On Sunday, CNN Digital released a special report called “Slavery’s Last Stronghold.” It focuses on current-day slavery in Mauritania, a West African country where an estimated 10% to 20% of people are enslaved. In 1981, Mauritania became the last country in the world to abolish slavery. It didn’t make owning a person a crime until 2007. Work on this story started 11 months ago, after we stumbled upon a few of those statistics. As part of  The CNN Freedom Project, a multi-year effort to report on modern slavery, we began talking with anti-slavery organizations and government workers who deal with Mauritania in hopes that we could get a sense of what life is like in this place where slavery is so shockingly common. Eventually we found SOS Slaves, an abolitionist group in Mauritania that was founded by a former slave owner and a man whose family was enslaved. Think about that for a second: A slave and a slave owner came together to start an organization that is now trying to liberate people in a place where slavery is arguably more intractable and more common than anywhere else on Earth. It’s such a powerful symbol of hope, cooperation a...

New York overwhelmed by coronavirus as U.S. death toll tops 1,000

NEW YORK — New York authorities mobilized to head off a potential public health disaster in the city Wednesday, with its emergence as the nation’s biggest coronavirus hot spot a warning flare — and perhaps a cautionary tale — for the rest of the country as U.S. deaths from the pandemic topped 1,000. A makeshift morgue was set up outside Bellevue Hospital, and the city’s police, their ranks dwindling as more fall ill, were told to patrol nearly empty streets to enforce social distancing. Public health officials hunted down beds and medical equipment and put out a call for more doctors and nurses for fear the number of sick will explode in a matter of weeks, overwhelming hospitals as has happened in Italy and Spain. Spanish lawmakers agreed to extending by two weeks a state of emergency that has allowed the government to maintain a national lockdown. In Washington, President Trump implored Congress to move on critical coronavirus aid without further delay. Senate leaders were trying to overcome late objections to a $2 trillion economic rescue package to ease the financial pain of the pandemic. Worldwide, the death toll climbed past 21,000, according to a running count kept by John...

Activated carbon or activated charcoal is one of the most widely used substances in the water

Activated carbon or activated charcoal is one of the most widely used substances in the water treatment industry, which is mostly produced in powder and granular forms. The main applications of activated carbon are separating the pigments, odors, tastes and chlorine from the water in the food and chemical industry, aquarium, domestic and industrial water treatment and in cleansing the skin and teeth. Activated carbon or charcoal is a type of crystalline absorbent material, which is made of charcoal and contains numerous pores in its structure. Activated carbon refers to a group of porous carbon materials which have a porous structure, high adsorption capacity, high surface reactivation capability and low cost compared to inorganic adsorbents such as Zeolite due to its remarkable interior surface area. In this regard, it is a very unique material. Their important applications are in the separation of odors, pigments, and unpleasant tastes from water in the domestic and industrial operations, solvent recycling, and air purification, especially in restaurants, food and chemical industries. Powdered activated carbon is less than 1 mm in size and has an average diameter between 0.15 ...

If the term “3D printed weather station” makes you think of a printed enclosure for off-the-shelf

If the term “3D printed weather station” makes you think of a printed enclosure for off-the-shelf sensors, don’t feel bad. We thought the same thing when we first read the message [Rob Ward] sent in about his latest project. Surely he couldn’t mean that he actually printed all the principal parts of a serious weather station setup, such as the wind vane, anemometer, or rain gauge? Except, on closer inspection, that’s exactly what he did. Every part of the weather station is designed in OpenSCAD, printed out, and infused with various vitamins to turn them into functional pieces of hardware. Interestingly enough, most of the magic is done with simple reed switches and magnets. For example, the wind vane uses eight reed switches and an embedded magnet to communicate the current wind direction to the Arduino Uno which handles the user interface. Wind speed, on the other hand, it done with a single reed switch as it just needs to count rotations to calculate speed. [Rob] did “cheat” by using an off-the-shelf barometric pressure sensor, but we’ll give him a pass for that one. Unless somebody wants to hit the tip line with a design for a printable barometer, we’ll consider this the hig...

Woman has no doubt Apple Watch saved her life | Daily Dot Com

Managing a household wasn’t easy for Anne Rowe, of Fairhope, when she found herself feeling tired all the time, and short of breath. “It had gotten to where I couldn’t walk completely throughout the house without having to stop to catch my breath,” Anne Rowe explained to FOX10 News. “It kept saying that I was in AFib and at first I didn’t really believe it but then I decided I would go to my doctor.” That it was her Apple Watch. The built-in ECG (electrocardiogram) reading her heart rhythm and detecting the problem in 30-seconds…just from the touch of her fingertip. An EKG by doctors confirming, she was indeed in AFib, or atrial fibrillation. Her heart rate…irregular…and blood-flow…poor. She later had open heart surgery to replace her mitral valve and is now recovering well with regular heart rhythm. And it’s all thanks in part to a Christmas gift from her husband. Atrial fibrillation (also called AFib or AF) is a quivering or irregular heartbeat (arrhythmia) that can lead to blood clots, stroke, heart failure and other heart-related complications. At least 2.7 million Americans are living with AFib. Alligat...

Asynt announces FroSyn, an innovative fluid-free cooling plate that enables rapid cooling of samples in vials

Asynt announces FroSyn, an innovative fluid-free cooling plate that enables rapid cooling of samples in vials or round-bottom flasks (up to 500 mL) to below -60 °C. Unlike dry ice cooling baths that require constant attention, the stable and controlled sub-ambient performance of the FroSyn means that even overnight reactions can be performed with complete confidence. Specialized insulation around the cooling probe and plate on the FroSyn improves performance, keeps the apparatus ice-free, and helps eliminate the possibility of operator cold burns during operation. Positioning of the FroSyn on top of a conventional magnetic stirrer plate allows for efficient sample mixing during cooled experiments. The use of either weights and seals for the flask inserts, or an inerting dome with the vial plates, prevents the formation of ice on the glassware. Other custom cooling accessories are also available to compliment different applications, for example, a 4-position holding module for battery research and development. The BRAND Insert 2in1 can be used as both a hanging insert and a standing insert in 2D and 3D cell culture. When used as a hanging insert, it fits nearly all standard multi...

But, on the other hand, the market is seeing increased saturation and competition which has led to a slowing rate of growth in brewery numbers. “Is the craft beer bubble about to burst? That was the refrain from many quarters in 2018 as the market became increasingly saturated and rising costs and a floundering economy put growing pressure on small brewers,” ​notes SIBA. “But the consumer love affair with craft beer appears to be far from over. Within the beer sector as a whole, craft remains on...
