Australian Researchers Have Developed “Solar Paint”

 

capri10_001

Imagine a house paint that not only makes a home look pleasing to the eye, but also supplies all of your home’s energy needs. Researchers in Australia have come up with a “solar paint” capable of absorbing moisture from the air and turning it into hydrogen fuel for clean energy.

Based at RMIT University in Melbourne, southern Australia, the research team has developed “solar paint”, containing a newly developed compound that acts like silica gel — that’s the stuff used in those little sachets that absorb moisture to keep things like food, medicines, and electronics in good shape.  Besides damp climates, the solar paint will also be effective in, for example, hot and dry climates near oceans, with the absorbed vapor coming from the nearby sea water as it evaporates in the heat.

A Wearable To Detect Germs & Viruses?

Rutgers engineers have invented biosensor technology – aka lab on a chip – that could be used in hand-held or wearable devices to monitor your health and exposure to dangerous bacteria, viruses and pollutants.
Electronic detection of microparticles allows for ultra-compact instruments needed for wearable devices. The Rutgers researchers’ technique for barcoding particles is, for the first time, fully electronic. That allows biosensors to be shrunken to the size of a wearable band or a micro-chip, the study says.

The technology is over 95 percent accurate in identifying biomarkers and fine-tuning is underway to make it 100 percent accurate. The team is also working on portable detection of microrganisms, including disease-causing bacteria and viruses. Should be available in about two years.

 

Warning! Gene Editing Technology & It’s Danger

CRISPR gene-editing technology has been the new rave in the medical world. Showing potential for treating diseases ranging from cancerto type 2 diabetes,  the technology has been moving full-steam ahead, with a trial in humans already started, even as the repercussions of gene editing remain largely unknown.

A recent study has highlighted the uncertainties, showing that unintended mutations may result when you dice and splice the human genome, they it’s too ealy to say whether the mutations are a cause for alarm.

Google Hire allows employers post job listings, then accept and manage applications, according to job listing links spotted by Axios reader Colin Heilbut. So far, several tech companies seem to be using (or testing) Google Hire, including Medisas, Poynt, DramaFever, SingleHop, and CoreOS. Google has assured, that “Only information that a candidate voluntarily provides would be passed to a prospective employer as part of their online application.”

 

 

Ageing Seen As Positive

Dr Paul Ong, Technical Officer, Innovation for Healthy Ageing at the World Health Organization, says “ageing, on the whole, is “a good thing” for the world, and governments should not see it as a “threat”.  He says,  being old is, in fact, a sign of “successful development,” he says. “It means that a majority of people are now living to a much older age.”

On Being Black in the White-Dominated Weed Business

Medical marijuana is currently legal in roughly 28 states (and Washington, D.C.), and recreational use is now legal in eight states—there’s been a wave of entrepreneurs sparking up new streams of income in the marijuana business. But it’s mostly whites who are making a profit from this “green rush.”Outside of the celebrity-endorsed bud brands, there are just a handful of everyday black folk who have been successful in opening up a cannabis company of their own or attaining leadership positions for existing weed businesses.
