A Glimpse Into The Bizarre And Untouched Ecosystem Beneath Antarctica

There are many species that exist in the world. We see it in the diversity among the numerous environments we explore, from deserts to icy tundras. We know that there were many species that have gone extinct throughout the history […]

Google’s New Earbuds Auto-Translate 40 Languages Thanks to Machine Learning

, viVery often it is only a matter of time before something in science-fiction becomes science-fact. This past week tech giant Google held an event in San Francisco where it unveiled products like the Google Home Mini, a new Chromebook, […]

How X-Ray Fluorescence Methods Reveal Past Climate Changes

Geology tries to understand the past by looking at the contemporary world. There is the famous phrase of uniformitarianism “Present is the key to the past”, which can be understood as the “laws” of nature have acted more or less […]

Characterizing The Preferred Mass Range For Primordial Black Holes & Dark Matter

The 2017 Nobel prize in physics has been awarded to Kip Thorne, Rainer Weiss, and Barry Barish, “for decisive contributions to the LIGO detector and the observation of gravitational waves”.  The LIGO discovery has ushered in a new era of […]

Hybrid Materials As Potential NIR Absorbers For Organic Electronics

Modern society is largely a plastic-based culture in which organic (carbon-based) plastics have become more ubiquitous than other common materials such as metals, glass, or ceramics. As a result, some have postulated that there is sufficient justification to refer to […]

Comparison Of Dietary Fibre Composition Of Old & Modern Durum Wheat Genotypes

As the dominant staple crop in temperate regions of the world, wheat provides between 20% to 50% of the total intake of calories in our diets. Most of the global wheat crop is bread wheat, but durum wheat is grown […]

Using Remote Sensing To Measure Crop Growth And Management

In most East and Southeast Asia countries, mosaic crop production systems usually consist of relatively small land holdings ( < 2 ha), which are managed by individual farmers/families (Fig. 1). Diverse field water and nutrient management practices exist among spatially […]

Resource Supply Chains Under Threat From Climate Change

The human race relies heavily on what the earth has to offer: minerals from underground, food from land and sea. We know how important these resources are for us, but what we don’t often think about it how important it […]

Avalanche Destruction Zone & Its Impact On Old Growth Forests

Mountains are exposed to mass movements such as landslides, debris flows, and snow avalanches. These hazards affect valley slopes and endanger human settlements. They may cause severe damage to infrastructures, transportation roads and sometimes human death. Over the last century, […]

Scientists Develop Squirtable Glue That Seals Wounds In Seconds

Most wounds that require surgeries are done with stitches or staples employed to hold the wound shut. However, two new medical technologies have developed techniques to heal wounds without the use of either staples or sutures. A new medical device […]
