|ArtSea Ink: A colorful, seaweed-based ink for 3D printing|
Added: 04.08.2021 23:18 | 15 views | 0 comments
Some artists are embracing 3D printing as a new medium, allowing them to create intricate 3D compositions that are difficult to produce in any other way. But the rigid, plastic-based materials used in many 3D printers require high heat for workability. Now, researchers reporting in ACS Omega have developed a colorful new ink for 2D and 3D art made of mica pigments in alginate, a sugar from seaweed that forms a stable gel without heat.
|Dissolvable smartwatch makes for easier electronics recycling|

Small electronics, including smartwatches and fitness trackers, aren't easily dismantled and recycled. So when a new model comes out, most users send the old devices into hazardous waste streams. To simplify small electronics recycling, researchers have developed a two-metal nanocomposite for circuits that disintegrates when submerged in water. They demonstrated the circuits in a prototype transient device -- a functional smartwatch that dissolved within 40 hours.
|Toward a COVID-19 breathalyzer for kids|

Adults infected with SARS-CoV-2 exhale different metabolites in their breath than uninfected people. Now, researchers have shown that children infected with SARS-CoV-2 also show breath metabolite changes, but they're largely different from the ones in adults. Someday, this information could be used to quickly and easily screen children for infection, the researchers say.
|High-dose gait training with robotic exoskeleton may improve function after acute stroke|

Researchers have developed a molecule that fluoresces where new tissue is forming in the body. Alongside helping to detect tumors, the molecule could play a significant role in research of wound healing disorders.
|Researchers develop coating for endotracheal tubes that releases antimicrobial peptides|
Added: 04.08.2021 22:18 | 15 views | 0 comments
In a proof-of-concept study, researchers have created a coating that can be applied to endotracheal tubes and release antimicrobial peptides that target infectious bacteria with specificity. The innovation could reduce upper-airway bacterial inflammation during intubation, a situation that can lead to chronic inflammation and a condition called subglottic stenosis, the narrowing of the airway by an accumulation of scar tissue.

“I don’t know that as a woman alone in a park that I had another option," Amy Cooper said in a recent interview about the May 25, 2020, encounter with Christian Cooper.
|Fine particulate air pollution associated with higher risk of dementia|

Using data from two large, long-running study projects in the Puget Sound region -- one that began in the late 1970s measuring air pollution and another on risk factors for dementia that began in 1994 -- researchers identified a link between air pollution and dementia.
|Randi Weingarten asks MSNBC's Ruhle not to 'roll' her eyes about NY teacher vaccinations|

American Federation of Teachers President Randi Weingarten had a curt exchange with MSNBC's Stephanie Ruhle on Wednesday after the host asked why some New York City teachers oppose mandatory vaccinations.
|How landscapes of fear affect the songbirds in our backyards|
