A new way to turn sunlight into fuel

Researchers from St. John’s College, University of Cambridge, have discovered a new way to utilize energy from the sun and turn it into fuel that could directly compete with fossil fuels. The researchers used semi-artificial photosynthesis to explore new ways to produce and store solar energy. They used natural sunlight to separate hydrogen and oxygen. This research could revolutionize the way we are currently utilizing the sun for renewable energy production. Their method was able to absorb even more solar light than the natural process of photosynthesis. https://www.collective-evolution.com/2018/09/12/scientists-discover-a-new-efficient-way-to-turn-sunlight-into-fuel/

The right trousers

Robo-trousers that help people stand up, walk upstairs and get out and about are being designed by British scientists in a government-funded scheme to help the elderly and disabled stay mobile. The University of Bristol is developing “smart trousers” with artificial muscles which give frail people bionic strength so they can live independently for longer. The muscles are air-filled bubbles of plastic that can raise a leg from a seated to a standing position. The project has been dubbed “The Right Trousers” in reference to The Wrong Trousers, the Wallace and Gromit animation in which Wallace constructs a pair of calamitous cyber slacks. https://www.theguardian.com/technology/2018/sep/11/the-right-trousers-wallace-and-gromit-mobility-aid-robotic

Restoring a tennis court to improve diplomacy

The Australian ambassador’s residence in Washington – known as White Oaks – is a Heritage-listed brick mansion built in 1923. It was once the home of George Patton, one of the most significant and controversial military figures in US history. It has a lawn tennis court that had fallen into disrepair. Joe Hockey, Australia’s ambassador to the US, thought this was a waste, since it’s the only lawn tennis court in Washington, and one of only a handful in the US north-east, so had it restored with the help of Westfield CEO Peter Lowy. Playing on grass is a dream of many tennis lovers and senior members of congress, military leaders and foreign diplomats have all played on the court over the past year. https://www.smh.com.au/world/north-america/how-australia-s-diplomatic-secret-weapon-was-almost-turned-into-a-vegetable-patch-20180914-p503o1.html
