Batteries that last indefinitely to track wildlife

z9p8d7n6-1499916872

Self-sustaining batteries are needed for activities that use sensors. These include long-term tracking of wildlife.  CSIRO software aims to help devices operate in an energy-neutral way, so that the battery can last indefinitely or until its recharge cycles are exhausted. An example is a device attached to animals using collars that collects GPS data to understand their movements. It also has a tiny battery and solar panel to recharge each day. https://blog.csiro.au/make-batteries-last-almost-forever/

A 10 sec check for cancer

IMG_2288

Scientists from the University of Texas at Austin have developed a pen called the “MacSpec pen” that can screen and analyze tissue samples for cancer in just 10 seconds when the process usually takes weeks. The pen, which looks like a white permanent marker with a cord down its back, is made with a 3D-printed surgical-ready plastic tip and uses water instead of gases and other harming solvents. The tool works by releasing a small water droplet onto a tissue sample and sucking the water, with some residual tissue, into a mass spectrometer to analyze the tissue samples in real time. With 93 percent accuracy, the researchers identified lung, ovary, thyroid and breast cancers using both mice and human tissue samples. https://www.google.com.au/amp/newatlas.com/macspec-pen-cancer-healthy-tissue/51238/%3famp=true

Really Well Designed Water Refill Station

Water Refill Stations

OK, most of us have seen something like this before – but what made me really wag my tail about this one is that it is multi-functional, serving as a bubbler, bottle refill station and dog bowl at the base; has a simple, robust construction; and it is *wheelchair accessible* http://www.bmcc.nsw.gov.au/yourcouncil/mediareleases/counciltotrialwaterrefillstations

The world’s largest floating solar power plant

IMG_2340

It wasn’t too long ago that China had a reputation as a coal-guzzling, smog-blanketed polluter. But that is changing – and fast. Today, China invests more each year in wind, hydro and solar power than any other country on earth. It recently further underlined its role as the global leader in renewable energy by switching on the world’s largest floating solar power plant. https://www.google.com.au/amp/amp.weforum.org/agenda/2017/06/china-worlds-largest-floating-solar-power

Quitting coal presented an an opportunity to transform society for the better

IMG_2350

Imagine, for a moment, that climate change was not synonymous with doomsday scenarios, but rather presented an opportunity to radically transform society for the better. Dr Jonathan Patz will be speaking at the 29th Annual Scientific Conference of the International Society of Environmental Epidemiology, Sydney, Australia, from 24-28 September 2017. https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2017/sep/25/quitting-coal-a-health-benefit-equivalent-to-quitting-tobacco-alcohol-and-fast-food

A new way to diagnose and treat disease

IMG_2322

The effectiveness of smart pills, biosensors and drug-delivery systems depends on the surrounding tissue inside the body. To overcome this, researchers from Cal Tech have created a mini wireless chip that can vary its output frequency in relation to a local magnetic field, enabling a precise location to be determined. In addition to one day measuring factors such as pH, blood sugar, and temperature inside the body, developments like this should enable massive improvements in our ability to diagnose and treat disease as well as possibilities for life extension. http://www.kurzweilai.net/miniature-mri-simulator-chip-could-help-diagnose-and-treat-diseases-in-the-body-at-sub-millimeter-precision?

Goats restore park

IMG_2321

When trees fall, invasive weeds grow quickly and suffocate native flora, hindering restoration efforts. They also prevent migrant songbirds from nesting in the forest. Brooklyn’s Prospect Park was battered with tropical-storm-force winds in 2012 damaging or felling more than 500 trees. Five years later, that forest is fast on its way to recovery–and most of the credit goes to teams of goats who’ve been tasked with restoring the park’s fragile ecosystem. https://www.fastcompany.com/40468479/these-goats-arent-just-cute-theyre-also-helping-to-restore-brooklyns-last-natural-forest?
