Concrete that bends

Concrete is a brittle material. Placed under stress, it cannot bend very far before it fractures. Some pavements and roads that are being poured now will crack within a few years and require expensive repairs. It is now possible to make concrete bendable without fracturing. Bendable concrete makes infrastructure safer, extends its life and reduces maintenance costs. It’s called engineered cementitious composite (ECC). http://www.inkl.com/newsletters/morning-edition/news/bendable-concrete-with-a-design-inspired-by-seashells-can-make-us-infrastructure-safer-and-more-durable?

Your driver’s license on your phone

Having a driver’s license on your phone is part of the digital transformation where everything is available electronically and on your phone. It’s a digital, secured rendering of your driver’s license that is dynamically connected back to the system of record. It will mean less tension in approaches to your vehicle because identities will be known. Iowa is the first U.S. state that will offer digital driver’s licenses following pilot testing. https://spectrum.ieee.org/the-human-os/biomedical/devices/qa-digital-drivers-licenses-go-digital

A new system to analyse gold

Since the middle ages the fire assay has been the gold standard in gold analysis. However a new system has been developed by the CSIRO using powerful x-rays to bombard rock samples and activate atoms of gold – and other metals – giving off unique atomic signatures which are detected by a highly sensitive detector. It dramatically reduces the turnaround time on assays from days to minutes, providing critical data to miners on gold grades in near real-time to support operational decisions.. While this new system is currently calibrated to evaluate gold, it can also be applied to a range of other minerals, including silver and copper. https://blog.csiro.au/first-photon-assay-installation/

Restaurants become retailers

Pondicheri, an Indian restaurant in Houston, with a branch in New York, is an example of a restaurant becoming retail. When it opened seven years ago, it sold only two products. Now it offers more than 70 products, from spices — the best-seller — to prepared food kits, pickles, chutneys, frozen sauces and stocks, and oils. The owners recognise that younger customers want to cook and retail now makes up about 9 per cent of their sales. The trend follows the continued expansion of Eataly, which has successfully meshed the retail-restaurant experience. www.pondicheri.com/
