Battery-less mosquito catcher bat

There are products like battery operated bats available in the market to kill mosquitoes and insects but there is no battery-less innovation. My invention is very simple and very effective in killing mosquitoes as there is no need for recharging the battery of this mosquito bat. Only a bat and adhesive tape are required to build it. It will work to by trapping and killing mosquitoes. Salient features: (1) there is no need for recharging it. (2) the adhesive tape can be removed and replaced after use. (3) it is a very low cost design so anyone can afford it very easily. (4) it is safe and light weight (5) it can be used many times.

Drugs that delay diabetes

Researchers have found that diabetes could be kept at bay in animals by clearing out defective insulin-producing cells. Drug development has previously been focused on preserving these “beta cells” by preventing the immune system wiping them out, but US researchers say their findings turn this on its head. Their data suggest the problem may not be an immune system gone awry. Instead, perhaps therapies should find a way to do the job the immune system is failing to do: clear the senescent cells early on. http://www.inkl.com/newsletters/morning-edition/news/paradigm-shift-in-type-1-diabetes-shows-new-drugs-which-could-delay-disease-s-emergence?

A new way to evaluate credit history

The fintech startup Petal, in conjunction with WebBank, is offering a credit card to the estimated 65 million people in the US who have insufficient credit history to qualify for a traditional credit card. Instead of relying on credit scores, Petal uses cashflow underwriting based on machine learning. It considers how much money consumers make, the bills they pay on a monthly basis, and trends in volatility in their income and expenses. www.americanbanker.com/news/petal-webbank-launch-card-for-credit-invisibles

The world’s largest offshore wind farm

The world’s largest offshore wind farm, the Hornsea Project One project located off the coast of the UK, is to start generating this month, helping to fill the gap left open by the UK’s failing nuclear industry. When the project reaches full operation in 2020, it is expected to generate enough power to supply the needs of well over 1 million UK homes. https://reneweconomy.com.au/worlds-largest-wind-farm-to-begin-production-this-week-in-uk-78677/

Museum tours for people who don’t like museums

Museum Hack is a startup built on a counterintuitive premise. It sells “museum tours for people who don’t like museums.” For one price, customers get museum admission, a several-hour tour, and in some cases, wine. Guides teach them about the displays but with a difference, such as a dive into the artist’s weird hobbies. Some tours are family-friendly while others are adults-only. Tours are available inside New York’s Museum of Natural History and the Art Institute of Chicago, among others. The founder’s view is  “Museums aren’t competing with other museums. They’re competing with Netflix, Facebook and iPhones.” https://museumhack.com/

A machine that extracts carbon from the atmosphere

Climeworks is a Swiss company whose goal is to make it possible to capture CO₂ from the air for below $100 per ton. They believe that by 2030 there will be a global average price on carbon in the range of $100 to $150 a ton. Currently only a few European countries have made progress in assessing a high price on carbon however Climeworks believe more countries will price carbon. Then a company that sells a product or uses a process that creates high emissions (an airline, for instance, or a steel maker) could be required to pay carbon-removal companies $100 per metric ton or more to offset their CO₂ output. Or a government might use carbon-tax proceeds to directly pay businesses to collect and bury CO₂. www.nytimes.com/2019/02/12/magazine/climeworks-business-climate-change.html

A new treatment that kills cancer in a few hours

This new type of super-precise radiotherapy promises to transform the way we treat certain types of lung cancer, after a Melbourne-led clinical trial revealed the treatment significantly improved survival chances. Stereotactic ablative body radiotherapy (SABR) uses thin beams of radiation to directly attack the tumour. It’s also cheaper than traditional radiotherapy. In this way, the tumour receives a very high dose of radiation and the surrounding tissues largely avoid it, minimising side effects. And patients only need to come to hospital three or four times, rather than regularly over the space of two months. https://www.smh.com.au/national/like-winning-lotto-the-treatment-that-kills-cancer-in-a-few-hours-20190212-p50xdo.html

A digital license for kids

Child psychologist Michael Carr-Gregg has written to the Australian Prime Minister recommending a digital license for school children to reduce online risks and tackle cyberbullying. A digital licence has already been developed by the Alannah and Madeline Foundation, which believes every child would benefit from it. The PM supports it saying “A digital license is important, in the same way that your kids get a pen license at school”. https://www.sbs.com.au/yourlanguage/korean/en/article/2019/01/29/pm-backs-digital-licence-school-kids

Using AI to prevent youth suicides

The Otsu school in Japan will feed  AI information from about 9,000 suspected bullying cases, reported by their elementary and junior high schools, between 2012 and 2018. This information will include details on the students involved — their ages, genders, absenteeism records, and academic achievements — as well as when and where any bullying incidents took place. Through an AI theoretical analysis of past data, they plan to properly respond to cases without just relying on teachers’ past experiences. The hope is that the AI will allow school officials to identify the bullying cases that are likely to escalate in seriousness so that they can intervene and diffuse situations before it’s too late. https://futurism.com/the-byte/school-bullying-artificial-intelligence
