Market Value Of Cocoa Beans Can Be Regulated Using Biomarkers

According to a new study conducted bythe researchers at the University of Surrey, biotechnology is the missing factor that can help cocoafarmers get better cost prices for beans.These cocoa beans are widelyused in the production of candiesand different beverages. These beans are also known as energy boosters, astheycontain caffeine and an ample amount of carbohydrates. The taste of cocoa beans varies throughout the development phase. For example, duringthe juvenile phase of the plant, these be

Unique Ceramics Derived By Engineers Can Mend Visual Damages Automatically

Although ceramics are tough to damage through extreme heat, they are delicate and can be broken down easily.A team of researchers of Texas AM University hasdiscovered an exclusive ceramic that features an auto repairing property. The in-depth information about ceramics is available in an article recently published in the journalScience Advances. These engineered ceramics works by forming kinkbands,which not only prevent the cracks from rising but also coverthose nasty scratches. Ankit Srivas

Incidences Of Road Crash Rises After Cannabis Legalization

Cannabis, also known as marijuana, is a psychoactive drug that is being used for both recreational and medical purposes. However, in some states of the U.S., marijuana is being prescribed to combat a wide range of ailments such as glaucoma and poor appetite. The compounds present in the cannabis plant, particularly flowers, induce different short-term and long-term effects on the body depending on the amount consumed. Some of the short-term beneficial effects are relaxation, concentration, and

Installing Green Roofs At Commercial & Residential Sectors Will Be A Trend

People, who are particularly residing in the rural areas, are coping with the trend being followed in urban regions. The increasing demand for more space and other sophisticated facilities are the key reasons behind the expansion of the urban lifestyle. Have you ever wondered how a rooftop space can be effectively utilized? So far, the best approach seems to install photovoltaic panels on roofs, through which sustainable electricity can be generated. To introduce the concept of sustainable roo

New Urinary Biomarkers Can Determine The Presence Of Synthetic Cannabinoids

A group of scientists at the National University of Singapore(NUS) has recently developed a surveillance booster for the design of drug abuse. This research was led by Eric Chan from the NUS Department of Pharmacy. The team has accomplished success in developing three new urinary biomarkers that would help detect consumption of ADB-BUTINACA, a synthetically developed cannabinoidprescribed during emergencies. These new biomarkers have been developed in order todetermine the intakeof illicitdrug

VW & Argo AI To Release Their First ID Buzz Autonomous Vehicle

German automaker Volkswagen in collaboration with the US-based software firm Argo AI hasunveiled its plans to validate and commercialize the fully electric self-driving van they were building over the last four years. The testing of the prototype, which is among the first five planned cars, has begun in different traffic scenarios. Moreover, MOIAthe subsidiary of Volkswagen Group offering ride pooling servicesplans to commercialize the ID Buzz in Hamburg as a part of autonomous ride-sharing

Novel Energy-Efficient Model Freezes Food By Maintaining Quality & Safety

By incorporating the novel food freezing process with low energy consumption worldwide, almost 6.5 billion kWh of power could be saved each year. Moreover, nearly 4.6 Billion Kg of carbon emitted to generate that additional power could be avoided. Christina Bilbao SainzResearch Food Technologist at USDAexclaimed that the significant power saving could be accomplished byslightly modifying the existing frozen food manufacturing infrastructure and equipment. However, the condition is that food ma

A Robust Superconducting Magnet Invented To Obtain Clean Fusion Energy

A team of researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) has accomplished a breakthrough by working on a project for the last three years. The research project could open the path for developing a magnificent source of carbon-free energy. The team has developed the worlds strongest superconducting electromagnet that can generate a magnetic field of around twenty Tesla and can sustain the extreme level of temperature. This novel super magnet has dodged a significant obstruction

Actuators Based On ONST Technology Outperforms The Pre-existing Models

Electrochemical devices are extensively used in different sectors ranging from autofocus microlenses to soft robotics. A team of researchers at the University of Houston has accomplished success in developing the first electrochemical actuator that uses a specialized organic semiconductor known as (OSNTs) to convert electrical energy into mechanical energy. They mentioned that actuators are robots or bioelectronics that play a crucial role in the research and development sector. At present,
