Huygens (1629–1695), in his Treatise on Light (1690), explained the double refraction of calcite on the correct hypothesis that the secondary waves for the... continue reading
In recent years there has been much work on the possibility that carbon could be sequestered in phytoliths and contribute to solving global warming.1,... continue reading
A large scale facility can be described as an object producing, as an output, datasets
D_i, that scientists analyse to obtain results
R_i. The ideal data analysis trajectory for an experiment is thus
P_i denotes the... continue reading
The higher cost and lower availability of the thermoplastic filaments -compared to pellets- make FDM 3D printers underutilized in developing countries.
We designed a solution to use easily sourced plastic pellets with precise volumetric control... continue reading
The Dawn Phenomenon (DP) was first noted in diabetics as an unexpected increase in blood glucose beginning during sleep early in the morning1. The glucose is derived from increased hepatic... continue reading
Handgrip strength (HGS) is a significant predictor of health and vitality in both men and women, with higher HGS being associated with lower rates of disability, morbidity, mortality, and even dementia... continue reading
Open wound heals faster as they not let anaerobes grow faster in the wound but on the other side open wounds increase risk of infection. Bandage protects from infection but there is low aeration thus delaying healing. Biofilms have tendency to... continue reading
