CLSLabs-Liquid extends the minimal working example of self-driving laboratories to liquid handling and optical spectroscopy

Materials acceleration platforms have the potential to reduce the cost- and time-to-market of new materials from 20 million USD and 20 years to as little as 1 million USD and 1 year; however, the capital and expertise are often significant.... continue reading

Hypothesis: systemic low-grade tissue hypoxia as contributing causative mechanism for Long COVID

Silent hypoxia is one of the key clinical features of COVID-19 infection. Some of the hypothesized underlying causes of silent hypoxia, such as endothelial and micro-vascular dysfunction, and micro-clots inhibiting perfusion, would exert a... continue reading

Using Fig in China to Explore New Criteria to Grade Edible Landscape Plants

Conventional wisdom accepts that selecting a fruit tree for landscape involves very different priorities than for commercial farming, e.g. extended season instead of concentrated, lower sugar concentration in fruit instead of higher. However,... continue reading

Index of the Value of Labor over Capital (LoCI)

I present a simple index to gauge the relative valuation of labor over capital in a country (LoCI). This index should correlate positively with the wealth and HDI of the country, and negatively with the precariousness of life of basic service... continue reading

A sustainable strategy to promote ecological awareness and improve the well-being of university students by the beautification of green spaces.

Ecological awareness and respect for living organisms must be the main objectives of education. Universities have to promote the understanding of the impact of One Health (good health for people is not possible without good health for animals and... continue reading

A simple form of Rayleigh pitot tube formula

Rayleigh pitot tube formula is a very basic and commonly used formula in aerodynamics. It gives the rate of the total pressure behind a normal shock wave and the pressure of freestream at a given Mach number. Although the relation is rigorous in... continue reading

Shallow-transfer problems in Erzya-Moksha conjunctive-preterite2 syncretism

The Mordvin languages, Erzya and Moksha, have as many as eight moods, including the Conj(unctive), and Ind(icative). Both languages have two Ind preterites (Prt1, Prt2) and a non-past. In Erzya, Prt2 and Conj have distinct morphology, whereas, in... continue reading

Calculation of multi-dimensional information acquisition in space potential disintegration target

Some space debris belongs to the upper stage of the rocket, and propellant remains inside the debris, which may explode and generate more space debris. In order to identify potential disintegration targets in space, understand the remaining amount... continue reading

Spacecraft cluster cloud high-frequency optimization computing theory

The satellite-ground collaborative computing requires information transmission between the satellite and the ground, which will cause significant delay, resulting in a time from calculation to execution of more than milliseconds. In the best case,... continue reading

Develop a uniform tool to assess sanitation in urban slums

The quality of sanitation is poor in urban slums across the globe. Sanitation deprivations are greater in urban slums in developing countries, which continually experience unmanageable influxes of slum dwellers.

Governments have limited... continue reading
