Conventional silver wire based conductive rubbers have had limited biomedical applications because silver is toxic to the body. In this study, the gold sheath prevents both silver’s leaching, and corrosion caused by air and biological fluids, such as sweat. “Finding the right proportion of each material was the key to success.”Being the first of its kind, it’s expected that the implant prototype will contribute to the research and production of future bioelectronics.The researchers plan to further develop the prototype by maximising the conductivity and stretchability of the mesh by designing non toxic materials, and studying the therapeutic effect of it in cardiac diseases..
A recent survey of American voters showed that more than half that’s 55 percent say that Edward Snowden is a whistleblower rather than a traitor. The Quinnipiac University poll showed that opinion about an NSA contractor who leaked those secret documents. That opinion crosses all parties, gender and income lines, with accusations and denials by Google, Apple, Facebook, Microsoft that Prism had open access to private photos, emails and records.
The downfall, as Philip Roscoe shows, is that prices are too linear, too flat to reveal the inner truths of the motivation and outcomes behind every decision.Conventional microeconomics is myopic, because it provides analytical outcomes without regard to social consequences, argues Roscoe, who is on the faculty of management at the University of St. Andrews in Scotland, and a former financial journalist. So, investing in machinery to make production swifter or more efficient may result in layoffs of workers and that is unkind to victims and evidence of bad analysis.
And Mara’s comment when asked if he could foresee Beckham not being on the team in 2018 “I can’t answer that one way or the other” wasn’t even the most telling part of his interview. It was Mara’s long pause after the question was asked. Every reporter with their heads in their phones looked up after the few seconds of alarming silence..
Hurts to lose him. You guys got a good one. I thought he was worth a max.. Just like many enthusiastic runners, I’ve read Born to Run by Christopher McDougall and found it a great book. McDougall visits a Mexican tribe who run great distances at incredible speed, and comes to the conclusion that cushioned trainers are the cause of many running injuries. The book got a generation of amateur runners to think about running in a different way and I’m no exception..
