A new study published in the journal Alcoholism: Clinical & Experimental Research clearly states that heavy drinking triggers DNA change. Such long-lasting genetic change leads to increased craving for alcohol. Professor Dipak K. Sarkar at Rutgers University-New Brunswick said that heavy drinkers are rapidly changing their DNA. He also asserted that these genetic changes will leave the drinkers with more craving for alcohol. However, this new finding helps in understanding

Signals

MIT researchers have invented a new fully flexible device which converts Wi-Fi signals’ energy into electricity. This new invention promises to power electronics such as smartphones, wearables, and laptops without batteries. “Rectennas” are the devices which can convert electromagnetic AC waves into DC electricity. However, this time researchers have invented new type of rectenna which utilizes a flexible radio-frequency antenna for capturing electromagnetic waves. Moreover, this rectenna also considers Wi-Fi
