Researchers Solve the Age Old Mystery of Immunity Status

Age is likely to become just a number in the near future. Scientists have discovered a way to identify the age of our immunity system. The research lays down foundation for uncovering the real immunity status of patients. The immune system is a complex network of various cells. It is critical for a healthy functioning body. Hence, the researching team has developed a metric known as IMM-AGE, which correctly categorizes

Fabric

Scientists discovered a fabric from synthetic material initiated by humidity and temperature. It has a nano-tube coating and releases energy in humid conditions, by locking it when the surroundings are dry and cool. Researchers at University of Maryland have developed a fabric which automatically controls the heat amount which goes through it. When the surroundings are humid and warm, for example, around the sweating bodies. In this case, it lets

JD AI and Beijing University researchers have recently developed PVSS, a progressive vehicle search system for surveillance video networks. This system helps in effectively searching a particular vehicle which appears in surveillance footage. Generally, vehicle search systems comprise of various useful applications such as automated surveillance and smarter transportation. Consequently, such systems allow users in searching time interval and area for finding out vehicle’s location at different times. Furthermore, this

Smartphone

Scientists have developed fake fingerprints, and claim those can hack into regular gadgets, soon. The scientists from Michigan State University and New York University have named those as “DeepMasterPrints.” It is essentially machine-learning technique that go about as a sort of “master key”. This technology, the scientists claim, can open one out of every three fingerprint secured cellphones. They revealed their findings in a paper published in October. In it,

Schematic design and voltage as a functioning of the existing FlexTEG module help to operate at different temperature gradients. A research team from Osaka University developed a flexible thermoelectric generator (FlexTEG) module which is comparatively inexpensive. Thus, the TE module is applicable for large-scale usage. This module offers high mechanical reliability for highly efficient power generation. The Advanced Materials Technologies journal released the results of the research and module. Continuous

Physical Inactivity Directly Connected With Genetic Exchange

Researchers at the University of Oxford noticed that our genes determine the time spent while doing activities. It was the largest study based on 91,105 participants who wore an activity monitor on their wrists for a week. The scientists have instructed machines for identifying the behavior and monitoring a huge amount of data. They noticed time spent by activities such as sitting, moving, and sleeping. Researchers combined data collected from

Recent Study Shows Adolescent Depression is on the Rise

Depression has achieved epidemic proportions. A recent study by a researcher at Rutgers University-Camden shows that a rising number of adolescents suffer from it in the U.S. Worse, they remain untreated. This means more awareness programs need to be created. The researcher’s from the university feel enhanced educational programs and upping of service capacities can be a solution. The research finds that older adolescents, girls, and those with single mothers

Researchers Discovered New Step toward Cure of Brain Hemorrhage

Intracerebral hemorrhage or ICH, most commonly known as cerebral bleed, occurs within the brain tissue and is a kind of intracranial bleed within the ventricles or brain tissue. Common symptoms include high blood pressure, low cholesterol, vomiting, weakness, one-sided headache, neck stiffness, and decreased level of consciousness. The main causes of brain hemorrhage are arteriovenous malformations, brain trauma, brain tumor, and aneurysms. Brain Bleeding Could Be Stopped With the Drug

Food Technology and Research to Boost Crop Nutrients

Considerable catastrophic impact is caused on the planet Earth by climate changes. The climate change negatively impacts the growth of the crop yields. This leads to decrease in nutrients in food staple like vegetable, rice, and legumes. This may lead to decrease in nutrients amount in human body, ultimately resulting in malnutrition. According to a Agri-tech expert, the standard of the food quality is continuously decreasing every day. This is

Social Media

Heavy use of social media such as Facebook, Twitter, Snapachat, and Instagram is likely to make a person more depressed and feel lonely. A team of researchers from the University of Pennsylvania carried out a study on 143 undergraduate. The result showed that that extreme use of social media might lead to poor health and can make a person depressed. The study was published in the Journal of Social and
