  • Despite the presidential support of Coal in the US, at-least 50 coal-fired power plants have closed down since 2017
  • Though the use of coal is declining, environmental experts warn of a trend where companies switch from coal to gas, still a greenhouse gas emitter
  • The deaf causing gene, GJB2, is guaranteed to be passed onto offspring from parents with the mutation
  • If done, this procedure would be the 2nd public production of gene-edited human babies; 1 other man, He Jiankui has done it before
  • The arm is controlled by wheelchair riders using simple controls resembling those already on wheelchairs to catalyze mastery
  • Costing $35,000, the 'Jaco' arm is unlikely to become mainstream; more affordable versions are in R&D
  • Oxford Economics estimates about 8.5% of the global manufacturinig workforce could be displaced by robots within 10 years
  • The study by Oxford predicts that regional wealth polarization of will be drastically exacerbated with automation growth
  • The MIT team focused on eliminating minority bias in AI programs; 42% more likely than white women to die from breast cancer
  • The algorithm uses mammograms from patient to make diagnoses without knowledge of previous risk factors of patients
  • One alternative created by Wagners, an Australian company, has performance advantages while also reducing carbon emissions of cement by 80-90%
  • Though, at the almost 3X higher cost, companies are reluctant to adopt the new cement without government incentives
  • Now, for the 1st time ever since the molecule was discovered 30 years ago, cancer treatment trials can begin
  • This marks a huge achievement for biochemistry & cancer research, as the compound is widely known for its extremely complex shape & behavior
  • The UN has already advocated the use of "Blue Carbon," referring to protists & other aquatic plants that absorb CO2 equivalently to terrestrial plants
  • Marine ecosystems in Japan's coastal waters are estimate to absorb 1.73M tons of CO2 annually, the same as 386,000 household CO2 emissions
  • The powerful duo intend to urge New Zealand's agriculture to shift from livestock farming to plants relevant to meat-alternatives
  • The team has already looked at making the extraction of protein from alfalfa more efficient, among other research endeavors
  • 1 month of daily dosing to 60 healthy elderly subjects was shown to promote healthy mitochondrial function in skeletal muscle
  • The dosing was able to mimic months of exercise in the muscles of healthy elderly subjects
  • A hydrogel microgel architecture is used to capture the 3D printed cells & hold them in place until they have matured into their shape
  • The team used this method to 3D print a cartilage ear & rodent-sized "femur," a 1st for non-scaffolding techniques
  • The study of osteobiography has shown that modern children have narrower elbows, bad posture creates skull protuberances, & more
  • Additionally, the jaw bones & teeth of modern humans are weaker due to the softer food that's consumed in post-industrialized cultures
