Happiest couples sleep an inch apart | 21st Century Innovative Technologies and Developments as also discoveries, curiosity ( insolite)... | Scoop.it
Partners who sleep less than an inch apart are more likely to be happy in their relationship than those maintaining a gap wider than 30 inches


In addition, more couples who made physical contact through the night were happier than those with a "no touching" rule while trying to sleep.

Bend It, Charge It, Dunk It: Graphene, the Material of Tomorrow

Bend It, Charge It, Dunk It: Graphene, the Material of Tomorrow | 21st Century Innovative Technologies and Developments as also discoveries, curiosity ( insolite)... | Scoop.it
The material has the potential to change the electronics industry, and recently researchers have focused on how to produce it commercially.


Graphene is the strongest, thinnest material known to exist. A form of carbon, it can conduct electricity and heat better than anything else. And get ready for this: It is not only the hardest material in the world, but also one of the most pliable.

Only a single atom thick, it has been called the wonder material.

Computer-generated models are starting to let researchers and students peer into the body without needing a real human stretched out before them. Virtual dissection tables have been built at places like Stanford and the University of Calgary. Now, University of Michigan computer scientists and biologists have taken the technology another step forward, using projectors, joysticks and 3-D equipment to build a floating holographic human that users can dissect, manipulate, and put back together as they wish.

We live and work in a world that is an integrated entity, increasingly influenced by external cultural factors. For those in leadership positions it is now not only necessary to have a high IQ and EQ (emotional intelligence), but strong Cultural Intelligence (CQ) is also increasingly regarded as a necessary skill to succeed in today's global business community.

Nanotechnology researchers produce new anti-cancer drug from turmeric


The compound is made of curcumin found in the extract of turmeric, and has desirable physical and chemical stability and prevents the proliferation of cancer cells.In this drug, curcumin with high efficiency (approximately 87%) was loaded in the polymeric nanocarrier, and it created a spherical structure with the size of 140 nm.

The drug has high physical and chemical stability. The drug was used successfully in laboratory conditions in the treatment of a type of aggressive tumor in the central nervous system, called glioblastoma (GBM).

Google invents smart contact lens with built-in camera: Superhuman Terminator-like vision here we come

Google invents smart contact lens with built-in camera: Superhuman Terminator-like vision here we come | 21st Century Innovative Technologies and Developments as also discoveries, curiosity ( insolite)... | Scoop.it
Google has invented a new smart contact lens with an integrated camera. By virtue of being part of the contact lens, the camera would naturally follow your gaze, allowing for a huge range of awesome applications, from the basis of a bionic eye system for blind and visually impaired people, through to early warning systems (the camera spots a hazard before your brain does), facial recognition, and superhuman powers (telescopic and infrared/night vision). In related news, Google Glass is publicly available today in the US for one day only (still priced at $1500).

Scientists Discover Evidence of a New Type of Matter: the Tetraquark

Scientists Discover Evidence of a New Type of Matter: the Tetraquark | 21st Century Innovative Technologies and Developments as also discoveries, curiosity ( insolite)... | Scoop.it
The recent identification of a long-theorized particle is strong evidence of a new form of matter: the Tetraquark.


With the existence of tetraquarks, it is possible for neutrons within the core to interact strongly enough to create tetraquarks. This could even lead to the production of pentaquarks and hexaquarks, or even that quarks could interact individually without being bound into color neutral particles. This would produce a hypothetical object known as a quark star.

US Navy deploys laser weapon system that’s fired with ‘video game-like controller’

US Navy deploys laser weapon system that’s fired with ‘video game-like controller’ | 21st Century Innovative Technologies and Developments as also discoveries, curiosity ( insolite)... | Scoop.it
The US Navy has announced that it is moving ahead with plans to deploy the first ever combat laser weapon. Late this summer, USS Ponce -- a fairly unextraordinary amphibious ship -- will be outfitted with the Laser Weapon System (LaWS).


.

LaWS will be put through some at-sea testing in the Persian (Arabian) Gulf, after which it will be capable of shooting down drones or disabling small attack boats (including suicide bombing missions) at an energy cost of just $1 per shot. Rather fittingly for a futuristic weapons system, LaWS will be fired using a 'video game-like controller.'

Ce n'est pas seulement un ressenti puisqu'ils souffrent davantage d’allergies (30,6 % contre 16,7 à 18,2 %), de cancers (4,8 % contre 1,2 à 3,3 %) ou de troubles de l’humeur (9,4 % contre 4,5 à 5,8 %).
