La Niña Is Kicking El Niño's Ass | #Climate #ClimateChange 

La Niña Is Kicking El Niño's Ass | #Climate #ClimateChange  | 21st Century Innovative Technologies and Developments as also discoveries, curiosity ( insolite)... | Scoop.it
Move over, El Niño. You may be the strongest such climate pattern humans have ever recorded, and you may have given California crabs this week, but the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration can see right through you, and you’re losing ground.

That’s right: the El Niño phenomenon that fueled endless weird weather, hot months, and Chris Farley jokes this past year is on the downswing. And if the latest NOAA data is any indicator, La Niña is liquored up and ready to rage. The Hot Blob that’s been cooling its heels over the Pacific for the past year—a constant reminder that we’re in the steamy clutches of a monster El Niño—is now being undercut by a deeper pool of colder water.

MIT researchers invented an origami robot that will unfold in your stomach

MIT researchers invented an origami robot that will unfold in your stomach | 21st Century Innovative Technologies and Developments as also discoveries, curiosity ( insolite)... | Scoop.it

Researchers have invented an origami robot that, true to its name, unfolds in your stomach.


If that sounds gross to you, that's because it totally is, but it could be a game-changer in the medical community due to its ability to remove batteries from the human body, according to a paper recently presented at the International Conference on Robotics and Automation.

It’s another victory for the machines: a robotic surgical system outperformed humans and robot-assisted human operators in a soft-tissue procedure, bringing us that much closer to automated medical care (and the robocalypse).

The Smart Tissue Autonomous Robot (STAR) was designed at the Children’s National Medical Center as an attempt to bring automation to soft-tissue surgery, a field where the versatility and spatial skills of human surgeons have long made them essential.

Scoop it Blog on: For the first time ever, a human with paralysis can move his hand againDate: April 14Link:My summary: this article was about how a guy who suffers with paralysis in his hands is given the chance to move his hands again with help of technology that takes signals from his brain to his Muscles in his hands and arms so that they can move and function like they used to. It also says that this new technology may not be distributed to the public for a very long time Because it's still being tested. There has been only 1 person to use it so far and it's been successful for almost 2 years. I think that this new technology for helping paralysis is a good idea Because it can help people who are trying to get back to work and it would allow them to carry on with their life without struggles that paralysis has. It would be a great idea to bring this to the public so they can have their opinions as well and have better ideas that can go with it so it can advance even more. It may be hard to get it going, like it said In the article because so far only one person has successfully used it, but once it's released I'm sure it will bring huge benefits to those who need it and people who want to bring new ideas.
Sadie's curator insight, April 14, 9:11 AM
Thursday, April 14th BY CHELSEA HARVEY This article is about a man who had paralysis from a swimming accident. He was the first man to test the new technology and he cured his hand, he is able to move them again. I think this was a really interesting article and it's amazing how they found the technology to cure his hand and hopefully cure the rest of the people with paralysis and keep making miracles happen.

The World’s Smallest Pacemaker Can Be Implanted Without Surgery | #Research #Medicine 

The World’s Smallest Pacemaker Can Be Implanted Without Surgery | #Research #Medicine  | 21st Century Innovative Technologies and Developments as also discoveries, curiosity ( insolite)... | Scoop.it
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has approved an injectable pacemaker that doesn’t require wired leads, which often lead to complications.


Image: Medtronic
The one-inch long Medtronic-built device, called the Micra Transcatheter Pacing System, is about a tenth the size of traditional pacemakers—making it the smallest in the world.

It’s intended for patients with atrial fibrillation (an irregular or rapid heart rate) and other dangerous arrhythmias, including bradycardia-tachycardia syndrome. The FDA approved the device in light of a Medtronic clinical trial involving 719 patients who were implanted with the device. After six months, around 98 percent of the patients experienced adequate heart pacing. A small fraction (7 percent) of patients experienced major complications, such as cardiac injuries, device dislocation, and blood clots.

Chronos: MIT's new Wi-Fi tech is eerily accurate

Chronos: MIT's new Wi-Fi tech is eerily accurate | 21st Century Innovative Technologies and Developments as also discoveries, curiosity ( insolite)... | Scoop.it
Wi-Fi could soon have a very detailed geofence, if MIT researchers have their way. They’ve introduced a new project named ‘Chronos’ that helps Wi-Fi signals locate you within “tens of centimeters.”

The team managed this by monitoring several Wi-Fi bands, then cobbling the data together to find out how long a signal takes to find the end user. In knowing the time and distance it takes for a Wi-Fi signal to travel, MIT can create advanced geofencing.

A biomimetic 'bridge' to precision medicine

(Nanowerk News) Nanotechnology has led to better diagnostic techniques and treatments for a variety of illnesses. Tiny devices that enable scientists to observe cell activity and deliver drugs to individual cells promise to revolutionize precision medicine for treatment of diseases such as cancer.
One obstacle to fulfilling nanomedicine’s promise is the inability to observe cell-to-cell interactions in an environment that closely simulates the dynamic environment inside the body. A micro-fluid environment that mimics blood flow is key to learning how cells become damaged by disease—and how they might respond to treatment.
Now a team of researchers at Lehigh and the University of Pennsylvania has developed a technique that uses antibody-coated nanoparticles as imaging probes to watch cell-to-cell interactions under micro-fluid conditions.

Graphene patch monitors blood glucose and auto-injects treatment | #Research #Medicine | 21st Century Innovative Technologies and Developments as also discoveries, curiosity ( insolite)... | Scoop.it
If you were sitting around worrying that graphene might not be able to live up to its potential in electrochemical bio-sensing (and that has to be at least half of you), then worry no more: All we have to do to make graphene practical for every-day use is mix it with gold! By employing just a tiny amount of the precious metal to offset some of graphene’s least helpful properties, it turns out that we might be able to fully exploit its best ones. A new study published in Nature Nanotechnology uses this hybrid to create a flexible skin patch to monitor blood glucose and, more importantly, automatically administer drugs as needed.

Une technique de compression pour le calcul à haute performance

Toute nouvelle méthode de compression des données qui serait plus efficace que les autres, au moins dans certains cas, est donc importante, aussi bien pour la recherche fondamentale que pour l'industrie.

Olivier Thomine, un jeune numéricien, a justement trouvé un nouvel algorithme prometteur de compression alors qu'il était en postdoc au CEA (Commissariat à l'énergie atomique et aux énergies alternatives). Il a notamment travaillé sur la simulation numérique des plasmas tels ceux que l'on rencontrera dans le réacteur d'Iter. Les membres de Futura-Sciences le connaissent bien puisqu'il est un des modérateurs actifs du forum. Nous avons donc demandé à Olivier Thomine de nous expliquer l'enjeu de sa découverte.
