U.S. Army Developing Energized Fabrics - American Chemical Society | Shahriyar Gourgi | Scoop.it
Soldiering in arctic conditions is tough. Protective clothing can be heavy and can cause overheating and sweating, while hands and feet can grow numb. To keep military personnel more comfortable, scientists are trying to create high-tech fabrics that heat up when powered and that capture sweat. These fabrics could conceivably be used in future consumer clothing. The researchers will present their results today at the 254th National Meeting & Exposition of the American Chemical Society.

Europe Dances With the Devil in Libya - Leanne Tory-Murphy, African Arguments

Europe Dances With the Devil in Libya - Leanne Tory-Murphy, African Arguments | Shahriyar Gourgi | Scoop.it
By empowering Libyan warlords and constraining NGO rescue missions, migrant numbers to Italy have halved. But at what cost? On 10 May, in the early European summer, a rescue vessel patrolling the Mediterranean Sea came across a familiar sight: a wooden boat overcrowded with migrants.
