Wow! 180 satellites means better connectivity, e-commerce, and a better 24X7internet experience! What it means is that students will be able to do research on the go, housewives access recipes on line, and mergers and takeovers take place in mid-flight!

WIRED: The Experiment That Forever Changed How We Think About Reality

WIRED: The Experiment That Forever Changed How We Think About Reality | future | Scoop.it

Is reality blurry or do we just see it that way? In the early days of quantum mechanics, Einstein and other scientists argued that our theories just weren't strong enough. The uncertainty principle says that you can’t know certain properties of a quantum system at the same time. For example, you can’t simultaneously know the position of a particle and its momentum. But what does that imply about reality? If we could peer behind the curtains of quantum theory, would we find that objects really do have well defined positions and momentums? Or does the uncertainty principle mean that, at a fundamental level, objects just can’t have a clear position and momentum at the same time. In other words, is the blurriness in our theory or is it in reality itself?

Bird Flu: H7N9 Infection Risk Mapped

Bird Flu: H7N9 Infection Risk Mapped | future | Scoop.it

There have been 131 cases of infection confirmed cases of H7N9 in mainland China with 39  deaths. A lack of information about the virus and its mode of transmission  led to public concerns that H7N9 could be a pandemic waiting to happen.A map of avian influenza (H7N9) risk is now available. The map is comprised of bird migration patterns, and adding in estimations of poultry production and consumption, which are used to infer future risk and to advise on ways to prevent infection.

Phillip Trotter's curator insight, June 21, 2013 12:50 AM

Professor Jiming Liu who led the study explained, "By basing our model on wild bird migration and distribution of potentially infected poultry we are able to produce a time line of the estimated risk of human infection with H7N9. The preliminary results of our study made a prediction of bird flu risk which could explain the pattern of the most recent cases. By extending the model we will be able to predict future infection risks across central and western China, which will aid in surveillance and control of H7N9 infections. Since the effect of poultry-to-poultry infection is not really understood it may become necessary to regulate the activity of poultry markets. To learn more click on the image or title.

I first learned about Doug Engelbart thanks to Howard Rheingold's Tools for Thought - a book that massively shaped the way I think about computers. As a student and then simulation and HCI researcher, Engelbart's work, thoughts and insights were a continual source of inspiration. Sorry to hear of his passing today.

Soon, decayed teeth may repair themselves

Soon, decayed teeth may repair themselves | future | Scoop.it
British scientists have discovered a technique which can make a decayed tooth repair itself.

 

The technique, developed at King's College, London, effectively reverses decay by using electrical currents to boost the tooth's natural repair process.

This path-breaking treatment could be available in three years, according to the British researchers who created it.

The two-step method developed first prepares the damaged part of the enamel outer layer of the tooth and then uses a tiny electric current to 'push' minerals into the tooth to repair the damaged site.

The defect is remineralized in a painless process that requires no drills, no injections and no filling materials. Electric currents are already used by dentists to check the pulp or nerve of a tooth; the new device uses a far smaller current than that currently used on patients and which cannot be felt by the patient.

The technique is known as Electrically Accelerated and Enhanced Remineralization.

The researchers said, "Dentists could soon be giving your teeth a mild 'time warp' to encourage them to self-repair . It aims to take the pain out of tooth decay treatment by electrically reversing the process to help teeth 'remineralize' ."

Nigel Pitts from the Dental Institute at King's College London said, "The way we treat teeth today is not ideal - when we repair a tooth by putting in a filling, that tooth enters a cycle of drilling and re-filling as, ultimately, each "repair" fails. Not only is our device kinder to the patient and better for their teeth, but it's expected to be at least as cost-effective as current dental treatments. Along with fighting tooth decay, our device can also be used to whiten teeth."

*Podcast with Alok Jha

"Imperial College London hosts a meeting of scientists working at the cutting edge of bio-engineering and synthetic biology.

Synthetic biology is likely to have a profound impact on our future health, the environment and how scientists relate to society – and Imperial College London is at the forefront of this exciting new field in Europe. In this week's show Alok Jha attends the sixth international meeting on synthetic biology, which took place at Imperial. Prof Paul Freemont and Professor Richard Kitney, co-directors of the EPSRC Centre for Synthetic Biology and Innovation at Imperial, explained why synthetic biology has become so important for industry in such a short time. The conference hosted a diverse range of scientists, academics and artists. Alok interviewed designer Alexandra Daisy Ginsberg about collaborating with bio-engineers and scientists in imagining future applications and consequences of this emerging technology; Dr Tom Ellis, of Imperial College London, and Dr Leslie Mitchell, of Johns Hopkins University, about their work creating a synthetic yeast; Prof Farren Issacs from Yale University about new tools he is designing for biomedical research; and biological conservationist and consultant Kent Redford on using synthetic biology to preserve the world's biodiversity. Subscribe for free via iTunes to ensure every episode gets delivered.
