By teaching students these skills in an authentic, applicable way, will they see each other differently? It’s worth finding out. With so many curricular and time restraints on teachers, how can we be expected to explicitly teach empathy in a meaningful way?

A Definition Of Empathy

Webster’s dictionary defines empathy as: the action of understanding, being aware of, being sensitive to, and vicariously experiencing the feelings, thoughts, and experience of another of either in the past or present without having the feelings, thoughts, and experience fully communicated in an objectively explicit manner; also: the capacity for this.

Scientists developed a microscope that fits in a needle to get a real-time look inside the human body's cells

Scientists developed a microscope that fits in a needle to get a real-time look inside the human body's cells | Design, Comm, Sci and Tech | Scoop.it

Researchers at the Dutch Advanced Research Center for Nanolithography (ARCNL) and Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam (VU), developed an advanced microscope capable of super-resolution microscopy trough an ultra-thin fiber. 

 

Up until now, it was generally the case that the higher the resolution of a microscope, the larger the device needed to be, making it virtually impossible to look inside the human body in real-time. Although some methods that enable researchers to look inside living animals already exist, their resolution is very limited, and it takes a long time to generate an acceptable image. 

 

With the use of smart signal processing, the researchers are able to beat the theoretical limits of resolution and speed. With this newly developed compact setup, scientists are finally able to, for example, look inside the brain in real-time and high resolution, using an ultra-thin fiber. Because the method does not require any unique fluorescent labeling, it is promising for both medical uses and characterization of 3D structures in nano-lithography!

Are we alone? New estimations of life in the Milky Way suggest life in our neighborhood is incredibly rare.

 

Eight. That's the minimum number of intelligent, communicating alien civilizations two astronomers at the University of Nottingham believe could exist in the Milky Way, our home galaxy.  A new study, published in The Astrophysical Journal on Monday, provides an updated estimate of the likely number of alien civilizations that could exist in the Milky Way. The analysis, performed by astronomers Tom Westby and Christopher Conselice, starts with revising the Drake equation, a formula proposed by Frank Drake in 1962 to estimate how many worlds are likely to harbor intelligent life in our galaxy. The equation relies on a variety of factors, including how often sun-like stars form in the galaxy, how many stars are orbited by planets and how often life evolves and becomes intelligent enough for us to detect it.

COVID-19 Accurately Diagnosed by Artificial Intelligence (AI) | Design, Comm, Sci and Tech | Scoop.it

An AI model that integrates chest CT findings with clinical symptoms could be used to rapidly diagnose COVID-19 patients.

 

A COVID-19 diagnosis is routinely made by a positive test for the presence of SARS-CoV-2. However, the current tests are fraught with challenges. Not only are there shortages of kits, but they take time to complete and carry a possibility of false-negative results.

The immunology of COVID-19: is immune modulation an option for treatment?

The immunology of COVID-19: is immune modulation an option for treatment? | Design, Comm, Sci and Tech | Scoop.it
In December, 2019, an outbreak of COVID-19 emerged in Wuhan, China and quickly spread
globally. As of May 7, 2020, there were 3 672 238 confirmed infections and 254 045
deaths attributed to COVID-19. Evidence has shown that there are asymptomatic carriers
of COVID-19 who can transmit the disease to others. The virus incubation time shows
a wide range (0–24 days) and the virus displays a high infectivity. It is therefore
urgent to develop an effective therapy to treat patients with COVID-19 and to control
the spread of the causative agent, severe respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2.

Virtual-reality applications give science a new dimension

Virtual-reality applications give science a new dimension | Design, Comm, Sci and Tech | Scoop.it
Virtual- and augmented-reality tools allow researchers to view and share data as never before. But so far, they remain largely the tools of early adopters.

As I put on a virtual-reality (VR) headset, the outside world disappears. A cell fills my visual field, and as I crane my neck, I can see it from several angles. I stick my head inside to explore its internal structure. Using hand controllers, I dissect the cell layer by layer, excavating with a flick of the wrist to uncover tiny, specialized structures buried beneath the surface.

Carnivorous plants repurposed existing genes to catch insects and digest proteinHow does a plant develop a taste for flesh? In the play Little Shop of Horrors, all it takes is a drop of human blood. But in real life, it takes much more. Now, a study of three closely related carnivorous plants suggests dextrous genetic shuffling helped them evolve the ability to catch and digest protein-rich meals.

Valve Index users can now virtually recreate their own room | PC Gamer | Design, Comm, Sci and Tech | Scoop.it
In the ever-evolving quest to never have to take our VR headsets off, Valve recently released a new feature for Index users that can accurately project the room around you in 3D space.The goal of the feature, called Room View 3D, is to give a more precise representation of the user's environment for moments when you'd otherwise need to take the headset off. Valve's announcement post doesn't go into detail about how it works, but people who have tried it speculate that it's using the Index's multiple cameras to build a live 3D environment.

Squid skin is naturally anti-microbial

Squid skin is naturally anti-microbial | Design, Comm, Sci and Tech | Scoop.it

This new finding makes squid skin a potentially valuable medical product, and could reduce waste from commercial fisheries.

 

Many types of squid have the ability to alter the color of skin cells called chromatophores, in order to blend in with their environment. This allows them to hide from predators, and is often triggered when the squid feels threatened. These same squids, including the Humboldt squid (Dosidicus gigas), are commercially fished in parts of North and South America.
