Indian Doctor Formulates Medicine To Cure Coronavirus In Just 48 Hours

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, government

Though scientists and doctors around the world are trying to tackle the epidemics, there’s actually no cure or vaccination for saving patients from this deadly virus. However, Dr. Thanikasalam Veni, an Indian doctor who pays attention to Ayurveda and Siddha medicine, has created an herbal cure made from several plants in search of shutting down the invasion of Wuhan Coronavirus before it threatens more lives.

According to Dr. Thanikasalam, his cure basically consists of herb extracts, focusing on easing viral fever. Because experts have yet to come up with real Corona remedies, it’s considered an effective way to treat dengue, multi-organ failure as well as acute liver fever. With the availability of this new method, patients reportedly need to take just about 24–48 hours of curing to withstand the coronavirus infection.

In a statement, the Indian doctor said he aims to notice both the Chinese government and the World Health Organization (WHO) about the effectiveness of such herbal extract medicine for the multi-organ failure once a person has to suffer corona fever condition in most cases, which can result in his death.

New Website Tracks Coronavirus Outbreak in Real Time

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, government

You’d have to be living under a very isolated rock to be unaware of the dangerous coronavirus outbreak centered on the city of Wuhan in China. The disease has infected several thousand people, and more than 100 have died. Researchers at Johns Hopkins University have created a new tool to track and visualize the outbreak. In a world where it’s easy to spread incorrect information, having an authoritative and easily digestible source like this can be essential.

China allegedly sought to keep the epidemic under wraps, arresting people who posted about the virus on social media. However, the rapid spread of coronavirus infections soon made it impossible to hide. The Chinese government eventually sealed the city of Wuhan as it tries to get a handle on the situation, but many people left the city before that happened. Surrounding provinces have confirmed several dozen infections, and there are a handful of cases in other countries like Thailand, Japan, and the US.

Coronaviruses are a common cause of respiratory infections in humans — it’s one of the pathogens that can cause the “common cold.” However, some strains can be much more dangerous. For example, the 2003 SARS outbreak was a strain of coronavirus called SARS-CoV. The new strain doesn’t have a fancy acronym. It’s just known as the Novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV). Out of over 4,000 infections, 106 have died and only 79 have completely recovered.

Mind-altering drugs: The magical history of LSD and mushrooms

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, government

About 50 years ago, scientists believed magic mushrooms and LSD held a lot of medicinal promise. So then, how did they become such a taboo to even discuss? Government officials thought that if young men were on LSD, they wouldn’t want to fight in wars.

In this video, author Michael Pollan describes the little known history of psychedelic drugs in America.

Taiwan Is Opening A Giant AI-Focused Business Park

Posted by in categories: business, engineering, government, robotics/AI, space

Taiwan has been the world’s hardware hub for decades, so the shift toward AI makes the most of the existing inexpensive engineering talent. A refocus on AI, however, reduces reliance on hardware, which can easily be made somewhere else, such as China, at lower costs. Multinational tech companies have already shown interest in tapping Taiwan’s talent in software, including AI.

To move things along further, the government of Hsinchu County, near Taipei, will open a 126,000-square-meter (about 1.3 million square feet) AI business park near one of Taiwan’s major all-purpose high-tech zones and two top universities.

“[The park] will not just help [promote] industry-academia cooperation, but also let AI-oriented startups and companies have a demo space to verify AI product services,” says Shirley Tsai, a research manager with IDC Taiwan’s enterprise solution group. “It will be helpful as well to attract the companies who are interested in the AI field and then accelerating the AI ecosystem.”

IBM And University Of Tokyo Launch Quantum Computing Initiative For Japan

Posted by in categories: computing, education, government, information science, quantum physics

IBM and the University of Tokyo will form the Japan – IBM Quantum Partnership, a broad national partnership framework in which other universities, industry, and government can engage. The partnership will have three tracks of engagement: one focused on the development of quantum applications with industry; another on quantum computing system technology development; and the third focused on advancing the state of quantum science and education.

Under the agreement, an IBM Q System One, owned and operated by IBM, will be installed in an IBM facility in Japan. It will be the first installation of its kind in the region and only the third in the world following the United States and Germany. The Q System One will be used to advance research in quantum algorithms, applications and software, with the goal of developing the first practical applications of quantum computing.

IBM and the University of Tokyo will also create a first-of-a-kind quantum system technology center for the development of hardware components and technologies that will be used in next generation quantum computers. The center will include a laboratory facility to develop and test novel hardware components for quantum computing, including advanced cryogenic and microwave test capabilities.
