Human immunodeficiency virus and hepatitis C virus detection using ribonucleic acid sequencing among smokers

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, health

In a recent study published in Scientific Reports, researchers identified serological Hepatitis C virus (HCV) signatures and human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) signatures through the secondary utilization of ribonucleic acid sequencing (RNA-seq) analysis data among previous and existing smokers with or without COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease).

Viral detection by RNA sequencing analysis has increased the knowledge base of viruses causing human infections. Identifying undiagnosed viral infections by using existing nucleic acid sequencing data could facilitate epidemiological survey-based analysis and aid in the development of diagnostic and therapeutic options for improved population health.

Ford hits back at Tesla’s price cuts

Posted by in categories: Elon Musk, sustainability, transportation

It’s probably a good time to buy an electric car.

Ford is slashing the price of its electric Mustang Mach-E by as much $6,000, keeping pace with Tesla’s sweeping price cuts, announced just weeks before.

Ford is also increasing production of the Mach-E in an attempt to shorten wait times, which Marin Gjaja, chief customer officer of Ford’s electric Model e division, said can be up to 150 days currently.

Evolving Neural Networks Workshop

Posted by in categories: neuroscience, robotics/AI

(see below for links to each of the sections)

The goal of the Evolving Neural Networks workshop is to bring together experts from Systems and Computational Neuroscience, Machine Learning and the Evo-Devo field to discuss if and how knowing the evolutionary history of neural circuits can help us understand the way the brain works, as well as the relative importance of learned VS innate neural mechanisms.

Columbia Researchers Uncover Dangerous Connection Between Serotonin and Heart Valve Disease

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, education

Serotonin can impact the mitral valve of the heart and potentially accelerate a cardiac condition known as degenerative mitral regurgitation, according to a new study led by researchers at Columbia University.

Columbia University is a private Ivy League research university in New York City that was established in 1754. This makes it the oldest institution of higher education in New York and the fifth-oldest in the United States. It is often just referred to as Columbia, but its official name is Columbia University in the City of New York.

Salt-rejecting microchannels help make seawater drinkable using the power of the sun

Posted by in categories: nanotechnology, solar power

A solar distillation device can purify brine from reverse osmosis plants with over 10 percent salinity, as well as water taken directly from the Red Sea. The technology offers double the freshwater production rate of existing salt-rejection solar stills.

Inspired by the floating solar still in “The Life of Pi” movie, KAUST professor Qiaoqiang Gan has developed several nanomaterials and thermal isolation processes to enhance the evaporation of brackish water into pure steam. In 2016 he launched a startup, Sunny Clean Water, that produces low-cost inflatable stills capable of generating 10–20 liters of fresh water per day.

Everything We Know About Amazon’s New Home Internet Service

Posted by in categories: internet, satellites

For years the dream of competition in the world of home internet has been just that; a dream. Now in 2023, we are starting to see it become a reality. Wireless internet from places like T-Mobile and Verizon has come on strong recently. New faster satellite internet from SpaceX, and fiber internet have all expanded recently, meaning many Americans who may have had two options in the past now have 4 or 5 options.

Now Amazon wants to join that list by offering high speed internet from space, similar to SpaceX’s Starlink service.

Here is everything we know about Amazon’s new home internet service:
