Dr Kent Brantley and missionary Nancy Writebol , the two aid workers who contracted the ebola virus and received an experimental drug while still in Africa, have been discharged from Emory University Hospital, but the experts are uncertain if the experimental drug had played any part in aiding in their recoveries.
Infineon Technologies AG and International Rectifier Corporation have signed to Infineon acquiring International Rectifier for $40 per share in an all-cash transaction valued at approximately $3 billion.
The DARPA GXV-T (Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency's Ground XVehicleTechnology program) aims to introduce technology and mobility to make fighting vehicles more mobile, effective and affordable, by replacing the expensive and slow 'more armour' paradigm for fighter's protection.
In his "Just say No" leader, Brendan O'Neill, editor of Spiked-Online argues that "in essence, then, the new phenomenon of ‘Scottish independence’ can be seen as an end result of the dual crisis of our times: the crisis of the state and the crisis of the left, with the former inciting separatism and the latter undermining the old values of universalism
A simulation study of Ge (germanium) and Si (silicon) pOS FinFET to demonstrate that Si strain, silicide contact resistance, BTBT (band to band tunnelling) and GIDL (gate induced drain leakage) all contribute to Ge being less than ideal as a replacement for current silicon FinFETs has been undertaken by an intriguing team, half located in Glasgow, Scotland and half in San Jose, California.
The recent studies into the Gheko's sticky-footed ability, and developments with self-organising thousand-robot swarms based on biological collectives, shows that the hard engineering approach to robotic development is maturing into much softer skills facilities to develop adaptable robotic skills based on 'soft' living entities.
The existence of the "Hacienda" spy program reported by a group of journalists, has five western intelligence agencies using the Hacienda software to identify vulnerable servers across the world in order to control them and use them for their own purposes. TUM (Technische Universität München) scientists have developed free software that can help prevent this kind of identification and the subsequent systems capture.
Already operating successfully in Bantry, West Cork, Norwegian contained tank fish farming company, Niri AS has now chosen the Gaydon hanger at the Macrihanish Airbase as its site in Scotland. It brings its desirable contained fish farming operation as opposed to the existing numerous sea-cage fish farm systems with their lice and worrying pollution problems.
Newborns suffering from life-threatening bacterial infections such as sepsis could benefit from improved treatment, thanks to a ground-breaking study where researchers have been able to detect and decode a signal generated from a baby’s DNA that can tell whether or not a bacterial infection is present in the bloodstream.
The catalogue may not be dead yet, but for electronic component supplier Kennet, the move has been to develop a Catalogue App for the iPad that provides convenient access to more than 350 capacitor and electronic component product datasheets.
A solid state battery that would replace the conventional liquid electrolytes used in lithium-ion batteries could eventually store twice as much energy as a conventional one, and could be about to move beyond niche applications into wearable devices, phones, and even electric cars.
Amazon is putting considerable pressure on authors and boutique publishers. While some blame Amazon for greed, other insist that the big revolution for writers and other content producers will not account Amazon, but rather from encouraging startups like Patreon.
VTT, the Technical Research Centre of Finland has issued a report that summarises the pilot-phase of a NewWoW project whose introduction presents categories of new ways of working in its state-of-the-art report. In the UK Birmingham based Batalas an international trainer and consultancy, was in 2010 offering process improvement and work study techniques.
This month carbon material expert Morgan Advanced Materials declared a £15m contract win to supply protected vehicles to a European country drawing upon its global expertise in composite, ceramic armour systems to be executed during 2014 and 2015. It also declared its latest strategy move, a joint development agreement with University of Manchester, aimed at scaling up a new process for graphene manufacture.
Two deadly forces rampage through the Arabian Peninsula and include Nigeria, Guinea, Sierra Leone and Liberia. As the Isis map of ambition reaching out to China surfaces on Twitter, a much older and equally ruthless Ebola virus spreads its territorial claims too.
Amazing what catches the eye. Gaberlunzie loves the Crown Estate for its story on Teesmouth as "a shining example how industry and nature can thrive side by side. " He flinched at the idea of an earthquake in Orkney, (computers always get the stick there) and he is intrigued by how us tax payers come to be saved millions!
Rebecca Kramer, a Purdue University assistant professor of mechanical engineering, will lead a Purdue team focusing on "active elastic skins for soft robotics" and is among the seven researchers selected by NASA for Early Career Faculty awards to pursue new technologies in robotics, lasers and other systems for space exploration.
