Deletion of a stem cell factor promotes traumatic brain injury recovery in mice — ScienceDaily

UT Southwestern molecular biologists today report the unexpected finding that selectively deleting a stem cell transcription factor in adult mice promotes recovery after traumatic brain injury (TBI). The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention defines TBI as a bump, blow, or jolt to the head that disrupts normal brain function, ranging from mild — brief changes in mental status — to severe, marked by an extended period of unconsciousness or memory loss. In humans, most TBIs are mild and are…

A deep dive into authorization and delayed capture.

In this post we’ll dig into what options are available in holding an amount from a card and capturing or cancelling it later. Placing a hold on a card, or “pre-auth”-ing a transaction is very similar in practice as charging a card directly with the APIs. When to delay capture? Choosing to delay capture on a transaction instead of directly charging is usually decided by the type of business you have. You could place a hold on someone’s card while they borrow…

Open sourcing ptracer, a syscall-tracing library for Python

Elvis Pranskevichus, Pinterest engineer, Core Experience Making Pinterest faster and more reliable is a constant focus for our engineering team and using hardware resources more efficiently is a major part of this effort. Improving efficiency and reliability requires good diagnostic tools, and today we’re announcing our newest tracing tool: ptracer, which provides granular syscall tracing in Python programs. In this post we’ll cover background on Pinterest’s codebase, why we needed a better tracer and how ptracer can help solve certain…

Getting to Know Lauren Caponong

Prior to working in design and engineering, she obtained a degree in fine arts, with concentrations in painting, drawing, and digital art. Why are you so passionate about video?Bringing video to LinkedIn is rather exciting for me because video truly has transformed the way people receive, process, and internalize information. It enables people to connect in much more engaging ways—spurring creativity, new ideas, and action. On a professional network such as LinkedIn, there are endless possibilities of what can be…

Research shows drones could help crop management take off

Shawn Butler, a graduate student at the University of Tennessee College of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources, analyzes cotton research plots from his laptop thanks to images obtained with an unmanned areial system (UAS), also called a drone. This research could help farmers improve crop monitoring.

New computational method provides optimized design of wind up toys

A team of leading computer scientists has developed a novel computational system to aid the design and fabrication of wind-up toys, focusing on automating the intricate interior machinery responsible for the toys’ wind-up motion. The new computational system includes analytic modeling of a wide variety of elemental mechanisms found in common wide-up toys, including their geometry and kinematics, and automating the construction of the toys accurately and with moving parts that consume less energy. The researchers, from University of Science…

New method analyzes corn kernel characteristics

Kernel maps of all maize ears. If no multi-counts occurred, the kernels are shown in black. In case of multi-counts, the kernels are shown in grey, and the multi-counted kernels in black. Credit: University of Illinois An ear of corn averages about 800 kernels. A traditional field method to estimate the number of kernels on the ear is to manually count the number of rows and multiply by the number of kernels in one length of the ear. With the…

Researchers develop smart, ultra-thin microfibre sensor for real-time healthcare monitoring and diagnosis

A research team led by Professor Lim Chwee Teck (standing) from the Department of Biomedical Engineering at NUS Faculty of Engineering has developed a soft, flexible and stretchable microfibre sensor for real-time healthcare monitoring and diagnosis. The sensor can measure pulse waveform in real-time, and the information can be used to determine one’s heart rate, blood pressure and stiffness in blood vessels.
