About the Safety Zone The Safety Zone covers chemical safety issues in academic and industrial research labs and in manufacturing. It is intended to be a forum for exchange and discussion of lab and plant safety and accident information without the fanfare of a news article. Read more » Source link…

Better support for thumb accessibility on Slack mobile

When the App Store first arrived, designing an iOS app was a straightforward process; you only had to worry about how the app would look and operate on a single device. But as the iPhone evolved, variations in screen sizes were introduced and it became a challenge to maintain consistency across devices whilst making efficient use of screen space. Typically, when we think of user experience, the first thing that comes to mind is, “How do people interact with my…

ASEE recognizes MU Engineering for commitment to diversity, inclusion

The ASEE selected Mizzou Engineering for a Bronze Level award, the highest given out in this recognition cycle. The American Society for Engineering Education recently launched their Diversity Recognition Program to recognize schools and colleges of engineering for their commitment to diversity and inclusion. Schools committed to the Dean’s Diversity Pledge in 2017 followed by an application for the Diversity Recognition Program outlining their efforts in the area. Each institution was reviewed twice by a 24-person panel. Mizzou Engineering’s efforts…

Enzyme that helps protect us from stress linked to liver cancer growth — ScienceDaily

An enzyme induced by stress to help reduce production of damaging free radicals is also used by liver cancer to regulate two major cell proliferation pathways that enable the cancer to thrive, scientists report. They’ve also found that when they block the enzyme Nqo1, it dramatically reduces the proliferation of liver cancer cells, a hallmark of cancer’s ability to survive and thrive, they report in the journal HEPATOLOGY. Nqo1 is highly expressed in both their mouse model of liver cancer…

Don’t mix sodium hydride with polar aprotic solvents – The Safety Zone

Posted By Jyllian Kemsley on Aug 21, 2019 in Accidents, Featured | Combining sodium hydride with some solvents can be a bad idea, as a group of researchers from Corteva Agriscience and Dow Chemical remind the chemistry community in Organic Process Research & Development ,(2019, DOI: 10.1021/acs.oprd.9b00276). An intact calorimetry cell (left) and a ruptured cell the authors used to study the explosive risk of NaH in DMSO. These cells typically rupture at pressures in excess of…

Scientists propose network of imaging centers to drive innovation in biological research — ScienceDaily

When sparks fly to innovate new technologies for imaging life at the microscopic scale, often diverse researchers are nudging each other with a kind of collegial one-upmanship. “Look at the resolution we obtain with this microscope I’ve designed,” the physicist says. “Great,” the biologist replies, “but my research organism moves fast. Can you boost the system’s speed?” “You’ll have terabytes of raw data coming off that microscope system,” says the computational scientist. “We’ll build in algorithms to manage the data…

Building a universal search system for Pinterest – Pinterest Engineering

Zhongxian Chen | Pinterest Tech Lead, Search On Pinterest, the best answer goes beyond text, but can even go beyond an image too. When you’re looking for eye makeup ideas for example, a video personalized to your skin tone range teaching you how to create a certain look is likely more useful than a Pin showing what the end result looks like. If you’re sprucing up your backyard and looking for lighting ideas, an expert on backyard lighting to follow…

Advancing AI: A Conversation with Jeff Clune, Senior Research Manager at Uber

The past few months have been a whirlwind for Jeff Clune, Senior Research Manager at Uber and a founding member of Uber AI Labs. In June 2019, research by him and his collaborators on POET, an algorithm that generates its own challenges and learns to solve them, took home a best paper award at GECCO; in July, a paper he co-wrote earlier in his career was named Outstanding Publication of the Decade by the International Society for Artificial Life; and,…
