Engineering duo among first graduates of Advisor Development Program

Nick Balser and Tami Beatty were among the first graduates of the UM System Advisor Development Program. Academic advisors Tami Beatty and Nick Balser recently graduated from the inaugural class of the UM System Advisor Development Program (ADP). From a congratulatory letter from Jill Wood, Director of the Office of Academic Affairs (UM System) and Kimberly Hoffman, Director of Research Operations and Planning: “(t)he goal of the UM System ADP is to recognize and further develop successful advising and academic…

Embracing papercuts | Dropbox Tech Blog

We’ve all seen “helicopter parents,” hovering over their kids to catch them at the slightest inclination they might fall. We swear we’d never do that, that we’d give our kids room to grow and learn from mistakes. Then we become tech leads and turn into the worst kind of “helicopter leaders.” I was certainly guilty of micromanagement. It started with code reviews, commenting on every minor issue I could find. Hey, just setting a high quality bar. Then it moved to second-guessing…

Scientists restore some functions in a pig’s brain hours after death — ScienceDaily

Circulation and cellular activity were restored in a pig’s brain four hours after its death, a finding that challenges long-held assumptions about the timing and irreversible nature of the cessation of some brain functions after death, Yale scientists report April 18 in the journal Nature. The brain of a postmortem pig obtained from a meatpacking plant was isolated and circulated with a specially designed chemical solution. Many basic cellular functions, once thought to cease seconds or minutes after oxygen and…

Engineering LinkedIn Reactions | LinkedIn Engineering

LinkedIn’s New Reactions  On LinkedIn, you can expect a “like” button to appear on every post in the feed, in every context in which a post appears. You can expect it to maintain state wherever it’s seen. You can expect it to notify the author that you liked the post, and you can expect posts with more engagement to rank higher in your feed. The architectural reach of a “like” in the LinkedIn ecosystem cannot be overstated.  “Likes” flow through…

Scientists advance a way to track changes in a person’s cardiovascular system

Ten years ago, Skubic’s team developed hydraulic sensors that can be placed under a bed mattress to measure a person’s heart rate and respiration rate. The team used those sensors on this hanging bed to gather data for the mathematical model used in this study.

While an electrocardiogram uses a contact approach to measure the electrical activity of the heart, a ballistocardiogram is a non-contact way…

a scalable open-source AV1 framework

by Andrey Norkin, Joel Sole, Kyle Swanson, Mariana Afonso, Anush Moorthy, Anne Aaron Netflix Headquarters, Winchester Circle. Netflix headquarters circa 2014. It’s a nice building with good architecture! This was the primary home of Netflix for a number of years during the company’s growth, but at some point Netflix had outgrown its home and needed more space. One approach to solve this problem would have been to extend the building by attaching new rooms, hallways, and rebuilding the older ones. However,…

Transparent architecture

The ETH spin-off Archilyse developed a software that allows the analysis of real estate down to the smallest detail. Credit: Archilyse ETH spin-off Archilyse promises nothing less than the “world’s most comprehensive architecture analysis” on its website. The young entrepreneurs are attracting a lot of interest in the real estate sector. Is a four-room apartment family-friendly or more suitable for a couple? How can office space be optimally divided so that its users feel comfortable? Archilyse helps to answer these…

Scientists improve sensitivity and stretchability of room-temperature liquid metal-based sensor

a) The relationship between GF and strain. (b) The relationship of resistance change and strain. Photographs of this sensors attached on the joint (c)/fingers (d)/wrists (e) of different motions, and corresponding resistance change. Credit: WANG Lei Scientists have developed a room-temperature, liquid metal-based, super-stretchable sensor with the advantages of easy fabrication, low cost, high repeatability and a gauge factor as great as 4.95. The new device potentially takes liquid metal-based sensors to the next stage. The findings were published in…

Scientists developing technology for water purification by electric discharges

Credit: CC0 Public Domain The environment around us is becoming increasingly polluted. This includes one of our most precious natural resources—water. Clean water is essential to human survival. Due to increased pollution, water treatment methods are becoming increasingly important as well. As regards scientifically proven methods, the plasma water treatment by electrical discharge method is ousting the water chlorination method applied over the last 100 years. An international research group led by Professor at the TalTech Department of Material and…

Announcing AMP Real URL

The promise of the AMP (Accelerated Mobile Pages) project was that it would make the web, and, in particular, the mobile web, much more pleasant to surf. The AMP HTML framework was designed to make web pages load quickly, and not distract the user with extraneous content that took them away from focusing on the web page’s content. It was particularly aimed at publishers (such as news organizations) that wanted to provide the best, fastest web experience for readers catching…
