Orange juice, leafy greens and berries may be tied to decreased memory loss in men — ScienceDaily

Eating leafy greens, dark orange and red vegetables and berry fruits, and drinking orange juice may be associated with a lower risk of memory loss over time in men, according to a study published in the November 21, 2018, online issue of Neurology®, the medical journal of the American Academy of Neurology. “One of the most important factors in this study is that we were able to research and track such a large group of men over a 20-year period…

Making composite electrical aircraft a reality

Credit: Aedka Studio, Shutterstock Researchers with the EU-funded EPICEA project are developing computer tools that will help aircraft manufacturers better understand electromagnetic coupling mechanisms on composite electrical aircraft. Today’s aircraft manufacturers, along with their supply chain, are focused on decreasing energy consumption, improving safety, and reducing emissions. “To optimise the performance of both existing and future generations of aircraft, many manufacturers are turning towards Composite Electrical Aircraft (CEA),” says Jean-Philippe Parmantier, EU coordinator of the EU and Canadian-funded EPICEA project.…

Credit: Osaka University Projection mapping systems that project images onto various-sized curved surfaces ranging from buildings to flowers have been used for scenographic and modern arts since around the turn of the century. The systems are widely utilized not only for entertainment events, but also in clinical practice and technological development. By projecting images onto a surface from a wide range of directions, a group of researchers led by…

This is where automation comes…

Predictive test selection to ensure reliable code changes

To develop new product features and updates efficiently, we use a trunk-based development model for changes to our codebase. Once an engineer’s code change has been accepted into the main branch (the trunk), we strive to make it visible quickly to every other engineer working on that product or service. This trunk-based development model is more effective than the use of feature branches and feature merges because it enables everyone to work on the latest version of the codebase. But…
