Tefal’s Air Purifiers for Clean Air at Home

Air Pollution is standing on the brink of emergency level in most cities of India. This is affecting not only the air outside but our homes as well where we feel safe inside the closed doors of our abode. We tend to think of air pollution as something which is outside of our homes but the air inside our homes or offices can be more polluted than the air outside. There is no denying to the fact that outside pollution…

Facebook’s Role in a Democracy

Over the last several weeks, the social media giant Facebook has been on the hotseat for its dealings with a consulting firm called Cambridge Analytics.  Evidently, Facebook shared the data of more than 80 million of its users with the firm, which was working for the Trump election campaign at the time.  The details are rather murky and one’s view of this particular breach depends on one’s political affiliation.  So rather than get down into the mudpit to sling more…

Depression negatively impacts heart and stroke patients — ScienceDaily

Depression, even when undiagnosed, can have many negative effects on cardiovascular patients, including poor healthcare experiences, more use of healthcare resources and higher health costs, according to preliminary research presented at the American Heart Association’s Quality of Care and Outcomes Research Scientific Sessions 2018, a premier global exchange of the latest advances in quality of care and outcomes research in cardiovascular disease and stroke for researchers, healthcare professionals and policymakers. About one-fifth of cardiovascular disease patients suffer from depression. “While…

Unusual particle interactions open up new possibilities in exotic materials — ScienceDaily

When you plug in an appliance or flip on a light switch, electricity seems to flow instantly through wires in the wall. But in fact, the electricity is carried by tiny particles called electrons that slowly drift through the wires. On their journey, electrons occasionally bump into the material’s atoms, giving up some energy with every collision. The degree to which electrons travel unhindered determines how well a material can conduct electricity. Environmental changes can enhance conductivity, in some cases…

Certain immune cells behave differently in HIV-infected patients than they do in healthy individuals — ScienceDaily

A team of chemical and biomedical engineers from the Cockrell School of Engineering at The University of Texas at Austin, in collaboration with researchers from the University of Pennsylvania, have discovered that HIV-infected patients experience a dysfunction in a certain type of immune cell: the follicular helper T (Tfh) cell. In a paper published today in Science Immunology, the authors outline how, through combining a sophisticated sequencing technique with a mass cytometry method (the measurement of cell characteristics), they discovered…

MU researcher studies impact of interruptions on nurses’ work

Jung Hyup Kim (rear), an assistant professor of Industrial and Manufacturing Systems Engineering at the University of Missouri, and his team of students — including Ph.D. student Wenbin Guo, recently traveled to the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn., to study just how these kinds of brief interruptions affected nurses in their emergency department.
