Chemical manufacturers consume a massive amount of energy each year separating and refining feedstocks to make a wide variety of products including gasoline, plastics and food.In a bid to reduce the amount of energy used in chemical separations, researchers at the Georgia Institute of Technology are working on membranes that could separate chemicals without using energy-intensive distillation processes."The vast majority of separations out in the field in a variety of industries are thermally-driven systems such as distillation, and because of that we spend an inordinate amount of energy on these separation processes - something like 10 to 15 percent of the global energy budget is spent on chemical separations," said Ryan Lively, an associate professor in Georgia Tech's School of Chemical & Biomolecular Engineering."Separations that avoid the use of heat and a chemical phase-change are much less energy intense.Plastic membranes are already able to separate certain molecules based on size and other differences, such as in seawater desalination.In a study published July 18 in Chemistry of Materials and sponsored by the Department of Defense and the National Science Foundation, the researchers outline a process for taking a polymer-based membrane and infusing it with a metal oxide network.

Ford is planning to lay off 12,000 workers across Europe, the company announced on Thursday.Ford says it will reduce the number of manufacturing facilities in Europe from 24 at the beginning of 2019 to 18 at the end of 2020.Ford will be closing plants in South Wales and France and three in Russia.Ford is also selling a Slovakian plant to Magna.The 12,000 workers represent a bit less than 20% of Ford's 65,000-person European workforce.Ford says that most job reductions will be voluntary separations.
Advanced nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) techniques at the U.S. Department of Energy's Ames Laboratory have revealed surprising details about the structure of a key group of materials in nanotechology, mesoporous silica nanoparticles (MSNs), and the placement of their active chemical sites.With possible applications in catalysis, chemical separations, biosensing, and drug delivery, MSNs are the focus of intense scientific research."Research has explored doing this through modifying particle size and shape, pore size, and by deploying various organic functional groups on their surfaces to accomplish the desired chemical tasks.However, understanding of the results of these synthetic efforts can be very challenging."Ames Laboratory scientist Marek Pruski explained that despite the existence of different techniques for MSNs' functionalization, no one knew exactly how they were different.In particular, atomic-scale description of how the organic groups were distributed on the surface was lacking until recently.
Socialism schmocialism—I've never minded redistributing a bit of wealth to help a creator realize their dreams (or cover a few medical bills).RIP my inbox: Hey, we just added a new stretch goal!Hey, if you upgrade your pledge, we'll be so close to unlocking another pledge goal!Even when the fund-raising's done, the alerts linger, like a clingy friend at night's never-ending end.Oh, I just wanted to let you know I'm thinking of you, dear backer.Well, I'm thinking of you too, dear creator—increasingly murderous thoughts.
Metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) are versatile compounds hosting nano-sized pores in their crystal structure.Because of their nanopores, MOFs are now used in a wide range of applications, including separating petrochemicals, mimicking DNA, and removing heavy metals, fluoride anions, hydrogen, and even gold from water.Gas separation in particular is of great interest to a number of industries, such as biogas production, enriching air in metal working, purifying natural gas, and recovering hydrogen from ammonia plants and oil refineries."The flexible 'lattice' structure of metal-organic frameworks soaks up gas molecules that are even larger than its pore window making it difficult to carry out efficient membrane-based separation," says Kumar Varoon Agrawal, who holds the GAZNAT Chair for Advanced Separations at EPFL Valais Wallis.Now, scientists from Agrawal's lab have greatly improved the gas separation by making the MOF lattice structure rigid.They did this by using a novel "post-synthetic rapid heat treatment" method, which basically involved baking a popular MOF called ZIF-8 (zeolitic imidazolate framework 8) at 360 C for a few seconds.

50 women who say they were sexually abused as victims of a sex marketplace called Backpage are suing Salesforce.They allege the San francisco software company, known for its actions on civil rights, helped Backpage run its business by providing software and consulting services.50 women who say they were sexually abused as victims of a sex marketplace called Backpage are suing the software company they say helped Backpage run its business: Salesforce.Backspace became notorious in the spring of 2018, when the online website, known for its sex ads that included offering women and children, pled guilty to human trafficking charges in Texas.In April, 2018, US authorities seized the site's assets and shut it down.Salesforce designed and implemented a heavily customized enterprise database tailored for Backpage's operations, both locally and internationally.
CORVALLIS, Ore. - Nanosized cages may play a big role in reducing energy consumption in science and industry, and machine-learning research at Oregon State University aims to accelerate the deployment of these remarkable molecules.The porous organic cage molecules being studied at OSU are able to selectively capture gas molecules, potentially enabling huge energy savings in the myriad gas separations conducted in the chemical sector."These porous molecular solids are like sponges that soak up gases discriminately," said Cory Simon, assistant professor of chemical engineering and corresponding author of a study published in ACS Central Science.Together, the separation and purification of chemical mixtures is responsible for more than 10 percent of the world's energy consumption."But each cage adsorbs certain gases more readily than others, and this property potentially makes the cages useful for separating gas mixtures more energy-efficiently," Simon said.However, there are thousands of these cage molecules that could be synthesized - to make even one of them and test its properties takes months in the lab - and hundreds of different chemical separations are required in industry; hence the need for a computational approach to sort through the possibilities and find the best molecule for the job at hand.
Early on in Mortal Engines, the forthcoming movie based on Philip Reeve's book, a small Bavarian population gets consumed by the moving metropolis of "London."(The movie, like the book, is set in a future where roving "predator cities" ingest smaller towns for their resources.)As its citizens are forced to resettle in their new home, voices on loudspeakers tell them where to go and what to do.But then there's this one: "Be aware, children may be temporarily separated from parents."But earlier this year, as the Trump administration's zero-tolerance immigration policy led to detentions and child-separations at the southern US border, the loudspeaker announcement found its way in.The movie, says director Christian Rivers, isn't meant to be a "message film," but since it deals with life after a catastrophic war and the ever-repeating cycle of human nature, the line seemed fitting, and adding it amounted to little more than an extra voiceover.
The center, also known by its initials CADMIM, has two sites -- one at UIC and another at the University of California, Irvine -- and focuses on developing miniature devices that can perform biochemical analytical functions quickly and cheaply.These devices can be used to do things like rapidly detect dangerous toxins in the blood, quickly screen hundreds of potential drugs, isolate cells for in cancer diagnostics and treatment, or provide information on plant health that can be used to improve crop outputs.The UIC site has expertise in microfluidics, cell separations, 3D printing and point-of-care sensors, as well as in creating tiny living model "organ-on-a-chip" systems.The total funding for the two-site center is $1.25 million, and is a second phase of investment in the CADMIM, which launched five years ago with a $836,000 grant from the NSF."In the last five years, CADMIM researchers have worked with industry leaders to provide customized solutions using advanced microfluidics technology," said Ian Papautsky, the Richard and Loan Hill Professor of Bioengineering in the UIC College of Engineering and leader of the UIC CADMIM site."We look forward to bringing more industry partners on board, working with them to advance microfluidics technology and develop solutions to their needs, and also to providing unique internship opportunities to our grad students through these partnerships."
When a part is welded to a vehicle's frame, it's reasonably expected that said part will remain welded to that vehicle.But when it doesn't, as is the case with certain Jeep Wranglers, it's time for a recall.Fiat Chrysler is set to issue a voluntary recall for an unspecified number of 2018-2019 Jeep Wrangler JL SUVs.Since many of these vehicles remain on dealership lots, the automaker has issued a stop-sale for affected vehicles still in dealer possession, according to documents posted to the JL Wrangler Forum.Representatives for Fiat Chrysler did not immediately return a request for comment, but the automaker confirmed to both Jalopnik and The Drive that the recall is real and that official communication is forthcoming.Evidently, some of the recalled Wranglers might have been constructed with an improper weld connecting the front track bar to the frame, which in certain situations could cause the track bar to separate from the frame.

In the wake of a newly-announced partnership between Apple and Salesforce, Salesforce founder and CEO Marc Benioff seems to have had a change of heart about Apple's CEO Tim Cook.He publicly thanked Cook for his work on "gender equality" — after previously condemning him for not doing enough on that exact same issue.Benioff also seemed to acknowledge Salesforce's own recent missteps regarding its contract to serve US Customs and Border Protection (CBP).On stage at during Benioff's keynote at Salesforce's enormous Dreamforce tech conference taking place this week in San Francisco, Benioff said:"Thank you to Apple for becoming a strategic partner.You are somebody in our industry we all can follow."

ANN ARBOR--As much as 100 times more heat than predicted by the standard radiation theory can flow between two nanoscale objects, even at bigger-than-nanoscale distances, researchers at the University of Michigan and the College of William and Mary have reported in the journal Nature.The new results could have implications for better solar cells, materials that behave like one-way valves for heat flow and perhaps even a heat-based computing platform.It seemed like our calculations based on the standard Planck theory couldn't account for what we observed," said the study's first author, Dakotah Thompson, who at the time was a new graduate student in Reddy's lab.Heat travels between objects as electromagnetic waves, such as infrared radiation and visible light.Previously, Reddy and Meyhofer had led a study showing that heat can travel 10,000 times faster than expected between objects separated by nanoscale gaps--smaller than the dominant wavelength of the radiation--but at larger separations, that mechanism wouldn't be in play.To illustrate the concept, Reddy produced two cards from his wallet, laying one on his palm and the other across his fingers with a gap between them.
There are some great posters out there for Steven Spielberg’s Jaws.But really, nothing can touch the original.Roger Kastel’s iconic, terrifying image of a giant shark about to eat a swimmer has captivated the world since 1975, and continues to be the most recognisable (and sought after) image of the film.And while collectors could’ve easily purchased cheap reproductions of the poster anytime they liked, Mondo has decided to kick things up a notch.They recruited Kastel, the original artist behind the poster, and with his guidance, several other artists (Jason Edmiston on separations, Chris Billheimer on layout, and Bruce Yan on typography) worked to reproduce the poster as a limited-edition screenprint.There are two versions, the traditional poster as well as a (very slightly NSFW) art piece.
While denouncing the separation of migrant families as “inhumane,” chief executive officer Marc Benioff reportedly told employees that Salesforce will continue its contract with U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) because it’s technology isn’t involved in the CBP’s U.S.-Mexico border policies.Benioff’s internal memo, obtained by Bloomberg News, was in response to a recent petition signed by more than 650 Salesforce employees asking him to reexamine the deal in response to the Trump’s administration’s policy of separating migrant families at the border.On Tuesday, a federal judge issued an order to reunite families and end most separations.Salesforce has worked with the CPB since March, providing it with tools to manage staff recruiting and communication.Known for his outspoken public support of progressive causes, Benioff wrote in the memo that he is “opposed to separating children from their families at the border.I have personally financially supported legal groups helping families at the border.
At Fortune’s CEO Initiative event today, Tim Cook shared his opinion on a number of contentious issues, including immigration, political news and smartphone addiction.Here are some highlights from his conversation with Fortune executive editor Adam Lashinsky.On companies taking a stance on public policy and other politically charged issues, including the Trump administration’s separations of migrant families at United States-Mexico border, which Cook recently condemned as “inhumane”:“Apple is about changing the world.It became clear to me some number of years ago that you don’t do that by staying quiet on things that matter.Although there’s “no formula” dictating what Apple addresses publicly, Cook said the company considers “do we have a standing, do we have a right to talk about this issue?” For Apple, he said this means they “typically speak about education, privacy, about human rights, about immigration and the environment.”
