Research from Swansea University has found how plastics commonly found in food packaging can be recycled to create new materials like wires for electricity - and could help to reduce the amount of plastic waste in the future.While a small proportion of the hundreds of types of plastics can be recycled by conventional technology, researchers found that there are other things that can be done to reuse plastics after they've served their original purpose.The research, published in The Journal for Carbon Research, focuses on chemical recycling which uses the constituent elements of the plastic to make new materials.While all plastics are made of carbon, hydrogen and sometimes oxygen, the amounts and arrangements of these three elements make each plastic unique.Dr Alvin Orbaek White, a Sêr Cymru II Fellow at the Energy Safety Research Institute (ESRI) at Swansea University said: "Carbon nanotubes are tiny molecules with incredible physical properties.The structure of a carbon nanotube looks a piece of chicken wire wrapped into a cylinder and when carbon is arranged like this it can conduct both heat and electricity.
Researchers have looked at three decades of data and have found that there is another significant cause of coral reef bleaching in addition to warming waters due to global temperature increases.The study data looked at the Looe Key Reef in the lower Florida Keys and was conducted by Florida Atlantic University’s Harbor Branch Oceanographic Institute.The research shows that a warming planet isn’t the only issue.Scientists say that another issue that is contributing to coral reef bleaching is a planet that is being enriched with reactive nitrogen from multiple sources.Nitrogen levels are increasing from improperly treated sewage, fertilizers, and topsoils.The increase in nitrogen is causing phosphorus starvation in corals, reducing the temperature threshold for bleaching.

It’s easy to fall into the trap of believing dementia and Alzheimer’s disease are the inevitable outcome of growing old, but a new study says that isn’t the case.Despite having a genetic risk for the diseases, a newly published study found that certain healthy habits offset the risk, indicating that how you live life has a huge influence on whether dementia will ultimately be a part of it.The research comes from the University of Exeter and was recently presented at the Alzheimer’s Association International Conference 2019 in California.According to the study, people who had a genetic risk for developing dementia, but who also followed a healthy lifestyle, were a massive 32-percent less likely to develop the brain disease.In comparison, individuals who had a genetic risk for developing dementia and who also lead an ‘unfavorable lifestyle’ had nearly triple the chance of developing the disease compared to people with low genetic risks and healthy lifestyles.The findings are a startling example of how big of an impact lifestyle has on one’s long-term health outcomes.
For years, experts have pointed a finger at phones as a possible factor in depression and other mental health problems.A study published Monday from researchers at Montreal's Sainte-Justine Hospital found that increased social media and TV use predicts an increase in symptoms of depression in teenagers."Our research reveals that increased time spent using some forms of digital media in a given year predicts depressive symptoms within that same year," Patricia Conrod, the research team's lead said, in a press release on Monday.Conrod's team followed about 4,000 Canadian teenagers, aged 12 to 16 years, for four years.They specified the amount of time spent participating in four different types of screen activities: social media, television, video gaming and computer use.The study found that if teens reported increases that their social media use and television viewing, then their depression symptoms also increased.
Hulu's "The Act" cocreator Nick Antosca talked to Business Insider to discuss the rise of true crime in the streaming era, and its relationship to the horror genre."15 years ago, this show would not have been made, or would have been made as the TV movie of the week," Antosca said."The Blanchard story is so unique and specific that I don't know of another story offhand that checks those boxes," he said.Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories.Dee Dee lied to Gypsy for years about her health and age, falsely claiming that Gypsy suffered from multiple illnesses and even confined her to a wheelchair that she didn't need."When you're telling a true story, it's certainly valuable to have somebody collaborating on it who knows all the people and who has done the research," Antosca said of Dean.
Developing synthetic materials that are as dynamic as those found in nature, with reversibly changing properties and which could be used in manufacturing, recycling and other applications, is a strong focus for scientists.In a world-first, researchers from Queensland University of Technology (QUT), Ghent University (UGent) and Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) have pioneered a novel, dynamic, reprogrammable material - by using green LED light and, remarkably, darkness as the switches to change the material's polymer structure, and using only two inexpensive chemical compounds.The new dynamic material could potentially be used as a 3D printing ink to print temporary, easy-to-remove support scaffolds.This would overcome one of the current limitations of the 3D process to print free-hanging structures.The research is part of an ongoing international collaboration between QUT macromolecular chemist and Australian Research Council Laureate Fellow Professor Christopher Barner-Kowollik, Dr Hannes Houck, who recently completed his PhD across QUT, UGent and KIT, UGent Professor Filip Du Prez, and KIT's Dr Eva Blasco.Their findings have been published in the paper 'Light-Stabilized Dynamic Materials' in the Journal of the American Chemical Society (JACS).
The researchers want to use similar genetic patterns, which have been present in the blood of humans and animals for thousands of years, to improve computer-assisted disease prognosis.The research project is unusual for bioinformaticians not only because of the cooperation with the zoo.Instead of examining tissue and data from human patients, Keller and Eckart Meese, a human geneticist from Saarbrücken, analyzed blood samples from 21 animals.Zoo director Richard Francke had collected the blood during routine examinations between 2016 and 2018 and made it available to the scientists.In fact, these scientists normally investigate biomarkers that occur in human blood in order to identify lung tumors or diseases such as Alzheimer's and Parkinson's earlier and better.In order to find these sections, the researchers use modern bioinformatic methods, including machine learning, a method of artificial intelligence.
