Researches Achieve Unprecedented Control of Polymer Grids

Synthetic polymers are found everywhere: nylon, polyester, Teflon, epoxy, and many others. They are composed of long and linear structures that easily tangle. Chemical engineers have for a long time been struggling to create a two-dimensional grid-like form of polymers but they have failed most of the times.

A trial of making such polymers came in the last decade in the name of covalent organic frameworks but the product was poor and the manufacturing process was hectic. A Northwestern University College is on the course of filling a century-long mystery by building the first successful COF has and control their development.

The researchers have a two-step development course that will lead to the production of natural polymers using crystalline, two-dimensional constructions. This will, in turn, allow chemical engineers to create new products that have amazing properties.

Low-quality COF’s have allowed for the enhanced use of polymers such as water purification, storing electrical energy and physique armor. Imagine what improved design polymers will be able to contribute to the world of synthetic polymers.

William Dichtel who is a professor of chemistry at North western’s Weinberg Faculty of Arts and Sciences has led the research.

The 2D COFs have long-lasting pores and excessive floors space as compared to the contemporary synthetic fibers. For the first time ever chemists have managed to design ordered 2D polymers that are arranged in repeating hexagonal shapes providing them utmost control over its properties.

With further research on the area still being done, scientists hope to create more structurally precise, layered macromolecular sheets that exhibit desirable mechanical, optoelectronic and molecular transport properties.

This unprecedented control of polymer grids is going to be crucial in developing more lasting and useful polymers that will go a long way in improving the way human beings use polymers.

How to Ensure a Successful Wellness Program with Wearable Technology?

Well, experts from the corporate wellness share merits and demerits of the wearable-based wellness programs and corporate health technology, along with the advice on enhancement and improvement of your organizations or company’s current fitness initiatives for employees.

Majority of companies may it be large or small are literary adopting programs on their employee wellness. This often challenges in their fitness and hence taking the wearable technologies advantage. These initiatives will basically help in increasing productivity, and minimize absenteeism and mostly lower costs on healthcare.

Nevertheless, these programs by the companies are subject to legal challenges, because there is always a possibility of improper implementation which when backfires, might change the scenario. Recently at San Francisco, a conference was held at Fitbit’s 2015 recent captivate, where various experts from different industries shared ways and tips, lessons learned and best practices they experience from the tied wearable wellness and fitness program.

In the multi-location conference which commenced in Chicago from 16 of September, about 130 participants attended. This conference was further pushed to 29 and finally ended on 13 October in New York. Below are some of the tips on ways to ensure a successful wellness program with the technology.

  1. Ensuring employees personal information is secure.

Emphasizing on this issue, organizations should assure the employees on securement of their personal data. Most employees generally hesitate in the production of personal data hence this organization should highly ensure employees’ personal data is secured.

  1. Going beyond and more so above in protecting employee’s data

This protection plans should basically take into account extraordinary measures in protection of sensitive information via collection with this wearable fitness and health programs.

  1. Stay up and ahead on relevant employee regulations

Companies and organization using these wearable programs should initiate clear data when it comes to issues related to ACA (Affordable care act) and more so potential compliance issues.

  1. Compare anonymous business goals and fitness data

This comparison makes it simpler for organizations to relate to employees abilities in performance when it comes to productivity.

  1. Do not overthink on the baseline
  2. Make it simple

This tips where collected and analyzed from the three conferences held by the different individuals and experts from different industries. Nevertheless, this tip would basically help To ensure a successful wellness program with the technology

Are we Alone in the Universe? A New Study Explains Why Fermi Paradox is Likely

Fermi Paradox may be true after all.

For years, the people’s resolve to find life outside the Planet Earth has driven them to stage space explorations and countless movies and books as well. But despite tremendous efforts exerted to find intelligent life form other than earth, all calls remain to be unanswered as of this writing.

Sadly, the calls may be left unanswered for a rather long time, if not forever.

A new research which reassess Fermi Paradox says that, “the possibility we’re the only one in the entire galaxy is way higher than assumed given the hugh number of possible home planets. The researchers found out that the chance humanity stands alone in the category of intelligent civilizations in our galaxy is 53%–99.6%, and across the observable universe is 39%–85”.

And thats not it another study by TechTimes concluded that, according to the information we have with us right now, there is a greater chance that humans are the only intelligent species in the observable universe or in the entire Milky Way at this very moment.

Fermi Paradox refers to “conflict between an expectation of a high probability of intelligent life elsewhere in the universe and the apparently lifeless universe we in fact observe.”  The paradox is named after physicist Enrico Fermi, who, in the middle of a discussion of scientists on alien, asked, “where is everybody?”

Fermi is also known as the “architect of the atomic bomb” and the “father of radioactivity research.”

Why Meeting a US President is the Ultimate Aim of the Kim Family?

This meeting is the ultimate aim of the Kim family which eluded his head of the family for nearly 2 decades ago. It this same meeting which also his grandfather never accomplished.

Summary of this meeting.

North Korean head of state Kim Jong is looking to long stand and achieve his grandfather and fathers urge and which this two never managed in accomplishing. It is specifically a meeting which his and his grandfather eluded over 2 decades ago
It is a great achievement to head of state Kim Jong family dynasty to have a face to face and a one on one talk with the president of the United States of America.
Both North Korea and United States of America officials are still laying all the summit groundwork between Kim Jong and Donald Trump, which is officially set to be held on the 12 the of June which will take place in Singapore.

According to the amid negotiations, conclusions and debates have been raged on what type of concessions which North Korea may extract from united states of America in denuclearization return or more so to what extent the Pyongyang would go in surrendering its own nuclear program. But immediately Trump and Kim stepped in this same room, experts concluded that North Korea already has cemented to the ground its own victory.

Jean H. Lee, North Korea expert based at Wilson center in the US told CNN said that, and I quote, “summit with the US president is what any country in the world would really aspire, for a small country which technically speaking is still at war with the US, for its head of state to share the same table with the US president is a big deal.

“My grandfather and father would incredibly be proud seeing that North Korea has progeny established a legitimate state with the US on the world stage.” Said head of state Kim Jong. But this meeting with US president has acted as a boost which will basically give Pyongyang new veneer and respectability. “this meeting represents the majority of things including, North Korea is a state, that all its leaders are world leaders and the state is accepted all over the world.” Jim Hoare, a former expert in the British charge d’affaires said.

Though it is nearly impossible to read the power dynamics of the North Korea regime on the outside world, Kim is a leader who is set a power base which will rule for decades.

Enzyme’s Accidental Research on Plastic Eating by Scientists

Scientists accidentally develop plastic-eating enzyme. The world of science is a surprise. Scientists are looking for something. Accidentally caught up. That is accidentally found, researched and useful for anything else. That is why we use many tools as a by-product (sub-product) of the research of scientists.
A similar development has now taken place at the University of Portsmouth, Britain, where scientists have accidentally developed a plastic-eating (enzyme) enzyme.
He studied the structure of natural enzymes discovered at the University of Portsmouth, Britain and the National Laboratory Waste Recycling Center for Renewable Energy. Scientists studying this have accidentally developed the enzyme eating plastic.
NREL’s chief researcher Greg Beckham has said that we have studied the structure of natural enzymes detected in the waste recycling center, but eventually discovered plastic eating enzymes in order to help in protein engineering.
The research will be helpful in the recycling of plastic bottles built by the pet, Portsmouth University of Britain said. The University of Portsmouth has stated that newly researched enzymes are the most helpful to dissolve polyethylene furandicarboxylate, or PEF.
