Cobalt

IMDEA Nanociencia & various European Centers’ researchers have found out that integration of cobalt with graphene provides relevant characteristics in magnetism’s field. This advancement lead to the creation of novel logic devices, which can retain large amounts of data rapidly along with decreased consumption of energy. A new technology for digitally encrypting data is spin orbitronics. It not just uses electron’s charge & its spin but even the spin’s interaction

Forgetting

With the help of neuroimaging, researchers at University of Texas at Austin conclude that forgetting about something uses more brain power than trying to remember it. The discovery was released in the Journal of Neuroscience. It explains that to forget about an unpleasant/unwanted experience, more attention should be given to it. The finding goes beyond before research on intentional forgetting that concentrated on decreasing focus to the non-essential information with

Afternoon Napping

Researcher Manolis Kallistratos & colleagues discovered that individuals who took afternoon napping have more chances to experience a decrease in blood pressure as compared to individuals who didn’t take an afternoon siesta. Afternoon napping was found to decrease blood pressure to a similar extent as consuming a pill for high blood pressure. The results will be presented at the forthcoming American College of Cardiology’s Annual Scientific Session in March in

Robotic Leg

University of Southern California’s researchers have designed a robotic leg that learns to walk by itself through trial & error, pretty much like an animal. USC Viterbi School of Engineering’s research team feel that they are the first to develop a leg inspired by animal-like tendons. The robotic leg can gain its balance after being tripped so that it doesn’t fall. The robot was never programmed to recover its footing.

HIV Treatment

A clinical trial conducted at four National Institutes of Health funded Centers for AIDS Research all over the US shows that over eighty percent of people who started HIV treatment immediately after its detection retained viral suppression after forty-eight weeks. Individuals who were a part of the clinical trial, known as iENGAGE attained suspension of virus in an average of only sixty-three days. The results were shown in a poster

Data Centers

In recent news, Microsoft is proud to announce that they have started their first African data centers in two locations – Johannesburg & Cape Town. This is done to offer South Africa with rapid access to Azure Cloud. The latest canters will be the firm’s first in the area after Huawei, who recently introduced their cloud service available in Johannesburg. It also shows that for the first time that Microsoft

Security

Violation of data revealing important & secretive information of firm is increasing. McAfee’s recent research discloses that plenty of employees are worried that they may be the reason for data leakage or cyber-attacks. Out of all the people who were surveyed, at least twenty-one percent of employees expressed their concern that they may end up doing something in office which may lead to violation of security. They also expressed fear

Heart Failure

Massachusetts General Hospital’s researchers’ team has discovered that activity of an essential signaling pathway grows with aging & heart failure. The report was released in Science Translational Medicine. In which they explained proof from animal & humans models that boosted activin type II receptor activity corresponds with increased heart failure. It states that restraining ActRII may help to enhance cardiac function in mouse models. Jason Roh’s Explanation on Role of

Micro Robots

Researchers have used the new nanofabrication methods to develop bug-shaped micro robots that can walk, stay in rough climate, wirelessly powered, and small in size to be injected via a standard hypodermic needle. Marc Miskin came up with nanofabrication methods with his colleagues Paul McEuen, Alejandro Cortese, and Itai Cohen. He says that when he was a child, he remembers looking in a microscope and observing everything that was going

Huawei Technologies

On Thursday, Huawei Technologies filed a case against the U.S. government claiming that a regulation restricting its business in the United States was unconstitutional. Thereby, increasing its fight back against the government, persistent in its efforts to shut the firm out of global markets. The firm explains that they filed a complaint in Texas in a federal court objecting Section 889 of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA). In August,
