Trade War

Two of the World’s largest economies dove deeper into a trade war post Beijing’s move on including US$ 60 billion of products from the United States in its import tariff list. This was in retaliation for President Trump’s planned charges on Chinese goods worth US$ 200 billion. Tariffs on Chinese products would begin from 10 percent and increase to 20 percent by 2019. Partly relying on Section 301 of the

Antimicrobial Disinfectants

Eco-friendly household cleaners or multi-surface cleaners may alter gut microflora in children making them overweight, according to a recent study published in the Canadian Medical Association Journal. Canadian researchers’ recent find revealed that infants in households that use antimicrobial disinfectants once a week are likely to have high level of Lachnospiraceae bacteria at ages 3-4 months than those living in households that do not frequently use antimicrobial disinfectants. Children with

Electrofuels

Mitigating adverse consequences of air pollution has been a major focus of scientists. Rising percentage of CO2 in Earth’s atmosphere has accelerated research activities involved in conversion of CO2 to renewable energy sources. Research on CO2 conversion is not only focused upon generating electrofuels but also other value added chemicals including ethanol, propane and ethylene in a cost effective manner. However, scientists found it difficult to understand exact structure of

Intermolecular Bonds

Chemists from RUDN University recently initiated an in-depth analysis on nature of chlorine and nitrogen intermolecular bonds in molecules of azo dyes in a bid to define photochromic properties of azo molecules. The results and analysis is published in the Dyes and Pigments Journal, which reveal significance of halogen and hydrogen intermolecular bonds in stabilizing structure of dyes. The insights and conclusions provided in the research can be used for

Consumer Data Tracking

Routine Consumer Data Tracking habits has been one of the primary tasks of companies such as Facebook. Several forms of trackers such as cookies have been leveraged by companies for keeping track of the surf history, which in turn aids them in analyzing the individual’s choices as they jump through websites. Concerns arise among consumers with regard to their fake digital profiles being created. Video, and news websites, along with

Aspirin

Regular use of aspirin among the geriatric population may not alleviate the risk of cardiovascular disease and cancer, according to a new research published in the New England Journal of Medicine. The study, known as the ASPREE, was jointly conducted by Monash University in Melbourne and the US Berman Centre for Outcomes and Clinical Research. The study took nearly five years to arrive at the findings. Healthcare experts are of

Time Magazine

The 20th century’s preeminent weekly newsmagazine, Time Magazine, will soon have a new abode as it is being sold by the Meredith Corp. to Salesforce.com’s co-founder Marc Benioff along his wife. The popularity of Time has prevailed in light of its unique storytelling with regard to issues & people that connect as well as affect the global population. This definitive agreement to sell Time media brand to Benioffs is evaluated

Renesas

Japan’s Renesas Electronics Corp has, in a latest statement, said that the company has agreed upon a deal to buy Integrated Device Technology Inc. for $6.7 bn. This marks the second notable acquisition for Renesas as the company looks to dive deeper into the field of semiconductors for driver-free or self-driving vehicles. As for the U.S. chip company, the deal highlights the intense level of competition among international chipmakers as

CRISPR-Cas 9

A team of researchers from University of Utah has discovered that nucleosomes can hinder CRISPR-Cas 9 cleavage productivity. A paper published by the team of researchers in Proceedings of the National Academy of Science, the team talks about testing the gene editing on yeast samples. The paper consists of the final results and their findings about the test on the yeast. The gene editing technique mentioned above utilizes RNA to

Solar Cells

Researchers have created some latest chemical engineering methods for delivering high-efficiency solar cells materials. The perovskites formula apparently appears to be fool-proof. Consolidation the three fundamental elements – iodide, lead, and methyl ammonium in any number of ways, one can obtain the similar key material. Notwithstanding, slight changes at different phases of the perovskite creation process can modify the material’s characteristics. Presently, researchers have figured out how to make perovskites
