The Environmental Effects of Deodorant and Its Production

Traditional production of deodorant involves chemical preservatives and compounds detrimental to the environment. Many deodorant manufacturers are moving away from using these ingredients. Instead, they are exploring all-natural alternatives. This enables deodorant manufacturers to provide eco-friendly products. Plus, it helps these manufacturers stand out from rivals.   Read more [...]

Why the naked ape really has pubic hair

The evolutionary origin of pubic hair in humans remains a diverting puzzle. Why, uniquely among the apes—and all other mammals—do we have a patch of hair in the pubic region but little elsewhere? The other great apes have less hair there than we have, so our evolution of hairlessness, evidently in parallel with our evolution of upright bipedalism, calls attention to the counterintuitive gain of pubic hair.

Black holes as rejuvenating systems of the universe

Jets from the black holes in the centers of some galaxies are well documented by astronomical observations. The mechanism that forms these jests is not well-understood yet. We extended the mass-energy equivalence principle to the universal space where a given physical object diminishes the energy density of space in its center exactly for the amount of its energy. In today’s physics is understood that universal space is a type of energy often named “superfluid quantum space”. Read more [...]

What attributes might doctoral graduates need to contribute to the world of the future? A ‘modest’ reflection

Change is an enduring feature of our modern lives. As the climate crisis, the ongoing wars, the COVID pandemic, the global movement for social justice, and the emerging developments in artificial intelligence have shown, change may be very sudden or creep up on us, but it is often disruptive. We can expect future societal disruptions that impact the way we work, interact, and think. This uncertainty is a challenge for all. How can we prepare future generations for an unknown and constantly changing future? Read more [...]

Self Sovereign Identity can do just fine, blockchain-less

Authentication is the big problem on the Internet. There is no portable authentication layer in the Internet protocol, like phone number portability between phone providers. This has been a problem since the beginning: how do you prove that a user or other entity is who they say they are? Authentication is also the basis for the term SSI or self sovereign identity, popular in policy documents today. How can you control your own online identity? And at least as important: how can you ensure that others do not abuse it? Read more [...]

5 Reasons Why Mobile Technology Can Provide Better Patient Care

It doesn’t take an in-depth look at the healthcare industry today to observe a large increase in application and implementation of various technologies. From robotic surgical arms to a tablet device utilized in virtually every doctor’s visit to capture patient health data in real time, there’s no question that technology is becoming deeply entrenched in how healthcare is administered. This can create a number of substantial benefits for both patients and for medical professionals alike. One of the largest categories of technological implementation in healthcare is that of mobile technology, or the ways that mobile smart devices and similar can be used to propel patient care. Here are a few ways that mobile technology is changing the game for healthcare provision and the patient experience. Read more [...]
