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 [...]

How Educators Are Using Big Data To Improve Their Work

As an educator, you're always looking for ways in which you can improve your work, and help your students succeed. One way that educators are working on this right now is with big data. With the application of data science, educators can spot patterns and help students get the most out of their time in class. Here are just a few ways that big data is being used in education right now. Read more [...]

ON THE WORLDWIDE ASBESTOS THE CUTTING EDGE

The properties of asbestos in terms of resistance and insulating against all type of agents and its relatively low cost of exploitation, explain the extensive industrial applications reinforcing all sort of materials. With mechanical strength, asbestos fibers decompose at high temperatures, do not dissolve in water or evaporate into the air in which It can remain transported over long distances. It cannot be degraded to other composites, and remain virtually unchanged forever, according to its etymological Greek-rooted name. Read more [...]

DRM Radio – the Best Digital Radio for All Broadcast Bands 

– the digital terrestrial broadcasting. As opposed to the linear transmission of sound in analog, digital radio uses compressed digital signals for radio terrestrial broadcasts. As analog signals suffer from quality loss due to signal interference and obstructions, the digital radio, on the other hand, offers an excellent audio quality.   Read more [...]
