Solar-energy paradigm for generating singular nanomaterials

The solar paradigm of creating singular nanomaterials that possess unprecedented photonic, tribological, electronic, and catalytic properties is arguably far less familiar than the energy-saving paradigms of solar photovoltaics and solar thermal systems. Much of the research in this field has evolved over the past decade from our collaborations (i.e., between researchers at Ben-Gurion University of the Negev and the Weizmann Institute of Science, Israel). Although the first fullerenes (hollow closed-cage nanostructures) and nanotubes were made from pure carbon, in the 1990s it was realized that a rich landscape of inorganic candidates—made from compounds that possess comparably layered crystal structures (see Figure 1)—should also exist.1 These compounds have strong covalent bonds within the plane, and weak interplane van der Waals forces that become relatively insignificant at high temperature (where thermal fluctuations can shear, bend, and fold molecular sheets into fullerene-like and tubular nanostructures).1 The first non-carbon success stories were tungsten disulfide (WS2) and molybdenum disulfide (MoS2), produced via pulsed-laser ablation and high-temperature chemistry in...

Amazon, together with singer Lady Gaga, launched a beauty line Haus Laboratories. The first major beauty

Amazon, together with singer Lady Gaga, launched a beauty line Haus Laboratories. The first major beauty brand sold exclusively on Amazon. Pushed by the Amazon marketing efforts on Prime Day, the brand became the number one best-seller in the Makeup category by the end of the event. Prime Day was only pre-sale; products started to ship on September 17th. On that day the brand added additional items, which too by the end of the day became best-sellers. Nine out of the top 100 best selling products in Makeup were by Haus Laboratories, and the eyeliner was the number one best-seller. Makeup is a category inside of Beauty & Personal Care department. The top Haus Laboratories products on July 15th, Prime Day, as well as September 17th, the day preorders shipped, were not only best-sellers in Makeup, but were in the top 10 of the whole Beauty department. A department which otherwise includes tens of millions of products. The eyeliner became a best-seller because Amazon featured it prominently on the homepage as well as the app. On Prime Day, Haus Laboratories had a 30-minute long video segment repeated a few times during the real-time video stream, was part of Prime Day Launches s...

Best flask 2019: The best vacuum flasks to keep drinks and food hot all day

A Thermos isn’t just for Christmas. Our top seven vacuum flasks keep their contents freezing cold in summer as well as piping in winter We’ll stop using “Thermos” as a generic term now. After all, Thermos is just one of many brands to master the art and science of the vacuum flask, that ingenious insulated container that does the job of a portable kettle, oven or fridge without the need of a plug socket. Whether it’s a chunky “food flask”, sleek “vacuum bottle” or something in between, the job of a flask is to keep food and drink hot or cold without leaking, all day long. Some of the winners on our list can insulate for more than 24 hours, which is long enough to survive the toughest hike or most gruelling commute. For this review we’ve picked out seven flasks that excel at insulation, leak-proof seals, durability (no shattering in a single drop, thank you) and, of course, value for money. Before we reveal our list, here’s a quick shopping guide. Flasks have come a long way since your great-grandmother sent her man off to work with a Thermos of oxtail soup. Today’s best vacuum flasks are mini engineering marvels,...

More kratom recalled; health officials and enthusiasts still disagree on dangers

Zakah Life of Ankeny, IA, is the latest company to join those recalling kratom products after they tested positive for Salmonella, according to a company notice posted by the FDA. “The potential for contamination was noted after laboratory testing revealed the presence of Salmonella in some packages of Super Green Maeng Da Kratom powder, Red Powder Vein Bali Kratom powder, Super Green Maeng Da Premium Kratom capsules, and Powerful Red Vein Bali Premium Kratom capsules.” At least 199 people from 41 states have been infected in an ongoing Salmonella outbreak traced to kratom products, with 38 percent of the ill people having been hospitalized, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. On July 3 the Food and Drug Administration released a statement about its investigation into kratom products in general. An advocacy group, the American Kratom Association, has been increasingly critical of the FDA’s position on kratom. The group issued a news release Aug. 16 requesting a meeting with FDA Commissioner Scott Gottlieb. Several companies have already recalled dozens of kratom products between them because they tested positive for Salmonella. Kratom is a plant consume...

Poultry Processing Equipment Market Size Expanding with Flourishing Animal Farming Industry

In the wake of Industry 4.0, wherein all the industries are traversing towards a technological transition, poultry farming is also wading its way towards the digital regime when poultry processing equipment is altered with automation. Even though the emerging trend has not gained prominence across the globe, poultry farming firms are indeed gradually realizing the need for leveraging technology for higher efficiency.

Recycling isn’t just good for the environment, it can boost your bank balance too. As a

Recycling isn’t just good for the environment, it can boost your bank balance too. As a number of companies now offer incentives to recycle, your junk may be worth more than you think There are now many ways to cut down on the landfill waste you produce and make money at the same time. We have taken a look at some of the most common – and surprising – possibilities. H&M’s Garment Collecting programme is a global initiative that aims to prevent unwanted clothes from going to landfill.  The high street chain accepts any brand of unwanted clothes in any condition, as well as old duvet covers and sheets. If you hand in a bag of old clothes at the cash desk in any H&M store, you’ll receive a £5 voucher to use in store or online. All the clothes collected by H&M are either reused or recycled – nothing goes to landfill. Another option is M&S and Oxfam’s ‘Shwopping’ scheme. If you take a bag of unwanted clothes containing at least one M&S item to an Oxfam shop, the charity will give you a £5 M&S voucher to use when you spend at least £35 on clothing, homeware and beauty products. If your car is no longer roadworthy or economical to repair, you could sell it for ...

It was my father’s first death anniversary on Monday, and someone asked if I would have

It was my father’s first death anniversary on Monday, and someone asked if I would have a “babang-luksa,” an ending of the Filipino mourning period. I explained that I couldn’t yet, because my mother had died three months after my father. A babang-luksa would have to be in June at the earliest, and I’ll explain that qualifier later. This babang-luksa is marked by a meal with close relatives and friends, and an end to the use of mourning apparel, which used to be black clothing. These days though, with black having become a chic fashionable color, the color’s association with mourning has disappeared. The original purpose of having a mourning period was to express filial piety, marked by displays of sorrow, pain and sacrifice (no haircuts, at one time!). Times change: The black apparel gave way a long time ago to a small black cloth patch, which was further reduced to a black plastic pin and, lately for many people, no patch or pin at all. The colors are really arbitrary, assigned by culture. Many families in the Philippines, my own included, use white for funerals rather than black, white being the “correct” color for mourning in China, and also a way to deemphasize the gloom o...
