Family Portraits is a project by Greek photographer Maria Mavropoulou that explores the role Internet-connected devices now play in our everyday lives.“The screens of the connectible devices we use are the only way we can have access to this parallel man-made universe, the Internet,” Mavropoulou writes in a statement about the project. “Our lives have changed, from the simplest
When a car hits something crossing the road in a dark, rural setting, it can occasionally be difficult for the driver to later say if it was a person or an animal – that, or they may just lie and say it was the latter.

The influenza virus as proven to be a very tricky foe to fight. Now, researchers at EPFL in Switzerland have developed synthetic molecules that can kill the flu virus by mimicking human cells, and putting the squeeze on the virus when it attaches itself to the decoy.Continue ReadingCategory: Medical, ScienceTags: Influenza, Virus, EPFL, Molecules, Drug, Drug delivery
Even after decades of research and expansive global vaccination strategies, seasonal influenza still kills hundreds of thousands of people every year. The virus’s ability to mutate and evade our vaccines means we are constantly chasing the latest strains circulating in the population.Continue ReadingCategory: Medical, ScienceTags: Influenza, Vaccines, Mount Sinai Hospital, Virus, The Immune Syste

Researchers at Leiden University in the Netherlands have created what’s probably the world’s smallest boat. Measuring just 30 microns long, the tiny model was 3D printed as part of a project investigating how to make synthetic “microswimmers” in complex shapes.Continue ReadingCategory: 3D Printing, TechnologyTags: 3D Printing, Microscopes, Leiden University, Boat, World's Smallest is a social bookmarking place where you can share, find & discuss the best news around on most topics.
