Text2App: A FRAMEWORK THAT CREATES ANDROID APPS FROM TEXT DESCRIPTIONS
Researchers at Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology (BUET) and University of California- Los Angeles (UCLA) recently developed a framework that can create Android applications from text descriptions. This new app was presented in a paper pre-published on arXiv.
RESEARCHERS DEVELOP PROTOTYPE OF ROBOTIC DEVICE TO PICK, TRIM BUTTON MUSHROOMS
Researchers in Penn State’s College of Agricultural Sciences have developed a robotic mechanism for mushroom picking and trimming and demonstrated its effectiveness for the automated harvesting of button mushrooms.
STUDIES SHOW PROMISE USING DRONES TO ELICIT EMOTIONAL RESPONSES
As drones become more ubiquitous in public spaces, researchers at Ben-Gurion University of the Negev (BGU) have conducted the first studies examining how people respond to various emotional facial expressions depicted on a drone, with the goal of fostering greater social acceptance of these flying robots.
🗞 PHYSICS NEWS⚙♨:
RESEARCHERS LEARN HOW SWIMMING DUCKS BALANCE WATER PRESSURE IN THEIR FEATHERS WHILE DIVING
A team of students working with Jonathan Boreyko, associate professor in mechanical engineering at Virginia Tech, has discovered the method ducks use to suspend water in their feathers while diving, allowing them to shake it out when surfacing. The discovery opens the door for applications in marine technology. Findings were published in ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces.
PROFESSOR WORKS TO MAXIMIZE EFFICIENCY OF SOLAR LIGHT PIPES
If you have witnessed the rainbow pattern that dances on the surface of a CD or DVD, then you have seen diffraction at work. The disk acts as a diffraction grating, an optical element that disperses light into various colors or wavelengths.
A BETTER LOOK AT HOW PARTICLES MOVE
If you take a bucket of water balloons and jostle one of them, the neighboring balloons will respond as well. This is a scaled-up example of how collections of cells and other deformable particle packings respond to forces. Modeling this phenomenon with computer simulations can shed light on questions about how cancer cells invade healthy tissue or how leaves and flowers grow. But the behavior of cell aggregates is extremely complex, and fully capturing their structure and dynamics has proved tricky.
🗞 EARTH NEWS🌏:
WORLD’S LAKES LOSING OXYGEN RAPIDLY AS PLANET WARMS
Oxygen levels in the world’s temperate freshwater lakes are declining rapidly—faster than in the oceans—a trend driven largely by climate change that threatens freshwater biodiversity and drinking water quality.
DEAD ZONES FORMED REPEATEDLY IN NORTH PACIFIC DURING WARM CLIMATES, STUDY FINDS
An analysis of sediment cores from the Bering Sea has revealed a recurring relationship between warmer climates and abrupt episodes of low-oxygen “dead zones” in the subarctic North Pacific Ocean over the past 1.2 million years.
🗞 ASTRONOMY & SPACE NEWS🌪🎇:
ASTRONOMERS DISCOVER A MASSIVE STAR CLUSTER, OF INTERMEDIATE AGE, IN THE CONSTELLATION SCUTUM
An international team of astrophysicists led by the Stellar Astrophysics Group of the University of Alicante (UA), the Instituto de Astrofísica de Canarias (IAC), and the University of Valparaíso (Chile) has discovered a massive cluster of stars of intermediate age in the direction of the Scutum constellation. This object, which has been named Valparaíso 1, lies some seven thousand light years away from the Sun, and contains at least fifteen thousand stars. To detect it, observations have been combined from ESA’s Gaia satellite, and various ground-based telescopes, including the Isaac Newton Telescope at the Roque de los Muchachos Observatory (Garafía, La Palma, Canary Islands). The result has been published in Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society (MNRAS).
WHAT IF THE BLACK HOLE AT THE CENTER OF THE MILKY WAY IS ACTUALLY A MASS OF DARK MATTER?
A team of researchers at the International Center for Relativistic Astrophysics has found evidence that suggests Sagittarius A* is not a massive black hole but is instead a mass of dark matter. In their paper published in the journal Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society: Letters, the group describes the evidence they found and how it has stood up to testing.
🗞 NANOTECHNOLOGY NEWS⛄☃:
HEXAGONAL BORON NITRIDE’S REMARKABLE TOUGHNESS UNMASKED
It’s official: Hexagonal boron nitride (h-BN) is the iron man of 2D materials, so resistant to cracking that it defies a century-old theoretical description engineers still use to measure toughness.
BLOOD CLOT-BUSTING NANOCAPSULES COULD REDUCE EXISTING TREATMENT’S SIDE EFFECTS
Tested on human blood in the lab, the selective nanocapsules could reduce the side effects of a major blood clot dissolving drug, which include bleeding on the brain. If confirmed with animal tests, the nanocapsules could also make the drug more effective at lower doses.
NEW METHOD DEVELOPED TO IMPROVE DURABILITY OF NANO-ELECTRONIC COMPONENTS, FURTHER SEMICONDUCTOR MANUFACTURING
University of South Florida researchers recently developed a novel approach to mitigating electromigration in nanoscale electronic interconnects that are ubiquitous in state-of-the-art integrated circuits. This was achieved by coating copper metal interconnects with hexagonal boron nitride (hBN), an atomically-thin insulating two-dimensional (2-D) material that shares a similar structure as the “wonder material” graphene.
