Noise pollution could be either harmful or annoying to humans and animals. As reported by WHO in 2011, “environmental noise leads to a disease burden that is only second in magnitude to that from air pollution.” Materials for noise control are in demand.
Phononic crystals (PCs) consist of periodic structures, which are engineered to manipulate acoustic wave propagation. Since PCs were first proposed by Kushwaha et al., much attention has been devoted to PCs because of their substantial applications in sound attenuation, absorber, etc. Continuously graded phononic crystals (CGPCs) are special types of PCs with continuously graded structures, which ...
The RoboGuts™ S.T.E.A.M. Education Program
Give a child a toy, they're happy for an hour. Teach a child to build their own toys and they're happy for life!
I've seen some parents complain about the costs of STEM education programs in schools and how the various projects are robots that keep falling apart over and over so that the children spend too much time with assembly and re-assembly and not learning real STEM.
The RoboGuts™ S.T.E.A.M. Education Program makes learning basic electronics and programming easier, more fun and much more affordable than any other STEM education program.
The RoboGuts™ ...

To help fitness enthusiasts, professional athletes, sports teams, and healthcare service recipients assess physical activity, we propose an electromyography (EMG) compression suit fitted with textile-embedded dry-contact surface electrode sensors. The ensemble assesses skeletal muscle activation timing, estimates force production, and evaluates the degree and rate of muscle fatigue. Unlike commercially available electromyograms that deploy problematic wet surface electrode sensors, the ensemble deploys textile-embedded electrodes that preclude skin irritation, eliminate the knowledge requisite of skeletal muscle topography, and delete the electrical wires that connect electrode sensors and the electromyogram. These refinements allow assessment of skeletal muscle activity without compromising a ...
While technology is constantly giving us new ways of doing things, there are some things that inflexibly stay the same. Take the good old cardboard box, for example: 90 percent of all products shipped are still sent using some type of cardboard packaging. So what do we do with all of it once items have been safely removed from their boxes? Unfortunately, we usually break down the boxes and toss them in recycling—but if we would just give it a little thought, the possibilities are almost endless. Cardboard can be bent, cut, painted, wrapped, and configured in almost any ...
As we all know, mosquitoes are carriers of all sort of undesirable things. Don’t need to remind you of the latent possible comeback of Sika virus to our lands as temperatures get warmer and the vector population increases. Hence we should fight back with all we've got and if we don’t have the tools we must create them for our safety and own good. This concept and design is an elastic band covered with a membrane impregnated with a special formula and some infrared light sources to attract mosquitoes and once near the warm and tasty membrane would provide ...
