Plant-Based Meats are Being Processed to Copy Real Meat

To date, protein is being made from a process that converts carbon dioxide into an ingredient that copies nutritional values found in animal protein and has been announced by the company, Air Protein. Their goal is to create microbe-derived protein for burgers and tacos, competing with Beyond Meat and Impossible Foods.

Air Protein is a startup company based in the Bay area.  They are introducing their version of air-based meat, using technology discovered by NASA back in the 60s when scientists were experimenting with ways to feed astronauts in space.

They discovered they could use microorganisms to convert carbon dioxide exhaled by astronauts and turn them into food.

Air Protein

Air Protein said their process is similar to processing yogurt.  It’s made in a closed fermenter where natural microbes consume carbon dioxide and what they refer to as a blend of “mineral nutrients” to create an ingredient that is 80% protein.

It’s believed to have the same nutritional value as meat but does not contain hormones or antibiotics. Air Protein also believes it has 2 times the protein found in soybeans. They said their process is different from Beyond Meat and Impossible foods that use protein made from soybeans and peas.

In a statement by Jeremy Ertl, spokesperson for Air Protein, this revolutionary new protein source will be able to make meatless burgers, protein-rich pasta, cereals, beverages, and so much more.

This new product developed by Air Protein is just one of the latest inventions in the field of alternative meats.  The goal is to transform the consumption of American food.  The market for plant-based foods has grown significantly by 11% over the past year.

According to the Plant-Based Foods Association, this new industry is bringing in a total of $4.5 billion to date.

 

There are already plant-based foods on the market including pasta, cauliflower, chickpea, pizza, oat mild, and meatless burgers.  Many of these products are already available in grocery stores and fast-food chains.

As of late, Burger King has announced they will add meatless Impossible Burgers in kids’ meals and chains like KFC, White Castle, and Del Toro are already carrying alternatives.

These products are high in demand, not just by consumers with food allergies but also among meat-eaters who are looking for alternatives for protein. Many consumers are looking for sustainable options in the diets.

According to data collected by a market research firm, NPD Group,  it shows that approximately 95% of consumers who bought a plant-based burger still eat meat.

Scientists Have Created a 3D-Printed Living Skin With Blood Vessels

Scientists developed a 3D-printed living skin in hopes of one day preventing the body from rejecting grafted tissue. Researchers combined cells found in human blood vessels with other elements along with animal collagen then printed a skin-like material. A few weeks later, the cells began to form into the vasculature.

Then the skin was grafted onto a mouse and they found it connected with the animal’s vessels. The vasculature is the arrangement of blood vessels in an organ or other parts of the body.

Associate professor of chemical and biological engineering at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, Pankaj Karande, led the research and said it was very important because they know there is a transfer of blood and nutrients to the graft, keeping the graft alive. He added that it’s like a really high-tech Band-Aid which helps the healing process then at some point it will fall off.

The researchers’ work was published in the Tissue Engineering Part A journal after the team showed human cells could be used to print material that is very similar to skin. With further work, the team will see about editing the skin cells using CRISPR technology so they can match the recipient’s cells making it less likely to be rejected by the body.

Help Heal a Variety of Conditions

Karande is hopeful the technology will help people with pressure ulcers or diabetes to slowly heal their wounds. He added that these patients are perfect because ulcers usually show in very distinct locations on the body and therefore can be focused on to apply smaller pieces of skin.

Deepak Vashishth said this is a significant development that will highlight the vast potential of 3D bioprinting in precision medicine so solutions can be tailored to specific situations and eventually to individual patients. Vashishth is the director of the Center for Biotechnology and Interdisciplinary Studies.

The skin is the newest medical advancement made possible by the technology of 3D printing. Back in May, another team of scientists offered the idea of 3D-printed internal organs closer to reality by creating a complex tangle of vessels in a lung-like structure.

Kelly Stevens is an assistant professor at the University of Washington and co-author of the paper published in Science. Stevens explained to Newsweek that the body contains various networks of pipes that bring nutrients to the organs and removes waste from the organ in the body.

Because many of these networks of pipes are entangled, it’s been very difficult for scientists to replicate by 3D printing. This new approach allows scientists to create multiple entangled networks of pips in 3D-printed tissues. They were quite surprised to see how structurally complex features could be printed with this new method.

US Scientists Develop Sunflower That Can Collect Solar Energy

A new artificial sunflower has been created by US Scientists.

The tiny flower is under 0.04” wide and their ability to turn towards the light source makes them 400% more effective than their stationary counterparts.  This is a development that shows much promise in the sphere of solar power, potentially being used to power spaceships.

Researchers based in the University of California, Los Angeles, led the research which was aiming to raise the amount of energy that could be collected using a similar movement as that used by plants that move towards the sun.  This phenomenon, known as phototropism, enables the plant to optimize the amount of solar energy it gets.

Flower Power

The study has been published in the journal Nature Nanotechnology, and indicated that the team had encountered significant challenges trying to replicate the behavior artificially which they overcame by developing a special type of polymer.

This material is responsive to light and the system has been called the SunBOT, a slightly catchier abbreviation of the full technical name:  sunflower-like bio-mimetic omnidirectional tracker.  The SunBOT works in multiple temperature ranges and does not need a power supply or human intervention.

The ‘stem’ of the plant was created using the polymer and topped with the ‘flower’ which is comprised of solar cells.  As the light shone at the SunBOT, the polymer stem got hotter and shrank.  This is what makes the flower turn towards the light.

These tiny sunflowers were then tested for efficiency and it was found that, compared with materials that remained stationary (non-phototropic materials), they were up to 400% more efficient.

There are likely to be numerous ways that the SunBOTs can be used, however, for it to make commercial sense the technology still has a way to go.  Once it does move forward, the research team are confident that it could be of use across multiple industries.Things like smart windows, solar sails, and intelligent energy generation have been highlighted and the study does show that the concept is sound.  We will likely see a lot more of these tiny flowers in the future.

Hidden Online Shopping Threats: e-skimming & ‘Magecart Attacks’

The internet is obviously a great place, giving us all the opportunity to learn, to invest, and to buy like we never could in our own communities. That being said, if there is one issue with the online industry, it’s just how easy it is for hidden threats to your personal data, and even your income, through hidden online shopping attacks.

This has become a sadly common practice, so much so that the FBI in Portland has already stepped out to raise awareness. With October being National Cybersecurity Awareness Month, it’s important that you do a bit of reading into what you could be running into when trying to buy items online.

Indeed, a common issue for many people when shopping online comes from “e-skimming”. This technique has become very commonplace in the online e-commerce industry and has seen many people impacted.

This hacking technique is used by criminals to try and get in line with third-party vendors who provide credit card payments online. However, even government agencies have been impacted in the past.

The main issue, though, is cost. The big companies and agencies often have the funds to put in place solid preventative measures to stop this problem from getting any worse. They can also then work together with others to try and reinforce their own security. But what about the small and independent companies that you might choose to buy from?

Beware of Magecart attacks

Another common problem that has become a major blight on online shopping is known as ‘Magecart’ attacks. These are part of the wider e-skimming industry, but they are used to attack everyone from the little to the large. While some warning signs on a Magecart attack, it’s often something that could slip through the net.

From a new company domain name appearing to edited JavaScript codes, there are many telltale signs of a potential e-skimming attack. The most common FBI tips included updating all of your systems and software, segregate your network systems and avoid running them all on one platform and make sure that all of your login credentials are advanced as well as regularly changed.

Of course, it’s also essential that any staff who are working with an e-shopping facility are trained and educated on the challenge of cybersecurity. This is becoming a major issue across the internet; the more that can be done to tackle the problem and minimize the risk, the better.

Hiker Saved by Apple Watch

A hiker from New Jersey has credited his Apple Watch for saving his life by dialing 911 after he and his date fell down a cliff.

The Apple Watch has several emergency response features including the ability to detect a fall and notify first responders.  Its location services send the coordinates of the wearer directly to emergency services.

James Prudenciano certainly believes that but for his Apple Watch he would not be alive.  He said that he and his date, Paige Paruso, had lost visibility as the sun went down when they were out hiking and had fallen down a cliff.

They had tried to slide down the drop believing it to be a lot lower than it was.  At the bottom, they were shocked to find they were going to fall directly into the Navesink River below.

The Watch Dialed 911

Paruso landed in the river sustaining minor injuries but Prudenciano landed hard on some rock, causing 3 spinal fractures.  At this stage, he believed he was going to die but the Apple Watch had already dialed 911.

All Apple Watch models after the Series 4 are fitted with this automatic SOS feature.  It can detect if a user falls and will ask if they require 911.  If there is no response or the wearer is immobile for longer than 60 seconds it automatically calls first responders and sends coordinates.

The couple were rescued by boat and were treated at the Hackensack Meridian Jersey Shore University Medical Center.

Google Confirms ‘Quantum Supremacy’ Breakthrough

Google has now confirmed that it has achieved quantum supremacy with its 54-qubit Sycamore processor. The announcement comes in an article in Nature. The news was unofficially leaked a month ago but now all of the research is public and being scrutinized by the scientific community.

According to Google, Sycamore took 200 seconds to perform a calculation that would take an existing supercomputer around 10,000 years. This is said to indicate that the way the machine made the calculation would not be possible using a non-quantum machine.

The supercomputer that Sycamore has been said to have beaten is operated by IBM which, not surprisingly, has disputed Google’s claim. IBM states that its computer could do the task in 2.5 days and not 10,000 years as stated.

Extraordinary Achievement

Although IBM is keen to play down Google’s achievements researchers have welcomed the news. Likely, our ability to produce quantum computers that are suitable and practical for common usage is years down the line but Sycamore does indicate that it is indeed possible.

Scientists have been so enamored with the new machine that they have compared it to the first plane flight undertaken by the Wright Brothers in 1903.

Streaming Wars: Empires Strike Each Other!

The wars continue to rage between these giant companies, first, it was content, then pricing, and now exclusion seems to be the latest line of attack in the video streaming wars. Disney told The Wall Street Journal they would shortly have their own “Netflix Killer”.

They will no longer run Netflix commercials on their major television networks, including ABC. According to another report from The Wall Street Journal, Disney also refuses to allow streaming rival Amazon to sell significant ad space on its multiple Disney apps.

It seems Amazon is firing back by threatening to remove Disney’s television apps from their Fire TV devices. Fire is an extremely powerful distributor of streaming TV apps.

The Forbidden Garden

If you think that’s it – you’d be wrong! Just lately, Apple has announced the will be launching their own subscription streaming service to compete with its mega rivals. They are systematically removing Amazon Prime Video apps from both of their App Stores.

It seems the world of television has become incredibly antagonistic and very complicated for the consumer. Hiding original content is now the name of the game. It’s becoming even more difficult for consumers to know where or how to find their favorite television shows.

On top of that, NBC Universal also has its own upcoming subscription streaming service. They are seriously trying to knock down the reigning streaming services and take it back. The question is, what are consumers supposed to do to get rid of these pricey cable bundles and NBC Universal is stepping forward with their own breed of horse.

Now, consumers can build their own bundles that fit them. That said, these virtual bundles ad up really quickly and are reaching the same pricey charges consumers have been trying to run from. It’s $12.99 for Netflix’s most popular package, $14.99 for HBO’s, $6.99 for Disney’s soon to be released streamer, and $4.99 for Apple’s.

On top of these prices, the consumer can expect to pay an additional $45 a month for watching live television!

All these mega streaming companies are far from being apologetic because so much is now at stake. Unfortunately, for traditional media and entertainment companies like Disney and NBC Universal, they are faced with the fact that their core television models for ads and cable subscriptions are dying.

This is forcing them to do the same thing v in this very scary new streaming world. They are willing to sacrifice massive dollars for ads from streaming competitors, like Netflix, on their television networks in order to increase their streaming chances. In other words, they are now willing to bite the hand that feeds them.

For newer media companies like Apple and Amazon, streaming services are a critical marketing tool to drive their core business models but they are not leading in content. For Apple, that means driving content to their high margin iPhones and Macs.

For Amazon content drives up sales from consumers shopping non-stop or consumers finding a better streaming competitor that offers better products and goods.

Over the past month, the frenzy of streaming wars is nowhere near slowing down and both Apple and Disney plan on taking the winning slots. This means, the media and entertainment industry along with consumer television choices and decision is only becoming more confusing and will continue to for many months ahead.

Where these streaming wars end is anyone’s guess. Unfortunately, it seems only the consumer is in the cross-fire while these streaming giants fight for first place. As a consumer, you should keep your eyes wide open and your ear to the ground. Somewhere in this mess, hopefully, they will be something in it for the consumer.

Picasso, Reconstructed by an A.I.

It’s rare for artists to spring up surprises long after their demise, but some occasions are noteworthy. Think Van Gogh, Rembrandt, Leonardo da Vinci, and Picasso.

Beneath the Old Guitarist (1903-04), Pablo Picasso’s popular Blue Period painting is the figure of a woman in faint markings. She was originally noticed in 1998 when X-rays and infrared light were used by conservators of the Art Institute of Chicago to peep behind the top layer of the paint.

She sits with her right arm tucked onto her lap and her left arm reaching toward the viewer.  Strangely enough, she resembles a sketch Picasso sent to a colleague at the same time the painting was made.

Enter A.I. Conservation

The foundation for the neural network was a technique created in 2015 by Leon Gatys at the University of Tübingen, Germany, called neural style transfer. The machine vision technique can indicate the style of a painting and convert it to match another.

For example, it can convert a Paul Cézanne to the style of Michelangelo. This technique has been used on videos as well, so it is possible to watch clips of Ice Age in the style of Van Gogh’s Starry Night.

All that could be recognized of the woman in the painting until now was the slightest trace of her outline. Other intricate details like style and color were lost.

Nevertheless, with the use of a neural network trained to differentiate the style of one artist from the other or one period from the other, researchers at University College London have given her a new life, even if it is not true to the original of Picasso.

Researchers George Cann and Anthony Bourached published their paper titled “Raiders of the Lost Art,” on the arXiv preprint server. The paper was also featured in a recent article in the MIT Technology Review.

The X-rayed images of the woman’s outlines were plugged into a neural network built to convert images into the style of La Vie (1903), another exceptional piece of Picasso’s Blue Period. In as much as the result cannot be a perfect match of Picasso’s painting which was also pained over 10 decades ago, it is at least conforming to the style he used at that period.

In Picasso’s The Crouching Beggar, the same technique was also used. It was painted over a landscape thought to have been made by a Spanish painter, Santiago Rusiñol, using Rusiñol’s Parc del Laberint d’Horta.

Cann and Bourached said that they hope the results help projects on other lost works of art and also challenge the popular doubt that “algorithm can be creative, or innovate.”

“We argue that the use of machine learning as an artistic tool can ultimately broaden creative insight and widen the landscape of inspirational ingenuity by human-AI collaboration,” wrote Cann and Bourached.

The Crouching Beggar and Old Guitarist are not the only Picasso works that cover hidden paintings. Earlier pieces are usually painted over by artists, especially when a fresh canvas is hard to come by due to inadequate funds. A portrait of a man resting his hand on his head underneath Picasso’s The Blue Room (1901) was found by researchers in 2014.

DoSomething.org Looks to Encourage Youth Turnout in US Elections

The 2019 Get Out the Vote campaign has started. In 2018 the campaign, that has been set up to encourage younger people to register to vote, added 118,000 young people to the register in time for the 2018 midterms.

This year it is set to pull more young voters into the democratic process for the forthcoming elections in 2019 and the Presidential Election in 2020.

DoSomething.org has benefited from a $500,000 grant donated by Craig Newmark Philanthropies which is headed up by Mr Newmark, the founder of Craig’s List. This funding will likely be used to target previously underrepresented voters including people of color.

The long term aim is to encourage young people to take a lifetime interest and fully participate in the democratic life of their country which is essential if the US is to hear the voice of all its citizens including those who are the most marginalized.

One Man’s Passion

This is a subject that Craig Newmark feels strongly about. Looking at some of the ways that people are excluded from the opportunity to vote, he hopes the funds will help some of the young voters to overcome barriers that prevent them from exercising their franchise.

Things like gerrymandering, ID regulations, purging, and other tactics can often remove peoples’ ability to register and cast a vote.

Newmark believes that DoSomething.org’s Get Out the Vote is a much-needed initiative and that more work is needed at a grassroots level to make the election system much more inclusive and open to all Americans.

For DoSomething.org, a spokesperson announced that in 2019 the campaign will be looking to educate voters using offline and online channels. There is likely to be a great deal of input from social influencers, alongside voter registration drives, reminders delivered via SMS, and voting plans.

The offline activities will include community organizing to encourage all young adults to register to vote.

A key part of the strategy is the organization of another National Absentee Ballot Day on 8th October. This will target the five states with elections planned: Louisiana, Virginia, New Jersey, Mississippi, and Kentucky, with students from each state, encouraged to submit an absentee ballot.

Last year the campaign helped to bring about a record voter turnout in the midterms (42%). The only year where a higher turnout was recorded was 1914 when 50.4% of voters came out. However, it is worth noting that in 1914 women did not have the vote (US Elections Project).

The $500,000 grant from Newmark means that DoSomething.org can aim to break more records in 2020 when US citizens have another presidential election. Newark sees the vote as an essential civic duty that enables Americans to protect their democracy.

He encourages everyone to get out to vote and passionately supports the aims of DoSomething.org’s Get Out the Vote initiative. In particular, its role in targeting young people and empowering them to elect their officials and hold them accountable.

The 2019 Get Out the Vote campaign has started. In 2018 the campaign, that has been set up to encourage younger people to register to vote, added 118,000 young people to the register in time for the 2018 midterms.

Robotic Contact Lenses Allow You to Zoom In on Blink-Command

Everything robotic is on the rise!  As of late, researchers at the University of California San Diego have explored the idea of contact lenses that will zoom in on objects by blinking twice!  They are called “soft robots” which actually copies elements found in living organisms. They can be integrated with a human body and this is one of the projects that is taking center stage.

The researchers have actually created a prototype contact lens that’s controlled by the movement of your eye.  You can simply blink twice to zoom in and out from an object.  These biomimetic lenses are made from elastic polymer films designed to respond to the electric signals that are generated by eye movement.

The layers that expand or contract will change the thickness of the lenses which changes the amount of light that passes through. Actually, this technology is not new, it’s very much like eye-tracking technology that allows people to control their wheelchairs.

Soft Robots

Due to many unique features, soft robots have been extensively explored to work in collaboration with humans.  The latest development of soft robots can be either controlled manually or through a pre-written program.

The researchers explained that current developments have created a human/machine interface that uses electrooculographic signals that are generated by the movement of the eye to control motions and change the focal length of a biomimetic soft lens.

The motion and contortion of soft lenses are achieved by actuating areas of the dielectric polymer films which copies the mechanism of the eyes in people as well as in most mammals. In a recent study, the system has the potential to be used in visual prostheses, adjustable glasses, and remotely operated robotic in the near future.

This is really an amazing breakthrough that could allow your eye to see things more clearly and even zoom in on very small objects that the human eye has difficulty seeing. From there, the sky’s the limit.

Arch Rao is Back With a New Company for Energy Management

If you don’t know who Arch Rao is, he was the former head of products, applications, and sales engineering at Tesla Energy.  He was behind the company’s successful Powerwall home energy system.  He is now back as founder and CEO of a new company, Span IO, promoting energy management and efficiency for homes.

Span IO is working to upgrade the electrical fuse box for homes with a digital system that integrates into the existing circuit breaker technology that has been the foundation of home energy over the last century.

Arch Rao and his team are focusing on integrating renewable power energy storage, and electric vehicles making it easier for people by redesigning the electric panel for modern energy requirements.

They packaged the metering controls that travel between the bus bar and the breaker.

Rao said energy flows through the panel through a breaker bar and the breaker bar has tabs that you slot your breakers into, the tab is normally a conductor.  They have designed a digital sub-assembly that packages current metering voltage measurement, and the ability to turn each circuit on and off.

The technology will be sold through various avenues such as solar energy or battery installers. They already have plans to integrate their power management devices with energy storage systems similar to those available from LG.

Span plans on selling their products in states like California and Hawaii where the demand for solar installation is very strong and homeowners understand the significant benefits from installing renewable energy and energy efficiency systems.

What Happens When There’s an Outage?

One of the great advantages, homeowners having this new power management system will give them control over what areas of their homes will be powered in case there is an outage.  The technology hooks up the entire home to a renewable system.

Rao said using existing technologies, installers can set up a separate breaker and just rewire certain areas of the home to receive the power generated by a renewable energy system.

The control is handled through a consumer app which is available for downloading on mobile devices.

Span IO is backed by many investors including Wireframe Ventures, Wells Fargo Strategic Capital, Ulu Ventures, Hardware Club, Consignment Ventures, I/O Capital, and Energy foundry.  They plan on raising new cash before the end of this year to push forward.

What Can I Do If I Can’t Sleep?

Experts believe that if you or your kids can’t sleep, trying to force it will actually make things worse. If you wake up too early and think that staying in bed will force you to go back to sleep, you’d be wrong.

Trying to make yourself sleep when you can’t, will lead to stress and tension making the situation even worse. On top of that, if this goes on for any length of time, it could lead to serious insomnia.

According to studies performed at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine getting out of bed when you can’t sleep will decease 70 to 80% of acute insomnia and will not turn into chronic insomnia.

During the study, researchers observed the time in bed and the sleeping habits of 416 people over the course of a year.  Many of these participants were good sleepers before the study.  Once the study started, 20% experienced acute insomnia, having problems falling asleep or staying asleep 3 or more times in a week, expanding to 2 weeks and some cases 3 months.

45% of the participants eventually returned to good sleepers but 7% who suffered from insomnia ended up with chronic insomnia for approximately as long as 3 months.  Those who chose to restrict their time in bed were more likely to get back into good sleeping habits.  Others that chose to stay in bed were likely to suffer from insomnia and eventually become chronic.

Experts believe that if you cannot sleep, spend the time reading, writing what you have put off, or some other activity.   Chances are, you will probably go back to sleep faster and have a better night’s sleep than if you chose to stay in bed and become stressed.

What You Should Not Do:

Michael Perlis, Ph.D., director and author of the study at the Penn Behavioral Sleep Medicine Program there are stumbling blocks of prolonged sleep opportunity, which can lead to your misalignment with your actual sleeping abilities.

People with insomnia usually extend their sleep opportunities by going to bed earlier, getting out of bed late, and then taking naps.   Unfortunately, this is a short-term fix because the problem over the long-term will create an imbalance between your current sleep ability and your current sleep opportunities which can lead to insomnia.

People will often overcompensate loss of sleep by changing the sleep schedule.  Choosing to stay awake instead of forcing sleep is a better strategy for the treatment of insomnia in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, which has been announced by the American College f Physicians and is a better treatment.

Sticking by a better sleep and wake-up schedule will help regulate your sleep within a matter of 3 to 5 days.

Your bed should be reserved for sleep or sex, not for reading, writing or watching television. According to Michael Grander, another author & director of Sleep and Health Research at the University of Arizona College of Medicine, believes you should limit your time awake in bed to half an hour a week.
