UK investigates effect of Indian Covid-19 variant

first_imgChief medical adviser for NHS Test and Trace Dr Susan Hopkins said today that around 70 cases of the Indian variant have been found in the UK, with some positive tests not linked with international travel. whatsapp Show Comments ▼ However, Dr Hopkins told the BBC that there was not enough information to classify it as a “variant of concern”, while also adding that it is too soon to add India to the UK’s red list of countries. The long-planned trip has been scaled back from its original schedule and will see Johnson meet Indian PM Narendra Modi on 26 April. The UK’s decision to not put India on the red list comes as Boris Johnson is set to visit the country in just over one week’s time. Stefan Boscia The UK’s health officials have launched an investigation into whether the newly found Indian variant of Covid-19 spreads faster and is vaccine resistant, after cases of the variant were found in England and Scotland.

West High senior to defend Alaska’s national Poetry Out Loud title

first_imgArts & Culture | Education | SouthcentralWest High senior to defend Alaska’s national Poetry Out Loud titleMarch 18, 2016 by Keira Alkema Share:Audio Playerhttps://media.ktoo.org/2016/03/18OUTLOUD.mp300:0000:0000:00Use Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.West Anchorage High School senior Shannon Croft takes a deep breath, then begins reciting John Keats’ “When I Have Fears That I May Cease to Be.”Her recitation of John Keats’ poem on Tuesday won her the state championship of Poetry Out Loud. It’s a classroom-based poetry program and this year, more than 3,600 students from 29 schools across Alaska participated.As state champion, Croft received a $200 cash prize, a $500 stipend to buy poetry books for her school, and an all-expenses paid trip to Washington, D.C., for the national competition in May. Last year, West Anchorage High School student Maeva Ordaz, now a freshman at Columbia University, won the national competition.Thunder Mountain High School freshman Briannah Letter didn’t advance past the state finals this year, but she still got something out of the experience. Poetry Out Loud is also a chance to practice something many students dread — public speaking.“You should’ve seen me right before I went up for the school competition. My heart was pounding. I was breathing really heavily,” Letter said. “I realized that after the school competition and the district competition, I felt a lot better standing in front of those people. After this, I’ll be a lot more comfortable with my voice through a microphone and talking to people in general.”Letter’s mentor, Thunder Mountain English teacher Barbara Maier, said Poetry Out Loud is about encouraging students to develop memorization, analysis, and public speaking skills.“Kids grow just by standing up and presenting something to their peers,” Maier said. “Poetry Out Loud is a defined list of poems that have been chosen because they can be presented well. There’s that safety that no matter what they choose there’s something in that poem that a kid has to discover. They’re digging into really good literature and then playing with it standing up and presenting.”And, for Letter, it started out as a finals week assignment. By February, Letter had advanced through school and district Poetry Out Loud competitions, beating out more than 50 students for the chance to represent Juneau at the state competition.With finalists traveling from as far away as Shaktoolik and Unalaska, the state finals were also a chance to visit the capital city. Before the competition, finalists heard guest lectures from local artists, visited state representatives at the Capitol, and toured the Governor’s Mansion.Alaska state champion Shannon Croft heads to Washington, D.C., for the Poetry Out Loud national finals May 2 to 4. Croft will represent Alaska and defend Ordaz’s title.Share this story:last_img read more

They might have taste changes, which makes their normal foods taste awful to them. They might have chewing and swallowing issues. They might have nausea and things like that. So, when we’re choosing their foods, we have to take into account, what they are physically able to eat,” explained Taylor Lawless, an oncology clinical dietitian with Lee Health. Lawless offers patients nutritional assistance during cancer treatment. “We can help to ease symptoms like constipation, diarrhea, or nausea and vomiting. A lot of people also develop anxiety about food when they go through cancer treatment, so it’s dealing with the physical process, but also the emotional process going through what they are choosing to eat,” she said. Taylor works with patients to find foods that can keep them healthy and nourished. “Diet and nutrition are vital for cancer patients and survivors because that’s what actually gives them the fuel, the vitamins, and the minerals, to repair their bodies from the treatments they are going through,” said Lawless.

CU-Boulder Buildings Cut Energy Use Through Buff Energy Star Program

first_imgShare Share via TwitterShare via FacebookShare via LinkedInShare via E-mail Published: Oct. 7, 2010 Conservation efforts at three University of Colorado at Boulder buildings cut campus energy use by 645,000 kilowatt-hours, reducing carbon dioxide emissions by over 1 million pounds and saving nearly $65,000 in utility costs during the 2009-10 fiscal year.The savings, achieved at Norlin Library, the Hellems Arts and Sciences Building and the Mathematics Building, were encouraged under CU-Boulder’s Buff Energy Star program, which provides building proctors reduction goals, tracking tools and models to encourage occupants to participate in resource conservation practices.”Energy conservation is good for the environment and the university’s bottom line,” said Moe Tabrizi, CU’s energy conservation officer. “The Buff Energy Star program shows communities within buildings, and the campus as a whole, that the simplest strategies, such as turning off unnecessary lights or equipment, can have a great impact.”The Buff Energy Star program has contributed to CU-Boulder’s 23 percent slash in campuswide energy use and overall stabilization of greenhouse gas emissions since 2005, despite a 14 percent growth in campus facilities. The findings were reported last month in a carbon inventory filed with the American College and University Presidents’ Climate Commitment, of which CU-Boulder has been a signatory since 2006.To be considered for Buff Energy Star status, building proctors must complete an energy audit, take action based on the audit, post energy and water conservation educational materials and show a 5 percent energy reduction over the prior fiscal year.The building proctors being recognized this year for qualifying their buildings for Buff Energy Star status are John Culshaw of Norlin Library, David Nicoll of the Hellems Arts and Sciences Building and Donna Maes of the Mathematics Building. Each will receive a one-time $1,000 bonus from CU-Boulder Vice Chancellor for Administration Frank Bruno.Specific energy-saving actions that were implemented by the building proctors include turning off lights not in use, enabling power-management features on computers and other office equipment, relying more on daylight and reporting energy waste to the campus conservation hotline.Through the Buff Energy Star program, a total of 2.9 million kilowatt hours of energy and over $300,000 have been saved since 2004. Total reduction of carbon dioxide emissions amount to more than 4.5 million pounds, according to Tabrizi.The current Buff Energy Star cycle began in July 2010 and will run through June 2011.

Researchers scale up tiny actuator inspired by muscle

first_imgPublished: Nov. 12, 2020 • By Oksana Schuppan Researchers at CU Boulder are collaborating to develop a new kind of biocompatible actuator that contracts and relaxes in only one dimension, like muscles. Their research may one day enable soft machines to fully integrate with our bodies to deliver drugs, target tumors, or repair aging or dysfunctional tissue.Assistant Professor Carson Bruns (left) and Professor Franck Vernerey (right).Professor Franck Vernerey of the Paul M. Rady Department of Mechanical Engineering and Assistant Professor Carson Bruns of the Paul M. Rady Department of Mechanical Engineering and ATLAS Institute received $477,000 from the National Science Foundation to begin this three-year project in January 2021.“We are investigating an emerging class of materials known as slide ring polymers that resemble beads on a string,” said Vernerey. “When the network is subjected to a controlled stimulus, the bead-like molecules can slide around, which allows for a new way to actuate the material.”Naturally occurring molecular machines in the body perform vital cell functions, such as gene replication, protein synthesis or transportation of intracellular cargo. Artificial molecular machines—inspired by those in nature—were recognized by the 2016 Nobel Prize, awarded to early pioneers in this area. Now, Bruns and Vernerey aim to scale up these tiny machines from nanoscale to macroscale using networks.Instead of one molecule, a network incorporates numerous molecules, linked and working together, as occurs naturally in muscle. The process of starting small and scaling up allows the manmade material to copy how nature organizes molecular machines. To ensure the best results, Vernerey will also create a multiscale model to generate predictions that will help determine exactly how to tweak the molecular structure for the most effective scaling.“The part that Franck’s group is doing is the first of its kind for these materials,” said Bruns. “It keeps my group from having to go into the lab and make hundreds of networked molecular machines until we find the property that we’re most interested in.”Likewise, Vernerey said there would be no models without Bruns. “We make for a very cool integration,” said Vernerey.A schematic showing a slide ring network relaxing (left) and contracting (right). The bead-like molecules slide around, allowing for a new way to actuate the material.Hydrogels currently are the main available actuator based on molecular interactions, which change shape based on temperature, pH or pulses of electricity. However, these actuators are limited in that they cannot change shape in only one dimension. When a soft material experiences a change in volume instead of just length, its movements are slower, harder to control and a less efficient use of energy.“Imagine the actuator is a sponge soaked in water, and it takes a long time for the water to leave,” said Vernerey. “The larger the actuator, the longer you have to push out. This means when you want to scale it up, this approach becomes unrealistically slow. The only way to make things fast is to contract without volume change.”Natural muscle, the inspiration for this project, does this quickly in the body. Each molecular machine pulls on polymer ropes in a microscopic tug-of-war, and the movements collectively result in the muscle shortening to contract and fully extending to relax.“Another consideration is that our materials can be made to be self-healing, and they are biodegradable, both properties of muscle,” said Bruns.  Bruns said their materials are made of non-toxic, food-grade products. This is significant, because most other actuators—especially those that rely on electricity—are not safe to use inside the body.“While we hope there will be applications, we are equally interested in better understanding these systems,” said Bruns. To this end, Bruns and Vernerey are also developing interactive lessons in this area for high-school and undergraduate students.“If you tell a student in high school, I’m just building a polymer, they might not be that excited,” said Vernerey. “But this project has great applications which will help them to be excited about the physics.”Whether their findings help in tissue engineering or in developing soft micro-robots to mimic and guide cells, among other applications, Bruns and Vernerey said they are excited to be on the frontier of nanotechnology, gaining a better understanding of molecular machines and networks.  Categories:Mechanics of MaterialsMicro/NanoscaleTags:Carson BrunsFranck Vernerey Share Share via FacebookShare via TwitterShare via LinkedInlast_img read more

Blog: North American operators opine on open RAN

first_img AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInLinkedInShare to TwitterTwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookFacebookShare to MoreAddThisMore9 16 DEC 2020 Author HomeBlog Blog: North American operators opine on open RAN Tags It’s no longer just trials and talk: open RAN deals and deployments are slowly picking up steam.In 2019, MTN Group detailed plans to deploy 5,000 open RAN sites. There was even more activity in 2020, with Bharti Airtel pushing Altiostar’s open virtual RAN software live in its network in April; Vodafone UK pledging to deploy at least 2,600 compatible sites by 2027; and Telefonica targeting rollout of thousands of nodes across its footprint over the next five years.Earlier this month, KDDI tapped Fujitsu to supply radios for a virtualised 5G network. And then, of course, there are Rakuten Mobile and Dish Network, which are pretty much exclusively relying on the approach for their greenfield networks.But Vodafone Group executives recently pushed global peers to make even more large-scale commitments, arguing these were necessary to spur further development.So, where do North American operators stand on open RAN?United StatesLeaving Dish Network aside, AT&T, T-Mobile US, Verizon and UScellular are all members of the Open RAN Alliance (O-RAN Alliance), with all but T-Mobile also part of the Open RAN Policy Coalition lobby group.T-Mobile is the only US operator which is a member of the Telecom Infra Project (TIP).An AT&T representative told Mobile World Live (MWL) it plans to deploy open RAN in its network as equipment becomes available. The representative added work has already begun on fronthaul systems, but noted it will “take multiple years to mature the standards, explore, build, deploy, learn, tune and scale”. Trials are underway and “we are gradually introducing O-RAN interfaces and capabilities into the network”.To move forward, the representative said AT&T needs to see “maturity and standardisation of the O-RAN specifications, interfaces and architecture”. It is also seeking broad support for management interfaces which can improve tooling, capabilities and costs; common data and information models; and an ecosystem of RAN applications which can enable new business models.T-Mobile and Verizon echoed AT&T’s concerns.During a forum on open RAN hosted by the US Federal Communications Commission in September, Verizon director of network infrastructure planning Lori Fountain said it was an “early adopter” of the approach, but conceded it was “kind of at the first step of that journey”.She acknowledged open RAN was “the future”, but explained “scale and maturity” remained a challenge.“We have a mature network here at Verizon and it’s not a greenfield network…We will be adopting this critical architecture and in a timeframe that successfully allows the network to mature gracefully but, at the same time, protecting our customers”.T-Mobile president of technology Neville Ray approached the topic with a much more critical lens in November, telling an investor conference the approach was “not ready for prime time”.He said there is too much uncertainty over who ensures R&D alignment and where responsibility lies for helping operators resolve network issues when something goes wrong. And he noted the oft-touted cost benefits of open RAN will depend heavily on who pays system integration and maintenance costs.UScellular VP of advanced technology and systems planning Narothum Saxena told MWL in June multi-vendor testing was underway and it would likely begin deployments in 2021. He flagged interoperability as one of the biggest challenges which needed to be addressed. An operator representative confirmed his comments stand.CanadaOf the big three Canadian players, only Bell Canada and Telus are O-RAN Alliance members. None are part of the Telecom Infra Project (TIP) or Open RAN Policy Coalition.A Bell Canada representative told MWL its O-RAN Alliance membership means it is “working closely with our global partners on the development of industry specifications, best practices and the full potential of what open RAN will mean for network innovation”. It plans to commence trials in 2021 to “further develop” deployment strategies.In September, Telus VP of network and architecture strategy Bernard Bureau said open RAN capabilities from vendors would be a core requirement of its future network deals, but stopped short of saying when it might deploy the technology. It did not respond to a request for information about its plans.Rogers Communications’ stance and plans are unclear: it does not appear to have issued any press releases on the matter and declined MWL‘s request for comment.MexicoInterest in open RAN among operators in Mexico is even harder to pin down.AT&T and Telefonica have businesses in the country, but the former said its comments above only applied to the US and did not elaborate on its plans for Mexico before MWL‘s publication deadline. Meanwhile, Telefonica indicated it would focus open RAN deployments on Brazil, Germany, Spain and the UK. Telefonica is an O-RAN Alliance and TIP member.America Movil is not a member of either, and did not respond to a request for comment.It will be interesting to see how operator plans change and develop as trial results roll in and open RAN continues to mature.During the TIP Insights Series EMEA event last month, Vodafone executives predicted deployments would pick up in rural environments in Q1 2021, before spreading to residential urban areas in Q2 and Q3, and dense urban areas from Q4 and into 2022.Only time will tell if the timeline will hold, but by this point in 2021 we should have a much clearer picture of how open RAN is shaping up in North America and beyond.The editorial views expressed in this article are solely those of the author and will not necessarily reflect the views of the GSMA, its Members or Associate Members.
