Meet the woman who invented a whole new subsection of tech set to be worth $1 trillion

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, health, neuroscience

The term now covers all types of technology and innovation designed to address health issues that solely, or disproportionately, impact women’s health, from menstrual cycle tracking apps and sexual wellness products to cardiovascular medical devices and mental health therapies.

Giving FemTech its own name helped the community of people working in the sector to find each other, but also gave investors reassurance about where they were putting their money, Tin said.

“It’s a little easier to say you’re invested in FemTech than, you know, a company that helps women not pee their pants … It kind of bridged the gap over to men as well, which was important, still is important, because so many investors are men.”

Single-pulse real-time billion-frames-per-second planar imaging of ultrafast nanoparticle-laser dynamics

Posted by in categories: health, nanotechnology, physics, sustainability

The soot produced by unburnt hydrocarbon flames is the second largest contributor to global warming, while also harming human health. Researchers have developed state-of-the-art, high-speed imaging techniques to study turbulent flames, yet they are limited to an imaging rate of million-frames-per-second. Physicists are therefore keen to obtain a complete picture of flame-laser interactions via single-pulse imaging.

In a new report published in Light: Science & Applications, Yogeshwar Nath Mishra and a research team at the Caltech Optical Imaging Laboratory, the NASA Jet propulsion lab, department of physics, and the Institute of Engineering Thermodynamics in the U.S., and Germany, used single-shot laser-sheet comprised ultrafast photography per billion frames per second, for the first time, to observe the dynamics of laser-flames.

Can The Present Affect the Past

Posted by in category: health

An exploration of the ideas of physicist John Wheeler and how it may be that events happening in the present, fix events that happened in the past and that the whole of time in the universe is an exercise in it creating itself.

Florida Man Dies from Brain-Eating Amoeba Infection

Posted by in category: health

The man may have acquired this very rare infection after rinsing his sinuses with tap water, the Florida Department of Health in Charlotte County said in a news release.

While health officials continue to investigate the cause of the Naegleria fowleri infection, they emphasized that it can’t be contracted from drinking tap water.

These infections only happen when contaminated water enters through the sinuses, officials said.

Poor sleep linked to years of poor cardiovascular health

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, health

Poor sleep could lead to between two and seven years worth of heightened heart disease risk and even premature death, according to a new study led by researchers at the University of Sydney in collaboration with Southern Denmark University.

The study analyzed data from more than 300,000 middle-aged adults from the UK Biobank and found that different disturbances to sleep are associated with different durations of compromised later in life compared to healthy sleepers.

In particular, men with clinical sleep-related breathing disorders lost nearly seven years of cardiovascular disease-free life compared to those without these conditions, and women lost over seven years. Importantly, even general , such as insufficient sleep, insomnia complaints, snoring, going to bed late, and is associated with a loss of around two years of normal heart health in men and women.
