Microwave Based Non-Invasive Wearable Glucose Monitor

first_imgA team of researchers at Cardiff University have developed a wearable glucose monitor that does not require the extraction of blood. Instead of taking measurements by pricking the skin, this device, uses microwaves to measure glucose levels, sending the resulting data to a computer or mobile app. It can be attached to the body using sticky adhesives.The people with Type 1 diabetes have to monitor their blood glucose level more regularly – up to six times a day, or 20,000 times over a decade. This device could make life easier for the millions of people who are suffering from diabetes. Conventional methods of monitoring blood glucose require the extraction of blood. This device is non-invasive – it does not require the extraction of blood except during initial calibration. This device uses microwaves to extract the glucose levels, however uses very, very low power – much lower than the levels used in domestic cooking or mobile phones.This project has received £1m in funding from the Wellcome Trust up to now, and has already been used in clinical trials in patients.  The researchers feel that it could reach the market within five years.last_img read more

Indian Railways Bakal Gunakan Drone Untuk Tunjang Pelayanan di Berbagai Aspek

first_imgSumber: ste.india.com Sebagai bentuk apresiasi terhadap perkembangan jaman dan efisiensi tenaga manusia, Indian Railways mengutarakan rencananya untuk ‘mempekerjakan’ Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) atau yang lebih dikenal dengan drone. Rencana ini ditujukan untuk berbagai kegiatan terkait keselamatan dan perawatan, dimana hal tersebut secara tidak langsung akan meningkatkan pelayanan perkeretaapian India terhadap para penumpangnya.Baca Juga: Cegah Kecelakaan di Perlintasan Sebidang, Indian Railways Adopsi Teknologi SatelitSebagaimana yang dilansir KabarPenumpang.com dari laman opengovasia.com (9/1/2018), kerja sama yang dijalin pihak Indian Railways dengan Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) terkait penerapan Sistem Informasi Kereta Api Real-Time juga ditengarai sebagai salah satu alasan perkeretaapian India ingin melibatkan drone dalam layanannya. Tidak berhenti sampai di situ, Indian Railways juga menggunakannya untuk menilai kesiapan kerja dari Non-Interlocking (NI), sistem pemantau udara selama acara publik seperti pameran dan lain-lain. Menurut laman sumber, inisiatif ini sejalan dengan keinginan Indian Railways untuk menggunakan teknologi guna meningkatkan keselamatan dan efisiensi dalam pengoperasi kereta api. Di sisi lain, West Central Railways (WCR) diketahui baru mencoba teknologi drone di dalam layanannya dan langsung menguji cobanya.Sedikit berbeda dengan Indian Railways, WCR akan menugaskan drone untuk memantau proyek, inspeksi jembatan, dan antisipasi bencana musiman pada layanan kereta yang melewati daerah pegunungan. Sebelumnya, demonstrasi drone dilakukan untuk pemantauan proyek kerja Elektrifikasi Kereta Api Jabalpur Yard.Pada tanggal 3 Januari kemarin, Pemerintah mengumumkan bahwa Kementerian akan segera menerapkan Real-Time Train Information System (RTIS) pada kereta yang bekerja sama dengan ISRO. Ini melibatkan pelacakan kereta dengan menempatkan perangkat berbasis GPS / GAGAN (Global Positioning System Aided Geo Augmented Navigation System) pada lokomotif.Tahap I direncanakan selesai pada bulan Desember 2018, proyek RTIS yang menggunakan teknologi GPS ini akan dipasang di sekitar 2700 lokomotif listrik. Sedangkan lokomotif yang belum dipasang teknologi GPS ini akan masuk ke dalam daftar tunggu pemasangan pada fase selanjutnya.Baca Juga: “The Rail Saarthi,” Aplikasi Mirip KAI Accsess Untuk Penumpang Kereta di IndiaUji coba untuk sistem RTIS telah dilakukan di kereta api New Delhi – Guwahati dan New Delhi – Mumbai Rajdhani di enam lokomotif listrik yang berbeda. Tingkat pelaporan real-time yang handal dan tinggi (sekitar 99,3%) telah diamati dan dianggap memadai untuk memenuhi persyaratan RTIS.Adapun tujuan Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) yang ditandatangani pihak Indian Railways dan ISRO pada bulan Maret 2016 diantaranya adalah untuk pengembangan sistem peringatan dini untuk pengguna jalan di perlintasan sebidang kereta nirawak, pemetaan aset Indian Railways melalui teknologi Geospasial, mengembangkan RTIS dengan menggunakan Layanan Satelit Komunikasi, hingga memenuhi persyaratan komunikasi berbasis satelit Indian Railways.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Like this:Like Loading… Relatedlast_img read more

Orville Higgins | T20 glory possible for West Indies

first_imgLike most Caribbean people, I have given up on the thought of seeing the West Indies get back on top of the world in Test cricket. We may just have to resort to YouTube if we want to see the West Indies beating the world while decked out in ‘whites’ again. I do not hold out much hope of seeing us win the 50-over tournament anytime soon either. T20 cricket is another matter. Here we have a genuine chance of lifting the trophy late next year in Australia. We have lifted two global T20 titles before, and though the current team is not the same quality as it was, say, five years ago, we could still be one of the teams to beat. The biggest problem is, of course, the bowling. When we took the two titles, we could call on the services of Sunil Narine and Samuel Badree, at the time the best spin- bowling duo in the T20 format. Badree has since retired and gone into commentary (did I read talks about a comeback?), while you never know when Narine will be available to play international cricket. Ravi Rampaul, the most underrated West Indian fast bowler of his generation, is also no longer wearing West Indies colours. Those are three huge shoes to fill, and looking around the West Indies, there are no obvious replacements. Hayden Walsh and Khary Pierre are exposed now, but it is unlikely that they will have the same impact as the Narine-Badree combination. Chris Gayle may well try to summon up the last vestiges of his form and fitness for what should be his last hurrah in a little under a year. With or without Gayle, the batting still looks fairly formidable on paper. Any T20 batting line-up with Evin Lewis, Lendl Simmonds, Brandon King, Shemron Hetmeyer, Nicholas Pooran, Daren Bravo, Kieran Pollard, and a possible Andre Russell can create problems for any team. The next staging of the Caribbean Premier League (CPL) will be held just before the World Cup next year and will provide opportunities for players to make the World Cup squad. Sheldon Cotterell and Kesrick Williams look to be the two front runners for the new ball, but the other spots for fast bowlers are wide open. An SOS for fast bowlers who can bat will be sent out during the CPL next year. Wicket-taking spinners are also in short supply. With no obvious attacking spinner who’s scaring the world, we may have to make do with slow-bowling all-rounders. Fabian Allen and Rahkim Cornwall, anyone? Do we “remember the name” and bring back Carlos Brathwaite? Will Dwayne Bravo suit up now that he has announced an end to his retirement? We do not have the bowlers to make international batsmen lose sleep, but we still have reasonable bowlers who can hit it a far way. We may well have to gamble on Jason Holder, Dwayne Bravo, Carlos Brathwaite, and Andre Russell all in the same team. Power hitting is one area where we have an advantage over the world, and this may well be our best chance if we play all these hard-hitting all-rounders. I can’t wait to see how our team will do Down Under in the tournament next year. We can win, but our odds are not what they used to be.last_img read more

A new Woerner for Georgia

first_imgATHENS, Ga. — It’s been over 30 years since Georgia fans have been able to cheer a player with the last name Woerner.Come 2016, they’ll be able to do it again following Thursday’s commitment of Charlie Woerner, the nephew of former Georgia great Scott Woerner, a star for the Bulldogs on the 1980 National Championship team.Charlie WoernerCharlie Woerner“I texted him,” Charlie Woerner told UGASports.com in regards to his famous uncle. “He said he already knew when I told him.”A four-star performer, Woerner’s decision certainly qualifies as a big get for Mark Richt. At 6-foot-5 and 220 pounds, the rising senior at Rabun County High possesses excellent quickness off the ball with the ability to stretch the field like few his height can.Woerner informed the Bulldogs of his decision at around 1 p.m. Thursday afternoon.“It went good,” Woerner said of contacting coaches. “I just called them on the phone and told them I wanted to go to Georgia. I called about 45 minutes ago. I called Coach (Jeremy) Pruitt, and then, I called Coach (Mark) Richt. They were excited. They were kind of surprised that it happened. Actually, they really were surprised.”Woerner, who chose the Bulldogs over SEC rival Alabama and Oregon, said he wanted to get his decision out of the way before his senior year.“I want to really focus on my senior season,” Woerner said. “I don’t have to worry about where I’m going after that, so I want to focus on my team doing as good as we can this year.”Woener’s decision comes less than a week after taking in Dawg Night in Athens last Saturday.“I didn’t compete,” Woerner said of Dawg Night. “I just watched, but it went good. Talking to Jacob (Eason) and Ben (Cleveland) and some of the other guys made it fun. They didn’t really have an effect. I kind of knew I wanted to go there, but I wanted to talk to them anyway. I guess you could say it did have an effect. We just talked about regular stuff, not really football. They didn’t really recruit me. I guess talking to me is kind of recruiting. It was cool just talking to everybody. I didn’t stay for the whole thing, but I watched some it. That was the first Dawg Night I’ve stayed that long. I didn’t stay as long last time because it rained, but it was cool to see how everything went around.”Anthony Dasher writes for UGASports.comlast_img read more

Rebels’ game at Arkansas will be on CBS

first_imgOXFORD — Ole Miss’ game against Arkansas is the Southeastern Conference game of the week.The No. 10 Rebels (8-2, 4-2 SEC) will play at Arkansas at 2:30 p.m. on Nov. 22 in a game that will be televised by CBS. The SEC announced times for the last two weeks of games Monday, including Ole Miss playing the Egg Bowl on CBS.The Egg Bowl will be on CBSIt’ll be the second and third times this season Ole Miss has played on the network, which gets the first pick of league games each week. Ole Miss beat Alabama on Oct. 4 during its first appearance.Why is Ole Miss playing the last-place team in the SEC West the CBS game, you ask? Well, it’s a particularly weak slate of games that day with only three conference matchups (Mississippi State-Vanderbilt and Missouri-Tennessee are the others). Georgia, Florida, Alabama and Auburn are all playing FCS teams that day, and three schools are off completely.That said, Ole Miss and Arkansas is not a bad matchup. The Rebels will be a top-10 team with a lot to play for during the last two weeks of the season, and the Hogs need to win two of their final three games in order to go to a bowl under second-year coach Bret Bielema.last_img read more
