Miracle baby born while still inside amniotic sac
 
01:11
SAO PAULO, BRAZIL — While childbirth in itself is miraculous and unforgettable, one little baby decided to make its grand entrance into the world more memorable. The Sun reports that a snug infant was delivered last Saturday in Sao Paulo, Brazil while still fully in its amniotic sac. The rare birth was captured on video by nurse Giselinha Correa, who posted it online Usually, the mother’s water breaks early on, or is punctured during a C-section. That was the case for this little one’s twin, who was delivered normally seconds before. In the video, the sac is set on a hospital table and surrounded by doctors and nurses. Inside, the baby can be seen moving its hands and feet, the blue umbilical cord draped over its neck and head. Earlier this year, a baby born in Spain was also delivered while still encased in its amniotic sac, according to the Huffington Post. Spanish doctors eventually used a scalpel to free him from his snug little bag. It’s likely the same was done for this new bundle of joy. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

Ocean cleanup: Dutch group to rid Great Pacific Garbage Patch of trash in 2018 - TomoNews
 
05:54
DELFT, NETHERLANDS — A Dutch group aiming to rid the oceans of plastic junk has announced it will begin efforts to clean up the Great Pacific Garbage Patch by 2018, two years earlier than originally intended. The organization, Ocean Cleanup, was founded by 22-year-old Boyan Slat. According to the group’s website, they will use trash collectors in the form of curved booms and screens, which are suspended by anchors floating in deep water. The system will act like an artificial coastline, catching plastic debris as it drifts on the surface or just below the water. Once full, a vessel empties the system and transports the collected plastic to land for processing and recycling. The group plans to deploy up to 50 systems, and expects to collect 50 percent of the trash in the Great Pacific Garbage Patch in just five years. In their latest press release, Ocean Cleanup said the first pilot parts are now in production and will be tested off the U.S. West Coast by year’s end. ----------------------------------------­----------------------------------------­---------------- Go to https://www.patreon.com/tomonews and become a Patron now TomoNews is now on Patreon and we've got some cool perks for our hardcore fans.

Passive radiative cooling: New material can keep buildings cool without the use of power - TomoNews
 
05:48
BOULDER, COLORADO — Researchers at the University of Colorado in Boulder have invented a film that can cool buildings without using any power. The new material measures 50 micrometers in width, which is slightly thicker than kitchen aluminium foil. It consists of a transparent polymer, tiny glass beads and a silver layer. The silver layer reflects sunlight through the plastic, preventing it from heating the building while the glass beads constantly emit infrared light and heat through a process called passive radiation cooling. The cooling effect is said to be able to keep the internal temperature of a home at 20 degrees Celsius when the outside temperature is 37 degrees, the Economist reported. "We feel that this low-cost manufacturing process will be transformative for real-world applications of this radiative cooling technology," Xiaobo Yin, co-director of the research and an assistant professor at the university, said in a press release. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Go to https://www.patreon.com/tomonews and become a Patron now TomoNews is now on Patreon and we've got some cool perks for our hardcore fans.

Space exploration: New Horizons finishes Pluto flyby, prepares for target 2014 MU69 - TomoNews
 
07:27
SPACE — NASA’s New Horizons mission is just two years away from its next target, a small Kuiper Belt object that orbits nearly a billion miles beyond Pluto. New Horizons is scheduled to fly by 2014 MU69 on Jan. 1, 2019, making it the most distant object humans have ever explored. 2014 MU69 measures between 25 km to 45 km across. Scientists are not sure how bright the object is. Its albedo reading, the measure of how much light reflects from a surface, may be 0.04 or slightly brighter. By comparison, Pluto has an albedo reading between 0.49 to 0.66, while Mars has a reading of 0.15. New Horizons is currently speeding at a velocity of 14.32 km per second relative to the sun. It is almost halfway between Pluto and its next target, a Kuiper Belt object called 2014 MU69. New Horizons was designed to fly well past Pluto. It carries extra hydrazine fuel for a Kuiper Belt object flyby and its communications system is designed to work from far beyond Pluto. ----------------------------------------­----------------------------------------­---------------- TomoNews is your best source for real news.

Vertical farming startup Plenty gets investment from SoftBank, Alphabet and Amazon - TomoNews
 
07:31
SAN FRANCISCO — San Francisco startup Plenty specialized in vertical farming has secured $200 million from investors including Japanese media corporation SoftBank, the parent company of Google, Alphabet and Amazon. Plenty grows their plants vertically on the sides of a tall tower. Lights are also arranged vertically to give the plants maximum amount of exposure. The vertical farm can grow up to 350 times more produce than conventional farm in the same amount of space, using less water too, Fast Company reported. According to the BBC, the firm is planning on building indoor vertical farms with the size up to five acres, which is roughly the size of big supermarkets like Walmart. The facilities will be built next to large cities in order to reduce the amount of delivery time. "We believe that Plenty's team will remake the current food system to improve people's quality of life," Masayoshi Son, chief executive of Softbank Group said in a statement. Plenty was founded in 2013. It now has 100 employees in San Francisco and Wyoming. The firm plans to supply its vertically grown food to market this fall. The firm is not the first nor the only firm specializing in vertical farming. Other firms such as Aerofarms, Bowery and Betterlife Growers are all promoting this innovative farming technology. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Go to https://www.patreon.com/tomonews and become a Patron now TomoNews is now on Patreon and we've got some cool perks for our hardcore fans.

Amazon airship: Amazon patents unmanned airship to launch its delivery drones - TomoNews
 
07:21
ALEXANDRIA, VIRGINIA — Amazon has filed a patent for a self-driving airship that can store inventory and be used as a base to launch delivery drones. Amazon’s airborne fulfillment centers would hover at an altitude of 45,000 feet and be the focal point of a network of unmanned aerial vehicles. The patent for the airship was filed in 2014 but only came to light last week, when it was uncovered by Zoe Leavitt, an analyst at technology research company CB Insights, Reuters reported. The self-driving airships would carry a cargo of Amazon products and unmanned drones to deliver goods to customers. The drones could navigate horizontally to their destination and would use little to no power, according to the patent. The airships would be replenished by smaller, unmanned service vehicles, which could carry workers, drones, fuel, and inventory. One potential use of the airships could be at big events, such as concerts or football games, where they could be used to deliver souvenirs, or food. Amazon has successfully tested deliveries by drone in the UK and is waiting for federal approval to roll out the service in the United States, USA Today reported. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

Ortega Mk. 1C submersible can take you 95m underwater - TomoNews
 
02:00
TWENTE, NETHERLANDS — Dutch engineering company Ortega Submersibles has developed an underwater vehicle that can ferry divers to depths of 95 meters — more than twice a deep as most recreational divers can swim. The vessel is named the named the Mk. 1C. According to information posted on the Ortega Submersibles website and a press kit from the company, the submersible can carry three people and 350 liters of cargo, meaning divers can carry more air or equipment as required. The 570 kg vessel is powered by two 10 kilowatt hour electric thrusters. These propel it at speeds of up to 16.7 kilometers per hour on the ocean surface, and 20 kilometers per hour underwater. The submersible has lightweight batteries that allow it to operate for 11 hours. The Mk. 1C also features on-board navigational equipment for below and above water as well as on-board air supply for each passenger. Ortega says its designs are based on the World War II Royal Air Force motorized submersible canoe project Sleeping Beauty. These were used by British forces for clandestine reconnaissance missions. Recreational scuba divers can usually swim to depths of between 30 and 40 meters depending on their training agency. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

Typhoon turbine: Japanese engineer develops wind turbine to harness power from typhoon - TomoNews
 
01:45
TOKYO — A Japanese engineer has designed a new type of wind turbine that he believes would be able to harness power from typhoons. Atsushi Shimizu founded a tech company called Challenergy in 2013 and invented a wind turbine that not only can draw power from the force of wind, but can stay functional during typhoons. The typhoon turbine consists of three vertical blades and a central rod. It has an omnidirectional axis so that it can respond to wind coming from every direction. Instead of driven by a propeller, the turbine makes use of the principle of the Magnus effect: air curves when passing by a rotating object, and the downward deflection of the air-flow produces a lifting force that counteracts the force of gravity, enabling the object to remain airborne. The blades are controlled by the central rod, which can be tightened to slow down, or stop the blades regardless of the external forces. Under normal circumstances, the typhoon turbine can achieve about 30 percent efficiency while conventional wind turbine can achieve 40 percent, ScienceAlert reported. However, conventional wind turbines could be damaged by typhoons while the typhoon turbine would be able to function normally. "Japan actually has a lot more wind power than it does solar power, it's just not utilized," Shimizu told CNN. "Japan has the potential to be a super power of wind.” According to the Japan Guide, about seven or eight typhoons pass over Okinawa prefecture each year, with about three hitting its main islands. Shimizu believes a single typhoon could generate enough energy to power Japan for 50 years. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

Solar tech: Device that collects water from hot desert air is powered by the sun - TomoNews
 
06:54
CAMBRIDGE, MASSACHUSETTS / BERKELEY, CALIFORNIA — Certain parts of the world still lack access to safe water, but a new contraption made by a team from the University of California, Berkeley and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology might soon change that. The device consists of metal-organic framework, or MOF crystals pressed into a thin sheet and placed in a chamber between a solar absorber and a condenser plate, Science Magazine reported. MOFs are a combination of organic and inorganic materials in a tightly packed matrix. Specific uses depend on the type of combination used. While some MOFs absorb gas, this particular one excels at absorbing water. The chamber is left open at night, allowing air to diffuse through the porous crystals, and water to attach to its interior surface. During the day, sunlight heats up the water molecules in the MOF, turning them into vapor that then condenses and is collected below. When tested under the same conditions as arid and desert areas, the prototype managed to pull 2.8 liters of water over a 12-hour period. The device is a significant first step, but still holds much room for improvement. For now, the team is working on making it better, particularly in terms of efficiency and output. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Go to https://www.patreon.com/tomonews and become a Patron now TomoNews is now on Patreon and we've got some cool perks for our hardcore fans.

Moon exploration: 50km cave could home the first ever human moon colony - TomoNews
 
05:56
MOON — A cavernous lava tube was this week confirmed to exist beneath the surface of the moon. The discovery was after by a team of Japanese and American scientists using data from the SELENE and GRAIL spacecraft to acoustically map the enormous lava tube. These tubes are volcanic underground passages formed by flowing lava to funnel the substance. Once the flow stops, the tube remains with features similar to a cave. The chasm is around 100 meters wide and 50 kilometers long, reported the Guardian. It is located in the Marius Hills region of the celestial body. The cave could provide shelter to astronauts during moon missions, protecting them from dangerous cosmic radiation. This could potentially allow for the development of a lunar exploration base. Details of the finding was published in the journal, Geophysical Research Letters. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- TomoNews is your best source for real news.

Bionic cat: amputee kitty gets fitted with prosthetic paws in pioneering surgery - TomoNews
 
07:17
SOFIA, BULGARIA — A stray cat in the Bulgarian capital of Sofia is getting a second chance at life after being fitted with prosthetic paws, the first surgery of its kind in Europe outside the United Kingdom. According to an AFP report, Pooh the cat lost his hind legs in an accident last year as a kitten. It’s believed he was run over by a car or a train. His difficult situation made him a good candidate for a prosthetic surgery method called ITAP, where the titanium implant pegs against the bone directly. The protruding titanium stems provide a secure attachment point for the cat’s paws to snap in, which are made of polymer and rubber. For the procedure to be a complete success, Pooh's skin will eventually grow over the bone and stems tightly enough to prevent infections. Now 10 months old, Pooh is running around fine on his news hind legs at Sofia's Central Vet Clinic, and has even been seen cleaning them. Another young amputee cat, Steven, has now also undergone the same procedure. These are Bulgaria’s first successful feline prosthetic surgeries, and the first in all of Europe outside the UK. In 2009, a cat named Oscar was fitted with prosthetic hind legs in a similar procedure in England, which cost roughly $62,000. Pooh’s surgery cost roughly $1,600, and was paid for by donations from the animal shelter that cares for him. Now that he’s got functional legs, the shelter is trying to help him find a new home. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Go to https://www.patreon.com/tomonews and become a Patron now TomoNews is now on Patreon and we've got some cool perks for our hardcore fans.

German company to build world’s largest redox flow battery in underground salt caverns - TomoNews
 
05:36
JEMGUM, GERMANY — A German energy company is building a redox flow battery in underground salt caverns that could power 75,000 homes. A redox flow battery generates electricity by a reversible reduction-oxidation reaction between two liquid vanadium electrolytes of the battery. When the battery is charging, the electrons pass through a membrane from the catholyte to the anolyte. The process is reversed in discharging. German company Ewe Gasspeicher GmbH will install its brine4power battery system in two huge underground salt caverns in Jemgum gas storage facility. Each salt cavern has the volume of 100,000 cubic meters. “The amount of electricity this kind of storage facility contains – consisting of two medium-sized caverns – is sufficient to supply a major city such as Berlin with electricity for an hour. It means that we will have built the world's largest battery,” Peter Schmidt, Managing Director of Ewe Gasspeicher GmbH told New Atlas. The battery is expected to start operating by the end of 2023. Flow batteries seem to have many more advantages over lithium ion batteries. The water-based electrolyte has no risk of explosion and the batteries typically last longer than lithium ion batteries. US company Tesla has announced last week that it is building the world’s biggest lithium ion battery in South Australia. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Go to https://www.patreon.com/tomonews and become a Patron now TomoNews is now on Patreon and we've got some cool perks for our hardcore fans.

Natural tooth repair: Alzheimer’s drug can stimulate tooth regeneration - TomoNews
 
03:38
LONDON — A team of British university researchers may soon eradicate the need for dentist fillings. Dentists traditionally use fillings to repair tooth decay and holes in teeth, but these are often permanent, meaning the tooth’s protective minerals never fully regenerate. According to a news release posted on the King’s College London website, scientists from the university have found that Tideglusib, a drug traditionally used to treat Alzheimer’s, can help teeth repair themselves. During testing, biodegradable collagen sponges were given a protective coating and soaked with the drug before being inserted into moles in mice’s teeth, reported the BBC. When the sponge began breaking down, researchers discovered that teeth were able to naturally heal themselves. The team plans to carry out the next phase of testing on rats, reported the Guardian. If that’s successful, they will then apply to experiment on human patients in clinical trials. ------------------------------------------------------- For news that's fun and never boring, visit our channel: http://www.youtube.com/user/TomoNewsUS Subscribe to stay updated on all the top stories: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCt-WqkTyKK1_70U4bb4k4lQ?sub_confirmation=1 Visit our website for all the latest, uncensored videos: http://us.tomonews.net Check out our Android app: http://bit.ly/1rddhCj Check out our iOS app: http://bit.ly/1gO3z1f Stay connected with us here: Facebook http://www.facebook.com/TomoNewsUS Twitter @tomonewsus http://www.twitter.com/TomoNewsUS Google+ http://plus.google.com/+TomoNewsUS/ Instagram @tomonewsus http://instagram.com/tomonewsus

Multi Elevator system by ThyssenKrupp is the world’s first ropeless elevator - TomoNews
 
06:59
ROTTWEIL, GERMANY — German engineering conglomerate ThyssenKrupp has turned a fictional multi-directional elevator into a reality. ThyssenKrupp’s Multi elevator system is the first ropeless elevator system. It uses the same magnetic levitation technology in bullet trains to drive the elevator cabins. The elevator system features exchangers, which is a section of the track that rotates to change the direction of the cabin, allowing it to travel horizontally or even diagonally. “When we decided to take this type of exchanger, which was one in about 20 different concepts we immediately saw, we found that this would also allow not only the change from vertical to horizontal but also to maybe any other angle in between,” Markus Jetter, Head of product development for systems and components at ThyssenKrupp told Wired UK. Standard rope and pulley elevators can only rise to about 500 meters and thus skyscrapers require building multiple elevators, sometimes on top of each other, in order to run from top of the building to the bottom. Elevator shafts can take up a significant amount of building floor space. The Multi elevator is built within a single, slim shaft that can fit as many cabins as needed. This technology could increase a building’s usable area by up to 25 percent and release the constraints in skyscraper designs. The system is being tested at the 246-m tall test tower in Rottweil, Germany. Three of the elevator shafts of the tower will be used to test the Multi elevator system. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Go to https://www.patreon.com/tomonews and become a Patron now TomoNews is now on Patreon and we've got some cool perks for our hardcore fans.

Great white shark vs killer whale: Dead sharks without liver wash ashore with orca bites - TomoNews
 
04:39
GANSBAAI, SOUTH AFRICA — Three great white shark carcasses washed ashore in South Africa in just one month in the first half of the year, suggesting that one of the ocean’s most feared predators is also being hunted. Orca whale bites were found on the shark carcasses, which were also missing organs including the liver, Hakai Magazine reported. The Dyer Island Conservation Trust said the livers were removed with almost surgical precision, offering new theories relating to the hunting behaviors and capabilities of killer whales. Great white sharks traverse the ocean as solitary creatures, but orca whales are often known to hunt as a pod. Orcas use their powerful tails to create strong underwater currents from below, forcing unsuspecting great whites to the surface. Once the shark is in position, the killer whale stuns its prey, flipping it over. It then lifts its tail out of the water and swings down with tremendous force, unleashing a fatal blow similar to a karate chop. The great white shark’s liver holds a high concentration of squalene, a steroid- and hormone-producing compound attractive to killer whales. Scientists believe the whales may be relaying the hunting strategy among their pod. The researchers think the sharks may be of interest to the orcas because their typical food sources are diminishing from pollution and climate change. Only four great white shark carcasses washed ashore in South Africa in the five years prior to these findings, Newsweek reported. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Go to https://www.patreon.com/tomonews and become a Patron now TomoNews is now on Patreon and we've got some cool perks for our hardcore fans.

End of the world: Astronomers say giant sun will destroy all life on Earth - TomoNews
 
01:26
LEUVEN, BELGIUM — Astronomers predict that all life on Earth will be wiped out in 5 billion years, as the sun balloons in size and scorches the planet. Scientists at the University of Leuven in Belgium used ALMA, the world’s most powerful radio telescope, to forecast the future of the planet, according to a study published in the journal Astronomy & Astrophysics. They predict that within 5 billion years, the sun will grow into a red giant star one hundred times its current size. The sun will swallow up and destroy its two closest planets, Mercury and Venus, and all life on Earth is likely to be destroyed. There is, however, a possibility the rocky core of the planet could survive. In 7 billion years, the sun will then experience intense loss of mass due to strong stellar winds that will see it evolve into a tiny white dwarf star. If the earth’s rocky core survives, it may continue to orbit the white dwarf star. The white dwarf star will be similar in size to Earth but much heavier. One teaspoon of its matter will weigh about 5 tons. The astronomers’ findings are based on an examination of L2 Puppis, an evolved star 208 light years away from Earth, which 5 billion years ago was very similar to our sun. The scientists said an object orbiting L2 Puppis is likely to be a planet, and further study could offer unique insights into Earth’s eventual fate. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

Plastic waste: Wax worms can eat through plastic, researchers find - TomoNews
 
07:39
SANTANDER, SPAIN — After years of trying to find a way to get rid of plastic waste, scientists may have finally found a solution, courtesy of an ordinary bug. Wax moth caterpillars that typically eat beeswax in hives have been found to also be capable of degrading plastic, according to a new study published in Current Biology. Polyethylene is one of the most commonly used plastics, with strong carbon-to-carbon bonds that render it resistant to degradation. Unlike organic matter, plastic materials can take hundreds of years to decompose completely. However, wax worms were able to make holes in a polyethylene bag in just 40 minutes, eventually eating through most of it in just a few hours. Researchers suspect bacteria in the worms’ guts are responsible for digesting the plastic and breaking it down into ethylene glycol, an organic compound. Scientists want to study the chemical process that allows polyethylene to be degraded, and maybe adapt it into a solution for managing the world’s plastic waste. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Go to https://www.patreon.com/tomonews and become a Patron now TomoNews is now on Patreon and we've got some cool perks for our hardcore fans.

Seed-bombing drones to be deployed in fight to reforest the Earth with one billion trees per year
 
01:08
Oxford-based start-up Biocarbon Engineering is planning to fight industrial deforestation by planting 1 billion trees a year using drones. Currently, 26 billions trees are cut down every year, while only 15 billions are replanted. The drones used by Biocarbon Engineering could solve the problem by making tree planting faster and cheaper. In a video made by the company, Biocarbon Engineering explains that the drones would first fly above a selected area, map its level of deforestation and report back its potential for reforestation. Then, automated planting drones carrying seed pods would fly one to two metres above the ground, following a pre-determined planting pattern, and fire germinated seeds into the soil. A small pressurized canister would provide the necessary propulsive force for the seed pods to easily penetrate the soil surface. The seed pods, filled with nutritious hydrogel to reduce the force of the seed’s impact with the soil, would then break open upon impact and allow the germinated seeds to grow. According to the Independent, one drone is able to plant 10 seeds per minute. With two operators controlling multiple drones, 36,000 trees could be planted in a single day. Biocarbon Engineering hopes to have the system fully working by the end of the summer. According to the Independent, the drone system is not as good as hand-sowing, but it’s much quicker and less expensive than traditional planting systems. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

Oxygen treatment: Doctors reverse child's brain damage with oxygen - TomoNews
 
06:18
NEW ORLEANS — A 2-year-old girl has recovered from severe brain injury after nearly dying from a drowning incident at her Arkansas home last year. CBS reports that on February 29, 2016, Eden Carlson fell into the family pool and remained submerged for fifteen minutes. Her heart had stopped beating, and though she was eventually revived, she had also sustained significant brain injury. After the accident, the toddler lost muscle control and the ability to walk and speak. She would not respond to commands, and could only squirm and shake her head. Doctors decided to wake up the girl's brain using oxygen, and started normobaric oxygen treatments, delivered at sea level pressure, twice a day for 45 minutes at a time. The results were immediate. She stopped squirming, was able to move her arms and hands more, and partially regained her ability to speak and feed herself. The girl was moved to a hyperbaric oxygen therapy chamber in New Orleans, where pure oxygen was administered at two to three times the pressure of a normal room. Once absorbed into the bloodstream, the oxygen triggered tissue repair and reduced swelling in the brain. Just 40 sessions later, damage in the toddler's brain had been reversed almost completely. But though miraculous, the little girl's case is but one case, and further studies are needed to determine whether the treatment would work for other patients. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Go to https://www.patreon.com/tomonews and become a Patron now TomoNews is now on Patreon and we've got some cool perks for our hardcore fans.

Gulf of Mexico: 'Dead zone' as big as New Jersey is largest ever recorded in the Gulf - TomoNews
 
11:40
GULF OF MEXICO — Low oxygen areas appear yearly off the coast of Louisiana, but 2017's "dead zone" is reportedly the largest ever recorded since 1985. According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, this year's dead zone in the Gulf of Mexico measures 8,776 square miles, which is roughly the size of New Jersey. The 2002 dead zone covered nearly 8,500 square miles, but the past five years have seen the area cover no more than an area of 6,000 square miles. Dead zones are caused by nitrogen and phosphorous, which are used as crop nutrients by farmers and washed into waterways by rain. Unusually heavy rains in the midwest are believed to have washed away more nutrients from U.S. farmlands than usual, sending them downstream via the Mississippi River. Nitrogen and phosphorous stimulate massive algal growth in the Gulf that eventually sinks to the bottom and decomposes. This decomposition process uses up the oxygen in the water, which renders the area uninhabitable for marine creatures. Dead zones are usually temporary, dissipating during fall and winter. But the effects of low-oxygen or hypoxic zones on certain species can be permanent, with studies showing it affects fish reproduction and stunts shrimp growth. Setting a federal limit on the use of crop nutrients may be one possible solution, but could prove challenging since it will need to be implemented in more than 25 states, reports NBC. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Go to https://www.patreon.com/tomonews and become a Patron now TomoNews is now on Patreon and we've got some cool perks for our hardcore fans.

Hydrogen power: Solar paint can generate endless energy from sunlight and water vapor - TomoNews
 
06:40
MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA — Researchers from the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology have invented a novel new solar paint that can turn surfaces into a hydrogen power generator. According to a study published in ACS Nano, the main ingredient is a newly developed compound called synthetic molybdenum-sulfide, which absorbs moisture and accelerates the splitting of water molecules. When combined with paint which contains titanium oxide particles, the resulting substance is able to produce hydrogen energy from sunlight and water vapor. Hydrogen is one of the cleanest sources of energy, and can be used to power various kinds of vehicles and equipment. The solar paint can generate hydrogen energy in remote locations, or hot and dry climates, so long as there is sunlight and moisture in the air. The researchers believe it will take at least five years to come up with the final product, but is confident that it will be cheap and accessible. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Go to https://www.patreon.com/tomonews and become a Patron now TomoNews is now on Patreon and we've got some cool perks for our hardcore fans.

This man's rare blood type has saved the lives of more than 2 million babies
 
01:11
CENTRAL COAST, AUSTRALIA — Australian man James Harrison is known as 'The Man with the Golden Arm' after his blood was used to develop an injection that has since saved the lives of an estimated two million babies from rhesus disease. Harrison, now aged 78, is from Australia's central coast. He has been donating blood plasma on a weekly basis for the past 60 years, CNN reported. "In 1951, I had a chest operation where they removed a lung — and I was 14. When I came out of the operation, or a couple days after, my father was explaining what had happened. He said I had (received) 13 units (liters) of blood and my life had been saved by unknown people. He was a donor himself, so I said when I'm old enough, I'll become a blood donor," CNN quoted Harrison as saying. Harrison has an unusual antibody in his blood, which was used to develop an injection called Anti-D, a medicine used to prevent rhesus disease. Rhesus disease is caused by an incompatibility that happens when a pregnant woman has rhesus-negative blood and the baby in her womb has rhesus-positive blood. The mother's body produces antibodies that destroy the baby's red blood cells during pregnancy. This process is known as sensitization. The injection prevents women with rhesus-negative blood from developing antibodies to attack the baby's red blood cells during pregnancy. "His blood is actually used to make a life-saving medication, given to moms whose blood is at risk of attacking their unborn babies. Every batch of Anti-D that has ever been made in Australia has come from James' blood," Jemma Falkenmire of the Australian Red Cross Blood Service told CNN. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

Smart shorts for men help aim to improve sexual stamina
 
01:35
PALO ALTO, CALIFORNIA — New technologically enhanced shorts have been developed by a start-up company that aims to help men improve their sexual stamina, and ultimately gain the ability to have multiple orgasms. VylyV, a start-up from Palo Alto, California, has designed smart shorts that help men perform Kegel exercises. The shorts are equipped with a vibration device that syncs to an app, which tracks pelvic floor movements. The app also allows users to play games by performing Kegel exercises detected through sensors in the shorts. The floor of the pelvis is supported by a layer of muscle tissue, which stretches from the tailbone to the pubic bone like a hammock. This pelvic floor muscle supports the bladder and bowel. In men, exercising this muscle through Kegel exercises also strengthens the bulbocavernosus muscle, which controls urination, allows for erections and ejaculation. VylyV claims the shorts aid in such exercises to build a stronger pelvic floor muscle and thereby support the functions of the bulbocavernosus muscle. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

Solar power: Window blinds with solar panels can block and harvest sunlight - TomoNews
 
06:20
LOS ANGELES — A California startup has designed window blinds with solar panels that can block out sunlight while harvesting the solar energy. SolarGaps, based in Los Angeles, has designed each slat in the blinds with monocrystalline solar panels in order to harvest solar energy. The blinds can track the sun path and automatically change the angle of the slats in order to optimize the its absorption of sunlight. The solar blinds are reportedly able to generate up to 100 watt-hours of energy for every square meter when mounted on the outside of a window, or half of that amount when mounted inside. Users can manually control the blinds and monitor energy-saving information via an app. SolarGaps hopes to raise $50,000 from Kickstarter in order to mass-produce the solar window blinds. ----------------------------------------­----------------------------------------­---------------- Go to https://www.patreon.com/tomonews and become a Patron now TomoNews is now on Patreon and we've got some cool perks for our hardcore fans.

Lunar habitat: ULA, Bigelow will launch moon-orbiting space station by 2022 - TomoNews
 
09:04
SPACE — Aerospace companies United Launch Alliance and Bigelow Aerospace are collaborating to put a space station in orbit around the moon. According to a press release from ULA, the lunar depot plan is aiming to place a Bigelow B330 inflatable habitat in low lunar orbit by the end of 2022. ULA's Vulcan rocket will launch the B330 into lower Earth orbit, where it will stay for about a year. While there, the habitat will receive supplies and get crew members rotated every few months. Two more Vulcan rockets will then be launched, and their upper stages — called Advanced Cryogenic Evolved Stage, or ACES — left in orbit. After propellant from one ACES is transferred to the other, the fully fueled stage will attach to the B330 and deliver it to its final position orbiting the moon. The companies claim the habitat can serve both as a platform for lunar business development, and a location for NASA to conduct exploration and astronaut training missions. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- TomoNews is your best source for real news.

Affordable housing? ByFusion turns waste plastic into RePlast bricks to make cheap homes - TomoNews
 
01:12
NEW YORK — A New York startup has developed an innovative way to recycle waste plastic, converting it into an alternative building material that can be used to build affordable housing. The company, called ByFusion, has designed a machine that is highly compact and modular. It can be powered by propane gas or electricity and can process all types of plastic waste, according to the ByFusion website. The plastic waste does not have to be pre-processed. Instead, it is shredded inside the machine before it’s made into a new material called RePlast and compressed into bricks. The RePlast bricks are not as strong as concrete, so are reinforced with steel rods, wire and layers of mortar. The company said RePlast has been used in projects including retaining walls in New Zealand and California, which have withstood environmental tests such as earthquakes. ByFusion has so far raised around $30,000 of a $250,000 target on Indiegogo. On its campaign page, it says the machine will likely be available in the U.S. by May next year. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

Medical drone: Researchers use drones to deliver AEDs to people suffering heart attacks - TomoNews
 
05:53
TROLLHATTAN, SWEDEN — Swedish researchers have tested using drones to deliver automated external defibrillators to those suffering cardiac arrest. In many cases, patients are too far away from hospitals to seek immediate treatment, and drones could be a faster way to help them. Researchers from the Karolinska Institute in Sweden attached an AED to an eight-rotor drone. The drone has autopilot and GPS functions and is painted a fluorescent color similar to ambulances to help people visually locate it. The trial was conducted in Norrtälje, a rural area near Stockholm. The drone was able to deliver the AED in just over 5 minutes, whereas the median dispatch time for an emergency ambulance was 22 minutes, the New Scientist reported. According to the American Heart Association, more than 350,000 cardiac arrests take place in the U.S. each year but only about 10 percent of patients survive. Their chances of survival reduces by 10 percent every minute without CPR and defibrillation, according to the New Scientists. “If we can decrease the time in cardiac arrest from collapse to defibrillation by a few minutes, hundreds of lives would be saved each year,” Jacob Hollenberg Hollenberg at Karolinska Institute told the New Scientist. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Go to https://www.patreon.com/tomonews and become a Patron now TomoNews is now on Patreon and we've got some cool perks for our hardcore fans.

Everyone panic! California fault line is leaking Helium from deep inside Earth
 
01:11
SANTA BARBARA, CALIFORNIA — A team led by a scientist from the University of California Santa Barbara have discovered that helium is leaking from an ancient fault line which suggests it is much deeper than previously thought. The helium leak was discovered along a stretch of the Newport-Inglewood fault that runs from LA’s westside to Newport Beach in Orange County. Samples of casing gases taken from two dozen oil wells along the fault line showed high levels of Helium 3, a gas whose only terrestrial source is the Earth’s mantle. The metamorphic rock blueschist rock was also found at the bottom of nearby wells indicating that the Newport-Inglewood fault was a subduction zone around 30 million years ago before the intersection jumped 40 miles east to the San Andreas fault. The study’s lead geologist Jim Boles said the results of the study indicate that the Newport-Inglewood fault is much more important than previously thought, although as of now they are not sure why. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

Climate change is making oceans lose oxygen
 
01:12
BOULDER, COLORADO — Research predicts that within 15 to 20 years, human-caused deoxygenation will be felt across the world's oceans. A new study published in the American Geophysical Union's journal found that oxygen levels in the world's oceans are beginning to drop as a result of climate change. Higher temperatures mean surface water absorbs less oxygen. Such surface water also becomes more buoyant and less dense. As a result, oxygen is less likely to make it into deeper water. The resulting conditions are dangerous to marine ecosystems, which depend on oxygen for survival. Already, coral reefs and other sea creatures are suffering adverse effects from a warming atmosphere and an increase in carbon dioxide that makes waters acidic, according to National Geographic. With the threat already underway, changes in the southern Indian Ocean and parts of the Pacific and Atlantic may be felt as early as 2030. Oceans in eastern Africa, Australia and Southeast Asia, however, won't feel the impact until the next century. Scientists say carbon emissions must be reduced if we want to slow the oxygen loss, according to the Sydney Morning Herald. But monitoring and understanding where the oxygen levels are dipping, and how it's impacting our waters, is also key. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

Quantum Communication satellite Micius sends entangled photons to stations 1200 km apart - TomoNews
 
06:56
BEIJING — China is leading the pack in terms of quantum space experiments after the country announced that setting a new distance record for beaming entangled particles from space to Earth. The experiment was conducted from the Quantum Experiments at Space Scale (QUESS) satellite, nicknamed Micius, in reference to a fifth century B.C. Chinese philosopher. It is believed photons travel more smoothly in the near-vacuum of space. Quantum communication relies on a phenomenon known as quantum entanglement, in which particles influence each other, even when separated by great distances. A photon can be split into pairs of entangled photons by a laser beam. The entangled photons influence one another, so that if one photon changes its state, the other reacts instantly by taking up a state relative to the photon. The photons remain entangled even when one is far away. Quantum communication could greatly enhance security, as any interception of the information will necessarily alter the state of the photons, thus giving away the eavesdropper. According to Science, the team produced entangled photons by sending a laser beam through a light-altering crystal onboard the satellite. The photons were sent to two receiving stations in Delingha and Lijiang, 1,200 km apart. Opposite polarization states were measured at the two stations, confirming the entanglement — otherwise known as “spooky action” — was achieved over a record distance. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Go to https://www.patreon.com/tomonews and become a Patron now TomoNews is now on Patreon and we've got some cool perks for our hardcore fans.

Flesh-eating bacteria: what you need to know to about vibriosis to avoid infection - TomoNews
 
01:28
HOUSTON — On June 28, 50-year-old Texas man Brian Parrott had to have his leg amputated after he contracted a flesh-eating bacterial infection from swimming in the Gulf of Mexico. The flesh-eating, hook-shaped bacteria is called vibrio, of which there are about a dozen species. The bacteria is known to survive in warm, coastal areas of brackish or salt water. Even the slightest of open wounds exposed to contaminated water allows the bacteria to enter the body. Species of vibrio are also known to invade the body through the consumption of bottom dwelling, bacteria-collecting seafood and shellfish, such as oysters. If the bacteria manages to enter the bloodstream, it can develop into vibriosis and lead to mild symptoms such as diarrhea and vomiting, or severe symptoms such as skin lesions, septic shock, or even death. Those with weakened immune systems are more susceptible to infection. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates 80,000 cases of vibriosis develop each year, with roughly 65 percent of cases resulting from contaminated seafood. The bacteria most commonly spreads during the summer months from May to October. The Texas Department of State Health Services notes that most people who come into contact with the bacteria through open waters do not develop infection. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

U.S. Navy reveals new renewable energy technology that turns seawater into jet fuel
 
01:27
Researchers at the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory have revealed a new technology that reportedly converts seawater into fuel by recovering carbon dioxide and hydrogen from the salt water and turning it into a liquid hydrocarbon fuel through a novel gas-to-liquid process. The two step process begins with the extraction of carbon dioxide and hydrogen from seawater. Scientists let the liquid pass through a cell which is subjected to an electric current. The seawater is next acidified by exchanging hydrogen ions produced at the anode with sodium ions. Meanwhile, the water is reduced to hydrogen gas at the cathode, and sodium hydroxide is formed. The sodium hydroxide is then added to the leftover seawater to neutralize its acidity. In the second step, the hydrogen and carbon dioxide are passed into a heated reaction chamber with an iron catalyst. The gases combine and form long-chained unsaturated hydrocarbons with methane. Longer hydrocarbon molecules containing six to nine carbon atoms are then formed from the unsaturated hydrocarbons. These are then turned into fuel using a nickel-supported catalyst. The cost of fuel is estimated to range from three to six dollars per gallon. Preliminary tests flying a radio-controlled plane using sea fuel have succeeded. The fuel could eventually be used for any vehicle without having to modify engines. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

Hydro- and solar-powered water wheel Mr Trash Wheel clears trash from harbor - TomoNews
 
05:16
BALTIMORE — An interesting-looking device has cleared over a million pounds of trash from Baltimore harbor since it was installed in May 2014. The device is known as Mr. Trash Wheel, which is a solar- and hydro-powered trash disposer installed in Baltimore’s Inner Harbor. The wheel is either powered by the current of the Jones Falls River, or by solar panels when the current is slow. The wheel then drives the conveyor belt. The trash in the river is lifted onto the conveyor belt and emptied into a dumpster inside. A boat then tows the dumpster away when it is full. Mr. Trash Wheel has a growing social media presence, with its Twitter account already having amassed more than 9,000 followers. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Go to https://www.patreon.com/tomonews and become a Patron now TomoNews is now on Patreon and we've got some cool perks for our hardcore fans.

Supervolcano: Scientists locate magma source beneath Campi Flegrei caldera - TomoNews
 
06:51
NAPLES, ITALY — Scientists have located the magma source of an Italian super volcano that's considered one of the most dangerous in the world. Campi Flegrei is a volcanic caldera to the west of Naples which last erupted in 1538, but was responsible for a series of small earthquakes in the 1980s, according to a new study published in Scientific Reports. Researchers have long puzzled about where the caldera's magma was coming from, and have now pinpointed the location of a hot zone about 4 kilometers under the nearby city of Pozzuoli. From 1982 and 1984, rising gas and magma caused ground in the crater to swell, but was prevented from rising to the surface by a deep rock formation. The magma instead spread out laterally, causing minor earthquakes. The caldera has grown hotter since, and with pressure building, scientists fear it could soon erupt and put the entire region at risk. Volcanologists cannot say for sure what the scale of any future eruption could be, but are closely monitoring Campi Flegrei. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Go to https://www.patreon.com/tomonews and become a Patron now TomoNews is now on Patreon and we've got some cool perks for our hardcore fans.

Here’s why Greenland’s ice is quickly melting
 
02:03
CORNELL GLACIER, GREENLAND — During summer 2015, Greenland experienced its highest rate of glacier melt. A new study, published on June 9 in “Nature Communications,” shows the record-high melt is linked to the anticipated effects of a phenomenon known as Arctic amplification. Arctic amplification refers to the faster warming of the Arctic compared to the rest of the Northern Hemisphere as sea ice disappears. It is fueled by a feedback loop: rising global temperatures are melting Arctic sea ice, leaving dark open water that absorbs more solar radiation, and that warms the Arctic even more. According to the study, the atmosphere and the oceans, combined are contributing to the melting of vast ice sheets off the coast of northern Greenland. The effects of Arctic amplification are unknown, but scientists believe it could change climates by slowing the jet stream, which circles the northern latitudes. Jet streams are narrow bands of strong winds in the upper atmosphere. They follow the boundaries of hot and cold air, and, in the Arctic’s case, keeps frigid polar air separated from warmer air in the south. A change in the jet stream could lead to significant changes in weather and temperatures across the world. The new study showed evidence that the jet stream may be slowing as hypothesized. A slowdown in the jet stream would wilder swings and allow it to bend far more north than usual. The study found that during the warmest summer in Greenland, the jet stream was reached latitudes never before recorded that time of year. The jet stream’s wacky northern upswing formed a blocking event — a stable, clockwise-circulating weather pattern — that hovered over Greenland. The high pressure system, called a cut-off high, drew in warm, moist air from lower latitudes, which led to the warmer temperatures and shockingly high melting. Researchers including those at NASA are currently tracking climate and ice melt patterns in Greenland. The Greenland ice sheet, earth’s second largest after Antarctica, holds enough ice that, if it were to melt entirely, it would raise average global sea level by about seven meters. And the melt could lead to ocean warming, world-wide. NASA researchers, as the first phase of the Oceans Melting Greenland (OMG) project, are mapping Greenland’s seafloor in order to better understand how warm water is melting glaciers from below in order to find solutions to preventing rapid loss of sea ice. The project commenced in 2015 and will continue through 2020 in hopes of providing more data and insight into Greenland’s glacier melt. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

Pet turtles cause Salmonella outbreak in 13 states, 37 people infected - TomoNews
 
04:16
ATLANTA — Pet turtles are blamed for causing an outbreak of human Salmonella infections in 13 U.S. states. Thirty-seven people from 13 states have been infected with Salmonella Agbeni linked with pet turtles. Sixteen people have been hospitalized but no deaths have been reported. According to the CDC, all turtles can carry Salmonella bacteria even if they look healthy and clean. The bacteria can even end up in the water they swim in. Kissing the pet turtles or place them near mouths can contaminate human bodies with the bacteria. The FDA has banned selling and distributing turtles with shells less than 4 inches long as pets since 1975. The CDC also recommends that households with young children should not keep turtles or reptiles as pets. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Go to https://www.patreon.com/tomonews and become a Patron now TomoNews is now on Patreon and we've got some cool perks for our hardcore fans.

Giant sound waves called acoustic gravity waves could be used to subdue tsunamis - TomoNews
 
05:17
CARDIFF, WALES — The devastating impact of tsunamis could be reduced in future thanks to the power of sound. Giant sound waves known as acoustic gravity-waves could be used to lessen the force of a tsunami before it hits land, according to applied mathematician Usama Kadri of Cardiff University. Kadri’s theory, published in the journal Heliyon on Jan. 23, states that two acoustic gravity-waves would be released from a mitigation station in the ocean toward the tsunami. The acoustic gravity-waves would exchange energy with the tsunami, spreading it out and reducing its maximum height. Kadri said acoustic gravity-waves could have reduced the height of the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami by 5 meters, which may have saved lives and property. Any system based on the theory would require the installation of early tsunami detection systems, which Kadri said is relatively straightforward. However, scientists have not worked out how to create acoustic gravity-waves yet, and this presents a challenging engineering problem. ----------------------------------------­----------------------------------------­---------------- Go to https://www.patreon.com/tomonews and become a Patron now TomoNews is now on Patreon and we've got some cool perks for our hardcore fans.

Direct air capture: Iceland opens first negative emissions power plant - TomoNews
 
05:50
ICELAND — Iceland has opened the world's first power plant that eliminates more carbon dioxide than it produces. The geothermal plant in cooperation with Climeworks will remove an estimated 50 metric tons of CO2 from the air each year where it will be turned into limestone and stored in the ground, Quartz reported. The process works by pulling CO2 from the ambient air using a special filter. The heat from the power plant warms up the filter which extracts pure carbon dioxide. The gas is then combined with water and pumped 700 meters underground. When the carbon dioxide reaches with basaltic rock, it forms minerals. The project is still in the pilot phase, but researchers at Climeworks believe negative emissions plants could be set up around the world. One major obstacle in place is the price. Climeworks estimates it runs around $600 to extract one ton of carbon dioxide from the air. However if economies of scale can be utilized and more plants open up, that price would drop significantly. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- TomoNews is your best source for real news.

Massive asteroid: 3-mile-wide 3200 Phaethon named after Greek destroyer to pass by Earth - TomoNews
 
05:59
SPACE — NASA has announced that a giant space rock will be passing close to Earth next month, but assures everyone that the fly-by is friendly, and not cause for concern. CBS reports that 3200 Phaethon is an asteroid with a diameter of 3 miles that has been labelled 'potentially dangerous' because its orbit crosses paths with the Earth. Phaeton will be the closest to Earth on December 16, when it is projected to be within 6.4 million miles or 27 lunar distances of our planet. It hasn't gotten this close since 1974, and isn't expected to swing by again until 2093. Phaethon may be named after a Greek demigod who nearly destroyed Earth, but those worried about a catastrophic collision can rest easy, since the giant rock is in a relatively stable orbit, and isn't a threat. Astronomers believe the asteroid to be the parent body for the annual Geminid meteor shower, which happens when the Earth passes through Phaethon's debris field. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- TomoNews is your best source for real news.

China revives plans to build world's longest sea tunnel
 
01:11
China plans to invest 260 billion yuan, or roughly $42 billion, to revive plans to build the world's longest undersea tunnel, according to Reuters. The plan, originally proposed in 1994, would link China's eastern and northeastern regions. The 123-km tunnel running between Dalian in Liaoning province and Yantai in Shandong, would shorten the trip between the two cities from one day to just one hour. Building undersea tunnels typically requires lengthy exploration work as tunnels must run through soil and rock layers of varying hardness. The areas proximity to two earthquake fault zones presents another challenge. The region saw a 7.4 magnitude earthquake occur in the Bohai Sea in 1969 and a 7.3 magnitude earthquake hit Haicheng in southern Liaoning in 1975. The state media announcement did not say when the project would be completed. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

01:12
Obrum, part of Poland Defence Holdings, has revealed its latest product, the Tank PL-01 CONCEPT at the MSPO 2013 defence exhibition. In cooperation with Polish companies and British conglomerate BAE Systems, the PL-01 which weighs 35 tonnes, measures 7 meters long, 3.8 meters wide and 2.8 meters high. Three people can fit in the hull of the vehicle. The Adaptiv technology protects the tank from detection. An array of hexagonal Peltier plates on the surface can be heated and cooled to project a desired image, such as the background and or a separate object, making the tank invisible. The tank is also equipped with a system of 350-degree continuous observation day and night. Comprised of a chassis with an unmanned turret that has an autoloading 105 mm or 120 mm caliber cannon, the PL-01 is intended to act as a fire support combat vehicle. According to Poland Defence Holdings, production on the PL-01 is expected to begin in 2018 with exports to take place in 2022. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

Man with completely severed spine walks again after breakthrough surgery
 
01:12
A paralysed 38-year-old man regained his ability to walk after receiving a pioneering spinal cord repair procedure that was performed in Poland in collaboration with researchers in London. The Bulgarian patient, who suffered a paralyzing spinal cord injury in a 2010 knife attack, is believed to be the first person in the world to recover from a complete severing of the spinal nerves. Patients with partial spinal injury have made significant recoveries, but having severed ends of the spinal cord grow back together was previously thought to be impossible. For the procedure, which was performed at Wroclaw Medical University, olfactory ensheathing cells were taken from one of the patient’s olfactory bulbs in his nose, along with strips of nerve tissue from his ankle. The technique was discovered by scientists at University College London’s institute of neurology. The cells, known as OECs, were cultured and injected around the damaged site on the spinal cord. The nerve tissue was grafted across the gap on the spinal cord. The researchers believe that the injected cells stimulated the inert spinal cord cells to regenerate, using the nerve strips as a bridge fill the gap in the spinal cord. The patient has since regained function in his lower limbs. He can now walk with a frame, and has even been able to drive a car. If the hospital receives sufficient funding, three more paralyzed patients are expected to be treated in Poland over the next three to five years. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

'Smog-eating' pavement cuts pollution dramatically
 
01:10
Scientists in the Netherlands have come up with a novel way to cut air pollution: smog-eating pavements. Researchers at Eindhoven University of Technology installed the pavement, made from pavement tiles sprayed with nanoparticles of titanium dioxide in the town of Hengelo. Titanium dioxide nanoparticles are photocataytic and combine with UV to break down a range of molecules including nitrogen oxides. In tests the pavement reduced NOx pollution by up to 45 percent under ideal conditions. Several authorities in the US including the Missouri Department of Transportation have also been experimenting with similar smog-eating products including concrete and roof tiles. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

Space discoveries: Planet 10 could be luring at the edge of the Solar System - TomoNews
 
07:46
TUCSON, ARIZONA — U.S. scientists have found evidence to support the existence of the unseen Planet 10, which is much closer than the previously reported Planet Nine, a planet that has not yet been fully proven to exist. The Kuiper Belt is a disc-shaped region that contains icy bodies, space rocks and dwarf planets such as Pluto. It is understood that Kuiper Belt objects orbit the sun with an orbital tilt, while those at least some 50 astronomical units away from the sun should not. However, it has been discovered by scientists at University of Arizona’s Lunar and Planetary Laboratory that a group of Kuiper Belt objects located between 50 to 80 AU from the sun are tilted away from the invariable plane by eight degrees, suggesting a large object with sufficient gravitational influence is causing the warp. “There is a range of uncertainties for the measured warp, but there is not more than 1 or 2 percent chance that this warp is merely a statistical fluke of the limited observational sample of KBOs," Renu Malhotra, a Regents’ Professor of Planetary Sciences at LPL explains in a press release. The scientists believe the warp is most likely caused by an unseen object, which is possibly as massive as Mars and is orbiting roughly 60 AU from the sun on an orbit tilted by eight degrees to the average plane of the known planets. Planet Nine, the hypothetical planet discovered in 2016, is predicted to be the equivalent of about 10 Earth masses and located between 500 to 700 AU. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Go to https://www.patreon.com/tomonews and become a Patron now TomoNews is now on Patreon and we've got some cool perks for our hardcore fans.

Little girls in Dominican Republic village grow penis at age 12
 
01:15
SALINAS, DOMINICAN REPUBLIC — In the village of Salinas in the Dominican Republic, one in 90 girls possess a rare genetic disorder that causes them to become boys at puberty. Known as "guevedoces", or "penis at 12", the children are born with external genitalia that appear female but develop male sex organs once they hit puberty. The BBC reports that this condition was first studied by Cornell endocrinologist Julianne Imperato in the 1970s and appears to be the result of a 5-alpha-reductase enzyme deficiency that prevents the hormone dihydro-testosterone (DHT) from being formed in the womb. Sex organs are typically developed during the second month of pregnancy. In males, DHT is responsible for the formation of the penis. Females do not produce DHT and thus develop a clitoris. The guevedoces, who are missing the 5-alpha-reductase enzyme, are unable to produce DHT and so appear female when they are born. According to the U.S. National Library of Medicine, once puberty hits, another surge of testosterone hits the body, and this time the penis and testes form fully. The new organs, though undersized, usually work fine, and individuals tend to live out their lives as men. The condition is rarely seen outside the Dominican Republic, where it is so common that the country now believes there are three sexual categories: male, female, and pseudohermaphrodite. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

Self-driving vehicle delivery: Ford unveils autonomous van equipped with delivery drones - TomoNews
 
05:17
DETROIT — Ford Motor Company has unveiled plans to combine autonomous vans and delivery drones to transport goods directly to a customer’s doorstep. Ford introduced the Autolivery concept at the 2017 Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, the International Business Times reported. The concept is an electric self-driving van with deployable quadrocopter drones that can pick up and drop off packages at a person’s residence, according to Motor Trend. In a demonstration video released by Ford, the process could start out with a customer placing an order through a mobile application. Packages would then be loaded into compartments on the autonomous van. Next, the Autolivery van would drive to the customer’s residence, where he or she could pick up the package from the van. But if the customer needed a package delivered, the package would moved to the top of the van where on-board drones could access them. The drones would then fly the package to the residence and drop them off at designated landing pads. Ford envisions the end-to-end delivery service could be used for things such as online shopping orders, weekly groceries as well as medical supplies. ----------------------------------------­----------------------------------------­---------------- Go to https://www.patreon.com/tomonews and become a Patron now TomoNews is now on Patreon and we've got some cool perks for our hardcore fans.
