Researchers estimate that the human body could contain as many as 75 trillion cells. Each of those cells is surrounded by a bean-shaped membrane made up of dense rows of fatty acids that require protection from lipid peroxidation. Of the many popular antioxidants that help protect cells (e.g., astaxanthin, lutein, lycopene, CoQ10), vitamin E is the one nature chose to reside within the lipid cell membrane to protect its integrity. Vitamin E comes in the perfect molecular shape to do this job—like a tadpole, with a head and tail, similar to the phospholipids that complement the cell membrane. Vitamin E is distinguished by a chromanol head with a lipid-soluble side chain.  There are two forms of vitamin E: tocotrienols and tocopherols. Not all forms of vitamin E are the same, however. Tocopherols have a longer tail (phytyl), whereas tocotrienols have a shorter, more flexible tail (farnesyl).1 This small difference in molecular structure allows tocotrienols to cover a larger surface area of the cell membrane more quickly, hence making them more effective as antioxidants. As this article will discuss, an expanding body of research points to significant benefits supporting the tocotr...

At the beginning of 2019, the U.S. government was in partial shut-down, interest rates were rising,

At the beginning of 2019, the U.S. government was in partial shut-down, interest rates were rising, stock markets were highly volatile, and a majority of business leaders surveyed by the Associated Press expect a recession this year. But you didn’t hear such doom-and-gloom from the aerospace community. In the final weeks of last year, Airbus, Boeing, and Embraer confirmed orders for more than 400 jetliners. And, despite engine shortages and other supply-chain challenges, Airbus and Boeing delivered record numbers of aircraft – and each has seven or more years of production to work off a 13,450 airplane backlog. All those orders translate to jobs. Airbus is seeking about 600 experienced aircraft structure/installation mechanics, aircraft cabin installers, and aircraft electricians to work on the assembly line it’s building in Mobile, Alabama, to produce A220 regional jets – formerly known as the Bombardier CSeries. A recent Washington state aerospace job fair drew more than 1,500 prospective candidates to meet with nearly 40 companies looking to hire. Plans to continue ramping up build rates will require more production efficiency from suppliers. Airbus delivered 800 aircraft in ...

NASA’s Plan To Reduce Planetary Protection For Mars Risks Accidentally Extinguishing Second Genesis Of Life Before We Find It

Right now all our missions to Mars are sterilized to protect it from any Earth life that could hitch a ride and confuse the searches. A report by the “Planetary Protection Independent Review Board” recommends that NASA treats most of Mars similarly to the Moon for planetary protection. It comes with a cover letter from NASA recommending to their planetary protection officer that they implement the proposal. This would be fine if Mars was like the Moon. However, new discoveries show that Mars has liquid water there, in the form of brines, just a few centimeters below the surface. The measurements are indirect because we can’t visit most of these locations yet and can’t drill down even a few centimeters. There is now clear evidence of very cold brines even beneath the surface of the sand dunes that Curiosity drives over. Their suggestion is to reclassify large parts of Mars as Category II (current classification for the Moon), meaning that there are no niches where terrestrial microorganisms could proliferate, or a very low likelihood of transfer to such places. … where there is only a remote chance that contamination carried by a spacecraft could jeopardize future exp...

Christopher Kimbrough lives in the East End of Newburgh, an especially dangerous part of the city.

Christopher Kimbrough lives in the East End of Newburgh, an especially dangerous part of the city. When considering his family’s current apartment, on the third floor of the building, he and his wife judged its height to be a benefit, despite the walk up with their five children—the chances of a stray bullet flying through such a high window are remote. But what the 26-year-old Newburgh native is now more concerned about is the apartment’s lack of fire escapes. (Fire escapes are not legally mandated in Newburgh.) Neighbors have told Kimbrough that there was a fire caused by the building’s faulty wiring a few years back, and he figures that, should a conflagration block access to the building’s lone stairwell, the family would be left with only one option: jumping three feet to the neighbor’s roof. “Through my bedroom window, there’s another apartment building where they have a landing,” says Kimbrough. “Worst case scenario, that would be what we would have to try to get to—the building next door.” Kimbrough is a tenant of John Boubaris, one of the biggest landlords in Newburgh. As the owner of nearly three dozen local properties with a track record of problems, Boubaris is also ...

All 2,493 items targeted by China’s tariffs in US trade war — Quartz

China’s latest tariff retaliation, announced today, will hit some $60 billion in US exports, including hundreds of agricultural, mining, and manufactured products, threatening jobs and profits at companies around the United States.  Before the trade war starts in earnest, China bought about 17% of US agricultural exports and was a major market for other goods, from Maine lobster to Boeing aircraft. It has been the largest market for Apple iPhones since 2016. Since the escalation of tariffs, though, China has stopped buying soybeans and lobsters, and Apple warned it would miss its expected Christmas holiday sales figures because of trade tensions. In addition to the 25% tariffs below, Beijing also added 20% tariffs on 1,078 US products, 10% tariffs on 974 US products, and 5% tariffs on 595 US products (all links in Chinese). The list was translated from China’s ministry of finance press release using Google translate, and may be inexact in spots. Quartz also rearranged some items on the list to group them into categories, and they may not be in the order of their “harmonized tariff schedule” codes.  Compost Turner, Fertilizer Crusher, Fertilizer Mixer, Fertilizer Dryer – E...

Medical Device 3D Printing Market Future Demand Analysis with Forecast 2018 to 2025

3D printing is a process which makes use of a digital design to create a physical object. The process uses a layer by layer approach wherein each layer is attached to the prior layer until the object is complete. 3D printing technology in the medical device segment helps in creation of limb prosthetics, titanium replacements for hips and jaws and plastic tracheal splints, etc. 3D printing is preferred by many doctors before surgeries of any organ part which reduces error. The global medical device 3D printing market was USD 1.13 billion in 2018 and is estimated to reach USD 3.19 billion by 2025 at a CAGR of 15.89% during the forecast period. North America leads the market owing to factors such as increasing demand for organ transplants, highly developed healthcare infrastructure and significant government and private investments for the development of advanced 3D printing technologies and applications.
