Attaching Fitbits to Port Jackson Sharks to observe their behaviour

A group of scientists has just discovered how modern technology can be used to study sharks out in the open. The researchers wanted to gain an understanding of shark behaviour and their whereabouts in order to reduce the amount and risk of human-shark interactions. Now, Macquarie scientist Julianna Kadar has just found the best method of using tagging technology to do just that. The researchers gathered Port Jackson sharks from the wild and attached a Fitbit like device – acoustic accelerometers – on the sharks to monitor their movements. The data collected by this new technology has since confirmed new information about the breed. https://lighthouse.mq.edu.au/article/august-2019/fitbits-throw-light-on-secret-lives-of-sharks

Oyster mushrooms from coffee grounds

The average cafe produces 60kg of coffee grounds each week and 93% of cafes will throw them away. In landfill, these coffee grounds create greenhouse gasses (carbon dioxide and methane) which are contributing to global warming. BUT coffee grounds are quite valuable. They make the perfect growing base for oyster mushrooms! BeanCycled is providing grow at home mushroom farms as well as composting projects for preschools and community gardens. www.beancycled.com.au

urlpreviewbox url= “Blue is an environmental movie with a difference. It captures the disaster that is microplastics and how they are killing our oceans and us. However it’s upbeat about what each of us can do. At the end of the movie there was a simple and effective presentation about what each of us could do the next day, and every day to remove plastic from our lives. No preaching just simple, actionable and repeatable actions. Worth going to watch and learn. https://bluethefilm.org/”

Fighting motion sickness using AI

ZF, a German supplier of car parts is working on advanced technology that will make someone less likely to feel sick on long journeys. Rather than curing the motion sickness, the purpose is teaching your car how to drive and avoid it. By analysing the correlation between motion sickness and the dynamics of the moving vehicle, the technology is intended to also store preferred driving styles of each passenger in order to prevent any triggers to feeling sick. ZF is wanting to reduce the feeling of motion sickness and discomfort – including dizziness, headaches and nausea. https://www.just-auto.com/news/zf-teams-with-scientists-to-combat-motion-sickness_id190113.aspx

Closed Loop Insulin Pump Aiding Type 1 Diabetic Patients

Insulin pumps have been around for the past decade, aiding type 1 diabetics in controlling their blood glucose levels. Previous pumps have required manual input for it to administer insulin. Recent developments of the closed loop system mean you are only required to add of discrete amount of insulin within a specific time that corresponds to the amount of carbs you are about to consume. The closed loop system then continues to monitor your blood sugar level throughout the day, automatically administering slightly more insulin as levels rise, and reducing the amount when levels lower. There are many ways to wear the pump. You can attach it to your belt, protect it in your pocket, or even clip it under your clothing. https://diabetesnsw.com.au/helpful-resources/news/artificial-pancreas-now-available-in-australia/

Nuclear energy that’s super safe and affordable

The next generation of nuclear reactors called small modular reactors (SMR’s) can be built in a factory and transported to customers by truck or barge. They could overcome Australia’s resistance to power by fission and lead to super-safe and relatively cheap sources of electricity using Australia’s vast uranium resources . Rolls Royce say theirs could be in operation by 2030. Good to hear that a Parliamentary Enquiry will be held in Australia to review opportunities with nuclear energy.  It seems that the following generation of nuclear energy  uses fusion which does not need Australia’s uranium. https://www.afr.com/companies/energy/the-new-nuclear-option-small-safe-and-cheap-20190813-p52gr6 http://old.ideaspies.com/small-nuclear-power-reactors-for-affordable-low-carbon-energy/.
