A magnet is a material or object that produces a magnetic field. This magnetic field is invisible but is responsible for the most notable property of a magnet: a force that pulls on other ferromagnetic materials, such as iron, and attracts or repels other magnets. Large-scale magnets capable of high magnetic fields are a core enabling technology for many areas of scientific research, medicine, imaging,...

Often people tend to see disabled people as weak and incompetent but that’s just their thoughts limiting them from seeing beyond the disability. We are quite familiar with Helen Keller- an American author, political activist, and lecturer. She did not let her disability stand in her path of success and became the first woman to earn a Bachelor of Arts degree. Similarly, the legendary author...

In this struggle for relevance, for the right to rule yourself, and for the right to live a free life, millions are putting their lives on the line and millions more...

Science has an edge over both politics and religion. Unlike the other two; the former is based mostly on experiments and empirical data. The idea of an uncontested and ‘universal truth’ is far more accepted in this field than in any other. Gravity, for example, is widely accepted as a universal truth because its effect can be seen and felt by all of us, daily....

Cyber-security

“Cyber-security is now something that we must treat in our businesses just like we watch our balance sheets,” says Tom Kennedy CEO of Raytheon Company, the keynote speaker said to other business leaders in attendance at Northeastern University’s CEO Breakfast Forum.   Customers these days focus on the comfort, ease and, capabilities provided by the cyber-world. They want the value provided by the cyber-world but don’t focus...

Communication gaps are proving to be a big challenge and may turn into a threat, depending on the situation.   The managers cannot be present everywhere at all times and for every occasion. In...

Anaesthetics are often defined as compounds that induce a loss of consciousness in humans or loss of righting reflex in animals. Clinical definitions are also extended to include an induced coma that causes a lack of awareness of painful stimuli, sufficient to facilitate surgical applications in clinical and veterinary practice. General anaesthetics do not act as analgesics and should also not be confused with sedatives....

Pshchedelics

“How many of my readers are going to be interested in something that’s kind of fringy?” Micheal Pollan says from his office at Harvard, where he teaches nonfiction. "As it turned out, a lot of people interested in food were interested in psychedelics. They saw a common denominator that I hadn’t seen which was health. They trusted me to write about nutritional health, and that...

Superconductivity is the set of physical properties observed in certain materials, wherein electrical resistance vanishes and from which magnetic flux fields are expelled. Any material exhibiting these properties is a superconductor. Unlike an ordinary metallic conductor, whose resistance decreases gradually as its temperature is lowered even down to near absolute zero, a superconductor has a characteristic critical temperature below which the resistance drops abruptly to...

Artificial intelligence and ethics

There is a race going on in the artificial-intelligence sector. Everyone wants to get their hands on the next best thing as soon as possible. Ethics sometimes take a back seat in such cases. New technologies should be focused on human ethics and a universal desire to make life better for people around the world. This is a pressing concern when it comes to military...
