Researchers find new way to beat antibiotic-resistant infections

Comments Off on Researchers find new way to beat antibiotic-resistant infections

Researchers have discovered a way to test bacteria for drug resistance more rapidly. It’s a potentially life-saving method that will enable doctors to find and attack bacterial infections quickly, instead of waiting for a day or more to find out to which drugs a patient might be resistant. More than 2 million people develop drug-resistant infections every year, according to Scientific American,  and 23,000 people die from those infections, due in part to an inability to diagnose and treat the infections quickly and effectively. The current method for testing bacteria for resistance is to “take a sample from the wound, blood, or urine” and expose it to a variety of drugs. It typically takes 16 to 20 hours to grow the bacteria and test it.

Rice Architecture Students Design Interactive Sculpture That Creatively Eavesdrops Across Campus

Comments Off on Rice Architecture Students Design Interactive Sculpture That Creatively Eavesdrops Across Campus

Most college students see contemporary sculpture as puzzling landmarks–useful only as visual markers and not to be touched. Rice University’s recently installed Soundworm! sculpture, however, rejects that stereotype. Made up of a series of bright yellow twisting steel pipes and embedded microphones, the installation serves as public seating as well as a creative eavesdropping device that collects conversation snippets from five locations on campus. The two-ton Soundworm! was built by a team of Rice University architecture students and was designed as part of a design charrette. + Rice University The article above was submitted to us by an Inhabitat reader.

Can Scientists Combat Climate Change by Bioengineering the Human Body?

Comments Off on Can Scientists Combat Climate Change by Bioengineering the Human Body?

Climate talks have stalled, and many countries view geoengineering — like cloud whitening or constructing a space-based sun shade — to be too risky. Could the genetic engineering of the human body to make people smaller and more energy-efficient, for example, be a last-ditch effort to combat climate change? That’s just one of the controversial ideas floated by authors S. Matthew Liao, Anders Sandberg, and Rebecca Roache in a new paper that’s set to be published in the journal Ethics, Policy and the Environment .
