According to professor Peter Lodahl, it is a crucial step in the effort to take the development of quantum technology to the next level and to “quantize” computers, encryption, and the internet.

By doing so, we’ve revealed the key to scaling up the technology, which is crucial for the most ground-breaking of quantum hardware applications,” says Lodahl.

According to Lodahl, just 100 photons emitted from a single quantum light source will contain more information than the world’s largest supercomputer can process.

“We weren’t sure at first if it would work,” Cai said in a statement, “but we ultimately discovered we could use neutrinos to measure the size and shape of the protons that make up the nuclei of atoms.”

Kevin McFarland, the Dr. Steven Chu Professor in Physics at Rochester University, called the new method a “very indirect way of measuring something.” However, he says that the team’s approach “allows us to relate the structure of an object—in this case, a proton—to how many deflections we see in different angles.”

“Because our measurement is unambiguously a measurement of this other description of the proton’s shape that the ‘axial vector form factor’ provides, it can now be used to predict other processes,” McFarland told The Debrief, which includes the results of neutrinos scattering from neutrons, or possibly even neutrinos or antineutrinos scattering against the bound protons and neutrons within an atom’s nucleus.

Researchers from Columbia University in New York say an anti-inflammatory drug can rejuvenate the system which makes blood — possibly increasing the human lifespan by decades!

Passegué and graduate student Carl Mitchell discovered the anti-inflammatory drug anakinra, approved for use in rheumatoid arthritis cases, reverses some of the effects of aging on the hematopoietic system.

“Treating elderly patients with anti-inflammatory drugs blocking IL-1B function should help with maintaining healthier blood production,” Passegué says, who hopes this study will soon lead to clinical trials.

In 2015, when NASA's New Horizons spacecraft encountered the Pluto-Charon system, the Southwest Research Institute-led science team discovered interesting, geologically active objects instead of the inert icy orbs previously envisioned.

These new models suggest that when the moon's internal ocean froze, it may have formed the deep, elongated depressions along its girth but was less likely to lead to cryovolcanoes erupting with ice, water and other materials in its northern hemisphere.

Fractures in the ice shell may be the initiation points of these canyons along the global tectonic belt of ridges that traverse the face of Charon, separating the northern and southern geological regions of the moon.

  • Summary

In 1987, the international Montreal Protocol aimed to reduce damage to the ozone layer by phasing out harmful CFCs, which were widely used for refrigeration, solvents, in aerosols and for industrial activities.

“It's been quoted as the most successful global environmental treaty there's ever been,” says Martyn Chipperfield, professor at the University of Leeds and senior researcher at the UK’s National Centre for Earth Observation.

Successful global coordination to ban harmful chlorofluorocarbon (CFC) gasses and restore the ozone was a rare climate triumph – but can it be replicated in the face of a potential new threat?

Madonna responds to ageist reaction to her Grammys appearance and blames ‘long lens camera’

1 min, 4 secs

Summary

Madonna has fired back at critics of her “puffy” Grammys appearance in a scathing Instagram post taking aim at “the glare of ageism and misogyny” society subjects women to.

In a lengthy post shared with her 18.7 million followers, Madonna said it an “honor” to introduce LGBTQ pop superstars Sam Smith and Kim Petras for their performance of Unholy at the event on Monday.

However, it was Madonna’s “unrecognisable” plump and smooth face that stole the show and took the attention away from the “history-making moment” after Petras became the first openly trans person to win a Grammy in the Best Pop Duo/Group Collaboration category with Smith.

Hold that Mercedes-Benz GLE or Volvo XC90 order! Heavily updated 2023 BMW X5 and X6 SUVs confirmed for Australia

1 min, 5 secs

Summary

Starting from $134,900 before on-road costs for its base X5 xDrive30d variant, the X5 now comes with more power and more features than its predecessor to justify the $8000 price increase - the xDrive30d used to be a $126,900 offering, and there was a lower entry grade in the xDrive25d for $109,900.

The engines in the X5 and X6 range are now electrified with 48V transmission-integrated mild-hybrid systems, which means even the entry-level 3.0-litre twin-turbo diesel 30d is more powerful than before at 210kW and 650Nm, and can hit 100km/h in a claimed 6.1 seconds.

Inside the cabin, a flat, floating display arrangement for the 14.9-inch multimedia screen and 12.3-inch instrument cluster replaces the previous cowled cluster and separate central screen, while a simplified dash moves some controls to the brand’s digital iDrive multimedia control system, running BMW OS8.

Summary

It’s developed by studio PLUTONIZATION, based in the same location, with publishing duties falling to Z-Challenger (who are also currently helping run an esports competition with a €150,000 prize pool).

The project is heavily influenced by circuit and drift-racer brothers and producers Jason and Pluto Mok, ensuring the game has a solid basis in reality.

There’s huge potential here, though, and if PLUTONIZATION can optimise the user experience and improve controller feedback Rev to Vertex will be a hit among the Touge racing community.

Can Microwaves Increase the Sustainability in the Chemicals Industry?

50 secs

Summary

Recently, researchers from Osaka University in Japan published a study in the journal RSC Advances in which they showed how microwave irradiation can be used to significantly increase the suitability of the formose reaction as a source of precursors for industrial chemicals production.

Additionally, there is no documented use of microwave irradiation to achieve this goal, despite it being a widely used and environmentally friendly method to improve the speed and selectivity of chemical reactions.

By improving the efficiency and scalability of the formose reaction, the use of microwave irradiation could help to reduce the production costs and environmental impact of these important chemicals.

Summary

Researchers have found that Neanderthals in Portugal were roasting and eating crab at least 90,000 years ago, The New York Times reported on Tuesday.

In a study published in the journal “Frontiers in Environmental Archaeology,” the team noted the discovery of charred crab legs and claws in a cave just outside of Lisbon.

But the shells found in Gruta da Figueira Brava didn’t carry tooth marks or the shattering patterns seen after birds drop them on rocks.

Spread of antibiotic resistance revives interest in bacteria-killing viruses

54 secs

Summary

Bacteria-killing viruses can provide a crucial extra tool in the fight against antibiotic resistance, researchers believe — leading to increased interest in their use, alongside the development of new drugs.

However, in recent years, interest in phages has grown as bacteria evolve to become resistant to antibiotic drugs — a development branded a “pandemic” by public health experts and one that caused 1.27mn deaths in 2019.

A review of 59 clinical studies, published in The Lancet Infectious Diseases last year, found that, of 1,904 patients with chronic and drug-resistant infections treated with phages, 79 per cent showed improvement.

Summary

The Ministry of Health/University of Auckland research paper, which has not yet been peer-reviewed, found a “rare but statistically significant” link between the Covid-19 vaccine and myocarditis or pericarditis.

“These findings provide further reassurance on the safety profile of the vaccine, particularly from a New Zealand-specific context,” said Dr Tim Hanlon, from Te Whatu Ora’s National Immunisation Programme.

Association Professor Helen Petousis-Harris, a vaccinologist at the University of Auckland, said the research paper picked up a known safety issue with the vaccine - myocarditis had been found as a rare side effect in international studies.
