Everyone should start doing this
Reblog for good grades
Worth a shot.
My professor actually recommended this!
And if you find an article which you want to use, but all you get is the abstract and not the full article, go on Ask a Librarian and tell them what you need, give them the DOI of that specific article you found, and they can find you that article online FOR FREE
and when citing, don’t use Easybib for APA, but use Bibme because on Easybib you gotta pay for everything not MLA.
Go on Ask a Librarian to help you with loads of shit. Like databases. Databases are hella. Use the super common ones like EBSCO, and Gale, and shit like that like take advantage of that if you have a lunar at card for your county, check on the library website for databases. Use those for research in school!
Also make sure that the the article or whatever you’re using is peer reviewed if you want it to be scholarly, because if it’s not then it’s only academic and not scholarly. Common mistake made.
And if you DO use a website, make sure that it’s actually reliable. Not all .org or .edu are reliable. There are some .com which are reliable, but not all. Dig into it, find out what’s good. Check who wrote the shit. Check their credentials. If you can’t find any, probably shouldn’t use that site. Remember, you are hardly ever gonna find scholarly websites (idk if they exist. P sure they do), but academic is possible.
Check the sources. Find better resources. Better resources=better work produced from you. Better research skills.
Swing Set Table
The Swing Table by Duffy London is a creative design that features eight hanging chairs that sway playfully. This four poster table uses its structure to suspend a central GEO lampshade and the swing seats, offering users an entertaining dining experience. Moreoever, vaccumming is a breeze with chairs that hover around the table. Inspired by a George Bernard Shaw quote: “We dont stop playing because we grow old, we grow old because we stop playing,” this table certainly brings out the kid in all of us.
The Swing Table is available online at the Duffy London website and retails at approximately US$7,800.
3D printing with stem cells could lead to printable organs
A potentially breakthrough 3D-printing process using human stem cells could be the precursor to printing organs from a patient’s own cells.
Some day in the future, when you need a kidney transplant, you may get a 3D-printed organ created just for you. If scientists are able to achieve that milestone, they may look back fondly at a breakthrough printing process pioneered by researchers at Heriot-Watt University in Scotland in collaboration with Roslin Cellab, a stem cell technology company.
The printer creates 3D spheroids using delicate embryonic cell cultures floating in a “bio ink” medium. They end up looking like little bubbles. Each droplet can contain as few as five stem cells. Basically, this comes down to the printer “ink” being stem cells rather than plastic or another material.
Dr. Will Shu is part of the research team working on the project. “In the longer term, we envisage the technology being further developed to create viable 3D organs for medical implantation from a patient’s own cells, eliminating the need for organ donation, immune suppression, and the problem of transplant rejection,” Shu said in a release from Heriot-Watt.
Perhaps most importantly, the stem cells survived the printing process and remained viable. Shu says this is the first time human embryonic stem cells have been 3D printed. Printing out organs may be far down the line, but it’s just one potential application. The method could also be used to print out human tissue for drug testing.
The research results have just been published in Biofabrication under the title “Development of a valve-based cell printer for the formation of human embryonic stem cell spheroid aggregates.”
I don’t think this is “could be” scenario. This IS happening right now, and we absolutely will be using 3D-printing technology in this way, probably sooner than we even expect.
Fucking hell science is amazing and I want to squish and hug those people so hard for being so amazing ok.
