3D-printed bacteria ink could be used to treat burns

  3D-printed bacteria ink could be used to treat burns In a new study published today in Science Advances, researchers present a 3D-printable ink that contains bacteria and they say that depending on what species of bacteria it holds, the ink stands to have a number of useful applications. The scientists behind the material have dubbed it "Flink," for "functional living ink and it's composed of a hydrogel mixed with both bacteria and the nutrients required to keep that bacteria alive. It can be 3D-printed into nearly any shape, but the challenge was finding the right texture. If the ink is too stiff, the bacteria aren't be able to move and in some cases aren't able to secrete useful products, limiting their benefits.

Every year , Canada ’s wildlife biologists add or subtract a few species from their endangered and threatened wildlife lists. They hope their efforts prevent extinction, be it from human industry, disease or natural disaster.

This assignment requires some introductory research on endangered species . You will answer a series of questions about three species . The third species can be endangered for any reason.

Every year, Canada’s wildlife biologists add or subtract a few species from their endangered and threatened wildlife lists. They hope their efforts prevent extinction, be it from human industry, disease or natural disaster. With help from James Snider, vice-president of science and research with World Wildlife Fund Canada, we’ve highlighted three endangered species—land, sea and cave—that may have turning-point years in 2018, for better or worse.

In 2012, Environment Canada gave provinces and territories five years to develop habitat protection plans for this iconic species, whose boreal forest ranges from Labrador to Yukon, and which are threatened by forestry, energy projects and more. None met last October’s deadline. Ottawa’s doing its own assessment, and by April might enact habitat protection orders.

Team Canada GM: Many nations have chance for Olympic hockey success

  Team Canada GM: Many nations have chance for Olympic hockey success The playing field has been somewhat levelled with no NHL participation in the Pyeongchang 2018 Olympic men’s ice hockey tournament, says Team Canada general manager Sean Burke. “What really makes this Olympics interesting is that a lot of countries who didn’t consider themselves medal contenders or gold-medal contenders, especially if the NHL was to go, are now looking at this as an opportunity,” Burke said Tuesday on Sportsnet 650’s On Point. The NHL announced earlier this year that its players would not participate in the 2018 Games, ending a run of five consecutive Winter Olympics featuring the league’s players.

Endangered Species Day. Dates. The Third Friday of May. 18th May, 2018 . Or take the time out to read up on some of the species that are approaching extinction, and if you are able to go to a zoo which has some of these species in their care, be sure to organize paying a visit with your family.

Little brown bats

White-nose syndrome, a fungal disease, has killed millions of the mosquito-munching flying mammals. It’s mostly afflicting eastern bats, but will spread west quickly. “Once these populations are infected by this fungal disease, it can be devastating,” Snider says. Scientists say a probiotic spray shows promise, but it remains to be seen if it will work out in nature.

North Atlantic right whale

Twelve right whales died this year in the Gulf of St. Lawrence, from a global population of just 450. “If that happens again next summer, we’re in really dire straits,” Snider says. Ship collisions are common killers. Ottawa has limited marine speeds, and will set a 100-m buffer between ship and beast—will that be enough?

Halszka Fossil: Bizarre, Vicious Duck Dinosaur That Could Run, Fly and Swim Discovered

  Halszka Fossil: Bizarre, Vicious Duck Dinosaur That Could Run, Fly and Swim Discovered Modern geese are terrifying enough as it is, but this ancient goose-like dino would have been even more of a nightmare."The first time I examined the specimen, I even questioned whether it was a genuine fossil," lead author Andrea Cau, a paleontologist at the Geological Museum Capellini in Bologna, said in a press release. That's because the fossil, which has been named Halszkaraptor escuilliei, or Halszka for short, contains a weird mishmash of traits scientists are used to seeing from very different species.

Endangered Species In Canada . There are many trillions of living creatures, and millions of different kinds of animals and plants share our But, some of these species are in danger of disappearing forever, just as the passenger pigeon did. Each year about fifty more species are added.

Bees have been placed on the Endangered Species list. The decline in bee populations in the United States is a real dilemma that needs to be acknowledged because bees are crucial to human survival. This 12 Year Old Girl Could Cause Cannabis to Be Legalized Nationwide.
