 Clean water is a vital element we could not live without. To continue to sustain this resource, researchers came up with a system that could extract clean water out of thin air. They used solar energy technology as an effective means to overcome water-shortage, dry spell, or drought. This technology resorts to hydrogels – gel-polymer hybrid materials – designed to function like “super sponges” with the capability of holding a huge volume of water. Lead...

Pi Day is generally celebrated on March 14 which is a yearly affair of the mathematical sign Pi (π). Physicist Larry Shaw established the event on that date due to the numerical value (3.14) outlining the first 3 digits of Pi. Definition Pi is the ratio of a circle’s circumference to its diameter. The diameter of the circle is the expanse from one side to its other side with a straight line that measures the...

Blockchain never ceases to prove its importance and capabilities, not only in terms of cryptocurrency and various industries but also in saving energy and preserving the environment. Bitcoin mining has earned a bad reputation because of the massive energy it consumes. Generally, this energy is produced by power stations powered by fossil fuels while also using other hazardous procedures. It contaminates the atmosphere with dangerous pollutants and adds to the Bitcoin’s vast carbon footprint. According...

Carbon dioxide emitted by vehicles, coal plants, and factories are being turned back into coal. Magic? It’s science. Climate change gets worse by the minute. While storms lash the midwest part of the planet, the other side of the Earth endures drought and heat wave. Until now the debate over global warming is not over whether it is true or not. Different environmentalists and conservationists around the world keep track of what is happening and...

The invention and introduction of the Internet created digital media and its impact on the new world is immeasurable.  Digital media largely affects the way we convey, impart, comprehend, strive, and allocate recreation. The digital media literacy enables us to access, discern, and engage or construct. Those who are not yet adapted could become included in the “digital divide” and factored out. There are upsides and downsides to the effect of digital media in today’s world....
