Do you believe that the potentials of blockchain technology are endless? Blockchain is indeed a revolutionary technology. Since its launch in 2009, it has not ceased to come up with features that complement the needs of various industries. The unprecedented technology now involves many sectors ranging from agriculture to banking and finance. Huge US companies such as JPMorgan, Microsoft, Apple, and Facebook all have instituted their own blockchain divisions. Noble deed from blockchain novel use...

Should technology be blamed for the huge volume in e-waste? With the continuous advancement of technology, people also want to keep up and own the latest gadgets. Old machines and devices that are irreparable or no longer in trend then add to the already towering pile of wastes. Dubai has come up with the solution to get rid of these electronic wastes through e-waste recycling. Electronic wastes or commonly known as e-waste are electronic products...

Is natural gas the answer to cheaper and sustainable energy for bitcoin mining? Bitcoin miners utilize a vast amount of energy. Thanks to natural gas – an oil drilling industry’s waste and by-product – bitcoin mining has found a new way to operate without consuming a large volume of electricity. In North America, the prices of natural gas have collapsed. Instead of transporting it to other regions to sell, the oil-drilling industry will just burn...

The huge global demand for energy made it necessary to tap into the different type of resources, including coal. However, some of these resources have only exacerbated the existing environmental problems caused by global warming. In Britain, a third of its electricity is expected to be generated by the turbines that will stand in shallow seas. These rotary mechanical wind machines will soon stand hundreds of square miles of the United Kingdom’s coastlines. Next in...

 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...

High demand but with little supplies has led to what we know as food and drug fraud. Food and drug fraudulence have become common throughout the global food and drug industry. Products have been wrongly labeled giving misleading information. Others are adulterated [or modified to exactly look the same as the original ones. Also, products can be added or substituted with harmful additives for monetary advantage. Ireland’s Food Safety Authority (FSA) conducted a series of...

The whole world is facing the wrath of Mother Nature and with the help of blockchain technology, environmental issues can now be addressed accordingly. Over the years, technology has aided in providing us with the luxuries in life. It has made it easy for us to live the life that we want. Electricity has been very useful in giving us energy to power our resources at home and in the office. Factories use coals to...

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....
