In contrast to layman’s perception, biotechnology is not only about working in the laboratory carrying white lab coat and preparing medicines to enhance the quality of life. Good phones have improved folks’s lives- I was very late to the idea of a sensible cellphone- although I have labored in the industry for quite a few years. But now, I don’t know the way I ever lived without one. I began with a BlackBerry, went to a HTC and now I might never stay with out my iPhone. It is simply so damn convenient. I can ship and receive emails, make calls, ship and obtain texts and there are quite a few other functions that improve my life. It offers me a lot time again. I can respond to quite a lot of emails and do work throughout my down time through the day. For example, I typically write articles on …
These days it’s becoming more common to see people walking about with face masks on. This is done to prevent the breathing in of the COVID-19 virus. However, the problem with face masks is that due to the fact that many of us are not used to wearing them, it can be uncomfortable which results in us touching our face more often than we should.
This ultimately defeats the purpose of the mask, because touching our face could potentially allow the virus, which could be on our hands, to enter our body system. To help combat this problem, Australian astrophysicist Daniel Reardon came up with an idea to create a sensor that can detect and alert you if you’re about to touch your face.
The only problem was that during the course of Reardon creating the sensor, he ended up getting a pair of magnets stuck up his nose in
Create a space dedicated to work, outside of the bedroom and away from the couch, if you can. Put on some clothes you wouldn’t be totally embarrassed to enter the office in, and keep the TV off until you’re done for the day. It’s hard to believe, but when you don’t have the mental partition of a commute to and from the office to help you decompress at the end of a day, it can be difficult to disengage. Try powering down Slack or email at the end of the day and take a quick walk around the block. Even under a shelter-in-place order, most locations are letting folks get out for some fresh air and exercise. Just don’t forget to keep a little distance (about 6 feet) between you and anyone else who’s out and about.

Technology has done the world a great deed. We take it for granted, but it never complains, it’s only there to serve.
But perhaps in a time of virus outbreaks and lockdowns, taking it for granted might have not been the best of moves.
Virus or no virus, there are already available technologies that should have been widely implemented.
One of them is cashless payment or better known as e-wallets. It’s a form of transaction where you’ll just need to tap your phone or scan a QR code to make payments. The money will then be deducted directly from your bank account or from your e-wallet’s balance.
It’s super-efficient and just requires a phone to do. But yet, many vendors and consumers are oblivious to its benefits.
It would have been a safe alternative when buying supplies during the lockdown.
