Goodbye, login. Hello, heart scan

(University at Buffalo) Forget fingerprint computer identification or retinal scanning. A University at Buffalo-led team has developed a computer security system using the dimensions of your heart as your identifier.The system uses low-level Doppler radar to measure your heart, and then continually monitors your heart to make sure no one else has stepped in to run your computer. The technology will be presented next month at the 23rd MobiCom conference.

CONCLUSIONS: NIRF-guidance was successfully applied during laparoscopic PN, offering the surgeon additional information about kidney anatomy and perfusion. Our experience demonstrated the potential benefits of the new technology. The clinically relevance of selective clamping on functional outcomes is still a matter of debate.

In this study, we asked people in an open-ended way about their desire for longer life: Would you like to have more time? What age would you like to become? This was something more specific than asking about a preference for survival without reference to any length of time; about one's plans for the future; or whether people see the future as open or limited, as in studies of future time perspective. Our attempt was to discover whether there were preferred temporal spans with which older adults framed their futures and plans. The two-question series about extra years and desired age ("How old would you like to ...

CONCLUSIONS: On the basis of the reported association among CD, AS and CV diseases, we suggest to perform a more detailed CV risk assessment in all CD patients than what is currently being achieved in clinical practice, in order to scan and treat modifiable CV risk factors in these patients. In particular, we suggest to resort to instrumental techniques to detect AS in the subclinical stage, in order to prevent AS development and CV diseases in CD patients.

Conclusions We found that cholesterol depletion significantly affects the V-ATPase activity and the initial metastatic processes following a profile similar to those observed in the presence of the V-ATPase specific inhibitor, concanamycin. General Significance. The results shed new light on the functional role of the interactions between V-ATPases and cholesterol-enriched microdomains of cell membranes that contribute with malignant phenotypes in melanoma.

In this study, nano-porous zeolitic imidazolate framework-8 (ZIF-8) crystals were dispersed in amine monomer (piperazine) solution and intercalated in the polymeric thin film layer. Structure and surface property of the polyamide layer were changed by adding this hydrophobic and negative charged ZIF-8, which was identified by attenuated total reflectance infrared, scanning electron microscope, X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy, atomic force microscopy and water contact angle measurement. The TFN membranes containing ZIF-8 showed a water flux high to 55 L/m2 h with Na2SO4 rejection higher than 95% at 0.6 MPa. Moreover, t...

Publication date: 1 April 2018 Source:Materials Science and Engineering: C, Volume 85 Author(s): Lihong Qiao, Tingting Sun, Xiaohua Zheng, Min Zheng, Zhigang Xie Targeting imaging to the desired site of action can increase the accuracy and effectiveness of diagnostic and treatment. In this work, a series of fluorescent carbon dots (CDs) were prepared by varying molar ratios of d-glucose (Glu) to l-aspartic acid (Asp). Their photophysical properties, morphologies and structures were investigated in detail. More important, the targeting ability was screened by confocal laser scanning microscopy and flow cytometry. The resul...

Publication date: Available online 16 December 2017 Source:Food Bioscience Author(s): Anchalee Srichamroen Mucilage of malva nut seeds has been commercially produced as a functional beverage in many South East Asian countries. The purposes of this research were, first, to analyze chemical compositions of different layers of malva nut seeds. Second objective was to investigate the efficacy and dose response of malva nut gum (MNG) for the reduction of glucose uptake in Caco-2 cells. Third objective was to determine the effect of 30min pre-incubation of Caco-2 cells with various MNG preparations on the uptake of glucose. Cac...
