“Nanosensors — they may be tiny, but they have a huge impact.” Nanotechnology is an incredibly fascinating technology that is already disrupting thousands of important industries around the world. An essential technology within this field is the use of nanosensors. Advancements in nanosensors can open unprecedented perspectives for the application in various fields such as molecular-level diagnostic and treatment instruments in medicine. Graphene field-effect transistors (GFET) are a very exciting type of nanosensor that can allow us to understand our bodies on a molecular level and detect biomarkers at a level that has never been seen before, revolutionizing personalized healthcare.
Each day is 24 hours spent completing various tasks, whether work, sleep, exercise, or school. Yet in a typical workday of eight hours, people are only really productive for three, leaving five hours of wasted time. Much of this is centered around the idea of time management, the thing everyone tells us to do, but somehow very few of us can do it adequately.
Peter Thiel was a co-founder of PayPal, Palantir Technologies and Founders Fund, as well as an early investor in SpaceX, Facebook and LinkedIn. He was ranked #4 on the Forbes Midas List of 2014 and is the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Zero to One.
“Every moment in business happens only once. The next Bill Gates will not start an operating system. The next Larry Page won’t make a search engine. And the next Mark Zuckerberg won’t create a social network. If you are copying these guys, you aren’t learning from them.” -Peter Thiel
Graphene may be the next multibillion-dollar material, holding the key to healthcare, energy storage, computing, aircraft and many more exciting applications. It is a material that will fundamentally change the world and it is already being used to revolutionize many different industries today. So what exactly is this amazing material and why is it so important?
With so many emerging technologies in the world, what exactly makes nanotechnology stand out as one of the most prominent and promising new technologies? The answer, as you’ll soon find out, is its practically endless applications, from solar panels and electronics, to healthcare and foods. Nanotechnology is present in our everyday lives, often without most of us even knowing it, and it is in a position where it will only become increasingly integrated into our lives as a revolutionary technology that will affect major industries around the world.
Corn is one of the most important and plentiful crops that we grow for food. We rely on it for our agricultural needs and it consists of 95 percent of total feed grain production and use in the United States. During recent years, there has been a lot of controversy on the use of GMOs and genetically modified corn. Genetically modifying corn can have great benefits for crop growth and production but may also contribute to unknown consequences and effects on the environment. Before we dive into it, let’s first take a quick look at an overview on GMOs.
