    Abstract Every year, all humans produce around 1021  bits of digital information on Earth. A bit is a shorthand way to reference binary digits, which are either a 1 or 0. These are the base units that computers use to calculate everything. This study assumes a 20% growth rate which predicts that after 350 years from now the amount of bits produced will surpass the amount of atoms on Earth, and around 300 years from now, the amount of energy required to sustain the production of these digital bi...

    Abstract This study presents the use of radiant cooling in Singapore as a method for people to feel more comfortable and cool in warm and humid climates. The authors claim that radiant cooling is a viable alternative to traditional systems despite the widely held beliefs that the low temperatures required for radiant cooling to work would cause condensation, and the air in contact with the chilled pads would become chilled and thus reduce the effectiveness of the radiant cooling. This study prov...

    AbstractScientists have found that the COVID-19 virus binds to the angiotensin-converting enzyme 2 (ACE2) receptor to enter the cell. This study looks at how much ACE2 receptor is contained in the Central Nervous System (CNS) tissue. The ACE2 receptors in the CNS show if COVID-19 damages nervous tissue. BackgroundCOVID-19 and GeneticsThe entire genome analysis of COVID-19 showed it was an RNA virus. This test also showed that COVID-19 was found before in bats in China. ACE2...

    AbstractThe continuous improvement of Brain Computer Interfaces (BCI) displays incredible potential. This study reviews modern techniques, their respective sensors, and their commercial viability. This review of the BCI technologies and their sensors could be of use in demonstrating the importance of brain machine interfaces. Introduction A Brain Computer Interface (BCI) outfit BCI research aims to augment or repair human sensory motor or cognitive abilities with the development of advanced tech...

    Abstract Individuals with underlying medical conditions display a worse outcome after SARS-CoV-2 infection. This study looks at several underlying medical conditions and its effect on COVID-19 infections. Studies show that obese individuals are more likely to develop infections. The fat tissue serves as a viral reservoir, which makes it harder to control the infection. infection. Diabetic individuals show a higher rate of inflammatory conditions. Hypertensive individuals are treated with drugs ...

    Abstract     This paper uses baryonic matter which is composed of baryons. Baryons include subatomic particles such as protons, neutrons, and all objects composed of them (atomic nuclei), however it excludes leptons and electrons. This paper uses baryonic matter and a mathematical relation known as the Tully-Fisher relation (bTFR) to better calculate the H0, which is the hubble constant. The hubble constant is a number that can change with time, but is the ratio of the velocity to the distance o...

    Abstract     Humans have exposure to microplastics through a variety of sources on a daily basis. The health effects are unknown, and this study looks at all pertinent studies published up to September of 2016 in relation to health effects. Microplastics could accumulate and produce a toxicity that is localized to the spot where they gather. This could even induce an immune response. There is also risk in the toxicity that comes from chronic exposure and the chemicals added to the plastic. The t...

    Abstract Background: COVID-19 has spread around the globe. This study investigates the infectivity of asymptomatic carriers. Materials and methods: 455 contacts who were exposed to the asymptomatic COVID-19 positive virus carrier were the subjects of this study. Results: During quarantine seven members in contact with the asymptomatic individual developed new cardiovascular conditions. However, no SARS-CoV-2 infections were detectable in all 455 contacts by a nucleic acid test. Conclusion: All 4...

    Abstract Plastic pollution in the aquatic environment poses an enormous impact on wildlife and human beings. Currently, wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs) are a main source of microplastic and nanoplastic in the water. WWTPs do no account for plastic removal in their design. This study reviews possible membrane technologies that can be applied to WWTPs to filter microplastic smaller than 100 nanometers. From this literature analysis, the researchers discovered the removal of microplastics wit...

    IntroductionOn July 7, 2016, Philando Castile was shot and killed by a police officer. The unnecessary force of this incident can be seen in the past two weeks since this publication with the death of Terence Crutcher and Keith Scott. The disproportionate use of lethal force against communities of color is not a new phenomenon. However, the production of video evidence has allowed the traumatizing experience of black Americans to be more readily seen. The cause of this force is rooted in the str...
