Research leads to a golden discovery for wearable technology

Some day, your smartphone might completely conform to your wrist, and when it does, it might be covered in pure gold, thanks to researchers at Missouri University of Science and Technology.

Writing in the March 17 issue of the journal Science, the Missouri S&T researchers say they have developed a way to “grow” thin layers of gold on single crystal wafers of silicon, remove the gold foils, and use them as substrates on which to grow other electronic materials.

tomorrow’s damallsvenskan game between the two top teams Rosengård and Linköping will be televised. Game starts 4 pm CET. i will come back with a link closer to kick-off, there’s a possibility of it being geo-blocked, but there are ways to get aroumd that.


“I was hoping to come back and play in the US.” This is what Elli Reed’s sentiments were when she heard a new women’s league was starting in the United States. Reed was playing in Germany, for FCR 2001 Duisburg, in 2012 and the early parts of 2013. A graduate of the famous University of Portland Pilots, Reed was really excited to be back in the friendly confines of the Pacific Northwest when it was official that she had signed with Seattle.

A team that has not been short of stars since the first year, it might be easy to overlook those that aren’t always on the starting eleven week after week. To where it might be a surprise to some that they have been there since day one. It does not mean diminish their value and what they bring to the team.

Whatever is asked of her to do on the field, Elli Reed just goes and does it. The way other Reign players speak of her, they’re not just speaking about a teammate, they are speaking of a friend. With new faces on the team already making some very noticeable contributions on the field, you can’t help but wonder what an influence someone like Elli Reed as one of the team’s veterans is having. This is the mark of a consummate professional.

Thank You, Elli.


W25 Weeks OOR Challenge
Week 02: How did you become a fan?

I kinda said how I got into oor in the week 1 post (oops) but I guess I could do a more thorough explanation here. I discovered Hiro through his collab with Nano on Savior of Song when the MV for it was released. Found out that he was in My First Story and then a little later, found out about Taka’s existance lol. I think my first impression of him was like, who is this scruffy looking guy with his poodle hair HAHA but yeah, still love them both ❤️ 

(Gifset is FCR bc WAYWAW tour happened around when I joined!)
