Flexible and biodegradable semiconductor for electronics

Credit: Bao lab

A new semiconductor developed by researchers at Stanford University, USA, is as flexible as skin and easily degradable and is hoped to tackle electronic waste.

The team developed a semiconductor polymer that can decompose by adding a weak acid-based vinegar, a degradable electronic circuit and a biodegradable substrate material for mounting the electrical components. This substrate supports the electrical components, flexing and molding to rough and smooth surfaces. When the electronic device is no longer needed it can biodegrade into non-toxic components.

The substrate carries the electronic circuit and the polymer from cellulose fibres to make the material transparent and flexible, while still breaking down easily. The thin film substrate allows the electronics to be worn on the skin or implanted inside the body.

The electronic device could be used in wearable electronics and large-scale environmental surveys with sensor dusts. ‘We envision these soft patches that are very thin and conformable to the skin can measure blood pressure, glucose value, sweat content. A person could wear a specifically designed patch for a day or week, then download the data. According to Bao, this short-term use of disposable electronics seems a perfect fit for a degradable, flexible design,’ said Stanford engineer Zhenan Bao. 

Although the polymer was found to be biocompatible, Bao said that more studies would need to be done before these implants are used.

Chapter Twelve  The Secret Government  • 225

“For many years the Secret Government has been importing drugs and
selling them to the people, mainly the poor and minorities. Social welfare
programs were put into place to create a dependent, nonworking element
in our society. The government then began to remove these programs to
force people into a criminal class that did not exist in the ‘50s and '60s.
The government encouraged the manufacture and importation of
military firearms for the criminals to use. This is intended to foster a
feeling of insecurity, which would lead the American people to voluntarily disarm themselves by passing laws against firearms.
Using drugs and hypnosis on mental patients in a process called Orion, the CIA inculcated the desire in these people to open fire on schoolyards and thus inflame the antigun lobby. This plan is well under way, and so far is working perfectly. The middle class is begging the government to do away with the 2nd
amendment.
Author’s Note: I have found that these events have indeed happened all over
the country. In every instance that I have investigated — the incident at the
women’s school in Canada, the shopping center incident in Canada, the Stock-
ton, California, massacre, and the murder of Rabbi Meir Kahane — the
shooters were all ex-mental patients or were current mental patients who were
ALL ON THE DRUG PROZAC! This drug, when taken in certain doses,
increases the serotonin level in the patient, causing extreme violence. Couple
that with a posthypnotic suggestion or control through an electronic brain
implant or microwave or E.L.F. intrusion and you get mass murder, ending in
every case with the suicide of the perpetrator. Exhume the bodies of the
murderers and check for a brain implant. I think you are going to be surprised.
In every case the name of the murderer'sdoctor or mental treatment facility
has been withheld. I believe we will be able to establish intelligence-com-
munity connections and/or connections to known CIA experimental mind-
control programs when we finally discover who these doctors of death really
are.
Due to the wave of crime sweeping the nation, the media will convince
the American people that a state of anarchy exists within the major cities.

They are now building their case almost nightly on TV and daily in the
newspapers.
When public opinion has been won to this idea, they intend
to state that a terrorist group armed with a nuclear weapon has entered the
United States and that they plan to detonate this device in one of our cities.
(This is now being set up by the crisis in the Middle East.) The Government
will then suspend the Constitution and declare martial law. 

The media — radio, TV, newspapers, and computer networks — will
be nationalized and seized. Anyone who resists will be taken or killed.
This entire operation was rehearsed by the government and military in
1984 under the code name REX-84A and it went off without a hitch. When
these events have transpired, the SECRET GOVERNMENT takeover will be complete. Your freedom will never be returned and you will live in slavery for the remainder of your life. You had better wake up and you had better do it now!”

“I must warn you, however, that I have found evidence that the secret
societies were planning as far back as 1917 to invent an artificial threat from
outer space in order to bring humanity together in a one-world govern-
ment which they call the New World Order. I am still searching for the
truth. I firmly believe that this book is closer to that truth than anything
ever previously written.
I attempted to leak information to a reporter after my discharge. I was
forced off a cliff by a black limo in the hills of Oakland. Two men got out
and climbed down to where I lay covered in blood. One bent down and felt
for my carotid pulse. The other asked if I was dead. The nearest man said,
“No, but he will be.” The other replied, “Good, then we don’t have to do
anything else.” They climbed up and drove off. I succeeded in climbing
up the bank where I waited until found.”

My comments on this:

Firstly, William Cooper also predicted 911.

Cooper made these predictions before 1991, he was killed by police in 2001. Though some of his predictions are a little off in my opinion, he clearly had some knowledge in order to know this much back then. I think perhaps he reached in tying some things together.

He predicts drugged individuals will become shooters, but it seems that our goverment is hiring mercenaries, and using elf harassment to drive some people to do these things (florida state U shooter, navy yard shooter, miriam carey – they all reported electronic harassment before going full retard).

As for his prediction for martial law and increased control over the citizens, its going to take that to force them into accepting agenda 21 (now called the 2030 agenda by world governments, and it IS the new world order), so even if he isn’t correct in exactly how its going to go down, I believe that he is right in that it is going to happen one way or another.

He talks a bit about a staged alien invasion which I thought was a silly idea at first, but then I saw a few videos that prove the technology exists; there is also a lot of talk from world leaders about potential alien life. The former canadian defense minister came out and said the government is concealing the knowledge of alien life, the russian government has threatened to disclose it, and nasa has been vaguely hinting at the potential for alien life. The plot to stage an alien invasion is called Project Bluebeam, for those who want to google it. I don’t know if the government will really attempt something that crazy, however its an interesting idea.

yuriprinxe  asked:

Is there an actual history behind the war on Raven and Strade's planet, or did you just throw something together for Raven's backstory?

You know… if you took out the ‘actual’ and the second half of this question, it would sound a lot less accusatory and still get the same idea across…

Anyway, answer under the ‘keep reading’, because it’s long. [ and boring tbh, it’s fantasy history after all… ]

THIS IS WHAT HEARING THROUGH A COCHLEAR IMPLANT SOUNDS LIKE

A cochlear implant is an electronic device that can help people hear.

The phrase you are hearing is “what kind of bait do you use to catch salmon?” and you are hearing this through different channels. It’s channel 4, 8, 12, 20 and the last phrase is normal speech.

The channel number refers to the number of stimulation sites within the ear.

You can watch the original video here

Some channels sound like they are straight out of a horror movie right? But just to be safe, I’m not implying that cochlear implants are a bad piece of technology. It’s amazing that they provide some sort of hearing to those who otherwise could not hear at all, but as you can see there’s definitly some room for improvement!

You know what?

I hope there’s a movie with Évelyne Brochu playing a badass futuristic Québécoise biker or something like that because that would be amazing. Yes, we have her role in X Company, but she’s speaking English in that role and it’s set in the 1940s.

But just imagine her in a leather jacket with rivets on it, electronic implants in her hands and shit, riding a gleaming chrome motorbike, and speaking with a wonderful heavy Joual accent to boot.

Injectable brain implant spies on individual neurons

A simple injection is now all it takes to wire up a brain. A diverse team of physicists, neuroscientists and chemists has implanted mouse brains with a rolled-up, silky mesh studded with tiny electronic devices, and shown that it unfurls to spy on and stimulate individual neurons.

The implant has the potential to unravel the workings of the mammalian brain in unprecedented detail. “I think it’s great, a very creative new approach to the problem of recording from large number of neurons in the brain,” says Rafael Yuste, director of the Neuro­technology Center at Columbia University in New York, who was not involved in the work.

If eventually shown to be safe, the soft mesh might even be used in humans to treat conditions such as Parkinson’s disease, says Charles Lieber, a chemist at Harvard University on Cambridge, Massachusetts, who led the team. The work was published in Nature Nanotechnology on 8 June1.

Bionic roses implanted with electronic circuits 

Every rose has its thorn – but roses grown in a Swedish lab have transistors and electrodes too.

Researchers at Linköping University have created bionic roses by incorporating plant-compatible electronic materials into them. One of their modified roses has simple digital circuits running through its stem: another’s leaf changes colour when a voltage is applied.

The scientists want to make tools for biologists to record or regulate plant physiology — the plant equivalent of medical implants such as pacemakers. Electronic components might also be a way to engineer plants instead of manipulating their DNA, adds Magnus Berggren, a materials scientist at Linköping University who led the research, published in Science Advances.

Implants That Last A Lifetime?

Researchers in Switzerland say they have coupled advanced coating and bonding agents to build joint replacement implants that should last a person’s lifetime. 

The joint implant surface made at the Swiss Federal Laboratories for Materials Science and Technology (EMPA) is called diamond-like carbon (DLC), a superhard material that is extremely resistant to abrasive wear. Such coatings have been used on implants before, but previous attempts have seen the material bonded to the rest of the device with compounds that quickly corroded.

Military Plans To Test Brain Implants To Fight Mental Disorders

The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, or DARPA, is launching a $70 million program to help military personnel with psychiatric disorders using electronic devices implanted in the brain.

The goal of the five-year program is to develop new ways of treating problems including depression, anxiety and post-traumatic stress disorder, all of which are common among service members who fought in Iraq or Afghanistan.
