Daniel Dempsey was a grad student stationed in the jungles of Monteverde, Costa Rica when he first encountered the danger of a snakebite. The biologist was walking through the forest one day, catching bats to study them for malaria, when he almost stepped on the black, arrow-shaped head of an enormous pit viper—a fer-de-lance. That night as he described his encounter to the local family he was staying with, they began to tear up. They told him that earlier that year a “terciopelo,” what Costa Ricans call their country’s deadliest snake, had bitten the family’s five year-old niece. The hospital, a few hours drive away, didn’t have any antivenom in their stocks. She didn’t make it. It was Dempsey’s memory of …

/ Go to Source Article Samsung has revealed four new virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) projects that have been brewing in its in-house Creative Lab (C-Lab). For the uninitiated, Samsung launched C-Lab back in 2012 as a canvas for workers to develop ideas away from their core day-to-day duties. It was only at CES last year that Samsung showcased the first fruits of the program, and has since followed up with a number of new C-Lab “graduates” including a 360-degree wearable camcorder. Now, Samsung has given a glimpse of some new C-Lab VR / AR smarts that it intends to demo at Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona next week.

/ Go to Source Article As far as algae goes, Pseudo-nitzschia is an outright menace. It produces a neurotoxin, domoic acid, that works its way up the food chain, building up in shellfish like crabs and clams. And when humans eat those shellfish, the neurotoxin leads to a disorder known as amnesic shellfish poisoning—featuring symptoms like seizures, memory loss, and even death. This is a particular problem for the west coast, which in 2015 took a $100 million hit when a domoic acid outbreak forced officials to shutter crab fisheries. A nasty surprise, but perhaps an increasingly predictable one. Because a study out today in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences uses two decades of data to make …

By GREGORY ZELLER // Summer slowdown? Not at the Clean Energy Business Incubator Program, where a full slate of new clients and educational networking programs is giving a traditionally sagging season some sizzle.
