Test developed by University of Minnesota research could help hemp farmers keep crops legal

On top of all the other risks Minnesota farmers face from planting to harvest, those growing industrial hemp deal with an unusual one: If the crops produce too much THC, the psychoactive substance present in all cannabis plants, then it’s not hemp under state and federal laws, but marijuana.

It can be very difficult for growers to know exactly how much THC their hemp seeds are going to produce, so farmers can plant seeds thinking they are growing a legal and environmentally friendly crop, only to find out they’ve actually invested time and money in growing a drug.

All of it, then, must be destroyed.

To combat that uncertainty and risk, researchers at the University of Minnesota recently developed a genetic test that will take out some of the guesswork.

The research, published last month in the American Journal of Botany, compared the genes of different varieties of

Shanghai Normal University Establishes Digital Humanities Research Center to Promote Chinese DH Research and Education – Press Release

On November 23, 2020, the International Summit Forum on Digital Humanities and the Opening Ceremony of Digital Humanities Research Center of Shanghai Normal University (SHNUDH) was held in Xuhui campus of Shanghai Normal University. Dozens of experts and scholars from Harvard, UCL, Academia Sinica, PKU and other well-known universities, research and cultural institutions were invited to attend the meeting.


After a brief and warm opening ceremony, the scholars conducted in-depth exchanges on giving full play to the advantages of Humanities in the digital age, responding to the major concerns of the times and society, and enabling the humanities and social sciences to combine the latest progress in the frontier fields of digital technology, methods and artificial intelligence, and realizing the deep integration and collaborative innovation of science and technology and humanities and social sciences. Scholars also discussed on their research theories and methods, history and current situation, development direction of

Eaton partners with University of Zagreb for EU-funded Edge DCIM research

The “IDEAS project will enable data centers to benefit significantly from the value add of DCIM (Data Center Infrastructure Management) solutions at a fraction of the cost and complexity of today,” the European Commission project notice states.

The interface of IDEAS “will provide an innovative and competitive answer at a time when the number of data centers is dramatically increasing in Europe due to colocation, ‘cloudification’ of enterprise IT, but also new trends such as IoT, 5G that will result in the surge of very small and scattered data centers (also known as Edge IT).”

The data center monitoring software comes out of the EU project MANGO, which focuses on optimizing energy use at large data centers.

Eaton is also involved with “Exploring Manycore Architectures for Next-GeneratiOn HPC systems,” along with Zagreb and several other universities.

The company contributed a software platform that monitors energy consumption, component temperature, and computing

A research team from RUDN University developed an algorithm to help large groups of people make optimal decisions in a short time. They confirmed the efficiency of their model using the example of the market at which the outbreak of COVID-19 began. The model helped the administration and sellers agree on closing the market and reach a consensus about the sums of compensations in just three steps. An article about the algorithm was published in the Information Sciences journal.

Decision theory is a field of mathematics that studies the patterns of decision making and strategy selection. In the terms of mathematics, decision making is an optimization task with multiple criteria. Expert opinions, judgments, and

Racist history of research could hinder COVID-19 vaccines, but an Alabama university wants to help

Tuskegee University, which is linked to one of the most notorious medical experiments in U.S. history, wants to build trust between researchers and Black volunteers necessary for trials of COVID-19 vaccines.

Efforts to recruit Black volunteers for COVID-19 vaccine trials have stumbled this fall, despite high rates of hospitalizations and death in the African American community. Experts from Tuskegee University hope to change that by encouraging drug companies and researchers to adopt practices to protect vulnerable study participants.

Recently, four experts from Tuskegee and Harvard Universities wrote an article in the New England Journal of Medicine urging researchers to convince Black volunteers they can be trusted.

Black people account for 21 percent of the deaths from coronavirus but only 3 percent of vaccine volunteers. David Hodge, associate director of education at Tuskegee University’s National Center for Bioethics in Health Care and Research, said the lack of minority participation undermines trial

The properties of quantum states of light are already leveraged by such highly sophisticated leading-edge technologies as those of the latest sensitivity upgrades to LIGO, the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory, deployed to detect gravitational waves since September 2015, or the encryption keys used for satellite on-board security.

Both solutions use crystals as noise-free optical amplifiers. However, the use of atomic vapors has been considered a more efficient alternative that enhances the accessibility of non-classical light states.

“We show that oscillators based on these atomic amplifiers can generate intense beams of light with quantum correlations,” said Marcelo Martinelli, a researcher in the University of São Paulo’s Physics Institute (IF-USP). Martinelli is a co-author of an article published in Physical Review Letters
