Skoltech researchers and their colleagues from Russia and Israel have come up with a new, simple and inexpensive method of testing liquid biological samples that can be further developed to work in clinical settings, including real-time testing during surgery. The paper was published in the journal Light: Science & Applications.


The most common method of real-time diagnostic testing for biological samples (such as urine or saliva) that is used in the healthcare system, optical label-free sensors, are highly sensitive, but that sensitivity comes at a cost in terms of time and resources. Looking for a more efficient alternative, the research team, coordinated by Prof. Dmitry Gorin from the Center for Photonics and Quantum Materials at the Skolkovo Institute of Science and Technology (Skoltech) and Dr. Roman Noskov from Tel Aviv University, turned to the data that these

This cheap (and fake) accessory can damage your Android smartphone

Over the past few weeks, I’ve noticed a growing number of “1024GB MicroSDXC” cards being offered by sellers on the likes of eBay or Amazon for ridiculously low prices.

But what’s the worst that can happen? You buy one, find you’re getting about 22GB of storage, and lose out a few bucks?

No, worse things can happen. Much worse.

Working in conjunction with my local trading standards office (a UK government service that works to protect consumers from unfair trading), I decided to take a look. So, I bought a couple of the fakiest looking microSD cards I could find on Amazon to take a look. They cost me about $15 each, but I got my money back, so the people selling them didn’t profit, and I also passed on my information to my local trading standards office.

Obama criticizes Americans for liking ‘cheap gas and big cars’ more than ‘the environment’

Former President Barack Obama, in his latest memoir, criticized Americans for liking “cheap gas and big cars” more than they care about “the environment” – even during a catastrophic event like the 2010 Deepwater Horizon oil spill.

The comments came during a section in Obama’s 700-page book, “A Promised Land,” released earlier this month.

On page 570, the former commander in chief recounts a press conference he gave more than a month into the oil spill – now considered one of the largest in history – saying his comments did not adequately express the frustration he truly felt.

“Reading the transcript now, a decade later, I’m struck by how calm and cogent I sound,” Obama writes in his book. “Maybe

Three Cheap Tech Stocks: Like, Really Cheap

Here’s a question: Can a tech stock be undervalued?

Of course, the answer is yes. Yet, based on all the money that continues to flow into a tiny coterie of high-momentum, over-hyped techy names, you’d think the only tech stocks worthy of investment are those trading at astronomical multiples. 

Alas, not all tech companies are named Amazon
AMZN
or Facebook, or Tesla
TSLA
or Apple
AAPL
. Some are named Veeco or Amkor … or IBM.

And therein lies an opportunity to both pursue respectable gains while adding a defensive buffer to a portfolio at a time when Wall Street seems to have forgotten that trees don’t grow to the sky.

Let’s start with Veeco Instruments Inc (VECO), a maker of semiconductor process equipment. A charitable description of Veeco’s operations is that it’s a mishmash of this, that,

The European Union has fined two pharmaceutical companies for colluding to keep a cheap alternative to a sleep disorder medicine off the market for their profit and at the expense of patients.

EU antitrust commissioner, Margrethe Vestager, said that Teva pharmaceuticals and Cephalon, a company it later acquired, must pay 60.5 million euros ($72 million) for agreeing between themselves to delay for years the launch of Teva’s cheaper version of Cephalon’s blockbuster Modafinil. In return for the delay, Teva got beneficial side deals and some payments.

Vestager said that “Teva’s and Cephalon’s pay-for-delay agreement harmed patients and national health systems, depriving them of more affordable medicines.”

Modafinil treats excessive daytime sleepiness and under the brand name Provigil it accounted for more than 40% of Cephalon’s turnover. A cheap alternative would have had a serious impact
