Universidad de Cádiz posted this:A very innovative accessory element to distribute and redirect the air flow for split air conditioningBrisAire should be placed on the air exit located on the outside of the air conditioning, held to the casing using the two adhesive strips, which allow easy assembly and disassembly. The central piece, made of light material, makes it ideal for absorbing the mass of air, acting as a loading buffer. The openings in the central body of BrisAire are arranged in rows across the surface. Its particular provision aims to create an effect of irregular distribution of air flow in the room, preventing its impact directly and uniformly on the people in the room. Once placed on the air conditioning, the element standing by on the off position, it reassembles a paper bag, attached to the air conditioning by its wider sides, and the other two sides being unfastened. When the air conditioning is turned on, BrisAire will inflate releasing some air through the openings in its body and the rest via the unfastened side to the casing of the air conditioning. The openings and the two free sides, prevent the return of air to the equipment, which could cause defects in the efficiency of the apparatus. To prevent the air from the air conditioning impacting directly on the people in the room, BrisAire has larger openings on the top side which points upwards, while the smaller openings are found beneath.

In addition, over the last few years, many new discoveries come up about selenium potentialities in the animal and human diet, such as its power anticarcinogen. Considering the important nutritional rule of this component and the need of a production models more and more environmentally-friendly, the present invention describes a production process of selenium enriched yeasts based on agro-industrial residues, such as sugarcane bagasse and rice bran, which serve as carbon and nitrogen sources. Purposes: This innovative biotechnological production process uses agro-industrial residues as substrate, resulting in a biomass of yeast that contains high selenium levels. Animals, as know, obtain selenium mainly through the aliments; then, this biomass can be used as a component in the animal nutrition to improve its development, fertility, eggs quality, milk and meat. Furthermore, it can act as component in the prevention of many diseases, for example, cancer. Target Market: Agro industrial, Veterinary and Pharmaceutical Industries.

UNIVERSIDAD DE ALICANTE posted this:Aerial obstacle detection software for the visually impairedThe main innovations of this technology are that this software can be executed in any smartphone equipped with a 3D camera, which is used to detect the distance to the obstacles, and it provides an accessible interface that alerts the user by means of beeps or vibration when it finds an obstacle. The alert becomes more and more frequent as the obstacle is closer. The system is comfortable and discreet making easier the user social integration. It is worth to highlight that this technology is new for this kind of devices. Until now, smartphones were not able to extract real measures from the environment. This application extracts about 30000 measures per frame, with a frame rate of 9 fps. The interface allows configuring different features: operation mode, alert type, volume, speech velocity, language, etc.

Thus, this new approach may benefit not only stroke patients who can be treated with current treatment to induce recanalization (transient stroke) but also the 80% of patients who could not benefit from current therapies directed to induce recanalization of the artery (permanent strokes). Results in the preclinical area and some results obtained in serum of stroke patients lead us to think that apotransferrin is a good neuroprotector in the early stages of the ischemic event.
Sandra Moczulska posted this:Application and method of producing cyclic compounds in olefin metathesis reactionThe olefin metathesis reaction has many advantages, the most important of which is the fact that it shortens the synthesis path by reducing the number of required steps and this lowers the cost of obtaining the target product. Unfortunately, the industrial application of the olefin metathesis reaction (especially in the production of macrocyclic rings in the RCM reaction) is currently experiencing difficulties such as: - lack of selectivity and product competition (a major problem with RCMs leading to large macrocyclic rings to minimize the problem of high dilution, but it clearly increases the cost of the process) - displacement of reaction equilibrium (RCM reaction is an equilibrium process, so to move the process towards the formation of products it is necessary to react under reduced pressure) - migration of double bond C = C (migration within the substrates as well as target product due to side reactions. This inconvenience can be eliminated by using, for example, quinones - unfortunately, this elimination is only partial.) - the need to use a homogeneous ruthenium catalyst (a large amount of catalyst is required to reach the reaction, reaching over 20 mol%). The present invention relates to a process for the production of cyclic compounds in the olefin metathesis reaction and the use of ruthenium catalysts for the production of cyclic olefins in olefin metathesis reactions. The solution through optimization, overcomes the current problems. The expected product is obtained with high efficiency and selectivity. The method can find extensive use in organic synthesis, requiring metathetic ring closure (RCM), among others in the fragrance industry. Advantages of the presented solution from UW: 1. high process efficiency 2. high selectivity 3. low cost of synthesis

Assessing ecological risk from pollutants requires preliminary research into the emission and transport of contaminating substances in the environment and the exposure to which live organisms may be subjected. Likewise, laboratory and/or field experiments help evaluate the toxic effects caused by different pollutants and exposure patterns. Finally, the results of these studies are combined to calculate the likelihood of ecosystems being affected by the use of potentially toxic substances.
