Ученые изобрели экономичную систему фильтрации воздуха внутри помещений

Команда исследователей из инженерного факультета Национального университета Сингапура (NUS) недавно представила экономичное решение для контроля загрязнения воздуха внутри помещений, даже сильно запыленных или же задымленных. Новая система проста в использовании и, благодаря конкурентоспособной стоимости, идеально подходит для использования в социальных учреждениях, таких как больницы, дома престарелых, общежития, а еще в жилых домах, офисах, гостиницах и […]

In Bucuresti, ciclismul ar putea salva 130 de vieti si crea 2.200 de locuri de munca

132 de vieti ar fi salvate anual si peste 2.200 de locuri de munca ar putea fi create daca in Bucuresti s-ar efectua la fel de multe calatorii pe bicicleta ca in Copenhaga, potrivit unui raport comun al Comisiei Economice a ONU pentru Europa (UNECE) siOrganizatiei Mondiale a Sanatatii (OMS) Europa. In acest moment, doar 1% din calatorii se realizeaza pe bicicleta si exista doar 88 de locuri […]

Ocean acidity is dissolving shells of tiny snails off U.S. West Coast

Ocean acidity is dissolving shells of tiny snails off U.S. West Coast

Biologists have found the first evidence that acidity of continental shelf waters off the U.S. West Coast is dissolving the shells of tiny free-swimming marine snails, called pteropods, which provide food for pink salmon, mackerel and herring, according to a new article. First evidence of marine snails from the natural environment along the U.S. West […]
