When you live in bad conditions you learn to adapt. This is a rule that is common to all living beings and is therefore also applicable to some bacteria. There are certain species of bacteria that live in oxygen deprived areas and in such situations they have to find a way to breathe that does not involve oxygen. These bacteria are found in places deep within mines, at the bottom of lakes and sometimes even in our guts, all these places don’t have much oxygen and they need to adapt. How do they do this you say? These bacteria are able to breathe by taking in and pumping out electrons rather than oxygen. This means these bacteria are also electricity producing bacteria.
These electricity producing bacteria can be used to run fuel cells, purify sewage water besides a host of other uses. But getting this type of bacteria has been a problem.
Scientists are unable to produce these electricity producing bacteria in laboratories because of the extremely tiny size which is even smaller than a mammal’s cell.
Engineers at MIT have overcome this problem by engineering a way by which they can get small samples of bacteria. They have come up with a microfluidic technique that allows them to produce samples of electricity producing bacteria. This ability to generate electricity is known as polarizability, this microfluidic technique allows scientists to harness electricity from bacteria in a much safer and more efficient manner than what you have today.
This technique also gives the ability to distinguish from different types electricity producing bacteria. Scientists believe that there is a broad range of such kind of bacteria and that electricity producing capabilities are not restricted to a certain kind of bacteria.
Electricity producing bacteria generate electrons in their cells which then transfers it across their cell membranes via channels made of surface proteins. This process of transfer is known as extracellular electron transfer or EET for short.
Existing techniques for growing electricity producing bacteria involves growing a large batch of such bacteria and measuring the EET activity. This is a time consuming and meticulous process. Still other techniques exist that involve rupturing the cell to probe the protein activity within it.
Researchers used a microfluidic setup to compare various electricity producing bacteria each possessing a different type of electricity. Such strains include a strain of bacteria that actively produces electricity in microbial fuel cells, also known as “wild- type” bacteria.
Researchers wanted to see whether there is a relation between a bacteria’s electricity producing abilities and its behavior in a microfluidic device conducted under a dielectrophoretic force.
Scientists used the microfluidic device and passed the electricity producing bacteria through it by passing a voltage through the device. When the electricity producing bacteria reached the narrowest part of the device, another stronger voltage was passed through the other side of the device thus trapping the bacteria. Some bacteria got trapped at a higher voltage while others got trapped in a lower voltage setting. This suggests that each type of electricity bacteria reacts differently.
Wondering how to use Google lens on iPhone and iPad in a perfect way? But don’t know about the Google lens. Then don’t worry, i got you covered.
Google Lens has made its initial debut at Google’s I/O 2017 event, which lets you obtain text and hyperlinks from images, and it can also identify a number of landmarks around the world.
Earlier in 2018, Google has released Google Lens feature to all non-Pixel Android devices and later it has started rolling the update to the iOS devices as well.
For people who are confused with what actually Google Lens does, here is the straight and simple answer.
“Google Lens is a comprehensive photo recognition tool built into Google Photos that can provide additional information about the pictures you are taking.”
Let’s get into few examples for clear understanding.
Example 1: For instance, taking a picture of Burj Kalifa will show the reviews, contact information and any additional information that found useful to the user.
Example 2: Taking a picture of an invitation will automatically be added to your calendar and marked it as an important date.
I hope with these examples you can get a clear view on the Google lens. Now, lets have a look at how to use Google lens on iPhone and iPad in a perfect way.
If you are not using the Google Application on your iPhone/iPad yet, go to the App Store and download the latest version of Google app and launch it.
Make sure to Sign-in with your existing Google account or create a new account to effectively use this application.
Once you are done with signing in, locate the search bar and tap on the Lens icon on the right corner.

The scientists from MIT have discovered a novel way of creating 3-D nanoscale objects. They shrink objects to the nanoscale by making a larger structure with a laser and then shrinking it. It produces 3-D structures that are one thousandth the size of the original.
They are able to shrink objects to the nanoscale of almost any shape. The objects can be patterned with useful materials, including metals, quantum dots and DNA.
According to Edward Boyden, the Y. Eva Tan Professor in Neurotechnology and an associate professor of biological engineering and of brain and cognitive sciences at MIT, you can put any kind of material into a 3-D pattern with nanoscale precision.
This is a technique called Implosion Fabricaton, whereby the researchers pattern a polymer with a laser and create any shape and structure. Useful materials are then added to the polymer and later on it is shrunk to give a structure that is one thousandth the size of the original.
Earlier, there were ways of shrink objects to the nanoscale, but they have generally been very slow and ineffective. Layer upon layer needed to be added upon the 2-D nanostructures or just have pyramid like structures. There is a method to directly print 3-D nanoscale objects, but that is only with materials like polymers and plastics, which is not suitable for many applications. But that is not enough for complex structures like linked chains or hollow structures. To shrink objects to the nanoscale and for nanofabrication to reach its potential, it should also be able to work with complicated shapes.
Boyden and his students used a technique known as expansion microscopy. This was used for high-resolution imaging of brain tissue. The brain tissue was embedded into a hydrogel and then expanding it in order to allow high resolution imaging of the brain tissue with a regular microscope.
When the process was reversed, then the scientists were able to create large objects embedded in expanded hydrogels and then shrink objects to the nanoscale. This was known as implosion fabrication.
They used a very absorbent material made of polyacrylate, found in diapers for the nanofabrication process. The polyacrylate was soaked in a solution containing fluorescein molecules, an orange dye with yellow-green fluorescence used as a scientific marker. They act as anchors that can bind to other types of molecules.
You can attach light to any part of the anchors and also anything else like a quantum dot, DNA or a gold nanoparticle. With the fluorescein in place, an acid is added to prevent negative charges in the polyacrylate gel. They no longer repel each other thereby causing the gel to contract. There is ten times shrinkage in each dimension which equals a thousand fold reduction in volume. In this way they could shrink objects to the nanoscale.
Though there have been attempts to invent better equipment to make nanomaterials, Samuel Rodriques, a lead author and grad student says that just using the existing systems and embedding it in this gel, you can shrink objects to the nanoscale.
When you shrink objects to the nanoscale, then there is great potential for widespread applications. Specialized lenses that are shrunk can be used to study fundamental properties of light. They could be used for cellphone cameras and microscopes. The process to shrink objects to the nanoscale could be useful in the future for creating nanorobots.
To help doctors in detecting more than 50 eye diseases, DeepMind will be developing a product to detect sight-threatening conditions from a common eye scan. Deep Mind is an artificial intelligence company based in London and owned by Alphabet.
According to a study that has been published in Nature Medicine, the DeepMind trained artificial intelligence software will be able to detect the eye diseases better than the doctors. The eye scans that use artificial intelligence could be very useful in detecting eye diseases and prevent loss of sight. The technology could detect sight-threatening eye diseases quickly which will ensure that patients do not need to wait in case of urgent treatment.
DeepMind in partnership with London’s Moorfields Eye Hospital and the University College London Institute of Ophthalmology plan to conduct trials based on this technology in 2019.
If they achieve success then DeepMind would go in for a regulator approved product which Moorfields could market in the UK. This would be the first software of Deep Mind AI algorithm that makes use of machine learning in a healthcare product. If they get the approval, then the clinicians at Moorfields would use it free of cost across 30 UK hospitals and clinics for a period of five years.
DeepMind will use its trained artificial intelligence program on 15,000 patients and will use optical coherence tomography (OCT) to detect any signs of eye disease. OCT is an imaging technique that gives 3D images of the rear of the eye by using light waves.
Although OCT scans are used to detect eye diseases, it is difficult for the clinicians to interpret and can be done so only by experts.
On the other hand, the technology adopted by DeepMind will be able to detect eye diseases directly from the OCT scan in a matter of seconds. The patients in urgent need of care can be treated immediately as there is no wastage of time between the scan taken and the treatment to be administered.
The DeepMind AI technology combines two neural networks such as segmentation and classification. In the first analysis, the OCT scan shows the entire eye tissue as well as the features of the disease. The second step analyses the eye tissue image and enables the clinicians with the diagnosis and a recommendation.
The DeepMind trained AI technology will need to undergo trials. If they get regulatory approval, then the technology could be used for different types of eye scanners and not only for the purpose that it was trained at Moorfields.
DeepMind is confident that the trained AI technology could be a ground-breaking path in the diagnosis and treatment of eye diseases.
DeepMind was bought by Google in 2014 and since then they have been expanding into gaming and healthcare. In 2015, they partnered with Royal Free teaching Hospital in London and worked on an app called Streams which alerts the clinicians to acute kidney injury.
DeepMind used machine learning to radiotherapy planning for head and neck cancer in 2016. Deep Mind also used its machine learning to improve the detection of breast cancer.
Do you feel like your time and energy are exhausted by doing keyword research? Google trends can improve your strategy.
Well, the formula for keyword research success is not complicated, but all it requires is smartness and exploring tools to find best keywords. Along with that, you have to make use of some platforms to make some profitable keyword lists.
Now, if you are in the digital marketing field means you’ll undoubtedly come across google trends for your keyword research. But, if you are a starter to this field means you’ll never utilize the full potential of this excellent tool.
So, today I am going to discuss about the google trends platform.
In this post, I’ll cover all the best possible ways to use google trends for keyword research.
if you don’t know about google trends means, don’t worry I’ll explain to you.
Google trends is a free online search tool which allows you to see how often keywords, phrases, and subjects have been searched in Google over a specific period.
You can quickly analyze any keyword search graph over a period of time. This tool is regularly updated, and you can quickly find a lot of best and new keywords from the google trends.
Now after knowing about this tool, most of you might think about how to use this tool right?
When you first come across this tool, you can see what searches are currently trending along with the latest stories and insights with maps. When you scroll down, you can even see what was trending on google by year.
Now, when you enter a keyword, you will get the metrics of that keyword.
In that, most of the people think that the trend curve is the direct and proper representation of search volume over time similar to the Google, keyword planner.
Here the trends graphs will work differently. When you search for a keyword in google trends, it will show you the interest over time graph whereas coming to google keyword planner you’ll get Average monthly search volume.
So, these both results are entirely different.
“ Google trends always adjust the search data to make comparisons between keywords easier. Here every data point is divided by the total searches of geography and time range to compare relative popularity merely”.
“To simply it, the relative popularity is the ratio of a keyword search volume to the sum of all possible queries search volumes”.
After the metrics, the result then gets scaled on a range of 0 to 100 just based on the topic ratio to all the searches.
This google trends tool eliminate repeated search queries from the same id over a short period of time to give accurate results.
Note: Google Trends only shows data for popular and trending terms. Other low volume keywords will be shown as 0.
Ex: Have a look at the google trends graph for the search term “ twitter” over past 12 months
Now, to clearly explain to you how Google trends give its “Interest over time” graph. Let’s assume that i have google date. ( No can have one but let’s pretend)
Let me take the assumption values to explain to you.
Assume: Total monthly search number of google searches is around 10-11 billion.
Assume: Now, Search volume of the query “twitter” in us is 80 million.
|May 2018||June 2018||July 2018|
|Avg total Monthly searches in the USA||10,000,000,000||10,000,000||11,000,000,000|
|Avg twitter monthly search volume in the USA||90,000,000||85,000,000||75,000,000|
Now, these are the example results just to show you how it works. Most of these values are inappropriate and assumed Value.
Until now, I have shared the working mechanism of the google trends. Now, let’s check out the proper ways which are useful in finding out the best keywords.
In this post, I am going to share seven best ideas to use google trends for keyword research. Along with that, I will show how you can refine your searches as well.
If you want to get massive traffic to your website means you have to follow this step. Here in this step, you’ll discover all the seasonal trends, and you’ll create excellent content around that keyword and start promoting to get massive traffic.
Have a glance at the screenshot; you can have a look at the trends of “Raincoats.” These are mostly purchased in the rainy season so you can see an upward graph in rainy seasons. Medium traffic in another season, so google trends is helpful in discovering seasonal trends.
Here is another example, in this report I used a keyword 2018 FIFA world cup. You can see a massive graph when the FIFA world cup is running. After that, you can see the decrease graph.
So, by using this way you can explore the best trending and popular keywords. If you are running a sports website, then make use of the ongoing popular tournaments. But, if you are selling Raincoats as a seasonal business, then you can make use of the google trends to find the time where people are laboriously searching for best raincoats.
When you are trying to create excellent content for your next blog post or your website. Always make sure you checked the topic on Google trends before you start writing it.
By checking the topic, you can get the trends of that keyword. So, it will be useful for you to save your time by not creating content for falling topics.
Usually, when you consider writing about some keyword, you will have multiple options. Choose the best one which is moving upwards or having some decent traffic don’t go with old trends.
Previously there is massive popularity for “spinners,” and it has also touched 100 in google trends interest over time. But since that, it has fallen massively and not even getting minimum traffic.
So, it is always best to shift your focus on upcoming trends rather than going for download trends.
Are you striving to get traffic?
Then why don’t you explore google trends to get untapped keywords for your site? By using google trends “ trending searches” option, you can quickly find lots of search queries which have a significant upward graph in popularity over the past 24 hours.
So, target those keywords to get massive shares and traffic to your site.
Most of you might be wondering why you should be choosing that option right?
Well, let’s assume that you run a sports blog.
You have gone through trending searches on FIFA World Cup.
For Suppose at the time you see FIFA world cup it has already reached the finals stage, you might think that you are too late?
But that’s not too late.
People also search for that term for some days, and you might even get an upward spike after a couple of days as well. After a few days or months, you will again see a downward spike, but that doesn’t matter to you because you have already achieved lots of traffic for that keyword in that small time.
So, it is always best to capitalize on the trending topics. Here you have to remember one thing don’t go for that keyword after a couple weeks or months because you will not get any traffic.
Now, Are you having a long-term blog or website?
Then you can make use of google trends data to get a good amount of traffic.
Whenever you see the google trends for the term “ Oscars”. You can see increased graph at the time of Oscar awards every year.
It is because the Oscars program will take place in March every year. So, you can make use of that google trends data if you have a long term.
Google trends usually let its users reveal untapped queries people also search for in trends when they search for your term.
So, you can make use of them and include them in your keyword listings. Most of the popular brands always do this to improve their chances of buying products.
when people are searching for “Shoes” they also tend to search for “curling shoes” and red bottoms shoes.”
Not only that they also provide some other search related topics and queries which are useful for website owners to know what the searcher is searching for.
Now, by using those keywords, you can simply do your keyword research on tools you generally use. So, by doing keyword research, you will explore even more new keyword ideas for your sie.
Watching is always best when it comes to SEO.
Now, carefully watch google trends “interest by subregion” to get the list of “ Country, Cites, subregions” you search term is most popular in and take advantage of that.
You can explore lots of examples for these here I am taking “flooring.”
When I am searching for flooring, I can see Montana has 100%. So, I measured a place where there is the need for my products and services. Now, I have to focus on SEO aspects to reach people and sell my product or services.
Most of the people these days target youtube, and I think I don’t have to say that because almost all of you know about the popularity of youtube.
If you want to get more views on your videos?
Then redefine your video strategy by analyzing what people are searching on youtube with the help of google trends.
You can do a specific search for youtube queries by hitting scroll down option on web search and select youtube search.
Here I searched for “Fortran,”I can see both upward and downward graphs, but presently it has no searches. So, as a YouTuber, you have to smart and skip this result.
Now, this is it.
These are the best and practical techniques which you can use to find the best and untapped keywords.
Now, I want to turn it over to you:

From past few months, there is a lot of buzz hovering over the social media’s about the Android 9 Pie and the latest features of Android 9 pie. But no one knows when exactly the next big version of Android OS will be rolling out.
Now, it’s official, Google has just released their final version of its Android P. Although this version is previewed at the Google’s annual developer conference which is conducted back in the may it has released in August.
This new version is available on all the google pixel phones. And you can get this update soon on the other devices which have signed the companies beta programme.
Now, you might be wondering about “what are the biggest features of android 9 pie”?
If you want to know about them means don’t worry, here in this post I’ll cover all the biggest features of Android 9 pie.
In this post, I have covered the ten biggest features of Android pie which have caught our attention. So, let’s get into the most significant features of Android 9 Pie.
Google’s new android pie update has rolled out with the fantastic navigational gestures. They just took a piece out of the iPhone X’s and refined that piece and added to their new version of Android P. In Android P you can see refined navigational gestures which are created based on the users intent which they found out in Android P beta testing earlier this year.
The brand new home button is changed into the slim dash which looks fantastic on the device. Here to browse all you have to do is slide up from the thin dash that’s it. When you long press the digital button means google assistant will pop up to help you.
You can also see your most recent apps appear with the full-screen previews which you can flick through. Usually, you will have lots of space on the home screen, and it makes your phone look longer and easier to access. You can even access this phone quickly with a single hand.
As said, google new android p has interactive recent apps features. This new interactive app feature gives you more control over your recent apps. All you have to do is horizontally swipe your screen to get the full-screen previews of your recent apps. This new version has the multitasking booster which helps to do multiple tasks at a time.
This mode supports quick text selection, which means you can quickly copy the text from one app to the other app.
Google has included a new “digital wellbeing dashboard” on its latest version of Android Pie. It gives you the unobstructed view of how you used your android phone. You can see every statistics and time spend on your apps.
This dashboard will help you to realize how much time you are spending on your phone and you can even cut down your phone usage to some extent by using this app. You can also check how many times you unlocked your device and home many notifications you received throughout the day and so on.
So, this is a helpful feature to manage your time as a well to organize your time. Presently it is working on pixel devices only it will roll out to the other devices this fall.
App timer is another excellent tool which helps you to cut down your time on apps. You can tap into the apps you are, and you can set the time limit for those apps in your daily usage.
Usually, people love playing games, and some people enjoy watching youtube? If you are the one who wants to cut down your playing time and videos time, then you can use this efficient app timer which can notify and stop the app.
You can set your own time such as 15 mins, half an hour, one hour, or three hours, etc. the choice is yours once you set the timer. It will work until that time after the time limit reachable the app will fade out from your home screen, and you can relaunch the app.
This is one of the useful features to control kids from playing excessive games on mobile. That’s why I mentioned this point in the biggest highlights of Android 9 Pie.
Usually, when I say this a new update, you’ll say “do not disturb” is an old feature. Right?
Yes, do not disturb is on the most phones but there is a difference between that feature and this feature. In old “do not disturb” feature it prevents you from hearing notifications. Although this is a useful option in meetings and conferences but it isn’t ideal when you are at your home or your bedtime.
The new upgraded version of do not disturb takes out all the visual indicators so that you can’t get alerts such as messages, snaps, emails and so on. Google is also adding a new feature which can turn your phone on its face to merely activating “do not disturb” mode automatically so there will be no interruptions.
Google has brought more changes to the past version of Android just by analyzing past experiences. It has taken machine learning experiences to get proactive suggestions quickly. This new tool predicts the next step you want to do with the app and do take that action.
The actions are purely based on the Android pie program which previously learned about your particular pattern like how you answered your calls and so on.
The new adaptive battery feature is one of the best features you have to talk about the Android Pie. Usually, not all apps require equal time and don’t have to use your battery life. Android pie exactly does that it will not allow all apps to eat your battery life. It will smartly monitor your battery, and it saves your battery life.
This new version of the Android pie has a unique feature which decides whether to give power to the apps or not. So, this feature can reduce CPU app wake-ups by 30% and this can help you to improve your phones battery life.
If you are struggling with app notifications? Then don’t worry the Google’s Android pie will take care of those notifications. If there is an app which continuously shows notifications means Android pie will dismiss those notifications. This app is smart enough to notice which is the perfect notification for you.
After a while, you will be asked to choose the notifications options. Long press on notifications means it will directly take to the notifications settings and you can do your desired changes there.
The slices in the Android pie is another useful feature. Usually, slices will quickly let you access all the shortcuts in the google search. If you are searching for any ride, then you can quickly click on uber slices to open and book instantly.
With this android p, you can quickly give Gmail like intelligent replies to your incoming messages. These are nothing but the automated responses which shows up as a reply to your mail or your chat. It is generated by using a machine learning algorithm. These special message has come to the new android pie to save your time and effort of typing.
These are the special and biggest features of the Android 9 Pie.
Now I want to turn it over to you:
Which of these features do you like most?
Which of the features you love are missing in this post?
