We know very well about brain scanning machinery concept based on MRI model, but we are seeking to develop a miniature adapted version design that does not only provide brain electron
intra circuitry pathways or networks,but can auto- generate specific desired data parameters relevant to medical and health needs..We are flashed our call for design partners in a posting over this same medium.

Research from the +EAPS MIT found that certain greenhouse gases can cause sea levels to rise for hundreds of years after the pollutants have been cleared from the atmosphere.

#pollution #environment #climatechange #science #MIT
Through warming effects, methane and other gases impact rising seas long after leaving the atmosphere.
