Study reveals all the microfibers lost in the wash

Alarming? The plastic fibers in your clothes are piling up in nature

A new study by Patagonia (clothing company) looks at how microfibers in fleeces and other synthetic clothes are contaminating bodies of water, littering shorelines, and infiltrating food systems. The study found that up to 40% of these fibers end up passing through wastewater treatment facilities and into rivers, lakes, and oceans where they often end up as fish food. From here they bioaccumulate their way up the food chain, further concentrating toxins in the bodies of larger animals and ultimately ending up in the animal at the top of the food chain: humans. They’ve even been found in sea salt and table salt.

Treasury backs electric cars but makes limited moves on diesel
UK Story

Important notes:
What the mayor says: The mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, said: “The measures announced to clean up our polluted air are totally inadequate – and no action to introduce a desperately needed diesel scrappage fund.”

What the image is about: A sign indicating a car charging point. There are 115,000 electric cars in the UK with 13,000 charging points spread across 4,500 locations. Photograph: Alamy Stock Photo*

It is clear that the human race faces a global environmental problem. However, new technologies evolve in response to population growth, economic pressure and demand for increased safety, better health, more nutritious food, economic welfare, security, and a sound environment.

Comparing natural and engineered nanomaterials is like comparing a pebble to a marble

From Nano to Nature

Predicting the fate of nanomaterials in the environment is no small task. Once the nanomaterial is released from manufacturer conditions, it can undergo dramatic changes.
Nanotechnology will surely improve the quality of our lives, but we need continued research in sustainable approaches to ensure that it lives up to the challenge of also improving the environment.

Formula 1 is my favorite technical and technological sport, besides Cricket and Football.

I see DRAMATIC inaugural Singapore F1 race back in 2008, which Alonso wins and Nico Rosberg finishes 2nd in Williams F1. Singapore F1 GP is a lovely watching experience of technology and human combination in very tough environment conditions. If you are a fan or not, I suggest to watch next weekend's Singapore night race.

If you are following Formula1, you must be well aware of how Formula1 evolved. It's environment friendly rules & regulations including fuel savings, best safety practices, crash tests etc.

Happy Reading and if you have any question's regarding Formula1, please ask.

Something strange is happening to one of the coldest places on Earth. Dazzling blue lakes Supraglacial lakes are blooming like summer wildflowers and it got scientists worried because they have seen the same thing before.

The prospect of more or larger lakes is worrisome because Antarctica ice (if melted) is enough to raise global sea levels.

Lighter note: If this happen, some of us may see the earth drowning in real time 3D. Well for most of us, I don't guarantee it.

Rise of the digital worker and the future of work?

The advent of the digital economy, robots, artificial intelligence (AI), and process automation is already starting to drive a significant loss of jobs in certain sectors, and the trend will only intensify over the coming years.

However, rise of the robots is not the end of work but rather an evolution of the workforce
