A magnetic twist to graphene

Electrons in materials have properties known as ‘spin’, which is responsible for various properties, the best known of which is magnetism. Permanent magnets, such as those used for refrigerator doors, have to align all spins in their electrons in the same direction. Scientists refer to this behavior as ferromagnetism, and research fields of trying to…

Scientists reveal synergistic effects in dual single-atom catalyst

Single-catalytic catalysts (SACs) are applied in heterogeneous catalysts. Instead of one type of single atom, dual single-atom catalysts (DSACs) provide better catalytic performance than SAC due to the association between dual metal-atoms. Understanding atomic-scale synergistic effects is important for the design of highly effective heterogeneous catalysts in chemical metamorphism. Recently, Prof. Huang Jiahui’s group and…

Researchers engineer a tiny antibody capable of neutralizing

Researchers engineer a tiny antibody capable of neutralizing

At 2pm last April, Michael Skoff triple-checked the numbers on his screen, took a deep breath, and fired an email that he had been waiting all day to send. “I think it’s working” was the cautious word of his message. Schoof, a graduate student in the laboratory of Peter Walter, PhD, a renowned scientist specializing…

The Big Oil’s Lies Are Finally Getting the Public Scrutiny

After the rebels overthrew the Capitol, Chevron made a tweet call for “peaceful change of the American government”. Brand tweets are always faked, especially when democracy stands at the tip of the knife. Doubt if you are a brand that, say, funded members of Congress who try to overthrow the government. The backlash for Chevron…

How to Wrong Turn Movies, Ranked and Roasted on a Spit

The wrong turn movies are not anyone’s favorite horror franchise. But somehow, the series about cannibalistic mutants who prey on directly challenged road trippers have been thriving for almost two decades. And since the seventh (yes, seventh!) Misstep this week, we’re taking a look at the entire Damage series. Most of the mis-twisted movies went…

Dodging Common WFH Hazards in the Contact Center

Analyze and define engagement patterns and processes for your extended WFH policies. Many companies found that the quality of support for their customers began to decline as the permanent WFH policy was introduced. This is because the techniques that agents often use are not designed or adapted for the WFH condition. Agents are most experienced…
