Cincinnati Based Gym Is First in The Nation to Use New Medical Grade Technology to Kill Viruses and Bacteria

CINCINNATI, Oct. 13, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — A new gym based out of Cincinnati, OH is boosting client confidence for a return to the gym by utilizing a new medical grade UVGI technology that meets the CDC standard for killing viruses.  Tyler and Michelle Menke are a husband/wife duo that had a dream of opening a fitness business.  After years of research and analysis of other fitness franchises, last December they decided to take the leap and began making plans for the development of a gym concept that would incorporate their love of strength training and yoga. 

Then COVID hit…

After lots of sleepless nights, the Menke’s came to a decision to keep pursuing their dream.  Tyler, who quit his high paying medical device job to dedicate time to the gym, began making calls to old vendor contacts and found a left over UVGI system from the pop-up hospitals.  He

Based on optical matter, new machines could be used to move and manipulate tiny particles — ScienceDaily

Researchers have developed a tiny new machine that converts laser light into work. These optically powered machines self-assemble and could be used for nanoscale manipulation of tiny cargo for applications such as nanofluidics and particle sorting.

“Our work addresses a long-standing goal in the nanoscience community to create self-assembling nanoscale machines that can perform work in conventional environments such as room temperature liquids,” said research team leader Norbert F. Scherer from the University of Chicago.

Scherer and colleagues describe the new nanomachines in Optica, The Optical Society’s (OSA) journal for high-impact research. The machines are based on a type of matter known as optical matter in which metal nanoparticles are held together by light rather than the chemical bonds that hold together the atoms that make up typical matter.

“Both the energy for assembling the machine and the power to make it work come from light,” said Scherer. “Once

Science, tech institutes to now be rated based on support to female staff


Science and Technology institutes will be rated based on the support they give to female staff under the new Science Technology and Innovation Policy (STIP), 2020, that aims to make the arena more inclusive and diverse.


Besides stressing on support to female staff, the focus of ranking parameters will also be language and geographical locations.



“There will be a separate chapter on equity, inclusion and diversity in the new science policy,” Department of Science and Technology (DST) Secretary Ashutosh Sharma said.


Deliberations are underway to have a new STIP 2020 which is expected to be unveiled by December, he said. Both government and private institutions will be graded.


“We are setting up a framework based on which evaluation will be done. There will different parameters like how many women are recruited every year, what is total number

A computer predicts your thoughts, creating images based on them — ScienceDaily

Researchers at the University of Helsinki have developed a technique in which a computer models visual perception by monitoring human brain signals. In a way, it is as if the computer tries to imagine what a human is thinking about. As a result of this imagining, the computer is able to produce entirely new information, such as fictional images that were never before seen.

The technique is based on a novel brain-computer interface. Previously, similar brain-computer interfaces have been able to perform one-way communication from brain to computer, such as spell individual letters or move a cursor.

As far as is known, the new study is the first where both the computer’s presentation of the information and brain signals were modelled simultaneously using artificial intelligence methods. Images that matched the visual characteristics that participants were focusing on were generated through interaction between human brain responses and a generative neural network.
