The symptoms of the infection starts showing up in a person almost after 12 to 48 hours after the person has been exposed to the virus.
To get over recent E. coli outbreak completely, Chipotle Mexican Grill has decided to tweak its cooking methods, recipes and ingredient preparation. The restaurant chain has also hinted that many changes could be implemented in New Year.
Scientists have discovered a second transmissible cancer in Tasmanian devils. The discovery has raised questions over current understand of the processes that make cancers to be transmissible. Since 1996, a transmissible cancer that spreads by biting has destroyed the population of the Tasmanian devils.
Transmissible cancers are the ones that can spread between individuals by the transfer of living cancer cells. Tasmanian devils are quite rare marsupial carnivores as they are just found in the wild on the Australian island state of Tasmania.
The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) has planned to launch a manned mission to Mars in 2030, but there are no plans into how astronauts will set up camps in earth’s neighbor planet. It’s not NASA, but congress which took next big step towards sending humans to deep space: to create a deep space habitat.
Nadine- latest humanoid receptionist at Nanyang Technological University (NTU Singapore) could be considered as the rise of advanced social robots. She is truly a humanoid, as whether it is remembering your names, your previous conversations, greeting you with smile, shaking hand with you, she can do all.
New Year is going to be special for one more reason as potentially there would be some natural fireworks in the upper atmosphere just in the time for 2016. What else one could wish for that sky is joining us in the New Year’s celebrations.
On Monday, December 28, a sunspot cluster erupted that lead to an M-class flare directly at earth. The extreme-ultraviolet radiation initiated an ionization event causing a radio blackout over South America, Africa and the South Atlantic Ocean.
When it comes to love, money becomes a secondary factor. The same has turned out to be true for a British couple, who has spent more than $137,000 to clone their dead dog to have two pups. Both the pups, Chance and Shadow, were born on December 26 and 28 in Seoul, South Korea with the help of Sooam Biotech Research Foundation.
Chance and Shadow have been named on characters of movie Disney’s Homeward Bound. Chance was born on Boxing Day through caesarean section but Shadow was born naturally on Monday after the dog went into early labor pain.

Disney researchers have done remarkable job by engineering a small, four-wheeled robot with the uncanny ability to climb up walls. The robot, VertiGo, has been created in collaboration with researchers from the Disney Research Zurich and the university ETH Zurich. The interesting feature of the robot is that it can climb up and continue moving at a surprisingly brisk pace. Another important feature of the newly developed robot is that it can travel through urban and indoor environments and can move quickly on the walls.
RIP to the (Legged Squad Support Systems) LS3 robot, more popularly known by its earliest nickname, BigDog. Despite of the hopes that the massive robotic mule developed by Alphabet-owned Boston Dynamics will one day work as a pack mule for US soldiers in the field, it is getting retired because of its noisy behavior. The robot was initially designed to carry cargo for weary soldiers to the field. In 2008, Boston dynamics first made the quadruped robot which was later on updated in 2010 under a $32 million contract from the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (Darpa).
