Comments NASA Mars rover Curiosity spots peculiar pebbles NASA: ‘Cannonball’ spotted on Mars isn’t what it seems 2 Enlarge ImageThe Curiosity rover drilled into this clay-bearing unit on Mars. NASA/JPL-Caltech The Curiosity rover is living its best life on Mars. NASA chose the Gale Crater as the vehicle’s stomping ground in part because of the siren call of the crater’s “clay-bearing unit.” The rover has now finally drilled into that area, nearly seven years after landing on the red planet.”Don’t let your dreams be dreams,” the rover team tweeted. “I finally got beneath the surface of those clays. Science to come.” “Certain minerals, including some Curiosity may find in the clay and sulfate-rich layers near the bottom of Gale’s mountain, are good at latching onto organic compounds and protecting them from oxidation,” NASA said at the time. Curiosity now finally has its chance for a closer look. This is a time of great excitement for scientists and Mars fans alike. Curiosity has weathered technical glitches and damaged wheels to get here. This new chapter, carved into clay, is just beginning. “This is a moment that the mission has been waiting for since Gale Crater was chosen as our landing site,” wrote Curiosity team member Scott Guzewich in a mission update. The bedrock target is nicknamed “Aberlady.” Curiosity will investigate the drill hole and composition of the rock powder as it seeks to learn more about this region of Mars. When NASA announced in 2011 that Gale Crater would be Curiosity’s home away from home, the space agency highlighted the likely history of water in the region and how it plays into the search for signs of organic compounds.

Photo credit: CASIT (PhysOrg.com) — A vest being developed by scientists at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) could help people with balance disorders to regain their balance. This could cut short the rehabilitation or balance retraining exercise period, reduce the risk of falling, and improve patients’ quality of life. Balance disorders can make you feel dizzy or unsteady, or feel as if you are spinning, falling, or moving when you are not. They can be caused by brain injuries, infections, some medications, or problems with the vestibular system in the inner ear, and can cause a wide range of symptoms including falls, staggering, lightheadedness, blurred vision and disorientation.Developed by researchers at UCLA’s Center for Advanced Surgical and Interventional Technology (CASIT), the vest is portable and self-contained, and measures the rotation and tilting of the patient’s body during walking. Wobbling is detected by a series of accelerometers across the shoulders, and if any is found silicone balloons attached to the vest are inflated to give the wearer a physical indication of the imbalance. Pairs of balloons are located above the rib cage, between the shoulder blades, and above the trapezius muscles on the left and right mid-shoulders.The tactile vest system includes an electronic control system providing virtually instantaneous feedback, and patented pneumatic actuators and an air tank. Similar vests have been developed in the past for flight simulators or games, but not for rehabilitation for balance disorders.One of the project leaders, Martin Culjat, said the balloon actuator has a special membrane that enables the pneumatic balloon to be inflated at a high enough pressure that the vest wearer will feel it pushing against the skin. One of the advantages of pneumatic actuators is that they have a faster reaction time (60 ms) than other types of actuators, enabling real-time feedback for the patients. Other types of actuators also have a disadvantage because they can send vibrotactile signals to the body, to which the person can become less sensitive over time.The group’s findings were presented at the 2010 Haptics Symposium last month in Waltham, Massachussetts. Haptic technologies are those that use tactile sensations and controls to interact with computer applications, and they are commonly used for applications such as training for tasks needing hand/eye coordination, or for games in which you see and feel your interactions with images. © 2010 PhysOrg.com Citation: Vest to prevent balance disorder patients falling (2010, April 6) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2010-04-vest-disorder-patients-falling.html Explore further Tactile Gaming Vests: The Fourth Dimension In Gaming Reaches New Level Of Pain This document is subject to copyright.

Confidence is the key to making successful and creative leaders which may directly translate into good performance by their subordinates, says a study that examined productive teams at modern workplaces.“When leaders feel confident that they can produce creative outcomes, their subordinates become more creative. It’s that simple,” said study author Dina Krasikova from University of Texas at San Antonio. Usually, creative leaders have the proper experience to fuel their ideas. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’As a result, they’re more confident. Also, leaders become more confident in their creativity when it is recognised by the senior management. But what surprised Krasikova is that a leader’s creativity and confidence is contagious.“A factor in this is the power of positive thinking,” said Krasikova, an expert in leadership, in a paper published in the journal Organisational Behaviour and Human Decision Processes. “Leaders can imbue their subordinates with confidence and creativity just by setting an example themselves,” she added. Also Read – Leslie doing new comedy special with NetflixThe study also found that ineffective or abusive leaders create stressful situations for their employees by humiliating them in front of others, playing favourites or not giving their subordinates proper credit for their work.“When you feel stressed, you feel helpless and your productivity and creativity is diminished,” the researcher said. “Many times this originates with the leader. For example, you might come to work unsure of what you’re supposed to be doing because you get conflicting expectations from your direct supervisor or your boss. The solution is clear roles and communication,” she added.Interpersonal relationships between leaders and subordinates, too, play an important role in the team’s performance. “When a confident, creative leader also has good relationship with subordinates, it has even a stronger impact on subordinates’ creativity,” Krasikova said.
All hail the queen of drama, Suchitra Krishnamoorthi, as she arrives in the Capital for the first time to take us on a roller-coaster ride that is her life. ‘Drama Queen’ – an honest biographical play – based on her book of the same name – will make you laugh, cry and look at the modern Indian woman in a whole new light with all her vulnerabilities and strengths.After a decade long hiatus, Suchitra says that as her daughter is all grown-up now, she has decided to get more active. “Being a single mother is extremely demanding on your time as you don’t have the liberty of just taking off to somewhere. So, I made a choice of staying at home and look over my newborn daughter. And now that she can take care of herself, I decided to get back to being more active,” said the actor with an impressive filmography. Also Read – Add new books to your shelfDirected by Inaayat Ali Sami and presented by AGP world, the play on October 6 at the India Habitat Centre, will show her in a never seen before avatar for the first time, as we witness the drama queen, looking for the perfect life partner. “It is almost impossible to enact the whole book, so, for the play, I chose the part where I go around proposing marriage to my friends, how my family reacts to it and the events that unfold due to those incidents.” Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsiveSuchitra shares, “In the book, you won’t know where the fact ends and fiction starts; my life is much vast than that. The play and the book are all about how things unfold in my life – in a highly dramatised manner. I did take some vulnerable moments of my life for the performance and tried to play the character with a lot of humour and fun.” In her candid, wacky, madcap biography, Suchitra takes us on a hormone-driven period of her life five years post-divorce with actor-director Shekhar Kapur; fame and everything that a good girl from a ‘decent’ Indian family would want. But who is a ‘good girl’ from a ‘decent’ family? “In my book, I was talking about the kind of society that we live in; a society with a typical middle-class environment. A girl has to adhere by so many do’s and don’ts; you are not supposed to talk or dress in a certain way; don’t date men, and be confined to what the family wants from you. I think that pressure is too much and in my own way, I was trying to break out of that and say, that I am as much of a good girl even if I don’t adhere to it. Parental and family pressure, society rules, and log kya kahenge is something we are all trapped in to a certain extent and I never understood the hypocrisy or brushing things under the carpet. I have never understood why people in India don’t talk about sex or going to a shrink. These things should be very normal,” said the unabashed actor, writer and singer. Suchitra has never shied away from calling a spade a spade even if it dismays the society and that’s what one can expect from her play. “I think society is very afraid of women’s sexuality, and their freedom. And that’s something which comes from patriarchy. It is a patriarchy that has trickled down even to women in the way they are conditioned. I frankly don’t take much heed towards what people say about me, how they judge me or how they see me. I think everyone should concentrate all their energy on their own life and try to make their own life better.”Suchitra has seen the industry up-close and said a big no to a favour in exchange for sex. She says that if an adult woman has consensual sex with a man 10 times then she cannot cry rape, as we see this happening nowadays. “I think it is a pure exploitation of the law and a lot of women are misusing the law. There is something very convoluted and opportunistic about that. Yes, women should be protected but women can also use the law wrongly and I think that’s happening in many instances. Women should also have the guts to have sex for the sake of sex or advancement, and not play helpless victims when things go wrong.” A single mother, stuck in the quagmire of her strict middle-class moral upbringing, Suchitra hurtles, chugs and somersaults on a rollercoaster journey in a desperate bid to find security and true love. This play will teach you ‘the freedom to be’ or as Suchitra says, “It is perfectly okay to be vulnerable, to make mistakes, to express yourself and it’s okay to be yourself.”
