Samsung poised to unveil new phones in bid to revive sales

Samsung poised to unveil new phones in bid to revive sales Samsung is expected to show off its latest smartphones Wednesday as the entire industry struggles to come up with new features compelling enough to end a slump in sales. Samsung is also expected to provide a glimpse at a highly anticipated smartphone with a foldable screen. Apple touted the iPhone's 10th-anniversary edition as a breakthrough when it was released in late 2017. But the iPhone X didn't sell as well as analysts hoped, partly because it carried a $1,000 price tag. Smartphones made in recent years also haven't made dramatic improvements from earlier models.

The first human corneas have been 3 D - printed by scientists . It means the technique could be used in the future to ensure an unlimited supply of corneas. The dimensions of the printed tissue were originally taken from an actual cornea. By scanning a patient's eye, they could use the data to rapidly

Scientists in Israel unveiled a 3D print of a heart with human tissue and vessels on Monday, calling it a first and a "major medical breakthrough" that advances possibilities for transplants.

NASA concerned as iceberg twice the size of New York City is about to break off from Antarctica

NASA concerned as iceberg twice the size of New York City is about to break off from Antarctica Scientists warned Sunday that a massive iceberg will soon calve — or break off — from Antarctica's Brunt Ice Shelf and they're increasingly concerned about the "uncertain future" it creates for future research opportunities there. The iceberg is expected to be about twice the size of New York City, according to NASA scientists, who have observed cracks growing across the ice shelf in recent years. require(["medianetNativeAdOnArticle"], function (medianetNativeAdOnArticle) { medianetNativeAdOnArticle.

Scientists have found a way to use spinach to build working human heart muscle, potentially solving a long-standing problem in efforts to repair damaged Scientists have already created large-scale human tissue in a lab using methods like 3 D printing , but it’s been much harder to grow the small

Scientists are racing to make replacement human organs with 3 D printers . The challenges of printing a human heart . All blood vessels have proved difficult to create with bioprinting, but creating capillaries, which can be smaller in diameter than the smallest cell, has been nearly impossible.

The heart, about the size of a rabbit's, marked "the first time anyone anywhere has successfully engineered and printed an entire heart replete with cells, blood vessels, ventricles and chambers," said Tel Aviv University's Tal Dvir, who led the project.

"People have managed to 3D-print the structure of a heart in the past, but not with cells or with blood vessels," he said.

But the scientists said many challenges remain before fully working 3D printed hearts will be available for transplant into patients.

Journalists were shown a 3D print of a heart about the size of a cherry at Tel Aviv University on Monday as the researchers announced their findings, published in the journal Advanced Science.

Researchers must now teach the printed hearts "to behave" like real ones. Then they plan to transplant them into animal models, said Dvir.

"Maybe, in 10 years, there will be organ printers in the finest hospitals around the world, and these procedures will be conducted routinely," he said.

But he said hospitals would likely start with simpler organs than hearts.

Scientists discover new state of matter.
Scientists have discovered a new state of matter that allows atoms to exist as both solid and liquid at the same time. require(["medianetNativeAdOnArticle"], function (medianetNativeAdOnArticle) { medianetNativeAdOnArticle.getMedianetNativeAds(true); }); It was previously thought there were three states of matter: liquid, solid or gas. Experts were unsure whether the new state - known as a "chain-melted state" - was its own distinct state of matter or simply atoms transitioning between two stages - whether solid, liquid or gas.
