  • Window safety tips for families with children
    Sunday, April 11, 2021 4:00 AM
    (StatePoint) Windows let in light and fresh air and can provide breathtaking views, but it’s vital to observe window safety, especially when young children are in the home, say experts.

    “They say old habits are hard to break, and when it comes to my dad’s addictive smoking habits, I couldn’t agree more,” says Linh Nguyen, the Houston style, fitness and mom blogger behind A Beautiful RAWR. “He knows smoking is detrimental to his health, but the thought of not having it be part of his daily routine has been a challenging, intimidating, and in some ways, scary idea for him to grasp.”

  • All-in-one device uses microwave power for defense, medicine
    Sunday, April 11, 2021 4:00 AM
    An invention from Purdue University innovators may provide a new option to use directed energy for biomedical and defense applications.
    The Purdue invention uses composite based nonlinear transmission lines (NLTLs) for a complete high-power microwave system, eliminating the need for multiple auxiliary systems. The interest in NLTLs has increased in the past few decades because they offer an effective solid-state alternative to conventional vacuum-based, high-power microwave generators that require large and expensive external systems, such as cryogenic electromagnets and high-voltage nanosecond pulse generators.

    Saturday, April 10, 2021 4:00 AM
    If you walk with your spouse or partner on a regular basis, you might want to speed up. Or tell them to.
