Australia turns to 3D printing to maintain its submarine fleet

australia turns to 3d printing to maintain its submarine fleet

BEGIN ARTICLE PREVIEW:

3D printing is set to go to sea in the form of an additive manufacturing technique for repairing submarines. Being developed by Australia’s dedicated submarine sustainment organization, ASC, in partnership with the CSIRO and DMTC Limited, the cold spray printing technology is intended to repair the Royal Australian Navy’s (RAN’s) Collins Class submarines in situ.If you look at the size of any country’s navy, the numbers can be quite deceptive. What looks like a large fleet on paper may be much smaller because only a fraction of the fleet may be active at any one time. For submarines, only one in four may be actually on duty, with the other three being in transit, under repairs, or used in training.To keep the RAN up to strength, ASC is looking to 3D printing as part of a two-year project designed to speed up repairs and maintenance. In particular, the company is developing a cold spray technique that fires a spray of supersonic gas that accelerates metal powder particles to form a dense deposit on a surface.

The cold spray technique uses ultrasonic gas to accelerate metal particlesASC

According to ASC, this method doesn’t need the high temperatures required …

A Mask of Wellness sticker in the window of Coralville restaurant 30 Hop. — Mask of Wellness website
A winking yellow smiley face, complete with mask, grins from the front window of Iowa City downtown anchor store Active Endeavors. Inside, customers find a skeleton crew of masked employees who, after completing a daily health-related self-certification, spend the day waiting on customers, meticulously wiping down frequently touched surfaces, steaming clothing from the dressing rooms and directing customers to any of six sanitizing stations throughout the store.
Like many downtown businesses, Active Endeavors is working to be “COVID-conscious,” while staying afloat in the face of the pandemic — everyone puts on masks, but keeps smiling.
The cheerful face in the window is the logo of Mask of Wellness, brainchild of Mercy Hospital Iowa City ER doctor David Krupp and local pharmacist Robbie Schwenker. A grassroots program emphasizing simple safety practices, Mask of Wellness is making an effort to preserve the local economy while still keeping consumers and workers safe.

The idea originated when Krupp reached out to Schwenker at NuCara Pharmacy about a COVID-related project. That resulted in a discussion about how they, as health care providers, might save more lives working on prevention at …

A SPEE3D 3D metal printer.

When COVID-19 hit, SPEE3D founders Byron Kennedy and Steve Camilleri tried to work out how they could prevent the spread of the virus, and decided to investigate if antimicrobial copper could be the key.
According to Kennedy, copper has been known to kill viruses and bacteria for centuries, so they decided to research if it would kill this specific coronavirus.
They went to 360Biolabs, a clinical trial speciality laboratory accredited by the Australian National Association of Testing Authorities, and tested its effect on the virus. It showed that the antimicrobial copper killed 96% of the virus within 2 hours, and 99.2% of the virus within five hours.
As a result, the Melbourne and Darwin-based metal 3D printing manufacturer developed ACTIVAT3D copper, which uses SPEE3D printers to coat metal parts – including door handles and railings – with copper.
Using digital print files, copper fixtures have since been installed in Charles Darwin University in Darwin, Swinburne University in Melbourne and at the University of Delaware.

MANILA, Philippines — Former Philippine team coach Tim Cone was among the latest to express his disgust toward racism particularly in the United States after the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis.

The 46-year-old Floyd, an unarmed black man, died last week after a policeman knelt on his neck for almost nine minutes while he was handcuffed.
The incident, the latest depiction of police brutality against people of color in the US, sparked Black Lives Matter protests in many cities in the country. Riots have also erupted in various cities as protesters clashed with the police.FEATURED STORIES
For the American mentor, it all boils down to leadership.
“All coaches/leaders develop a culture—good or bad, sometimes great, all of which reflect a team’s success,” Cone, the most celebrated coach in the history of the Philippine Basketball Association with 22 championships, tweeted Tuesday.
“The leadership of the U.S. has developed such a horrendous, despicable culture that it has led the country to hate, division and racism. I’ve never been more ashamed. #BLM (Black Lives Matter).”
On Monday, Gabe Norwood spearheaded a protest by Filipino-American PBA players on their social media platforms by taking a knee and holding …

Its parent organization is known for synthetic human and animal models used for anatomy education, surgical simulation and medical device testing.

Is Google Signaling It Might Dump AMP in the Future?

is google signaling it might dump amp in the future?

BEGIN ARTICLE PREVIEW:

AMP, which stands for “advanced mobile pages,” is a technology created by Google in 2015 as a way to make web pages load faster.
The technology, however, has been controversial in web development circles. It requires extra work for developers, critics say, while also increasing Google’s control over the web.
In the last two years, there have been various changes in AMP. In 2018, Google went to an open governance model for the technology. In May, Google announced that for news having specifically to do with coronavirus, it was waiving the requirement that stories in its “Top Stories” carousel needing to be AMP stories.
Now, as part of its announcement in a May 28 blog post that it was rolling out Google algorithm changes to take effect in 2021, Google announced more AMP changes. The company will remove the AMP requirement from Top Stories eligibility altogether-not only for coronavirus stories.
“AMP will no longer be necessary for stories to be featured in Top Stories on mobile; it will be open to any page,” the post continued. “Site owners who currently publish pages as AMP, or with an AMP version, will see no change in behavior — the AMP version will be what’s linked from …

While President Donald Trump alternates between reportedly hiding in a bunker and threatening to deploy troops on protesters, athletes everywhere are filling the leadership void. Though sports are not currently part of our lives, their voices have been some of the strongest during a time of crisis.
This is not a surprising phenomenon, since athletes have always led on racial and social justice issues. Jackie Robinson played in Major League Baseball two decades before the end of Jim Crow; Muhammad Ali was sentenced to prison for refusing to fight in the Vietnam War; Colin Kaepernick sacrificed his professional football career to protest police brutality during the national anthem. But the importance of our sports stars has never been more apparent than now, when the nation is craving for leadership, only to receive outrageous tweets from the president that violate Twitter’s terms of violence.
The closest Trump has actually gotten to the tens of thousands of demonstrators …

ASSOCIATED PRESS

Jaylen Brown drove 15 hours to Atlanta, Georgia this past weekend to lead a peaceful protest alongside Indiana Pacers guard Malcolm Brogdon. The Celtics wing grew up about 20 minutes outside the city in Marietta, Georgia.
“I drove 15 hours to get to Georgia — my community,” Brown said on his Instagram livestream Saturday. “This is a peaceful protest. Being a celebrity, being an NBA player, don’t exclude me from no conversations at all. First and foremost, I’m a black man and I’m a member of this community. I grew up on this soil. … We’re raising awareness for some of the injustices that we’ve been seeing. It’s not OK.”
Celtics head coach Brad Stevens spoke to the media Tuesday and praised Brown’s efforts and leadership. The 23-year-old’s actions didn’t surprise him.
“Jaylen’s greatest impact, as good as he is at basketball, won’t be in basketball,” Stevens said. “He’s a special guy, a special leader. He’s smart, but he has courage. He’s got a lot of great stuff …
