Corn, Entomology, Monsanto, and Me

Corn, Entomology, Monsanto, and Me

AcademyScience visits the Agricultural Sciences at the UNL University of Nebraska at Lincoln East Campus to learn more about Monsanto and its plans and offerings in the agricultural chemical arena along with its GMO Genetically Modified plants designed to survive its agricultural chemical applications.

AcademyScience is also interested in the UNL Entomology Department and its views on what the Monsanto and Bayer based agricultural chemical offerings in the nicotinamide insecticide, glyphosate herbicide and fungal arenas are doing to the pollinators that we already know we need to survive as a species.

If you are interested in hearing what we observed and learned about the interesting things, please contact us!

Let Us become and remain mindful of safety and security in developing autonomous programming “thinking” reactive sensor solutions! – Academy Science Leader Michael

“But when we deploy multirobot systems in real applications, we expose them to all the issues that current computer systems are exposed to,” she adds. “If you take over a computer system, you can make it release private data — and you can do a lot of other bad things. A cybersecurity attack on a robot has all the perils of attacks on computer systems, plus the robot could be controlled to take potentially damaging action in the physical world . So in some sense there is even more urgency that we think about this problem.”

Lego Boost Demo

Lego Boost Demo

Lego Boost is going to turn all your Lego toys into programmable robots!

This is a must demo list item for the imaginative Lego minded brainiac (uh, where do I find one of those?)! – can’t wait to try one out!

AcademyScience explores all things science in the community and has FUN!

Lego Boost is the idea that Lego was overdue to debut. It’s a set of motors and programmable bricks that can work with existing Lego kits and turn them into motorized or motion-sensitive toys. And the app can record voice effects … so, yes, you can make your robot Lego-cat speak.

Stress Relieving Dog

Sharing Your Life With a Dog Can Reduce Stress
Pets Help to Reduce Anxiety and Aid with Recovery
Humans have incredibly tough schedules, with long work hours, not enough sleep, and the growing responsibilities of every day life. There are estimates that one in every four among us has some form of mental disorder – primarily stress, and depression.

Stress Relieving Dogs

Stress Relieving Dogs

 

Not many take it as a sign of mental disorder, but prolonged stress and depression can have catastrophic effects on our well-being, and our mental abilities to stay focused and give proper attention to daily tasks. Some suggest one of the best remedies may be to get a pet dog or cat.

Research shows that pets, especially cats and dogs, are an excellent mood enhancer. There are numerous ways to reduce stress but pets have great advantages over many others.

Air Ambulance Service Dog

Service dog rides in Ohio air ambulance with ex-soldier

TOLEDO, Ohio. Louis Belluomini exited from a parked ambulance at ProMedica Flower Hospital in Sylvania as he held a leash and said “side.” Less than a second later, Star, his service dog, went into a sitting position next to him and lay down.

“I don’t like the idea of being on medication for the rest of my life,” said Belluomini, who is a ProMedica Air and Mobile medic. “This was an opportunity to get off of those medications.”

Air Ambulance Service Dog

 

The 32-year-old was diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder PTSD in 2009 after his time stationed with U.S. Army in Iraq and Afghanistan. Completely unaware, it wasn’t until he returned home when his friends and family noticed he was having issues, including not wanting to be at home alone and other “weird little things.”

It was when he and his wife moved in together that he decided to take action.

Therapy Dogs Motivation

Can Therapy Dogs Assist in Motivating Children on the Autism Spectrum?

Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is one of the most widely and deeply researched topics in child development as researchers constantly look for answers into not only its cause but the best way to treat the problematic symptoms of the disorder once diagnosed.
Effects of the various types of ASD include deficits in social communication and interaction, repetitive or restricted behavior, sensory issues and cognitive delays. These traits prevent children on the spectrum from performing or completing tasks in the same timeliness or fashion as other children.

Therapy Dog Motivation

Therapy Dog Motivation

Often, in order to get children with ASD to complete tasks, a reward-based system is implemented, where the child is given a toy or some other form of reward. But the offer of a reward doesn’t always guarantee completion of the task.

One Texas Tech University researcher is part of a team taking a unique look at this system by providing access to therapy dogs as the reward, allowing students who complete certain academic tasks to spend time with the pooch, with the hope that potential interaction further motivates them to complete those tasks.
