Last week’s Tesla Cybertruck introduction is still dominating discourse, and in classic Tesla fashion, it’s doing

Last week’s Tesla Cybertruck introduction is still dominating discourse, and in classic Tesla fashion, it’s doing so in a truly annoying way. Following a sketchy tug-of-war with a downslope-pointed, rear-drive F-150 intended to show the cockroach-shaped Cybertruck’s brawn, Ford has demanded a do-over on a (literal) level playing field. While “polarized” doesn’t begin to describe the reaction to Cybertruck, one comment about the retro-futuristic EV caught my eye. It was a reason why someone might not consider the vehicle, and it has nothing to do with power, price, or build quality. The auto writer in question, despite loving the avant-garde wedge design, voiced concerns on social media about the vehicle being potentially unsafe for pedestrians (valid), too large (also valid, but perhaps less so in this segment), and “maybe deeply anti-social.” That last criticism took me aback. Anti-social? Is this something people think about when spending tens of thousands of dollars on a vehicle for themselves — that the vehicle might make unpleasant waves in society? Scrolling through the dictionary, one discovers that anti-social means “contrary to the laws and customs of society” and/or ...

Biomanufacturing of organ-specific tissues with high cellular density and embedded vascular channels

Engineering organ-specific tissues for therapeutic applications is a grand challenge, requiring the fabrication and maintenance of densely cellular constructs composed of ~108 cells/ml. Organ building blocks (OBBs) composed of patient-specific–induced pluripotent stem cell–derived organoids offer a pathway to achieving tissues with the requisite cellular density, microarchitecture, and function. However, to date, scant attention has been devoted to their assembly into 3D tissue constructs. Here, we report a biomanufacturing method for assembling hundreds of thousands of these OBBs into living matrices with high cellular density into which perfusable vascular channels are introduced via embedded three-dimensional bioprinting. The OBB matrices exhibit the desired self-healing, viscoplastic behavior required for sacrificial writing into functional tissue (SWIFT). As an exemplar, we created a perfusable cardiac tissue that fuses and beats synchronously over a 7-day period. Our SWIFT biomanufacturing method enables the rapid assembly of perfusable patient- and organ-specific tissues at therapeutic scales. The ability to construct whole organs for therapeutic use remains a daunting ch...

Afghan Agriculture Exporters Featured at Gulfood 2020

Twenty-six exporters of Afghanistan’s finest fruits, nuts, juices, saffron, and spices are showcasing their products for international buyers at the world’s largest annual food and hospitality trade show—Gulfood Expo Dubai—from February 16 to 20, said a USAID press release. “Expanding sales of Afghan products in these important export markets means better incomes for farm families, dignified jobs for Afghan women and men, and increased revenue for the government,” said USAID/Afghanistan Mission Director Peter Natiello. He added, “The US government, through USAID, remains committed to support Afghans in their quest for peace and prosperity.” Women-owned businesses are among the Afgan vendors at the trade show, which will hopefully link up Afghan businesspeople with an international business hub. “Thanks to USAID who linked us with importers from the UAE, South Asia, and Eastern Europe during Gulfood 2019, we signed contracts worth almost $4 million. Trade is one of several ways in which our country can prosper. USAID is helping us stand on our feet and harness those opportunities,” said Aman Gul, Vice President of Afghan Moman Ltd. Gulfood Expo covers a million square feet of exh...

Millie Bobby Brown, Margot Robbie, and this year’s glamorous red carpet season have spoken: hair ribbons are back. Not unlike Princess Charlotte’s adorable collection of bows, celebrities have been stepping out in elegant hairstyles complete with a feminine, delicate ribbon. While the velvet and satin ribbons are typically tied into a bow, there’s really no limit to how creative one can get with the accessory. Here, we’ve rounded up our favorite ribbon looks of all time, dating all the way back to 1958. For the 2019 Oscars, Graham styled her hair with multiple mini custom velvet bows from Jennifer Behr all over her bun.

Fast Fashion’s Environmental Impact by Cintra Wilson

You can enter multiple addresses separated by commas to send the article to a group; to send to recipients individually, enter just one address at a time. If one is to judge fashion by glossy magazines, there are really only three major questions of importance: (1) leopard print or not, (2) sexy being “back” or not, and (3) what to wear if you aren’t wearing all black. High fashion, for most people, is a passing blur of bewildering, ever-shifting, sometimes ridiculous seasonal image statements. Whether you are an avid follower of trends or believe yourself to be unconscious of style, or even fashion-contrary, unless you are a militant nudist, you are clothed every time you leave the house and are subject to snap judgments about your overall person by anyone who sees you. The items you have selected to cover your naked form communicate more about you than you may realize. High fashion is a manifestation of the immediate zeitgeist: call it a mood ring, or a way to read the tea leaves of larger culture. What came to be the most interesting discovery of my tenure as a fashion critic at The New York Times was how much subliminal voodoo is crammed into the semiotics of advertisements ...

Samsung, UN Development Programme Partner to Support the Global Goals

Samsung Electronics and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) today announced a new partnership in support of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), also known as the Global Goals. The Global Goals address some of the biggest challenges faced around the world, including those related to inequality, climate and environmental degradation, and education.

Is the 2018 Ford F-150 Turbo-Diesel Cost-Effective?

My first encounter with a 2018 Ford F-150 with the new turbo-diesel 3.0-liter V-6 and 10-speed automatic transmission came at the Midwest Automotive Media Association Spring Rally in May. My second encounter with the same truck — a 4×4 SuperCrew in Platinum trim — came more recently, providing a longer period to drive it. I headed out of Chicago for a trip to Michigan during which I could put to good use the F-150′s 250 horsepower and impressive 440 pounds-feet of torque while also testing its fuel economy. For this mileage test, I cruised normally, keeping up with traffic on interstates and rural highways while also driving in city traffic at both ends of the 546.8-mile trip. Ford provides a nice 10-speed gear indicator in the information cluster; it’s interesting to watch multigear transmissions to see if and when they get into top gear. This one wastes little time getting up there. At 70 mph it was rolling around 1,700 rpm. With a light foot on a flat road, you can carry 10th gear down to about 1,100 rpm, or about 47 mph. Hit an easy incline and the transmission effortlessly drops down to 7th. According to the trip computer, my fuel economy for combined city/...

How Innovative Design Made Enoteca Nostrana One of the Coolest Places to Drink in Portland

In a city passionate about good food, drinks, and design, why does Nostrana’s little wine bar stand out so starkly? Despite opening a little over a year ago, Buckman wine bar Enoteca Nostrana is one of the least Portland-feeling bars in Portland. Contemporary and funky, the bar sports massive Champagne-cage cork stools, which somehow mesh with rich design touches that would feel equally at home in a 19th-century Milanese hotel. The walls and floor boast bold patterns reminiscent of the Saved By the Bell intro. There is a gently ’90s mix of colors, and unexpected textures pop beneath counters and above sumptuous leather booths. Then, a few steps in, there’s the hidden heart of the bar: a glowing, two-story wine fridge, futuristic and formidable with its stacks of backlit acrylic fixtures and row after row of bottles. Between the booths and glowing cellar, the place feels like a pizzeria on a 1980s album cover. There’s not a white wall in sight; those looking for the customary devil’s ivy or succulent in a tucked-away corner will find nothing of the sort. The winner of 2018’s Design of the Year award, Enoteca stands out because it pulls most of its inspiration from a design tradit...
