The device was defused by bomb disposal experts and is being transported to a quarry in nearby Ciriè, according to city officials.

Thanks to these Creeps, No One Can Sink Your Battleship EVER Again
Spiders and ants inspire metal that won’t sink – Phys.org
Excerpt:
University of Rochester researchers, inspired by diving bell spiders and rafts of fire ants, have created a metallic structure that is so water repellent, it refuses to sink—no matter how often it is forced into water or how much it is damaged or punctured.
Could this lead to an unsinkable ship? A wearable flotation device that will still float after being punctured? Electronic monitoring devices that can survive in long term in the ocean?

Women’s Land Shelled by the Turks
This Women-Only Village Was Built to Be a Feminist Utopia. Now It’s Under Threat. – ELLE.com
Excerpt:
In the Kurdish region of northeast Syria, a female-only ecological commune has sprung up as a place for women displaced by the Syrian revolution and the rise of the Islamic State. The cooperative is called Jinwar—Kurdish for “Women’s Land”—and it’s home to more than 30 women, many of whom were widowed in the fight against ISIS, and their children. In Jinwar, there is no central power figure; instead, there is a democratically-elected town council, and every month a different council member acts as the town’s leader.

3D-printed device weeds out blood cells to find cancer – Futurity
A new method using 3D-printed cell traps can separate cancer cells from billions of blood cells in a patient sample, researchers report……
“Isolating circulating tumor cells from whole blood samples has been a challenge because we are looking for a handful of cancer cells mixed with billions of normal red and white blood cells,” says A. Fatih Sarioglu, an assistant professor in the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Georgia Institute of Technology.
“With this device, we can process a clinically-relevant volume of blood by capturing nearly all of the white blood cells and then filtering out the red blood cells by size.

How the Aztecs could improve modern urban farming – Phys.org
The chinampa system, commonly called floating gardens, is still practiced in certain suburban areas in Xochimilco, in the southern valley of Mexico City. These raised fields are constructed by digging the canals and mounding the displaced earth onto platforms. Similar historic raised field systems can be found in South America, Asia, Oceania, and parts of Africa.
In a chinampa, the canal water rises through capillary action to the plant roots, which reduces irrigation demand. Additionally, a considerable portion of the soil fertility is generated in the canal floors.

Somalia Piracy Incident Inspires Blue Economy, Fishing Interest in Somaliland – Hellenic Shipping News Worldwide
In 2008, Danish ship owner Per Gullestrup’s crew was hijacked by Somali pirates and later released. Three years later, Gullestrup came up with an idea to help develop alternative livelihoods in the region. He launched Fair Fishing, a nonprofit organization, with the aim of creating jobs, driving economic growth, and improving nutrition and food security. It began in Somaliland as a model, with the support of a stable government.
Unlike Somalia, Somaliland has little history of fishing outside the small coastal city of Berbera.

Hearing aid uses 3D printed parts and costs less than a dollar – New Scientist
A 3D-printed hearing aid that costs less than a dollar could make hearing aids accessible for those who currently can’t afford them.
Saad Bhamla and Soham Sinha at Georgia Tech built the device using cheap off-the-shelf electronic components and a 3D-printed casing. It is based on the first designs of hearing aids developed in the early 50s, which were body-warn devices with earphones attached.
The pair built the hearing aid to work for people who have age-related hearing loss, which currently affects more than 200 million people worldwide.

White Supremacist Terrorism: A “National Security Crisis” or a Law Enforcement Challenge? Consider the Data – Small Wars Journal
Does the data justify transforming a law enforcement challenge into “national security crisis”? Greenblatt and Selim apparently think so. In their view since the “majority” of the 50 extremist-related deaths in 2018 their organization identified were “specifically perpetrated by white supremacists,” there is sufficient grounds for characterizing the situation as a “national security crisis.”
ADL’s analysis does attribute 78% of those 50 extremist murders in 2018 (amounting to 39 deaths) to white supremacists, but what Greenblatt and Selim don’t tell you is that as tragic as those 39 deaths were, they are among “16,214 reported cases of murder or non-negligent manslaughter in the United States” which occurred the same year.
