Piranhas, Vinho e um Motor esférico

Um Barco que promete re-definir a Guerra naval , e esperemos, a luta contra os Piratas, que ainda há muitos, e sem serem os do Capitão Sparrow:

Unmanned nanomaterial Piranha threatens to redefine naval warfare

By James Holloway

You've heard of UAVs, unmanned remote controlled military aircraft; but what about USVs? Standing for Unmanned Surface Vehicle, a USV is quite simply an unmanned boat, like Zyvex Marine's Piranha concept. We've looked at USVs before, and the Piranha specifically in early 2010; but what was then a prototype under development is now a fully-fledged production craft, having shipped its first unit last November. "Our production facility is closer to rocket science than traditional boat building," says Zyvex Marine VP Byron Nutley of his boat - the only one in the world, it's claimed, that is made out of nanomaterials.

Sabiam que o Vinho Tinto tem um Composto que combate a Obesidade?

Compound found in red wine could help fight obesity

By Bridget Borgobello

Researchers from Purdue University in Indiana are testing a compound found in red wine that has the ability to block the processes of fat cell development. The research into the compound known as piceatannol may lead towards finding a simple method to combat obesity.
Piceatannol results from the conversion of resveratrol – a compound found in red wine, grapes and peanuts that is also thought to combat cancer, heart disease and neurodegenerative diseases. When resveratrol is converted into the piceatannol compound, which naturally occurs after consumption, the compound has the ability to delay fat cell growth.
