  • Synthetic Pesticides

    kinds of light which isn’t visible to the human eye, but are of importance. They are infrared and ultraviolet. Visible light is the type of light that has a wavelength of 390-700 nm, and can be see by humans. Infrared rays have a wavelength of 700nm to 1mm and are mostly present as the thermal emission of objects at room temperature level. Ultraviolet rays are rays with a wavelength of 100nm to 400 nm. The UV rays are extremely dangerous to humans, before the ozone layer used to filter out the UV radiations but since the decline of the ozone layer, humans exposed to more of the radiation which can cause skin cancer. The modern success of organic and biodynamic farming has helped remind us what we can do without synthetic pesticides, but insects still cause major problems worldwide especially mosquitoes. And now a boom in lighting technology is beginning to hint at unexpected alternatives to chemical pesticides: lasers and light-emitting diodes, or LEDs. Japanese researchers from Tohoku University have touched upon the topic of certain wavelengths of visible light being harmful to certain species of insects. For example, blue light with a wavelength of 467 nm, was lethal to the fruit fly pupae while ultraviolet A light of wavelength 378 nm was comparatively less harmful. They also went on further to find that pupae of the London Underground mosquito were killed by violet, which is of wavelength 417 nm. On the other hand pupae of the confused four beetle…

  • Synthetic Biology In The Future

    As you have heard, synthetic biology is an emerging technology that has made great advancements in a short amount of time. Though the public’s capacity to imagine misuse scenarios as a result of new developments in synthetic biology are vast, in reality institutional and structural capacities remain limited. Taking these limitations into account, synthetic biology still has an incredible amount of potential. This potential has implications for how America addresses its security concerns in the…

  • Synthetic Phonic Approach

    instructions and identifying the reading ability of children. In Rose Report (2007: 19), synthetic phonics is praised as ‘the best route to becoming skilled readers’. Driven by its emphasis on phonics, it points out five essential skills for reading: ‘recognition of letters, the ability to sound out phonemes, the ability to hear and blend phonemes, the reading of phonically regular words, and the reading of some irregular words’ (Rose, 2007: 22). Therefore, Phonics Screening Check was later…

  • Synthetic Vehicle Oil

    Synthetic oil 2. Regular motor oil ### Synthetic oil:- It is costly, but synthetic oil's performance and value are superior to regular oil. First off, synthetic oil is better than regular oil when it comes to its form and function. It has the ability to handle extreme high temperatures without breaking down. Synthetic oil is a lubricant consisting of chemical compounds that are made (synthesized). But it's also synthesized from other raw…

  • Essay On Synthetic Biology

    In the course of over sixty years great strides have been made in genetic science: the discovery of the double helix in 1953 and the cracking of the genetic code in 1966. Denise Caruso of the Hybrid Vigor Institute in a 2008 essay stated that synthetic biology ‘bioengineers’ use biobricks “an inventory of parts…” can be used to “assemble and programmed to compel organisms to operate in specific ways” or create “custom chemicals that can later be ‘harvested’ from cells and sold” (1). A very…

  • Exxonmobil's Six Paths Framework

    a lubricant, finding alternatives that address the same objective is rather difficult. For example, electric cars do not require oil changes as no oil is used to run the engines (Kelly, 2012). Therefore, ExxonMobil’s attempts at path one could include creating oils with longer life cycles to deliver long lubricant performance or investing in alternative fuels (i.e. canola oil). Mobil 1 Extended Life Performance oil, for example, is a high performance synthetic oil that better protects passenger…

  • Synthetic Training Environment Analysis

    Army. The Integrated Training Environment currently in use is a mash up of training systems developed over the last 35 years and is simply too expensive, outdated, and does not fully integrate as needed.8 The Synthetic Training Environment is basically the opposite of the Integrated Training Environment since it is being developed as a complete system from the beginning, incorporating all of the features quoted previously as well as adaptability for future needs as they arise. This will allow…
