It’s a project of engineers without borders, which expect to introduce this technique next year in Tanzania. In addition to coal, the process produces biogas. Students of the Technical University of Berlin have developed a process to produce biological carbon from human feces, it announced Monday the Organization engineers without borders. This technique will be put into practice between July and September in a greenhouse in Berlin and if successful will be introduced year coming in Tanzania, said Volker Eiselein, spokesman for the organization. Coal serves as fertiliser for crops and because of its porous properties is suitable as water tank and to protect from erosion, said. Thanks to this new technique, feces may be purified of hygienically and charred at high temperatures. Parallel to the process of carbonization occurs biogas plant also designed by students. The remaining substrates will be mixed with purified droppings to be processed, explained Eiselein, who pointed out that the heat needed for this process will be extracted from the biogas plant. Office in Berlin of engineers without borders, which since 2006 focuses his work on the Tanzanian’s Kaguera region, has carried out several projects of water and energy in collaboration with the Organization Mavuno Project.

Young people who have been approved in recent weeks selectivity must choose career. And they will find a little more difficult to get into which you want to, because the competition is greater mainly due to the increase of students with a small reduction of the offer. If during the 2009-2010 could access with a grade point average 5 approximately 60% of races offered face-to-face public campuses, this 2010-2011 course that is about to end the approved just gave access to little more than 42%, i.e. more than 890 qualifications (counting each race at each faculty). If the criterion we relaxed a bit and get into that bag races which are 5 and 5.1, the figure grows up to 940 titles, 45%. On the opposite side, in more than 130 titles it took out more than one 10 to enter. Source of the news:: choose career, harder by selectivity and the rise in students
Diana Sanchez 20 m Marta C. was traveling with his Huron Juliette in the interior of a bus. The Huron escaped while Marta slept and the animal was evicted from the vehicle, because travelers believed that it was a rat. By unclear circumstances, the animal died and Marta has denounced the bus company; It alleges that the girl committed several negligence.

Experts warn that Spanish universities serve not enough technological progress in relation to medicine. They advocate to modify the current system so that medical schools teach a formation capable of meeting the challenges of today and, above all, of the future. The doctor away Pazos, of the University of A Coruna, Coordinator of a Conference on Biomedical Informatics and personalized medicine that have been held in the corunesa town of Padron, warned of poor training in new technologies of the students of medicine in Spain. In Spain is being not offered adequate training to physicians to meet the needs of the practice of medicine today and of the future, Pazos said in a telephone interview coinciding with the celebration of the 4th International Symposium on Biomedical Informatics in Europe.That meeting was attended by experts from various European countries, mainly in the Iberian Peninsula, and United States. Any doctor spends hours and hours at the computer, said Pazos, who lamented that the Spanish universities not addressed sufficiently technological progress and the challenges posed to the future exercise of that profession. Some studies underline the inadequate technological formation of students in medicine and the important gaps in knowledge of genomics, legislation or ethics, said Pazos, Professor of computer science and Artificial Intelligence and director of the Department of information technologies and the communication of the University of A Coruna.The challenges of today and of the future stressed that it is necessary to sensitize public opinion and the authorities change the current system so that medical schools teach a formation capable of meeting the challenges of today and, above all, of the future. He stressed that some large U.S. universities have established alliances, among which highlighted the of Harvard with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, both based in the city of Boston.
Commercial results therefore advocated giving a shift towards this new medicine of the future that requires preparation more open to other areas in which new diagnostics, treatments, drugs or therapies will be developed. Pazos noted that in Spain, as in the whole of Europe, there are research groups, with aid from public institutions, but regretted missing the last link in the chain that will allow patenting and reap the commercial results of these discoveries. There is a very good scientific production in Europe, but prevails the paradox that there is not a business sector willing to assume risk, nor in Galicia and Spain to commercialize and patenting, he noted.
