Over the next decade, American manufacturers are facing an industrial skills gap with projections of 2 million manufacturing jobs going unfilled due to a lack of qualified and skilled applicants. A large portion of the current manufacturing workforce is nearing retirement age and younger generations often lack the interest to learn the technical skills associated with jobs in manufacturing. Furthermore, occupational injuries cost U.S. companies more than $13 billion annually, with overexertion injuries accounting for the majority of injuries.

08:09 Gizmag VW previews 2019 SUV in New York with Atlas Cross Sport concept


In response to car buyers' seemingly unquenchable thirst for SUVs, Volkswagen has previewed a new Atlas concept at the New York International Auto Show. Like the Atlas mid-size SUV that went on sale last year in North America, the Atlas Cross Sport concept is built on VW's MQB platform, but seats five instead of seven, and features a plug-in hybrid powertrain delivering 355 hp (265 kW) and around 26 miles (42 km) of all-electric range.

17:17 GenEngNews.comSingle-Cell RNA-Seq Used to Start Creation of Malaria Cell Atlas

In 2017, the global death toll from malaria was almost half a million people and over 200 million stricken with the parasitic infection. With rampant drug resistance continuing to spread, a greater understanding of the molecular mechanisms that govern the malaria parasite’s lifecycle is paramount to developing improved therapies and prophylaxes. Thankfully, investigators from the Wellcome Sanger Institute have just released their new transcriptomic findings that are the first step towards developing the Malaria Cell Atlas, a data resource that will provide gene activity profiles of individual malaria parasites throughout their lifecycle.         Findings from the new study—published today in eLife through an article entitled “ Single-cell RNA-seq reveals hidden transcriptional variation in malaria parasites ”—shows how the research team utilized new

19:40 Aps.org Editors' SuggestionsAtlas for the properties of elemental two-dimensional metals

Author(s): Janne Nevalaita and Pekka Koskinen Two-dimensional materials research has recently advanced to free-standing, atomically thin metallic nanostructures. To facilitate further progress, the authors construct a periodic table for the properties of 2D elemental metals using density functional theory. The theoretical values for cohesive energies, bond lengths, and elastic moduli of 45 metals correlate linearly with the corresponding properties of the familiar bulk metals. The presentation of these correlations and their causes provides for profound insights into material research that would help design new 2D nanosize heterostructures with optical, catalytic, and nanoelectronic applications.
