Denver Zoo is happy to announce the birth of Umi (OOH-mee), an endangered Malayan tapir (TAY-purr). The female calf, whose name means “life” in Indonesian, was born to mother Rinny, and father Benny, early the morning of May 6. She is only the third birth of her species at the Zoo. Umi will remain behind the scenes at the Zoo’s Toyota Elephant Passage habitat, while being cared for by her mother, until she is able to swim and they are both comfortable enough to venture outdoors. This is the third birth for both parents and Rinny has already proven to be a very patient mother, calmly making sure Umi is nursing successfully. Rinny was born at Seattle’s Woodland Park Zoo in 2007 and came to Denver Zoo from there in 2010. Benny was born at the City of Belfast Zoo in Ireland in 2006 and arrived at Denver Zoo from there in 2007. The two were paired under recommendation of the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA) Species Survival Plan (SSP) which ensures healthy populations and genetic diversity among zoo animals. Fortunately, the couple has proved to be an excellent match. Though they are most closely related to horses and rhinos, tapirs are similar in build to pigs, but significantly larger. Malayan tapirs have a large, barrel shaped body ideal for crashing through dense forest vegetation. Their noses and upper lips are extended to form a long, prehensile snout similar to a stubby version of an elephant’s trunk. Malayan tapirs are the largest of the four tapir species. As adults, they can stand more than 3-feet-tall and can stretch from between 6 to 8-feet-long. On average they weigh between 700 and 900 pounds. They are also excellent swimmers and spend much of their time in water. They can even use their flexible noses as snorkels! As adults, Malayan tapirs have a distinctive color pattern that some people say resembles an Oreo cookie, black in the front and back, separated by a white or gray midsection. This provides excellent camouflage that breaks up the tapir’s outline in the shadows of the forest. By contrast, young tapirs have color patterns that more resemble brown watermelons, with spots and stripes, which help them blend into the dappled sunlight and leaf shadows of the forest to protect them from predators. Malayan tapirs are the only tapir native to Asia. Once found throughout Southeast Asia, they now inhabit only the rainforests of the Indochinese peninsula and Sumatra. With a wild population of less than 2,000 individuals, they are classified as endangered by the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN), due to habitat loss and hunting.


The Google Pixel 2 is among the most hotly anticipated smartphones of this year and a concept video envisions a sleek all-screen design and a cool dual camera setup. Google rebranded its Nexus line of devices last year into Pixel, launching the Google Pixel and Pixel XL made in collaboration with HTC. The company is expected to launch new-generation smartphones later this year and as always, the rumor mill is trying to anticipate what's to come. Google signed HTC as the contract manufacturer for two years, which means that the 2017 Pixel 2 smartphones will come from HTC as well. Without much to go on, YouTube channel Concept Creator envisioned what the Google Pixel 2 could bring to the table and its concept design is gorgeous. Before delving into the matter, it's worth pointing out that concept designs don't show a real product in its final form, but rather tease what could be. Concept Creator also came up with an attractive Galaxy Note 8 concept recently and the latest Pixel 2 Concept is equally appealing. Pixel 2 leaks so far have been scarce when it comes to design details so Concept Creators didn't have much information to include in its render. Nevertheless, it envisioned a design similar to its predecessor in some respects, but also with some cues borrowed from current flagships. Concept Creator's Google Pixel 2 design boasts dual cameras on both the smartphone's front and back. The 2016 Google Pixel smartphones already sport impressive cameras, but dual cameras front and back should significantly up the ante. Considering that increasingly more smartphone makers are now equipping their flagships with dual camera setups, the idea doesn't seem too far-fetched. The Pixel 2 concept design also includes another major trend on the smartphone market: bezel-less design. The smartphone rendered in this video sports a gorgeous all-screen design, which could be a major selling point if it's indeed in the cards. The smartphone is expected to sport an OLED screen just like its predecessor. Based on rumors and speculation so far, the Google Pixel 2 is expected to come with a 5.5-inch QHD display (2,560 x 1,440 pixels), the same Snapdragon 835 processor powering the high-end Samsung Galaxy S8, 6 GB of RAM, and 128 GB and 256 GB internal storage configurations. Google Assistant, the Pixel Launcher, and Daydream VR are almost a given, since the Pixel 2 will come as a "phone by Google." The 2016 Pixel and Pixel XL hit the market without the dust and water resistance that many other flagships have, but the 2017 Pixels are expected to make up for it. That said, the Google Pixel 2 is expected to sport an IP68 rating, enabling the device to withstand being submerged in up to 1.5 meters (about 5 feet) of water for up to 30 minutes. Lastly, rumors also hinted at an improved battery performance with this year's Pixel 2, but no specific details are available yet. The 2016 Pixel and Pixel XL featured 2,770 mAh and 3,450 mAh batteries, respectively. Google could keep the size of the battery unchanged for the Pixel 2 line, but increase the battery life through software optimizations. While the purported specs are still in the rumor state at this point, we do know for sure that Google will unveil its premium Pixel 2 range later this year and the smartphones will serve as launch vehicles for the company's latest OS version, Android 8.0 O (likely Oreo). Until more information becomes available, check out the video below to see Concept Creator's beautiful Google Pixel 2 concept design. © 2017 Tech Times, All rights reserved.

Agency: GTR | Branch: EPSRC | Program: | Phase: Training Grant | Award Amount: 3.99M | Year: 2014

The Scottish Doctoral Training Centre in Condensed Matter Physics, known as the CM-DTC, is an EPSRC-funded Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) addressing the broad field of Condensed Matter Physics (CMP). CMP is a core discipline that underpins many other areas of science, and is one of the Priority Areas for this CDT call. Renewal funding for the CM-DTC will allow five more annual cohorts of PhD students to be recruited, trained and released onto the market. They will be highly educated professionals with a knowledge of the field, in depth and in breadth, that will equip them for future leadership in a variety of academic and industrial careers. Condensed Matter Physics research impacts on many other fields of science including engineering, biophysics, photonics, chemistry, and materials science. It is a significant engine for innovation and drives new technologies. Recent examples include the use of liquid crystals for displays including flat-screen and 3D television, and the use of solid-state or polymeric LEDs for power-saving high-illumination lighting systems. Future examples may involve harnessing the potential of graphene (the worlds thinnest and strongest sheet-like material), or the creation of exotic low-temperature materials whose properties may enable the design of radically new types of (quantum) computer with which to solve some of the hardest problems of mathematics. The UKs continued ability to deliver transformative technologies of this character requires highly trained CMP researchers such as those the Centre will produce. The proposed training approach is built on a strong framework of taught lecture courses, with core components and a wide choice of electives. This spans the first two years so that PhD research begins alongside the coursework from the outset. It is complemented by hands-on training in areas such as computer-intensive physics and instrument building (including workshop skills and 3D printing). Some lecture courses are delivered in residential schools but most are videoconferenced live, using the well-established infrastructure of SUPA (the Scottish Universities Physics Alliance). Students meet face to face frequently, often for more than one day, at cohort-building events that emphasise teamwork in science, outreach, transferable skills and careers training. National demand for our graduates is demonstrated by the large number of companies and organisations who have chosen to be formally affiliated with our CDT as Industrial Associates. The range of sectors spanned by these Associates is notable. Some, such as e2v and Oxford Instruments, are scientific consultancies and manufacturers of scientific equipment, whom one would expect to be among our core stakeholders. Less obviously, the list also represents scientific publishers, software houses, companies small and large from the energy sector, large multinationals such as Solvay-Rhodia and Siemens, and finance and patent law firms. This demonstrates a key attraction of our graduates: their high levels of core skills, and a hands-on approach to problem solving. These impart a discipline-hopping ability which more focussed training for specific sectors can complement, but not replace. This breadth is prized by employers in a fast-changing environment where years of vocational training can sometimes be undermined very rapidly by unexpected innovation in an apparently unrelated sector. As the UK builds its technological future by funding new CDTs across a range of priority areas, it is vital to include some that focus on core discipline skills, specifically Condensed Matter Physics, rather than the interdisciplinary or semi-vocational training that features in many other CDTs. As well as complementing those important activities today, our highly trained PhD graduates will be equipped to lay the foundations for the research fields (and perhaps some of the industrial sectors) of tomorrow.

Mondelez International is fully committed to make a significant reduction in salt content across its product portfolio by 2020. Through this project, in partnership with the University of Nottingham, a novel approach to reduce the salt levels in crackers and savoury snacks will be developed. Ultimately a new alternative to standard topping salt will be developed and made available in the UK enabling great tasting products with lower salt levels. This will to allow consumers to continue enjoying the products they love without consuming unnecessarily high levels of salt.
