Questions related to Touch
I am looking for the electrical resistivity of these polymers, does anyone know of any article that touches on this subject? Any help would be appreciated.
I've submitted a manuscript to a journal early this year, and currently the status of the submission was 'Awaiting Final Decision', unchanged from May 2022. I've tried to reach the Editor in Charge (which also happens to be the Editor-in-Chief of the journal) several times from July via the journal's 'Contact Journal' option, but got no response. I've tried emailing the Editor-in-Chief and the publisher, still no response. I've emailed the Editorial/Manuscript Submission System, and they said they are unable to help since they are only responsible up to submission process.
I'm tempted to reach out to the other members of the Editorial Board of the journal (to reach out to the Editor-in-Chief about my issue), but I'm afraid it might be deemed unprofessional. Anybody have any idea what should I do or who should I contact?

For inexplicable reasons, the surface for the sample begins to spontaneously heat up over 100 degrees during the job.
After setting the temperature I need (for example, 25 or 37 degrees), the heating element continues to work and heats the surface up to 140 degrees. Forced stop of heating through manual setting does not help.
I want to define a contact between two bodies. Due to the geometry, both bodies do not touch. The gravity would cause both bodies to touch.
I am working with PEO and gel polymers for electrolytes and I have been able to make a homogeneous casting but the gel that I make has a habit of sticking to itself if it rolls at all. During punching and subsequent use is coin cells if the gel rolls and touches itself during assembly it behaves much like two sticky sides of duct tape, making it impossible to get back apart and wasting the material.
Any one know of any additives or other techniques to make it easier during assembly that I could try that might make it less sticky? The control gel I am using is PEO+LiTFSI salt in solvent and cast then allowed to dry to evaporate the solvent.
PEO (Mw 1,000,000) in case that has anything to do with it.
The May 2022 issue of Canadian Healthcare Technology magazine has a feature report on the expansion of Electronic Health Record (EHR) systems to include genetic data. The article touches on a very important point in the first sentence, that a pan-[insert country here] EHR systems are mostly far off in many places, but in my view these would undoubtedly be beneficial to patients.
There is a regulatory and privacy landscape to navigate in different parts of the world, and a, sharing information between various states, provinces or regions, let alone hospitals within a single geography, is mostly a process covered in red tape and facilitated by the disappointingly familiar CNG tone of fax machines over a telephone line. Patient and clinician friendly processes and interfaces, along with built-in data standardization, a focus on computer-readable data capture, and interoperability are key to bringing genomic medicine into the digital age. The complexity and enormous potential of genetics and genomics in day-to-day clinical practice requires new approaches beyond pen/paper records and new technology beyond facsimile and traditional EHR systems to take us towards a better, healthier future. I would encourage you to read the article (linked below) and provide your thoughts on the subject.
I am doing a study based on laddering methodology. I have signed up for LadderUX and paid the subscription fees for one year. I have got the receipt of payment. But still the site does not give me access to the project. I have sent emails to the support email ID: email@example.com
But all emails bounced back. There is no other alternate email ID provided on the site. How can I get in touch with LadderUX? There website URL is: https://ladderux.org/
Are there any new researches about Therepeutic Touch and its effects? I am desperately looking for studies for my bachelor thesis. It should contain Therapeutic Touch and chronic pain/musculoskeletal pain.
I am running protein solution through various different types of glass columns (e.g. methyl silanised, soda lime or borosilicate glass) and I am struggling to clean these surfaces from any protein or buffer residues. So far I have used: buffer, di-water, acetone, IPA, acetonitrile and HCL solution (0.02M) but it seems that some proteins still stick to the surface. I am using water contact angle measurement to confirm the cleanliness of the columns afterwards and water spreads (slightly) more on the cleaned surfaces compared to a brand new surfaces (that has not been in touch with any protein solution). I wonder whether anyone has some tips on how to get rid of all proteins from the surface with don't destroying the glass surface (e.g. methyl functionalisation)
Many thanks and regards,
PS: I am afraid that higher concentration of HCL will destroy the surfaces functionalisation (CH3 - groups).
I would like to hear from fellow behavior analysts on massed trials and interspersed trials. Maybe I did not understand the concept well, so I will post here what I understand by each type of technique.
Massed trials: These are successive trials of the same task, usually presented in 3 blocks with 10 trials.
Interspersed trials: These are trials that are interspersed across multiple tasks, and multiple blocks are made between tasks to achieve 10 trials. That is, one of three trials of touch, then one or three of mand, then one or three of eye contact, and so on.
I usually use massed trials. From what I read in the last articles it is not clear which system gets the best results.
What is your opinion?
As we all know that the rate of using display technologies has been soaring up with each passing day. The need for glass materials for display devices such as smartphones, touch screens, or the like emerges as indispensable. In this sense, what are their rate of recycling and/or reusing for fostering the circular economy model, as well as towards carbon neutrality aims? Can anyone help to realize the facts in terms of statistical data?
Many thanks in advance for your kind contributions.
One of the technique to amplify specific band of PCR product is gel touch tip but what I get is always smear effect as seen in gel pic below, even gel Band extracted and filtrateor elution used as PCR template still i do get smear effect. I did tried to purify by phenol :chloroform , still the results are same what i am doing wrong ?
What are the best scientific proof editing and proof reading services?
I'd came across few articles with very limited scope and extremely humble results, but somehow they managed to publish the work in really good journals (I don't want to put any reference here).
The thing I observed from those articles is their presentation. The data presentation and writing was impressive and the flow of those articles was touching maximum limits. And i think this was the only reason that the article got published.
I'm not native English person, and often have some serious grammatical errors, along with content flow problem. Is there any proof editing service (not proof reading only that check grammar) that may suggest the content flow, sentence structure and other things that make the findings more colorful?
I tested with one service that roughly edit the article but most of the article remain like that, giving me the impression that my language was already good.
I am facing inconsistency between my DOS and band structures calculated from VASP. I have used the same algorithm IBRION = -1 and ISIF = 0, but ISMEAR = -5 for DOS and 0 for bands. From these settings, my DOS calculations show a Fermi energy of 4.4669, while bands are showing a value of 4.1753, the difference is pretty understandable, but behaviors are also different, like for DOS, CBM is touching the Fermi level, while in bands it is around 0.28 eV away from the Fermi level. If I subtract the DOS and band calculated fermi energy from my band structure data, then their behavior is matching, but what is the need of doing so? Can somebody please suggest that what can be the possible reasons for the same or where I am doing wrong?
Thanks in advance!
It seems there aren't many academic researchers in the UK with a 2D-LC for biopharma applications. I am attempting to find a UK collaborator for a potential PhD project but they optimally would have a comprehensive 2D-LC.
Does anyone know anyone I could get in touch with in the UK?
Agriculture is updating day by day so that we should keep in touch with the new dimension.I want to do research on precision agriculture in the rice sector. If anyone provide me suggestions regarding the issue, it will be very helpful for me.
i am facing a problem that previously in touch down and in gradient PCR of specific gene, specific band with non specific product come. but after 2-3 weeks when this same gene PCR was performed for optimization to minimize the non specific product with same primers and DNA no product was appear. what is the reason for that.
I have tried to solubilize rimonabant (CB1 inverse agonist) in DMSO (5% in saline or Ringer's Lacatate, 3 mg/mL) for intravenous injections in rats, but I haven't succeeded yet. The drug precipitates as soon as the first aqueous vehicle drop touches the mixture.
What are the other options?
In Touchdown PCR, the annealing temperature in the early cycles is usually 3 5 C above the
standard Tm of the primers used, while in the later cycles it is a similar
amount below the Tm but why??
DOS commands are the commands available in MS-DOS that are used to interact with the operating system and other command line based software. Unlike in Windows, DOS commands are the primary way in which you use the operating system. Windows and other modern OSs use a graphics-based system designed for touch or a mouse.
A photo of a person or thing clicked through a camera is absolutely perfect. Sketches or pictures drawn by an artist is artistically or aesthetically perfect. A mirror image is also perfect, but cannot be touched and also in different direction.
The question is, according to you, which one is more perfect?
And if you are to praise the creator (of the photograph, sketch, picture or mirror image), to whom will you give more credit?
I have been working on developing a unified marketing measurement model which combines the output of Market Mix Models and Multi touch attribution models.
I came across articles where Bayesian priors is a suggested method, but I am yet to come across any research paper which actually discusses the details of implementation/feasibility of using this Bayesian priors approach.
If someone is/has worked on this topic and could share some notes/references or guide me in the right direction, I would be highly obliged.
I have just taken delivery of a ThermoFisher QS3 qPCR machine. On set-up i found the touch screen to be very clunky, freezing - apparently randomly - for periods of between 5 sec to > 1 min, allowing no text input or icon selection.
Has anyone else had this problem? Is the touch screen on the QS3 generally poor, or is this a problem with my machine?
I've done a few ELISA tests and I'm wondering about how to mix correctly my samples (cell culture supernatant) and the dilution buffer during an ELISA experiment.
For some experiments, I've directly mixed the samples and the dilution buffer in the wells of the ELISA plate, but carefuly, without touching the well walls and the bottom. I had good results at the end.
But my question is simple, is it ok to do that?
I know that it's better to do the mix before but with a lot of samples, It's easier to directly mix in the wells. About that, do you have any advices or tips on how to do the mix of samples and buffer, for exemple in plates, tubes?..
Thank you in advance
please help me i am doing it for months but i am unable to do it. Here actually i wana do dynamic analysis in which a flat sheet will turn into curve sheet dynamically and at the same time i want stress curve which will also be ofcourse dynamic
is someone using an MRI compatible touch tablet? and where do you get yours from?
I read that many studies used that one from Tam et al (2011), but somehow I am not able to find any shop where to purchase it or to get any more details about it.
I have been trying to take images of my cells using 40X lens. I focus my cells first with the 4X then 20X lenses; but whenever I switch to the 40X I can't see the cells, not even out of focus. All I see is blurred image of the plate. I tried zooming in till the lens almost touched the plate but to no use.
There are two materials A and B out of which one is a metal and second is a semiconductor . How can we identify and classify them just by touching or observing them without performing any test?

Which machine learning model is best suited to predict or sense the mood of a smartphone user from their touch behaviour ( collected data includes motion sensor readings such as Accelerometer, gyroscope and magnetometer and touch dynamics such as touch pressure, keystroke latencies etc)?
Very often, the abstract is the last thing that authors prepare as they bask in the glory of putting the finishing touches to an article for submission. Alas, very often, this appears rushed, poorly thought through and in many cases, a copy and paste composite of key sentences in the article.
In the link below, Founding Editor-in-Chief of the journal Tourism Geographies (Taylor & Francis), Alan A. Lew offers some handy tips.
Quote: "I think it is safe to say that the goal of both authors and journal editors is to publish papers that our peers will read and cite in their work. I believe that the abstract is the second most important part of the paper in achieving that, with the title being the most important".
This question and other puzzling thoughts are summarized in a recently posted assay “Inconvenient issues in sciences”.
I attempt to answer some of the questions in recent papers but realize that I have barely touched on a much deeper problem. I am wondering if there is an appetite for this kind of thinking.
I have a new approach for cartilage repair. Looking for collaboration with researchers in the field of osteoarthritis and cartilage repair
I have three months of turtle plasma samples in my freezer that unfortunately did not close properly and results in Some of the samples thawing. The freezer normally sits between -20-30c and most of it remained frozen but samples near the front thawed. They were still cold to the touch upon discovery. I'll be using this plasma for steroid hormone quantification in turtles (E2, P4 and T), I know steroids don't tend to break down as a quickly as some other compounds but just curious to see if folks think these samples should be ok to run via assay and give accurate results still.
After clearly looking the spread of disease world wide i have serious doubt on mode of transmission of COVID-19 It is not transmitted through air, water etc. The COVID-19 transmitted when a person come to direct contacts with the sneezing or coughing droplets of infected person's. or When person hand touches infected area and then with the same hand touch's to his/her nose or eye. I wont this a disease with this type of transmission can cause this huge disasters. Please add your feedback, this help in making a proper plane in controlling the disasters.
I am simulating a photodiode with the following structure from top to bottom;
ITO - top electrode
a-Si:H (Amorphous silicon) - gain medium
ITO - conductive layer
n-doped Silicon- bottom substrate
(electrode placed on bottom)
I first used Athena to create the structure, and when I read the file into Atlas, it makes the middle ITO layer an electrode. The middle ITO layer should not be an electrode. I also tried using a floating contact on the middle ITO electrode to try to "eliminate" it. Almost no current leaves through the electrode, but the voltage in this layer is no longer continuous with the other layers touching the middle ITO, so I am not sure if this is a valid way to simulate it.
When I use Atlas to create the structure, I have more control to define the electrodes, but I get convergence issues when I have ITO as the middle layer. When this material is changed to SiO2, I am able to run the simulation.
I have posted the floating contact method to this file.
I am dealing with PHAs for injection molding applications. I am trying to simulate the process using injection molding simulation softwares like Moldex3D. Obviously, you need to add the properties of the plastic you’re dealing with to the software‘s library. The thing is the properties of PHAs are not available on such softwares. So you have to do some rheological, PVT, and thermal testings to get such properties which will be costly if you don’t have the equipment.
** Please take a look at the attached required properties (for another type of plastics) to add materials to any injection molding simulation software, can you suggest any way that can give me a rough approximation for such properties without carrying out the tests; because I don’t have the equipment.
- Materials suppliers don’t have these required properties too.
Any replies will be highly appreciated.
I have some PHAs blended with fillers and nucleating agents, yet I don't know what kind of fillers or nucleating agents. The producer has shut down and there's no way to get in touch with.
** Any ideas how can I identify the type of fillers and nucleating agents?
I was thinking to use EDS to identify the type of fillers, I am not sure though...
Any responses will be highly appreciated.
Looking for help in writing my research proposal in the following areas : HRIS / HR / Change management / Remote work
Please get in touch with me if that sounds like your expertise.
Thank you very much !
The essence of your presentation is quite engaging as it touches upon partially due to surplus engagement hence felt a shortage of time. why can't we devise certain dos and don't to mitigate unnecessary engagements on the general individual level, so as to pave ways for everyone to stick to some acceptable healthy pattern for living a healthy normal life without the essence of a feel of undeceiveness?
When I observed a slum village, a place to live that could actually be changed became better, but because the culture of the residents living there was difficult to change, this activity became a lot of obstacles, not as easy as implementing a theory. which is very difficult to change is the perception of local residents who do not want to change. I want to design a questionnaire that can touch their hearts when they answer. Thank you all.
I have just been listening to one of early directors of Microdoft. We know that maximising clicks in software, Instagram, Amazon etc helps collate biodata. He therefore is pushing books as important for education. He wants children to use books for learning, he wants universities to hold great libraries. Of course early philanthropic efforts focused on building libraries as education most important.i have downsized books but have Kindle but write from my books.
What do you feel? Should we be promoting a book we can touch, see the cover, see original publisher and help appreciate history of words, stories, debate. Imagine...can you read Tolkien on a phone?
Could research teams or individual researchers working on Copper (Cu) - or Iron (Fe) - based Shape Memory Materials get in touch with me? Nitinol, as things stand, is an expensive material. Availability of more affordable Smart or Shape Memory materials would help Structural Engineers and other engineering specialisms.
Any thoughts? Interested in collaborative work???
In The Great Influenza by John Barry at p. 340, about government controlling fear, writes: "They could not control it because every true report had been diluted with lies." At page 460, he writes: "For if there is a single dominant lesson from 1918, it's that governments need to tell the truth in a crisis. Risk communication implies managing the truth. You don't manage the truth. You tell the truth."

After reported first coronavirus case in State of Washington January 20, 2020, and seeing first case death in Seattle Hospital, quarter there had been more than 10,000 case reported in Seattle hospital itself. The life of normal human being has been changed so far. It has started with buying basic shopping in grocery stores to entertainment and shopping.
The question is here that what New Normal is for consumer who was regularly visited shopping malls, cinema halls, musical parks, resorts and other public events.
Will consumer behave the normal way as they were doing previously?
The effect of Covid-19 will remain forever or it will vanish with the time…???
Let me brief my experience of shopping in a store in North Carolina (USA) after the store just opened from the lockdown. We went for Guitar shopping and in the process, I visited two stores in-person and before that I visited many websites to understand the basic features and other essential accessories for the guitar for beginner. We were about to book online seeing online deal of the product but we hold our decision for a day. After brainstorming, we decided to visit some stores at least to have a look of guitar and just to have feel of it while holding guitar in hands. Please note here that I mentioned here to have feel of Guitar. That’s very important for consumer in buying at least in some product/s to have feel while consuming it or using it.
Since we are first time guitar buyer, it is very important for us to have a feel before buying it. In case of guitar, I understand during the buying process of guitar that guitars are available in different sizes, shapes and strings. The material is also very important and keep in mind while buying as a beginner buyer of guitar.
So again come to the point of buying product after New Normal…. Is not a Normal anymore, isn’t it?
When we entered into a store of Guitar, we were told to sanitize our hands and not to touch anything unless you finalize your buying decision. Of course, they allow to touch on your two or three options but not randomly touching all that you want to see like previously you did in a store normally. Now that is not at all Normal. Because storekeeper has to sanitize all the products what customers have touched to see? Uff! Isn’t it big task? More important he cannot cater or allow all the customers depends on the size of the store to enter at a time. Storeowners has to have a dedicated person to supervise this in a store.
So now there is one more role added in the storeowner duty i.e. apart from cleaning or better to say sanitize all the products before opening the store, during store hours and while closing the store, make sure all the staffs wear masks and hand glows and keep customers in line in tact in store so they can follow “six feet distancing” among all other next customers.
This is just one small example for buying guitar in a store. There are number of products irrespective of its nature of origin.
The challenge is that how the business offers products to the consumers in New Normal.
Will consumers back for shopping as usual or they restrict themselves not to be in public immediate contact of any such products?
What experience can business house offer to consumers in New Normal?
What about the products that we try buy wearing and having ‘touch feel’ of it before buying?
I want to calibrate the colloidal probe (pre-calibrated) with 3.5um of the tip radius (Atomic force microscopy performed is Dimension Icon, sofware is Nanoscope V). I do not know could I use the "No touch" calibration ? then Do I need to move the probe to the sapphire to determine the deflection sensitivity and Sync distance by Advance calibration ? I confuse when we should use "No touch", "Touch" and "Advanced" calibration ?
Thank you in advance your answer.
he disease causes respiratory illness (like the flu) with symptoms such as a cough, fever, and in more severe cases, difficulty breathing. You can protect yourself by washing your hands frequently, avoiding touching your face, and avoiding close contact (1 meter or 3 feet) with people who are unwell.
Is there any successful medice that have come up.

Hi all, I wish to understand why doesn't all polymerase can detect a single copy of region of interest?
While some polymerase is more sensitive (like dreamtaq), and some are less sensitive, what is the difference if the primer annealing condition is the same? Is it due to affinity? What caused the variation, what is that factor?
How about increasing PCR cycle to detect a single copy? If unspecificity is an issue, then how about utilising touch down PCR first?
-------------------------Answer Update (9/6/2020) -------------------------
To summarise the answers from below, assuming all DNA and water is clean with no contamination in reaction, the lower plasmid number detection limit is different in different companies (like DreamTaq v.s. Q5) due to following reason.
1. The salt composition in different buffer (affecting annealing), possible that manufacturer weight between specificity and sensitivity. We can also see different enzyme recommends using different Tm. Tm-5 to Tm+3.
2. Innate performance of polymerase and response to other additives (accounting to % of actually active taq in solution)
3. The statistical chance to amplify one single plasmid in respond to 1 and 2.
I have been trying to simulate an MMC in a rectifier-mode using PWM.
First, I modeled a single phase MMC on PSIM software and simulated it in an inverter-mode, and made sure it worked. Then I connected a voltage source on the AC side and loaded the converter on the DC side (effectively making it operate as a rectifier), using the same PWM scheme. I get a zero voltage at the DC side as the AC source seems to be shorted through both the upper and lower arms, hence there is no voltage between the positive and the negative output DC terminals. Is there any difference in terms of modulation, structure, or any other, between an MMC rectifier and an MMC inverter? Most research papers seem to talk about an MMC inverter, never touching on the MMC rectifier.
Thanks in advance for your contribution.
Nowadays everybody in Research gate and many other medias are discussing about this disaster, but Who will suffer as a result of the slowdown in economic activity amid the pandemic and lockdown?
I am looking for a researcher with interest in proof-reading a pre-print of systematic review and meta-analysis. and a primary expertise in epidemiology of respiratory viruses.

young students are very susceptible to new influences from outside their familiar environment. Availability of internet at their finger touch is a blessing and curse depending upon how you use it.
How can a young student who is new to research use this self-isolation time to better equip himself?
Any suggestions are well-come.
A common trend I have seen among many shoppers and other people, in this troubling times, is the wearing of latex gloves as a measure against contracting the Covid- 19 virus. While shopping, many of these people touch surfaces and items (possibly with the virus) and then touch their phones as they listen to a phone call, and/or browse social media sites, possibly transferring the virus onto the surface of their phones. When they reach home, they take the latex gloves off, maybe wash their hands and go back to touching their (maybe) Covid-19 infested phones with their bare hands, transferring the virus from the phone to their hands. Does this concern you too? Let's stay safe people.
Purpose (Public Health): Please share it to your community.Prevention is better than Cure :
The following preventions may help us to stop Carona Virus
1.HANDS: Wash them often
2.ELBOW: Cough into it
3.FACE :Don't touch it
4.SPACE : Keep safe distance
5.HOME : Stay if you can
What can I do to protect myself and others from COVID-19?
The following actions help prevent the spread of COVID-19, as well as other coronaviruses and influenza:
- Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
- Stay home when you are sick.
- Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
- Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.
- Wash your hands often with soap and water.
I plan to use Image J for analyzing images, specifically for computing the stained areas on the images. I feel it is an inefficient and time-consuming exercise to analyze images using ImageJ on computers; has anybody come across an alternative, specifically on touch screens systems i.e.iPad or Surface which are equally accurate?
