In the March issue of Materials World, we cover nanotube-covered titanium that could be used as blood-repellent medical implants. These can be used as clot-resistant surgical implants, described by Dr Arun Kota as ‘the Holy Grail of the medical device industry.’

I’m reminded of a previous demonstration of tuneable superomniphobic surfaces from Kota back in 2014. Again working with titanium, the coating is able to trap certain low surface tension liquids on a variable scale. Also, it looks kinda cool.

THIS SHOW IS SO PURE!

It’s worth noting that Kenneth spent the entire episode making the game (and the subsequent fight) as inclusive as possible for JJ and his disabled friends (all of whom were played by disabled actors/actresses).

BONUS:

Bonus #2

Of course I had to show the best part:

The show is Speechless. It’s on ABC.

It’s a fucking amazing show. They also fairly regularly tackle issues of racism and intersectionality.
It’s worth noting that a LARGE part of its accuracy comes from the fact that not only Micah Fowler (the actor in this photoset) really has cerebral palsy, but so does their consultant, Eva Sweeney, and they deserve acknowledgement of that fact. The laser pointer AAC technology pictured here is one Sweeney invented for her own use (at sixteen years old!), and they rewrote the show to incorporate it. The show also works directly with the Cerebral Palsy Foundation, too.

tl;dr Speechless is one of the last great Non-Problematic Faves and fucking everyone should watch it. And, I mean, it has a 98% on rotten tomatoes and is considered a surefire bet for renewal. So there’s that.

FUCKING WATCH IT.

“what accommodations can i devise to allow these gorgeous youths an equal-opportunity deathmatch” is quite possibly one of the greatest sentences ever uttered
