A Robot Be Doing Your Job In 5 Years

We have all read this click bait title many times over. 

Yes, we are at the dawn of the autonomous revolution and ultimately, some jobs will be replaced by robots. The good news is that this revolution is going to accelerate science and technology at a rapid pace. The companies and individuals who invest and embrace automation will have a large competitive advantage over those who stick to traditional techniques.

Vape Pens & "High" Viscosity

Posted by Rick Paulino

May 9, 2017 11:00:00 AM

As marijuana use becomes more mainstream, the use of vaporizer pens or vape pens as a delivery system for THC is steadily increasing in popularity. Vape pens are not your classic bongs as seen in some old school Cheech and Chong movies, but are in fact a high-tech device; a high-tech device where precision and accuracy are critical to performance.

What Happens if You Stir a Cup of Zero Viscosity Coffee?

Posted by LuLu

May 2, 2017 11:00:00 AM

First of all, the question is-- can there be a coffee or liquid with zero viscosity coffee?  We know that there is negative viscosity. Is having zero viscosity similar?

Viscosity is the resistance of a fluid to flow and it comes from the friction of molecules as they move against each other within the fluid. All fluids have at least some resistance to flow – except super fluids.

Severe blood loss treated wIth Hyper-Viscosity

Posted by David Nieto

Aug 3, 2016 2:10:25 PM

Researchers from UC San Diego have come up with a radically different solution for severe blood loss treatment. In their study, fluids with much higher salt content than conventional saline are combined with viscosity enhancers with the purpose of thickening blood.

Got Sauce?

Creation of foods and beverages has been researched and been developed into its own science. Did you know that the viscosity of the foods that you eat also affects the taste? Just as texture, the thickness of a sauce, the ooey-gooey melted cheese, and even your saliva as you read this sentence all has a viscosity.

I tried my own combination for Mac & Cheese, what do you think?

Oobleck, a common name for the final product of mixing corn starch with water. Not only is it named after the mysterious materials falling from the sky in the Dr Seus's story, "Bartholomew & the Oobleck," this combination of materials is a great example of non-Newtonian fluid. (What is a non-Newtonian Fluid? What is Newtonian?

Additives Control Lubricant Viscosity and Provide More Consistent Performance

Posted by Jobylyn Pineda

Apr 14, 2016 1:47:38 PM

Valvoline has recently launched a pressure-activated cobalt grease that can protect engine parts from damage especially in high temperature environments. The purpose of the grease is to provide a continuous film between moving parts under pressure. Normally under high temperature, the friction between moving parts and the lubricant reduces the viscosity of the film, potentially resulting in metal-to-metal contact. Valvoline’s cobalt grease employs a lithium sulfonate complex thickening system that is effective in dissipating heat and preventing corrosion in extreme conditions.
