    25 Apr 2015 | 4:34 am
    Can we bring it to Africa? London Centre for Nanotechnology reports: We live in the age of nanotechnology. Scientists can now build structures one atom or molecule at a time, like children building with LEGO blocks. This is leading to completely new paradigms for the design and synthesis of materials: atom manipulation, molecular self-assembly, DNA origami, synthetic biology and nanoelectronics are commonplace in the laboratory. But for most non-scientists, nanotechnology sounds more like science fiction than something that affects their everyday lives. LEGO2NANO aims to change that. Starting…

    The University of Cape Town removed a controversial statue of British colonialist Cecil Rhodes last week, after a month of student protests. Rhodes, who build the De Beers diamond empire, was an unrepentant imperialist whose wealth came from purchasing mineral rights from indigenous leaders and turning their territories into British protectorates. Under his rule in Cape Colony, many Africans lost the right to vote, a step which some scholars see as leading to enforced racial segregation in South Africa. While Rhodes made major donations to charitable causes – including the land the…

    On Thursday morning, heavily armed attackers, believed to be members of al-Shabaab, invaded Garissa University and killed 147 students. Mohamed Kuno, a high-ranking al-Shabaab official, has been named by the Kenyan government as the mastermind of the attack. Two days later, we are hearing terrifying details, including a student who hid in a wardrobe for more than 50 hours, afraid that the police who came to rescue here were militants trying to lure her out. Her decision was a wise one – the militants told students they would live if they came out of their dormitories… then lined…

    What’s a “holy shit visualization”? It’s a way of looking at data that makes turns a statistic you might have flipped past in a book or skimmed by on a web page into something that you can’t forget. It’s a visceral reminder of the power of images and the power of looking at dry numbers in human terms. For Mike Evans, the map below was a holy shit visualization.

    What is the main difference between high-income and developing countries? Here is my take: People in the former have much more of pretty much everything. Almost everyone living in high-income countries has access to electricity; in poor (low-income) countries, 7 out of 10 people don’t. Most families in rich countries own a car, but only a few people living in the developing world do. On per capita basis, rich economies have 15 times more doctors than poor countries, consume 40 times more energy, have 50 times more ATMs, and so on.
