Editage, the flagship brand of CACTUS, has launched Statistical Analysis and Review Service for the researcher and academia community. This service will provide expert statisticians to extract crucial information from complex quantitative data, draw inferences, and discover hidden patterns using the right statistical tools and methods– helping authors increase the chances of journal acceptance and reduce their decision-making time. With 3,000+ technical experts and statisticians across 1,600 subject areas, Editage will provide customized one-on-one consultations, expert feedback, recommendations, and robust data analysis to researchers.
Cybersecurity experts at TU Graz (Graz University of Technology) have launched an online course designed as a sitcom on side channel attacks, in which physical effects allow inferences to be made about protected data. The first of two new seasons of the educational sitcom will go online on 23 August.
As technology progresses, devices are getting smaller, low-cost, and more efficient. The advent of Internet of Things (IoT) has made researchers explore ways to make sensors more compact and portable. In a new study, researchers from Chung-Ang University, Korea have developed a device that is operable via breathing and can, therefore, be integrated into gas masks. This device is capable of powering LEDs and Bluetooth trackers, and can monitor breathing patterns and chemical warfare agents.

All children born before full term are more likely to have poorer attainment during primary school compared with children born full term (39-41 weeks), but only children born very preterm—before 32 weeks— remain at risk of poor attainment at the end of secondary schooling, according to a new study published this week in the open-access journal PLOS ONE by Neora Alterman, Maria Quigley of Oxford Population Health, U.K., and colleagues.
