The Quad-City Times is pleased to announce a new hardcover coffee-table book, Into the Fields: A Celebration of Farm Life. This unique book provides an up-close and personal look at farm life over the years through the eyes of the Quad-City photographers and the treasured stories from writer Jennifer Ewoldt. Since 2009, Jennifer Ewoldt has been sharing memorable tales about farming and rural life in her column, “Rural Route 4.” Over the years, Quad-City Times readers have gotten to know her family, the ups and downs of the farm economy, the terror of drought, the celebration of a good harvest and the pain that comes from the death of a favorite horse. The column is paired with beautiful photography showing farming and rural life in our community. The photos span generations – some pulled from the newspaper archives and many others shot by Quad-City Times staff photographer Jeff Cook, who has worked to capture local farm life for more than 30 years. Bins full of seed corn are ready for planting earlier in May at the Bowman farm, north of DeWitt, Iowa. Locally grown sweet corn and other produce is available at the Blossom Farms location near the intersection of 42nd a...

Juganu Closes $23M For Its Innovative LED Lighting Network

Israeli light tech manufacturer, Juganu, a firm developing innovative LED lighting systems, announced last week the completion of a $23 million financing round led by Israeli growth tech capital fund Viola Growth. The funding round includes additional investors like OurCrowd, the Jerusalem-based equity crowdfunding platform and a Mexican investment fund. Founded in 2011 by Eran Ben-Shmuel and Alex Bilchinsky, Juganu is based on a technology capable of changing light composition and features an advanced infrastructure for AI technology. Juganu revolutionizes the installation of technology in public and commercial spaces at a significantly lower cost than other solutions available on the market, the company says. In a strategic collaboration with semiconductor and telecommunications equipment company Qualcomm over the past five years, the company has used the US multinational’s chipsets to combine advanced lighting technology with AI-based learning to solve the technology challenges of smart cities and municipalities. Juganu has registered 40 patents to create a network of wireless grids and lighting fixtures in public spaces, a concept the company refers to as the “Digital World....

MLB: Widow files wrongful death lawsuit against Braves

The widow of a beer tap inventor who died inside a walk-in beer cooler at SunTrust Park, home of the Atlanta Braves, has filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the ballclub. According to the Atlanta Journal Constitution, Angela Keeling filed the lawsuit on Friday in Fulton County State Court. She is seeking unspecified damages in the death of her husband, Marvin Todd Keeling, who was found dead on June 26, 2018, inside a walk-in beer cooler where he was installing beer taps. Keeling’s lawsuit says a faulty door mechanism and lethal carbon dioxide leaks were the primary causes of her husband’s death. According to the lawsuit, Keeling was finalizing the installation of the tap system when the cooler filled with carbon dioxide. The autopsy report said Keeling’s “fall/collapse was very rapid or that he was so disoriented that he was unable to form or act on logical thought processes.” Keeling’s lawyers contend the 48-year-old inventor had no way to get out of the cooler because of a “faulty door release mechanism that was improperly constructed, assembled, maintained and allowed to exist” despite knowledge of its status. In addition to the Braves, the lawsuit also names several con...

Plot twist: Straightening single-molecule conductors improves their performance

A team at Osaka University has created single-molecule nanowires, complete with an insulation layer, up to 10 nanometers in length. When they measured the electrical properties of these nanowires, the researchers found that forcing the ribbon-like chains to be flat significantly improved their conductivity compared with a twisted conformation. The findings may allow for a new generation of inexpensive high-tech devices, including smartphone screens and photovoltaics. googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘div-gpt-ad-1449240174198-2′); }); Carbon-based polymers, which are long molecular chains made of repeating units, can be found everywhere, from the rubber in the soles of your shoes to the proteins that make up your body. We used to think that these molecules could not conduct electricity, but that all changed with the discovery of conducting polymers. These are a small subset of carbon-based molecules that can act like tiny wires owing to their alternating single and double chemical bonds, also called conjugated bonds. Since carbon-based conductors are much easier and cheaper to make and customize than conventional electronics, they have seen rapid adop...

The US government has started to ease its ban on domestic companies doing business with Huawei,

The US government has started to ease its ban on domestic companies doing business with Huawei, stating that some firms will be licensed to supply the Chinese giant. Huawei has been frozen out of the US device and telecoms equipment markets for several years, and earlier this year was effectively blacklisted by Washington on national security grounds.
