Petrol from Tissue Paper

Petrol made from Tissue paper

Petroleum is basically a very necessary product in this century and is used for many purposes, it is not only used as a fuel but in making medicines, plastics and various other products which we make use of in our daily life.

Tissue Paper
Now talking about that whether petrol can be made from tissue paper might be surprising but yes now it is possible to make petrol from tissue paper, not exactly tissue paper but by using tissue paper waste we can now make petrol.  Petrol Is a very important fuel without which technological advances might be stopped but now a girl in Pakistan did her thesis  of in making petrol (bioethanol to be more specific) from tissue paper waste and she turned out to be successful.

The bioethanol which she produced can be used in car engines and thus can be used as an alternative. Bioethanol is better than petrol because it is an environment friendly fuel which means that less pollutants would be released into the environment, according to her when bioethanol is used about 80%-90% less greenhouse gases are released into the environment thus it would be an ideal fuel since it would not prove that much harmful to the environment.

According to her 150 ml of petrol (bioethanol) can be made from using 1 kg of tissue paper waste. Which means that huge quantities could be made if the manufacturing of petrol from tissue paper waste is done at a large scale.

Do you think that it is better to use petrol made from tissue paper rather than crude oil?

Health and Technology

Technology and Health (Benefits of Technology) 

You might have noticed that technology is benefiting our health but how is it benefiting our health? Read the full article and you will find out that what good (virtuous) effects technology has on health.
The first thing is the internet factor, research has shown that more than 60% of people search health related things on the internet now this tells us why there are a lot of health sites, people do not only use it to search things like how to lose weight or how to gain muscles since these are very common but now medicines and health care products are being purchased through online stores and people are even able to solve their health related problems online by interacting with doctors who also now can be found on the internet that means it is reducing the need to go physically to a hospital to get a simple checkup as it can be if not entirely but still can be done to an extent online, check this life saving product which can be now used at homes :
Now coming on the next thing which has its own importance and which shows a major role in saving millions of lives and giving people more chances to survive, the advanced medical equipment and machines such as those used treat brain tumors, gamma knife surgery, heart pace makers and many more. Let’s not forget that without these medical appliances diseases would have been more severe to dealt with. So this is one major way in which technology is lending us a hand to stay healthy.
Next item which we can highlight in this article is the mobile technology which has improved to a great extent making communications cheaper and easily accessible that has also laid a new gateway to solving health problems just from simple touch on phone which means that if we can access doctors from anywhere in the world and get in touch with them although this might not be needed that much but still contacting doctors even in the same city at any hour of the day when we might have some problem regarding our health we can solve it without having to wait. So as communication gap has been over-come through technology it serves as a health service. Not only this technology gives doctors a better chance to specialize in their fields as well.

Apart from this we are able to access information about different diseases and get to know more about them, it helps us in taking precautionary measures which proves helpful to us. Moreover medical trends of different diseases are also taken in note by search engines such as Google which are helpful during research and possibly show how the success ratio by which a disease is controlled.

Wearable Technology MC10 Biostamp

Wearable Technology : MC10 Biostamp

Mc10 Stamp (source :
Well first of all coming to what Mc10 Biostamp is actually, to put it in a simple manner Mc10 Biostamp is a very thin electronic sheet which is just like a sticker that can be laminated or put onto our skin. It is somewhat like a bandage which can be put onto our skin but its purpose is a little bit different that is, it is used to monitor rather than to be put onto a wound for healing. This is used to monitor our psychological data which includes our heart rate, the temperature of our body, the thing is that we can use this data to track multiple disorders one example can be like heart failure. Mc10 Biostamp is a cheap (not sure about the actual price)but a good quality monitoring system which we can use by remaining in the comfort of our home which means that we might not even need to go to the hospital for this purpose and we can simple make use of it right at our own place. The best thing about it is that it enables family members to keep a check onto let’s say a patient in their house so definitely it is a useful product especially for those who do not want to stay in the hospital for long time.

However it can be still used by doctors also to treat their patients, an added benefit of Mc10 Biostamp is that it can be used to monitor babies heart beats as well even though they seem to have soft skin but this work completely fine for them. 
Now coming onto directly how it works, it works rather like a key logger since the Biostamp sends data through an app to the user and thus the user is able to easily monitor his/her own or of someone else’s health remotely. 

The Mc10 Biostamp is going to be further worked on to take it to another level where it could be used as a permanent implantation inside the human body and other parts of the body where it cannot be used till now for example work is being done onto it to make it such a product which can replace the heart pace makers.
