I urge everyone it read this article about the effects Covid-19 can have on the brain. Up to 50% with Covid-19 have experienced neuroligical problems. Important risks to weigh up when the focus is on opening up the economy.

Indoor Covid Outbreaks & How To Prevent Them

Spanish newspaper El País published a fascinating analysis of three indoor Covid outbreaks and looks at how they could have been avoided. The article suggests mitigation techniques in the relation to outbreaks in a call centre in South Korea and in a restaurant and on a bus in China. Tactics include natural indoor ventilation, zig zagging of employee desks, avoiding background music in restaurants to prevent patrons from raising their voices to talk, and avoiding the recirculation of air.

Muzli Search is a search engine for design inspiration. A neat feature is that for every search result, tt automatically pulls the colour palette and provides an SVG download or link to Muzli colours.


Quantum Entanglement Satellite

Researchers have successfully demonstrated quantum entanglement on a cube satellite. A miniture device placed on the SpooQy-1 cubesat demostrated quantum entanglement between pairs of photons within the tiny 20cm x 10cm satellite. This work follows the Chinese Micius satellite which demostrated quantum teleportation over thousands of kilometers.
