The Maastricht Treaty (officially the Treaty on European Union, or EU Treaty for short) was signed in Maastricht on February 7, 1992 and served to establish the European Union. With the signing of the treaty, the member states relinquished part of their sovereignty, the European Parliament was given legislative power and the euro was eventually introduced as a single currency. The Maastricht Treaty has been part of European heritage since 2018.
But with the Brexit . . . .
In the 1970s, the doctor became known for his so-called Heimlich maneuver, a technique that allows you to open the airways of a choking person with abdominal thrusts. The rescuer will stand behind the patient, embrace him at the level of the abdomen, between the breastbone and the navel and release the blocking object from the trachea with a firm upward push.
In nuclear fusion, two or more atomic nuclei are combined into a third heavier nucleus. When atoms of light elements such as hydrogen are fused together, part of the mass is converted into energy. This energy can then be used for power generation. Unlike nuclear fission, fusion does not produce nuclear waste. And it has the added advantage that the required source (hydrogen) is abundant.
However, nuclear fusion faces some challenges that have so far hindered its practical application. The extremely high temperatures required (more than 100 million degrees Celsius) mean that the plasma must be isolated in a magnetic field to prevent the walls of the reactor from melting.
A second major challenge is the turbulence in the reactor, which causes the generated heat to leak away from the plasma.
But development is fast and nuclear fusion has no radioactive waste.
Nanotechnology, or nanotech, is the latest hype in science. In practice, it’s about making and manipulating things between 1 and 100 nanometers. A nanometer is one millionth of a millimeter, one hundred thousand times smaller than the thickness of a human hair.
Extremely small, confirms Prof. Dr. Ing. Dave Blank, director of the MESA + Institute of the University of Twente aka “Mr. Nano “. But the impact of this technology, a science that didn’t even exist before 1975, is many times greater than what we could ever have imagined before then. “Think of pinpoint-sized laboratories. Or even the creation of completely new materials that do not occur in nature. ”
How that works? Everything around us consists of molecules and atoms, they are the building materials of nature. But if we can adjust things at the smallest level, then suddenly completely different laws of nature apply to the ones we are used to.
Take the many applications based on nano that are possible in healthcare alone. For example, to be able to do a blood test where you see immediate results. Or with counterfeit organs on a chip, which mimic our organs and tissues, so that you can test medicines safely. ”
Also special: the nanopil, a device the size of a virus, with which you can very accurately release a medicine at a specific place in the body. For example with chemotherapy, so that you do not have to poison the whole body. “Those particles are then opened with ultrasound. Doctors can see exactly where that medication is on screens, so that you can apply medication much more specifically and effectively. ”
Blank: “By arranging atoms differently, materials acquire different properties. Something can get a different color, become harder or softer or, for example, conduct electricity very well. ”
A Ponzi fraud refers to Charles Ponzi, the man who in 1920 offered bonds that would pay 50% in interest after a month and a half. However, the interest payment came from the deposits of thousands of Americans who invested and then lost their savings.
