This Guy's Machine Gun Shoots Cheese Balls!

YouTuber NightHawkInLight is a pretty crafty dude. His YouTube channel has over 1 million subscribers, all regularly checking in to see what weird but incredibly interesting project he'd recently thrown together.

A few weeks ago, one viewer jokingly requested that he try to craft a machine gun that launches cheese balls. And as of today, that epic request was officially filled!

Using a tub of generic cheese puffs, a leafblower, and some MacGuyver-style fluid dynamic, he was able to develop a gun that could launch these puffs several yards away.

You can check out the whole YouTube, plus a step-by-step tutorial on how to make your own cheese puff gun at home, in the embedded video above.
But in the meantime, I've got a question:

If you could make a novelty machine gun, what would YOU like it to shoot? Or is there another foodie invention you'd prefer?

Personally, I'd like a mini cannon that shoots meatballs. Bombs away, fools!

Problems Faced in Automation in CDM
Standardization of data Data should be standardized before automated sharing. It will lead to a faster collection of trial evidence and better analysis, enhanced transparency, faster start-up times, increasing the predictability of data and processes, and easier reuse of case reports across different studies. Take Clinical Research Training to understand better about on ground Problems faced by the Industry. Interoperability of EHRs for automation Although the use of EHRs has not been optimal, they have yielded great benefits at low costs and less time and presented significant possibilities for research. The collection, organization, exchange, and automation of data depends on the effective use of electronic health records (EHRs). However, EHRs have a history of poor interoperability and insufficient quality control and security of data. The way data is stored in these records often varies across institutions and organizations. Sharing the data becomes a struggle since there is no standard format for EHRs. Learn the best Clinical Research Course. Improvement in AI and automation Artificial intelligence (AI) has great potential to identify eligible patients for clinical trials. However, the reality is quite different from expectations. The major problem has been the development of sophisticated algorithms. Other barriers include the unstructured format of data and how to integrate that data into the clinical workflow of stakeholders. Clinical trial stakeholders can indefinitely benefit from a data exchange network, particularly one established between clinical trial sites and sponsors. The network would collect and analyze data before sharing it with relevant stakeholders, improving overall quality. Sponsors shall be able to share important information with sites, including draft budgets and protocol documents. At the same time, sites shall be able to update sponsors in real-time on impending matters, such as patient registrations. This would ensure an unhindered flow of information through integrated systems. However, sites should remember that not all information can flow freely and should be careful while sharing protocol-specified data with sponsors. EHRs have protected health information (PHI) and non-protocol-specific data, which would put patients’ confidential data at risk if shared.

How refrigerators' technology beneficially evolved?
A few years ago, when I was studying at University; I had to give a presentation on future technologies. While researching the technology I came to know that it will be a total revolution. There was a glimpse that reflected upon me. It enlightened me on the whole. I was fully amazed by its unique features. I saw that gas utilization in the home appliances will be decreased and would be finished to the maximum extent. Stoves would be able to cook the meals without gas; there might be a chance that they won’t need electricity either. There will be a warm glass that could be operated through some alternative energy sources. Then I saw a refrigerator it was collaborating with humans like a robot. But refrigerators are still quite expensive. So, a lot of people prefer to buy a refrigerator on installment. Today I am going to highlight some of the salient features of refrigerators and how they have evolved. My below contents will help you get an overview of this cooling machine. How refrigerators came into our lives? The evolving process of refrigerators Double doors to Smart Refrigerators What is a smart refrigerator? Top brands of smart refrigerators How to buy a smart refrigerator? How refrigerators came into our lives? The first refrigerator was presented for sale in the year 1911. Only the rich Americans were able to purchase it. Other countries were way behind to own it. So, how people were cooling their food before the invention of a fridge? To specifically cover the food with a special form of salt was a routine practice of preserving. We also find the oldest form of the refrigerator in the form of a “Yakhchal”. This was a little house made in the form of a dome. Sometimes, mountains’ ice was used to keep cool the eatables. Or underground water resources and brilliant utilization of wind were adjusted. Hence, clay-made refrigerators came into being. The evolving process of refrigerators The first hit model was made by GE (General Electronics) in the year of 1927. This model sold like a hot cake. Its electric consumption was also quite efficient. It was using only 244 KWHs in a whole year. In 1939, a single cabinet style refrigerator was offering dual functions; a fridge and a freezer simultaneously. As mankind reached the decade of 1950s, a modern form of refrigerators started to hit markets. Now refrigerators had become an indispensable commodity of every house. Kitchens were incomplete if there were no fridges. That was the time when this commodity was still making its mark in the developing countries and continents. For instance, the refrigerator price in Pakistan was still very high at that time. Similarly, a deep freezer price in Pakistan was also not in the range of everyone. The same was happening in almost all of Africa, Asia, and Eastern Europe. Double doors to Smart Refrigerators Let’s jump straight to the 80s. This was the start of a new design for refrigerators. Now manufacturers started to make it sleeker and taller. Now people were wanting to store a large number of dishes and meals in the fridges. Hence, a unique style came into the market. It was a double-door fridge. And it was famous for the term “French Style”. This was also the first time that a water dispenser was engineered in the front door of the fridge. Stainless steel handles also came into the trend. Then we reached towards the modern technologies of fridges. At this stage, manufacturers were looking to make fridges more energy-efficient than ever. What is a smart refrigerator? We have stepped forward to embrace the latest technology refrigerators. And it is a smart fridge indeed. These refrigerators work quite interestingly. To use them is also fun. These refrigerators can be connected to the internet/cloud. Its different features work distinctively. It informs you what is inside the fridge. How much food or drinks have been consumed and how many things are remaining in the fridge. Some smart refrigerators go a step further. They also get connected with your favorite grocery store online. Hence, if milk, butter, eggs, or anything is near to finish, it instantly sends a message to the related shopping store. Hence, you are door delivered the required products. You never feel any need to shop the foodstuffs. The refrigerator does the job on its own. It even sends you an alert if you forget to close the door. Top brands of smart refrigerators Haier, DAWLANCE, and PEL are some of the leading brands of refrigerators. But if you want to buy a smart fridge then I can recommend you to buy LG or Samsung refrigerators. Smart refrigerators offer you a large electronic display. This display comes with a lot of features i.e., yearly calendar, reminders, delicious food recipes, and an additional folder of songs with high-tech speakers. These refrigerators also come with an additional LED screen where you can watch your favorite movies and tv shows. So, I can say the smart fridges have become more than a refrigerator. They have become a friend and companion in the kitchens. How to buy a smart refrigerator? This is the question needed to be answered. It is very difficult for common people to buy a smart fridge. As these are considered luxury products. So, there should be an option to buy a fridge on installment. I feel that everyone should get an opportunity to enjoy the features of the latest technologies. Every product should not be limited to wealthy fellows. Here comes the big role of leasing, financing centers, installment portals, and banks to launch some easy buying programs. So, everyone would able to buy a personal favorite deep-freezer on installment. Sometimes, this factor enrages me. I think it is a negative strategy to keep some products in a privileged range. All people have an equal right to enjoy the modern benefits of technologies. After time-consuming research; I have concluded that buying a fridge on installment is the best way to own it. So, I would suggest you always buy a smart fridge. As they consume less electricity and offer more than old-fashioned fridges. Hence, if you invest heavily in them; you easily save more!
Neuromuscular Junction - How Drugs Affect This Synapse?
The neuromuscular junction is the junction between two smooth muscle fibers enclosed in the nuclei of your muscles, which receive and transmit messages between your brain and other important parts of your body. The Neuromuscular Junction is usually addressed by the term synovial. Synovial refers to a tissue that's generally found in the middle of a muscle fiber. It's a complex structure of dendritic and myofascial junctions. The Neuromuscular Junction includes the median nerve, nerves in the spinal cord, cranial nerve, jugular nerve, median nerve on the top of the skull, the median nerve in the ear, and nerves of various kinds from the scalp to the toes. The essential role of the Neuromuscular Junction: The Neuromuscular Junction has an essential role in transmitting impulses and information from the brain to various parts of our body, which is called the central nervous system (CNS). The Neuromuscular Junction consists of mainly three main structures, which are the median nerve, the spinal nerve, and the nerve trunk. The median nerve passes through the entire body, while the spinal nerve trunk goes down and out of your body, respectively. All the three structures interact with each other and form the basic communication system between your muscles and nervous system. Therefore, they form a sort of matrix through which the information flows. The Neuromuscular Junction comprises mainly two types of synapses. First, there is a pattern of unmyelinated axons, which form a sheath around the myostatin axon and contribute to the strength of muscles. Second, there is a pattern of highly myelinated pyramidal neurons that give rise to the various aspects of myocardiography, echocardiography, and vascular physiology. While my cardiogram records the activity of the heart muscle, the various aspects of vascular physiology describe the function of arteries and veins, such as their size, shape, movement, number of arterial or venous blood supply, rate of flow (the rate of blood flow through the artery) and direction of flow (which is, how the blood flows). level of molecular systems: Neuromuscular junctions can be described as the location at which a particular set of nerves come together to form a particular action or to form a particular synapse. For example, the location of your elbow and shoulder joint where the nerve trunk originates and the location of your spinal cord where the motor neurons come together to form a spinal cord. It is possible to examine your body by an electron microscope, where you can see the locations of all these junctions. Neuromuscular junctions occur at the level of molecular systems (including cell body and protein molecules) and at the level of synaptic terminals. They are essential for transmitting nerve impulses from one part of the body to another. Neuromuscular junctions, in the case of myocardiography, involve the movement of heart muscle cells between myocardial inflow of blood outflow. At myocardial inflow, there is a positive signal, whereas, at inflow, there is a negative signal. Therefore, the muscles contract, the valves open, blood fills the chamber, and it starts pumping. The location of the muscular bundle (the section referred to as the achylima cord) controls the ventricular rate and its regulation of blood pressure. In the case of congenital heart disease, the condition referred to as congenital weakness of muscular contractions at the thymus results in failure of the ventricular muscles to properly contract. myofibrils and myotubes: Neuromuscular junctions are composed of groups of fibers called myofibrils and myotubes. Myofibrils are long thin threads of fibrous material that are found between muscles, while myotubes are short thick threads of a material that are located between muscles. Neuromuscular fibers can be found in clumps, bundles, or rolls. These bundles or rolls of fibers function as conductors (conducting electric current) or conductors (receiving electrical current). In the case of my cardiogram, the fibers form an electrical pathway, and the electrical signals are then transmitted along the fibers to the recording site. The first part of how drugs affect the neuromuscular junction involves the absorption and administration of medications. Oral prescription drugs (OTC) generally enter into the bloodstream by way of the gastrointestinal (GI) tract, dermal, or oral ports. These medications have chemical modification components. Drugs such as antinausea/anorexia drugs, acetaminophen (Tylenol), ibuprofen, and aspirin, are an example of orally ingested drug substances. Neuromuscular Junction is found at the point where two nerve fibers meet, and fibers connect to produce electrical signals. When these fibers contact each other, they become engorged with nerve growth factors (neurons). Drugs like Botox and Ativan, however, are delivered to the neuromuscular junction through injection. Neuromuscular Junction is a delicate juncture; when this junction becomes injured, it is possible that the neurons that produce the electrical signals get destroyed.
How To Create A Secure IoT Network To Guard Your Connected Devices
IoT has created a bridge between the physical world and the Virtual World. With all conviction, we can expect IoT as an indispensable part of our lives. But as the IoT implementations are growing, the security concerns are also growing at the same pace. And Today, being a leading IoT service provider, we are going to share how you can create a secure IoT network that will keep your connected devices as safe as possible. Steps To Create a Secure IoT Network Let me tell you very straight that securing the IoT network doesn’t require a completely new or complex set of ideas and principles. The core lies in the best practices while designing the IoT solution.  As there are many small to big things considerably, We can say IoT security is a multi-faceted effort that requires big moves as well as small adjustments to ensure networks, data, systems, and devices are protected.  What is Security By Design? Security by design is a practice that ensures security as a crucial consideration at all stages of product creation and deployment. Often in the IoT developments led by speed and other priority factors, the security considerations are included late in the design and prototyping phase. That results in security breaches. It’s important to remember that as devices and their firmware get obsolete and error-prone in time, they may become an attractive target of bad cyber actors. Hence, it’s crucial to manage the lifecycle of security devices and cloud spectrum to reduce the attack surface. The sad part is that most of the time, robust and long-term security strategies are overlooked during IoT implementations. Security is not a one-time activity, rather an evolving part of the IoT ecosystem that should support IoT deployments’ lifecycle in: Adding new devices and decommissioning others, Onboarding to new cloud platforms, Running secure software updates, Implementing regulated key renewals, Maintaining large fleets of devices. All these activities require comprehensive management of identities, keys, and tokens. To avoid time-consuming and expensive services in the field, IoT Security lifecycle management solutions must facilitate updates remotely while executing them across large scale device fleets. Now let’s see the Security concerns in two popular forms of IoT: Tips To Secure Consumer IoT Devices Smart speakers, domestic appliances, connected toys, and smart locks are all potentially vulnerable if not properly secured by design and during their expected lifespan.  For example, someone who owns a Google Nest Hub and other Xiaomi Mijia cameras around his home claimed that he received images from other people’s homes, randomly, when he streamed content from his camera to a Google Nest Hub. There are many such examples where the design loopholes have caused many consumers more harm than good. The good news is that ETSI recently announced ETSI TS 103 645, the first worldwide standard for consumer IoT security. This sets a benchmark for how to secure consumer products connected to the internet and aims to promote best practice. Additionally, here we are going to share tips that will help you in designing a secure IoT network for your consumers and smart homes. Know Your Network and The Connected Devices – When we put together several devices over the internet that potentially leaves your entire network vulnerable. It’s common to lose track with an increasing number of equipped devices. Hence it’s essential to know your network — the devices on it and the type of information they’re susceptible to disclosing.  Assess the IoT Devices on Your Network First, know which devices are connected to your network, audit your devices to understand their security posture. While selecting devices check for newer models with stronger security features, etc. Further, before making a purchase, read up to understand how much of a priority, security is, for that brand. Input Strong Passwords to Protect Your Devices and Accounts Use strong and unique passwords that will assist you in securing all your accounts and devices. Get rid off the common passwords like “admin” or “password123.” Make use of a password manager, if needed, to keep track of all your passwords. At the same time ensure that you and your employees don’t use the same passwords across multiple accounts and be sure to change them periodically. Choose a Separate Network for Your Smart Devices Separating networks is a smart way to protect your smart devices in the IoT network. With network segmentation, even if attackers discover a way into your smart devices, they can’t access your business data or sniff on that bank transfer you did from your personal laptop. Reconfigure Your Default Device Settings Usually when we receive our smart devices they are packed with default insecure settings. And things become worse if we do not modify their configurations. As weak default credentials, intrusive features, ports and permissions need to be assessed and reconfigured as per your requirements. Install Firewalls and Other IoT Security Solutions to Identify Vulnerabilities To safeguard your Smart homes and other consumer IoT networks block unauthorized traffic over the wire through firewalls. At the same time run intrusion detection systems/intrusion prevention systems (IDS/IPS) to monitor and analyze network traffic. This is where you can use an automated scanner to uncover security weaknesses within your network infrastructure. Use a scanner to identify open ports and review the network services that are running. Now let’s check out the key steps to protect your enterprise network against modern security threats. Steps To Protect Your Enterprise IoT Network We have seen many manufacturing industries adopting IoT and growing. However many aren’t serious enterprise security, that’s a mistake. Because we have seen that In 2018,  21% of companies reported a data breach or cyberattack due to insecure IoT devices. So do not let that happened with you and follow the steps below to protect your enterprise IoT network: Step 1:  Be alert of the risk As IoT is relatively new as compared to IT, hence some of the threats are newer and not as widely used, and make companies reluctant. But we forget that IoT security is like buying insurance. We think we won’t ever have to use it, but the odds are, we might. So it’s better to realize that with a lot of connected devices in use, we might have vulnerabilities that need to be minimized and fixed. Step 2: Design a Secure network architecture The Ponemon study found that less than 10% of organizations are confident they know about all of the printers, cameras, and building automation systems on their networks that are connected to the Internet. Hence, it’s essential to carefully design your network architecture. And protect your devices from the network, and further protect your network from the devices. Step 3: Observe Your Suppliers and Vendors Attackers are smart today, they may target you through the suppliers and vendors. So do not underestimate the vulnerability that comes along with companies you connect with.  It’s a better practice to include the security practices as part of your vendor risk management process. Step 4: Practice For the Data Breach You must prepare for an IoT data breach the same way you prepare for disasters like fire, earthquake, or other. Make a plan, have a regular drill, and keep the plan updated. It’s good to have regular exercises to test your data-breach preparedness.  How will you tackle the situation If you get breached? you should have a well-documented plan for the same. Step 5:  Control what you can, and learn to live with calculated risk It is important to realize that while you should do everything that you can do, you can’t expect to prevent everything. So learn to live with a calculated risk. For something that’s as crucial as a backdoor into your entire network, which is really what a smart-building management company represents, you really need to keep a close eye on their security practices. Step 6: Start now, and get ready for whatever comes next IoT being an emerging technology can not and should not be removed from our enterprises.Although there is risk that comes with it but like all excellent growth you need to take that risk and better prepare yourself to reduce the chances of mishappening like data breaches and others. You know new devices are coming with each passing days, hackers are becoming more creative, and the risks are getting more profound and devastating. So, Be aware and take proactive steps to secure your IoT network. And if you are looking for any other assistance in IoT services, do not forget to check our IoT services page.
