What are manufacturing apps?
Industrial workflows are transformed by manufacturing apps into instrumented, data-gathering, digital processes that integrate human, machine, and sensor data to meet business objectives. Manufacturing App Examples and Use Cases The best way to grasp the definition is to contrast manufacturing tools and processes before and after the use of manufacturing apps. Data Collection in Real Time Before , Process Engineers measured an operator's performance with a clipboard and a stopwatch. Individual data is not accessible after a couple of days unless the process engineer types it on a spreadsheet that everyone can access. The process takes time, and the data is always behind the operations. After— With manufacturing apps, each step of your workflow generates data that is captured as defined by those closest to your operations. Data can be used by process and quality engineers to improve workflows, line supervisors to provide targeted feedback to operators, and upper management to get a real-time picture of the shop floor. Workflows in Digital Form Before , operators followed paper-based work instructions. These instructions are difficult to understand, cause delays in the operator's work, and do not help them improve their performance. Furthermore, keeping track of different versions and locating the most recent one can be difficult. This results in a low use of work instructions, which leads to higher defect rates. After , operators create interactive work instructions using manufacturing apps. These instructions are digital and communicate with the tools used by operators during the assembly process. These guided assembly apps enable operators to be more productive and make fewer errors, so they use them on a regular and happy basis. Operators can provide real-time feedback and suggestions for improvement to the instructions, and the app can be instantly updated to turn tribal knowledge into standard operating procedure. Visibility of production Before , you had separate data silos for data from machines, operators, sensors, and other systems. Some data is stored on paper, while others are stored in spreadsheets, SQL databases, or third-party systems. The majority of data is either not captured or is lost. It is difficult, if not impossible, to have a clear, real-time picture of what is going on. After , you can integrate all of your data sources into a unified, real-time view of your process, production line, or factory. Through an analytics engine and 'dashboarding' capability, the data can be easily analysed and visualised. It can also be easily shared with all stakeholders as needed. Reduce Training Complexity Before — Training buddies train new hires and provide support during a period when you have little visibility into their progress. When a new product or process is introduced, everyone must be re-trained, which slows things down. Keeping track of who has completed which training or who possesses which skill is difficult. After, you can develop training manufacturing apps for new hires to train themselves. You can track their progress as they work through the training apps and view their skills. When new processes, tools, or products are introduced to the assembly line, new training modules can be deployed and operators can continue learning on the job. Monitoring of Machines Before — You have legacy machines and possibly some newer, more advanced ones, but they can't communicate quickly with you or each other. They are prone to errors due to clumsy interfaces. Someone must check the machines on a regular basis to ensure that they are operational. Human error is common during the changeover and startup processes. After that, you can connect your machines to your Apps and make them interact with one another. OEE can be calculated automatically and in real time to best suit your business needs. You can create manufacturing apps to act as an interface for legacy machines, as well as apps to assist your team with changeover and maintenance. You can also take advantage of the Industrial IoT by connecting your tools, sensors, and machines to your apps. These are just a few examples of how manufacturing apps are changing the way businesses operate. You should now have a better understanding of what manufacturing apps and marketplace App are and how they can improve your operations.
HOW TO REMOVE STRETCH MARKS ON THE STOMACH?
Are you depressed due to your ugly stretch marks on the stomach? Are you a teenager having these tiger strips? Finding ways to remove your stretch marks after pregnancy? Stretch marks due to loss of weight? Will exercise create stretch marks? Learn more. Stretch marks on the stomach are not because of any underlying diseases or disorders. We wouldn’t be hurt. But because it detracts from their appearance, individuals, particularly women or single girls, feel terrible about it. They want their skin to be flawless, and in the worst-case scenario, they may become depressed over it. What are the causes of stretch marks on the stomach? 1. Puberty:  Due to the rapid growth that occurs throughout puberty, lines or streaks may emerge on the skin.  2. Obesity: Under the epidermis, there are elastic fibers that allow the body to enlarge as it grows. Stretch marks appear on the skin when growth increases and the elastic fibers begin to break. As there is a rapid expansion of skin in obese persons they are more prone to these stretch marks. Simple yet compelling detox drinks to melt your belly fat like wax 3. Heredity:  Your genes play a significant role in determining your nature, height, color, and skin texture. You may develop stretch marks if your mother developed them on her stomach while carrying you. Stretch marks on a person’s body are also provoked by heredity.  4. Exercise: Bodybuilders follow stringent and rigorous workout regimens, which cause the growth of their muscles in places like the thighs and biceps to grow quickly. It would not affect the stomach as no one will try to develop their stomach with exercises. 5. Sudden weight loss or gain:  Stretch marks can develop as a result of rapid weight gain, and the same is true of rapid weight loss. Stretch marks and weight reduction do go hand in hand. This is because when weight is dropped rapidly, it tends to lose its natural flexibility, which puts stress on the skin from the rapid weight reduction.  6. Pregnancy: The skin extends in a variety of ways throughout pregnancy to make room for the developing baby. After this stretching, the skin doesn’t return to its original shape and may even scar.  7. Cushing syndrome:  When your body consistently produces too much cortisol, Cushing syndrome develops. Taking oral corticosteroid medicine may cause this. Alternatively, your body could make too much cortisol.  Because cortisol activity has already made the skin thin and fragile, the buildup of fat brought on by Cushing’s disease stretches the skin, causing red-purple lines. 8. Usage of corticosteroids: Stretch marks can develop because corticosteroid creams, lotions, and pills make it harder for your skin to stretch.  How to remove stretch marks on the stomach naturally? https://www.friendlyyours.com/how-to-remove-stretch-marks-on-the-stomach/ #stretch marks #remove stretch marks #teenage stretch marks #pregnancy stretch marks #exercise stretch marks #weight loss stretch marks

Some people may need to go see a doctor to get them cleared up, but most cases can be taken care of with a little treatment. Learn how to get rid of pimples on your armpit fast with these simple and easy tips. TABLE OF CONTENTS Introduction: How to get rid of a pimple on your armpit Causes of armpit pimples Treatment options for armpit pimples Home remedies for getting rid of an armpit pimple Prevention tips for avoiding armpit pimples Conclusion INTRODUCTION: HOW TO GET RID OF A PIMPLE ON YOUR ARMPIT? Pimples are embarrassing but can be easily treated with over-the-counter products. However, sometimes they form on areas other than the face.  Pimples on the armpit are particularly common and can be caused by a variety of factors. They’re caused by a combination of sweat, sebum, and bacteria. And also if you’ve got a pimple on your armpit, it’s not the end of the world. There are a few things you can do to get rid of it yourself, without going to the doctor.  While they might not seem like a big deal, if left untreated, pimples on the armpit can lead to infection. There are many ways to get rid of a pimple on your armpit. You can use over-the-counter products, or you can visit a dermatologist.  You can also use home remedies, such as applying a hot compress or using a topical cream. CAUSES OF ARMPIT PIMPLES Armpit pimples are common and can be caused by a number of factors. Armpit pimples are common and usually harmless, but they can be a sign of more serious skin problems.  Some people are more prone to them, while others get them more often depending on the type of skin they have. Here are some of the most common causes:  1. ACNE Acne is a common skin disorder that affects around one-in-five people. It’s caused by an overproduction of oils and secretions in the skin.  Acne can cause pimples, redness, and dryness. There are several types of acne, including blackheads, whiteheads, and pimples.  Acne can be treated with medications, topical treatments, or surgery. 2. HORMONAL CHANGES There are many changes that occur in women during their reproductive years.  These changes can be caused by hormones, which are chemicals that are released by the body to regulate various functions.  Hormones can have a significant impact on a woman’s mood, energy level, memory, and overall well-being. 3. POOR HYGIENE PRACTICES Poor hygiene practices can lead to several health problems, including MRSA and other types of infections.  It is important for people to take care of their hygiene habits to avoid these problems.  Some tips for good hygiene include washing your hands often, using antibacterial soap, and avoiding contact with sick people. 4. EXCESSIVE SWEATING Sweating is an essential body function that helps regulate the body’s temperature. However, when sweating becomes excessive, it can lead to a number of health problems.  It can cause skin irritation and decreased hygiene, as well as increase the risk of developing heatstroke.  In extreme cases, excessive sweating can be a sign of a medical condition, such as hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating). 5. TRAPPED SWEAT AND BACTERIA Sweat is a natural body fluid that helps regulate body temperature. However, sweat can also be a breeding ground for bacteria.  When sweat accumulates on the skin, it can cause body odor. In extreme cases, sweat can also lead to infection.  Trapped sweat and bacteria can be difficult to remove and can cause discomfort. 6. USING AN ANTIPERSPIRANT Many people use antiperspirants to try and reduce sweat production. The problem is that most antiperspirants contain chemicals that can be harmful.  Also using an antiperspirant can cause pimples. Pimples are caused when hair and oil glands become clogged together.  The blockage causes the skin to overproduce oil, which leads to the formation of pimples.  TREATMENT OPTIONS FOR ARMPIT PIMPLES Armpit pimples are a common problem that can be difficult to treat. There are a variety of treatments that can be used, depending on the severity of the pimple.  If you have an armpit pimple, there are several treatment options available. You can use over-the-counter products or go see a doctor.  Come, let's dive into it home remedies for boils under armpits, how to get rid of boil under the armpit, boil under armpit home remedy, boil under the armpit, abscess under the armpit, boil in the armpit with no head, armpit abscess, carbuncle armpit, boil in my armpit, natural remedies for boils under the armpit, armpit boil treatment, boil on armpit home remedy, armpit boil removal, remedy for boil under armpit, recurring boils under armpit, painful boil under armpit, what causes a boil in the armpit, boils,cysts
Prolectin-M: First Oral Antiviral Class of Drug to Block SARS-CoV-2 Entry
In order to truly grasp the magnitude of the finding in this latest journal article about blocking SARS-CoV-2 entry, the audience needs to first understand the mechanism of action (MOA) of the different types of antivirals. The classic definition of an antiviral is a drug that interferes with the replication process of the virus once it has entered the host cell. All antiviral drugs like Paxlovid, Molnupiravir, Remdesivir, Bemnifosbuvir, Bequinar, Tollovir, and Tempol ultimately interfere with the replication process inside the cell at least via one mechanism. The other school of thought is to keep the virus outside the cell and prevent it from entering. This subset of antiviral drugs is called an entry inhibitor. All viruses need help getting inside a host cell and what viruses can do is actually trick the cell into opening up the door to let them in. The primary entry receptor in SARS-CoV-2 is the ACE2 receptor along with TMPRSS as an essential primer. The idea behind entry inhibitors is to block the cellular receptors making docking with the cell impossible. Inhibitors of SARS-CoV-2 Entry: Current and Future Opportunities Another way to stop cellular entry is to simply bind with the spike protein. This is actually the primary function of neutralizing antibodies. Antibody formation is the immune system’s typical response to viral or bacterial infection that prevents cellular entry. Monoclonal antibodies from Regeneron, Eli Lilly, AstraZeneca, and GSK/Vir Biotechnology were developed to attach to the tip of the spike protein. Not only did these monoclonal antibodies prevent the virus from entering the cell, but it also marked the viral particle for destruction by the immune systems phagocytes. Monoclonal antibodies are not only expensive to produce, but also very vulnerable to viral mutations leading to immune escape whereby the antibody might be able to attach to the virus but it cannot neutralize it and prevent cellular entry. With the advent of the latest BA.5 variant, the utility of the vaccines to neutralize infection is over based on a recent NEJM article. Vaccinated, unvaccinated, and people with immunity from prior infection are all vulnerable to the latest BA.5 variant which is now comprising 65% of infections in the United States. CDC Variant Proportions ProLectin-M (PL-M) mimics the functionality of an antibody, but behaves in a very different manner. It clearly interferes with the cellular entry as this peer reviewed journal concluded. The prevailing theory is that the molecule binds in some fashion to a conserved region on the spike protein commonly referred to as the galectin fold which is a concave region located on the side of the spike protein that mimics the carbohydrate recognition domain (CRD) of a galectin, particularly galectin-3. Additional tests would be needed to elucidate the MOA with respect to where and how it binds, but this journal article demonstrates that glycans which are a crucial part of viral entry could be disrupted with a galectin antagonist. In general, when attempting to elucidate the MOA of a drug, most atomic-level tests conducted are proximity tests that simply tell if the molecules are close. For example, in most cases, the tests would measure the change in color when two molecules get close. Its a proximity indicator to help elucidate the MOA via figuring out what molecules bind to each other, but its not really to the level of proof of a smoking gun. The significance of using Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) spectroscopy is that this methodology, actually pioneered by Dr. David Platt, answers the question of where a molecule binds and how tightly it binds. The conclusion that Prolectin-M binds strongly to Galectin-3 at a micro molar level is supported by NMR spectroscopy should not be taken lightly. The graphic that shows the shifts is difficult to understand for those not versed in the science. There are blue and red contour lines. The blue peaks contour lines represent Galectin-3 and the red peak contour lines represent PL-M. Ideal binding isn’t represented by alignment of the peaks but rather by a combination of changes in contour density and a longitudinal shift in the peaks. These contours tell where the binds are happening and shifts indicate the strength of the binding, but it is more complicated and must be analyed in conjunction with the chemical shift map. The overall conclusion is that “PL-M binds specifically to Gal-3 in the micromolar range” leaving little doubt that PL-M is an oral Galectin-3 inhibitor. Another highlight of the journal article is a toxicity study that revealed there were no-toxic side effects in the vero cells when PL-M was administered. An interesting anecdote is that PL-M actually increased the cell viability. This is not a surprise given PL-M’s use in clinical trials showed no safety signals and that other galectin inhibitors have shown positive effects for the host cells in inflammatory diseases. The next highlight were tests using two different protocols that showed that PL-M was able to effect a 99% or 2 Log viral load reduction in viral RNA copies. One protocol (Protocol 1) let the virus multiply in the cell culture before adding PL-M, measuring viral reduction (red line going up is good); the other protocol (Protocol 2) added the virus to the cell culture with PL-M and measured viral presence (red line going down is good). The molecule also showed increasing concentrations of the drug correlated to increasing levels of viral reduction. The viral mutations have seemed to evolve with increasing viral loads which translates to increasing infectivity. Given the toxicity profile (or lack thereof), greater amounts of PL-M could be employed to combat any future increase in infectivity of the virus. What is so significant about this journal article is that this is the first time in the new emerging field of Glyco-virology science that an optimized complex carbohydrate chemical structure was used to block the viral entry to cells. In essence, PL-M was able to achieve blockage of the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus by interfering with the viral entry mechanism into host cells. This research by itself is groundbreaking, but when looking at the big picture all this journal article did is elucidate findings in the preliminary clinical data results from BioXyTran’s first peer-reviewed journal article using PL-M, whereby these human clinical trial results showed elimination of viral load to undetectable levels within a few days (p<0.029). The power of galectin inhibition on viruses is unmistakable. Clinical research is currently in development, but it is worth reiterating that PL-M was able to achieve undetectable viral load in a few days. It’s hard to ignore the comparison to Paxlovid which required 20 days to get 30% of the patient population to undetectable levels. The R-naught (R0) index is a measure of contagion whereby anything under 1.0 will eventually fizzle out and anything over 1.0 represents the number of infections that would be spread by one person. Given R0 of BA.5 is currently sitting a 18.6 and similar to measles it might be time for a shift in policy that starts looking at ways to control contagion instead of hospitalization. For comparison purposes the original Wuhan strain had an R-naught of 3.3. At the crux of the debate, the issue can be distilled down to which is better; eliminating contagion in 3 days or eliminating 30% of contagion in 20 days using Paxlovid, the most effective drug in the COVID-19 arsenal. This journal article represents a major breakthrough in the potential treatment of COVID-19 using a novel antiviral MOA. There is clear evidence that PL-M could be classified an an entry inhibitor which is a subset of antiviral. Drugs capable of binding to a conserved region of the spike protein should be able to block entry of any new variant. Reducing infectivity of the virus using a non-toxic drug may have great value in turning the pandemic into an endemic disease. Prolectin-M is an orally administered experimental new drug candidate that targets the Carbohydrate Binding Domain portion on the SARS-CoV-2. As promising as the theory is discussed in the journal article, readers should be aware that ProLectin-M is not currently approved to prevent, treat, or cure any disease.
