Discover EBRAINS: A look inside Europe’s new platform for the brain

BRUSSELS, BELGIUM, November 30, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — The publication Discover EBRAINS introduces the powerful EBRAINS research infrastructure to the world. EBRAINS has been created by the EU-funded Human Brain Project, and offers an extensive portfolio of brain data, scientific services, digital tools and computing resources for researchers and industry. The paper discusses the transformative impact of EBRAINS for neuroscience, brain medicine, and brain-inspired innovation in Europe.

EBRAINS is an accelerator for European ambitions in multidisciplinary brain research, combining cutting-edge neuroscience, high-performance computing and artificial intelligence. It offers researchers an extensive range of brain data and a digital research environment that connects many of the most advanced European lab facilities, supercomputing centers, clinics and technology hubs in a unique integrated system.

“We are on the cusp of a new era in brain research – unprecedented technologies are put at the service of science, while innovators are taking more and more ideas from neuroscience”, says Pawel Swieboda, CEO of EBRAINS and Director General of the Human Brain Project. "Now we show prospective users what this new infrastructure is all about, the many ways to engage with us on further co-developing it, and how it can help them make their mark in these rapidly growing fields.”

Synergy between neuroscience and technology

Today, high speed computing is changing the game in tackling brain complexity, neurotechnologies are becoming one of the global megatrends in health, and AI-developers are again looking at the brain for inspiration.

“Europe took an early lead in these areas with the Human Brain Project, which sits exactly at the intersection of brain science and computing”, says Katrin Amunts, Scientific Research Director of the HBP. Over the last seven years, the HBP teams, spread across Europe, have built, tested and used the digitally connected research platforms of EBRAINS in a Co-Design approach.

As part of its transitioning into a sustainable infrastructure, EBRAINS has applied for inclusion into the European ESFRI Roadmap, seeking to become a permanent addition to the EU’s research landscape, thereby contributing to accelerate neuroscience applications in industry and medicine.

A look inside (www.ebrains.eu/discover)
EBRAINS’ ambition is to provide the scientific community with an open state-of-the-art cloud-based ecosystem that fosters collaborative brain science and paves the way to ground-breaking discovery.

It offers unique resources like the most comprehensive 3D-atlas of the human brain, a Medical Informatics Platform for hospitals, simulation engines like The Virtual Brain, a neurorobotics platform, and access to supercompers of the European FENIX-network, as well as neuromorphic computers, which are modelled after the brain. A range of tailor-made tools helps scientists find, analyse, distribute, visualize and integrate brain data for their research. All components are available through a single online access point at www.ebrains.eu, and can be linked according to the concrete needs of a project.

Coming up: The HBP Science Case
In January, the publication of the Human Brain Project’s “Science Case”, will follow, describing the interplay of different scientific disciplines with the novel Research Infrastructure, the Human Brain Project’s vision of merging neuroscience, computing & technology in Europe, and the current research foci of the project for its final phase until 2023.

Digital event series
The two back-to-back publications are connected to several digital events, which present both the elements of the infrastructure itself and the current breakthrough research paradigms it enables in the HBP.

Savory Ingredients Market to reach $11,284.0 million in 2027 from $7,204.0 million in 2019

Savory Ingredients Market

Savory Ingredients Market

The food industry has been evolving in terms of innovation to fulfill the consumer demand of savory based innovative food products.

Manufacturers are focusing on key innovation factors such as development of natural based savory ingredients owing to consumer demand. ”

— Nisha Dodeja

PORTLAND, OR, UNITED STATES, November 30, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — According to a new report published by Allied Market Research, titled, “Savory Ingredients Market by Source, Type, and Application: Opportunity Analysis and Industry Forecast, 2020–2027,” the global savory ingredients market size was valued at $7.2 billion in 2019, and is projected to reach $11.2 billion by 2027, growing at a CAGR of 7.70% from 2020 to 2027. In 2019, Asia-Pacific accounted for nearly 38.5% share of the savory ingredients market. The growth in value sales for ingredients is attributable to surge in demand for different savory ingredients, which impart enhanced taste. Thus, increase in willingness of customers for different types of natural tastes in food & beverages is expected to fuel the demand for savory ingredients market.

The food industry has been evolving in terms of innovations and demand. Manufacturers are focusing on key innovations that cater to the requirements of their target consumers. Increase in awareness toward health and wellness has been witnessed among people residing in developed as well as developing countries. This has resulted in increased demand for various types of special savory ingredients made using organic products. Thus, savory ingredients market trends are gaining increased traction among food & beverage manufacturers, which significantly drives the growth of the global market. Emerging economies exhibit high growth potential, , as they are untapped.

Download PDF Sample Report @ https://www.alliedmarketresearch.com/request-sample/2510

With increased demand for organic and natural products, manufacturers are adapting innovative approaches such as reduce costs and increase cost predictability. For instance, manufacturers have replaced common functional savory ingredients such butter, oil, cream, and vegetable pulp to optimize costs, without changing the taste, texture, shelf life, or visual appeal of savory products. In addition, Ingredion Incorporated used starch formulation for manufacturing savory ingredients and improve yield, quality of product, and shelf life. Thus, such innovation are expected to boost the market growth during savory ingredients market analysis.

Non-member nations of the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) comprise more than 80% of the global population; yet consume less than 60% of world’s food consumption. The emerging economies are estimated to constitute a population of more than 60% of today’s global population of the middle class by 2020. Surge in disposable income acts as a major driving force of the global market, for instance, in China, around 3 million households had a disposable income of around $10,000 in 2,000, which increased to 60 million in 2012. This number is expected to exceed 230 million by 2020. Thus, rise in demand from developing economies significantly drives the savory ingredients market growth.

Upsurge in working population has led to high demand for conventional food, packaged food, and ready-to-eat food due to busy & hectic schedule. These foods are designed for ease of consumption such as shelf-stable products, refrigerated or frozen products, and dry mixes, as they require minimal preparation. Furthermore, savory ingredients are flavor enhancers, which alter the flavors of food products during processing to improve the quality and shelf life. In addition, these food additives help in enhancing the aroma, flavor, and taste of food products. Thus, due the benefits associated with savory ingredients, they are increasingly used in ready-to-cook and ready-to-eat food products, which augments the growth of the global savory ingredients market.

Studies have shown the adverse effects of aforementioned chemicals synthesized ingredients such as monosodium glutamate (MSG) lead to obesity and metabolic disorders. Artificial ingredients cause numerous problems, such as dizziness, nervous system depression, chest pain, fatigue, allergies, headaches, brain damage, nausea, and seizures. Some flavors can lead to tumors, genetic defects, and bladder cancer. These factors together hamper the global market growth. Thus, different governments across the globe have set up regulatory guidelines to regulate the flavor market. Such regulations, especially in Europe and North America, have led to sluggish growth of the savory ingredients market forecast.

Vida Blue, the new audiobook by Susie Perez Fernandez

MIAMI, FLORIDA, USA, November 30, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Vida Blue is the recent novel by Susie Perez Fernandez, an author with a new career in romantic literature with a gripping story labeled a romantic thriller by some reviewers.

Unlike her other books, in Vida Blue love and passion are bound by action and adventure, a rare mix that keeps you wanting to know what is next in each riveting chapter. Each page is filled with suspense and excitement; its prose only accelerates the feeling of living an extraordinary adventure along with Ariadne, a strong woman who plays the starring role.

Vida Blue has been received positively by readers close to Perez Fernandez's work, but also by critics who are approaching her books for the first time. In short, they have all agreed on its unpredictable plot, its intriguing characters, and its smooth narrative in tune with the fast-paced action, subtle sensuality and dangerous, intriguing, and exciting scenes play out like a movie. There is no doubt why Vida Blue has been highlighted as one of the best novels of its genre in 2020.

Perez Fernandez is a prolific writer who has recently gone from book format to launch her books to audio format. It is the first time she has heard her characters speak live, which contributes to the exciting atmosphere of the Italian coast, where Ariadne, in the first chapters begins her adventure. Hearing an audio book is, of course, a different experience than having the book in page format. For those who prefer to read, you can purchase Vida Blue in both formats.

It was a pleasure to meet Perez Fernandez, who has brought a new twist to romantic novels. Her novel Via Blue has caused huge excitement in the literature world, so it was nice to put some questions to her.

1. Hi, Susie Perez Fernandez, first, can you introduce yourself to our readers? Hello and thank you for the questions. It is my pleasure to tell you about Vida Blue and I hope what follows in the Q&A will inspire you to read it.

2. You have released a new book called Vida Blue, which is available on Amazon and all good bookstores, can you tell me more about the book? Vida Blue is a suspenseful blend of romance and adventure with vivid and exciting settings. This romance adventure sweeps readers across the globe with a narrative and plot that crosses borders nearly as much as the story itself steers up the heart rate. This is an action romance, something you don't come across often enough in this genre, and the scheming that is drawn out in each chapter will leave you wanting more.

3. Your book is filled with danger, romance, and trauma, we don’t normally come across stories like that unless they are on the big screen, how did you come up with the storyline? I am an avid traveller and came up with the idea for the story while working as a destination wedding planner in Italy’s Amalfi Coast. It was here that the initial idea began for me to write about a love affair that would be any woman’s dream, but at what price? When I thought I knew what was going to happen in the writing process, the story line would take me in another direction. I love romance novels that have a gritty realism.

4. A lot of authors know what the ending will be when they start writing a book, is that the case with you or did you just let the storyline lead the way? I literally had no idea what the ending would be, of course, I wanted it to be gripping and more importantly, I wanted the reader to want more. For me, writing is like a journey, some of it has a road map and some of it is totally off course. Experimenting with a story is fascinating for a writer. I find that though I see the story play in my mind like a movie, I need to allow my characters to speak and show me how the story will develop.

5. Vida Blue has received many positive reviews, with one reviewer calling it an action romance, how do you feel about all the great reviews you have received? Extremely honoured and humbled by the experience. I wrote the book because I had something I wanted to say, and my wish was that everyone that read Vida Blue would find something they could use or experience from the story. I never write for reviews, but I must admit, they help an author stay relevant and for this reason, I appreciate and value each one.

6. Ariadne is a very strong character; did you base the character on anyone you know? Many people have asked if Ariadne is me, but I think every writer leaves a piece of themselves in every story they produce. All the experiences in life are like breadcrumbs that leave a trail. I like writing strong stories about woman, especially those that have a treasure trove of experience. Women in their forties, fifties and beyond. We have a lot to say, and we need to be heard.

7. Is Ariadne someone you would like in your life and does she have any of your attributes? I do not think I am like Ariadne; she is someone I strive to be, my Avatar, the good and the bad parts make her a wonderful protagonist. Perhaps she has my thirst for life and for learning about different cultures. She has a background from Spain as I do, she loves to travel… those are the things we have in common.

Integrity Restoration Explain Restoration from Water and Mold Damage

ORANGE PARK, FLORIDA, USA, November 30, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — When purchasing a brand-new house, you ought to think about getting a mold and mildew evaluation. Mold evaluation is a different procedure from regular housing assessments. The expense will certainly differ depending on the dimension of your home. Exactly how much do mold and mildew evaluation cost on a home? Exactly how do you understand if it is worth it to conduct a mold inspection and screen? There are a few different situations in which you may want a mold examination.

Mold is a fungus, and like all fungi, it thrives in moist locations. Mold spreads by giving off spores, microscopic fragments typically as little as a single cell. Spores float about in the air till they land on a surface area. Mold spores are anywhere, outdoors, in addition to within your residence.

Fortunately, mold spores only develop mold and mildew when they come down on a moist surface. That means that if you can maintain the interior of your home dry, you can avoid having any trouble with mold. The ideal method to prevent decay in your house is to clean up spills, repair service leaks in your roof, plumbing, or HEATING AND COOLING system, and make sure your bathroom and kitchen are correctly airing vent dampness away from the house.

One good idea concerning mold- if you can see it, you have mold in your house. Seeing mold in the cracks and edges of your walls indicates it is growing and spreading out more spores. Remember that mold may also expand in locations you cannot see, such as in your air ducts or between your wall surfaces.

A few scenarios should make you find any mold and mildew issues in your residence—water damage. If your cellar flooded, roofing dripped, or a damaged pipeline splashed water all over the kitchen, you need to inspect for mold. Any place that got damp and was not swiftly dried (within 24 to 2 days) could become infected by mold and mildew.

There is no means to know what sort of water damages may have occurred where you are planning to acquire. The only way to figure out if mold and mildew exist is to do a mold inspection. After a home has been vacant, if a residence has been closed up and empties for months or years, moisture might have built up inside and triggered mold to grow.

After mold removal, if you have experienced the commonly pricey and hard steps to manage a mold issue, routine mold evaluations are a great idea to ensure you get rid of all of it. You see some mold. If you notice some eco-friendly, blue, black, or white stuff expanding in your home, do a mold and mildew examination to see if you locate it all.

If you are investigating mold and mildew, you could discover different solutions and costs that list both mold and mildew examination and mold testing. Mold and mildew examination merely identifies the existence of mold and generally specifies the issue's dimension, typically in square footage. Mold and mildew screening tries to determine what particular sort of mold remains in your residence as well as the number of mold and mildew spores are in the air.

Second, all interior areas have mold and mildew spores that wander in from outdoors, so mold and mildew examinations will usually provide a lengthy checklist of species, a lot of which are not expanding in your home. Third, the EPA has set no standards for an acceptable amount of mold and mildew or mold and mildew spores in a house.

Remember that some mold inspections include mold screening or sampling, specifically in states where it will need regulation. Mold and mildew examination is, essentially, an aesthetic assessment of a house. There are no unique tools involved apart from a great flashlight and devices that are sometimes needed to access restricted areas (like eliminating grates to examine HVAC ducts).

A moisture meter may likewise work in determining if a particular area is wet, specifically after removal. A typical mold and mildew evaluation entails the examiner chatting to the homeowner regarding any locations where they have seen mold or where there have been moisture issues or water damage in the past.

If there is a chance mold and mildew is growing hard to reach the area, the assessor may need to damage a section of drywall or eliminate paneling to obtain a much better look. If he identifies the mold, the inspector will look for the moisture source causing the mold and mildew and talk with the homeowner to establish a remediation plan.

New Toolkit Helps Global Businesses Include More People with Disabilities in the Workplace

Corporate giants choose disability confidence as the 'right thing to do'

It is an important responsibility for us to foster a culture for diverse talent… It is the right thing to do and we also want to lead by example.”

— Sakshi Handa, HR Director of Unilever Bangladesh

HAYWARDS HEATH, WEST SUSSEX, UNITED KINGDOM, November 30, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Corporate giants such as Unilever, Diageo and Safaricom are leading the way to ensure people with disabilities have support and opportunities at work.

Lessons learned from these companies have helped shape new guidelines launched this week to enable CEOs, HR managers and property developers to foster more inclusive workplaces.

The ‘disability toolkit’ was launched this week as part of the UK aid-funded Inclusive Futures programme, in response to a growing demand from business leaders who want people with disabilities to be represented in their workforce, but do not know where to start.

It offers advice for businesses – big and small – to recruit more people with disabilities, ensure workspaces are accessible and support employees with disabilities to achieve their potential.

Experience of working with Unilever, Diageo and Safaricom have contributed to the practical guidelines as well as that of jobseekers, disability rights groups and local businesses in Uganda, Bangladesh, Kenya and Nigeria.

Susan Scott-Parker, Founder of Business Disability International and co-author of the toolkit said: ‘These unique, practical guides are designed to meet the needs and expectations of business because we have learned that making it easier for employers to say ‘YES’ inevitably makes it easier for job seekers with disabilities to find meaningful employment.’

1 billion people are estimated to have a disability around the world, yet employment numbers remain incredibly low across most countries.

The International Labour Organization estimates that as much as 3 to 7 per cent of Gross Domestic Product (GDP) is lost within middle and low-income-countries as people with disabilities are excluded from the job market.

Simon Brown, Inclusive Futures’ Global Technical Lead said: “Employing people with disabilities has clear benefits not only for the people employed, but also for businesses. One estimate suggests that there’s an untapped spending power of $8 trillion waiting for businesses who recognise this.

“But contrary to what people might expect, what we’ve seen is that the financial side has not been the driving force here for these companies – it is the fact they believe hiring inclusively is the right thing to do.”

“The moral argument has really won, and from a Diageo perspective” says Eric Kiniti, Group Corporate Relationships Director at the East African Breweries Ltd, a subsidiary of Diageo. “This week we’re launching our 2030 targets on sustainability and diversity and inclusion is one of the key metrics that we’re looking at.”

Sakshi Handa, Human Resource Director of Unilever Bangladesh, said: ‘It is an important responsibility for us to foster a culture for diverse talent. Going forward, we want to be able to welcome persons of disability. It is the right thing to do and we also want to lead by example in the industry disability and inclusion space.”

As well as releasing the guidelines, Inclusive Futures has worked with companies such as Safaricom to deliver disability confidence training to hundreds of line managers this year. It has also created a “First Shot” scheme to encourage young job seekers with disabilities to apply for vacancies with the company.

The toolkit was launched at an online event was hosted by the International Labour Organization (ILO) and attended by big brands including Coca Cola, Unilever and Safaricom. A panel of speakers including Eric Ngondi, board member of the United Disabled Persons of Kenya, Murteza Khan, CEO of Bangladesh Business & Disability Network and Paul Kasimu, Chief HR Officer at Safaricom discussed how valuable the tools are in helping businesses say ‘yes’ to becoming more disability confident.

“I love storytime,” says Mangal, who is always assigning characters to family members. Princess Aubrey & The Pink Crocodile tells the story of Princess Aubrey using her imagination to bring her stuffed-toy crocodile to life for a day of fun.

Mangal took the task seriously and came up with the title, narrated the story, and had a say in cover design and illustrations. Princess Aubrey & The Pink Crocodile went on sale at over 40,000 global bookstores and online bookstores.

Personal Wellness Zone that Boasts Privacy Over Wearable Trackers

We live in the future. Cardi/o® lets people access health-in-the-home lifestyles founded on a general wellness concept that frees people from being continually tracked by wearable technology.”

— Stephanie Probasco, Director of Marketing, Advanced Telesensors

AUSTIN, TX, UNITED STATES, November 30, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — The world entered the new “touchless” health era this month with the launch of Cardi/o®, a totally touchless heart rate and vitals sensor for home use that doesn’t require the use of a wearable device. The inventor, Advanced Telesensors, Inc. is pleased to see its first product hit the consumer market just in time for the holiday gift buying season. The foundational platform lets 100 million more consumers access health-in-the-home lifestyles founded on a fitness and general wellness concept that frees people from being continually tracked by wearable technology.

Cardi/o® lets health-conscious consumers easily access heart rate / physiology data without a wearable device while enjoying privacy and choice in their own home. Instead of attaching a heart monitor that tracks your every move and needs daily maintenance like charging, reminding, etc., Cardi/o® operates within a “zone” which residents choose to support their daily health and fitness routine. The designated Cardi/o® zone essentially creates the beginnings of a wellness station within their own residence. A 3×3 inch box is mounted to a wall within the zone which actively senses the individual’s physiological data such as pulse rate, breathing rate, stress, and motion intensity, and streams it to the user’s Cardi/o® phone app. For added convenience and larger display options, users can pair Cardi/o® with an Alexa voice-controlled smart device, like Amazon’s Echo or Echo Show products.

Advanced Telesensors CEO, Sajol Ghoshal spearheaded the project for productization and market launch. “We’re excited to see the culmination of a lot of work from various team members, since it was conceived by Caltech scientists, whose unique backgrounds in science and systems engineering enabled this touchless technology.”

Cardi/o® is expected to evolve as new enhancements get added each year to strengthen the base product that is hitting the holiday season now. The inventors say they hope the product's ease of use at a $400 price-point inspires families and individuals to take charge of their personal health. Many health-policy leaders have projected the impactful role this type of personalized in-home approach would play in reducing the nation’s out-of-control health-care costs. The theory is that once individuals take notice of physiological changes as a consequence of their choices in daily living, they begin to play a greater role in their own health. As if on cue, Cardi/o® seeks to prove this theory true by empowering individuals with a simple tool to practice common sense general wellness, and letting an individual’s own gleaned knowledge help to steer them toward a healthier future. The product is available for purchase now at cardio.io.
