"Why cheat yourself out of revenues and profits? The real culprit is not capturing actual time as the work is done. Waiting to record work for hours or days – it’s too easy to forget five minutes, 10 minutes or 15 minutes of work done for a client. Of course, there are other benefits to immediate time recording too, like have a FULL set of notes and expenses ….Tracktive enables this and a lot more"

Marathon Span: World''s Longest Sea Bridge Opens

China opened the world''s longest bridge over water on Thursday. The Jiaozhou Bay bridge is 26.4 miles long, according to Guinness World Records. It links China''s eastern port city of Qingdao to Huangdao island. State-run CCTV said the 110-foot-wide bridge cost more than 10 billion yuan ($1.5 billion). However, the Xinhua news agency put the cost at $2.3 billion and Britain''s Telegraph newspaper reported its price tag totalled more than $8.8 billion. CCTV said it passed construction appraisals on Monday. The bridge and an associated undersea tunnel opened to traffic on Thursday. The bridge, which is supported by more than 5,000 pillars, took more than four years to build. According to the Guinness World Records, the previous longest bridge over water was the Lake Pontchartrain Causeway in Louisiana. The Chinese bridge is more than 2.5 miles longer. "The earthquake- and typhoon-proof bridge ... is designed to withstand the impact of a 300,000-ton vessel," Guinness said.

Student-designed Device Could Make Dialysis Safer and Easier

There are approximately 1.5 million people worldwide who require regular hemodialysis treatments, due to the fact that their kidneys are no longer able to clean their blood. Clinicians generally reuse the same access point on each patient''s body, for routing their bloodstream to the dialysis machine. Unfortunately, over time this can cause infections, blood clots or narrowing of the arteries at that access point. This can result in the need for a blood-vessel-opening procedure, or sometimes even in death. Now, however, a group of five biomedical engineering graduate students from Johns Hopkins University have created an implantable device, that could act as a safe, easy access point for dialysis.

Scavenging Ambient Electromagnetic Energy to Power Small Electronic Devices

As you sit there reading this story you''re surrounded by electromagnetic energy transmitted from sources such as radio and television transmitters, mobile phone networks and satellite communications systems. Researchers from the Georgia Institute of Technology have created a device that is able to scavenge this ambient energy so it can be used to power small electronic devices such as networks of wireless sensors, microprocessors and communications chips.

''New Metal Type'' at Earth''s Core

Under extreme pressures and temperatures, one of the main metals of the Earth''s interior has exhibited a never-before-seen transition. Iron oxide was subjected to conditions similar to those at the depth where the Earth''s innermost two layers meet. At 1,650C and 690,000 times sea-level pressure, the metal changed the degree to which it conducted electricity. But, as the team outlined in Physical Review Letters, the metal''s structure was surprisingly unchanged.
