St. Ives Apricot Scrub sued for causing skin damage

St. Ives Apricot Scrub, one of the world’s most popular facial scrubs, has been slapped with a lawsuit that alleges the product can cause k\skin damage.

The suit has been filed by plaintiffs Sarah Basile and Kaylee Browning, who are seeking $5 million from Unilever, the parent company of St. Ives. It may become a class-action suit as more people may join the legal battle.

The plaintiffs claim that the inclusion of crushed walnut shells in the company’s facial scrubs makes the exfoliator totally unsuitable to use on face.

Scientists to add ‘leap second’ to universal clock on Dec. 31

Scientists to add ‘leap second’ to universal clock on Dec. 31

The year 2016 will last a little longer as scientists are going to add an additional “leap second” to the universal clock as an adjustment to keep time in sync with Earth’s rotation relative to the Sun.

Earth is quite massive, but it still “brakes” due to ocean tides. The braking action of ocean tides decelerates the planet. Scientists have estimated that Earth decelerates 2 milliseconds per day per century, which results in slowing of our planet’s rotation as compared with atomic clocks.

Researchers create nanometer-scale wires using diamondoids

A team of researchers from Stanford University and the U.S. Department of Energy’s SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory claimed to have created the thinnest possible electrical wires using the smallest possible bits of diamond called diamondoids.

The nanometer-scale wires created using diamondoids are merely three atoms wide, and the researchers are confident that such wires can be used for a wide range of applications, including fabrics that generate electricity and superconducting materials capable of conducting electricity without any loss.
