Self-Healing Graphene Holds Promise for Artificial Skin in Future Robots

The study offers a novel solution where a sub-nano sensor uses graphene to sense a crack as soon as it starts nucleation, or after the crack has spread a certain distance. This technology could quickly become viable for use in the next generation of electronics.

Six Ways to Prevent Toenail Fungus

Although fungal nail infections are usually painless, the condition can be unsightly. If you get nail fungus – more common on the toenails than the fingernails – your symptoms could include yellow or brown nails, or nails that lift up from the nail bed or split or crumble. Without treatment, say dermatologists from the American Academy of Dermatology, nail fungus can worsen and make it painful to wear shoes.
