Funds for ‘artificial muscle’ research at Malta University

Date: Mon, 22 May 2017 20:40:03 +0200
Ruben Gatt. Photo: Matthew Mirabelli New research at the University will look into ways of creating ‘artificial muscle’ that can imitate precise human gestures and even lift heavy objects. The research could eventually give some answers to the challenge of developing robots with functions that emulate human motion. Following “a lot more research”, it could also come in handy during the development of lifelike prosthetics, Ruben Gatt, from the Metamaterials Unit, Faculty of Science, told this newspaper. At present, prosthetic limbs are limited to a number of movements. Dr Gatt’s research proposal, called ‘Smart muscles using paramagnetic nanorods and soft electromagnetic systems’, is one of four that were granted €60,000 by the University to be used over two years in a pilot programme. The University of Malta has awarded a total of €240,000 to cover expenses for research assistants, data gathering and surveys, software and conferences, among others. In all, 108 applications were received, and each one from four themes – biomedical and life sciences, engineering and ICT, arts and social sciences and basic natural sciences – received funds. In the latter category, Dr Gatt’s research will attempt to design a novel way... >

Watch: Muscat dismisses Godfrey Farrugia warnings on embryo freezing leading to abortion

Date: Mon, 22 May 2017 20:06:00 +0200
Eleven babies were born through IVF procedures last week alone, Prime Minister Joseph Muscat said this evening, calling for politicians to leave the matter to medical experts. Speaking at a Labour campaign event in Mġarr, Dr Muscat dismissed as “scaremongering” claims by Partit Demokratiku candidate and former Labour whip, Godfrey Farrugia that the proposed introduction of embryo freezing would pave the way for abortion. “Embryo freezing is already in our law, and allowed whenever specialists deem it necessary,” Dr Muscat said. “What we need to do is give more discretion to specialists to make that decision. Specialists say the law unduly binds our hands when we could be helping so many more people.” The Prime Minister insisted that IVF treatment should be open to gay couples, arguing that it was “anachronistic” to discriminate against people on the basis of sexuality with full marriage equality now on the cards. Answering wide-ranging questions by model Tiffany Pisani, Dr Muscat also highlighted divisions between PN leader Simon Busuttil and PD leader Marlene Pullicino over spring hunting and the construction of a motorsports track.

Watch: Busuttil: What happened in Marsascala was the result of incompetence

Date: Mon, 22 May 2017 19:44:00 +0200
Nationalist Party leader Simon Busuttil this evening expressed solidarity with the people of Marsascala after the waste recycling plant fire which produces a column of black toxic smoke. Dr Busuttil urged the authorities to ensure that the people's health came first. He said, however, that what happened today was no coincidence but the result of gross incompetence by people who for the past four years were interested in making money from corruption rather than doing what was most important.  Dr Busuttil was speaking in Gzira, where he promised that the Nationalist Party would not take the 10th district for granted. He also revealed how a financial practitioner had told him how foreign investors had put off potential investment of €40m in Malta, preferring to see how Malta would vote on June 3. Should Malta not clear its name, they would go elsewhere. Dr Busuttil said the government was taking 'desperate' measures to stay in power, including lies. At the Education Ministry, there had been a 'shower of gifts' where part-timers were given full-time jobs, those with definite contracts were given indefinite contracts and practically everyone was given a promotion. A PN government... >
