Aromajoin's digital scent hackathon successfully featured the world's first long-distance, scent-broadcasting experience

Hackaroma Finalists

On June 19th, 2020, Japanese startup Aromajoin hosted the final pitch event of 'Hackaroma,' the company's and the world's first digital scent hackathon.

Broadcasting scent over the internet is an amazing feature. We plan to make it an official function of Aroma Shooter this Fall.”

— Chu Bao Trung – Aromajoin's Software Engineering Manager

KYOTO, JAPAN, August 8, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Japanese startup Aromajoin hosted the final pitch event of 'Hackaroma,' the company's and the world's first digital scent hackathon. Aromajoin live-streamed pitches via Zoom, where each participant demonstrated their scent projects with an Aroma Shooter, Aromajoin's own digital scent device, and a set of 6 aroma cartridges. Before each demo, viewing participants prepared their devices such that every Aroma Shooter contained the same set of matching aromas. During a demo, whenever a speaker triggered their scent cartridges, the same combination of cartridges were emitted through the devices of the viewers. In this way, Hackaroma finalists broadcasted scent over the Internet for the first time ever in real-time.

Six finalists from all over the world participated in the event. Three in Japan, one in Australia, one in Sweden, and the last in Colombia. ‘AromaDraw’, an online multiplayer game, took first place. In ‘AromaDraw,’ one player draws a picture of a common object, while an AI engine evaluates their drawing and diffuses smells through the Aroma Shooters of all other players. After smelling, players are asked to guess the subject of the drawing and assigned scores based on each person's ability to make correct judgements. Other interesting projects included using scent to help people toggle instantly between working and relaxing states of mind, controlling scent diffusion using hand gestures, an AR-based scent-matching game, a multi-sensory culinary menu, and a fantasy RPG.

Aromajoin, ecstatic about reactions to the event, intends to sponsor Hackaroma annually. The company expects future hackathons to build upon the growing functionality of the Aroma Shooter and its software.

The matte black version of the Aroma Shooter is now available at half price, USD $498, during Aromajoin's ‘Scent For All’ campaign, which ends August 31st, 2020: https://www.aromajoin.com/scent-for-all

The Aroma Shooter is a 6-chamber aroma emitter that completely abandons liquid media (no vapor, nor mist, nor steam). Based on Aromajoin's proprietary solid-state fragrance material, the device simply transports scented air on command, making it nearly impossible for odors to mix together unintentionally, even as scents change at high speeds. The Aroma Shooter gives creative people the means to activate and transition discrete (or blended) scents as smoothly as visual content on a screen or sound through a speaker.

Aromajoin's mission is to change the world with aroma communication. In practical terms, the startup is pioneering development of a true, end-to-end digital scent infrastructure, imagining a future where scent information travels as seamlessly as text, audio, and video.

About Aromajoin Corporation: Founded in 2012 in Kyoto, Japan, Aromajoin Corporation produces the world's most advanced aroma delivery systems, serving the needs of over 100 enterprise clients in retail, cosmetics, F&F production, entertainment, VR, and neuroscience.

Truth Decay: What It Is and What This Political Scientist Is Doing About It

SUWANEE, GEORGIA, UNITED STATES, August 7, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Recently, the podcast Polititeen had Dr. Jennifer Kavanagh, a senior political scientist at the RAND Corporation, as a guest to discuss truth decay, or the diminishing reliance on facts and analysis in U.S. political and civil discourse.

Dr. Kavanagh is one of the top experts on this subject, and in addition to her research on U.S. military interventions for RAND, she currently heads the organization’s Countering Truth Decay Initiative, which works to truly define the major driving forces behind truth decay today, and propose research-based solutions

On Polititeen, Dr. Kavanagh spoke with teen hosts Varoon Kodithala and Damian Galvan about her work and some of the approaches to truth decay that she and her colleagues are exploring.

One of the first topics the hosts asked their guest about surrounded careers in political science. Dr. Kavanagh described her own career trajectory, which included taking some time off to work after she graduated college with a degree in political science.

Some of that time was spent working at RAND doing research, and this is part of what influenced her to pursue a doctorate in political science.

Today, Dr. Kavanagh spends her time conducting policy research that can be used to make policy recommendations.

Of course, contemporary truth decay within major information sources has produced a vacuum for reliable information that’s directly chipped at her ability to make recommendations that are actually trusted and put into practice. One of the most significant results of truth decay is that Americans no longer have a single, shared set of facts. Instead, with everyone getting their news from different sources — many of which have different agendas — objective, undeniable facts have become harder to pin down than ever.

“It’s hard to tackle major issues like coronavirus, climate change, or immigration if we don’t have a shared set of facts,” Dr. Kavanagh said. “Without that shared set of facts, it’s hard for policymakers to talk about tradeoffs, policy options. These big issues like homelessness or immigration—they’re not going to be solved in two or four or eight years. So it’s critical that we have one set of shared facts that last beyond one administration.”

The hosts also asked Dr. Kavanagh about potential solutions to the problem of truth decay, including methods that some social media platforms have started using, like flagging false or misleading information.

Dr. Kavanagh supported those measures as long as they’re being used responsibly. “Information that is objectively false—we should be able to flag that information in a way that does not infringe on free speech,” she says. “It gets a little tougher when we’re talking about information that’s presented out of context, or in a misleading way. Maybe it tells a story that’s incomplete, or that leads people to the wrong conclusion. Perhaps we label that as misleading, or provide a link to additional information.”

She also emphasized the importance of protecting free speech, while finding a way to provide some kind of governance for what is essentially a Wild West social media sphere.

“We don’t want to infringe on free speech. It’s one of the things that sets us apart even from Europe,” Dr. Kavanagh said. “But at the same time, the current media environment—especially social media—has no guard rails and no governance mechanisms. It's different than television, radio, and newspapers. All the other ways in which we consume information have governance structures—not censorship, not restrictions on free speech, but governance that helps to manage the information space. It’s worth having a discussion on what those governance mechanisms would look like.”

To end the podcast, Kodithala asked a question that has become a Polititeen staple since the inception of the podcast. “What is one quote, one saying, or one phrase that you would say to young voters — young minds who are watching our podcast today?” Dr. Kavanagh responded by posing an important question to listeners.

“Voting is the most powerful tool that we have for change,” Dr. Kavanagh said. “You may not always get your way — that’s part of a democracy is that sometimes, you know, the majority chooses something different. But, if we’re not participating, then are we really living in a democracy?” It’s a question that’s worth all of our consideration.

Kevin McDonald Novato reveals continued importance of Bay Area wildlife conservation

NOVATO, CA, UNITED STATES, August 7, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Educator and conservationist Kevin McDonald Novato opens up about the critical importance of local wildlife conservation.

From preserving unique natural habitats to helping to curb pollution, wildlife conservation has long been a passion of popular Marin County teacher Kevin McDonald Novato. Involved in the field since college, McDonald is as keen as ever to reiterate the continued importance of conservation efforts in California's Bay Area and elsewhere across the U.S.

"I've always been passionate about wildlife conservation," explains California-based teacher and conservationist Kevin McDonald Novato, speaking from his home in northern Marin County.

Today a popular science and math teacher, Kevin McDonald Novato became heavily involved with wildlife conservation and ecosystem restoration during his time at Minnesota's Carleton College in Northfield. "I became involved in ecosystem restoration in college," reveals McDonald, "where we replanted grasslands with native grasses and wildflowers among a wealth of other projects."

Now back in California, some 2,000 miles away from Northfield's grasslands, Kevin McDonald Novato remains just as passionate about wildlife conservation. "Wildlife conservation is incredibly important across the board, and especially so here in the San Francisco Bay Area," suggests Kevin.

"The Bay Area is regarded as one of North America's most notable hotspots for biodiversity," points out Kevin McDonald Novato. Urban sprawl, however, is more and more rapidly beginning to impact the area's wildlife, destroying habitats, adding to air pollution, and contributing massively toward ongoing issues with poor water quality, he says. "Almost 500,000 acres of the natural landscape are now thought to be at risk of significant wildlife-impacting development," reveals the expert.

Because of this, it's crucial that the importance of Bay Area wildlife conservation continues to be discussed, according to Kevin McDonald Novato. Even with Endangered Species Act protections now in place, there's still much to be done to ensure the future of the region's wildlife, McDonald says. "The same is true elsewhere in California, too," adds the conservationist, "as well as across huge swathes of the rest of the United States."

Thankfully, a wealth of wildlife and nature organizations now exist in and around San Francisco's Bay Area. These include the Bay Area Open Space Council, the Big Sur Land Trust, the California Native Plant Society, the Center for Ecosystem Management and Restoration, the Committee for Green Foothills, Grassroots Ecology, the Greenbelt Alliance, Marine Life Studies, Native Bird Connections, Nature in the City, the San Francisco Naturalist Society, San Francisco Nature Education, and The Watershed Project. "It's imperative that we support these organizations and their counterparts elsewhere across the country wherever possible," Kevin McDonald Novato notes.

Educator and published author Kevin McDonald Novato was born and raised in Sonoma County, California, and later graduated from Carleton College in Minnesota, where he played on the soccer team and worked in the arboretum. Following graduation, Kevin McDonald Novato spent four years in Tokyo teaching English, studying Japanese, and learning the art of karate. He then returned to California, where he remains today, and where he's now been teaching for more than twenty years.

In his free time, Kevin McDonald Novato still plays soccer and, on the weekends, enjoys attending concerts and art shows with his wife. Incredibly well-traveled, educator and conservationist Kevin McDonald Novato has visited six of the world's seven continents and plans to add Antarctica to the list in the near future.

Once Upon a Time All Humans Had Dark Skin

Variations in human skin color are adaptive traits that correlate closely with geography and the sun's ultraviolet radiation.

Variations in human skin color are adaptive traits that correlate closely with geography and the sun’s ultraviolet radiation.

Annual mean ultraviolet-B intensity.

Annual mean ultraviolet-B intensity.

Skin color, eye color, and hair texture are the primary ways human bodies adapt to intense sunlight in the tropics

We live in a very delicate Goldilocks balance of how much solar ultraviolet-B radiation reaches Earth’s surface and how much is absorbed by the cells making up our skin.”

— Dr. Peter L. Ward, U.S. Geological Survey retired

JACKSON, WYOMING, UNITED STATES, August 7, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Humans thrive on Earth only when they absorb just the right intensity of just the right types of solar radiation. Low-frequency, infrared sunlight keeps us warm. Moderate-frequency visible sunlight allows us to see and powers photosynthesis, causing plants to grow. But too much high-frequency ultraviolet sunlight and neither animals nor plants flourish. Life on Earth exists only because of a very delicate Goldilocks balance in the frequencies and intensities of solar radiation reaching Earth’s surface.

Earth’s atmosphere filters sunlight. The highest energy components of sunlight, including gamma rays, X-rays, and extreme ultraviolet radiation, are completely absorbed in the uppermost atmosphere where they cause ionization of nitrogen and oxygen—forming and heating the ionosphere, 620 to 62 miles above Earth.

Ultraviolet-C solar radiation is completely absorbed primarily by molecules of oxygen, forming and heating the mesosphere and stratosphere 62 to 6 miles above Earth.

Ultraviolet-B solar radiation is absorbed by ozone molecules, forming and heating the ozone layer 22 to 9 miles above Earth. Ultraviolet-B is the highest energy solar radiation reaching Earth’s surface. But normally, 98% of all ultraviolet-B is absorbed in the ozone layer. This is fortunate because ultraviolet-B has high-enough energy to cause sunburn, skin cancer, cataracts, and disruption of DNA, ultimately causing mutations in plants and animals. Thus, too much ultraviolet-B radiation is damaging and even fatal to life on Earth.

On the other hand, solar ultraviolet-B radiation, when absorbed by human skin, forms vitamin D, which is crucial for healthy bone growth and for healthy immune systems. Furthermore, ultraviolet-B is required for healthy plant development. Thus, not enough ultraviolet-B is also damaging to life on Earth.

“The crux of this delicate Goldilocks balance,” according to Dr. Peter L. Ward, a geophysicist for 27 years with the U.S. Geological Survey, “is how much solar ultraviolet-B radiation reaches Earth’s surface and how much is absorbed by the cells making up the skin of animals and the surface layer of plants.”

The intensity and duration of sunlight is greatest in the tropics, decreasing toward the poles. The primary way our bodies adapt to these changes is by adjusting skin color, eye color, and hair texture.

Our ancestors evolved from apes in the jungles of eastern Africa 6 to 7 million years ago. Around 1.2 million years ago, as the world descended deeper into the last ice age, a megadrought drove early humans into open savannah grasslands. They began to walk upright in open sunlight. They lost their body hair, evolved more efficient perspiration, and evolved short, curly, Afro-textured hair to protect their brain from the heat of direct sunshine.

But the primary evolutionary adaptation to bright sunlight is skin color produced by melanin. Melanin is a dark brown to black pigment that occurs naturally in the hair, skin, and the iris of the eyes in people and animals. Melanin is generated by exposure to ultraviolet radiation causing tanning of skin. Melanin absorbs up to 99.9% of ultraviolet-B radiation before it can penetrate deeper into the body, where is can damage tissue and DNA. Too much ultraviolet-B radiation causes depletion of folate that is required for the body to make DNA and RNA and to metabolize amino acids.

Thus, humans living in intense sunlight in equatorial regions, long before clothes were invented, developed dark skin, short, curly, dark Afro-textured hair, and brown eyes. Beginning 70,000 to 50,000 years ago, some Homo sapiens, members of our species, began migrating out of the tropics into mid-latitudes where sunlight was less intense. At higher latitudes, they evolved lower levels of melanin, leading to lighter skin, lighter eye color, and lighter hair color so that they could absorb adequate sunlight. Plus, they evolved straighter hair that blankets the head, providing increased warmth. These lower levels of melanin appear to have evolved in a heritable way in as little as 100 generations—approximately 2500 years.

There is a very high correlation between skin color and the latitude at which a population lived for thousands of years. The less intense the sunlight, the lighter the indigenous people’s skin. That is why fair skin, blonde hair, and blue eyes are so prevalent in Scandinavia.

As humans moved to higher latitudes, they developed clothing which meant less skin was exposed to sunlight, hastening decreases in melanin. They also developed diets rich in vitamin D, such as seafood, fatty meats, egg yolks, mushrooms, and, more recently, fortified foods such as milk, orange juice, and cereals.

During the last 12,000 years, after the last ice age, humans began living in the far north. Innuit developed a diet rich in vitamin D, emphasizing fatty fish and sea mammal blubber. Eurasian populations emphasized reindeer meat, organs, and fat.

Light-skinned people can produce vitamin D in their skin at rates 5 to 10 times faster than dark-skinned people. With the rapid dispersal and mixing of populations worldwide in recent centuries, up to 50% of world population today may not get enough sun and 40% of U.S. residents are deficient in vitamin D. How much sunshine is needed for a healthy body is a function of skin color—the darker the skin, the more sunshine is required.

The intensity of sunlight in the tropics has also influenced social customs. For example, the modern siesta, a nap after a midday meal, is a common way for those working outside to avoid the most intense sunshine in the early afternoon.

Thus, the existence and health of humans and plants living on Earth is determined by having just the right Goldilocks balance between how much solar ultraviolet-B radiation is absorbed by the ozone layer versus how much reaches Earth’s surface. Human bodies adapt over thousands of years to solar intensity at the latitude where their ancestors lived. Dark skin, brown eyes, and Afro-textured hair made it possible for early humans to thrive in the bright sunlight of tropical East Africa. Lighter skin, lighter eyes, and straighter, more insulating hair made it possible for humans to survive at higher latitudes as they roamed the world in search of food.

To deliver our standard for quality, we employ only the leaders in our field to create our award-winning training courses. ITU has won 4 Best in Biz Awards covering Company of the Year, Fastest Growing Company of the Year, Creative Department of the Year and Most Innovative Company of the Year. These awards solidify what our students already know; which is that we provide courses unmatched in quality at a price point lower than the competition. Learn more: https://www.ituonline.com
