The pilot of a Piper Archer made an emergency landing on a beach in Venice, Florida, on Sunday afternoon, hitting a man and his 10-year-old daughter who were walking on the shore. The father died at the scene, and the girl was airlifted to a hospital where authorities said she was believed to be in critical condition. The pilot and passenger in the Archer were unhurt.
Injuries and fatalities caused by fatigue-related accidents could be curtailed with sensors embedded into seatbelts.
A new ultra-sensitive, low-cost and portable system for detecting mercury in environmental water has been developed by researchers. "The promising sensing performance of this system along with its cost-competiveness and portability make it an excellent potential alternative to current analytical techniques," says the project's leader. "This technique could provide the basis for future point-of-analysis systems for monitoring water quality on site and may help implement better monitoring processes around the world."
