Mushy Bananas as Building Materials, (or Underwear)

by SimpleScience team

Brazilian scientists are creating extremely durable plastics using the fibers of bananas, pineapples and other fruits.

“The properties of these plastics are incredible. They are light, but very strong,” said lead scientist Alcides Leao. Leao sees uses for the tiny fibers in creating the next generation of green auto parts. “For one thing, they will help reduce the weight of cars and that will improve fuel economy.”

This banana car technology is years away from matching up with the designs of more expensive, green competitors.

Other industries are tapping into the banana fiber’s versatile properties. A residential building facade in Bangkok, Thailand was built by ArchitectKidd using materials made from banana fibers. This helps keep the building cool in hot temperatures. The bananas lend it an organic and natural exterior.

Not all things have to be rough and tough. Australian company, Aussiebum, produces underwear blending cotton with banana fibers. Sexy?

“We researched into the concept of banana fabric with a knitting mill in Australia and discovered it is a very economically friendly fiber and also very comfy to wear! So fits perfectly for a fabric in underwear,” said Lloyd Jones of Aussiebum.

    Many children are less interested in toys themselves and more and more interested in tablets and video games. And that’s because the toys are performing and leaving little room for the child to come up with something from it, to participate, to create. They almost do everything by themselves. And that puts the child out of the learning process. At most, they can be temporary pleasures.
    Parents always enjoy the very varied learning possibilities that these toys offer, but it is stressed that they do everything in the place of the child, his ability to use his imagination is very low. In addition, many of them form a child’s partner, making play very solitary and not allowing interaction with the other. For example, a little boy told me that he spent hours in a row building very sophisticated legal, but he still does not allow a play partner because he would “spoil” his work.

    What is happening today? Are children playing again? Yes, they play, and they are still very active and involved in what they call the game. It’s just that most of these games do not happen in real time, face to face, but in a virtual time, in a sequence of moments. Unlike previous games that were stereotyped, allowing a minimum of improvisation but focusing on relationship, rules, team spirit, these online games have a very creative character, they turn as they are played, He asks the child intellectually and emotionally because the emotions are very intense.

    A 10-year-old kid responded to her mother, who was terribly annoyed at the energy she puts on the game in the face of the themes: in school, I am somehow, in my game I am the best. My friends in the rely on me. So here’s a prime advantage of the game, it can become a narcissistic support in the healthy development of self-image.

    Simpsons’ Success and Income

    Brought in to replace another actor, Azaria was initially working week to week on The Simpsons, and didn’t feel secure in the job — in a 2017 interview, he admitted, “I was genuinely surprised each week when they called me to come back.”
