Inspired by nature – a timber beetle larva to be exact – Cox studied the creature to better understand how to cut wood more efficiently. With his learnings, he designed a new saw chain that was modeled after the larva's alternating C-shape jaws. He called it the “Cox Chipper Chain” and started the Oregon Saw Chain Corp. to produce it. Cox's saw chain revolutionized the timber industry, and it remains widely used today around the globe. Over the years, the company has grown into a multinational organization with numerous acquisitions and mergers. ... info@me-newswire.com Tue, 11 May 2021 11:58:46 +0100 Velodyne Lidar Launches Breakthrough Intelligent Infrastructure Solution http://aetoswire.com//news/13697/en (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Velodyne Lidar, Inc. (Nasdaq: VLDR, VLDRW) today launched its Intelligent Infrastructure Solution designed to solve some of the most challenging and pervasive infrastructure problems.

The researchers found that O3 trends correlated significantly with a variety of other hemodynamic variables and lactic acid levels commonly used in the monitoring of septic shock patients. They also found rSO2 values differed significantly between patients who survived and those who did not, suggesting it may have value as a predictor of mortality in septic shock patients. ... info@me-newswire.com Tue, 11 May 2021 09:41:05 +0100
