New Web-Based Tools to Help Food Companies Protect the Food Supply

Our economy, livelihood and wellbeing depend on food and its supply chains. Supply chains may break if a natural disaster destroys a crop in its primary production region, or if someone tampers with food to cause harm or raise profits. In such cases we need to find out quickly about these incidents and find alternative sources of food ingredients and supplies.

With $3 Million Grant, Researchers Hope to Help Find Sites to Grow Tomorrow’s Produce

NIFAGrant-crops-asseng071917.jpg

University of Florida researchers are sounding a warning bell that fresh produce may be hard to come by in the future. Scientists with the UF Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences cite changes in our climate, loss of fresh water and competition for resources as major threats in farmers’ ability to increase production of fruits and vegetables.

Humans have created 8.3 billion metric tons of plastics since large-scale production of the synthetic materials began in the early 1950s, and most of it now resides in landfills or the natural environment, according to a study published today in the journal Science Advances.

Toward 20-Story Earthquake-Safe Buildings Made From Wood

20170714-331DSC_7387UCSanDiegoPublications_ErikJepsencopy.jpg

-- A two-story wooden structure endured four different earthquake simulations on July 14, 2017 on the world’s largest outdoor shake table here in San Diego. And it’s still standing before more tests in the coming weeks. The goal of the tests is to gather enough data to design wood buildings as tall as 20 stories that do not suffer significant damage during large earthquakes. That is, not only can occupants leave the building unharmed, but they can come back and resume living in the building shortly after a temblor.
