EVER wonder about what piece of clothing (eg, shoes) or gadget (bacteria-ridden coins or mobile phones) inhabited the security bin you just placed your headphones into passing through security checks at the airport?
Fear no more - as long as you are flying out of Akron-Canton Airport, North Canton, Ohio USA.
The airport has installed a nanotechnology solution that uses light to clean checkpoint bins as they are processed 24/7.
The system involves NanoSeptic mats and skins for the bins, containing “mineral nano-crystals” which create a self-cleaning oxidation reaction that’s stronger than bleach, continuously breaking down organic contaminants, the airport claims.
ANOTHER tragic example of the ways smoking can kill has played out in India this week, where a man diagnosed with throat cancer allegedly shot dead the colleague who introduced him to the habit.
The pair were both 25 and worked as chefs at a restaurant, and began smoking cigarettes and mariũuana together.
Eventually one of them developed a throat infection and after consulting a doctor was told he had developed throat cancer due to excessive smoking.
The man was reportedly “consumed with rage” and shot his colleague during an argument.
