TL;DR: In this paper, the authors evaluate household travel surveys for the Washington metropolitan region conducted in 1968 and 1988, and show that commuting times remain stable or decline over the twenty year period despite an increase in average travel distance, after controlling for trip purpose and mode of travel.
Abstract: This paper evaluates household travel surveys for the Washington metropolitan region conducted in 1968 and 1988, and shows that commuting times remain stable or decline over the twenty year period despite an increase in average travel distance, after controlling for trip purpose and mode of travel. The average automobile work-to-home time of 32.5 minutes in both 1968 and 1988 is, moreover, very consistent with a 1957 survey showing an average time of 33.5 minutes in metropolitan Washington. Average trip speeds increased by more than 20 percent, countering the effect of increased travel distance. This change was observed during a period of rapid suburban growth in the region. With the changing distributional composition of trip origins and destinations, overall travel times have remained relatively constant. The hypothesis that jobs and housing mutually co-locate to optimize travel times is lent further support by these data
TL;DR: In this article, the authors have discussed the different type of vaccines with examples of COVID-19 vaccines, their rapid development compared to the traditional vaccine, associated challenges, and future prospects.
Abstract: COVID-19 has affected millions of people and put an unparalleled burden on healthcare systems as well as economies throughout the world. Currently, there is no decisive therapy for COVID-19 or related complications. The only hope to mitigate this pandemic is through vaccines. The COVID-19 vaccines are being developed rapidly, compared to traditional vaccines, and are being approved via Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) worldwide. So far, there are 232 vaccine candidates. One hundred and seventy-two are in preclinical development and 60 in clinical development, of which 9 are approved under EUA by different countries. This includes the United Kingdom (UK), United States of America (USA), Canada, Russia, China, and India. Distributing vaccination to all, with a safe and efficacious vaccine is the leading priority for all nations to combat this COVID-19 pandemic. However, the current accelerated process of COVID-19 vaccine development and EUA has many unanswered questions. In addition, the change in strain of SARS-CoV-2 in UK and South Africa, and its increasing spread across the world have raised more challenges, both for the vaccine developers as well as the governments across the world. In this review, we have discussed the different type of vaccines with examples of COVID-19 vaccines, their rapid development compared to the traditional vaccine, associated challenges, and future prospects.
TL;DR: In this paper, an experimental study has been conducted to investigate heat transfer, friction factor and thermo-hydraulic performance characteristics of flow in a rectangular duct artificially roughened on one side with multi-gap V-down ribs combined with staggered ribs.
Abstract: An experimental study has been conducted to investigate heat transfer, friction factor and thermo-hydraulic performance characteristics of flow in a rectangular duct artificially roughened on one side with multi-gap V-down ribs combined with staggered ribs. The rectangular duct used had aspect ratio of 12 and the Reynolds number based upon the mass flow rate of air at inlet of the duct ranged from 4000 to 12,000. The rib pitch-to-height (P/e) ratio was varied from 4 to 14, rib height-to-hydraulic diameter (e/Dh) ratio from 0.026 to 0.057 and angle of attack (α) from 40° to 80° while, gap width to rib height (g/e) ratio of 1, staggered rib length to rib height ratio (w/e) of 4.5, relative staggered rib pitch (p/P) value of 0.65 and two number of gap (n) on each side of the V-leg were used as fixed parameters during the experimentation. Results show two peaks for Nusselt number corresponding to the P/e value of 6 and 12 and decrease in the Nusselt number was observed for increase in the e/Dh value beyond 0.044. The maximum enhancement achieved in Nusselt number and thermohydraulic performance parameter was of 3.34 and 2.45 times respectively.

TL;DR: An IoT based architecture is suggested, which can be used to minimize the spreading of Covid-19, which has become pandemic, spreading all over the world.
Abstract: Covid-19 has become pandemic, spreading all over the world. Scientists and engineers are working day and night to develop a vaccine, to evolve more testing facilities, and to enhance monitoring systems. Mobile and web-based applications, based on questionnaires, have already been developed to monitor the health of individuals. Internet of Things (IoT) can be used to avoid the spreading of Covid-19. Internet of Things is an interconnection of physical devices and the Internet. Devices are not only sensel and record, but can also monitor and respond. In this paper, we have reviewed the literature available on Covid-19, monitoring techniques, and suggested an IoT based architecture, which can be used to minimize the spreading of Covid-19.
TL;DR: This review presents comprehensive information on the chemistry and pharmacology of the genus Stephania together with the traditional uses of many of its plants and the structure-activity relationship of different compounds.
Abstract: The plants of the genus Stephania (Menispermaceae) are widely distributed, and have long been used in folk medicine for the treatment of various ailments such as asthma, tuberculosis, dysentery, hyperglycemia, malaria, cancer and fever. Over 150 alkaloids together with flavonoids, lignans, steroids, terpenoids and coumarins have been identified in the genus, and many of these have been evaluated for biological activity. This review presents comprehensive information on the chemistry and pharmacology of the genus together with the traditional uses of many of its plants. In addition, this review discusses the structure-activity relationship of different compounds as well as recent developments and the scope for future research in this aspect.
