Taking a Closer Look at Hurricane Sandy’s Destruction

When Hurricane Sandy battered the East Coast last fall, it was easy to see the result of the destruction: homes were damaged, portions of beach towns were swept away, millions lost power, water surged into New York City’s subways and more. But now, researchers are aiming to give rescue and recovery workers an even clearer picture of the storm damage – the kind of picture that can only be created through satellites, remote-controlled aircraft and infrared/ultraviolet cameras. A group of Drexel University engineers set out to show emergency workers images of Hurricane Sandy that can’t be seen with the naked eye. They wanted to paint a detailed picture to help […]

Don’t Let Jack Frost Nip Your Ears: Keeping Ears Safe and Sound (and Warm and Dry)

Ears are delicate, so keep them warm and dry in the winter. And don’t neglect hearing devices when preparing for winter weather conditions. Rough weather, particularly cold conditions, can present challenges for exposed body parts, particularly the ears. Ears cool down very quickly because they have no protective fat tissue. The nerves in the ear canal run unprotected under the skin and may react with a strong pain impulse to changing temperatures. In addition, the risk of infection in the ears increases in cold conditions because less blood is circulated. Cold and wind can irritate the ear canal, which often causes pain, while water in the ears can […]
