    Odd but very cool!

    Face mask prototype can detect COVID-19 infection
    Engineers at MIT and Harvard have designed a prototype face mask that can diagnose the person wearing the mask with COVID-19 within about 90 minutes and can be used to detect other pathogens and chemicals.

    Engineers at MIT and Harvard University have designed a novel face mask that can diagnose the wearer with COVID-19 within 90 minutes. The masks are embedded with tiny, disposable sensors that can be fitted into other face masks and could also be adapted to detect other viruses.

    The sensors are based on freeze-dried cellular machinery that the research team has previously developed for use in paper diagnostics for viruses such as Ebola and Zika. In a new study, the researchers showed that the sensors could be incorporated into not only face masks but also clothing such as lab coats, potentially offering a new way to monitor health care workers’ exposure to a variety of pathogens or other threats.

    Daycare owner accused of hiding 26 children behind fake wall found guilty on more than two dozen abuse charges

    A Colorado woman accused of stashing 26 children behind a phony wall when her daycare was hit with a surprise inspection has been found guilty on a slew of child abuse charges.

    Carla Faith was convicted of 26 counts of misdemeanor child abuse, a felony count of attempting to influence a public servant and a misdemeanor count of running a child care facility without a license, The Gazette reported. Another employee was also hit with more than two dozen abuse charges.

    Authorities responded to the Mountain Play Place in November 2019 to investigate reports that Faith was caring for more children than legally permitted. When they arrived on the scene, there were no children immediately visible and the owner insisted that there was no one else present.

    Amid a quick search of the daycare, an officer spotted a seam separating a false wall from the actual wall, according to an arrest affidavit. Behind the partition, were 26 children, many of them sweaty and thirsty and some with dirty diapers.

    I hope that the sentences are the judicial equivalent of the ACME anvil dropping on their heads from a great height: extremely heavy and without mercy.

    Except even Wylie Coyote wouldn't have done something that truly despicable.
