About this capture
Organization: Internet Archive
These crawls are part of an effort to archive pages as they are created and archive the pages that they refer to. That way, as the pages that are referenced are changed or taken from the web, a link to the version that was live when the page was written will be preserved.
Then the Internet Archive hopes that references to these archived pages will be put in place of a link that would be otherwise be broken, or a companion link to allow people to see what was originally intended by a page's authors.
The goal is to fix all broken links on the web. Crawls of supported "No More 404" sites. Collection: Wikipedia Near Real Time (from IRC) This is a collection of web page captures from links added to, or changed on, Wikipedia pages. The idea is to bring a reliability to Wikipedia outlinks so that if the pages referenced by Wikipedia articles are changed, or go away, a reader can permanently find what was originally referred to.
This is part of the Internet Archive's attempt to rid the web of broken links. TIMESTAMPS
World’s first research centre in dermoskeletics comes to UNB
The University of New Brunswick (UNB) welcomed partners from the government of New Brunswick, Mitacs and B-TEMIA to the Richard J. CURRIE CENTER on June 2 to announce funding for the world’s first research centre in dermoskeletics on the university’s Fredericton campus. The announcement was followed by a demonstration of the industry-leading dermoskeleton technology in the Andrew and Marjorie McCain Human Performance Lab.
A centre of research excellence
Under the direction of Dr. Kevin Englehart as executive coordinator and Dr. Chris McGibbon as scientific director, the center will employ over 13 postdoctoral, doctoral and masters students from UNB’s Institute of Biomedical Engineering and the faculty of kinesiology over the next five years. The Mitacs funding will be held jointly by:
- Dr. Wayne Albert
- Dr. Vicki Chester
- Dr. Kevin Englehart
- Dr. Usha Kuruganti
- Dr. Peter Kyberd
- Dr. Chris McGibbon
- Dr. Jon Sensinger
Robotics meets rehabiliation
Dermoskeletics is a new science that studies the interaction between the human body and its environment while assisted with a skin-type motorized mechanism. Dermoskeletics generates dermoskeletons that eliminate musculoskeletal stress on the body structure by injecting biomechanical energy at joints, providing the mechanical assistance to the users for the restoration, the maintenance or the augmentation of their biomechanical functions.
“Thanks to the support of our federal and provincial governments and partners like the New Brunswick Innovation Foundation, Mitacs and B-TEMIA, our scientists and engineers are developing cutting-edge research at the forefront of the biomedical engineering and kinesiology fields,” said UNB President Eddy Campbell. “With B-TEMIA’s state-of-the-art technology, faculty and graduate students in the Centre for Research in Dermoskeletics will be able to work with health-care professionals to prevent occupational injuries and to improve the mobility and quality of life for those living with neurological conditions.”
Mitacs CEO Dr. Arvind Gupta echos the benefits of collaboration: “This new partnership provides B-TEMIA with access to the best minds from the University of New Brunswick, fostering further research and development in the field of dermoskeletics. In addition, these students and postdocs will gain professional skills training, along with valuable experience working on projects that directly benefit business through this industry-university collaboration.”
Mitacs is a national, not-for-profit organization that develops the next generation of innovators with vital skills through a suite of unique research and training programs: Mitacs Accelerate, Elevate, Step, and Globalink. In partnership with companies, government and universities, Mitacs is supporting a new economy using Canada’s most valuable resource — its people.
