The Social Rewind for May 31, 2017

Are you subscribed to multiple social media networks like we are? Do you find it difficult it to keep up with all of the updates from the people you follow? Do you feel like you're missing a lot of good information?

"The Social Rewind," is a weekly compilation of what we thought were the most interesting, funny, or informational social media posts of the previous week. Q Source follows a variety of really fascinating companies and individuals on Twitter, Facebook & Google+ and we want to share the best of what they have to say.

Leading off this week’s column: We’ve all heard about the amazing things that 3D printing can accomplish, but this post from Tektronix presents a new 4D printing method that allows for the printing of flat components that can be folded into 3D objects at a later time.

This cool post from Valutek looks at how 4th graders are learning about human biology by wearing and marking up white, disposable coveralls with all of the body’s systems.

Agilent Technologies’ post examines how new technologies like PCR (polymerase chain reaction) and Real-time PCR (also known as quantitative or qPCR), can help forensic investigators deal with degraded DNA.

The National Nuclear Security Administration posted about their Super Truck team’s research that could potentially save 21 billion gallons of diesel fuel and 210 million tons of reduced carbon dioxide emissions for the trucking industry.

Laughing Squid’s post answers a question we’ve had for a long time: Why do airplanes still fly at the same speeds they did in the 1960s?

And we close out this week’s column with a blog post about our ACL Premium ESD Paints promo.

There you have it; another quick look at a few of last week's most interesting social media posts. We enjoy bringing you this weekly column and hope you liked reading the Social Rewind. We'd love it if you shared your interesting posts with us and if you would share this column with your friends and colleagues.
