One of the most mind-blowing ideas in physics, called the holographic principle, is that our universe is actually a hologram. “It turns out that this idea of the holographic principle or the universe is a hologram… actually helps us to solve some of the thorniest puzzles that arise when you try to combine quantum mechanics and general relativity,” says Matthew Headrick, an assistant professor of

Listeria in the feed: A dangerous hygiene problem in fattening pigs

In a recent study, researchers from Vetmeduni Vienna investigated an episode of fatal listeriosis in fattening pigs with a mortality rate of nearly 10 percent. The research team traced the source of infection to the fed silage. Following simple guidelines during the ensilaging process can minimize this risk—with benefits for food safety and public health.
