Duke University uses vaporized hydrogen peroxide to clean N95 face masks for reuse

With shortages of N95 face masks persisting nationwide, healthcare facilities are scrambling to find ways to clean and treat the masks for reuse to protect doctors and nurses most at risk of exposure to COVID-19. Duke University thinks it has found a solution using vaporized hydrogen peroxide to decontaminate the masks. The process uses specialized equipment to vaporize hydrogen peroxide, which can then infuse all the layers of the mask to kill germs (including viruses) without degrading mask...

Private tech companies mobilize to address shortages for medical supplies, masks and sanitizer

Startups across the nation and around the world are looking for ways to relieve shortages of much-needed personal protective equipment and sanitizers used to halt the spread of COVID-19. While some of the largest privately held technology companies, like SpaceX and Tesla, have shifted to manufacturing ventilators, smaller companies are also trying to pitch in and relieve scarcity locally. Supplies have been difficult to come by in some of the areas hardest hit by the outbreak of the novel corona...

It’s still easy to find coronavirus mask ads on Facebook

Ads for face masks are still appearing on Facebook, Instagram and Google, according to a review of the platforms carried out by the Tech Transparency Project (TTP). This despite pledges by the platforms that they would stamp out ads which seek to profit from the coronavirus pandemic. Facebook said on March 6 that it would temporarily ban commerce listings and advertisements for medical face masks, in an effort to combat price-gouging and misinformation during the COVID-19 crisis. Google ...

White House asks construction companies to donate their N95 masks to hospitals

At today’s Corona Task Force press conference, Vice President Pence today asked construction companies to donate their stocks of N95 respirator masks to their local hospitals and stop ordering more for the time being. This call comes in the middle of a major shortage of these kinds of masks, which get their name from being able to block at least 95 percent of 0.3 micron particles. Because of their ability to filter out these very small particles, these N95 respirators are often used by construct...

‘M.A.S.K’ Movie Hires ‘Bad Boys For Life’ Writer

Remember the M.A.S.K. movie based on the action figure toyline from the 1980s? Well, it’s still happening – and it’s found its writer. Chris Bremner, who co-wrote Bad Boys For Life, has just been tapped to pen the script for the film, which is being directed by F. Gary Gray. Plot details remain masked in secrecy, but it’s safe to assume the story will involve  M.A.S.K. (Mobile Armored Strike Kommand) fighting V.E.N.O.M. (Vicious Evil Network of Mayhem).

Does the creepy Santa mask from "It's a Wonderful Life" exist somewhere?

"What's even the point of having an Internet if I can't buy a replica kid's plastic Santa Claus mask from 'It's a Wonderful Life'?"

Well, I don't anything about them or where to find them but I'm always up for a challenge. So, I went to my expert-in-all-things-novelty friend David Wahl, the Director of Awesome for Archie M...
