    Welcome to random Wiki of the Day where we read the summary of a random Wikipedia page every day.

    The random article for Saturday, 2 July 2022 is Wrestling at the 2016 Summer Olympics – Women's freestyle 48 kg.

    Women's freestyle 48 kilograms competition at the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, took place on August 17 at the Carioca Arena 2 in Barra da Tijuca. This freestyle wrestling competition consists of a single-elimination tournament, with a repechage used to determine the winner of two bronze medals. The two finalists face off for gold and silver medals. Each wrestler who loses to one of the two finalists moves into the repechage, culminating in a pair of bronze medal matches featuring the semifinal losers each facing the remaining repechage opponent from their half of the bracket.

    The medals for the competition were presented by Poul-Erik Høyer Larsen, IOC member, Denmark, and the gifts were presented by Natalia Yariguina, United World Wrestling vice president.

    Antibiotic properties of nanoparticles

    Antibiotic properties of nanoparticles

    Welcome to random Wiki of the Day where we read the summary of a random Wikipedia page every day.

    The random article for Friday, 1 July 2022 is Antibiotic properties of nanoparticles.

    Nanoparticles have been studied extensively for their antimicrobial properties in order to fight super bug bacteria. Several characteristics in particular make nanoparticles strong candidates as a traditional antibiotic drug alternative. Firstly, they have a high surface area to volume ratio, which increases contact area with target organisms.

    Secondly, they may be synthesized from polymers, lipids, and metals.

    Thirdly, a multitude of chemical structures, such as fullerenes and metal oxides, allow for a diverse set of chemical functionalities.

    The key to nanoparticle efficacy against antibiotic resistant strains of bacteria lies in their small size. On the nano scale, particles can behave as molecules when interacting with a cell which allows them to easily penetrate the cell membrane and interfere in vital molecular pathways if the chemistry is possible.

    Felipe Clemente de Diego y Gutiérrez

    Welcome to random Wiki of the Day where we read the summary of a random Wikipedia page every day.

    The random article for Thursday, 30 June 2022 is Felipe Clemente de Diego y Gutiérrez.

    Felipe Clemente de Diego y Gutiérrez (1866 – 1945) was a Spanish jurist who was instrumental in rebuilding the Spanish state and its judiciary after the Francoist victory in the Spanish Civil War.

    Clemente de Diego taught Roman law in Santiago in 1897–99 and civil law in Valladolid, Barcelona and Madrid until 1936. He co-founded the Revista de derecho privado, later the most significant civil law journal in Spain, in 1913. In 1938, the Franquist regime named him president of the Tribunal Supremo (Supreme Court), which post he held until his death.

    The principal work of Clemente de Diego is the six-volume Curso elemental de Derecho civil español común y foral (1920–23). He also engaged in the study of the philosophy of law, promoting the adherence to an ideal of natural law founded on Christian ethics in the practice of law, and denouncing legal formalism as the reason for the perceived crisis of the legal system prior to the civil war.
