Nonfriction literature Friday May 22nd, 2015 04:00:00 AM
(Lehigh University) Friction and wear costs the US at least $500 billion every year. The National Science Foundation is supporting joint Lehigh-DuPont research into tribology through the GOALI Program, Grant Opportunities for Academic Liaison with Industry.

Scientists create mice with a major genetic cause of ALS and FTD Friday May 22nd, 2015 04:00:00 AM
(NIH/National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke) Scientists at Mayo Clinic, Jacksonville, Fla., created a novel mouse that exhibits the symptoms and neurodegeneration associated with the most common genetic forms of frontotemporal dementia (FTD) and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS, Lou Gehrig's disease), both of which are caused by a mutation in the a gene called C9ORF72.

University of Houston named center of excellence for work on cyber defense Friday May 22nd, 2015 04:00:00 AM

New computational technique advances color 3D printing process Friday May 22nd, 2015 04:00:00 AM
(Columbia University School of Engineering and Applied Science) Columbia Engineering professor Changxi Zheng has developed a technique that enables hydrographic printing, a widely used industrial method for transferring color inks on a thin film to the surface of 3D objects, to color these surfaces with the most precise alignment ever attained. His new computational method, which simulates the printing process and predicts color film distortion during hydrographic immersion, generates a colored film that guarantees ...

Disaster investigations, relief may benefit from explosion-sizing innovation Friday May 22nd, 2015 04:00:00 AM
(American Geophysical Union) Disaster investigators and emergency personnel may find themselves better able to assess and respond to terrorist attacks and industrial accidents with the aid of a new computational tool that determines the energy from explosions near the Earth's surface.

This Slinky lookalike 'hyperlens' helps us see tiny objects Friday May 22nd, 2015 04:00:00 AM
(University at Buffalo) It looks like a Slinky suspended in motion. Yet this photonics advancement -- called a metamaterial hyperlens -- doesn't climb down stairs. Instead, it improves our ability to see tiny objects.

Basel physicists develop efficient method of signal transmission from nanocomponents Friday May 22nd, 2015 04:00:00 AM
(University of Basel) Physicists have developed an innovative method that could enable the efficient use of nanocomponents in electronic circuits. To achieve this, they have developed a layout in which a nanocomponent is connected to two electrical conductors, which uncouple the electrical signal in a highly efficient manner. The scientists at the Department of Physics and the Swiss Nanoscience Institute at the University of Basel have published their results in the scientific journal Nature Communications together ...

More than two dozen articles provide insights on mummies Friday May 22nd, 2015 04:00:00 AM
(Wiley) In a special issue, The Anatomical Record ventures into the world of human mummified remains. In 26 articles, the anatomy of mummies is exquisitely detailed through cutting edge examination, while they are put in historical, archeological, and cultural context. Investigators even take on the thorny issue of ethics as it applies to human remains in general and to the specific case of mummy research.
