Research aims to improve rechargeable batteries by focusing on graphene oxide paper Thursday December 18th, 2014 05:00:00 AM
(Kansas State University) A Kansas State University engineering team has discovered some of graphene oxide's important properties that can improve sodium- and lithium-ion flexible batteries.

Instant-start computers possible with new breakthrough Thursday December 18th, 2014 05:00:00 AM
(Cornell University) If data could instead be encoded without current it would require much less energy, and make things like low-power, instant-on computing a ubiquitous reality.A team at Cornell University has made a breakthrough in that direction with a room-temperature magnetoelectric memory device. Equivalent to one computer bit, it exhibits the holy grail of next-generation nonvolatile memory: magnetic switchability, in two steps, with nothing but an electric field. Their results were published online ...

(Springer Science+Business Media ) The Journal of Materials Science has awarded the 2014 Robert W. Cahn Prize to Lucas R. Meza and Julia R. Greer, both from the California Institute of Technology, for their paper titled 'Mechanical Characterization of Hollow Ceramic Nanolattices.'

NASA/USGS satellite sees green-up along Colorado River's Delta after experimental flow Thursday December 18th, 2014 05:00:00 AM
(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) A pulse of water released down the lower reaches of the Colorado River last spring resulted in more than a 40 percent increase in green vegetation where the water flowed, as seen by the Landsat 8 satellite.

Study finds Illinois is most critical hub in food distribution network Thursday December 18th, 2014 05:00:00 AM
(University of Illinois College of Engineering) Illinois is the most critical hub in the network of US domestic food transfers, according to a new study at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. According to the report, the US food network moves more than 400 million tons of food annually. Of that total, more than 70 million tons are transported through Illinois, the most of any state in the nation.

(NASA/Johnson Space Center) The Cloud-Aerosol Transport System, and new research including flatworms, wearable technology, an external radiation monitor and tools to use the station as a microbial observatory will head to the orbiting outpost on the fifth SpaceX mission.

EPSRC invests in UK/China research partnerships for sustainable materials for infrastructures Thursday December 18th, 2014 05:00:00 AM
(Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council) Six new research projects, to improve the sustainability of infrastructure development in the UK and China, are to receive over £3 million in funding from the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council. The funding follows on from a visit to the UK earlier this year by National Science Foundation of China President Yang Wei.The projects will involve academics from nine UK universities which will partner with nine leading institutions in China.

Internet addiction affects 6 percent of people worldwide Thursday December 18th, 2014 05:00:00 AM
(Mary Ann Liebert, Inc./Genetic Engineering News) Internet addiction is an impulse-control problem marked by an inability to inhibit Internet use, which can adversely affect a person's life, including their health and interpersonal relationships. The prevalence of Internet addiction varies among regions around the world, as shown by data from more than 89,000 individuals in 31 countries analyzed for a study published in Cyberpsychology, Behavior, and Social Networking.
