(University Hospitals Case Medical Center) Dr. Stephanie Pope conducted this study as an effort to demonstrate the clinical implications of social media and form an understanding of the legal and ethical consequences of social media within practice. Institutions across the country lack protocols relating to the media forms and professional guidelines need to be established.

Wearable technology can help with public speaking Monday March 30th, 2015 04:00:00 AM

Professor Tyagi's team to receive an award for excellence in environmental engineering Monday March 30th, 2015 04:00:00 AM
(INRS) The quality and originality of Professor Rajeshwar Dayal Tyagi and his team's project on the bioconversion of waste into biodiesel earned them the Superior Achievement for Excellence in Environmental Engineering and Science Award, from the American Academy of Environmental Engineers and Scientists. Professor Tyagi and his team developed an integrated approach to resource management by showing that a variety of raw materials can be used to produce bioenergy.

Carnegie Mellon researchers create 'Wikipedia' for neurons Monday March 30th, 2015 04:00:00 AM
(Carnegie Mellon University) To help scientists make sense of 'brain big data,' researchers at Carnegie Mellon University have used data mining to create, a publicly available website that acts like Wikipedia, indexing physiological information about neurons. The site will help to accelerate the advance of neuroscience research by providing a centralized resource for collecting and comparing data on neuronal function.

NASA's ISS-RapidScat sees Typhoon Maysak's stronger winds become more uniform Monday March 30th, 2015 04:00:00 AM
(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) A tropical cyclone does not always have consistently strong winds all the way around it, and NASA's ISS-RapidScat instrument confirmed that was the case with Typhoon Maysak as it was strengthening in the Northwestern Pacific Ocean. Over the course of three days, As the tropical cyclone strengthened, RapidScat saw strongest sustained winds around Typhoon Maysak expand and spread from the northern quadrant to other quadrants of the storm.

How DNA alarm-system works Monday March 30th, 2015 04:00:00 AM
(Lomonosov Moscow State University) Researcher from Lomonosov Moscow State University managed to clarify how DNA damage signaling works. The DNA molecule is chemically unstable giving rise to DNA lesions. That is why DNA damage detection, signaling and repair, collectively known as the DNA damage response, are needed. DNA repair consists of enzymes which find the damaged DNA and repair it. Some of them recognize the damaged bases and give signals to the other enzymes, which repair the DNA.

Goodbye, range anxiety? Electric vehicles may be more useful than previously thought Monday March 30th, 2015 04:00:00 AM
(DOE/Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory) In the first study of its kind, scientists at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory quantitatively show that electric vehicles will meet the daily travel needs of drivers longer than commonly assumed. They found that batteries that have lost 20 percent of their originally rated energy storage capacity can still meet the daily travel needs of more than 85 percent of US drivers.

Oxygen therapy in COPD patients is associated with burn injury Monday March 30th, 2015 04:00:00 AM
(University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston) Researchers from the University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston have found that patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease receiving home oxygen have a higher risk of burn injury. This study was published on March 30 in Mayo Clinic Proceedings.

Crowdsourced tool for depression Monday March 30th, 2015 04:00:00 AM
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology) Researchers at MIT and Northwestern University have developed a new peer-to-peer networking tool that enables sufferers of anxiety and depression to build online support communities and practice therapeutic techniques.

UMD's Physics Frontier Center renewed by National Science Foundation Monday March 30th, 2015 04:00:00 AM
(University of Maryland) The National Science Foundation renewed its support for the Joint Quantum Institute's (JQI) Physics Frontier Center with a new five-year grant. JQI is a partnership between the University of Maryland and the National Institute of Standards and Technology, with support from the Laboratory for Physical Sciences. The center supports researchers in atomic and condensed matter physics. The center also hosts physics public outreach programs, including a hands-on summer program for high school ...
