Big Data Pinpoints Perfect Locations for Hydro-power

April 14, 2015 7:00 am | by Univ. of Leicester | News | Comments

A technology has the potential to revolutionize the sourcing of renewable energy from rivers. A software app automatically selects appropriate locations in rivers to site a large range of micro renewable hydro-power turbines and determines the environmental sensitivity of the location.


Scientists Learn How Tea, Apples Aid Health

April 14, 2015 7:00 am | by Institute of Food Research | News | Comments

Researchers have shown that polyphenols in green tea and apples block a signaling molecule called VEGF, which can trigger atherosclerosis and is a target for some anti-cancer drugs.


Walking Faster Can Save You from a Tsunami

April 14, 2015 7:00 am | by Associated Press, Jeff Barnard | News | Comments

About 5,500 more people could survive a major tsunami hitting the Pacific Northwest if they just walk a little faster to higher ground after roads are knocked out, a new study shows. The report looked at 73 communities along 700 miles of coastline in Oregon, Washington and Northern California.

A week shy of the fifth anniversary of the Deepwater Horizon oil spill, the Obama administration proposed new regulations aimed at strengthening oversight of offshore oil drilling equipment and ensuring that out-of-control wells can be sealed in an emergency.


Meteorites Shed Light on Earth's Layers

April 14, 2015 7:00 am | by The Australian National Univ. | News | Comments

A new analysis of the chemical make-up of meteorites has helped scientists work out when the Earth formed its layers. The research by an international team of scientists confirmed the Earth's first crust had formed around 4.5 billion years ago.


'Raincoat' Key to Improved Crop Protection

April 14, 2015 7:00 am | by Univ. of Edinburgh | News | Comments

Researchers have discovered how communities of beneficial bacteria form a waterproof coating on the roots of plants, to protect them from microbes that could potentially cause plant disease. The insight could lead to ways to control this shield and improve its efficiency, which could help curb the risk of unwanted infections in agricultural or garden plants.

Science Connect: Flexibility Built In

April 14, 2015 7:00 am | by Lindsay Hock, Editor, R&D Magazine | Videos | Comments

Flexibility is critical when considering the future of science, research and lab environments. However, research needs down the road are difficult to predict, and flexibility is hard to define. Yet, reducing a facility’s flexibility may mean the loss of spare engineering capacities/infrastructures, services planning and space for anticipated growth and fit-out.


Faux Meat May Become Norm as Conventional Rises in Price

April 13, 2015 3:00 pm | by ScienceNetwork WA | News | Comments

Steaks and chops could be pushed to the high-end of the meat market in the future, with artificial meats supplying the bulk, cheap end, research suggests. The review examined potential impacts of in vitro meat, plant, fauna and fungal-based meat alternatives, genetically modified animals and cloning.


Drug Test is Printed on Paper

April 13, 2015 3:00 pm | by VTT Technical Research Centre | News | Comments

Researchers have developed the first drug test printed on paper. They used antibodies as morphine sensing molecules when creating this printing technology-based morphine test. Using printing technology to manufacture rapid tests enables high production volumes and low production costs.


Body Can Control Bursts of HIV, Suggesting Cure is Possible

April 13, 2015 3:00 pm | by Univ. College London | News | Comments

The human immune system can handle large bursts of HIV activity and so it should be possible to cure HIV with a “kick and kill” strategy. The kick and kill strategy aims to cure HIV by stimulating the immune system with a vaccine, then reawakening dormant HIV hiding in white blood cells with a chemical kick so that the boosted immune system can identify and kill them.


Depression with Back Pain is Genetic

April 13, 2015 3:00 pm | by Univ. of Sydney | News | Comments

If you suffer from depression and back pain odds are it's down to your genes, suggests new research. A landmark study of twins reveals genetic factors might explain the commonly found association between low back pain and depression.
