Fast Radio Bursts 'Twists and Shouts' Help Scientists Determine Source of Cosmic Blasts

Posted: 10 Jan 2018 10:00 AM PST

An international group of astronomers has found that the Cornell University-discovered fast radio burst FRB 121102 - a brief, gigantic pulse of radio waves from 3 billion light years away - passes through a veil of magnetized plasma. This causes the cosmic blasts to "shout and twist," which will help the scientists determine the source.

This development is promising for new electronic devices that interact with light, such as new kinds of transistors, superconducting switches and gas sensors.

NYC Health Department IDs 10 Outbreaks of Foodborne Illness Using Yelp Reviews Since 2012

Posted: 10 Jan 2018 06:05 AM PST

The NYC Health Department announced that since 2012, 10 outbreaks of foodborne illness were identified through a computer system jointly created with Columbia University's Department of Computer Science. Launched in 2012, the computer system tracks foodborne illnesses based on certain keywords that appear in Yelp restaurant reviews. This strategy has helped Health Department staff identify approximately 1,500 complaints of foodborne illness in New York City each year, for a total of 8,523 since July 2012.
