Algae-Forestry, Bioenergy Mix Could Help Make CO2 Vanish From Thin Air

Posted: 12 Apr 2018 11:05 AM PDT

An unconventional melange of algae, eucalyptus and bioenergy with carbon capture and storage appears to be a quirky ecological recipe. But, scientists from Cornell University, Duke University, and the University of Hawaii at Hilo have an idea that could use that recipe to help power and provide food protein to large regions of the world - and simultaneously remove carbon dioxide from Earth's atmosphere.

LJI Researchers Are One Step Closer to an Effective Anti-Atherosclerosis Vaccine

Posted: 12 Apr 2018 10:05 AM PDT

Newswise imageA new paper published in Circulation by researchers at La Jolla Institute for Allergy and Immunology reports successful vaccination of atherosclerotic mice with a small chunk of protein snipped out of "bad cholesterol." Vaccination reduced plaque levels in test mice, and other experiments with human blood samples identified the class of T cells likely responsible for positive outcomes. The paper suggests that a comparable strategy could form the basis of a human vaccine.

To Impress Females, Costa's Hummingbirds "Sing" With Their Tail Feathers

Posted: 12 Apr 2018 10:05 AM PDT

Newswise imageUnlike related hummingbird species, Costa's perform their dives to the side of females, rather than in front of them. In a paper published today in Current Biology, researchers at the University of California, Riverside show this trajectory minimizes an audible Doppler sound that occurs when the Costa's dive.

Could Holey Silicon Be the Holy Grail of Electronics?

Posted: 12 Apr 2018 10:05 AM PDT

Circumbinary Castaways: Short-Period Binary Systems Can Eject Orbiting Worlds

Posted: 12 Apr 2018 10:00 AM PDT

Planets orbiting "short-period" binary stars, or stars locked in close orbital embrace, can be ejected off into space as a consequence of their host stars' evolution, according to new research from the University of Washington.

Inhibiting Metabolism Found to Be Effective in Treating Aggressive Form of Lung Cancer

Posted: 12 Apr 2018 10:00 AM PDT

Newswise imageResearchers have found that two targeted therapies could be more effective if used in combination to treat squamous cell carcinomas of the lung. The two drugs, MLN128 and CB-839, individually target the metabolism of key nutrients glucose and glutamine, respectively, prohibiting the cancer from switching metabolic gears between glucose (a simple sugar) and glutamine (an amino acid) to tap vital sources of energy. This switch enables the cancer cells to adapt their metabolism and evade treatments.

UNH Researchers Find Combination For Small Data Storage and Tinier Computers

Posted: 12 Apr 2018 09:00 AM PDT

It may sound like a futuristic device out of a spy novel, a computer the size of a pinhead, but according to new research from the University of New Hampshire, it might be a reality sooner than once thought. Researchers have discovered that using an easily made combination of materials might be the way to offer a more stable environment for smaller and safer data storage, ultimately leading to miniature computers.

DHS S&T Helps Solve Mystery of 4,000-Year-Old Mummy

Posted: 12 Apr 2018 08:05 AM PDT

Newswise imageDHS S&T recently used advanced DNA sequencing to determine the identity of a 4,000-year-old mummy head found in 1915, when American explorers entered an ancient tomb cut in the parched limestone cliffs of the eastern bank of the Nile River, 155 miles south of Cairo.

New Lantana Plants Protect Native Flora and Enhance Landscapes

Posted: 12 Apr 2018 07:05 AM PDT

Newswise imageHome and property owners often enhance their landscapes with the beautiful lantana, but some of the plant's varieties may escape yards, spread to areas where they shouldn't go and cross-pollinate Florida's native lantana. Bloomify(tm) Rose and Bloomify(tm) Red are beautiful - so they will continue to enhance landscapes - but they don't produce fruit and seeds, don't spread and don't cross-pollinate Florida's native lantana, Lantana depressa, said Zhanao Deng, a professor of environmental horticulture at the UF Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences.

World's Leading Coffee Companies Commit to Tackle Deforestation in Indonesia

Newswise imageIt is exactly 20 years since experts from Empa and VERT published the first test results on diesel particle filters. Today, more than 100 million vehicles worldwide are fitted with such filters. However, a VERT conference held at the Empa Academy revealed why the emission problem is by no means over.

Understanding a Cell's 'Doorbell'

Posted: 12 Apr 2018 03:05 AM PDT

Newswise imageA multi-institutional project to understand one of the major targets of human drug design has produced new insights into how structural communication works in a cell component called a G protein-coupled receptor (GPCRs), basically a "doorbell" structure that alerts the cell of important molecules nearby.

Sexual Objectification Influences Visual Perception

Posted: 12 Apr 2018 03:05 AM PDT

It has been suggested that sexually objectified women or men are visually processed in the same fashion of an object. Far from being unanimously accepted, this claim has been criticized by a lack of scientific rigor. A team led by Giorgia Silani, in collaboration with Helmut Leder, of the University of Vienna, and scientists of the University of Trieste and SISSA have explored the conditions under which this phenomenon persists. The results of the study were recently published in the renowned scientific journal "PlosOne".
