‘Strange metals’ just got stranger

Posted: 02 Aug 2018 11:18 AM PDT

Scientists have discovered a behavior in materials called cuprates that suggests they carry current in a way entirely different from conventional metals such as copper. The research adds new meaning to the materials’ moniker, ”strange metals.”


New method refines cell sample analysis

Posted: 02 Aug 2018 11:15 AM PDT

Innovation in the field of biomedicine: Researchers have developed a novel method which increases more than tenfold the number of proteins that can be visualized per sample, making it possible to generate a comprehensive map of cellular organization across the various cellular states. This highly sophisticated and refined view can be used to advance precision medicine and is already being applied in cancer medicine.




Astronomers blown away by historic stellar blast

Posted: 02 Aug 2018 10:08 AM PDT

Observations from the Gemini South and other telescopes in Chile played a critical role in understanding light echoes from a stellar eruption which occurred almost 200 years ago. Gemini spectroscopy shows that ejected material from the blast is the fastest ever seen from a star that remained intact.


A kernel of promise in popcorn-powered robots

Posted: 02 Aug 2018 10:08 AM PDT

Researchers have discovered how to power simple robots with a novel substance that, when heated, can expand more than 10 times in size, change its viscosity by a factor of 10 and transition from regular to highly irregular granules with surprising force. You can also eat it with a little butter and salt.


AI device identifies objects at the speed of light

Posted: 02 Aug 2018 10:07 AM PDT

Electrical and computer engineers have created a physical artificial neural network — a device modeled on how the human brain works — that can analyze large volumes of data and identify objects at the actual speed of light. The device was created using a 3D printer.




Need help with your math homework? Ask these worms

Animals often rely on their sense of smell to locate food. It’s a law of nature: the first one to reach a food source has a better chance of surviving than those who do not. But how exactly does their brain translate scent and then navigate towards it?


Wearable devices: Useful medical insights or just more data?

Posted: 02 Aug 2018 08:56 AM PDT

Despite the popularity of wearable devices to track and measure health and sports performance, a new review highlights how surprisingly little we know we know about how well these sensors and machines work — let alone whether they deliver useful information.


Broadband internet causes sleep deprivation, a new study finds

Posted: 02 Aug 2018 07:23 AM PDT

Individuals with DSL access tend to sleep 25 minutes less than their counterparts without DSL Internet. They are significantly less likely to sleep between 7 and 9 hours, the amount recommended by the scientific community, and are less likely to be satisfied with their sleep, researchers find. The effect is largely driven by individuals that face time constraints in the morning and by the use of electronic devices in the evening (not by their use throughout the day)




Scientists present concept for the elimination of traffic jams

Posted: 02 Aug 2018 07:23 AM PDT

A team of researchers presents proposals for the traffic management of the future. A dynamic and fair toll for road use could reduce congestion.


Engaging with interactive media may be a sequence of actions, assessments

Posted: 31 Jul 2018 07:42 AM PDT

The way people engage with interactive media is usually portrayed as a single act — users either click on the content, or they do not. However, a team of researchers suggest that online engagement is not a single act, after all, but rather a sequence of assessments and interactions.
