Young Women Scientists with the power to change our future. Children with Dravet syndrome, a severe form of epilepsy, had fewer seizures after taking a daily oral solution of the cannabis compound called cannabidiol, which does not have the psychoactive properties of marijuana, results from a double-blind, placebo-controlled trial reveal.
Cellphones exceed U.S. FCC exposure limits by as much as double for children, study finds (October 19, 2011) – New research shows that cell phones used in the shirt or pants pocket exceed the U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC) exposure guidelines and that children absorb twice as much microwave radiation from phones as do adults… full story.
A new, easy-to-use EEG electrode set for the measurement of the electrical activity of the brain has been developed, making it possible to attach the electrode set on the patient quickly, resulting in reliable results without any special treatment of the skin.
The author is rightly no so much concerned with the Sun making the earth uninhabitable in a few hundred million years, but with more immediate risks, the top three being nuclear war, germ warfare or some variant, and superintelligence as mentioned author also takes a look at space colonization, complete with the interesting theory that the reason we fail to find extraterrestial life is that most civilizations fail to make it past all the obstacles to becoming intergalactic, there being so much that can go wrong along the his …
On Friday, May 19th, 2017 the School of Science hosted a graduation brunch for the graduating students in the undergraduate and graduate programs in all School of Science departments. Acid rain is known to easily dissolve limestone and marble, and other types of stone containing large amounts of calcium carbonate. It seems Kim Jong-un may be wielding a weapon much more powerful than before, with growing concerns that North Korea has joined the select group of nations in possession of a hydrogen bomb.
Vehicles could all be electric and this would make acid rain much less common. Theory H also doesn’t predict the Higgs mass so any new boson lurking in the future with Spin0 might be the Higgs. Rain is a fresh water liquid which is formed from the atmospheric water vapor, but if the atmosphere it forms in is polluted the result would be acidic rain.
Last week, a huge scandal rocked the Tunisian and Arab scientific and educational world: a PhD student submitted a thesis declaring Earth to be flat, unmoving, young (only 13,500 years of age), and the centre of the universe. A team of researchers at the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute led by Christopher Carothers, Director of the institute’s Center for Computational Innovations described for The Platform how True North is finding a new life as a lightweight snap-in on each node that can take in sensor data from the many components that are prone to failure inside, say for example, an 50,000 dense-node supercomputer ( like this one coming online in 2018 at Argonne National Lab) and alert administrators (and the scheduler) of potential failures This can minimize downtime and more important, allow for the scheduler to route around where the possible failures lie, thus shutting down only part of a system versus …
The National Academy of Sciences (NAS) is a private, nonprofit organization of the country’s leading researchers. I love when researchers tell me about any unexplainable phenomenon; in their faces there is always a mix of excitement, frustration and hope for finding the solution; maybe someday, somewhere they will imagine the solution (maybe some morning while singing in the shower).
The human societies had put their weight behind the politics of manhood in the past only in order to harness male sexuality towards reproduction as much as possible in order to achieve adequate people to fill those societies — something not possible in the natural scheme of things.
State policy has influenced the funding of public works and science for thousands of years, dating at least from the time of the Mohists , who inspired the study of logic during the period of the Hundred Schools of Thought , and the …
