A study led by Prof. Juan Casado, from the Department of Physical Chemistry of the UMA, in collaboration with the University of Oregon (U.S.A.) and Osaka (Japan), which has proved that lone pair electrons that characterize sulfur atom can also repel unpaired or itinerant electrons that are present in their environment."This study evidences that the conventional conciliatory behavior of sulfur -electron donor- also shows a hostile side", explains the researcher from the UMA, who adds that these findings demonstrate that sulfur, under some circumstances, can also cause "magnetic repulsion".According to this expert, the diradical molecules (a molecular species with two electrons occupying two "degenerated" molecular orbitals) used in the study -more stable, functional and durable- are critically important in chemistry, as well as in other sciences.For instance, they are associated with the chemical reactivity in combustion or are present in the persistence cycles of tropospheric ozone, and, also, in the future, they will be part of "magnetic plastic".The results of this research have been published in the magazine "Nature Chemistry".In October, the Professor of Physical Chemistry of the UMA Juan Casado Cordón, its main author, was awarded the "Seniors Research Excellence Award" by the Spanish Royal Society of Chemistry (RSEQ) in recognition of his outstanding scientific activity in the last ten years.

Mazda's rotary engine is one of those things that you'd be easily forgiven for not understanding unless you were a massive fan of the RX-7 or RX-8.It's so utterly different than a traditional reciprocating piston engine that it can often help to have some kind of visual aid when explaining it.That's where this video from Engineering Explained comes in handy.Jason Fenske -- the definitely-older-than-he-looks host of the popular YouTube channel -- got his hands on an ingenious 3D-printed model of Mazda's 13B rotary engine, and in the video that he published on Thursday, he walks us through the unique way that the rotary or Wankel engine turns gasoline into horsepower.One of the most interesting aspects of the rotary engine design -- apart from its somewhat sordid history -- is how it manages to do everything that a four-stroke piston engine does, but in a much more compact size and with significantly fewer moving parts.A rotary engine is a four-stroke engine like you probably have in your car.
Amazon isn’t the only company expanding its footprint on the U.S. Apple announced a series of expansions in the U.S., including the location of its massive second campus which is set to be Austin, Texas.Apple announced earlier in the year that it would be launching a second major campus in the U.S., but at the time it didn’t announce the location of it.Now, not only do we know that it will be located in Austin, but we also know that the company will be spending $1 billion to get it up and running.Eventually, the Austin campus will be second in size only to the company’s headquarters in Cupertino, California.In fact, the new 133-acre campus is expected to make Apple the largest private employer in Austin and will accommodate 5,000 employees at first, with an ultimate total capacity of 15,000.The new office will focus on a number of different facets of the company’s business, including “engineering, R, operations, finance, sales, and customer support.”
Swedish Strawbees has in few years gone from a leksaksbolag to a edtechbolag.the Company sells digital tools to the schools to teach children creative thinking and understand the engineering, programming, and sustainability.”Our solution resembles very much the Lego, with a construction system and programming.the Difference is that we cost a quarter as much.It makes us very interesting for the markets that would otherwise not be able to afford Lego, such as Africa, Southeast asia and south America”, his co-founder Erik Bergelin had told Di Digital.Now Strawbees secured an investment of sek 20 million from the Tommy jacobson's investment company to the Zenith.
Researchers have developed genetically modified pigs that are protected from classical swine fever virus (CSFV), according to a study published December 13 in the open-access journal PLOS Pathogens by Hongsheng Ouyang of Jilin University, and colleagues.CSFV is responsible for a highly contagious, often fatal disease that causes significant economic losses.To address this challenge, Ouyang and colleagues generated CSFV-resistant pigs by combining a gene-editing tool called CRISPR/Cas9 with RNA interference (RNAi), a technique that silences gene expression.The researchers demonstrated that these pigs could effectively limit the replication of CSFV and reduce CSFV-associated clinical signs and mortality.Moreover, disease resistance could be stably transmitted to first-generation offspring.Currently, the researchers are conducting long-term studies to monitor the safety and effectiveness of this approach as these animals age.
PULLMAN, Wash. - A Washington State University research team has uncovered significant and previously unknown vulnerabilities in high-performance computer chips that could lead to failures in modern electronics.The researchers found they could damage the on-chip communications system and shorten the lifetime of the whole computer chip significantly by deliberately adding malicious workload.Led by Partha Pande, assistant professor in the School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, they reported on the work during the recent 2018 IEEE/ACM International Symposium on Networks-on-Chip.Researchers have been working to understand the vulnerabilities of computer chips as a way to prevent malicious attacks on the electronics that make up everyday life.Some consumer electronics vendors, such as Apple and Samsung, have been accused of exploiting vulnerabilities in their own electronics and sending software updates that intentionally slow down earlier phone models to encourage consumers to purchase new products."The communications system is the glue that holds everything together," said Pande.
A spectacular new hydrothermal vent field, named JaichMatt, has been discovered during an expedition aboard Schmidt Ocean Institute's R/V Falkor.The vents were identified using Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institution's (MBARI) Dorado autonomous underwater vehicle to conduct exploratory seafloor surveys with one meter lateral resolution.Simultaneously, MBARI's new Low Altitude Survey System was used from Schmidt Ocean Institute's remotely operated vehicle SuBastian to map the previously discovered Auka Vent field at centimeter scale resolution using co-located multibeam sonar, scanning laser Lidar, and stereo photography.The biological communities and the geological and geochemical characteristics of these vent fields were then explored and sampled using ROV SuBastian.Robert Zierenberg from University of California Davis, Victoria Orphan from California Institute of Technology, and David Caress from MBARI, along with scientists from Oregon State University, the Universidad Autónoma de Baja California, the Centro de Investigación Científica y de Educación Superior de Ensenada (CICESE), and the Scripps Institution of Oceanography, demonstrated the multi-disciplinary use of submarine robotics while investigating an area of unique geologic activity where submarine volcanism in heavily sedimented basins results in high temperature venting with unusual chemistry and geology.The nested-scale mapping approach allowed the team to efficiently progress from large scale exploratory seafloor coverage to precision targeted sampling on and around the vents.

The work of several Mount Sinai researchers who analyze brain genomics data as part of the PsychENCODE Consortium, a collective established in 2015 by the National Institutes of Health (NIH), will be highlighted in four scientific papers to be published online December 13 in the journal Science as part of a special issue focused on big data.The Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai (ISMMS) is one of the lead sites associated with the PsychENCODE Consortium, a collaboration among NIH grantees that aims to accelerate discovery of non-coding functional genomic elements (components of an organism's DNA that do not encode protein sequences) and epigenetic modifications (reversible modifications on a cell's DNA or histones that affect gene expression without altering the DNA sequence) as they relate to gene expression patterns in the human brain and to understand the molecular pathophysiology of mental illness, particularly autism spectrum disorder, bipolar disorder, and schizophrenia.Having analyzed more than 2,000 normal and disease-affected brains to date, the Consortium is publishing some of its initial findings in the December issue of Science, with multiple collaborative contributions by investigators from ISMMS, including laboratories from The Friedman Brain Institute and the Seaver Autism Center for Research and Treatment.Below are descriptions of the studies that, with significant contributions by researchers from the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, will be published in the journal:Study Title: Neuron-specific signatures in the chromosomal connectome associated with schizophrenia riskSchahram Akbarian, MD, PhD, Professor of Psychiatry and Neuroscience
CAMBRIDGE, MA -- MIT researchers have invented a way to fabricate nanoscale 3-D objects of nearly any shape."It's a way of putting nearly any kind of material into a 3-D pattern with nanoscale precision," says Edward Boyden, an associate professor of biological engineering and of brain and cognitive sciences at MIT.Using the new technique, the researchers can create any shape and structure they want by patterning a polymer scaffold with a laser.The technique uses equipment that many biology and materials science labs already have, making it widely accessible for researchers who want to try it.Existing techniques for creating nanostructures are limited in what they can accomplish.Etching patterns onto a surface with light can produce 2-D nanostructures but doesn't work for 3-D structures.
Slimy, hard-to-clean bacterial mats called biofilms cause problems ranging from medical infections to clogged drains and fouled industrial equipment.By looking at the films from a mechanical engineering perspective, as well as a biological one, the researchers showed that water penetrating the junction between biofilms and surfaces, coupled with gentle peeling, can result in immaculate removals.That outcome contrasts with traditionally ineffective methods of scraping or mechanically dislodging biofilms, which sometimes leave behind still-adhered patches that regrow and re-contaminate."We have discovered an easy and effective way to remove nasty biofilms from a variety of surfaces," said Jing Yan, an associate research scholar working jointly in the Princeton labs of Howard Stone, the Donald R. Dixon '69 and Elizabeth W. Dixon Professor of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering; and Bonnie Bassler, the Squibb Professor of Molecular Biology and Howard Hughes Medical Institute Investigator.The work, bridging molecular biology, materials science and mechanical engineering, took advantage of the collaborative research communities between molecular biology and engineering.Yan is the co-lead author of the paper describing the results, published Oct. 8 in Advanced Materials, along with Alexis Moreau, who was a visiting student in Stone's lab and is now back at the University of Montpellier in France.
BROOKLYN, New York, Thursday, December 13, 2018 - Machine learning algorithms can predict stock market fluctuations, control complex manufacturing processes, enable navigation for robots and driverless vehicles, and much more.Now, researchers at the NYU Tandon School of Engineering are tapping a new set of capabilities in this field of artificial intelligence, combining artificial neural networks with infrared thermal imaging to control and interpret chemical reactions with precision and speed that far outpace conventional methods.More innovative still is the fact that this technique was developed and tested on novel microreactors that allow chemical discoveries to take place quickly and with far less environmental waste than standard large-scale reactions."This system can reduce the decision-making process about certain chemical manufacturing processes from one year to a matter of weeks, saving tons of chemical waste and energy in the process," said Ryan Hartman, an assistant professor of chemical and biomolecular engineering at NYU Tandon and lead author of a paper detailing the method in the journal Computers & Chemical Engineering.Last year, Hartman introduced a new class of miniaturized chemical reactors that brings reactions traditionally carried out in large-batch reactors with up to 100 liters of chemicals down to the microscale, using just microliters of fluid - a few small drops.These microfluidic reactors are useful for analyzing catalysts for manufacturing or discovering compounds and studying interactions in drug development, and they promise to reduce waste, speed innovation, and improve the safety of chemical research.
The National Science Foundation (NSF) has announced a new cooperative agreement with Internet2, a nonprofit computer networking consortium, to build partnerships with commercial cloud computing providers and support science applications in new and more effective uses of cloud computing capabilities.The NSF-funded Internet2 project, Exploring Clouds for Acceleration of Science (E-CAS), will investigate the viability of commercial clouds as an option for leading-edge research computing and computational science supporting a range of academic disciplines.Amazon Web Services and Google Cloud Platform have signed on as the initial cloud computing providers in this endeavor."The E-CAS project has the potential to not only demonstrate the effectiveness of current commercial cloud computing services in supporting a range of applications that are important to the science and engineering research communities, but also to enable these communities to leverage the innovative technologies and capabilities to significantly accelerate scientific discoveries," said Manish Parashar, director of NSF's Office of Advanced Cyberinfrastructure.NSF has pledged $3 million for a two-phased approach to be managed by Internet2 and is expected to produce a deeper understanding of the use of cloud computing in accelerating scientific discoveries."Internet2 looks forward to supporting NSF's vision as part of our ongoing commitment to working with the research and education community and cloud computing providers to accelerate time-to-science, and to facilitate discovery and sharing of ideas," said Internet2 President and CEO Howard Pfeffer.
There are only a few so-called "heaters" in the world - special facilities which create artificial plasma processes in the upper atmosphere by heating them.Senior Research Associate of the Near Space Research Lab Vladimir Frolov explains, "There are currently three heating stands in the world.One is in Russia, it's called SURA; another, EISCAT-Heater, is near Tromsø in Norway; and the third, HAARP, is in Alaska in the United States."Using these devices, researchers create plasma disturbances in the ionosphere and study their characteristics."Currently, we use ionosondes of vertical and oblique sounding, a coherent radar, and incoherent scatter radars.Furthermore, ionosphere sounding is also performed by signals of low orbit and high orbit Earth satellites.
Millions of new memory cells could be part of a computer chip and provide that speed and energy savings, thanks to the discovery of a previously unobserved functionality in a material called molybdenum ditelluride.The two-dimensional material stacks into multiple layers to build a memory cell.One of these next-generation possibilities is resistive random access memory, or RRAM for short.In RRAM, an electrical current is typically driven through a memory cell made up of stacked materials, creating a change in resistance that records data as 0s and 1s in memory.The sequence of 0s and 1s among memory cells identifies pieces of information that a computer reads to perform a function and then store into memory again."Because less power is needed for these resistive states to change, a battery could last longer," Appenzeller said.
