A Simple And Accurate Optical Instrument For Characterizing Optical Properties Of A Material

Light is made of electromagnetic waves, which are composed of a time-varying electric field and time-varying magnetic field. The time-varying electric field can be described as the oscillation behavior of the light waves. The electric field of a coherent light […]

Smart Homes And Their Energy Saving Potential

There is no definite date for the origin of smart homes. The very first projects might date back to the 1930s, when pools were equipped with an automatic vacuum system. Also, there is no standard and unified definition for smart […]

Bees That Rob Honey from Their Neighbors Also Pick Up Dangerous Parasitic Mites

Reports over the last few decades have alerted the public to the ongoing health challenges facing honey bees, our planet’s most economically important pollinator. The parasitic mite Varroa destructor is a major source of colony losses, and scientists have spent […]

The Least Populated State In The US

Out of the 50 states in the United States of America, which state is the least populated? The least populated state is Wyoming, which can be found in the northwestern United States. Wyoming’s population is slightly more than half of […]

Many Youngsters Suffer From Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder

A study suggests that one in 13 adolescents in England develops post-traumatic stress disorder before their 18th birthday. When one hears of post-traumatic stress disorder, many initially think of soldiers and war missions, but probably not of children and adolescents. […]

Integration Of Electrochemiluminescence And Nanotechnology For The Sensitive Detection Of Haptoglobin: One Biomarker For Multiple Diseases

Haptoglobin (Hp) plays an important part in the binding and transporting of hemoglobin. The plasma concentration of Hp increases several-fold in carcinoma, tissue necrosis, coronary artery, schizophrenia, and in the event of an inflammatory stimulus such as infection, injury, or […]

The Role Smell Plays In Sexual Arousal

Human olfaction is fairly sophisticated and sensitive. We can most likely detect approximately one trillion different odorants compared to several million colors and a half million different tones, and we are able to detect odors at very low concentrations, (e.g., […]

Labeled Eye Diagram

The human eye is composed of many different parts that work together to interpret the world around us. What you want to interpret as a major part of the human eye is somewhat up to the individual, but in general […]

Machine Learning Algorithms Can Predict Psychosis With Impressive Accuracy

Machine learning techniques have been experimented with to assist the diagnosis of conditions like autism and epilepsy. Now, forms of psychosis-like schizophrenia can be added to that list. Recently, researchers from Harvard University and Emory University developed a machine learning-based […]

The Existence of Complex Life In The Universe May Be Rarer Than Previously Thought

“Two possibilities exist: either we are alone in the universe or we are not. Both are equally terrifying.” – Arthur C. Clarke Ever since humans turned their collective eye to the heavens we have pondered the question “are we alone […]
