Sympathy Of Nanoparticles With Primary Astrocytes Leads To Neurotoxicity

Nanoscience and nanotechnology offer extremely optimistic possibilities to be applied in various disciplines of science and technology. Nobel laureate Richard Feynman laid the foundation for nanotechnology with his famous lecture, “There’s Plenty of Room at the Bottom,” at the California […]

Volcanoes: Large Metal Emitters

Sulfur dioxide (SO2) and halogens (HCl, HF, HBr) are the most abundant acidic species in volcanic plumes, affecting public health and forming acid rain downwind quiescent volcanoes which can kill vegetation and crops like at Masaya volcano in Nicaragua (Delmelle […]

Utilizing Laser Light To Create A Novel Sound Laser

Yale scientists have created a new device that uses laser light to access sound waves and harnessed such light sound interactions to create a new type of “sound laser.” Acoustic wave devices are perhaps the unsung heroes of modern technologies. […]

Mental Health Is More Than Not Being Ill

Australian researchers believe that mental well-being and illnesses such as depression or anxiety are separate constructs. They came to this conclusion after testing the processing of emotions in twins. Health is the state of physical, mental, and social well-being and […]

HIAR: A Novel Angiogenesis Promoting Protein Induced By Hypoxia In Mammary CAFs

Breast cancer is the most frequent cancer type among women. According to the World Health Organization, it is estimated that in 2018, 627,000 women succumbed to the disease. The progression of breast cancer is orchestrated by a multitude of cell […]

Study On The Ecological Diversity And Health Of Online News

News coverage can be dominated by just a few players, even in developed countries with an active free press. This dominance can lead to a reduction in topical and community diversity. Ownership structures might further limit coverage by implicitly or […]

Circuit QED Controlled To Implement Quantum Computers

Quantum computers spare no efforts to offer the superior promise of performing complex and unimaginable problems, which are far beyond the reach of any classical computers known at present, in a reasonable time with high accuracy. The new approach for […]

Increased PPAR-γ Expression To Help Regulate Obesity And Overweight

Accordingly to the World Health Organization (WHO), almost 2 billion adults were overweight in 2016. Of these, over 650 million were obese. Clearly, overweight and obesity have become a global emergency with serious health concerns for affected individuals. Indeed, being […]

Is Natural Recovery Of A Tropical Forest In An Anthropogenic Savanna Possible?

Urbanization, timber exploitation, and the need for farmland has led to deforestation in Central Africa. A widespread technique to clear the dense vegetation is intentional burning. Not only does this prepare the land for farming, but it also attracts animals […]

What Do Brakes, Basketball Shoes, And Earthquakes Have In Common?

The squeaking sound that basketball players produce as their shoes slide over the floor is a consequence of stick-slip motion: as the basketball shoe successively sticks and slips at a high frequency and over a short distance, the interface periodically […]
