As oxygen decreases, the cells switch to glycolysis to produce their energy units, called ATP. Glycolysis is a drastically less efficient way to obtain energy, and so the cancer cells must work even harder to obtain even more food, specifically gluc
But contrary to these concerns, China has continued to export a wide range of equipment including electric multiple units, urban rail vehicles, steam locomotives, large road maintenance equipment to many countries such as Russia, Australia, Brazil, I
A new birth control procedure shows promising signs of becoming another viable option for people who don’t want children now, but may want them some day.
One of the most common items heard from sports newscasters and sports talk radio personalities when talking about the topic of Junior Seau's suicidality has been this kind of comment, "All those who knew him said he has been so cheerful in recent w
Just snap a bunch of pictures of the object you want to reproduce from different angles, and the app, cleverly named 123D Catch, creates a 3-D rendering automatically.
Physicists, working from the University of Science and Technology of China in Shanghai, have again taken advantage of quantum entanglement moving an object from one place to another without ever moving in the space between.
The U.S. military Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) has seen the future, and the future is bugs. Bionic bugs.
DARPA is working hard to establish an array of cybernetic insects. The program, "Hybrid Insect Micro Electromechanical Sy
An earthquake in the Indian Ocean off the coast of Sumatra, Indonesia on 11th April was unusually powerful, at magnitude 8.6, for a “strike-slip” type of quake, and a new analysis of the earthquake and its 8.2 magnitude after-shock has proposed that
While we often think of memory as a way of preserving the essential idea of who we are, little thought is given to the importance of forgetting to our wellbeing, whether what we forget belongs in the "horrible memories department" or just reflects th
Sonic Notify uses sound waves to let your smart phone pull up everything from coupons to music videos.
eventually emerge either as unchanged 582nm photons or as a pair of entangled photons with about twice the wavelength (about 1060nm). This entangled pair don't have quite the same wavelength and so all three types of photon can be easily separated
PopSci reported almost a month ago that the European Space Agency had lost contact with its flagship Earth-observing satellite. Today, we must relay with heavy hearts that Envisat has been declared dead on orbit. The ESA will suspend recovery efforts
Some seizures briefly incapacitate, while other seizures can be deadly. Knowing the difference is obviously of grave importance, but figuring out which is which is difficult.
The problems that come with bipolar disorder are well-known, however, some people with the condition feel lucky to have it.
The pleasurable feeling known as "runner's high" that's triggered by aerobic exercise may have played a role in the evolution of humans' ability to run long distances, a new study suggests.

In sports, on a game show, or just on the job, what causes people to choke when the stakes are high?
Maybe you watched Star Trek IV and thought the idea of having a whale tank made from transparent aluminum to be one of those far fetched sci-fi gimmicks. But would you be surprised to find out that at the time the movie was made, that particular mate
The first vehicles to use the system are expected next year. Vehicles are already in development that will be capable of using the new system. The charging solution is titled "DC Fast Charging with a Combined Charging System” or Combined Charging Sy
commonly occurring large chromosomal deletions that are seen in many cancer types contain areas harboring multiple functionally linked genes whose loss, they posit, confers a survival advantage on growing tumors.
A copying error appears to be responsible for critical features of the human brain that distinguish us from our closest primate kin, new research finds.
Dentists may soon be getting a potent new weapons with which to wage the global fight against cavities.
In March 1966, Eugene Smith, an engineer with Northrop Space Laboratories in Hawthorne, California, presented a paper outlining a piloted Eros flyby mission at the Third Space Congress in Cocoa, Florida.
You see them in every grocery store and home center – those funny-looking curly compact fluorescent lights (CFLs) that are rapidly replacing the old round bulbs.
Scientists at Washington State University are now confirming once again what natural health experts have known for years — garlic fights one of the most common food-borne illnesses much more effectively than antibiotics.
The densest waters of Antarctica have reduced dramatically over recent decades, in part due to man-made impacts on the climate, Australian scientists said Friday.
Not only were the fibers were found to self-assemble between the electrodes when triggered by a flash of light, but they are also able to transport current densities approaching that of copper wire. These light and flexible "supramolecular” structur
