As heartburn may also be a symptom of ischemic heart disease, it is important that doctors bear this in mind and do not jump to a GERD diagnosis too rapidly.
Mice that grew the most spines developed the strongest preference for returning to the enclosure where they received cocaine.
The GMO debate has gone main stream and is becoming a very black and white issue.
"I believe if he died here, he could still be alive," said Dr. Parnia recently to Germany's Der Spiegel magazine. "We'd cool him down, pump oxygen to the tissues ... clinically dead, he could then be cared for by the cardiologist. He would make
Asian jumping lice and a bacteria called C. liberibacter which the lice carry have been devastating Florida’s Orange crops since 2005, but scientists have found a solution!
Left up to Tomás Saraceno, the buildings of the future might look a lot like kites. Not just any kite, either.
Warp-drive technology, a form of "faster than light" travel popularized by TV's "Star Trek," could be bolstered by the physics of quantum thrusters — another science-fiction idea made plausible by modern science.
DARPA issues a solicitation, they are looking for researchers who can develop the particular ability the solicitation calls for. Researchers respond with their ideas, and DARPA awards funding to the most promising proposals.
MERS is a viral respiratory illness that was first reported in Saudi Arabia in 2012.
Imagine these formerly dumb systems gone smart: a roof that announces when it’s about to spring a leak; a garden that monitors moisture on its own and applies just the right amount of water when it’s needed;
Is solar the one – and is research and development the way to make it happen?
Ever heard of "shift work disorder?"
Imagine having an energy storage device that stores as much energy as a conventional battery, yet, can be charged 100 to 1000 times faster.
Iron carbonyl complexes are used in a large number of chemical reactions and industrial processes, such as light-induced water reduction or catalytic carbon monoxide removal from exhaust gases. Their catalytic activity is a result of rapid formation
deep cycle battery technology sucks. The batteries suck, the chemicals suck, the weight sucks and the cost sucks. There is absolutely nothing to like about batteries unless you enjoy hulking around with heavy, useless objects.
Being such a fascinating material lots of people are interested in it and it has become something of a mystery that is generally thought of as being something only an expensive lab can produce.
For the past four years, Preco has been integrating ultra capacitors into custom modules for the material handling, automotive and military markets.
Ere many generations pass, our machinery will be driven by a power obtainable at any point of the universe. Throughout space there is energy. -- Nikola Tesla, 1892
It is an anticlimax, to say the least. Mere weeks before its official start, the genomics X Prize – intended to spur a revolution in fast, cheap and accurate human-genome sequencing – has been abruptly cancelled
The cost of solar power has been dropping fast! You can see on this very important graph that the reduction in cost has even accelerated lately, making clean power from the sun more cost-competitive with fossil fuels.
When Joe lived back on Earth, it felt like the years were flying by.
THINK you've got game? Try this on for size: a sensor-laden sleeve promises to improve basketball players' shooting skills by tracking their arm movements and calculating the arc of their shots.
JAPAN'S beleaguered Fukushima Daiichi nuclear facility made headlines again this week, when some 305 tonnes of radioactive water leaked from a storage tank at the complex.
The calls are getting louder. Even Russia, Syria's main ally, is now urging the Syrian government to allow weapons inspectors to investigate the site of Wednesday's alleged chemical attack on the suburbs of Damascus, .......
Dutch researchers reported Tuesday the achievement of some de-facto “mind reading” using an MRI scan and a mathematical model.
In Brazil, the pizza chain is embedding DVDs with chemicals that release a pizza smell from the DVD player when it heats up.
"It would take an elephant, balanced on a pencil, to break through a sheet of graphene the thickness of Saran Wrap," James Hone, a professor of engineering at Columbia University, said in a 2008 report on graphene.
Could we soon be reading people's MINDS? Software uses brain scans to identify exactly what people are looking at
The three blind mice might not be so anymore. Researchers restored sight to mice through a new prosthetic that they say could lead to the same in millions of blind people across the globe, according to a new study, published in the journal Proceeding
