Think back to your first childhood beach vacation. Can you recall the color of your bathing suit, the softness of the sand, or the excitement of your first swim in the ocean? Early memories such as this often arise as faded snapshots,
Vitamin B-complex contains 8 different vitamins, and all of them are vital for your health. But three of them — B6, B12, and folic acid (B9) — are especially critical for your brain. Studies have shown that these vitamins may prevent mental decline,
In addition to selectivity, what's remarkable about the USC team's result is the quality of the membrane they were able to craft on such a small scale. The membrane is constructed on the surface of a porous aluminum oxide support. Flakes of graphen
A breakthrough in genetics – described as “jaw-dropping” by one Nobel scientist –
When Martin Krzywinski took a systems administrator job at Canada’s Michael Smith Genome Center, he didn’t plan on becoming a pioneer of 21st century biological data visualization.
With the $45,000 prize, the team hopes to continue exploring the device's possibilities.
But Fukushima’s designs are from General Electric (some two dozen similar reactors are licensed in the US). At least four explosions have rocked the site. One might have involved nuclear fission. Three cores have melted into the ground. Massive quant
A few months ago, the launch of our Orajuvenate ozonated jojoba oil was a huge success. Readers leaped at the chance to replace their toothpaste and switch to an ozonated substance (actually a liquid plant-based wax) that helps deliver benefits of oz
Engineers with the Indian Space research Organisation prepare the country’s first Mars probe, the Mars Orbiter Mission, for its fall 2013 launch toward the Red Planet.
Engineers from universities in Beijing and Princeton University calculated the amount of friction methods of moving the stones would produce.
Japan’s automakers are faced with a population that cares less about driving and can’t afford to buy — let alone insure and park — a car to begin with. Toyota’s solution?
Smartphones come in all shapes and sizes these days, from phablets to curved screens.
Digital wallets are one of those perennial tech promises that have never quite materialized.
NASA’s Kepler mission is over, but the data that it collected is still being studied by astronomers all over the world.
There's a new quadrotor out there, one which defies all categorization. All at once, it can fly, roll across the ground and sail along the water.
Ever wonder what the best time is to drink your coffee?
It's yet another step toward creating lifelike, mind-controlled prosthetics for those who have lost use of their limbs.
Google has issued a statement (finally?) about its months’-long mystery barge project.
The sliding-cube model simplifies the development of self-assembly algorithms, but the robots that implement them tend to be much more complex devices. Rus' group, for instance, previously developed a modular robot called the Molecule, which consist
At first sight Mawson's story seems to be another such tale - starvation combined with a lack of some vital nutrient. In fact, Mawson's description of his symptoms is an almost textbook description of vitamin A overdose - probably from eating dog l
Yet other scientists with equally impressive credentials are not so sure and are increasingly willing to consider a very different analogy – namely that the relationship of consciousness to the brain may be less like the relationship of the generator
If you were to look at people’s brains before they began a meditation practice, you would likely see strong neural connections within the Me Center and between the Me Center and the bodily sensation/fear centers of the brain. This means that whenev
In the winter of 1913, Jung began writing down the fantasies and dreams that would later be the focus of The Red Book (Shamdasani, 2009). This was a very difficult period in Jung’s life. World events, misalignment between professional expectations an
Superconducting generators have already been demonstrated to exhibit power densities in the range of turbine engines thus validating the feasibility of future ultra lightweight machines for airborne applications.
If you want to see the future of renewable energy in the U.S., you should check out the large container sitting next to a nondescript office building off the I-95 corridor in Maryland.
Colloidal silver, also called silver water, is a colloid consisting of silver particles suspending in a liquid (usually demineralized water).
The eyes of millions of shoppers are to be scanned at tills across the UK in a new way of targeting adverts at specific groups of customers.
Very small things can make a really big impression, if you look closely enough.
The new detection should provide a sort of baseline that will aid future efforts to measure B-modes produced by gravitational waves, which in turn could reveal a great deal about how our universe grew in its earliest moments, researchers said.
Ultrasound has become routine during pregnancy over the last 3 decades. It is assumed to be safe, though safety was never investigated. Research is now finally being done, and the results are dismal, demonstrating clear and permanent brain damage, as
