Vehicle to Grid Storage and the Future of Electric Vehicles Vehicle to Grid Storage and the Future of Electric Vehicles
[ May 7, 2011 - Share ]
Renewable energy sources like solar and wind only generate electricity when the wind blows or the sun is out and that isn't always when customers need power. Batteries large enough to hold megawatts of electricity are prohibitively expensive but another potential source of battery storage is fast emerging: electric vehicles
Seawater Bucket Seawater Bucket
[ May 7, 2011 - Share ]
Life is incredibly complex. It is wrong to assume that what you can easily see is all there is. There is a plethora of microscopic life. From a bucket of seawater, scientists have unlocked information that may lead to a deeper understanding of organisms as different as coral reefs and human disease. By analyzing genomes of a tiny, single-celled marine animal, they have demonstrated a possible way to address diverse questions such as how diseased cells differ from neighboring healthy cells and what it is about some Antarctic algae that allows them to live in warming waters while other algae die out
Chimps Are Self Aware Chimps Are Self Aware
[ May 7, 2011 - Share ]
Chimpanzees are self-aware and can anticipate the impact of their actions on the environment around them, an ability once thought to be uniquely human, according to a study released Wednesday. The findings, reported in the Proceedings of the Royal Society B, challenge assumptions about the boundary between human and non-human, and shed light on the evolutionary origins of consciousness, the researchers said
Study Finds Sea-Level Rise Likely on West Coast Study Finds Sea-Level Rise Likely on West Coast
[ May 7, 2011 - Share ]
For the last few decades, sea levels of the eastern North Pacific Ocean along the west coast of North America have remained remarkably steady as other sea levels rise around the world. That is due to the dominance of cold surface waters along the coast. According to a new study from the University of California (UC) San Diego, the cold waters on the coast will give way to warmer waters beginning this decade, which will lead to accelerated sea-level rise.
The Eye Versus the Camera The Eye Versus the Camera
[ May 7, 2011 - Share ]
Which is better: the camera or the eye (assuming normal eyesight). Visual perception is the ability to interpret information and surroundings from the effects of visible light reaching the eye. A camera merely records whatever image it receives. The human eye long ago solved a problem common to both digital and film cameras: how to get good contrast in an image while also capturing faint detail
Climate change to hit American West water supply Climate change to hit American West water supply
[ Apr 26, 2011 - Share ]
Climate change could cut water flow in some of the American West's biggest river basins -- including the Rio Grande and the Colorado -- by up to 20 percent this century, the Interior Department reported on Monday
Can Wasps Squash The Stink Bug Plague Can Wasps Squash The Stink Bug Plague
[ Apr 26, 2011 - Share ]
Home is where the heart is. It's also probably where a lot of stink bugs are right now, crawling out from cracks and crevices. They were somehow introduced into Allentown, Pa. from Asia in the 1990s, and have been spreading ever since, reaching seemingly plague-like proportions in the mid-Atlantic states. But an experiment is underway to re-introduce the stink bug to its mortal enemy: a parasitic Asian wasp
Virus Power Virus Power
[ Apr 26, 2011 - Share ]
A virus is a small agent that can replicate only inside the living cells of organisms. Most viruses are too small to be seen directly with a light microscope. The shapes of viruses range from simple helical and icosahedral forms to more complex structures. The average virus is about one one-hundredth the size of the average bacterium. Researchers at MIT have found a way to make significant improvements to the power-conversion efficiency of solar cells by enlisting the services of tiny viruses to perform detailed assembly work at the microscopic level. In a solar cell, sunlight hits a light-harvesting material, causing it to release electrons that can be harnessed to produce an electric current.
Sunlight and Clouds Sunlight and Clouds
[ Apr 25, 2011 - Share ]
A cloud is a visible mass of water droplets or frozen ice crystals suspended in the Earth's atmosphere above the surface of the Earth or other planetary body. On a cloudy day the surface under the clouds appears darker and cooler. Atmospheric scientists trying to pin down how clouds curb the amount of sunlight available to warm the earth have found that it depends on the wavelength of sunlight being measured. This unexpected result will help researchers improve how they portray clouds in climate models
Where do Squamous Cell Cancers Come From Where do Squamous Cell Cancers Come From
[ Apr 25, 2011 - Share ]
Squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) is a type of cancer that occurs in multiple organs. It is a malignant tumor composed of squamous epithelium (squamous-cell differentiation). The cancer can affect many parts of the body including the skin, lung, bladder, and sex organs. A new study from researchers at the University of California in Los Angeles (UCLA) has found that the origin of SCC is hair follicle stem cells. This finding may lead to new strategies to treat or prevent this terrible disease
Pesticides tied to lower IQ in children Pesticides tied to lower IQ in children
[ Apr 25, 2011 - Share ]
Children exposed in the womb to substantial levels of neurotoxic pesticides have somewhat lower IQs by the time they enter school than do kids with virtually no exposure. A trio of studies screened women for compounds in blood or urine that mark exposure to organophosphate pesticides such as chlorpyrifos, diazinon and malathion
Brown Recluse Spider: Range Could Expand in N. America With Changing Climate Brown Recluse Spider: Range Could Expand in N. America With Changing Climate
[ Apr 25, 2011 - Share ]
ScienceDaily (Apr. 23, 2011) One of the most feared spiders in North America is the subject a new study that aims to predict its distribution and how that distribution may be affected by climate changes. When provoked, the spider, commonly known as the brown recluse (Loxosceles reclusa), injects powerful venom that can kill the tissues at the site of the bite. This can lead to a painful deep sore and occasional scarring

New York state officials chose Earth Day on Friday to announce purchase of a large tract of land in Long Island's pine barrens as a preserve for hikers and other naturalists and a source for pure drinking water

Chesapeake Energy has stemmed the flow of leaking drilling fluids from a natural gas well that suffered a blow-out late on Tuesday in Pennsylvania and prompted the company to suspend a controversial gas production technique in the state
