Researchers Studying Soccer Players’ Injury Recovery|Humor

COLUMBUS, OH – Researchers at the Cleveland Clinic are studying soccer players around the world for their unique ability to recover quickly from injury. “Soccer players have a totally unique physiology in that when they get hurt, which happens a lot, they can recovery in a very short time, sometimes instantly” said lead researcher at […]

Researchers boost efficiency and stability of optical rectennas

Researchers boost efficiency and stability of optical rectennas

Top Story The research team that announced the first optical rectenna in 2015 is now reporting a twofold efficiency improvement in the devices — and a switch to air-stable diode materials. The improvements could allow the rectennas — which convert electromagnetic fields at optical frequencies directly to electrical current — to operate low-power devices such […]

Researchers discover higher environmental impact from cookstove emissions

Researchers discover higher environmental impact from cookstove emissions

Top Story According to new quantitative research findings, particulate emissions from cookstoves in India have been underestimated. Researchers spent 20 days running a series of tests in Raipur, a city in central India, where more than three-quarters of the families use cookstoves to prepare their meals. Cookstoves are a central part of millions of homes […]

Researchers develop graphene nano 'tweezers' that can grab individual biomolecules

[unable to retrieve full-text content] Full Text: Researchers have found yet another remarkable use for the wonder material graphene — tiny electronic “tweezers” that can grab biomolecules floating in water with incredible efficiency. This capability could lead to a revolutionary handheld disease diagnostic system that could be run on a smartphone. Graphene, a material made […]

Researchers pin down one source of a potent greenhouse gas

Researchers pin down one source of a potent greenhouse gas

Top Story A study of a Lake Erie wetland suggests that scientists have vastly underestimated the number of places methane-producing microbes can survive and, as a result, today’s global climate models may be misjudging the amount of methane being released into the atmosphere. The researchers describe the discovery of the first known methane-producing microbe that […]
