Infectious disease expert warns of spread of Rocky Mountain spotted fever

...ks in all patients' yards. Ticks were found in the cracks of stucco walls on patients' homes, in crawl spaces under these homes and on furniture placed outside for children and pets. All patients owned and had come in contact with dogs with the infected ticks. Four of the patients had a recent history of ti...

T-rays: New imaging technology spotlighted by American Chemical Society

...ray sensing and imaging technology, which can spot cracks in space shuttle foam, see biological agents through a sealed envelope and detect tumors without harmful radiation, was the focus of a recent symposium at the national meeting of the American Chemical Society. The session was organized and chaired b...

Value of services performed by insects tops $57 billion in US

... many places - crop pollination, for example - the cracks in the infrastructure are already showing," says Vaughn. Using published data, Losey and Vaughan compared the values of each service at current levels of function to theoretical levels if these serves were absent. For wildlife nutrition, the researc...

Carnegie Mellon researchers discover new cell properties

... "The mutant HGPS lamina is like an egg shell that cracks when excessive pressure or force is exerted against it," Dahl said. "By contrast, normal lamina resembles the rubbery outer shell of a racquetball, which does not break under stress or force but can assume its original shape even after hard play." T...

Ring-like formations in drying DNA drops could affect hybridization studies

...he rim inward through the liquid crystal, creating cracks that formed a periodic zigzag pattern." To examine the structure and behavior of the DNA liquid crystal, the researchers used a relatively new imaging technique developed at Kent State University. Called fluorescence confocal polarizing microscopy, ...

Bacteria could steady buildings against earthquakes

...en used on a smaller scale, for example, to repair cracks in statues, but not to reinforce soil. The new method has several advantages, DeJong said. There are no toxicity problems, compared with chemical methods. The treatment could be done after construction or on an existing building, and the structure...

...rent membranes was they often formed pin-holes and cracks during the fabrication process, resulting in wasted membranes. "With this in mind we have introduced radical changes to the membrane texture because it is the membrane texture which is crucial to the separation efficiency of the material," he said...

Now, self-healing materials can mimic human skin, healing again and again

...ng capability. “Currently, the material can heal cracks in the epoxy coating – analogous to small cuts in skin,” Sottos said. “The next step is to extend the design to where the network can heal ‘lacerations’ that extend into the material’s substrate.”...
