( NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) There are two developing areas of tropical low pressure that lie east and west of Queensland, Australia.
( Rochester Institute of Technology) Recognizing the conditions under which goods are transported to better prevent damage is key to a new product developed by a research team at Rochester Institute of Technology. The group designed Pak-Track-I and Pak-Track-II, data logger prototypes and a cloud-based data analysis system to evaluate distribution hazards during transit. Analysis is done in real-time and information is relayed via wireless technology to companies.
( DOE/Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory) A JCAP study shows that nearly 90-percent of the electrons generated by a semiconductor/cobaloxime hybrid catalyst designed to store solar energy in hydrogen are being stored in their intended target molecules.
( The Translational Genomics Research Institute) In association with its 50th anniversary, the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) has named Dr. Daniel D. Von Hoff one of ASCO's 50 Oncology Luminaries, celebrating 50 doctors who over the past half-century have significantly advanced cancer care.
( NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) Agricultural fires are still burning in Indochina 10 days after the last NASA web posting about the fires.
( Indiana University) Public health departments nationwide are already feeling the strain from budget cuts. But their case report volumes are forecasted to double when federal requirements for automated electronic laboratory reporting of notifiable diseases go into effect next year, according to a new study from the Regenstrief Institute Inc. and the Indiana University School of Informatics and Computing at IUPUI.
( The Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST)) Professor Yang-Hann Kim, an eminent scholar in sound engineering, and Professor Jung-Woo Choi collaborated to write Sound Visualization and Manipulation (Wily 2013), which uniquely addresses the two most important problems in the field in a unified way.
( Saarland University) Apps on web-enabled mobile devices can be used to spy on their users. Computer scientists at the Center for Security, Privacy and Accountability developed software that shows whether an app has accessed private data. To accomplish this, the program examines the 'bytecode' of the app in question. The researchers show their program at the upcoming computer expo CeBIT in Hannover at the Saarland University research booth E13 in hall 9.
( Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft) Maximize mileage, safety, or operating life? Driving behavior behind the wheel has a big influence on the vehicle. Fraunhofer researchers have developed a driving simulator designed to make the 'human factor' more calculable for vehicle engineers.
( University of Utah) Using an inexpensive inkjet printer, University of Utah electrical engineers produced microscopic structures that use light in metals to carry information. This new technique, which controls electrical conductivity within such microstructures, could be used to rapidly fabricate superfast components in electronic devices, make wireless technology faster or print magnetic materials.
