Small molecule plays big role in weaker bones as we age

( Medical College of Georgia at Augusta University) With age, expression of a small molecule that can silence others goes way up while a key signaling molecule that helps stem cells make healthy bone goes down, scientists report.

Scientists use artificial neural networks to predict new stable materials

( University of California - San Diego) Artificial neural networks -- algorithms inspired by connections in the brain -- have 'learned' to perform a variety of tasks, from pedestrian detection in self-driving cars, to analyzing medical images, to translating languages. Now, researchers at the University of California San Diego are training artificial neural networks to predict new stable materials.

Australia's science agency launches ASEAN presence

( CSIRO Australia) Australia's national science agency, the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) formally launched its ASEAN presence today at an event held in Singapore.

Warnings were up for Hong Kong for Typhoon Mangkhut after landfall

( NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) On Sunday, Sept. 16, 2018, Typhoon Mangkhut had made landfall in southern China and Hurricane signal #10 was still in force. NASA's Aqua satellite passed over the storm and captured an image that showed the storm after landfall.

NASA data shows Florence brings torrential rains and record flooding to the Carolinas

( NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) NASA estimated the precipitation generated by Hurricane Florence from Sept. 10 through 17 as it approached North Carolina and days after it made landfall. On Sept. 17, 2018, Florence's remnant rainfall was moving up the Appalachian Mountains into the Mid-Atlantic.

RUDN University mathematicians proposed to improve cellular network coverage by using UAVs

( RUDN University) RUDN University mathematicians simulated the work of a cellular network. In their model unmanned aerial vehicles are employed as additional transmitters. Most of the available communication systems give a flat coverage and do not take into account the difference in altitude, which results in the appearance of the so-called 'blind' zones. Flying drones will help in solving this issue. The work is published in the journal IEEE Transactions on Vehicular Technology.

New world record magnetic field

( American Institute of Physics) Scientists at the University of Tokyo have recorded the largest magnetic field ever generated indoors -- a whopping 1,200 tesla, as measured in the standard units of magnetic field strength. The high magnetic field also has implications for nuclear fusion reactors, a tantalizing if unrealized potential future source of abundant clean energy. The experiments that set the new world record are described in this week's Review of Scientific Instruments.

NSF funds UC Santa Cruz study of tech in agriculture

( University of California - Santa Cruz) Researchers at UC Santa Cruz are leading a new multi-campus initiative to explore the intersection of agriculture, food, and technology.

NASA sees Post-Tropical Cyclone Helene affecting Ireland, United Kingdom

( NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) Post-tropical cyclone Helene developed off the west coast of Africa and moved north then northeast where it is now raining on parts of Ireland and the United Kingdom. Clouds and rainfall connected to Helene are already affecting those countries.

Compact fiber laser may enable wearable tech and better endoscopes

( The Optical Society) By creating a new twist on fiber optic sensors, researchers in China have developed a smart, flexible photoacoustic imaging technique that may have potential applications in wearable devices, instrumentation and medical diagnostics.
