DOE grants $10.6 million to produce more biodiesel, biojet fuel

( Carl R. Woese Institute for Genomic Biology, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign) The US Department of Energy (DOE) awarded the University of Illinois a $10.6 million, five-year grant to transform two of the most productive crops in America into sustainable sources of biodiesel and biojet fuel through a new research project new research project Renewable Oil Generated with Ultra-productive Energycane (ROGUE).

Short-term use of IV devices is common -- and risky -- study shows

( Michigan Medicine - University of Michigan) Many hospital patients get medicine or nutrition delivered straight into their bloodstream through a tiny device called a PICC. In just a decade, it's become the go-to device for intravenous care.But a new study finds that one in every four times a PICC gets inserted, the patient didn't need it long enough to justify the risks it can pose. And nearly one in ten of those patients suffered a complication linked to the device.

Scientists examine link between surface-water salinity, climate change

( Syracuse University) A Syracuse University researcher explores the impact of de-icing salt from roads and highways on a local watershed. She says their findings make her 'cautiously optimistic' about the watershed's future surface-water chloride concentrations.

New device for low-cost single-cell analysis identifies fibroblast subtypes in RA patients

( New York Genome Center) As described in a study published today in Nature Communications, researchers at the New York Genome Center (NYGC) and New York University (NYU) have taken steps to facilitate broad access to single-cell sequencing by developing a 3-D-printed, portable and low-cost microfluidic controller. To demonstrate the utility of the instrument in clinical environments, the researchers deployed the device to study synovial tissue from patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) at the Hospital for Special Surgery (HSS).

German nights get brighter -- but not everywhere

( GFZ GeoForschungsZentrum Potsdam, Helmholtz Centre) The nights in the German federal states („Bundesländer") have been getting brighter and brighter in the last four years -- but not everywhere at the same rate and with one exemption: Thuringia. This is the result of a study by scientists Chris Kyba and Theres Küster from the GFZ German Research Centre for Geosciences together with Helga Kuechly from 'Luftbild - Umwelt - Planung, Potsdam'. They published the study in the International Journal of Sustainable Lighting.

PSU study: Pro-diversity policies make companies more innovative and profitable

( Portland State University) PSU business school professor's research shows that companies that hire a more diverse set of employees are rewarded with a richer pipeline of innovative products and a stronger financial position.

How cities heat up

( Massachusetts Institute of Technology) New study from MIT and CNRS shows a way to dial down the urban heat island effects that can pump up city temperatures, through different city planning based on classical physics formulas.

Gerald R. Ford Airport wins 2018 Speas Award for stormwater treatment system

( American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics) The American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA) congratulates the Gerald R. Ford International Airport Authority as the 2018 winner of the Jay Hollingsworth Speas Airport Award for its innovative and sustainable stormwater and deicing treatment system.

Private browsing gets more private

( Massachusetts Institute of Technology) A new MIT system uses JavaScript decryption algorithms embedded in web pages and code obfuscation to patch security holes left open by web browsers' private-browsing functions.
