NASA sees formation of Central Atlantic Tropical Storm Ian

( NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) The low pressure area known as System 94L developed into Tropical Storm Ian on Sept. 14. NOAA's GOES-East satellite data was made into an animation that showed the development of the central Atlantic storm.

Online advice for preventing Alzheimer's disease often problematic: UBC research

( University of British Columbia) New UBC research finds that many online resources for preventing Alzheimer's disease are problematic and could be steering people in the wrong direction.

MaxQ And Lighthouse Labs ready to 'hack' Toronto's transportation emissions

( Climate-KIC) Participants will use big data to find new ways to reduce carbon emissions from the transportation grid of North America's fourth largest city -- in a cost-neutral way.

NASA-NOAA's Suomi NPP finds powerful storms in Tropical Storm Malakas

( NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) NASA-NOAA's Suomi NPP satellite measured cloud top temperatures as it passed over Tropical Storm Malakas in the northwestern Pacific Ocean and found strong storms.

New fabric uses sun and wind to power devices

( Georgia Institute of Technology) Fabrics that can generate electricity from physical movement have been in the works for a few years. Now researchers at Georgia Institute of Technology have taken the next step, developing a fabric that can simultaneously harvest energy from both sunshine and motion.

NASA sees Tropical Depression Rai over Thailand, Vietnam, Laos

( NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) After Tropical Depression 19W moved ashore in central Vietnam NASA-NOAA's Suomi NPP satellite passed over the system and found some powerful thunderstorms over Thailand, Vietnam and Laos capable of dropping heavy rainfall.

Language delivers fourfold speedups on big-data problems

( Massachusetts Institute of Technology) This week, at the International Conference on Parallel Architectures and Compilation Techniques, researchers from MIT's Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory are presenting a new programming language, called Milk, that lets application developers manage memory more efficiently in programs that deal with scattered data points in large data sets.

NASA sees Hurricane Orlene at peak intensity

( NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) Hurricane Orlene reached peak strength as the Suomi NPP satellite passed overhead.On Sept. 12 at 5 p.m. EDT Orlene's maximum sustained winds reached 110 mph (175 kph) and became a Category 2 hurricane on the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Wind Scale.

CWRU team improving MRI guidance for robotically controlled procedures

( Case Western Reserve University) Researchers at Case Western Reserve University are developing methods for more effectively using a magnetic resonance imager (MRI) to guide a robotically controlled biopsy needle or heart catheter around organs, muscles and bones to their target tissue. A four-year, $1 million National Science Foundation grant supports the project.

New technique generates human neural stem cells for tissue engineering, 3-D brain models

( Tufts University) Tufts University researchers have discovered a new technique for generating rapidly-differentiating human neural stem cells for use in a variety of tissue engineering applications, including a three-dimensional model of the human brain, according to a paper published today in Stem Cell Reports.
