Negative posts on Facebook business pages outweigh positive posts 2 to 1

( Institute for Operations Research and the Management Sciences) There are more than 60 million business pages on Facebook and that number is from 2017. With those pages come scores of positive and negative posts generated by Facebook users. What researchers have seen is companies have very little control over what customers post, and negative posts can severely damage brands.

GPM analyzes rainfall in Bahamas from potential Tropical Cyclone 9

( NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) As the Bahamas continue to recover from Category 5 hurricane Dorian, a new developing tropical cyclone is bringing additional rainfall to an already soaked area.

Gene editing tool gets sharpened by WFIRM team

( Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center) Wake Forest Institute for Regenerative Medicine scientists have fine-tuned their delivery system to deliver a DNA editing tool to alter DNA sequences and modify gene function. The improved 'hit and run' system works faster and is more efficient.

NASA-NOAA satellite's night-time look at Tropical Storm Kiko

( NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) NASA-NOAA's Suomi NPP satellite passed over the Eastern Pacific Ocean in the early hours of Sept. 12 and grabbed a nighttime look at Tropical Storm Kiko.

Chemistry team leverages 'Data Revolution' to solve current issues in chemistry

( University of Utah) Matthew Sigman, distinguished professor and chair of the University of Utah department of chemistry, is part of a vanguard of researchers solving problems in chemistry using data science and machine learning.Sigman is part of a National Science Foundation-supported team spanning five universities charged with creating a new generation of data chemists through their Center for Computer Assisted Synthesis (C-CAS).

Groovy! These grooved patterns better mitigate shock waves

( University of California - San Diego) A team of engineers at UC San Diego has discovered a method that could make materials more resilient against massive shocks such as earthquakes or explosions. They found that cutting small grooves in obstacle materials diminished the impacts of what's called the reflected shock wave--once the initial wave has hit the spiral of obstacles and bounced back.

Sticks and stones may break your bones, but this reaction edits skeletons

( Institute of Chemical Research of Catalonia (ICIQ)) Marcos G. Suero and his research group at the Institute of Chemical Research of Catalonia (ICIQ) present a new reaction that allows for the edition of organic molecule's skeletons, opening up new avenues of research.

Children's Tumor Foundation hosts NF Innovation Week in San Francisco

( Children's Tumor Foundation ) Neurofibromatosis (NF), a genetic disorder that causes tumors to grow on nerves throughout the body in over 2.5 million people worldwide has no cure. New research is offering novel insights into the disease and generating enthusiasm that effective therapeutics are on the horizon. The Children's Tumor Foundation, the nonprofit global leader in NF research, is harnessing this revitalized interest in rare disease research through a series of events in San Francisco called NF Innovation Week.

Lithuanian scientists contributed to creating the record-breaking solar cell

( Kaunas University of Technology) Tandem perovskite-CIGS solar cells, produced as a result of the collaboration between Lithuanian and German researchers, have reached an efficiency of 23.26%, which currently is a world record value in this type of cells. One reason for the success lies in the cell's intermediate layer of organic molecules: they self-assemble to cover even rough semiconductor surfaces. The self-assembling materials were synthesised at Kaunas University of Technology (KTU), Lithuania.

Scientists create a nanomaterial that is both twisted and untwisted at the same time

( University of Bath) A new nanomaterial developed by scientists at the University of Bath could solve a conundrum faced by scientists probing some of the most promising types of future pharmaceuticals.
