Marine reserves help alleviate climate change
An international team of scientists has concluded that 'highly protected' marine reserves can help mitigate the effects of climate change and suggests that these areas be expanded and better managed throughout the world. Globally, coastal nations have committed to protecting 10% of their waters by 2020, but thus far only 3.5% of the ocean has been set aside for protection - and less than half of that (1.6%) is strongly protected fr...
Drug delivery system could improve cancer treatment
Researchers have created a drug delivery system that could improve the effectiveness of an emerging concept in cancer treatment - to dramatically slow and control tumors on a long-term, sustained basis, not necessarily aiming for their complete elimination. The approach, called a "metronomic dosage regimen," uses significantly lower doses of chemotherapeutic drugs but at more frequent time intervals.
A better way to boil water with electronics applications
Engineers at Oregon State University have found a way to induce and control boiling bubble formation, that may allow everything from industrial-sized boilers to advanced electronics to work better and last longer. Advances in this technology have been published in Scientific Reports and a patent application filed.
