A toast to the proteins in dinosaur bones



Posted: 09 Nov 2018 04:30 AM PST


Burnt toast and dinosaur bones have a common trait, according to a new study. They both contain chemicals that, under the right conditions, transform original proteins into something new. It's a process that may help researchers understand how soft-tissue cells inside dinosaur bones can survive for hundreds of millions of years.


Materials scientist creates fabric alternative to batteries for wearable devices



Posted: 08 Nov 2018 01:42 PM PST


A major factor holding back development of wearable biosensors for health monitoring is the lack of a lightweight, long-lasting power supply. Now scientists report that they have developed a method for making a charge-storing system that is easily integrated into clothing for 'embroidering a charge-storing pattern onto any garment.'


Can stimulating the brain treat chronic pain?



Posted: 08 Nov 2018 10:05 AM PST


For the first time, researchers have shown they could target one brain region with a weak alternating current of electricity, enhance the naturally occurring brain rhythms of that region, and significantly decrease symptoms associated with chronic lower back pain.


Transforming carbon dioxide into industrial fuels



Posted: 08 Nov 2018 10:05 AM PST


One day in the not-too-distant future, the gases coming from power plants and heavy industry, rather than spewing into the atmosphere, could be captured and chemically transformed from greenhouse gases like carbon dioxide into industrial fuels or chemicals thanks to a new system that can use renewable electricity to reduce carbon dioxide into carbon monoxide -- a key commodity used in a number of industrial processes.


Rainforest destruction from gold mining hits all-time high in Peru



Posted: 08 Nov 2018 10:05 AM PST


Small-scale gold mining has destroyed more than 170,000 acres of primary rainforest in the Peruvian Amazon in the past five years, according to a new analysis.


Most complete study on Europe's greatest Hadrosaur site published



Posted: 08 Nov 2018 07:59 AM PST


The Basturs Poble site (Lleida) is the most important site in Europe when it comes to hadrosaur remains. It has yielded over 1000 fossils, probably pertaining to the same species. Palaeontologists have now published the most complete study of fossils recovered from the site and reveals the presence of many young individuals.


Amazon forests failing to keep up with climate change



Posted: 08 Nov 2018 06:13 AM PST


New research has assessed the impact of global warming on thousands of tree species across the Amazon to discover the winners and losers from 30 years of climate change. The analysis found the effects of climate change are altering the rainforest's composition of tree species but not quickly enough to keep up with the changing environment.


Researchers generate plants with enhanced drought resistance without penalizing growth



Posted: 08 Nov 2018 06:13 AM PST


Extreme drought is one of the effects of climate change that is already being perceived. A team has obtained plants with increased drought resistance by modifying the signaling of the plant steroid hormones, known as brassinosteroids. The study is among the first to find a strategy to increase plant hydric stress resistance without affecting overall plant growth.
