Intriguing that Google has not forged links with some of the medical researchers and public health organizations who between them have a fair amount o accumulated knowledge on this topic. Watch this with interest!

NASA’s tiny 460GHz vacuum transistor that could one day replace silicon FETs | Nano Technology

NASA’s tiny 460GHz vacuum transistor that could one day replace silicon FETs | Nano Technology | NGSS Resources | Scoop.it
Way back in the salad days of digital computing (the 1940s and '50s), computers were made of vacuum tubes -- big, hot, clunky devices that, when you got right down to it, were essentially glorified light bulbs. This is why early computers like the ENIAC weighed more than 27 tons and consumed more power than a small town. Later, obviously, vacuum tubes would be replaced by probably the greatest invention of all time -- the solid-state transistor -- which would allow for the creation of smaller, faster, cheaper, and more reliable computers. Fast forward to 2014, though, and the humble CMOS field-effect transistor (FET) is starting to show its age. We've pretty much hit the limit on shrinking silicon transistors any further, and they can't operate at speeds much faster than a few gigahertz. Which is why NASA's Ames Research Center is going back to the future with its new vacuum transistor -- a nanometer-scale vacuum tube that, in early testing, has reached speeds of up to 460GHz.

Ultimately, the scientists hope their observations will indicate whether an irreversible permafrost tipping point may be near at hand. While scientists don't yet believe the Arctic has reached that tipping point, no one knows for sure. "We hope CARVE may be able to find that 'smoking gun,' if one exists," Miller said.

Graphene body armor: Twice the stopping power of Kevlar, at a fraction of the weight

Graphene body armor: Twice the stopping power of Kevlar, at a fraction of the weight | NGSS Resources | Scoop.it
Graphene, the wonder material that should rejuvenate almost every sphere of science and technology in the next decade or so, can add another application to its already exceedingly long list: bulletproof armor. US researchers have found that, by stacking sheets of graphene on top of each other, it has between eight and 10 times the stopping power of steel.

How Your Bee-Friendly Garden May Actually Be Killing Bees | Science | NGSS Resources | Scoop.it
Even as they try to help the bees, people may inadvertently poison them by planting pesticide-laden plants purchased from big-box garden centers, suggests a new report.

 

More than half of ostensibly bee-friendly plants sampled at Home Depot, Lowe's and Walmart garden centers contained high levels of neonicotinoids, which are considered highly toxic to bees, butterflies and other insect pollinators.
