Bell Labs Invents Lensless Camera

Bell Labs Invents Lensless Camera | Scientific and Technological Innovation | Scoop.it
A new class of imaging device with no lens and just a single light sensitive sensor could revolutionise optical, infrared and millimetre wave imaging.

NYTimes: High Plains Aquifer Dwindles, Hurting Farmers | Scientific and Technological Innovation | Scoop.it
Parts of the vast High Plains Aquifer, once a prodigious source of water, are now so low that crops can’t be watered and bridges span arid stream beds.

I'm starting to collect articles for the Teaching Tool on Plant Water Relations. I'm not sure that I can stand to read too many like this one. It's very depressing to wonder how food will be grown 50 years from now, when the water's all gone.

Scientists Prove Green Algae's Appetite for Bacteria

"A team of researchers is the first to provide definitive proof that green algae eat bacteria. The finding, captured with electron microscope images, offers a glipse at how scienstists think early organisms acquired free-living chloroplasts"

Here's the article in Current Biology http://www.cell.com/current-biology/retrieve/pii/S0960982213005046

Simple tools speed up quake warnings

Simple tools speed up quake warnings | Scientific and Technological Innovation | Scoop.it

Researchers have developed a new technique for quickly assessing the magnitude of large earthquakes, cutting down the time required in the case of the recent quake in Japan, for example, from about 20 minutes to just 2-3 minutes.

Pairing the seismic devices we have with current detection systems with GPS seems like something you might guess was already standard.

A appropriate and proper alarm system for earth quake can save many lifes. Thanks for sharing Dr. Stefan.

Is 3-D Printing a Game Changer? | Wilson Center

Is 3-D Printing a Game Changer? | Wilson Center | Scientific and Technological Innovation | Scoop.it

On this week’s Dialogue at the Wilson Center our guest is the director of the Wilson Center’s Science and Technology Innovation Program, David Rejeski.  Additionally, David is a Visiting Scholar at the Environmental Law Institute and previously served at the White House Council on Environmental Quality and the Office of Science and Technology. He joins us to discuss the potential of 3-D printing and digital fabrication.  Additional guests join us from the Fab Lab in Washington, D.C. for a hands-on look at the new technology.  

BLC3's insight:

What do you think? Is 3-D printing going to be a game changer?

NPR Weekend All Things Considered: Scientists Trace Source Of Famed Irish Potato Famine (2013)

NPR Weekend All Things Considered: Scientists Trace Source Of Famed Irish Potato Famine (2013) | Scientific and Technological Innovation | Scoop.it

We now know what caused the Irish potato famine. Scientists have pinpointed the pathogen by using plant samples collected in the mid-19th century. Weekends on All Things Considered host Jacki Lyden talks about it with the study's co-author, Sophien Kamoun of the Sainsbury Lab in the United Kingdom.

Plant Cell: Plant Immune Responses Against Viruses: How Does a Virus Cause Disease?

Plant Cell: Plant Immune Responses Against Viruses: How Does a Virus Cause Disease? | Scientific and Technological Innovation | Scoop.it

New review article in Plant Cell.

"Recently, significant progress has been made in understanding RNA silencing and how viruses counter this apparently ubiquitous antiviral defense. In addition, plants also induce hypersensitive and systemic acquired resistance responses, which together limit the virus to infected cells and impart resistance to the noninfected tissues."
