New technique reveals immune cell motion

Neutrophils, cells recruited by the immune system to fight infection, need to move through a great variety of tissues. New research shows how neutrophils move through confined spaces in the body. A new system can mimic tissues of different densities and stiffness, enabling improved development and testing of drugs.

Penicillin tactics revealed by scientists

One of the oldest and most widely used antibiotics, penicillin, attacks enzymes that build the bacterial cell wall. Researchers have now shown that penicillin and its variants also set in motion a toxic malfunctioning of the cell's wall-building machinery, dooming the cell to a futile cycle of building and then immediately destroying that wall.

Facial motion a clue to difficulties in social interaction among autistic adults

People on the autistic spectrum may struggle to recognize social cues, unfamiliar people or even someone’s gender because of an inability to interpret changing facial expressions, new research has found.

The physics of mosh pits

2 months agoOdd : Kottke.org

In 2013, a group of researchers published a paper called Collective Motion of Moshers at Heavy Metal Concerts. The paper's abstract reads: Human collective behavior can vary from calm to panicked depending on social context. Using videos publicly available online, we study the highly energized collective motion of attendees at heavy metal concerts. Show More Summary

Researchers watch, in real time, the dynamic motion of HIV as it readies an attack

NEW YORK — (October 8, 2014) -- Researchers at Weill Cornell Medical College have developed technologies that allow investigators, for the first time, to watch what they call the "dance" of HIV proteins on the virus' surface, which may contribute to how it infects human immune cells.

When Did Plate Tectonics Start?

The mystery of what kick-started the motion of our earth's massive tectonic plates across its surface has been explained by researchers at the University of Sydney."Earth is the only planet in our solar system where the process of plate...Show More Summary

NIH announces $46 million in grants for new BRAIN initiative projects

3 months agoHealth : The Checkup

The first projects to receive funding under the Obama administration’s brain research initiative include the creation of a wearable scanner to image the brain in motion and the development of tools such as radio waves, nanoparticles and genetically modified viruses to remotely target activity deep in the brain.

DARPA’S Self-guiding Bullets Can’t Miss Target

3 months agoOdd : It Thing!

The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency in the United States, have developed and tested the prototype of a self-guiding bullet. The so called Darpa’s bullet has the ability to guide itself while in motion and maintain accuracy on target, even in conditions in which any human can make an error. Darpa’s self-guiding bullets are part [...]

What Poetry is Stored in the U.K.’s Memory?

A new study, spearheaded by Andrew Motion and a team of researchers at Cambridge University, sets out to survey individuals across the U.K. to find out “what poetry is stored in our nation’s memory, and what it means to the individuals who remember it.” From The Guardian: Which is why I love the sound of [...]

BlackBerry Classic Release Date is Sept. 24? Q20 Smartphone Video Leaked, 'Old-School' Features Return (WATCH)

The BlackBerry Classic release date is imminent, according to reports, with some even putting the date as Wednesday, Sept. 24. Canadian telecommunications company BlackBerry Limited, formerly known as Research in Motion, could launch the BlackBerry “Q20” Classic alongside their BlackBerry Passport or wait until later this year to unveil the device.

New explanation for origin of plate tectonics: What set Earth's plates in motion?

Geologists have a new explanation for the origin of plate tectonics. Researchers suggest it was triggered by the spreading of early continents then it eventually became a self-sustaining process.

What set the Earth's plates in motion?

The mystery of what kick-started the motion of our earth's massive tectonic plates across its surface has been explained by researchers at the University of Sydney. "Earth is the only planet in our solar system where the process of plate tectonics occurs," said Professor Patrice Rey, from the University of Sydney's School of Geosciences. read more

Bacterial communication: And so they beat on, flagella against the cantilever

Researchers have developed a new model to study the motion patterns of bacteria in real time and to determine how these motions relate to communication within a bacterial colony. They chemically attached colonies of E. coli bacteria to a microcantilever, coupling its motion to that of the bacteria. Show More Summary

And so they beat on, flagella against the cantilever

WASHINGTON D.C., September 16, 2014 – A team of researchers at Boston University and Stanford University School of Medicine has developed a new model to study the motion patterns of bacteria in real time and to determine how these motions relate to communication within a bacterial colony. read more

Researchers watch lipid molecules in motion

Researchers have 'filmed' the movement of lipid molecules using an X-ray stroboscope. Their study offers new insights into the dynamics of biomolecules, which compose materials such as cell membranes.

Co-flowing liquids can stabilize chaotic 'whipping' in microfluidic jets

While producing a whipped jet in a viscous dielectric material – polydimethylsiloxane oil – the researchers were surprised to see the chaotic motion switch over to a steady-state helical structure. "We were able to stabilize the structure...Show More Summary

How the brain finds what it's looking for

A brain region that appears central to perceiving the combination of color and motion has been identified by researchers. These neurons shift in sensitivity toward different colors and directions depending on what is being attended. The study sheds light on a key neurological process.

Open Text: Further Upside Emerges From The Cloud
