Behavior Modification To Control Adhd Advocated

Only 10 percent of children with attention deficiet hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) receive any kind of therapy to help them modify their behavior. A Purdue University expert on ADHD says that figure should be near 100 percent.

Students 'Harmonize' With A Star In A Jar

Using $1.29 acrylic boxes from a dime store and simple electronics, undergraduate students and their lab instructor at The University of Alabama in Huntsville are doing cutting edge research into sonoluminesence, a little understood phenomenon sometimes referred to as "a star in a jar."

CATS WITH FELINE LEUKEMIA OR FIV REQUIRE EXTRA ATTENTION

Two viruses, the feline leukemia virus -- FELV -- and the feline immunodeficiency virus -- FIV -- are infecting the cat population in a manner similar to the AIDS-related human immunodeficiency virus -- HIV.

Watershed Ecosystem Studies: Improved NR Management

A special symposium, "Integrating Watershed Ecosystem Studies for Improved Natural Resource Management" will be presented in Seattle, WA, on February 15 as part of the annual meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS). The symposium will highlight the use of long-term, ecosystem-level studies for detecting changes in biological, chemical, and physical processes associated with watersheds.

Sperm Counts and Birth Rates

Researchers at Columbia-Presbyterian Medical Center have found that population-wide sperm counts vary significantly from year to year, and that these variations coincide with yearly changes in birth rates. The findings, to be published in the March issue of the Journal of Urology, may also explain why previous fertility studies have concluded that sperm counts around the world are declining.

Most PCBs Not As Carcinogenic As Thought

Scientists believe there is little doubt that compounds called polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) cause cancer in animal studies. It has been illegal to produce PCBs in the United States since 1977, but huge amounts of the compounds remain in the environment, raising serious concerns for public health officials. A new study, however, has found that many of the PCBs in the environment in this country may not be as carcinogenic as previously thought.

UNUSUAL PHOSPHORUS COMPOUND DISCOVERED

Biochemists at the University of Georgia have discovered an unusual phosphorus-containing compound in an extreme-heat-loving bacterium -- a discovery that will advance thinking about how life exists near the boiling point in underwater volcanic vents.

Star Trek Technology Comes to Earth

Technology transfer may have found its way from "Star Trek's" starship Enterprise to Earth. Many Star Trek fans are familiar with clear "data cubes" frequently seen on the television program and used by the crew to access information. A researcher at The University of Alabama in Huntsville believes the Enterprise's technology isn't so futuristic. Using holographic technology, a similar data storage device could hold a tremendous amount of data and provide rapid access.

For Some, Radical Innovations May Give An Edge

Rushing radically innovative new products to market with a minimum of "polish" may give large U.S. companies a competitive edge over their Japanese counterparts in emerging or "high uncertainty" markets, according to research at The University of Alabama in Huntsville. This "radical" recommendation comes from a seven-year study of 104 new electronics products developed in the U.S. and Japan.
