Cotton Gin Trash Finding New Life for Electrical Power

COLLEGE STATION – Finding sustainable markets for gin trash, wood chips and other waste products could be viable in producing more electrical power for a growing global population, according to researchers. A demonstration was held recently on the campus of Texas A&M University in College Station showcasing a biomass-fueled fluidized bed gasifier, utilizing cotton gin trash and wood chips to power an electric generator. The fluidized bed gasification system was developed in the 1980s when a patent was issued to Drs. Calvin Parnell Jr. and W.A. Lepori, who were both part of the Texas Agricultural Experiment Station now Texas A&M AgriLife Research.

New dental imaging method uses squid ink to fish for gum disease

Squid ink could make getting checked for gum disease at the dentist less tedious and even painless. By combining squid ink with light and ultrasound, a team led by engineers at the University of California San Diego has developed a new dental imaging method to examine a patient’s gums that is non-invasive, more comprehensive and more accurate than today's periodontal exam.

Tooth Trouble: Many Middle-Aged Adults Report Dental Pain, Embarrassment and Poor Prevention

The dental health of middle-aged Americans faces a lot of problems right now, and an uncertain future to come, according to new national poll results. One in three Americans between the ages of 50 and 64 say they’re embarrassed by the condition of their teeth, and that dental problems have caused pain or other problems in the past two years. Forty percent of those polled don’t get regular cleanings or other preventive oral care.

Results from Harvey In as Texas Tech Team Hits the Road Again Ahead of Irma

Audio clips available by request.  Pitch Brian Hirth One week after a team of Texas Tech researchers returned to Lubbock from collecting data during Hurricane Harvey, they’re on the road again. This time, the team is headed toward Florida where Hurricane Irma, which now ranks as the strongest storm ever recorded in the Atlantic, could make U.

A Touch of ERoS

Researchers interested in the evolution of multicellular life were looking for bacteria that stimulate Salpingoeca rosetta, single-cell saltwater dwellers that are the closest living relatives of animals, to form the rosette-shaped colonies that give them their name. But one bacterium had quite a different stimulating effect: It motivated S. rosetta to have sex.

Artificial Intelligence Thinks Like People with Autism; Being Used to Develop Educational Tools

Vanderbilt Assistant Professor of Computer Science Maithilee Kunda figured out how to write code that emulates the kind of image-based thinking many people with autism report. The result is a form of artificial intelligence that allows researchers to study a model of human cognition.
