People have scoffed that 3-D printers are simply toys themselves. But they probably didn't realize how much money is made off playthings. Do-it-yourself (DIY) manufacturing—making goods at home with a 3-D printer using open source designs from a free online repository—has a multimillion-dollar impact on the overall toy industry.

Coral Reefs in the Gulf of Aqaba May Survive Global Warming, New Study Finds

img_biu_17_06_19_12_33.jpg

Coral reefs in the Red Sea’s Gulf of Aqaba can resist rising water temperatures. If they survive local pollution, these corals may one day be used to re-seed parts of the world where reefs are dying. The scientists urge governments to protect the Gulf of Aqaba Reefs.

‘Sound’ Research Shows Slower Boats May Cause Manatees More Harm Than Good

Slower boat speeds reduce risks to manatees. Or do they? Not exactly, according to research that shows the very laws enacted to slow down boats in manatee habitats may actually be doing more harm than good.

New Web-Based Tools to Help Food Companies Protect the Food Supply

Our economy, livelihood and wellbeing depend on food and its supply chains. Supply chains may break if a natural disaster destroys a crop in its primary production region, or if someone tampers with food to cause harm or raise profits. In such cases we need to find out quickly about these incidents and find alternative sources of food ingredients and supplies.
