Backpacks Send Thousands to the Doctor: Prevent Back Injuries This School Year

It’s that time of year again: parents are beginning to buy their children school supplies for the upcoming school year. But what parents may not know is that one particular item is sending thousands of children to their doctors' offices every year—backpacks.

Micro- and Nanotechnologies for Quantitative Biology and Medicine

Ten new reviews and original research reports that illustrate how the progression of research assays from qualitative outputs toward increasingly sensitive quantitative outputs is transforming life sciences and biomedical research and diagnostics by improving the ability of researchers and clinicians to detect and quantify increasingly complex assays.

Pulses of Electrons Manipulate Nanomagnets and Store Information

Skyrmions are a kind of nanomagnet, comprised of a spin-correlated ensemble of electrons acting as a topological magnet on certain microscopic surfaces. The precise properties, like spin orientation, of such nanomagnets can store information. But how might you go about moving or manipulating these nanomagnets at will to store the data you want? New research demonstrates such read/write ability using bursts of electrons, encoding topological energy structures robustly enough for potential data storage applications. The researchers report their work this week in Applied Physics Letters.

NASA's Hubble Sees Martian Moon Orbiting the Red Planet

While photographing Mars, NASA's Hubble Space Telescope captured a cameo appearance of the tiny moon Phobos on its trek around the Red Planet. Hubble took 13 separate exposures over 22 minutes to create a time-lapse video showing the moon's orbital path.

Novel 3-D Printing Process Strengthens Parts by 275 Percent

Brandon Sweeney and his advisor Dr. Micah Green discovered a way to make 3-D printed parts stronger and immediately useful in real-world applications. Sweeney and Green applied the traditional welding concepts to bond the submillimeter layers in a 3-D printed part together, while in a microwave.

‘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.
