Newswise: Tropical Crops Need Bugs

Article ID: 714401

Tropical Crops Need Bugs

Wildlife Conservation Society

Hymenoptera, a large order of insects that contains bees and wasps, is the main group of pollinators in agricultural systems, yet little is known about the role they play in pollination networks and the dependence of plants on specific pollinators in tropical agroecosystems.

Electron (or 'Hole') Pairs May Survive Effort to Kill Superconductivity

Brookhaven National Laboratory

Scientists seeking to understand the mechanism underlying superconductivity in “stripe-ordered” cuprates—copper-oxide materials with alternating areas of electric charge and magnetism—discovered an unusual metallic state when attempting to turn superconductivity off. They found that under the conditions of their experiment, even after the material loses its ability to carry electrical current with no energy loss, it retains some conductivity—and possibly the electron (or hole) pairs required for its superconducting superpower.

Study: Suicide among older adults in long-term care suggests more is needed to promote mental, social well-being

University of Michigan

Clinicians, administrators and policymakers should consider ways to support the mental health and well-being of older adults as they go through residential transitions, according to a University of Michigan study that looked at deaths by suicide among people 55 and older.

Satellite observations improve earthquake monitoring, response

University of Iowa

Researchers at the University of Iowa and the United States Geologic Survey report data gathered by orbiting satellites can yield more information about destructive earthquakes and can improve aid and humanitarian response efforts. The researchers looked at satellite data from several recent, large-magnitude earthquakes.

Newswise: Despite dire predictions, levels of social support remain steady in the U.S.

Article ID: 714383

Despite dire predictions, levels of social support remain steady in the U.S.

Penn State Institute for CyberScience

Although Americans have faced waves of social, technological and economic disruption over the last few decades, a new study indicates that their perceptions of available social support have remained steady and, in some cases, may even be strengthening. In a study that examined data that spans nearly two decades, survey respondents reported that their access to help from friends and family — a key measure of social support — has increased slightly over time.

Researchers capture microscopic manufacturing flaws via high-speed X-ray movies

Missouri University of Science and Technology

Microscopic defects that occur in laser-based manufacturing of metal parts can lead to big problems if undetected, and the process of fixing these flaws can increase the time and cost of high-tech manufacturing. But new research into the cause of these flaws could lead to a remedy.

Cassini flyby data of Saturn’s C ring prompts plateau puzzlement

Cornell University

Spectral information about Saturn’s rings sent by NASA’s Cassini spacecraft nearly two years ago was intended to uncover definitive scientific answers. Instead, it triggered more questions about the C-ring and its plateaus.
