Newswise: Taller, Higher Soil Bed Design Can Help Save Farmers Thousands of Dollars

Taller, Higher Soil Bed Design Can Help Save Farmers Thousands of Dollars

University of Florida Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences

From Florida to Virginia, farmers are enjoying the fruits of Sanjay Shukla’s labor. His compact-bed geometry system allows growers to plant crops in tall soil beds, and the result is thousands of dollars in annual savings.

Trash talk hurts, even when it comes from a robot

Carnegie Institution for Science

Trash talking has a long and colorful history of flustering game opponents, and now researchers at Carnegie Mellon University have demonstrated that discouraging words can be perturbing even when uttered by a robot.

Birds of a Feather Flock Together, But How Do They Decide Where to Go?

American Institute of Physics (AIP)

Coordinated behavior is common in a variety of biological systems, such as insect swarms, fish schools and bacterial colonies. But the way information is spread and decisions are made in such systems is difficult to understand. A group of researchers from Southeast University and China University of Mining and Technology studied the synchronized flight of pigeon flocks. They used this as a basis to explain the mechanisms behind coordinated behavior, in the journal Chaos.

Laying Out Directions for Future of Reliable Blood Clotting Molecule Models

American Institute of Physics (AIP)

Blood clots have long been implicated in heart attacks and strokes. While the role of one key protein, called von Willebrand factor, has been established, a reliable model for predicting how it collects in blood vessels remains elusive. Researchers review recent work on understanding the behavior of vWF in APL Bioengineering, painting a portrait of vWF, and by highlighting advances in the field, the authors put forth promising avenues for therapies in controlling these proteins.

Tiny Filters Help Detect Cancerous Blood Cells

American Institute of Physics (AIP)

Multiple myeloma is a type of blood cancer in which malignant plasma cells accumulate in the bone marrow, and recent studies have shown that some can leave the marrow and enter the blood stream. Until now, it has been difficult to detect these cells, known as clonal circulating plasma cells, in the blood.

Rutgers Conference Will Celebrate 30th Anniversary of Leading Math and Computer Science Center

Rutgers University-New Brunswick

The Center for Discrete Mathematics and Theoretical Computer Science (DIMACS) at Rutgers University–New Brunswick will celebrate its 30th anniversary at a conference on Nov. 21 and 22. At the time of its founding, the DIMACS grant award from the National Science Foundation (NSF) was the largest award Rutgers had ever received. Gov. Thomas H. Kean was there for the opening of the center, and Gov. Phil Murphy will be there to celebrate the center’s three decades of excellence.
