Anti-Cancer Drug Derived From Himalayan Fungus Clears Early Clinical Trials

An Oxford University study has shown that the new drug NUC-7738—a novel chemotherapy drug, derived from a fungus—has up to 40 times greater potency for killing cancer cells than its parent compound, with limited toxic side effects. The naturally-occurring nucleoside analogue known as Cordycepin (a.k.a 3’-deoxyadenosine) is found in the Himalayan fungus Cordyceps sinensis and […]

Global Warming Solutions That Can Save Our Planet – Al Bawaba

Global warming solutions are the top-notch question for all countries on the Earth. Humankind has to learn how to use natural resources more efficiently. The reduction of greenhouse gas emissions to the lowest level will help humanity to prevent great…

Brilliant Bruce the Disabled Parrot Uses Pebbles to Clean Himself With Broken Beak—Something Never Before Observed

There’s never been an insult to convey a greater misconception than the phrase ‘bird-brained’, because our feathered friends routinely use their high levels of intelligence, and soar to surprising heights demanding admiration. Take Bruce for example, the 8 year-old Alpine parrot from New Zealand. Bruce is missing the top half of his beak and is […]

NASA Measures Interior of Mars for the First time, Revealing Huge Liquid Core

In the first ever measurement of another planet’s core, seismography conducted over several Martian years have revealed the liquid metal core is softer than expected—more like a Mars-mellow than a Mars Bar. While the recently arrived Perseverance rover has been hoovering up much of the Mars-related attention, a trio of recently published papers that measured […]

Limits to private climate change mitigation | VOX, CEPR Policy Portal – voxeu.org

As climate change looms ever larger (IPCC 2018a, Furman et al. 2015), economists have coalesced around the need for climate policies centring around Pigouvian taxes cushioned by transfers to vulnerable households (IMF 2020, Gollier 2021).1 However, carbon taxes and related policies…

Computers help researchers find materials to turn solar power into hydrogen

(Penn State) A Penn State-led team of researchers reports that it has taken a step toward overcoming the challenge of inexpensive hydrogen production by using supercomputers to find materials that could help accelerate hydrogen separation when water is exposed to light, a process called photocatalysis.

World-first discovery could fuel the new green ammonia economy

(Monash University) Monash University scientists have developed a new technique using phosphonium salts that can help drive the future production of green ammonia. This process could reduce the impact of ammonia production on global carbon emissions. Each metric tonne of ammonia produced today contributes to roughly 1.9 metric tonnes of greenhouse emissions.
