Greta Thunberg’s Message Of Doom Is Religion, Not Reality

In January, the great and not so good of the corporate elite gathered at Davos for another telling off from Greta Thunberg. “One year ago I came to Davos and told you that our house is on fire,” the climate…

Understanding matter at atom-crushing densities

(University of California – Davis) UC Davis will be part of a new Center for Matter at Atomic Pressures focusing on understanding the physics and astrophysical implications of matter under pressures so high that the structure of individual atoms is disrupted. The CMAP will be funded with $12.96 million from the NSF and hosted at the University of Rochester in collaboration with researchers at UC Davis; MIT; Princeton; the University of California, Berkeley; the University of Buffalo; and Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory.

Origins of life: Chemical evolution in a tiny Gulf Stream

Chemical reactions driven by the geological conditions on the early Earth might have led to the prebiotic evolution of self-replicating molecules. Scientists now report on a hydrothermal mechanism that could have promoted the process.

How growth rates influence the fitness of bacteria

Bacteria are survival artists: When they get nutrition, they multiply rapidly, albeit they can also survive periods of hunger. But, when they grow too quickly, their ability to survive is hampered. This research could help increase the effectiveness of antibiotics.

‘Roaming reactions’ study to shed new light on atmospheric molecules

(University of New South Wales) For the first time, a team of chemists has lifted the hood on the mechanics involved in the mysterious interplay between sunlight and molecules in the atmosphere known as ‘roaming reactions’, which could make atmospheric modelling more accurate.

How to Recycle All Types of Amazon Packaging

There’s a problem out there that you may not stop to consider. The packaging materials you get are often trashed unnecessarily. You might know to recycle cardboard, but have you ever stopped to think about how you’re supposed to recycle it? You probably are not aware that plastic envelopes, bubble wrap, and bags are all […]
