Two-third of global warming contribution from just 90 firms!

A new research on greenhouse gas emissions has reported that the climate crisis of the 21st century has been caused largely by just 90 companies, which between them produced nearly two-thirds of the greenhouse gas emissions generated since the dawning of the industrial age….Read more


Major breakthrough in MRI technology for screening liquids

Scientists at Los Alamos National Lab have advanced a Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) technology that may provide a breakthrough for screening liquids at airport security. They have achieved a new detection technology by adding low-power X-ray data to the mix. The new system is named MagRay…Read more


Eating nuts reduces death risks

According to a latest study, people who ate a daily handful of nuts were 20 per cent less likely to die from any cause over a 30-year period than those who didn’t consume nuts. The regular nut-eaters were found to be more slender than those who didn’t eat nuts, a finding that should alleviate fears that eating a lot of nuts will lead to overweight…. Read more

Newly developed microfluidic chip to sort good germs from bad

Arizona State University scientists have developed a microfluidic chip, which can sort good germs from bad. Human intestine is home to about 100 trillion bacteria. That’s more than the number of cells that comprise the entire human body…. Read more


Towards new drug for HIV infection

Research team at Northeastern University has altered the way we look at drug development for HIV by uncovering some unusual properties of a human protein called APOBEC3G (A3G). In response to virus infection, the body makes specific antibodies to counteract the infection…. Read more


Colors family – Inks, Dyes and Pigments

A dye is a colored substance that has an affinity to the substrate to which it is being applied. It is an ionizing and aromatic organic compound, with Chromophores as a major component. Their structures have Aryl rings that have delocalized electron systems…. Read more
