Radio-wave therapy is safe for liver cancer patients and shows improvement in overall survival, study suggests

Researchers have shown that a targeted therapy using non-thermal radio waves is safe to use in the treatment of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), the most common type of liver cancer, according to a new study. The therapy also showed a benefit in overall survival. Continue Reading at ScienceDaily.com Click Here. Press Release Distribution Service

‘Greening’ biomaterials and scaffolds used in regenerative medicine

In the biomaterials industry, electrospinning is a ubiquitous fabrication method used to produce nano- to microscale fibrous meshes that closely resemble native tissue architecture. Alas, the process has traditionally used solvents that not only are environmentally hazardous but also a significant barrier to industrial scale-up, clinical translation, and widespread use. But now, researchers report that…

In the absence of genetic variation, asexual invasive species find new methods of adapting to their environment

New research has found that two types of weevils, common yet invasive beetles in many parts of the world, have been using epigenetic changes to adapt and respond to different toxins in the plants they eat. The findings have implications for how we consider asexual invaders and how successful they can be because of gene…

Astronomers probe layer-cake structure of brown dwarf’s atmosphere

Astronomers have developed a new way to capture all the exquisite ‘layer-cake’ details of a brown dwarf’s cloud structure. Because brown dwarfs are similar to super-Jupiters, this innovative technique can help deepen scientists’ understanding of the atmospheres of giant alien worlds that are more massive than Jupiter.

The environment for permafrost in Daisetsu Mountains in Japan is projected to decrease significantly

Areas with climatic conditions suitable for sustaining permafrost in the Daisetsu Mountains are projected. The size of the area in the Daisetsu Mountains where climatic conditions were suitable for permafrost were estimated to be approximately 150 km2 in 2010. Under the business-as-usual scenario, this area is projected to disappear by around 2070. Under the low-carbon…

Some birds steal hair from living mammals, study finds

Solar-powered microbes to feed the world?

An international research team has shown that using solar-panels to produce microbial protein — which is rich not just in proteins but also in other nutrients — is more sustainable, efficient and environmentally friendly than growing conventional crops. This method uses solar energy, land, nutrients, and carbon dioxide from the air. Continue Reading at ScienceDaily.com…

Adapting roots to a hotter planet could ease pressure on food supply

The shoots of plants get all of the glory, with their fruit and flowers and visible structure. But it’s the portion that lies below the soil — the branching, reaching arms of roots and hairs pulling up water and nutrients — that interests some plant physiologist and computer scientist the most.

Planetary scientist puts Mars lake theory on ice with new study that offers alternate explanation

For years scientists have been debating what might lay under the Martian planet’s south polar cap after bright radar reflections were discovered and initially attributed to water. But now, a new study puts that theory to rest and demonstrates for the first time that another material is most likely the answer. Continue Reading at ScienceDaily.com…

Optimizing phase change material usage could reduce power plant water consumption

The food-water-energy nexus dictates that there is a direct link between these three necessities, and stressing one directly impacts the supply of the other two. As the population grows, human demand for energy and food has caused our freshwater reserves to slowly deplete. Power plants are one of the main culprits contributing to this issue,…

‘Less than 1% probability’ that Earth’s energy imbalance increase occurred naturally

Sunlight in, reflected and emitted energy out. That’s the fundamental energy balance sheet for our planet — and for decades, it has been out of balance. The extra energy manifests as higher temperatures, rising sea levels, floods, droughts, more powerful blizzards and hurricanes, and deadlier extreme events. Not only is the imbalance growing, but there’s…
