A design approach is needed to keep the Dutch delta safe and liveable in the future. Researchers, urban planners, landscape architects and engineers created innovative designs for 5 regions in the Netherlands as part of the Redesigning Deltas movement. Their approach and the designs should spur bold long-term planning for our delta. The proposals were unveiled at the International Architecture Biennale now taking place in Rotterdam and can also be reviewed online.
Research over the past two decades has culminated in a -new and promising- approach to developing drugs to treat cardio-metabolic diseases.
A team of scientists from Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory ÜBerkeley Lab). and UC Berkeley have devised a new technique for recycling polyethylene plastic bags and food packaging into propylene or propene gas, a valuable starter material for commercial plastics and commodity chemicals.
Neural networks are learning algorithms that approximate the solution to a task by training with available data. However, it is usually unclear how exactly they accomplish this. Two young Basel physicists have now derived mathematical expressions that allow one to calculate the optimal solution without training a network. Their results not only give insight into how those learning algorithms work, but could also help to detect unknown phase transitions in physical systems in the future.
New research shows how doctors can improve the timing of surgery for some heart attack patients by the levels of a particular protein in their blood.
New insights into quantum phenomena at phase transitions - In the past, quantum phenomena could be investigated only in the realm of just a few atoms.
A new clinical trial, aimed at improving treatment options for patients with Crohn's disease, is to begin in Scotland. Led by the University of Glasgow and NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde (NHSGGC) in collaboration with hospitals around Scotland, the BIOPIC Study will evaluate the use of PEN (Partial Enteral Nutrition) - in which patients replace half of their normal diet with liquid-only prepared supplements.
Sociologist and UdeM professor Cécile Van de Velde has analyzed text from seven major protests around the world to understand the voices of contemporary social movements.
