Benefits of big city life - only for the elite
Benefits of big city life - only for the elite
Urban inequality in Europe and the United States is so severe that urban elites claim most of the benefits from the agglomeration effects that big cities provide, while large parts of urban populations get little to nothing. In a study published in Nature Human Behaviour, researchers at Linköping University and Leipzig University show that the higher-than-expected outputs of larger cities critically depend on the extreme outcomes of the successful few.

RVC seeks veterinary collaboration for UK dairy herd study
Researchers at the Royal Veterinary College (RVC) are seeking to enrol veterinary practices as they begin a study to determine and benchmark individual and herd-level passive transfer status across dairy herds within the UK. This is the first study to examine the issue from a UK wide perspective and will provide the largest amount of information to date which will inform best practice and benefit both farmers and vets.

Advanced Electronic Materials Cover
A research team at Technische Universität Ilmenau has succeeded in further developing a fundamentally new and very material-saving approach. This approach uses additive material synthesis for semiconductor metallization. The research results, developed in the Nanotechnology Group under the leadership of Professor Heiko Jacobs, follow up on prior publications on lateral nanobridge growth (Advanced Materials 2016, IEEE 2018, IEEE 2020) and open up news ways to connect metallization layers vertically, point-to-point, using a plasma jet process.

Plant-based insulation materials as CO2 sinks?
Plant-based insulation materials as CO2 sinks?
Researchers want to develop a novel type of insulating material from plant-based raw materials or waste products that can permanently bind the CO2 it contains by means of a special heat treatment - and thus act as a CO2 sink.

Moderate and vigorous physical activity is most critical factor for boosting mid-life brain power
Undertaking between six to seven minutes of moderate or vigorous physical activity (MVPA) every day could improve cognitive performance, finds a new study led by UCL researchers. The research, published in the Journal of Epidemiology & Community Health, found that more intense exercise is better for working memory and mental processes, such as planning and organisation.

Lost Video of Georges Lemaître, Father of the Big Bang Theory, Recovered
Fans of science history can now access a new gem: a 20-minute video interview with the father of the Big Bang theory, Belgian Catholic priest and physicist Georges Lemaître. The full recording, originally aired in 1964, was thought to be lost - with only a short excerpt preserved. In 2022, the 20-minute interview was discovered in the archives of Vlaamse Radioen Televisieomroeporganisatie (VRT), the national public broadcasting network for Belgium's Flemish community.

Tinkering for waste collection in space
Waste causes problems not only on Earth, but also in space. A research team from the Lucerne University of Applied Sciences and Arts is currently developing a space debris detector. This can autonomously control satellites that are to clean up space in the future. Above our heads, there is a huge mess: In low-Earth orbits - about 800 km above the Earth - there are currently around 5,500 active and defective satellites orbiting.
