Technique could enable cheaper fertilizer production
Technique could enable cheaper fertilizer production
Chemical engineers take a step toward generating ammonia with small-scale, electrochemical reactors. Most of the world's fertilizer is produced in large manufacturing plants, which require huge amounts of energy to generate the high temperatures and pressures needed to combine nitrogen and hydrogen into ammonia.

Malaria mosquito research could provide new control tools
Scientists have discovered a malaria transmission-blocking microbe, making an important stride in the fight against the disease. The disease kills around 400,000 people each year and imposes a huge burden on Africa. The World Health Organisation (WHO) recently stressed the need to continue the efforts against malaria, despite the necessary focus on COVID-19, and said deaths from malaria could rise significantly across sub-Saharan Africa this year if work to prevent the disease is disrupted by the coronavirus outbreak.

Economic woes create more marital disagreements
Married couples argue with each other more about finances and other household matters as they cope with economic hardship from the global COVID-19 pandemic. But these outcomes are similar to what occurred more than a decade earlier, according to a new University of Michigan study that found economic hardships during the 2008 U.S. recession strained household finances and increased marital disagreements.

Epidiemology and urban planning: the views of Sascha Roesler on the NZZ
What is the relationship between epidiemology and urban planning? Sascha Roesler, assistant professor at the USI Academy of Achitecture (Institute for the History and Theory of Art and Architecture, ISA), explores the subject in a recently published article in the Neue Zürcher Zeitung and with a short video, showing how these two concepts have a common history and future.

Predators Help Prey Adapt to an Uncertain Future
Predators Help Prey Adapt to an Uncertain Future
What effect does extinction of species have on the evolution of surviving species' Evolutionary biologists have investigated this question by conducting a field experiment with a leaf galling fly and its predatory enemies. They found that losing its natural enemies could make it more difficult for the prey to adapt to future environments.

Coronavirus lockdown: Every second person feels more stressed
Coronavirus lockdown: Every second person feels more stressed
A survey by the University of Basel of over 10,000 people from throughout Switzerland has shown that around half of respondents feel more stressed in lockdown than they did before the coronavirus crisis. In the lockdown phase under study, the frequency of severe depressive symptoms almost tripled. On the other hand, 26% of respondents reported a drop in stress during lockdown.

Understanding Congenital Heart Defects, One Chicken at a Time
Approximately 10 percent of infants are born with a congenital heart defect, with one of the most common being persistent truncus arteriosus-a hole in the heart. In a healthy baby, deoxygenated blood is pumped through a one-way blood vessel to the lungs, where it becomes oxygenated and is pumped through an adjacent blood vessel back to the heart, like two directions of highway traffic cleanly separated by a median.
