Radar adds technological twist to age-old cranberry counting process
A farmer harvests cranberries from a flooded marsh at Cranberry Creek Cranberries Inc. in Necedah, Wisconsin. UW-Madison engineers have invented a device that automates the process of counting cranberries on the bush and estimating the harvest. Photo: Jeff Miller It's a quintessential cranberry scene: Thigh-deep in a flooded bog full of millions of floating berries, two farmers extol the merits of products made from the tart red fruit.

Task interrupted: A plan for returning helps you move on
Get interrupted at work much? Making a quick plan for returning to and completing the task you're leaving will help you focus better on the interrupting work, according to new research from the University of Washington. Taking a minute when interrupted to create a "ready-to-resume” plan can help you disengage and move on, avoiding what Sophie Leroy , an assistant professor in the UW Bothell School of Business , calls "attention residue” - that is, continuing to worry and think about the last work when you need to pivot fully to the new task.

The HLF gene protects blood stem cells by maintaining them in a resting state
The HLF gene protects blood stem cells by maintaining them in a resting state
The HLF gene is necessary for maintaining our blood stem cells in a resting state, which is crucial for ensuring normal blood production. This has been shown by a new research study from Lund University in Sweden published in Cell Reports. "The study confirms several previous studies that show the HLF gene's significance in blood formation", says Mattias Magnusson who led the new study.

Being bilingual may help autistic children
Children with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) often have a hard time switching gears from one task to another. But being bilingual may actually make it a bit easier for them to do so, according to a new study which was recently published in Child Development. "This is a novel and surprising finding," says Prof. Aparna Nadig, the senior author of the paper, from the School of Communication Sciences and Disorders at McGill University.

Novel 3D printing technique yields high-performance composites
CAMBRIDGE, MA - Nature has produced exquisite composite materials-wood, bone, teeth, and shells, for example-that combine light weight and density with desirable mechanical properties such as stiffness, strength and damage tolerance. Since ancient civilizations first combined straw and mud to form bricks, people have fabricated engineered composites of increasing performance and complexity.
