Recycled Bulletproof Vest Batteries Deliver Five Times More Energy

A new development in lithium-sulfur batteries at the University of Michigan has showed that recycled bulletproof vest batteries deliver five times more energy. Since lithium-ion batteries need unethical cobalt mining activities and produce a lot of carbon dioxide (CO2), this new innovation would be a far more powerful and environmentally friendly replacement for them.

Using The MACHETE Method, Scientists Can Now Analyze Copy Number Alterations In Cancer Genomes

Using The MACHETE Method, Scientists Can Now Analyze Copy Number Alterations In Cancer Genomes

Using the MACHETE method, scientists can now analyze copy number alterations in cancer genomes. Poorer survival was shown in mouse models of pancreatic cancer and melanoma when researchers used MACHETE to discover that a significant deletion often destroys a cluster of interferon genes. Possible biomarker of immunotherapy success: intact tumor interferons. Francisco "Pancho" Barriga and Kaloyan Tsanov of the Sloan Kettering Institute don't want the name of their new research method to take away from their findings, which give new information about a genetic change that causes about 15% of all cancers and may help doctors find patients who are likely to respond to immunotherapies.

The Eyes Of Some Young Fruit Flies Appear To Bulge Out Of Their Head, Scientists Find

The Eyes Of Some Young Fruit Flies Appear To Bulge Out Of Their Head, Scientists Find

Despite the awkwardness of the transition to maturity, at least our eyes don't protrude from our skulls on stalks longer than our legs. But the eyes of some young fruit flies appear to bulge out of their head. According to Science News, a recent research found that the eye-up metamorphosis in P. tangliangi, one of the stalkier species, only takes approximately 50 minutes. The eyes of a fly are permanently fixed in an outward position, like a selfie stick, because when the thin eyestalks are stretched, they darken and harden.

Combining Asthma Medication With Allergy Shots May Be Effective In Treating Cat Allergies

Combining Asthma Medication With Allergy Shots May Be Effective In Treating Cat Allergies

Injecting the immune system with lab-made antibodies may better prepare it to fight against cat allergies than regular allergy injections alone. Combining asthma medication with allergy shots may be effective in treating cat allergies. Allergy symptoms were also decreased for up to a year after treatment ended, according to recent research. Immunotherapy, or allergy injections, has been used for over a century to alleviate allergy symptoms including itchiness, watery eyes, sneezing, a runny nose, and congestion.

Invasive Asian Mosquito Linked To Major Malaria Outbreak In Ethiopia, Study Finds

Invasive Asian Mosquito Linked To Major Malaria Outbreak In Ethiopia, Study Finds

More than 2,400 individuals were ill with malaria in Dire Dawa, Ethiopia, in the first quarter of 2022. Scientists have found invasive Asian mosquito linked to major malaria outbreak in Ethiopia. The research, which was presented on November 1 in Seattle at the annual conference of the American Society of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene, shows that the invading vector is capable of fueling malarial epidemics. The species' ability to thrive in human-dominated areas is cause for concern since it might expose millions more Africans to malaria.

Wind Turbines Offer The Potential To Generate Electricity And Sequester Carbon Dioxide Simultaneously

Wind Turbines Offer The Potential To Generate Electricity And Sequester Carbon Dioxide Simultaneously

Wind turbines offer the potential to generate electricity and sequester carbon dioxide simultaneously. Wind turbines, according to computer models, have been shown to pull polluted air from above a city or chimney into their wake. As a result, more carbon dioxide will reach the equipment that can extract it from the air. At a conference of the American Physical Society's Division of Fluid Dynamics on November 21 in Indianapolis, the researchers aim to explain their simulations and a wind tunnel test of a scaled-down system.

Quakes On Mars Hint There May Be Volcanic Magma Underground

Quakes On Mars Hint There May Be Volcanic Magma Underground

Quakes on Mars hint there may be volcanic magma underground. Magma clues found beneath suggest that Mars is not the geologically dead place we always imagined it was. Volcanic activity on Mars is known to have occurred in the past, although not for tens of millions of years. After studying a cluster of more than 20 seismic occurrences on Mars using data from NASA's InSight lander mission, Simon Stähler of ETH Zurich in Switzerland and his coworkers have found what is likely a magma deposit in Cerberus Fossae, an area of fissures produced by fault lines.

Insects Contribute To Electric Field In Atmosphere As Thunderstorm Cloud, Study Finds

Insects Contribute To Electric Field In Atmosphere As Thunderstorm Cloud, Study Finds

By measuring the electrical fields surrounding swarming honeybees, scientists have determined that insects contribute to electric field in atmosphere. This kind of energy is used by insects to locate food, by spiders to push themselves through the air, and by humans to influence weather patterns. The study's results, which were published in the journal iScience, show that organisms have an effect on the electrical properties of the air around them.

Protons Might Be Stretchier Than They Should Be, Scientists Reveal

Protons Might Be Stretchier Than They Should Be, Scientists Reveal

According to recent findings, protons might be stretchier than they should be. However, physicists are split on whether or not this anomaly will remain in future observations and whether or not this means we need to rethink our basic knowledge of the proton's structure. The proton comprises three smaller particles called quarks, which are bound together by even smaller particles called gluons and extremely fleeting "virtual" particles. When an electric or magnetic force acts on a proton, its charged parts move around inside the proton. This causes the proton to change shape or stretch.

A New Study Questions The Value Of Colonoscopy Screening

A New Study Questions The Value Of Colonoscopy Screening

The key outcome of the experiment was the no value of colonoscopy screening in lowering cancer mortality over a 10-year period, which sparked a media frenzy. This finding contradicts the widely held idea that universal participation in this screening would effectively eradicate the vast majority of cases of colorectal cancer.

How A Month Without Alcohol Affects Your Body

Everyone is familiar with the terms "dry January" and "sober October," which refer to a limited period of time during which participants deliberately abstain from drinking alcohol as a way to "reset" or "reboot" their bodies. Avoiding alcoholic beverages does not have to be a passing fad that is limited to a particular calendar month.

Ivory Seized Decades Ago Is Still Being Discovered In Raids

Ivory Seized Decades Ago Is Still Being Discovered In Raids

Researchers have found elephant ivory seized decades ago is still being discovered in raids. The Burundian authorities have been keeping the tusks in storage for some time now after seizing them from poachers. Researchers in this study employed DNA and carbon dating to prove that some of the stockpiled materials had made their way into the hands of traffickers. The authors argue that confiscated materials should not be kept in archives.

Sneaky Omicron Mutation Could Lead To An Outbreak Of COVID-19 This Fall

Sneaky Omicron Mutation Could Lead To An Outbreak Of COVID-19 This Fall

Winter and fall have not been kind to us in recent years, but a sneaky omicron mutation could lead to an outbreak of COVID-19 this fall. In 2020, COVID-19 instances started to increase in October. And last year, we were, in a sense, in the quiet before the storm as the omicron variety started on its path to global dominance at the end of November, while the delta-driven case counts were steadily declining. What will happen as omicron continues to develop and many people stop using masks in our third pandemic winter?
