New Device Captures Nano Movies

January 31, 2006 7:00 pm | News | Comments

While a microphone is useful for many things, you probably wouldn’t guess that it could help make movies of molecules or measure physical and chemical properties of a material at the nanoscale with just one poke…

Technique Used to Examine Ancient Fossil Could Find Life on Mars

January 31, 2006 7:00 pm | News | Comments

UCLA paleobiologist J. William Schopf and colleagues have produced 3-D images of ancient fossils -- 650 million to 850 million years old -- preserved in rocks, an achievement that has never been done before

It’s About Time

December 31, 2005 7:00 pm | by Bill Weaver, Ph.D. | Articles | Comments

A new data acquisition paradigm Bill Weaver, Ph.D. "Happy Nu (?) Year!" Yeah, that's an oldie and not very goodie. I guess the years spent in a darkened laser lab often increase the perceived humor of low wit. Upon reaching the end of our unit on optics each year, I try out the hilarity of "What's new?" — Answer: "c/?" on my class and I get the same crickets I am hearing now. All groaning aside, the relationship between frequency, nu (?) , wavelength, lambda (?), and the propagation speed of a radiating energy wave, (c) is the foundational model for a large number of processes

Application Frameworks for High Performance and Grid Computing

December 31, 2005 7:00 pm | by Gabrielle Allen, Ph.D., and Edward Seidel, Ph.D. | Articles | Comments

Today’s approaches combine expertise in computer science with applied mathematics, engineering, science and the humanities Gabrielle Allen, Ph.D., and Edward Seidel, Ph.D. From engineering gas turbine blade cooling methods for more efficient engines, to determining the optimal location for oil wells in the Gulf of Mexico, advanced computational techniques are becoming increasingly important as we study and interpret the world. From predicting complex processes in nature such as hurricane-induced storm surges to the gravitational waves emitted by the collision of two black holes, solving these Grand Challenge problems cannot be effectively tackled by a single researcher, or even a single group

Electronic Study Management

December 31, 2005 7:00 pm | by Michael H. Elliott | Articles | Comments

New technology to increase the efficiency of pre-clinical studies Michael H. Elliott Back in the late 1970s, I was working in a biology research institution evaluating the metabolism of antipsychotic drugs by performing in vivo animal studies. To manage these studies, our team took pen to paper and tracked subjects, controls, observations and analytical results in a bound laboratory notebook. We soon discovered and purchased the new IBM personal computer. No longer did we have to vie for time on the mainframe; we could now write our own programs

Emerging Intelligent Information Security Systems

December 31, 2005 7:00 pm | by Eric Ahlm, CISSP | Articles | Comments

Finding the best methods to automate threat and vulnerability management systems Eric Ahlm, CISSP Have all the challenges of securing a corporate network been solved? I was posed this question by an investment analyst several months ago and was stumped for the right response. On one hand, security has become more complex than ever before. The challenges of solving compliance, the rate of new threat emergence, and the increasing means of attack vectors keep security management dynamic. However, security technology has evolved dramatically

Aggregating Printed Analytical Records

December 31, 2005 7:00 pm | by Joseph A. Hofmann, Jr., Ph.D.; and Joseph Schuster | Articles | Comments

Sharing analytical information in its entire printed form is possible today Joseph A. Hofmann, Jr., Ph.D.; and Joseph Schuster Vast amounts of paper are used to record analytical data generated in chemical, biochemical and microbiological laboratories across the supply chain. Paper-based data generally consists of analytical information entered into notebooks and on preprinted forms. Even automated systems, such as benchtop equipment and other processing mechanisms, produce paper reports that are filed with other paper records. Paper records make sharing of analytical information across an enterprise challenging

Mathematics and 21st Century Biology: Some thoughts on the matter from the NRC

December 31, 2005 7:00 pm | by John A. Wass, Ph.D. | Articles | Comments

The above title is from a recent report from the National Academies that attempts to identify opportunities and challenges presented by the rapid convergence of knowledge in mathematics and the life sciences. If the interested reader can get by the rather stiff and formal language of the Executive Summary, then the rest of the document is rather good reading

Universal Naming Convention and Drive Mapping

December 31, 2005 7:00 pm | by John R. Joyce, Ph.D. | Blogs | Comments

I’d thought that software evolution had progressed well beyond this topic. However, recent questions that I’ve received regarding accessing a file suggest there is some truth to the adage that, frequently, the old ways are better. However, to both include all of the information that you’ll need and to slide it past Editorial, we’ll have to keep things fairly terse, so stay with me!

Alternate Universe: Headhunters warp reality

December 31, 2005 7:00 pm | by Randy C. Hice | Blogs | Comments

I admit I'm spoiled by the Denver airport with inlaid mosaics of marble and bronze depicting Rocky Mountain life, and signage that could direct a walking drunk to his/her concourse with ease. Sure, there was the matter of one of the teepee-like fabric cones collapsing under an onslaught of snow, but as I wasn't actually there for the lawsuit bonanza, I prefer to ignore it.
