 Solution to killer superbug found in Norway
Solution to killer superbug found in Norway
Aker University Hospital is a dingy place to heal. The floors are streaked and scratched. A light layer of dust coats the blood pressure monitors. A faint stench of urine and bleach wafts from a pile of soiled bedsheets dropped in a corner.

Look closer, however, at a microscopic level, and this place is pristine. picked by suebe 3 days ago

 Pressure to stop antibiotics in agriculture
Pressure to stop antibiotics in agriculture
The mystery started the day farmer Russ Kremer got between a jealous boar and a sow in heat. The boar gored Kremer in the knee with a razor-sharp tusk.
A strep infection spread, threatening his life and baffling doctors. Two months of multiple antibiotics did virtually nothing.

The answer was flowing in the veins of the boar. picked by bingo 1 week ago

There are facts and data that are ignored in the maelstrom of social and economic agendas swirling about Copenhagen. picked by bernardblack 2 weeks ago

 Putting Bacteria To Work
Putting Bacteria To Work
A team of scientists from the Argonne National Laboratory and Northwestern University have figured out how to get bacteria to spin tiny gears. Though the gears themselves are small, the bacteria are even smaller, so apparently it takes hundreds of them swimming in swarms to produce enough energy to turn the gears. picked by suebe 2 weeks ago

 The Physics of Space Battles
The Physics of Space Battles
A big spacecraft could have a lot more armor to keep its systems and crew safe, more room for large fuel tanks and electrical power supplies, and larger mass to resist impulses from cannon recoil. However, a smaller craft would be less visible to radar, more maneuverable, and could achieve higher accelerations for constant engine thrust. picked by Bornbad 3 weeks ago
