Tiny Bubbles In Your Metallic Glass May Be Sign Of Trouble
2013-06-06 14:36:18

Johns Hopkins University Bubbles in a champagne glass may add a festive fizz to the drink, but microscopic bubbles that form in a material called metallic glass can signal serious trouble. In this normally high-strength material, bubbles may indicate that a brittle breakdown is in progress. That´s why Johns Hopkins researchers used computer simulations to study how these bubbles form and expand when a piece of metallic glass is pulled outward by negative pressure, such as the...

Urine, Hair Samples Overestimate Mercury Exposure From Dental Fillings
2013-03-21 10:37:02

April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online A new study from the University of Michigan reveals that a common test currently used to determine mercury exposure from dental amalgam fillings may significantly overestimate the amount of toxic metal released from fillings. Although scientists agree that mercury vapor is released into the mouth by dental amalgam fillings, the amount released remains controversial, as does the question of the health risk posed by this release....

Researchers from North Carolina State University have developed a new technique for creating stronger, lightweight magnesium alloys that have potential structural applications in the automobile and aerospace industries. Engineers constantly seek strong, lightweight materials for use in cars and planes to improve fuel efficiency. Their goal is to develop structural materials with a high “specific strength,” which is defined as a material´s strength divided by its density....

A UN treaty signed in January, 2013 mandates the phase-out of amalgam fillings worldwide due to health concerns, and Dr. Daniel Strader of Dallas Designer Smiles in Dallas, TX is being recognized locally for implementing a no-amalgam policy nearly thirty years ago. Dr. Strader has recently received top reviews on third party industry review sites andhas been featured on CBS News for his knowledge about the dangers of amalgam fillings and efforts in improving the health and safety of his...


Word of the Day
Cthulhu
  • A gigantic fictional humanoid alien god being described with a head resembling an octopus and dragon wings and claws, around whom an insane cult developed.
  • Pertaining to the mythos of Cthulhu and additional otherworldly beings created by H. P. Lovecraft or inspired by his writings and imitators.
This word was invented in 1926 by H.P. Lovecraft for his short story, 'The Call of Cthulhu.' 'Cthulhu' may be based on the word 'chthonic,' which in Greek mythology refers to the underworld.
