First-ever simulation of a stretching silver nanowire over a period of a millisecond Very tiny wires, called nanowires, made from such metals as silver and gold, may play a crucial role as electrical or mechanical switches in the development of future-generation ultrasmall nanodevices. Making nanodevices work will require a deep understanding of how these and other nanostructures can be engineered and fabricated as well as their resultant strengths and weaknesses. How mechanical properties...

Most parts of living organisms come packaged with ribbons. The ribbons are proteins"”chains of amino acids that must fold into three-dimensional structures to work properly. But when for any reason the ribbons fold incorrectly, bad things can happen, and in humans misfolded-protein disorders include Alzheimer's and Parkinson's diseases.Scientists have for the past three decades tried to understand what makes proteins fold into functional units and why it happens, and several...

A report by the World Technology Evaluation Center shows U.S. competitiveness in a number of computer simulation-driven fields is being eroded. Science and engineering are advancing rapidly worldwide, due in part to increasingly more powerful computer simulations. But the report says most advanced supercomputers require programming skills that too few U.S. researchers possess. The startling news was how quickly our assumptions have to change, said Phillip Westmoreland, program director for...

PITTSBURGH, April 29 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- High school and undergraduate students now have a ringside seat to watch atoms and molecules in super-slow motion and vivid color, as they jostle and bump each other within the cozy environs of a human cell or a beaker on a lab bench. In "Big Numbers in Small Spaces: Simulating Atoms, Molecules and Brownian Motion," students are invited to consider how many molecules are in a single drop of water, or a single cell, and then to fly in and find...

Word of the Day
cock-a-hoop
  • Exultant; jubilant; triumphant; on the high horse.
  • Tipsy; slightly intoxicated.
This word may come from the phrase 'to set cock on hoop,' or 'to drink festively.' Its origin otherwise is unclear. A theory, according to the Word Detective, is that it's a 'transliteration of the French phrase 'coq a huppe,' meaning a rooster displaying its crest ('huppe') in a pose of proud defiance.' Therefore, 'cock-a-hoop' would 'liken a drunken man to a boastful and aggressive rooster.'
