A team of researchers at George Washington University said they have created a new detector that combines a laser with a mass spectrometer to provide instant analysis."We are talking about less than a second for an analysis," Akos Vertes, a professor of biochemistry and molecular biology at George Washington University, told Reuters.The device, being called laser ablation electrospray ionization or LAESI, is the first of its kind. It works by using a laser to vaporize tiny samples which the...


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.'
