AdrProVita makes it easier to provide EMF radiation protection for this Father's Day. Baltimore, MD (PRWEB) June 13, 2013 With the Father's day just around the corner, this Father's Day is the perfect time to show appreciation for all good fathers by protecting them from EMF radiation and by shining light on EMFs as a health hazard that is not visible to the naked eye but exists around the house and office. EMF radiation is one of those hazards. EMF radiation roots from residential and...

A recent study published by JAMA Pediatrics examined the rates and radiation dosages of CT scans used in children. The medical imaging experts at Dayton Children´s want to calm parents´ fears and help them understand the benefits versus risks of CT scans for children. Dayton, OH (PRWEB) June 13, 2013 Dayton Children´s Hospital is a strong advocate for safe and low dose radiation for children. A June 10 study published by JAMA Pediatrics examined the rates and radiation...

Moon Radiation Study Reduce Health Risks Astronauts
2013-06-12 10:23:11

April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online A new study from the space scientists at the University of New Hampshire (UNH) and the Southwest Research Institute (SwRI) reports that data collected by NASA's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) reveals that lighter materials like plastics provide effective shielding against the radiation hazards faced by astronauts during extended space travel. The findings, published in the journal Space Weather, could help reduce human health risks...

Reducing Pediatric CT Scans Cuts Cancer Rates
2013-06-11 11:44:09

Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Computed tomography (CT) has become an invaluable tool for diagnostic and research purposes, and a new study in the journal JAMA Pediatrics has found that eliminating unnecessary scans and lowering the radiation doses of some scans could lower the risk of developing imaging-related cancers in children by 62 percent. The study concluded that the 4 million CT scans performed on children in the US each year could lead to approximately...

Spain's Solar Radiation Increasing
2013-06-06 16:01:54

FECYT - Spanish Foundation for Science and Technology Solar radiation in Spain has increased by 2.3% every decade since the 1980s, according to a study by researchers from the University of Girona and the Federal Institute of Technology (ETH) in Zurich. This increase is linked to the decreased presence of clouds, which has increased the amount of direct radiation reaching us from the Sun. "The mean annual G series over Spain shows a tendency to increase during the 1985-2010 period,...

Extragalactic Ankle And Galactic Knee
2013-06-03 17:42:35

Karlsruhe Institute of Technology It is obvious from the data of the KASCADE-Grande experiment at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) that the so-called “knee” of the cosmic rays, a bend in the energy spectrum at high energies, is located at different energies for light and heavy particles. As regards light particles, the scientists have now found that the energy spectrum flattens again beyond the knee and forms a type of “ankle”. This structure indicates...

Incoming Solar Radiation Impacts By Various Weather Cycles
2012-08-22 13:30:39

The above image looks at the month of March for the three cycles known as Normal Phase, El-Nino, and La-Nina. The data was recorded for the city of Honolulu Hawaii, during the month of March. Remember this is just data for one month during these cycles. Normal: During this cycle incoming solar activity was upwards to 48% efficient for the month, producing less than 50% of the month which is due to the large amount of daily cloud cover that is seen on the island during the early morning and...

Incoming Solar Radiation Impacts By Various Weather Cycles

The above image looks at the month of March for the three cycles known as Normal Phase, El-Nino, and La-Nina. The data was recorded for the city of Austin Texas. Remember this is just data for one month during these cycles. Normal: During this cycle incoming solar activity was upwards to 60% efficient for the month, producing enough solar energy that only 40% of the month would have not had strong incoming radiation. EL-Nino: This phase provided the area with an extended number of...

Electromagnetic Spectrum -- The electromagnetic spectrum describes the various types of electromagnetic radiation based on their wavelengths. Radio, representing wavelengths from a few feet to well over a mile, is at one end of the spectrum. Gamma ray radiation is at the other end: the wavelength of the harder types is so short, in the subatomic range, that we do not have instruments capable of directly measuring it. While the above classification scheme is generally accurate, in...

Electromagnetic Radiation -- Electromagnetic radiation is a combination of oscillating electric and magnetic fields propagating through space and carrying energy from one place to another. Light is a form of electromagnetic radiation. The theoretical study of electromagnetic radiation is called electrodynamics, a subfield of electromagnetism. When any wire (or other conducting object such as an antenna) conducts alternating current, electromagnetic radiation is propagated at the same...

Solar Radiation -- Solar radiation is radiant energy emitted by the sun due to nuclear fusion reactions. Fusion is the process whereby stars produce huge quantities of energy from the fusion of hydrogen or helium, in one of the most efficient processes of energy generation. The radiation referred to is usually electromagnetic energy, particularly infrared radiation, visible light, and ultraviolet. Some stars are known to emit radiation of other wavelengths. Solar neutrinos are a...

  • Nautical, the visiting and carousing of sailors in the Greenland ships.
This word is apparently from a confusion of two similar Dutch words: 'mallemerok,' a foolish woman, and 'mallemok,' a name for some persons among the crew of a whaling vessel.
