Notorious among athletes and trainers as career killers, Achilles tendon injuries are among the most devastating.

Radio Carbon Dating Improved With Sediment Measurementss
2012-10-19 13:02:37

A research team from Oxford University's Radiocarbon Accelerator Unit has found a more accurate benchmark for dating materials, especially for older objects, from a series of radiocarbon measurements from Japan's Lake Suigetsu.

Cold Cases Heat Up To Identify Remains Through Lawrence Livermore Approach
2012-10-10 16:01:46

In an effort to identify the thousands of John/Jane Doe cold cases in the United States, a Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory researcher and a team of international collaborators have found a multidisciplinary approach to identifying the remains of missing persons.

Ancient Carbon Resurfacing In Lakes
2012-10-05 08:04:08

A new study is challenging current models of long-term carbon storage in lakes and rivers by revealing that a significant amount of carbon released into the atmosphere from lakes and rivers in Southern Quebec, Canada is approximately 1,000 to 3,000 years old.

'Faster-Ticking Clock' Indicates Early Solar System May Have Evolved Faster Than We Think
2012-05-02 07:00:54

Our solar system is four and a half billion years old, but its formation may have occurred over a shorter period of time than we previously thought, says an international team of researchers from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem and universities and laboratories in the US and Japan.

Individual atoms of a certain chemical element can be very stubborn when it comes to separation, mainly because techniques rely on a difference in chemical and physical properties — atoms are almost identical in both regards.

Rising CO2 Levels At End Of Ice Age Not Linked To Pacific Ocean
2011-10-03 12:56:29

At the end of the last Ice Age, atmospheric carbon dioxide levels rose rapidly as the planet warmed; scientists have long hypothesized that the source was CO2 released from the deep ocean.


Word of the Day
postliminy
  • In Roman antiquity, the return of a person who had been banished, or taken prisoner by an enemy, to his old condition and former privileges.
  • In international law, that right by virtue of which persons and things taken by an enemy in war are restored to their former status when coming again under the power of the nation to which they belonged.
The word 'postliminy' comes from a Latin word meaning 'threshold'.
