redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online A team of researchers at Tel Aviv University (TAU) has developed a way to print biocompatible micro-machines - tiny sensors and motors - that could lead to improvements in medical devices like bionic arms. Such tiny micro-electromechanical systems, or MEMS, are already in widespread use today in a variety of applications from consumer electronics to automobiles and medicine. These conventional MEMS are typically produced from...


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.'
