Water is the second most essential need for survival after oxygen. With 70% of the human body being made up of water, an article by portable water filter company, Sureaqua, has provided an important reminder of just how important rehydrating is during working out, and what the effects of not enough or too much water can have. (PRWEB) March 04, 2013 The human body is made up of about 70% water. The average blood stream consists of 75% water. The human brain is made up of 75% water. The...

Researchers Reconfirm Original Tetrahedral Model Of Water Molecules
2013-02-13 04:45:42

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online For all those who worried back in 2004 that the sky was falling because the original model of the molecular structure of water toppled out, have no fear, because things can go back to the way they used to be. Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz (JGU) researchers confirmed the original tetrahedral model, after an international research group challenged the model nine-years ago, claiming that water molecules form bonds only with two...

Two of the most widely used nanoparticles (NPs) accumulate in soybeans – second only to corn as a key food crop in the United States – in ways previously shown to have the potential to adversely affect the crop yields and nutritional quality, a new study has found. It appears in the journal ACS Nano. Jorge L. Gardea-Torresdey and colleagues cite rapid increases in commercial and industrial uses of NPs, the building blocks of a nanotechnology industry projected to put $1...

Metals contained in nanoparticles can enter into the food chain Scientists have, for the first time, traced the nanoparticles taken up from the soil by crop plants and analyzed the chemical states of their metallic elements. Zinc was shown to dissolve and accumulate throughout the plants, whereas the element cerium did not dissolve into plant tissue. The results contribute to the controversial debate on plant toxicity of nanoparticles and whether engineered nanoparticles can enter into the...

Nitric Oxide Keeps Stroke-damaged Brain From Repairing Itself
2013-02-04 15:13:42

Sanford-Burnham Medical Research Institute In stroke and other neurological disorders, nitric oxide damages neurons and blocks the brain's ability to repair itself Nitric oxide, a gaseous molecule produced in the brain, can damage neurons. When the brain produces too much nitric oxide, it contributes to the severity and progression of stroke and neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer's. Researchers at Sanford-Burnham Medical Research Institute recently discovered that nitric oxide...

Water will become the new oil, and unlike oil, life without water is not possible. G and E Partners brings to the marketplace this patented technology that makes pure water from the air - why buy bottled water when you can make it? No more bottles, jugs, water storage areas or invoices! Fort Bragg, NC (PRWEB) January 30, 2013 Water, following air, is the second most important resource required for human survival. One of the biggest challenges facing the world is often completely overlooked,...

Indium is a chemical element in the periodic table that has the symbol In and atomic number 49. This rare, soft, malleable and easily fusible poor metal, is chemically similar to aluminium or gallium but looks more like zinc (zinc ores are also the primary source of this metal). Its current primary application is to form transparent electrodes from Indium tin oxide in liquid crystal displays. It is also widely used in thin-films to form lubricated layers (during World War II it was widely...

There are a number of iron oxides: Iron oxides Iron(II) oxide or ferrous oxide (FeO) The black-coloured powder in particular can cause explosions as it readily ignites. Iron(III) oxide or ferric oxide (Fe2O3) known in its natural state as hematite or haematite, but also purified for use as a coating in magnetic audio and computer media, where it is known as ferric oxide. Also known as rouge. Iron(II,III) oxide or ferrous ferric oxide (Fe3O4), better known as the black-coloured...

Limonite Limonite is a ferric hydrate of varying composition, the generic formula is frequently written as FeO(OH)·nH2O, although this is not entirely accurate as Limonite often contains a varying amount of oxide compared to hydroxide. Together with hematite, it is mined as ore for the production of iron. Limonite is heavy and yellowish-brown. It is not a true mineral, however, but a mixture of similar hydrated iron oxide minerals, mostly Goethite. Limonite forms mostly in or near...

Magnetite is a magnetic mineral form of both iron(II) oxide and iron(III) oxide or (iron(II,III) oxide), with chemical formula Fe3O4, one of several iron oxides and a member of the spinel group. Magnetite is the most magnetic of all the minerals on Earth, and these magnetic properties led to lodestone being used as an early form of magnetic compass. Small grains of magnetite occur in almost all igneous rocks and metamorphic rocks as well as many sedimentary rocks. Magnetite is a...

attercop
  • A spider.
  • Figuratively, a peevish, testy, ill-natured person.
'Attercop' comes from the Old English 'atorcoppe,' where 'atter' means 'poison, venom' and‎ 'cop' means 'spider.' 'Coppa' is a derivative of 'cop,' top, summit, round head, or 'copp,' cup, vessel, which refers to 'the supposed venomous properties of spiders,' says the OED. 'Copp' is still found in the word 'cobweb.'
