Mr. Appliance Offers Top Tips for Resolutions That Bit the Dust Waco, Texas (PRWEB) February 25, 2014 The statistics behind successful new year’s resolutions can be discouraging and downright depressing. According to the Journal of Clinical Psychology, only eight percent of Americans who resolve to make a change stick with the resolution throughout the full year. There are several reasons for the dismal success rate, three of which are most prevalent: the resolutions lack structure,...

Why is it so hard for people to keep the promises they make to themselves every New Year? Qigong master teacher Vicki Dello Joio weighs in on what you can do to make resolutions that Stick. San Francisco Bay Area, CA (PRWEB) December 28, 2012 Statistics show that as few as 8% of people actually succeed in keeping their New Year´s Resolutions throughout the year. What´s even worse is that when the next year comes around, they end up beating themselves up with last year´s...

(Ivanhoe Newswire) -- The structure of biomolecules is of great interest for medicine and biology because their shape often determines their function. The use of new tools called free-electron lasers (FELs) allows scientists to obtain high-resolution structural insight into macromolecules. "The exceptionally intense X-ray pulses possible with FELs open the door for analyzing completely new classes of biomolecules like proteins from the cell membrane, that are hard or nearly impossible to...

A new semi-automated tool called pathwalking makes it possible to generate a "first draft" model of a protein fold taken from near-atomic resolution images of between three and six angstroms (Ã…), said researchers at the National Center for Macromolecular Imaging in the department of biochemistry at Baylor College of Medicine. In a report that appears online in the journal Structure, the BCM team describes the development of the semi-automated protocol that enables researchers...

Mainz method of electron microscopy in international demand / Structural analysis of zeolite published in Science A radical new way of making structures visible at the nano level has been developed at Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz (JGU). This new method makes it possible to determine with precision the arrangement of atoms and molecules in a diverse range of materials from cement to pharmaceuticals. The procedure, which is still in its infancy, comes from the field of electron...

Cryo-electron microscopy images shed light on virus structure, function UCLA researchers report in the April 30 edition of the journal Cell that they have imaged a virus structure at a resolution high enough to effectively "see" atoms, the first published instance of imaging biological complexes at such a resolution. The research team, led by Hong Zhou, UCLA professor of microbiology, immunology and molecular genetics, used cryo-electron microscopy to image the structure at 3.3 angstroms. An...
