Excavations carried out at the 14th Century city wall of Granada have unearthed a brick kiln located next to stratified layers of bones and ashes. According to researchers from the University of Granada (UGR), this in situ evidence suggests that this kiln was used to manufacture a coating for the wall, which incorporated powder made from burnt bones. "The bricks from the kiln that was discovered showed evidence of melting (blackened surfaces and small bubbles), which indicates that...

By Chakraborty, A Ray, R K; Sangal, S An attempt has been made to characterize the microstructural and textural aspects of the substrate and the coated layer on industrially produced galvannealed interstitial-free (IF) steel. A number of experimental techniques were used for this purpose. The major part of the coating was found to be made up of the delta layer, favorable for good formability. The texture of the substrate steel contained a sharp gamma component, which imparts high deep...

Just as test pilots push planes to explore their limits, researchers at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) are probing the newest microscope technology to further improve measurement accuracy at the nanoscale. Better nanoscale measurements are critical for setting standards and improving production in the semiconductor and nanomanufacturing industries. This new microscope technology uses helium ions to generate the signal used to image extremely small objects, a...

There are few things more irritating than a fly buzzing around the house. South Africans have an unconventional solution to the problem. They hang up a bunch of Roridula gorgonias leaves. Attracted to the shiny adhesive droplets on the leaf's hairs, the hapless pest is soon trapped by the natural flypaper. However, this is not the end of the story. Each R. gorgonias plant is home to a population of Pameridea roridulae (mirid bugs), which dine on the trapped insects. Yet the mirid bugs...

El Capitan Precious Metals, Inc. (OTCBB:ECPN) reports that the Company's metallurgical R&D initiative involving several large composites drill hole samples of the El Capitan deposit have completed key project milestones. The tin collection fusion procedure was performed on two separate drilling composites in late June, and the subsequent electrolytic parting process was concluded in mid-July. The "anode mud" concentrate was collected, dried, and then subjected to both Scanning Electron...

By Jeremy Lovell LONDON (Reuters) - A new technique allowing virtual dissections of half-billion year old fossil embryos is producing the first three-dimensional images of the dawn of life. It reveals a universe of detail impossible using previous methods, and researchers at Bristol University in southwestern England said it was pushing back the frontiers of science much as the scanning electron microscope did half a century ago. "We are looking at the dawn of life," lead researcher Phil...
