Female Squid Have Two Ways To Switch Color According To Study
2013-09-19 11:30:34

University of California - Santa Barbara The female common market squid –– AKA Doryteuthis opalescens –– may not be so common after all. Researchers at UC Santa Barbara have discovered that this glamorous cephalopod possesses a pair of stripes that can sparkle with rainbow iridescence. These flank a single stripe, which can go from complete transparency to bright white. This marks the first time that switchable white cells based on reflectins –– the proteins responsible for...

New Evidence To Help In Search For Charge 'Stripes' In Superconductors
2013-09-03 11:17:10

Brookhaven National Laboratory Findings identify signature that will help scientists investigate and understand materials that carry current with no resistance Scientists at the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Brookhaven National Laboratory have identified a series of clues that particular arrangements of electrical charges known as "stripes" may play a role in superconductivity—the ability of some materials to carry electric current with no energy loss. But uncovering the detailed...

Researchers find nanostructures made of DNA strands can encapsulate, release small-molecule drugs Nanoscale "cages" made from strands of DNA can encapsulate small-molecule drugs and release them in response to a specific stimulus, McGill University researchers report in a new study. The research, published online Sept. 1 in Nature Chemistry, marks a step toward the use of biological nanostructures to deliver drugs to diseased cells in patients. The findings could also open up new...

Door Opened For Solid State Physics By Berlin Researchers

Helmholtz Association Laser processes observed with X-rays on a solid Without the currently available plethora of X-ray methods, basic research in the physical sciences would be unthinkable. The methods are used in solid state physics, in the analysis of biological structures, and even art historians have X-rays to thank for many new insights. Now, scientists at the Helmholtz Center Berlin (HZB) have identified yet another area of application. The team around Dr. Martin Beye and Prof....

DNA Detection Breakthrough Could Lead To Improved Tuberculosis Treatments

Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Minor mutations in DNA code can make for major malfunctions, and a breakthrough technique has allowed scientists to spot genetic changes with greater precision than ever. According to a new report in the journal Nature Chemistry, the new method can look at a specific DNA sequence and pull out a single mutation. "We've really improved on previous approaches because our solution doesn't require any complicated reactions or added...

Sky
2004-10-19 04:45:44

Sky -- Although almost everyone have seen it, sky is hard to be defined precisely. Generally, sky is the space seen when one looks upward from the surface of a planet. Some people define sky as the denser gaseous zone of a planet's atmosphere. Clouds, rainbows and weather all occur amongst a planet's sky. In astronomy, the sky is divided into many regions, called constellations. The blue colour of the daytime sky results from the selective scattering of light rays. When the sunlight...

  • A large punch-bowl of the eighteenth century, usually of silver and with a movable rim, and decorated with flutings and a scalloped edge. It was also used for cooling and carrying wine-glasses.
  • A kind of cotton handkerchief having white spots on a colored ground, the spots being produced by a chemical which discharges the color.
This word is possibly named after Monteith (Monteigh), 'an eccentric 17th-century Scotsman who wore a cloak scalloped at the hem.'
