WAVES University is pioneering in their efforts to combat the decline of workplace readiness and common sense exhibited in today´s youth by creating a unique online interactive employee training and certification program. Santa Cruz, Ca (PRWEB) January 16, 2013 If information is power, like they used to say, then today´s teens and young adults should be the most powerful generation ever. Information is everywhere. It never sleeps. No more waiting for the nightly news to get your...

Shedding Light On Anderson Theory
2012-12-20 15:37:51

University of Zurich Waves do not spread in a disordered medium if there is less than one wavelength between two defects. Physicists from the universities of Zurich and Constance have now proved Nobel Prize winner Philip W. Anderson´s theory directly for the first time using the diffusion of light in a cloudy medium. Light cannot spread in a straight line in a cloudy medium like milk because the many droplets of fat divert the light as defects. If the disorder — the...

Scientists Explain The Sound In Saturn’s Rings

Alan McStravick for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online The theoretical prediction of the existence of linear and nonlinear dust acoustic waves in dusty plasmas was first postulated more than two decades ago by Professor Padma Kant Shukla. Since that early prediction, these acoustic waves have been observed in several laboratory experiments. With that discovery, Professor Shukla´s discovery has transformed the field of plasma physics, even opening up a new interdisciplinary...

Wave Interactions May Explain Why Some Tsunamis Are So Powerful

Lawrence LeBlond for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Ocean waves are a source of calming for meditation, and a source of enjoyment for thrill-seeking surfers. These waves are also a source of wonder for researchers trying to explain the power of the tsunami. Two applied mathematicians from University of Colorado Boulder have taken a closer look at these waves, discovering X- and Y-shaped ocean waves that could help explain why some tsunamis become as powerful as they do....

Sound artist Jodina Meehan announces the launch of a new iPhone app that uses the science of cymatics to make sound visible to the naked eye. Brattleboro, VT (PRWEB) June 19, 2012 Jodina Meehan, an artist who uses sound waves to make steel paintings, is launching a new iPhone app to allow users to see the shape of sound on their phone or iPhone or iPad. She is using Kickstarter to launch the app this June. The app will the use the new science of cymatics (visible sound) to allow users to...

Invisibility, once the subject of magic or legend, is slowly becoming reality. Over the past five years mathematicians and other scientists have been working on devices that enable invisibility cloaks — perhaps not yet concealing Harry Potter, but at least shielding small objects from detection by microwaves or sound waves. A University of Washington mathematician is part of an international team working to understand invisibility and extend its possible applications. The group has...

Doppler Effect -- The Doppler effect is the apparent change in frequency or wavelength of a wave that is perceived by an observer moving relative to the source of the waves. For waves, such as sound waves, that propagate in a wave medium, the velocity of the observer and the source are reckoned relative to the medium in which the waves are transmitted. The total Doppler effect may therefore result from both motion of the source and motion of the observer. Each of these effects is analyzed...
