Doug A. Bowman, a professor of computer science and the director of the Center for Human-Computer Interaction at Virginia Tech, has reportedly joined the ranks of Apple in an unspecified role.
A creature called the palm civet helps produce kopi luwak, an expensive type of coffee in a process that begins when the cat-like animal eats coffee cherries that ferment in its gut.
Researchers from the Univ. of Cambridge believe the roughly 10,000-year-old massacre at Nataruk—located 30 km from Kenya’s Lake Turkana—may be the earliest scientifically-dated evidence of human conflict.
An international collaboration has woven the first three-dimensional covalent organic frameworks (COFs) from helical organic threads. The woven COFs display significant advantages in structural flexibility, resiliency and reversibility over previous COFs - materials that are highly prized for their potential to capture and store carbon dioxide then convert it into valuable chemical products.
Scientists, working with National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and university colleagues, have found that half of the global ocean heat content increase since 1865 has occurred over the past two decades.
New research suggests that a habit leaves a lasting mark on specific circuits in the brain, priming us to feed our cravings.
In a discovery that may lead to ways to prevent frost on airplane parts, condenser coils, and even windshields, a team of researchers has used chemical micropatterns to control the growth of frost caused by condensation.
Researchers have created the first computational model that simulates the light-harvesting activity of the thousands of antenna proteins that would be interacting in the chloroplast of an actual leaf. The results from this model point the way to improving the yields of food and fuel crops, and developing artificial photosynthesis technologies for next generation solar energy systems.
The company on Thursday announced that it's formed a brand called "Maven" that will run its car-sharing ventures, including a new one that will begin competing with ZipCar next month in Ann Arbor, Michigan, and spread to other metro areas later this year.
There are concerns that this pathogen could become the next Ebola epidemic.
The brew contains 30 to 40 percent alcohol, but won’t prevent people from overindulging because it doesn’t cause typical hangover symptoms.
Much attention at the 2016 World Economic Forum has been focused on the Fourth Industrial Revolution. With the proliferation of advanced robotics, the journalism field may face some drastic changes.
A lithium-ion battery that self heats if the temperature is below 32 degrees Fahrenheit has multiple applications, but may have the most impact on relieving winter "range anxiety" for electric vehicle owners, according to a team of researchers.
After six years of painstaking effort, a group of University of Wisconsin-Madison materials scientists believe their breakthrough in growing tiny sheets of zinc oxide could have huge implications for the future of nanomaterial manufacturing—and in turn, on a host of electronic and biomedical devices.
Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory researchers have created a library of nanoporous gold structures on a single chip that has direct applications for high-capacity lithium ion batteries as well as neural interfaces.
