Picene Molecule to be used in Small-scale Electronics

Picene Molecule to be used in Small-scale Electronics

Molecular electronics, a study of molecular building blocks for the construction of electronic components, could take the explanation of portables to the next level to enable the fabrication of tiny circuit from molecular components. Individual molecules in these highly efficient devices would play the roles of wires, transistors and resistors.

Scientists Develop full-color Display Technology to Create ‘squid skin’

Scientists Develop full-color Display Technology to Create ‘squid skin’

A new full-color display technology has taken scientists a step closer to creating artificial squid skin, camouflaging metamaterials that are able to see colors and automatically mix into the background. To create bright red, blue, and green material, the technology uses aluminum nanoparticles.

The development of full-color display technology is latest in the recent discoveries by researchers trying to develop materials that mimic the optical properties of squid, octopus and cuttlefish.

Endangered Chinese Sturgeon on Brink of Extinction

Endangered Chinese Sturgeon on Brink of Extinction

Researchers have revealed that the Chinese sturgeon has not reproduced during the last one year. It was really surprising and alarming that no natural reproduction happened in the endangered sturgeons since records began 32 years ago when the Gezhouba dam was built, said Wei Qiwei, a researcher at the Chinese Academy of Fishery Sciences.

Effective Male Birth Control option likely to arrive by 2017

Effective Male Birth Control option likely to arrive by 2017

So far, birth control options exist only for women. But now, science will finally offer a contraceptive equalizer: the elusive male birth control injection called Vaselgel. The only contraceptive available for men currently is condom. However, now this new contraceptive, which is still in development, is a non-hormonal injection.

Monarch Butterfly Population dwindling because of Exposure to Chemicals, Habitat Destruction

Monarch Butterfly Population dwindling because of Exposure to Chemicals, Habitat

PPL Montour Preserve's annual Butterfly Day witnessed the presence of more than 50 people who came to learn what all measures they can take to protect monarch butterflies that are dwindling because of lack of habitat and exposure to lethal chemicals. A presentation on the decreasing monarch butterfly population was given by Deb Steransky, one of several Penn State Master Gardeners at the event.

Hundreds of New York bird species at risk due to climate change: report

Hundreds of New York bird species at risk due to climate change: report

The existence of nearly half of the birds studied in North America is at risk due to climate change, a seven-year-long study has warned.

The study, sponsored by the U. S. Fish & Wildlife Service and issued by the National Audubon Society, examined a total of 588 bird species. The extensive study found that nearly 126 species of birds are at risk of steep decline because of climate change by 2050. Another 314 species are at risk due to the same climate issue by the year of 2080, if emissions of greenhouse gases continue at the current levels.
