2011-02-21
Starting this month, members of Congress will be looking closely at U.S. spending as they work with the White House to build the 2012 budget. One area that has come under increased scrutiny is U.S. spending on global health programs. Several groups last week announced a petition (http://www.supportglobalhealth.org/) seeking support for global health spending through the United States Global Health Initiative. Many fear that even flat spending in this area could jeopardize important programs in vaccine research and treatment. News like this highlights the important role ...

Wage Garnishment Released by the Expert Team at Blue Tax

2011-02-21
A wage garnishment is one of the most intimidating powers that the IRS can use in an effort to retrieve unpaid taxes from a taxpayer. Intimidating because it is immediately effective in taking money from the taxpayer and placing it in the hands of the IRS, whether it's convenient or not for the taxpayer and regardless of whether that person can afford it. Wage garnishments by the IRS and State are common when a taxpayer has not filed taxes in many years. Take John M. (Diamondbar, CA) who came to Blue Tax panicked when the Franchise Tax Board placed a bi-weekly wage ...

Ben-Gurion U. research leads to improved calcium supplement derived from crustacean shells

Ben-Gurion U. research leads to improved calcium supplement derived from crustacean shells
2011-02-20
BEER-SHEVA, ISRAEL, February, 18 2011– Ben-Gurion University of the Negev (BGU) researchers have developed a unique technology that stabilizes an otherwise unstable form of calcium carbonate. This mineral form provides significantly higher biological absorption and retention rates than other sources presently used as dietary calcium supplements. Calcium is considered to be one of the most important minerals in the human body for maintaining bone mass and coronary health. Insufficient dietary calcium intake can induce osteoporosis and poor blood-clotting. "Since most ...

UC Santa Cruz scientist uses storm-chasing weather radar to track bat populations

2011-02-20
SANTA CRUZ, CA. -- Storm chasers have become bat watchers. A scientist at the University of California, Santa Cruz, working with meteorologists at the University of Oklahoma, is using mobile storm-chasing radars to follow swarms of bats as they emerge from their caves each night to forage on insects. The radar images of bats appear as distinct "blooms" of radar reflectivity and give scientists clues to their behavior, said Winifred F. Frick, a post doctoral researcher in environmental studies at UC Santa Cruz. Frick, a bat expert, is working with professor Thomas ...

Doing good with operations research

2011-02-20
For Northwestern University's Karen Smilowitz, the term "industrial engineering" is a bit of a misnomer. It evokes the image of the engineer in a factory with a stopwatch in hand, making sure production is as efficient as possible. Surely some industrial engineers still do that. But these days, industrial engineering has grown beyond the factory and into the world of business. Others have taken it one step further -- into nonprofits. Smilowitz has co-organized a symposium, "Doing Good with Good OR: Applying Operations Research for Societal Impact," to highlight such ...

Biodiversity in danger: Which areas should be protected?

2011-02-20
Biodiversity loss is a growing concern. Protected areas are a instrument to counteract this trend. The UN's Convention on Biological Diversity conference of the parties in Nagoya (October 2010) set stringent new targets to be reached by 2020. At least 17% of terrestrial and inland water and 10% of coastal and marine areas have to be protected. But are protected areas really protected? Are they in the right place? Where should new protected areas be located? The European Commission's Joint Research Centre (JRC), in collaboration with other partners, is helping decision-makers ...

High-quality measurements are the basis for reliable safety assessments, process improvement, quality control and the development of new nanotechnology applications. Until now, however, no certified benchmarks incorporating industrial nanoparticles were available. Some synthetic materials were available, but they were not fully ...

Physicists build bigger 'bottles' of antimatter to unlock nature's secrets

Physicists build bigger bottles of antimatter to unlock natures secrets
2011-02-20
Once regarded as the stuff of science fiction, antimatter—the mirror image of the ordinary matter in our observable universe—is now the focus of laboratory studies around the world. While physicists routinely produce antimatter with radioisotopes and particle colliders, cooling these antiparticles and containing them for any length of time is another story. Once antimatter comes into contact with ordinary matter it "annihilates"—or disappears in a flash of gamma radiation. Clifford Surko, a professor of physics at UC San Diego who is constructing what he hopes will ...

'Telecoupling' explains why it's a small (and fast) world, after all

2011-02-20
WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Understanding and managing how humans and nature sustainably coexist is now so sweeping and lightning fast that it's spawned a concept to be unveiled at a major scientific conference today. Meet "telecoupling." Joining its popular cousins telecommuting and television, telecoupling is the way Jack Liu, director of the Human-Nature Lab/Center for Systems Integration and Sustainability at Michigan State University, is describing how distance is shrinking and connections are strengthening between nature and humans. The "Telecoupling of Human and Natural ...

Juggling languages can build better brains

2011-02-20
Once likened to a confusing tower of Babel, speaking more than one language can actually bolster brain function by serving as a mental gymnasium, according to researchers. Recent research indicates that bilingual speakers can outperform monolinguals--people who speak only one language--in certain mental abilities, such as editing out irrelevant information and focusing on important information, said Judith Kroll, Distinguished Professor of Psychology, Penn State. These skills make bilinguals better at prioritizing tasks and working on multiple projects at one time. "We ...
