Hydrophobic Water?? Hydrophobic Water??That old truism about mixing oil and water can apply to water and water, according to researchers at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory in Washington State.
Sperm? Fertility Threat Acquittal for PCBs?Polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), may damage sperm. However, despite this PCBs do not have dramatic effects on human fertility.
Synthetic resilin? Super Rubber Made in Leaps and Bounds? Australian scientists have more than scratched the surface to synthesise a polymer based on an elastic protein called resilin that endows the flea with record-breaking leaping prowess.
Hurricane Katrina? Katrina and the Waves??The floodwaters that inundated New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina were not as toxic to humans as previously thought. The findings published by researchers at Louisiana State University are good news for those who were exposed directly to the floodwaters, although say nothing of the physical devastation caused by the flood.
