When gun shows are held in Nevada, gun-related deaths and injuries spike across the state line in California for at least the next two weeks. A new study examined gun deaths and injuries in California before and after gun shows in California and Nevada, and their results show a nearly 70 percent increase in deaths and injuries from firearms in California communities within convenient driving distance of Nevada gun shows.

Taming 'wild' electrons in graphene

Added: 23.10.2017 16:23 | 0 views | 0 comments


Graphene -- a one-atom-thick layer of carbon -- is a better conductor than copper and is very promising for electronic devices, but with one catch: Electrons that move through it can't be stopped. Until now, that is. Scientists have learned how to tame the unruly electrons in graphene, paving the way for the ultra-fast transport of electrons with low loss of energy in novel systems.

Biosimilar drugs have been touted as one strategy to help curb the runaway costs of biologics that have advanced the treatment of illness such as rheumatoid arthritis and many cancers. A new study finds biosimilars could cut health care spending in the United States by $54 billion over the next decade. The savings are about 20 percent larger than a similar, widely cited analysis done three years ago by the same researchers.

Few scientists regard the 1997 movie Volcano, in which flaming magma suddenly spews from the La Brea tar pits and incinerates much of Los Angeles, as a means to foster scientific literacy. After all, Southern California has no magma to spew. But one geophysicist sees it differently.

How the brain learns to fear: New understanding

Added: 23.10.2017 16:23 | 0 views | 0 comments

#zrodlo

What happens in the brain when we learn that fire is very hot and can hurt us? It's the kind of learning that results from the association of a sensory stimulus and the perception of threat. New research in mice suggests that the accepted understanding of that critical operation is incorrect in important respects.
