Adding calcium to graphene creates an extremely-promising superconductor, but where does the calcium go? In a new study, a Monash-led team has for the first time confirmed what actually happens to those calcium atoms. Surprising everyone, the calcium goes underneath both the upper graphene sheet and a lower ‘buffer’ sheet, […]

Researchers have identified the protein GLT-1 as the neurotransmitter glutamate transporter in the brain that is related to cortical spreading depression, a pathological condition that underlies migraines. The researchers found that mice lacking GLT-1, but not other glutamate receptors, were more susceptible to cortical spreading depression than were controls. GLT-1 […]

Ecologists examining plastic pollution entering oceans, rivers and lakes around the world annually, outline potential impacts of various mitigation strategies over the coming decade. The researchers estimate the scale of human response needed to reduce future emissions and manage what’s already floating around out there and recommend a fundamental shift […]

The gang responsible for the Maze ransomware family conducted an attack in which they distributed their malware payload inside of a virtual machine (VM). Sophos’ Managed Threat Response (MTR) observed the technique in action while investigating an attack that occurred back in July 2020. In that incident, the attackers packaged […]

US Indicts Two Over Cyber-Intrusion CampaignThe US has indicted two Iranians in connection with the theft of hundreds of terabytes of sensitive data from computers in America, Europe, and the Middle East.  Hooman Heidarian, aged 30, and Mehdi Farhadi, 34, were allegedly involved in a slew of coordinated hacks perpetrated to make […]

Fatality After Hospital Hacked A woman in need of urgent medical treatment has died after a hospital under cyber-attack was unable to admit her.  Attackers struck the Düsseldorf University Clinic (DUC) last Thursday, causing IT systems at the major hospital to fail. Because of the attack, a woman seeking emergency […]

Stalkerware Banned from Google Play StoreGoogle has told app developers to remove from its Play Store stalkerware capable of operating behind the scenes without the user’s consent. The tech giant yesterday issued an update to its Developer Program Policy requiring all apps that track users and send their data to another device […]

Preserving terrestrial biodiversity requires more ambitious land-conservation targets to be established and met. At the same time, ‘bending the curve’ on biodiversity loss needs more efficient food production, and healthier and less wasteful consumption and trade. If undertaken with ‘unprecedented ambition and coordination,’ these efforts provide an opportunity to reverse […]

Over 99% of terrestrial ice is bound up in the ice sheets covering Antarctic and Greenland. Even partial melting of this ice due to climate change will significantly contribute to sea level rise. But how much exactly? For the first time ever, glaciologists, oceanographers, and climatologists from 13 countries have […]

Pity the glycan. A lab has created these very tools by commandeering simple, single-celled microorganisms – namely E. coli bacteria – and engineering them to explore the complex process of glycosylation and the functional role that protein-linked glycans play in health and disease.

A new study quantified the amount of Saharan dust reaching the Amazon to better understand how dust could impact soil fertility in the region. Intense tropical weathering and local biomass burning have both contributed to nutrient-poor soil in the Amazon Basin.

A new study finds a trigger for the Little Ice Age that cooled Europe from the 1300s through mid-1800s, and supports surprising model results suggesting that under the right conditions sudden climate changes can occur spontaneously, without external forcing.

Researchers have developed an automated 3D printing method that can produce multicolor 3D microstructures using different materials. The new method could be used to make a variety of optical components including optical sensors and light-driven actuators as well as multimaterial structures for applications such as soft robotics and medical applications.

Researchers have developed the world’s smallest ultrasound detector. It is based on miniaturized photonic circuits on top of a silicon chip. With a size 100 times smaller than an average human hair, the new detector can visualize features that are much smaller than previously possible, leading to what is known […]

The amount of synthetic microfiber we shed into our waterways has been of great concern over the last few years, and for good reason: Every laundry cycle releases in its wastewater tens of thousands of tiny, near-invisible plastic fibers whose persistence and accumulation can affect aquatic habitats and food systems, […]

A medical robotic hand could allow doctors to more accurately diagnose and treat people from halfway around the world, but currently available technologies aren’t good enough to match the in-person experience. Now researchers have reported that they have designed and produced a smart electronic skin and a medical robotic hand […]
