- New DNA Marking Method Devised
The human DNA, containing the basic information about who we are and what defines us as a species, as well as some genetic information passed on by individuals before us, was long believed to be completely photo resistant. In other words, in a twisted way, it blocked the light directed towards it with its own mass. This may be hard to understand at first, but no worries, it took geneticists several years to find out why.
- A Belt-Driven CD Player Claiming to Be the World's Quietest: CEC TL1N
1991 was the year when the Japanese company CEC first introduced their belt-driven CD player, a new and more stable concept, promising to eliminate a lot of the perturbing factors many discerning audiophiles have been detecting even in the operation of their high-end units. All sorts of vibrations, electromagnetic resonance and noises, along with other things commonly associated with the proximity of an electric motor and whose presence was not desirable, to say the least.[A...
- Mushrooms Provide Clean Fuel
The discovery was made by researchers at Oxford University analyzing a specific enzyme produced by fungi growing on rotten wood. The Laccase enzyme has an effect similar to that of platinum on electrodes composing a battery. Chemists say that their first prototype is able to supply more than 2,500 hours of life to an average mp3 player, at about 400 milliamps constant power output. Cell phone batteries are the next step, as they account for more than 200,000 tones of waste each year.
