California Desperately In Need Of Early Warning System for Earthquakes

California Desperately In Need Of Early Warning System for Earthquakes

The members of the US Congress said California presently is under high risk to be hit by an earthquake. This is the time when it feels need of having a system that could guide people to reach safer place, and Californians presently are in high need of any such system to help them save themselves from mega earthquake.

Presently, a prototype system has been developed by the researchers at the California Institute of technology (Caltech) and the congress members are asking president Obama to fund the project.

Immediate fossil fuels elimination is a way to achieve Paris global warming targets, scientists say

Immediate fossil fuels elimination is a way to achieve Paris global warming targets, scientists say

Scientists said that if governments are serious regarding the global warming targets adopted by them in Paris, then there are two options. One is immediate elimination of fossil fuels and second is to look for ways to undo their harm on the climate system in the coming time.

The first one is politically impossible as the world still engages in using coal, oil and natural gas, leaving the option of a significant atmosphere cleanup later this century.

Patients at ‘high-risk’ for heart attack or stroke should take BP-lowering medications

Do not bother about blood pressure level, if you are at a high risk for a heart attack or stroke then start taking blood pressure-lowering medications, suggests a new research paper published in The Lancet. The newest and latest call for a new treatment regimen is based on the assessment of 123 studies carried out between 1966 and 2015 in which more than 600,000 people were involved.

Graphic Images Worked Well in Reducing Smokers Count

Graphic images and photos of damage caused by tobacco use work much better in helping smokers quit their habit. A new study by the researchers from Ohio State University shows how images on cigarette packaging help smokers consider quitting much better than words alone. Ellen Peters, a professor of psychology, said graphic images act as motivation for smokers to quit smoking. Ellen added that policies requiring such labels have the potential to reduce the number of smokers in America.

Researchers infuse magnesium with ceramic nanoparticles to Develop Super Strong Metal

Researchers infused magnesium with ceramic silicon carbide nanoparticles to Develop Strong and Light-Weight Metal

Researchers have created a new metal by infusing magnesium with ceramic silicon carbide nanoparticles. The infusion resulted in the formation of a high-strength super metal which is extremely light in weight. The metal was developed in the labs of Henry Samueli School of Engineering and Applied Sciences of the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA). The researchers were able to create this metal by using an innovative way to disperse and stabilize nanoparticles in molten metal.

Newly-discovered species of shark with jet black skin and faint glow is a master of stealth

A newly-discovered shark species with jet black skin and a faint glow is a stealth master. The shark has rightly given the common name ‘Ninja Lanternshark’. It belongs to the Pacific Ocean, living off the coast of Central America in deep waters from 2,742 feet to 4,734 feet, or 836 to 1443 meters.

A team of scientists have detailed the new found shark in a study carried by the Journal of the Ocean Science Foundation. One of the scientists in the team said that the animal owes its different name to Vicky Vásquez’s young cousins.

Live Birth through IVF could succeed till Nine Cycles

Live Birth through IVF could succeed till Nine Cycles

As per a new report published in Wednesday’s edition of the Journal of the American Medical Assn., women could keep increasing their chances of having live birth through in vitro fertilization (IVF) by up to nine cycles. In most of the cases, women abandon IVF treatment after three or four unsuccessful attempts. But, after analyzing more than 250,000 in vitro fertilization attempts by more than 150,000 women over nearly a decade, researchers found that the odds of success can continue to rise through as many as nine cycles.
