Sports journalists covering the Penn State sex abuse scandal posted commentary on Twitter that was inherently biased, Clemson University and University of Louisville researchers say. Their study explored how sports journalists used Twitter to develop and promote their stories during the scandal.
The aim of this company is to exploit the full potential of satellite navigation, combining it with other technologies to develop innovative products and create new applications. "Our effort is focused on developing collaborative navigation network which allows us to establish cooperation...
In the medium term, an investment of only $2500 in photovoltaic cells would suffice to provide more than enough electricity for the consumption of a four people household. This promising scenario has been made possible by the innovations accomplished by EPFL's Institute of Microengineering in Neuchatel.
As scientists from different disciplines and regions help design a world-class nuclear research facility at Michigan State University, a team of MSU researchers will conduct one of the first major studies of how teams work together. Using surveys, interviews and high-tech devices that monitor interaction, the researchers will study teamwork among the many groups of physicists, engineers and other scientists...
Even the most skilled and steady surgeons experience minute, almost imperceptible hand tremors when performing delicate tasks. Normally, these tiny motions are inconsequential, but for doctors specializing in fine-scale surgery, such as operating inside the human eye or repairing microscopic nerve fibers, freehand tremors can pose a serious risk for patients.
Suitable for use in general and ITE applications, the GT-43006 Series 40-W desktop power supplies from GlobTek can deliver 12 V at 3.3 A with no minimum load required for output regulation. The Level-V Energy Star RoHS-compliant power supply has a line regulation of ±1 percent and
For researchers, educators, R&D engineers, and others who must deal with ever-tighter instrumentation budgets, Keithley has added three high value, dual-channel SMUs to the Series 2600B line. The new Models 2604B, 2614B, and 2634B are optimized for
Innovative Integration announces the new SBC-K7. SBC-K7 is an ideal platform for embedded instrumentation that combines an Atom or i7 PC running Windows/Linux/VxWorks with a Xilinx Kintex7 FPGA plus dual, industry-compliant FMC (FPGA mezzanine card) I/O sites.
For two old TV neighbors, all that's needed for a therapeutic reunion is a ride and a cup of Joe. On an emotional season finale of Jerry Seinfeld's Web series, "Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee," Michael Richards recalls the infamous heckling incident in 2006 that he says "broke me down." The...
A Phoenix man has been accused of dressing his 16-year-old nephew in a sheet and sending him into a busy street with a fake grenade launcher, then filming the masked teenager pointing the faux weapon at passing cars. Authorities said it was all to see how fast city police would react to a mock...
Emergency workers risk their lives to keep us safe, and they’re often walking into situations essentially blind. If they run into a problem, they have only primitive ways of warning those coming in behind them. But, with the help of the researchers, the days of flying blind may be coming to a rapid end.
Understanding and evaluating art has widely been considered as a task meant for humans, until now. Computer scientists Lior Shamir and Jane Tarakhovsky of Lawrence Technological University in Michigan tackled the question "can machines understand art?" The results were very surprising.
Federal law ought to play a stronger role in regulating social networking sites by allowing users to determine what happens to their "digital afterlives," says a recently published paper by a University of Illinois expert in intellectual property law. Allowing social networking sites to set their own policies regarding the content associated with the accounts of deceased users does
An artificially intelligent virtual gamer created by computer scientists at The University of Texas at Austin has won the BotPrize by convincing a panel of judges that it was more human-like than half the humans it competed against. The competition was sponsored by 2K Games and was set inside the virtual world of "Unreal Tournament 2004,"
