A new study shows that fecal bacteria from sewage are living in far greater quantities in near-shore sediments of the Hudson River than in the water itself. The river’s pollution levels are generally monitored based on samples of clear water, not sediments, so the findings suggest that people stirring up the bottom while wading, swimming […]Continue Reading ...
Researchers at the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne have discovered a new way to monitor electrical activity in nerve cells – by observing the behavior of water molecules surrounding neuronal membranes.

The startup company Smartmedic and a team of researchers of Kaunas University of Technology (KTU), Lithuania developed a smart life-collar prototype which inflates once in contact with water thus keeping the head of its wearer above the surface. Buddy, the Life-Collar can be vital for parents of young children, who are still not confident in […]Continue Reading ...
Hot water treatment may help improve inflammation and blood sugar (glucose) levels in people who are unable to exercise, according to a new study. The findings are published ahead of print in the Journal of Applied Physiology. Physical stress such as exercise can cause the short-term elevation of inflammatory markers. After exercise, the level of […]Continue Reading ...
Bacteria that become resistant to antibiotics lead to an estimated 23,000 deaths and 2 million illnesses per year in the U.S. The Centers for Disease Control is launching an expansive effort to study various facets of the growing threat by funding researchers across the nation, including two prominent water experts at Virginia Tech.

An inexpensive hydrogel-based material efficiently captures moisture even from low-humidity air and then releases it on demand. A simple device that can capture its own weight in water from fresh air and then release that water when warmed by sunlight could provide a secure new source of drinking water in remote arid regions, new research […]Continue Reading ...
Since his days on the campaign trail, President Donald Trump has promised to roll back environmental regulations, boost the use of coal and pull out of the Paris climate agreement — and he’s moving toward doing all those things. He has pushed ahead with such action even as a report by the United Nations’ Intergovernmental […]Continue Reading ...
A clinical trial from the St John’s Institute of Dermatology, School of Basic & Medical Biosciences has been launched to investigate whether using water softeners can reduce the risk of eczema in babies. The trial is funded by the Biomedical Research Centre (BRC) and builds on findings from their previous research, published in 2017, showing […]Continue Reading ...
