India says to better cuts in gas emissions growth

December 21, 2009 11:26 pm | by Reuters | News | Comments

NEW DELHI (Reuters) - India could improve upon its aims to slow the growth of greenhouse gas emissions by 2020, the environment minister said on Tuesday after returning from climate change talks in Copenhagen.

State funding fuels China's global push in wind, sun

December 21, 2009 8:27 pm | by Reuters | News | Comments

HONG KONG (Reuters) - When A-Power Energy Generation Systems secured a deal to supply turbines for a U.S. wind farm project in October, the little-known Chinese firm had an ace up its sleeve to help it clinch the deal.

What are the amounts of greenhouse gases released in your area and what are the sources?

December 21, 2009 6:24 pm | by Science Daily | News | Comments

The European Commission's Joint Research Centre (JRC) has developed a high resolution digital view of artificial greenhouse gas emissions for any 10-by-10-kilometer area in the world. Using JRC's work on emissions and Google Earth, this new tool allows the visualization of the levels of...


California senator acts to widen desert protection

December 21, 2009 4:26 pm | by Reuters | News | Comments

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - U.S. Senator Dianne Feinstein introduced a bill on Monday to set aside over one million acres of California desert for wildlife and scenic conservation, closing those areas to renewable energy companies hungry for sunny, wide-open spaces.

Polarized micro-cavity organic light-emitting devices.

December 21, 2009 2:37 pm | by Opt Express | Articles | Comments

We present the results of a study of light emissions from a polarized micro-cavity Organic Light-Emitting Device (OLED), which consisted of a flexible, anisotropic one-dimensional (1-D) photonic crystal (PC) film substrate. It is shown that luminous Electroluminescent (EL)...

Exceptionally efficient organic light emitting devices using high refractive index substrates.

December 21, 2009 2:37 pm | by Opt Express | Articles | Comments

Organic light emitting devices (OLEDs) are now used in commercial cell phones and flat screen displays, but may become even more successful in lighting applications, in which large area, high efficiency, long lifetime and low cost are essential. Due to the relatively high...

Absorption and quasiguided mode analysis of organic solar cells with photonic crystal photoactive layers.

December 21, 2009 2:37 pm | by Opt Express | Articles | Comments

We analyze optical absorption enhancements and quasiguided mode properties of organic solar cells with highly ordered nanostructured photoactive layers comprised of the bulk heterojunction blend, poly-3-hexylthiophene/[6,6]-phenyl-C61-butyric acid methyl ester (P3HT:PCBM) and a...

Thermodynamics of hydrogen adsorption in MOF-177 at low temperatures: measurements and modelling.

December 21, 2009 2:37 pm | by Nanotechnology | Articles | Comments

Hydrogen adsorption measurements and modelling for the Zn-based microporous metal-organic framework (MOF) Zn4O(1,3,5-benzenetribenzoate)2, MOF-177, were performed over the 50-77 K and 0-40 bar ranges. The maximum excess adsorption measured under these conditions varies over...


Mechanisms of synergistic skin penetration by sonophoresis and iontophoresis.

December 21, 2009 2:37 pm | by Biol Pharm Bull | Articles | Comments

The mechanism of skin penetration enhancement by ultrasound under sonophoresis (US) or by an electrical field under iontophoresis (IP) was investigated using hairless mouse skin in vitro. The seven model chemicals with different molecular weights (122-1485) were dissolved in a...

Acoustic cavitation as an enhancing mechanism of low-frequency sonophoresis for transdermal drug delivery.

December 21, 2009 2:37 pm | by Biol Pharm Bull | Articles | Comments

We investigated the role of acoustic cavitation on sonophoretic skin permeation of calcein, a model permeant, across excised hairless rat skin. Three different frequencies (41, 158, 445 kHz) and various intensities (60 to 300 mW/cm(2)) of ultrasound were applied. Cavitation...

Ribonucleoprotein dynamics connects mRNA networks with drug mechanisms

December 21, 2009 2:37 pm | Articles | Comments

Beyond transcription, gene expression is potently controlled through processes that affect pre-mRNA splicing and maturation, as well as mRNA transport, turnover, storage, and translation. These events are tightly regulated by two main classes of trans-binding factors,...

Educational intervention to improve physician reporting of adverse drug reactions (ADRs) in a primary care setting in complementary and alternative medicine.

December 21, 2009 2:37 pm | by BMC Public Health | Articles | Comments

BACKGROUND: Recent studies have shown that adverse drug reactions (ADRs) are underreported. This may be particularly true of ADRs associated with complementary and alternative medicine (CAM). Data on CAM-related ADRs, however, are sparse.Objective was to evaluate the impact of...

Report: NM greenhouse gas emissions are up

December 21, 2009 2:12 pm | by SUSAN MONTOYA BRYAN - Associated Press Writer - Associated Press | News | Comments

An inventory of New Mexico's greenhouse gas production shows residents have reduced their average emissions from gasoline use over a seven-year period, but they're consuming more energy to heat, cool and power their homes.Despite efforts by Gov. Bill Richardson's administration to address...
