Biochemists link synthetic compound to hunger-hormone production

New research suggests that a man-made cousin of a small molecule found in olive oil can disrupt the hunger-signaling pathway. Researchers identified this promising new target by screening a library of roughly 1,600 small molecules for potential disruptors. Because the small molecule could influence how the body senses and utilizes energy, it has the potential to be developed into a treatment for conditions that affect energy balance, like diabetes and obesity....


DNA links male, female butterfly thought to be distinct species

Researchers recently discovered what was thought to be a distinct species of butterfly is actually the female of a species known to science for more than a century....


Seeing the light: Researchers seek to improve solar cell technology using new materials and nanowires

Researchers at Rochester Institute of Technology are expanding solar cell technology using nanowires to capture more of the suns energy and transform it into usable electricity. Comparable to ultra-thin blades of grass, nanowires added to todays conventional materials are capable of capturing more light and can be cost-effective solutions for adopting solar energy into the broader consumer market....


Ultracold molecules hold promise for quantum computing

Researchers have taken an important step toward the long-sought goal of a quantum computer, which in theory should be capable of vastly faster computations than conventional computers, for certain kinds of problems. The new work shows that collections of ultracold molecules can retain the information stored in them, for hundreds of times longer than researchers have previously achieved in these materials....


 - Contemporary Financial Intermediation - Academic sku

Contemporary Financial Intermediation - by Academic Press

Item description: This Academic Business, Management Science and Accounting product is by Academic Press - Stuart Greenbaum and Anjan Thakor bring a unique analytical approach to the subject of banks and banking in this completely revised and updated new edition. They expand the scope of the typical bank management course by addressing all types of deposit-type financial institutions and by explaining the why of intermediation rather than simply describing institutions, regulations, and market phenomena.This analytic approach strikes at the heart of financial intermediation by explaining why financial intermediaries exist and what they do. Specific regulations, economies, and policies will change, but the underlying philosophical foundations remain the same. This approach enables students to understand the foundational principles and to apply them to whatever context they encounter as professionals. It is a completely updated edition of a classic banking text. Online instructors manual and ppt slides are available to instructors on the publisher's website. The authors are recognized experts in banking.... Learn More

  Handbook of Fatigue Crack Propagation in Metallic Structures
The purpose of this Handbook is to provide a review of the knowledge and experiences in the field of fatigue fracture mechanics. It is well-known that engineering structures can fail due to cyclic loading. For instance, a cyclically time-varying loading reduces the structure strength and can provoke a fatigue failure consisting of three stages: (a) crack initiation (b) crack propagation and (c) catastrophic failure. Since last century many scientists have tried to understand the reasons for the ...See The Price
