Mesoamericans Drank Fermented Agave Sap

October 14, 2014 7:00 am | by PNAS | News | Comments

Although in modern societies fermented beverages are associated with socializing, celebration and ritual, in ancient times they were also important sources of essential nutrients and potable water. In Mesoamerica, pulque— an alcoholic beverage produced from the fermented sap of several species of maguey plants— is hypothesized to have been used as a dietary supplement.

Multilayer-coated Mirrors Set New Energy Record

September 18, 2014 7:00 am | by Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory | News | Comments

Multilayer-coated mirrors, if used as focusing optics in the soft gamma-ray photon energy range, can enable and advance a range of scientific and technological applications. Researchers have demonstrated that very short-period multilayer coatings deposited on super-polished substrates operate efficiently as reflective optics above 0.6 MeV, nearly a factor of two higher than the previous record at 384 keV, set last year by this same group.

Meet Graphene's Cousin: Germanene

September 18, 2014 7:00 am | by Institute of Physics | News | Comments

Dubbed a “cousin of graphene,” germanene— which is made up of just a single layer of germanium atoms— is expected to exhibit impressive electrical and optical properties and could be widely integrated across the electronics industry in the future.

Meal Time May Impact TB Treatment

September 18, 2014 7:00 am | by European Lung Foundation | News | Comments

The timing of food intake in the early phase of TB treatment could have a negative impact on the effectiveness of TB treatment. A new study suggests that eating food just before taking a TB drug could reduce the effectiveness of the medicine.
