Hexbyte Glen Cove Women’s voices in the media still outnumbered by those of men: study

Credit: CC0 Public Domain New research from Simon Fraser University shows that women's voices continue to be underrepresented in the media, despite having prominent female leaders across Canada and internationally. Researchers in SFU's Discourse Processing Lab found that men outnumber women quoted in Canadian news media about three to one. The findings from the...

Hexbyte Glen Cove Polymer-derived carbon as metal-free, ‘green’ alternative to catalysts and nanocarbons

Credit: CC0 Public Domain Catalysts are key materials in modern society, enabling selective conversion of raw materials into valuable products while reducing waste and saving energy. In case of industrially relevant oxidative dehydrogenation reactions, most known catalyst systems are based on transition metals such as iron, vanadium, molybdenum or silver. Due to intrinsic drawbacks...

Hexbyte Glen Cove Machine-learning model helps determine protein structures

Credit: Unsplash/CC0 Public Domain Cryo-electron microscopy (cryo-EM) allows scientists to produce high-resolution, three-dimensional images of tiny molecules such as proteins. This technique works best for imaging proteins that exist in only one conformation, but MIT researchers have now developed a machine-learning algorithm that helps them identify multiple possible structures that a protein can take....

Hexbyte Glen Cove Astronomers spot bizarre, never-before-seen activity from one of the strongest magnets in the universe

Artist’s impression of the active magnetar Swift J1818.0-1607. Credit: Carl Knox, OzGrav. Astronomers from the ARC Centre of Excellence for Gravitational Wave Discovery (OzGrav) and CSIRO have just observed bizarre, never-seen-before behavior from a radio-loud magnetar—a rare type of neutron star and one of the strongest magnets in the universe. Their new findings, published...
