Improving insulation materials, down to wetting crossed fibers
Scientists model the manner in which a liquid wets fibers, gaining useful insights for improving glass wool properties. Sandcastles are a prime example of how adding a small amount of liquid to a granular material changes its characteristics. But understanding the effect of a liquid wetting randomly oriented fibers in a fibrous medium remains a mystery. (Source: ScienceDaily Headlines)

Why I Refuse to Talk To My Children About 'Fat' and 'Thin'
Once upon a time, I was epically thin. Think runway model thin. I wore size zero jeans held up by a belt. Initially, my thinness evoked compliments about how great I looked. But as the weight melted off my five-foot, seven-inch frame, the compliments gave way to glances of pity and insults. One afternoon, I was at my local gym after a day of college classes, excited to lift weights and let the stress of grad school give way to strength. A man walked by me, gave me a quick up-and-down glance, and said, "Eat a hamburger." I had more than one friend follow me into the bathroom between classes, later confessing that...

Self-cleaning surfaces: The importance of a single groove
An innovative algorithm exposes the energy pathways that cause super-repellent surfaces to stop working. 'Superhydrophobic' surfaces, such as anti-icing or self-cleaning windows, are remarkably effective at repelling water molecules. However, they may suddenly -- and dramatically -- lose their superhydrophobic features. Researchers have now identified a cause for the widespread 'wetting transition' by pinpointing how infiltration of a single microscopic groove can cause such an event.

Forever clean? Metal–organic 'micromushrooms' repel all
A clever chemical transformation yields surface-bound microstructures that efficiently drive away oil- and water-based contaminants. Natural surfaces that repel water, such as lotus leaves or butterfly wings, often have a rough, microscale texture that traps air beneath the liquid droplet. By mimicking these biological structures, researchers have developed 'superhydrophobic' coatings that are highly resistant to wetting. One trick unknown to nature, however, is the ability to repel hydrocarbon-based oils that have much lower surface tension than water and tend to spread out rather than bead up.

Conclusion This small open label trial aimed to further investigate the safety and possible effectiveness of giving repeated ketamine infusions over a three week period to a small group of people with depression that had not responded to previous treatments. Almost a third responded to treatment. The treatment also had no detrimental effect on participants in terms of memory, though there were some side effects and seven people withdrew from the study. Two because of side effects during the infusion; and five because they were getting no benefit and were becoming more anxious.  This was an early stage study and not a...

When Should a Child Start Toilet Training?
Discussion Toilet training is a normal developmental process but has very little research. In 1962 Dr. Barry Brazleton published the first standardized method using a “child readiness” approach that was unregimented and child-focused. The child had to be physiological and psychologically ready and the parent had to be psychologically ready to proceed with toilet training. Studies beginning at 18 months of age using this approach had a mean daytime continence achieved by 28 months. In 1973, Azrin and Foxx described a method that was structured and parent-focused. Again both the child had to be physically and psy...
