Strong New Earthquake Shakes Buildings in Mexico City
A strong new earthquake shook Mexico on Saturday, causing new alarm in a country reeling from two still-more-powerful quakes this month that have killed nearly 400 people. The U.S. Geological Survey says the new temblor was centered about 12 miles (19 kilometers) southeast of Matias Romero in the state of Oaxaca, which was the region most battered by a magnitude 8.1 quake on Sept. 7. It swayed buildings and set off a seismic alarm in the capital, prompting civil defense officials to temporarily suspend rescue operations in the rubble of buildings downed by Thursday’s magnitude 7.1 quake in central Mexico. That quake...

The Search for Mexico ’s Earthquake Survivors Enters a Fourth Day, With Some Successes
(MEXICO CITY) —Survivors are still being pulled from rubble in Mexico City as rescue operations stretch into a fourth day Friday, spurring hope among desperate relatives gathered at the sites of buildings collapsed by a magnitude 7.1 earthquake. Mexico’s federal police said several people were lifted out of the debris of two buildings Thursday. Rescuers removed or broke through slabs until they found cracks that allowed workers to wiggle through to reach the victims, then lift them to safety. The city government said 60 people in all had been rescued since the quake hit at midday Tuesday. Still, with the hours...

Converting 30 Million Tons of Asbestos into Usable Chemicals
New details have emerged of a plan to remove 30 million tons of asbestos waste from the inactive 1,550-acre Eden-Lowell mine in Vermont. Solution: Move it to a proposed processing plant in Groveton, New Hampshire. The proposal is part of long-term cleanup plan that began in 2013, when officials with the Vermont Asbestos Group reached a settlement with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and Vermont state officials. Under the agreement, Vermont Asbestos Group (VAG) will pay past and future cleanup costs and maintain the site, including protecting the public from potential environmental asbestos exposure. The ...

7.1-Magnitude Earthquake Shakes Mexico City
(MEXICO CITY) — A powerful earthquake jolted central Mexico on Tuesday, cracking building facades and scattering rubble on streets in the capital on the anniversary of a devastating 1985 quake. The quake caused buildings to sway sickeningly in Mexico City and sent panicked office workers streaming into the streets, but the full extent of the damage was not yet clear. The U.S. Geological Survey said the quake had a magnitude of 7.1 and was centered near the Puebla state town of Raboso, about 76 miles (123 kilometers) southeast of Mexico City. Puebla Gov. Tony Galil tweeted that there had been damaged buildings in the ...

A cargo-sorting DNA robot
Two critical challenges in the design and synthesis of molecular robots are modularity and algorithm simplicity. We demonstrate three modular building blocks for a DNA robot that performs cargo sorting at the molecular level. A simple algorithm encoding recognition between cargos and their destinations allows for a simple robot design: a single-stranded DNA with one leg and two foot domains for walking, and one arm and one hand domain for picking up and dropping off cargos. The robot explores a two-dimensional testing ground on the surface of DNA origami, picks up multiple cargos of two types that are initially at unordere...

High-deductible health plans – which shift initial medical costs to patients, but have lower monthly premiums – are becoming popular, resulting in patients pushing back non-emergency surgeries.

Opioid Use Common Even After Minor Surgery
This study shows that new chronic opioid use after surgery may be one of the most common complications after surgery,” said lead study author Dr. Chad Brummett of the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor. “Given that the rates of new chronic use did not differ between major and minor surgery, this suggests that patients continue to use their opioids for reasons other than the pain from the surgery,” Brummett added by email.

Public pay the price of job cuts
It might not make front page news, but the public pay the price when support staff are axed. More than half a million jobs have been lost in local government since 2010.

The vital role of admin workers is seriously undervalued. Frontline workers face mounting pressure as they struggle with ever-expanding workloads.
