LeeAbstractWe evaluated the effect of fabrication methods such as arc melting, suction casting, spark plasma sintering and melt spinning on the magnetocaloric properties, i.e., magnetization, magnetic entropy change, and relative cooling power, of Co-based Heusler-type alloys having a high Curie temperature (>700 K). We also investigated entropy changes caused by phase transformation. Magnetic entropy change in the amorphous ribbon synthesized by melt spinning is much larger t...

Mysterious Paralyzing Illness Found Among Kids in 22 States
  NEW YORK (AP) — U.S. health officials on Tuesday reported a jump in cases of a rare paralyzing illness in children, and said it seems to be following an every-other-year pattern. At least 62 cases have been confirmed in 22 states this year, and at least 65 additional illnesses in those states are being investigated, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Similar waves of the same illness occurred in 2014 and 2016. CDC officials say they haven't found the cause. Some possible suspects, such as polio and West Nile virus, have been ruled out. Another kind of virus is suspected, but i...

Effect of milling and long-term storage on volatiles of black rice (Oryza sativa L.) determined by headspace solid-phase microextraction with gas chromatography–mass spectrometry
In this study, octanal increased at a high rate during early storage compared with hexanal, a traditional oxidation marker; thus, octanal may be an early oxidation marker in black rice. The results suggested that high temperature is not appropriate for storage of unmilled or milled black rice because it promotes lipid oxidation, producing volatile compounds. At 25 °C, black rice stored for short times such as 3 months should be milled, whereas for 6 months, black rice should be stored without milling.

Helmholtz ’s Critique of Goethe’s Theory of Color More than Meets the Eye
After arriving at the University of K önigsberg in 1849, Hermann von Helmholtz started investigating the trichromatic hypothesis of color perception proposed by Thomas Young. Four years later in 1853 he was invited to lecture to the German Society and used the opportunity to criticize harshly Johann Goethe’s Theory of Color published in 1810. Offending a revered member of German society was an odd method of introducing the study of color to a learned audience. but the content and tone of the lecture suggested Helmholtz was more concerned about dispelling misconceptions of experimental science than in imparting knowledge...

Discovery Could Lead To Drug Treatment For Nearsightedness
BOSTON (CBS) — Nearsightedness is expected to affect half of the world’s population by the year 2050, but researchers at Columbia University have made a discovery that could lead to the development of drugs to treat the condition. Nearsightedness is the inability to see far away.  It occurs when the eye grows too long so when you’re looking at an object, instead of the image coming into focus on the retina, it lands in front of the retina making it appear blurry. It is the most common cause of vision impairment in the world. Studying marmosets, researchers identified the molecular pathways involved in...
