The role of multiple global change factors in driving soil functions and microbial biodiversity
Soils underpin terrestrial ecosystem functions, but they face numerous anthropogenic pressures. Despite their crucial ecological role, we know little about how soils react to more than two environmental factors at a time. Here, we show experimentally that increasing the number of simultaneous global change factors (up to 10) caused increasing directional changes in soil properties, soil processes, and microbial communities, though there was greater uncertainty in predicting the magnitude of change. Our study provides a blueprint for addressing multifactor change with an efficient, broadly applicable experimental design for...

New partnership helps small businesses connect their employees to addiction services
Joe Tunney said his roofing contracting company used to observe a "zero tolerance" substance and drug use policy. That meant if an employee was suspected of having a substance problem, they would have to submit to a drug test. And if the test came back positive, the employee would be terminated. That policy has changed, since Tunney learned that two employees who had been terminated had ultimately succumbed to their addictions, and passed away. Tunney is president of American Design and Build…

Primary care networks: a pre-mortem to identify potential risks
This working paper presents six risks that could lead to the failure of primary care networks (PCNs): failure could be inherent in the policy design; PCNs may not be able to create effective organisations; PCNs could have a lack of focus; PCNs could experience failures of leadership and followership; PCNs could become overwhelmed by external pressure; and failure could be unfairly identified too early.

At MD&M Minneapolis 2019, Brian Mullins, director of design and development at Kablooe Design, used the original Heinz Ketchup bottle as an example of why it's important to invest in the design of a product. "This bottle you see here ... it's really good at holding ketchup, but what they didn't really think about was how to get the ketchup out of the bottle," Mullins said. "There's a process involved. First you have turn the bottle upside down, then you might have to hold it at abo...

New Battery Can Be Bent, Stretched, and Twisted
As researchers eye flexible form factors for mobile and electronic devices of the future, it makes sense that engineers also are working to invent batteries and other components that also can stretch to accommodate these designs. To that end, a team of researchers in Switzerland has developed a battery that can be bent, stretched, and twisted, making it well-suited for these future devices, said Markus Niederberger, professor for multifunctional materials at ETH Zurich, where the research was conducted. A prototype of a flexible battery developed by researchers at ETH Zurich that can potentially be used for flexible elect...
