According to a new study of satellite data, the largest concentration of the greenhouse gas methane over the USA is located in a single hot spot near the Four Corners intersection of Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico and Utah. The concentration of methane revealed from Earth orbit more than triples standard ground-based estimates.
The scientific community has made significant strides in recent years in identifying important genetic contributors to malignancy and developing therapeutic agents that target altered genes and proteins. A recent approach to treat cancer called synthetic lethality takes advantage of genetic alterations in cancer cells that make them more susceptible to certain drugs. Alan F. List, MD, president and CEO of Moffitt Cancer Center, co-authored an article on synthetic lethality featured in the Oct. 30 issue of the New England Journal of Medicine.

RĂ©publique makes console-like stealth action memorable on mobile - PC World NEW!
Sharp is developing a â€ścolor memory LCD panelâ€ť for wearables that has dramatically lower power consumption, allowing smartbands, smartwatches and other devices with small displays to be used far longer.The prototype panel, described as being in the 1-inch class size, uses 1,000 times less power than conventional LCDs in mobile devices and is slated to go into mass production in Japan next spring, a Sharp spokeswoman said.Itâ€™s able to sip tiny amounts of power because its design uses two savings approachesâ€”doing away with the energy-draining backlight and using semiconductor memory.Instead of a backlight, it makes use of ambient light and reflector layers inside pixels to illuminate whatâ€™s on the display.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here
Two coasts, 10 days: Macworldâ€™s thorough field test of Apple Pay - PC World NEW!
I love an amazingly taut and tense stealth adventure, but I would never, ever want to play a traditional, full-fledged Metal Gear Solid or Splinter Cell game on a touch screen. Can you imagine the finger gymnastics needed to simply get around tactfully amidst the constant peril? Itâ€™d be a mess.Maybe thatâ€™s why Iâ€™m so drawn to RĂ©publique ($3), which made a big splash on Kickstarter a couple years back and just landed on Android after a successful launch on iOS late last year. Yes, itâ€™s a streamlined take on the stealth-action genre, but thatâ€™s not a slam.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here

Weâ€™re taking the next big step in screen resolution.When we already have Retina-class and other high-res displays, though, it's natural to ask whether 5K delivers a difference worth the premium price.
