›  Electromagnetic water cloak eliminates drag and wake
Engineers have developed a realistic proposition for creating a water cloak that moves water around an object by applying forces on dissolved ions through a carefully designed electromagnetic field.
›  Simpler way to deposit magnetic iron oxide onto gold nanorods
Researchers have found a simpler way to deposit magnetic iron oxide (magnetite) nanoparticles onto silica-coated gold nanorods, creating multifunctional nanoparticles with useful magnetic and optical properties.
›  How do you track a secretive hawk? Follow the isotopes
A study has found that the rare Henst's goshawk of Madagascar hunts lemurs in low-lying areas that are most at risk to deforestation. Researchers could use this isotope analysis to study the habitat and prey needs of other threatened species that are difficult to track.
›  Single-dose vaccine could provide faster protection in cholera epidemics
Each year there are more than three million cases of cholera worldwide. Research now shows that giving a stronger single-dose of a live oral vaccine could be an effective tool in controlling outbreaks more quickly.
›  Two holograms in one surface
Engineers have developed a way to encode more than one hologram in a single surface with no loss of resolution.
›  Turning pathogens against each other to prevent drug resistance
Limiting a much-needed resource could pit pathogens against one another and prevent the emergence of drug resistance. New research demonstrates that harnessing competition among pathogens inside a patient could extend the life of existing drugs where resistance is already present and prevent resistance to new drugs from emerging.
›  Patients' individual genomes may affect efficacy, safety of gene editing
Gene editing has begun to be tested in clinical trials, using CRISPR-Cas9 and other technologies to directly edit DNA inside people's cells, and multiple trials are recruiting or in planning. A new study raises a note of caution, finding person-to-person genetic differences that may undercut the efficacy of gene editing or, more rarely, cause potentially dangerous 'off target' effects. It suggests that gene editing may need to be adapted to each patient's genome.
›  Social media trends can predict tipping points in vaccine scares
Analyzing trends on Twitter and Google can help predict vaccine scares that can lead to disease outbreaks, according to a study from the University of Waterloo.
›  Violence a matter of scale, not quantity, researchers show
Are societies more or less violent today than they were thousands of years ago? It's a matter of scale, researchers show. In a new study, researchers present an expanded data set showing that the larger the population of a society, the smaller its war group size, proportionally, and the fewer casualties in a conflict.
›  The force is strong: Amputee controls individual prosthetic fingers
Luke Skywalker's bionic hand is a step closer to reality for amputees in this galaxy. Researchers have created an ultrasonic sensor that allows amputees to control each of their prosthetic fingers individually. It provides fine motor hand gestures that aren't possible with current commercially available devices.
›  AML study reports high response rates with combination targeted therapy
Initial findings from a multi-national open-label phase Ib study of inhibitory drug therapy for relapsed or refractory acute myeloid leukemia (AML) have demonstrated a complete response in up to 50 percent patients say researchers.
›  Artificial intelligence and supercomputers to help alleviate urban traffic problems
Researchers have developed a tool that uses artificial intelligence to recognize objects in raw traffic camera footage and characterize how those objects move and interact. This information can then be analyzed and queried by traffic engineers and officials to improve the safety and performance of the city's transportation network.
