New approach may help in design of future circuits
As electronic circuits become more compact, the individual, overlapping wires are crammed so close together that their signals interfere with each other, causing devices to work more slowly or to fail. But a Purduey engineer is proposing a novel design strategy to reduce the interference and predict a circuit's performance. (2000-04-23)

LSU School of Architecture improving houses, lives in Mexico for $300
An LSU professor believes it is his moral obligation to improve housing for the people of Reynosa, Mexico. So he had his architecture students build a model house with concrete walls, a tin roof and a dirt floor. And for many in the town of Reynosa, it's a dream house. (2000-03-20)

Spinal cord patients can rehabilitate online
A new computer program now being tested could help reduce some of the difficulties associated with a spinal cord injury by providing at-home rehabilitation assistance. The Rehabilitation Learning Center is a new online learning environment being established as a resource for spinal cord injury patients. (1999-12-05)

Twins
The most unlikely pair of twins since Danny DeVito and Arnold Schwarzenegger just might be the daughter cells of the tiny Caulobacter crescentus bacterium. (1999-10-31)

Old electronics are new again
Researchers at CPU Tech, a privately held California-based company, are developing a core processing architecture that will make it possible to upgrade high-end embedded electronic systems while retaining the value of time-tested application software and development tools. (1999-09-09)

Losing ground: The inaffordability of rental housing for low-income families in the 1990s
The constant stream of economic good news may not be as bright as it seems, according to a new study by the Center for Housing Research at Virginia Tech. The findings indicate that low-income families would have to spend about half of their income to rent a decent, modest apartment in Virginia. Similar data from the Department of Housing and Urban Development indicate this is a nationwide trend. (1999-06-16)

NSF grant brings 'Virtual Worlds' to life
Using a $1.3-million NSF grant, an interdisciplinary team of researchers led by Richard R. Muntz, the chairman of UCLA's computer science department, have drawn from research in fields as diverse as architecture, computer science and psychology to develop three-dimensional computer models for the (1999-05-13)

Tapping And Managing Natural Light To Reduce Building Energy Usage
Window and lighting systems in buildings are not integrated. As a result, windows that bring natural light into a building rarely reduce energy use as much as they could. A six-year research effort shows how natural lighting can reduce commercial building energy usage by between 20 and 40 percent. (1999-05-04)

University Of Hawaii Adopts Professional Architecture Doctorate
The University of Hawaii School of Architecture has become the first in the country to establish a professional doctorate degree equivalent to the MD in medicine or JD in law, requiring professional practice and international experience. (1999-02-26)

Seminar To Explore Potential Of High-Performance Computing
Reporters and the general public are welcome at a Feb. 9 seminar on the challenges and potential of using massive processing power in computing. The seminar will be held at the Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory, between Baltimore and Washington, D.C. (1999-01-27)

Flexible Membranes - Moving Through The Twilight Zone Between The Nano- And The Microworld
Flexible membranes have been studied for a long time since they represent the main structural element for the amazing architecture of the living cell, and because of its anisotropic properties. Researchers at the Max Planck Institute of Colloids and Interfaces have made the first explicit connection between the nano- and the microworld of such bilayer membranes. (1999-01-03)

Report By East St. Louis Residents Lauds University's Work In Community
City residents who were skeptical in 1990, when University of Illinois faculty and students arrived bearing ideas for revitalizing decaying, semi-abandoned neighborhoods, have handed the U. of I.'s East St. Louis Action Research Project a fairly glowing report card. (1998-10-01)

University At Buffalo Team Discovers How The Cell Nucleus Orchestrates Genetic Processes
Researchers at the University at Buffalo have demonstrated how an exquisitely organized architecture in the cell nucleus controls precisely when and where genetic processes are activated, apparently influencing gene expression and regulation. The work is reported in the Sept. 4 issue of Science. (1998-09-03)

Engineering New Enzymes
Scientists from the Max Planck Institute of Biochemistry and from Boehringer Mannheim GmbH present in PNAS (vol. 95, Issue 17, 9813-9818), a new strategy to engineer viable proteins with novel properties by assembling subdomains from different but related proteins and therefore, open new approaches in the design of novel enzymatic functions with possibly therapeutic implications. (1998-09-02)

Imaging Method Reveals Remarkable 'Architecture' Of The Brain
A new Max Planck/Weizmann Institute study featured on the cover of the December 1 Journal of Neuroscience, reveals that brain cells engaged in different tasks in the visual cortex form amazingly elegant and orderly 'mosaics'. These regular patterns apparently serve to maximize the efficiency of the brain. (1997-12-16)

Engineering Dean: Traditional Supercomputers Will Disappear In A Decade
Technical and economic factors are making the specialized architecture used by supercomputers for 40 years less and less cost effective, said John Hennessy, Stanford dean of engineering, speaking at the SC97 conference. Vector supercomputers will be replaced by machines with cluster and distributed shared memory architectures within 10 years, he predicted. (1997-11-19)

U-M Researchers Link El Nino To Midwest Weather
New climatological research by University of Michigan engineers suggests that peaks in the El Nino cycle correspond with surges in storm strength, water levels and destruction on the shores of the Great Lakes. Their findings show the region could get one of the most destructive storm seasons on record. (1997-10-24)

'Space-Capsule' Computing Concept May Unlock Petaflops Power, UD Researchers Report
A new computing concept--patterned after successful space missions--may soon help University of Delaware researchers complete the blueprint for a supercomputer 1 million times more powerful than the most advanced PC now on the market. Capable of processing 1 million billion commands or (1997-08-25)

Need for Speed: NSF Pursues Petaflop Computers
Kids often race their bicycles, pedaling madly to move ever faster. Then they advance to sedans, but covet sports cars, still wanting to push that envelope of speed. Computer scientists are no different. The fastest computers created today are capable of speeds of about a teraflop -- a trillion operations per second. (1996-10-25)
