Soap makes a unique and personal gift, especially when it is homemade. You can also sell your soap at a farmer’s market or just use it yourself and it is a great way to get rid of old grease and fat that would otherwise find it’s way to sewers or landfills.
Evanston, Illinois, US – New cancer treatments in the form of diamond-coated chemotherapy drugs look promising. One of the primary difficulties with battling cancer has been getting the drugs to stay in the tumor long enough to kill it. Tumors, over time, develop “pumps” that evacuate the drug before it has a chance to work. Researchers have been working on a method of binding chemotherapy drugs to diamond nanoparticles, in an attempt to get the drugs “stuck” in the tumor. The particles are too large to be pumped out. With a longer drug residence time, tumors are reduced in size much more effectively.
Controlled Source Electromagnetic (CSEM) surveying is becoming possible in shallow water as well as deep, reported exploration advisor Frieder Roth at the March 10 Heiland lecture. He then explained the technical challenges of shallow water CSEM surveying and offered a few possible solutions.
Methane (natural gas) from coal beds has long been a source of clean energy. Abundantly available, it burns cleanly and requires minimal processing to be used as a fuel. However, a supply problem is developing. Coal beds have a limited supply of the gas, and it take a long time to recharge the reservoirs. Gas drilling companies initially make large profits on the gas, because it essentially pumps itself out of the wells. After a time, however, the pressure of the gas drops to the point where it no longer makes sense to keep harvesting it.
