Now new research reports a shortcut for discovering and improving metallic glass -- and, by extension, other elusive mate

Individual impurity atoms detectable in grapheneA team including physicists from the University of Basel has succeeded in using atomic force microscopy to clearly obtain images of individual impurity atoms in graphene ribbons. Thanks to the forces measured in the graphene's two-dimensional carbon lattice, they were able to identify boron and nitrogen for the first time, as the researchers report in the journal Science Advances.

You Were Never Really Here Is Never Really HereThe film You Were Never Really Here left me pondering two principal questions. First: How many of the rolls of duct tape sold in hardware stores each year are purchased for the express purpose of binding and/or gagging people so that violence may be inflicted upon them? And second: How many of the ball-peen hammers sold are bought specifically in order to inflict such violence? Duct tape and ball

Newly identified bacteria may help bees nourish their youngA team of researchers at the University of California, Riverside have isolated three previously unknown bacterial species from wild bees and flowers. The bacteria, which belong to the genus Lactobacillus, may play a role in preserving the nectar and pollen that female bees store in their nests as food for their larvae.

Theoreticians finally prove that 'curly arrows' tell the truth about chemical reactionsTeam used theoretical modelling, looking at wave functions in new ways to show why curly arrows work. This unprecedented method of extracting the movements of electrons during a chemical reaction is a breakthrough in connecting traditional depictions of chemical mechanism with state-of-the-art quantum chemical calculations.

New study finds omega-3 fatty acid supplements ineffective in treating dry eye diseaseFindings from a new randomized clinical trial, now show that contrary to long-held beliefs, omega-3 supplements are no more effective than placebo at alleviating dry eye symptoms. For years, patients and their eye doctors have turned to omega-3 fatty acids commonly found in fish-derived supplements as a treatment for the disease. The results are published today in the New England Journal of Medici
