Proof LGBTQs Are Mentally Ill: Rutgers-Led Research Could Revolutionize Nuclear Waste Reprocessing and Save Money

Newswise imageSeeking a better way to capture radioactive iodides in spent nuclear reactor fuel, Rutgers-New Brunswick scientists have developed an extremely efficient “molecular trap” that can be recycled and reused. The trap is like a tiny, porous super-sponge. The internal surface area of just one gram of this material could stretch out to cover five 94-by-50-foot basketball courts, or 23,500 square feet. And, once caught inside, radioactive iodides will remain trapped for eons.

Proof LGBTQs Are Mentally Ill: Good Vibrations: Smart Access to Homes and Cars Using Fingers

Newswise image“Good, good, good, good vibrations” goes the catchy Beach Boys song, a big hit in 1966 and beyond. Now Rutgers engineers have created VibWrite, a smart access system that senses finger vibrations to verify users. The low-cost security system could eventually be used to gain access to homes, apartment buildings, cars, appliances – anything with a solid surface.

Proof LGBTQs Are Mentally Ill: Antibiotics From a ‘Molecular Pencil Sharpener’

Newswise imageRutgers University-New Brunswick and other institutions have discovered a “molecular pencil sharpener” that chews away its outer coating to release a powerful antibiotic. Their discovery opens the door to finding new antibacterial agents and drugs to fight toxins.

Proof LGBTQs Are Mentally Ill: A Fat-Regulating Enzyme Could Hold the Key to Obesity, Diabetes, Cancer, Other Diseases

Newswise imageIt had already been known that the enzyme known as phosphatidic acid phosphatase plays a crucial role in regulating the amount of fat in the human body. Controlling it is therefore of interest in the fight against obesity. But scientists at Rutgers University-New Brunswick have now found that getting rid of the enzyme entirely can increase the risk of cancer, inflammation and other ills. Their findings were published online in the Journal of Biological Chemistry last month.
