  • 3D printing typically involves depositing layers of molten plastic, laser-melting powdered metal, or using UV light to harden gelatinous resin. A new technique takes yet another approach, however, by utilizing sound waves.
  • It is well known that a physically active day can make for a better night's rest, but a new study has delved into how the timing of our workouts matters and suggests steering clear of late-night sessions if you want to feel rejuvenated in the morning.
  • ​Researchers have analyzed brain scans from both multilingual and monolingual people, all of whom were previously diagnosed with either Alzheimer's disease or mild cognitive impairment (MCI).

  • ​In the average distribution system, as much as 30 percent of treated water is lost due to leaks, but the problems can be hard to pinpoint. Now, researchers have developed a technique that could have a big impact on the problem, using “noise logger” devices to spot underground leaks.
