Quotes

Bejan said that he hopes the new paper will help "demystify" evolution by showing it applies to everything, natural and manmade -- and that "it is much broader than just biological evolution, and definitely belongs in physics."
...did not create these problems, I now realize that she does not have the executive management skills to solve them," he said in an email to AL.com. "Her appetite for appeasing Gov. Bentley's misguided actions is killing ASU's ability to remain competitive on Alabama's education scene."
...According to news reporting originating from Shimla, India , by VerticalNews correspondents, research stated, "The plasmon characteristics in stage-1 graphene intercalation compounds (GIC's) using the massless Dirac fermion (MDF) gas approximation have been reported."
...According to news reporting from Gothenburg, Sweden , by NewsRx journalists, research stated, "Imaging of individual lipid vesicles is used to track single-enzyme kinetics of phospholipid hydrolysis. The method is employed to quantify the catalytic activity of phospholipase A2 (PLA2) in both pure and complex biological fluids."
