The concept of conductors and insulators is a simple one: the capability of a material to let electricity flow comes from the manner in which electrons within their atoms are set. According to these configurations, all materials out there are either insulators or conductors of electricity. However, the category of superconductors is what has left the scientists puzzled- mostly difficult to model these uniformly in...

Medicine is one of the most coveted and noble professions- and this is no joke. The studying and knowledge part of it is one giant part of it- it enables one to stand in a position toassess and understand what the patient is undergoing- but another testing element of this profession is the responsibility of dealing with patients who could be in pain, not able...

Using screws and wires for fixing fractured bones is a common procedure. In fact, in some cases, these may be the only solution. However, what is also common is the probability of these screws causing an infection. It is common for patients to feel an irritation in the operated area, and if on further check-up, the problem is considered severe, the screws and such other...

I agree that there are other greeting words, for example, ‘Hello’, but ‘Hi’ is the most basic. We can call anyone ‘hi’ across the world, but can we use this word to communicate with someone beyond this human world,...

Among the migrants and refugees of the World War II who came to the U.S., many were great scientists. Albert Einstein, Hans Bethe and many more fled from the rule of Nazis and were able to make their valuable contributions. However, there are many stories of refugees and scientists who did not reach the U.S. shores.   Laurelle Leff, Michelle Borkin and John Wihbey are some faculty...

The debate on female underrepresentation in the  Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) fields largely has two sides. One argues that socialisation is to be blamed while the other stands for the idea that there are certain biological differences between men and women, which results in them having different interests. Women, proponents of this model claim, don’t develop a fascination with the mechanical and the...

A magnet is a material or object that produces a magnetic field. This magnetic field is invisible but is responsible for the most notable property of a magnet: a force that pulls on other ferromagnetic materials, such as iron, and attracts or repels other magnets. Large-scale magnets capable of high magnetic fields are a core enabling technology for many areas of scientific research, medicine, imaging,...

Often people tend to see disabled people as weak and incompetent but that’s just their thoughts limiting them from seeing beyond the disability. We are quite familiar with Helen Keller- an American author, political activist, and lecturer. She did not let her disability stand in her path of success and became the first woman to earn a Bachelor of Arts degree. Similarly, the legendary author...
