Paint samples taken from the column capital. Under the green paint layer is a beige layer, interpreted as a ground applied to prepare the stone surface before painting.

Louis A. Merlin, Ph.D., (standing) lead author and an assistant professor in FAU’s School of Urban and Regional Planning, and collaborators, discovered that most studies of crash risk use ad-hoc and atheoretical models of the relationship between measures of the built environment, traffic collisions, and injuries — an issue that almost certainly contributes to the

Collection of objects was found by divers in the Tollense river and is probably the contents of a personal pouch of a warrior who died 3,300 years ago on the battlefield.

The researchers deposited a total of 800 stamped letters with two different addressees. Credit: Jens Hellmann More In discussions in Germany on immigrants, particularly eastern Germany is often associated with attacks on foreigners and hate crimes against refugees. Research data and surveys also indicate that prejudices against immigrants are often stronger in the east of

The research supports the idea that it would not only be possible to grow food on Mars and the Moon to feed future settlers, but also to obtain viable

Some corals can recover after massive mortality episodes caused by the water temperature rise. This survival mechanism in the marine environment -known as rejuvenation- had only been described in some fossil corals so far. A new study published in the journal Science Advances reveals the first scientific evidence of the rejuvenation phenomenon in vivo in

Credit: CC0 Public Domain More Using a range of theoretical and simulation approaches, physicists from the University of Bristol have shown that liquids in contact with substrates can exhibit a finite number of classes of behaviour and identify the important new ones. Their findings, published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS),

While many people love colorful photos of landscapes, flowers or rainbows, some biomedical researchers treasure vivid images on a much smaller scale—as tiny as one-thousandth the width of a human hair. To study the micro world and help advance medical knowledge and treatments, these scientists use fluorescent nano-sized particles. Quantum dots are one type of

Setup of the microrobot-assisted high-precision wet transfer. (A) Magnetically controlled microrobots via an external magnet to align a floating 2D device on a target substrate (e.g., optical fiber and 3D microdevice). (B) View of the microrobot structure in which iron lines trapped in an elastomer matrix are used to store a preferred magnetization direction. (C)
