President Barack Obama has said that he intends to lift a ban of federal funding for embryonic stem cell research that has been in place since August, 2001. Researchers in California have had a head
start on this critical area of medical research with funding through CIRM. When Obama lifts that ban, researchers across the US will be able to join California in an area of research that could lead
to new treatments for more than 70 diseases.
Raising the share of renewable energy from 8.5% to 20% in the overall energy consumption is a necessary contribution to the global fight against climate change and towards better control over our
energy dependence. The various uses of renewable energy are examined: electricity through wind and hydraulic energies; electricity or heat through geothermal and solar energies; electricity, heat, and
biofuel coming from biomass. The EU is a world leader in the use and deployment of technologies that exploit renewable energy sources, providing over 350.000 jobs and an annual turn-over of 30 billion

A team from UCL Neuroscience have studied how the thickness of the prefrontal cortex the part of the brain behind the eyes determines our ability to introspect on our own actions. Their groundbreaking
research is featured in the 17 September issue of Science.
Research published today is suggesting that a commonly prescribed drug to control blood sugar might increase the risk of Alzheimers. But it also suggests that using the drug in combination with
insulin might reduce the risk.

Radio frequency (RF) plasmas are attractive as electron beam sources because they allow for a design where the cathode dose not participate in electron production while providing high efficiency and
long life operation. Traditionally, hollow cathodes or tungsten filaments have been used as electron sources because of their high electron current density and relatively low power requirements.
However, their operational lifetime is limited by cathode and filament deterioration, contamination, and barium diffusion rates, and in some cases requiring a large amount of inert feed gas, thus
rendering them less suitable use in corrosive environments and sustained use.
