Nanyang Technological University Singapore (NTU Singapore) today launched the Ageing Research Institute for Society and Education (ARISE) and the Centre for Population Health Sciences (CePHaS) to provide solutions to health and lifestyle challenges faced by the elderly.
She's tough -- capable of punching through 30-foot waves and riptides or smashing into rocks and reefs. But she's also tender, providing hope to those in peril. Meet EMILY the robotic lifeguard -- officially known as the Emergency Integrated Lifesaving Lanyard -- a remote-controlled buoy that recently was used to rescue nearly 300 Syrian migrants from drowning in the waters off the Greek island of Lesbos.
Two new sounding-rocket missions funded by NASA's Heliophysics Technology and Instrument Development for Science, or H-TIDeS, program, scientists at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md., plan to learn more about two little-understood processes.
An unsupported bipedal robot at the University of Michigan can now walk down steep slopes, through a thin layer of snow, and over uneven and unstable ground.
The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center fully supports new rules issued by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) today to extend federal regulatory authority to all tobacco products, including electronic cigarettes, cigars, hookah and other previously unregulated tobacco products.

On May 4, 1976, NASA launched a cannonball-shaped satellite that transformed studies of Earth's shape, rotation and gravity field. Now at 40, NASA's LAGEOS set the bar for Earth studies.
Scientists are trying to find a new way to produce the nutritional fatty acids called Omega 3 that are currently sourced from fish oil from the world's declining natural fish stocks.
A new app from the Association of Women's Health, Obstetric and Neonatal Nurses (AWHONN) and publisher Elsevier Inc. helps to share cutting-edge research on women's health, obstetric, and neonatal nursing.
The National Astronomical Observatories of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (NAOC) has teamed up with CSIRO engineers in the development of the world's largest single dish telescope -- the Five hundred meter Aperture Spherical Telescope (FAST). Technology developed by CSIRO will make FAST one of the most sensitive telescopes in the world, able to receive weaker and more distant radio signals, helping to explore the nature, origins and evolution of the universe.
