  • Individual careers and collective research: is there a paradox?

    Collective research has been emphasised for several years. It takes different forms collaboration among researchers of the same team, collaboration between academics to achieve a particular discovery and collaboration between researchers from private and public organisations to pool complementary assets and capabilities. Even if these collaborations appear to produce economic wealth, they can be ...

  • Algal blooms in drinking water reservoirs

    Frequent outbreaks of algal blooms are degrading water in drinking water reservoirs worldwide, making the water unusable. Algal blooms can sometimes be so massive that they are visible from outer space. Rising temperatures, prolonged water stagnation, extreme weather and increased runoff of nutrients from urban and agricultural lands are all compounding the algae problem. Especially in the ...

  • A linguistic minority in Singapore

    In Singapore, English has been the language of administration in government and MNCs since the early 1950s. Owing to historical legacy, graduates from the former Nanyang University (1955?1980), where Chinese was used as a medium of instruction, faced discrimination in the job markets for both the public sector and MNCs. Consequently, Nanyang graduates became self-employed, worked in SMEs or went ...

  • What kind of knowledge can a firm absorb?

    Economists emphasise the crucial role of absorptive capacity with regard to external knowledge. In this respect, the firm's knowledge base determines its ability to recognise, assimilate and exploit externalities. Assuming that a firm's absorptive capacity also depends upon the characteristics of external knowledge, this paper analyses the relationship between three basic concepts empirically ...

  • Using nuclear accelerator technology to make intense X-rays

    Electron accelerators, originally developed for nuclear and high energy physics research, have become by far the most intense infrared, ultraviolet and X-ray sources in the world. The increase in availability of these sources (there are now about 60 in operation around the world) has had a revolutionary effect on many branches of basic and applied research resulting in a major impact on science ...

  • Molecular architecture of quartet MOZ/MORF histone acetyltransferase complexes

    The monocytic leukemia zinc finger protein MOZ and the related factor MORF form tetrameric complexes with ING5 (inhibitor of growth 5), EAF6 (Esa1-associated factor 6 ortholog), and the bromodomain-PHD finger protein BRPF1, -2, or -3. To gain new insights into the structure, function, and regulation of these complexes, we reconstituted them and performed various molecular analyses. We ...

  • The Vreeland Spectroscope is being used by prospectors to determine what minerals are in the rocks

    Normally prospectors are totally reliant upon laboratory analysis to determine what a rock contains. Obviously, the more a prospector knows the better and is less reliant upon others. However, because no one knows everything and the Earth is full of surprises it behooves a prospector to be as equipped with as many tools of the trade as possible. Today, gizmos with flashing lights, dozens of ...
