How conditions affect cookies and air pollution control solutions
Chocolate chip cookies are one of my favorite treats. Butter, sugar, eggs, flour, vanilla, and, of course, chocolate chips. Combine the ingredients together and you get a delicious cookie. Somehow, using the same ingredients the cookies do not always turn out the same. Sometimes they are thinner and crispier. Other times, they are soft and chewy. After watching cooking shows, I have come to understand there are many factors that determine the final product. Conditions like freshness of ingredients, temperature of...

Why You Should Keep Your Air Pollution Control Technology Up To Date
Did you know that the first crewed spacecraft to leave Earth`s orbit, reach Earth`s moon, orbit it, and return safely to Earth (Apollo 8) was launched into space using the Apollo Guidance Computer (AGC), which had a real time operating system which enabled the astronauts to enter simple commands to control the spacecraft? The AGC was introduced in 1966 with approximately 64KB of memory, and it operated at 0.043MHz and weighed in at a mere 70 pounds (think of a toaster with start/stop/defrost buttons that would...
Air Pollution in Subway Systems May be Much Worse than we realized
As anyone who has ridden the subway knows, the air down there is unpleasant. New research done in Canada shows that air pollution levels in Toronto’s subway system are ten times greater than those above ground. It’s a troubling realization for subway-goers, but there are ways to keep these underground systems clean. A new study led by University of Toronto chemical engineer Greg Evans and published in Environmental Science and Technology shows that trains and platforms along the Toronto Transit...
