    America must protect 5 crucial technologies to remain superpower, officials warn

    WASHINGTON – U.S. intelligence officials have issued a stark warning: America’s status as a global superpower depends on maintaining a lead in five key technologies – and America’s rivals are trying to steal every one of them. Officials said they are concerned that foreign theft of American technologies could not only rob the United States of economic leadership in the key sectors, but could threaten the country’s ability to even remain active in the industries at all. The five technologies identified by intelligence officials are: Officials cited legal and illegal activities, particularly those conducted by China, that have crippled competitiveness

    Carbon Capture Technologies Are Improving Nicely

    The National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL) is known for its far-reaching array of experiments. It’s now wrestling with what may be its toughest one: how to stimulate the technologies for three new industries to capture, transport and store the climate-changing emissions of fossil fuels. The laboratory, like other Department of Energy labs, does its work through partnerships with industries and universities. From its recent experiences, it estimates that trapping, shipping and storing carbon dioxide will eventually create “tens of thousands of jobs.” The work will often use similar skills to those required by fossil fuel industries, including coal-fired power plants

    Big data dreams for tiny technologies | MIT News

    Small-molecule therapeutics treat a wide variety of diseases, but their effectiveness is often diminished because of their pharmacokinetics — what the body does to a drug. After administration, the body dictates how much of the drug is absorbed, which organs the drug enters, and how quickly the body metabolizes and excretes the drug again. Nanoparticles, usually made out of lipids, polymers, or both, can improve the pharmacokinetics, but they can be complex to produce and often carry very little of the drug. Some combinations of small-molecule cancer drugs and two small-molecule dyes have been shown to self-assemble into nanoparticles with
