Thinking Ahead: Creating Efficient Emergency Response in San Diego

submitted by: nommad10

The San Diego Fire Department (SDFD) receives a large amount of criticism due to inefficient response times. This is problematic since there is currently a need for faster response times. Studies have been conducted to meet the demand for efficient response times. However, because San Diego is growing in population and becoming an environmental fire hazard, the demand for efficient emergency response time will be even greater in the future.

Science Nation - Solar Decathlon

Teams design and build homes powered by the sun This past October, taking a walk on the National Mall in Washington, D.C., might have been more like taking a walk into the future. Twenty solar-powered homes were sprawled across the mall's west end, transforming it from a park into something that resembled an innovative new housing development. Park purists take note: the transformation was only temporary. The homes were part of a competition. "The Solar Decathlon is a competition for...

Developing Efficient and Sustainable Transportation Systems in San Diego

The American transportation system has become increasingly dependent on one mode of transportation, the personal automobile.

Cytokines and Neutrophins in Neuroprotection

submitted by: alex01
Dr. Michael Spedding published recently a review on the role of cytokines and neurotrophins in disease. Neurotrophins (e.g. BDNF) have beneficial effects on neuronal plasticity and brain metabolism. Inflammatory cytokines (e.g. IL1beta)oppose the effects of neurotrophins. Both, neurotrophins and cytokines are targets for the development of new drugs affecting central nervous system. Brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) is the main activity-dependent neurotrophic factor. Interleukin 1beta...
