Study finds faster, wider spread of COVID-19 in US households — ScienceDaily

COVID-19 spreads faster and more widely throughout U.S. households than previously reported, according to new preliminary research from a multicenter study led by Vanderbilt University Medical Center researchers and published in MMWR, a weekly report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The study, led by Carlos G. Grijalva, MD, MPH, associate professor […]

Tropical cyclones moving faster in recent decades: study

Credit: CC0 Public Domain About 40% of the U.S. population lives in a coastal area and in Hawai’i, nearly everyone is vulnerable to the effects of tropical storms and hurricanes. Tropical cyclones, regionally known as hurricanes or typhoons, have been moving across ocean basins faster since 1982, according to a new study published in Environmental […]

In specially coated tubes, the more viscous a liquid is, the faster it flows

Drops of honey on a hydrophobic surface. Credit: Aalto University It’s widely known that thick, viscous liquids—like honey—flow more slowly than low-viscosity liquids, like water. Researchers were surprised to find this behavior flipped on its head when the liquids flow through chemically coated capillaries. In fact, through these specially coated tubes, liquids a thousand times […]

When honey flows faster than water — ScienceDaily

It’s widely known that thick, viscous liquids — like honey — flow more slowly than low-viscosity liquids, like water. Researchers were surprised to find this behaviour flipped on its head when the liquids flow through chemically coated capillaries. In fact, through these specially coated tubes, liquids a thousand times more viscous flow ten times faster. […]
