Comments Off on 17 Year-Old’s Science Project Speeds Discovery of New Flu-Fighting Drugs

When most of us were 17, we dreamed of owning our own car and the freedom that would come with college admission. But Eric Chen dreams of much more. This California high-school senior wants to change the world, and if his collection of first place prizes from some of the most prestigious science fairs in the nation is any indication, he’s already well on his way. Chen’s groundbreaking project uses computer modeling to zero in on chemical compounds that could be effective at fighting the dreaded flu. The project took top honors at the Google Science Fair, the Siemens Science Fair, and most recently, the  Intel Science Talent Search  competition, and has already led to the discovery of some promising flu-fighting drugs .

Comments Off on EPA Unbans BP in Time for New Gulf Oil and Gas Contracts

The US Environmental Protection Agency just announced that it has ended its government contract ban against British Petroleum (BP) after the company agreed to new safety standards. Following the tragic Deepwater Horizon spill in the Gulf of Mexico in 2010, the EPA banned BP from receiving any government contracts. The ban was just lifted just in time for the company to compete in an upcoming oil and gas lease sale in New Orleans, which will open the Gulf for more exploration.

Photo via Shutterstock Laptop technology has come a long way in the past decade or so, but sales of mobile phones and tablets are leaving PCs in the dust. Part of that has to do with battery life; because they use more powerful hardware, laptops simply can’t compete with longer-lasting tablet batteries. But Intel is preparing to release a new generation of Core processors , known as Haswell, that will help to bridge the gap, giving laptops 50 percent more battery life. That will enable travelers to watch up to three HD movies on a laptop before the battery conks out.
