All life on earth is based on organic biology – in the form of carbon compounds – but the inorganic world is considered to be inanimate.
Researchers at the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (UAB) have obtained a formula for building a ” Antimagnet.” that can nullify the magnetic field, a discovery that was published in the New Journal of Physics.

Apr. 18, 2011 — Scientists have discovered a method to control the gas-phase selective catalytic combustion of methane, so finely that if done at room temperature the reaction produces ethylene, while at lower temperatures it yields formaldehyde.
Magnetic Gels on the Move Miklós Zrínyi of Semmelweiss University in Budapest, Hungary, has created some gels that are anything but gellin’. In fact, these gels are moving, shaking, and otherwise getting around with a little help from magnetism.
Apr. 14, 2011 — Miniature architectural forms -- some no larger than viruses -- have been constructed through a revolutionary technique known as DNA origami.
Apr. 14, 2011 — A team of researchers from the University of Arizona and Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute have increased the toughness of ceramic composites by using graphene reinforcements that enable new fracture resistance mechanisms in the ceramic.
Apr. 15, 2011 — A team led by Professor Andre Geim, a recipient of the 2010 Nobel Prize for graphene, can now show that electric current -- a flow of electrons -- can magnetise graphene. The results, reported in Science , could be a potentially huge breakthrough in the field of spintronics. Spintronics is a group of emerging technologies that exploit the intrinsic spin of the electron, in addition to its fundamental electric charge that is exploited in microelectronics.
Apr. 18, 2011 — University of Maryland researchers have discovered a way to control magnetic properties of graphene that could lead to powerful new applications in magnetic storage and magnetic random access memory.
Air Compressor Motor Vin Marshall I recently moved my shop, and in addition to the big issues, from forklift rental to sleep deprivation, we also had to deal with things like three-phase power, a variation of power delivery often used for big equipment.
Einstein's Pedometer iTunes App Store Runners live longer, so they say, and a new iPhone app proves it through the theory of special relativity.
TURNING a vacuum into a superconductor could be as simple as zapping it with a super-powerful magnet.
