Sarah Kendrew Sarah Kendrew selects interesting and notable ResearchBlogging.org posts in the physical sciences, chemistry, engineering, computer science, geosciences and mathematics. She blogs about astronomy at One Small Step.

Welcome to another Monday. Some excellent posts on ResearchBlogging this week; here are a few favourites from the physical sciences sections.

Thoughtful Animal Jason Goldman describes some fascinating research into the commonality of scaling laws between cities and our brains, addressing the question of how engineering is inspired by biology.

Last week, a paper published by CERN scientists examined the potential impact of cosmic rays on cloud formation, and hence global warming. Joel at Moth Eyes does a nice job at looking at the actual science in the research, as opposed to many media interpretations of it, which shows no significant effects.

Surgery never fails to amaze me. That’s Basic Science this week features a post describing a new epoxy developed at Stanford for mending damaged arteries.

It’s been quite the year for natural disasters, and storms continue to cause chaos across the continents. Paige Brown takes a peak inside storms and describes how the structure of hurricanes can spawn tornadoes.

Thanks for the great posts, and I’ll be back next week with more picks.

    Our Federal Govt. is operating so far outside of its design parameters that this type of discussion is futile. IMO the place to begin is eliminating income tax which would force massive reductions in power and programs, bringing the govt. more in line with the founders structure. Only then can a discussion vis-a-vis federal and state govts. become worthwhile.

A significant number of households have got several cars or trucks these days, specifically those with old teenage children still dwelling at home, along with the savings upon policies can easily soon begin. So it will pay to look for a great deal.

    Thanks for the post. I have continually seen that a lot of people are wanting to lose weight simply because they wish to appear slim along with attractive. Nonetheless, they do not continually realize that there are many benefits just for losing weight in addition. Doctors declare that over weight people experience a variety of diseases that can be directly attributed to their own excess weight. The good thing is that people who are overweight plus suffering from diverse diseases are able to reduce the severity of the illnesses simply by losing weight. It is easy to see a constant but noted improvement in health whenever even a moderate amount of losing weight is accomplished.
