TechandComputer (Sep. 12, 2012) — Around the world, more than 850 million people use Facebook regularly to communicate. More and more employers also are using Facebook as a way to examine potential employees before making hires. Now, researchers at the University of Missouri have found that comments left by users on Facebook profile pictures strongly affect the level of perceived attractiveness of the profile owner physically, socially, and professionally.

Electronic medical record improves physician compliance of reviewing portal images, study suggests

  • PDF
TechAndComputer (July 2, 2012) — The use of an electronic medical record (EMR) for reviewing portal images dramatically improves compliance with timeliness and record keeping, according to a study in the July issue of the Journal of the American College of Radiology. Portal images are used to verify the positioning of patients during daily radiation treatments to improve the accuracy of the radiation field placement, to reduce exposure to normal tissue and to deliver accurate dose to...

Watching the quantum race of electrons

  • PDF
TechAndComputer (June 21, 2012) — For the first time ever, a German team of physicists has observed the race of two electrons that are liberated from atoms in the course of photoionization, i.e. under the influence of laser radiation. In order to resolve the electron's movement during only 50 femtoseconds, scientists from Hamburg and Kiel Universities and DESY (Deutsches Elektronen-Synchrotron -- one of the world's leading accelerator centres) used an ultra fast terahertz streak camera...
