Our cell phones, tablets, computers and other electronic gadgets have become such a huge part of our daily lives that it’s often hard to put them down—even at bedtime. Students who may question how much their professors care about teaching can also see evidence of the time and trouble taken to prepare for class. Please be aware that, although Articles in Press do not have all bibliographic details available yet, they can already be cited using the year of online publication and the DOI , as follows: author(s), article title, Publication (year), DOI. New automated drug delivery technology is under development by a firm set up by researchers and engineers from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). The NASA mission is currently en route to the asteroid after its September 2016 launch.
But we must also grapple with the issues underpinning digital culture, and realise that the shift from print to digital media was never just about technology. The major benefit of using e-mail as a language learning activity is the fact that students are using meaningful language and authentic text. Theories of technology often attempt to predict the future of technology based on the high technology and science of the time. The research team is collaborating with specialists from the Learning Technology Center at Peabody and with the Institute for Software Integrated Systems (ISIS). These include portable x-ray machines, blood-testing kits and other technology that can provide more and more of the diagnostics required to support health care, with profound consequences for the way we configure our health care system.
An Article published last month showed that RNAi can be used to investigate developmental processes in mammalian embryos ( Nature Cell Biol.2, 70-75; 2000 ). We hope that both our Technology Reviews and the original articles will contribute to the dissemination of information about technological advances that are of interest to all cell biologists.
The determination of enantiomeric excess of nonracemic, chiral substances should be supported with either GC/HPLC traces with retention times for both enantiomers and separation conditions (that is, chiral support, solvent and flow rate) or for Mosher Ester/Chiral Shift Reagent analysis, copies of the spectra.
Unless we wake up to the damage that the gadget-filled, pharmaceutically-enhanced 21st century is doing to our brains, we could be sleepwalking towards a future in which neuro-chip technology blurs the line between living and non-living machines, and between our bodies and the outside world.
