"Nobody listens to radio. What loudspeakers or headsets provide for
their users is always just radio programming, never radio itself. Only
in emergencies, when broadcasts are interrupted, announcers’ voices

It’s a tough life for a cancer cell. First, there’s all that exhausting, uncontrolled dividing. Then, there’s the peer pressure created by a cell’s rapidly multiplying neighbors. Not to mention being squished by the abundant fluid that accumulates as inflammation spreads in the surrounding tissue.
A single-molecule electrical circuit, in which organic compounds substituting for components such as wires, transistors, and rectifiers are all covalently bonded, just took a step closer to reality, according to a new report (J. Am. Chem. Soc., DOI: 10.1021/ja111673x). In addition to being exceedingly small—a major goal in electronics—such a circuit could have higher computing power than current silicon-based devices.
Five UCLA faculty are among 29 UC-wide who have been selected to help pave the way to a digital future for the university through the Online Pilot Project, administered by the UC Office of the President in partnership with the Academic Senate. The university hopes to begin offering as many as 25 online courses by January, 2012.
