NUS food scientists create novel magnetic nanoparticles for rapid screening of pesticide residue in vegetables (mar., 20 févr. 2018)
Food scientists from the National University of Singapore (NUS) developed a rapid and highly sensitive screening technique capable of detecting minute amounts of pyrethroids in vegetables, a common type of synthetic pesticide applied on agricultural crops. The innovative strategy makes use of magnetic nanoparticles to simplify pyrethorid extraction, reducing the screening process to under two hours.

Dealing with difficult colleagues: when the problem is the doctor (lun., 19 févr. 2018)
In the current issue of Psychotherapy and Psychosomatics a topic that is seldom discussed in medical journals is analyzed. Poor communication may lead to poor patient outcomes. Although emphasis has been placed on interprofessional communication (particularly between physicians and nurses) in the health system, little has been written about problems in communication within the medical profession.

C’mon electrons, let’s do the twist! (lun., 19 févr. 2018)
Twisting electrons can tell right-handed and left-handed molecules apart. Identifying right-handed and left-handed molecules is a crucial step for many applications in chemistry and pharmaceutics. An international research team (CELIA-CNRS/INRS/ Berlin Max Born Institute/SOLEIL) has now presented a new original and very sensitive method. The researchers use laser pulses of extremely short duration to excite electrons in molecules into twisting motion, the direction of which reveals the molecules’ handedness. The research results appear in Nature Physics.

One in four Emergency staff abused by patients (lun., 19 févr. 2018)
The experience of hospital A&E staff reveals that they have resigned themselves to patient violence and aggression. In the UK, there were over 1.3million total reported assaults on NHS staff in 2016. Around the world, one in four hospital staff has experienced physical abuse. A review co-authored by Dr Ian Smith and Dr Rebecca Ashton looked at the experiences of staff in 18 countries.
