    (University of Seville) The study has demonstrated the involvement of a new Ca2+ ion entry pathway in angiogenesis processes and the formation of new blood vessels.

    (Northwestern University) Using mathematical modeling, researchers considered a time very early in evolution when primordial species reproduced using external fertilization. In the model, bigger reproductive cells, or gametes, presented a competitive edge because they could hold more nutrients for a potential zygote. Smaller gametes, however, required fewer resources to make, which put less stress on the parent. Organisms evolved to specialize in large or small gametes, precursors to eggs and sperm.

Heart health of shift workers linked to body clockEureka Alert 16 hours ago

    (European Society of Cardiology) Working hours that deviate from an individual’s natural body clock are associated with greater cardiovascular risk, according to research presented at ESC Preventive Cardiology 2021, an online scientific congress of the European Society of Cardiology (ESC). “Our study found that for each hour the work schedule was out of sync with an employee’s body clock, the risk of heart disease got worse,” said study author Dr. Sara Gamboa Madeira of the University of Lisbon, Portugal.

If I could have the opportunity to play for the Cowboys, it would be a great thing.’ The Dallas Cowboys have the 10th selection in the draft which is 13 days from now.

    In this episode of The Full Nerd, Brad Chacos, Alaina Yee, and Adam Patrick Murray discuss long-anticipated AMD Ryzen APUs that you might be able to buy soon, and Nvidia graphics cards that you won’t.We kick things off with AMD’s Ryzen 5000G processors, the first Ryzen APUs announced in two years. They check a lot of the boxes enthusiasts have been asking for, offering integrated Radeon graphics clocked at up to a blistering 2GHz and as many as eight Ryzen cores—bursting through the former 4-core maximum—but it’s not quite all sunshine. Fast PCIe 4.0 SSDs won’t hit full speeds with these chips, and they’ll be coming to prebuilt systems first before launching in DIY retail form later this year.To read this article in full, please click here The Full Nerd ep. 173: Ryzen 5000G APUs look great, Nvidia’s GPU crunc…PC World 8 hours ago

    Microsoft has released more information about the custom-built Ryzen Surface Edition processors found within the Surface Laptop 4, allowing potential buyers to compare them to the 11th-gen Core chips also being offered for this product line.Microsoft’s Surface Laptop 4 includes two Ryzen chips: the Ryzen 5 4680U Surface Edition, and the Ryzen 7 4980U Surface Edition. These are semi-custom processors, co-developed by AMD and Microsoft, and they required some specialized engineering. They’re not sold by AMD, and can’t be found in any other laptops. Because of the advance development time, they’re built on AMD’s older Zen 2 architecture, rather than the Zen 3 foundations of the new Ryzen 5000 Mobile chips.To read this article in full, please click here No sacrifices necessary: Be Quiet’s Silent Base 802 has plenty of room…PC World 13 hours ago

    Much of the internet adores small form factor cases, but the appeal of a good old-fashioned mid-tower can’t be denied. No difficult choices, no need for restraint—you can stuff in nearly all the components your heart might desire.Such is the allure of the Be Quiet Silent Base 802, a mid-tower case that eschews the dainty footprint of its compact rivals. At 20.8 x 11 x 21.8 inches, this one takes up the full scope of its classification, dwarfing competitors like the NZXT H510. If your first PC builds took place when setting jumper switches was the norm, the 802 will comfortably fit your mental definition of “mid-tower.”Be Quiet puts that space to good use, too, as you can see in our video above. All of the company’s gear focuses on noise minimization, and the Silent Base 802 is no exception—in fact, its side and front panels come lined with notably chunky sound-dampening material that measures 10mm thick. The default solid panel for the top of the case also sports a thinner 3mm material meant to muffle the whirring fans in your PC. You have a choice of completely going all-out on the silence angle with the non-windowed version (which provides two solid side panels with that thick foam), or the tempered-glass variant that allows you to show off your build’s innards. As an improvement over the Silent Base 801, the 802 also includes the option of mesh top and front panels that you can swap in for more airflow.To read this article in full, please click here U by Moen smart faucet review: This kitchen tool is both smart and pra…PC World 13 hours ago
