The UPS hydraulic hybrid truck shows potential savings of 1,000 gallons of fuel per year, which drove most of the vans. This demonstration project will demonstrate the effectiveness of hybrid hydraulic technologies hostlers at the farm and it has the potential for a broad national and international adoption because the technology easy to to install, standards. Major modifications to a vehicle the operating system or heat requirements.. The hydraulic hybrid technology is expected to fuel efficiency of the fuel efficiency of the yard tractor by 50 to 60 % to reduce or eliminate emissions during idling, and decrease brake wear. The same hydraulic hybrid technology that dramatically improvement in energy efficiency has been shown in vans may be used with other devices to be used to move goods. (more…)

An analysis in a letter from Senator Jay Rockefeller published, suggest that the amount of money insurance to cover medical costs might be less than the company claim to spend.

And WellPoint Inc. Spent 74 % of individual policy premiums on health care costs, , a, a West Virginia Democrat and chairman of the Commerce, Science and Transportation Committee, said in the letter to today. Companies spent 80 % of the premiums they collected the members on small business strategies to deal with. When Congress is working on the overhaul overhaul proposals that proposed $ 500 billion subsidies uninsured buy policies also help on it is important that consumers have a guarantee that the overwhelming majority of subsidy to to have proper medical care, Rockefeller said. The numbers are called Rockefeller are less than the amounts of the insurance industry in the past, and ‘ to billions of dollars, claiming the health insurance industry spend health care health care, but actually uses to boost their profits and not pay pension costs, he said in his letter (Nussbaum..

Now chemists can small molecules to block the docking station and explore other approaches to hunt it disturbing. – ‘This discovery suggests that we might be able to to treat injuries to the central nervous system with a pill in the future,’says Silver, is a professor at Case Western Reserve University. ‘In reality, we probably need a drug cocktail because CSPGs not. The only obstacle to the regeneration ‘.

We had several hypotheses, but we had no idea that CSPGs actually sitting on the surface of nerve cells and speak directly with the cellular machinery. ‘.. Flanagan asked whether any of these receptors recognize CSPGs could. Motivated by the therapeutic potential of such a discovery, Flanagan lab postdoctoral researcher Yingjie Shen and graduate student Alan Tenney – who are first authors of the study – initial experiments performed in vitro and showed that, in fact, one of these receptors bind CSPGs. Careful follow-up experiments in culture dishes on neurons missing the receptor – called PTP sigma – and studies in mice confirmed the connection. ‘When John came to me at a meeting in February and told me he’d found a receptor for CSPGs, I was shocked,’says Silver.
