The University of Pittsburgh Medical Center has been working on a solution to help physicians utilize data from multiple clinical applications and break down the separations between analytics, CDS and EHR systems
Materials Scientists Turn Metal Into Glass - In a newly published study, University of Pittsburgh researchers report an experimental approach to the formation of monoatomic metallic glasses through ultrafast liquid quenching. Metallic glasses are unique in that their structure is not crystalline (as it is in most metals), but rather is disordered, with the atoms randomly arranged. They are strong, easily processed and sought for various commercial applications
Art project gives youth in Auberle programs an opportunity: The murals don't depict the abuse or trauma. Instead, the young artists were asked to reflect on concepts, such as safety, personal care, community and the presence of good people in the world.
Amphibians Evolve Resistance to Popular Pesticide ~ in a new study in Evolutionary Applications, Rickey Cothran and his colleagues at the University of Pittsburgh are the first to show evidence that non-target species, in this case frogs, may also evolve resistance to two popular pesticides. http://www.wakingtimes.com/2013/10/05/amphibians-evolve-resistance-popular-pesticide/
This report from the University of Chicago Consortium on School Research focuses on Chicago, but the lessons learned have significant applicability to districts across the country. The report is one of the first to provide research-based evidence showing that new teacher observation tools, when accompanied by thoughtful evaluation systems and professional development, can effectively measure teacher effectiveness and provide teachers with feedback on the factors that matter for improving…
