Essay competition - Feeding the poor today and everyone on the planet tomorrow

02.05.2008
What are the issues, and what can be done to avert a global food crisis?

ResearchSEA has partnered with Helium.com to bring you the ResearchSEA – Asia Research News Citizen Journalism Awards. This essay contest is open until 30 May 2008. The winner will be awarded a cash prize of US$125. All ResearchSEA members are invited to take part.

To raise the profile of research issues in Asia, ResearchSEA has partnered with Helium to bring you the ResearchSEA – Asia Research News Citizen Journalism Awards.

The essay title is: Feeding the poor today and everyone on the planet tomorrow: What are the issues, and what can be done to avert a global food crisis?

Write a unique article in 1,000 words or less. Essays should be newsworthy, written in nonspecialist language and contain minimal research jargon. All references must be attributed. Where possible, the articles should highlight research conducted in or about Asia.

The winning writer will receive a ResearchSEA – Asia Research News Citizen Journalism Award and a cash prize of $125 and featured on ResearchSEA’s website and in email newsletters which are read by thousands of editors, journalists and public members around the world.

This contest will remain active through Friday, May 30, at noon. All ResearchSEA members are invited to take part.

Im Focus: Manipulating Electron Spins Without Loss of Information

Physicists have developed a new technique that uses electrical voltages to control the electron spin on a chip. The newly-developed method provides protection from spin decay, meaning that the contained information can be maintained and transmitted over comparatively large distances, as has been demonstrated by a team from the University of Basel’s Department of Physics and the Swiss Nanoscience Institute. The results have been published in Physical Review X.

For several years, researchers have been trying to use the spin of an electron to store and transmit information. The spin of each electron is always coupled...

Im Focus: The proton precisely weighted

What is the mass of a proton? Scientists from Germany and Japan successfully did an important step towards the most exact knowledge of this fundamental constant. By means of precision measurements on a single proton, they could improve the precision by a factor of three and also correct the existing value.

To determine the mass of a single proton still more accurate – a group of physicists led by Klaus Blaum and Sven Sturm of the Max Planck Institute for Nuclear...

Im Focus: On the way to a biological alternative

A bacterial enzyme enables reactions that open up alternatives to key industrial chemical processes

The research team of Prof. Dr. Oliver Einsle at the University of Freiburg's Institute of Biochemistry has long been exploring the functioning of nitrogenase....

Larsen C Ice Shelf rift finally breaks through

A one trillion tonne iceberg - one of the biggest ever recorded -- has calved away from the Larsen C Ice Shelf in Antarctica, after a rift in the ice,...

Im Focus: Laser-cooled ions contribute to better understanding of friction

Physics supports biology: Researchers from PTB have developed a model system to investigate friction phenomena with atomic precision

Friction: what you want from car brakes, otherwise rather a nuisance. In any case, it is useful to know as precisely as possible how friction phenomena arise –...
