The unexpected benefits of adjustable rate mortgages
(University of Chicago Booth School of Business) As would be expected during a time of consumer deleveraging, households applied more than 70 percent of their mortgage savings to reducing outstanding credit card debts. Not only did the lower payments reduce mortgage defaults but credit card delinquencies fell. 'These choices had significant impact on foreclosures, house prices and employment in regions that were more exposed to interest rate declines,' the researchers concluded.

Early intervention could boost education levels
(University of Adelaide) Taking steps from an early age to improve childhood education skills could raise overall population levels of academic achievement by as much as 5 percent, and reduce socioeconomic inequality in education by 15 percent, according to international research led by the University of Adelaide.

Silencing the speech gene FOXP2 causes breast cancer cells to metastasize
(Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center) A research team led by investigators at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center has identified an unexpected link between a transcription factor known to regulate speech and language development and metastatic colonization of breast cancer.

Mathematical model shows how the brain remains stable during learning
(RIKEN) Complex biochemical signals that coordinate fast and slow changes in neuronal networks keep the brain in balance during learning, according to an international team of scientists from the RIKEN Brain Science Institute in Japan, UC San Francisco, and Columbia University in New York.

UT Arlington to host international gathering of mind, brain and education experts
(University of Texas at Arlington) University of Texas at Arlington prepares for major role in international gathering of mind, brain and education experts.

Solar energy prices see double-digit declines in 2013; Trend expected to continue
(DOE/National Renewable Energy Laboratory) Distributed solar photovoltaic system prices dropped by 12-19 percent nationwide in 2013, according to the third edition of a jointly written report on PV pricing trends from the Energy Department's National Renewable Energy Laboratory and Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. In addition, 2014 prices are expected to drop another 3-12 percent, depending on system location and market segment.

HP supercomputer at NREL garners top honor
(DOE/National Renewable Energy Laboratory) A supercomputer created by Hewlett-Packard and the Energy Department's National Renewable Energy Laboratory that uses warm water to cool its servers, and then re-uses that water to heat its building, has been honored as one of the top technological innovations of the year by R&D Magazine.

Study will teach algebra via student-authored stories that draw on their own interests
(Southern Methodist University) A new study funded by the National Academy of Education will teach algebra via student-authored stories that draw on their interests, says teaching expert Candace Walkington, Southern Methodist University. Tapping students' rich algebraic ways of reasoning during out-of-school activities -- such as sports, social networking and video games -- generates personalized connections, Walkington says. Approximately 200 pre-Algebra students in Dallas will participate. Walkington's earlier studies found students learned math more effectively working problems customized to their interests.

Quantum holograms as atomic scale memory keepsake
(Springer) A theoretical model of quantum memory for light, adapting the concept of a hologram to a quantum system has been published in EPJD. The authors demonstrate that it is theoretically possible to retrieve, on demand, a given portion of the stored quantized light signal of a holographic image -- set in a given direction in a given position in time sequence. This is done by shaping the control field both in space and time.

Researchers take big-data approach to estimate range of electric vehicles
(North Carolina State University) Researchers have developed new software that estimates how much farther electric vehicles can drive before needing to recharge. The new technique requires drivers to plug in their destination and automatically pulls in data on a host of variables to predict energy use for the vehicle.
