#PennState researchers say the next cool tech may actually be cool tech.
They say nanowires might be the key to creating personal cooling devices that can help firefighters, athletes, foundry workers and other people who just want to keep cool.
And another cool thing -- these devices are environmentally friendly.
"Most electrocaloric ceramic materials contain lead," said Qing Wang, professor of materials science and engineering. "We try not to use lead. Conventional cooling systems use coolants that can be environmentally problematic as well. Our nanowire array can cool without these problems."

Firefighters entering burning buildings, athletes competing in the broiling sun and workers in foundries may eventually be able to carry their own, lightweight cooling units with them, thanks to a nanowire array that cools, according to Penn State materials researchers.

"When we, as researchers, study organizations, or even when we study how managers look at employees, we see that businesses often assume that the relationship terminates when a person leaves the organization," said Sumita Raghuram, associate professor, human resource management, #PennState. "However, in our research, we extend the employment boundary outside of the organization. We believe that the relationship does not end there and you have to be mindful of the people who actually left the organization."

Even though saying farewell to departing employees is a more frequent occurrence in today's high-turnover industries, researchers suggest that leaders should maintain good relationships with these workers as they exit.

During the month of April, Science major Cassandra Darnell can be found setting up her honey bee boxes at Penn State Berks. For Darnell, the boxes are part of her ongoing independent study on the bees of Berks campus that she is completing as part of her degree. #PSU4Bees http://ow.ly/4n4FIL

Student-athletes continue to excel in the classroom and surpass national averages, according to the Academic Progress Rate data collected by the National Collegiate Athletic Association. The #NCAA reported that 13 Penn State athletic teams earned perfect APR scores.
"*Penn State* student-athletes consistently demonstrate their commitment to excellence in the classroom and all their academic endeavors,” said Penn State Director of Athletics Sandy Barbour. “I am consistently amazed by, and appreciative of, their efforts to prove that academic achievement and athletic success can co-exist at a high level." http://ow.ly/4n6Gaz
Penn State student-athletes continue to excel in the classroom and surpass Division I national averages, according to Academic Progress Rate (APR) data released today (April 20) by the National Collegiate Athletic Association. The NCAA reported that 13 Penn State teams earned perfect APR scores of 1,000 in 2014-15, up from 10 the previous year, and four Penn State squads earned perfect multi-year APR scores.

The Physical and Mathematical Sciences (PAMS) Library at Penn State recently welcomed its 2 millionth visitor since May 2004, when the Mathematics Library and Physical Sciences Library closed, merged and partially reopened in PAMS' current second floor Davey Lab location. The official dedication took place in August 2005. Pattee and Paterno Libraries are now offering end-of-the-semester expanded hours.

#PennState researchers report that a deep voice is a sign of mating success, and also that men with deeper voices may be more likely to have more than one sexual partners.
According to the researchers, as males evolve to become more monogamous, there was not as much difference between male and female voices.
However, they found when mating competition intensifies and men are more polygamous, low, deep voices signaled a male’s condition to rivals and potential mates, and augmented their mating success.

#ThrowbackThursday at Penn State: This photograph, taken between 1892 and 1923, shows the original Old Willow, with Old Main in the background. The willow stood along the main driveway of the front campus entrance (on today’s Allen Street mall, across from Sackett Building). A Penn State historical marker marks the location today.

Additive manufacturing, or 3D printing, is being used in many Penn State projects, including printing replacement parts for toys, making lifelike decoys of forest pests, and creating affordable prosthetic hands for survivors of the civil war in Sierra Leone.

Additive manufacturing, sometimes known as 3D printing, is exactly what it sounds like. Working from a computer-generated 3D model, a “printer” puts down layer after layer of plastic or…

“Love used to be a big part of the city landscape, but now so many relationships are contained online,” said Clio Andris, assistant professor of #geography in Penn State's College of Earth and Mineral Sciences. “We’re interested in learning how the city’s role in #relationships has changed. Where are couples meeting and making their memories?” http://ow.ly/4n6HkU
Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman will always have Paris, and Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks had their meeting at the top of the Empire State Building in New York. But the part cities play in relationships has begun to change, according to Penn State researchers who are studying how cities — and State College specifically — play a role in modern romances.

White-tailed deer tend to eat local #plants and avoid munching on non-native #invasive plant species.
David Mortensen, professor of weed ecology in Penn State's College of Agricultural Sciences, said that the deer's reluctance to eat the new plants might be exacerbating problems with non-native plant species.
"This study provides evidence that deer impacts on plant invaders depend on plant species' palatability," he said. "Consequently, deer selectivity likely plays an important role in the invasion process. To the extent that herbivory impacts plant communities, these results suggest that deer promote the spread of some plant invaders by avoiding them."

Selective browsing by white-tailed deer likely is promoting the spread of some invasive plant species in northeastern U.S. forests, as deer avoid eating vegetation they find unpalatable.

Great place if you want to do research in gravity: I'm a graduate student in the gravity group and believe that it was a great choice to come here. Beside the excellent research, State College is a nice town (maybe a bit small) and has almost everything one can wish for - due to its size everything is also nearby. The Penn State Campus is really pretty and sometimes I just go to the Aboretum to think about my research.

As a grad student at the Food Science Department I could not be happier. I cannot talk for the maybe hundreds of other departments, but at lease in our dept and as far as I know in the College of Agriculture, most people are happy with their programs. And then we have State College... awesome city to live if you like small cities...

Big university in a small town, plenty of opportunities and resources for everyone. If you take full advantage and get involved it will certainly be an unforgettable experience. The university gets smaller the more you join clubs and activities and make them your own.
