NIST receives submissions for hash algorithm.
National Institute of Standards & Technology    Gaithersburg, MD 20899-1070
November 14, 2008 NIST has received total of 64 submissions for competition to develop cryptographic hash algorithm, a tool that converts file, message, or block of data into short fingerprint for use in digital signatures, message authentication, and other computer security applications. Algorithm ultimately chosen by NIST will be called Secure Hash Algorithm-3 and will augment hash algorithms currently specified in FIPS 180-3, Secure Hash Standard.
NIST and Columbia honored for discovery of heavy hydrogen.
National Institute of Standards & Technology    Gaithersburg, MD 20899-1070
November 14, 2008 NIST and Columbia University have been named by American Chemical Society Division of History of Chemistry as recipients of ACS Citation for Chemical Breakthrough Award in recognition of isolation of deuterium, the isotope of hydrogen commonly called heavy hydrogen. In 1931, physicists from National Bureau of Standards, NIST's predecessor, and Columbia physicists proved that deuterium actually existed. Award was given to NIST during ceremony at agency's headquarters on Nov 6, 2008.
BIO affirms safety of biotech products.
Biotechnology Industry Organization    Washington, DC 20024
November 14, 2008 In response to preliminary report released by Austrian Ministries for Agriculture and Health, Michael Wach, Managing Director, Science and Regulatory Affairs, food and agriculture for BIO, stated that BIO and member companies are confident in rigorous testing and approval regimes put in place by U.S. government. These products are tested for years before they are approved for commercialization, and there has never been any scientific evidence that biotech crops cause health effects.
Cold Atoms could replace hot Gallium in focused ion beams.Cold Atoms could replace hot Gallium in focused ion beams.
National Institute of Standards & Technology    Gaithersburg, MD 20899-1070
November 14, 2008 Scientists at NIST have developed method of focusing stream of ions into point as small as 1 nm. Because it can be used with wide range of ions tailored to task at hand, method is expected to have broad application in nanotechnology both for carving smaller features on semiconductors than are possible now, and for nondestructive imaging of nanoscale structures with finer resolution than currently possible with electron microscopes.
Femtomolar Optical Tweezers may enable sensitive blood tests.
National Institute of Standards & Technology    Gaithersburg, MD 20899-1070
November 14, 2008 NIST has issued non-exclusive license to Haemonetics for Optical Tweezer technology, which detects and measures very small concentrations of biological substance, such as a virus on a surface. Consisting of tightly focused laser beams, tweezers can trap certain objects, such as latex microspheres or biological cells, and move them around in water. Tweezers never need to be sterilized or even held, as they are ephemeral and weightless.
Nanoscale Particles are released by kitchen appliances.Nanoscale Particles are released by kitchen appliances.
National Institute of Standards & Technology    Gaithersburg, MD 20899-1070
November 14, 2008 According to NIST researchers, extremely small nanoscale particles are released by kitchen appliances in abundant amount, outnumbering previously detected, larger-size nanoparticles. Ranging in size from 2-10 nm, ultrafine particles have attracted attention because of increasing evidence that they can cause respiratory and cardiovascular illnesses. NIST found that ultrafine particles contributed to more than 90% of all particles produced by electric and gas stovetop burners/coils.
NIST assesses electrical output of electroshock weapons.
National Institute of Standards & Technology    Gaithersburg, MD 20899-1070
November 14, 2008 Groups such as Amnesty International have called for guidelines for electroshock weapons that include threshold exposures. One obstacle to development of such guidelines is that reports regarding output of electroshock weapons are inconsistent. To address this, scientists in NIST's Office of Law Enforcement Standards have developed methods for calibrating high-voltage and current measurement probes used by industry so that any inherent biases in probes are minimized.
Iron-Based Materials may unlock superconductivity's secrets.Iron-Based Materials may unlock superconductivity's secrets.
National Institute of Standards & Technology    Gaithersburg, MD 20899-1070
November 14, 2008 Researchers at NIST are decoding mechanisms behind high-temperature superconductors that industry hopes will find wide use in next-generation systems for storing, distributing, and using electricity. In 2 papers on recently discovered class of high-temperature superconductors, they report already complicated relationship between magnetism and superconductivity may be more involved than previously thought, or that whole new mechanism may drive some types of superconductors.
IPC comments to U.S. CPSC regarding electronic devices.
IPC-Association Connecting Electronics Industries    Bannockburn, IL 60015
November 14, 2008 In conjunction with ITI and CEA, IPC provided comments to Consumer Product Safety Commission on Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act, which includes requirements limiting use of phthalates and lead in products intended for children. IPC noted that most electronic devices such as laptops, desktops, and mobile internet devices should not be considered children's products and that any lead used is inaccessible to children by any reasonably foreseeable use and abuse.

Shop Rat Foundation students complete projects such as custom built motorcycle choppers, mousetrap catapults, wheelie cars, ˝ scale roadsters, and full size, 2-seat hovercrafts.
NACD releases Company Productivity Report for 2007.
The National Association of Chemical Distributors    Arlington, VA 22209
November 13, 2008 According to NACD's Company Productivity Report for 2007, member firms continued to achieve profitability, though at slower levels than in past years. Return on investment before tax return on net worth was 23.6%, 20.6%, and 16.8% for LIQ, FPP, and BPM groups, respectively. Sales growth in 2007, when measured by actual physical throughput of pounds of chemicals moving through warehouse, was a flat 1.6% for all NACD CPR respondents overall.
Study addresses cost burdens of U.S. manufacturers.
National Association Of Manufacturers (NAM)    Washington, DC 20004
November 13, 2008 Conducted by economist Jeremy Leonard, "The Tide is Turning: An Update on Structural Cost Pressures Facing U.S. Manufacturers," is scheduled to be released at media roundtable on Nov 13, 2008. Study highlights U.S. manufacturing's competitive disadvantage against 9 major trading partners in structural costs associated with taxes, employee benefits, tort litigation, pollution abatement, and energy.

Standards help reduce risk of developing diabetes.
American National Standards Institute (ANSI)    New York, NY 10036
November 12, 2008 To help prevent or delay diabetes, several national and international standards are in place to facilitate recommended monitoring of dietary intake. ISO Technical Committee 34, Food Products, offers information on fat content of foods, including meat, milk, and cheese. Another ISO standard, ISO 10504:1998, provides information on sugars that are found in many prepared foods. ASTM F2106-03 offers guidelines for treadmills, while ASTM F1250-00(2006) addresses stationary bicycles.
NACD files comments on DOT hazardous materials proposal.
The National Association of Chemical Distributors    Arlington, VA 22209
November 12, 2008 The NACD filed comments with the PHMSA on a notice of proposed rulemaking to narrow the list of materials subject to security plan requirements under DOT HM-232 regulations. Narrowing this list "to those that have the most serious potential to be effectively used in a terrorist attack will focus limited resources on the areas of greatest concern," said Jennifer Gibson. The comments also urged PHMSA and TSA to develop identical lists and to have risk assessment on specific routes.
