Gas Hydrates Database aids energy and climate research.
National Institute of Standards & Technology    Gaithersburg, MD 20899-1070
October 12, 2009 NIST has developed free, online collection of data on properties of gas hydrates, naturally occurring crystalline materials that are a potential energy resource and may affect Earth's climate. Database contains 12,000 individual data points for about 150 compounds spanning 400 different chemical systems. Data include phase equilibria (proportions of solid, liquid, and gas phases in material at given temperature and pressure) and thermophysical property information such as thermal conductivity.
NIST recommends keeping power generators farther from house.
National Institute of Standards & Technology    Gaithersburg, MD 20899-1070
October 12, 2009 According to research by NIST, to prevent potentially dangerous levels of carbon monoxide, users may need to keep gasoline-powered generators 25 ft from house. NIST building researchers simulated multiple scenarios of a portable generator operating outside of a 1-story house, using both test structure and 2 different computer models. For house modeled in study, researchers found a generator position 15 ft away from open windows was not far enough to prevent carbon monoxide entry.

SP 800-127 recommends taking advantage of built-in security features to protect data confidentiality on the network, as well as developing WiMAX security policy and using WiMAX technology that supports EAP methods.
Cousin of Elusive Magnetic Monopoles found at NIST.
National Institute of Standards & Technology    Gaithersburg, MD 20899-1070
October 12, 2009 By creating compound that under certain conditions forms large, molecule-sized monopoles that behave exactly as predicted particles should, research team at NIST's Center for Neutron Research, led by Hiroaki Kadowaki of Tokyo Metropolitan University, has found a way to explore magnetic monopoles in the laboratory. They are not the monopole particles predicted by Paul Dirac in 1931, but their properties will allow researchers to test how theoretical monopole particles should behave and interact.

Proposed Standard covers active area, multi-purpose flooring.
ASTM International    West Conshohocken, PA 19428-2959
October 9, 2009 Developed by ASTM International Committee F06 on Resilient Floor Coverings, proposed standard WK24836 will validate baseline performance standard for flooring designed to reduce chance of injury from falls by participants of indoor activities, including children in schools and elderly people in long-term care facilities. Flooring in facilities covered by standard must not only be shock absorbent, but must also be firm enough to accommodate heavy items that might damage softer surfaces.
IPC opposes Canadian proposal to ban rosin.
IPC-Association Connecting Electronics Industries    Bannockburn, IL 60015
October 9, 2009 IPC submitted comments on proposal to ban 5 rosin-containing substances from products manufactured/sold in Canada, and encourages members/industry to contact Canadian Department of Environment by October 20 to join efforts to oppose ban.
