  • ‘Flailing’ Blood Cells and Plasma Signal Chronic Fatigue

    The problem, he says, is that they’re not looking deep enough. Now, [Ron] Davis; Rahim Esfandyarpour, a former Stanford research associate; and their colleagues have devised a blood-based test that successfully identified participants in a study with chronic fatigue syndrome. … A paper describing the research findings appears in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. Davis is the senior author. Esfandyarpour, who is now on the faculty of the University of California-Irvine, is the lead author.

  • ‘There are lives at stake’: PG&E criticized over blackouts to prevent California wildfires

    “There are lives at stake,” said Jack Brouwer, an engineering professor and director of the National Fuel Cell Research Center at the University of California, Irvine. “I can’t over emphasis the calamity that these events cause at the neighborhood level. Hundreds of health care facilities don’t have back-up generators,” he said. “If you’re out of power for an hour, that’s fine, but for a couple of days — those lives count as much as those that would be lost in a fire.” The blackouts could also seriously hamper local response efforts for fire emergencies, Brouwer added.

  • ‘It’s happening by design’: Two engineers tapped to lead major D.C. region universities

    In the span of two weeks, two of the largest schools in the Washington region — George Mason and the University of Maryland at College Park — named engineering deans to lead their campuses. Before being chosen for the top job at GMU, [Gregory] Washington led the engineering school at the University of California at Irvine. … “It’s not a coincidence. It’s happening by design,” Washington said in an interview.

  • ‘Expect More’: Climate Change Raises Risk of Dam Failures

    “We should expect more of these down the road,” said Amir AghaKouchak, a professor of civil engineering at the University of California, Irvine. “It’s unfortunate but this is what the trend is going to be.” Overall, he and others say, dams in the United States and elsewhere are unprepared for the changes coming in a warming world. [Subscription required, campus-wide access provided by UCI Libraries.
