Credit goes to a team of chemistry and biochemistry students at The City College of New York for enabling the identification of a new chemical “deprotection” technique.
Undergraduates Fatou Tine, Michael Benavidez, and Marikone Gaši from Professor Barbara Zajc’s laboratory, along with Tashrique Khandaker and Lisa Guerrera from Professor Mahesh Lakshman’s group, collaborated with Dr. Vikram Basava and graduate student Nana Agyemang on the research.
In the process of chemically manipulating organic molecules, prevention of reactions at undesired sites necessitates the use of “protecting groups” that in many instances need selective removal. The team studied the removal of silicon-based protecting groups using a relatively cheap

A new “virtual breathalyzer” developed by a Ben-Gurion University of the Negev (BGU) researcher uses sensors in smartphones, smartwatches, fitness bands and virtual glasses to measure changes in gait that indicate intoxication levels with identical accuracy as police breathalyzer tests.
According to the U.S. Center for Disease Control, in 2013, one person died every 51 minutes in a motor vehicle accident caused by an alcohol-impaired driver.

For the first time, over 200 Jewish day-school principals, headmasters and senior Jewish Studies educators, from 34 countries and six continents around the world, will be gathering at the Yad Vashem International School for Holocaust Studies for a four-day conference, entitled "The Shoah and Jewish Identity: Challenges in Jewish Education." The international conference will be the largest and most prestigious gathering of leaders in Jewish education from Jewish day schools and informal
The entire Jewish community - not just students' parents - must fund Jewish education.
A resolution recently passed by more than 1000 members of the Rabbinical Council of America urges support of a paradigm shift in the funding of yeshiva day school education in the United States.
Due to the "cost disease" facing educational institutions, as well as other factors, educational costs rise more quickly than other expenses. As a result, the responsibility of providing for quality teachers
