Taking Their Vitamins: Researchers Find Bacterioplankton Rely on Environmental Vitamin B1 Rather Than Making Their Own
Researchers find that more bacterioplankton utilize vitamin B1 or B1 precursors from their environment than synthesize their own.
Not All Analyses Are Equal: Physicists Create Guidelines for Non-Equilibrium Measurements of Many-Body Systems
When it comes to non-equilibrium physics, not all assumptions are created equal.
State Pension Plans Would Be Better Off Avoiding External Management Fees
Recent research finds state pension plans would be better off avoiding external asset managers when investing their assets – and would carry substantially smaller unfunded liabilities if they simply invested in a conventional index fund.

For Wineries, Competition Boosts Profits From Sustainability
An international study finds that the more sustainability practices a winery has in place, the better its financial performance – and the effect is enhanced when a winery perceives significant pressure from competitors.
Approach Paves Way for New Generation of Antimicrobial Materials
Researchers have successfully developed materials with the ability to render bacteria and viruses inactive using only ambient oxygen and visible-wavelength light. The new approach opens the door to a range of new products aimed at reducing the transmission of drug-resistant pathogens.
