Investigating how droplets move around on a surface shows us why it is important to set boundary conditions
Not everyone ponders sets of partial differential equations when watching droplets slide down a window on a rainy day, but, thanks to new research, those who are so inclined now have what they need to construct a robust physical and mathematical explanation of what they see.

Graphene’s stabling influence
Supercapacitors can be charged and discharged tens of thousands of times, but their relatively low energy density compared to conventional batteries limits their application for energy storage. Now, researchers in Singapore have developed an 'asymmetric' supercapacitor based on metal nitrides and graphene that could be a viable energy storage solution.

Sarcasm, white lies and teasing can be difficult to identify for those with certain disorders. For those who suffer from diseases like Alzheimer's or Parkinson's, or neurodevelopmental conditions such as Autism spectrum disorder, identifying white lies may be even harder. But new video inventory may help, say researchers.

Extreme heatwaves may hit Europe in the short term
Regional climate projections for the two coming decades (2021-2040) suggest enhanced probability of heatwaves anywhere in Europe, which would be comparable or greater than the Russian heatwave in 2010 - the worst since 1950 - according to a new article. Using an improved heatwave index, the article also ranks the 10 record-breaking heatwaves that have struck the continent in the last 65 years.

Instrument to measure brand embarrassment developed by economists
Whether people wear T-shirts with a big logo of a brand depends on a person's "brand embarrassment tendency" (BET). Embarrassment is an intense, negative emotion and it derives from worrying about the possibility of other peoples' negative judgement about oneself. Economists have developed an instrument to measure this brand embarrassment and have found that embarrassing clothing is not only a problem of insecure teenagers. In addition the measuring tool can be used to assess the 'embarrassment potential' of a particular brand.
