23:59 Scientists trace timeline of Alzheimer's slow, deadly path
CHICAGO (Reuters) - The first Alzheimer's-related changes begin to develop some 25 years before memory and thinking problems appear, according to a new study that may offer a valuable guide for companies looking to test new treatments in people at an earlier stage. The study, published on Wednesday in the New England Journal of Medicine, offers a timeline of changes in spinal fluid, brain size, the appearance of brain plaques and other factors that precede the onset of Alzheimer's in people who are genetically predestined to develop the brain-wasting disease. ...

23:24 White rot fungus boosts ethanol production from corn stalks, cobs and leavesScientists are reporting new evidence that a white rot fungus shows promise in the search for a way to use waste corn stalks, cobs and leaves rather than corn itself to produce ethanol to extend supplies of gasoline. Their study on using the fungus to break down the tough cellulose and related material in this so-called "corn stover" to free up sugars for ethanol fermentation appears in the ACS' journal Industrial & Engineering Chemistry Research.
23:23 New moon spotted orbiting Pluto, scientists say
Hubble images reveal dwarf planet's fifth known moon, which measures as little as six miles across
Pluto may have been kicked out of the planet club, but it has gained yet another companion.
Scientists announced on Wednesday the discovery of the smallest moon yet around the icy orb, bringing the count of its known moons to five.
"We're not finished searching yet," said Hal Weaver of Johns Hopkins University.
The discovery was made using the Hubble space telescope to observe Pluto before the scheduled arrival of a Nasa spacecraft in 2015.
When the New Horizons craft launched in 2006, Pluto was a fully fledged planet, but it has since been demoted to dwarf planet status by the International Astronomical Union.
The newly discovered moon, known as P5 until it gets a proper name, appeared as a faint fleck in the Hubble images.
Scientists estimated the moon to be six to 15 miles across, smaller than the still nameless one that they spotted last year, which is eight to 21 miles.
Pluto's largest moon, 650-mile-wide Charon, was discovered in 1978. Two smaller moons, Nix and Hydra, were found in 2005.
The moons are thought to have formed after an ancient collision between Pluto and an object in the Kuiper Belt, a disk teeming with small bodies that lies beyond the orbit of Neptune.
Since the launch of the New Horizons mission, scientists have been studying the Kuiper Belt in search of debris that might pose a danger to the spacecraft.
Mark Showalter of the Seti Institute said names for the latest new moon, and last year's discovery, will not be proposed until the team finishes analysing the Hubble data – in case there are more hidden moons.guardian.co.uk © 2012 Guardian News and Media Limited or its affiliated companies.

22:56 Branded Clouds in Microsoft Partners' FutureMicrosoft told partners attending its Worldwide Partner Conference in Toronto Tuesday that the software giant will be providing them with the services and tools they need to build more flexible cloud-based services for their customers -- including branded clouds.
The seamlessly interrelated technologies rolled into the community technology preview, or CTP, unveiled by Microsoft promises to enable hosting service providers to use their own Windows Server data centers to deliver capabilities similar to Microsoft's Windows Azure platform.
"We've taken everything that we've learned from running data centers and services at a global scale to usher in the new era of the Cloud OS," said Satya Nadella, president of Microsoft's server and tools business. "Microsoft offers partners modern yet familiar technology to meet customer demand on their path to the cloud."
Microsoft's Windows Azure, Windows Server 2012 and System Center 2012 platforms collectively deliver the requisite Cloud OS components for scaling a standard unit of hardware abstraction all the way up to the equivalent of an entire data center that can be managed from a single, consistent interface.
"With Windows Azure, System Center and Windows Server 2012, we are delivering the ultimate cloud OS," said Jeff Woolsey, Microsoft's principal program manager for Windows Server and Cloud.
Going After VMware's Customers
Through its Switch to Hyper-V program, Microsoft clearly intended to steal customers from virtualization technology provider VMware. During his WDC presentation Tuesday, for example, Woolsey showed how CTP can outperform VMware's virtual machines.
"The guys at VMware claim that they can deliver a maximum of 300,000 IOPS from a single virtual machine," Woolsey noted. "We're delivering over 1 million IOPS from a single virtual machine. That's over three times VMware, and folks, I'm just getting warmed up."
What's more, the new offloaded data transfer (ODX) technology built into Windows Server 2012 will enable...
