The Ten Things Everyone Should Know About Science Part VI

  • You may be able to quote Shakespeare, but what are you like on Big Bang theory?
  • The Financial Times gives non- scientifically minded readers a leg up the tree of knowledge.

Molecules and chemical reactions

  • On earth, most atoms do not exist on their own but are joined together with others as molecules. Or, using different terminology, most elements combine to form compounds. Chemistry is all about the reactions that make and rearrange the bonds between atoms.
  • Organic chemistry concentrates on carbon, which can form a greater variety of compounds than any other element. The most important molecules of life, proteins and DNA, are based on long chains of carbon atoms linked to other elements - particularly hydrogen, oxygen and nitrogen.
  • All chemical reactions involve a change in energy. Most release energy, usually as heat; our bodies are warmed by organic reactions based ultimately on the oxidation of the food we eat. (A few reactions give off energy as light rather than heat - a property exploited by fireflies and glow-worms.) On the other hand, ''endothermic'' reactions absorb energy from the environment (which is why commercial cold-packs can chill a drink within a few minutes).
  • Many reactions need a chemical push to get started. This is provided by a ''catalyst'', a substance that speeds up a reaction without being consumed by it. Enzymes are the biological catalysts on which life depends.
  • Why does it matter?
  • We are all made of chemical compounds, and every aspect of biology runs on chemical reactions. Chemistry- based industries include oil and petrochemicals, pharmaceuticals and biotechnology, food processing and paints.
  • What next?
  • Although chemistry is a relatively mature science, chemists continue to discover different and more efficient ways to carry out reactions. These will synthesise new materials, from plastics to pharmaceuticals, while producing less pollution than today.
  • Fear factor: chattering teeth.
  • What's next - Digital data?

    The Ten Things Everyone Should Know About Science, Pt VII

    • US Business Confidence
    • U.S. business confidence fell to a new record low at the start of 2008 and is consistent with recession. Sentiment is stronger elsewhere across the globe, particularly in Asia, although it is down everywhere since the subprime financial shock began this past summer. Expectations regarding the first half of 2008 are especially bleak, plunging to another new low last week. Businesses have also become notably cautious with respect to their inventories and office space needs. Hiring and fixed investment are soft, but holding up better. Pricing pressures have risen with oil prices near $100 per barrel, but remain very subdued compared to the pressures that prevailed during previous oil price spurts.
    • Consumer Credit (G19)
    • Consumer credit increased in November by $15.5 billion to $2.505 trillion. The details of the report showed that demand for both revolving and non-revolving credit increased over the month. The sharp increase in consumer credit is not surprising as consumers' ability and willingness to extract equity from their homes are waning, and thus they will have to increasingly turn to other forms of credit to finance consumption.
    • Pending Home Sales
    • The pending home sales index declined by 19.2% in November on a year-ago basis. At 87.6, the index was down by 2.6% from October. October's index was revised upward to 89.9 from 86.7. The index's large fall from a year ago suggests that home sales will slow further over the next several months in light of continued weakness in the nation's housing market.
    • Chain Store Sales
    • Chain store sales increased 0.4% in the week ending January 5 and year-over-year growth fell to 1.9%, as comparisons were again difficult. Despite the weak figures, the ICSC reported aggressive gift card redemption in the week after Christmas.
