Scientists Discover Mechanism of Sugar Signaling in Plants

A paper in the journal Science Advances describes how the moving parts of a particular plant protein control whether plants can grow and make energy-intensive products such as oil — or instead put in place a series of steps to conserve precious resources. The study focuses specifically on how the molecular machinery is regulated by a molecule that rises and falls with the level of sugar — plants’ main energy source.

Pickleball Courts in a Legal Pickle #ASA186

As communities are flooded with pickleball courts to satiate the hunger for the snack-named game, HOAs and city councils face litigation by those whose lives are disrupted by pickleball’s din. The sport is uniquely noisy due to the hard paddles and balls, and the popping sound the game produces is sharp and persistent. Charles Leahy used his legal expertise and mechanical engineering experience to investigate how communities respond to the pickleball problem. Leahy will present his findings and recommendations for limiting pickleball noise at the 186th ASA Meeting.
