We start off the issue with an article in the biology and medicine section on how hearing impairments among the elderly can bring about a sense of isolation.
The energy and transport section leads with an article on a comparative study between different commercial petrol grades. The research shows how to best measure fuel consumption in motor vehicles.
Next in the environment and society section we take a closer look at the Antarctic. Scientists have found that organisms in the region are unable to adapt fast enough to changes in the environment.
In our IT and telecommunications section, EU researchers are developing an assessment tool to evaluate the health-care needs of the elderly in nursing homes.
The industrial technology section leads with a story on the risk assessment criteria for engineered nanomaterials.
