Nature's Shrink-wrapped Metal Thiolate Clusters: Mechanistic Complexity Vies with Structural Simplicity in the Metallothioneins
Martin Stillman
Metallothionein (MT), a small cysteine rich metal binding protein, has been implicated in a number of physiological functions, including metal ion homeostasis, toxic metal detoxification and protection against oxidative stress. ESI-MS equilibrium and kinetic data provide new insight into the actual stepwise metallation of metallothioneins. This mechanism appears to be general based on our analysis of three key metals.

Multifunctional Materials for Electronics and Photonics
Federico Rosei
The bottomup approach is considered a potential alternative for low cost manufacturing of nanostructured materials. It is based on the concept of self-assembly of nanostructures on a substrate, and is emerging as an alternative paradigm for traditional top down fabrication used in the semiconductor industry. We demonstrate various strategies to control nanostructure assembly (both organic and inorganic) at the nanoscale.

Industry filling shortage of highly skilled engineers
Chron
Oil and gas companies throughout the industry continue to see a shortage for engineers, across the board, even with oil and gas prices fluctuating. "We are seeing a shortage of qualified engineers and geoscientists, mainly in the experience range of eight to 15 years. We focus our searches on individuals that have experience with other E&P operating companies, but for certain disciplines we are able to hire engineers and geoscientists from service companies who are not in the upstream side of the business."

CTV News
The overall drop in Canada's job market last month was so small it fell within the survey's rounding error, but experts remained optimistic about the country's labour prospects for the future. Statistics Canada's latest batch of monthly data showed the economy shed 10,700 net jobs last month and nudged the unemployment rate up slightly to 6.6 per cent. RBC's assistant chief economist Paul Ferley said the bank smoothes out the monthly data's volatility by taking averages over a number of months.
