WSU Chemist Applies Google Software to Webs of the Molecular World
The technology that Google uses to analyze trillions of web pages is being brought to bear on the way molecules are shaped and organized. Aurora Clark, an associate professor of chemistry at Washington State University, has adapted Google's PageRank software to create moleculaRnetworks, which scientists can use to determine molecular shapes and chemical reactions without the expense, logistics and occasional danger of lab experiments.

Static If I Had a Hammer All right, the C++11 Standard is done. Can we go home? Definitely not - progress waits for no one. For all its might, C++11 is not addressing a few basic needs in template programming. For example, you'd hate to have to define a new function or indeed a whole new class wherever you need an "if" statement; yet, this is exactly what we do for template code. Also, conditional overloading using the likes of std::enable_if is syntactically bulky and semantically ham
