When You Eat Can Lead to Obesity
TEHRAN (FNA)- New research presented at the Annual Meeting of the Society for the Study of Ingestive Behavior (SSIB) suggests that, not only the amount and type of food eaten but the time of day it is eaten is important in contributing to obesity. ( 09:31:49 - 2012/07/11)

Million-Fold Increase in Computing Efficiency
TEHRAN (FNA)- Modern-day computers are based on logic circuits using semiconductor transistors. To increase computing power, smaller transistors are required. Moore's Law states that the number of transistors that can fit on an integrated circuit should double every two years due to scaling. But as transistors reach atomic dimensions, achieving this feat is becoming increasingly difficult. ( 09:29:56 - 2012/07/11)
