Supramolecular Nanostructures in Highly Dilute Solutions Required for Biological Activity
Stable structures containing millions of water molecules in highly dilute solutions of chemical compounds are formed only in the presence of ambient electromagnetic fields; they exhibit physical properties distinct from bulk water and are essential for biological activity

Emilio Del Giudice - Illuminating Water and Life
Emilio collapsed at his home in Milan Italy while in the throes of writing scientific papers with his colleagues and collaborators; he died in hospital later that evening, 30 January 2014. Emilio is the most brilliant scientist in the world who has inspired me among countless others. He is also the kindest, most generous, entertaining, wise and witty man. I had been so looking forward to discussing my latest ideas with him on mathematics, art, beauty, consciousness, and the universe (see The Story of Phi and other articles in the series); for such is his wide ranging interests and passion. That was not to be. He was taken away suddenly and without warning.

Sustainable Cities as Organisms - A Circular Thermodynamics Perspective
Universal scaling of biological rates with body mass is based on thermodynamics, but requires a circular thermodynamics based on coupled cycles of energy and material transformation, which applies also to sustainable systems including cities

Large Cities in USA less Green than Small Ones
Large cities emit more CO2 and earn no more per capita than small cities, contradicting the 'economy of scale' that makes larger cities 'greener' than small ones and raising doubt over claims of other benefits
