    National Institutes of Health Networks to Advance Emotional Well-being Research

    National Institutes of Health Networks to Advance Emotional Well-being Research | site |



    (Information contained in National Institutes of Health [NIH] press release dated: February 1, 2021)

    Five new research networks totaling $3.13 million in funding from the National Institutes of Health will allow investigators to refine and test key concepts that advance the study of emotional well-being. Emotional well-being has been defined as an overall positive state of one’s emotions, life satisfaction, sense of meaning and purpose, and ability to pursue self-defined goals. The opportunity to research emotional well-being and its core components — a sense of balance in emotion, thoughts, social relationships, and pursuits — aligns with NIH’s broader objectives of fostering health promotion and disease prevention. For example, having a sense of purpose in life has been shown to reduce the risk of heart attack and stroke. These research networks, f...

    On January 11, then-Acting Secretary of Homeland Security Chad F. Wolf approved the Department’s first-ever Strategic Approach for Arctic Homeland Security, a landmark document that positions DHS to more effectively tackle emerging risks in the region as geopolitical interest and competition grows.

Receding icecaps and increased traffic will necessitate an expanded DHS footprint in a number of areas, including trade and travel facilitation and cyber and infrastructure security. With this Strategic Approach, the Department is now increasingly prepared to anticipate and respond to these new challenges. This groundbreaking vision outl...

  • U.S. Department of Energy Announces 72 Million Dollars to Advance High-Temperature Concentrating Solar Power Systems

    U.S. Department of Energy Announces $72 Million to Advance High-Temperature Concentrating Solar Power Systems




    Washington, DC - - (May 15, 2018) - - Today, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) announced $72 million for new projects to advance high-temperature concentrating solar power (CSP) technologies. These projects will extend previous research on high-temperature components, develop them into integrated assemblies, and test these components and systems through a wide range of operational conditions. CSP technologies use mirrors to reflect and concentrate sunlight onto a focused point where it is collected and converted into heat. This thermal energy can be stored and used to produce electricity whenever it is needed. The best commercially available technologies can only reach 565 °C. The high-temperature thermal systems targeted by this program seek to achieve at least 700 °C, wh...
