Sept. 12 (UPI) -- Wide receiver Kevin White has landed on injured reserve after suffering a serious injury for the third consecutive season.White, 25, was the No. 7 overall pick in the 2015 NFL Draft. He had two catches for six yards in the Chicago Bears' loss Sunday to the Atlanta Falcons before exiting with a fractured shoulder blade. The Bears also added linebacker Jerrell Freeman to injured reserve due to a pectoral injury.Freeman, a six-year veteran, had 110 combined tackles in 12 games last season.Chicago also signed linebacker Jonathan Anderson and wide receiver Tanner Gentry to its active roster from its practice squad.

Fluorine lends white graphene new qualities

Fluorine lends white graphene new qualities

Science
July 14 (UPI) -- With just a bit of fluorine, white graphene becomes a wide-bandgap semiconductor with magnetic properties. The new material could be used in electronics designed to perform under extreme conditions.White graphene is a two-dimensional atomic sheet of hexagonal boron nitride. Its hexagonal structure is similar to that of regular graphene, but the atomic layer is made up of boron nitride, a combination of boron and nitrogen atoms, instead of carbon.Although graphene is more chemically and electrically stable than graphene, allowing it to function under more extreme circumstances, like in space.But the material is typically employed as an insulator, not a semi-conductor."Boron nitride is a stable insulator and commercially very useful as a protective coating, even in cosmetics...
