He has gone seven innings in each of last three starts, and before that tossed a three-hit, complete game shutout against ...
Cliff Lee . Looking for a seventh consecutive victory overall and on the road, the Reds hope to get the best of Lee on Friday night.

CIN@PHI: Bruce smacks a two-run shot off Lee in sixth CINCINNATI -- The manner in which the Reds' six-game winning streak came to an end Friday could have been penned in one of Lemony Snicket's children's novels.

Email PHILADELPHIA -- Games away from Great American Ball Park this season have been anything but kind to Reds third baseman Todd Frazier. At home, Frazier is batting .293 with all six of his home runs. On the road, he entered Friday batting .131. Frazier is at a loss to explain the Grand Canyon-like chasm in his home/road splits. "That's a great question," Frazier said before ...

Cancer-causing chemicals and drugs like antibiotics pollute many of America's lakes, rivers and drinking water supplies. Activated carbon filters can remove about 40 percent of carcinogens and antibiotics from these waters. But a tiny solar-powered filter made of two bacterial proteins absorbs more than 50 percent more of the pollutants.
In addition, the filter - developed by a team at the University of Cincinnati - can release the captured antibiotics so they can be reused.
Antibiotics and chemicals enter waterways through sewage and run-off from yards and farms. They can breed resistant bacteria and kill helpful microorganisms, degrading the health of aquatic ecosystems.
The nano-filters, each smaller than the diameter of a human hair, employ a protein used by drug-resistant bacteria to excrete waste, but the researchers have turned it around so it sucks compounds in. Another protein, which responds to sunlight, provides the pumping power for the filter.
Environmental engineer David Wendell, one of the developers, calls the innovation an environmentally friendly and cost-effective way to extract and recover antibiotics from surface waters. He foresees the possibility that, one day, a collection of nano-filters could be anchored downstream from urban or farming areas to capture harmful compounds in water. ...
