    PNG transparency on IE 

    PNG is a very popular image format in websites, especially used to offer image transparency. In combination with JQuery fade effects, it can generate very pretty animations. However, Internet Explorer doesn’t render transparent PNGs as expected leading to a really bad looking result.

    While searching for a solution to make IE to properly support the transparency effects, I came across this nice CSS fix:

    img{
    background: transparent;
    -ms-filter: “progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.gradient(startColorstr=#00FFFFFF,endColorstr=#00FFFFFF)”; /* IE8 */
    filter: progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.gradient(startColorstr=#00FFFFFF,endColorstr=#00FFFFFF);   /* IE6 & 7 */
    zoom: 1;
    }

    This is how a computer is watching us? 

    A little imagination, some software and an innovative product are enough to impress us …

    Seeking the world’s best post-docs 

    Society in Science – The Branco Weiss Fellowship is unique anywhere in the world, since it provides young researchers with a generous personal grant that gives them the freedom to work on whatever topic they choose for a maximum duration of five years.

    The program is coordinated by the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Zurich (ETH); however, the financing can be used at any institution worldwide.

    The fellowship is geared primarily to natural scientists and engineers at an early stage of their post-doctoral studies; however, representatives of other disciplines may also apply if they are able to present an appropriate project.
