Atoms and Magnets--fixed link ( i hope)

Well this is very neat... adjusting atom structure to adjust magnetic properties of alloys.

Of course this part gets me haha

"Unfortunately the researchers figured out how to weaken,
rather than strengthen, an existing alloy by playing with its atomic structure.
But they may have peeked behind the curtain of an important branch of materials science.
As supplies of rare earth elements grow rarer,
researchers are struggling to find new solutions to increase magnetism in
various materials to make up for potentially dwindling supplies of rare earth magnets."

I didn't even know we were running out of magnets....

You BOOGLED the link. I get a "Oops we're terribly sorry, the page you're looking for cannot be found. Don't worry, heres a few tips for finding it" followed by a search box and then a plethora of words listed by Page, Month and Category.

Yes I am making a new word up. Boogle. Like Google, but for when you fail to provide an accurate link
-- wait, come to think of it, Google already does that... umm.. Ok, it's for when you provide a Faulty link. yeah.

I don't know about depleting the earths magnetic energies but I am fascinated with magnets and I always thought it would be great fun to create a giant collection of magnets and keep adding to it until the force becomes so great that objects around it can not resist its magnetic pull until it becomes a force all of it's own.
