Proposed cuts to US Malaria Initiative could mean millions more malaria cases
Posted on Tuesday November 21, 2017

Cutting the budget of the President's Malaria Initiative (PMI) by 44 percent, as the US Congress has proposed, would lead to an estimated 67 million additional cases of malaria over the next four years, according to a mathematical model.

Second HIV test helps prevent incorrect HIV diagnosis in infants
Posted on Tuesday November 21, 2017

Confirmatory HIV testing can substantially reduce the number of infants in South Africa who may be falsely diagnosed as HIV-infected and started on unneeded treatment, according to a new study.

Specific tumor environment found that triggers cells to metastasize
Posted on Tuesday November 21, 2017

The environment surrounding a tumor can trigger metastatic behavior in cancer cells, a team of bioengineers and bioinformaticians has discovered. Specifically, when tumor cells are confined in a dense environment, the researchers found that they turn on a specific set of genes and begin to form structures that resemble blood vessels.

Correctly used neonics do not adversely affect honeybee colonies, new research finds
Posted on Tuesday November 21, 2017

Amid mounting controversy over use of neonicotinoids and declining bee population, a new analysis of previously unpublished studies and reports commissioned by agri-chemical companies Bayer and Syngenta -- as well as published papers from the scientific literature -- shows no significant ill effects on honeybee colonies from three common insecticides made by the companies.

New tool can help job searchers better position themselves in market

A novel method, developed by an economist has been created to evaluate a worker's skillset and determine its impact on wages.

Nano-watch has steady hands
Posted on Tuesday November 21, 2017

A new nanomechanical hand shows the time of an electronic clock, by spinning a tiny cylinder using light. A silicon nanorod, less than a thousandth of a millimetre long, can be trapped in thin air using focused laser beams, and spun to follow the ticking of a clock, losing only one-millionth of a second over four days.

How disposable diapers can improve measurements of tumor growth
Posted on Tuesday November 21, 2017

In pursuit of a better imaging phantom for improved tumor measurements, scientists hit upon an effective but unconventional solution: injecting water into disposable diapers.

Turtles and technology advance understanding of lung abnormality
Posted on Tuesday November 21, 2017

A study of an unusual snapping turtle with one lung found shared characteristics with humans born with one lung who survive beyond infancy. New digital 3-D anatomical models made the detailed research possible.

How to get sprayed metal coatings to stick
Posted on Tuesday November 21, 2017

New research reveals the best way to make metal particles stick to a surface in a spray-coating process. Surprisingly, melting hurts rather than helps.

New study points the way to therapy for rare cancer that targets the young
Posted on Tuesday November 21, 2017

Scientists have engineered a mouse model to study a rare and often-fatal form of liver cancer. They've used it to clarify what drives these tumors at the molecular level, and discover new drug concepts.

PTSD: An Overlooked Consequence of a Cancer Diagnosis
Posted on Tuesday November 21, 2017

Roughly one in five cancer patients struggle with post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) in the aftermath of diagnosis and treatment. A recent study from Malaysia indicates that PTSD is a fairly common result of the long and difficult process of living with and treating cancer. Though most commonly associated with soldiers returning from war, PTSD can result from many different forms of trauma. The disorder can sometimes go unnoticed, or be misdiagnosed, causing those suffering to endure p

Posted on Tuesday November 21, 2017

The cloud formations in the photograph above, and those to follow, may look otherworldly, and maybe even a bit ominous. But they are perfectly benign (except when they herald an approaching storm), and are well known to meteorologists. The scientific name for these cloud formations is "altocumulus standing lenticularus.' But from here on out, I'll just refer to them lenticular clouds. If you've never seen lenticular clouds like these before, whether in pictures or in person, you might

The Opioid Epidemic Hits Some Generations Harder Than Others
Posted on Tuesday November 21, 2017

As the opioid epidemic rages in the U.S., the number of overdose deaths has nearly quadrupled since 1999. And according to a new study, baby boomers and millennials are at significantly higher risk. Researchers from Columbia University analyzed drug overdose deaths in the United States between 1999-2014, the most recent year for which data was available. (The team selected 1999 as the start date due to changes in drug classification that would have made reconciling pre- and post-1999 da

High-Ranking Male Primates Keep Wafting Their Sex Stink at Females, Who Hate It
Posted on Tuesday November 21, 2017

Researchers call it "stink flirting." A male ring-tailed lemur rubs his signature scent onto his long, fluffy tail, then waves it over his head in the direction of a nearby female. Males seem to intend this gesture as a sexual overture. But it often gets them into fights—with lemurs of both sexes. In fact, scientists aren't sure stink flirting helps male lemurs at all. Smell is an important communication tool for ring-tailed lemurs (Lemur catta). Both males and females have scent glan

Small Eruption at Indonesia's Agung After Weeks of Unrest
Posted on Tuesday November 21, 2017

After weeks of unrest that has waxed and waned, Agung in Indonesia finally produced an explosive eruption today. This blast wasn't anything close to the large blast that some media organizations have been claiming, but rather a relatively small eruption (see below) that was driven by water flashing to steam at the summit crater. pic.twitter.com/gJYqXhdaA9 — Ali (@Ali_Di_Bali) November 21, 2017 Drone footage (below) taken not long after this explosive eruption shows the steaming crater.

Iceland's Largest Volcano Is Getting Restless
Posted on Tuesday November 21, 2017

For being an island in the North Atlantic, Iceland has a lot of volcanoes. Some of them generate a lot of anxiety when they have the inevitable rumbles. An earthquake swarm at Katla or Hekla causes all sorts of media alarms to go off, which is surprising considering the last three eruptions in Iceland came from Barðarbunga (well, the Holuhraun field, in 2014-15), Grímsvötn (in 2011) and Eyjafjallajökull (in 2010). There is plenty of volcanic unrest in Iceland to spread around in this geol

The NOAA-20 satellite is now circling the globe 14 times a day, orbiting from pole to pole at about 520 miles above the surface. It is equipped w

First-Known Interstellar Object Looks...Pretty Weird
Posted on Monday November 20, 2017

Scientists now have an idea of what the first recorded extra-solar asteroid looked like. The hunk of rock of that whipped through the solar system in October looks like no other asteroid we've seen before, they say, long and thin like a javelin and colored red from millions of years of accumulated radiation exposure. The coloration wasn't surprising, but the shape was, say astronomers from the European Southern Observatory. Most objects astronomers observe in our solar system are roughly

How Algorithms Are Becoming YouTube Stars

Machines are becoming increasingly adept at creating content. Whether it be news articles, poetry, or visual art, computers are learning how to mimic human creativity in novel — and sometimes disturbing — ways. Text-based content is fairly easy for computers to generate. Anyone who has used a smartphone to text knows that operating systems are pretty savvy in predicting speech patterns. But videos and other visual mediums are a little more challenging — not only does a computer need to pr

Could a Change in the Earth's Spin Lead to More Earthquakes Next Year?
Posted on Sunday November 19, 2017

If you've seen the news over the weekend, you might have seen a bevy of article proclaiming that 2018 will see a big surge in M7+ earthquakes. My first reaction was "ugh" and the next was "sigh". I thought that yet again the media was being duped by crackpots trying to sell some snake oil prediction scheme. However, that first pass may have been misguided, but old habits die hard. Instead, this dramatic statement came from a paper in Geophysical Research Letters and an abstract from the G

Tesla's Electric Semi Shows Promise—But Will it Deliver?
Posted on Friday November 17, 2017

Elon Musk finally revealed the Tesla Semi, an electric big-rig he professes will outstrip the diesel fleets that have dominated American freight for decades. The Tesla CEO flaunted his latest creation and its “BAMF performance”—it’s a technical term, he says—at an unveiling ceremony Thursday night in Hawthorne, CA. He outlined the semi’s specs, which include parlor tricks like going from 0-60 mph in 5 seconds and potentially industry-upending figures for driving range and cost of operatio

We Should Toss That $450M da Vinci into a Particle Accelerator
Posted on Friday November 17, 2017

A portrait of the world’s most recognizable person, Jesus Christ, painted by an icon whose renown doesn’t trail too far behind, Leonardo da Vinci, on Wednesday sold at auction for $450.3 million, setting a new record for artistic largesse. Only a handful of authentic da Vinci paintings exist today, and Salvator Mundi is the only one that could still be purchased by a deep-pocketed collector. Christie’s Auction House billed the work as “The Last da Vinci,” “the holy grail of our business.”

Antarctic Fossils Reveal the Continent's Lush Past
Posted on Friday November 17, 2017

Antarctica, a land of near-lunar desolation and conditions so bleak few plants or animals dare stay, was once covered with a blanket of lush greenery. The conception of the ice-coated continent as a forested Eden emerged in the early 1900s when Robert Falcon Scott, a British explorer, found plant fossils during an expedition to the South Pole. Now, researchers working in the Trans-Antarctic mountains, where they may be the first to tread for hundreds of millions of years, are digging deep

Robot Nails Backflip Better Than Most Gymnasts
Posted on Friday November 17, 2017

The Atlas bipedal robot made by Boston Dynamics just showed off its new move: a perfectly executed backflip. And the humanoid robot stuck its landing better than most professional gymnasts—no hesitation, no wobble, nothing. Boston Dynamics, which was acquired by Alphabet (Google's parent company) in 2013 and then sold this year, released the new video on Thursday. Check out the impressive backflip below. https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=20&v=fRj34o4hN4I This is the first

Darwin Was Right About Bird Vomit
Posted on Friday November 17, 2017

Charles Darwin was a busy man. When he wasn’t advancing his groundbreaking theory of evolution by natural selection, he could be found carefully analyzing the contents of bird vomit and droppings. No, this wasn't an obscure hobby. He was getting his hands dirty to stack up more evidence to support one of his many hypotheses. He suspected that some birds had an unusual way of transporting plants to new locations. “Freshwater fish, I find, eat seeds of many land and water plants; fish ar

Astronauts Didn't Sleep So Well on the Moon
Posted on Friday November 17, 2017

The habitable volume of the Apollo lunar module was just 160 cubic feet. That might sound like a lot for two men, but when you consider that it was filled with the bulky lunar EVA suits and life support systems, rocks collected from the surface, and all the other things needed for a lunar stay it wasn’t exactly roomy. Add the noises of the environmental control system and the light streaming in the window and it might be the least restful place for a nap. [embed]https://www.youtube.com/wa

Flashback Friday: Men with beards are more likely to be sexist.
Posted on Friday November 17, 2017

Despite the recent popularity of beards, facial hair can be controversial: as we've previously shown, it makes men less likely to get hired and more likely to be seen as guilty by a jury. Well, all you beard-haters out there, here's some more ammunition for you. In this study, researchers surveyed men from the USA and India on both their facial hair and their attitudes towards women. They found that men with beards were more likely to be sexist, and they hypothesized that men who have sexist
