Daytime meals may reduce health risks linked to night shift work
A small clinical trial has found that eating during the nighttime -- like many shift workers do -- can increase glucose levels, while eating only during the daytime might prevent the higher glucose levels now linked with a nocturnal work life.  12/03/2021 03:14 PM

Wraparound care coordination associated with many positive outcomes amongst youth with serious and complex behavioral health needs
A study finds that Wraparound Care Coordination (Wraparound), which has been adopted in states and jurisdictions across the country to help meet the needs of children and adolescents with serious emotional and behavioral disorders, produces more positive outcomes for youth when compared to more common service approaches.  12/03/2021 09:58 AM

Precise new form of brain surgery requires no incisions, scalpels
Researchers have developed a noninvasive way to remove faulty brain circuits that could allow doctors to treat debilitating neurological diseases without the need for conventional brain surgery.  12/03/2021 09:58 AM

Can seven questions determine how wise you are?
Researchers report that an abbreviated, seven-item scale can help determine with high validity a person's level of wisdom, a potentially modifiable personality trait that has been shown to have a strong association to well-being.  12/03/2021 08:15 AM

Gene-editing used to create single sex mice litters, 100% efficiency
Scientists have used gene editing technology to create female-only and male-only mice litters with 100% efficiency.  12/03/2021 08:15 AM

Whether people inform themselves or remain ignorant is due to three factors
People choose whether to seek or avoid information about their health, finances and personal traits based on how they think it will make them feel, how useful it is, and if it relates to things they think about often, finds a new study.  12/03/2021 08:15 AM

Elevated heart rate linked to increased risk of dementia
Having an elevated resting heart rate in old age may be an independent risk factor of dementia, according to a new study. Since resting heart rate is easy to measure and can be lowered through exercise or medical treatment, the researchers believe that it may help to identify people with higher dementia risk for early intervention.  12/03/2021 08:15 AM

Combined heat and power as a platform for clean energy systems
The state of Georgia could dramatically reduce its greenhouse gas emissions, while creating new jobs and a healthier public, if more of its energy-intensive industries and commercial buildings were to utilize combined heat and power (CHP), according to the latest research.  12/02/2021 07:11 PM

Wild blue wonder: X-ray beam explores food color protein
A natural food colorant called phycocyanin provides a fun, vivid blue in soft drinks, but it is unstable on grocery shelves. A synchrotron is helping to steady it.  12/02/2021 07:11 PM

Damaged telomeres in the elderly may increase susceptibility to SARS-CoV-2
DNA damage signaling induced by aging telomeres increases the expression of ACE2, the human SARS-CoV-2 cell receptor, scientists report.  12/02/2021 07:11 PM

How statistics can aid in the fight against misinformation
Mathematicians created a statistical model that can be used to detect misinformation in social posts.  12/02/2021 04:21 PM

Most dog breeds highly inbred
The majority of dog breeds are highly inbred, contributing to an increase in disease and health care costs throughout their lifespan, according to new research.  12/02/2021 04:21 PM

Researchers attacking menacing ‘superbug’
Scientists around the world have been working in earnest to improve understanding of an increasingly virulent superbug, Clostridium difficile. The highly contagious hospital-acquired pathogen, designated by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention as one of the five most urgent threats to the U.S. healthcare system, causes more than 500,000 infections and 29,000 deaths each year at a total societal cost exceeding $5 billion.  12/02/2021 04:21 PM

Twisting elusive quantum particles with a quantum computer
While the number of qubits and the stability of quantum states are still limiting current quantum computing devices, there are questions where these processors are already able to leverage their enormous computing power. Scientists used a quantum processor to simulate the ground state of a so-called toric code Hamiltonian -- an archetypical model system in modern condensed matter physics, which was originally proposed in the context of quantum error correction.  12/02/2021 03:39 PM

Forty percent of North Atlantic right whale population using Gulf of Saint Lawrence as seasonal habitat
A new study confirms that the Gulf of St. Lawrence is an important habitat for a large proportion of the endangered North Atlantic right whale population.  12/02/2021 03:39 PM

Another reason why batteries can’t charge in minutes
Researchers find new issue complicating fast charging.  12/02/2021 03:39 PM

Novel 3D printing technique to engineer biofilms
Biologists are studying how engineered biofilms closely mimic natural ones. Their research may aid in developing drugs to fight the negative effects of these microorganisms that adhere to surfaces.  12/02/2021 02:16 PM

Shining new light on elusive flying bats
How can we understand the activity of wild bats? Mostly soundless, flying in the dark, bats feed at night and evade our senses. Now, an international research team has developed a new non-invasive method 'bat point counts' by combining modern sensing technologies -- thermal, ultrasonic and near-infrared -- to detect, identify and count all bats flying around in a certain range.  12/02/2021 02:16 PM

Stellar cocoon with organic molecules at the edge of our galaxy
Astronomers have detected a newborn star and the surrounding cocoon of complex organic molecules at the edge of our Galaxy, which is known as the extreme outer Galaxy. The observations with the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array reveal the hidden chemical complexity of our Universe.  12/02/2021 02:16 PM

Stemming the tide of invasive weeds with herbicide capsules
An innovative herbicide delivery system could revolutionize the way agricultural and environmental managers battle invasive weeds.  12/02/2021 02:15 PM
