Laos is 'world's fastest growing' ivory market

An animal protection group says Laos urgently needs to take steps to tackle this growing problem.

Summer could be one long heatwave if planet hits 2 degrees Celsius

New paper highlighting how heatwaves will change with every degree of global warming up to 5 degrees C. It finds tropical summers may be one continuous heatwave at 2 degrees C.

Saber-toothed kittens may have been born with thicker bones than other contemporary cats

Saber-toothed kittens may have been born with thicker bones compared to other contemporary cats, but they have a similar pattern of bone development, according to a new study.

Speedy urine test for amphetamines sends results via app

Researchers have developed a wireless sensor and a smartphone app that can detect the presence of speed in a drop of human urine in seconds. The prototype device is also portable enough to be worn as a bracelet, has unprecedented sensitivity for amphetamines with low risk for false-positive results, and costs about $50 to produce.

For boys at risk of psychopathy, laughter isn't so contagious

For most people, laughter is highly contagious. It's nearly impossible to hear or see someone laughing and not feel the urge to join in. But researchers have new evidence to show that boys at risk of developing psychopathy when they become adults don't have that same urge.

Incurable childhood brain tumors split into 10 new diseases

Scientists have found that deadly childhood brain tumors are actually 10 different diseases that should each be diagnosed and treated based on their specific genetic faults. The major new study has important implications for treatment, since personalizing care for each type of brain tumor is likely to be much more effective than grouping them all together as one.

How brain develops before birth is tightly controlled by RNA modification

A chemical tag added to RNA during embryonic development regulates how the early brain grows. When this development goes awry, problems happen and may cause psychiatric disorders in people.

How do we sense moonlight? Daylight? There's a cell for that

Neuroscientists describe an unexpected way that we sense the overall degree of illumination in our environment. They found that neurons in the retina of the eye divvy up the job, with particular neurons tuned to different ranges of light intensity.

Uncovering why psoriasis recurs

New research helps address a longstanding question about the inflammatory skin condition psoriasis: Why do skin lesions that have resolved with therapy recur in the same locations after a patient stops using topical steroids?

Necessity is indeed mother of invention, regardless of resources, study shows

People who live in extremely resource poor environments can also be highly innovative in a different way and provide benefits to a range of people through creative problem solving, research shows.

Zinc can halt the growth of cancer cells, study says

Zinc supplements can significantly inhibit the proliferation of esophageal cancer cells, according to a new study.

Fluorine-containing molecules from cell cultures

Natural organic compounds that contain fluorine are rare because living organisms -- with a few exceptions -- do not produce them. Scientists have now genetically engineered a microbial host for organofluorine metabolism, allowing it to produce a fluoridated intermediate known as a diketide. As reported, the diketide could then be used as a monomer for the in vivo production of fluorinated bioplastics.

Nearly one in six new HIV diagnoses in Europe are among people over 50

A new study showed that while the rate of newly reported HIV cases in Europe remained steady in younger people between 2004 and 2015, it increased by 2 percent each year overall in older people. With around 30,000 newly diagnosed HIV infections reported each year over the last decade, the HIV epidemic remains a significant public health problem in the 31 countries of the European Union and European Economic Area.

Highly virulent bacterium causes rampant caries in some children

Researchers have made a novel discovery connecting highly variant types of the caries bacterium Streptococcus mutans and their adhesive function to children with rampant caries and increased risk of dental caries.

Popping bubbles: Surfactants have surprising effect on nanobubble stability

The stability of nanobubbles is well understood, but the mechanisms causing their eventual destabilization are still in question. Using molecular dynamics simulations, researchers explored the effect of surfactants -- components that lower surface tension -- on the stabilization of nanobubbles.

Study provides first estimate of total US population with felony convictions

New research on the growth in the scope and scale of felony convictions finds that, as of 2010, 3 percent of the total US population and 15 percent of the African-American male population have served time in prison. People with felony convictions more broadly account for 8 percent of the overall population and 33 percent of the African-American male population.

In people with OCD, actions are at odds with beliefs

The repeated behaviors that characterize obsessive-compulsive disorder are a manifestation of an underlying brain dysfunction that is not yet well understood. Now, scientists report the use of a mathematical model that they say will help them get at the root of what causes OCD. They find that people with OCD develop an internal, accurate sense of how things work but do not use it to guide behavior.

The American Association of Critical-Care Nurses (AACN) announces the recipients of its annual research grants and invites clinicians and researchers to submit projects by Nov. 1, 2017, for the next application cycle, with total available funding of $160,000.

National Eye Institute Awards Prize for 'Retina in a Dish' Competition

Newswise imageA proposal to create a living model of the human retina, the light-sensitive tissue at the back of the eye, won $90,000 in the National Eye Institute (NEI) 3-D Retina Organoid Challenge (3-D ROC). The NEI 3-D ROC is an initiative that seeks to design human retinas from stem cells. Erin Lavik, Sc.D., at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County, led the awarded team. The NEI is part of the National Institutes of Health.

Companies Are Once Again Storing Data On Tape, Just in Case

An anonymous reader shares a report: To stay up to date in the battle against hackers, some companies are turning to a 1950s technology. Storing data on tape seems impossibly inconvenient in an age of easy-access cloud computing. But that is the big security advantage of this vintage technology, since hackers have no way to get at the information. The federal government, financial-services firms, health insurers and other regulated industries still keep tape as a backup to digital records. Now a range of other companies are returning to tape as hackers get smarter about penetrating defenses -- and do much more damage when they do get in. Rob Pritchard, founder of the Cyber Security Expert consulting firm and associate fellow at the Royal United Services Institute think tank, has noticed the steady resurgence of tape as part of best-practice backup strategies. "Companies of all sizes must be able to restore data quickly if needed," he says, "but also have a robust, slower-time, recovery mechanism should the worst happen." Mr. Pritchard, who works with a range of organizations to improve corporate cybersecurity practices, says: "A good backup strategy will have multiple layers.
