Our supportive running shoes might counterintuitively make us more prone to injury, new research suggests

A group of tourists on a walking tour in Argentina. David Silverman/Getty Images Modern shoes are designed with features that make walking and running more comfortable and energetically efficient.  One of those features is a toe spring — the front of the shoe — that curves upward, putting our feet in a perpetually flexed position. But according to a new study, toe springs may weaken our foot muscles over time, which could contribute to injuries like plantar fasciitis. Visit Business Inside...

Residents of a Texas city told not to drink tap water after a brain-eating microbe was found in the water supply

A man holds a glass under a running tap. Getty Images Communities in Texas were warned not to use tap water for anything other than flushing toilets after a rare brain-eating amoeba was found in the public water supply.  The microbe, naegleria fowleri, is found in fresh water and soil, and if it gets up the nose can cause a potentially fatal brain illness.  The advisory was issued after a six-year-old boy died of the illness caused by the microbe.  Late Saturday the notice was lifted, but ...

The aurora borealis didn't cause the Titanic's crash, contrary to a new theory — but it may have affected rescue efforts

A sketch, made by marine artist Willy Stoewer, depicts the Titanic disaster. Bettmann/Getty Images Witnesses saw a bright, long-lasting aurora the night the Titanic sank. A new theory suggests that aurora came from a powerful solar storm, which could have interfered with compasses and contributed to the Titanic's crash. But there was only a small burst of solar storm-like activity that night, so it's probably not the culprit. However, the solar storm could have interfered with radio commun...
