Open economy or tamp down coronavirus infections? It’s not either-or, researchers say

Two strategies that haven’t received much attention in the U.S. — “dividing” and “balancing,” used together and followed closely — could reduce coronavirus transmission about as much as a strict lockdown while maintaining economic activity, said Nishi, an assistant professor of epidemiolog...

Bats can predict the future, JHU researchers discover

They can't tell fortunes and they're useless with the stock market but bats are quite skilled at predicting one thing: where to find dinner. Bats calculate where their prey is headed by building on-the-fly predictive models of target motion from echoes, Johns Hopkins University researchers find. The models are so robust, bats can continue to track prey even when it temporarily vanishes behind echo-blocking obstacles like trees.
