The Capitol insurrection seems to have caused a superspreader event among lawmakers. Some Republicans refused to mask up.

Drew Angerer/Getty Three members of Congress have tested positive for COVID-19 following the Capitol insurrection. When the mob invaded the building, lawmakers — some of them maskless — had to shelter together in a secure location for hours. Some representatives now consider that lockdown a superspreader event, an instance in which an inf...

Rep. Brad Schneider becomes 3rd member of Congress to test positive for COVID-19 after Capitol siege

Representative Brad Schneider (D-IL). Samuel Corum/Getty Images Rep. Brad Schneider has tested positive for COVID-19, he announced on Tuesday. "Today, I am now in strict isolation, worried that I have risked my wife's health and angry at the selfishness and arrogance of the anti-maskers who put their own contempt and disregard for decency ahead of the health and safety of their colleagues and our staff," Schneider said. The Illinois Democrat is the third member of Congress to contract the ...

Beyond encryption: Protecting consumer privacy while keeping survey results accurate

Data privacy laws require encryption and, in some cases, transforming the original data to 'protected data' before it's released to external parties. But for researchers like Matthew Schneider, Ph.D., of Drexel University's LeBow College of Business, this isn't adequate. Schneider and Dawn Iacobucci, Ph.D., of Vanderbilt University, proposed a new methodology that permanently alters survey datasets to protect consumers' privacy -- when data is shared -- while still preserving a level of reasonab...

Comment on "An excess of massive stars in the local 30 Doradus starburst"

Schneider et al. (Reports, 5 January 2018, p. 69) used an ad hoc statistical method in their calculation of the stellar initial mass function. Adopting an improved approach, we reanalyze their data and determine a power-law exponent of 2.05–0.13+0.14 . Alternative assumptions regarding dataset completeness and the star formation history model can shift the inferred exponent to 2.11–0.17+0.19 and 2.15–0.13+0.13 , respectively.

Developing rapid DNA analysis technology

Jim Schneider, professor of chemical engineering at Carnegie Mellon University, recently received a 3-year, $295,000 grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF) to develop new strategies to rapidly separate and analyze long (kilobase) DNA strands, using surfactants rather than polymeric gels. These faster analysis techniques can impact a wide range of genomic DNA analyses, such as genome mapping, where rapid processing of kilobase-length DNA is required. While conventional pulsed-field elec...
