Another important reason to stay fit: your independence

Everyone suffers from sarcopenia: the loss of muscle mass and strength due to age. While there are numerous benefits to exercise, an important one is remaining independent well into old age. Weightlifting is essential for keeping muscle mass and strength as the decades go by. The myriad benefits of exercise are well-documented. From physical strength and emotional control, to warding off cognitive disease, weight management, and overall life satisfaction, staying fit is demanded by our biology...

Could genomics solve the climate change crisis?

Genomics is the study of genes and their functions. The branch of molecular biology presents the idea that the genome can be manipulated for added resilience against harm.Yale professor and editor Daniel C. Esty argues that genetic modification in nature as a way to improve sustainability should be seriously considered.In the book A Better Planet: Forty Big Ideas for a Sustainable Future, Esty and several authors offer actionable solutions for dealing with greenhouse gases, including genomic in...

'Reaper of death' who fed on other dinosaurs discovered

Scientists in Canada discover a new species of dinosaur.The species is named Thanatotheristes degrootorum, which stands for "Reaper of Death"The dinosaur lived about 79 million years ago. A new dinosaur species was found in Alberta, Canada. Related to Tyrannosaurs, the Thanatotheristes degrootorum is the oldest dinosaur ever found in the country, roaming its lands about 79 millions years ago. The newly-discovered species, the first such find in the last 50 years, shares a lineage with the fea...

These Crows Evolved Into a New Species, Boned the Old Species Too Much, Now Back Where They Started

Hundreds of thousands of years ago, a glacier advanced upon the Pacific Northwest, its ice forming a natural barrier that fractured crows into two populations. These populations began to diverge into two separate species, which ornithologists decided were distinguishable by small differences in body measurements and…Read more...

This cancer treatment gives patients night-vision, and we finally know why

In the early 2000s, it was reported that some cancer patients being treated with chlorin e6 were experiencing enhanced night vision.Using a molecular simulation, researchers discovered that a chlorin e6 injection under infrared light activates vision by changing retinal in the same way that visible light does. Researchers hope that this chemical reaction could one day be harnessed to help treat certain types of blindness and sensitivity to light. In the early 2000s, it was reported that a...

Dad bod & dad brain: how a man's brain changes when he becomes a father

In the first days and weeks of fatherhood, a man's testosterone and cortisol levels decrease and oxytocin, estrogen, and prolactin levels surge, promoting an important bonding experience between a father and his newborn child.One of the most significant changes in a new father's brain is the new neurons that are formed that have been proved to be directly linked to the time spent with their newborn child.This neurogenesis (forming of new neurons in the brain) happens in the areas that are linked...
