Study: Breastfeeding is recommended during pandemic

Breastfeeding sets babies up for good health across the lifespan. However, the COVID-19 pandemic is causing health-care providers to change the way they support breastfeeding mothers. While many supports have been reduced or eliminated,...
Scientists establish new timeline for ancient magnetic field on Mars

Scientists establish new timeline for ancient magnetic field on Mars

Mars had a global magnetic field much earlier—and much later—in the planet’s history than scientists have previously known. A planet’s global magnetic field arises from what scientists call a dynamo: a flow of molten metal...
Device brings silicon computing power to brain study and prosthetics

Device brings silicon computing power to brain study and prosthetics

Researchers at Stanford University have developed a new device for connecting the brain directly to silicon-based technologies. While brain-machine interface devices already exist -- and are used for prosthetics, disease treatment and brain research...
Study: Bumblebees speed up flowering

Study: Bumblebees speed up flowering

Spring has sprung earlier than ever before this year, accompanied by temperatures more typical of early summertime. Many plants were already in full bloom by mid-?April, about three to four weeks earlier than normal....
Researchers develop precision injection system for plants

Researchers develop precision injection system for plants

While the human world is reeling from one pandemic, there are several ongoing epidemics that affect crops and put global food production at risk. Oranges, olives, and bananas are already under threat in many...
Study: Ozone Treaty Stopped Jet-Stream Drift in Southern Hemisphere

Study: Ozone Treaty Stopped Jet-Stream Drift in Southern Hemisphere

More than ten years ago, climate scientist Lorenzo Polvani and his then postdoctoral fellow Seok-woo Son led a study that found the closing of the ozone hole—then underway as a consequence of the 1987...
Scientists solve structure of ‘inverted’ rhodopsin

Scientists solve structure of ‘inverted’ rhodopsin

Researchers from the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology, working with Spanish, French, and German colleagues, have determined and analyzed the high-resolution structure of a protein from the recently discovered heliorhodopsin family. Microbial rhodopsins...
Study: New Zealand blue whale distribution patterns tied to ocean conditions, prey availability

Study: New Zealand blue whale distribution patterns tied to ocean conditions, prey availability

Oregon State University researchers who recently discovered a population of blue whales in New Zealand are learning more about the links between the whales, their prey and ocean conditions that are changing as the...
Study: Summer forage capabilities of tepary bean and guar in the southern great plains

Study: Summer forage capabilities of tepary bean and guar in the southern great plains

Perennial warm-season grasses do not provide high-quality forage during mid to late-summer, which limits yearling stocker cattle from maintaining high rates of growth in the Southern Great Plains. This shortage has resulted in a...
Scientists find protein that helps cancer cells to survive

Scientists find protein that helps cancer cells to survive

In a new study, researchers from the University of Copenhagen have discovered two important functions of a protein called RTEL1 during cell division. The researchers hope that the new knowledge will help to find...
