It’s no secret that when Facebook hit the net in 2004, it revolutionised the way we share information online. But, cloaked by the fanfare of its arrival, the social network ushered in an ideology viewed by many as infringing upon the rights of its users. These highlight a fundamental flaw not only in Facebook, but in the current zeitgeist online- a boat that’s set to be well and truly rocked….

- Arctic ice sets speed limit for major ocean current October 17, 2018Scientists at MIT have now identified a key mechanism, which they call the 'ice-ocean governor,' that controls how fast the Beaufort Gyre spins and how much fresh water it stores. In a paper published today in Geophysical Research Letters, the researchers report that the Arctic's ice cover essentially sets a speed limit on the gyre's spin […]
- Illinois scientists find stem cell proliferation is controlled directly by nervous system October 17, 2018Somatic stem cells are microscopic workhorses, constantly regenerating cells throughout the body: skin and the lining of the intestine, for example. And to University of Illinois neuroscientists, they represent untapped potential.
- UC researchers recommend universal screening to tackle rise in Hepatitis C October 17, 2018Physicians are encountering a growing number of younger patients who are testing positive for hepatitis C virus (HCV) fueled largely by the opioid crisis impacting communities around the country. That increase and more effective and tolerable drug regimens for HCV infection, means one-time universal screening of all adults for HCV is now cost effective and r […]
- NASA catches the scattered remains of former Tropical Storm Tara October 17, 2018NASA's Aqua satellite captured an infrared image of the remnants of former Tropical Storm Tara after it dissipated near the coast of western Mexico's Jalisco state. Jalisco is a western Mexican state along the Eastern Pacific Ocean.
- Case Western Reserve researchers cure drug-resistant infections without antibiotics October 17, 2018Biochemists, microbiologists, drug discovery experts and infectious disease doctors have teamed up in a new study that shows antibiotics are not always necessary to cure sepsis in mice. Instead of killing causative bacteria with antibiotics, researchers treated infected mice with molecules that block toxin formation in bacteria. Every treated mouse survived. […]
- Study uncovers new link between neonicotinoid pesticide exposure and bumblebee decline October 17, 2018Adding to evidence that pesticide use may be abetting the decline of bumblebee, a new study reveals that daily consumption of even small doses of neonicotinoids reduces the survival of queen and male bees, which are critical to the viability of wild populations. The study also found that exposure to neonicotinoids alters the expression of many bee genes, sug […]

- Substantial changes in air pollution across China during 2015 to 2017 October 17, 2018The first detailed analysis of air pollution trends in China reveals a 20 per cent drop in concentrations of particulate pollution over the last three years (2015-2017).
- Probiotics and antibiotics create a killer combination October 17, 2018MIT researchers have shown that by delivering a combination of antibiotics and alginate-encapsulated probiotics, they can eradicate two strains of drug-resistant bacteria that often infect wounds.
- Novel method for precise, controllable cell deposition onto tissue engineering constructs October 17, 2018A new study presents a novel method of using a microfluidic flow cell array to achieve precise and reproducible control of cell deposition onto engineered tissue constructs to produce tunable cell patterns and generate essential integration zones.
