Researchers from Cornell University have worked out how to track Twitter users' locations — even when they have location services disabled. A paper from Ryan Compton, David Jurgens and David Allen explains a new method for tracking the location of Twitter users to around 6km based on who they interact with. Show More Summary
Dr. Cornel West has cancelled a high-profile lecture at the University of Illinois at Urbana–Champaign in support of a boycott of the university over the firing of Professor Steven Salaita. In a statement West said, “My change of mind in regard to my cancellation of my lecture constitutes a line in the sand I could not cross,. Show More Summary
Thanks to Cornell University researchers, we can now simulate the spread of a zombie disease outbreak. And thanks to their new zombie apocalypse simulator, we can confirm what we already knew: Stay out of cities if you don't want toShow More Summary
President Barack Obama wants Americans to dig deeper into our pockets to expand college education. Let’s update college indoctrination done in the name of education. Cornell University assistant professor Russell
For the first time in 90 years, researchers have conducted a thorough study measuring the fleas and lice crawling around on the backs of New York City rats. The joint Cornell and Columbia University study, published yesterday in theShow More Summary
Move over Europa, there's another moon out to claim the title of first place we'll discover extraterrestrial life. New research from Cornell University finds that alien microbes could, just maybe, eek it out on Saturn's largest moon, Titan. But these critters wouldn't be like anything we've ever seen before—not even close. Read more...
Researchers at Cornell University have come up with "the first concrete blueprint of life not as we know it."
Researchers from Cornell University, Ithaca, New York modeled a new type of life form that depends on methane for its survival. The theorized anaerobic life form, which is capable of performing reproduction and metabolism in a manner similar to that of life on earth, indicates that life is capable...
Where should you flee when the inevitable zombie apocalypse pops off? A group of statistical mechanics students at Cornell University did the legwork and came up with a pretty appealing answer, since it happens to be a place we'd like to visit anyway: the Rocky Mountains. Read more...
A new type of methane-based, oxygen-free life form that can metabolize and reproduce similar to life on Earth has been modeled by a team of Cornell University researchers. Taking a simultaneously imaginative and rigidly scientific view, chemical engineers and astronomers...

A team of Cornell University researchers focusing on a fictional zombie outbreak as an approach to disease modeling suggests heading for the hills, in the Rockies, to save your brains from the undead. Reading World War Z, an oral history...Show More Summary
Cornell University study says chances of surviving zombie outbreak depends largely on location, but "we are largely doomed"
Where is the best place to hide from zombies during a zombie apocalypse? Cornell University researchers believe they have figured out the answer, but also admit the human race would likely still be doomed. If a zombie apocalypse happens, rush as quickly as you can to the Rocky Mountains, according to the Cornell University researches. Show More Summary
If you’re a Maker Pro—a tinkerer interested in going to the next level by bringing an invention to market—consider entering your design in the Pitch Your Prototype Challenge, a collaboration between Make: and Cornell University with the goal of digging up promising prototypes from the Maker community.

During a speech at Cornell University earlier this week, MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry said she hopes Trayvon Martin "whooped the sht out of' George Zimmerman during the fatal confrontation that led to Martin's death in 2012.
If a zombie outbreak were to strike US shores, East Coasters should head west ASAP. That recommendation comes by way of Cornell University researchers, who have modeled the statistical mechanics of, yes, zombies and will present their findings at a meeting of the American Physical Society on March 5 in...
