To a mantis shrimp, walking away from a fight doesn't mean being a wimp. It means recognizing who they're up against and knowing when to bail rather than drag out a doomed battle, Duke University researchers say.

When the mob was baying for blood, one man stood up. That's how it was for Drefyus and how it was for the Duke lacrosse team.
(Duke University) A new drone-enabled population survey -- the first ever on sea turtles -- shows that larger-than-anticipated numbers of turtles aggregate in waters off Costa Rica's Ostional National Wildlife Refuge. Scientists from Duke and UNC-Chapel Hill estimate turtle densities may reach up to 2,086 animals per square kilometer. Show More Summary
By Reid Carlson on SwimSwam Division II powerhouse Queens University of Charlotte took on Duke as each team returned to competition for the first time in 2018. Read the full story on SwimSwam: Duke and DII Queens University of Charlotte Split First Dual of 2018
I believe the NCAA should hold an investigation to the type of classes that student-athletes are taking at Duke University. For the second time in less than a year, a former player at Duke has said something controversial and this time it’s J.J. Redick. The Philadelphia 76ers guard recently sat down with Boston Celtics guard Kyrie Irving […]
(Duke University) Dengue virus slowly takes over the endoplasmic reticulum, the production site for a subset of host proteins, and steers clear of the cytosol, the fluid-filled space where the majority of host cellular proteins are synthesized. Its viral RNA template is translated into protein in such an inefficient, lackadaisical manner that it doesn't trip alarms.
(Duke University) Researchers have discovered the atomic mechanisms that give the unusual material yttrium manganite its rare magnetic and electric properties. All it took was ricocheting neutrons off the atoms of a sample of the material heated to 3,000 degrees Fahrenheit.
Back in 2015, a team at Duke University made a world-first breakthrough, growing functioning human muscle tissue in a laboratory using cells from muscle biopsies called myogenic precursors. Now the research has leapt forward with working...Show More Summary
(Duke University) Women tend to live longer than men almost everywhere worldwide. Now, three centuries of data show that women don't just outlive men in normal times: They're more likely to survive even in the worst of circumstances, such as famines and epidemics. Show More Summary
(Duke University) Duke engineers have grown the first functioning human muscle from non-muscle cells -- skin cells reverted to their primordial stem cell state. The ability to start from cellular scratch using non-muscle tissue willShow More Summary
(Duke University Medical Center) Duke Health researchers found players with higher scores on computer-based vision and motor tasks had better on-base percentages, more walks and fewer strikeouts -- collectively referred to as plate discipline -- compared to their peers.
A few months back, Eddy Cue visited Duke University to meet with Duke Technology Scholar. Cue, a Duke alum himself, took the opportunity to discuss what can be done to give women the same opportunities as men in technology fields, as...Show More Summary
(Duke University) Never trust anyone who is rude to a waiter, advice columnists say. But while humans generally prefer individuals who are nice to others, a Duke University study finds bonobos are more attracted to jerks. The fact that...Show More Summary
Gotham City’s newest bat-signal operates in the daytime. “Batman and the Signal,” a new three-issue miniseries starring Duke Thomas, a popular teenage character in Batman comics who flirted with the mantle of Robin the Boy Wonder before being given the vigilante suit of the Signal, debuts Wednesday in print and digitally from DC Comics. Scott […]
Materials scientists at Duke University have developed a method to create hybrid thin-film materials that would otherwise be difficult or impossible to make. The technique could be the gateway to new generations of solar cells, light-emitting diodes and photodetectors.
(Duke University) Researchers use lasers to blast solutions containing delicate organic compounds to grow new types of crystals for solar cells, light-emitting diodes and photodetectors.
Researchers at Duke University have discovered a way to enhance the effectiveness and safety of sonogenetics or ultrasonic modulation, emerging techniques that use sound waves to control the behavior of individual neurons or to promote tissue growth and wound healing in other cells.
Duke University and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill are legendary sports rivals, but a federal antitrust complaint says there's one area where the elite institutions have agreed … Click to Continue »
