New Non-Invasive Technique Could Revolutionize the Imaging of Metastatic Cancer

In preclinical animal models of metastatic prostate cancer, scientists at VCU Massey Cancer Center and Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions have developed a new molecular imaging approach that could revolutionize doctors' ability to see tumors that have metastasized to other sites in the body, including the bones.

Scripps Research Institute Chemists Modify Antibiotic to Vanquish Resistant Bacteria

Scientists at The Scripps Research Institute (TSRI) have devised a new antibiotic based on vancomycin that is powerfully effective against vancomycin-resistant strains of MRSA and other disease-causing bacteria.

Basal Eurasians are a Third ANcestral Group to Modern Europeans, Related to Ancestral Native Americans

New studies of ancient DNA are shifting scientists' ideas of how groups of people migrated across the globe and interacted with one another thousands of years ago. By comparing nine ancient genomes to those of modern humans, Howard Hughes...Show More Summary

you and your problems just got alot smaller. –Ben Earth’s address redefined with new galaxy map For the first time, scientists have figured out where our Milky Way galaxy sits in relation to the 100,000 other galaxies within our newly discovered home supercluster, called Laniakea. http://www.sciencealert.com.au/news/20140409-26124-2.html

The StudentLife app wants to track stress… by monitoring everything

Computer scientists have built an app that monitors students’ wellbeing by using their phone to measure as many variables as possible, from mood to sleep quality to how sociable they are. As New Scientist reports, the aim isn’t to totally invade their privacy, but to identify and help people at risk of dropping out for non-academic reasons. Show More Summary

Rooting out horse-meat fraud in the wake of a recent food scandal

As the United Kingdom forms a new crime unit designed to fight food fraud — in response to an uproar last year over horse meat being passed off as beef — scientists from Germany are reporting a technique for detecting meat adulteration. Show More Summary

A new urine test can detect cervical cancer

A new urine test can detect HPV, the virus that causes cervical cancer, according to New Scientist. For women who avoid smear tests like the plague, this could be a useful, non-invasive first step in screening. It might also be useful in developing countries where it’s far easier to test a sample than look at cells under a microscope. Show More Summary

Nanoribbon film keeps glass ice-free

Scientists who created a deicing film for radar domes have now refined the technology to work as a transparent coating for glass. The new work could keep glass surfaces from windshields to skyscrapers free of ice and fog while retaining their transparency to radio frequencies (RF).

Study on global carbon cycle may require reappraisal of climate events in Earth's history

A recent study of the global carbon cycle offers a new perspective of Earth's climate records through time. Scientists suggest that one of the current methods for interpreting ancient changes in the concentration of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere and oceans may need to be re-evaluated.

Reducing pesticides, adding sound vibrations and boosting harvests

Scientists are experimenting with sound vibrations to replace pesticides. Adapting different eco-friendly methods they are able to boost harvests and open up a new chapter in sustainable farming.

Scientists create therapy-grade stem cells using new cocktail to reprogram adult cells

Researchers have developed a new cocktail that's highly effective at coaxing adult cells to become quality pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs). Using a new combination of reprogramming factors, they produced a higher quality result than the traditional formula. The new mix delivers fewer colonies of iPSCs, but 80% of them pass the toughest pluripotency test.
