Patterns of episodes of diverticulitis before surgery, and factors associated with earlier interventions using inpatient, outpatient, and antibiotic prescription claims, have all been examined by a group of researchers.
Researchers examined whether gastric bypass surgery is equally effective in reducing mortality in groups undergoing surgery at different ages. Bariatric surgery is effective in reducing all-cause and cause-specific long-term mortality. Whether the long-term mortality benefit of surgery applies to all ages at which surgery is performed is not known.
The team researched a quasi-random assignment of 84 ACHIEVEability participants to their housing units. Investigators evaluated whether micro-neighborhood environments - the group of city blocks immediately surrounding housing units - affected participants' progress in achieving college credits.

A new record for the fastest ever data rate for digital information has been set by UCL researchers in the Optical Networks Group. They achieved a rate of 1.125 Tb/s as part of research on the capacity limits of optical transmission systems, designed to address the growing demand for fast data rates. read more
Moral-watching, all-knowing, punitive gods might have helped human societies grow far beyond small, close-knit groups, a new study shows. Researchers who ran an experiment with a total of 591 people in eight different small-scale societies around the world found that people who believed their deity...
