Imagine that you are in a meeting with coworkers or at a gathering of friends. You pull out your cell phone to show a presentation or a video on YouTube.
Approximately 5.5 million Latinas suffer from elevated fasting plasma glucose (FPG) but nearly 4 million of them have never been told by a healthcare provider they are at risk for diabetes, pre-diabetes, or are borderline for diabetes.
It turns out kids can understand complex scientific concepts—like natural selection—far beyond what anyone would have expected, a new study suggests.
Children gain a deeper understanding of math and perform better when doing a problem if they use hand gestures, new research shows.
Imitation is the most sincere form of flattery—especially in the predator/prey/poison cycle. In nature, bright colors are basically neon signs that scream, “Don’t eat me!
A growing deer population changes the progression of a forest’s natural future by creating environmental havoc in the soil and disrupting its natural seed banks.
Pre-kindergarten programs benefit children, regardless of family income level or English-language skills, a new study shows.
Using the same digital data employed by marketers to promote food products, researchers have developed a way for health agencies to track consumers’ food choices, neighborhood by neighborhood.
Changes in the sun’s energy output may have led to marked natural climate change in Europe over the last 1000 years, according to researchers.
Alan Turing’s accomplishments in computer science are well known, but lesser known is his impact on biology and chemistry.
A new study verifies that glycans—sugars attached to proteins—may be used to detect ovarian cancer. Creating a diagnostic tool that identifies ovarian cancer early through analysis of a blood sample would be an enormous benefit, researchers say.
The Midcontinent Rift that runs for 2,000 miles from Lake Superior to Oklahoma and Alabama may have formed when rocks now in South America rifted away from North America to create a new ocean.
Researchers are engineering bacteria to make esters—molecules widely used as scents and flavorings, and also as basic feedstock for chemical processes from paints to fuels.
New research shows that providing women with free contraception does not increase the likelihood that they will have sex with multiple partners, as critics of the practice have suggested.
To keep data safe in the cloud, a group of computer scientists suggests doing the Melbourne Shuffle—not the dance move, but the new computer algorithm.
Confronted with a simple mathematical problem, most children ages 4 to 6 can use algebraic concepts intuitively to solve for a hidden variable, say researchers.
Aerosols in the atmosphere tend to weaken the strength of hurricanes and tropical cyclones, contrary to what scientists previously believed.
Researchers have developed a blood test that predicts with more than 90 percent accuracy who is at risk for developing Alzheimer’s disease.
A single drink can affect the driving ability of older drivers, according to new research that suggests it may be time to reassess legal blood alcohol levels.
Researchers have discovered a potentially clean, low-cost way to convert carbon dioxide into methanol, a key ingredient in the production of plastics, adhesives, and solvents, and a promising fuel for transportation.
