Worlds First Biosolar Leaf To Take On London Air Pollution

An experimental technology to purify the air will be rolled out in London, it has been announced, in a “world first” way to tackle pollution.

With that in mind, Imperial College London has teamed up with biochemical tech startup Arborea …

This Image Of What Human Milk Ducts Look Like Is Blowing Peoples Minds

That there is a boob on Twitter might not sound like breaking news, but an image of the human mammary glands has gone viral over the past 24 hours, and it’s unlikely you’ve ever seen a pair of breasts from this perspective before. The picture shows a diagram of the female muscle system, and includes the flower-like arrangement of milk ducts that are found beneath the nipples. And given that nothing causes excitement quite like a human breast, Twitter users have been left suitably scandalized by this wonderfully natural – yet rarely seen – sight. – As several commenters have pointed out, most science textbooks only show the male muscular system, which is why this image seems so unfamiliar and striking. – …

Hillary Clinton: Congress must be ‘deliberate, fair and fearless’ in addressing Mueller report

(CNN)Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton urged Congress to thoroughly and fairly follow up on the Mueller report — while simultaneously advancing non-Mueller-related legislation central to Democrats’ platform — in a Washington Post op-ed published Wednesday. This should take the form of Congress holding “substantive hearings that build on the Mueller report and fill in its gaps” featuring key players such as Mueller and former White House counsel Don McGahn, Clinton added. On Tuesday, CNN reported that the White House may try to keep McGahn from complying with a subpoena to testify before the House Judiciary Committee. Later that day, Trump said that he did not wants current or former aides talking to House investigators because “there is no reason …

Stress-busting dogs on university staff

Image caption The dogs have been given their own identity cards “It’s amazing and we’re very keen to continue and expand what we’re doing. Image caption There are five canine assistants, with another three to join the staff Last month, University of Buckingham vice-chancellor Sir Anthony Seldon backed the use of dogs as a way of reducing stress in schools and universities. “The quickest and biggest hit that we can make to improve mental health in our schools and to make them feel safe for children is to have at least one dog in every single school in the country,” said Sir Anthony.

Obesity and depression linked in children

The researchers analysed information on more than 17,000 children born in the UK between 2000 and 2002, using statistical modelling to measure the link between obesity and emotional problems. They had information on children’s height and weight (BMI) as well as reports on their emotional problems, provided by their parents, at ages three, five, seven, 11 and 14 years old. From the age of seven, the study found obesity and emotional problems were closely linked. But the link wasn’t apparent in younger children. ‘Not as simple as eating less’ Dr Charlotte Hardman, senior psychology lecturer at the University of Liverpool, said the findings showed obesity and emotional problems were likely to develop hand-in-hand in childhood.

One Blood Type In Particular Has A Protective Effect Against Severe Malaria

Sometimes it is the tiniest of buggers that deal the largest of blows. This is none more true than for the wispy mosquito – we’ve tried to smash them, poison them, de-fertilize them, and yet, they still live to bite another day. They are the ultimate vectors of disease and destruction, killing more humans than humans themselves in 2013. Perhaps to deal with mosquitos then, we first have to look at ourselves and learn what makes us so vulnerable to their seed-sized bodies. A new meta-analysis of blood type on susceptibility to severe malaria does just that, confirming the notion that those with O type blood are more protected from severe, fatal malaria than other blood types. Unfortunately, those of you with blood …
