‘Rise of Algae’ in Cryogenian Oceans Led to Appearance of First Complex Organisms, Study Says
The rapid rise of marine planktonic algae 659-645 million years ago (Cryogenian period), between the Sturtian and Marinoan ‘snowball Earth’ glaciations, created food webs with more efficient nutrient and energy transfers, driving ecosystems towards larger and increasingly complex organisms, according to new research. The study, published this week in the journal Nature, involved an international team [...]

MUSE Observations of ‘Jellyfish’ Galaxies Reveal New Way to Fuel Supermassive Black Holes
An international research team, led by Dr. Bianca Poggianti of the INAF-Astronomical Observatory of Padova, has used the MUSE instrument on ESO’s Very Large Telescope to study how gas can be stripped from so-called ‘jellyfish’ galaxies — galaxies with long ‘tentacles’ of material that extend for dozens of thousands of light-years beyond their galactic disks. [...]

New Class of Chemical Reaction Discovered: ‘Chemically Termolecular’ Reactions
A duo of researchers from Columbia University and Argonne National Laboratory has discovered an entirely new class of chemical reaction, dubbed chemically termolecular (i.e. three-molecule) reactions, in which three different molecules are involved in bond making and/or breaking. ‘Chemically termolecular’ reactions were first hypothesized in the 1920-30s by Sir Cyril Norman Hinshelwood and Nikolay Nikolaevich [...]

Yoga may have health benefits for people with chronic non-specific lower back pain
A new systematic review, published in the Cochrane Library today, suggests that yoga may lead to a reduction in pain and functional ability in people with chronic non-specific lower back pain over the short term, compared with no exercise. However, researchers advise that more studies are needed to provide information on long-term effects.

Study first to connect stress-associated brain activity with cardiovascular risk
A study led by Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) and Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai (ISSMS) investigators has linked, for the first time in humans, activity in a stress-sensitive structure within the brain to the risk of subsequent cardiovascular disease. The team's findings, being published in the journal The Lancet, also reveals a pathway leading from activation of that structure—the amygdala—through elevated immune system activity to an increased incidence of cardiovascular events.

The laws of attraction: Pheromones don't lie, fruit fly research suggests
For the first time, scientists have shown that a female fruit fly's pheromone signals can actually tell males how much energy her body has invested in egg production versus in storing away energy for her own survival. And it's a signal that she can't change in order to make herself more attractive.
