TRAPPIST-1 System Ideal for Planet-Hopping Life
Exoplanet hunters struck gold earlier this year with the discovery of seven rocky bodies orbiting around dwarf star TRAPPIST-1, a find that both raised hopes, and provided a new target, for understanding if life exists elsewhere in the cosmos. Now, new calculations from Harvard researchers suggest this populous planetary system could also help us understand [...]

New Frog Species Discovered: Ecuadorian Rainfrog
A species of frog that is completely new to science has been discovered in the cloud forests of Ecuador. Writing in the journal PLoS ONE, Professor Juan Guayasamin of the Universidad San Francisco de Quito and co-authors are calling the new species the Ecuadorian rainfrog, or Pristimantis ecuadorensis. This frog is known only from three [...]

Sphere of Superfluid Helium Behaves Like Black Hole, Physicists Say
A team of physicists from the Universities of Vermont and Waterloo has discovered that a sphere of cold helium atoms follows a bizarre law of physics — called an entanglement area law — also observed in black holes. The discovery is reported March 13 in the online edition of the journal Nature Physics. In the [...]

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.

Study explains how western diet leads to overeating and obesity
More than two in three adults in the United States are considered overweight or obese, with substantial biomedical and clinical evidence suggesting that chronic overconsumption of a "western diet" - foods consisting high levels of sugars and fats - is a major cause of this epidemic.

Critical step in DNA repair, cellular aging pinpointed
The body's ability to repair DNA damage declines with age, which causes gradual cell demise, overall bodily degeneration and greater susceptibility to cancer. Now, research reveals a critical step in a molecular chain of events that allows cells to mend their broken DNA.

Botany: A stem's 'sense of self' contributes to shape
It is well known that as plants grow, their stems and shoots respond to outside signals like light and gravity. But if plants all have similar stimuli, why are there so many different plant shapes? Using simple mathematical ideas, researchers have constructed a framework that explains and quantifies the different shapes of plant stems.
