Cordillera Azul Antbird: New Bird Species Discovered in Peru
A distinctive new species of antbird has been discovered in the humid montane forests of the San Martin region in north-central Peru. The antbirds are a large family of insect-eating passerine birds, Thamnophilidae, known for habitually following columns of marching ants. There are more than 210 species in roughly 45 genera, known variously as antshrikes, [...]

60-Million-Year-Old Meteorite Impact Zone Discovered on Scotland’s Isle of Skye
A team of geologists has found 60 million-year-old ejecta from a previously unknown meteorite impact on the Isle of Skye, northwest Scotland. This is the first recorded mid-Paleocene impact event in the region and is coincident with the onset of magmatism in the British Paleogene Igneous Province. The team, headed by Birkbeck University of London [...]

Eight Exoplanets Orbit Sun-Like Star Kepler-90
A team of researchers reports the discovery of an eighth planet orbiting Kepler-90, a Sun-like star approximately 2,545 light-years from Earth in the constellation Draco. Their work will be published by the Astrophysical Journal and is available online at arXiv.org. The newly-discovered planet, dubbed Kepler-90i, is a hot, rocky planet about 1.3 times the size [...]

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.

Study prompts new ideas on cancers’ origins
Cancer therapies often target cells that grow and divide rapidly, such as stem cells, but in studying how stomach cancers occur, researchers found that even when the stomach isn't able to make stem cells, other cells in the stomach can begin to divide and contribute to precancerous lesions.

Nanostructures control heat transfer
For the first time, scientists have succeeded in precisely controlling temperature-dependent thermal conductivity with the help of polymer materials. These advanced functional materials were initially produced for laboratory experiments. The findings are of great relevance to the development of new concepts of thermal insulation.
