Exercise is good for you. This isn't news of course, but there is a growing body of research that is starting to suggest that exercise can improve a variety of cognitive deficits in conditions we traditionally wouldn't think physical activity could affect. A new trial into the effects of aerobic exercise on schizophrenia has confirmed it does indeed lessen negative symptoms associated with
The slow food movement is all about appreciating the process of cooking, so perhaps we can call this the slow stool movement? This enthusiastic soul yanked down some lumber and gnawed it into shape with his teeth to see if he could build himself a seat without any tools...

Although it makes up everything we see and touch on a daily basis, ordinary (or baryonic) matter is relatively rare in the universe, and weirder still there seems to be a huge chunk of it missing. After 20 years of scouring the sky, astronomers using the ESA's XMM-Newton observatory have now found clues to this missing matter hiding in intergalactic gas... Continue Reading X-rays from deep
Single-use plastic straws are a massive environmental problem. In the US alone, around 500 million straws are used every day, and according to a 2017 survey plastic straws are the 11th most commonly found trash in the ocean. The problem has recently started to enter the public consciousness with calls for bans of the ubiquitous plastic drinking tubes. At least one major source of the probl
Things are looking very unpleasant for NASA's Opportunity rover as the dust storm raging on Mars is officially classed as "global." Mission control has been out of contact with the unmanned explorer for over a week despite repeated attempts by NASA's Deep Space Network (DSN) to find a signal that Opportunity is programmed to transmit each Martian morning. Meanwhile, the dust blotting out t
The race is currently on to develop an effective and simple diagnostic tool to help identify patients suffering from mild cognitive impairment (MCI). A new study is suggesting that a simple at-home test, administered through a laptop or smartphone, could accurately diagnose cases of MCI, allowing for early interventions to help prevent further cognitive decline...

Volvo has been among the leaders of slipping out of various major auto shows in favor of independent vehicle reveals, and this time it has a very good reason. The introduction of the all-new S60 coincides with the inauguration of Volvo's first-ever American manufacturing plant.

While landmines in general are pretty awful, the PFM-1 "butterfly" mine is particularly nasty. Because of its small size and mainly plastic construction, the butterfly-shaped device is notoriously difficult to find using metal detectors or other common methods. Now, however, it turns out that drones can be used to locate the things... Continue Reading Infrared-packin' drones used to hunt b
Chameleons are able to change color via a layer of skin cells known as iridophores, which contain nanocrystals. As the lizards stretch or relax their skin, the spacing between those crystals changes, altering the manner in which they reflect light. Now, scientists have designed a color-changing nanolaser that works the same way... Continue Reading Nanolaser changes color, just like a chame
While there are already portable keyboards that can be rolled up, we know how it is … sometimes you just want to crumple the thing up and jam it in your pocket. Well, new technology developed by South Korean scientists will allow you to do just that – plus the keyboards should be cheap, too...
