Predicting Longevity May Be Simpler Than ThoughtStudy found age-related changes in DNA were not as accurate as factors such as age and mobility By Robert Preidt Thursday, April 7, 2016 [image: HealthDay news image] THURSDAY, April 7, 2016 (HealthDay News) -- Testing the length of the ends of your DNA strands may not be the best predictor of how long you will live, a new study suggests. Instead, simpler measures that include your age and your ability to climb stairs or walk a short distance may more accurately pinpoint longevity, researchers report. The study team analyzed death r... mais »

HE WAS 12 WHEN A CLASSMATE ASKED HIM THE QUESTION: “DOES YOUR FATHER THINK THAT GOD IS DEAD?” HAMILTON HAD TO ADMIT THAT THE ANSWER WAS YES. Before long, another friend’s grandmother had started lobbying to have his father, William Hamilton, who was then a professor at Colgate Rochester Divinity School in Rochester, N.Y, fired. Rather than going to church, the family started doing Bible reading at home, on their own. Eventually, they left Rochester. There was no way t... mais »

PLANTS AND ANIMALSThe Ancestor Of Malaria May Have Once Infected Dinosaurs March 31, 2016 | by Josh L Davis photo credit: The oldest record of the malaria parasite Plasmodium is thought to be in 20-million-year-old amber. George Poinar, Jr., courtesy of Oregon State University The evolutionary origin of the malaria parasite may be older than anyone thought. A new analysis of a 100-million-year-old insect preserved in amber shows evidence for the oldest ancestral strain of malaria, meaning it likely infected not just the ancestors of mammals, but dinosaurs too. The research is based ... mais »

The data were created by an electron microscope designed and built at Harvard Medical School to collect millions of images in nanoscopic detail, so that every one of the “wires” could be seen, along with the connections between them. Some of the neurons are color-coded according to their activity patterns in the living brain. This is the newest example of functional connectomics, which combines high...mais »

Here’s Why Uncertainty Makes You So Miserable - Alexandra Sifferlin @acsifferlin March 29, 2016 Knowing something bad is coming is more bearable than uncertainty People like to know what’s coming for them, even if it’s bad, a new study suggests. A small study published Tuesday found that people are more stressed out when there is the possibility they will experience discomfort as opposed to when they knew for sure something bad is coming. In the study, published in the journal *Nature Communications*, people were shown a bunch of rocks and were asked to guess whether a snake... mais »
