Beluga whales Little Grey and Little White have been moved to the open-water section of the Sea Life Trust sanctuary in Klettsvik Bay.
In refusing to acknowledge that they have made a mistake, narcissists fail to learn from those mistakes, a recent study from Oregon State University -- Cascades found.
Tuatara - What is it HUMAN, REPTILE, BIRD? New Zealand’s lizard like creature tuatara is on a branch of itself in the evolutionary tree of life.
Small talk with coworkers in the break room and pleasantries exchanged with office staff are more meaningful than you might think, according to an Academy of Management Journal article. The researchers show that even though chitchat is superficial, “it’s about building culture and collaboration.”

Bifocal contact lenses aren’t just for aging eyes anymore. In nearsighted kids as young as 7 years old, multifocal contact lenses with a heavy dose of added reading power can dramatically slow further progression of myopia, new research has found. In the three-year clinical trial of almost 300 children, a bifocal contact lens prescription wit...
Study is first to detail impacts of dirty air on insect health
New research based on four decades of longitudinal data indicates that it is rare for a person to receive and keep a single mental disorder diagnosis. ...
Results from cell culture experiments show that commercially available preparations have an effect on Sars-Cov-2 viruses.
Schools are reopening, amusement parks are welcoming back visitors, and outdoor dining is the new way to eat out. But despite the signs that life is returning back to normal, the coronavirus pandemic has gone nowhere.
A team of chemical engineers from Australia and China has developed a sustainable, solar-powered way to desalinate water in just 30 minutes. This process can create close to 40 gallons of clean drinking water per kilogram of filtration material and can be used for multiple cycles
Chemical engineers have developed a solar-powered way to efficiently desalinate drinking water in just 30 minutes using a special material.
Liquid water, once thought unique to Earth, may be common on icy worlds throughout the solar system.
A research team, led by Australia's Monash University, has been able to transform brackish water and seawater into safe, clean drinking water in less than 30 minutes using metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) and sunlight.
Since the 19th century, people have been looking for the differences between the male and female brain. But scientists recently claimed that both brais do not have any difference at all.
A recent review speculates that publicly available mouthwashes might help reduce the transmission of SARS-CoV-2, the virus responsible for COVID-19.
Automatic gratuities leave restaurant patrons with a bad taste, even when the meal and the service were excellent, new research from WSU indicates.
University of Central Florida researchers have developed a replacement sort of beam that does not follow long-held principles about how light refracts and travels.
In “Planckian metals,” electrons dissipate energy at the fastest possible rate allowed by the fundamental laws of quantum mechanics, resulting in a linear temperature dependence of their electrical resistivity. Although observed for a number of quantum materials, this phenomenon lacks a general theoretical understanding and is often considered as one of the prominent fundamental questions in condensed matter physics. Here, we show that Planckian dissipation and a behavior consistent with the “marginal Fermi liquid” phenomenology emerge in the quantum critical regime separating a Mott insulating spin glass and a Fermi liquid. By establishing this behavior in an explicit model solvable by state-of-the-art computational methods, our theory paves the way toward a deeper understanding of Planckian or “strange” metals. The data analyzed in this article are available at the Figshare repository (). : #ref-67
A large number of the valley networks scarring Mars’s surface were carved by water melting beneath glacial ice, not by free-flowing rivers as previously thought, according to new UBC research.
In an interview with Reuters published on Wednesday, Dr. Anthony Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), said that the novel coronavirus may never be ...
The answer is hotly contested.
