For many firms, losing significant revenue and profit to employee theft has been a cost of doing business. But a new study from Washington University in St. Louis finds that information technology monitoring is strikingly effective in reducing theft and fraud, especially in the restaurant industry.

'Negative Working Conditions Score' Linked to Depressive Symptoms

The sum total of adverse working conditions explains a substantial portion of the risk of depression in working-age adults, suggests a study in the September Journal of Occupational and Environmental Medicine, official publication of the American College of Occupational and Environmental Medicine (ACOEM).

New Evidence to Aid Search for Charge 'Stripes' in Superconductors

D4580813.jpg

Scientists at Brookhaven National Laboratory used an indirect method to detect fluctuating "stripes" of charge density in a material closely related to a superconductor. The research identifies a key signature to look for in superconductors as scientists seek ways to better understand and engineer these materials for future energy-saving applications.

Can You Predict Complications with Back Surgery? Preoperative Factors increase Risk

For older adults undergoing surgery for spinal stenosis, some simple indicators of poor preoperative health predict a high risk of major medical complications, reports a study in the September 1 issue of Spine. The journal is published by Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, a part of Wolters Kluwer Health.

Death by Asexuality: Biologists Uncover New Path for Mutations to Arise

Ground-breaking new research from a team of evolutionary biologists at Indiana University shows for the first time how asexual lineages of a species are doomed not necessarily from a long, slow accumulation of new mutations, but rather from fast-paced gene conversion processes that simply unmask pre-existing deleterious recessive mutations.

Medication Does Not Slow Progression of Coronary Disease in Patients with Prehypertension

Among patients with prehypertension and coronary artery disease, use of the renin (an enzyme secreted by the kidneys) inhibitor aliskiren, compared with placebo, did not result in improvement or slowing in the progression of coronary atherosclerosis, according to a study published by JAMA.

Twitter Fights Transport Problems

In a Joint international research, scientists developed a method to collect information regarding transportation problems using the tweets made by citizens on Twitter. "The ability of social networks to produce information on heavy traffic, road hazards, availability of public transportation and more is a valuable tool for decision makers," said Dr. Tsvi Kuflik, the Head of the Information Systems Department at the University of Haifa and one of the researchers in this study.
