A new vaccine under development provoked an immune response to 72 forms of the bacteria that’s responsible for pneumonia, sepsis and meningitis. That’s up from the 23 forms of bacteria covered by current immunizations. The new vaccine, which represents the “most comprehensive” coverage of pneumococcal disease to date, could greatly reduce the number of deaths from the disease.

Students, and people in general, can tend to overestimate their own abilities. But University of Utah research shows that students who overcome this tendency score better on final exams. The boost is strongest for students in the lower 25 percent of the class. By thinking about their thinking, a practice called metacognition, these students raised their final exam scores by 10 percent on average – a full letter grade.
