Keratin, Pigment, Proteins from 54 Million-Year-Old Sea Turtle Show Survival Trait Evolution

Researchers have retrieved original pigment, beta-keratin and muscle proteins from a 54 million-year-old sea turtle hatchling. The work provides direct evidence that a pigment-based survival trait common to modern sea turtles evolved at least 54 million years ago.

New Technique ‘Sees’ Radioactive Material Even After It’s Gone

A new technique allows researchers to characterize nuclear material that was in a location even after the nuclear material has been removed – a finding that has significant implications for nuclear nonproliferation and security applications.

Global Survey: Execs Reporting Significant Risks – But Less-Than-Robust Efforts to Address Them

A global survey of executives finds that most view the world as increasingly risky, with many reporting a “significant operational surprise” over the past five years. However, the majority of executives also report that their organizations are not developing more robust risk management processes.

Study: Most State Pension Plans Paper Over Unfunded Liabilities

An analysis of state pension plans from across the country finds the already troubling state of pension finances may be even worse than it first appears because many pension managers are making their plan’s financial condition look better by perpetually putting off payments.

Field of ‘Sexting’ Research Finds Little to Worry About

A recent analysis of research into how so-called “sexting” may affect sexual behavior finds that it has little impact on sexual activity – but highlights significant shortcomings in the research itself.

Study: ‘Moral Enhancement’ Technologies Are Neither Feasible Nor Wise

A recent study finds that “moral enhancement technologies” – which are discussed as ways of improving human behavior – are neither feasible nor wise, based on an assessment of existing research into these technologies.
