Researchers Discover an Ugly Truth About Attractiveness

New research from Florida State University finds the attractiveness of a romantic partner can influence a person's desire to diet and seek a slim body, though that motivation contrasts sharply between men and women.

Endangered Cuban Crocodiles Come Home

Experts from WCS’s Global Conservation Programs and WCS’s Bronx Zoo assisted Cuban conservationists in the recent release of 10 Cuban crocodiles (Crocodylus rhombifer) into Cuba’s Zapata Swamp as part of an ongoing recovery strategy for this Critically Endangered species.

First Michigan Proton Center Begins Treating Cancer Patients

Proton therapy is a high-tech alternative to X-ray radiation. It offers greater precision to destroy cancerous cells, sparing adjacent healthy tissue with fewer side effects. Proton therapy uses atomic particles, traveling up to two-thirds the speed of light, to fight cancer. Beaumont’s center is one of just 25 operational proton therapy centers in the U.S.

Low-Cost Smart Glove Translates American Sign Language Alphabet and Controls Virtual Objects

Engineers at the University of California San Diego have developed a smart glove that wirelessly translates the American Sign Language alphabet into text and controls a virtual hand to mimic sign language gestures. The device, which engineers call “The Language of Glove,” was built for less than $100 using stretchable and printable electronics that are inexpensive, commercially available and easy to assemble.

In Autism, Genes Drive Eye Gaze Abnormalities

Using eye-tracking technology, researchers at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis and Emory University School of Medicine in Atlanta have found compelling evidence that genetics plays a major role in how children look at the world and whether they have a preference for gazing at people’s eyes and faces or at objects. The discovery adds new detail to understanding the causes of autism spectrum disorder. Studying twins, the researchers found that where babies focus their eyes is under stringent genetic control.

Astronomy Professor Studies Unusual Galaxy in Distant Universe

MACS2129-1 is dead in the sense that it no longer produces stars. But what makes this galaxy particularly significant is the fact that, unlike many dead galaxies, which tend to be elliptical or oval-shaped, this galaxy is disk or spiral-shaped, like the Milky Way, and its stars rotate in a flattened disk, much like the Milky Way’s stars.

Simulating Splash at the Microscopic Level

Spray cooling is one of the most promising methods for cooling high heat flow electronics. Two-phase spray cooling, in particular, has been shown to cool heat fluxes orders of magnitude higher than traditional cooling methods but the complex physics of it demands deeper understanding. To tackle this, researchers investigated the basic physics of droplet impingement using a computational approach called the lattice-Botzmann method; they report their work in this week’s Physics of Fluids.
