On Aug. 28, 1963, from the steps of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C., Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. delivered “I Have a Dream” – one of the most iconic speeches in American history and a defining moment of the Civil Rights Movement. For black gospel artists recording in the years after 1963, King’s speech was fertile ground for creative expression, said Robert Darden, professor of journalism and founder and director of Baylor’s Black Gospel Music Restoration Project (BGMRP).

For nearly a decade, the rollout of new express bus and train service made it easier for Americans to put down their car keys and hop on a bus or train for intercity travel. But declining gas prices and fewer public transportation options are forcing travelers back behind the wheel, according to DePaul University researchers. A new study from the Chaddick Institute for Metropolitan Development shows that the country’s push for a balanced transportation system has hit the brakes.

A number of factors, including obesity, shorten the lifespan for those with schizophrenia by 20 years and by 10 years for those with bipolar disorder, compared to the general population. In the first study to compare long-term weight gain across psychotic disorders, researchers show that expanding waistlines and the way body fat is distributed are largely to blame.

New Use of Blood Cleaning Device Saves High-Risk Patients with Liver Failure

University of Maryland School of Medicine researchers report that a device that removes toxins from the blood can also effectively provide a bridge to liver transplantation or buy time for a traumatically injured liver to heal, suggesting broader uses for the device than previously thought.
