Does it matter if your kids listen to you? When adolescents reject mom’s advice, it still helps them cope
College of Agricultural, Consumer and Environmental Sciences, University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign

Parents are often eager to give their adolescent children advice about school problems, but they may find that youth are less than receptive to their words of wisdom. However, kids who don’t seem to listen to their parents may still benefit from their input, a new study from the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign shows.

Use of maternal race in prenatal screens for spina bifida is needed to ensure equitable medical care
Association for Diagnostic and Laboratory Medicine (ADLM (formerly AACC))

Breaking research demonstrates that clinical labs should account for the self-reported race of pregnant individuals when screening for spina bifida and other open neural tube defects. This finding, which was presented today in the Association for Diagnostics & Laboratory Medicine’s (formerly AACC’s) Clinical Chemistry journal, could improve prenatal care for pregnant Black individuals.

Swifties unite after ‘The Great War’ to make a move into politics
University of Notre Dame

New research from political scientists at the University of Notre Dame found that the botched ticket presales for Taylor Swift’s “Eras Tour” in late 2022 made it nearly impossible for most Swift fans to get tickets, forcing them to pay attention to event ticketing politics — namely the lack of market competition, consumer rights and wealth inequality — and galvanizing them to speak out on those issues and hold their elected officials accountable.

Galaxies Actively Forming in Early Universe Caught Feeding on Cold Gas
Space Telescope Science Institute (STScI)

A team in Denmark examining archival data from the James Webb Space Telescope recently found a trio of distant galaxies that are in the process of gathering gas when the universe was only a few hundred million years old. Their detection and characterization are remarkable achievements that only Webb is currently capable of, thanks to its specialization in infrared light.
