Prehistoric People Also Likely Disrupted by Environmental Change

Vanderbilt University

Prehistoric people of the Mississippi Delta may have abandoned a large ceremonial site due to environmental stress, according to a new paper authored by Elizabeth Chamberlain, a postdoctoral researcher in Earth and environmental sciences, and University of Illinois anthropologist Jayur Mehta. The study used archaeological excavations, geologic mapping and coring, and radiocarbon dating to identify how Native Americans built and inhabited the Grand Caillou mound near Dulac, Louisiana.

Portable Malaria Screening Instrument Developed

University of Southern California Viterbi School of Engineering

A prototype for a portable instrument capable of early-stage malaria detection has been developed by a team of researchers at the USC Viterbi School of Engineering. The prototype can analyze an unprocessed, whole blood sample in 10-15 minutes using three primary components: a laser, a detector (to detect light), and a magnet.
