The problem has worsened amid the ongoing opioid crisis. To prevent drugs from falling into the wrong hands, it's more important than ever to dispose of unused pills in a safe and smart way -- and simply throwing them away or even flushing them down the toilet are actually very dangerous options.

Honeybees Infect Wild Bumblebees—Through Shared Flowers

University of Vermont

Viruses in managed honeybees are spilling over to wild bumblebee populations though the shared use of flowers, a first-of-its-kind study reveals. This research suggests commercial apiaries may need to be kept away from areas where there are vulnerable native pollinator species, like the endangered rusty patched bumblebee.

A new normal: Study explains universal pattern in fossil record

Santa Fe Institute

Instead of the typical bell-shaped curve, the fossil record shows a fat-tailed distribution, with extreme, outlier, events occurring with higher-than-expected probability. Using the same mathematical tools that describe stock market crashes, Santa Fe Institute scientists explain the evolutionary dynamics that give rise to universal patterns in the fossil record.
