New WHO-led study says majority of adolescents worldwide are not sufficiently physically active, putting their current and future health at risk

World Health Organization (WHO)

The first ever global trends for adolescent insufficient physical activity show that urgent action is needed to increase physical activity levels in girls and boys aged 11 to 17 years. The study, published in The Lancet Child & Adolescent Health journal and produced by researchers from the World Health Organization (WHO), finds that more than 80% of school-going adolescents globally did not meet current recommendations of at least one hour of physical activity per day – including 85% of girls and 78% of boys.

Newswise: Theorists probe the relationship between ‘strange metals’ and high-temperature superconductors

Theorists probe the relationship between ‘strange metals’ and high-temperature superconductors

SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory

SLAC theorists have observed strange metallicity in a well-known model for simulating and describing the behavior of materials with strongly correlated electrons, which join forces to produce unexpected phenomena rather than acting independently.

Newswise: Germ-free lungs of newborn mice are partially protected against hyperoxia

Germ-free lungs of newborn mice are partially protected against hyperoxia

University of Alabama at Birmingham

A novel newborn mouse model probes the effect of high oxygen concentration, or hyperoxia, on lung development of pups that are germ-free — with no microbes in their lungs. The model will show how different types of microbes that colonize human lungs at birth protect or make an infant more susceptible to life-threatening bronchopulmonary dysplasia.
