PREGNANCY: Less exercise in pregnancy after past miscarriage
New research finds lower motivation to exercise and poorer psychological health among women with a history of miscarriage and those who are overweight or obese before pregnancy. Additionally, women who were less likely to exercise had higher rates of anxiety and depression, according to researchers who surveyed 113 women, 41 of which had a prior miscarriage, and 72 who were overweight or obese. “

They used a popular input method app—Kika Emoji Keyboard—made available in 60 languages. The team’s
DUST BOWL: Tech wouldn’t save US crops from another Dust Bowl
Technological advances wouldn’t protect US agriculture from a drought on the scale of the legendary Dust Bowl crisis of the 1930s, research shows. Additionally, warming temperatures could lead to crop losses at the scale of the Dust Bowl, even in normal precipitation years by the mid-21st century, scientists conclude. “By mid-century even a normal year in precipitation could be as bad as what we
HIV: Seizures that signal HIV create treatment Catch-22

OBESITY: Deeper than obesity: A majority of people is now overfat
Researchers put forth the notion of overfat, a condition of having sufficient excess body fat to impair health.

Physical activity benefits diabetics and others with insulin resistance. One of the reasons is that a single bout of physical activity increases the effectiveness of insulin.

Until now, no one has understood the underlying mechanism of this phenomenon.

Chickens are not as clueless or 'bird-brained' as people believe them to be. They have distinct personalities and can outmaneuver one another. They know their place in the pecking order, and can reason by deduction, which is an ability that humans develop by the age of seven. Chicken intelligence is therefore unnecessarily underestimated and overshadowed by other avian groups.
DNA – AND ZINC: Zinc eaten at levels found in biofortified crops reduces 'wear and tear' on DNA
A new study shows that a modest 4 milligrams of extra zinc a day in the diet can have a profound, positive impact on cellular health that helps fight infections and diseases. This amount of zinc is equivalent to what biofortified crops like zinc rice and zinc wheat can add to the diet of vulnerable, nutrient deficient populations.
BATS CALL: Bats avoid collisions by calling less in a crowd
In the warm summer months, bats go about their business each night, flying and gobbling up insects (a benefit to us). Using echolocation (making calls and listening for returning echoes to figure out where objects are) they can hunt and navigate around obstacles in total darkness, often in large groups. But if everybody is echolocating at once, how do bats pick out their own echoes?
ZIKA VIRUS: Why odds are against a large Zika outbreak in the US
Is the United States at risk for a large-scale outbreak of Zika or other mosquito-borne disease?

Sleep associations are those conditions that are habitually present at the time of sleep onset and in the presence of which the infant or child has learned to fall asleep.
NEURAL DATA: Density-based clustering: A 'landscape view' of multi-channel neural data for inference and dynamic complexity analysis
Simultaneous recordings from N electrodes generate N-dimensional time series that call for efficient representations to expose relevant aspects of the underlying dynamics. Binning the time series defines neural activity vectors that populate the N-dimensional space as a density distribution, especially informative when the neural dynamics performs a noisy path through metastable states
ALZHEIMER: Loss of inter-frequency brain hubs in Alzheimer's disease
Alzheimer's disease (AD) causes alterations of brain network structure and function. The latter consists of connectivity changes between oscillatory processes at different frequency channels.

BRAIN: A computational investigation of the relationships between single-neuron and network dynamics in the cerebral cortex
Functions of brain areas in complex animals are believed to rely on the dynamics of networks of neurons rather than on single neurons.

Understanding how single-neurons and neural-circuits dynamics complement each other to produce brain functions is thus

Many new parents still think that babies should develop at their own pace, and that they shouldn’t be challenged to do things that they’re not yet ready for.

They mustn’t be potty trained before they are ready for it.
