Why “shooting the messenger” is a real condition, explain scientists

A new study looked at why people tend to "shoot the messenger". It's a fact that people don't like those who deliver them bad news. The effect stems from our inherent need to make sense of bad or unpredictable situations. None Have you ever felt like you really didn't like the person who gave you some particularly bad news? Maybe it wasn't even their fault – all the did is tell you about it, but

Prolonged transmission of a resistant bacterial strain in a Northern California hospital

Researchers have used whole genome sequencing (WGS) to demonstrate transmission of a single bacterial strain that possessed a carbapenem-resistance gene in a northern California hospital. The gene armed the bacteria with resistance to carbapenems, a type of antimicrobial drug reserved as a last-line treatment for serious infections.

Preliminary evidence that lonely people lose the reflex to mimic other people's smiles, potentially sustaining their isolation

Loneliness is a "disease" , associated with an increased risk of death equivalent to smoking 15 cigarettes a day. Strides have been made in understanding what form of loneliness is damaging (a lack of close relationships with other people, rather than a lack of relationships per se), but ways to tackle loneliness are badly needed. Now a new study , available as a preprint on PsyArXiv, reveals a w
