Expert calls measles vaccine ‘very, very, very safe’

Should parents vaccinate their child for measles? This expert says there is only one answer. Measles can pack a serious punch, landing as many as one in four infected people in the hospital and killing one in 1,000. The peak season in temperate climates starts about now, in late winter and early spring. Widespread immunization all but eliminated measles from the United States by the year 2000. Bu

5 ways life would be better if it were always daylight saving time

In my research on daylight saving time, I have found that Americans don't like it when Congress messes with their clocks. In an effort to avoid the biannual clock switch in spring and fall, some well-intended critics of DST have made the mistake of suggesting that the abolition of DST – and a return to permanent standard time – would benefit society. In other words, the U.S. would never “spring f

This blood protein is vital for liver regeneration

The blood-clotting protein fibrinogen may hold the key to why some patients who undergo surgery to remove a diseased portion of their liver end up needing a transplant when the organ’s regeneration process doesn’t work. “We discovered that fibrinogen accumulates within the remaining liver quickly after surgery and tells platelets to act as first responders, triggering the earliest phase of regene

Care home dehydration tests don't work

Carers often use simple tests to see if an older person is dehydrated. These include looking at their eyes, skin, or asking if someone feels thirsty, tired or has a headache. But new research finds that these tests do not accurately identify dehydration in older people, when compared against 'gold standard' blood tests. The researchers recommend that they are withdrawn from practice.

When liquid metal turns to plasma, the physics get weird

Researchers have discovered a way to turn a liquid metal into a plasma and observe the temperature when a liquid under high-density conditions crosses over to a plasma state. Most people are familiar with the three states of matter: solids, liquids, and gases. But other forms exist, too. Plasmas, for example, are the most abundant form of matter in the universe, found throughout our solar system

Should you listen to music while doing intellectual work? It depends on the music, the task, and your personality
