American Service Industry Approaching a 'Tipping Point'

Posted: 27 Feb 2018 10:05 AM PST

Newswise imageThe average rate at which Americans tip for services has been increasing steadily for decades, but the practice has been branded over the years as classist, anti-egalitarian, and downright undemocratic, leading some restaurateurs to abandon it. A new paper, drawing insight from nonlinear dynamics and published in the journal Chaos, hopes to shed light on the economically irrational world of tipping, showing that at a certain point, banning the practice might be fair and profitable.

Frederick National Laboratory for Cancer Research and Georgetown University Launch Research, Education Collaboration

Posted: 27 Feb 2018 10:05 AM PST

A new collaboration established between Georgetown University and the Frederick National Laboratory for Cancer Research aims to expand both institutions' research and training missions in the biomedical sciences.

Largest Chinook Salmon Disappearing From West Coast

Posted: 27 Feb 2018 09:05 AM PST

Newswise imageThe largest and oldest Chinook salmon -- fish also known as "kings" and prized for their exceptional size -- have mostly disappeared along the West Coast, according to a University of Washington-led study.

Novel Genome Platform Reveals New HIV Targets

Posted: 27 Feb 2018 09:00 AM PST

Newswise imageSBP researchers have developed the first ever high-throughput, genome-scale imaging-based approach to investigate protein stability. The method has been used to identify several previously unknown human proteins that HIV degrades to enhance its infection process.

Wind and Solar Power Could Meet Four-Fifths of U.S. Electricity Demand, Study Finds

Posted: 27 Feb 2018 08:05 AM PST

The United States could reliably meet about 80 percent of its electricity demand with solar and wind power generation, according to scientists at the University of California, Irvine; the California Institute of Technology; and the Carnegie Institution for Science.

New Research Illustrates How Birds Help to Produce Rare Wild Chili Peppers

Posted: 27 Feb 2018 08:05 AM PST

Newswise imageA new study involving Iowa State University scientists explores how birds in the Mariana Islands help to disperse the seeds of a wild chili plant. The research highlights the unique ways different species help one another, a concept known as mutualism.

AMP Publishes Recommendations for Clinical CYP2C19 Genotyping Allele Selection

Posted: 27 Feb 2018 08:00 AM PST

AMP has published consensus, evidence-based recommendations to aid clinical laboratory professionals when designing and validating clinical CYP2C19 assays, promote standardization of testing across different laboratories and complement existing clinical guidelines.

Why Are Some Mushrooms "Magic?"

Posted: 27 Feb 2018 07:05 AM PST

Psychedelic mushrooms likely developed their "magical" properties to trip up fungi-munching insects, suggests new research. The work helps explain a biological mystery and could open scientific doors to studies of novel treatments for neurological disease.

Rutgers Personal Bioblitz Connects People with Nature

Posted: 27 Feb 2018 07:00 AM PST

Newswise imageWhen Lena Struwe was hiking in the Monteverde Cloud Forest Biological Reserve in Costa Rica three years ago, she spotted a yellowish harvestman, a spider-type animal, on a hiking trail rail and took a photo with her camera. It turned out her photo of the long-legged arachnid, Eucynorta conigera, was the first ever of that species and only the third sighting of it ever reported.

Alcohol Intervention for Emerging Adults Who Are Not Attending College

Posted: 27 Feb 2018 07:00 AM PST

Emerging adulthood (between ages 18-25) is a period of critical vulnerability for problematic alcohol use. A substantial amount of research has examined alcohol risks in college-student populations, while much less research has focused on emerging adults who are not attending college. This study investigated the effectiveness of a brief personalized feedback intervention (PFI) tailored for nonstudent at-risk drinkers, the influence of gender on intervention outcomes, and the acceptability of the intervention to participants.

Massive Data Analysis Shows What Drives the Spread of Flu in the U.S.

Posted: 27 Feb 2018 05:00 AM PST

Using several large datasets describing health care visits, geographic movements and demographics of more than 150 million people over nine years, researchers at the University of Chicago have created models that predict the spread of influenza throughout the United States each year.

New Online Tool Gives 3D View of Human Metabolic Processes

Posted: 26 Feb 2018 04:05 PM PST

A new computational resource called Recon3D provides a 3D view of genes, proteins and metabolites involved in human metabolism. Researchers used the tool to map disease-related mutations on proteins and also probed how genes and proteins change in response to certain drugs. The work provides a better understanding of disease-causing mutations and could enable researchers to discover new uses for existing drug treatments.

New Committee Examining Solutions to Enhance Coral Reef Resilience

Posted: 26 Feb 2018 03:05 PM PST

The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine recently appointed a new committee of 12 international experts tasked with investigating strategies to increase the resilience of coral reefs. California State University, Monterey Bay (CSUMB) School of Natural Sciences associate professor Cheryl Logan represents CSUMB on the committee.

Carbon Yarn Taps Nerves for Electroceutical Treatments and Diagnostics

Newswise imageYarn weaved from carbon nanotubes monitors brain control of organ functions in rats, paves way for disease diagnosis and treatment at single nerve level.

First Nanoscale Look at How Lithium Ions Navigate a Molecular Maze to Reach Battery Electrode

Posted: 26 Feb 2018 12:10 PM PST

Newswise imageLithium ions have to travel through layers of molecules in the electrolyte liquid before they can enter or leave a lithium-ion battery electrode. Tweaking this process could help batteries charge faster.

Reforesting US Topsoils Store Massive Amounts of Carbon, with Potential for Much More

Posted: 26 Feb 2018 12:00 PM PST

Newswise imageForests across the United States--and especially forest soils--store massive amounts of carbon, offsetting about 10 percent of the country's annual greenhouse gas emissions and helping to mitigate climate change.
