Forensic analysis reveals clues as to what new substances and drugs were introduced to England in the 16th and 17th century from the New World- and if Shakespeare and his contemporaries were taking part in these new activities.
Recently, Forensic Magazine sat down with John Walsh, host and creator of "America's Most Wanted," about his new show on CNN called "The Hunt." Walsh said his team have already captured four dangerous fugitives--three are now deceased--and the second season is about to begin.
If someone were to ask you, right now, “what change can you make today in your lab that would have an immediate positive impact on the environment?,” what would you say? Here’s a big, big hint: your water aspirators.
The editors of Laboratory Equipment want you to start your week with a smile on your face. So, here’s a science joke you might like. Q: Why did the dinosaur cross the road?
Chemtrails, the conspiracy theory that government planes are spraying substances from airplanes to “geoengineer” the environment and unsuspecting people on the ground, was investigated by a paper published on Aug. 11. Less than a month later, the journal retracted the study, partly because the “language of the paper is often not sufficiently scientifically objective.”
Using an inexpensive drug for every hip or knee replacement since 2013 has helped a Canadian hospital reduce its number of red blood cell transfusions performed during these surgeries by more than 40 percent without negatively affecting patients, according to new research.
An international team of scientists have dated a species of fossil monkey found across the Caribbean to just over 1 million years old. The discovery was made after the researchers recovered a fossil tibia (shin bone) belonging to the species of extinct monkey Antillothrix bernensis from an underwater cave in Altagracia Province, Dominican Republic.
In the war on disease, humans are at a loss. Armed with antibiotics, once thought to be miracle drugs, humans gained the upper hand and millions of lives were saved. But bacteria are smart and have been on Earth far longer than humans, so they began to develop resistance to antibiotics.
A team of researchers that has spent years searching for the earliest objects in the universe now reports the detection of what may be the most distant galaxy ever found.
Natural wonders like tumbling waterfalls, jutting rock faces and banks of wildflowers have long drawn visitors to America’s national parks and inspired efforts to protect their beauty. According to a study, visitors also value and seek to protect a different kind of threatened natural resource in the parks: dark nighttime skies.
An international team of researchers has found chemical evidence of melanosome preservation in fossilized dinosaur feathers, using evidence from a specimen of Anchiornis huxleyi. The evidence of animal-specific melanin in fossil feathers is the final nail in the coffin that shows that these microbodies are indeed melanosomes and not microbes.
NASA’s New Horizons team has eyed its next potential target, a small Kuiper Belt object orbiting nearly a billion miles beyond Pluto. Known as 2014 MU69, the celestial body, scientists estimate, is under 30 miles across, but still more than 10 times lager and 1,000 times more massive than typical comets. However, it’s still 0.5 to 1% the size of Pluto.
A group of physicians have discovered a peptide called TP508 that may be able to prevent intestinal damage from severe radiation exposure.
Why aren’t there more lions? When researchers looked into the problem, they got an unexpected answer: the discovery of what appears to be a new law of nature- more crowding leads to fewer offspring.
As the world’s oceans warm in response to climate change, marine species are relocating — generally toward the poles — in pursuit of water temperatures that suit them. This in turn will increase biodiversity in many areas or lead to extinctions in others.
Researchers have for the first time seen a spin current – an inherent magnetic property common to all electrons – as it travels across materials. The result, which revealed a surprising loss of current along the way, is an important step toward realizing a next-generation breed of electronics known as “spintronics."
