FEATURED STORY
 

Slow Walking Speed Can Predict Dementia

 
 
Featured Story  

A study involving nearly 27,000 older adults on five continents found that nearly 1 in 10 met criteria for pre-dementia based on a simple test that measures how fast people walk and whether they have cognitive complaints. People who tested positive for pre-dementia were twice as likely as others to develop dementia within 12 years.

Study Vindicates 'Missing the Pause' Climate Models

Thumbnail

Climate models can recreate the slowdown in global warming since 1998, as long as they correctly factor in crucial variables such as the state of the El Niño system. The discovery vindicates the models against the accusation that they failed to predict the “alleged hiatus” in surface warming.

Dinos Fell Victim to Perfect Storm of Events

Thumbnail

Dinosaurs might have survived the asteroid strike that wiped them out if it had taken place slightly earlier or later in history, scientists say. A fresh study using up-to-date fossil records and improved analytical tools has helped palaeontologists to build a new narrative of the prehistoric creatures' demise, some 66 million years ago.

Today in Lab History: Jacques-Ernest-Jean Piccard

Thumbnail
Jacques-Ernest-Jean Piccard, born July 28, 1922, was a Swiss oceanic engineer, economist and physicist who assisted his father, Auguste Piccard, in the design of bathyscaphes for deep-sea exploration, including the Trieste, in which he dived with his father, in 1953, to 10,168-ft depth, off the Italian island of Ponza.
