Beauty, grace, mystery -- this magnificent spiral galaxy has all the qualities of a perfect galactic Valentine. Captured by the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope, the galaxy NGC 3344 presents itself face-on, allowing astronomers a detailed look at its intricate and elegant structure. And Hubble's ability to observe objects over a wide range of different wavelengths reveals features that would otherwise remain invisible. (2018-02-14)

Wisdom at the end of life
In a paper publishing Jan. 24 in the journal International Psychogeriatrics, researchers at the University of California San Diego School of Medicine asked 21 hospice patients, ages 58 to 97 and in the last six months of their lives, to describe the core characteristics of wisdom and whether their terminal illnesses had changed or impacted their understanding of wisdom.

A new reality for beauty standards: How selfies and filters affect body image
With the spread of photo-editing technology through applications like Snapchat and Facetune, the level of physical 'perfection' previously seen only on celebrity or beauty magazines is now all over social media. As these images become the norm, people's perceptions of beauty worldwide are changing, which can take a toll on a person's self-esteem and can trigger body dysmorphic disorder (BDD), argue Boston Medical Center (BMC) researchers in a JAMA Facial Plastic Surgery Viewpoint.

Designing gene therapy
Scientists in the Barabas group at EMBL have increased the efficiency of a genome-engineering tool called Sleeping Beauty, which is showing promise in clinical trials for leukemia and lymphoma immunotherapies.

In a study published in Nature Communications, they reveal structural information that they hope will ultimately result in better patient outcomes. (2016-03-31)

Thin is in? Think again.
Models used in social media postings, or more than a decade's worth of Miss USA beauty pageant winners tell us that thin female bodies are still rated as attractive. However, US women's perceptions of what constitutes the perfect female figure have evolved in recent years to a 'thin and toned' ideal. This is according to Frances Bozsik of the University of Missouri-Kansas City in the US, who led a study in Springer's journal Sex Roles. (2018-01-25)

Native trees, shrubs provide more food for birds
Plant native trees and shrubs in your yard, and you can really help songbirds. In a study of the Carolina chickadee in the metropolitan DC area, researchers from the University of Delaware and the Smithsonian Migratory Bird Center found that native trees and shrubs support much more 'bird food' -- caterpillars -- than non-natives do. (2017-10-30)

The potential harbingers of new physics just don't want to disappear
For some time now, in the data from the LHCb experiment at the Large Hadron Collider, several anomalies have been seen in the decays of beauty mesons. Are they more than just statistical fluctuations? The latest analysis, conducted with the participation of the Institute of Nuclear Physics Polish Academy of Sciences and taking into account so-called long-distance effects in the decays of particles, increases the probability that what is behind the anomalies is more than just another prank played by measuring techniques. (2018-08-30)

Novel technique reveals the intricate beauty of a cracked glass
Typical crack speeds in glass easily surpass a kilometer per second, and broken surface features may be well smaller than a millimeter, so the processes that generate these patterns have been largely a mystery. Now, by replacing hard glass with soft but brittle gels, researchers have slowed down the cracks that precipitate fracture to mere meters per second, and unraveled the complex physical processes that take place during fracture in microscopic detail and in real time. (2017-10-31)

Commentary asks: What constitutes beauty and how is it perceived?
Beauty has many facets. Research shows there are many biological, psychological, cultural and social aspects that influence how beauty and attractiveness are perceived. Researchers now believe that beauty preferences are partly an effect of a rudimentary cognitive process that appears quite early in life, with humans having a seemingly automatic ability to categorize a person as beautiful or not. Scientific literature supports such physical features as universal criteria for human attractiveness. (2019-06-05)
