When positive thinking leads to financial irresponsibility like compulsive gambling
Looking on the bright side can lead to irresponsible financial behavior, reveals a paper from the June 2008 issue of the Journal of Consumer Research. In a series of studies, Elizabeth Cowley (University of Sydney) examines repeat gambling in the face of loss. She finds that people often engage in too much positive thinking, selectively focusing on one win among hundreds of losses when they think back on the overall experience. (2008-04-21)

Raptor tracker
In a discovery seemingly straight from the movie 'Jurassic World,' University of Alberta researcher Scott Persons and alumnus Lida Xing are part of the research team that has just documented a rich fossil footprint site in central China containing tracks by several kinds of dinosaurs, including raptors.

'Dropouts' pinpoint earliest galaxies
Astronomers, conducting the broadest survey to date of galaxies from about 800 million years after the Big Bang, have found 22 early galaxies and confirmed the age of one by its characteristic hydrogen signature at 787 million years post Big Bang. The finding is the first age-confirmation of a so-called dropout galaxy at that distant time and pinpoints when an era called the reionization epoch likely began. (2009-11-06)

Atmospheric carbon monoxide levels decline U.S. mid-atlantic region
Levels of atmospheric carbon monoxide (CO) are declining in the U.S. mid-Atlantic region, according to a new study funded in part by the National Science Foundation (NSF). (1999-09-10)
