Computer models shed new light on sickle cell crisis
Sickle cell crisis, a painful blood blockage common in people with sickle cell disease, isn't just about sickle-shaped red blood cells that block capillaries. According to computer models developed by Brown University researchers, a second, stickier kind of red blood cell starts the obstruction, making it difficult for sickle cells to flow past.

New book: Philosophy makes better mathematicians
Does mathematics consist of absolute truths, and are mathematical results always indisputable?
