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.

Water vapor annealing technique on diamond surfaces for next-generation power devices
The existing surface termination technique using hydrogen to stabilize the diamond's structure for application in electronic power devices results in two-dimensional hole gas layers (2DHG). Attempting to remove these layers using oxygen-termination roughens the diamond surface and leads to degradation of the device performance. To overcome this, researchers from Kanazawa University and the National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology removed 2DHG from diamond using water vapor annealing and maintained an atomically flat surface.

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. (2018-08-02)

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)

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.

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.

Beauty requires thought, neuroscientists find
Experiencing beauty requires thought, a team of neuroscientists finds, in a new study that confirms an 18th-century claim by the philosopher Immanuel Kant. (2017-05-11)

Beauty requires thought -- study supports philosophical claim
Does the experience of beauty require a person to think? And can sensuous pleasures, like eating or sex, be beautiful? Such questions have long preoccupied philosophers, with Immanuel Kant making the famous claim that beauty requires thought, unlike sensuous pleasure, which, he said, can never be beautiful. Now, researchers reporting in Current Biology say that Kant was right on one count and wrong on the other. (2017-05-11)

The most accurate measurement of rare meson decay confirms modern physics
Many scientists working on the LHCb experiment at CERN had hoped that the just achieved, exceptional accuracy in the measurement of the rare decay of the Bs0 meson would at last delineate the limits of the Standard Model, the current theory of the structure of matter, and reveal the first phenomena unknown to modern physics. Meanwhile, the spectacular result of the latest analysis has only served to extend the range of applicability of the Model. (2017-04-12)

The incredible complexity of how biological systems interact to create tissue from the information contained in genes boggles the mind -- and drives the work of biomedical scientists around the world. Now, a pair of mathematicians has introduced a new way of thinking about these concepts that may help set the stage for better understanding of our bodies and other living things. (2017-03-03)

First trace of differences between matter and 'ordinary' antimatter
The world around us is mainly constructed of baryons, particles composed of three quarks. Why are there no antibaryons, since just after the Big Bang, matter and antimatter came into being in exactly the same amounts? A lot points to the fact that after many decades of research, physicists are closer to the answer to this question. In the Large Hadron Collider beauty (LHCb) experiment the first trace of the differences between baryons and antibaryons has just been encountered. (2017-02-22)

Do you really get paid less if you're 'ugly'?
Do beautiful people earn more while those who are not so gorgeous are paid less? It's not as simple as that, according to Satoshi Kanazawa of the London School of Economics and Political Science in the UK and Mary Still of the University of Massachusetts in Boston. People's salaries are influenced by more than just physical attractiveness, and individual differences count too. The study is published in Springer's Journal of Business and Psychology. (2017-02-16)

Model shows female beauty isn't just sex appeal
Female beauty may have less to do with attracting the opposite sex than previously thought, at least in animals. Results of a mathematical modeling study suggest that romantic attention, by itself, is not enough to give attractive females an evolutionary edge over their plainer counterparts -- even when their good looks help them snag superior mates. For females, the benefits of beauty likely go beyond their success in the mating market, the model shows. (2017-01-30)

Starfish larvae create complex water whorls to eat and run
