COVID-19 exposes broadband gaps
The COVID-19 crisis has increasingly highlighted shortcomings in Australia's National Broadband Network, Flinders University experts say. With access to high-speed broadband (HSB) and the internet via the NBN now central to people's livelihoods, education, healthcare delivery and even social connections, the Flinders University researchers say the ''short-term politics of the 2013 federal election'' led to decisions which caused an expensive rollout and current problems with the network.

Broadband internet causes sleep deprivation, a new study finds
Individuals with DSL access tend to sleep 25 minutes less than their counterparts without DSL Internet. They are significantly less likely to sleep between 7 and 9 hours, the amount recommended by the scientific community, and are less likely to be satisfied with their sleep, Bocconi University's Francesco Billari and colleagues find. The effect is largely driven by individuals that face time constraints in the morning and by the use of electronic devices in the evening (not by their use throughout the day) (2018-08-02)

While small, independent Internet Service Providers (ISPs) drove the innovations in the Internet access market, telecommunications companies have since regained control, effectively shutting down the upstarts, say Penn State researchers. (2004-09-08)

More children for the high educated: Broadband Internet creates a digital fertility divide
Access to broadband Internet has a positive effect on fertility, overall life satisfaction and time spent with children. Since this effect is largely driven by higher-educated women, though, it risks to create another digital divide, according to a study by Francesco Billari and Luca Stella (Bocconi University), with Osea Giuntella (University of Pittsburgh), just published in Population Studies. (2019-04-02)

Eumelanin's secrets
Melanin -- and specifically, the form called eumelanin -- is the primary pigment that gives humans the coloring of their skin, hair, and eyes. It protects the body from the hazards of ultraviolet and other radiation that can damage cells and lead to skin cancer, but the exact reason why the compound is so effective at blocking such a broad spectrum of sunlight has remained something of a mystery. (2014-05-22)

Babies have a different way of hearing the world by listening to all frequencies simultaneously
The world apparently sounds very different to infants than it does to adults. Sometimes it's filled with a cacophony of sounds that makes it difficult for babies to distinguish a single sound because babies are generalist and hear all frequencies simultaneously so they can respond to unexpected sounds, reports a University of Washington researcher.
