Lack of continuous infectious disease pandemic research endangers responses
The coronavirus was also studied considerably less than blood borne viruses like Hepatitis B or C and H.I.V. and its research community has less prolific researchers than the other investigated diseases. This translates into limited collaborations and a non-sustained investment in research on coronaviruses. Such a short-lived investment also reduces funding and may slow down important developments such as new drugs, vaccines or preventive strategies. (2020-08-17)

Simulation explains mystery of giant planets' tiny moons
Cornell planetary scientists have used one of the world's most powerful computing clusters to simulate motions of the small moons of Jupiter over a one billion-year epoch, learning how the tugs and pulls of the sun and planets shake out the permanent moons of the giant planets from those that get tossed away.

Plyometric training can lead to a significant increase in the performance of sportspeople
Rodrigo Ramírez-Campillo, lecturer in physical education and Ph.D. holder in health sciences, has shown in his Ph.D. thesis how plyometric training -- exercises involving jumping, sprinting and throwing -- done by young football players can significantly increase their physical performance and thus, potentially, their competitive performance as well.

NTU scientists create customizable, fabric-like power source for wearable electronics
Scientists at Nanyang Technological University, Singapore (NTU Singapore) have created a customizable, fabric-like power source that can be cut, folded or stretched without losing its function. Being highly stretchable, these flexible power sources are promising next-generation 'fabric' energy storage devices that could be integrated into wearable electronics. The team's findings have been published in the journal Advanced Materials. (2018-01-30)

Female Soccer Players Perform Best On A High-Fat Diet, UB Study Finds
Female soccer players performed longer at a higher intensity on a diet composed of 35 percent fat than on diets of 27 percent fat or 24 percent fat, researchers at the University at Buffalo have found. The higher-fat diet, achieved by adding peanuts to the athletes' normal diet, had no effect on weight, percentage of body fat, heart rate or blood pressure. (1999-04-19)

Social media is transforming emergency communications -- Ben-Gurion U. study
Emergency organizations have only started using social media mainly as a response to the presence of the public in them. According to Simon, 'regardless of the type of emergency (a terror attack, hurricane or an earthquake), communication infrastructure may be overloaded and collapse as numerous people attempt to access information. In an emergency, the public is exposed to large quantities of information without being aware of its validity or risk of misinformation. However, users are typically quick to correct.' (2015-08-19)

Professor says college athletic departments must pay more attention to eating disorders
U.S. colleges and universities leave themselves open to lawsuits by not paying enough attention to athletes with eating disorders, especially young women, according to a University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill legal expert. (2000-02-15)

Nonnative Invasive Plants of Southern Forests
The USDA Forest Service Southern Research Station (SRS) has published a new guide for identifying and controlling nonnative invasive plants in Southern forests. Written by Dr. James H. Miller, research ecologist at the SRS Forest Vegetation Management unit in Auburn, AL, (2003-05-30)

UF nutritionist: Better to vow to eat healthy for new year
Instead of vowing to lose weight in the next millennium, a University of Florida nutrition specialist says a better resolution to make at midnight Friday is to promise to treat yourself to a healthier diet. She said a new food people should consider incorporating into their diets is soy, a good source of protein that is rich in vitamins and minerals (2000-01-03)

Tendon complications, though rare, linked to statins
A new study found that, although rare, tendon complications are linked to the use of statins. (2008-02-28)

New Zealand penguins make mammoth migrations, traveling thousands of kilometers to feed
Fiordland penguins, Eudyptes pachyrhynchus, known as Tawaki, migrate up to 2,500 km from their breeding site, according to a study publishing Aug. 29 in the open-access journal PLOS ONE by Thomas Mattern of the University of Otago and colleagues. (2018-08-29)

University of Iowa receives $10.67 million SPORE grant to study NETs
Researchers at the University of Iowa Holden Comprehensive Cancer Center have received the first-ever Specialized Programs of Research Excellence (SPORE) grant to study neuroendocrine tumors. SPORE grants are funded through the National Cancer Institute, part of the National Institutes of Health. (2015-09-14)

What makes triathletes so tough?
Why do triathletes have such remarkable endurance and exceptional athletic abilities? Tel Aviv University researchers have found they may feel less pain than casual exercisers -- and this finding may lead to new therapies for chronic pain in others. (2013-10-07)

UI researchers learn more about how exercise affects the colon
Some runners experience cramps and diarrhea while running, suggesting that colonic activity increases during exercise. However, a University of Iowa Health Care study suggests that for people with less athletic training, progressive exercise like running may instead decrease the normal number of propelling and non-propelling contractions in the colon. (1999-08-18)

Running on rocket fuel
Because African wild dogs face bigger competitors like lions, whose larger stomachs handle large irregular meals, the African wild dog evolved a runner's metabolism (lithe, smaller stomachs) and formed large packs. In packs they reduce costs and ensure a regular supply of food. But in packs less than five, they end up in poverty traps, less well fed, less able to have pups, and spiral downward. This study reveals an extinction risk for social species. (2008-10-20)

Exercise associated with longer life in patients with heart failure
Exercise is associated with a longer life in patients with heart failure, according to research presented today in a late breaking trial session at Heart Failure 2016 and the 3rd World Congress on Acute Heart Failure. The analysis in more than 4,000 patients showed a mortality benefit from exercise regardless of heart failure severity, age and gender. (2016-05-23)

Substance found in fruits and vegetables reduces likelihood of the flu
Mice given quercetin, a naturally occurring substance found in fruits and vegetables, were less likely to contract the flu. The study also found that stressful exercise increased the susceptibility of mice to the flu, but quercetin canceled out that negative effect. Quercetin, a close chemical relative of resveratrol, is present in a variety of fruits and vegetables, including red onions, grapes, blueberries, tea, broccoli and red wine. (2008-09-03)

Exercise may slow progression of ALS
Exercise showed a positive impact on mice, genetically altered to present familial ALS, slowing the disease significantly and converting fast twitch muscle, shown to be more vulnerable to degeneration in ALS patients, to slow twitch muscle. Professor Kelvin Jones at the University of Alberta has won an ALS Canada Discovery Grant to further his research in this area. (2010-06-08)

Gamma-ray photon race ends in dead heat; Einstein wins this round
A pair of gamma-ray photons -- one possessed of a million times the energy of the other -- arrived at virtually the same instant at NASA's orbiting Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope, after a 7.3 billion year race across the universe. Some proponents of alternatives to Einstein's theory of gravity would have predicted that the more energetic would have been much farther behind the less energetic one. They were wrong -- Einstein wins this round. (2009-10-28)

Tweaking a gene makes muscles twice as strong
A team of researchers at EPFL, the University of Lausanne and the Salk Institute created super strong, marathon mice and nematodes by reducing the function of a natural inhibitor, suggesting treatments for age-related or genetically caused muscle degeneration are within reach. (2011-11-10)
