Lawsuit follows similar ones challenging new Biden administration rules for federal contractors and large businessesA coalition of 10 states sued the federal government on Wednesday to try to block a Covid-19 vaccine requirement for healthcare workers, marking a new front in the resistance by Republican-led states to the pandemic policies of President Joe Biden’s administration.The lawsuit...
Pay-for-performance incentives may put innovation at risk
How did the largest animals to ever walk the Earth dominate their environments? By doing something totally revolutionary: keeping it simple. Published in BMC Ecology and Evolution, a new study led by Postdoctoral Research Scientist and periodic dinosaur dentist Dr. Keegan Melstrom at the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County's Dinosaur Institute reveals that colossal sauropod dinosaurs, the...
Inputs and impacts of human wastewater in coastal ecosystems
Managers looking to create social conditions that lead to open, diversified and large networks—which are known to spur innovation—should avoid implementing pay-for-performance incentives that rest on short-term and quantitative performance metrics. According to new research published in Strategic Management Journal, such pay incentives result in more closed and smaller networks in...

'Tug of war' between cells – When crucial connections are missing
The tendency for most of us when it comes to human wastewater is out of sight, out of mind. Rarely do we consider what happens after we flush that toilet or turn off that tap. However, researchers have turned their attention and considerable computational power to the subject and its impacts on global coastal ecosystems. The results aren't pretty, but they are enlightening.

Whole genome sequencing could save NHS millions of pounds, study suggests
The ability of cells to move together in harmony is crucial for numerous biological processes in our body, for example, wound healing, or the healthy development of an organism. This movement is made possible by the connections between individual cells. A research team has shown that particularly close connections -- 'tight junctions' -- play an important role in cell movement. In addition,...
Disclosures on auditor firings are useless in forecasting restatement trouble, study shows
Genomics England and NHS England findings highlight benefits of using WGS to help detect rare diseasesThe use of whole genome sequencing could save the NHS millions of pounds, a study suggests, after it found a quarter of people with rare illnesses received a diagnosis for their condition through the technology.In some cases, the findings have provided reassurance for families that they have not...
Improve recycling compliance by using this technique in public service announcements
Mandatory Securities and Exchange Commission disclosures about the reasons behind auditor firings are useless for assessing whether restatement trouble lies ahead for the company, according to new research from the University of Notre Dame.
At Roland-Garros, tennis is now on the cloud, powered by applied AI
A specific messaging strategy used in a public service announcement (PSA) video can effectively encourage New Yorkers who struggle with recycling compliance to properly separate their trash from recycling, according to the results of a University at Buffalo study.
Humans are guilty of breaking an oceanic law of nature: study
Thank you for joining us on “The cloud hub: From cloud chaos to cloud clarity.” We hope you enjoy this article.
Michael Tonge, director of partnerships, hospitality, and ticketing, French Tennis Federation, talks about how they have redefined the experience for fans, players, and broadcast partners using the cloud.

SpaceX aims for night crew launch; ailing astronaut now OK
A new international study carried out by the Institute of Environmental Science and Technology of the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (ICTA-UAB) has examined the distribution of biomass across all life in the oceans, from bacteria to whales. Their quantification of human impact reveals a fundamental alteration to one of life's largest scale patterns.
Methane's short lifespan presents golden opportunity to quickly address climate change
SpaceX counted down Wednesday toward a nighttime launch of four astronauts who have been grounded for nearly two weeks by weather and medical delays.
Student's research upends understanding of upper atmospheric wind
Sébastien Biraud is a Berkeley Lab scientist leading an effort to identify and mitigate some of the largest emitters of methane in California's Southern San Joaquin Valley. Methane is a short-lived air pollutant and greenhouse gas capable of warming the atmosphere about 80 times as fast as the far longer-lived carbon dioxide over 20 years. This month the U.S. and European Union launched the...
Competing quantum interactions enable single molecules to stand up
Space physicist Mark Conde had been seeing something curious in his atmospheric research data since the 1990s.
Researchers puncture explanation for largest increase of biodiversity in Earth's history
Nanoscale machinery has many uses, including drug delivery, single-atom transistor technology, or memory storage. However, the machinery must be assembled at the nanoscale, which is a considerable challenge for researchers.
'Tug of war' between cells: What happens when crucial connections are missing
In a geological period 469 million years ago known as the Ordovicium Period, Earth's seas were inhabited by animals like trilobites (reminiscent of pillbugs), conodonts (eel-like vertebrates) and brachiopods (animals with two-part shells reminiscent of seashells).
Female bushbabies are more stressed, may be more vulnerable to changing environment
The ability of cells to move together in harmony is crucial for numerous biological processes in our body, for example wound healing, or the healthy development of an organism. This movement is made possible by the connections between individual cells. These connections, in turn, are established by various protein molecules which transfer the necessary forces and information between neighboring...
New space telescope to peer back at the universe's first galaxies
A new study has explored the yearly routine of a small primate called the thick-tailed greater galago (Otolemur crassicaudatus), discovering that females may be under a lot more stress than males.
Researchers may have unlocked function of mysterious structure found on neurons
On Dec. 18, NASA is set to launch its next flagship mission into space. The spacecraft, called the James Webb Space Telescope, brings a lot of risks: Its roughly 270-square-foot mirror, which will collect light streaming in from the far reaches of space, will launch folded up inside a rocket, then unfurl far from Earth.
What would expanding the EU's emissions trading system mean for consumers and climate goals?
For 30 years, mysterious clusters of proteins found on the cell body of neurons in the hippocampus, a part of the brain, both intrigued and baffled James Trimmer.
Catching the fog as it rolls in for more fresh water
The European Union's Emissions Trading System (ETS) is one of the world's largest carbon markets. A new paper, published today in the journal Economics of Energy & Environmental Policy, considers the benefits, costs, and policy design options of making it even bigger.
Deep-frying sounds reveal oil temperature and the path to a perfect snack
In the Namib desert—one of the driest places in the world—a tiny species of beetle climbs the dunes, leans its body toward the wind, and catches the only source of water it can: passing droplets of fog.
