red meat
Consumption of red meat has long been linked to the development of certain types of cancer. Now scientists believe they’ve found the culprit behind red meat’s carcinogenic effects. A new study reports that a sugar molecule found in the flesh of beef, lamb and pork could be triggering an immune response in humans that causes inflammation, which ultimately contributes to tumor growth. Long-term exposure to this sugar in mice caused a five-fold increase in their chances of developing cancer. Not So Sweet Sugar Humans are the only carnivores that face an increased risk of cancer as a result of eating...

Fast forward a few years that computing power can now be found in devices that fit in the palm of your hand. To prove that point, Aspyr Media, Inc. has released the full Knights of the Old Republic game for Android devices. For those who never played Knights of the Old Republic in the past, the story takes place 4,000 years before the events revealed in the Star Wars movies. Players find...

As we close on 2014, and approach 2015, it doesn’t hurt to take a step back and reflect on what was accomplished and what didn’t work out so well during the year. 2014, without a doubt, showed off some great new tech like Android Wear, and virtual reality is finally showing tangible signs of life. Even Apple decided to finally do something new (for itself) and make a reasonable phone size. 2014, as it’s winding down, is also showing some rather dangerous indications of what might be in store for Android OEMs in 2015. Sharp declines in sales, market stagnation...

The new year is approaching and that means new devices are incoming. Huawei is among the many companies that are expected to introduce new hardware early next year. An image of an alleged Huawei handset appeared on Weibo. It is believed to be the Ascend Mate 7 Plus because of how it resembles the original Ascend Mate 7. The word “Plus” is included because everything is, surprise, larger. The rear speaker is elongated for example. The color and shaping is nearly identical to the Ascend Mate 7.

Think that sparrow whistling outside your bedroom window is nothing more than pleasant background noise?  A new paper from a researcher at MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) suggests that we can apply what we know about songbirds to our understanding of human speech production — and, therefore, come closer to identifying and potentially even reducing the prevalence of disorders like stuttering and Huntington’s Disease. In a paper published in Science this month, CSAIL postdoc Andreas Pfenning and collaborators at Duke University compared genetic maps of brain tissue from three groups: humans, vocal-learning birds, and non-vocal-learning birds and primates. Their...

The United States is often described as a cultural melting pot. The degree to which that’s true socially can be debated – and, at least as regards to race, it has been debated lots lately. But another way to look at that question could be to examine the mixing in Americans’ genetic ancestry. And that’s just what researchers at 23andMe, a genomics and biotech company, have done. Their analysis of 160,000 Americans revealed subtle differences in genetic ancestry as it relates to race across the United States.

Cited for her “leadership and contributions across many fields of science and engineering,” Dresselhaus is also the first woman to earn the prestigious award. When she worked at MIT Lincoln Laboratory’s Solid State Division in 1960, Dresselhaus was given the freedom to select her research focus. She chose carbon, with the goal of discovering how it acts at the most fundamental levels. Dresselhaus joined MIT’s Department of Electrical Engineering in 1967 and added an appointment to the Department of...
