  1. How to feed the world by 2050? Recent breakthrough boosts plant growth by 40 percent
    Recent advances to address hunger through agricultural advancement have been shown to boost crop growth by 40 percent by creating a shortcut for a glitch that plagues most food crops.
  2. Drinking contexts associated with early onset of alcohol intoxication among adolescents
    New research has begun to identify the circumstances by examining relationships between early age of first intoxication (less than 15 years), drinking in different contexts such as one's own home, at friends' homes, or outdoor settings, and problems that arise in those contexts.
  3. Engineered metasurfaces reflect waves in unusual directions
    Researchers have developed new metasurfaces for the arbitrary manipulation of reflected waves, essentially breaking classical reflection law to engineer it at will.
  4. PET/CT imaging agent shows promise for better diagnosis of acute venous thromboembolism
    Researchers report that a new nuclear medicine tracer may allow better diagnosis of acute venous thromboembolism (VTE). Acute VTE is a disease that includes deep-vein thrombosis and its complication, pulmonary embolism, which can be fatal.
  5. Push-up capacity linked with lower incidence of cardiovascular disease events among men
    Active, middle-aged men able to complete more than 40 push-ups had a significantly lower risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD) outcomes -- including diagnoses of coronary artery disease and major events such as heart failure -- during 10 years of follow-up compared with those who were able to do less than 10 push-ups during the baseline exam.
