Halszkaraptor escuilliei: Bizarre New Dinosaur Was a Mix of Aquatic Bird and Theropod
Paleontologists have discovered what they say is a completely unexpected semi-aquatic theropod dinosaur that lived 75 million years ago in what is now Mongolia. The new dinosaur, named Halszkaraptor escuilliei, is a strange new anomaly in the dinosaur world. It walked on two legs on land, with postural adaptations similar to short-tailed birds (like ducks), [...]

New Research Shows Black Holes Have Significantly Weaker Magnetic Fields than Originally Thought
A sudden flare from a low-mass black hole in the binary system V404 Cygni has offered astrophysicists a unique opportunity to make precise measurements of the black hole’s magnetic field, finding it weaker than expected. The results appear in the journal Science. Observations of black holes consuming material ripped from a nearby star reveal that [...]

Yoga may have health benefits for people with chronic non-specific lower back pain
A new systematic review, published in the Cochrane Library today, suggests that yoga may lead to a reduction in pain and functional ability in people with chronic non-specific lower back pain over the short term, compared with no exercise. However, researchers advise that more studies are needed to provide information on long-term effects.

Study first to connect stress-associated brain activity with cardiovascular risk
A study led by Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) and Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai (ISSMS) investigators has linked, for the first time in humans, activity in a stress-sensitive structure within the brain to the risk of subsequent cardiovascular disease. The team's findings, being published in the journal The Lancet, also reveals a pathway leading from activation of that structure—the amygdala—through elevated immune system activity to an increased incidence of cardiovascular events.

Revolutionizing electronics using Kirigami
A research team has developed an ultrastretchable bioprobe using a 'Kirigami' designs. The Kirigami-based bioprobe enables one to follow the shape of spherical and large deformable biological samples such as heart and brain tissues. In addition, its low strain-force characteristic reduces the force induced on organs, thereby enabling minimally invasive biological signal recording.
