HIV Infection Still On The Rise

...million children, are now infected with HIV, and a record 4.8 million became infected in 2003.

Scientists find fossil proof of Egypt's ancient climate

...one scrapers and blades. "The artifacts provide a record that people were coming to the lake," said Smith. "Genetic evidence suggests that 100,000 to 400,000 years ago was a critical time in the evolution and dispersal of African hominins. Our climate data from this 130,000-year-old humid event suggest tha...

Implanted Devices Detect High-Risk Heart Failure Patients

...nsight from CRT-D devices is possible because they record detailed data on heart function 24 hours a day. These new findings are important for two reasons, the researchers said. First, the collected information appears to more accurately identify high risk patients who would benefit from early and aggressi...

"Salt levels in the runoff wetland reach peaks that are half as salty as sea water," Silver told attendees at the North American Benthological Meeting today (May 24) at the 2005 Joint Assembly in New Orleans. "We recorded peaks duri...

Discovery clarifies role of peptide in biological clock

...N cells, a "clock in a dish." This enabled them to record data from many cells for many days. "We found that the VIP mutants, indeed, can generate circadian rhythms, but the neurons can't synchronize to each other," Herzog said. "We showed that we could restore rhythms to the arrhythmic neurons and synchro...
