Don't trust Millennials for chocolates: Study

According to a new study when it comes to chocolates, Millennials also known as the Millennial Generation can't be trusted, as they say something else and do exactly the opposite.

Kansas State University researchers have found that the majority of millennials may not be putting their money where their mouths are while selecting a chocolate.

Despite strong preferences for ethical chocolate in focus groups, only 14 percent of millennials in individual choice studies selected candy with ethical or social factors.

Now, you can broadcast messages to stars

Now, you can broadcast messages to stars

According to a new study, now people can broadcast their messages to stars through artistic space odyssey.

Researchers from University of Edinburgh have revealed that in autumn 2016, dispatches from the public will be converted into radio waves and will be broadcasted towards the North Star, Polaris, this autumn, reaching their destination in 434 years.

The interstellar message in a bottle will comprise of people's responses to a single question: how will our present environmental interactions shape the future?

`Innate teaching skills` component of human nature

`Innate teaching skills` component of human nature

A new study has revealed that innate teaching skills are an unknown part of human nature.

Lead researcher and Washington State University anthropologist Barry Hewlett has found that teaching in formal education is a way different than the way it used to prevail in small-scale groups that he had worked with.

However, cognitive psychologists and evolutionary biologists suggested that this teaching is universal. Hewlett was particularly intrigued by the thinking of cognitive psychologists like Gyorgy Gergely of Central European University.

Traffic air pollution can develop facial Lentigines: Study

Traffic air pollution can develop facial Lentigines: Study

A new study has revealed a connection between the levels of traffic-related air pollution and air pollution-associated gases which result in the formation of dark spots on the skin, known as Lentigines.

Lead researcher Jean Krutmann, MD, of the IUF-Leibniz Research Institute for Environmental Medicine, Dusseldorf, Germany said the traffic-related air pollution is characterized by increased concentration of nitrogen dioxide
(NO2). While NO2 exposure is known to be associated with low lung function and lung cancer, the effect of NO2 on human skin has never been investigated.

Planets similar to earth have identical interiors

Planets similar to earth have identical interiors

A new research has suggested that like earth other rocky planets also have a thin outer crust, a thick mantle and a Mars-sized core.

Lead author Li Zeng of the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics said that they wanted to see how Earth-like these rocky planets are and it turns out that they are very Earth-like.

To reach this conclusion Zeng and his co-authors applied a computer model known as the Preliminary Reference Earth Model
(PREM), which is the standard model for Earth's interior.

Researchers identify drug target for dengue virus

Researchers identify drug target for dengue virus

Till date no vaccine or drug has yet become available against the Dengue virus.

A flavivirus like the newly prominent Zika virus, Dengue has become a leading cause of serious illness and death in some Asian and Latin American countries.

Investigators from the American Society for Microbiology have data suggesting that a protein in dengue virus that goes by the scientific name, NS4B, would make a promising target for antiviral drug development.

The magic trick of Saturn's rings

The magic trick of Saturn's rings

According to a recent study, Saturn's rings have been playing tricks on us by creating an optical illusion.

Experts have analyzed the mass of Saturn's rings and found that they are thinner than anticipated, the Mirror reported.

Viewed from particular angles, the rings appear far less densely populated with debris that first though. NASA said that muddier water has more suspended particles of dirt in it than clearer water.

A `fishy` way to shed those extra kilos

A `fishy` way to shed those extra kilos

Seafood lovers, this "fishy" way of losing weight is going to make you fall in love with it hook, line and sinker!

A team of researchers has found that fish oil transforms fat-storage cells into fat-burning cells, which may reduce weight gain in middle age.

The Kyoto University researchers explained that fish oil activates receptors in the digestive tract, fires the sympathetic nervous system, and induces storage cells to metabolize fat.

New `dog IQ test` paves way for health research

New `dog IQ test` paves way for health research

A newly-developed IQ test for dogs, which can help you find out whether or not your pooch is a canine Einstein, could pave the way for breakthroughs in our understanding of the link between intelligence and health.

The Edinburgh University researchers have discovered that dog intelligence works in the same way as human intelligence, the Mirror reported.

Recent studies have shown that brighter people tend to live longer, and so scientists believe if they can prove the same is true in dogs they can use them to study long-term health problems such as dementia.

High-dose statin treatment can help restore sight

High-dose statin treatment can help restore sight

A common cholesterol-lowering drug statin can restore vision in the patients with a hard-to-treat version of the leading cause of blindness in the developed world, according to a new research.

Researchers at Massachusetts Eye and Ear/Harvard Medical School and the University of Crete have conducted a phase I/II clinical trial investigating the efficacy of statins for the treatment of patients with the dry form of age-related macular degeneration (AMD).
