Physicists managed to measure the gravitational deformation of time on a scale of one millimeter
The passage of time, unlike how most people imagine it, is far from a constant value — it is known that an increase in the forces of gravity slows down the passage of time. Because of this, the clocks on the Earth's surface will go a little slower than the same clocks placed in near-Earth orbit, and a person living in a penthouse will age a little faster than a person living on the first floor of the sa...
Protect linguistic diversity on International Mother Language Day
The head of the UN’s educational and cultural agency, UNESCO, has called for defending linguistic and cultural diversity in her message to mark International Mother Language Day on Monday.  Audrey Azoulay, the UNESCO Director-General, highlighted how four out of 10 children worldwide do not have access to education in the language they speak or understand best, meaning the foundation for their learning is ...
Study probes how DNA folding might affect gene activity
Russian researchers from Skoltech, the Institute of Molecular Genetics of NRC Kurchatov Institute, Lomonosov Moscow State University, and elsewhere have clarified the mechanism behind the activation of genes in drosophila fly sex cells transitioning between two early stages in spermatozoid development. A similar mechanism makes the cells in our body — in the muscles, nerves, liver, etc. — different from eac...

Jurassic Long-Necked Dinosaur Suffered from Aspergillosis-Like Respiratory Infection
The pulmonary disease infecting this diplodocine dinosaur, nicknamed ‘Dolly,’ would not been externally evident, but the probable pneumonia-like outward symptoms would have included coughing, labored breathing, nasal discharge, fever, and weight loss among others. It is the first known case of an avian-style pulmonary infectious disease in a non-avian dinosaur. Dolly is an immature dinosaur that lived appr...
Future drugs will disable the "protein pumps" of the causative agent of tuberculosis
Scientists from the N. I. Vavilov Institute of General Genetics of the Russian Academy of Sciences, Peoples' Friendship University of Russia and South Ural State University, together with colleagues from the University of the Western Cape Province (South Africa), have proposed drugs that block bacterial pump proteins that can literally throw medicine out of the cell. Although these substances themselves are...
New environmental report offers solutions for ‘triple planetary crisis’
Deadly wildfires, noise pollution and other looming environmental threats could cause widespread ecological damage, and need to be urgently addressed, the UN Environment Programme (UNEP) said in a new report published on Thursday. “The Frontiers Report identifies and offers solutions to three environmental issues that merit attention and action from governments and the public at large,” said UNEP Executive...
