Stanford scholars say big ideas are getting harder to find
Research from Stanford economists finds that productivity has not matched the exponential increases in research development, suggesting the next big idea may be harder to formulate.

Cybercriminals are not as anonymous as we think | University of Oxford
Understanding a cybercriminal's backstory - where they live, what they do and who they know, is key to cracking cybercrime, new research suggests. Online crime is of course online, but there is also a surprisingly strong offline and local dimension. Cybercriminals are often seen as faceless, international, computer masterminds, who are almost impossible to identify or understand as a result.

Deadly heat waves could hit South Asia this century
Deadly heat waves could hit South Asia this century
In South Asia, a region of deep poverty where one-fifth of the world's people live, new research suggests that by the end of this century climate change could lead to summer heat waves with levels of heat and humidity that exceed what humans can survive without protection. There is still time to avert such severe warming if measures are implemented now to reduce the most dire consequences of global warming.

Benefits of dikes outweigh costs - effective measures for reducing future flooding
Benefits of dikes outweigh costs - effective measures for reducing future flooding
In the first study of its kind, an international team of scientists - including the University of Bristol - has concluded, on a global scale, that the economic and long-term benefits of building dikes to reduce flood damage far outweigh their initial cost. They found that in many parts of the world, it is even possible to reduce the economic damage from river floods in the future to below today's levels, even when climate change, growing populations, and urbanisation are taken into account.

Hospitals that spend more on emergency care yield better outcomes
Hospitals that spend more on emergency care yield better outcomes
Hospitals that spend more on initial care following patient emergencies have better outcomes than hospitals that spend less at first and rely more on additional forms of long-term care, according to a new study co-authored by MIT economists. More specifically, hospitals that invest more in inpatient care yield better results, per dollar spent, than those that assign relatively more patients to skilled nursing facilities upon discharge.
