New quality certification for cloud service providers
New quality certification for cloud service providers
Research news The volume of digital data produced and stored by companies is growing. Cloud technology offers a convenient solution: IT service providers offer storage space or software which enables data to be saved remotely. But how can companies be sure that their data is protected against unauthorized access or deletion? Researchers from the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have studied this issue and developed a model which allows service providers to be checked and certified reliably.

For women fighting the gender pay gap discrimination law is limited
Discrimination law has limited capacity to address the gender pay gap, writes legal expert Alice Orchiston. If women discover they are earning less than their male counterparts for the same jobs, their legal avenues for pursuing equal pay are limited. It's difficult to prove and costly to litigate. The federal Sex Discrimination Act makes it unlawful for an employer to provide less favourable terms and conditions of employment to an employee "because of" that employee's sex.

New exotic phenomena seen in photonic crystals
New exotic phenomena seen in photonic crystals
Topological effects, such as those found in crystals whose surfaces conduct electricity while their bulk does not, have been an exciting topic of physics research in recent years and were the subject of the 2016 Nobel Prize in physics. Now, a team of researchers at MIT and elsewhere has found novel topological phenomena in a different class of systems - open systems, where energy or material can enter or be emitted, as opposed to closed systems with no such exchange with the outside.

Pediatric cancer providers give medical marijuana a cautious thumbs-up
New research by Yale Cancer Center (YCC) researchers shows a majority of pediatric cancer providers endorse the potential use of medical marijuana for children with advanced cancer, although providers who are legally eligible to certify its use are more cautious than those who aren't. The findings also show clinicians would prefer to see much stronger clinical evidence that marijuana treatments can help in relieving symptoms, such as nausea and pain.

New study analyzes recent gun violence research
Consensus is growing in recent research evaluating the impact of right-to-carry concealed handgun laws, showing that they increase violent crime, despite what older research says. Researchers fr­­om Stanford and Duke University examined recent studies on the causes of gun violence in the United States in an effort to find consensus in a body of research that often covers different states or different time periods, making conclusions difficult to draw.

Stereotypes about race and responsibility persist in bankruptcy system
Stereotypes about race and responsibility persist in bankruptcy system
CHAMPAIGN, Ill. — Prior research has established that society appears to accord less forgiveness to African-Americans when they arrive in bankruptcy court: Proceedings take longer, cost more and typically lead to lower levels of debt relief. And according to new research co-written by an interdisciplinary team of University of Illinois experts in psychology and legal studies, practitioners inside the bankruptcy system have little knowledge of the racial disparities that exist, relying instead on common stereotypes about race, responsibility and debt.

100 years on, poet’s "bloodless death" mystery solved
The famed “bloodless death” of a landmark British poet in the Great War has been investigated by experts from the Humanities and Sciences a century after his death, in a new project undertaken at Cardiff University. Biographical and critical works about Edward Thomas (1878 - 1917) often refer to his “bloodless death”, a story that emerged following his death aged just 39 at the Battle of Arras on Easter Monday in 1917.

Care after miscarriage needs ’standardised approach’, report reveals
The standard of care for mothers experiencing the end of a pregnancy varies widely, with more to be done to replicate good practice found in some NHS Trusts and hospitals, according to a new study led by researchers at the Universities of Bristol and Birmingham. The findings are the result of the first stage of Death Before Birth , a two-year study looking at the experience of women who have gone through the potentially traumatic experience of pregnancy loss either through miscarriage or termination for fetal anomaly, or experience of stillbirth.

Researchers publish ’English Votes for English Laws’ monitor
Political scientists from Queen Mary University of London and the University of Cambridge have published a new resource for monitoring 'English Votes for English Laws' (EVEL) in parliament. EVEL was implemented in 2015 to address an anomaly - known as the 'West Lothian Question' - by which Scottish MPs can vote on issues affecting only England - or England and Wales - while English MPs have no such power over Scotland.

Hundred-year-old law on fluid flow overturned by Imperial research
Engineers from Imperial College London have dispelled a 100-year-old scientific law used to describe how fluid flows through rocks. The three 3D models below show fluid flowing through rocks at different microscopic scales. The discovery by researchers from Imperial could lead to a range of improvements including advances in Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS).

Anchoring Labour Rights More Effectively In EU Trade Agreements
Anchoring Labour Rights More Effectively In EU Trade Agreements
Professor Adrian Smith and Dr Liam Campling write for Social Europe about strengthening labour rights in UK and EU trade agreements.  Free trade agreements (FTAs) are growing in number and the inclusion in them of labour provisions seeking to improve working conditions are also increasing. A recent study by the ILO found that over 80 per cent of preferential trade agreements that have come into force since 2013 have included such provisions.

Breaking Newton’s Law
Research news In the quantum world, our intuition for moving objects is strongly challenged and may sometimes even completely fail. An international team of physicists of the Universities of Innsbruck, Paris-Sud and Harvard as well as the Technical University of Munich (TUM) has found a quantum particle which shows an intriguing oscillatory back-and-forth motion in a one-dimensional atomic gas instead of moving uniformly.

Gene matches could aid science, but raise privacy concerns
A new way of connecting distinct sets of DNA markers from the same person could help police trying to catch criminals or scientists looking to collaborate, but it may raise privacy concerns as well. A new study showing how to link distinct sets of genetic data could aid police and scientists but may raise legal questions about the use of forensic DNA.

Flawed forensic science may be hampering identification of human remains
A lot of the older studies only looked at females, but there's men with these scars, so there has to be something else going on. Research from The Australian National University (ANU) has cast doubt on a method used in forensic science to determine whether skeletal remains are of a person who has given birth.

New Research Could Help Humans See What Nature Hides
In order for people to pick out an object against a background, the object must differ from the background by a ‘just noticeable difference,' researchers said. AUSTIN, Texas - Things are not always as they appear. New visual perception research at The University of Texas at Austin, published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, explains the natural limits of what humans can see and how to find what nature hides.

Family court transparency
New research from Cardiff University's School of Law and Politics suggests that guidance given to judges to routinely publish their judgments is not being consistently followed, leaving the public with a patchy understanding of the family justice system in England and Wales. Issued in 2014, the guidance was intended to address perceptions, especially in the media, of ‘secrecy' and ‘justice behind closed doors' when important decisions are made about children in family courts.
