’Molecular hopper’ created, small enough to move single DNA strands
Researchers from the University of Oxford have constructed a "molecular hopper", capable of moving single strands of DNA through a protein nanotube. The tiny hopper works by making and breaking in sequence simple chemical bonds that attach it to a nanoscale track. This can be turned on, off or reversed by a small electrical potential, which ultimately might make it suitable for use in nanopore DNA sequencing devices.

Harris scholar fights to reform property tax system
In 2015, if you'd asked property tax expert Christopher Berry about the work he did for the Cook County Assessor's Office, he would have said it was "a textbook example of how to do policy reform." The Assessor's Office determines the value of properties in the county. But James Houlihan, the office's leader at the time Berry began his work, knew that some of those assessments were flawed.

Infrared Beams Show Cell Types in a Different Light
Infrared Beams Show Cell Types in a Different Light
By shining highly focused infrared light on living cells, scientists at the U.S. Department of Energy's Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) hope to unmask individual cell identities, and to diagnose whether the cells are diseased or healthy. They will use their technique to produce detailed, color-based maps of individual cells and collections of cells - in microscopic and eventually nanoscale detail - that will be analyzed using machine-learning techniques to automatically sort out cell characteristics.

In neutron stars, protons may do the heavy lifting
Neutron stars are the smallest, densest stars in the universe, born out of the gravitational collapse of extremely massive stars. True to their name, neutron stars are composed almost entirely of neutrons - neutral subatomic particles that have been compressed into a small, incredibly dense celestial package.

Unmotivated people benefit more from giving advice than receiving it
People struggling with motivation will benefit more from giving advice than receiving it, although most people predict the opposite to be true, according to new research from the University of Chicago Booth School of Business. In a forthcoming paper in Psychological Science ,  Prof. Ayelet Fishbach and the University of Pennsylvania's Lauren Eskries-Winkler and Angela Duckworth find that people struggling to achieve goals incorrectly assumed that they needed expert advice to succeed, when in fact they were better helped by doling out advice.
