Arsenic in private well water contributes to low birth weight even at low levels
In the largest epidemiologic study of arsenic and birth outcomes to date, researchers from the University of Illinois Chicago and collaborating institutions estimated arsenic levels in U.S. private well water sources by county and compared estimates to documented birth outcomes. They found an association between estimated groundwater arsenic concentration and risk of low birth weight.

In colorful avian world, hummingbirds rule
Yale ornithologist Richard Prum has spent years studying the molecules and nanostructures that give many bird species their rich colorful plumage, but nothing prepared him for what he found in hummingbirds. The range of colors in the plumage of hummingbirds exceeds the color diversity of all other bird species in total, Prum and a team of researchers report June 23 in the journal Communications Biology.

Researchers invent Bluetooth that keeps on working even if power runs out
Internet of Things now possible without batteries or continuous power, thanks to the invention of 'intermittently-powered bluetooth' FreeBie If it were up to TU Delft researchers Jasper de Winkel and Przemyslaw Pawelczak, the future of the Internet of Things (IoT) would be one without batteries. They have now added energy-efficient two-way communication via intermittently-powered Bluetooth to their arsenal for trouble-free IoT communication, even if the energy runs out for a while.

2021 heat wave created 'perfect storm' for shellfish die-off
2021 heat wave created ’perfect storm’ for shellfish die-off
It's hard to forget the excruciating heat that blanketed the Pacific Northwest in late June 2021. Temperatures in Oregon, Washington and British Columbia soared to well above 100 degrees Fahrenheit, with Seattle setting an all-time heat record of 108 degrees on June 28. During the heat wave, also called a heat dome, scientists and community members alike noticed a disturbing uptick of dying and dead shellfish on some beaches in Washington and British Columbia, both in the Salish Sea and along the outer coast.

The power of chance
The power of chance
Life is constantly evolving, and yet "progress" is not the right word for this process of organismal change, says evolutionary geneticist Jochen Wolf. A chasm of more than three-and-a-half billion years separates the beginnings of life from today's abundant biological diversity. Virtually all environments on Earth - even the supposedly most inhospitable ones such as Antarctica or the ocean depths - are inhabited by living organisms.
