Superflares may be less harmful to exoplanets than previously thought
Astronomers have long suspected that superflares, extreme radiation bursts from stars, can cause lasting damage to the atmospheres - and thus habitability - of exoplanets. A new study published Aug. 5 in the Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society reports that they pose only a limited danger to planetary systems.

Women voice frustration over current care for recurrent urinary tract infections
Women with frequent urinary tract infections say they're unhappy with what they perceive as their doctors' overuse of antibiotics and with the limited treatment options available to them, according to a study led by researchers from UCLA and Cedars-Sinai. The research, recently published in the Journal of Urology, highlights the need for physicians to do a better job finding out why patients get recurrent UTIs, to develop strategies to prevent them and to avoid the unnecessary use of antibiotics, which over time can lead to resistance to the medication.

New satellite data reveal increasing proportion of world's population exposed to floods
New satellite data reveal increasing proportion of world’s population exposed to floods
New research used direct satellite observations of floods to reveal that the proportion of the world's population exposed to floods has grown by 24% since the turn of the century-10 times higher than scientists previously thought-due to both increased flooding and population migration. This marks an increase of population inside flood-prone regions of up to 86 million people, according to a team of researchers led by scientists at Cloud to Street, a global flood tracking and risk analytics company for disaster managers and insurers.

Salmonella: Intestinal flora as reason for asymptomatic disease progression
Salmonella infections can result in a broad spectrum of illnesses. According to the latest research findings, one reason why some cases are harmless while others are very severe lies in the intestinal flora. An infection with Salmonella can have very different consequences. While some infected people do not notice the infection with the bacteria at all - this is called an asymptomatic progression - others suffer from severe gastrointestinal complaints.
