Links between deprivation and risk of violence-related injury
Adolescent girls from deprived areas are at greater risk of interpersonal violence than girls from more affluent areas because they feel distrusted by their parents, suggests a study by Cardiff University. Lead author of the study and Director of the Violence Research Group at Cardiff University, Professor Jonathan Shepherd, said: “We discovered that deprivation makes adolescent girls six times more likely to suffer violence-related injury than girls in affluent areas.

Budget cigarettes linked to higher infant mortality rates in EU countries
Budget cigarettes linked to higher infant mortality rates in EU countries
A study of 23 EU countries found that larger price differences between high and low priced cigarettes are associated with higher infant mortality. Scientists already know that high cigarette prices reduce smoking rates , and that levels of smoking affect infant mortality. However until now, there have been no studies to explore the link between cigarette price differentials and infant mortality.

Step towards better ’beyond lithium’ batteries
A step towards new "beyond lithium" rechargeable batteries with superior performance has been made by researchers at the University of Bath. We increasingly rely on rechargeable batteries for a host of essential uses; from mobile phones and electric cars to electrical grid storage. At present this demand is taken up by lithium-ion batteries.

A new approach to ultrafast light pulses
Two-dimensional materials called molecular aggregates are very effective light emitters that work on a different principle than typical organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs) or quantum dots. But their potential as components for new kinds of optoelectronic devices has been limited by their relatively slow response time.

Private equity firms show resilience in a downturn, Stanford scholar finds
Stanford scholar Shai Bernstein explored the impact of private equity firms during the financial crisis of 2008 and found that they appeared to be helpful rather than harmful amid the economic turmoil. The banking system bore plenty of scrutiny for its part in the financial crisis of 2008. But what was the impact of other financial entities' Did they dampen or exacerbate financial fragility during the Great Recession? Stanford scholar Shai Bernstein finds that private equity-backed companies invested aggressively and grew fast, relative to peer companies, during the 2008 financial crisis.
