9 Scientifically Proven Ways to Prevent Motion Sickness
http://mentalfloss.com/article/78131/9-scientifically-proven-ways-prevent-motion-sickness
“Feeling dizzy, nauseated, and uncomfortable is never fun, especially when you’re traveling. Caused by sensory confusion—your eyes and inner ears get conflicting signals about the movement going on around you—motion sickness can affect anyone, in any type of moving vehicle.”

Here's What Emergency Medicine Will Look Like for Astronauts in Space
https://www.seeker.com/space/heres-what-emergency-medicine-will-look-like-for-astronauts-in-space
“If an emergency medical situation arises during a crewed trip to Mars, odds are that the astronauts helping out will have little medical training. Making things even more challenging, the astronauts will be far from home working only with the limited supplies on board — a task that would be difficult for even experienced doctors.”

NASA Announces New Class of Astronaut Trainees
https://www.seeker.com/space/exploration/nasa-announces-new-class-of-astronaut-trainees
"As American astronauts, you may yet return our nation to the moon. You may be the first to travel to Mars. You may have experiences that we can only imagine." The 12 new candidates include six military officers, three scientists, two medical doctors, a lead engineer at SpaceX and a NASA research pilot.

Scientists have identified two new genetic connections to homosexuality. Does this confirm that there are predisposed sexual orientations?

What do the new ‘gay genes’ tell us about sexual orientation?
https://www.newscientist.com/article/2155810-what-do-the-new-gay-genes-tell-us-about-sexual-orientation/
“Two gene variants have been found to be more common in gay men, adding to mounting evidence that sexual orientation is at least partly biologically determined. For the first time, individual genes have been identified that may influence how sexual orientation develops in boys and men, both in the womb and during life.”

Where Is It Illegal To Be Gay?
https://www.seeker.com/where-is-it-illegal-to-be-gay-1915471441.html
“There are many places in the world where it's illegal to be gay. In fact, according to the U.N., homosexuality is a crime in at least 75 countries, 13 of which impose the death penalty for homosexual acts. Anti-gay laws are most pervasive in Africa and the Middle East.”

Study of gay brothers may confirm X chromosome link to homosexuality
http://www.sciencemag.org/news/2014/11/study-gay-brothers-may-confirm-x-chromosome-link-homosexuality
“Dean Hamer finally feels vindicated. More than 20 years ago, in a study that triggered both scientific and cultural controversy, the molecular biologist offered the first direct evidence of a “gay gene,” by identifying a stretch on the X chromosome likely associated with homosexuality. But several subsequent studies called his finding into question.”

Discovery of the Electron
http://www.pbs.org/transistor/science/events/electron.html
“Scientists worked with electricity long before they understood that current was made of electrons. The cathode tube was a prime example, no one knew how it worked. Some thought the rays were a wave traveling through a mysterious "ether" which they thought permeated all space.”

Who was Democritus?
https://www.universetoday.com/60058/democritus-atom/
“One such person is Democritus, an ancient Greek philosopher who is viewed by many as being the ‘father of modern science.’ This is due to his theory of universe that is made up of tiny ‘atoms’, which bears a striking resemblance to modern atomic theory.”

Thales of Miletus
http://www.iep.utm.edu/thales/
“The ancient Greek philosopher Thales was born in Miletus in Greek Ionia. Aristotle, the major source for Thales's philosophy and science, identified Thales as the first person to investigate the basic principles, the question of the originating substances of matter and, therefore, as the founder of the school of natural philosophy.”

“The goal isn’t to help surfers monitor their surf sessions. Instead, they are aiming to gather data for studies of the coastal zone. They hope to distribute the fins widely enough to provide valuable data for researchers who track the health of sea life–rich reefs and kelp forests or monitor coral bleaching, the mixing of atmospheric gases by breaking waves, riptides, pollutants, and, over time, the ocean’s absorption of heat from global warming.”

“Have you ever wondered what would happen if the Earth stopped spinning? You can probably guess that it would not result in anything good, in fact, it would be disastrous. If the Earth stopped spinning suddenly, most people on Earth would die. If the Earth slowed down gradually, it would be absolutely devastating, but there is a chance some people could survive.”

As such, batteries are changing too. Researchers at the University of California, Berkeley have developed a new kind of stretchy battery specifically designed for wearable devices and clothing that require more flexibility than old-school electronics.”

And the age of the teeth would be over 9 million years older than when anatomically modern humans are thought to have migrated out of Africa.”

“The baculum, also called the os penis or penis bone, is a puzzling thing. It sits in the tip of the organ, not connected to any larger skeletal structure. Your pet cat has one if it is a he, as does your male dog. Many male mammals do — chimpanzees, gorillas, weasels and bears.”
