People with ovarian cancer frequently receive aggressive end-of-life care despite industry guidelines that emphasize quality of life for those with advanced disease, according to a recent study.
Reclamation releases the 2021 SECURE Water Act technical reports and interactive web tool that assess climate change impacts on Western water supplies. It also includes seven individual Basin Reports that detail each of the significant Reclamation River Basins: Colorado River, Columbia River, Klamath River, Missouri River, Rio Grande, Sacramento and San Joaquin Rivers, and the Truckee River.
A new study, published in Plant Direct, has shown that ozone in the lower layers of the atmosphere decreases crop yields in maize and changes the types of chemicals that are found inside the leaves.
Researchers lengthen the lifetime of a dipolar molecule to almost three and a half seconds, a luxury of time during which they maintained the full quantum control necessary for stable qubits, the building blocks for a wide variety of exciting quantum applications.
An assessment of 12 different strategies for reducing beef production emissions worldwide found that industry can reduce greenhouse gas emissions by as much as 50% in certain regions, with the most potential in the United States and Brazil.
Research from Northwestern Medicine shows nearly two-thirds of males and more than one-third of females with one or more existing psychiatric disorders when they entered detention, still had a disorder 15 years later. The findings are significant because mental health struggles add to the existing racial, ethnic and economic disparities as well as academic challenges from missed school, making a successful transition to adulthood harder to attain.
Overfishing likely did not cause the Atlantic cod, an iconic species, to evolve genetically and mature earlier, according to a study led by Rutgers University and the University of Oslo - the first of its kind - with major implications for ocean conservation.
Without restoration efforts in coastal Louisiana, marshes in the state could lose half of their current ability to store carbon in the soil over a period of 50 years, according to a new paper published in AGU JGR Biogeosciences.
"Near-poor" Americans - people just above the federal poverty level but still well below the average U.S. income - who rely on Medicare for health insurance face high medical bills and may forgo essential health care, according to new research led by health policy scientists at the University of Pittsburgh Graduate School of Public Health. This is due to a coverage "cliff" in Medicaid, which supplements Medicare for people with incomes below poverty but excludes individuals above the federal poverty threshold, including the near-poor.
As the world awaits the upcoming Olympic games, a new method for detecting doping compounds in urine samples could level the playing field for those trying to keep athletics clean. Now, scientists report an approach using ion mobility-mass spectrometry to help regulatory agencies detect existing dopants and future "designer" compounds. The researchers will present their results today at ACS Spring 2021.
