We all know what it’s like to try and lose weight, only to find ourselves gorging on chocolate once the hunger pangs strike.
The adult brain that was awash in alcohol during its formative years looks different and acts differently than an adult brain that skipped the youthful binge drinking, says a new study conducted on rats.
Cannabis use can lead to people remembering things that never happened, according to a new study.
Jamaica just planted its first-ever legal marijuana plant.
Dinosaurs come in all shapes and sizes but there has been nothing quite so unusual as a species found in the Patagonian fossil fields of Chile, scientists have said.
Extinction, it seems, may no longer be for ever. Several weeks ago, scientists in George Church’s lab at Harvard University announced that they had created living elephant cells that contained a small component of synthesised mammoth DNA. The announcement stirred both excitement and concern that the mammoth – a hairier cousin of the Asian elephant – might soon be back from the dead. But how close are we really to seeing resurrected mammoths wandering their old stamping grounds, including the Norfolk countryside? The answer depends on how you define mammoth.
There has long been a debate among scholars about the origins of the first inhabitants of North America. The most widely accepted theory is that sometime before 14,000 years ago, humans migrated from Siberia to Alaska by means of a "land bridge" that spanned the Bering Strait. However, in the 1990s, a small but vocal group of researchers proposed that North America was first settled by Upper Paleolithic people from Europe, who moved from east to west through Greenland via a glacial "ice bridge." Now, researchers at the University of Missouri, working with colleagues the Cleveland Museum of Natural History and elsewhere, have definitively disproved the ice bridge theory.
Antlers from Norwegian reindeer have been unearthed in Ribe, the oldest commercial center in Denmark. The antlers have been dated to A.D. 725, some 70 years before the Viking raid on the Lindisfarne monastery in northern England. “The Viking Age becomes a phenomenon in Western Europe because the Vikings learned to use maritime mobility to their advantage.
Research begins on 1,500 skeletons from medieval and industrial-era London
New research shows that modern humans settled Europe in two waves along distinct routes, coincidentally arriving about the time the Neanderthals disappeared, writes Darren Curnoe.
Britain is experiencing the same decline as Rome in 100BC, with the collapse of civilisation inevitable, a scientist has warned.
The Ministry of Antiquities’ decision to remove artefacts unearthed on the site of Al-Abd Theatre in Alexandria and hand the land over to its original owner triggers a controversy
The small, steep pyramids rising up from the desert hills of northern Sudan resemble those in neighboring Egypt, but unlike the famed pyramids of Giza, the Sudanese site is largely deserted.
The distinctive headgear worn by some of the famous Easter Island statues may have been rolled up ramps to reach those high perches, a new study suggests.
As British police prepare to jet off to some Spanish resorts such as Magaluf in Majorca to help local police deal with drunken Britons, tourism chiefs will hear that there is nothing new about alcohol and drugs after sundown, and modern-day authorities could learn from the ancients about how to manage the resulting bad behaviour.
It is a skill employed by stand-up comedians, politicians and market traders alike – an effortless way with words that can persuade, cajole and tease.
This study comes straight out of our new favorite journal, the aptly named International Journal of Manpower. Here, the author set out to determine whether there’s a relationship between how much money a person earns and how much sex they have. From a survey of 7,500 people, he found that workers who have sex 2-3 times per week earn on average 4.5 percent more than workers who have sex less often. The direction of causality is still unclear (do people have more sex because they make more money, vice versa, or perhaps there are cases of each?). All we know for sure is that we are submitting our next paper to the International Journal of Manpower.
