I read an article on how psychologists have found that lying actually affects your brain! It has been proven that when you lie you use your prefrontal cortex, a region of your brain that is in charge of your working memory, and this use causes executive functions to come into play. Most lies do not affect this, but “lifespan lies” do. For example, spies have to lie about who they are for most of their lives. Over time this causes you to actually use up your brain cells for lying instead of using them for thinking.

A treatment using CAR-T cells put five people suffering with lupus into remission. Lupus is an autoimmune disease, meaning the immune system attacks healthy cells along with the unhealthy ones. A study showed that soon after being given the treatment, all five participants saw their symptoms disappear. This could be a miraculous cure for autoimmune diseases.

I read an article about Uncombable Hair Syndrome. It turns out that after scientists did research they discovered that it is from a gene. The gene is called PADI3. The hair shaft formation is where this gene can be found. Two other genes have been researched. These genes are called: TGM3 and TCHH. This disorder is something that children will grow out of and that does not affect any other part of their health. This is a very interesting disorder that I have never heard of but it is nothing that anyone should have to worry about.

Research:I read an article about music’s effects on the brain. It explained that music has an effect on our emotions through the amount of sounds waves produced in the music. It also talked about how people who may speak a different language or have a brain disorder depict music/pitch through the sound waves made by instruments.

I did research on a poliovirus outbreak in New York. The study showed that on September 13th there was an identification in July of a case of paralytic polio in an unvaccinated adult in Rockland County in New York. Then, the governor declared access to a polio vaccine statewide. This is a certain type of polio spreading in America alongside 30 other countries.

I read and researched into the math of grilling a hamburger. From the article, I learned that the more a burger is flipped the faster it cooks. After many studies performed by scientists, its proven that frequent flipping decreases the amount of time needed to full cook the burger by 29%. The article suggests even flipping it every 15 seconds to decrease the time by one- third.

I looked up, researched, and read an article about the history of mathematics. It all first started with a Sumerian child who lived in Nippur and started writing a multiplication table on a clay tablet. As times got older many discovered devices to help calculate. The oldest working calculating device is known as the Salamis Tablet, it is a marble counting board from the Greek island of Salamis dating back to 300 B.C. That was almost 2 322 years ago.

I am reading an article about new findings in moving electricity, and how it could improve fusion devices. The article talks about how Scientists have discovered a new way that resistivity can cause instabilities in the plasma edge, where temperatures and pressures rise sharply. By incorporating resistivity into models that predict the behavior of plasma, a soup of electrons and atomic nuclei that makes up 99% of the visible universe, scientists can design systems for future fusion facilities that make the plasma more stable.

I researched the gravitational waves. Gravitational waves first started in 2015 they came from 2 black holes slamming into each other. Since the first one dozens have happened over Italy including the first smashup of 2 newton stars. Scientists hope that in the future there will be “steller explosions” or spinning neutron stars. https://www.snexplores.org/article/lets-learn-about-gravitational-waves

10. R Hastings C7 says:

I read an article about how we are starting to explore human teardrops and that you can find diseases in peoples tears. Scientists collect the tears and study them to find out more about what is going on in the human body. They’ve even discovered that this could possibly help doctors keep track of how a persons diabetes are progressing.

I read an article about LEDs providing the most energy-efficient lighting today because for a given amount of electricity LEDs produce more light than fluorescent or incandescent bulbs. LEDs use 90 percent less energy than incandescent bulbs and about half as much as fluorescents.

12. M Milligan C2 says:

I read about the complexness of our personalities. The Big Five is the five personality dimensions. Extraversion includes friendliness and sociable. Neuroticism includes withdrawal and anxiety. Conscientiousness includes hard-working and self-discipline. Agreeableness includes compassion and polite. Openness to experience includes creativity and curious.

13. C Jacobi C7 says:

I read about how scientists have turned dead spiders into robots. They turned the spider into a “gripper” by injecting a fluid into the spiders body which caused its legs to open, then they would suck the fluid back out and the spider’s legs would close. The scientists found out that spiders control the movement of their legs by pushing blood into them. That’s why a dead spiders legs curl up, they aren’t pushing blood into their legs anymore. After testing how long the spider can go before drying up the scientists concluded that only after hundreds of uses did the spider dry up, so now they will coat the spider in a sealant to try to lengthen that time. The next step is to find a way to control the legs individually!

I researched and read about how the COVID-19 pandemic may have a long-term impact on our health in the future and how people’s health has already been affected today. Some scientists have discovered that COVID-19 cases may make a remarkable reappearance this coming up fall and winter since people will start to become couped up into their homes to avoid the colder weather. Because of this, people will not be getting as much circulation and fresh air that is highly needed to stay healthy. A study shows that those who have had COVID-19 in the past are at a higher risk for several different cardiovascular diseases rather than those who have never had COVID-19. Besides just regular COVID-19 there is also a thing called long COVID. One of the effects of long COVID is that people can not work for long periods of time which leads them unable to support themselves and maintain health care. People are also faced with the loss of their loved ones which puts a toll on their mental and physical health. Scientists are just beginning to put a dent into all the possible effects the COVID-19 virus could have on all the citizens of society.

15. M Patel C7 says:

The article I read talked about cardiovascular disease or inflammatory disorder. Cardiovascular disease happens when your sleeping patterns change or when you get less than 9 hours of sleep. This affects your immune cells which fight infections, but when your immune cells get to hight they overreact and cause inflammation. This study also tells that catching up on sleep doesn’t reverse the problem. One important thing this article tells is that adults should sleep 8-9 hours because sleeping less than those hours can cause more risk of cardiovascular disease. Also adults with other medical conditions are at a much more higher risk of getting this disease. So get your sleep people.

I read about how some ecologists are starting to value parasites as they go extinct. Science News Explores said, “Some may help shape the food web and move nutrients through an ecosystem. They may control the populations of some wildlife species. Parasites may even help prevent some disease outbreaks.” While parasites can be very dangerous and cause harmful diseases, they also play an important role in ecosystems.

I read an article about Brachycephalus frogs (pumpkin toadlets) and how mid-jump they forget how to land and plummet awkwardly to the ground. Richard Essner Jr was so fascinated by it that he flew on a plane immediately to get a closer look. He concluded that since the frogs are so small, the tubes that usually hold fluid and slosh around in animals ears aren’t fully working. Their tubes are too small so the tiny frogs are unable to get their balance and ascertain what direction they are falling. https://www.snexplores.org/article/pumpkin-toadlets-jump-clumsy-ear-canal-brachycephalus

19. C Hamilton C1 says:

I read an article about how sleep deprivation can affect the generosity of humans. One of the experiments the researchers conducted involved a group of 23 adults getting lots of sleep one night and no sleep the next. The researchers then gave the participants a questionnaire where they would rate their likelihood of helping people in certain situations. On the second morning, 80% of participants were less likely to help people when sleep-deprived rather than when fully rested.

20. K Bobo C2 says:

I read an article on a new way to grow plants without any sunlight. This new process is made for the purpose of growing plants in space. Reasoning behind this is because in space, astronauts release unhealthy amounts of CO₂ into spacecraft and growing plants in the dark that can release oxygen would help balance this level. Scientists have tested this theory by feeding acetate to algae and plants in the dark. The acetate method succeeded extremely and caused the algae to grow four times more effectively with the new method rather than photosynthesis.

My article was about Chemistry in Ice Cream making! Grain-like ice cream doesn’t taste good, but some scientists have theorized that by adding in Cellulose nanocrystals, the ice cream wouldn’t be grainy. Grainy textures happens when the ice crystals get too big in the ice cream. Cellulose nanocrystals work in a way that limits the crystals’ growth. They are also less expensive than other methods of keeping crystals from growing too much.

I read an article about how lion fish can catch their pray without the ability of being fast. The article talked about how the fish can blend in against a coral reef long enough to stalk and hunt their pray. However, when they are in plain sight with nothing to hide with, the lion fish go towards their pray in sudden bursts of fast swimming and short pauses, which all add up to allow the fish to catch up and capture their pray.

I read an article on how gorillas made a new call for food that sounds a cough sneeze. We have all had that feeling when you have to sneeze really bad and it turned out that all you needed to do was cough. Gorillas make the same noise when they can sense food nearby. They puts these gorillas and their “snoughs” to a test while holding a bucket of grapes nearby the gorillas, and another bucket outside the enclosure. The gorillas mainly “snoughed” zookeepers, while approaching the non-guarded bucket of grapes, to simply let them know it was snack time.

I read an article talking about how much better renewable energy is so much better than non renewable energy for the environment. Non renewable energy like fossil flues, coal, nuclear energy etc. are no where as good for the environment as renewable energy is such as solar energy, wind energy, and hydro energy. Non renewable energies are terrible for the environment by causing pollution and killing our planet. But for renewable energies are very eco-friendly and even more effective than non renewable energies.

I read an article about how dogs are now proven to be able to catch deadly diseases. Two men in France have spread monkeypox to their dogs. Though other animals have been known to catch monkeypox, this is the first time someone has been known to spread monkeypox to a dog. Scientists are now worried that domestic animals could be long-term hosts for diseases.

In the article I read this week, it talked about how scientists are using lasers to turn the plastic that is from soda bottles into “nanodiamonds”. Using this PET plastic, they are able to make diamonds for the usage of quantum physics, using a system that helps the oxygen push out the hydrogen, leaving the carbon present to form the diamonds.

This week I read an article over the new photos that have come out of Saturn’s rings. It had been 30 years since the last photo has been taken of Saturn. It is astonishing to me to think that we have close up photos of a planet that is too far to even see in the sky at night. Our technology had grown so much and the fact that we can send something into space just to take photos of planets is incredible.

There has been research on how you can borrow a tree’s cellulose to toughen new materials. For example, researchers have found that if you break down wood to its smallest component (nano toothpicks) then you can do practically anything with it. Some have found that you can turn cellulose nanocrystals into parts for electronics. In Japan, there has even been a team that has built an entire car out of materials that contain cellulose nanocrystals.

29. C Chambliss C2 says:

I read an article on how some ecologists value parasites. I learned that aside from spreading disease and infection, parasites can help us study bigger things. They can even help stop the spread of some disease. I learned that they can be helpful to ecosystems. Parasites are now endangered, and scientists want to change peoples minds when it comes to parasites having a bad reputation.

I researched and read an article on how science was discovered and by who. I learned that the greeks were actually the first to discover science and learn that all matter is made up of atoms. It wasn’t until the 16th century that some european universities discovered how blood circulated around the body. And it wasn’t until the 17th century that they started using microscopes, telescopes and other modern technologies.

31. H Barker C7 says:

I researched about this new form of 3D printing. They use old wood (old dressers, broken chairs, ect.) and other kinds of nature waste, grind it up to a sawdust, add a glue (made from nature scraps as well), and used it as the ink for their 3D printer. It can be made any shape. It still has wood qualities too! The lead scientist, Shlomo Magdassi, hopes that one day people will use this technique for their chairs and then in a few years you can change them without hurting the trees. This is amazing because it doesn’t hurt the planet since we’re reusing old wood and the scraps that are usually just thrown away.

I researched about Saturns rings and how a moon that once orbited Saturn ripped apart and contributed to Saturns tilt. I find this crazy how just a single moon can create a told on a large planet. The moon called Chrysalis once orbited Saturn until it pulled on the planet and ripped apart. It didn’t just create the Tilt but it also made up part of Saturns rings!

This face mask can sense the presence of an airborne virus. Yep, it almost sounds too futuristic but it’s true. A team of researchers combined technology with a face mask that can sense many airborne viruses in just 10 minutes. The face mask can sense Covid 19 and Bird flu as well as other airborne viruses that can cause you to get sick. When in the vicinity of an airborne virus the mask alerts the researchers of the virus to collect more data about how the mask works and what they can do to improve it. The sensor in the mask could detect just a fraction of a microliter of these proteins which makes the objective of warning the host of the virus more accurate. The team hopes to make the mask more advanced to contain future pandemics.
