    Could cheerleading be the most progressive sport in terms of gender roles?  New research from the University of East Anglia indicates that the traditionally female-centered activity can help participants of both sexes challenge stereotypes about girls in sports.  The study, which was published in the journal Sport in Society: Cultures, Commerce, Media, Politics, tracked the growing popularity of cheerleading in the U.K. and focused on the members of four cheerleading teams.  “The participants in our study talked about flipping gender norms in cheerleading,” Dr. Amy Pressland, a co-author of the study, tells Yahoo Parenting.

  • 16/74   High School Quarterback’s Tragic Death Highlights Silent Danger of an Enlarged Spleen
    SPORTS TOPIC NEWS

    A spleen can become enlarged for many reasons, including genetic diseases, William Katkov, MD, a gastroenterologist at Providence Saint John’s Health Center in Santa Monica, Calif., tells Yahoo Health.  Here’s why that’s a problem: A person may feel better and resume their normal activities, but their enlarged spleen is more susceptible to rupturing and may no longer be protected by their ribcage, leaving it incredibly vulnerable to injury.  “An enlarged spleen is at an increased risk for rupture or injury in the setting of normal trauma, like a football game, diving into a pool, or minor car accident,” Katkov says.  While an enlarged spleen can be asymptomatic, Katkov says a person can feel uncomfortable or have a feeling of fullness in their upper abdomen on the left side.

    President Donald Trump on Monday sought to end fears of an abrupt US pullout from Syria, saying the fight against the Islamic State group was not over and that withdrawal would be done in a 'prudent' manner.  'We will be leaving at a proper pace while at the same time continuing to fight ISIS and doing all else that is prudent and necessary!' Trump tweeted.  The president has come under withering pressure both at home and in allied capitals after previous statements indicating that he considered the IS group vanquished and that he wanted US troops out of Syria imminently.

  • 58/74   EPA says it is committed to rule for higher ethanol blend by summer driving season

    NEW YORK/WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency said on Tuesday it would complete a rule to boost sales of higher-ethanol blends of gasoline by the summer driving season, despite a partial government shutdown.  President Donald Trump pledged in the run-up to November's congressional elections to lift the summer ban on sales of so-called E15 gasoline, in a boost to an ethanol industry upended by trade wars and weak demand growth at home.  The Trump administration hoped to have the rule published by February and approved by June, but the EPA recently told lawmakers that the timeline would be delayed because of the partial government shutdown, said the two sources, who spoke to Reuters on condition of anonymity.

  • 59/74   Amateur scientists just found a new planet, and it might even be habitable
    SCIENCE TOPIC NEWS

    NASA's Kepler space telescope is dead. It ran out of fuel back in October of last year, but the incredible wealth of data that it sent back during its life is still being sifted through, and new discoveries are just waiting to be made.

A timely reminder of that fact comes in the form of an all-new exoplanet discovery made by citizen scientists who dedicated their time to combing through Kepler's logs. The world, called K2-288Bb, appears to be quite special, and researchers who have looked at the data think it might even host liquid water, raising the possibility that the newfound planet is habitable.

The research, which was published in The Astronomical Journal, reveals that K2-288Bb resides in the constellation Taurus and sits around 226 light years away from Earth. The planet orbits a binary star system consisting of two stars that are smaller than our own Sun. Compared to the Sun, the larger of the two stars in the binary system is around half as massive, while the smaller is only about one-third as massive.

As far as what the planet may be like, the jury is still out. It's clear that the world is significantly larger than Earth, about twice the size, but it's located within what scientists consider the habitable zone of its system. If it's a rocky world like Earth, chances are good that it could support water on its surface, but it might also be a gassy "sub-Neptune" planet which would be hostile to life as we know it.

The discovery is unique for a number of reasons -- not least of which is that it was made by amateur astronomers -- but the biggest surprise for scientists was its size. As NASA's JPL notes in a blog post, planets between 1.5 and 2 times the size of Earth are seemingly rare based on the exoplanet data we've gathered thus far.

  • 62/74   Why big brains took a bite out of our ability to chomp
    SCIENCE TOPIC NEWS

    If you have ever struggled to gnaw your way through a fatty chunk of Aberdeen Angus or a forkful of fibrous kale, then take heart. It is your large brain which is causing the problem. While other omnivores evolved powerful biting muscles as they increased in body size, humans instead poured their developmental resources into more cerebral matters. In the space where muscles critical for hard biting should be housed, humans grew bigger brains and with the extra thinking capacity, invented cooking, which made food softer, further diminishing the need for bone-crushing jaws. The new findings were uncovered by researchers at the universities of Reading and Lincoln who used computer analysis to study bite force data from 434 species, both extinct and living, including reptiles, birds and mammals. Dr Manabu Sakamoto, biological scientist from Reading and lead author of the study, said: “Our study shows that the evolutionary lineage leading up to modern humans was associated with a rapid decrease in bite force. “This fits with previous studies showing a similar rapid reduction in molar tooth size in ancient humans, but also coincides with the enlargement of the brain along with the invention of cooking. “As the brain got larger, our ancestors lost the necessary space to house powerful jaw closing muscles - so we can say that we lost the ability to bite and chew hard as a trade-off for acquiring a bigger brain.” The team originally thought that animals with the most powerful bites were forced to rapidly evolve the feature because of a change in their diets. Homo erectus (left) had a far larger jaw than modern humans (far right) Credit: Abbie Trayler-Smith  But instead found that the bite power of most animals developed proportionally to evolutionary changes to their body size over time, with only some seeing their bite forces develop at a faster rate than other changes. In fact, more dramatic reductions were seen over time than increases, with humans being a prime example. Dr Sakamoto added: “Increasing brain size in humans may be the reason that our bite power is pretty pathetic. “Once we learnt to cook food, bite power became even less important. In effect, we evolved the cooking pot as our way of making our food easier to swallow. This is in line with other studies showing that humans chew their food less than other animals.” The team also made some intriguing discoveries about the bite capabilities of other animals. For example Tyrannosaurus rex, which was renowned for being one of the most fearsome creatures to have ever lived, evolved a bite that was less impressive in relation to its body size than a tiny Galapagos ground finch. For its body size, T.Rex had a bite force of 57,000 Newtons that was utterly unremarkable for its body mass of eight tonnes.   Yet a Galapagos large ground finch can bite with an impressive 70N of force, despite weighing just 33 grammes, about 320 times more powerful, pound-for-pound, than the huge dinosaur. Dr Chris Venditti, University of Reading co-author on the study, said: “Our research provides new insight into the latest theories about the speed and drivers of evolution. It also allows us to create some fascinating hypothetical match-ups. “The proclaimed ‘King of the Dinosaurs’ would be no match for a finch in a fight, if they were the same size.” Dr Sakamoto added: “Large predators like T. rex could generate enough bite force to kill its prey and crush bone just by being large, not because they had a disproportionately powerful bite. “This counters the idea that an exceptionally strong need for a powerful bite drove these ancient beasts to evolve bone-crushing bite forces.” The research was published in Proceedings of the Royal Society B.
