Programmatic Marketing: Sometimes It Actually Is Rocket Science

Science2.0 - 1 hour 7 min ago
If you have gone to a new web page and seen an advertisement based on things you looked at in your browser history, you have likely been impressed or creeped out. You can thank MIT for a lot of this “programmatic marketing” - and rocket science. It is also why you will probably never make any money on your blog.

The Dating Jungle: How Men And Women See Each Other Online

Science2.0 - 1 hour 17 min ago

Ancient Microbe-Sediment Systems Of The Barberton Greenstone Belt

General - 2 hours 47 min ago
The modern sedimentary environment contains a diversity of microbes that interact very closely with the sediments, sometimes to such an extent that they form "biosediments."

But can such a phenomenon be fossilized? How far back in time can "biosedimentation" be traced? In a study for Geology, Frances Westall and colleagues examine some of the oldest rocks on Earth, in the Barberton Greenstone Belt, South Africa (older than 3.3 billion years), to answer this question.

Westall and colleagues use multi-scale methods to document the simultaneous presence of diverse types of microorganisms, including phototrophs and chemotrophs, directly interacting with coastal volcanic sediments that were bathed by hydrothermal fluids.

Will Female Viagra Be An FDA Boner?

General - May 28, 2015 - 9:50pm
First of all, let me state that my conscience is perfectly clear:

However, unlike yours truly, if you have an impure mind I suggest you take it up with Merriam-Webster.

Having dispensed with that trivial distraction, can someone please explain to me what is going on below?

Enjoy Sugar Again: High Carb Diet On Par With Caloric Restriction In Boosting Health

Science2.0 - May 28, 2015 - 4:54pm
Caloric restriction in mice has been touted for accomplishing everything from increasing longevity to lowering cholesterol, but those animals are weaned on that from birth, and humans will go to jail trying it with their children.

It may be unnecessary - and the diet advice we have gotten for the last 30 years may be also. A new study found that a diet of high carbohydrates and low protein - the opposite of what has been recommended - improves insulin sensitivity and can provide benefits similar to those obtained with calorie restriction.

CSI 430,000 B.C. - A Murder Mystery?

Science2.0 - May 28, 2015 - 3:20pm
Lethal wounds identified on a human skull may indicate one of the first cases of murder in human history, according to a new paper.

The archaeological site, Sima de los Huesos in northern Spain, is located deep within an underground cave system and contains the skeletal remains of at least 28 individuals that date to around 430,000 years ago, during the Middle Pleistocene. The only access to the site is through a 13-meter deep vertical shaft, and how the human bodies arrived there remains a mystery.
