Thai Quality and Outcomes Framework Primary care serves as an entry point in the Thai health care system. Whilst effective interventions are provided in the primary care setting, the quality of the services have not been measured or tracked. Therefore, this study aims to develop new quality indicators for use in subsequent iterations of the […]

Bigwigs in a more than 600-year-old South American population were easy to spot. Their artificially elongated, teardrop-shaped heads screamed prestige, a new study finds. During the 300 years before the Incas’ arrival in 1450, intentional head shaping among prominent members of the Collagua ethnic community in Peru increasingly centered on a stretched-out look, says bioarchaeologist […]

Is there life on the surface of Mars? The clock is ticking on scientists’ window to solve that long-standing question before astronauts—and the microbes that live on them—contaminate the planet. Today, at a meeting in Washington, D.C., of NASA’s planetary science advisory committee, the agency’s new planetary protection officer raised the possibility of opening up a […]

Superionic water was only hypothesized in the 1980s, and had been described for the first time by a group of scientists at SISSA and ICTP, in association with a Max-Planck Institute in Stuttgart. For that study, published in Science in 1999, the scholars used highly refined models of realistic computer simulation. Erio Tosatti and Sandro […]

The loneliest tree in the world records the signature of humans’ impact on planet Earth. A single Sitka spruce (Picea sitchensis) that stands on remote Campbell Island, in New Zealand, holds within its heartwood the record of radiocarbon fallout from the aboveground nuclear testing that began in 1945. Shrubby plants on the island also retain […]

After an intensive period of analyses the research team was able to establish that they had probably succeeded in creating a topological superconductor, exciting new technology for quantum computing. Credit: Johan Bodell/Chalmers   With their insensitivity to decoherence what are known as Majorana particles could become stable building blocks of a quantum computer. The problem […]

The simple cucumber may be delicious on a salad or in a sandwich, but getting it to the table is a labor-intensive and increasingly expensive job, to the point where countries like Germany are in danger of seeing domestic cultivation move abroad. To keep German cucumber farms viable, the Fraunhofer Institute for Production Systems and […]
