Global learning creates connections in Rwanda

The purpose of global learning is to bring minds together from across the planet.

Mathematician unveils new model for understanding how cancers develop

Reposted from College of Science. Why do the vast majority of cancer cases arise late in patients’ lives? A traditional explanation in the development of cancers is a paradigm focused on mutations in individual cells. According to this model, known as somatic theory, a cascade of approximately six mutational changes in a single cell triggers […]

Study pinpoints origins of creativity in the brain

Creative thought is a hallmark of humanity, but it’s an ephemeral, almost paradoxical ability, striking unexpectedly when it’s not sought out.

Genetics reveal ancient trade routes of Four Corners potato

Genetic analysis shows that ancient Indigenous people transported, cultivated and may have domesticated the native tuber outside of its natural distribution, reflecting the enduring ecological legacy of Indigenous people in the Southwest.

Your therapist wants you to go outside

Spending time in nature—even as little as 10 minutes—can yield short-term benefits for adults with mental illness.

‘Miracle’ filter turns store-bought LEDs into spintronic devices

For the first time, scientists transformed existing optoelectronic devices into ones that can control electron spin at room temperature, without a ferromagnet or magnetic field.

Of ants and trees: ‘Evolutionary déjà vu’ in the tropical rainforest

U biologist Rodolfo Probst finds multiple ant species that have independently evolved the same specialized relationship with understory trees.
