Bullying and bias can cost schools millions in lost funding

When children avoid school to avoid bullying, many states can lose tens of millions of dollars in lost funding, and California alone loses an estimated $276 million each year because children feel unsafe. New research highlights the hidden cost to communities in states that use daily attendance numbers to calculate public school funding….

3-D-printed implants can improve integration of amputee prosthetic devices with bone

A new study evaluated two additive manufacturing methods for producing either fine or coarse textured titanium implants and compared the strength of bone integration, interlocking, and torque in rats given one or both types of the implants in the distal femurs….

Picture overload hinders children's word learning from storybooks

While publishers look to produce ever more colourful and exciting texts to entice buyers, University of Sussex psychologists have shown that having more than one illustration per page results in poorer word learning among pre-schoolers….

Exposure to cardiovascular risk factors linked with arterial distensibility in adolescence

The longitudinal study on children and adolescents is unique worldwide. The study shows that cardiovascular risk factors, such as overweight, high blood pressure, low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol and insulin resistance, are associated with arterial distensibility in adolescence….

Liquid biopsies: A non-invasive look at treatment response

A new study shows that so-called “liquid biopsies”, blood tests that detect circulating tumour DNA (ctDNA), may not only sound an early alert that a treatment’s effect is diminishing, but may also help explain why -sometimes offering clues about what to do next….
