A century after their adventure, Antarctic heroes help make discovery

A century after their adventure, Antarctic heroes help make discovery

Washington D.C. [USA], Nov.24 : The research, which says area of sea ice around Antarctica has barely changed in size in a century, was contributed by the heroes of Antarctic exploration.

Ice observations recorded in the ships' logbooks of explorers such as British Captain Robert Scott and Ernest Shackleton and the German Erich von Drygalski have been used to compare where the Antarctic ice edge was during the Heroic Age of Antarctic Exploration (1897-1917) and where satellites show it is today.

The study suggests Antarctic sea ice is much less sensitive to the effects of climate change as compared to the Arctic, which in stark contrast has experienced a dramatic decline during the 20th century.

Hop on with frog's evolutionary movements

Hop on with frog's evolutionary movements

Washington D.C. [USA], Nov.24 : A new study, collecting genetic data by an international group of scientists, says that a common species of Asian tree frog may actually be two separate species.

If the two groups of frogs are confirmed to be different species, assigning their scientific names may require searching historical records of foreign explorers in Japan during the 1800s.

Before the frogs are officially recognised as two separate species, researchers will test if individual frogs from the two groups have unique physical or behavioral features and if they can produce healthy offspring.

Boozing may lead to some particular types of stroke

Boozing may lead to some particular types of stroke

Washington D.C. [USA], Nov.24 : A study says that though moderate boozing up to two drinks per day is associated with a lower risk of ischemic stroke, it seems to have no effect on a person's risk of hemorrhagic stroke.

High-to-heavy drinking was found to be associated with increased risk of all stroke types.

Researchers at Karolinska Institutet, Sweden, and University of Cambridge, UK, suggest that the divergent associations of alcohol consumption with different types of stroke may explain some of the inconsistent findings of previous studies which investigated the association between alcohol consumption and stroke but did not discriminate between different stroke types.

Mothers take note! Your guidance helps kid improve his or her math skills

Mothers take note! Your guidance helps kid improve his or her math skills

Washington D.C. [USA], Nov. 23 : A mother's support helps their children develop better math skills.

A study has found that young children whose mothers supported them during play, specifically in their labeling of object quantities, had better math achievement at ages 4-½ and 5 years.

The study, conducted by researchers at Boston College, is published in the journal Child Development.

Early math knowledge is as important as early literacy for children's subsequent achievement. It can also predict later school success, income in adulthood.

The researchers developed ways to assess mothers' support of their children's math skills by examining how moms supported and guided their 3-year-olds' learning as they played with a toy cash register and blocks.

Smoking fatal for diabetic patient: Study

Smoking fatal for diabetic patient: Study

Washington D.C. [USA], Nov. 23 : It is well known that smoking is injurious to health and causes lung cancer, but a recent study has found that smoking is fatal for diabetic patients.

A study, presented at the annual meeting of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) suggested that heavy smokers with diabetes are at increased risk of death.

Diabetes is a chronic illness in which there are high levels of glucose in the blood. One in four people with diabetes doesn't know he or she has it. Having diabetes can also put people at risk for numerous other health complications.

Father's involment in childcare lessens kid's behavioural problems

Father's involment in childcare lessens kid's behavioural problems

Washington D.C. [USA], Nov. 23 : A father who embraces parenthood confidently, helps the child to cope with behavioural problems, says a study.

A recent study published in the online journal BMJ Open found that kids whose dads adjust well to parenthood and feel

confident about their new role may be less likely to have behavioural problems in the run-up to their teens.

It's how fathers see themselves as parents in the child's early years, rather than the amount of direct childcare they give, that seems to be important, the findings suggest.

The nature of parenting in a child's early years is thought to influence their short and long term wellbeing and mental health, which are in turn linked to development and educational attainment.

Trans-Pacific Partnership is in the best interest of U.S., other nations: Kirby

Washington D.C. [United States], Nov. 23 : In the wake of president-elect Donald Trump saying that the U.S. will leave Trans-Pacific Partnership, a spokesperson of the U.S. State Department, John Kirby has said that the Obama administration still believes in the strength of TPP and in the power of trade.

He described the TPP as being in the best interest of the United States and other signatory nations.

"It's not just the United States. It's not just this Administration that believes in the power of the TPP, but so do many others," Kirby said.

Stating that Washington believes in power of TPP, Kirby said, there is need to think more broadly about the power of trade and what trade can bring to not just one, but also many other economies of the world.

Toxic amphibian defenses at higher risk of extinction

Toxic amphibian defenses at higher risk of extinction

Washington D.C. [USA], Nov. 23 : A recent study published in the journal Royal Society Open Science, found that amphibians which use poisonous defenses are more likely to get extinct than other species.

Research published by a Swansea University scientist has suggested amphibians which have a toxic defence against predators such as the iconic poison dart frogs have a much higher risk of extinction than species which use other types of defence mechanisms.

The key finding of Dr Kevin Arbuckle's latest study is that poisonous species are 60 percent more likely to be threatened than species without chemical defences.

Amphibians are usually considered the most threatened group of vertebrate animals and are experiencing population declines globally, raising conservation challenges.

Regular walking routine helps prevent heart disease

Washington D.C. [USA], Nov. 22 : A recent study has found that keeping a regular walking regime can help combat fatal heart diseases.

The study, titled "Walking for Heart Health: A Study of Adult Women in Rural New York" was published in Creative Nursing journal.

The researchers at Binghamton University, State University of New York suggested that moderately intensive walking improves cardiovascular risk factors in the short term.

Musical training helps treat autism: Study

Washington D.C. [USA], Nov. 22 : Experiencing music at an early age can contribute to better brain development and may as well be useful in treating autism and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD).
