Men who feel their partners have less power in their relationships than they do report lower relationship quality

Men who feel their partners have less power in their relationships than they do report lower relationship quality

A study published in the explores how power dynamics within couples can affect relationship quality. The findings suggest that the consequences are different for men and women.Previous research has suggested that couples with an equal share of power tend to be the most satisfied with their relationships. Study authors Jitka Lindová and associates wanted to extend this research by diving deeper into the dynamics of imbalanced partnerships.Lindová and colleagues say, “it is not clear who the dissatisfied partner in power-imbalanced couples is and what the specific cause of his/her...

CBD helps reduce lung damage from COVID by increasing levels of protective peptide

CBD helps reduce lung damage from COVID by increasing levels of protective peptide

One way CBD appears to reduce the "cytokine storm" that damages the lungs and kills many patients with COVID-19 is by enabling an increase in levels of a natural peptide called apelin, which is known to reduce inflammation and whose levels are dramatically reduced in the face of this storm.Dental College of Georgia and Medical College of Georgia researchers reported this summer CBD's ability to improve oxygen levels and reduce inflammation as well as physical lung damage in their laboratory model of deadly adult respiratory distress syndrome, or ARDS.Now they have shown that apelin levels...

JWST remains on track for October 2021 launch - SpaceNews

WASHINGTON — NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope remains on schedule for a launch in a little more than a year, but the program is still dealing with some technical issues that could eat into its schedule reserve.At an Oct. 19 meeting of NASA’s Astrophysics Advisory Committee, Eric Smith, JWST program scientist, said the mission was making good progress after the agency decided in July . That delay, NASA officials said then, was caused in part by the coronavirus pandemic, which slowed down work on the telescope at a Northrop Grumman facility in Southern California.Earlier this month, NASA and...

With Starlink, SpaceX continues to push the bounds of reusing rockets

A Falcon 9 rocket ascended into the blue skies above Florida on Sunday morning, and much of the space world barely took notice.Sure, it was fairly early on a Sunday, and many Americans were not even yet out of bed. But there's a deeper reality here: SpaceX has made launching rockets almost seem routine. The company's vice president of reliability, Hans Koenigsmann, once told me that one of his goals was to take the "magic" out of rocket launches. And the company seems to be succeeding.SpaceX is also succeeding at reuse. Sunday morning's launch used a Falcon 9 first stage that has already...

Rogue Rocky Planet Found Adrift in the Milky Way

Rogue Rocky Planet Found Adrift in the Milky Way

Not all planets orbit stars. Some are instead “free-floating” rogues adrift in interstellar space after being ejected from their home systems. For decades astronomers have sought to study such elusive outcasts, hoping to find patterns in their size and number that could reveal otherwise hidden details of how planetary systems emerge and evolve.Of the handful known so far, most free floaters have been massive gas giants, but now researchers may have found one small enough to be rocky—smaller even than Earth. If its rogue status is confirmed, the roughly Mars-to-Earth-mass object would be the...

Crabs and Convergent Evolution: Carcinization Explained

Crabs and Convergent Evolution: Carcinization Explained

We knew the long quarantine was making us all crabby, but this is extreme: People now feel fully betrayed by the (technically, “carcinization”) of different species over time. That means groups of crustaceans have evolved into crabs in five completely different contexts, giving rise to a meme that the long arc of history truly bends toward the crab.🦀You love badass animals. So do we. BoingBoing shares about carcinization. Carcinization sounds like something about prison at first blush, but on second look, you’ll see it shares a root with carcinogen as well as cancer itself—both from the...

Prejudice against people with darker skin may make donors less generous

Prejudice against people with darker skin may make donors less generous

The is a short take about interesting academic work.U.S. donors are inclined to give less generously to charities in developing countries when they believe those funds will .That’s what I found out when I measured the implicit skin-tone bias of 750 people who completed an online survey. The donors who harbored more implicit bias against darker skin were less likely to give more than US$10 to the charity than those who were less prejudiced.I recruited the participants through a virtual labor market known as . They were asked about their age, income and education, and other characteristics....
