Dinosaur love nests unearthed by Colorado research group

Dinosaurs engaged in mating behavior similar to modern birds, leaving fossil evidence behind in 100-million year old rocks, according to new research. Paleontologist Martin Lockley of the University of Colorado Denver led a research team that discovered what he called large “scrapes” in prehistoric Dakota sandstone in western Colorado.

Real life King-Kong may have been doomed by changing landscape—and own size

An ape thought to be the largest in Earth’s history died out because it couldn’t adapt or get enough food in a changing landscape about 100,000 years ago, scientists argue in a new study. The giant ape Gigantopithecus weighed an estimated 200 to 500 kg, or 400 to 1,111 pounds. That’s up to three times heavier than the largest living species of gorilla, the Eastern lowland gorilla.

Scientists found DNA-like molecule that assemble itself

Chemists say they have found a way to make a DNA-like molecule assemble itself in a pond-like setting—potentially suggesting a key step in how life originated. The researchers actually worked with a simpler molecule, called pre-RNA. It’s hypothesized to have eventually evolved into DNA—one stopping point along the way having been the creation of a third substance, RNA, still used in the body to translate the code inscribed in DNA.

Study find promising results in treating age-related decline in muscle mass and power

Scientists say they have obtained promising results from a Phase 2 trial of a treatment against the decline in muscle mass and power associated with aging. The “proof-of-concept” trial examined the prospects for a myostatin antibody, a drug designed to counter the effects of a protein that scientists see as a culprit in muscle decline.

Birds can rearrange sounds to create meanings

A bird known as the chestnut-crowned babbler can rearrange meaningless sounds to create meaningful signals—previously thought to be a uniquely human skill, researchers say. “This is the first time that the capacity to generate new meaning from rearranging meaningless elements has been shown to exist outside of humans,” said Simon Townsend of the University of Zurich in Switzerland, co-author of a report on the findings.

Study : Some people has special interest towards doomed-to-fail products

Diet Crystal Pepsi. Frito Lay Lemonade. Watermelon Oreos. Through the years, the shelves of stores have been filled with products that turned out to be flops, failures, duds, and losers. But some people are drawn to these products again and again, a study finds—so much so that their buying activity may signal that a product is doomed.

Ancient Mars was not wet but covered with ice, study claims

Mars may well have had plentiful water billions of years ago—but it was mostly ice, not liquid, a study claims. Researchers say a cold and icy planet billions of years ago better explains water drainage and erosion features seen on the Red Planet today.

For the first time scientists have discovered brain networks linked to intelligence

Scientists claimed that for the first time they have identified the entire “networks” of intelligence-linked genes, by uncovering two clusters of genes linked to human intelligence. Called M1 and M3, the researchers said, these so-called gene networks appear to influence cognitive function—which includes memory, attention, processing speed and reasoning.
