Be alert to the medical pitfalls that come with increased screen time
Most of us know that sitting all day in front of your computer puts strain on your eyes. Who among us hasn ’t complained of dry eyes after a long day at work in front of the computer screen, which today is most likely in our home? In the past, this work-related strain was relieved by in person meetings during the day or a leisurely trip to the store after work.

Cognitive flexibility training manages responses to social conflict
(Walter Reed Army Institute of Research) Scientists at the WRAIR and ARL developed a computer-based training to reduce anger, reactive aggression and hostile attribution bias--the tendency to attribute hostile intent to the actions of others--in ambiguous social conflict situations. HAB and unwarranted anger can jeopardize social bonds, team culture and team performance. It is also linked to post-traumatic stress disorder, depression and other behavioral health concerns. Researchers showed the HBMT was effective up to 96 hours after the training. (Source: EurekAlert! - Medicine and Health)

Featured Review: Thoracic imaging tests for the diagnosis of COVID-19
How accurate is chest imaging for diagnosing COVID-19?Why is this question important?People with suspected COVID-19 need to know quickly whether they are infected, so that they can self-isolate, receive treatment, and inform close contacts. Currently, formal diagnosis of COVID-19 infection requires laboratory analysis of blood or nose and throat samples. The laboratory test, called RT-PCR, requires specialist equipment and takes at least 24 hours to produce a result. Further, RT-PCR is not completely accurate and a second RT-PCR or a different test may be required to confirm the diagnosis.COVID-19 is a respiratory infectio...

Synthetic connectivity, emergence, and self-regeneration in the network of prebiotic chemistry
The challenge of prebiotic chemistry is to trace the syntheses of life’s key building blocks from a handful of primordial substrates. Here we report a forward-synthesis algorithm that generates a full network of prebiotic chemical reactions accessible from these substrates under generally accepted conditions. This network contains both reported and previously unidentified routes to biotic targets, as well as plausible syntheses of abiotic molecules. It also exhibits three forms of nontrivial chemical emergence, as the molecules within the network can act as catalysts of downstream reaction types; form functional chem...
