Countries with greater gender equality have lower percentage of female STEM graduates
(University of Missouri-Columbia) Although women currently are well represented in life sciences, they continue to be underrepresented in inorganic sciences, such as computer science and physics. Now, researchers from the University of Missouri and Leeds Beckett University in the United Kingdom have found that as societies become wealthier and more gender equal, women are less likely to obtain degrees in STEM. The researchers call this a 'gender-equality paradox.' Researchers also discovered a near-universal sex difference in academic strengths and weaknesses that contributes to the STEM gap.

Early Detection of HIV May Be as Easy as Spitting
When it comes to HIV screening, healthcare workers often have to make a choice between using a reliable, albeit time-consuming blood test — or a simple, less accurate saliva test. The blood test is much more reliable at detecting signs of infection, but health officials often have a difficult time getting patients to volunteer blood. The other alternative is to rely on oral fluid-based tests that, while quicker and simpler, are frequently inconclusive because HIV antibodies accumulate at lower levels in saliva. A group of researchers from Stanford hope to change that with a new saliva-based test that combines the con...

The world ’ s most powerful acoustic tractor beam could pave the way for levitating humans
Acoustic tractor beams use the power of sound to hold particles in mid-air, and unlike magnetic levitation, they can grab most solids, liquids or even small insects and food. For the first time University of Bristol engineers have shown that it is possible to stably trap objects larger than the wavelength of sound in an acoustic tractor beam. This discovery opens the door to the manipulation of drug capsules or micro-surgical implements within the human body. Container-less transportation of delicate larger samples is now also a possibility and who knows, this could be a step towards levitating humans. (Source: University of Bristol news)
