Specially trained rescue divers leapt into the water to pull dozens to safety, including those who managed to stay aboard the half-submerged dinghy as well as ...

How good bacteria control your genes
(Babraham Institute) Scientists from Cambridge, Brazil and Italy have together discovered a way that bacteria in the gut can control genes in our cells. Their work shows that chemical messages from bacteria can alter chemical markers throughout the human genome. The signal chemicals are made when bacteria digest fruits and vegetables. By communicating in this way, the bacteria may help to fight infections and to prevent cancer. (Source: EurekAlert! - Biology)

Researchers detect a loophole in chronic lymphocytic leukemia treatment
(Rockefeller University Press) A team of researchers in Italy and Austria has determined that a drug approved to treat chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) may be less effective in a particular subset of patients. The study, which will be published Jan. 4 in the Journal of Experimental Medicine, reveals that ibrutinib has a diminished capacity to delocalize and kill tumor cells expressing an adhesive protein called CD49d, but combining ibrutinib treatment with drugs that block CD49d activation could prevent the tumor cells from sheltering in lymphoid organs.

Every year in December, stargazers are treated to the spectacle of the Geminid meteor shower. This year, the Geminids will be visible on the night of Dec. 13 into the morning of Dec. 14. They can be seen in their full glory anywhere in the northern hemisphere, and will also be visible in the southern hemisphere — though they will not rise far above the horizon. To see the Geminid meteor shower, it’s best to find a spot as far away from any light sources as possible, wrap up warm, and lie on a blanket facing the sky. Astronomers say the shower will be at its most intense around 2 a.m., when the sky is at its dar...
