Neanderthals and modern humans made babies 47,000 years ago
Most people alive today carry traces of genes inherited from Neanderthals—the enduring legacy of prehistoric hookups with our extinct cousins. But researchers have long debated when and where that mingling happened, and whether these were one-off romps or commonplace trysts. Now, an analysis of ancient and modern genomes suggests contemporary people’s Neanderthal DNA came from a single, prolonged period of mixing some 47,000 years ago . The findings—released last week as a bioRxiv preprint that has yet to undergo peer review—sharpen the timeline for this critical and mysterious juncture in human his...

' Financial toxicity' screening for cancer care needs improvement
Screening for "financial toxicity" (FT) in cancer care could use improvement in the U.S., according to a review published May 16 in the Journal of the American College of Radiology.The term refers to " the objective, subjective, and behavioral patient-level impact of the costs of cancer care," wrote a team led by Nadia Samaha of Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore. The group found that factors associated with worse financial toxicity for patients when it came to cancer care included being younger, having lower income and education, being of color, and having cancer at a more advanced stage."With the ever-escalating cost ...

Where did Earth ’s oddball ‘quasi-moon’ come from? Scientists pinpoint famed lunar crater
Astronomers suspect an unusual near-Earth rocky object is not a typical escapee from the Solar System’s asteroid belt, but is instead a chunk of the Moon blasted into space eons ago by a spectacular impact. Now, a team of researchers has modeled what sort of lunar impact could have ejected such a gobbet of Moon and deposit it in a stable, nearby orbit. Surprisingly, only one strong candidate emerged: the asteroid strike that created the famous Giordano Bruno crater, the youngest large crater on the Moon, the group reports today in Nature Astronomy . “The authors’ modeling techniques are soli...
