How far out we can predict the weather, and an ocean robot that monitors food webs
The app on your phone tells you the weather for the next 10 days —that’s the furthest forecasters have ever been able to predict. In fact, every decade for the past hundred years, a day has been added to the total forecast length. But we may be approaching a limit—thanks to chaos inherent in the atmosphere. Staff writer Paul Voosen joins host Sarah Crespi t o talk about how researchers have determined that we will only be adding about 5 more days to our weather prediction apps. Also this week, host Meagan Cantwell interviews Trygve Fossum from the Norwegian University of Science and Technology in Trondhe...

Legendary Viking crystals, and how to put an octopus to sleep
A millennium ago, Viking navigators may have used crystals known as “sunstones” to navigate between Norway and Greenland. Sarah Crespi talks with Online News Editor David Grimm about how one might use a crystal to figure out where they are. Sarah also interviews freelancer Danna Staaf about her piece on sedating cephalopods.

What factors influence the delivery of care by skilled birth attendants in low- and middle-income countries?
Despite recent improvements in maternity care, as called for in the Millennium Development Goals, many mothers still die during childbirth in low- and middle-income countries. As part of the efforts to achieve further improvements, a new Cochrane systematic review of qualitative studies from November 2017 looks at the factors that can influence a skilled birth attendant ’s ability to provide good quality maternity care. We asked lead author, Susan Munabi-Babigumira from the Norwegian Institute of Public Health to tell us more in this podcast. (Source: Podcasts from The Cochrane Library)

In a new review from February 2017, Heather Ames, from the Norwegian Knowledge Centre for the Health Services at the Norwegian Institute of Public Health in Oslo, and colleagues have done this to explore how parents experience communication about vaccination for children.

Barriers and facilitators to the implementation of lay health worker programmes to improve access to maternal and child health: qualitative evidence synthesis (Norwegian version)
Most Cochrane Reviews compare the effects of different interventions or strategies on outcomes. But, we are now seeing reviews that use qualitative research evidence to explore why things happen, more than what things happen. Claire Glenton from the Norwegian Knowledge Centre for the Health Services in Oslo describes one of the early examples of this type of review. The review was written by a team from Norway, South Africa, the UK and Iran and was published in October 2013 and looks at the role of lay health workers in maternal and child health. read more (Source: Podcasts from The Cochrane Library)
