A new report by the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine (NASEM), entitled Learning through Citizen Science, has called for diversity in citizen science.

Hurdles to workers' and capital's flow between firms: The roots of sluggish productivity
(Bocconi University) Since the financial crisis of 2007, with no seeming reason, productivity growth has been slowing down in all the major economies. Part of the explanation of this productivity puzzle in advanced economies may lie in a generalized difficulty of reallocating resources between firms in the same industry and in the same geographical area, a new study by Gianmarco Ottaviano, Professor of Economics at Bocconi University, and colleagues, finds.

What Helps Individuals with Bipolar II Disorder Successfully Manage Their Illness
For the first three decades of Julie Kraft’s life, every day was a struggle. “From the minute I woke up to the moment my head hit the pillow each night, my mind would spin with worries and fears—most of them irrational—about the past, present and the future,” Kraft said. “I was anxious over every aspect of normal daily life—showering, driving, shopping, paying bills, answering the phone, school drop-offs, birthday parties. There was rarely a waking moment when my mind was quiet.” Outside of her home, Kraft did her best to hide these struggles, which only exhausted and frustrated her more. Inside, however, t...
