Some still attack Darwin and evolution. How can science fight back? | Jules Howard
AN Wilson ’s ‘exposé’ is the latest in a long line of attempts to undermine evolutionary biology. Now scientists must decide how best to counter themI can save you the effort of readingAN Wilson ’s “exposé” on Darwin, which did the rounds over the weekend, characterising the famous scientist as a fraud, a thief, a liar, a racist and a rouser of nazism. Instead, head over to Netflix and watch the creationist made-for-TV movieA Matter of Faith, which covers many of the same arguments – and also includes a final scene in which a fictional evolutionary biologist, standing...

Alcohol linked to an increased risk of skin cancer
Conclusion These findings should be interpreted with care before concluding that an alcoholic drink per day increases your risk of skin cancer. There are several important cautions: These are only observational studies. It wouldn't be possible to randomise people to different alcohol intake and follow them to look at cancer development. And with observational studies, many other health, sociodemographic and lifestyle factors may be influencing the link between alcohol intake and cancer development. The studies differed considerably in terms of the influencing factors they took account of, with some adjusting for various ...

Genomic estimation of complex traits reveals ancient maize adaptation to temperate North America
By 4000 years ago, people had introduced maize to the southwestern United States; full agriculture was established quickly in the lowland deserts but delayed in the temperate highlands for 2000 years. We test if the earliest upland maize was adapted for early flowering, a characteristic of modern temperate maize. We sequenced fifteen 1900-year-old maize cobs from Turkey Pen Shelter in the temperate Southwest. Indirectly validated genomic models predicted that Turkey Pen maize was marginally adapted with respect to flowering, as well as short, tillering, and segregating for yellow kernel color. Temperate adaptation drove mo...

Boris: Stop ignoring human rights in Turkey
Since the failed coup a year ago, Turkey has experienced an unprecedented erosion of democracy, human rights and the rule of law. The ongoing state of emergency, imposed immediately following the coup, has been used by the government to silence its actual and perceived critics, including trade unionists, public service workers, journalists, the judiciary and academics. Public service workers have been amongst the worst hit, with well over 100,000 dismissed for alleged terrorist offences, with little or no evidence.

It is an industry like no other, with profit margins to rival Google – and it was created by one of Britain’s most notorious tycoons: Robert Maxwell. Is the staggeringly profitable business ofscientific publishing actually bad for science? While thinking about scalping: fragments of three ancient skulls found in Turkey have all the hallmarks of being carved with flint after being defleshed first. Archaeologists believe this is more evidence that aneolithic “skull cult” embraced rituals around the heads of the dead.
