December 15, 2022 When the United States began vaccinating against the measles virus in the 1960s, children fortunately stopped getting measles. But that wasn’t the only thing; suddenly, American children had plummeting risks of dying from all sorts of other infectious diseases, too. The same thing happened in European countries joining the effort. But how can a vaccine protect against infections that it’s not … [Read more...] about Can a Virus Age You?

A swift turnaround from the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission gave the media whiplash earlier this week. On Monday, a commissioner from the watchdog agency, Richard Trumka Jr., indicated CPSC was considering new restrictions on gas stoves over mounting health concerns. Then, after an overwrought backlash mainly from the political right, the federal regulator backed off . “I am not looking to ban gas stoves and the CPSC has no proceeding to do so,” Alexander Hoehn-Saric, CPSC’s chair, wrote in a tweeted statement . Trumka, too, clarified that any CPSC action wouldn’t impact existing stoves, just new products. But the damage was done. Overnight, gas stoves became symbol of possible government overreach. (Mostly) Republican politicians took to Twitter to voice their outrage and opposition to the idea of the feds dictating anything about household appliances. And those reactions, diatribes, and posts are still coming—despite the CPSC saying it, again, is not … [Read more...] about The Dumbest Reactions to the Non-Existent Gas Stove Ban
What is it that made South Carolina head coach Shane Beamer’s TikTok song-and-dance challenge to Soulja Boy seem effortlessly cool (so cool, in fact, that Soulja Boy himself retweeted it), while Clemson’s Dabo Swinney was near-universally clowned on for doing the popular “Griddy” dance (somewhat overlooking the fact that he was raising money for breast cancer in the video)? Why is it that we still make fun of Brian Kelly’s awkward dance video with a recruit who he later lost yet we love Lane Kiffin making a goofy Twitter account for his dog?

2016’s Doom reimagined the classic shooter into a frantic but modern mold. The bloody escapades of the Doom Slayer were rife with bullets and guts. It was a grimy video game hamburger. Doom Eternal is bigger and bloodier, almost to the point of excess. It’s the same hamburger dipped into a vat of delicious special sauce. Except the serving size is so big that it’s hard not to feel a little sick afterwards. Nonetheless Doom Eternal is incredible. It is a hellaciously bold step forward from the soft-rebooted series that will satisfy even the stodgiest of old school Doom fans. If you want to rip and tear, there’s arguably no better place than Doom Eternal . It also wants to juggle too many balls. There are additions to the combat system, a slew of unlockable items, online multiplayer pitting man against demons, dozens of gun upgrades, a lot more ancient lore, and story connections to older games that offer surprising revelations. Doom Eternal operates on a single maxim: … [Read more...] about Doom Eternal: The Kotaku Review
Chemical flame retardants can make us safer by preventing or slowing fires, but they’re linked to a range of unsettling health effects . To get around that concern, researchers with the U.S. Department of Agriculture have bred a new population of cotton that can self-extinguish after encountering a flame.

Thyssen, bred 10 strains of cotton using alleles from 10 different parent cultivars.

Their work is published today in PLOS One . “Use of … [Read more...] about Researchers Breed Naturally Flame-Resistant Cotton
