...ory described how the ridges appear because of the interplay of different effects. If there is some sort of bump on the icicle, as can randomly happen, it will tend to enlarge because the bump increases the area through which the icicle can dump the heat in water flowing over it into the colder air. So more wa...

NSF awards $37.9 million in grants to study biocomplexity in the environment

When mistreated children act out later in life: Brain gene may play a role, study says

...isk for antisocial behavior. It's the story of the interplay between a gene and the experience of maltreatment," Moffit said. Among the males in the study, those who had a variation of a certain gene and had experienced childhood maltreatment made up 12 percent of the whole male population. They made up 22 per...
