    3. Why Western men have suffered a 50% decline in sperm count over four decades

      Sperm counts -- measured by sperm concentration or total sperm count -- declined by 1.4% per year on average among men from North America, Europe and Australia between 1973 and 2011, a new study (https://academic.oup.com/humupd/article/doi/10.1093/humupd/dmx022/4035689/Temporal-trends-in-sperm-count-a-systematic-review) published in the journal Human Reproductive Health found. Overall, sperm counts fell between 50% and 60% over those 38 years, with no evidence of a leveling off in recent years. This significant decline in male reproductive health "has serious implications beyond fertility concerns," it concluded. The researchers analyzed samples from nearly 43,000 men ...

      UAlbany professors' database tracks terrorist groups

      Albany When Australian experts wanted to know which terrorist groups pay pirates to capture ships, steal cargo and ransom the crews to provide new revenue for terrorists, they teamed up with two University of Albany professors to find the answers. Karl Rethemeyer, interim dean of Rockefeller College of Public Affairs & Policy, and political science associate professor Victor Asal are creators of a database named BAAD — Big, Allied and Dangerous. BAAD is packed with in-depth information on hundreds of terrorist groups, their alliances and whether those ties are based on religion, ideology, affection or cold cash. BAAD can also monitor which ...

      Israel’s vital contributions to nanotechnology

      Yeshayahu Talmon is a chemical engineer and former director of the Russell Berrie Nanotechnology Institute (RBNI) at the Technion-Israel Institute of Technology, in Haifa. A frequent spokesman for the industry, he answers even laymen’s questions patiently and lucidly, and offers positive news about Israel as a “nucleus” for nanoscience. “Nanoscience is the science of everything that happens on that very small scale. Now, technology is being developed to take that science and apply it,” says Talmon. “One example of applications we are working with at the Russell Berrie Nanotech Institute is carbon nanotubes. Carbon nanotubes are only one to ...

    11. The infertility crisis is beyond doubt. Now scientists must find the cause | Science

      The topic has become the mainstay of dystopian science fiction. Our world is afflicted by widespread infertility and childless civilisations are left hovering on the brink of collapse. Children of Men and The Handmaid’s Tale provide perfect examples of these unsettling narratives. Yet the scenarios outlined in these books and dramatisations may be less fanciful than is first supposed. Indeed, reaction to a study of male infertility, published last week, suggests we may already be hurtling towards such a fate. According to scientists at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, sperm counts among men in the west have more than ...

      How Glowing Soil Can Help Find Land Mines | Innovation | Smithsonian

      In a time when there is much talk of a “Mother of All Bombs” and the possibility of a conflict involving nuclear weapons, a landmine can seem an artifact of conflicts past, a weapon that has little to do with mass destruction.

      And yet, the prosaic device continues to induce its own form of terror around the world, sometimes long after wars have ended. In 2015, the number of people killed or maimed by land mines and other explosive remnants of war rose to 6,461, an increase of 75 percent, according to the 2016 Landmine Monitor. The big jump ...

      Int’l team including Hebrew U scientists restore flavor to tomatoes

      Remember the good old days when tomatoes used to taste like... tomatoes, with a lot of flavor? In pursuit of longer shelf life, enhanced firmness and disease resistance, modern commercial tomatoes have gradually lost it.

      After a decade of research, Hebrew University of Jerusalem researchers, as part of an international team that included US, Chinese and Spanish scientists, have identified the chemical compounds and the functional genes that give a tomato – Israelis’ favorite salad component – its great taste.

      The study, published in the journal Science, has made it possible to produce tomatoes with their good old flavor, alongside other traits ...
