Brain Scans Reveal Why “Night Owls” Have It Rough in a 9-to-5 Society: Study

by Sarah Sloat, INVERSE

The results explain why we need to “create more flexibility in our society.”

The 9-to-5 workday originated with American labor unions in the 1800s, and today, the eight-hour workday is the norm. But however normalized the schedule, it is directly opposed to something more powerful: biology.

Simple drug combination creates new neurons from neighboring cells

by Jiu-Chao Yin, Gail Mccormick, Pennsylvania State University, Medical Xpress

A simple drug cocktail that converts cells neighboring damaged neurons into functional new neurons could potentially be used to treat stroke, Alzheimer’s disease, and brain injuries. A team of researchers at Penn State identified a set of four, or even three, molecules that could convert glial cells—which normally provide support and insulation for neurons—into new neurons. A paper describing the approach appears online in the journal Stem Cell Reports on February 7, 2019.

Thieves and hackers are getting better at bypassing iCloud to unlock iPhones

by Andy Meek, BGR

In yet another sign of the mobile-first world we live in, even muggings and robberies are starting to take on a tech-savvy flair. As was the case during one 2017 incident in Washington DC, for example, when a woman was leaving a metro station and a teenager got the drop on her, grabbing her around the neck. He instructed her to keep quiet. And to delete her iCloud. Then he grabbed her iPhone 6S and took off.

Kepler’s final photos, and how you can see raw data

by Chris Burns, Slash Gear

The first and last images captured by the NASA-JPL space telescope Kepler are shown here side-by-side. This craft was launched back on March 7th, 2009, and its planned mission duration was 3.5 years. A full 9 years, 7 months, and 23 days later, it was still doing work. Now that span is over, and the final data’s come in.
