Children born prematurely have greater risk of cognitive difficulties later in life
Babies born preterm have a greater risk of developing cognitive, motor and behavioural difficulties and these problems persist throughout school years, finds a new study led by Queen Mary University of London (QMUL). Wednesday 11 October 2017 The research found that preterm children had lower scores on IQ tests, motor skills, reading and spelling at primary school age, and that this remained through to secondary school.

Wind turbines can pick up the slack on coldest days
Wind turbines can pick up the slack on coldest days
Winter days are usually less windy, but a new analysis shows turbines work harder on the coldest days, when power demand is highest. During winter in Great Britain, warmer periods are often windier, while colder periods are often calmer, due to the prevailing weather patterns. Colder periods are also when electricity demand increases.

Focusing on mechanics may be key in unlocking the heart’s ability to heal itself
Fish do it, amphibians do it, so why can't we' Scientists are questioning why human hearts lose the ability to regenerate, while other animals don't. In a perspective piece researchers from Imperial College London suggest that the loss of this ability may be down to the way the human heart develops.

Nanoscale images reveal bacteria motor parts in unprecedented detail
Nanoscopic 3D imaging has revealed how different bacteria have geared their tiny propeller motors for a wide range of swimming abilities. Many bacteria swim using flagella - long tails that are attached to tiny motors made of proteins, just tens of nanometres wide. These motors spin the flagella, which work as nanoscale propellers to drive the bacterium forward.
