Paleontologists unearth Fossils of New Species of Titanosaurian Dinosaur in Tanz

A team of international paleontologists from the Ohio University has unearthed fossils of new species of titanosaurian that once thrived in Tanzania. According to them, these new species belong to the group of large-bodied sauropods that existed during the last period of dinosaur-age in Tanzania.

Researchers Trying to Find Way to help cystic fibrosis patients

Researchers Trying to Find Way to help cystic fibrosis patients

Cystic fibrosis is caused mainly due to a problem in the CFTR gene that helps to manage the movement of salt and water in and out of cells.

Dr. Ryan Harris, director of Laboratory of Integrative Vascular & Exercise Physiology at the Georgia Prevention Institute at Georgia Regents University, said even in case the lungs function normally, cystic fibrosis can impact blood vessels.

Georgia Regents University team is trying to find out whether that is causing exercise intolerance and what intervention might work.

Engaging in Outdoor Activities Ups Risk of Developing Exfoliation Syndrome

Engaging in Outdoor Activities Ups Risk of Developing Exfoliation Syndrome

Researchers have presented strong evidence in the past that climatic factors trigger Exfoliation Syndrome (XFS). Now, a new research suggests that outdoor activities increase the risk of getting diagnosed with this syndrome.

Across the globe, Exfoliation Syndrome (XFS) is considered to be one of the most common causes of glaucoma and cataracts. This syndrome leads to ageing of the eyes and is more widespread among European descents.

How Coffee Plants make Caffeine

How Coffee Plants make Caffeine

Scientists have recently sequenced the genome of Coffea canephora, the main source of coffee beans, to know the origin of caffeine. Many people enjoy coffee every morning for its taste, aroma and to keep their mind alert. Caffeine, a psychoactive substance, is present in coffee and it makes our mind more alert by reducing the level of adenosine in the brain. Excessive presence of adenosine is known to make people feel tired and sleepy.

Researchers discover Skeleton of One of the Biggest Dinosaurs

Researchers have discovered a fossilized skeleton of a new species of gigantic dinosaur that was one of the biggest land animals that ever roamed on the Earth. The Dreadnoughtus schrani dinosaur existed nearly 77 million years ago, which was the Upper Cretaceous period. The researchers unearthed the fossilized remains of the gargantuan creature recently in Argentina's southwestern Patagonia.

Mystery behind Moving Rocks in California’s Death Valley National Park solved

Mystery behind Moving Rocks in California’s Death Valley National Park solved

Scientists have finally lifted off the lid from the secret behind sailing stones in California's Death Valley National Park. Richard Norris, 55, a palaeobiologist at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography, and James, 59, a research engineer, went at the site in 2011. They found in 2013 that a light wind helped move the ice across the surface of the water and into rocks weighing almost 100 kg. Visitors and scientists have been long puzzled by rocks that moved across flat dirt in the heart of the hottest, driest place on Earth.

Dry Spell helps Researchers Unravel Mystery behind Stonehenge's Circle

Dry Spell helps Researchers Unravel Mystery behind Stonehenge's Circle

Scientists have finally unraveled a centuries-old mystery surrounding Britain's Stonehenge monument. Scientists were helped by an exceptionally dry summer and a water hose that was too short to understand the secret behind Stonehenge's Circle. The ancient stones have been long argued to be present in a complete circle and scientists have now confirmed that the dried-up grass around Stonehenge suggests that they did make a circle.
