    Women are being lulled into a false sense of security that IVF treatment will enable them to become middle-age mothers, a world-leading expert has warned. Professor Cornelis Lambalk, editor-in-chief of the influential medical journal Human Reproduction, said delaying parenthood as a result was a risky strategy. He was responding to a recent Australian study, published in Human Reproduction, which found use of 'assisted reproductive technology' (ART) in women over 40 has risen by more than half over the last decade.  'ART' is an umbrella term for medical techniques that aid conception, including in vitro fertilisation (IVF) and intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI). In the UK, the number of IVF treatments given to women over 40 rose by 41 per cent between 2009 and 2019, from around 10,200 IVF 'cycles' to 14,400. Prof Lambalk, a gynaecologist at Amsterdam University Medical Centres in the Netherlands, said that while ART was 'very useful for many fertility disorders', its limited effectiveness meant it was 'not clearly the treatment of choice for the natural age-related decline in fertility'.  Women should not rely on IVF treatment to...

    Orangutan mothers gradually adjust how much food they share with their offspring to help them learn quicker and become independent, scientists in Germany reveal.    The researchers, from Max Planck Institute of Animal Behavior in Konstanz, analysed behaviour between orangutan mothers and infants in Sumatra, Indonesia.   They claim to have uncovered the first evidence yet of active involvement by orangutan mothers in their offspring's learning of new skills.   When orangutan mothers are foraging, they 'tailor their behaviour' to match the age and abilities of their offspring, thereby helping their young to learn.   Once the orangutan infants become independent, the mothers can reproduce again, so tailoring their behaviour in this way is beneficial for the mothers too.  Much like humans, orangutans rely on their mothers to learn life skills - such as what to eat and where to find it. Pictured is a female orangutan holding a baby 'Immature orangutans acquire their feeding skills over several years, via social and independent learning,' the researchers say in their research paper. 'So far, it has remained uninvestigated to what extent orangutan mothers are actively involved in this...

    Money really can buy you happiness, no matter how rich you get, a new study has revealed. It has long been thought that wealth improves people’s lives up to a certain point, but then stops making a difference.  Previous research suggested the point at which money no longer led to more happiness was around $75,000 (£55,400) a year.  However, the new study suggests that feelings of wellbeing continue to rise with increasing income, and that there is no limit to the effect. Money really can buy you happiness, no matter how rich you get, a new study has revealed (stock image) In the study, Dr Matthew Killingsworth from the University of Pennsylvania looked at the link between wealth and wellbeing. To assess this link, Dr Killingsworth analysed 1,725,994 real-time reports of experienced wellbeing from 33,391 employed US adults. At random times throughout their waking hours, participants were prompted by their smartphones to answer the question 'How do you feel right now?' Previous research suggested the point at which money no longer led to more happiness was around $75,000 (£55,400)...
    People who are prone to high levels of absorption in mental tasks and activities are more likely to claim to be able to 'hear the dead', a new study has revealed. Scientists have uncovered the key trait in 'clairaudient spiritualist mediums' who claim to able to hear the voices of dead people. Their results suggest that people who are prone to immersive mental activities, as well as those who were exposed to an 'unusual auditory experience' in early life, are more likely to claim to be able to communicate with the deceased. The team hopes the findings will help to understand more about distressing or non-controllable experiences of hearing voices.

    (CNN)The predator might soon become the prey if Florida scientists can confirm that Burmese pythons -- an extremely invasive species in the Everglades -- are safe for us to eat.The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission is collaborating with the Florida Department of Health to investigate the mercury levels in pythons to determine if they can be safely consumed. If so, the snakes may soon end up on restaurant menus and dinner tables across the state.Florida putting squeeze on invasive snakes with Python Challenge huntPythons are nonvenomous constrictors primarily found in south Florida where they have posed a serious risk to native wildlife in the region. The snake is not native to the state, and began appearing in the Everglades in the 1980s when it was likely introduced as an escaped or released pet.The FWC encourages residents to remove and humanely kill pythons when they can at any time during the year, and to report any sightings to officials."It is early on in the process for the mercury study.

    In June, Reddit issued a new content policy that explicitly banned "communities and users that promote hate based on identity or vulnerability," following pressure from users. Several moderators of Black-designated subreddits spoke with Insider about their experience on the platform, which they say brings community, entertainment, and an onslaught of harassment.  In the past, moderators of Black communities on the platform have had to implement their own safeguards against hate speech. Tactics have included going private, banning users, and, in one case, implementing a privacy feature called "country-club mode." While many say Reddit has not been sufficiently responsive in the past, recent measures are a "good first step" in moving forward, according to some moderators.  Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. When the Reddit user TheYellowRose joined the platform in 2012, she was simply looking to "pursue memes." But the now 30-year-old health inspector, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because of safety and privacy concerns, quickly learned that as a Black woman, her experience on Reddit would not be as simple as posting and browsing entertaining...
    This article is reprinted by permission from NextAvenue.org. It is part of the America’s Entrepreneurs Special Report. There are “unique challenges with a family business, particularly when it comes to making tough decisions in difficult times,” a friend of mine who runs a leisure and hospitality business with her siblings, wrote me this week. I had sent her a note asking how things were going since the coronavirus closed the doors on myriad enterprises and I knew her industry was particularly slammed. She thanked me and said the question was a little “close to the bone.” But, she added, “Having a strong brand identity established by our parents has frankly been a beacon of light and inspiration during a very dark period.” I decided not to press her about what the company has been faced with, knowing that the situation is very personal for family business owners. The repercussions of making tough professional decisions can have a lasting impact on family relationships. (For more on this and other advice for family business owners, check out Familybusiness.org.) “This crisis is forcing family businesses to make trade-offs...
    Caroline Chen June 22, 2020 11:30AM (UTC) This article originally appeared on ProPublica. It's been six months since researchers in China said they had identified a novel coronavirus spreading in the city of Wuhan. Hope and desire for a vaccine to end the global devastation is growing with each passing week. Almost every day, I hear people making plans around the eventual arrival of a coronavirus vaccine — office reopenings, rescheduled weddings, family reunions and international travel. In recent weeks, colleagues and friends have asked me with growing urgency: "When will we have a vaccine? Will it be any good?" : At the same time, other friends have been telling me, "When I hear that this is going to be the fastest vaccine developed ever, that doesn't make me feel good — it makes me feel nervous that they're going to cut corners." These questions and concerns resonate with me. I, too, want a vaccine, but I want reassurance that it's truly safe and effective. So I talked to a dozen people in the vaccine world: scientists, pediatricians, pharmaceutical...
