Researchers revolt against weekend conferences

tl;dr - The reason it's tough to attract women and minorities to STEM may be that family time is compromised by having to go to another city to attend a conference on your own time.

Plausible photomolecular effect leading to water evaporation exceeding the thermal limit

tl;dr - Light alone seems to be able to evaporate water, better than air alone seems to, so that is new.

Bizarre blip: Cases of fetuses with flipped organs quadrupled in China

$1:
Doctors in China are reporting a startling and unexplained spike in fetuses with situs inversus, a rare congenital condition in which the organs in the chest and abdomen are arranged in a mirror image of their normal positions.

In the first seven months of 2023, the rate of fetuses identified with the condition quadrupled compared with historic rates, according to a brief report appearing in the New England Journal of Medicine Thursday.

For the report, doctors from two big obstetric centers in the cities of Shanghai and Changsha combined their centers' clinical records from January 2014 through July 2023. The doctors found that from 2014 to 2022, the yearly total of situs inversus cases was typically about five to six per 10,000 pregnant people undergoing ultrasounds. But, in 2023, the rate jumped to nearly 24 cases per 10,000 ultrasound screenings.

Looking at the 2023 cases by month, the researchers noted that the surge in situs inversus began in April and continued to June before returning to background rates in July. In all, there were 56 cases of situs inversus between January and July of 2023 among 23,746 pregnant people undergoing ultrasounds.

Detection and quantification of various microplastics in human endometrium based on laser direct infrared spectroscopy


$1:
Microplastics have been detected in human endometrium samples for the first time.


The characteristics of microplastics were identified qualitatively and quantitatively through laser direct infrared.


Drinking habits might be correlated with a higher level of microplastic exposure in human body.


Chewing gum is potentially associated with microplastic exposure.



Bottled drinks and gum are killing us.
