Uber announces Uber Lite for Indian market; here are the app's unique features 13.6.2018 DNA: Wide Angle
Uber on Tuesday announced the launch of a newer version of its app - Uber Lite, specifically made and designed for Indian Android users. With a logo that is different from its quintessential black and white, the Uber Lite app sports a blue-and-white colour scheme.

Social ties may preserve memory, slow brain ageing 31.5.2018 General News
A strong social network of friends and family may help preserve memory and protect it from the ill effects of ageing, a study in mice suggests. Scientists from the Ohio State University in the US found that mice housed in groups had better memories and healthier brains than animals that lived in pairs. The discovery bolsters a body of research in humans and animals that supports the role of social connections in preserving the mind and improving quality of life, said Elizabeth Kirby, an assistant professor at Ohio State. "Our research suggests that merely having a larger social network can positively influence the ageing brain," said Kirby, lead researcher of the study published in the journal Frontiers in Aging Neuroscience. "We know that in humans there's a strong correlation between cognitive health and social connections, but we don't know if it is having a group of friends that's protecting people or if it's that people with declining brain health withdraw from their human ...

Scottish researchers discover novel malaria parasite behaviour 24.5.2018 General News
Researchers from a Scottish university have demonstrated a novel parasite behaviour which offers a potential new target for malaria diagnosis and intervention. The new discovery in the parasite's biology is revealed across a set of three studies led by the University of Glasgow's Wellcome Centre for Molecular Parasitology, which are published in 'Nature Communications', 'Science Advances' and 'MBio' journals this week. Malaria, a blood borne disease caused by single cell parasites, remains a major global public health issue with millions of cases, and nearly half a million deaths every year. The researchers have discovered that malaria parasites can occupy sites outside the bloodstream, specifically in the bone marrow and spleen where red blood cells are formed. The studies show in animal models and human infection that this is the major niche for the development of malaria transmission stages and a significant reservoir for the parasite's replicative stages. The researchers ...

PriceMap offers India's first product and price discovery platform for offline retail 19.5.2018 General News
People often have this notion that online-shopping gets them authentic and genuine products at the cheapest available price. Well, what if they are told that, this isn't the case?The e-commerce business sustains on the fact that a buyer wouldn't spend hours visiting markets-by-markets to compare offline-online prices and will thereby end up buying online without knowing that that the same product might be available at a shop nearby at better than online price!And this is very true as the buyers have no clue as to which shops nearby have their desired product in stock and which one is offering the best price. So, they eventually end up ordering online as it saves them time and they "assume" that ordering online saves them money! Also, many prefer ordering online for they want to save their precious time of roaming from one shop to another.Well, not anymore!

First stars formed 250 million years after Big Bang, explains study 17.5.2018 DNA: Urban Tales
The earliest stars may have been forged just 250 million years after the Big Bang, say scientists who observed a galaxy at a record-setting distance of 13.28 billion light-years from Earth. Scientists using the the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) found faint, telltale signature of oxygen coming from the galaxy - which is seen as it appeared when the universe was only 500 million years old. For such a young galaxy, known as MACS1149-JD1, to contain detectable traces of oxygen, it must have begun forging stars even earlier - a scant 250 million years after the Big Bang. This is exceptionally early in the history of the universe and suggests that rich chemical environments evolved quickly, according to the study published in the journal Nature "This extremely distant, extremely young galaxy has a remarkable chemical maturity to it," said Wei Zheng, an astronomer at Johns Hopkins University in the US, who led the discovery of this galaxy with the Hubble Space Telescope. "It is truly ...

Sniffing out malaria 15.5.2018 General News
Turns out, an altered body odour can indicate a specific infection among humans.According to a study conducted by the Penn State, suddenly altered body odour indicates malaria even if the microscope doesn't.Typhoid Mary may have infected a hundred or more people, but asymptomatic carriers of malaria infect far more people every year. An international team of researchers was working toward a way to identify malaria patients including infected individuals who show no malaria symptoms and hence made the interesting discovery.People who have malaria but are not symptomatic abound in the heaviest areas of malaria infestation. Even blood tests do not necessarily pick up the infection with the Plasmodium parasite, especially at low parasite densities. DNA tests for the parasite usually show infection, but they are far from rapid."Our previous work in a mouse model found that malaria infection altered the odours of infected mice in ways that made them more attractive to mosquitoes, ...
