Decoded: Why depression affects sleep

"The understanding that we develop here is consistent with areas of the brain involved in short-term memory, the self, and negative emotion being highly connected in depression, and that this results in increased ruminating thoughts which ar...
Why the moon turns red during a total lunar eclipse

Why the moon turns red during a total lunar eclipse

Health
If the moon is in Earth's shadow during a lunar eclipse, how can we still see it? And why does it turn red? The answer has to do with our own terrestrial sunrises and sunsets. Following is a transcript of the video. Narrator: A blood moon lunar eclipse wasn't always something to look forward to. When the moon turned red thousands of year ago, the ancient Mayans and Mesopotamians feared that something monstrous and evil was eating the moon. They would shout at the night sky to try and fend off the ravenous beasts. And since the average lunar eclipse lasts around 100 minutes, when the moon returns to normal afterward, they were probably convinced that their whooping and howling actually worked. We know now that the moon doesn't need our protection. ...

Believe your sunscreen is keeping you safe? Think again

Believe your sunscreen is keeping you safe? Think again

Health
WASHINGTON D.C. [USA]: Using sunscreens? You might be receiving less than half the sun protection you think you do. Researchers from King's College London have assessed just how much sun protection people actually receive, based on typical usage. It is well known that people don't receive the full ultraviolet radiation blocking benefit of sunscreens because they are applying it more thinly than manufacturers recommend. In the first experiment of its kind, the King's team assessed the DNA damage in the skin after lowering sunscreen application thickness below 2mg/cm2 - the amount manufacturers use to achieve their SPF rating. Results showed that sunscreen with a sun protection factor (SPF) of 50, applied in a typical way, would at best provide 40% of the expected protection...
