Leave it to video gamers to find a better way to shepherd proteins into their optimal three-dimensional shapes.
Plying a freely available game and matched against automated computer routines designed to ascertain how amino acids twist into their ideal shapes, science journal Nature reports video gamers took top marks, folding proteins better than a computer.

We work up an apetite for sweets when working on the computer.
Computers can make you fat – and not just from lack of exercise. Research shows that staring at a computer screen makes us work up an appetite for sweet treats like chocolate cake and biscuits.
It is thought that the mental stress of computer work triggers changes in blood sugar and hormone levels that trick the brain into thinking it has worked off lots of calories that need replaced.

Around 1 million people die each year from malaria, most of them children, from a parasitic infection transmitted by mosquitoes. Researchers have created a mosquito that is unable to infect humans with malaria.
The University of Arizona team reported that their genetically modified mosquitoes are immune to the malaria-causing parasite, a single-cell organism called Plasmodium.
It may well possibly one day replace wild mosquitoes with lab-bred mosquitoes that cannot infect humans with malaria, researchers said.
British researchers may have uncovered a partial answer to the age-old question, “what came first the chicken or the egg?”
According to a team, comprising researchers from the University of Warwick and the University of Sheffield, the answer is “chicken” or at least a particular chicken protein.
There is, however, a further twist – this particular chicken protein turns out to come both first and last. That neat trick it performs provides new insights into control of crystal growth which is key to egg shell production.

They also changed product warranties, deleted product and home page banners, etc.
Just like MTV, it was hip but not anymore
We feared this day would come, but someone obviously had to be brave enough to break the news to the general public. The artist occasionally known as Prince has been kind enough to divulge some of his wisdom with the great unwashed, and it appears that the internet is a thing of the past.
