Scientists to Hunt for DNA Traces of Loch Ness MonsterNext month, however, an international team of scientists led by Neil Gemmell from the University of Otago, New Zealand, will conduct an investigation into the waters of the famous loch which could help to settle the mystery once and for all. The scientists will sample the water using so-called environmental DNA (eDNA), which will enable them to identify tiny remnants of genetic material left behind by any life in the loch. This technique will allow them to create a detailed list of all organisms living in the waters and determine whether anything unusual?a larger marine monster, for example?resides there.

Physicists with green fingers estimate tree spanning rate in random networks

Networks are often described as trees with spanning branches. How the tree branches out depends on the logic behind the network's expansion, such as random expansion. However, some aspects of such randomly expanding networks are invariant; in other words, they display the same characteristics, regardless of the network's scale. As a result, the entire network has the same shape as one or more of its parts.

Studies have shown that for young people, simply being around peers from different ethnic and racial backgrounds may not be enough to improve attitudes toward other groups. Instead, children and adolescents also need to value spending time and forming relationships with peers from diverse groups. A new study examined how friends in middle school affect each other's attitudes about interacting with peers of different ethnicities and races, finding that they significantly influence each other's racial and ethnic views.
