the good, the bad and their fortuitous differences

Genetic differences between two very similar fungi, one that led to Quorn, the proprietary meat substitute, and another that ranks among the world's most damaging crop pathogens, have exposed the significant features that dictate the pair's very different lifestyles.

here are 26 differences between sydney's east and west

Illustration by John Shakespeare.When it comes to Sydney's perennial east vs west rivalry, there are plenty of opinions and stereotypes about the spray-tanned, salmon-wearing 'silver tails' and ugg boot-bound bogan 'westies'.And then there are facts.Here, we've used data to explore the actual differences between life in a selection of Sydney's eastern and western suburbs. Some of it's serious, some of it's fun. Nothing here is meant to be perjorative. Because there's no 'superior' Sydney - just different ones.Hopefully this sheds some light on the magnitude of those differences, real or imagined.(This article has a lot of charts so might be a little slower than usual. Bear with us.)

ready for talks with india to resolve cpec differences, says china

China on Monday said it is ready to hold talks with India to resolve their differences on the contentious $50 billion China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) that passes through PoK.Asked about Indian Ambassador to China Gautam Bambawale's interview to state-run "Global Times" in which he had said that differences on the CPEC should not be swept under the carpet, Chinese foreign ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying said China is willing to hold talks with India in this regard."I noted the relevant report. Regarding the CPEC, China has repeatedly reiterated our position. As to the differences between China and India, China stands ready to communicate and hold talks with India to seek a proper solution so that these differences will not affect our general national interests.

epilepsy linked to brain volume and thickness differences

Epilepsy is associated with thickness and volume differences in the grey matter of several brain regions, according to new research led by UCL and the Keck School of Medicine of USC.The largest-ever neuroimaging study of people with epilepsy, published today in Brain, shows that epilepsy involves more widespread physical differences than previously assumed, even in types of epilepsy that are typically considered to be more benign if seizures are under control.The brain abnormalities the researchers identified were subtle, and have not yet been implicated in any loss of function."We found differences in brain matter even in common epilepsies that are often considered to be comparatively benign. While we haven't yet assessed the impact of these differences, our findings suggest there's more

decision-making is shaped by individual differences in the functional brain conn

CHAMPAIGN, Ill. -- Each day brings with it a host of decisions to be made, and each person approaches those decisions differently. A new study by University of Illinois researchers found that these individual differences are associated with variation in specific brain networks - particularly those related to executive, social and perceptual processes.A group of researchers at the Beckman Institute for Advanced Science and Technology at Illinois, led by psychology professor Aron Barbey and postdoctoral researcher Tanveer Talukdar, investigated whether individual differences in brain connectivity were associated with decision-making, using functional MRI and a comprehensive test of decision-making. While prior studies of decision-making have focused on group effects, or the ways everyone's b

epilepsy associated with brain volume, thickness differences: study

Epilepsy, a disorder in which nerve cell activity in the brain is disturbed, is linked to brain volume and thickness differences, according to a study. Epilepsy is a neurological disorder that affects 0.6-1.5% of the global population, comprising many different syndromes and conditions, and defined by a tendency for seizures. The research was led by UCL and the Keck School of Medicine of USC. The largest-ever neuroimaging study of people with epilepsy shows that epilepsy involves more widespread physical differences than previously assumed, even in types of epilepsy that are typically considered to be more benign if seizures are under control. The brain abnormalities the researchers identified were subtle, and have not yet been implicated in any loss of function. "We found differences in b

adam grant: sex differences are overly exaggerated

But I think it’s a travesty when discussions about data devolve into name-calling and threats.

how capuchino seedeaters have such big differences in plumage despite little gen

A Temminck's Seedeater in Horto Florestal de São Paulo, São Paulo city, Brazil. Credit: Dario Sanches/Wikipedia(Phys.org)—A team of researchers from the U.S., Brazil and Argentina has found clues that help explain why southern capuchino seedeaters have such wide differences in plumage despite being so closely genetically matched. In their paper published on the open access site Science Advances, the group describes the genetic analysis they conducted on the South American birds and what they found by doing so.
Southern capuchino seedeaters are a type of song bird, one of a group with familiar finch-like bills. They live in different parts of South America and have evolved in a unique way—the males have widely different plumage coloring and large differences in their songs. Prior research

study finds racial differences in cure rates for hepatitis c

In a large ethnically diverse group of patients seen at a community-based Veterans Affairs practice, cure rates for chronic hepatitis C were lower for African American individuals relative to White individuals, even when patients were receiving optimal therapies. The findings are published in Pharmacology Research & Perspectives.The investigators noted that although the results demonstrate the importance of racial/ethnic differences in chronic hepatitis C, the true causes of these differences remain unclear and should be further explored in prospective studies where drug levels and patient genetics are taken into account.###Disclaimer: AAAS and EurekAlert! are not responsible for the accuracy of news releases posted to EurekAlert! by contributing institutions or for the use of any informat

personality may change when you drink, but less than you think

People typically report substantive changes to their personality when they become intoxicated, but observations from outsiders suggest less drastic differences between "sober" and "drunk" personalities, according to research published in Clinical Psychological Science, a journal of the Association for Psychological Science."We were surprised to find such a discrepancy between drinkers' perceptions of their own alcohol-induced personalities and how observers perceived them," says psychological scientist Rachel Winograd of the University of Missouri, St. Louis--Missouri Institute of Mental Health. "Participants reported experiencing differences in all factors of the Five Factor Model of personality, but extraversion was the only factor robustly perceived to be different across participants i

men and women have different genetic risk factors for developing brain cancer

Glioma is the most common type of primary malignant brain tumor in the United States; glioblastoma being the most common type of glioma in adults. While sex differences in the incidence and survival rates of glioma were known, researchers had not investigated whether genetic differences based on sex could cast light on potential differences in the risk profile of glioma between men and women.Now, a team from Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine, together with an international consortium of researchers, have discovered that men and women have different genetic risk factors for developing glioma.The research was recently published in Scientific Reports. The study involved the work of more than 35 investigators representing more than 30 universities, institutes and government ag

penguins' calls are influenced by their habitat

But while we know a lot about how variations in vocalizations play out between populations of songbirds, it's far less clear how this variation affects birds such as penguins in which calls are inherited. A new study from The Auk: Ornithological Advances examines differences in the calls of Little Penguins from four colonies in Australia--nocturnal birds for whom vocalizations are more important that visual signals--and finds that disparities in habitat, rather than geographic isolation or other factors, seem to b

parameshwara and i are like brothers, says siddaramaiah

Setting aside personal differences, Chief Minister Siddaramaiah and KPCC President Dr G Parameshwara put up a united front at the Janashirvada Yathre rally held at Koratagere, Tumakuru district, on Sunday. Addressing a rally of Congress party workers, Siddaramaiah stressed that Parameshwara must win the polls. "If Parameshwara wins, it is as good as AICC President Rahul Gandhi winning; and if Rahul Gandhi wins; it is a victory for me," the CM said."Parameshwara must not lose at any cost. He has served the party as its state president for seven years. He and I are like brothers. We have no differences of opinion at all. Those are rumours spread by people who want to sully the party's image," Siddaramaiah said. The CM again stressed that the KPCC chief and he had no differences in choosing c

view more Credit: Alex WildBLOOMINGTON, Ind. -- Physical differences between males and females in species are common, but there remains much to learn about the genetic mechanisms behind these differences. New research by scientists at Indiana University finds that the "master gene" that regulates these differences plays a complex role in matching the right physical trait to the right sex. The study, published Feb. 27 in the journal Nature Communications, reveals new details about the behavior of the gene called "doublesex," or dsx."We want to know more about this gene because it helps us answer a major question about developme

major huawei phone leak: p20, pro, lite

Huawei P20, P20 Lite, and P20 Pro leaked this afternoon in a variety of colors. We’ve seen a bit of the Huawei P20 Lite before now, thanks to the FCC, but we’ve not seen anything major for the P20 or P20 Pro up until now. Today that changes in a large way. Today we’re looking at all the models, in all the colors – or at least what’s likely the first several main colors, anyway.These devices likely have 5.84-inch displays – or thereabouts. Recent leaks suggested the display resolutions for these devices to be at or around 2240×1080 pixels. It’s been rumored that the P20 will have an LCD display while the Pro will have OLED. The Lite is also suggested to be coming with an LCD panel.The cameras on these devices are sure to be interesting, especially the Pro. The Pro’s leaked images here sugge

young han solo movie loses directors months into filming

Bad news for Lucasfilm's untitled Han Solo film: directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller are out. With only several weeks left of filming in London, this isn't the news anyone expected. The directing duo, known for The LEGO Movie and 21 Jump Street, issued a statement about their departure, citing "creative differences" with Lucasfilm. (Creative differences is a term often used when a director is fired by the studio.) "Unfortunately, our vision and process weren’t aligned with our partners on this project," they wrote. "We normally aren’t fans of the phrase ‘creative differences' but for once this cliché is true. We are really proud of the amazing and world-class work of our cast and crew."
