At long last, The Force Awakens! My family and I were supposed to see the movie last night, but since my son had his tae-kwon-do test then, we had to reschedule. Luckily we were able to get tickets for this evening. No spoilers, please!
Anyway, here are some of the most interesting science news articles I read this week:
Helping others dampens the effects of everyday stress
New microscope create near-real-time videos of nanoscale process
U mad bro? Computers now know when you're angry
New results from world's most sensitive dark matter detector
Humans evolved to get better sleep in less time
(This doesn't explain my insomnia, though)
Fish oil helps transform fat cells from storage to burning
I'm not sure yet how much blogging I'll do over the holidays. While I have the next two weeks off, I expect to spend most of my time taking care of household chores and my son, seeing family, and writing/editing. I need to plan some down time for myself too. Whatever you have planned for the rest of the month, enjoy it!
