Science of the Week--10/31/14

Happy Halloween! To all of you who are participating in National Novel Writing Month tomorrow, good luck! I have too many works-in-progress to start a new one for NaNoWriMo this year. I'm working on the final section of Scattered Seasons, the second book in the Season Avatar series, so my modest goal for the month is to finish it. Once that's done, I'll return to the Catalyst Chronicles series for the rest of the year.

Anyway, here are some of the most interesting science news articles I read this week:

Growing a blood vessel in a week

Ebola's evolutionary roots more ancient than previously thought

Newly discovered microbe is key in climate change

Dinosaur noses enhanced smelling and cooled brain

How cells know which way to go

It's better for memory to make mistakes while learning

Cutting power could dramatically boost laser output

Scientists engineer toxin-secreting stem cells to treat brain tumors

Slowing the biological clock to aid pregnancy

Have a good weekend, everyone, and see you Monday!

Good luck with both projects. No NaNo for me this year. Too busy planning for my next release and the IWSG book.
