It's hard to believe the first month of 2015 is almost over, isn't it? It's been a pretty busy one for me. Anyone still on track with their New Year's resolutions?
Here are some of the most interesting science news articles I read this week:
Tonal languages require humidity
Lucid dreams and metacognition: awareness of thinking--awareness of dreaming
From fiction to science: can stem cells be regulated to replace aged, damaged, and missing tissues?
Mothers' "baby talk" is less clear than adult speech
Trust your gut: E. coli may hold one of the keys to treating Parkinson's
New space telescope concept could image objects at higher resolution than Hubble
The "fifth taste," umami, could be beneficial for health
Scientists work out how to unboil eggs (or at least part of them)

(Ironic that the last two articles came out the same day, isn't it?)
Have a good weekend, and see you Monday!
