But reunited couples and families will have work to do in the months that follow, says Leanne Knobloch, a University of Illinois communication professor who has studied the relationships of military families post-deployment for about five years – and is starting new research funded by the U.S. Department of Defense. http://news.illinois.edu/news/14/0730amberfossils_SamHeads.html Diana Yates, Life Sciences Editor Science http://illinois.edu/lb/article/19/86273 Wed, 30 Jul 2014 09:00:00 CDT Illinois News Bureau: Research Scientists are searching through a massive collection of 20-million-year-old amber found in the Dominican Republic more than 50 years ago, and the effort is yielding fresh insights into ancient tropical insects and the world they inhabited. http://news.illinois.edu/news/14/0729OBannonsuit_MichaelLeRoy.html Phil Ciciora, Business & Law Editor Business http://illinois.edu/lb/article/19/86255 Tue, 29 Jul 2014 13:15:00 CDT Illinois News Bureau: Research As the collegiate sports world awaits a federal judge’s ruling in O’Bannon v. NCAA, the sport’s governing body ought to be prepared to lose, as trial courts in the 9th Circuit are more â€Å“player-friendly” than trial courts in all other circuits, according to a statistical analysis from a University of Illinois expert in labor relations and collective bargaining in athletics. http://news.illinois.edu/news/14/0729socialskills_AronBarbey.html Diana Yates, Life Sciences Editor Science http://illinois.edu/lb/article/19/86242 Tue, 29 Jul 2014 10:00:00 CDT Illinois News Bureau: Research By studying the injuries and aptitudes of Vietnam War veterans who suffered penetrating head wounds during the war, scientists are tackling -- and beginning to answer -- longstanding questions about how the brain works. http://www.news.illinois.edu/news/14/0723indulgence_RaviMehta.html Phil Ciciora, Business & Law Editor Business http://illinois.edu/lb/article/19/86120 Wed, 23 Jul 2014 10:30:00 CDT Illinois News Bureau: Research Self-focus plays an important role in how consumers make decisions, says new research from business professor Ravi Mehta. http://news.illinois.edu/news/14/0722RFID_GeneRobinson.html Diana Yates, Life Sciences Editor Science http://illinois.edu/lb/article/19/86086 Tue, 22 Jul 2014 11:00:00 CDT Illinois News Bureau: Research Scientists attached radio-frequency identification (RFID) tags to hundreds of individual honey bees and tracked them for several weeks. The effort yielded two discoveries: Some foraging bees are much busier than others; and if those busy bees disappear, others will take their place. http://news.illinois.edu/news/14/0721muscle_MarniBoppart.html Diana Yates, Life Sciences Editor Science http://illinois.edu/lb/article/19/86058 Mon, 21 Jul 2014 10:00:00 CDT Illinois News Bureau: Research A new study in mice reveals that mesenchymal (mezz-EN-chem-uhl) stem cells (MSCs) help rejuvenate skeletal muscle after resistance exercise. http://news.illinois.edu/news/14/0717honey_bee_diet_GeneRobinson.html Diana Yates, Life Sciences Editor Science http://illinois.edu/lb/article/19/86001 Thu, 17 Jul 2014 16:00:00 CDT Illinois News Bureau: Research Many beekeepers feed their honey bees sucrose or high-fructose corn syrup when times are lean inside the hive. This practice has come under scrutiny, however, in response to colony collapse disorder, the massive -- and as yet not fully explained -- annual die-off of honey bees in the U.S. and Europe. Some suspect that inadequate nutrition plays a role in honey bee declines. http://news.illinois.edu/news/14/0716abuse_KathrynClancy.html Diana Yates, Life Sciences Editor Science http://illinois.edu/lb/article/19/85976 Wed, 16 Jul 2014 13:00:00 CDT Illinois News Bureau: Research A survey of 142 men and 516 women with experience in field studies in anthropology, archaeology, geology and other scientific disciplines reveals that many of them – particularly the younger ones – suffered or witnessed sexual harassment or sexual assault while at work in the field. http://news.illinois.edu/news/14/0716elephant_tuberculosis_JenniferLandolfi.html Diana Yates, Life Sciences Editor Science http://illinois.edu/lb/article/19/85961 Wed, 16 Jul 2014 10:00:00 CDT Illinois News Bureau: Research Mycobacterium tuberculosis, the organism that causes tuberculosis in humans, also afflicts Asian (and occasionally other) elephants. Diagnosing and treating elephants with TB is a challenge, however, as little is known about how their immune systems respond to the infection. A new study begins to address this knowledge gap, and offers new tools for detecting and monitoring TB in captive elephants.
