Werewolves. Witches. Vampires. Ghosts. Monsters.

They’ve rampaged, romanced, and revenged across our screens for a century and have populated our stories—both oral and written—since humans became, well, humans.

We’ve always been drawn to the supernatural and the horrific, the Other lurking in the darkness. We’ve told such tales to explain the inexplicable, to come to terms with death and violence and the natural world. And since 2015, Aaron Mahnke has made a point of untangling many of these knotted narratives in his bi-weekly podcast, Lore

A main cause for spinal disc degeneration is thought to be a change in the water content in the intervertebral disk. A research team used a novel magnetic resonance imaging technique, called apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) maps, which directly assessed the movements and dynamics of the water in the intervertebral disk and other spinal structures. The ADC maps provided precise assessments and correlations with degeneration.

Despite their relatively small genome, mycoplasmas can cause persistent and difficult-to-treat infections in humans and animals. A study has shown how mycoplasmas escape the immune response. Mycoplasmas 'mask' themselves: They use their small genome in a clever way and compensate for the loss of an enzyme that is important for this process. This could be shown for the first time in vivo, thus representing a breakthrough in the research of bacterial pathogens.

Typhoon Lan has been undergoing rapid intensification on Thursday night and Friday, and will likely reach super typhoon status by Saturday morning. Such a threshold is crossed when a typhoon has sustained winds of at least 150 miles per hour.

The storm is in a favorable environment for strengthening, and is likely on a collision course with highly populated areas of Japan.

One characteristic of this storm that's clear from satellite imagery is that it has developed a massive eye about 50 miles in diameter. To put that into perspective, if you put the center of the storm on top of Manhattan, it would encompass parts of New Jersey, the lower Hudson Valley of New York, southwestern Connecticut, and western Long Island.  Read more...
