Woah! 
Strokes are the fifth highest cause of death in the U.S., killing almost 130,000 Americans every year. More than 795,000 Americans suffer a stroke every year. For over half of those Americans, it's their first. 87% of all strokes are ischemic, which means that blood flow to the brain is blocked, causing the cells to die and the brain tissue to become irrevocably damaged.

Where's the cuttlefish? 
\tCuttlefish change the patterns on their body for courtship rituals, when they eat a snack, and most famously when they want to blend in. How they change their skin patterns may tell us something about how they see the world, says Duke biologist Sarah Zylinski. Her work suggests that when cuttlefish see incomplete shapes, they fill in the visual blanks -- much like humans do. Can't get enough saltwater camouflage? Watch: "Where's The Octopus?"

Nature walks for better mental health. Go outside!


New research suggests a 90-minute nature walk can lead to less rumination -- a risk factor for depression.

How would things be in your neck of the woods?? 
The subject of climate change is a hotly contested one (excuse the pun), and despite irrefutable evidence that our ice caps are melting and our sea levels are rising faster every year, many still aren’t convinced that human pollution is directly affecting our atmosphere.  If all ice on the planet were to melt completely, sea levels will rise by 216 feet; submerging some major cities and reshaping whole continents dramatically. So what would the e...
