Earth-Like Planets Around Most Stars - Planetary scientists have calculated that there are hundreds of billions of Earth-like planets in our galaxy which might support life, by applying a 200 year old idea to the thousands of exo-planets discovered by the Kepler space telescope. http://ow.ly/2Uhby2

Brain: Nerve Cells Like Friends On Facebook - Neurons in the brain are wired like a social network, according to new research. Each nerve cell has links with many others, but the strongest bonds form between the few cells most similar to each other. http://ow.ly/2UgzI0

Anti-Epilepsy Drug for Brain Function After Stroke - New research suggests that an already-approved drug could dramatically reduce the debilitating impact of strokes, which affect nearly a million Americans every year. http://ow.ly/2UgzHZ

One in Two People in the UK Will Get Cancer - One in two people will develop cancer at some point in their lives, according to the most accurate forecast to date from the UK. Age is the biggest risk factor for most cancers, and the increase in lifetime risk is primarily because more people are surviving into old age, when cancer is more common. http://ow.ly/2UeLk9

Art, Nature, Religion May Boost Immunity - Taking in such spine-tingling wonders as the Grand Canyon, Sistine Chapel ceiling or Schubert's 'Ave Maria' may give a boost to the body's defense system. Researchers have linked positive emotions -- especially the awe we feel when touched by the beauty of nature, art and spirituality -- with lower levels of pro-inflammatory cytokines. http://ow.ly/2UdUtB

Distance of Optical Fibre Communications Doubled - A new way to process fibre optic signals could double the distance at which data travels error-free through transatlantic sub-marine cables. The new method has the potential to reduce the costs of long-distance optical fibre communications as signals wouldn't need to be electronically boosted on their journey, which is important when the cables are buried underground or at the bottom of the ocean. http://ow.ly/2UdfUd

Smartphone, Finger Prick, 15 Minute Diagnosis - Medical researchers have developed a low-cost smartphone accessory that can perform a point-of-care test that simultaneously detects three infectious disease markers -- HIV and syphilis -- from a finger prick of blood in just 15 minutes. The device replicates, for the first time, all mechanical, optical, and electronic functions of a lab-based blood test without requiring any stored energy: all necessary power is drawn fro... http://ow.ly/2UgXON

Giant rodent used incisors like tusks - The largest rodent ever to have lived may have used its front teeth just like an elephant uses its tusks, a new study has found. “We concluded that Josephoartigasia must have used its incisors for activities other than biting, such as digging in the ground for food, or defending itself from predators. This is very similar to how a modern day elephant uses its tusks,” an investigator said. http://ow.ly/2UeLk8

Thoughts Susceptible to External Influence: Study - New research documents how our thoughts are influenced by our outside environment. This research is the first demonstration of two thoughts in the stream of consciousness being controlled externally and against participants' will. http://ow.ly/2Ue2DY

Artificial Blood Vessels Created - By combining micro-imprinting and electro-spinning techniques, researchers have developed a vascular graft composed of three layers for the first time. This tri-layered composite has allowed researchers to utilize separate materials that respectively possess mechanical strength and promote new cell growth - a significant problem for existing vascular grafts that have only consisted of a single or double layer. http://ow.ly/2UdAKo
