#Cowardice: In the first scholarly book on the topic, BU professor Chris Walsh argues that the fear of being cowardly has led to wars and all sorts of violence and says "the world would be a better place if some people worried less about being cowardly:" http://ow.ly/Hjqbf
What is a coward? Many Americans called the 9/11 hijackers and the Boston Marathon bombers cowards, with no clearer proof than the photo accompanying this story of a labor union's sign after the Boston attack. Chris Walsh, an assistant professor at Boston University's College of Arts & Sciences ...

Imagine being able to adjust the lights, change the thermostat, or operate a DVD player simply by smiling. For people who are visually or verbally impaired, or who have limited motor skills, this could be a major advance in #communication. Carolyn Michener (SAR’16) is working to make it a reality: http://ow.ly/FmBhm

Clarke is now a scientific co-investigator on the mission studying the red planet's upper atmosphere to understand Mars' past climate change - insights that could directly impact our future on Earth. http://ow.ly/GceMx

The average American eats seven times the recommended amount of salt daily. But the extra salt in our diets doesn’t affect everyone equally. Only an estimated half of adults are salt-sensitive: if they eat too much salt, their blood pressure goes up. For the other half, salt has little or no effect on blood pressure. How do we figure out why? BU researchers investigate: http://ow.ly/G0tfC #hypertension #health
By Barbara Moran. Let's face it: salt is delicious. Sprinkle it on tomatoes and they pop with flavor; shake it over popcorn and it's movie time. Even Nelson Mandela noted its worth in his inaugural address: “Let there be work, bread, water, and salt for all,” he said.

By Rich Barlow. Gabbi had her spine bones outside her skin. I saw purple veins on skin around the bones. Jess said that if Gabbi developed a cough, she could die. I was sick with agony. Jess was cleaning in between each of Gabbi's vertebrae, and Gabbi was acting happy.
