#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 ...

John T. Clarke, director of BU’s Center for #Space #Physics, was part of the team that proposed #MAVEN, a #NASA satellite currently circling #Mars. 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
By Barbara Moran. At this moment, a NASA satellite called MAVEN is circling Mars, and it's covered with Boston University fingerprints. (Not literally, of course. That would be tacky.) MAVEN stands for Mars Atmosphere and Volatile EvolutioN mission, and it's the first satellite dedicated to ...

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.

Andrea DiGiorgio, a PhD candidate in biological anthropology, will spend a year in Borneo studying what orangutans eat. Collecting orangutan food is not easy. Not only will DiGiorgio need to run through the jungle and catch falling fruit, she will also have to climb 100-foot-tall trees.
By Barbara Moran. Andrea DiGiorgio—former corporate saleswoman, current Boston University PhD candidate—is going to spend 2015 chasing orangutans through the jungles of Borneo, gathering samples of their food.

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
