:: The study is the first to examine the effect of time-restricted eating -- a form of fasting that limits food consumption to select hours each day -- on weight loss in obese individuals. Between the hours of 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. the dieters could eat any type and quantity of food they desired, but for the remaining 16 hours they could only drink water or calorie-free beverages. The study followed the participants for 12 weeks. ::

:: Geologists have long thought that the central section of California's famed San Andreas Fault —from San Juan Bautista southward to Parkfield, a distance of about 80 miles—has a steady creeping movement that provides a safe release of energy. Creep on the central San Andreas during the past several decades, so the thinking goes, has reduced the chance of a big quake that ruptures the entire fault from north to south. However new research by two Arizona State University geophysicists shows that the earth movements along this central section have not been smooth and steady, as previously thought. ::

:: Deep Video Portraits — developed by Stanford, the Technical University of Munich, and the University of Bath and others — just needs a single minute-long video clip (or about 2000 photographs) to draw from to create an almost indistinguishable fake video. It wouldn't be too hard—at all, really—to get a couple of voice actors together with Deep Video Portrait technology to create a video of Donald Trump and/or Vladimir Putin arguing for the mass extermination of a race of people. ::

:: For the first time, astronomers have directly imaged the formation and expansion of a fast-moving jet of material ejected when the powerful gravity of a supermassive black hole ripped apart a star that wandered too close to the cosmic monster. ::

:: Scientists have identified the means by which water in our blood supply crosses over to the brain, where it becomes the cerebrospinal fluid that surrounds and protects one of our most precious organs. Every day, about half a litre of water is transported from our blood in this way, but while researchers knew a thin tissue in the brain called the choroid plexus was involved in this process, they didn't understand how so much cerebrospinal fluid could be produced. Now, we may finally have the answer. ::

Transitioning :: Individual transgender lives track a wider cultural history of surgery, hormones and revolutionised gender identities. Scientists might never know what triggers the incongruence between gender identity and external genitalia, but a community of activists, investigators and clinicians are working to figure out the best and most effective therapy to help with a safe transition in the most timely fashion possible. ::

Enigmatic Stone Balls from 5,000 Years Ago Continue to Baffle Archaeologists :: Some of the most enigmatic human-made objects from Europe's late Stone Age — intricately carved balls of stone, each about the size of a baseball — continue to baffle archaeologists more than 200 years after they were first discovered. Archaeologists still don't know the original purpose or meaning of the Neolithic stone balls, which are recognized as some of the finest examples of Neolithic art found anywhere in the world. ::
