    Massive monumental cemetery built by Eastern Africa’s earliest herders discovered in Kenya

    An international team has found the earliest and largest monumental cemetery in eastern Africa. The Lothagam North Pillar Site was built 5,000 years ago by early pastoralists living around Lake Turkana, Kenya. This group is believed to have had an egalitarian society, without a stratified social hierarchy. Thus their construction of such a large public project contradicts long-standing narratives that a stratified social structure is necessary to enable the construction of large public monuments. …read more

    Getting policy right—why fisheries management is plagued by the panacea mindset

    Fisheries management has often been characterized by regulatory policies that result in panaceas—broad based policy solutions that are expected to address several problems, which result in unintended consequences. An international research team shows how one size fits all policies like individual transferable quotas may be doomed from the onset, as these policies perpetuate “the panacea mindset.” The team calls for a more customized policy approach in a new piece in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. …read more

    Michigan meteor could help researchers understand near-Earth object threats

    The bright flashes that lit up the evening skies near Detroit, Michigan earlier this year were not the only signs of the meteor that disintegrated in the atmosphere on 17 January 2018. The meteor explosion was also captured by infrasonic microphones and seismometers, offering a rare chance to compare these data with satellite and ground camera images. …read more

    Biosensor allows real-time oxygen monitoring for ‘organs-on-a-chip’

    A new biosensor allows researchers to track oxygen levels in real time in “organ-on-a-chip” systems, making it possible to ensure that such systems more closely mimic the function of real organs. This is essential if organs-on-a-chip hope to achieve their potential in applications such as drug and toxicity testing. …read more
