China’s population increased by 480,000 people last year, to more than 1.41 billion.Credit: Robert Haasmann/ImageBROKER/Alamy When will China’s population, the world’s largest, peak? It’s a point that demographers say is fast approaching. The country’s health department announced this month that the population will peak and then begin to shrink in the next three years. Others

Illustration: Kim Salt Sad times are inevitable, and most people eventually rally. But clinical depression is different, and more brutal. All sense of well-being evaporates; life can seem not worth the trouble. According to one estimate, more than 60% of people worldwide who have attempted suicide have a depressive disorder (S. Borentain et al. BMC

Optoelectronic materials turn light into electricity; some can also turn electricity into light. My research deals with examples of these materials which have great potential for use in advanced technologies. My team uses high-performing unconventional optoelectronic materials — such as halide perovskites or organic semiconductors — to create solar cells that more efficiently generate energy

A recent study looks at how various mammals respond to climate change. Bison and bears are examples of long-lived, low-reproduction animals that are more resilient than small, short-lived animals like lemmings and mice. As the average global temperature rise, extreme weather events like prolonged droughts and torrential downpours are becoming more frequent, which will only

Fruit is consumed by hundreds of animals, including humans, fruit bats, maned wolves, and toucans. However, most fruit-bearing plants only appeared relatively recently in Earth’s history, during the Cretaceous period, when the dinosaurs were already extinct.

South America was long believed to had been populated by ancient humans who arrived in North America and expanded through southward migration across the continent. The long-lasting theory concerning the migrations was based on discovery that a land bridge once existed between Siberia and Alaska. The ancient icy bridge allowed them to populate areas of

A severe drought resulted in dried rivers throughout Europe, exposing hunger stones that were carved several centuries ago to warn future generations of difficult times to come. The “hunger stones,” which have been around for centuries, resurfaced last week, according to locals, due to the dried rivers in Europe as a result of the drought.

The genomics world has no shortage of visualization tools. But as new methods and data types emerge, existing techniques can struggle to cope. Now, a tool known as Gosling allows bioinformaticians to build apps that can display genomic information with the same level of flexibility that developers have come to expect from other graphics programming

A bee just entered the mouth of Ontario Prime Minister Doug Ford during a live press conference in Dundalk, Ontario, on Friday, August 12. It immediately reached the headlines after a “serious news conference” on the province’s healthcare system turned into humorous event. The Ontario Prime Minister even joked about the incident, which could turn

A recent study found a connection between liver cancer in humans and perfluorooctanesulfonic acid, also known as PFOS, which is one of the common “forever chemicals” and is present in a water-repellant product. After concerns about its environmental effects and toxicity, PFOS-once a key component in the water-repelling product known as Scotchguard-was finally phased out
