GENEVA, Switzerland (PNN) - July 7, 2017 - The Large Hadron Collider has once again done what it does best - smash bits of matter together and find new particles in the carnage.

Superbug apocalypse rapidly approaching.

WASHINGTON (PNN) - June 1, 2017 - Nearly one-quarter of adults prescribed antibiotics as a first line treatment for community-acquired pneumonia were non-responsive to the medications, a new study has revealed. Current guidelines for community-acquired pneumonia, published by the American Thoracic Society and the Infectious Disease Society of America in 2007, offer insight on the disease. However, researchers noted that large-scale, real-world data were needed to gain greater knowledge of antibiotic choices and to better evaluate risk factors that may stem from treatment failure.

FPSA scientists have developed a memory wipe enzyme that can erase memories forever

ARLINGTON, Virginia (PNN) - June 5, 2017 - Are there any bad memories in your life that you wish you could simply erase? Researchers might have found a way to do exactly that thanks to the discovery of the enzyme in the brain that plays a pivotal role in storing long-term memories. They believe that this enzyme could be targeted in order to essentially wipe distressing memories out of the minds of people suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). However, like many things that sound too good to be true, this development is raising red flags.

MONTREAL, Canada (PNN) - June 1, 2017 - Imagine a world where anyone could create a photo-realistic fake video in which whoever they choose can be made to say whatever they want. Add to that the ability to write a script and have a machine recite it back with the perfectly indistinguishable intonation of the person featured. We are officially moving closer to that world.
