Pharmacist Group Survey Confirms Patient Care Affected by Shortage of Small-Volume Parenteral Solutions

The results of a survey released today by ASHP (American Society of Health-System Pharmacists) illustrate the considerable impact shortages of small-volume parenteral (SVP) solutions are having on daily operations and patient care in most hospitals across the country.

Hubble Finds Substellar Objects in the Orion Nebula

In an unprecedented deep survey for small, faint objects in the Orion Nebula, astronomers using NASA's Hubble Space Telescope have uncovered the largest known population of brown dwarfs sprinkled among newborn stars. Looking in the vicinity of the survey stars, researchers not only found several very-low-mass brown dwarf companions, but also three giant planets. They even found an example of binary planets where two planets orbit each other in the absence of a parent star.

Hubble Probes the Archeology of Our Milky Way's Ancient Hub

A new analysis of about 10,000 normal Sun-like stars in the Milky Way's bulge reveals that our galaxy’s hub is a dynamic environment of variously aged stars zipping around at different speeds. This conclusion is based on nine years’ worth of archival data from the Hubble Space Telescope.

An intensive survey deep into the universe by NASA's Hubble and Spitzer space telescopes has yielded the proverbial needle-in-a-haystack: the farthest galaxy yet seen in an image that has been stretched and amplified by a phenomenon called gravitational lensing.

Astronomers have caught a supermassive black hole in a distant galaxy snacking on gas and then "burping" — not once, but twice.

Hot Spot Policing Focused on Guns Is Most Effective Strategy For Reducing Gun Violence in Baltimore, Study Finds

A Baltimore program that assigns detectives to work in neighborhoods at high risk for gun violence was more effective at reducing gun violence in Baltimore than other initiatives, a new study by researchers at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health finds. The so-called “hot spot” program, which focuses on individuals with a history of gun violence and curtailing illegal gun possession led to significant reductions in homicides and nonfatal shootings.
