New “Buck” Naked Barley: Food, Feed, Brew

IMG_0684.JPG

Researchers are giving an ancient grain a new life: "Buck" barley is naked, but not in an indecent way. Naked barley does not require pearling, allowing it to hold onto the bran and whole grain status.

STUDY: High Tolerance for Wildlife Exists Around Indian Reserves Despite Continued Losses

Indian_Jackal_Rajasthan.jpg

A new study from WCS (Wildlife Conservation Society), Duke University, and the Centre for Wildlife Studies in India finds that communities living near wildlife reserves in Rajasthan, India, show a high tolerance for wildlife. This is despite them having experienced losses in crops and livestock as a result of interaction with wildlife like nilgai, jackal and wild pig, as well as larger carnivores such as leopard and wolves. Understanding these attitudes towards wildlife is critical to informing park management policies and practices.

Researchers Devise Decoy Molecule to Block Pain Where It Starts

Dr. Zachary Campbell, who researches pain on the molecular level at the University of Texas at Dallas, recently published a study that describes a new method of reducing pain-associated behaviors with RNA-based medicine, creating a new class of decoy molecules that prevent the onset of pain.

Penn State Aerospace Engineer Receives AFOSR Funding to Investigate Overtrust with Autonomous Vehicles

Overtrust frequently occurs with autonomous vehicles and robots—and it can have serious physical, and even fatal, consequences for humans in both the military and society, but Alan Wagner, assistant professor of aerospace engineering at Penn State, is investigating the factors that cause overtrust, and developing techniques that will allow autonomous systems to recognize it and prevent it, thanks to funding from the Air Force Office of Scientific Research.
