More than 8 million babies were born from #IVF. Now, parents can screen for a variety of diseases--including cancers, diabetes, heart disease and schizophrenia. But does it work? @HebrewU's @ShaiCarmi put the new technique to the test. More at bit.ly/3Dx0QeJ

Does the First Day of #school affect #stock markets? @HebrewU's Zvi Wiener found that stock market volumes tumble 12%. It's actually a sign of growth and fair hiring practices: as moms increasingly enter the labor force, their absence is felt. bit.ly/3sZCC8T

Lead's in our solar panels & cellphone batteries. The more we produce, the more we absorb. Looking at 12k yr old bones, @HebrewU's Yigal Erel & @lirancarmel found the amount of lead in our bones=the amount of lead produced during our lifetime. Scary. bit.ly/37TQibG

Do you smoke? When did you start? Despite bans on marketing cigarettes to kids, Big Tobacco is one step ahead. As @HebrewU's @yaelbarzeev discovered, e-cigarettes are often sold in shops near schools, next to the toys and the candy bars. More at bit.ly/3xETfby.

Fossils found in Israel are the ‘last survivors’ of a ‘missing’ type of extinct humans. Archaeologists at @telavivuni1 & @HebrewU's @YZaidner say ‘Nesher Ramla Homo’ may have lived alongside Homo sapiens, sharing tools and technology. A good omen for the region.@ScienceMagazine
