Princeton project expands to create a worldwide fleet of robotic floats to monitor ocean health .
The NSF is turning Princeton's successful SOCCOM project, of ocean-monitoring robotic floats in the Southern Ocean, into a global network of floating ocean monitors. A single robotic float costs the same as two days at sea on a research ship, but floats can collect data autonomously for more than five years, in all seasons, including during winter storms?when shipboard work is limited.
Princeton and Mpala scholars link obesity and disease to dramatic dietary changes .
A new study supporting the “mismatch” hypothesis found that obesity, diabetes?and cardiovascular illnesses increased among Turkana people whose diet changed from animal-based to carbohydrate-based.
Princeton study suggests that monkeys, like humans, may have 'self-domesticated' .
A team of scientists determined that changing an infant monkey's verbal development also changed a physical marker of domesticity: a patch of light fur on its forehead. This link between tameness and language development supports the theory that humans have "self domesticated."
