Gestational diabetes mellitus linked to early particle exposure with high BMI

The incidence of gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) is rapidly increasing worldwide and affects up to one in six pregnant women. A new Primary Care Diabetes A review study relates this to a high body mass index (BMI) before the onset of pregnancy, associated with exposure to different levels of particles (PM) of a certain size. …

Scientists thought carbon emissions had peaked.  They have never been so high.

Scientists thought carbon emissions had peaked. They have never been so high.

Comment this story Comment Towards the end of 2020, as the covid-19 pandemic continued to rage, a few climatologists and energy experts made a prediction. They estimated that emissions from fossil fuels – which had just plummeted thanks to the global pandemic – may never again reach the highs of 2019. Perhaps, they speculated, after …

Evidence for Higgs boson contributions to the production of Z boson pairs at high energies

Left: Two-parameter probability sweep of off-shell production signal intensity parameters gg and EW, 𝜇off-shellF and 𝜇off-shellV, respectively. Dotted and dashed contours enclose the 68% (−2Δln𝐿=2.30) and 95% (−2Δln𝐿=5.99) CL regions. The cross marks the minimum and the blue diamond marks the SM hold. The integrated luminosity only reaches 138 fb-1 because 4ℓ on-hull events are …
