Pregnant Women Can Do These 2 Things to Lower Odds of a C-Section
Women may have another reason to eat healthy and exercise during pregnancy: These behaviors may lower their odds of having a cesarean section, a new meta-analysis finds. Gaining some weight during pregnancy is healthy and indeed expected, but gaining too much weight can have negative effects on both mom and baby. For example, gaining too much weight during pregnancy can increase the likelihood that a baby will have a high birth weight, which, in turn, can increase the baby's risk of medical issues, such as obesity and high blood pressure, during childhood.

Jeff Bezos Says He’s Using Amazon ‘Lottery Winnings’ to Put Humans in Space
Jeff Bezos became one of the richest people in the world thanks to an online book retailer he founded and ran, at first, out of his garage in Seattle. A spike in Amazon’s stock last month after the company purchased Whole Foods pushed him within $5 billion of the top spot on the wealth list, now held by Bill Gates. "I have won this lottery," Bezos said at a gala held on Saturday at the Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral in Florida.

Yes, Dads Give Kids Less-Healthy Food: Here's Why
Now, a small new study shows that dads really do make less-healthy choices when feeding the family — and this can take a toll on moms. Study author Priya Fielding-Singh, a doctoral candidate in sociology at Stanford University in California, said she was not surprised that the fathers in the study did less housework, including both "food work" and childcare, than mothers — indeed, national data has previously shown this unequal division of labor is common. "Many dads are less invested in some of the healthy-eating priorities that moms really hold dear," and that can lead to more work, and more stress, for moms, Fielding-Singh told Live Science.

Accepting your darkest emotions is the key to psychological health
Rumi, the 13th-century Sufi poet, famously compared emotions—”a joy, a depression, a meanness”—to “unexpected visitors.” His advice was to let them in laughing, but that’s not what we do. Instead, we pretend not to notice, or even hide. We want to bury resentment and anger, or trade loneliness in for the more fashionable gratitude. In…

Adam Savage explains why space suits are his happy place
When I interviewed him in March, he spoke about how safety equipment appealed to him, whether it was firefighter gear, the protective armor that bomb disposal personnels wear, or space suits of the fictional variety. For the last several years, Savage would attend San Diego Comic-Con dressed up in a costume that hides his identity, something he calls Adam Incognito. This year, one of the costumes he suited up in was one used in the production of Alien: Covenant.

How cows are helping researchers fight HIV
'An alignment of the stars' Researchers have long been looking for ways to help HIV-infected individuals produce more broadly neutralizing antibodies (Bnabs) — antibodies which are known to combat multiple forms of virus. A new study has found that cows may provide answers for scientists who have been seeking to better understand how Bnabs can be harnessed. In terms of their makeup, broadly neutralizing antibodies are notable because they’re big and kind of unruly as far as proteins go.

A satellite captured a video of its fellow satellites rocketing to space
A shoebox-sized satellite caught a glimpse of a Soyuz rocket launch that sent 73 satellites flying into space last week. Snapping one photo every second, the tiny Dove satellite caught two and a half minutes of the Soyuz rocket’s flight — starting with liftoff. San Francisco-based satellite company Planet learned only five hours before the launch that its Dove satellite could be in the right place at the right time to catch the rocket’s flight on camera.
