Companies can boost their bottom line by hiring a former politician, but business leaders don’t benefit their companies by getting into politics.

“We found that the value created for firms is much greater when individuals move from politics to the board or executive team rather than the other way around,” says Reza Houston, coauthor of the study and a doctoral student in the Trulaske College of Business.

The Psychology of Choking Under Pressure

Posted by: Administrator in Sports |

http://well.blogs.nytimes.com/2015/05/14/the-psychology-of-choking-under-pressure/

Choking, or failing in a pressure-filled situation, is common enough. But the underlying psychology is surprisingly mysterious for such a familiar phenomenon. So scientists at Johns Hopkins University and the California Institute of Technology decided to investigate what happens in the brain of a person who chokes. They recruited 26 men and women to practice playing a mentally taxing video game — which involved moving dots on a screen quickly — while lying down in an M.R.I. machine.

UW Researchers developing cure for celiac disease

The ticket to freedom could be coming from the University of Washington. Researchers are developing a pill that would launch an enzyme to break down gluten in the stomach.  The enzyme would break it apart into amino acids that could be absorbed with no harm done. Ingrid Swanson Pultz leads the research.  "It's an oral protein," Pultz said.  "So it's basically a protein you'll eat just like any other protein. But first we need to do those tests the FDA requires to go into people. Then our goal is to go to human clinical trials." Those human trial will likely happen within two years.  Word is spreading quickly.  "This is a molecule that really stands to make an impact on people's lives," Pultz said. "We're not the only ones developing a therapeutic. There are several going through the pipeline. Of course we think ours is the most promising, but just hold on for a few more years and hopefully there will be something out there. It really effects people's lives. So I'm very excited about this.

At any given time, your device may detect networks you can join. Some are secured, but hackers are using much more powerful software, which anyone can get for free online, to monitor those networks from their laptop in your neighborhood.

Artificial intelligence is creeping into our everyday lives through technology like check-scanning machines and GPS navigation. How far away are we from making intelligent machines that actually have minds of their own? Hari Sreenivasan reports on the ethical considerations of artificial intelligence as part of our Breakthroughs series. The field of artificial intelligence is pushing new boundaries. The plots thicken when the intelligent machines question the authority of their makers, and begin acting on their own accord.
