How The F*ck Do You Find A Therapist? Betches

Seeking out a therapist to help with any number of mental health issues is something every functioning adult should know how to do. But, unfortunately, a lot of us don’t even know where to start when it comes to checking in with a feelings doctor, where to find one, or how and when to make an appointment. And it makes sense. Once you get over the stigma (that shouldn’t exist) of seeing a mental health professional, finding one isn’t exactly easy. And if you’re already feeling intimidated about going to a psychiatrist, psychologist, counselor, etc., the daunting process of finding the right one for you could turn you off completely. So that’s why I wanted to break the process of …

Scientists Turn Type A Blood Into Universal Donor Blood

Around 117 million pints of blood are donated each year across the world. While that sounds like lake-loads of blood, incompatibility between blood types – the main ones being A, B, AB, and O – means that a transfusion isn’t always straightforward. Type O, however, is compatible with anyone who has Rhesus (Rh) positive blood, so is deemed a “universal” blood type as it can be freely accepted by anyone with A+, B+, AB+, or O+, which is three-quarters of the world’s population. Now, a new study has shown how enzymes can be used to covert A type red blood cells to “universal” donor O type blood cells. While the science is still in its early days, it has the potential to pave the …

Two Decades Of Data On GM Corn In Iberia Shows The Environmental And Economic Benefits

A new study has revealed the environmental and economic benefits of using insect-resistant genetically modified (GM) corn in Spain and Portugal, the two largest countries in the Iberian Peninsula. Author Graham Brookes used 21 years’ worth of data to assess the impact of this GM food. The findings are now published in the journal GM Crops & Food. The GM crop is resistant to two particular bugs, the European corn borer and the Mediterranean stem borer, two moths whose larvae feed on the whorl and stem of the corn respectively. The Mediterranean stem borer is one of the most damaging pests for corn, which is why some farmers have begun to use corn that is resistant to these insects.  In 2018, 121,000 …

An Increase In UV Light May Have Contributed To The Extinction Of The Neanderthals, Study Suggests

Homo neanderthalensis is an extinct species of archaic humans that lived in Eurasia until roughly 40,000 years ago. The cause of their extinction is an ongoing matter of debate. Now a new study has suggested that the weakening of Earth’s magnetic field may have been what pushed them over the edge. The magnetic field of our planet protects us directly from the solar wind, high-energy particles that flow outward from the Sun, and indirectly from the Sun’s ultraviolet light (UV). The ozone layer, our shield against the UV, is susceptible to high-energy particles (among other things) so a period of lower magnetic field strength could lead to a thinning of the ozone layer, allowing more UV to reach the surface. As …

In between all the over-filtered beach thirst traps, there’s a lot of genuinely good content on Instagram.
