It’s described as the next wave of terrorism. Cyber attacks are becoming a growing threat to national security. Hackers are getting stronger and more advanced. To get one step ahead of those threatening national security, the U.S. Department of Defense has given researchers at the University of Utah the task of finding ways to fight cyber attacks. “We are trying to make sure that these attacks are impossible in the first place. We want to make it so there’s no way in to steal email at all,” said Matt Might, associate professor of Computer Science at the U and co-leader of the team. With a $3 million grant from the U.S. Department of Defense, the team of computer scientists are going to work to develop software to catch future forms of security vulnerability.

Does peer review pick the best science?

Posted by: Administrator in Science & Technology |

http://www.futurity.org/peer-review-science-funding-906992/

The concept of peer review is central to National Institutes of Health (NIH) funding and to science itself—journals choose articles for publication based on fellow scientists’ scrutiny. The idea is to weed out weak research and ensure that only the strongest science goes forward. But does it work?

The NIH is the major funder of biomedical research in the United States, distributing some $30 billion to scientists each year. To decide who gets money, the NIH subjects grant proposals to a rigorous system of peer review: each proposal goes to a committee of scientists familiar with the area of research. The committee, called a study section, reviews the proposal and gives it a score. The NIH funds proposals in order of their score until the budget for that year runs out.

Although teenagers might think they know it all, turns out practice goes a long way. The study also recognized that teens are waiting longer to get behind the wheel. It's for a number of reasons it's more costly now because of the new requirements and because they don't have to take a driver's ed class once they turn 18.
