The most exciting news stories from 2017

New Scientist article New scientific papers are a dime a dozen, but this year, the news is packed with news about some of the biggest news events of the year.

Here are five of the most exciting new findings.


Humans are actually more social than we thought.

Humans have a lot of social cognition.

We have evolved to form social groups and communicate with them in order to gain benefits, and to avoid threats.

For example, social animals are known to share resources, such as food and shelter, with one another.

However, social behaviour is also highly dynamic, and we are constantly adjusting to new social interactions.

For this reason, we often think of social groups as static and static groups, but they are much more complex.

A new study in Science reports that people form groups based on many different factors.

This includes how social the group is, the people in it, and the group’s overall context.

People often form new social groups based not on their own preferences but on other people’s preferences, such that the group evolves from one to another based on how it’s used.

The researchers say that the more social people are, the more likely they are to form new groups based off other people.

They call this “social capital accumulation”.

For example: A group of strangers in a bar will often form a social group based on their shared experiences and their shared interests.

People who live in a community with similar values, such a large urban city, will tend to form groups by interacting with others from that group, as opposed to those outside the group.

People in an urban area may form a new group based purely on the city itself.


We can’t see into the future, but we can make predictions about what will happen in the future.

Predictions are one of the great benefits of the internet.

We’re able to access the information about events and people around us at all times, and this enables us to plan our lives in anticipation of them.

However the researchers also found that this doesn’t mean that we can predict what will take place in the next few decades.

Predictive models can be useful for certain types of predictions, but the predictive power of these models varies depending on the information they provide.

For instance, a model for predicting whether people will adopt a specific political party in the 2020 elections could be useful if the data is correct.

However if the forecast is wrong, the model can be useless.


The brain is much more sensitive to emotional states.

Our brains have evolved as tools for dealing with emotion, but it’s not clear that this evolved to be particularly sensitive to social situations.

One study from the University of Arizona suggests that when people are anxious about a particular event, the part of the brain that handles emotions, called the amygdala, is more active than the part that deals with sensory information.

The amygdala responds to a person’s fear by releasing a large amount of a chemical called dopamine, which is released by the brain to help people regulate their stress response.

This is why it’s known as a “fight-or-flight” response.


Social media may have profound impacts on our health.

In a 2016 study, researchers at the University in Hamburg in Germany compared data from social media to other social media data.

They found that the amount of information shared on social media was linked to increased rates of coronary heart disease.

The research team says that this suggests that social media may be one of our biggest health risks, as social media has been linked to a higher risk of heart disease in people over the past 40 years.

The authors say that more than a third of the people who had data on social networks died before the age of 65.


The Internet may be as good as it gets.

New research from the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) reports that internet use may be a good thing.

The study, published in the journal Health Psychology, looked at data from 2,000 people who were surveyed over a 20-year period.

In that time, they were asked about their use of the Internet, TV and other digital media, as well as their medical history.

It found that people who used more social media were less likely to develop type 2 diabetes and were more likely to avoid having a stroke.

The same was true for the people with type 1 diabetes.

Researchers say that this is an encouraging finding.

“We believe that this will lead to more personalized medicine and personalized healthcare,” says researcher Dr. Robert W. Johnson, from the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine in Baltimore.

“The internet is changing the way we interact with each other, and that’s a huge opportunity for this technology to impact our health.”
