In this week’s Mizzou View, learn more about Clyde Ruffin, a city council candidate for Columbia’s First Ward. Also in this week’s episode is a science piece analyzing a new type of relationship– LAT, or Living Apart Together. It’s when a couple remains in a committed relationship but do not live with each other. Check […]
At the University of Missouri, assistant professor Jacquelyn Benson is exploring LATs or “Living Apart Together” relationships and delving into how it works, how it impacts family members and its role in the historical context of relationships.
Welcome back to the Mizzou View! In this episode, we cover on the recently implemented X-points system and how Mizzou Rec is using it. We take a quick look back at Mizzou Idol and its talented contestants. Finally, a science story about a software set to trend in the scientific community. Listen to the Mizzou […]
At the University of Missouri, something is trending. With the right tweaks and changes, it could potentially transform the research world and even beyond. Professer Steve Van Doren, a MU Biochemistry Professor, along with his research assistant Jia Xu, has developed TREND, an acronym for TRack Equilibrium or Non-equilibrium shifts in Data.
In this on-air interview of the Pulse, Anahita Zare and Matt McCune, organizers of Mid-Missouri’s March for Science protest talk about why they decided to form one here in Columbia and what events they plan. They also touch upon personally what the new Trump administration means for science and how scientists should and will react. This was aired Feb. 13.
Welcome back to the Mizzou View. Check back every Friday morning to get a good view of the campus and around Mizzou.
Canned food may not be safe. Mizzou researcher Dr. Cheryl Rosenfeld experimented with canned dog food and realized BPA concentrations increased dramatically in the body when dogs consumed them. The BPA primarily comes from the plastic linings in cans, and the results of this experiment may translate into something bigger for humans themselves.
In your guts are millions of probiotics, also known as good bacteria in layman’s terms, that live and thrive. It has been established in the scientific community that these bacteria help one’s body digest food, breaking down things that the body cannot. But at the University of Missouri, Dr. Daniel Davis, Dr. Aaron Ericcson, and Dr. Elizabeth Bryda have considered the possibility that probiotics, specifically Lactobacillus, can also help reduce mental stress. They used zebrafish to establish this theory, but the implications for humans can be huge.
Race plays a huge part in many aspects of our daily life, from policing to government to day-to-day interactions. But Dr. Antoinette Landor, a professor studying human development and family science, has discovered that race and skin tone play an important factor in — surprisingly — sex. She claims that there is a relationship where darker skin tone means a higher chance of engaging in risky sexual behavior. How is this possible? Listen to the story for more.
With the upcoming election coming next Tuesday, the race between the two candidates Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump is coming down to the line. This past election has already been a crazy one, by American standards, especially with Trump who has defied and overturned many political norms and conventions. Yet, Pierce and Titus were curious about how people from other countries viewed this US election.
