Europe's Family Tree Gets A New Branch| For those who eagerly trace their genetic lineage or subscribe online to find their earliest ancestors, there's a new group to consider adding to the furthest reaches of your list. A previously unrecognized population of ancient north Eurasians may be a major third braid in the genetic twist that gave rise to most modern Europeans and their kin. #DNA

SNOOZERS ARE, IN FACT, LOSERS POSTED BY MARIA KONNIKOVA - The science of sleep and the trouble with snooze buttons
The Trouble with Snooze Buttons (and with Modern Sleep) by Maria Konnikova, The New Yorker. 10 December 2013.
On a typical workday morning, if you’re like most people, you don’t wake up naturally. Instead, the ring of an alarm clock probably jerks you out of sleep. Depending on when you went to bed, what day of the week it is, and how deeply you were sleeping, you may not understand where you are, or why there’s an infernal chiming sound. Then you throw out your arm and hit the snooze button, silencing the noise for at least a few moments. Just another couple of minutes, you think. Then maybe a few ...
snooze button, read later
This extract (1/2) of article show us that snoozing in unhealthy. Infact when we snooze, we think we have more time to sleep, however we are throwing our brain back to the beginning of our sleep cycle which makes the "wake-up process" harder and more difficult. That causes then : bad mood, lack of attention, less ability to perform ...

The amateur geneticist who surprised science. Kim Goodsell is unlucky enough to have two very rare diseases. Her doctors blamed coincidence, but was it? She taught herself genetics to find out, and as she tells Ed Yong, no-one expected what she would discover.

MED12: Genetic cause of common breast tumors (fibroadenomas) found
Genetic cause of common breast tumors found Date: July 20, 2014 Source: SingHealth Summary: A major breakthrough in understanding the moleculular basis of fibroadenoma, one of the most common breast tumors diagnosed in women, has been made by a multidisciplinary team of scientists. The team used advanced DNA sequencing technologies to identify a critical gene called MED12 that was repeatedly disrupted in nearly 60 percent of fibroadenoma cases.

Opposites Attract? Do opposites really attract? A recent report from University of Colorado, Boulder shows that people are more likely to settle down with those who have similar genetics, not opposite. They looked at data from 15,000 couples ourselves. Here is what they found. http://blog.23andme.com/23andme-research/23andme-couples-correlated/?utm_source=23andme&utm_medium=email&utm_content=23c_Email_Platform&utm_campaign=newsletter1&cvosrc=email.newsletter1
23andMe Couples Correlated
For Valentine’s Day, we analyzed data from 15,298 real-world couples who had children together and found that people paired with others who were more like themselves than they were different. Opposites, it turns out, may not attract after all.
