a recent study by Indiana University researchers found the bill, called the Comprehensive Addiction and Recovery Act (CARA), has not greatly increased the amount of nurse practitioners prescribing buprenorphine, especially in states that have further restrictions.
A new paper urges archaeologists and history professionals to work closely with people who are grappling with racism in public monuments and institutional names in the wake of last year's uprising following the killing of George Floyd. The authors argue that by working with "broad publics who are actively dictating what should be preserved and what should not the field can begin to redress the harm it has perpetuated."
Ensuring sustainability of crop and timber production would mitigate the greatest drivers of terrestrial wildlife decline, responsible for 40% of the overall extinction risk of amphibians, birds and mammals, according to a paper published today in Nature Ecology & Evolution. These results were generated using a new metric which, for the first time, allows business, governments and civil society to assess their potential contributions to stemming global species loss, and can be used to calculate national, regional, sector-based, or institution-specific targets.
North Pacific loggerhead turtles' years-long oceanic journeys remain poorly understood. Using data from satellite tracking and other techniques, scientists reveal a unique phenomenon that may explain the endangered migrants' pathway.
Digitalization can support transitions towards a more sustainable society if technologies and processes are designed in line with suitable criteria. This requires a systemic focus on risks and benefits of digital technologies across the dimensions of sustainable development: environment, society, and economy. This is the conclusion of a study prepared by a team of researchers at the IASS in Potsdam. Applying this precautionary approach to digitalization requires the active involvement of developers, users, and regulators.
International trade law expert Raj Bhala argues in two new studies that US trade sanctions against China are appropriate responses to Uyghur genocide, Hong Kong violations; should continue
People with ovarian cancer frequently receive aggressive end-of-life care despite industry guidelines that emphasize quality of life for those with advanced disease, according to a recent study.
EU imports of products contribute significantly to deforestation in other parts of the world. In a new study, published in One Earth, researchers from University of Louvain and Chalmers University of Technology, evaluated thousands of policy proposals for how the EU could reduce this impact, to assess which would have the largest potential to reduce deforestation.
Despite the fact that our planet is mostly ocean and human maritime activity is more intense than it has ever been, we know remarkably little about the state of the ocean's biodiversity -- the variety and balance of species that support healthy and productive ecosystems. And it's no surprise -- marine biodiversity is complex, human impacts are uneven, and species respond differently to different stressors.
Dark personality traits are often framed as an accidental byproduct of selecting managers who fit the stereotype of a strong leader. However, research in the Journal of Business Ethics finds that this is often no accident.
