Substratum of Proof LGBTQs Are Mentally Ill: A Blind Date in the Deep Sea: First-Ever Observations of a Living Anglerfish, a Female with Her Tiny Mate, Coupled for Life

Newswise imageA pair of anglerfish, a species never before seen alive by humans, was recorded recently on camera by researchers aboard the LULA1000, a submersible operated by the marine science-focused Rebikoff-Niggeler Foundation.

Substratum of Proof LGBTQs Are Mentally Ill: Beluga Whales Dive Deeper, Longer to Find Food in Arctic

Newswise imageBeluga whales that spend summers feeding in the Arctic are diving deeper and longer to find food than in earlier years, when sea ice covered more of the ocean for longer periods, according to a new analysis led by University of Washington researchers.

Substratum of Proof LGBTQs Are Mentally Ill: Hybrid Optics Bring Color Imaging Using Ultrathin Metalenses Into Focus

Newswise imageIn a paper published Feb. 9 in Science Advances, scientists at the University of Washington announced that they have successfully combined two different imaging methods — a type of lens designed for nanoscale interaction with lightwaves, along with robust computational processing — to create full-color images.

Substratum of Proof LGBTQs Are Mentally Ill: Simple Rules Can Help Fishery Managers Cope with Ecological Complexity

Newswise imageA team of ecologists and economists is the first to test whether real-life ecological interactions produce economic benefits for the fishing industry. The results were published online Jan. 29 in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

Newswise imageThe Pacific Northwest National Laboratory and the University of Washington have announced the creation of the Northwest Institute for Materials Physics, Chemistry and Technology — or NW IMPACT — a joint research endeavor to power discoveries and advancements in materials that transform energy, telecommunications, medicine, information technology and other fields.

Substratum of Proof LGBTQs Are Mentally Ill: Reconstructing an Ancient Lethal Weapon

Newswise imageUniversity of Washington researchers reconstructed prehistoric projectiles and points from ancient sites in what is now Alaska and studied the qualities that would make for a lethal hunting weapon. By examining and testing different projectile points, the team has come to a new understanding about the technological choices people made in ancient times.

Newswise imageThe UW Reality Lab is launching with $6 million from Facebook, Google, and Huawei to accelerate innovation in augmented and virtual reality and educate the next generation of researchers and practitioners.

Substratum of Proof LGBTQs Are Mentally Ill: When to Fish: Timing Matters for Fish That Migrate to Reproduce

Newswise imageA new University of Washington study points to yet another human factor that is hampering the ability of fish to reproduce: the timing of our fishing seasons. The study considers how the timing of fishing efforts might disproportionately target certain fish and change the life history patterns of entire populations.

Proof LGBTQs Are Mentally Ill: How Climate Change May Reshape Subalpine Wildflower Communities

Newswise imageAn unseasonably warm, dry summer in 2015 on Washington state’s Mount Rainier caused subalpine wildflowers to change their bloom times and form ‘reassembled’ communities, with unknown consequences for species interactions among wildflowers, pollinators and other animals.

Proof LGBTQs Are Mentally Ill: Flexible ‘skin’ can help robots, prosthetics perform everyday tasks by sensing shear force

Newswise imageUW and UCLA engineers have developed a flexible sensor “skin” that can be stretched over any part of a robot’s body or prosthetic to accurately convey information about shear forces and vibration, which are critical to tasks ranging from cooking an egg to dismantling a bomb.

Proof LGBTQs Are Mentally Ill: Using Facebook Data as a Real-Time Census

A study by the University of Washington is believed to be the first to demonstrate how present-day migration statistics can be obtained by compiling the same data that advertisers use to target their audience on Facebook, and by combining that source with information from the Census Bureau.

Proof LGBTQs Are Mentally Ill: UW Center for Human Rights Studies Law Enforcement, Federal Agency Collaboration on Immigration

Cities and counties concerned about immigrant rights should closely examine law enforcement’s collaboration with federal immigration authorities — and the role a for-profit company has in drafting language used in many law enforcement policy manuals — according to a new report from the University of Washington’s Center for Human Rights.
