Log every request to corporate apps, no code changes required

When a user connects to a corporate network through an enterprise VPN client, this is what the VPN appliance logs: The administrator of that private network knows the user opened the door at 12:15:05, but, in most cases, has no visibility into what they did next. Once inside that private network, users can reach internal tools, sensitive data, and production environments. Preventing this requires complicated network segmentation, and often server-side application changes. Logging the steps that an individual takes inside…

Transplanting new inhibitory neurons may repair damaged brain circuits — ScienceDaily

Researchers from the University of California, Irvine developed a breakthrough cell therapy to improve memory and prevent seizures in mice following traumatic brain injury. The study, titled “Transplanted interneurons improve memory precision after traumatic brain injury,” was published today in Nature Communications. Traumatic brain injuries affect 2 million Americans each year and cause cell death and inflammation in the brain. People who experience a head injury often suffer from lifelong memory loss and can develop epilepsy. In the study, the…

Smart people may learn music faster — ScienceDaily

Intelligence could play a role, according to a Michigan State University study that investigated the early stages of learning to play piano. Published in the journal Intelligence, the study may be the first to examine the relationship between intelligence, music aptitude and growth mindset in beginner pianists. Growth mindset refers to whether students believe they can improve basic abilities, like piano ability. “The strongest predictor of skill acquisition was intelligence, followed by music aptitude,” said Alexander Burgoyne, a doctoral candidate…

When reporting climate-driven human migration, place matters — ScienceDaily

A quick Google search for “What is driving migration from Central America?” reveals that nearly all of the top hits claim climate change as a major catalyst for the mass movement of people out of their home countries. University of Arizona climate researchers, however, have shown that the reality is much more nuanced. “We were seeing articles in big-name media saying migration from Central America is being driven by climate change and yet, we were looking at these and asking,…

Students Develop Innovative, Artistic Technology in Third Annual TigerHacks Competition

Some 230 hackers contributed more than 8,000 collective hours of programming during TigerHacks, a weekend full of intense concentration, team collaboration and ingenuity. Programmers and techies camped out for 36 hours in Lafferre Hall this weekend racing to complete apps and develop new hardware at the 2019 TigerHacks hackathon. The competition challenges students from across Missouri to create innovative projects using their computer science and information technology skills. With about 230 hackers and over 8,000 collective hours of programming, TigerHacks…

New study finds warming climate could lead to profound changes in the subtropical climate — ScienceDaily

More than a billion people in Asia depend on seasonal monsoons for their water needs. The Asian monsoon is closely linked to a planetary-scale tropical air flow which, according to a new study by Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab), will most likely shift geographically as the climate continues to warm, resulting in less rainfall in certain regions. Berkeley Lab researchers Wenyu Zhou and Da Yang, along with Shang-Ping Xie of Scripps Institution of Oceanography at UC San Diego, used…

Wilson and her peers spent the weekend in Brunswick, Missouri, a…

New weapon in fight against lethal fungi — ScienceDaily

Researchers at Monash University have gained insights into how nanoparticles could be used to identify the presence of invasive and sometimes deadly microbes, and deliver targeted treatments more effectively. This study was conducted as an interdisciplinary collaboration between microbiologists, immunologists and engineers led by Dr Simon Corrie from Monash University’s Department of Chemical Engineering and Professor Ana Traven from the Monash Biomedicine Discovery Institute (BDI). It was recently published in the American Chemical Society journal ACS Applied Interfaces and Material.…
