Friday Roundup: Sex, math, sugar bombs, and vocal fry

Women and men and science
  • Vocal fry: I (Emily) am a biologist. This phrase makes me think of tiny, loudmouthed fish. But it's really about a vocal tic. Do you do this when you speak? It’s all the rage among young XXers these days.
  • Decaying hoods, premature birth: living in among dilapidated buildings linked to higher risk of premature childbirth. 
  • Do you know when you want it? Yes, that It
  • Women can do math. Yep, as well as men. Or maybe we should write that as, Men can do math. Yep, as well as women.
  • Male circumcision: the controversy continues. Does it or doesn't it stem the transmission of AIDS?
Cool, cute, crazy sci stuff
