Coronavirus treatment, parentese helps baby talk, seals clap back, splicing damaged nerves, getting astronauts to Mars healthy and sane and smoke on glaciers

Treating the coronavirus: improvising now, but with real hope on the horizon; ‘Parentese’ is not just baby talk. It boosts baby’s language skills; Gunshot-loud underwater clapping could be how grey seals intimidate rivals and attract mates; New implantable nerve guide tricks severed nerves into growing together again; Pathway to Mars — Can we get astronauts to Mars sane and healthy?; Has smoke and soot from the Australian wildfires made its way to the Antarctic?

Intermittent fasting, the math of espresso, biological bricks, scurvy in modern Canada, snake venom sans snakes and chile tolerance.

Intermittent fasting — why not eating (for a bit) could work for weight loss and health; Brewing a better espresso with less coffee and more math; Bringing biology to bricks — concrete details on how to grow building materials; Avast! Scurvy is still a health issue in 21st century Canada; Fangs very much. Scientists use stem cells to make snake venom — without the snake; How come I can’t tolerate spicy foods, but my kids can?
