Manga comics may help promote fruit consumption among youth
A recent pilot study in Brooklyn, N.Y., with minority students found that exposure to manga comics (Japanese comic art) promoting fruit intake significantly improved healthy snack selection. As snacking accounts for up to 27 percent of children's daily caloric intake, and childhood obesity has been linked to inadequate intake of fruits and vegetables, the results of this study could have wide-reaching implications.

The chemistry of love: Valentine's Day science from ACS Reactions
Love has inspired timeless songs and sonnets -- as well as a few less-than-timeless romantic comedies. Now the chemistry of love is the subject of the latest episode of the American Chemical Society's Reactions YouTube series (formerly Bytesize Science). Just in time for Valentine's Day, the video is available at http://youtu.be/bp7Ydv5wAPk.

Sucker-footed fossils broaden the bat map
Today, Madagascar sucker-footed bats live nowhere outside their island home, but new research shows that hasn't always been the case. The discovery of the jawbones of two extinct relatives in northern Egypt suggests the unusual creatures, which evolved sticky footpads to roost on slick surfaces, are primitive members of a group of bats that evolved in Africa and ultimately went on to flourish in South America.

The moth versus the crowd -- Tracking an alien invader of conker trees using people power
An army of citizen scientists has helped the professionals understand how a tiny "alien" moth is attacking the UK's conker (horse chestnut) trees, and showed that naturally-occurring pest controlling wasps are not able to restrict the moth's impact. The study's conclusions are published this week in the open-access scientific journal PLOS ONE.
