Study of auto recalls shows carmakers delay announcements until they ‘hide in the herd’
Automotive recalls are occurring at record levels, but seem to be announced after inexplicable delays. A research study of 48 years of auto recalls announced in the United States finds carmakers frequently wait to make their announcements until after a competitor issues a recall – even if it is unrelated to similar defects.
This suggests that recall announcements may not be triggered solely by…
Depressed and out of work? Therapy may help you find a job
If depression is making it more difficult for some unemployed people to land a job, one type of therapy may help, research suggests.
In a new study, 41% of unemployed or underemployed people undergoing cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) found a new job or went from part- to full-time work by the end of the 16-week treatment for depression.
Those who had a job but found it difficult to focus on…
New type of collagen could give cosmetics ‘highest biocompatibility’ with human skin
A completely new type of collagen developed by researchers could give cosmetics the “highest biocompatibility” with human skin, possibly leading to less dryness and slower ageing.
The dream of eternal youth is as old as mankind. There actually is no remedy for the ageing process; that is proved with a simple look in the mirror. Skin ageing is the most visible sign of progressing ageing.

Robotics and Software Development: Common Future
In 2021 we celebrate the 100th anniversary of the concept of robotics.
The word “robot” was coined by the Prague playwright Karel Capek for his play about artificial humans created to help us with hard tasks. Now, 100 years later, we use robotics in our everyday life, although not exactly as Capek imagined.
Automated systems penetrated different domains of human life. Yet, we are far from the…
