Those who are wealthier are more likely to say they earned their success, past surveys show. A new study (n=996) suggests winners are more likely than losers to credit their success to skill rather than luck, even when the odds are blatantly rigged in their favour, and little skill is involved.

Scientists extract from archived tissue a nearly complete DNA sequence of an HIV virus, providing us with a tentative time range of when the virus was transmitted from monkeys to humans; scientists postulate that it was in the 1890s-1900s.

In the coming decades, climate change will lead to a significant increase in the frequency and severity of dangerous extreme heat across the contiguous United States. The number of days where the heat index exceeds 105 degrees is estimated to increase more than four-fold to 24 by mid-century
