A new analysis by Case Western Reserve University finds that red light cameras do little to reduce accidents at the intersections where they are installed.

Researchers examined data from Houston over a 12-year period, during which the city ended its red light camera program.

A researcher at Case Western Reserve University discovered a new treatment for spinal cord injuries that may allow nerves to regrow and perhaps restore lost movement to paralyzed people.

The breakthrough comes after a three-decade search.

It was once thought that damaged nerve cells could never regrow, but Jerry Silver, who is a distinguished professor in neuroscience, never bought into that.

MARCH FOR SCIENCE CLEVELAND

Science enthusiasts are planning a March for Science in Cleveland on Saturday.

Organizers say it’s a celebration of science and a call to support the scientific community. Case Western Reserve University biologist Patricia Princehouse is one of the organizers.

She said recent attempts by the federal government to censor, or misrepresent findings concerning climate change, endangered species, and other issues amount to an attack on science.

More than 300 homes in the city of Cleveland were declared unsafe to live in because of lead. Residents are being asked to move out quickly if they have young children. Lead poisoning in children ages 3 to 6 can have a drastic impact on their development and overall health, but it goes largely undiagnosed in the city’s kids. A group of educators are now trying to change that with a new partnership and free testing in the city’s schools.
