Health
Dec. 21 (UPI) -- Kids who eat fish at least once a week score higher on IQ tests and experience better sleep, according to new research by scientists at the University of Pennsylvania.Omega-3s, fatty acids found in fish, have previously been linked individually to boosts in intelligence and improved sleep.

Study: More evidence links earthquakes to energy waste wells

Study: More evidence links earthquakes to energy waste wells

Technology
Scientists say they have more evidence that an increase in earthquakes on the Colorado-New Mexico border since 2001 has been caused by wells that inject wastewater from oil and gas production back underground, similar to human-caused quakes in Oklahoma and other states. A paper published last week by researchers at the University of Colorado concluded that the wastewater caused a big enough increase in underground pressure to make rock formations slip along fault lines. "You find that the pressure changes at a given depth are enough to trigger earthquakes," said Jenny Nakai, the paper's lead author and a doctoral student at the university. The paper, published in the Journal of Geophysical Research: Solid Earth, is the latest to link wastewater injection wells to earthquakes. Most oil and...
