Local water scarcity spilling over into global crisis, researchers warn -

Local water scarcity spilling over into global crisis, researchers warnPopulation growth and climate change are putting increasingly intense pressure on the planet's limited water supplies, with worsening shortages emerging from the Middle East to Asia and Latin America, researchers and bankers said on Monday. "All the local crises around the world are building up to a global crisis," Torgny Holmgren, executive director of the Stockholm International Water Institute, told a conference on the issue at London-based think-tank Chatham House. In Jordan, the third most water-scarce country, raising water prices to reflect the shortage would make economic sense - but not when nearly 1.5 million Syrian refugees, on top of 9 million citizens, depend on it, said Craig Davies of the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD).

U.S. agencies lax as China stole intellectual property: Senate report -

U.S. agencies lax as China stole intellectual property: Senate reportFederal agencies responded too slowly as Beijing recruited U.S.-based researchers to transfer intellectual property from American laboratories, leaving U.S. taxpayers unwittingly funding the rise of China's economy and military, U.S. Senate investigators said on Monday. The Senate's Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations released the 105-page report saying China started in the late 1990s to exchange salaries, research funding, laboratory space and other incentives for information from U.S. university laboratories and other research institutions, much of it publicly funded. As China spent 20 years recruiting researchers with access to advanced science and technology, U.S. agencies failed to adequately respond.

Immigrants don't flock to states that expand health benefits -

Immigrants don't flock to states that expand health benefitsFederal policy changes in 2002 and 2009 led some states to expand public health insurance coverage to some children born outside the U.S. and to certain pregnant women. The proportion of immigrants making interstate moves within the first five years of U.S. residency didn't appear to be influenced by expanded public health benefits, the study found. "Our study showed that recent public health insurance expansion was not associated with a discernable increase in migration between states among eligible immigrants," senior study author Jens Hainmueller of Stanford University in California and colleagues write in JAMA Pediatrics.
