      * New wide image of universe called 
      A panoramic image is the most detailed picture taken
      of a region large enough to be representative of the
      distant universe, astronomers say.


      * Feeding babies on demand may improve IQ:
      Infants fed whenever they want may later perform
      better in school than those who were fed on a
      schedule, new research suggests.


      * Newer generations increasingly selfish,
      study finds:

      Money, appearances and fame are indeed the idols of
      our time, new research suggests.


      * Additional evidence of elusive "God particle":
      The findings on the long-sought Higgs boson are
      still not definitive, physicists caution.



      * Did the Moon help doom the Titanic?:
      An exceedingly rare astronomical event stacked the
      deck against the ill-fated ship, astronomers propose.


      * Trophy for toughest bite may go to T. rex:
      The terrifying dinosaur Tyrannosaurus rex may have
      had an even stronger bite than previously realized,
      scientists say.


      * A simpler name may help you get ahead:
      Having a simple, easy-to-pronounce name may help
      win you friends and favor in the workplace, new
      research suggests.


      * In night sky, a delayed replay of cataclysm 
      seen in 1830s:
      When if first happened, cameras were barely
      invented. Astronomers are now better prepared.


      * Liars may be identifiable through their 
      writing, too:

      Online dating might just get a bit easier if
      participants learn a few sleuthing tricks, new
      research suggests.


      * Fasting found to help beat cancer in mice:
      Nutrient deprivation may turn cancer cells'
      relentless drive to reproduce into their own
      Achilles heel, scientists suggest.


      * Scientists reconstruct sound from dinosaur age:
      A clean, high-pitched "ping" or chirp seems to
      pierce the air when you replay a reconstruction by
      scientists of an extinct cricket's song.
