          Author: 
          Tyler Irving

          On Earth Day, consider the dilemma of the urban cyclist: on one hand, cycling is good for your health and the environment; on the other, cyclists are more exposed to risks such as accidents and air pollution.

          But new research from the University of Toronto is helping cyclists map cleaner routes to help minimize this exposure.

          There’s a lot going on under the surface of Elizabeth Edwards’s work.

          Using an army of ancient bacteria with a serious case of the munchies, this bioremediation pioneer and her team are neutralizing toxic chemicals left behind in soil and well water by decades of dry cleaning and computer manufacturing.

          Dan Randles: “We don’t fully understand how acetaminophen affects the brain”
          Author: 
          Don Campbell

          It’s been known for more than a century that acetaminophen is an effective painkiller, but a new University of Toronto study shows it could also be impeding error-detection  in the brain.

          The research, authored by a team including postdoctoral fellow Dan Randles and researchers from the University of British Columbia, is the first neurological study to look at how acetaminophen could be inhibiting the brain response associated with making errors.

          More than twice as many kids are driven to school these days compared to 25 years ago, the University of Toronto's Ron Buliung says – and that's having an impact on everyone.

          “We have a multi-billion dollar congestion problem in the region,” says Buliung, a professor of geography at the University of Toronto Mississauga. 

          “We’re dealing with the hangover from the auto century.”

          Not-for-profit organizations throughout North America that were awed by the viral success of the ALS Society’s ice bucket fundraising challenge should think twice before using social media as a significant fundraising tool, says the University of Toronto's Nicola Lacetera

          A campaign may attract attention worldwide without prompting a big spike in fundraising or any significant action to further the cause, his latest research shows.

          Serena Zhang remembers how she felt the first time she flew into Toronto: excited to be starting an undergraduate program at U of T, but confused and lost at Pearson International Airport. It would take her a half hour to find a currency exchange before she could get a taxi.

          “I just kept wandering,” Zhang says. “Since I was really shy and not confident in my English at that time, I was really scared to ask for help.”
