During recently completed excavations in northeastern Cairo, an Egyptian-German excavation team of archaeologists has found important evidence from the history of the temple city of Heliopolis. It includes the foundation of a limestone wall, which was discovered running from north to south about 55 metres west of the still-standing obelisk of Heliopolis. The wall has not yet been precisely dated. However, fragments of a shrine to King Takelot I (887'874 BC) were found built into it. This shows that the wall was built after his reign. In addition to Egyptian authorities, a team of students and researchers from Leipzig University and the University of Pisa were involved.

In order to investigate how aerosols, as possible carriers of viruses, are distributed in the room during a choir rehearsal, research teams from the University of Leipzig and the TU Bergakademie Freiberg carried out measurements during choir rehearsals in recent months. The researchers now report on their findings in the Journal of Voice. According to their findings, thanks to regular air exchange and special sensors, choir rehearsals can be conducted in such a way that the carbon dioxide concentration and thus also the aerosols in the room air remain below the critical range for infection

Researchers at Leipzig University and the University of Würzburg have now used fruit flies to demonstrate how, apart from the negative effect, the mutation of a neuronal gene can have a positive effect - namely higher IQ in humans.
