A study from the University of Arkansas shows that exercise may help prevent insulin resistance, a precursor to Type 2 diabetes. Two UA researchers, Megan Rosa-Caldwell and Nicholas Greene, worked on the study and the results were published in June in Experimental Physiology.

Each human cell contains about three meters, or nearly ten feet, of DNA. To contain all of that genetic material, our cells wrap the DNA around certain proteins in an organized fashion, and when our cells need to access that genetic material, a process called protein acetylation occurs to unpack some of that genetic material. But protein acetylation isn’t limited to DNA. One University of Arkansas researcher is studying the process, and it could result in better tasting beer and even stress-resistant crops.

A new study followed workers for a week to see how acts of incivility, like sarcasm or put-downs, could affect the likelihood of other acts of incivility occurring within the work environment. We speak with Chris Rosen, the report's author and a professor of Management in the Walton College of Business at the University of Arkansas.
