Political polarization? Don't blame the web, study says
Despite the popular narrative that the web is to blame for rising political polarization, a study by a Brown University economist has found that recent growth in polarization is greatest for demographic groups in which individuals are least likely to use the internet and social media. This means that data does not support the claim that the internet is the most significant driver of partisanship.
Homework is age-inappropriate, say parents
Teachers assign projects to pre-primary and primary students so that parents and children bond and spend more time together. A study conducted by researchers at Brown University has revealed that children's homework can be a cause of stress and tension among parents. Most parents are unable to help their children with their homework, while children themselves dislike completing homework, projects, and assignments.
Scientists map lunar water with data from Chandrayaan-1
Scientists, using data from an instrument which flew aboard India's Chandrayaan-1 spacecraft, have created the first map of water trapped in the uppermost layer of the moon's soil. Scientists from Brown University in the US used a new calibration of data taken from NASA's Moon Mineralogy Mapper, which flew aboard Chandrayaan-1 spacecraft in 2008, to quantify how much water is present on a global scale. The water concentration reaches a maximum average of around 500 to 750 parts per million in the higher latitudes.

Chandrayaan-1 Helps Scientists Map Water On Moon
Using newly calibrated data taken from NASA's Moon Mineralogy Mapper, which flew aboard India's Chandrayaan-1 spacecraft, scientists have created the first global map of water in the Moon's soil. The water concentration reaches a maximum average of around 500 to 750 parts per million in the higher latitudes. This is a road map to where water exists on the surface of the Moon, study co-author Ralph Milliken, Associate Professor at Brown University, said.

Miss North Dakota Cara Mund Is Crowned State's First-Ever Miss America
For the first time in the competition's history, Miss North Dakota was crowned Miss America 2018. Brown University graduate Cara Mund, who has been accepted into Notre Dame Law School, made history Sunday night when she became the first-ever Miss North Dakota to win the Miss America pageant. Only three previous Miss North Dakota competitors had reached the top 10. In a video posted to Twitter after the competition, Mund said she was honored to win the crown.
