It has been almost a year since I managed to get up on the stage at the 21st EU Contest for Young Scientists in Paris, to be presented with the EIROforum CERN Prize. I still can't believe how I got there from a six week Nuffield Bursary project at the University of Sheffield, via the inaugural Big Bang Fair, and even less how I ended up getting a week-long all-expenses paid trip to the largest particle physics laboratory in the world this summer.

Scientists now say they have reason to believe that the first humans who caught malaria were infected by gorrillas. Before now, many thought that the virus came from the chimapanzee, and passed into humans when they shared a common ancestor.
Malaria is caused by parasites carried by mosquitoes, and causes 800,000 deaths a year in Africa. These latest discoveries are groundbreaking, and show that the human malaria virus is much newer to humans than was previously thought.

Unfortunately we have been experiencing a lot of spam recently on the comments section, while we have been deleting the spam and blocking the accounts of the spammers it does not seem to have deterred them.
Therefore we have removed the ability to post clickable links in the comments for normal users, you will still be able to type in full urls e.g. www.ysjournal.com but they will not automatically become clickable links. It is hoped this will make the comments an unattractive way to post spam.
Apologies for the inconvenience
