The melting of inland ice in Antarctica has sped over five years– adding massive amounts of water to the rise of sea levels, according to new research. The Southern Antarctic Peninsula’s glaciers became destabilized in 2009– and the melting of ice shelves has accelerated ever since.
A man bid $350,000 on a permit to kill an endangered black rhino in the African nation of Namibia last year. This week, Corey Knowlton, a 36-year-old Texan, bagged his rhino– and it was in the name of conservation.
Welcome to Laboratory Equipment's new Friday series, In Case You Missed It (ICYMI), where we bring you three trending news stories from the week. A deadly dog flu, concerns about scientific publishing and a highway just for butterflies are up for review today.
Despite a billion years of evolution separating humans from the baker’s yeast in their refrigerators, hundreds of genes from an ancestor that the two species have in common live on nearly unchanged in them both. Biologists have created thriving strains of genetically engineered yeast using human genes and found that certain groups of genes are surprisingly stable over evolutionary time.
Dogs' special relationship to humans may go back 27,000 to 40,000 years, according to genomic analysis of an ancient Taimyr wolf bone. Earlier genome-based estimates have suggested that the ancestors of modern-day dogs diverged from wolves no more than 16,000 years ago, after the last Ice Age.
Researchers have developed heat-triggered self-destructing electronic devices, a step toward greatly reducing electronic waste and boosting sustainability in device manufacturing. They also developed a radio-controlled trigger that could remotely activate self-destruction on demand.
Although eating high-protein, afternoon snacks can aid appetite control in adults, little information exists to guide parents on what types of snacks might benefit their adolescent children. Now, researchers have found that afternoon snacking, particularly on high-protein soy foods, reduces afternoon appetite, delays subsequent eating and reduces unhealthy evening snacking in teenagers.
Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, born May 22, 1859, was the Scottish writer behind Sherlock Holmes. He was also a doctor who received his medical degree from the University of Edinburgh.
Some major trucking companies are turning to natural gas to fuel their fleets— and to earn "green" credit among customers. But celebrating lower emissions could be premature.
Scientists operating the world's biggest particle collider say they have set a new energy record ahead of the massive machine's full restart in June. CERN says it succeeded late Wednesday in smashing together protons at 13 trillion electronvolts.
A new study has found that the toxin in a widely used genetically modified (GM) crop is having little impact on the crop pest called corn earworm– which is consistent with predictions made almost 20 years ago that had been largely ignored. The study may be a signal to pay closer attention to warning signs about the development of resistance in agricultural pests to GM crops.
New research shows that infections can impair your cognitive ability measured on an IQ scale. The study is the largest of its kind to date, and it shows a clear correlation between infection levels and impaired cognition.
Contrary to public perception and horrific cases that make headlines, serious mental problems are declining among the nation's youth, and there has been a big rise in how many are getting help, a new study finds. The study is mostly good news: more children and teens are taking mental health medicines than ever before, but more also are getting therapy, not just pills.
