The independent scholar collected official government data from weather stations for many years, compared them with data processed in an office promoting the global warming thesis, and discovered system corrections. Gray - accurate data of weather stations, blue line - data corrected.

TIL that not all organelles are membrane-bound. This was a bit mind blowing. When my brain is working better, I'll try to read a bit more about this.

"The effects of antidepressant exposure during early development can pass down through three generations of offspring—at least in zebrafish. A new study, published today (December 10) in PNAS, reveals that fluoxetine, a commonly used antidepressant that goes by the brand name Prozac, can alter hormone levels and blunt stress responses in an exposed embryo and its descendants.

“The paper is very intriguing,” says Tim Oberlander, a developmental pediatrician at the British Columbia Children’s Hospital who was not involved in this work. The question of whether these medications have a transgenerational effect is “a really important one that requires further study in other animal models, and ultimately, when we have the data, we need to figure out whether it’s also true in humans.”

Fluoxetine is a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI), a class of drugs widely used to treat depression as well as other conditions such as obsessive-compulsive disorder and anxiety disorders. Recent data from the US National Health and Nutrition... show more
 
"Taosheng Huang, a pediatrician and medical geneticist who heads the Mitochondrial Diseases Program at the Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center, stumbled upon the first individual with mtDNA from both his parents by accident. The patient, a four-year-old boy who had some symptoms of a mitochondrial disorder, including fatigue and exercise intolerance, had come to be evaluated by Huang. The doctor sent his blood sample to the hospital’s diagnostic lab for mtDNA sequencing. The results showed that the boy appeared to have two populations of mitochondrial genomes, both at a relatively high level.

“My first instinct was that this was a mistake—even though I’ve never, in six years, seen our diagnostics lab make a mistake like this,” says Huang. He asked the patient to come back, drew a fresh blood sample himself, then sent the blood to the diagnostics lab, an in-house research lab, and an independent laboratory for sequencing. “We saw the same result come back from all three labs. That’s when I said, ‘Ok, this must be r... show more

The unfortunate tenacity of the most common piece of litter - over 750 million to 1,500 million pounds of cigarette butt waste


Cigarette butts have the proud distinction of being the most common form of litter on America's beaches. Some 6 trillion cigarettes are manufactured on Earth each year, and between 750 million to 1,500 million pounds of cigarette butt waste — largely made of a plastic-like material called cellulose acetate — are ultimately flung to the ground annually, according to the World Health Organization.

To be fair, not all cigarettes are flung or flicked to the ground. Over a quarter of littered cigarette are stomped, while around 35 percent are "dropped with intent." Just one percent of smokers shoot for a receptacle, but like Shaq at the free-throw line, miss.

Dumping your waste on the ground, which is at best a lame and short-sighted activity, isn't some mindless, subconscious habit. It's a committed effort, explained Wes Schultz, a social psychologist who has diligently observed and researched the phenomenon of people's prope... show more

A recipe to understand atomic structures:

* Mix electrically-charged gas in a sealed container with particles so small they would pass through a coffee filter.

* Perform in the weightless environment of the International Space Station.

* Adjust voltage to observe how the particles form three-dimensional crystal structures.

* Start unlocking the physics behind the atoms' behaviour.
