A fly in your ear!

A fly in your ear!

Posted Wed, 23 Jul 2014 13:32:00 GMT by JW Dowey

The miracle of hearing has come to a tiny fly that couldn’t possibly find its prey without a totally unique method of locating crickets. Business needs to start creating a packaged system that can economically help our deaf and hard-of-hearing to hear the real world again.

Alberta Tar Sands pollution evidence is devastating

Alberta Tar Sands pollution evidence is devastating

Posted Tue, 22 Jul 2014 10:15:00 GMT by Dave Armstrong

The disgraceful lack of control and study of the Alberta tar sands exploitation is leading to people's health problems. As the US considers its imports from Canada, it would be wise to consider just how neglectful the Canadians have been to their residents, air quality, water purity and forests.

The study of human relatives goes far beyond the simian primates, but this species is the smallest and probably the most unique of all our closer relatives. It’s also American, which brings genomics into the New World for the first time as far as monkeys are concerned.

We have ideas and giant international conferences coming up, on how to combat global warming and specifically what we can do with greenhouse gases. It could be, though, that some of the jokers in the pack are simply sequestering while Rome burns. After all, their employment depends on maintaining the coal, oil, gas and even fracking industries. Maybe replacing these industries with renewable energy technologies would use different engineers and spoil the party for many profitable companies?

We have always used aids to help our farming, security or surveillance. Now, as more uses appear for intelligent robotics, will we sit back and lose our fantastic disappearing skills completely, or can we maintain some of the humanity that existed throughout our long history of creativity?

We are all media people now, apart from those who have given up on the world. Now even they have been counted and placed in databases for a future with Big Brother- unless we are very careful with our freedoms. Our data should be free, but not too free, even Google’s recent experience with blocks proves that.

Diet in mammals is complex

Diet in mammals is complex

Posted Wed, 09 Jul 2014 04:01:00 GMT by Dave Armstrong

How could you classify the diets of mammals for so long without noting the need many species have for fruit, certain plants, or even a bit of animal material for a so-called herbivore? Carnivores need roughage in the same way the human diet has special requirements and herbivores can cheat by gaining essential minerals they would be unable to extract from plants.

The common substance, titanium oxide, has uses as the invaluable metal but is now rising in price as its new uses in technologies everywhere demand its presence. You can find it in foods (as additive E171), drugs, cosmetics, paint and even your jeans.

Medical research is advanced but we are obviously letting down those children who are born with a built-in disadvantage. Their mothers must be nurtured and educated to a high enough standard to ensure the child's nutritional state.

Have you ever wondered about modifying your home to make it less energy intensive? Or does the idea of building environmentally-friendly homes appeal to your government? Sustainable construction can be of anything you fancy in your property or possibly a new house on a piece of land you can acquire. You can easily make it more than a pipe-dream.

More news from Asia today.In what way do nuclear weapons affect our environmental aims? Perhaps we are all suffering from the results of previous testing. It remains to be seen exactly how important these moves towards a nuclear free world work out, after Chernobyl's disastrous aftermath and the possibilities of Fukushima's contamination of the Pacific.

The high level of profits from medical research and the possibilities of new sciences and technologies stretch our imagination, here in the office, at least. Now a distant and very ancient ancestor has very obviously given us, through simple breeding, a wonderful solution to survival at altitude. Who knows how climbers or even space travellers could benefit as we use our new knowledge?

How many people have died from what medieval Italy called the Mal Aria (bad air.) certainly more than all the wars in history! Now it is likely we have the solution for those who worry about catching malaria on their travels, or, more important, half of the tropics, who die needlessly and frequently from this biggest of killers.

It isn't just us who suffer badly from climate change and global warming. Although some species are thriving, many, such as the emperor penguin, are subject, both now and in the near future to multiple threats, leading to their extinction.

We need these forests to retain some of the remaining carbon. We need these trees so that biodiversity around them remains. We need these animals to represent something of the old earth, that used to work as an entity. We need to act very very quickly.

We need to help critically endangered species urgently.One of the most deserving and endearing is the mountain gorilla, although a real choice would be near-impossible. In Bwindi, the organisation-level is ensuring a growing population, so investment as a tourist seems one of the better prospects, given the difficulties many other species face. In some cases, your visit could conceivably cause their extinction!
