How techy is Eric?

Posted Fri, 11 Jul 2014 16:09:00 GMT by Dave Armstrong

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.

Now for the final fight against greed and selfishness. When the elephants are extinct, as seems likely at the moment, that ivory price in China will rise even higher!

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?

Malaria cure at last on the horizon

Malaria cure at last on the horizon

Posted Wed, 02 Jul 2014 06:13:00 GMT by Dave Armstrong

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.

Posted Mon, 30 Jun 2014 08:58:00 GMT by Dave Armstrong

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!

How are butterflies and moths related?

When science illuminates an area, it's not always easy to see how. In this case we try and show that the brilliant butterfly or moth has a fascinating ancestry and intriguing sets of current relatives. The publication of this paper is great progress, but we doubt if we can fully explain, more than just show the pics and links!

Energy aplenty from solar PV

Energy aplenty from solar PV

Posted Tue, 24 Jun 2014 09:02:43 GMT by Dave Armstrong

The future for solar photovoltaic cells is bright. With wind and tidal power still developing, the efficient PV cells being developed seem sure to absorb more renewable sun-power than before and really push solar energy as a dominant form of energy. This league table will change a lot in the future but several countries are really setting out their store (and grabbing a part of the big market for cells.)

We suffer from poisoning of our marine life with substances such as mercury, but there is also the problem that there are few left. Conservation of the little we have left in populated coastal areas is now essential, but governments still drag their feet.

Why and how do island species suffer so much from cats, rats and dogs, and the rest of the invasive species? A few hundred years too late, we might finally be getting around to countering the effects of predators on the most vulnerable of animal species. There are also the native predators to consider, of course.

Why should we mourn an African elephant? Maybe because they mourn their own dead. Or better, because the environments of Africa today contains a mere 10,000, reducing annually by a massive number. The Chinese have to stop their trade in many countries and we have to fight for our elephants very hard. Otherwise, all 3 species will be extinct, like the mammoths.

After such a long time, it's amazing that the Mediterranean hasn't been swamped by industrial revolutions or the effects of so many wars. Now the ancient writing on the wall is coming true as recent pollution from fossil fuels acidify and warm the troubled waters. What can we all do about our whole earth climate, after the Med, it’s the Atlantic and then the Pacific. How long can nature hold out against the onslaught of ignorant emissions that we provide?
