Scientists Map Britain’s Most Famous Underwater City

Researchers have created a 3D visualization of Dunwich using acoustic imaging

Elysse Publico's insight:

I found this article very interesting. It's crazy to think that a storm could of possibly swept out an entire city from churches, farmland,an houses. I found it interesting how it is often called "Britain’s Atlantis". I feel like if there were more advanced technology it would be alot easier to be able to see under water even though it is muddy an not visable to see anything. Its crazy that stoms can actaully get that bad to the point it "swallows" an entire town. I think now its more of historal site to be seen. It said "Global climate change has made coastal erosion a topical issue in the 21st Century, but Dunwich demonstrates that it has happened before..."

5 weird things fast food does to your brain

5 weird things fast food does to your brain | Anatomy | Scoop.it
We don't need to remind you what fast food can do to your body, but you might not know these surprising ways it can screw with your brain.

Via Kathy Bosiak
Elysse Publico's insight:

I found this article interesting cause it is somewhat true. Fast food places alot more cheaper than other places. Its alot faster than going to a sit in restuarant. Most kids would typically choose a fast food place like McDonalds cause of the play area an happy meals. 

I never realized that some fast food places use the same colors in their logos nor that the colors they use helps to start your metabolism and will increase your hunger.

This article reveals how fast food screws with your brain. It effects you in many ways that sound crazy, but they're true! Fast food can do alot of things to your mental, and physical health without even eating there. Just seeing the logos can increase your metabloism making you hungry. Some food can have the same effects as drug use, and you can go off withdraws from not eating it They also give you a demand for fast paced living, resulting in unfufilling normal pleasures such as nature, and art.

I think this article was really interesting, and overall educating. I think its crazy how fast food places can mess with your thinking, without you even knowing. The lab rat testing really suprised me, because they were as addicting as cocaine!! I'll never eat at taco bell again, because it leads to depression, and sadness, even though i'm really going to miss my Beefy 5 layer burrito!!! I would recommend anybody read this, and I would like to learn more about it.

A fungus takes over the ants' brains - makes them do things they normally wouldn't do - then kills them. You can help fund new research on these ants.

Elysse Publico's insight:

These ants are take over by a fungus. A fungus takes control of an ant’s brain, in order to reproduce. It then attaches itself to a leaf or even a twig and then kills it. Ophiocordyceps is the genus name for several fungus. I think its crazy how a fungus can take over an ant. The zombie ant is usually found in tropical areas.

Whaling in Greenland: To hunt or not to hunt?

Via Northern_Clips, Kathy Bosiak
Elysse Publico's insight:

I personally do not agree with whale hunting. It falls under the catgegory of animal abuse weather it is alive or not. Whales do have a part in the ecosystem as well. I think that if people continue to slaughter whales for personal consumption then eventaully they will become extinct. 

This article was interesting yet disturbing. I was surprised that the throat was the most tastiest part on the whale. Residents of west Greenland killed almost 150 minke whales last year.

Ceiba Foundation - Sloths: Chew Your Food Slowly

Ceiba Foundation - Sloths: Chew Your Food Slowly | Anatomy | Scoop.it

Via Kathy Bosiak
Elysse Publico's insight:

Sloths are  primitive mammal family Xenarthra.  Sloths have been able to adopt to survive  off of just leaves as their diet .  They are the only mammals that can manage to survive off of just eating leaves as their diet.  Sloths all have extremely durable, blunt teeth that they use like anvils to pulverize their leafy lunch. Sloths are like cows living in trees. They both chew their food very slowly.

1. Sloths are unique and harmless animals that have made significant adaptations to survive on a very low-nutrient food source. They are one of the only mammals that can survive off a leaf diet for their whole lives. They have never really changed since they were first discovered. They do not have a high metabolism and that is why they are so lazy, because they do not have to feed most of the active cells. 2. Sloths are really interesting creatures. It must suck to know that if you go to a tropical place for their forest to see their animals you will most likely not see sloths. They live high up in trees and I find it really interesting how they will only come down when they have to use the bathroom, and they use the bathroom like once every month or less. Sloths really adapt well, they only eat leafs so their metabolism is not high, which makes them lazy. They live high up in trees making algae grow on their fur. They are very calm animals that live in the tropical forest, they make no noises or disturb anything. They are very unique animals and I hope to see one if i ever go to a tropical forest.
