The Sun's Activity May Help Determine How Long You'll Live

The Sun's Activity May Help Determine How Long You'll Live | Love | Scoop.it

The sun sustains life on Earth, and maybe that's not all it does. Provocative new research by scientists in Norway suggests there may be a link between solar activity at the time of your birth and how long you're likely to live.

Specifically, the scientists found that the life spans of people born during a so-called "solar maximum" period - when the sun displays the greatest number of sunspots and solar flares in any given solar cycle - are about five years shorter than those of people born in a solar minimum period, when the sun is less active.

Houston Anthropologist Reveals Proof that Recorded History Is Wrong - advanced human civilisations preceded our current one

Houston Anthropologist Reveals Proof that Recorded History Is Wrong - advanced human civilisations preceded our current one | Love | Scoop.it

An examination of the age of structures across the earth reveals conclusively that they were built by advanced civilizations from over 29,000 years ago.

 

Houston anthropologist, Dr. Semir Osmanagich, founder of the Bosnian Archaeology Park, the most active archaeology site in the world, declares that irrefutable scientific evidence exists of ancient civilizations with advanced technology that leaves us no choice but to change our recorded history.

Scientists Suggest Aliens May Have Sent Space Seeds To Create Life On Earth

Scientists Suggest Aliens May Have Sent Space Seeds To Create Life On Earth | Love | Scoop.it

Scientists in the U.K. have examined a tiny metal circular object, and are suggesting it might be a micro-organism deliberately sent by extraterrestrials to create life on Earth.

Don't be fooled by the size of the object in the microscopic image above. It may appear to look like a planet-sized globe, but in fact, it's no bigger than the width of a human hair.

 

The University of Buckingham reports that the minuscule metal globe was discovered by astrobiologist Milton Wainwright and a team of researchers who examined dust and minute matter gathered by a high-flying balloon in Earth's stratosphere.

 

"It is a ball about the width of a human hair, which has filamentous life on the outside and a gooey biological material oozing from its centre," Wainwright said...

Stephen Hawking: “The Absence of Event Horizons Means There are No Black Holes"

Stephen Hawking: “The Absence of Event Horizons Means There are No Black Holes" | Love | Scoop.it

Stephen Hawking has set the world of physics back on its heels by reversing his lifetime’s work and a pillar of modern physics.

 

He claims that black holes do not exist – saying that the idea of an event horizon, the invisible boundary thought to shroud every black hole -- the awesome gravitational pull created by the collapse of a star will be so strong that nothing can break free including light -- is flawed.

 

Hawking proposes that instead of an inescapable event horizon, we should think of an “apparent horizon”. “The absence of event horizons means that there are no black holes — in the sense of regimes from which light can't escape to infinity.”


“There is no escape from a black hole in classical theory. [But quantum theory] enables energy and information to escape from a black hole," Hawking told Nature. His revised theory allows matter and energy to be held for a period of time before being released back into space.


Hawking says that his revsion requires a new theory that merges gravity with the other fundamental forces of nature. “The correct treatment remains a mystery,” he observed.

Current Opinion in Insect Science: Disruption of insect transmission of plant viruses (2015)

Current Opinion in Insect Science: Disruption of insect transmission of plant viruses (2015) | Love | Scoop.it

Plant-infecting viruses are transmitted by a diverse array of organisms including insects, mites, nematodes, fungi, and plasmodiophorids. Virus interactions with these vectors are diverse, but there are some commonalities. Generally the infection cycle begins with the vector encountering the virus in the plant and the virus is acquired by the vector. The virus must then persist in or on the vector long enough for the virus to be transported to a new host and delivered into the plant cell. Plant viruses rely on their vectors for breaching the plant cell wall to be delivered directly into the cytosol. In most cases, viral capsid or membrane glycoproteins are the specific viral proteins that are required for transmission and determinants of vector specificity. Specific molecules in vectors also interact with the virus and while there are few-identified to no-identified receptors, candidate recognition molecules are being further explored in these systems. Due to the specificity of virus transmission by vectors, there are defined steps that represent good targets for interdiction strategies to disrupt the disease cycle. This review focuses on new technologies that aim to disrupt the virus–vector interaction and focuses on a few of the well-characterized virus–vector interactions in the field. In closing, we discuss the importance of integration of these technologies with current methods for plant virus disease control.

OCEANS ACIDIFYING FAST: Rapidly Rising CO2 causing potential catastrophe

OCEANS ACIDIFYING FAST: Rapidly Rising CO2 causing potential catastrophe | Love | Scoop.it

 

 

Since the industrial revolution began, we have released 2 trillion tons of carbon dioxide (CO2) into the atmosphere, and about one-third of it went into the ocean. We initially thought that the ocean taking up CO2 was a good thing – because it took it out of the atmosphere. Unfortunately, we were wrong.  There has been a 30% increase in the acidity of the ocean since 1700, and we now expect that by 2100, it will have become a 100% increase. This constitutes a rate of change in ocean chemistry that is 10 times anything scientists can document over the last 50 million years.

-▶ ANIMALS DISSOLVING DUE TO CARBON EMISSIONS. Marine snails, also known as sea butterflies, are dissolving in the Southern Seas due to anthropogenic carbon emissions, according to a new study in Nature GeoScience. Scientists have discovered that the snail's shells are being corroded away as pH levels in the ocean drop due to carbon emissions, a phenomenon known as ocean acidification. The snails in question, Limacina helicina antarctica, play a vital role in the food chain, as prey for plankton, fish, birds, and even whales. http://news.mongabay.com/2012/1203-hance-ocean-acidification-dissolving-snails.html

When reading this article i find it amazing what is going on around the world. Places like Antarctica are changing dramatically in ways people are not in control of. What used to be an icy and colder places is now deteriorating and melting. I find it scary in a way because what else is going to change as the years go by. What are the next generation of people going to be apart of or get to witnesses now that many places and things are coming closer to be extinct.

NASA Shuts Down Live Video Feed As Massive UFO Appears | Love | Scoop.it

6th January, 2015 -- As NASA were broadcasting their live feed showing the International Space Station - what looked like a giant UFO appeared on screen, surprising viewers of the live stream.

 

Very shortly afterwards NASA cut the live feed and removed the video from its archives.

 

A “UFO Hunter” who was watching the feed managed to capture stills from the feed as the UFO appeared.  What do you make of this? A UFO or something else?

The Octave of Energy

The Octave of Energy | Love | Scoop.it

The Law of Octaves was first suggested by Pythagoras in ancient Greece. Having observed that the eight notes of the conventional Occidental musical scale were governed by definite mathematical relationships, Pythagoras proceeded to create a whole cosmology based on 8s. In this octagonal model Pythagoras made numerous mistakes, because he was generalizing from insufficient data. However, his work was the first attempt in history to unify science, mathematics, art and mysticism into one comprehensible system and as such is still influential. Leary, Crowley and Buckminster Fuller have all described themselves as modern Pythagoreans.

'Bright Spot' on Ceres is actually two spots

'Bright Spot' on Ceres is actually two spots | Love | Scoop.it

Dwarf planet Ceres continues to puzzle scientists as NASA's Dawn spacecraft gets closer to being captured into orbit around the object. The latest images from Dawn, taken nearly 29,000 miles (46,000 kilometers) from Ceres, reveal that a bright spot that stands out in previous images lies close to yet another bright area.

 

"Ceres' bright spot can now be seen to have a companion of lesser brightness, but apparently in the same basin. This may be pointing to a volcano-like origin of the spots, but we will have to wait for better resolution before we can make such geologic interpretations," said Chris Russell, principal investigator for the Dawn mission, based at the University of California, Los Angeles.

Ceres is a mini planet (about 950 km diameter and, it seems, perfectly round. It orbits the sun in the asteroid belt, somewhere between Mars and Jupiter.


It seems strange to find a perfectly round object together with the irregularly shaped asteroids, which are most probably the pieces of a former planet that was destroyed. And to make things even more strange, Ceres has a pair of strong light emitting points, now imaged by Dawn space probe, as it draws closer ...

The Sainsbury Lab's curator insight, December 8, 2014 5:30 AM

The domestication of wheat in the Fertile Crescent 10,000 years ago led to a genetic bottleneck. Modern agriculture has further narrowed the genetic base by introducing extreme levels of uniformity on a vast spatial and temporal scale. This reduction in genetic complexity renders the crop vulnerable to new and emerging pests and pathogens. The wild relatives of wheat represent an important source of genetic variation for disease resistance. For nearly a century farmers, breeders, and cytogeneticists have sought to access this variation for crop improvement. Several barriers restricting interspecies hybridization and introgression have been overcome, providing the opportunity to tap an extensive reservoir of genetic diversity. Resistance has been introgressed into wheat from at least 52 species from 13 genera, demonstrating the remarkable plasticity of the wheat genome and the importance of such natural variation in wheat breeding. Two main problems hinder the effective deployment of introgressed resistance genes for crop improvement: (1) the simultaneous introduction of genetically linked deleterious traits and (2) the rapid breakdown of resistance when deployed individually. In this review, we discuss how recent advances in molecular genomics are providing new opportunities to overcome these problems.

-▶ REPORT WARNS AGAINST UNSUSTAINABLE EXPLOITATION OF DEEP OCEAN RESOURCES.  Scientists are warning against unchecked exploitation of deep ocean resources in the coming decades, saying that the lack of a regulatory framework for areas outside territorial waters opens the door for unsustainable development.
The deep sea is important to many critical processes that affect the Earth’s climate, including acting as a “sink” for greenhouse gases – helping offset the growing amounts of carbon dioxide emitted into the atmosphere. It also regenerates nutrients through upwelling that fuel the marine food web in productive coastal systems such as the Pacific Northwest of the United States, Chile and others. Increasingly, fishing and mining industries are going deeper and deeper into the oceans to extract natural resources. http://summitcountyvoice.com/2014/10/07/environment-report-warns-against-unsustainable-exploitation-of-deep-ocean-resources/

Greenpeace New Zealand, October 01, 2014
TAKE ACTION NOW TO STOP DEEP SEA OIL - #StopStatoil

Norwegian oil giant Statoil has a permit to drill in the deep waters off the beautiful west coast of Northland. It is an area of outstanding beauty, a migratory path for whales, the home of many Maori tribal groups and a paradise for surfers. Yet, this summer Statoil plans to begin seismic testing - a process of firing loud sonic explosions through the ocean - as a first step towards dangerous deepwater drilling, if they find oil.
     The catastrophic oil disaster in the Gulf of Mexico showed us the risks of deep sea drilling. And it showed that the price of an accident is borne by the wildlife, coastal communities and economy. New Zealand doesn’t need to take this risk.

Project World Awareness, September 07, 2014
 ▶   LIFE ON THIS EARTH JUST CHANGED ... THE NORTH ATLANTIC CURRENT IS GONE. The entire ‘river of warm water’ that flows from the Caribbean to the edges of Western Europe is dying due to the Corexit that the Obama Administration allowed BP to use to hide the scale of the BP Deepwater Horizon Oil Disaster. The approximately two million gallons of Corexit, plus several million gallons of other dispersants, have caused the over two hundred million gallons of crude oil, that has gushed for months from the BP wellhead and nearby sites, to mostly sink to the bottom of the ocean. This has helped to effectively hide much of the oil, with the hopes that BP can seriously reduce the mandated federal fines from the oil disaster. However, there is no current way to effectively ‘clean up’ the bottom of the Gulf of Mexico, which is about half covered in crude oil. Additionally, the oil has flowed up the East Coast of America and into the North Atlantic Ocean. It is likely, based on numerous reports, that the oil is still flowing in massive amounts from multiple places on the seabed floor. This effectively means, that even if we had the technology in place to somehow clean up the free flowing thick crude oil deep in the ocean, it would likely not be enough to reverse the damage to the Thermohaline Circulation System in the Atlantic Ocean.

The fish near the bottom of the aquatic food chain are often overlooked, but they are vital to healthy oceans and estuaries. Collectively known as forage fish, these species—including sardines, anchovies, herrings, and shrimp-like crustaceans called krill—feed on plankton and become food themselves for larger fish, seabirds, and marine mammals.

DERELICT FISHING NETS HAVE TURNED THE BOTTOM OF THE SEA INTO A DEATH TRAP. Each year, at least 640,000 tonnes of nets and other fishing gear goes overboard and never comes back. But just because it’s lost to the sea doesn’t mean that derelict gear stops doing its jobs. The lobster pots, crab traps and dense thickets of nets that litter the sea bottom keep snaring fish and other animals for years or even decades after they go missing.http://qz.com/247942/derelict-fishing-nets-have-turned-the-bottom-of-the-sea-into-a-death-trap-2/

NOAA Fisheries West Coast Region, December 2014
- ▶ WHALE SHARKS, BIGGEST FISH IN THE OCEAN RECEIVES INTERNATIONAL PROTECTION FROM CORPORATE INDUSTRIAL FISHING. Commercial fishermen have known for some time that tuna, along with many other species of fish, congregate around objects drifting on the ocean surface. Fishermen often build floating structures called FADs, or fish-aggregating devices, to attract tuna to an area, allowing them to capitalize on this behavior. Using FADs makes the job of finding and encircling the tuna in the purse seine nets much more efficient.
Fishermen also learned that whale sharks are so large that they naturally attract tuna, much like a FAD. This led some fishermen to deploy nets around a whale shark to capture tuna swimming beneath it. In many of the cases, the encircled whale shark was also caught in the net and injured or died. http://www.westcoast.fisheries.noaa.gov/stories/2014/18_12182014_whale_shark_protection.html

              THE JELLIFICATION OF OUR SEAS - GREAT PHOTOS

As fish populations deplete, jellyfish populations are growing throughout much of the world. The fact that human beings and jellyfish tangle with one another more frequently than in the past is unpleasant for both sides. It also costs many millions each year. Here, a diver attaches a sensor to a large Echizen jellyfish off the coast of Komatsu in northern Japan... http://www.spiegel.de/fotostrecke/photo-gallery-the-jellification-of-the-seas-fotostrecke-98970.html

FEEDING FIRST THAT WHICH, IN TURN, FEEDS US.  Men have got to stop raping and pillaging the precious resources of our planet to extinction, for it will ultimately lead to extinction of the human race.  We depend on a healthy balanced natural world for our own health and wellbeing.  The quarterly profit bottomline should drive extinction
