Geology IN: 'Superdeep' diamonds provide new insight into earth's carbon cycle

Geology IN: 'Superdeep' diamonds provide new insight into earth's carbon cycle | Science and Global Education Trends | Scoop.it

Researchers at the University of Bristol have discovered new insights into previously hidden parts of the earth's carbon cycle.

Researchers discovered new insights into earths previously hidden carbon cycle. They discovered that rare diamonds form in the carbon cycle when the tectonic plate reacts to the earths mantle. The researchers came up with a unique mineral makeup that is observed in inclusions in natural superdeep diamonds. It provides an explanation for the samples of the superdeep diamonds. I think that this article is pretty cool. Not only do researchers find out something new created in the carbon cycle, they find out why it happens. Scientists are learning something new everyday which I find fascinating. Since the researchers don't know everything about the diamonds makes it more mysterious and makes you kinda want to find out everything about it.

A mummified caveman died with gut microbes. The bacteria is known for giving people stomach ulcers, gastric carcinoma and some pretty severe stomach diseases.By the bacteria scientists could find out about who his people were and how they came to live in the region. The "mummy" was found in the Eastern Italian Alps where he was naturally mummified by the ice after his death. A lot of examinations have revealed his age, what he wore and what he ate, how old he was, hep suffered for heart and gum disease, and his 61 tattoos have been mapped. The discovery gives hints of human migration patterns in Europe. It's crazy that the technology we have now you can find bacteria in a cavemans stomach that died over 5,000 years ago. That just by that discover they can find out more about him and his peers at that time I think is really cool. I like this article because it shows that discoveries are made everyday, and that those discoveries can help us learn more about people and how they lived many many many years ago.

Greenland's Ice Sheet Releases 400,000 Metric Tons of Phosphorus Yearly, Study Says

Greenland's glaciers contain meltwater with extremely high levels of phosphorus.

Andrew Patterson's comment, February 4, 9:41 PM
~ Followup Analysis: Glacier's are rubbing against rocks producing more Phosphorus. This article was important because it is bringing things to the ocean that may or may not harm it. It could be washed upon Greenland's Fjords, or dissolved in the sea where it may be used for Algae. This amount of Phosphorus almost comes close to the world's largest rivers, in phosphorus amounts. But it is unknown how much it will produce in the future.
Caden Wyatt's curator insight, February 6, 4:20 PM

How come since it could help the growth of plankton why haven't no one has been trying to control it. I really just want to know is can it hurt or kill some of the organisms in the rivers, lakes, and oceans.

Greenland has glacier that producing phosphorus that may lead to other thing imagineable and a planton growth may increase to exess phosphorus bing released into the ocean and the phosphorus produced to moving against rock

Bernabe piedra's comment, February 9, 9:25 PM
To me this article disturbed me but was pretty intersting. Because now that I know about some bad things that could be going on with my new clothing now I know just to wash them. But like who doesn't wash their clothes when they first buy them? Ha but whatever this article was really cool and I think other people should read about it
Jordan Smith's comment, February 10, 3:44 PM
Summary: People may not think that it is important to wash your newly bought clothes when you buy them. 'They were washed before they're put in stores.' That may be but there are other people's body parts having been in/on it due to them trying it on. Scientists have looked into it and have found all the different chemicals that may have been sprayed on the plants, and bugs that stayed in these plants. There are many ways to get sick or a disease from not washing the clothing item(s).
Jordan Smith's comment, February 10, 3:49 PM
Reaction: This article was very interesting. I knew that it was important to wash the clothes once you take them home, but I wasn't aware of all the things that could've happened to the clothes starting out from the plant to my closet. This is very interesting and I will continue to wash my clothes when I get home from the store, especially after reading this article.

This article is showing that through satellites they may have found a canyon as deep as the Grand Canyon. The canyon is in East Antartica, and is covered in layer of ice. Scientist believe that it is .6 miles deep and more then 680 miles long. They also think that there maybe be a large river network under the canyon.

Lizard shoots blood from eye as a defence mechanism

Lizard shoots blood from eye as a defence mechanism | Science and Global Education Trends | Scoop.it
The horned lizard is quite an inventive little creature. It has got several techniques to prevent itself from being eaten. Starting with camouflage and a spikey back, ending with squirting blood from the eye if necessary. Amazingly, the lizard can even distinguish species of predators in order to use the most effective defence mechanism. If you’re a snake, the horned lizard will puff up its torso to look big and difficult to swallow. If you’re a canine – a coyote, dog or wolf- you’ll get served with a disgusting stream of blood.

Reaction: It is sad what happened to these people; nobody knows a whole lot about this disease so other than the removal of the warts, no one really knows what comes next. No one knows whether the warts will grow back, or if the removal will have some sort of side effect. At least when they remove it, it will give then something to work with, to study and learn more about this disease to help others who may suffer from this in the future.

Theres rare disease that caused bark-like warts to sprout on hands, legs and maybe in other parts of the body. Theres a man that this on his arm and legs his name is Abul Bajandar. The name of the disease is called epidermodysplasia verruciformi. It appeared on Abul Bajandar ten years ago.the director said only three people in the world have this.

My opinion is that it's sad that this people have this disease; because not alot of people know about it. I wouldn't know what to do if I were Abul Bajandar.I seen something similar to this disease but I didn't know what it was called.

andrea luan villa's comment, February 10, 6:23 PM
The Romans had public baths and toilets. They discovered that they had parasites like whip worms, roundworms and entamoeba histolytica dyseitery. It actually increased the health of the people. Maybe the warm waters in the bath houses spreader the parasitic worms. Or maybe because the Romans enjoy

Michael Levi Brown's comment, February 4, 7:10 PM
So for starters, I would like to say this is a stupid experiment. They basically use super cold magnets to hold some hydrogen in place, then superheat it and make plasma, a very interesting substance that has traits of all 3 other forms of matter. Now, I don't have to say how dangerous that is, an example disaster is having a magnet heat up too much during the process. Cause then the plasma would fall and pretty much melt everything for a small amount of time. A second problem is the means of this "fusion". THEY LITERALLY SMASH THEM TOGETHER, UNTIL THEY STAY TOGETHER! Like, are you serious? That in itself could go horribly wrong. Nobody knows what they are messing with here. Not them, not us, nobody. Yet we treat it like a little toy for experimenting on. We are literally playing with fire. Except the fire is as hot as stars. Yeah. Anyway, I'll conclude this here. Until next time, I guess.

My summary: This article is about how Lee studied grandma elephants . Grandma elephants play a major role in keeping track of the baby, helping the baby when it's stuck or just helping take care of the baby when it needs different things. Some elephants don't have grandparents because some elephants don't live to see their children's children.
Jada L's comment, February 10, 1:11 PM
My opinion: I really liked this article and hope to see more articles about animals & their families. I especially love this article because elephants are my favorite animals. But grandmas are amazing cause they do take care of their grandchildren.
