Online teachers can work from anywhere, but it's not always easy

Online teachers can work from anywhere, but it's not always easy | Communication design | Scoop.it
Thompson said he’s an outlier among his military colleagues, few of whom maintain outside jobs while deployed. But in distance education, he’s far from alone. Online courses are often discussed in terms of opening opportunities for students in disparate locations. But instructors are increasingly seizing opportunities to teach from their homes or other locations convenient to their needs, if their institutions let them.

Memory Plant: A Flower That Seems to Remember When Pollinators Will Come Calling

Memory Plant: A Flower That Seems to Remember When Pollinators Will Come Calling | Communication design | Scoop.it

Can you remember what you did yesterday? If not, you might want to take a lesson from Nasa poissoniana, a star-shaped flowering plant from the Peruvian Andes with an unusual skill set.

 

These plants can gymnastically wave around their stamens — the organs they use for fertilization — to maximize the distribution of their pollen. More surprisingly, a study published last month in Plant Signaling and Behavior suggests that individual plants can adjust the timing of these movements based on their previous experiences with pollinators. In other words, they remember the past, and try to repeat it.

The universe is expanding faster than expected, NASA data confirms

The universe is expanding faster than expected, NASA data confirms | Communication design | Scoop.it

The universe is expanding considerably faster than it should beNASA has confirmed. The space agency’s Hubble Space Telescope shows that it is growing about 9 per cent faster than had been expected, based on the trajectory it started with shortly after the Big Bang, according to astronomers. While such a discrepancy had already been suggested, the new measurements reduce the chance this is a mistake to just one in 100,000. Such a confirmation could require astronomers to find new physics theories to explain the universe‘s strange behavior.

Israeli Lander Failure Marks 1st Moon Crash in 48 Years

Israeli Lander Failure Marks 1st Moon Crash in 48 Years | Communication design | Scoop.it
Beresheet's moon crash was the first in nearly half a century. But back in the day, moon crashes happened all the time.

 

Crash debris from the uncrewed Israeli lander Beresheet will remain permanently on the lunar surface after SpaceIL's effort to land on the moon failed Thursday (April 11). It was a disappointment for the program and a setback for the private Israeli company's efforts to join the small community of organizations that have successfully landed on Earth's nearest neighbour. But it wasn't the first time that a robotic moon landing failed in this way.

Edible CRISPR Could Replace Antibiotics

Edible CRISPR Could Replace Antibiotics | Communication design | Scoop.it
Researchers are developing a probiotic to make disease-causing bacteria self-destruct.

 

As resistance to antibiotics grows in the U.S., researchers are looking for new ways to fight germs like Clostridium difficile, a bacterium that can cause fatal infections in hospitals and nursing homes.

One way to do that: a “CRISPR pill” that instructs harmful bacteria to self-destruct.

CRISPR is the powerful gene-editing technology already being explored as a way to precisely edit human genes to cure diseases (see "Can CRISPR Save Ben Dupree?"). But the technology’s versatility is such that it’s being studied for a huge range of other uses. Just last week scientists in Boston showed they could craft CRISPR into cheap, simple diagnostic tests.

Now scientists want to turn it into ultra-precise antimicrobial treatments to “specifically kill your bacteria of choice,” says food scientist Jan-Peter Van Pijkeren of the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

Virus lurking inside banana genome has been destroyed with CRISPR

Virus lurking inside banana genome has been destroyed with CRISPR | Communication design | Scoop.it

A virus that inserts itself into the genome of a type of banana plagues plantations in Africa, but CRISPR gene editing can be used to eliminate the viral DNA. Genome editing has been used to destroy a virus that lurks inside many of the bananas grown in Africa. Other teams are trying to use it to make the Cavendish bananas sold in supermarkets worldwide resistant to a disease that threatens to make it impossible to grow this variety commercially in future.

 

An Australian team has already genetically engineered the Cavendish to make it resistant by adding a gene from a wild banana. But because of the opposition to GM food worldwide, this variety may never be grown commercially. Using CRISPR is seen as preferable because some countries including the US do not regard genome edited plants as transgenic, depending on what has been done. Because the Cavendish is a sterile mutant that can only be propagated by cloning, there is no way to breed resistant varieties. Instead, several teams worldwide are trying to use CRISPR to make it resistant to Tropical Race 4.

Could There Be Life on Mars Today? | Space

Could There Be Life on Mars Today? | Space | Communication design | Scoop.it
The search for life on Mars shouldn't focus exclusively on the distant past, some researchers say.

 

Four billion years ago, the Martian surface was apparently quite habitable, featuring rivers, lakes and even a deep ocean. Indeed, some astrobiologists view ancient Mars as an even better cradle for life than Earth was, and they suspect that life on our planet may have come here long ago aboard Mars rocks blasted into space by a powerful impact.

Climate change: Scientists test radical ways to fix Earth's climate | Communication design | Scoop.it

Scientists in Cambridge plan to set up a research centre to develop new ways to repair the Earth's climate. It will investigate radical approaches such as refreezing the Earth's poles and removing CO2 from the atmosphere. The center is being created because of fears that current approaches will not on their own stop dangerous and irreversible damage to the planet.

Brains of blind people adapt to sharpen sense of hearing, study shows | Communication design | Scoop.it

Research has shown that people who are born blind or become blind early in life often have a more nuanced sense of hearing, especially when it comes to musical abilities and tracking moving objects in space (imagine crossing a busy road using sound alone). For decades scientists have wondered what changes in the brain might underlie these enhanced auditory abilities.

Unusual Galaxies Defy Dark Matter Theory

Unusual Galaxies Defy Dark Matter Theory | Communication design | Scoop.it

After drawing both praise and skepticism, the team of astronomers who discovered NGC 1052-DF2 – the very first known galaxy to contain little to no dark matter – are back with stronger evidence about its bizarre nature.

 

Dark matter is a mysterious, invisible substance that typically dominates the makeup of galaxies; finding an object that’s missing dark matter is unprecedented, and came as a complete surprise.

“If there’s one object, you always have a little voice in the back of your mind saying, ‘but what if you’re wrong?’ Even though we did all the checks we could think of, we were worried that nature had thrown us for a loop and had conspired to make something look really special whereas it was really something more mundane,” said team leader Pieter van Dokkum, Sol Goldman Family Professor of Astronomy at Yale University.

The accidental space library: Elon Musk launched books to space that could last 14 billion years

The accidental space library: Elon Musk launched books to space that could last 14 billion years | Communication design | Scoop.it
That Tesla Roadster? It's actually a stealth space library launched to space aboard the Falcon Heavy rocket thanks to a tweet sent to Elon Musk.

 

Humanity's first-ever permanent space library was effectively founded this week, as the three books of Isaac Asimov's Foundation Trilogy blasted into the solar system. The novels weren't really expected to make it to space. They weren't deliberately chosen. But they will probably be out there for millions of years, zipping around the sun, moving out past Mars 20 times faster than a bullet — and they almost certainly won't be the last.

 

Another reason you might have missed the news is because the library's curator — an entrepreneur with a fitting space name, Nova Spivack — wasn't allowed to send out so much as a press release in advance of the launch, despite it being a triumph for his young knowledge-preserving nonprofit, the Arch Mission Foundation

 

"We agreed to secrecy," Spivack tells Mashable, before thanking SpaceX, and its CEO Elon Musk, for letting him speak out post-launch about his part in what he calls "the most epic brilliant piece of performance art in world history."
