Giant blob of cold water rises from the depths of the Pacific, possibly heralding the arrival of La Niña this fall  

Here we go again? Following a mild and short-lived La Niña episode in 2016/2017, the climatic phenomenon stands a 55 to 60 percent chance of developing once again this fall and winter. That's the most recent forecast from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. Based on observations of what's happening in the Pacific Ocean, and modeling to predict what may be coming, NOAA's Climate Prediction Center has issued a La Niña watch, indicating that conditions are favorable ...

Can Neuroscience Inform Everyday Life? The "Translation Problem"  

A new paper asks why neuroscience hasn't had more "impact on our daily lives." The article, Neuroscience and everyday life: facing the translation problem, comes from Dutch researchers Jolien C. Francken and Marc Slors. It's a thought-provoking piece, but it left me feeling that the authors are expecting too much from neuroscience. I don't think insights from neuroscience are likely to change our lives any time soon. Francken and Slors describe a disconnect between neuroscience re

Lake Michigan Itself Is the Greatest Asian Carp Deterrent  

For years, people have been freaking out that Asian carp are about to invade the Great Lakes. That concern seemed more real than ever this summer after an Illinois fisherman caught a carp in June less than 10 miles from Lake Michigan — beyond the barriers designed to keep them out. These voracious fish have already decimated Midwestern rivers. They're filters feeders who feast on plankton — the tiny plants and critters that prop up foodchains. And they eat lots of them. Adult Asi...

Don't Give Up! Babies Learn Persistence from Adults  

You've probably heard the phrase, "Don't give up." I do, from my mom, all the time, and she's always led by example. A new study from MIT shows she likely taught me persistence, just from my observing her. The study reveals that kids as young as 15 months can learn persistence from adults. Of course, this also means adults setting not-so-good examples for kids could be inspiring that same behavior in them. This study is apparently the first that shows children this young can ...

Setting the Record Straight on Earthquakes  

This past month has seen Mexico suffer two major earthquakes. The latest earthquake destroyed multitudes of buildings in Mexico City and over 200 people died as a result of collapses and fires. As with any major natural disaster, a lot of misinformation or speculation gets thrown around and earthquakes tend to encourage a lot of the doomsayers. So, I thought it would be useful to try to set the record straight on what earthquakes can do, what they can't do and what may or may not cause earth

Hooded Grebes Are Bringing Sexy Back—Or Trying To  

Love is a battlefield, and in the case of the hooded grebe, that battle takes place on the dance floor. These endangered freshwater divers have a mating ritual that is not only extremely intricate, but also highly entertaining. And lucky for us, we now have it on film. Not much is known about the hooded grebe, Podiceps gallardoi, as these aquatic birds were discovered only 43 years ago in the frigid waters of Patagonia. Though they tend to keep to themselves, footage of them is incredibly

Is Lab-Grown Leather the Next Wardrobe Staple?  

Leather jackets are a must-have in many wardrobes. While some adore genuine leather straight from our bovine buds, others seek alternatives to genuine leather, whether due to price or their stance on animal products. This could be their new go-to substitute: lab-grown leather. New York-based Modern Meadow has ditched the cow in favor of growing leather in a lab. Growing materials otherwise found in nature isn't new; we've seen scientists working on in vitro meat and teeth. Leather ...

Panda Gut Microbes Change with the Seasons  

A change in seasons can mean it's time to take the sweaters out of the back of your closet, plant your garden, or—if you're a panda—remake your gut microbiome. Scientists have found that pandas, rather than a summer and winter wardrobe, have different sets of gut bacteria for different seasons. The rotating roster of bugs helps pandas make the most of their drab diet of bamboo, bamboo and more bamboo. The panda menu does have seasonal variations. Pandas munch more on different bam...

Friendly Neighborhood Delivery Drones Target Iceland  

Delivery drones are carrying customer orders for burgers and smartphones across a bay of water straddled by the Icelandic capital of Reykjavik—and that's just the start of a much more ambitious plan. Before the end of 2017, the Israeli startup Flytrex envisions sending its delivery drones to the street corners of certain Reykjavik neighborhoods. The dream of delivery drones dropping of packages on doorsteps or in backyards has faced considerable challenges in taking flight. No com...

Quantifying Drug Use With Sewage and Cell Phones  

Obtaining information about illegal drug use isn't a simple task. The illicit nature of the subject makes gathering information on the who and the what of drug consumption problematic. Self-reported surveys, a common tool, aren't always accurate because people aren't always honest about their drug use. But reliable information on drug use is a requisite for public health officials, and to gather the kind of detailed data necessary researchers in Norway turned to two an odd (at first glanc

Drone Pilot Bobs and Weaves Through Moving Freight Train  

Flying low, through a truss bridge, under a Union Pacific train, and even in a boxcar are just a few of the stunts a drone pilot shows off in a YouTube video while a UP mixed freight is in motion. The video went live on Sept. 20 and has already received more than 250,000 views as of Friday morning. The recording shows a double-tracked right-of-way bridging a river near a highway. The location appears to be just south of Verdi, Nev., on former Southern Pacific tracks over the Truckee River

Growing Up Neanderthal  

Though his life was short — he never reached the age of 8 — his fossil remains could have far-reaching influence in hominin research. A paper to be published Friday in Science reveals the discovery of the well-preserved skeleton of a Neanderthal boy who lived in Spain 49,000 years ago. The researchers discuss the fits and starts of adolescent growth for our biological cousins, leading to insights into the evolutionary development of Homo sapiens. Dental evidence reveals that the ...

We're still on track to experience the second or third warmest year globally in records dating back to 1880  

Last month was among the very warmest on record, according to two new analyses - and the heat is very likely to continue. With less than four months left to go in 2017,  the year will probably come in as second or third warmest on record. Two agencies have produced very slightly different verdicts for this past August. NASA's Goddard Institute for Space Studies has found that last month was the second warmest August globally in 137 years of modern record-keeping, surpassed only ...

Dinosaur Diet Discovery: "Plant-Eater" Snacked On Crustaceans  

Like that vegetarian friend of yours who sneaks a piece of bacon when no one's looking, it appears that at least some dinosaurs previously thought to be dedicated herbivores occasionally consumed critters. That's at least according to new research that involved getting up close and investigative with those goldmines of lifestyle information: coprolites. Researchers took a look at fossilized feces from more than 15 separate deposits within the Kaiparowits Formation of Utah. The Kaiparow...

Oldest African DNA Offers Rare Window Into Past  

A great irony about Africa is that, even though it's the birthplace of our species, we know almost nothing about the prehistoric populations who lived there: the bands of hunter gatherers who moved across the massive continent, interacting with and sometimes replacing other groups. Today that changes. Thanks to new research that includes the oldest African DNA ever successfully read, we're seeing Africa's prehistory like never before. Archaeologists and paleogeneticists are finally sta

Hackers Could Use Light to Steal Information Via Security Cameras  

Where there's a will, there's a way, and hackers have plenty of will and countless ways to attack a secure network—even if it's not connected to the internet. In the latest demonstration proving no network is safe, researchers at Ben-Gurion University of the Negev used security cameras equipped with night vision to send and receive data from a network that wasn't even connected to the internet.

Study: Mysterious Bursts From Space Occur Every Second  

Fast radio bursts (FRBs) are one of the hottest topics in astronomy right now. These short but extremely powerful bursts last only milliseconds, but release tremendous amounts of energy during that minute period of time. Since publication of their initial discovery in 2007 (the burst itself occurred in 2001), just over 25 of these sources have been identified, with only one repeater. But now, Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics astronomers have estimated that despite only the handful

Scotland's Oldest Snow Patch May Not See Another Sunrise  

Resting beneath the 1,000-foot cliffs of Scotland's Aonach's Beag mountain range, The Sphinx -one of the country's proudest snowcaps—is on its deathbed. "It's a very sorry sight," says Iain Cameron, a leading snow expert and arguably one of Edinburgh's most dedicated "snow patchers," a group of people who seek out and track the changes in the island's coldest landmarks. These patches "tend to sit in the little gullies and corries below the peaks," Cameron told ...

The Brain's Sensational Juggling Act  

You're bombarded with sensory information every day — sights, sounds, smells, touches and tastes. A constant barrage that your brain has to manage, deciding which information to trust or which sense to use as a backup when another fails. Understanding how the brain evaluates and juggles all this input could be the key to designing better therapies for patients recovering from stroke, nerve injuries, or other conditions. It could also help engineers build more realistic virtual experience...

After shrinking to a shocking record low at end of winter, Arctic sea ice staged a modest comeback this summer  

But despite claims to the contrary, one warmish summer in the Arctic does not repeal the long-term trend of human-caused warming Arctic sea ice has staged something of a short-term turn-around this summer. The underlying long-term warming of the region, caused by our emissions of heat-trapping greenhouse gases, has not abated. But relatively cool and cloudy weather in the high north during summer caused the sea ice to shrink less extensively than in some recent years. When the ic...

When Faced With Competition, Duck Penises Get Weird(er)  

Dating is a tough game. No matter where you go, it seems like there's always someone who's more attractive, funnier or remembers to shower. Losing out sucks, but hey, at least you get to keep your penis. Not so for ruddy ducks. They only grow penises during mating season, and when forced to compete for mates, the scrawnier ducks don't even bother to put in much effort. Some ruddy ducks can grow penises that measure up to seven inches in length, but the weaker among them seem to put off ...

Do We Live in a 'Normal' Galaxy?  

Our home galaxy, the Milky Way, has been a jumping-off point to our understanding of galaxies throughout the universe. And though our picture of that home galaxy has evolved over time as astronomers have developed better ways to catalog and map its contents, we've largely believed the Milky Way was a "typical" example of a spiral galaxy. Now, astronomers are taking steps to determine whether that's really true. New data from the Satellites Around Galactic Analogs (SAGA) Survey is re...

How the Invention of Zero Yielded Modern Mathematics  

A small dot on an old piece of birch bark marks one of the biggest events in the history of mathematics. The bark is actually part of an ancient Indian mathematical document known as the Bakhshali manuscript. And the dot is the first known recorded use of the number zero. What's more, researchers from the University of Oxford recently discovered the document is 500 years older than was previously estimated, dating to the third or fourth century - a breakthrough discovery. Today, i...

Another Big Earthquake Hits Mexico, This Time Near Mexico City  

For the second time this month, a large earthquake has struck Mexico. Unlike the M8.1 earthquake that occurred off the Pacific coast and far from Mexico City, this one was located under central Mexico and only ~150 kilometers from the massive Mexican capital. This new earthquake was a M7.1 located ~51 kilometers beneath the surface. That will hopefully help dampen some of the potential damage as over 8.5 million people live within 100 kilometers of this temblor. UPDATE: The death toll is no...

Why Scientists Are Flying Blood Over the Desert  

Drone delivery is sexy. We've seen Domino's pizza and 7-11 Slurpees dropped by drone. And then there are drones delivering something every human needs to live: blood. Timothy Amukele, a pathologist with Johns Hopkins University, and his team flew a drone for three hours with blood samples as its payload to see if drones offer a viable solution to transport blood over long distances in hot temperatures. It took a little ingenuity, but they once again demonstrated the usefulness of gett...

Octopuses Are Building Underwater 'Cities'  

Underneath the waves lies a lost city, home to untold riches and guarded jealously by the strange creatures who make their homes within its confines. Well, the riches are all shellfish, but "Octlantis," a newly discovered settlement inhabited by around a dozen common Sydney octopuses, does have some strange residents. Tale of Two Cities Octopuses were once considered solitary creatures, thought to roam the depths alone, meeting only to mate. But recent discoveries have begun to overtur...

Animal Hoarding Is a Unique Mental Disorder, Researchers Say  

The "cat lady" may be more than just a stereotype. After investigating roughly 30 people who collected nearly 1,400 animals total in southern Brazil, researchers now suggest that such men and women are afflicted with what they called animal hoarding disorder—not to be lumped in with object hoarding. The first scientific reports of people living with an excessive number of animals first appeared in 1981. Animal hoarding is currently thought of a variant of hoarding disorder, in which peo...

This Exoplanet Is Burning Hot and Pitch Black  

An exoplanet twice the size of Jupiter is hot, egg-shaped and coal-black. Wasp-12b orbits around a Sun-like star some 1,400 light-years away. It makes a complete orbit around its sun in just 24 hours because it lies so close to its star, and the proximity pushes the temperature to around 4,700 degrees Fahrenheit. It's so hot that molecules there are broken down into atomic hydrogen and helium, and the extreme conditions give it an albedo of just .064, making the planet's atmosphere even...

Scientific Papers Are Getting Less Readable  

"The readability of scientific texts is decreasing over time", according to a new paper just out. Swedish researchers Pontus Plaven-Sigray and colleagues say that scientists today use longer and more complex words than those of the past, making their writing harder to read. But what does it mean? Here's the key result. This image shows text readability metrics from 709,577 abstracts, drawn from 123 biomedical journals, published in English between 1881 and 2015. There's been a clear

Last Days of Cassini: An Insider's Story  

The death of the Cassini spacecraft marked the end of an era--not just the end of a mission, but the end of a whole style of exploration. Cassini was a multi-billion dollar probe, a versatile scout in the style of the Voyager and Galileo probes. It bristled with instruments that allowed it to take the measure of every part of Saturn's staggeringly complex system of moons, rings, clouds, and magnetic activity. As Cassini's program manager and a veteran of the mission since 1993, Earl H. Ma

Even With Police Body-Cam Footage, Witnesses Can Be Misled  

Body-worn cameras on police are increasingly called for in the hope they might help ease heightened tensions between officers and communities. However, scientists now find that falsified police reports and personal biases may change a person's memory of such footage to see things that were not there or never happened. Cell phone videos of clashes between police and citizens, such as that involving the death of Eric Garner in 2014, have helped drive the call for body-worn cameras on police

Cassini's Bittersweet Symphony  

The Cassini team members filled the chairs of mission control at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California. As a long-time astronomy journalist, I was invited to witness the end of an era. At 4:55 a.m. PST, Cassini's 13-year mission came to a bittersweet end when we lost signal from the spacecraft as it pierced through the cloud tops at Saturn. We've gathered in a lecture hall lined with spacecraft models, Voyager, Juno and of course, Cassini. Few people were witho...

Scientists Find 21 New Bird Species by Asking the Birds  

Same-or-different is the concept behind the most basic toddler games. We encourage kids to put the square block in the square hole, find two cards that match, place the cow in the cow-shaped puzzle slot. But in nature, the cow-shaped slots are harder to see. Deciding whether two animals are the same or different species frequently causes debates among scientists. In Central and South America, researchers tried to find the differences between many pairs of closely related birds by simply as...

Scientist Shocks Himself With an Electric Eel...Because Science  

Electric eels are fascinating creatures. They emit high voltage electricity to track and control prey, but did you know they also jump out of water to attack threats? They've even been documented leaping at horses and humans. Kenneth C.

This Hybrid Drone Just Set an Unofficial Endurance Record  

What story would you believe: A story about a drone that can fly for 4 hours or 4 minutes? Probably the latter, but this is a story about a hybrid powered drone that can fly for hours. Whether it's a researcher using drones to drop bugs onto crops or a hobbyist trying to capture epic aerial photos, drone pilots are often plagued by low flight time. But that's not a problem with Skyfront's Tailwind drone, which the company says flew for 4 hours and 34 minutes. That's right. This drone...

Getting a Tattoo Might Also Stain Your Lymph Nodes  

It's not news that tattoos are hitting the mainstream, but a new study reported in the journal Scientific Reports reveals that tattoo inks' nanoparticles are adding color to other parts of your body. As the tattooed population knows all too well, the process of tattooing consists of placing insoluble deposits of pigmented ink just below the epidermis, or outermost layer of skin. As they also know, your body does pretty much anything it can to get that ink out — which is why new tatt...

Are Genes to Blame for Cavity-causing Bacteria?  

Were you born to have bad teeth, or did you break them? When it comes to allocating blame for tooth decay, one of the most common chronic childhood diseases worldwide, experts point fingers at both genes and dental hygiene as causes.

To Save Australia's Biodiversity, Put Kangaroo on the Menu  

In Australia, a question lingers: Do we shoot the kangaroos? The proposition sounds a bit inhumane at first blush, after all, the kangaroo stands proudly on the Australian coat of arms. The bouncing beasts are a fixture of the outback. But in recent years, the roos have been doing quite well—in fact, too well. Their numbers have been bolstered by the extinction of natural predators and generous rainfall; there are now so many kangaroos, that one ecologist is calling for increased consum...

In the future, we may have drones that can autonomously change size, shape and function. Basically, Transformers is starting to get real. Currently, most autonomous robots are stuck with the function and form they were designed for, but scientists are working hard to change that. In a study published Tuesday in Nature Communications, a team led by Nithin Mathews of the Universite Libre de Bruxelles in Belgium showcased its fleet of "mergeable nervous system" (MNS) robots. Basically, their

Should Research Funding Be Distributed Equally Among Scientists?  

Instead of making scientists compete for grants based on project proposals, research funding could simply be divided equally among all 'qualified' researchers, according to a new paper. Authors Krist Vaesen and Joel Katzav argue that such an 'egalitarian' distribution of funds would still leave each grant holder with enough money to support their work and pay for students and junior researchers. But I'm not sure I agree with their logic. Vaesen and Katzav start by outlining the pro

The monster in moonlight: striking satellite image shows Irma churning north in the dead of night  

As Hurricane Irma continued to churn north over Florida early in the morning of Sept. 11, the Suomi NPP spacecraft passed overhead and sent back this dramatic image. In the image, acquired by a nighttime sensor called the "Day/Night Band" on the satellite's VIIRS instrument, the hurricane is illuminated by the relatively faint light of the moon. But the image reveals more than that. "In addition to the cloud structures, this band can help identify power outages," writes Scott Li...

This Is What It's Like Flying a Drone in the Eye of a Hurricane  

Brian Emfinger is a lifelong storm chaser, and as a photojournalist and drone pilot for KATV in Little Rock, Arkansas, his work takes him places other people would flee. He was in Rockport, Texas, when Harvey came onshore. He flew his drone after the eye passed overhead, gathering gripping shots of the aftermath across the region. But as Emfinger geared up to chase Hurricane Irma into Florida, he knew he wanted to capture a drone perspective like no other. He wanted to fly his DJI Mavi

The most extreme damage from Hurricane Irma may come from huge surges of water pushed onto land by wind  

Hurricane Irma is a true monster, exceeding the size of Florida itself, and threatening to flatten structures throughout the state with extreme winds. But perhaps the biggest risk is now posed by storm surge - water pushed up onto land. The animation above shows an experimental forecast for storm surge from the National Weather Service. It shows the height of water above the land's surface in feet over time, from 7 a.m. EST today through 7 a.m. on Tuesday. (Sept. 9 - 12, 2017.) "St...

Viking Warrior In Famous Grave Was A Woman  

This one goes out to all my fellow shieldmaidens: researchers have confirmed through ancient DNA testing that the warrior buried in a famous Viking grave was a woman. Researchers have excavated hundreds of Viking-era graves at Birka, a UNESCO World Heritage Site in Sweden. One of the graves, originally excavated in the 1880s, was particularly noteworthy for both its position — on a prominent terrace adjacent to what had been a garrison — and for its grave goods, which included a ...

How Humans Are Evolving Right Now  

Studies of human evolution typically look at spans of thousands of years — the length of time it often takes various mutations to take hold and become noticeable. Evolution is more dynamic than that though; it's an ongoing process with subtle variations on traits emerging while others dip into the background. Measuring the kinds of changes that are going on right now would give us valuable insights about not only our past, but also into where we're headed. Evolution Is Now That's wh...

Gesundheit! African Wild Dogs 'Vote' With Sneezes  

If you want to get something done in an African wild dog pack, you've got to be ready to sneeze. The animals seem to make group decisions based on a system of explosive exhalations — "sneezes" — that determine if they get up and go on the hunt. If the dogs reach a quorum of sorts, they all fall in line — no "bless you's" necessary. Sneeze If You're With Me Researchers from Swansea University and Taronga Conservation Society Australia noticed an abundance of "achoos" right before t...

The monster's eye: satellite video offers a terrifying view of Irma, 2nd strongest storm ever recorded in the Atlantic  

As I'm writing this on Wednesday morning, the eye of Hurricane Irma — a "potentially catastrophic" Category 5 storm - has passed over the islands of Barbuda, Saint Barthelemy and Saint Martin, and was shortly headed for the Virgin Islands. I shudder to think what has been happening on the ground with the storm's maximum sustained winds clocked at 185 miles per hour, according to the National Hurricane Center. This video from Saint Martin says it all:

Zika: A Potential Treatment for Brain Cancer?  

Zika has largely faded from the news cycle as efforts to control the disease have taken hold and the number of new cases has dropped. Now, it's back, not as a pending epidemic, but as a potential treatment for brain cancer. Researchers from the Washington University School of Medicine and the University of California, Santa Barbara have conducted preliminary tests with the virus as a treatment for glioblastoma, a particularly aggressive form of brain cancer. Zika, which doesn't carry man...

Dramatic satellite video shows fire and smoke from roaring blazes across more than a million acres of the U.S. West  

Smoke from the fires appears to have blown all the way across North America and more than half way across the Atlantic As of this afternoon, 77 large fires are burning across 1.4 million acres in eight western U.S. states. That's an area more than three times the size of Houston. The burning is part of a long-term trend of increasing wildfire in the West, brought on by human-caused climate change. Hardest hit by fire right now is Montana, with 26 large wildfires blazing today across...

New Dates For Neanderthals Shakes Up Long-Held Theory  

With every new find, our understanding of the twilight of the Neanderthals, our nearest hominin kin, advances. Or not. New research on some of the most famous Neanderthal fossils, from Croatia's Vindija Cave, suggest earlier analysis about their age and significance may be all wrong. Oops. More than 40 years ago, researchers in Vindija Cave unearthed hominin bones and a curious assemblage of stone and bone tools that seemed to be a mixed bag of technology styles: Some were of the t...

What Made These Footprints 5.7 Million Years Ago?  

It's the Friday before a long weekend (at least for most of us in the U.S.) and I get it: You're thinking about your plans for the next few days, wrapping up some stuff before slipping out of the office maybe a little early. You're not in the mindset of having your paradigm shifted. Sorry. A new study suggesting hominins were walking across a Greek island 5.7 million years ago is here to blow your mind. In a year of big shake-ups in the story of human evolution, a study published in the

Don't Trust Animal Characters to Teach Your Kids Morals  

Yes, Frog and Toad Are Friends, but they aren't moral authorities for your children. That's the finding of a new, fun-spoiling study on little kids and picture books. It found that kids learned a lesson about sharing from a book with human characters—but not from a book about a cute raccoon. Many children's books, of course, feature animals that act like people. And anthropomorphized animals have been imparting moral lessons since the time of Aesop. Nicole Larsen and her colleagues...

To Study Global Warming, Researchers Heated the Ocean Themselves  

A perennial problem for climate science is that much of it lies in the realm of abstraction. Various models and forecasts compete for relevance, based on arcane statistical formulations that appear as so much gibberish to science reporters and readers alike. Well, rest easy, weary travelers — here's a climate study that leaves the ponderous math behind in favor of a real-world simulation of warming Antarctic waters. Researchers from the British Antarctic Survey decided to see what t...

A Swiss supermarket is doing its part to get Westerners hooked on the eco-friendly superfood of the future: bugs. Coop is one of Switzerland's largest food retailers with over 2,200 outlets throughout the country, and it operates as a co-op with some 2.5 million members. Recently, Coop started stocking bug burgers and bug balls (like falafel) that are made by fellow Swiss company Essento. And according to Essento, the burgers and balls, made with ground mealworm and other ingredients, a...

Views from space reveal the staggering extent of Harvey's flooding – now confirmed as a 1-in-1,000-year event  

As Harvey has lumbered to the northeast, the clouds have dissipated, finally giving satellites a clear view of what the 1,000-year flooding event in southeast Texas looks like. The animation above tells the tale. I created it using images acquired by NASA's Terra satellite, the first on May 2nd, long before Harvey stormed ashore, and the second image just today. Look carefully at the center of the images and you can see the pattern of roads in the Houston area. (Click on the th...

No, NASA Isn't Going to Drill to Stop Yellowstone from Erupting  

Let's cut to the chase: The purported NASA plan to "defuse" Yellowstone is pure science fiction. OK, now that we have that out of the way, let's get into the details of the numerous articles that have jumped all over what might best be termed a "thought experiment" by scientists at NASA. Yellowstone, the massive caldera in the middle of North America, is definitely a volcanic threat. Is it a high volcanic threat? Not as much as other, much more active volcanoes in the United States.

Tiny Bat Shrugs Off Venom Of Deadly Scorpion  

Pallid bats (Antrozous pallidus) are quirky little creatures, the sole species in their genus. Their long ears, which can equal half their body length, make them look quintessentially batty, but unlike most of their night hunting relatives, they prefer to tackle ground-dwelling dinners—a strategy called "gleaning." Pallid bats glean as much as half their body weight in prey every night, and their diet includes a wide range of crunchy little critters, including crickets, praying mantis, ...

The Myth of The 30 IQ Point "Communication Range"  

Earlier this week I tweeted a link to a Quora post which, I felt, was rather silly. The post was a response to the question "Are people with very high IQs generally happy?" and it answered in the negative: Let's say high IQ is a blessing which comes with a terrible price. And each and every person with reading east from 135 has paid that price. HIgh IQ persons usually have also extremely vivid and wide spectrum of emotions and emotional life, and when they are happy, they are in rapture, a...

Can a Wristband Conquer Speech Anxiety?  

For Americans, public speaking ranks higher on the list of fears than heights, blood, ghosts, clowns, flying, needles and…dying. Indeed, one in four Americans admits standing and delivering before a crowd of strangers is a dread inducing experience. On top of that, it's hard to get through life without encountering situations that force us to confront this fear in some form, which may explain why it's so pervasive. As such, there are countless remedies: picture the crowd naked, be y...

According to a survey from Yale University's Program on Climate Change Communication, 70 percent of Americans think global warming is happening, but only 40 percent believe it will harm them personally. But what if those same people who believe they are somehow immune from harm were told climate change is being blamed for the demise of an adorable, fuzzy, innocent creature? Oh, the feels.

FDA Raids Immunotherapy Clinic, Seizes Smallpox Vaccine  

The FDA has seized vials of smallpox vaccine from a California immunotherapy company, claiming they had been used for an unauthorized cancer treatment. StemImmune markets an unapproved treatment for cancer involving stem cells and a type of virus commonly used to inoculate against smallpox. The virus, vaccinia, is an attractive option because it's good at getting into cancerous cells and can be genetically tweaked to improve effectiveness. It's not easy to get, however, because it can cau

Why Sheep Calls Have That Unmistakable Vibrato  

Animals from sheep to fur seals share a curious acoustic trait: Their calls feature a vibrato-like trill. Vibrato is the small, quick oscillation in pitch that musicians use to accentuate certain notes. It makes a note sound a bit wobbly and helps catch our attention. It's found all over the animal kingdom, too — think the staccato "baaaaa's" of a goat. But animals' pulsating cries are far more than stylistic. A new study from University College Dublin says that these characteristic v...

No Filter: Ancient Whales Were Wolves of the Sea  

The biggest animals on the planet right now are baleen whales, which upped their size thanks to efficient filter-feeding. How they got that specialized system has long been a mystery, but a new study nixes some theories about it evolving out of ancient whales' dentition. Those earlier animals, say researchers, were bitey predators with sharp teeth made for tearing things up. Let's face it, whales are kind of whacky. Millions of years after the early tetrapod transition from the sea t...

How the Folsom Point Became an Archaeological Icon  

The Folsom spear point, which was excavated in 1927 near the small town of Folsom, New Mexico, is one of the most famous artifacts in North American archaeology, and for good reason: It was found in direct association with the bones of an extinct form of Ice Age bison. The Folsom point therefore demonstrated conclusively, and for the first time, that human beings were in North America during the last Ice Age—thousands of years earlier than previously thought. The Folsom discovery marked...

In September, however, the FDA did approve the drug, following a heated internal debate. This wasn't the end of the story, however. What followed was an unusual scientific controversy that played out in the peer-reviewed literature, discussed in a Retraction Watch post this week. Following the approval of eteplirsen, Ellis Unger and Robert Califf wrote a let

A Secret Confederate Submarine Was So Deadly, Even the Crew Wasn't Safe  

On Feb. 17, 1864, naval warfare was changed forever. That night aboard the U.S.S. Housatonic, master John H. Crosby of the Union Navy saw what he described as a porpoise sliding through the water on a direct course for his vessel just a few hundred feet away. Three years prior, President Abraham Lincoln had ordered a blockade of all major Confederate ports, and the Housatonic, a sloop-of-war with 12 large cannons, was stationed in South Carolina's Charleston Harbor to help the presid...

"R-Factor" Unlikely To Fix Science  

A new tool called the R-factor could help ensure that science is reproducible and valid, according to a preprint posted on biorxiv: Science with no fiction. The authors, led by Peter Grabitz, are so confident in their idea that they've created a company called Verum Analytics to promote it. But how useful is this new metric going to be? Not very useful, in my view. The R-factor (which stands for "reproducibility, reputation, responsibility, and robustness") strikes me as a flawed idea.
