  1. [iridescent colour production in hairs of blind golden moles (Chrysochloridae) Using microspectrophotometry, electron microcopy and optical modeling, the researchers also found the moles’ hair is flat like a pancake, increasing the amount of surface area and light reflected. “The color just might be an incidental byproduct,” Shawkey says. “These moles have evolved structures that have two distinct properties: color and wear-resistance. This could give usinspiration for developing new multifunctional materials. Who knows, maybe ahair-care company could apply these findings to make human hair iridescent!”] http://rsbl.royalsocietypublishing.org/content/early/2012/01/20/rsbl.2011.1168.full

    http://www.physorg.com/news/2012-01-supersoldier-ants-lab-reactivating-ancestral.html The international team of scientists, led by Dr Ehab Abouheif of the Department of Biology at McGill University in Montreal, Canada, looked at the genomes of two ant species that produce supersoldiers. They identified the genetics behind the supersoldier caste and were able to activate the genes by treating ant larvae with methoprene, a growth hormone. As expected, the ant larvae became supersoldiers. They then treated in the same way larvae of Pheidole morrisi, an ant species which lives in New York and that does not normally produce supersoldiers, but which lead author, Dr Abouheif, had previously noted produced large-headed ants resembling supersoldiers on rare occasions. The treated larvae grew to become large headed and jawed ants resembling supersoldiers. The same effect was produced in two other Pheilode species, which are not known to produce supersoldiers. Dr Abouheif and colleagues report, in their paper published in the journal Science, that ant larvae normally develop into soldiers or workers depending on the levels of the "juvenile hormone": if levels are high the ants become soldiers, while if they are low they become the smaller worker ants. In the species that produce supersoldiers there is a second high threshold of the juvenile hormone, above which the larvae develop into the larger supersoldiers. The growth hormone methoprene, used in the experiments, mimics the effects of juvenile hormone. The results of the experiments suggest that even those species that do not produce supersoldiers must have been able to do so in the distant past, some 35 to 60 million years ago, and that they still retain the genetic information for supersoldier production that can be reactivated under certain environmental or nutritional states. The researchers say that retaining the ancestral genetic tools could be important for the evolution of new physical traits. Supersoldier ants occur naturally in species found in Mexico and the south-west of the USA. They were also known in ancestral species, and Abouheif and the team suggest the common ancestor of the entire Pheidole genus had the ability to produce supersoldiers.

They are characterized by smooth, orange or red bark and stiff, twisting branches. There are 106 species of manzanita, 95 of which are found in the Mediterranean climate and colder mountainous regions of California, ranging from ground-hugging coastal and mountain species to small trees up to 20 feet (6m) tall. Manzanitas bloom in the winter to early spring and carry berries in spring and summer.[1] The berries and flowers of most species are edible.] n australia

A potential mechanism that averts cancer is an "over-crowding" gene, p16, which prevents cell division once a group of cells reaches a certain size. Most mammals, including naked mole rats, have a gene called p27 which does a similar task, but prevents cellular reproduction at a much later point than p16 does. The combination of p16 and p27 in naked mole rats cells is a double barrier to cell proliferation.[17] Hypersensitivity to contact inhibition may be the reason for the cancer resistance of the naked mole rat.[18]]] http://www.slate.com/articles/health_and_science/the_mouse_trap/2011/11/naked_mole_rats_can_they_help_us_cure_cancer_.html 9999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999 My theory is theres alot of carbon dixode exhales in a tunnel and not nitrogen gas, http://wiki.answers.com/Q/Why_deep_diver_take_oxygen_mixed_with_helium_instead_of_pure_oxygen_while_going_deep_in_sea_for_respiration To breathe underwater a diver must be supplied air at a pressure equal to that of the water surrounding the diver. However there is an upper limit of oxygen pressure above which the oxygen becomes biochemically toxic. Therefore, it is necessary to include something to dilute the oxygen in a diver's breathing gas. To satisfy normal breathing requirements at high pressures, it is necessary to supply between 0.2 and 1.5 atmospheres of oxygen with the rest of the balance made up by a non-toxic diluent (such as nitrogen). There has to be another gas in that tank(s). It will be nitrogen and maybe even helium, depending on the dive.

Botanists gathered material from each of 341 traditional medicinal plant species, dried the material and processed it in an industrial grinder. Two samples of plant material were taken from each species. One sample was submerged in 96 percent ethanol for seven days, and the other in boiling distilled water for one day—both traditional preparations of plant extracts. The solvents were evaporated to complete dryness and a concentration of each extract was removed for testing. Plant extracts were then diluted to various concentrations in vials. Brine shrimp (Artemia sp.), small invertebrates that dwell in sea water and other saline ecosystems, are frequently used in laboratory studies to evaluate toxicity values as a measure of median lethal concentration values, or LC50, as they offer a simple, quick and cost-effective way to test plant extracts. Brine shrimp larvae were submerged in 501 total vials of aqueous and ethanolic plant extract solutions, and scientists recorded their rates of mortality after 24 hours. ] ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- not a mimes human hatred http://boards.straightdope.com/sdmb/archive/index.php/t-266303.html http://www.ihatemimes.com/

By replacing the nuclei of egg cells from an elephant with those taken from the mammoth's marrow cells, embryos with mammoth DNA can be produced, Kyodo said, citing the researchers. The scientists will then plant the embryos into elephant wombs for delivery, as the two species are close relatives, the report said. Securing nuclei with an undamaged gene is essential for the nucleus transplantation technique, it said. For scientists involved in the research since the late 1990s, finding nuclei with undamaged mammoth genes has been a challenge. Mammoths became extinct about 10,000 years ago. But the discovery in August of the well-preserved thigh bone in Siberia has increased the chances of a successful cloning. Global warming has thawed ground in eastern Russia that is usually almost permanently frozen, leading to the discoveries of a number of frozen mammoths, the report said. http://www.aapsj.org/view.asp?art=aapsj060322\\ [Recently, a mechanism proposed by Timasheff et al3 has been widely accepted by other researchers. In Timasheff’s mechanism, Timasheff explains protein stabilization phenomena in aqueous solutions by small molecular weight stabilizers, such as sodium lactate.3 A stabilizer favors the folded state of the protein when the folded and unfolded forms of the protein coexist in an equilibrium solution. In the presence of a stabilizer, less free energy for the folded native protein increases because there are less exposed surface areas than for the unfolded denatured protein; thus, the unfolded protein exists in the more thermodynamically unfavorable state. During freezing, the water surrounding a protein would probably be drawn off into an ice crystal matrix and the presumed hydration shell would be disrupted, hence, the same hydration environment as in solution would no longer exist. However, many3 have argued that freezing does not necessarily invalidate the Timasheff mechanism, since a significant fraction of water remains unfrozen in protein formulations. Our hypothesis was that PEGs could interact with proteins in multiple ways during cryoprotection. Higher molecular weight PEGs protected LDH better than lower molecular weight PEGs in solution and during freeze-thawing.1 A likely explanation for this finding is increased affinity for binding in the higher molecular weight molecules. LDH in its native form is an oligomeric protein.4 An essential requirement for LDH cryoprotection by PEGs is that the stabilizers should favor the association of the tetramer.] Called PEGS solution.
  11. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/A_Clockwork_Orange_%28film%29 [A Clockwork Orange is a 1971 film adaptation of Anthony Burgess's 1962 novel of the same name. It was written, directed and produced by Stanley Kubrick. It features disturbing, violent images, facilitating its social commentary on psychiatry, youth gangs, and other social, political, and economic subjects in a dystopian, future Britain. Alex (Malcolm McDowell), the main character, is a charismatic, psychopathic delinquent whose interests include classical music (especially Beethoven), rape, and what is termed 'ultra-violence'. He leads a small gang of thugs (Pete, Georgie, and Dim), whom he calls his droogs (from the Russian друг, "friend", "buddy"). The film chronicles the horrific crime spree of his gang, his capture, and attempted rehabilitation via controversial psychological conditioning. Alex narrates most of the film in Nadsat, a fractured adolescent slang comprising Slavic (especially Russian), English, and Cockney rhyming slang. A Clockwork Orange features a soundtrack comprising mostly classical music selections and Moog synthesizer compositions by Walter Carlos. The now-iconic poster of A Clockwork Orange was created by designer Bill Gold. Contents [hide]

  13. Swiss cannabis smokers will be allowed to grow four marijuana plants each (to stop them buying drugs illegally) Cannabis smokers in Switzerland will soon be allowed to grow up to four marijuana plants each at home to stop them buying drugs on the black market. Seems reasonable as Swiss is mountains and the only way too grow in winter or summer is 1400 watts lamps per 2 plants. So the electricity bill tells the swiss cops how much is being grown. Better be a female plant.
