The interstellar medium is a thin gruel of gas and dust that occasionally clumps together, eventuating in star formation. Magnetic fields mystically permeate the interstellar medium and shape the cosmological future.
Mental health apps are designed to help treat stress, anxiety, and depression. They work so well that almost everyone stops using them shortly after trying them out.
Poor African fishermen are destroying their habitat using free nets from do-gooders.
Some women have a fine sense of smell without the physiological means for olfaction.
Cells are not perfectionists. When DNA is damaged, cells repair sufficiently to keep their machinery working. Such workmanship is also found in wounds, where tissues are mended well enough to recover functionality, but not blemish free.
Physicists universally agree that existence emergently appears from the quantum level up. Now, quantum physicists have shown that objectivity is an illusion, thereby experimentally proving showtivity, an aspect of Ishi Nobu’s teachings.
Land plants descended from an alga that learned a critical trick from a friend.
A mitochondrion is the power plant for eukaryotic cells, as well as performing many other functions. It is the only organelle that retains its own genome and the machinery for self-maintenance. To meet cellular needs, a mitochondrion has an extensive communication network, both within itself and with the rest of the cell.
Plants compete for sunlight and soil resources. But they also cooperate for the good of the community to which they belong.
More evidence that the Big Bang hypothesis is blown.
The English term germ emerged from the French germe in the 1640s, which evolved from germen in Latin, meaning a biological genesis, as with seeds and buds. A germ as a “seed of a disease” was planted in English in 1796; that of harmful microbe in 1871. A century and a half later, germs are found winning against those who would label them as such.
The mind is a pattern processor. The mental ability to discriminate is based upon contrast. As such, a reference pattern affords finer acuity.
Venice, Italy is considered the most beautiful city in the world. It is fast becoming a victim of the climate debacle.
The overall geometrical shape of the cosmos is a primary attribute indicating its overarching dynamics. The universe has long been presumed flat: existence ultimately planar owing to a sweet-spot matter density that altogether avoided curvature. Einstein’s general relativity equations predicated a slightly open universe, with external expansion gradually slowed by gravity. Recent measurements suggest instead a positive cosmic curvature which blows apart extant cosmological models.
Parrots are forward-thinking animals. As such, they waste a lot of food.
Quantum theorists look to decipher meaning from their equations as if pondering mystical runes. They do so blithely, from a perspective divorced from the mechanics of actualization.
Southeastern Australia is ablaze with “catastrophic” wildfires after years of parching. The national government denies that global climate change has anything to do with the fires, calling those who think otherwise “raving lunatics.”
Climate scientists have consistently underestimated climate change and continue to do so.
There have been various theories as to why Neanderthals went extinct. A new theory injects disease as a downer.
Common folklore has houseplants able to freshen and oxygenate the air. Alas, not so much.
Carbon emissions continue to rise despite the cry of a “climate emergency.” Consumers are doing their part to drive self-extinction in their SUVs.
There is no federal oversight of tap water in Canada, nor do most provinces monitor drinking water quality. So Canadians drink poisoned water.
America has grown grotesquely dysfunctional; a trend long in the tooth.
For the umpteenth time, a group of scientists feeling a “moral obligation” have issued a warning to the world’s political establishment of “a climate emergency.”
A native of northeast Africa, the vulturine guineafowl is the largest bird in its genus. Taxonomically, this bird is more dinosaur than guineafowl. But its sociality is post-modern.
