We discovered a subtle genetic imbalance that can lead to aging

Scientists have discovered an extremely subtle twist in the genetics of aging cells that appears to make them less and less functional over time. RResearchers from Northwestern University revealed animals like mice, rats, killifish, and even humans show a progressive imbalance of long and short genes in virtually every cell in their bodies as they …

Virginia wildlife rehabilitators say good intentions can lead to bad outcomes for animals in distress – Reuters

At the Blue Ridge Wildlife Center in Boyce, Virginia, a recent conference focused on the question titled “Best Intentions Gone Wrong.” The photo of two cottontail rabbits shows the obvious difference when wildlife is cared for by discoverers who mean well but don’t contact a rehabilitator right away, compared to those who receive immediate care …

Ocean mapping by Saildrones could lead to better forecasts of storm surges

Ocean mapping by Saildrones could lead to better forecasts of storm surges

Saildrones are autonomous vehicles working in the ocean off the coast of Florida. They help us understand climate change, hurricanes and forecasts. Much of the destruction caused by hurricanes comes from storm surge, but it’s hard to predict. come up with better information about the ocean floor. Hurricane winds aren’t the only thing that influences …
