After leaving its wildlife park home, a beach-going reptile tries to have a little fun, but succeeds only in frightening humans.
So far, there are five machines which carry 25 titles, including The Odyssey and The Wok Cookbook.
The coldest spot in the U.S. (average temperature 10.1 degrees) has warmed up this summer, as it has almost everywhere else.
Researchers say the areas round the vents have tubeworms, anemones, shrimp, and bacterial mats. In addition, there are low-temperature vents that the scientists say might be called ‘hydrocryo’, which means cold-water-emitting vents.
A library of all living things is a vast undertaking using the latest neural network software and harnessing the multitudes of amateurs as well as professionals. The Digital Automated Identification System (Daisy) will not only offer access into a gargantuan database, but will allow additions by anyone with an unknown organism and a camera-phone, thereby growing the system.
Richard Feynman couldn’t figure it out, try as he might. But now , two French scientists conclude that it’s all about waves. The article includes a link to the experiment videos.
In a weak moment, I let the college-aged son pick the entertainment. When he suggested an X-Files from our vast collection (thanks to a relative’s generosity, or else she needed to get them out of her house), I said, sure, why not.
