China To Build New National Park 60% Bigger Than Yellowstone To Save The Siberian Tiger

China To Build New National Park 60% Bigger Than Yellowstone To Save The Siberian Tiger

Uncategorized
China is planning to build a new national park to save two endangered species the Siberian tiger and Amur leopard as it develops its US-style national park scheme. This new park will be located in northeast China in the Jilin and Heilongjiang provinces, on the border of Russia and North Korea. It will cover 14,600 square kilometers (5,600 square miles), making it 60 percent bigger than Yellowstone in the US. According to Xinhua, a comprehensive plan and pilot for the national park is expected to be carried out before 2020. In 1998, only six to nine wild Siberian tigers were estimated to be living in this area, rising to 27 by 2015 after conservation efforts that included a logging ban. However, the current reserve these tigers inhabit is not enough to let the species thrive. Approximate...
Top 10 Little-Known Facts About Wolves

Top 10 Little-Known Facts About Wolves

Animals
Arguably no other animal on earth has been as important to humans as the wolf. They were gods in the Norse mythologies and nursed Romulus and Remus, the founders of Rome. Most importantly, the wolf was the first animal to ever be domesticated by man, a process still shrouded in mystery that took place well over 10,000 years ago. They have been our dearest friends and direst enemies, and yet there is still so much we don’t know about them. Fact: Black wolves don’t occur naturally. A 2008 study at Stanford University found that the mutation responsible for black fur occurs only in dogs, so black wolves are the result of gray wolves breeding back with domestic canines. The mutation is a dominant trait, like dark hair in humans, and is passed down to the majority of offspring. ...

Biblical Researchers Hunting For Ark Of The Covenant Found Something More Gruesome Instead

I wont lie. My knowledge of The Bible is not great. But as far as I understand it, this is basically how it went down. About 3,000 years ago, God spoke to Moses via a burning bush and told him about some things. Later, while Moses was on a mountain (I think?), God came down to Moses and gave him the Ten Commandments, which were basically the rules for life. Then, Moses etched these into a stone and stored it in a gold chest. I think thats about right. Well, a group of experts in the US has been looking for that gold chest, which is better known as the Ark of the Covenant. More specifically, theyve been looking for the place that it was stored, known as the tabernacle. Some brief in-depth research tells me the tabernacle was where God lived when he came...

For Healthy Bird Development, Multiple Sperm Must Penetrate The Egg

In mammals, if more than one sperm enters the ovum (or egg), the results are lethal. But for bird eggs, penetration by several sperma process called polyspermy is actually quite normal. However, because only one sperm actually fertilizes the egg, researchers have long puzzled over what role the extra sperm play. According to new work published in Proceedings of the Royal Society B, multiple sperm are necessary for an embryo to develop normally. University of Sheffields Nicola Hemmings and colleagues wanted to see how female birds respond to sperm limitation and how this influences sperm transport in the oviduct (the tube through which eggs pass from the ovary). In their experiments, 16 female zebra finches (Taeniopygia guttata) produced clutches under both a control treatment (where pairs...

North America is in the midst of a drug overdose disaster. In British Columbia, Canada, where nearly 1,000 people died of overdose in 2016, officials have declared a public health emergency. While over-prescription of painkillers and contamination of the illegal opioid supply by fentanyl, a potent synthetic analgesic, are at the heart of the problem, opioid users are not the only ones at risk. Public health officials in BC are warning that fentanyl has been detected in many drugs circulating on the illicit market, including crack cocaine. The possibility of opioid overdose is an unusual new threat for people who use crack, which is a stimulant. Its consumption, either through smoking or injection, is not necessarily deadly.

Plants Can Actually Take Care Of Their Offspring – Here’s How

Uncategorized
Plants may not travel around as animals do, but they have evolved many strategies that allow them to cope and make the most of the environment they live in. Examples can be found everywhere. For instance, succulence is the special characteristic that cacti have to store water and then use it as a reserve in their dry habitats. And there are plants that produce seeds that are dispersed by wind, allowing them to travel farther than they could possibly have gone otherwise. What is not yet quite accepted is that plants can also take care of their “children,” or seedlings. This is partly because it is well known that plants do not have a nervous system and therefore they don’t have a “will” to protect their descendants. But, in fact, they do have mechanisms for offspring

This Invention Takes Camping To A Whole New Level

Camping sounds great in theory, but it can be kind of a mess in practice. The ground at the campsite might be too hard, there’s the constant barrage of insects to worrry about, and if it rains then you may as well forget the whole thing.

But when British wildlife photographer David Slater took the photo in 2011, there was no way he could have foreseen why the image would eventually be splashed across every news outlet from the United States to Russia.

Humanity, in plenty of ways, has had a profoundly negative impact on wildlife. From throwing them into volcanoes to overzealously feeding them when we shouldnt, its not surprising that animals sometimes decide that theyve had enough, and fight back. Big game hunter Theunis Botha reportedly learned this lesson the hard way. Stalking around the Zimbabwean village of Gwai, his colleagues stumbled across a breeding herd of elephants. Spotting the threat, the elephants then charged at the group, and Botha fired off a shot or two. Ambushing him from the side, one of the elephants charged towards him, and lifted him up in the air with her trunk. Another hunter shot the elephant, hoping that it would drop Botha and flee. The shot proved to be fatal, however a...

Fear May Be Able To Cause Animal Extinctions

Fear May Be Able To Cause Animal Extinctions

Uncategorized
There are many reasons why a species might go extinct, but it turns out that even just the fear of a predatormay be sufficient to cause populations of prey to go extinct. The research hinges on a curious observation within population biology. It is well understood thatover-population of a species can inhibit the animals, as individuals compete for scarcer and scarcer resources (such as food or mates), which results in a drop totheir reproductive success and survival. From this, you might therefore assume that in smaller populations, where there is an abundance of food and other resources, the opposite would hold true and that populations would quickly rebound from decline. Strangely, this is frequently not the case often to the dismay of conservationis...

Twenty years ago, biologists made the astonishing discovery that the malaria parasite, then killing almost a million people a year, had genes previously considered unique to plants. The announcement generated excitement from the hopethat herbicides might be redeployed to fight this scourge. Instead, it seems, the benefits may go the other way, with existing malaria drugs offering potential as novel herbicides. Apicomplexa parasites, malaria included, share the shikimate pathway and subunits called chloroplasts with plants, but not animals. Consequently, molecules that interfere with this pathway might be harmless to humans while controlling the parasites. Research on using herbicides has been done, but has now largely been abandoned with the discovery ...

To human researchers, sea ice may be a rickety death trap, but to polar bears, it's a little like a cross between a superhighway, a forest, and an old memory-foam mattress. It's the surface over which they travel, where they hunt, and occasionally, where they mate.

This revelation may completely change how we look at rainforests, what we consider to be wild environments, and when humans started to move away from hunting and to beginsettling. New research revealsthat humans have probably been managing rainforests for at least 45,000 years, far earlier than many ever considered. Published in Nature Plants, the study suggests that right across the tropics, people began burning and clearing sections of forest, in order to encourage the growthof desirable plants and attract animals to hunt. This not only alters how we think of rainforests, but also at what point our ancestors shifted f...

Malory Towers by Enid Blyton View this image › Perhaps the most iconic of all boarding school stories, we grew up with Darrell and friends as they competed in hockey matches, crept out of their dormitories for midnight feasts by the rock pool and played tricks on the poor French mesdemoiselles. Oh, how we longed to be one of the gang with a trunk of our very own to pack before term started. We might have circled boarding schools in the Yellow Pages once or twice too, in an effort to drop hints to our parents. 2. Judy Blume Books

Mammal Forerunner Survived Mass Extinction By Mating Early And Dying Young

Mammal Forerunner Survived Mass Extinction By Mating Early And Dying Young

Uncategorized
Ancient mammal relatives called therapsids survived Earths greatest mass extinction 252 million years ago to become some of the most successful animals in the Early Triassic. Now, researchers studying the bones of these mammal forerunners have discovered their survival strategy: live fast, die young. The findings are published in Scientific Reports this week. The planet lost over 80 percent of all marine species and 70 percent of all terrestrial species when a series of volcanoes erupted at the end of the Permian, ejecting so much carbon into the atmosphere, Earths climate was altered. Some animals, however, thrived in the aftermath of the Permo-Triassic Mass Extinction. The therapsid Lystrosaurus, for example, dominated Early Triassic ecosystems worldwide for millions of y...

When I think of the third grade, I think of a classroom. Chairs, desks ... a blackboard, of course. A backpack, pencils, paper. John's in the third grade too, and he's got all that plus a bunch of classmates, what seems to be a pretty nice teacher, and access to his natural world. All GIFs from UNICEF/YouTube. But there's one school supply that's missing: water. "We can't get enough water at school," John says in a new video from UNICEF. "I feel like I have more energy when there is water." Why does John lack access to the most basic of human needs? His country, Vanuatu, is facing a bad water shortage. Vanuatu normally gets plenty of water from rainfall, but this year a big El Nio warm ocean waters than can affect global weather meant that July, August, and...

Late in the day on Monday, President Donald Trump signed legislation that once again makes it legalfor hunters to target predator animals in Alaskas national wildlife refuges.

Get a cage, you two. Two furry bunnies gave the world an eyeful when they got frisky on a local news desk during a live Easter-themed segment. The bushy-tailed booty call took place on NBC affiliate WBIR in Knoxville, Tenn. During the segment, three anchors watched in increasing horror and amusement as the bunnies did their thing on live television. When the camera quickly cut away, the anchors took their chance to make good-natured jokes about the situation. But after producers cut back to the news desk, only one bunny was left on screen.

7 Reasons Why Introverts Make The Best Forever Friends

Introverts make some of the best friends a person could ever hope to have. Yes, it's true that introversion can make someone a little more difficultto get to know at first. Introverts take longer to open up, and some seriously dislike going out every night of the week. But, once you've gotten to know and become close to an introvert, you'll realize your squad wouldn't be complete without them. Here are seven reasons why introverts truly make the best forever friends. 1. They Know How To Read A Situation Introverts are always observing the world around them. This comes in handy when you need help decoding a situation or interpreting what someone said they'll always be there to lend an outsider's perspective on the situation. 2. They Are Expert Listeners Pexels Notoriously, introverts pre...

The ubiquity of smartphones and technology often getsthe blame for the apparent lack of sleep we getnowadays. However,new research suggests that perhaps we should be holding ourancestors a little more accountablefor those sleepless nights. It is thought that the differences in when some people go to bed and others wake up could be a throwback to when our ancestors were sleeping in the bush, exposed to predators and other rival groups of humans as soon as the Sun went down. Thelatest study, published in the Proceedings of the Royals Society B, suggests that this variation in sleeping patterns ensuresthat there is always at least one person awake whensome are at their most vulnerable (such as when asleep).

How Two Brothers Survived A Tsunami And Became Millionaires

There is perhaps nothing more resilient than the human spirit. We can lose everything that we hold dear, and still strive forward in the world. No matter how bad things may seem today, tomorrow is just around the corner. Those who have endured tragedy understand this notion better than anyone. On December 26, 2004, a 9.1 magnitude earthquake occurred under the Indian Ocean and generated a massive tsunami. Ultimately, it claimed more than 230,000 lives across 14 different countries. The 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami was one of the worst natural disasters in recorded history. Among those lost were the parents of Rob, Paul, Matty and Rosie Forkan. Originally from the United Kingdom, the Forkan family was vacationing in Sri Lanka for the holidays when the tsunami crashed into t

Food is something we all have a connection with and not just because it keeps us alive. Beyond the whole survival thing, food has a deeper meaning to most of us beyond chew, swallow, repeat. It plays a key role in many special occasions, from birthdays to weddings to funerals to political and religious traditions. It serves as a centerpiece, gathering loved ones and strangers around it to feel comfort, energy, and security. No matter whats going on around you, a good meal has the power to make everything feel OK, at least while it's being consumed.

Late Sleepers Might Be Better Suited To Mars Missions

Uncategorized
A study of the natural circadian rhythm, or daily cycle, of animals on Earth has yielded an interesting, separate conclusion, namely about how humans might cope with the shorter days on Mars. According to the researchers, and a piece in The Telegraph, the issue comes down to the Martian day being 37 minutes longer than Earths day. For this reason, they say that people who sleep longer may be more suited to life on the Red Planet than early risers. The paper is published in the Proceedings of National Academy of Sciences, although it should be noted the link to Mars was made separately. In a statement, Professor Andrew Loudon from the University of Manchester, one of the coauthors on the paper, said:The rotation speed of Mars may be within the limits of some peoples internal...

Romeo became a famous figure in Juneau, Alaska for being a rare type of wolf who enjoyed playing with local dogs in the winter. They actually have their own tribute for Romeo in Juneau. How did it all come about? It was 2003 and a photographer saw this wild wolf from the back deck of his house. Nick Jans figured it would be a one time sighting, but over the following months, the wolf kept hanging around. It then got to the point where the wolf began playing with one of Jans dogs. This photo above was when the two animals first met after Jans dog Juliet got loose. She stood right up, nose to nose with the wolf as Jan captured the photo, no doubt extremely nervous. “We were keeping our dog under control and she just slipped out from under my fingers, which were hooked around h...

One of the worst aspects of anxiety is the ability to take something seemingly innocuous and make it exceedingly more complex and fear-inducing than at all reasonable. Talking to strangers or calling to set up appointments can lead to sweating, heart palpitations and nausea. Leaving the house? An opportunity to get lost in a downward spiral of fearful thinking. What if you get locked out? What if you run into someone you know and he invites you to attend a social engagement? What if you get lost? Maybe it’s better to just stay at home… Going out to dinner allows for the chance to choke in public (or worse, go into anaphylaxis if you suffer food allergies).
