There is one huge reason not to take it seriously, if you accept chemistry, biology, or toxicology: The senior author is from the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences, which for the last decade has competed with the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) and Ramazinni Institute (Picchiatello) for how best to erode confidence in science and health among the public, by using statistics to undermine scientists.
The director leads a division of approximately 75 people, including scientists, engineers, and administrative professionals who help plan and manage NASA's Earth Science Program and is responsible for the implementation of ESD's annual budget of approximately $1.9 billion.
Duties include presenting the ESD program to NASA senior management, the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) and other Executive Office stakeholders, and Congress.
While you won't see a lot of fruit fly studies done by amateurs, in other fields citizen science provides a lot of data, and a new paper argues they should be treated as co-authors in journal articles.
Your 'Epstein Didn't Kill Himself' Friend - Conspiracy Believers Are Often Not Crackpots About Everything
As of today, CDC reports 16 illnesses, with the most recent illness onset date on November 15, 2019.
The questions were rather specific to GMOs so I stuck to that, but of course I write about a lot more than agriculture while the rest of Science 2.0 writes about virtually every area of science.
The 5 questions I answered below and I added some more thoughts for this article:
1. Why did you create Science 2.0?
2. Why did you choose to write about GMOs?
3. What impact do you think the anti-GMO activist have on the scientific community?
Why the difference? That is a mystery, like much of the disease. Since the underlying mechanisms are unknown there is no real treatment or cure, but a new study found that in banana flies and C. elegans worms with the equivalent of the syndrome that the dietary supplement nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD+) prolonged life and reduced age-related diseases like cancer.
But while it was once limited to something like Facebook live, with Restream we can go out to YouTube Live, Mixer, and Twitch, all at once.(2)
Arctic Albedo Has No Global Effect - Junk Science Reason In Extinction Rebellion Handbook For Climate Spiralling Out Of Control
You’ll often hear about the “Ice albedo effect” as a supposed tipping point that the IPCC is ignoring. The idea is that as the Arctic ice melts, it absorbs more heat from the sun, and so warms the planet. What they ignore is that as the planet warms there are also more clouds, especially in tropical regions. You need to look at the planet as a whole, and it is actually a cooling rather than a warming effect, helping to offset some of the global warming.
The philospher Rupert Read, frequently the spokesperson for the Extinction Rebellion makes this as one of his two main points when he argues tht the climate will change much more rapidly than the IPCC’s study found in its review of the climate change literature.
Is it a dog or a wolf? It was a male and radiocarbon dating gave the age range but DNA sequencing has been unable to determine the species.
Here is another amazing find from the Belaya Gora site!
Radiocarbon dating says it 18,000 years old.
In late November 1999, a TV producer called me about an alarming report that 44,000 to 98,000 Americans were being killed each year by preventable errors in hospitals and another 1 million were being injured.
Could that be true? Based on my research, I replied, the estimate seemed low.
This is in response to a “Nature comment” Climate tipping points — too risky to bet against which is scaring people. This is a little different from a normal Nature paper - it's a sort of scientific political comment. It argues and persuades rather as debaters do in politics.
Crinoids are marine animals in the class Crinoidea. They are echinoderms related to starfish, sea urchins, sea cucumbers and brittle stars. Adult crinoids have a mouth located on the upper surface surrounded by feeding arms. These have feathery pinnules and are spread wide to gather planktonic particles from the water.
This week you have likely been deluged with fast-talking influencers on television talking about how to stick to your diet this holiday season. They don't know what they are talking about, next week the same group of thin, hurried, fast-talking, overconfident people will be making gift recommendations.
Calories are a marathon, not a one-day spring. If you are fat, binging for one day didn't cause it, it is the chronic overeating that did. I lived in Manhattan, with some of the best Italian food on earth. Somehow I gained 10 pounds? There was no mystery, it was eating stromboli every day and pretending it was a treat rather than a lifestyle.
Maybe they just don't want scientific chemicals. Maybe they want the organic kind that are healthier, according to, well, organic industry trade groups and journalists at the Mother Jones.
So you trudge off to Whole Foods or a store you read about on a Facebook page and buy the stuff on your menu. I hate to alarm you but it all has chemicals that are known carcinogens. That's right, they cause cancer.
We are headed for the next round of climate pledges in 2020. So, what do we need to do to stay within 1.5 C? This is based mainly on the new UN Emissions Gap Report 2019

He's qualified, but most FDA heads have been(1). He also understands politics, and that is always part of FDA because a Commissioner has to let career scientists do their jobs while navigating demands from both the White House and Congress, which can often be politically motivated. And he s a lung cancer doctor, so he understands better than most what really causes lung cancer (smoking) and what is hype promoted by pharmaceutical companies and other groups who have tremendous influence inside organizations like the American Medical Association.
If you want to get a fresh turkey for Thanksgiving, you don't need to spend $120 for something that calls itself Heritage, you can honor your actual heritage and go get one the way your ancestors did. With a bow and arrow.
Since that time, a lot of has improved about archery. Though guns haven't changed much in the last 100 years, archery has gone through a technological renaissance. Entire science conference presentations are devoted to it, and that happened this weekend at the annual meeting of the APS Division of Fluid Dynamics in Seattle.
