Now the images taken during its 17 hour mission have revealed something interesting. The asteroid, just over half a mile in diameter, has rocks like carbonaceous chondrite meteorites but there seems to be no dust, like is on the moon. The rocks are instead "bright, with smooth faces and sharp edges, or dark, with a cauliflower-like, crumbly surface."
Scientific American Blogs Reminded People They Still Exist - By Scaremongering Vegetables And Promoting Supplements
Scientific American Blogs was the brainchild of blogging wunderkind Bora Zivkovic, who left Scienceblogs for PLOS, to build a blog network for them, and then when Scientific American wanted to retry blogging they recruited him.
Fads always start with a kernel of scientific truth, as happened with acai berries, chocolate, red wine, and whatever probiotic or yogurt is being for the microbiome sold this week. Omega 3 is a type of fat and small amounts are essential for good health and can be found in the food that we eat.
But a systematic review commissioned by the World Health Organization and published today in the British Medical Journal finds that omega 3 supplements offer no benefit.
Even the poorest people can afford food, what were once booms and busts of famine and plenty have now leveled off, poverty declines are ahead of U.N. goals, and even centralized energy in developing countries, which could help a billion people, is attainable if western states stop telling poor nations they can only get World Bank help if it's not coal, natural gas, or nuclear.
And we can prevent cancer for the first time.
Randy Constant, The Farmer Behind The Largest Known Organic Fraud in U.S. History, Has Committed Suicide
Though the stereotype of Australian men is the tough, beer-drinking Alpha - they popularized running face-first while rappelling down cliffs among armies across the world - but they must live pretty health lives because they lead the world in longevity.
Australian men, on average, live to 74.1. And women are doing well also. Only Switzerland surpasses the land down under for females.
Lagged Cohort Life Expectancy
However, we do have relatively thick enamel on our teeth, which can get ruined over time without proper care.
Crocodiles don't even have that. They have thin tooth enamel, the opposite of humans and other hard-biting species, as their plant-eating ancestors did. But unlike humans, when their teeth go bad, they seem to just grow new ones.

Fake versions of foods are all the rage but egg farmers who survived the Vegg ("nutritional yeast flakes, Sodium alginate, Kala Namak, beta-carotene") can't rest easy just yet. Joining any number of eggless egg substitute concoctions, Just Egg is rolling out in 2,100 Kroger stores nationwide.
Unlike most others, which are just used as a leavening agent or a binder so egg is substituted by xantham gum or tofu or some other chemical and isn't really for cooking, three tablespoons of Just Egg is touted to be just like a regular egg and can be used for an omelet or scramble.
So if you don't want to eat liquid chicken, you can eat whatever this is instead.
Happy Family Organics Lobbyists Get A Win - More Organic Food For Poor People On WIC, At The Same High Cost
The company also claims it is making packaging commitments that "support a more circular economy" but the beginning of that circle need to be the price poor people pay, not fuzzy-wuzzy marketing claims about whatever "sustainability" is pretending to be this week.
About 100 people actually did walk up the volcano, with the kids (naturally) featured prominently.
Every Year There Are Amazon Wildfires - NOT An All Time Record - More In 2016 And Far More 2005 - Doesn't Derail Paris Agreement
Short summary: we have had wild fires for many years now in the Amazon, even in the tropical rainforest - mainly started by humans for forest clearing and ranching. It is not enough to impact significantly on the Paris agreement pledges yet though it is important in the long term if this continues for decades.
The ranchers use fire for forest clearing, "slash and burn agriculture" as it is called. That is because it is much easier to convert forest into grassland by burning it than to do it by felling the trees. Once it is cut, the way they manage the pastures is to reburn them every few years to clear out the brush and to get the grass to resprout.
In a new study, genetic, isotopic and skeletal analysis of three human skeletons dating to 415-560 AD excavated from the Hermanov vinograd archaeological site in Osijek Croatia revealed that all were males between 12 and 16 years of age at death and that they all suffered from malnutrition.
They are not obviously of different social status, but genetic analysis found that the two with cranial modifications exhibited very distinct ancestries, one from the Near East and the other from East Asia.
Mexico is not the only place where this is a problem. People trying to avoid immigration laws face peril around the world, no matter what country they visit but America provides the largest undefended borders in the world so the problem is just more easily seen here.
Like that trace levels of air pollution cause psychiatric disorders.
Game reviewers at the time were as perplexed by that but to the science community the rationale made perfect sense. Environmental groups that want to cull humanity want the culling to be among regard as less fit, even if they don't admit it. By using dollar bills they would be targeting people who don't have credit cards. The poor, not organic food shoppers that listen to NPR. So this modern form of eugenicists and social Darwinists could eliminate non-elites and slap consumerism.
Meanwhile, governments that want more taxes but don't want to risk a vote can simply put a tax on certain foods.
That may be a statistical blip exploited by opponents the same way agenda-driven epidemiologists create rows of diseases and columns of foods and chemicals to create the appearance of a harmful link, it may be that patients suffered quietly because they couldn't afford it.
