Hurricane gusts reaching 150 miles per hour, damaged hundreds of houses and buildings, some areas remained without electricity.Currently, weather forecasts, tropical cyclone shifted to Taiwan, which declared a storm warning, and by Friday he Read more [...]
In order for the information was passed to the brain, nervous tissue cells - neurons - to form bonds, so-called synapses. But, as it turned out, in the wild they do not need everything. Scientists at Yale (Yale University) discovered that nerve receptors in the antennae of flies can communicate with each other without any synaptic connection.
The possibility of the existence of the so-called efapticheskih ties predicted Rospar Jean-Pierre (Jean-Pierre Rospars), entomologist from the French National Centre for Agricultural Research. It happened in 2004. Now, researchers working under the direction Read more [...]
French scientists have found the answer to the question of what attracts a woman a man, when he sees it for the first time. Scientists have already been proven that people choose one another at the genetic level. A new study shows the principle on which men choose their partner. Looking closely to the woman, the man primarily guided by her appearance. The females believe that a man can attract a slender figure, breast size and leg length. But in reality it is not. The man initially drew attention to the girl's face and chooses his girlfriend on her similarity. But not with the mother, Read more [...]

"Surviving on high altitude challenge our concept of limits of the biosphere," - so says David Smith of the project "Micro-organisms in the stratosphere" Kennedy Space Center. The scientist and his team are planning to establish the boundary of the biosphere by sampling Observatory "Batchelor" in central Oregon.
The first found alive oragnizmami in the stratosphere were bacteria. The bacterial form of life is possible in such harsh conditions of existence through the formation of a protective shell - spores. Only thanks to her bacteria can live at? 56? C in the Read more [...]

A group of scientists from the U.S. and China, with the help of computer simulations find an answer to an old question, what does is the core of the Earth.As shown by simulations, the Earth's core contains mostly carbon in an amount of 0.1-0.8%, as the largest reservoir of carbon on the planet. These are the information provided by the U.S. researchers from the University of California at Davis, and specialists from the Chinese Academy of Sciences. The study appears in the current issue of the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences."We were known density of the nucleus, and Read more [...]
Clearly, all our thoughts and feelings are accompanied by changes in neuronal activity, but this kind of change? As occurs, for example, switching between two possible answers to the question "to drink or not to drink?" Now we have the data in hand, allowing to present some of the neurons that accompanies the decision: researchers from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (USA) was able to see, thabout

on 3 August. Greenland glaciers can restore its thickness in the coming decade, because their melting cycles, the study says, Danish scientists published in the journal Science.
In late July, the specialists of the National U.S. space Agency (NASA) with reference to satellite data reported that the melting covered 97% of the Greenland ice sheet, whereas the average for the last 30 years the area of the melting of the total area of the glacier does not exceed 50%. The glacier currently covers about 80% of Greenland and contains about one fifth of the world's supply of ice. According to scientists, Read more [...]
In the Netherlands, learn to create open microprism that can be used as individual "prison" of the studied living cells.Most cell research is done "on the plane", although this is far from the natural behavior of the cells, which require sufficient space for themselves in all three dimensions. This opportunity is open to the pyramids, created by the Institute of Nanotechnology at the University of Twente (Netherlands).The report on the study published in the journal Small.Chondrocyte cell, caught in the open microprism began to talk with the neighbors.

Time moves inexorably forward. It should scroll film's back - and you immediately suspected something was wrong. But from the point of view of a single, isolated particle over time looks the same in any direction. That, at least, it seems at first glance. For example, a film of the scattering of two particles will look reasonable, even if the scroll backwards - a concept known as the symmetry of time reversal. Now the experiment authoritative scientific collaboration (it full-time or part-time participation in the simultaneous) BaBar, working with the accelerator SLAC, found new, though Read more [...]
