You'll notice there are only two of them this time, as I am now making sure everyone has added me before I share them.*     #teamelite  members - see nearer the end for instructions for the next stage!     #eliteinnercircle *I have had so many great     #teamelite  engagers that I need two whole circles - why are they     #teamelite  engagers, as opposed to normal engagers? These are the ones who have shared my shared circles - you have close to 1,400 circle sharers here for you to add across these three circles. You should add people in these circles, because they are active engagers and will brighten up your Google Plus experience. I'm not sure you could handle all that Google Plus engagement, so think twice before you do so!My     #teamelite  circles are extensively shared by the top circle sharers on Google Plus, so naturally, membership of     #teamelite  is very exclusive and there is a lot of demand to get in.To get in, and to ensure you stay in     #teamelite  you need to do the following:1.

Fragile bones of modern humans result from reduced physical activity

New research across thousands of years of human evolution shows that our skeletons have become much lighter and more fragile since the invention of agriculture - a result of our increasingly sedentary lifestyles as we shifted from foraging to farming.

Trophic Coherence

'... Identified by researchers led by the University of Warwick, Trophic Coherence’s identifiers argue that it demonstrates ecosystems are less random and more structured than had previously been thought. Trophic Coherence was found to be a universal, mathematical property in each and every ecosystem.

Dr. Samuel Johnson, from Warwick’s Mathematics Institute, explains: “Buildings require structural supports, such as the metal or timber frames around which they are then built. For the building to remain standing, though, these supports need to comply with the laws of mathematics and physics; if the roof is too heavy for the frame, the building collapses. The frames also need flexibility to adapt to conditions, if they are too rigid they become fragile and, for instance, unable to cope with difficult weather.

“The same is true of natural ecosystems; they need support and structure. Trophic Coherence seems to play a similar role in ecosystems as supporting frames of buildings — it is a structural property that helps ecosystems survive, and is common to all the ones we have analyzed. It provides them with essential support and structure.”

"Among the most vocal is David Jaques of the University of Buckingham and leader of the team that discovered the early encampment site—he has told the press that it's possible that artifacts yet to be discovered at the site could offer clues regarding the history of the area prior to the construction of Stonehenge, possibly offering new clues about the people involved in building the famous structure and their reasons for putting together such a massive and enduring structure.

Artifacts found thus far include charcoal dated to around 4000 BC and evidence of "feasting" (burnt flint, other tools and bones of an ancient cow known as aurochs) by people sitting around a fire. Jaques and other archeologists working the site believe the encampment represents a link between early hunter-gatherers that returned to Great Britain after the last Ice Age, and on up into the Neolithic—representing the time before and after Stonehenge was constructed. Jugues believes the early people would have been attracted to the site by the natural spring that flowed through and claims that building the tunnel would wreck the site, preventing proper study of other artifacts that have not yet been found, some of which might include evidence of dwellings. He and has team have also noted that a rare type of algae has been found at the site which resulted in color changing stones, the only examples ever found in Britain".

"As the researches note, many types of parasites try to manipulate their hosts into behaving in ways that benefit the parasite, e.g. malaria parasites causing changes in mosquito feeding behavior and the way hair worms cause crickets to engage in suicidal behavior. In this new study, the researchers wanted to better understand how the parasite Spodoptera exiqua, a baculovirus, is able to cause the Beet Armyworm (Spodoptera exigua) larvae to climb up leaves and plants prior to dying.
Prior research has shown that after being infected with the virus, S. exigua caterpillars climb in ways that are out of the norm for them. They climb up the trees they are living on, often to the very top (giving rise to the informal name of the ailment—treetop disease) before they die from the infection—which allows the virus to be spread very easily to other caterpillars below.

Up until now, no one really knew what mechanism was in put in place by the virus to cause the behavior change in the caterpillar. In this new effort, the researchers believe they have discovered that the virus actually causes the caterpillar to perceive light differently.
By observing both healthy and infected caterpillars in their lab, and by altering light conditions, the researchers found that healthy caterpillars never climb to the top of the plants they are on. They also found that once mature, the caterpillars actually move lower before turning into immobile pupae. In contrast, caterpillars exposed to the virus began climbing within three days of infection and then continued climbing for up to 14 hours".___

"(Ionic liquids have a lot of useful qualities, but most useful for materials processing is that ionic liquids are made up of two parts: the cation and the anion. We can play around with the chemical identities of each of those components and that opens the doors to huge amount of options,) says Mudring. "That means we can really engineer ionic liquids with specific functions in mind."
One such function is improving the rare-earth separation process, either for extracting rare earths from ore or recycling rare earths from discarded magnets.
"We are tuning the ionic liquids in such a way that they dissolve rare-earth oxides and then we're using electrodeposition, where electricity is run through a liquid to create a chemical change to get the rare earth in metal form," says Mudring, who is also a professor of materials science and engineering at Iowa State... more »

Traditionally, electrodeposition processes are extremely high temperature and often require corrosive chemicals. But Mudring's process requires much lower temperatures and ionic liquids are less hazardous, so less energy is needed and the process is safer and greener.
Mudring's group is also using ionic liquids to create phosphors for compact fluorescent light bulbs.
"We're using ionic liquids, putting them in a microwave, energizing them, and creating a phosphors material. The phosphors particles are less than 10 nanometers, which means they do not scatter light, key for optical applications like for compact fluorescent light bulbs," says Mudring.
Better yet, Mudring's process also reduces the amount of rare-earth materials required in the process, and may someday make it possible to replace mercury vapor with less-hazardous noble gases in CFLs. And looking farther down the road, the new phosphors could also be used in LEDs as they continue to replace CFLs".

"A seven-year pilot project in the 12,000-acre Pleasant Valley subwatershed of the Pecatonica River has helped to reduce the amount of phosphorus and sediment entering the river after major storms by more than a third.
The project involved changing practices on just 10 of the valley's 61 farms. Certain practices, such as reducing tillage and planting crops that leave more residue to protect the soil, caused the estimated annual amounts of phosphorus and sediment entering the river to drop by 4,400 pounds and 1,300 tons, respectively.
"We can say with 90 percent confidence that this project made a real reduction in the phosphorus losses," says Laura Ward Good, a soil scientist at the University of Wisconsin-Madison College of Agricultural and Life Sciences (CALS).

"Farmers who changed their management practices reduced their estimated phosphorus and sediment losses by about half."
The project was launched in 2006 by a multi-institutional team that included University of Wisconsin-Madison scientists, public agencies, local farmers and The Nature Conservancy.
Researchers collected baseline data on water quality in the Pecatonica south of Pleasant Valley and a nearby watershed that served as a control. Team members then identified high-risk fields and worked with landowners to assess the likely impacts of switching practices in selected fields—not just on runoff, but also on yields, expenses, feed supplies and other factors.
A key tool for the team was SnapPlus, a software program developed at CALS that estimates each field's potential for phosphorus runoff under various management scenarios".

As a result of millions of years of evolution, true crabs are the most evolved of all crustaceans, accounting for nearly 10 thousand fossil and extant species, and possessing vast morphological diversity. Given that the tropics today are some of the most biologically diverse environments on Earth, their fossil record provides a unique window to life's past diversity, and opportunities to better understand their role in the evolution of various organisms through time.
However, fossil records from the tropics are scarce, especially for crustaceans, because of challenges such as thick vegetation and ground cover, as well as a lack of scientists actively working in the areas.
"Although Eubrachyura, or true higher crabs, are abundant in the fossil record since the Late Cretaceous, particularly in higher latitudes, we know pretty much nothing about their Early Cretaceous record, especially from lower latitudes such as the tropics," explains Luque. (This lack of knowledge biases our understanding of the early evolution of the group, and how early branches in the crab tree of life relate with extant ones). "

"(This animal, we think, may be highly evolved with an ability to navigate using magnetic sense in order to find ice holes some distance apart and get back to them safely,) explained Randall Davis of the Department of Marine Biology at Texas A&M University.
If the hypothesis turns out to be true, it would represent the first evidence of such a trait in a marine mammal.
Highlights of the research have been captured on video in underwater images and in interviews by Peter Rejcek and Ralph Maestas of the Antarctic Sun newspaper, which is published by the U.S. Antarctic Program (USAP). NSF manages the USAP, which coordinates all U.S. research on the Southernmost continent.

The question of how seals navigate is more than academic. It's about life and death for the animals, which like all mammals, require oxygen to breathe, despite their mostly aquatic environment. Time spent looking for a new place to surface after each dive would not only be inefficient given the energy required to swim and hunt, but failure to locate a hole in the ice means the animal would drown.
"These animals are doing a remarkable amount of exercise all while on breath hold," noted Terrie Williams, a professor of ecology and evolutionary biology at the University of California, Santa Cruz. She is an expert on physiology in the Weddell seal, an animal whose apparent lethargy on the surface of the sea ice belies an amazing athleticism below it".

"University of Toronto researchers have found that the European fire ant, Myrmica rubra, disperses seeds of both native and invasive plants, but it does a much better job of helping an invasive plant to spread.
"Ecologists think invasive species might help each other to spread, but there are few good examples. They talk about 'invasional meltdown,' because ecosystems could be very, very rapidly taken over by invasive species if invaders help each other out," said evolutionary biologist Megan Frederickson, one of the authors of the study, to be published December 24 in the journal Proceedings of the Royal Society B.

"University of Toronto researchers have found that the European fire ant, Myrmica rubra, disperses seeds of both native and invasive plants, but it does a much better job of helping an invasive plant to spread.
"Ecologists think invasive species might help each other to spread, but there are few good examples.

"Our results suggest that invasional meltdown could be happening right under our noses, here in Ontario."
The research was conducted at U of T's field station, the Koffler Scientific Reserve at Jokers Hill. The team created artificial ecological communities - mesocosms - inside 42 small plastic children's swimming pools.
The researchers filled each pool with soil and planted four species of spring wildflowers - three native species (sharp-lobed hepatica, Canadian wild ginger and bloodroot) and one invasive species: greater celandine. They then collected colonies of either the European fire ant or a native woodland ant and added the colonies to the pools. The ants picked up and moved seeds of these plant species and the researchers watched what happened.
"The pools with the invasive ant were overrun by the invasive plant, but pools with the native ant had lots of native plants," says co-author and ecologist Kirsten Prior. The invasive ant moved lots of seeds of all four plant species, but the invasive plant took advantage of being dispersed more than the other species and recruited in very large numbers".

The world's largest mangrove forest faces further threat from a range of projects underway to feed Bangladesh's booming economy, including a coal-fired power plant and a massive grain silo.
"The forest has lost half its cover in the last five decades. Now we've laid the groundwork to put the last nail in its coffin," Bangladesh's top independent wildlife expert, Mohsinuzzaman Chowdhury, said of the projects.
Chowdhury said he feared not only increased pollution from the projects but larger numbers of workers who would place greater stress on the delicate forest.
"Presently, around one million people are directly or indirectly dependent on the forest. But in the next decade, this number could grow to more than five million," Chowdhury said".___

"Scientists have solved a long-standing space mystery - the origin of the 'theta aurora'. Auroras are the most visible manifestation of the Sun's effect on Earth. They are seen as colorful displays in the night sky, known as the Northern or Southern Lights. They are caused by the solar wind, a stream of plasma - electrically charged atomic particles - carrying its own magnetic field, interacting with the earth's magnetic field. Normally, the main region for this impressive display is the 'auroral oval', which lies at around 65-70 degrees north or south of the equator, encircling the polar caps. However, auroras can occur at even higher latitudes. One type is known as a 'theta aurora' because seen from above it looks like the Greek letter theta - an oval with a line crossing through the center".
