Jason Levy28,118This is my TEAM ELITE ENGAGERS CIRCLE VIOLET EDITIONAs it has been some time since I posted a #teamelite circle, my   #teamelite circles have a colour theme this time, so they are named Purple and Violet. 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. Add me to your circles, if you haven't done so already2. +1 this circle3. Publicly share this circle to public, your circles and extended circles.4. If possible, leave a comment on this circle so I know you have done the three steps above (I say "if posible" as my circle comments more often than not hit the 500 comment limit).BE THE BEST OF THE BEST:To get into my     #eliteinnercircle  you need to share my Purple and Violet     #teamelite  circles, as well as my current   #eliteinnercircle circle.

Jason Levy24,173This is my SURPRISE WELCOME CIRCLE 6 - STORM EDITIONI'm sharing with you my SURPRISE WELCOME CIRCLE 6 - STORM EDITIONThis circle contains people who are new to my circles. I'm still playing catch up with my welcome circles, so many of the people in this circle have already engaged with me in some way, and some are already in #teamelite . They are all great people, and without a doubt, if you add them, you will have an even better Google plus experience as they plus, share and comment on your own posts.To help them, and to help you grow your followers I am sharing them here.To get to the next level and have a chance to become a Team Elite Engager (and this also applies to people who aren't in this circle), there are four simple steps:1. Add me to your circles.2. +1 this post.3. Share this post.4. Optionally, comment to let me know what you have done! (If it has already reached 500 comments, you won't be able to comment - that's why it's optional).5. Also, share my current #teamelite circle at https://plus.google.com/+JasonLevy/posts/huoZu9hMsGL (this circle is currently on 417 shares, so just think of how much your circles will grow if you get into #teamelite !)You can also add both circles, but BE WARNED! Your g+ engagement is likely to increase if you do so. I'm not sure if you could handle it. My Team Elite Engager Circles are shared regularly by other circle sharers - they currently stand at over 1000 active sharers, and will be reviewed and reshared regularly, so do yourselves a big favour and become one of the Elite!      #teamelite  #circleshare    #circlesharing    #sharedcircles    #sharedpubliccircles     #publiccircle    #teamelitecircle    #teameliteengagecircle   #dontconfusethecircles  ~@~@~@~@~@~@~@~@~@~@~@~@~@~@~I don't wish to offend anyone on the internet, so if you would like to be removed from my shared circles, please send me a private message and I won't share your profile in the future.

"In the Calnali River in Mexico, two pure species of swordtail fish live side by side with a third population that’s a mix of the original two. Classical models of evolution predict that pure females would not mate with these hybrids, as the hybrids are considered less fit from an evolutionary perspective. But a new study shows that’s not the case. Researchers examined the two pure swordtail species, Xiphophorus birchmanni and Xiphophorus malinche, as well as the hybrids, tagging the animals and extracting DNA to probe their mating patterns. They discovered that X. birchmanni and X. malinche did not mate with each other, but that females of both species mated with the hybrids. Hybrids can therefore act as a channel for genes to flow between the pure species populations, the team will report next month in The American Naturalist. But if the two pure species can’t mate, how did the hybrids form inthe f... more »

"The only type of bird that relies solely on its own strength to hover in the air, a hummingbird flapping its wings requires more mass-based mechanical power output than any other form of locomotion. Now, scientists have discovered that the tiny bird’s efficiency comes from the ratio of the wing’s length to its width. Researchers from Stanford University and Wageningen University tested the hover performance of 26 hummingbird wings from 12 different species in a machine that measured the torque and lift the wings produced at various angles. The study, published online today in the Journal of the Royal Society Interface, shows that the power needed to sustain a hummingbird midhover is highly dependent on the bird’s wing aspect ratio. During the down stroke, wings with a larger aspect ratio (3.5 to 4.0 for hummingbirds) use significantly less power than wings with smaller aspect ratios. The studyalso ... more »

"A real-life "Octomom" off the coast of California has been declared a champion of parenting — and patience — in the animal world.
After the deep-sea creature laid a clutch of eggs, she protected her babies until they hatched 4.5 years later, without even leaving to eat. Not only is that four times longer than most shallow-water octopuses even live, but it's also the longest brooding period known of any animal on the planet, elephants and emperor penguins included, according to a new study.
The findings, detailed today (July 30) in the journal PLOS ONE, suggest octopuses far below the surface might live much longer than their shore-hugging cousins. The case of extreme parenting also illustrates how some animals have evolved grueling strategies to ensure their offspring survive in such a hostile environment as the deep ocean".

"Electronic technologies in the future could utilize an intrinsic property of electrons called spin, which is what gives them their magnetic properties. Spin can take either of two possible states: "up" or "down", which can be pictured respectively as clockwise or counter-clockwise rotation of the electron around its axis.
Spin control can be achieved with materials called topological insulators, which can conduct spin-polarized electrons across their surface with 100% efficiency while the interior acts as an insulator.
However, topological insulators are still in the experimental phase. One particular insulator, samarium hexaboride (SmB6), has been of great interest. Unlike other topological insulators, SmB6's insulating properties are based on a special phenomenon called the 'Kondo effect'. The Kondo effect prevents the flow of electrons from being destroyed... more »

"Transposable elements (TEs) are DNA sequences that can "jump" around the genome that were originally dismissed as junk DNA. As more genome sequences have become accessible, researchers are finding that transposable elements play roles in genomic variation. Fungal researchers have found a correlation between symbiotic plant pathogens and the amount of transposable elements. To learn more about this association and whether or not it is useful in plant-fungal symbioses, a team including U.S. Department of Energy Joint Genome Institute (DOE JGI) researchers applied short-read sequencing and compared the genomes of related asymbiotic and ectomycorrhizal fungi within the genus Amanita. The work was published ahead online June 12, 2014 in Genome Biology and Evolution.
Working with collaborators at Harvard University, the DOE JGI has already sequenced and assembled the genome of Amanita... more »

"Using direct observation, animal tracking and computer simulation, McCauley, an assistant professor in the Department of Ecology, Evolution and Marine Biology, and his colleagues sought to understand whether the world's largest parrotfish is necessary for positively shaping the structure and functioning of ecosystems. The answer, published in a recent issue of the journal Conservation Biology, is yes and no.
"We actually swam alongside bumphead parrotfish for close to six hours at a time, taking detailed data on what they ate and where they went," McCauley explained. "It was one of the more exhausting but wonderful experiences I've had as a field scientist."
Often more than 4 feet long and weighing in at more than 100 pounds, bumpheads are major coral predators; one fish can consume just over 2 tons of living coral in a year. They are also a threatened species in... more »

"There are many articles with lists of the most poisonous substances, which are often gathered based on their acute toxicity as measured by something called LD50. But acute toxicity is only one factor that needs to be considered, and relying solely on LD50 or similar measures is overly simplistic".

"Nearly half the population of Europe lives within 50 kilometres of the coastline. Coasts are often the nub of vital economic activity. The total length of our coastlines is almost 90,000 kilometres. Securing the land behind them can be an enormous job, particularly in view of rising sea levels. Much of the coast is protected by dunes, which provide a natural line of defence. However, very little is known about their natural development under different types of management, despite their immense importance to a country like the Netherlands. The Dutch dunes not only protect the coast, they are also an important part of various ecosystem services, such as drinking water supplies, recreation and conservation".

"Starting on August 11, a team of Swiss and Greek scientists will seek a "prehistoric countryside" in the southeastern Peloponnese peninsula, University of Geneva researcher Julien Beck told AFP.
The month-long mission, jointly organised with the Swiss school of archaeology and the Greek culture ministry, will search around the Franchthi cave in the Argolic gulf, where early Europeans lived between the Paleolithic and Neolithic periods.
The cave was eventually abandoned around 3,000 BCE but scientists assume the inhabitants must have built a village nearby.
"This cave was inhabited continuously for around 35,000 years... and we have reason to believe that towards the end of the Neolithic era, the inhabitants moved to a neighbouring site that is now underwater," Beck said.
"If we could find this village, it would be among the oldest in Greece and... more »

"As reported recently in Nature, physicists at the Weizmann Institute of Science used a similar trick to measure the interaction between the smallest possible magnets – two single electrons – after neutralizing magnetic noise that was a million times stronger than the signal they needed to detect.
Dr. Roee Ozeri of the Institute's Physics of Complex Systems Department says: "The electron has spin, a form of orientation involving two opposing magnetic poles. In fact, it's a tiny bar magnet." The question is whether pairs of electrons act like regular bar magnets in which the opposite poles attract one another.
Dr. Shlomi Kotler performed the study while a graduate student under Dr. Ozeri's guidance, with Drs. Nitzan Akerman, Nir Navon and Yinnon Glickman. Detecting the magnetic interaction of two electrons poses an enormous challenge: When the electrons are at a closeran... more »

"A range of UK birds' eggs showed adaptations in pigment concentration and thickness to allow the right amount of sun to reach the embryos inside.
Researchers examined 75 species' eggs kept in a museum collection.
"Embryos do need UV exposure to develop - too little and they don't develop enough... too much and it causes damage," said team member Dr Steven Portugal from the University of London.
"Birds whose nests are exposed to the sun and birds which have long incubation periods too, have more pigment and allow less light to go through the shell to avoid UV damage to embryos," he explained.
The study, published online in the journal Functional Ecology, suggests thickness and pigment in eggshells change depending on the nest environment.
Wild birds' eggshell colours can be white, blue and spotted. The blue colour found in many eggs is caused... more »

"Researchers have tracked a green turtle migrating nearly 4000 kilometers from its home. That’s a record breaker for the species, but it’s bad news for some marine protected areas (MPAs). Such zones are off-limits to fishing, yet they may not be keeping these turtles—and other highly migratory animals—safe, according to a new study.
The work focused on an MPA in the Indian Ocean’s Chagos Archipelago. The 640,000-square-kilometer MPA contains numerous threatened and endangered species, including sharks and turtles. It was created in 2010 to protect the enormous biodiversity of the archipelago. To figure out how well the Chagos MPA safeguards its inhabitants, an international team of researchers attached GPS tracking devices to eight green turtles (Chelonia mydas) and monitored their movements as they made the trek to their foraging grounds.

"The new species, called Labiobaetis soldani, "is named in honor of Dr. T. Soldan for his substantial contribution to the understanding of the Ephemeroptera of Palaearctic and Oriental realms," according to the authors of a study that describes the new mayfly in the Journal of Insect Science.
The larvae have light-brown heads with light-yellow antennae, and they grow to be about 4-5 millimeters in length. Adults are also about five millimeters long, and the males and females both lack hind wings.
Labiobaetis soldani is closely related to Labiobaetis pulchellus, which has been described from Sri Lanka in the larval stage. However, it can be differentiated from all other Labiobaetis species described from the Oriental region by several morphological differences".

"The power of Earth's gravity heats up a layer around the Moon's core keeping it liquid, suggests a new model of the lunar interior.
The findings, reported in the journal Nature Geoscience, have implications for our understanding of how the Moon evolved over time.
"This research lets us see a little bit deeper inside the Moon and gives us a better idea of what's going on there," says one of the study's authors, Dr Sander Goossens from NASA's Goddard Space Flight Centre, and the University of Maryland.
Goossens and colleagues developed their new model of the Moon's interior, to explain anomalies in the moon's orbit and its gravitational readings.
"Something solid rotates slightly differently to something with liquids inside it, and those observations were giving us clues about the interior of the Moon," says Goossens.

"A flock of starlings flies as one, a spectacular display in which each bird flits about as if in a well-choreographed dance. Everyone seems to know exactly when and where to turn. Now, for the first time, researchers have measured how that knowledge moves through the flock—a behavior that mirrors certain quantum phenomena of liquid helium.
"This is one of the first studies that gets to the details of how groups move in unison," says David Sumpter of Uppsala University in Sweden, who was not part of the study.
The remarkable accord with which starling flocks fly has long puzzled researchers and bird watchers alike. In the 1930s, the ornithologist Edmund Selous even suggested that the birds cooperate via telepathy. Researchers have since turned to more scientifically sound ideas, using mathematical models.
In the 1990s, physicist Tamás Vicsek of Eötvös Loránd University inBudap... more »

"(Wear is a major cause of failure in engineering applications,) said Srinivasan Chandrasekar, a Purdue University professor of industrial engineering and materials engineering. "However, our findings have implications beyond wear itself, extending to manufacturing and materials processing."
The findings are the result of a collaboration of researchers from Purdue, the Indian Institute of Science in Bangalore, India, and M4 Sciences, a company in West Lafayette, Indiana.
"Using high-resolution imaging of sliding contacts in metals, we have demonstrated a new way by which wear particles and surface defects can form," said Purdue postdoctoral research associate Anirban Mahato, who is working with Chandrasekar; Narayan Sundaram, an assistant professor at the Indian Institute of Science; and Yang Guo, a research scientist at M4 Sciences.

"The Tsushima leopard cat is an endangered wildcat inhabiting Tsushima islands, Nagasaki prefecture. It is regarded as a subspecies of the leopard cat and is thought to have arrived in Tsushima from the Asian continent about 100,000 years ago. The population of the Tsushima leopard cat has been declining mainly due to habitat degradation and road kills. It was designated by the Japanese government as a National Nature Monument in 1971 and as a National Endangered Species in 1994. A conservation project plan was established in 1995 to protect the species, under the direction of the Ministry of the Environment in conjunction with other government agencies."

"In Somalia the ecologically diverse region is home to a number of endemic plants species, as well as many rare animals. Unfortunately, the area lacks proper conservation and is threatened by deforestation and intensive livestock grazing.
The uplifted plateau to the south has the distinct pattern of water erosion from rivers and streams making their way towards the edges of the cliffs, before cascading down. There are numerous perennial and persistent waterfalls in this region.
In some areas, we can see where water continues to flow north across the coastal plain towards the Gulf of Aden .

"Nishinoshima, some 1,000 kilometres (620 miles) south of Tokyo, joined up with a small volcanic islet formed in November and the new mass now measures 1.26 square kilometres (0.49 square miles) around, the Japanese coastguard said.
The agency's images showed a few craters on Nishinoshima spewing columns of smoke 1,500-2,000 metres (4,900-6,600 feet) high as molten lava flowed into the sea, sending clouds of white steam into the sky.
Nishinoshima is estimated to be 10 million years old".

"Animals living in soil experience the same pressures as an animal flying or swimming, so we predicted that their ears should look the same,' says Dr Hillary Maddin of Carleton University Canada, a lead author on the study who conducted the research while at Harvard University, USA. 'But caecilians have a much larger ventral organ, which is probably used for transmitting vibrations from the ground to the ear.'
'Living underground means that their ears are basically non-functioning for hearing airborne sound and being limbless they have their heads on the ground all the time. So by having this larger organ to determine vibrations it helps them see if prey or predators are around. It's unique to this group.' she continues.
The team studied salamanders, frogs and caecilians using a CT scanner, similar to those used in hospitals. This produced a digital image of the... more »

"The long-nosed, hairy mammals are not typically aggressive toward people and are considered a vulnerable species by the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN), largely due to deforestation and human settlements that encroach on their territory.
However, they have poor vision and if frightened, they may defend themselves with front claws that are as long as pocketknives.
The case studies of two fatal attacks by giant anteaters were described in the journal Wilderness and Environmental Medicine, which released the paper online this month, ahead of its publication in the December print issue.
"Both were farmers, were hunting and were attacked by wounded or cornered animals," lead author Vidal Haddad of the Botucatu School of Medicine at Sao Paulo State University told AFP.
In the first case, a 47-year-old man was hunting with his two sons and his dogs when... more »

"Blood-sucking insects may have been around for a lot longer than we thought. Newly discovered fossils show that bugs have been feeding on blood since the height of the dinosaur era. One of the fossilised bugs found seems to have died just after feasting on blood.
Dong Ren of Capital Normal University in Beijing and his colleagues studied three fossilised bugs from China's fossil-rich Yixian Formation. They realised that the insects belonged to a hitherto-unknown family of true bugs that lived in the early Cretaceous period, around 130 million years ago.
Chemical analysis showed that the three bug fossils contained a lot of iron, suggesting they drank blood. It's unclear if they fed on dinosaurs, or other large animals.
Previously, the oldest-known blood-feeding insect was from 100 million years ago. The new fossils push the record back 30 million years.
Blood feeding has... more »

"Most visitors to Africa come for the lions, elephants, and rhinos. But for the tourists who helicoptered into this somewhat remote region of central Kenya last month, wild dogs topped their list. Once so common in Africa that they were shot as vermin, the elusive canines are becoming poster children for conservation: Fewer than 7000 are left in Africa, their native range.
A reporter visiting the center, I love dogs and so jumped at the chance to track some down in advance of the tourists’ arrival. It was a dusty, bumpy ride into the bush, for a fleeting view of animals that aren’t really dogs after all. But along the way, I came to appreciate their incredible story. They are full of wanderlust, and their packs show camaraderie and coordination to rival the best military unit. Yet they are quite vulnerable, and even though several teams of researchers have dedicated large chunks of their livesfol... more »

"In the Calnali River in Mexico, two pure species of swordtail fish live side by side with a third population that’s a mix of the original two. Classical models of evolution predict that pure females would not mate with these hybrids, as the hybrids are considered less fit from an evolutionary perspective. But a new study shows that’s not the case. Researchers examined the two pure swordtail species, Xiphophorus birchmanni and Xiphophorus malinche, as well as the hybrids, tagging the animals and extracting DNA to probe their mating patterns. They discovered that X. birchmanni and X. malinche did not mate with each other, but that females of both species mated with the hybrids. Hybrids can therefore act as a channel for genes to flow between the pure species populations, the team will report next month in The American Naturalist. But if the two pure species can’t mate, how did the hybrids form inthe f... more »

"Saharan dust played a major role in the formation of the Bahamas islands, a new study suggests. Researchers showed that iron-rich Saharan dust provides the nutrients necessary for specialized bacteria to produce the island chain's carbonate-based foundation. Persistent winds across Africa's 3.5-million square mile Sahara Desert lifts mineral-rich sand into the atmosphere where it travels the nearly 5,000-mile northwest journey towards the U.S. and Caribbean".

"Close analysis of bacteria in the human digestive tract reveals links to diet and other lifestyle factors, researchers report. Trillions of bacteria live in each person's digestive tract. Scientists believe that some of these bacteria help digest food and stave off harmful infections, but their role in human health is not well understood".

"Professor Yushan Yan's early academic work focused on zeolites, porous rock with a well-defined, crystalline structure. At the atomic scale, their pore size is so precisely decided that zeolites can separate molecules with size differences of merely a fraction of an angstrom (one-tenth of a nanometer), making them useful to the chemical and petroleum industries as molecular sieves for separation and catalysis processes.
In a landmark paper—"Designed Synthesis of Large-Pore Crystalline Polyimide Covalent Organic Frameworks"—published in the July 23 edition of the international scientific journal Nature Communications, Yan describes a new approach to creating organic zeolites.
"There is a dream out there to build organic zeolites. If you can create organic zeolites, you can do more and even better catalysis and better separations. It opens the door for applicationspre... more »

"Researchers agree that birds are dinosaurs, but when did dinosaurs start becoming birds? New excavations in Siberia reveal that one sure sign of birdiness, the presence of feathers, has very deep roots in the dino evolutionary tree; indeed, dinosaurs may have been sporting feathers from the very beginning of their existence about 240 million years ago.
The fossil record makes clear that birds were the only dinosaurs to survive a mass extinction about 66 million years ago, probably caused by a massive asteroid hitting Earth. But the past decade or two of research, which is marked by the discovery of thousands of specimens of early birds and flying dinosaurs, also shows that feathers were an early evolutionary innovation—even if they probably arose for reasons unrelated to powered flight, such as insulation or sexual display.
Just how early has been a matter of debate. Although the beste... more »

"After the asteroid impact at the end of the Cretaceous period that triggered the dinosaurs' extinction and ushered in the Paleocene, leaf-mining insects in the western United States completely disappeared. Only a million years later, at Mexican Hat, in southeastern Montana, fossil leaves show diverse leaf-mining traces from new insects that were not present during the Cretaceous, according to paleontologists".
