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.

"A dolphin’s breath can say a lot about its health. A sulfurous whiff suggests digestive trouble; a sweet scent means pneumonia. Veterinarians often rely on their own noses to detect these differences, but they may soon get some help from modern science. Researchers have developed a technique for detecting hundreds of chemical compounds in the animals’ exhalations. The advance could eventually lead to a Breathalyzer of sorts for dolphins and other animals that could measure a suite of health parameters far more easily and less stressfully than current diagnostic methods do.
“It’s going to be a game changer for whale and dolphin research,” provided that researchers can figure out how to interpret all the compounds, says Kathleen Hunt, a research scientist at the New England Aquarium in Boston, who was not involved in the present study.

"The charismatic Australian bearded dragon changes colour in sync with its circadian rhythm, researchers have found.
The study, published today in PLoS ONE , shows that the dragon continues to change from dark colours during the early part of the day, to light at night, even when kept in the dark for 24 hours.
The central bearded dragon (Pogona vitticeps) is one of just a few reptiles known to show rhythmical colour changes, in addition to its more spectacular mating displays and its ability to camouflage against its background.
Researchers from the University of Exeter and University of Melbourne were studying the thermal benefits of colour change in the bearded dragon, and decided to explore the cyclical nature of the dragons' colour change.
"We have been measuring colour change across the full solar spectrum and then looking at how that affects the speed at which they... more »

"This was an interesting time in human prehistory. Although within the most-recent ice age, it was a relatively warm period, sometimes proposed as the point at which modern humans entered Europe. It is also when the artefacts left by many modern humans start to develop from tools similar to those used by older human species to more sophisticated ones. At the same time, we see appearance of evidence for fishing, trade, music and art.
Isotope analysis suggests that Ust'-Ishim man's diet included fish, and he was discovered not far from the Kara-Bom site, at which such artefacts have been found. So it seems likely that these were the kinds of objects he used".

"The critically endangered Saimaa ringed seal, which inhabits Lake Saimaa in Finland, has extremely low genetic diversity and this development seems to continue, according to a recent study. Researchers analyzed the temporal and regional variation in the genetic diversity of the endangered Saimaa ringed seal. The population is only around 300 individuals divided into smaller sub-populations and with very little migration among between them".

"Despite their much-maligned reputation as terrifying predators, sharks face a far greater danger in humankind. Every year, an astounding 100 million sharks are killed, with most dying as a result of illegal poaching or drowning in commercial fishing nets. Perkins hopes his work will not only help in changing the public's negative perceptions of great whites and other shark species, but also in raising awareness about their most serious threat: people.
And yet while sharks are essential to maintaining healthy ocean ecosystems, in part by keeping populations of their prey in check, many misconceptions regarding these endangered animals persist – two in particular that Perkins would like to see eliminated altogether: the notion that they are mindless killing machines, and the suggestion that they have a taste for people.

"Tiny, soapy bubbles can reorganize their membranes to let material flow in and out in response to the surrounding environment, according to researchers. This behavior could be exploited in creating microbubbles that deliver drugs or other payloads inside the body -- and could help us understand how the very first living cells on Earth might have survived billions of years ago".

"Throughout Africa, vulture populations have suffered an alarming collapse in numbers in recent years. In rural parts of West Africa some species have declined by over 95%, while the famous Maasai Mara National Reserve has lost an average of 62% of its vultures over the past three decades. Aside from poisoning - both targeted and incidental - vultures are threatened by wind turbines, electricity pylons, habitat destruction, food loss and poaching.
Unlike most other vulture populations, the one in Swaziland is predicted to increase in size over the next few years, but, according to the zoologists' work, this will only happen if the birds get a helping hand in the form of a free dinner from time to time. As a result, they advocate creating 'vulture restaurants,' where people will need to provide food for the birds as a supplementary resource to their natural diet.

Dr Andrew Jackson, Assistant Professor in Zoology and Principal Investigator in the Trinity Centre for Biodiversity Research in the School of Natural Sciences at Trinity supervised the research. He said: "Creating vulture restaurants might seem a radical idea, but conserving any endangered animal is a very complicated task, and we might need to get creative to have the impact we want."
Attracting vultures to particular restaurants with well-stocked larders could also create unique opportunities to capture and tag the birds, which would provide invaluable data to help learn more valuable information about their foraging behavior, the zoologists said".___

Blood is the material of choice for learning about an animal’s health, because it contains every substance circulating in the body. But obtaining it is difficult for researchers and hard on animals. A sample of an animal’s breath is much easier to obtain, and researchers believe it contains as many diagnostic molecules as blood, just at lower concentrations that are much harder to detect and analyze. More than 1800 compounds have been identified in human breath, and tests are being developed for diabetes, cancer, and other afflictions".___

"Now scientists say it was due to incredibly low levels of oxygen on Earth more than a billion years ago.
A team determined the chemical composition of ancient rocks to find there was about 0.1% of the oxygen levels present compared with today.
The researchers present their work in Science journal.
Why complex life took so long to appear on the scene has puzzled scientists for many years. It was only over 500 million years ago that life on Earth began to flourish in a period known as the Cambrian explosion.
For the one billion years before that, in an era called the mid-Proterozoic, though life was present it consisted of very simple organisms.
These creatures were able to survive on very low levels of oxygen, but more complex life could not".

"Agarikon grows to resemble a very large beehive and grows like a fruit hanging from the places where branches connect to trunks on old tall trees. Historians have noted that Native Americans mashed the fungus and used it as a medical remedy for a variety of ailments.

They also reaffirmed that eating the fungi can reduce inflammation and that it can be used to help combat both bacterial and viral infections. Thus far, he reports, research has shown strong activity against cowpox, swine and bird flu and the virus that causes herpes. In some instances, he notes the effectiveness was better in some cases than conventional therapies. He claims also that thus far there is no indication that agarikon is toxic to humans".___

"Scientists have identified a key phenomenon in the triggering of solar flares. Using satellite data and models, the scientists were able to monitor the evolution of the solar magnetic field in a region with eruptive behavior. Their calculations reveal the formation of a magnetic rope1 that emerges from the interior of the Sun and is associated with the appearance of a sunspot. They show that this structure plays an important role in triggering the flare".

"Roman gladiators drank an energy drink of vinegar and ash, according to an anthropological investigation of arena fighter bones.
Swiss and Austrian researchers examined bones from a 2nd century gladiator graveyard uncovered in 1993 in the ancient Roman city of Ephesos, Turkey. At that time, Ephesos was the capital of the Roman province of Asia and had over 200,000 inhabitants.
It emerged that the diet of the arena fighters was quite different from the high-protein intake of modern athletes. Indeed, the typical food eaten by gladiators was wheat, barley and beans.

"Contemporary Roman texts mention that gladiators consumed a specific diet called 'gladiatoriam saginam', which included barley and bell beans. Their consumption of barley led to the derogatory nickname 'hordearii' (barley eaters)," Fabian Kanz, of the Medical University of Vienna, and colleagues write in the journal PLoS One .
Kanz's team analysed the skeletal remains of 53 individuals, including 22 gladiators from about 1800 years ago.
Using spectroscopy, the researchers measured the carbon, nitrogen and sulphur in the collagen of the bones, as well as the ratio of strontium (a chemical element that's found in ash) to calcium".___

"The Asian tiger mosquito (Aedes albopictus) was spotted in Houston in 1985 but can now be found in all of the southern states and as far north as Maine. To reconstruct its spread, scientists turned to the new discipline of landscape genetics. Correlating genetic patterns with landscape patterns, they concluded that the mosquito had hitched a ride along highways. One of only a handful of landscape genetics studies to track an invasive species, this is the first to detect hitchhiking".

"We don’t think of ants and butterflies as big talkers. But critical conversations occur between Maculinea caterpillars and Myrmica ants. Ants carry the 2-week-old caterpillars into their nests, where the caterpillars mimic the sounds made by queen ants and so get red carpet treatment. In 2009, researchers discovered that worker and queen ants have distinct calls and that caterpillar intruders get more food, care, and protection than the ants’ own larvae—even when food is scarce—by making queenlike noises themselves. Now, that team has tested 12 other related butterfly species for their ant-speak expertise. Even those that do not rely on ants for food and shelter make the queenlike sounds, they report today at the 168th Meeting of the Acoustical Society of America in Indianapolis. They suggest that many arthropods may use sound to fool their ant hosts".

The study, published in the journal Scientific Reports, backs long-standing suspicions that these craters, just 16 kms apart, were caused by a "doublet", an extremely rare double whammy caused by asteroids travelling in pairs.
The team, led by Jens Ormoe of the Centre for Astrobiology in Madrid, Spain, carried out drilling into the craters, looking for traces of sediment altered by impact shock.
They also mapped the halo of ejecta—a ring of debris hurled up by the smash, which landed up to tens of kilometres away from the inner crater.
The Lockne impact was created by an object about 600 metres long, while the Malingen impactor was about 150 m long, the experts said.
They were so-called "rubble pile" asteroids, or fragments travelling in a cluster.
"Doublets" are a debated area of astrophysics.
Modelling of asteroids that come close to Earth suggest that about 16 percent of these objects travel in pairs.
But of the 188 known craters on Earth, only 10—in Canada, Russia, Germany, Finland and Brazil—are considered to be serious candidates as doublets".___

One of these was part of the genome of an RNA virus, which the researchers identified as belonging to the insect-infecting genus Cripavirus. They think caribou may have ingested insects infected with the virus. Insects attracted to the caribou or the feces may also have deposited the virus on the feces and the surrounding snow.
Delwart's team was able to reconstruct the entire genome of a DNA virus from the other viral sequence. This virus did not closely resemble any modern sequenced virus. However, the team discovered distant relationships with a group of plant-infecting viruses called geminiviruses and with gemycircularviruses, found in dragonflies, fungi and animal feces".___

"We have been measuring colour change across the full solar spectrum and then looking at how that affects the speed at which they heat up and cool down," says co-author and evolutionary biologist Dr Devi Stuart-Fox, from the University of Melbourne.
Dragons are typically dark-brown in the morning, which helps them to absorb more heat to reach their active body temperature. Then, when they need to control their body temperature during the heat of the afternoon, their skin turns a light cream or orange colour, and remains that way throughout the night".___

"(We suggest that we should learn from nature and do what halophytes, or naturally salt-loving plants, are doing: taking up salt but depositing it in a safe place—external balloon-like structures called salt bladders,) says co-senior author Prof. Sergey Shabala, of the University of Tasmania, in Australia. "This strategy has never been targeted by breeders and, therefore, could add a new and very promising dimension to breeding salinity-tolerant crops."

Dr. Shabala and his colleagues note that recent research on salt bladders creates the exciting possibility of modifying genes in traditional crops such as wheat or rice to allow them to develop salt bladders without a major impact on their growth and yield. "We know already about the key genes required to grow trichomes, or outgrowths of a plant. If we learn to activate those that trigger the developmental shift from an ordinary trichome to a salt bladder, one may be able to grow external salt depots on any crop," says co-senior author Prof. Rainer Hedrich, of the Institute for Molecular Plant Physiology and Biophysics, in Würzburg, Germany".___

"Megalodon, an ancient 14-18m-long predator that resembled a super-sized Great White, may have preyed on primitive baleen whales.
These whales were typically smaller than their counterparts today.
In their paper, the researchers produce what they say is the best estimate yet for the date of Megalodon's extinction.
This date of 2.6 million years ago falls on the border between the Pliocene and Pleistocene epochs. And it was after this point that baleen whales began to grow to their gigantic sizes.
Marine mammals are thought to have constituted an important part of the 50-tonne shark's diet. Though there's no conclusive evidence they fed on baleen whales, their fossils are often found along with Megalodon (Carcharocles megalodon) teeth.
If they were on the shark's menu, then the removal of this lorry-sized predator might have allowed them to flourish.

This date of 2.6 million years ago falls on the border between the Pliocene and Pleistocene epochs. And it was after this point that baleen whales began to grow to their gigantic sizes.
Marine mammals are thought to have constituted an important part of the 50-tonne shark's diet. Though there's no conclusive evidence they fed on baleen whales, their fossils are often found along with Megalodon (Carcharocles megalodon) teeth.
If they were on the shark's menu, then the removal of this lorry-sized predator might have allowed them to flourish.
The baleen whales filter tiny animals out of the water through comb-like structures in their mouths. The group includes the biggest animal alive today - the blue whale (Balaenoptera musculus), which can grow to more than 30m in length.
Co-author Catalina Pimiento, from the Florida Museum of Natural History in Gainesville, US, said this was a first step in ongoing research to understand the disappearance of Megalodon".___
