I tend to agree with the authors of The New Universe that we are on the edge of either greatness or doom with our global society. I think that before the end of this century, humanity has to shed those ancient cultural and even instinctual views and behaviors which make us continue to act like we are still in little disconnected villages where the collective view of the world ends at our local horizons and warring on other groups will only have consequences for the enemy. We also need to be more aware of the potential threats from beyond Earth as well, such as from the planetoids and comets that wander out Sol system which could one day strike our world and cause devastation on a global scale.

Coral Cohabiters: Time for a Status Update?

● Symbiosis derives from the terms sym for together, and biosis for life. The coral reef appears to be a poster child for a lifetime of togetherness. The soft tissues of coral polyps are embedded with hundreds of single-celled, free-swimming dinoflagellates, captured from nutrient poor, crystal clear tropical waters. Photosynthesis by dinoflagellates provides 95% of the organic food used by the polyps. In return, the dinoflagellates are housed in a safe environment where their hosts supply them with carbon dioxide and minerals needed for photosynthesis.

Coral Cohabiters: Time for a Status Update?

● Symbiosis derives from the terms sym for together, and biosis for life. The coral reef appears to be a poster child for a lifetime of togetherness. The soft tissues of coral polyps are embedded with hundreds of single-celled, free-swimming dinoflagellates, captured from nutrient poor, crystal clear tropical waters. Photosynthesis by dinoflagellates provides 95% of the organic food used by the polyps. In return, the dinoflagellates are housed in a safe environment where their hosts supply them with carbon dioxide and minerals needed for photosynthesis. 

Friends with Benefits: Like a Facebook status, the relationship of coral symbionts is complicated. Clearly, the coral benefits: oxygen and sugars produced by trapped dinoflagellates enable these corals to grow as much as three times faster as those without symbionts. But the converse is not true: in the symbiotic relationship, it takes ~70 days for the dinoflagellates to double, in contrast to a mere 3 days outside the coral. So symbiosis has a fitness cost for the algae. In reality, the coral host is more like an active farmer, who lures and engulfs the free-living dinoflagellates into captive domestication. When the coral is stressed, it loses control of the delicate energy balance in this relationship and expels its colorful guests en masse. Coral bleaching devastates the entire reef ecology and is a symptom of climate change which brings warmer, more acidic, nitrogen rich waters.

● All relationships lie along a continuum: from truly mutualistic, where both partners benefit and the success of one is tied to the success of the other, to commensalism, where one partner benefits but the other is neither harmed nor helped, and the extreme cases of parasitism, in which one organism exploits and harms the other. Isn't there a parallel with human relationships as well? 

● The more we learn about the diversity of life and the structure of genomes, the more it appears that much of the evolution of biodiversity is about the manipulation of other species—to gain resources and, in turn, to avoid being manipulated (John Thompson, 1999). True mutualism may be rare in nature. Evolutionary selection tends to maximize individual fitness and conflict of interests are inevitable!

The point of this article isn't that self-driving trucks are bad, although it reads like that at first. It's that technology is going to keep advancing and more and more traditional jobs are going to disappear. Of course, new ones will appear, but probably not at the same rate. The solution: decouple basic income from employment. People need work (not necessarily jobs) and access to resources, but one doesn't have to depend on the other. h/t +Kaikki Kasvissa

Several years later, Henry Shands, then head of the U.S. national seed bank in Fort Collins, Colorado, and I were involved in a project to upgrade the 11 international gene banks run by the Consultative Group for International Agricultural Research. We realized that, although the facilities would be in great shape, they were located in Syria, Peru, Colombia, and Nigeria—places not known for their stability. On the heels of 9/11 and Hurricane Katrina, we realized bad things could happen anywhere. We revived the idea of storing seeds in Svalbard at a meeting of gene bank directors and they agreed. Norway was open to it and commissioned me to do a feasibility study. It opened in 2008.

To incentivize drug development without encouraging overuse, the report promotes an idea gaining popularity in antibiotics: “de-linking” a drugmaker’s profits from the drug’s sales. Such strategies aim to give companies assurance that they will make money if they bring valuable new antibiotics to market, regardless of the number of pills prescribed right away. The report suggests two strategies: A “designated global body” could buy the rights to a drug from a pharmaceutical company—for a suggested $2 billion to $3 billion per antibiotic—and carefully control its supply. Or, a company would retain the rights to sell its drug, but receive an additional lump sum reward—a suggested $1 billion to $1.3 billion—for introducing it.

Fighting global warming: the tide is turning!

Good news!   We, the citizens of the world, may be starting to burn less carbon - not more!  

In 2014, global carbon dioxide emissions from energy production stopped growing!

This is according to preliminary data from the International Energy Agency.  It seems the big difference is China.  The Chinese made more electricity from renewable sources, such as hydropower, solar and wind, and burned less coal.  

In fact, a report by Greenpeace says that from April 2014 to April 2015, China's carbon emissions dropped by an amount equal to the entire carbon emissions of the United Kingdom!   

I want to check this, because it would be wonderful - a 5% drop.  They say that if this trend continues, China will close out 2015 with the biggest reduction in CO2 emissionsevery reco... more »

Fighting global warming: the tide is turning!

Good news!   We, the citizens of the world, may be starting to burn less carbon - not more!

In fact, a report by Greenpeace says that from April 2014 to April 2015, China's carbon emissions dropped by an amount equal to the entire carbon emissions of the United Kingdom!   

I want to check this, because it would be wonderful - a 5% drop.  They say that if this trend continues, China will close out 2015 with the biggest reduction in CO2 emissions every recorded by a single country.

The International Energy Agency also credits Europe's improved attempts to cut carbon emissions for the turnaround.   In the US, carbon emissions has basically been dropping since 2006 - with a big drop in 2009 due to the economic collapse, a partial bounce-back in 2010, but a general downward trend.

In the last 40 years, there have only been 3 times in which emissions stood still or fell compared to the previous year, all during global economic crises: the early 1980's, 1992, and 2009.  In 2014, however, the global economy expanded by 3%.

So, the tide may be turning!   But please remember: while carbon emissions may start dropping, they're still huge.  The amount of the CO2 in the air shot above 400 parts per million this year.  As Erika Podest of NASA put it:

CO2 concentrations haven't been this high in millions of years. Even more alarming is the rate of increase in the last five decades and the fact that CO2 stays in the atmosphere for hundreds or thousands of years. This milestone is a wake up call that our actions in response to climate change need to match the persistent rise in CO2. Climate change is a threat to life on Earth and we can no longer afford to be spectators.

So let's not slack off now!  The battle has just begun.  We need to cut carbon emissions to almost zero.

Here is the announcement by the International Energy Agency:

http://www.iea.org/newsroomandevents/news/2015/march/global-energy-related-emissions-of-carbon-dioxide-stalled-in-2014.html

"This gives me even more hope that humankind will be able to work together to combat climate change, the most important threat facing us today," said IEA Chief Economist Fatih Birol.

Their full report will come out in June.  Here is the report by Greenpeace EnergyDesk:

http://energydesk.greenpeace.org/2015/05/14/china-coal-consumption-drops-further-carbon-emissions-set-to-fall-by-equivalent-of-uk-total-in-one-year/

I trust them less than the IEA when it comes to using statistics correctly, but someone should be able to verify their claims if true.  The graph here comes from this article:

Antibiotic-resistant Escapees

It has been found that simple chlorination in wastewater treatment plants may not be enough to kill certain bacteria that make an enzyme that can defeat the mainstay antibiotic used for treating antibiotic-resistant infections.  Furthermore having proliferated and escaped treatment these bacteria can share those genes that program for this enzyme.

“We often think about sewage treatment plants as a way to protect us, to get rid of all of these disease-causing constituents in wastewater. But it turns out these microbes are growing. They’re eating sewage, so they proliferate. In one wastewater treatment plant, we had four to five of these superbugs coming out for every one that came in.”

Antibiotic-resistant bacteria have been raising alarms for years, particularly in hospital environments where public health officials fear they can be transferred from patient to patient and are very difficult to treat. Bacteria harboring the encoding gene that makes them resistant have been found on every continent except for Antarctica, the researchers wrote.

In the demo I saw, the app, drawing on a sample bank account, reported that “if you earn less than $380, Even will automatically boost your paycheck. If you earn more than $380, Even will automatically pay back boosts and save the extra to your cushion.” The F.A.Q. section also discloses that your “Even pay” already reflects the $3 a week you pay the company for its services.___

Math also represents an ideal starting point for an under-resourced region to begin the climb up the research ladder. State-of-the-art biochemistry or electrical engineering requires expensive instruments and years of training just to start generating data. “The good thing about mathematical sciences is that it doesn’t require heavy infrastructure,” Zomahoun says. “It’s cheap – you just need a pen, paper, and then you can do it.” (c)

While there need to be more opportunities for young scientists, mandatory retirement is so obviously discriminatory that I don't understand what the European courts were thinking. (I have a similar opinion of that proposed "winding down" grant program.) Moreover, forcing people to retire can hurt departments by reducing diversity of knowledge and experience. I benefited greatly from having a Ph.D. advisor in his late 70's. He was no longer chasing grants, which created a great environment to work and learn in. Moreover, he had seen things that others in the department hadn't. What was systems ecology like in the 1950s or the 1970s? He could tell you. What types of research turned out to be impractical at the time but might work now? Are current scientific debates rehashing old ones?

Most of these hardened, often homeless injectors couldn’t believe he was for real. And when they saw that this tall, ruggedly handsome blonde guy was actually risking arrest to try to help them save their own lives, they were touched. People whose faces bore the street mask of affectless despair lit up, if only momentarily — some even asked how they could help.

This was unlike their other interactions. Here, they were accepted exactly as they were. Here they were welcomed, not rejected. To addicts, then, the message of needle exchange is powerful. It says, “You are valuable and human, even if you do take drugs.” It says, “I know you want to do the right thing and I want to help you.”

When you come from a world where you are seen as the lowest of the low — where people literally cross the street to avoid you — such a message is stunning. And oddly, because it allows addicted people to feel accepted while still taking drugs, needle exchange often opens the door to considering recovery.___

When Vega is North

In only about 12,000 years Vega will be the North Star, the closest bright star to our fair planet's North Celestial Pole. By then, when you fix your camera to a tripod long exposures of the night sky will show the concentric arcs of star trails centered on a point near Vega as Earth rotates on its axis. Of course, presently the bright star conveniently near the North Celestial Pole is Polaris, but that will change as the Earth's axis of rotation precesses, like the wobble of a spinning top with a precession period of about 26,000 years. If your camera is ready now and you don't want to wait 12,000 years for Vega to be the North Star, consider this ingenious demonstration of contemporary star trails (left) versus star trails reminiscent of the year... more »

In only about 12,000 years Vega will be the North Star, the closest bright star to our fair planet's North Celestial Pole.

Of course, presently the bright star conveniently near the North Celestial Pole is Polaris, but that will change as the Earth's axis of rotation precesses, like the wobble of a spinning top with a precession period of about 26,000 years. If your camera is ready now and you don't want to wait 12,000 years for Vega to be the North Star, consider this ingenious demonstration of contemporary star trails (left) versus star trails reminiscent of the year 14000 CE. Both were recorded this April at the Alqueva Dark Sky Reserve in Alentejo, Portugal. To produce the more Vega-centric star trails of the distant future, astronomer Miguel Claro combined the rotation of two startracking camera mounts to create the apparent shift in planet Earth's North Celestial Pole.___
