Did you just uncover an interesting tidbit of knowledge related to current science? Tell us.
Geological processes don't always occur over long stretches of time. Landslides triggered by recent 7.9 magnitude earthquake in China have blocked rivers causing new - and perhaps unstable - lakes to form in the devastated landscape.
Satellite photos taken of the region around Beichuan County show formation of a lake in one of the worst hit areas. Twenty other lakes have formed in Beichuan because of the massive tremor and are being monitored closely according to a story in Chinese Daily.
Death estimates are nearing 60,000, and the quake is thought to have destroyed more than 5 million buildings.
Okay, make your guess. Is the world record for flight by a flying fish 10 seconds, 25 seconds, 45 seconds or 1 minute and 10 seconds? Watch this video to find out and see the fish in action.
Does it test your poop for ghosts and witches? Probably it would notice them, but primarily, it's meant to find hidden (occult) blood in yer stool!
Why do you want to know if there's blood in yer stool? Good question, and I can't answer that exactly. But if there was blood in my stool, I'd be concerned that it was a sign of a colorectal disease, like colon cancer.
Keep the red sauce out of yer dukes!
How did I learn about FOBT? By googling "fob" to see if it's a real word. It's a transitive verb!
At 9,500 years old, it took root just after the last Ice Age. It can tell us a lot about the climate at the time, and how the Earth has changed over thousands of years. (The previous oldest-known trees are North American bristle pines – at 5,000 years old, mere saplings to the Swedish spruce.)
Popular Mechanics lists 10 inventions that the world is waiting for. All we need is somebody to invent them. So let’s get cracking! (What? No jet pack?)
The man has suffered from throat cancer and breathing problems. He awoke in the middle of the night last week with his throat swollen shut. You know the rest.
Apparently Rambo lives in Omaha.
As the price of gasoline rises, people are finding alternative means of getting around.
Courtesy NASASatellite images from NASA of the Burma (or Myanmar) coastline show some pretty amazing pre- and post-cyclone images. It's now thought that the death toll from tropical cyclone Nargis could eventually exceed 100,000.
The cells of our bodies are constantly in motion. In fact, zap them with light and they vibrate, creating sound – much too faint to hear, but sensitive instruments can record the vibrations. Two biologists at the University of Manchester in England have found that healthy cells vibrate differently than cancerous cells. They are hoping to use this to develop new, less-invasive tests to diagnose cancer.
