CLIMATE GAFFES UNDERMINE CONFIDENCE IN SCIENCE

CLIMATE GAFFES UNDERMINE CONFIDENCE IN SCIENCE, according to an article in the Telegraph 7 Mar 2010. The Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC) and the Royal Statistical Society (RSS) have issued statements saying the recent revelations from the e-mail and data leak from Climate Research Unit at the University of East Anglia could undermine the reputation of science as a whole. They are especially critical of Phil Jones and his colleagues failing to respond to legally binding requests for re...   Click here for more...

CLIMATE TAXES COMING

CLIMATE TAXES COMING as Aussie Prime Minister and atheist, Julia Gillard, is increasingly confident she can get her ‘first in the world’ carbon tax passed so man can control climate change.
We predict that if she is successful, the sum total effect on the climate will be zero, and the tax will prove to be a total misuse of taxpayers’ funds. We also recommend that a push needs to be made to legislate that politicians and political parties must be made persona...   Click here for more...

The British government is setting up a new programme of independent schools, known as Free Schools. According to the guidelines for groups applying to set up one of these schools: “The vision of the Free Schools programme is to raise standards by encouraging a range of new and diverse providers to play a much greater role in state educatio...   Click here for more...

COW-A-SAURUS FOUND
COW-A-SAURUS FOUND, according to reports in New Scientist News 15 Nov 2007 and PLoS One 21 Nov 2007. In 1997 a team led by Paul Sereno of the University of Chicago found a strange looking dinosaur in the Sahara, which they named "Nigersaurus taqueti". The creature's bones were rather fragile but Sereno and colleagues from various American Universities have studied the fossil in detail using CT scans as well as making casts. The animal had had extraordinary square jaws with 60 columns of t...   Click here for more...

CREATIONISM IN THE DOG HOUSE
CREATIONISM IN THE DOG HOUSE as "St Bernard study casts doubt on Creationism”, claims an article in Manchester University News and Medical News Net 24 Oct 2007. Kris Klingerberg of the Faculty of Life Sciences, Manchester University, has studied the skulls of 47 St Bernard dogs and looked at how they have changed over the 120 years since the breed was first defined. He found that modern dogs have broader skulls, a more pronounced ridge over the eyes and a steeper angle between the nose and foreh...   Click here for more...

CRETACEOUS RICE

CRETACEOUS RICE reported in an article in Nature Communications, DOI: 10.1038/ncomms1482, 20 September 2011. An international team of scientists studying Coprolites (fossil dung) from the Lameta Formation in India have found they contained phytoliths - microscopic deposits of silica found in the leaves of grasses. Each kind of grass has its own distinctively shaped phytoliths, so scientists can identify a plant from it phytoliths. In this case, the phytoliths along with fossilised frag...   Click here for more...

DARWINIAN SELECTION IN JAPANESE GUTS

DARWINIAN SELECTION IN JAPANESE GUTS, according to articles in ScienceNOW 7 Apr 2010 and ABC (Australia) News in Science 8 April 2010. Mirjam Czjzek of Station Biologique de Roscoff, an offshore research facility in France has been studying a bacterium named Zobellia galactanivorans to find out how bacteria feed off seaweed.

An international team of scientists has begun an enormous study of variation within the human genome entitled The “1000 Genomes Project”. A pilot study has now been completed, involving partial analysis of the genomes of 876 individuals. The study included two detailed analyses of father-mother-child trios. From these results the team estimated “the rate of de novo germl...   Click here for more...

DEVOLUTION DEBATE HOTS UP
DEVOLUTION DEBATE HOTS UP as opponents and many students take exception to our contention that the world isn’t evolving – it’s devolving. Both recent UK debates against Dr Steve Jones and Dr Jeff Ollerton met their claim that they had never heard of devolution, so it couldn’t be a scientific concept, so we must be making it up. The only place where devolution occurs is in British politics. A short check through the history books will establish that the word evolution already had wide use in poli...   Click here for more...

DOWNSIZING DOWNY MILDEW GENES

DOWNSIZING DOWNY MILDEW GENES reported in ScienceDaily 10 December 2010. An international team of scientists has sequenced the genome of a microscopic mould that causes a plant disease named downy mildew. The mould is called Hyaloperonospora arabidopsidi and can only live as a parasite on plants. The scientists then compared its genome with that of similar organisms such as Phytophthora species that can cause parasitic plant diseases, but can also live independently, feeding only on de...   Click here for more...

EVOLUTIONISTS CATCH UP WITH US

EVOLUTIONISTS CATCH UP WITH US (Nature, Vol. 406, p717, 17 Aug 2000). Biologists have compared the leg bones of Caudipteryx, one of the so called "feathered dinosaurs" with leg bones of running birds and dinosaurs, and came to the conclusion that it ran like a bird, not like a dinosaur. A report of the study in Science News Vol. 158, p119, 19 Aug 2000 refers to the fossil "as bird has-been and not a bird wanna-be".

ED.COM. When this fossil was first presented to the world as proof din...   Click here for more...

EVOLVING FLATFISH FOUND
EVOLVING FLATFISH FOUND, according to articles in New Scientist, 13 July 2008, p11, and Nature, vol 454, p209, 10 July 2008. Flatfish, such as the sole and flounder, have both their eyes on one side of their body. This means they can lie on their sides on the bottom of the sea and watch what’s going on above them with both eyes. When they are hatched they have eyes on the opposite sides of the head, just like any other fish, but as they mature and take up their adult habit of lying on their side...   Click here for more...

EVOLVING INTO OBLIVION
EVOLVING INTO OBLIVION, according to an article in ScienceNOW 21Sep 2006. Male field crickets have a series of grooves on their wings, which they rub together to make a characteristic chirping sound in order to attract a mate. Unfortunately the chirping sound also attracts a parasitic fly that has recently moved into the Hawaiian Islands where the "chirping" cricket population has been rapidly declining. In 2003 ecologists at a research station on the Island of Kauai noticed that although there ...   Click here for more...

EYE SPOTS ATTRACT FEMALES
EYE SPOTS ATTRACT FEMALES, as reported in ScienceNOW, 29 June 2005. Many butterflies have large spots on their wings that resemble eyes, complete with a white reflective spot in the middle of the black "pupil" to reinforce the effect of a real eye. These are generally explained as a means of scaring off predators, but biologists at the University of New York, Buffalo, noticed that the spots are just as prominent on the inner dorsal wings of many butterflies and therefore would not be visible to ...   Click here for more...

FANTOM PROJECT FINDS GENETIC WORDS
"FANTOM" PROJECT FINDS GENETIC WORDS, reported in the Courier Mail 3 Sep 2005 and Science vol. 309, p1559, 2 Sep 2005. A group of scientists working in Australia, Japan and Greece has studied the mouse genome to see how genetic information is organised and used within cells. The project, called FANTOM, for Function Annotation of the Mouse, looked for beginnings and ends of genes and how they were arranged in the DNA strands. The mouse genome sequence was completed in 2002 but that ...   Click here for more...

FEATHERED FOSSIL FOXES FEATHERSAURUS FOLLOWERS

FEATHERED FOSSIL FOXES FEATHERSAURUS FOLLOWERS as American scientists claim to have identified a feathered reptile older than the dinosaurs, casting doubt that dinosaurs are birds’ ancestors. The fossil, named Longisquama insignis, which means "long, flat marks", is supposedly late Triassic or 220 million years old, which is 75 million years older than alleged feathered dinosaurs. It had been lying for decades, wrongly labelled, in a drawer at a Moscow museum. Originally found 1969 in ...   Click here for more...

FIRST AMERICAN FOOTPRINTS SHOCK
FIRST AMERICAN FOOTPRINTS SHOCK reports BBC News, 5 July, 2005. "Human settlers made it to the Americas 30,000 years earlier than previously thought, according to new evidence. A team of scientists came to this controversial conclusion by dating human footprints preserved by volcanic ash in an abandoned quarry in Mexico. They say the first Americans may have arrived by sea, rather than by foot. The currently accepted theory is that the continent's early settlers arrived around 11,000 years ago, ...   Click here for more...

FIRST HYBRID SHARKS FOUND

FIRST HYBRID SHARKS FOUND according to a report in ABC News (Australia) 4 January 2012. Marine biologists studying fish along the east coast of Australia have made the “unprecedented” discovery that common black-tip sharks are interbreeding with Australian black-tip sharks to produce shark hybrids. According to Jennifer Ovenden from the Queensland Department of Primary Industries and Fisheries, “It was unprecedented because hybridisation between sharks in the wild has never been reported befo...   Click here for more...
