ABORTION ANGUISH
ABORTION ANGUISH reported in BBC online news, 12 Dec 2005. Researchers at the University of Oslo surveyed 40 women who had suffered a miscarriage and 80 women who chose to have an abortion and compared the amount of mental stress suffered by each group. The results were (as quoted from the BBC article): "The Oslo team found that, after 10 days, 47.5% of women who had miscarried suffered from some degree of mental distress compared with 30% of the abortion group. The proportion of women who h...   Click here for more...

ABORTION VOTERS
ABORTION VOTERS a real factor, contends Director of Elliot Institute who stated (www.WorldNetDaily.com January 28th, 2004) "At least one of every four women voters has had an abortion, and most of these women consider it to be an ugly, painful memory," he said. "Most have many regrets about their abortions, even if they believe it to have been their 'only choice'. This is why they don't support the radical agenda of pro-abortion special interest groups. They've been there, done that, and hated i...   Click here for more...

ADAPTABLE BIRDS CATCH CATERPILLARS
ADAPTABLE BIRDS CATCH CATERPILLARS, as described in Science, vol 310, p304 and ScienceNOW 14 Oct 2005. Great tits are small European birds that breed each Spring and feed on caterpillars. As they need the most food when they are raising their young, it is useful for the birds they lay their eggs in time to hatch when caterpillars are most abundant. The time of caterpillar abundance varies each year depending how early the warm spring weather starts, so it is also useful if the birds are able to ...   Click here for more...

ADAPTABLE ORCHIDS USE EPIGENETICS

ADAPTABLE ORCHIDS USE EPIGENETICS, according to ScienceDaily, 10 Aug 2010 and Molecular Biology and Evolution, 2010; DOI: 10.1093/molbev/msq150. Scientists at Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew's Jodrell Laboratory are studying the effects of epigenetics in orchids to see how they may adapt to environmental changes.

These changes can be brought on by environmental influences and can enable plants of the same species to grow in diffe...   Click here for more...

ADJUSTABLE FOCUS GLASSES MADE

ADJUSTABLE FOCUS GLASSES MADE, as reported in news@nature and ScienceNOW 3 April 2006. Scientists at the University of Arizona, Tucson, have developed a liquid crystal lens that increases its magnifying power when a small electric current is applied to it. The lens could be used by people who currently need reading glasses or bifocal lenses to see close objects. The great advantage of such a lens is that people who need glasses for close work don’t need to change glasses, or rely on a small ...   Click here for more...

An Austrian court has rejected a claim by British woman Paula Stibbe to be granted legal guardianship of a chimpanzee. She believes the chimp deserves the same protection as a human child. The outcome of the case depended on whether great apes deserved human rights, and was backed by a UN organisation named the "Great Ape Survival Project". Ian Redmond ...   Click here for more...

AFTER ANNIE'S DEATH, CHARLES SET THE CHRISTIAN FAITH FIRMLY BEHIND HIM

"AFTER ANNIE'S DEATH, CHARLES SET THE CHRISTIAN FAITH FIRMLY BEHIND HIM" writes Randal Keynes, a great, great grandson of Charles Darwin in a biography of Darwin, "Annie's Box". Keynes' book, which focuses on Darwin's family life, was reviewed in Science, vol 296, p1974, 14 Jun 2002. The reviewer states, "Freed from the last vestige of belief that the world was perfect because God created it that way, Darwin continued without spiritual restraint to work out his theory on the origin of species...   Click here for more...

AGING BACTERIA
AGING BACTERIA could be useful to science, according to reports in news@nature, Science New and ScienceNOW, 1 Feb 2005. Because bacteria reproduce by dividing into two apparently identical cells, which in turn divide into two identical cells, they have been considered to be immortal. However, a recent study of E. coli bacteria indicates they undergo the same slowdown in cellular processes seen in other types of cells that undergo an aging process and eventually die. E coli bacteria are sh...   Click here for more...

AGING QUOTE

AGING QUOTE from a University of Minnesota course Bob Helfinstine undertook. He wrote: “In response to a question from a high school teacher who wanted some absolute proof for the age of the earth so he could 'put those creationists in their place'. University lecturer in nuclear geology, Dr. Calvin Alexander, made it clear that there is no proof for long ages. It is mostly speculation. After the class break, the high school teacher left and never returned. But Dr Alexander's often used stat...   Click here for more...

ALAN FEDUCCIA ON DINOSAUR FEATHERS
DINOSAUR EXPERT Alan Feduccia has just published a study of "dinosaur feathers." He says they are really just frayed bits of collagen. A report can be found at: http://www.unc.edu/news/archives/oct05/feducci100705.htm...   Click here for more...

ALASKA SEA ICE INCREASED
ALASKA SEA ICE INCREASED in March to greater than 1979 levels. A colleague in Alaska sent us images from the National Snow and Ice Data Center Boulder Colorado showing more sea ice along the coast of Alaska than in 1979, and asked did we read about this in the media? We hadn’t. Did you? Our colleague went on to comment: "Polar bears should have no problem at all". An archive of sea ice in the Arctic and Antarctic from the 1979 to present can be accessed at: Click here for more...

ALASKAN DINOS ENDURED POLAR WINTERS

ALASKAN DINOS ENDURED POLAR WINTERS, according to an article in ScienceDaily 11 April 2012. Researchers from the USA and South Africa have carried out microscopic studies of dinosaur bones found in North Slope Alaska. Most of the bones were of Edmontosaurus, a hadrosaur, and Pachyrhinosaurus, a horned dinosaur. Hadrosaurs are commonly known as “duck-billed dinosaurs” and were plant eaters. The researchers found the bones showed regular patterns of rapid growth and slow growth, s...   Click here for more...

ALLIGATORS USE BUOYANCY TANKS
ALLIGATORS USE BUOYANCY TANKS, according to an article in EurekAlert 13 Mar 2008 and ScienceNOW 14 Mar 2008. Alligators draw air into their lung using rib muscles and a large muscle called the diaphragmaticus which runs lengthways along its body cavity connecting the pelvis to the liver and lungs. T. J. Uriona of Utah noted that the diaphragmaticus in alligators worked in a similar way to a muscle that swimming frogs use to change the distribution of air in the lungs, using the shift in buoyancy...   Click here for more...

ALLOSAURUS SKULL OVER-ENGINEERED
ALLOSAURUS SKULL OVER-ENGINEERED according to a group of scientists who undertook a study on the skull on a large dinosaur with the unlikely name of Allosaurus fragilis. Their report of the detailed study of the biomechanics of the skull, published in Nature Vol. 409, p1033, 22 February 2001, concludes the dinosaur had a tough head but a weak bite.Allosaurus is traditionally portrayed as a predator in the same league as T. rex, but the research team concluded it could not have bitten its prey to...   Click here for more...

ALMOST NOBODY AGREES WITH HUGH ROSS

"ALMOST NOBODY AGREES WITH HUGH ROSS" writes William Lobdell in the Los Angeles Times, 23 Jun, 2001. "Armed with the latest discoveries in astronomy, physics and biology and backed by a small army of scholars, Ross is on a quest to scientifically prove that the Scriptures are true and that the God of the Bible is the designer of the universe. In doing so he has alienated both ends of the evolutionary debate, from fundamentalists to scientific advocates of Charles Darwin's theory of evolution....   Click here for more...

ALTERNATE WARMING AND COOLING
"ALTERNATE WARMING and cooling has occurred about every 27 yrs since 1470AD, well before atmospheric CO2 began to increase," wrote Geology Prof Don Easterbrook (2 Nov 2008), for Global Research. Easterbrook is Professor Emeritus of Geology at Western Washington University, Bellingham (USA) and has correlated historical records of climate cycles with data from the Greenland Ice Core, the Pacific and North Atlantic Oscillations and sunspots, and predicatively concludes the earth is entering a per...   Click here for more...

AMAZINGLY INTACT ANCIENT ARTHROPOD FOUND

AMAZINGLY INTACT ANCIENT ARTHROPOD FOUND according to reports in ScienceDaily 7 & 9 February 2011 and Geology, 2011; DOI: 10.1130/G31648.1. The exoskeletons or hard cuticles of arthropods are formed from chitin fibres embedded in structural proteins. Chitin is a modified carbohydrate made from long chains of a glucose derivative named N-acetylglucosamine. Proteins and carbohydrates are quickly degraded by chemical breakdown and destruction by microbes when an animal dies, so fossil sci...   Click here for more...

AMAZON DINOSAUR

AMAZON DINOSAUR intrigues scientists, as reported in BBC news 15 Jan 2004. Researchers from Federal University in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil have found a 10 metre (32feet) long fossilised sauropod believed to be 100 million years old. Many scientists have believed looking for fossils in Amazon rainforest would be a waste of time because the hot steamy conditions cause rapid decay of fossils. The fossil dinosaur was not alone. It was buried with fossil turtles, crocodiles, molluscs and fish.
