The rocks, which he named "Yooperlites" emit an eerie glow, appearing to be partially molten rock. Rintamaki, a gem and mineral dealer, made this discovery after hunting for rocks in Michigan's Upper Peninsula, bringing with … Continue reading Michigan Man Discovers Strange Glowing Rocks In The Upper Peninsula – Trevor Nace

Despite What Anti-Vaxxers Say, Vitamin K Shots Are Safe For Newborns – Lauren Strapagiel

Babies are born with a deficiency in vitamin K, an important factor for proper blood clotting. So most newborns are given a shot of vitamin K soon after birth to prevent potentially life-threatening hemorrhages in the brain or intestines. It's been standard practice since the early 1960s, but the rise in anti-vaccination rhetoric has also … Continue reading Despite What Anti-Vaxxers Say, Vitamin K Shots Are Safe For Newborns – Lauren Strapagiel

This is the case on my wall at this moment after I posted an article about the recent measles outbreak in Europe which shows 41,000 cases of measles recorded during first six months of 2018 surpassing the annual totals of every … Continue reading The Vaccination Debacle – Julian Vigo

The Largest Migration on Earth Is Vertical – Candice Gaukel Andrews

Every night on Earth, a great migration takes place. It’s bigger than the ones of caribou, wildebeest or zebras on land or Arctic terns in the air. But while this stupendous, nightly migration overshadows all the others, you’ve probably never heard of it. And even more surprising is the fact that it’s vertical. This upright, … Continue reading The Largest Migration on Earth Is Vertical – Candice Gaukel Andrews

The Simplest Solution To The Expanding Universe’s Biggest Controversy -Ethan Siegel

In 1915, Einstein's theory of General Relativity gave us a brand new theory of gravity, based on the geometrical concept of curved spacetime. Matter and energy told space how to curve; curved space told matter and energy how to move. By 1922, scientists had discovered that if you fill the Universe uniformly with matter and … Continue reading The Simplest Solution To The Expanding Universe’s Biggest Controversy -Ethan Siegel

The Nightmarishly Complex Wheat Genome Finally Yields to Scientists – Diana Gitig

Bread, like wine, is pivotal in Judeo-Christian rituals. Both products exemplify the use of human ingenuity to re-create what nature provides, and the fermentation they both require must have seemed nothing less than magical to ancient minds. When toasted, rubbed with garlic and tomato, doused with olive oil and sprinkled with salt like the Catalans … Continue reading The Nightmarishly Complex Wheat Genome Finally Yields to Scientists – Diana Gitig

Dark Energy May Be Incompatible With String Theory – Maciej Rebisz

Let’s All Take a Breath and Read That ‘Hothouse Earth’ Paper – Maddie Stone

If the past year of floods, fires, heat waves, and droughts are any indicator, climate change is going to be rough. But in case you weren’t already alarmed, a team of prominent climate scientists has penned a paper warning that just two degrees Celsius of human-caused warming could send us spiraling toward a “hothouse Earth”—one … Continue reading Let’s All Take a Breath and Read That ‘Hothouse Earth’ Paper – Maddie Stone

When The Weather Is Extreme, Is Climate Change To Blame – Laurel Wamsley

Dramatic weather events happened this past week in many parts of the Northern Hemisphere. There were wildfires in Greece, Scandinavia, and the Western U.S. Flooding followed record rainfalls in the Northeast. And dangerous heat waves settled over the Southwest, Japan, and the U.K. If it continues like this, 2018 could end up being one of … Continue reading When The Weather Is Extreme, Is Climate Change To Blame – Laurel Wamsley
