From www.nature.com

The research coordinators who develop consent forms cannot predict how such data might be used in the future, nor can they guarantee that the data will remain protected. Many people argue that participants should have more control over how their data are used, and efforts are afoot to give them that control.

From evoanth.wordpress.com

The Out of Africa model (or “OoA,” as it is called by those particularly fond of vowels) argues modern humans arose in Africa ~200,000 years ago and eventually spread out of Africa and across the world.

The rainmakers

Saturday, June 23, 2012

From www.ft.com

Today, weather modification is seen as a sort of quasi science, located at the indistinct crossroads of meteorology, cloud physics and atmospheric research and hampered by a lack of evidence. But in a world of rapidly changing weather patterns, drought-plagued farmers continue to demand its implementation and scientists across the world continue to investigate it.

Physics Community Afire With Rumors of Higgs Boson Discovery

Friday, June 22, 2012

From www.wired.com

The latest Higgs rumors suggest nearly-there 4-sigma signals are turning up at both of the two separate LHC experiments that are hunting for the particle. As physicist Philip Gibbs points out on his blog, Vixra log, if each experiment is seeing a 4-sigma signal, then this is almost definitely the long-sought particle.

Is Dark Matter a Glimpse of a Deeper Level of Reality?

Tuesday, June 19, 2012
Category: Science

From blogs.scientificamerican.com

String theorists and other would-be unifiers of physics face a basic problem. The theories they seek to unify, quantum field theory and Einstein’s general theory of relativity, are well-grounded and well-tested, yet mutually incompatible.

Oceans of Ore: How an Undersea Caldera Eruption Created Jerome, Arizona

Monday, June 18, 2012

From blogs.scientificamerican.com

The bit that would become Jerome erupted busily near the southern coast of the nascent North American continent. Subduction zones gave rise to at least two volcanic island arcs: Jerome and Prescott. Rhyolitic and basaltic eruptions underwater constructed a submarine dome.

Will we ever clone a mammoth? Not Exactly Rocket Science Discover Magazine

From blogs.discovermagazine.com

Siberian ice might preserve the bodies of mammoths, but it is not kind to them. Ice crystals puncture cells, spilling out their contents. Even if the DNA inside the cell is not exposed, it tends to break down over time.

Microbes in extreme environment on South American volcanoes

Wednesday, June 13, 2012
Category: Science

From www.colorado.edu

Life gets little encouragement on the incredibly dry slopes of the tallest volcanoes in the Atacama region, where CU-Boulder Professor Steve Schmidt and his team collected soil samples. Much of the sparse snow that falls on the terrain sublimates back to the atmosphere soon after it hits the ground, and the soil is so depleted of nutrients that nitrogen levels in the scientists’ samples were below detection limits.
