Earth is closer to the edge of Sun’s habitable zone – physicsworld.com

The Earth could be closer than previously thought to the inner edge of the Sun’s habitable zone, according to a new study by planetary scientists in the US and France. The research also suggests that if our planet moved out of the habitable zone, it could lead to a “moist greenhouse” climate that could kick-start further drastic changes to the atmosphere. A star’s habitable zone is the set of orbits within which a planet could have liquid water on its surface – and being within this zone is considered to be an important prerequisite for the development of life. The … Continue reading Earth is closer to the edge of Sun’s habitable zone – physicsworld.com

The Confiscation Scheme Planned for U.S. and U.K. Depositors – Truthdig

Confiscating the customer deposits in Cyprus banks, it seems, was not a one-off, desperate idea of a few Eurozone “troika” officials scrambling to salvage their balance sheets.

Researchers discover natural protein in fish that inhibits prostate cancer cell spread

(NaturalNews) University of Maryland School of Medicine scientists have identified a peptide, or protein, derived from Pacific cod which appears to inhibit prostate cancer and possibly other cancers from spreading — a process known as metastasis. This is extremely important because people who die from cancer usually do so when tumor cells invade the surrounding tissue and migrate into the nearby blood and lymph vessels. For example, prostate cancer typically metastasizes to the bones, lungs and liver. When cancer cells metastasize to other parts of the body, they grow new blood supplies and eventually overcome the person’s organ systems, causing … Continue reading Researchers discover natural protein in fish that inhibits prostate cancer cell spread

In that Wild West some people are Pat Garret, some Billy the Kid, but most are the cobblers and bartenders working in border towns ignorant or afraid of what’s out there in the wider world. That type of attitude is something that has not really evolved despite numerous incidents involving products—like Facebook – where the underbelly of the internet has been exposed for all to see. Often, people simply end up retreating and going … Continue reading Homeland Security to just watch every single thing we do on the web from now on / Scrape TV – The World on your side
