Researchers found more than 75% Decline in Number of Big Meat Eaters

Researchers found more than 75% Decline in Number of Big Meat Eaters

According to a new study, there seems to be more than 75% decline in number of world's big carnivores. There are many majestic and beautiful animals in this world, but there are also some cruel humans on this planet who are killing those innocent animals.

The study, which has been published in the journal, Science, states that more than half of the former ranges of the big meat eaters have been collapsed. Government blames humans for this cause and has created global hotspot in decline of animal world.

US told to Boycott Canadian Seafood Producers not following norms

US told to Boycott Canadian Seafood Producers not following norms

The Los Angeles advocacy group Natural Resources Defense Council has asked that America to boycott Canadian seafood producers not following guidelines made to protect endangered North Atlantic right whale.

In an American report, lobster and crab fisheries have been blamed as well for the endangering the lives of North Atlantic right whale. The council was of the view that that fishing practices and regulations of lobster and crab fisheries are such that they increase the extinction risk of the specie.

Novel Method of Exfoliation Results in Higher Quality Monolayer Flakes

Novel Method of Exfoliation Results in Higher Quality Monolayer Flakes

The journal Nature Communications-published study has unveiled that a group of researchers from the National University of Singapore has come up with a method by which higher yielding and larger monolayer flakes can be formed in comparison to the current method.

The chemists through the new method can chemically exfoliate molybdenum disulfide crystals in to the good quality monolayer flakes. It has been found that the novel method-produced flakes can be used to made printable solution.

Novel Device to Generate Synchrotron X-rays Developed

Novel Device to Generate Synchrotron X-rays Developed

High-quality x-rays are needed for an array of applications like for advanced medical imaging. These x-rays are generated through the help of synchrotron sources, which are quite expensive.

Cost is one of the factors and the other issue is that they are not widely available. There are available at selected locations across the world. Recently, a research has taken place by a group of researchers from University of Nebraska-Lincoln.

Researchers Build Transit System through Combination of DNA with Proteins

The gradual advancement in the field of science and technology has led to the development of various techniques from past many years. Scientists have now discovered better ways to link nanotechnology with the synthetic biology.

New Species of Microbe Spotted in Spacecraft Clean Rooms

New Species of Microbe Spotted in Spacecraft Clean Rooms

According to a latest report, a new species of microbes have been detected in two of the cleanest places on the Earth. These microbes are named as Tersicoccus phoenicis and have been found in the spacecraft clean rooms in Florida and South America.

These findings show that not only humans are space friendly but creatures like these microbes are also space groupies.

How Genes Influence Development of Facial Features?

How Genes Influence Development of Facial Features?

Scientists are trying to figure out why faces of human beings are different from one another. Researchers have conducted a study for the same. And they have recognized thousands of small regions of DNA responsible for developing facial features. Also, they found that face shape can be subtly altered by tweaking to genetic material.

The study was published in Science. The new findings will help researchers understand reasons behind facial birth defects. The study was conducted on mice, but there is highly likelihood for the findings to be applicable for human face too.

Hum Life Expectancy: Determining Factor for Endangered and Invasive Species Increase

The journal Ecology and Society published study has uncovered that if a rise in human life expectancy will be witnessed then increase in invasive and endangered species will also be seen.

The study has been carried out by a group of researchers from University of California. In order to reach at the above given conclusion, study researchers have assessed those countries which comprises of 87% of the world population.

Hadfield’s Row with Doctors before His Space Career Started

Hadfield’s Row with Doctors before His Space Career Started

Recently, Chris Hadfield opened up on how he was kept from space due to a row.

Yes! The well-known former astronaut had got into a controversy with space-program doctors some months before he could become the International Space Station's commander.

He had thus denied tendering to surgery. The fight had come handy to scrubbing the Canadian legend from his now-eminent mission.

Details related to the impasse have been uncovered in a book by the former astronaut. The book could come at shelves on October 29 this year.

Humans Learnt Hand Control Before Bipedal Locomotion’s Evolution

Humans Learnt Hand Control Before Bipedal Locomotion’s Evolution

For a long time, a debate is taking place about when humans have learnt hand control. It now seems that the puzzle will finally get solved with the unveiling of this new research.

The study has been carried out by a group of researchers from the RIKEN Brain Science Institute. As per the study, early hominids have learnt ways to handle tools as well as finger dexterity during the time when they were still quadrupeds.
