fox news - French startup launches hydrogen-powered bicyles A French start-up has become the first company to start factory production of hydrogen-powered bicycles for use in corporate or municipal fleets.Pragma Industries, which is based in Biarritz, France and makes fuel cells for military use, has sold some 60 hydrogen-powered bikes to French municipalities including Saint Lo, Cherbourg, Chambery and Bayonne.At about 7,500 euros per bike, and at least 30,000 euros for a charging station, the bikes are too expensive for the consumer market, but Pragma is working to cut that to 5,000 euros, which would bring their price in line with premium electric bikes.It can run for about 100 kilometers on a charge (62 miles), and recharges in just 2 minutes. Conventional Li-ion electric bikes, on the other hand, only achieve half this range and take about 4 hours to fill up again. It holds 2L of compressed H2 Gas, and uses 150 Wh Li-Ion batteries. According to the firm, it can provide electrical assistance for a top speed of up to 25 km/hr (15mph).'Many others have made hydrogen bike prototypes, but we are the first to move to series production,' said founder and chief executive Pierre Forte.The firm's Alpha bike runs for about 100 km (62 miles) on a two-litre tank of hydrogen, a range similar to an electric bike, but a refill takes only minutes while e-bikes take hours to charge.One kilo of hydrogen holds about 600 times more energy than a one-kilo lithium battery.Pragma also sells refueling stations that produce hydrogen through the electrolysis of water as well cheaper tank-based stations.The bikes, which look and ride the same as any normal bicycle, are aimed at bike-rental operators, delivery companies, and municipal or corporate bicycle fleets with intensive usage.Pragma, which produced 100 hydrogen bikes last year, plans to manufacture 150 this year.It has received demand from Norway, the United States, Spain, Italy and Germany, Forte said.With bike's range limited by the size of the hydrogen tank, Pragma is also working on a bike that will convert plain water into hydrogen aboard the bike, using a chemical reaction between water and aluminium or magnesium powder to produce hydrogen gas.'In the next two-three years we want to enter the consumer market and massively increase the scale of our operations,' said Forte.

Clay seal found in Jerusalem may be from Prophet Isaiah  - fox news
Clay seal found in Jerusalem may be from Prophet Isaiah - fox news A 2,700-year-old clay seal found in Jerusalem may bear the 'signature' of the biblical prophet Isaiah.Researchers  believe the Hebrew script impressed into the clay once read 'Belonging to Isaiah the prophet.'If it did, the clay would be the first direct evidence of the existence Isaiah outside of the Bible.Archaeologists discovered the damaged clay seal during excavations at the Ophel, and area in East Jerusalem in between the 'City of David' archaeological site and the 'Temple Mount'.According to the Hebrew bible, the Torah, Isaiah's call to prophecy roughly coincides with the beginning of the westward expansion of the Assyrian empire.He was a counselor to Judean king Hezekiah and encouraged him to fight against the Assyrian army that arrived in Jerusalem in 701 BC.Archaeologists found the impression of a King Hezekiah seal 10 feet (3 meters) from the Isaiah impression.Isaiah's name ('Yesha'yahu' in Hebrew) is visible on the seal, however damage to the seal has meant that archaeologists are unsure as to whether it refers to the Biblical Prophet Isaiah, or someone else with the same name who lived during that time.'We appear to have discovered a seal impression, which may have belonged to the prophet Isaiah, in a scientific, archaeological excavation,' Eilat Mazar, an archaeology professor at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, said in an announcement in the Biblical Archaeology Review, which will publish the study associated with the research.If researchers are able to conf Source: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-5421983/Seal-impression-signature-Prophet-Isaiah.html?ITO=1490&ns_mchannel=rss&ns_campaign=1490

fox news -  Ancient DNA reveals how first humans arrived in America
fox news - Ancient DNA reveals how first humans arrived in America The DNA of a six-week-old Native American infant who died 11,500 years ago has rewritten the history of the Americas.The young girl's genes reveal the first humans arrived on the continent 25,000 years ago - much earlier than some studies claim - before splitting into three Native American groups.This is the first time that direct genetic traces of the earliest Native Americans have been identified.The girl belonged to a previously unknown population of ancient people in North America known as the 'Ancient Beringians.'This small Native American group resided in Alaska and died out around 6,000 years ago, researchers claim.It is widely accepted that the earliest settlers crossed from what is now Russia into Alaska via an ancient land bridge spanning the Bering Strait which was submerged at the end of the last Ice Age.Issues such as whether there was one founding group or several, when they arrived, and what happened next have been the subject of extensive debate.Some scientists previously hypothesized about multiple migratory waves over the land bridge as recent as 14,000 years ago.But the new study shows that this migration occurred in one wave, with sub-divisions of Native American groups forming later on.It also shows that a previously undiscovered group named the 'Ancient Beringians' formed as part of this split, taking the known number of ancestral Native American groups from two to three.'We didn't know this population existed,' said study coauthor Professor Ben Potter, an anthropologist at the University of Alaska Fairbanks.'These data also provide the first direct evidence of the initial founding Native American population, which sheds new light on how these early populations were migrating and settling throughout North America.'The international team of researchers, led by scientists from the Universities of Cambridge and Copenhagen, studied the full genome of an ancient Native American infant.Named Xach'itee'aanenh t'eede gay, or Sunrise Child-girl, by the local Native community, the young girl's remains were found at the Upward Sun River archaeological site in Alaska in 2013.Although the child had lived around 11,500 years ago, long after people first arrived in the region, her genetic information did not match either of the two recognised branches of early Native Americans.These are referred to as Northern, residing mostly in what is now Alaska and Canada, and Southern, residing mostly in what is now the United States.The girl appeared to have belonged to an entirely distinct Native American population, which they called Ancient Beringians.Further analyses showed the group were separated from the same founding population as the Northern and Southern Native American groups, but that they separated from that population earlier in its history.'The Ancient Beringians diversified from other Native Americans before any ancient or living Native American population sequenced to date,' said study lead author Professor Eske Willerslev, from the Source: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-5229261/Ancient-DNA-rewrites-American-history.html?ITO=1490&ns_mchannel=rss&ns_campaign=1490

Researchers find 'neural clock' that lets brain keep track of time  - fox news
Researchers find 'neural clock' that lets brain keep track of time - fox news The illustration shows the episodic time from the experience of a 4-hour-long ski trip up and down a steep mountain, including events that alter the skier's perception of time. The idea is that experienced time is event-dependent and may be perceived as faster or slower than clock time.The newly discovered neural record of experienced time is in the lateral entorhinal cortex (LEC) in green. Next to the LEC is the MEC, the brain's seat for space (not depicted). Next to the MEC is the hippocampus, the structure in which information from the time and space networks come together to form episodic memories.

fox news - WHO WAS HANS JONATAN? Hans Jonatan was born into slavery on the island of St Croix in 1784.His story rose to international fame after the publication of the biography, The Man Who Stole Himself.While there are some uncertainties about his father, it’s thought he was a white Dane named Hans Gram, who was a secretary on one of the island’s plantations.Eventually, the plantation owner returned to Denmark and took the two with him – but, slavery was illegal in the country.Jonatan fought for the Danish navy and later declared himself a free man, according to New Scientist.After a court battle, however, a judge ruled in 1802 that he should be sent back to the Danish West Indies to return to slavery.To avoid this fate, Jonatan escaped to Iceland, where he was greeted ‘with open arms,’ Kári Stefánsson of deCODE Genetics in Reykjavik, Iceland, told New Scientist.The whereabouts of Hans Jonatan’s remains are unknown – but, using DNA samples from 182 of his descendants, geneticists with deCODE have traced his family back West Africa, from a region that covers Benin, Nigeria, and Cameroon.

Foal of extinct horse frozen in Siberian permafrost for 40,000 years - fox news Scroll down for video  Amazing pictures have been released of a foal (pictured) taking its first bow after being frozen in the Siberian permafrost for 40,000 years The young horse is 9.3 hands (37 inches) tall and was only two months old when it perished Share this article Share It has today been revealed by scientists to the media in Yakutsk, Russia, the world's coldest city The prehistoric foal is part of a breed of extinct horses dubbed the Lenskave, or Lena horse The researchers said: 'The foal has completely preserved dark-brown hair, its tail and mane, as well as all internal organs. There are no visible wounds on its body' The brown foal was found during a Russian-Japanese paleontological expedition at the Batagai depression in Verkhoyansky district between 9-14 August The animal probably died by falling into a 'natural trap', possibly drowning in a melting ice pool, said Grigory Savvinov, deputy head of Russia's North-Eastern Federal University The foal was found by accident and was in excellent condition when discovered. Analysis proved it was the extinct species and had been trapped in the permafrost for around 40,000 years  Extinct Lenskaya Horse (pictured) look similar to the horses that roam the region today but are not genetically related to the modern-day inhabitants  Late Pleistocene age fauna with woolly mammoths and Lenskaya horses was vastly different to today. The gash in the tundra where the foal was found was caused by the Soviets, who cleared forest here, but it is now being enlarged and shaped by climate change Locals in the remote Yakutia region where the foal was found see the Batagai depression or crater (pictured) as superstitious, and call know it as the 'gateway to the underworld' The young horse was buried at a level of around 100 feet (30 metres) in the tadpole-shaped depression which is a 'megaslump' one kilometre long and around half a mile (800 metres) wide Scientists stumbled across the immaculately preserved youngster when they were working on the remains of woolly mammoths It was dug from its icy grave in the Batagai depression or crater - nicknamed the 'Mouth of Hell' earlier this month The specimen was immaculately preserved and it is hoped the specimen will be able to restore picture of the foal's environment The foal was completely preserved by permafrost and the researchers are hoping to study its bowel contents to understand the foal's diet more videos 1 2 3 Watch video Face of an indigenous Canary Islander recreated by student Watch video Animations show the Arctic's sea ice breaking up near Greenland Watch video Lobster krill fights Gentoo penguin with small pincers Watch video Sony's adorable Aibo always has a day to play Watch video Dolphins help defend humpback whale and calf from male humpbacks Watch video Victim's father weeps as husband is charged with killing family Watch video Rezum treatment treats BPH by injecting steam into the p Source: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-6091395/Foal-extinct-horse-species-frozen-Siberian-permafrost-40-000-years.html?ns_mchannel=rss&ito=1490&ns_campaign=1490

Nasa satellite spots blue clouds swirling over Antarctica  - fox news
Nasa satellite spots blue clouds swirling over Antarctica - fox news The clouds give off a shocking blue haze when ice crystals fixed to tiny particles of 'meteor dust' high in the atmosphere reflect sunlight.The unusual phenomena are called 'noctilucent clouds' and occur twice a year.Nasa captured footage of the noctilucent clouds over Antarctica. They are created by rising water vapour in the atmosphere which forms on the dust left in the high-atmosphere by meteorsNoctilucent clouds, also called polar mesospheric clouds, form between 47-53 miles above Earth's surface (76-85 km), according to Nasa. Here, water vapour freezes into clouds of ice crystals, which are illuminated when the sun is below the horizon. They are seeded by debris from disintegrating meteors, giving them a 'shocking' blue hue when they reflect sunlight.  The clouds are formed during the summer of both the northern and southern hemispheres.The cloud groups are formed 50 miles (80 km) above the surface of the Earth and are being directly observed by Nasa's Aeronomy of Ice in the Mesosphere, or AIM, spacecraft.Known as 'night-shining' clouds, they are formed during the summer of both the northern and southern hemispheres, according to Nasa.The clouds form during the summers due to the high humidity and the increased amount of moisture in the air.During these times, it is also the coldest place on Earth, hitting temperatures as low as -135°C  (-210°F) as a result of air flow patterns.'The current season began on Nov. 19th,' says Cora Randall, a member of the AIM science team Source: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-5249771/Nasa-satellite-spots-blue-clouds-swirling-Antarctica.html?ITO=1490&ns_mchannel=rss&ns_campaign=1490

Thousands of Mayan pyramids and palaces found in Guatemala  - fox news
Thousands of Mayan pyramids and palaces found in Guatemala - fox news More than 60,000 previously unknown Mayan structures - including pyramids, palaces and causeways - have been revealed under jungle foliage in Guatemala in what has been hailed as a 'major breakthrough'.Researchers used laser technology to look beneath the forest canopy in northern Peten - an area close to already-known Mayan cities.The lasers revealed the 'breathtaking' remains of a sprawling pre-Columbian 'megalopolis' that was far more complex than most specialists had ever believed.The discovery suggests that Central America supported a civilization that was, at its peak 1,500 years ago, more advanced than ancient Greek and Chinese cultures.The landscape may have been home to up to 15 million individuals and the abundance of defensive walls, ramparts and fortresses suggests that warfare was rife throughout their existence and not just at the end.'I think this is one of the greatest advances in over 150 years of Maya archaeology,' said Stephen Houston, Professor of Archaeology and Anthropology at Brown University told the BBC.'I know it sounds hyperbolic but when I saw the [Lidar] imagery, it did bring tears to my eyes.'Scientists made the discovery using Lidar technology, which is short for 'light detection and ranging',Aircraft with a LiDAR scanner produced three-dimensional maps of the surface by using light in the form of pulsed laser linked to a GPS system.This technique allowed researchers to map outlines of what they describe as dozens of newly discovered Maya cities Source: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-5343567/Thousands-Mayan-pyramids-palaces-Guatemala.html?ITO=1490&ns_mchannel=rss&ns_campaign=1490

Scotland's 'melted stones' mystery solved: Archaeologists say giant fires fused them together  - fox
Scotland's 'melted stones' mystery solved: Archaeologists say giant fires fused them together - fox news Researchers have solved one of the Scottish Highland's oldest mysteries: how an ancient fort was burned at such high temperatures that parts of it melted and fused together.Dun Deardail in Glen Nevis, built in around 500 BC, has long been the source of conspiracy theories, with some claiming that Iron Age people used an ancient superweapon to melt the stones.A number of experiments were carried out over multiple years trying to discover how temperatures were hot enough to fuse stones together in a process called vitrification.Now, archaeologists from Forest Enterprise Scotland and researchers from Stirling University believe a timber superstructure supported by the ramparts was set on fire, with the blaze burning down on the stones and heating them up 'like an oven', Matt Ritchie, an archaeologist with Forestry Enterprise Scotland, told the Scotsman.Writer and broadcaster Arthur C Clarke had previously said the vitrified forts around the country were the biggest mystery he had encountered, even speculating that the Iron Age people would have needed lasers to melt the stones.Ritchie told the publication said tests had shown blocks of molten stone were formed in spaces without oxygen and likely caused by a 'tremendous heat from above'.He also added that the structure may once have stored grain.'This is really exciting – not only do we know have a better understanding of how vitrification occurred, but we can also know visualize these hill forts as citadels, with roofed rampart walls many meters high,' Ritchie said.'Of course, the mystery of why the forts were burned remains unsolved. Was it accidental, or intended? Was it an act of destruction, by a victorious foe, or an act of ceremony, perhaps on the death of a revered king? We may never know,' he said.Other similar forts are found in parts of France, Germany, Wales and Ireland.

Marmokreb crayfish can clown themselves  - fox news
Marmokreb crayfish can clown themselves - fox news Most crayfish reproduce by having sex.But an all-female species of mutant crayfish has managed to evolve the ability to clone itself, without the need for a male.Known as marmokrebs, or marbled crayfish, the species' remarkable cloning ability has led it to 'multiply out of control'.Now scientists are warning the female crustaceans are beginning to take over the world.While it may sound like the plot of the horror movie, they say there may be some benefits to the strange crayfish invasion; the crayfish’s unusual evolution could also provide a strategy to tackle cancer, that clones itself in a similar way.In a new study published in the journal Nature Ecology and Evolution, researchers sequenced the genomes of 11 marbled crayfish.All 11 creatures had nearly identical genomes, suggesting they were clones.Researchers believe these mutant creatures began evolving by accident almost 25 years ago, after a German aquarium hobbyist bought a crayfish that he was told was a 'Texas crayfish'.But he was surprised when his marbled crayfish produced hundreds of eggs at a time and grew large.He gave away the crayfish, and they eventually ended up being sold in pet shops in Germany.But owners soon began noticing that their Marmokrebs were reproducing without the need to mate, and all offspring were female, fertile and clones of their mother.Once the new species of crayfish evolved, male slough crayfish could no longer produce offspring with the female Marmokrebs, even though the male slough Source: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-5357103/Marmokreb-crayfish-clown-themselves.html?ITO=1490&ns_mchannel=rss&ns_campaign=1490

Experts scan for hidden chambers in King Tutankhamun tomb  - fox news
Experts scan for hidden chambers in King Tutankhamun tomb - fox news Egypt's Antiquities Ministry says archaeologists are starting radar scans of the tomb of famed pharaoh Tutankhamun in the southern city of Luxor.The ministry said Thursday the scans will be carried out over a week to check for the existence of any hidden chambers behind the tomb.Egypt carried out previous scans as part of the quest but the findings were inconclusive.The news follows more than two years of speculation after British Egyptologist Dr Nicholas Reeves said he found signs of a hidden doorway in King Tut's tomb.At the time, he said one of the secret rooms could be the burial place of the Pharaoh's stepmother Queen Nefertiti.The tomb of King Tut, who ruled Egypt more than 3,000 years ago, was discovered in 1922 in the Valley of the Kings, located on the west bank of the Nile river in Luxor.For many, Tut embodies ancient Egypt's glory because his tomb was packed with the glittering wealth of the rich 18th Dynasty from 1569 to 1315 BC.Researchers are using ground penetrating radar (GPR) to scan the pharaoh's chamber for the existence of two chambers rumoured to be hidden behind its walls.The search is being led by the  Polytechnic University Turin, Italy, and will be the third time in the past two years researchers have looked for the lost chamber.'It will be a rigorous scientific work and will last several days, if not weeks,' Franco Porcelli, the project's director and a professor of physics at the department of applied science and technology of the Polytechnic Univer Source: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-5341599/Egypt-starts-radar-scans-secret-rooms-Tuts-tomb.html?ITO=1490&ns_mchannel=rss&ns_campaign=1490

fox news -  Remote Greek island was once covered in complex monuments
fox news - Remote Greek island was once covered in complex monuments A remote Greek island known as the 'world's oldest maritime sanctuary' was once covered in complex monuments built using stone dug up six miles (10 km) away.Excavations around the island of Keros have revealed the technological prowess of the small group of Greeks who lived there 4,500 years ago.Researchers found the remains of massive terraced walls and giant gleaming structures on a tiny islet that was once attached to Keros.The structures were built using 1,000 tons of stone, turning the headland, which measures just 500 ft (150 m) across, into a single, giant monument.The researchers say the remains make the island one of the most impressive archaeological sites of the Aegean Sea during the Early Bronze Age.Until recently, the island of Keros, located in the Cyclades, south of Naxos, was known for ritual activities dating 4,500 years ago involving broken marble figurines.  Now new excavations show that the headland of Dhaskalio, which was once attached to Keros but is now a tiny islet because of sea level rise, was almost entirely covered by remarkable monuments. The headland was naturally shaped like a pyramid, and the skilled builders of Dhaskalio enhanced this shape by creating a series of massive terrace walls. These made it look more like a stepped pyramid. On the flat surfaces formed by the terraces, the builders used stone imported from Naxos to construct impressive, gleaming structures. The research team calculated that more than 1,000 tons of stone were imported, and that almost every possible space on the island was built on. This gave the impression of a single large monument jutting out of the sea. The complex is the largest known in the Cyclades at the time.Researchers at the University of Cambridge studied the settlement of Dhaskalio, an islet that was once part of a known prehistoric sanctuary at Keros.They say the archaeological remains show the remote region to be a more imposing and densely occupied series of structures than was previously believed.Until recently, the island of Keros, located in the Cyclades, south of the island of Naxos, was known for ritual activities dating 4,500 years ago involving broken marble figurines.The island has previously been listed by Cambridge researchers as the 'world's oldest maritime sanctuary'.Now new excavations show that the headland of Dhaskalio, which was once attached to Keros but is now a tiny islet because of sea level rise, was almost entirely covered by remarkable monuments.The constructions, which once sat close to the sanctuary at Keros, were built using stone brought painstakingly from Naxos, six miles (10 km) away.Study coauthor Professor Colin Renfrew suggested the islet, with its narrow causeway to the main island, 'may have become a focus because it formed the best natural harbour on Keros, and had an excellent view of the north, south and west Aegean'.The headland was naturally shaped like a pyramid, and the skilled builders of Dhaskalio enhanced this shape by creating a Source: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-5280385/Remote-Greek-island-covered-complex-monuments.html?ITO=1490&ns_mchannel=rss&ns_campaign=1490

BIG SHOT OF THE WEEK: GlaxoSmithKline boss Emma Walmsley  - fox news
BIG SHOT OF THE WEEK: GlaxoSmithKline boss Emma Walmsley - fox news When Emma Walmsley was growing up, her family would hold an annual debate as to where they should spend their summer holidays.Little Emma would present her choice, listing the advantages, and pointing out why the other options were rubbish. She always won.Walmsley’s early aptitude for winning people over through well-researched analysis has set the tone for much of her soaring career. She is chief executive of GlaxoSmithKline, the £80bn pharmaceuticals giant. It is a role which makes her, at just 48, the most powerful businesswoman in Britain, if not the world.Steely, sharp-as-a-tiger’s tooth, with a slightly haughty head girl demeanour, what Walmsley lacks in warmth she more than makes up for in gritty determination.‘Nice but utterly ruthless,’ is how one ex-colleague described her to me this week, with skin as impenetrable as sheet metal.Scour You Tube and you’ll find a wonderfully combative performance from her years ago on BBC’s Watchdog, presenter Anne Robinson’s customary exocets bouncing off her like ping-pong balls.As well as being in charge of 100,000 employees worldwide, for which she could earn as much £8.8m this year, Walmsley is also the mother of four children.Husband David Owen is a former businessman whom she met at a party in her mid-20s. Friends say she spent the morning after their first meeting avoiding his calls, reluctantly relenting to his requests for a date almost through guilt.

We haggled car insurance quote down by 67% - here's how  - fox news
We haggled car insurance quote down by 67% - here's how - fox news I had a moment while sitting on the sofa earlier this week when I thought: I'm sure we bought our car around two years ago today – is the insurance up soon?The main driver of our Ford Fiesta, my partner Danielle, uses the car daily for a short trip to work in Essex whereas I undertake most of the weekend leisure driving.Like millions, we're usually prompted to renew our insurance by the annual quote coming through the door, gasping at the price and then finding ourselves a better deal.However, this year, for whatever reason, the renewal quote didn't land on the mat.Upon checking some old paperwork my hunch was correct – and the insurance was due to run out on Friday.Danielle telephoned the insurer – the same one she has used since passing her test nearly 15 years ago – and asked how much the car cover would be for the next year.The answer? Nearly £1,100. This is what would have automatically been deducted from her account if we didn't intervene.This is more than double the price of last year - for a driver who has only made one claim in her life, when her trusty Citroen Saxo was stolen from outside a flat we used to rent in London and found written off the following day.Aghast, Danielle asked what had pushed the price up. The staff member on the other end said car insurance costs were going up by an average of 14 per cent this year – and that a renewal letter had been sent.Sure, average increases in the industry could explain a rise of around £60 - but not more than £600.Dani Source: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/money/cars/article-5421961/We-haggled-car-insurance-quote-67-heres-how.html?ITO=1490&ns_mchannel=rss&ns_campaign=1490

Industrious beavers have wowed scientists with their incredible dams  - fox news
Industrious beavers have wowed scientists with their incredible dams - fox news As Britain has baked in the sun this summers, with reservoirs running low, the beaver-ridden region has remained lush and full of life thanks to the beavers' large dams Share this article Share 20 shares The beaver engineered dams and lagoons provide the perfect habitat for ducks, coots, moorhens, dragonflies, fish and much more. The fish provide a food source for birds such as heron and kingfisher Scientists from the University of Exeter, who are carefully monitoring the site have described it as 'quite possibly the heaviest engineered wild beaver site in England and amongst the most impacted of all sites in Britain'. Pictured is a beaver dam built in the county The beaver dams mean typical Devonshire run-off streams which usually leach nutrients from the landscape when they flood have had their destructive flood flow stopped The beavers are nocturnal animals. They do most of their dam building at night but can often be seen at dawn and dusk. They feed on vegetation surrounding their pools together with bark Dr Alan Puttock, associate research fellow at the University of Exeter, said: 'Beaver engineering at Combeshead, particularly the building of dams has transformed the environment, increasing water storage and creating diverse wetlands' A colony of wild beavers in Devon is exciting scientists with their unique ability to build enormous dams, some stretching as long as 100 feet (30 metres). Image shows beaver at the Coombeshead estate near Percy's Hotel in Devon Across nearly 100 acres of Devon's Coombeshead Valley a group of two dozen or more animals have built a huge network of 14 pools and dams, some almost 30 metres in length.

Facebook calls out Google, Amazon and Twitter for also harvesting user data  - fox news
Facebook calls out Google, Amazon and Twitter for also harvesting user data - fox news Facebook wants users to know that it's not the only one tracking their every move on the internet.The social media giant pointed a finger at Google, Amazon, Twitter and other platforms for using many of the same data collection practices that some privacy advocates are referring to as invasive.In a blog post published Monday, the firm described in depth all the ways it gathers information on you around the web -- even if you're not a Facebook member or are logged out of your account.Facebook has been feeling the heat ever since it was revealed last month that more than 87 million users' data had been harvested without their knowledge.Now, Facebook wants to make it clear that it's not the only platform collecting data on its users as they browse other websites.'Twitter, Pinterest and LinkedIn all have similar Like and Share buttons to help people share things on their services,' David Baser, Facebook's product management director, wrote in a blog post.'Google has a popular analytics service. And Amazon, Google and Twitter all offer login features''These companies — and many others — also offer advertising services. In fact, most websites and apps send the same information to multiple companies each time you visit them,' Baser added.He noted that Google collects similar information from users when they visit other websites, such as IP addresses and cookies, as well as data on your internet browser and operating system.'When you see a YouTube video on a site that's not YouTube, it tells your browser to request the video from YouTube. YouTube then sends it to you,' Baser said.In recent weeks, Google has also been in focus as it's been revealed that the firm often tracks every website you click on, your location, as well as every file you've uploaded to Google Drive -- even if they've been deleted.Facebook and other firms have defended these practices by saying it helps them show users more relevant ads.This isn't pure altruism, however, because if a user clicks on Facebook ads more often, brands are likely to buy more ads to run on the site.In the blog post, the firm breaks down how it tracks users that visit a website with Facebook's services installed, such as a 'Like' or 'Share' button.Whenever a user visits a website that has a Facebook plugin installed, their browser sends and receives data, such as their IP address, cookies, etc., that enables content or advertisements to appear on a webpage.Facebook receives this information regardless of whether the user has or doesn't have a Facebook account because other apps and websites can't tell the difference, according to the firm.Many websites make use of Facebook's analytics service, which provides information on users that visit a site or app, as well as the firm's controversial 'Pixel' tool, which is software code that is used to track which users visit a site, what they click on and how long they visit the site for.Facebook reiterated that it doesn't sell the user data that it collects, but that Source: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-5626675/Facebook-calls-Google-Amazon-Twitter-harvesting-user-data.html?ITO=1490&ns_mchannel=rss&ns_campaign=1490

Neolithic farmers were wiped out by ‘Beaker people’  - fox news
Neolithic farmers were wiped out by ‘Beaker people’ - fox news Stonehenge has a proud place in Britain's history as one of the wonders of the world and the best-known prehistoric monument in Europe.But, according to a major new study, modern-day Britons are barely related to the ingenious Neolithic farmers who built the monument 5,000 years ago.Instead the British are related to the 'Beaker people' who travelled from modern-day Holland and all but wiped out Stonehenge's creators.The findings are 'absolutely sort of mind-blowing,' said archaeologist Barry Cunliffe, a professor emeritus at the University of Oxford.'They are going to upset people, but that is part of the excitement of it.'Many experts believed it was just Beaker pottery-making and culture which was exported to Britain between 4,400 and 4,700 years ago - not the people themselves.But the new evidence comes from DNA analysis of 400 prehistoric skeletons, some from after Stonehenge and others born before it was created.The genes of these ancient people provide enough clues to determine that Beakers travelled here from Holland and took over in a few centuries.They replaced 90 per cent of the Neolithic farmers who built the monument and had lived here for 1,500 years.The creators of Stonehenge appeared Mediterranean, with olive-hued skin, dark hair and eyes.But the Beaker people were more like white modern British people, with fair skin, lighter hair and eyes.The Beaker people may have killed off the ancient engineers behind Stonehenge by bringing the bubonic plague to Britain.D Source: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-5413607/Neolithic-farmers-wiped-Beaker-people.html?ITO=1490&ns_mchannel=rss&ns_campaign=1490

The grave was found in an olive grove near the town of Ierapetra Pictured is the top half of a Minoan fresco commonly known as the 'Prince of the Lilies'. While both Minoans and Mycenaeans had both 'first farmer' and 'eastern' genetic origins, Mycenaeans traced an additional minor component of their ancestry to ancient inhabitants of Eastern Europe and northern Eurasia Bull-leaping shown in a Minoan fresco was a skill that would have been prized by a military elite.  Swords, metal battle axes, long bladed spears, shields and possibly even armour were brought to Europe by the Minoans who ruled Crete more videos 1 2 3 Watch video Face of an indigenous Canary Islander recreated by student Watch video Drought reveals 15th century 'hunger stones' in the Elbe River Watch video Sony's adorable Aibo always has a day to play Watch video Animations show the Arctic's sea ice breaking up near Greenland Watch video Lobster krill fights Gentoo penguin with small pincers Watch video Victim's father weeps as husband is charged with killing family Watch video Dolphins help defend humpback whale and calf from male humpbacks Watch video Rita Ora and Liam Payne get up close and personal at show Watch video Rezum treatment treats BPH by injecting steam into the prostate Watch video Weld County DA lays out charges against 'killer dad' Chris Watts Watch video Cohen leaves court after pleading guilty to eight charges Watch video Jennifer Garner brings a Bible to confront ex Ben Affleck Source: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-6090719/Tomb-Bronze-Age-Minoan-man-surrounded-funerary-possessions-discovered-Crete.html?ns_mchannel=rss&ito=1490&ns_campaign=1490

If so, it may have been hijacked to mine Bitcoin and other digital currencies in a new type of attack called 'cryptojacking' (stock image) WHAT IS CRYPTOJACKING? Cyber criminals can infect computers with malware and use their processing power to mine for currencies. Share this article Share 33 shares Most cyptocurrency mining is legitimate, and involves vast banks of number-crunching computers known as crypto mining farms (file photo). Cyber criminals without access to these farms hack unsuspecting computers and use their processing power to mine for currencies Security experts say a recent surge in 'cryptojacking', which allows cyber criminals to make thousands by illicitly mining for cryptucrrencies like Bitcoin, is due in part to an arsenal of US government hacking tools leaked to the internet last year (stock image)WHO ARE THE SHADOW BROKERS?

Father-of-two, 28, almost died after developing deadly sepsis from biting his NAILS  - fox news
Father-of-two, 28, almost died after developing deadly sepsis from biting his NAILS - fox news A father-of-two almost died after developing sepsis from biting his fingernails.Luke Hanoman, 28, from Birkdale, Southport, battled flu-like symptoms for two weeks after biting down the skin on the side of his nail.After eventually going to hospital last July, Mr Hanoman spent four days under constant observation and was told he was lucky to be alive.Now fully recovered, Mr Hanoman, a warehouse operator, is speaking out to raise awareness of sepsis' symptoms.Sepsis, also known as blood poisoning, kills around 44,000 people in the UK every year.Mr Hanoman, who has two sons aged six and five, thought nothing of biting his nails, which was a nervous habit, until he started developing cold sweats, shaking and fever.He also struggled to focus, while his affected finger swelled and throbbed.Thinking he just needed rest, Mr Hanoman dismissed his symptoms until his mother noticed he slept in until 2pm.His concerned mother rang the NHS helpline 111, who said Mr Hanoman had to be rushed to A&E.'They told me I was lucky to be alive'Mr Hanoman, who had two drips fitted in his arm, told The Mirror: 'I was close to septic shock.'They told me I was lucky to be alive.'Eventually they got to the infection in my finger and all of this puss came out.'Mr Hanoman is keen to raise awareness that sepsis can strike people of any age, adding he was completely unaware of the condition's symptoms before he was struck down.Like many others, he claims he was reluctant to take time off work when feeling unwell and just tried to push through the discomfort.Mr Hanoman's employer Chemist-4-U.com is raising money towards sepsis research.

CAN LAUGHING AT YOURSELF IMPROVE YOUR MENTAL HEALTH? - fox news Researchers in Spain have discovered that laughing at oneself is not necessarily a bad thing.A new study revealed that self-defeating humor might have an effect on how angry you are.But the report explained how some people use humor to cover up negative thoughts.The study said: 'The researchers are quick to point out that certain styles of humor may be employed to conceal negative intentions and feelings.'One of the researchers explained the potential dark sides of the tactic, saying that the 'results suggest that humor, even when presented as benign or well-intentioned, can also represent a strategy for masking negative intentions.'Humor enables individuals with low scores in honesty to build trust, closeness, etc. with other people and thereby use important information in order to manipulate them or obtain advantages in the future.'

WHY DOES THE SMELL OF AMMONIUM REMIND US OF URINE? - fox news Ammonium is a chemical made of nitrogen and hydrogen (NH3).Proteins are made of building blocks called amino acids, which are also made from nitrogen and hydrogen.Proteins make up a large portion of the human diet and are converted to ammonium after they are broken down in the liver.Because ammonium is toxic to humans, the body converts it to urea - the main ingredient of urine.Under severe dehydration, the urine of a person can become highly concentrated and the scent of ammonia strengthens.In air conditioning units, the bacteria that live there contain chemicals called keratinases which break down the proteins in the skin cells.As a result, these bacteria produce pure ammonium which is circulated by the air conditioning unit - spreading the familiar smell of urine.

fox news -  Jackson-Stops reveals Luton is top commuter hotspot
fox news - Jackson-Stops reveals Luton is top commuter hotspot It may not be renowned for its stunning architecture or abundance of leisure facilities, but Luton has finally received an accolade it can be proud of.The Bedfordshire town has beat stiff competition from Weybridge and Dorking in Surrey to top a list of Britain's commuter hotspots for 2017.Its research took into account the average price of a home in the area, along with the cost and length of the commute into London, frequency of trains and the likelihood of being able to sit down on the train.The average price of a property in Luton is £252,896, having climbed 10 per cent during the past year.The cost of annual travel ticket is high compared to other areas at £5,256, but parking costs are relatively low at £840 and it has an fastest journey time of 24 minutes.Commuters are also able to get a seat in the morning, according to the study carried out by estate agents Jackson-Stops.Each of the 25 areas listed in the research were initially ranked individually, using a point system. These were then added up to reveal the best places to live for commuters.Dorking in Surrey ranked in second place, followed by Slough in Berkshire, with annual travel costs of £3,536 and £3,464 respectively.The top 10 also included Weybridge in Surrey, Reading in Berkshire and Chelmsford in Essex.It comes as rail commuters return to work after the festive break to be hit with the biggest fare rise in five years.Average ticket prices across Britain have gone up by 3.4 per cent with rail commuters paying up to £2,500 more for a season ticket to work than they were at the beginning of the decade.Nick Leeming, chairman at Jackson-Stops, said: 'Commuters to London are going to be feeling the strain of their annual rail fare in 2018, with the 3.4 per cent average increase in price outstripping wage growth for many.'For those moving within the London commuter belt, and families moving out of central London, location will be key. It isn't just about the average house price, many people will have first-hand experience of train delays, engineering works and strikes, and will be looking closely at the length, quality and cost of their commute.'He added: 'The reliability of trains is something buyers are looking at more closely when they move to an area and there are stark differences between the different train operators. It's no good the journey taking 25 minutes in theory when it is blighted by delays every day and ends up taking much longer.'He praised Luton of its 'fast and frequent' trains into the heart of London, 'comparatively low house prices' and 'strong levels of annual price growth'.The town is set for further expansion with £1.5billion of inward investment promised in the next couple of years, including a £110million investment into London Luton Airport and £300million into nearby mixed use development Napier Gateway.Mr Leeming added: 'These ongoing projects are expected to create 18,500 new job opportunities in Luton, and a high demand for new homes.'Yopa's co-founder Source: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/property/article-5228475/Jackson-Stops-reveals-Luton-commuter-hotspot.html?ITO=1490&ns_mchannel=rss&ns_campaign=1490

Climate change could be driving antibiotic resistance across the US - fox news A study found that higher local temperatures and population densities correlate with a higher degree of antibiotic resistance in common bacterial strains Previously, increase in resistance to common bacteria was thought to come from over-prescribing antibiotics. In 2016 the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimated that approximately 30 percent of prescribed antibiotics are unnecessary The researchers found that an increase of 50 degrees Fahrenheit is associated with increases of antibiotic-resistant strains of E. coli (4.2 percent), K. pneumoniae (2.2 percent), and S. aureus (3.6 percent).

Inside the cave where a hybrid Neanderthal love child was found  - fox news
Inside the cave where a hybrid Neanderthal love child was found - fox news This is the inside of a Siberian cave where an amazing inter-species love child called Denny lived 50,000 years ago. The remarkable girl, who was believed to be aged around 13, was not Homo sapiens Share this article Share 13 shares Instead DNA findings on a tiny piece of bone (pictured) show she was the product of a sexual liaison between a Neanderthal mother and a father from another now-extinct early human grouping called the Denisovans Other discoveries in the cave where Denny lived (pictured), in the limestone foothills of the Altai Mountains, have already proved that some 50,000 years ago the Denisovans were more advanced than both Homo sapiens and Neanderthals The discovery of Denny suggests that our ape-like cousins mated far more frequently than researchers thought, according to archaeologists Neanderthals and Denisovans share a common ancestor with humans, and roamed Eurasia as far back as 400,000 years ago having migrated from Africa. Pictured is the inside of the cave A bracelet made from made from stunning green-hued chlorite, bead jewellery made from ostrich eggs (pictured), and a needle – still usable today – testify to the talents of Denisovans, say archaeologists The jewellery (pictured) was unearthed in the Denisova cave, 2,198 feet (670 metres) above sea level and would have been made by a member of this long-gone branch of humanity, according to the paper published recently in Nature journal Remarkably, Denny's relatives – with five per cent Denisovan DNA – are the native peoples of Australia and Papua New Guinea, presumably after her descendants gradually migrated eastwards from Siberia, interbreeding as they journeyed. Pictured is jewellery found inside the cave The pair of human-like species then intermingled with modern humans when they arrived on the continent around 40,000 years ago, with members of the three species sometimes cross-breeding. In fact, Denisovan blood lives on, but nowhere near Siberia   The cool climate means the cave acts as a natural time capsule and objects – some dating back to least 288,000 years – are very well-preserved The Denisovans were first identified a decade ago when a tiny finger bone fragment (pictured) of so-called 'X woman' was discovered. It was believed to have belonged to a young female who lived around 41,000 years ago This summer the bone of an extinct woolly rhinoceros that would have been hunted by cave residents was found in the cave. Pictured is a fragment of a bracelet found in the cave  Denny's bone was found in 2012, but it is only now that analysis of it has led to this remarkable discovery. Pictured is the ostrich eggshell bead A study of a tiny bone fragment found in a cave in Russia shows the teenager had a Neanderthal mother and a Denisovan father, and provides fresh insight into the manner in which the now-extinct species interacted.

WHO WAS KING FERDINAND II OF ARAGON? - fox news Ferdinand II (or Ferdinand the Catholic, 1452-1516) was the Spanish king of Aragon and king of Castile from 1479.As a Spanish ruler of southern Italy as well, he was also known as Ferdinand III of Naples.He united the different Spanish kingdoms at the time and formed the nation of Spain, and began Spain's entry into the period of imperial and colonial expansion.Ferdinand II of Aragon led the Spanish acquisition of Naples against French king Louis XII in 1503.In 1501, a French and Spanish invasion divided the Kingdom of Naples according to a pre-agreed upon plan to partition the kingdom between them into a northern French area of the Abruzzi and Campania (including the city of Naples) and a southern Spanish area of Calabria and Puglia.But when fights broke out in Puglia in 1503 over the large revenues of the sheep customhouse at Foggia, Spanish forces under Gonzalo Fernández de Córdoba (the 'Great Captain') outfought the French and occupied the entirety of the Kingdom of Naples by the end of that year.France abandoned its attempted claim of Naples in 1505 and over the next 30 years, Naples was a hub for spearheading Spanish policy in Italy.During these battles, king Ferdinand II used a secret code system to send messages to his military commander, Gonzalo Fernández de Córdoba, during the War over Naples.King Ferdinand II also resisted Ottman advances, and his conquest of Granada made it possible to support Christopher Columbus' travels across the Atlantic.
