Mass media often failing in its coverage of global warming, says climate researcher
... managers of media organizations, you are screwing up your responsibility by firing science and environment reporters who are frankly the only ones competent
to do this," said climate researcher and policy analyst Stephen Schneider, in assessing the current state of media coverage of global warming and ...
Caltech-led researchers find negative cues from appearance alone matter for real elections
... the volunteers had to make character-trait judgments about the politicians--for example, which of the two politicians in the pair looked more competent
to hold congressional office, or which looked more likely to physically threaten the volunteer. In other experiments, volunteers were asked to cast ...
Study: Bird diversity lessens human exposure to West Nile Virus
... of the virus. Where many bird species exist, very few mosquitoes get infected, and so we humans are at low risk. A few bird species are highly competent
reservoirs, and these tend to occur in urbanized and suburbanized areas where bird diversity suffers."
The most common 'reservoir' species that ...
Diversity among bird populations found to reduce threat of West Nile virus
... mechanism that drives this pattern, but it's
likely to be due to diverse areas having relatively few of the bird species
that are particularly competent
hosts and reservoirs for the virus," Swaddle
Host competence, he explains, refers to a set of qualities that make a
particular species of ...

Human clones: New U.N. analysis lays out world's choices
Failure to deal with the cloning issue reflects on "the credibility of the UN institution itself and its capacity to respond to societys need for competent
leadership," says the report.
Whichever path the international community chooses it will need to act soon either to prevent reproductive cloning ...
Argonne National Lab acquires first SiCortex SC5832
... SC5832 can perform six trillion operations per second in a cabinet that is less than one-third the size of conventional clusters.
There is no more competent
and motivated team than at Argonne, said SiCortex CEO Dr. John Mucci. Their interests in existing applications, in fostering innovative new ...
Cassini on the trail of a runaway mystery
... Scientists have ruled out that it is a youthful feature because it is pitted with craters, indicating it is old. And the ridge looks too solid and competent
to be the result of an equatorial ring around the moon collapsing onto its surface. The ring theory cannot explain what look like tectonic structures ...
Newly identified mechanism for silencing genes points to possible anti-cancer strategies
... genes might be attracting microRNAs that then recruited eIF6 to that location," Shiekhattar says. "If so, the eIF6 would prevent the assembly of a competent
ribosome, thus blocking messenger RNA translation at that gene. The result would be to silence that specific gene. We tested this idea in human cells ...
New strategy developed to combat West Nile Virus
... bites both," he added.
Not all of the world's more than 3,600 species of mosquitoes transmit diseases to humans. The mosquito must be sufficiently competent
to act as a carrier, thus some species can act as hosts for certain diseases, while others are more "refractive," ?not carrying enough of the disease ...
Genetic snooze button governs timing of spring flowers

Researchers find Amchitka seafood safe for now
... challenge of analyzing our data proved every bit as difficult as the expedition itself. Intellectually honest and nimble people ?when they are really competent
