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 said. Host competence, he explains, refers to a set of qualities that make a particular species of ...

Center for Computer Forensics Offers Expert to Volunteer as CFCE Certification Applicants Coach

... messages and other electronic files and records. If an attempt has been made to delete, erase, or otherwise hide critical evidence, an experienced, competent examiner from the Center for Computer Forensics is necessary to lead the search and retrieval of the missing information. For more information, ...

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

... where the meristem - a region on the growing point of a plant where rapidly dividing cells differentiate into shoots, roots and flowers - is rendered competent to flower. In a series of studies of Arabidopsis, a small mustard plant commonly used to study plant genetics, Amasino and his colleagues have ...

DNA: Bacteria's survival ration

... is suspected of feeding on DNA in lung tissue, Finkel said. Biofilms, which have been linked to chronic infections, also may harbor nutritionally competent germs. If researchers succeeded in turning off nutritional competence in such pathogens, as Finkel did in E. coli, the advance might lay the ...

Protein translation in sperm

... several hours. During this time, a number of biochemical changes take place within sperm, collectively known as "capacitation," that render the sperm competent to penetrate and fertilize the female oocyte. In their new report, Drs. Gur and Breitbart demonstrate that human, rat, bovine and mouse sperm all ...

Regenerating worms help elucidate stem cell biology

... their destination. Based on their findings, Sánchez Alvarado said, "We think that piwi is actually involved in producing daughter cells that are competent to restore aged differentiated cells during homeostasis as well as missing tissues after amputation. Unlike what's been thought about piwi for ...

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 ?will find a way to find out the facts. This is a study of which we are all very proud," said Charles W.
