    "There be gold in them butt hills!"

    Gold in faeces 'worth millions'


    Previous research suggested the waste from one million Americans could contain as much as $13m worth of metals

    US researchers are investigating ways to extract the gold and precious metals from human faeces.

    The group identified gold in waste from American sewage treatment plants at levels which if found in rock could be worth mining.

    Details were outlined at the 249th national meeting of the American Chemical Society (ACS) in Denver.

    Extracting metals from the waste could also help curb the release of toxic substances into the environment.

    "The gold we found was at the level of a minimal mineral deposit," said co-author Dr Kathleen Smith, from the US Geological Survey (USGS).

    In addition to gold and silver, human waste also contains amounts of rare earth metals such as palladium and vanadium.
    "We're interested in collecting valuable metals that could be sold, including some of the more technologically important metals, such as vanadium and copper, that are in cell phones, computers and alloys," said Dr Smith.

    The team estimates that seven million tonnes of solid waste come out of US wastewater facilities each year. About half of that is used as fertiliser on fields and in forests, while the other half is incinerated or sent to landfills.

    The scientists are experimenting with some of the same chemicals, called leachates, which industrial mining operations use to pull metals out of rock.

    While some of these leachates have a bad reputation for damaging ecosystems when they leak or spill into the environment, Smith says that in a controlled setting - they could safely be used to recover metals in treated solid waste.

    In a previous study, another team of scientists calculated that the waste from one million Americans could contain as much as $13m (£8.6m) worth of metals.

    New species of frog found in Costa Rica looks just like Kermit



    Someone should let Kermit know he has a new relative.

    A new species of frog called the Hyalinobatrachium dianae has been found in Costa Rica. Similar to the glass frog, the lime-colored amphibian has translucent skin on its underside and has eyes that make it look like the famous Muppet, Kermit.


    Video in link

    The frog's translucent belly makes its internal organs easy to see, but its those big, white eyes with perfect black centers that give a distinctive, Muppet-like look.

    The frog was photographed by Dr. Brian Kubicki, who detailed the new species in a study with zoologist Stanley Salazar and Robert Puschendorf. Dr. Kubicki named the creature after his mother, Janet Diana Kubicki, according to the Costa Rican Amphibian Research Center.





    The frog was previously missed by scientists who were studying the area, but the authors attribute this to the frog's particular call. Dr.Kubicki says it sounds more like an insect than a frog, according to The Tico Times, a Costa Rican news site.

    The study describes the frog’s "advertisement call" as "a single tonal long metallic whistle-like note." No word yet on whether the new species enjoys playing the ukulele or has an affinity for fashionable pigs. Further study will be needed.

    Next, scientists will look for bears who tell knock-knock jokes.

    Toothbrush to check your DNA for cancer

    Quote
    Tiny microchips embedded in toothbrushes could soon warn us about the early onset of diseases including cancer and Alzheimer’s, technologists believe.
    Known as nanopore sequencers, they analyse DNA as it passes through a tiny hole on the chip and decode it into a digital format, in a process known as “sequencing”. These digital readings can then be assessed against genetic markers that are known to indicate disease.
    The sequencers are becoming smaller and could soon be embedded in any product or device that comes into contact with human DNA.

    ...The largest vessel the world has ever seen  ..


    Climbing onto the largest vessel the world has ever seen brings you into a realm where everything is on a bewilderingly vast scale and ambition knows no bounds.  Under construction in South Korea, Prelude is destined for a gas field off the coast of Australia

    Quote
     Painted a brilliant red, Prelude looms over the Samsung Heavy Industries shipyard on Geoje Island in South Korea, its sides towering like cliffs, the workforce ant-like in comparison. The yard, one of the largest in the world, is a mesmerising sight with around 30,000 workers toiling on the usually unseen infrastructure of the global supply of fossil fuels: dozens of drilling ships, oil storage tankers and gas transporters.

    Quote
    Park and produce

    Prelude is not only the largest of all of these to take shape in this hive of activity - it also pioneers a new way of getting gas from beneath the ocean floor to the consumers willing to pay for it. Until now, gas collected from offshore wells has had to be piped to land to be processed and then liquefied ready for export.

    Usually, this means building a huge facility onshore which can purify the gas and then chill it so that it becomes a liquid - what's known as liquefied natural gas or LNG - making it 600 times smaller in volume and therefore far easier to transport by ship. And LNG is in hot demand - especially in Asia, with China and Japan among the energy-hungry markets.

     




    Quote
    Prelude is a staggering 488m long and the best way to grasp what this means is by comparison with something more familiar.

    Four football pitches placed end-to-end would not quite match this vessel's length - and if you could lay the 301m of the Eiffel Tower alongside it, or the 443m of the Empire State Building, they wouldn't do so either.

    In terms of sheer volume, Prelude is mind-boggling too: if you took six of the world's largest aircraft carriers, and measured the total amount of water they displaced, that would just about be the same as with this one gigantic vessel.

    Quote
    A 65-year-old German woman has given birth to quadruplets after undergoing an artificial insemination procedure, Germany's RTL television reports.   It says Annegret Raunigk had three boys and a girl by Caesarean section at a Berlin hospital on Tuesday.

    They were born prematurely at 26 weeks but have a "good chance of surviving". Annegret Raunigk - who already has 13 children and seven grandchildren - is the world's oldest woman to have quadruplets.

    Pregnant at 65: Miracle of medicine

    The single mother reportedly decided to try for another baby when her youngest daughter, who is now 10, said she wanted a little brother or sister.
    Ms Raunigk's pregnancy - the result of fertility treatment in Ukraine - has been the subject of fierce debate in Germany, the BBC's Jenny Hill in Berlin says.
    During her pregnancy she said she believed everyone should be able to live the life they wanted to.

    Asked whether she had any concerns, Ms Raunigk said she assumed she would stay fit and healthy and that she was not worried about what other people thought.

    Some doctors have questioned whether she would be physically capable of bearing the children.
    However, the German school teacher is not the oldest woman to give birth to a child - that official record is held by Maria del Carmen Bousada Lara. She had twins in Spain in 2006, at the age of 66.

    Some reports dispute this, saying the actual record holder is Omkari Panwar, who is believed to have been 70 when she gave birth to twins in India in 2008.

      well that is the news and this is the person

    This once-stable Antarctic region has suddenly started melting

    Quote
    Antarctica’s glaciers have been making headlines during the past year, and not in a good way. Whether it’s a massive ice shelf facing imminent risk of collapse, glaciers in the West Antarctic past the point of no return, or new threats to East Antarctic ice, it’s all been rather gloomy.

    And now I’m afraid there’s more bad news: a new study published in the journal Science, led by a team of my colleagues and I from the University of Bristol, has observed a sudden increase of ice loss in a previously stable part of Antarctica.

    The region in question is the southernmost half of the Antarctic Peninsula, a section of the mainland which extends 1300km into the Southern Ocean. Its northern half is the continent’s mildest region and the climate effects there are clear. We already knew for instance that the glaciers of the Northern Antarctic Peninsula were in trouble following the disintegration of some of its ice shelves, most famously Larsen A and B.

    Further to the west, the massive glaciers feeding into the Amundsen Sea have been shedding ice into the ocean at an alarming rate for decades. Out of the blue, the Southern Peninsula filled up the gap between these two regions and became Antarctica’s second largest contributor to sea level rise.

    Using satellite elevation measurements, we found the Southern Antarctic Peninsula showed no signs of change up to 2009. Around that year, multiple glaciers along a vast 750km coastline suddenly started to shed ice into the ocean at a nearly constant rate of 60 cubic km, or about 55 trillion litres of water, each year – enough water to fill 350,000 Empire State Buildings over the past five years.

    Some of the glaciers are currently thinning by as much as 4 metres each year. The ice loss in the region is so large that it causes small changes in the Earth’s gravity field, which can be detected by another satellite mission, the Gravity Recovery and Climate Experiment (GRACE).

    We live in interesting times. yes

    Ah. I noticed you've added a Freeman Dyson vid to your post. Dyson used to be good at physics, but has no expertise in climate science. There are plenty of dissections of his views available. Just as one example, read this: http://www.realclimate.org/index.php/archives/2011/02/the-starship-vs-spaceship-earth/

    And really, using Business Insider as a source for climate science is just stupid.

    Bottom line is that climate science denial is no more rational or respectable than denying evolution. Just because you don't like what the science says doesn't make it wrong.
