Soon they were joined by David “Nova” Nowakowski on piano and keyboards. Then one day Nova was hanging out with his college classmate Aimee Driver, the story goes, when she suddenly chimed in on a Cure song from the kitchen where she was making tea. He convinced her to join the band so she could harmonize with Bemrose. It’s worked out well with their earnest artistry and pop purity reminiscent of Fleetwood Mac and Coldplay. The band got their name from reading an interview with Emmylou Harris, who said her dad used to scold her for listening to his record collection and “getting scars on his 45s.” These Brits have probably already logged more miles hitting the highways of America than many Americans alive today ever will!

His collaborative videos with his pal Jesse Scaturro on Ditch Films is a YouTube sensation. Yes, he’s got the Greeks in his pocket—one of his best characters is Mr. Panos, a helluva Hellenic booster who owns the fictitious Baby Socrates Diner in Queens—but Pappas is hard to pigeon-hole. Another character he does is Maurica Rodriguez, a pre-op transsexual Puerto Rican from the Lower East Side looking for a husband from Westchester to help “her” complete herself. Race relations, sexual relationships, celebrity couplings, and economic uncouplings, all topics are fair game in the fertile imagination of Yannis Pappas. Genius! Charisma! That’s what we’re talking about! Featuring Mr. Panos and Maurica.

He’s riffed on The Late Show about flicking pickle juice from his fingers to flavor his ham sandwiches and recently he’s been jiving jocosely with the talented pair of funny women on Comedy Central’s Broad City. Burris has been seen on 30 Rock and in Zac Efron’s Neighbors. He’s totally wack. No lamb is not sacrificed, no goat escapes scalping, no ox goes ungored. And when Burris brought up the multiple sexual assault allegations against Bill Cosby, this no-holds-barred, deceptively laid-back comic in glasses made national news as his routine went viral. What Burris does is always catching somebody off guard—and that’s a good thing.

first_imgThere’s electricity at Titan, the large moon of Saturn.  That can only mean one thing: life!  “Electricity Found on Saturn Moon–Could It Spark Life?” asked a headline on National Geographic News by Rebecca Carroll.  Visions of spark discharge tubes in a mad scientist’s lab arise in the imagination.  “Recently identified electrical activity on Saturn’s largest moon bolsters arguments that Titan is the kind of place that could harbor life.”    Carroll quickly pointed out that at -350° F, any Titanian life would not resemble “life as we know it.”  Initial indications of electrical activity in the thick atmosphere of this unusual moon have been confirmed in data from the Huygens Probe that landed in 2005 (see 01/15/2005, 01/21/2005).  With that spark of imagination, the L-word leaped up from the reporter’s table:But a new study reports faint signs of a natural electric field in Titan’s thick cloud cover that are similar to the energy radiated by lightning on Earth.    Lightning is thought to have sparked the chemical reactions that led to the origin of life on our planet….    Jeffrey Bada, of the Scripps Institution of Oceanography, believes the process that allowed lightning to spark life on Earth is universal and could happen in many environments—including on Titan.    Confirmation earlier this year of Titan’s hydrocarbon lakes makes the Saturnian moon the first place other than Earth where open bodies of liquid have been found.    Hydrocarbons are organic molecules, and the fact that they exist in large quantities on Titan suggests that life could take root there under the right conditions.Alas, the water required for life is locked up in rock-hard ice.  The “precursor molecules” formed by lightning acting on hydrocarbons could go no further without water, Bada said.  But then – perhaps the ice could melt under certain circumstances.  Maybe a meteor impact would melt the ice long enough for interesting things to happen. Titan’s water is currently frozen into chunks as hard as granite.  If those ice “rocks” were to melt, however, the environment could become more hospitable to the building blocks of life.    With liquid water, the planet could host the formation of amino acids and then full proteins, which drive all biochemistry and set the stage for more complex molecules.    “I look at Titan as a big, frozen, prebiotic casserole,” Bada said, referring to the state before the emergence of life.    “The idea that life could be widespread in the universe, I think, is very credible.”Juan Antonio Morente of the University of Granada in Spain, the lead author of the study, seemed less enthusiastic about the possibility of life on Titan.  He said that Titan is exposed to deadly cosmic rays because it lacks a stable magnetic field.  “Without stable protection from radiation, Morente said, ‘the existence of life is very unlikely.’”    In all, Carroll used the L-word life 11 times in her short 585-word article.  It seems strange Carroll would focus on life now when discussing Morente’s paper.  For one thing, it’s not news; the paper was published in June.1  And the team never used the L-word in the paper.  Apparently Jeffrey Bada,2 a well-known origin-of-life researcher at Scripps, “who was not involved with Morente’s study,” made the statements about electricity, hydrocarbons and life recently – or maybe Carroll was looking for a story with a tie-in to Frankenstein right before Halloween.1.  Morente, Porti, Salinas and Navarro, “Evidence of electrical activity on Titan drawn from the Schumann resonances sent by Huygens probe,” Icarus, Volume 195, Issue 2, June 2008, pages 802-811, doi:10.1016/j.icarus.2008.02.004.  The only statement in the paper that comes close to the idea of life on Titan is in the first paragraph: “Lightning activity would considerably increase the probability of organic and pre-biotic molecules being formed.”2.  Jeffrey Bada was part of another Halloween prank last week: see the 10/20/2008 entry.Creepy.  To learn about the real Frankenstein, listen to this podcast.  Truth is stranger than fiction.(Visited 10 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

first_img More information: Generalist-specialist trade-off during thermal acclimation, Royal Society Open Science, rsos.royalsocietypublishing.or … /10.1098/rsos.140251 As it appears we humans are not likely to alter the course of global warming, at least any time soon, scientists continue to study other animals to try to ascertain how they might fare in an increasingly uncertain climatic future. In this new effort, the researchers chose to focus on mosquitofish because they have a reputation of being able to acclimate to changes in their environment. The fish were introduced into Australia in 1925, in hopes that they would help reduce the mosquito population. Since then they have come to inhabit waters all across the country, due to their uncanny ability to acclimate to water temperature differences and are now considered a pest.To learn more about the acclimation abilities of the fish, the team captured specimens from a well studied site with known temperature variations, and placed them in tanks of water of varying degrees, from 20 to 30 degrees centigrade and tested their ability to acclimate by creating an artificial stream, also of varying degrees and noting how well they swam against it. Analysis of the data revealed that some specimens were much better at acclimating to warmer temperatures than others, offering a clue as to how the fish species was able to spread so successfully. But the data also showed that despite their hardy reputation, the fish that were able to acclimate to colder water were not able to do so for warmer water, which suggests that such fish will likely fare poorly as average temperatures in their environment increase over the next century—because of the difficulty in acclimating to more extreme fluctuations in temperature.The team says their findings likely apply to other species as well, and theorize that as the world grows warmer, animals that live in colder climates are likely to experience more difficulty acclimating than will those that live in warmer places, particularly cold blooded species.

Shape up quickly—applies to fish, too (Phys.org)—A study conducted by a quartet of researchers from the University of Sydney, Université de Lausanne and the University of Glasgow has led to findings that suggest cold climate animals are more likely to suffer adverse impacts due to global warming than are animals that naturally live in warmer parts of the world. In their paper published in the journal Royal Society Open Science, the team describes how exposing mosquitofish to various temperature changes showed its ability to acclimate to changes in its environment and why the team believes such findings likely apply to other species as well.center_img Journal information: Royal Society Open Science © 2015 Phys.org Citation: Study shows cold climate animals may suffer as global temperatures rise (2015, January 21) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2015-01-cold-climate-animals-global-temperatures.html Explore furtherlast_img read more
