Fish Smell Like the Coral They Eat—Disguise Is New to Science

“This is the first time scientists have discovered an animal chemically camouflaging itself via its diet, said study leader Rohan Brooker, currently a postdoctoral student at the Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta.”

I love cartography.

How One Woman's Discovery Shook the Foundations of Geology

"Her maps also showed something else—something no one expected. Repeating in each was “a deep notch near the crest of the ridge,” a V-shaped gap that seemed to run the entire length of the mountain range. Tharp stared at it. It had to be a mistake.

She crunched and re-crunched the numbers for weeks on end, double- and triple-checking her data. As she did, she became more convinced that the impossible was true: She was looking at evidence of a rift valley, a place where magma emerged from inside the earth, forming new crust and thrusting the land apart. If her calculations were right, the geosciences would never be the same.”

In fossilized fish eye, rods and cones preserved for 300 million years

"It is the first time that fossilized photoreceptors from a vertebrate eye have ever been found, according to a paper published Tuesday in Nature Communications. The researchers say the discovery also suggests that fish have been seeing the world in color for at least 300 million years.”

"Tanaka said the discovery could inform the study of many vertebrates like dinosaurs, birds and other fossil fish. Scientists had thought that modern eyes had developed hundreds of millions of years ago. Now, they have definitive proof.”

Funny, as I have read it turns out snakes don't have virgin births, but when they mate while immature they can give birth while older

The rest is based on a process called parthenogenesis

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Parthenogenesis

Humans can't do it naturally, only in labs, and even then it is mostly stem cells. In short human males are still needed.

Asteroids discovery over the decades. I don't know if this was posted already. If it has been posed, well.....it's being posted again.





Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors.... on Donald J. Trump:

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.
