Bacteria's Role In Long-Term Ocean Carbon Storage

Science2.0 - April 1, 2015 - 3:00pm
The ocean is a huge reservoir of dissolved organic molecules, many of them stable against microbial utilization for hundreds and even thousands of years.  They contain a similar amount of carbon as compared to carbon dioxide (CO2) in the atmosphere and the origin of these persistent molecules has been something of an enigma.

FMRI Study Finds That Mindfulness More Effective Than Scientology At Clearing Thetans

Science2.0 - April 1, 2015 - 1:30pm
BeSlyfMRI Brain Training program, created by Dr. B. Raneded out of California State University, Las Flores, has successfully demonstrated that mindfulness can clear thetans better than Scientology. Not only can fMRI answer what is really going on in a man's head, it can also verify that men can and do think of absolutely nothing when hearing their wives speak, validating suspicions held by women everywhere.

Kardashian Lumbar Curvature Index - An Evolutionary Hypothesis

General - April 1, 2015 - 1:00pm
There are sometimes complaints that modern men only prefer one certain female body type, but we should blame evolution and prehistoric influences, according to a new study.

Professor Anthony Ray from the Department of Evolution and Human Behavior at Mack University investigated male mate preferences for female figures. 200 males, ages 17-21 and receiving extra credit in an introductory psychology class at a small liberal arts college, were presented with images of women who had differing lumbar curvature but the same buttock size and vertebral wedging. 

A large majority of the men consistently preferred women whose buttock size and vertebral wedging most closely matched prehistoric ideals on what he calls the "Kardashian Lumbar Curvature Index".

New Plant Detects GMOs

General - April 1, 2015 - 1:00pm
Do you want to know whether or not there are GMOs in your home?

There is increasing concern about GMO safety in our post-agrobacterium world. Recognizing the need for increased consumer empowerment on this issue as well as an unmet need for more GMO transparency, we here at Revolution Bioengineering are developing 'Geemo', a simple, easy to use, plant that can detect GMOs around your home.

Seals Happy About Global Warming Sea Ice Loss

Science2.0 - April 1, 2015 - 1:00pm

Though the developed world is concerned about greenhouse gas emissions implicated in climate change and global warming, reactions in nature have been less consistent.

Polar bears have been increasingly forced on shore due to sea ice loss, where they eat berries, birds and eggs, while ice seals, the usual lipid-rich prey of bears, couldn't be happier that thinner ice has made them harder to get to.

BPA Will Kill The World - Homeopathically

Science2.0 - April 1, 2015 - 12:30pm
It is rare enough to have one accepted scientific paradigm turned on its head, but last week we had two. Pay attention. This may never happen again.

A study that was just published in the oft cited “Journal of Unintentional Environmentalism and Bassoon Maintenance” got things rolling. It provided proof that proponents of homeopathy have been right all along, despite longstanding, dogmatic and arrogant protestations by second rate pseudoscientific hacks such as myself. More on this later.

A new paper has found that criminal masterminds have been engaging in creating future henchmen starting at the earliest ages - Kindergarten.

Suitable candidates are carefully placed in Kindergarten where they develop vast academic and social networks so that when they begin their lives of crime, they have friends in all the right places.

Instead Of An April's Fool

Science2.0 - April 1, 2015 - 10:13am
Taking inspiration from Resonaances, who this year offers much more than an April's Fool in his blog (I am also flattered to see that I am featured there, and with a character of my liking), I am going to offer some predictions for the next run that the LHC is going to start, at the unprecedented energy of 13 TeV, in the next few weeks. The unconventional thing is that I will force the natural scepticism out of my brain, and try to be over-optimistic.
The prediction for 2015-2016

Scientific Research Helps Create First Ice Casino Blueprints

Science2.0 - April 1, 2015 - 7:00am

A recent study undertaken by the Institute of Polar Science has backed plans by Gala Casino to create the first ever Ice Casino.

Led by Professor Ross Bight, a renowned figure in the fields of both human and animal behaviour in the Arctic, the research has found that players become more composed and focussed whilst being subjected to a colder temperature.
