(devon ravine/northwest florida daily news via ap, file)the trump administration on thursday proposed ending automatic protections for threatened animal and plant species and limiting habitat safeguards that are meant to shield recovering species from harm. administration officials said the new rules would advance conservation by simplifying and improving how the landmark endangered species act is used.`these rules will be very protective,` said u.s. interior department deputy secretary david bernhardt, adding that the changes also will reduce the `conflict and uncertainty` associated with many protected species.such conflicts have been numerous in the decades since the act's 1973 passage, ranging from disruptions to logging to protect spotted owls in the pacific northwest, to attacks on livestock that have accompanied the restoration of gray wolves in the rocky mountains and upper midwest.the proposed changes include potential limits on the designation of `critical habitat` for imperiled plants and animals; an end to a regulatory ...

with comcast out, how disney's empire will look with fox
july 19, 2018 by mae anderson this march 29, 2017, file photo shows a sign outside the comcast center in philadelphia. comcast says it's dropping out of the bidding war for twenty-first century fox's entertainment business, instead focusing on its bid for sky. (ap photo/matt rourke, file)the mouse house is getting close to catching the fox. comcast's decision thursday to drop its bid for the bulk of twenty-first century fox means disney's $71.3 billion offer for fox is likely to prevail. fox shareholders vote on the offer on july 27. meanwhile, comcast is pursuing sky, a european pay-tv operator that fox partially owns.the moves come as the media landscape is shifting dramatically. cable and telecom companies are acquiring content makers to better compete with the likes of popular streaming services like netflix and amazon. last month, at&t bought time warner, getting the warner bros. studio and such channels as tbs and hbo.so what would a combination of disney and fox look like, as well as a combination of comcast and sky? here's a look at what each company would be taking away if the deals go through.moviesx-men and other movies from fox's studios could be added to disney's upcoming streaming service. fox's film studios, with `avatar,` x-men, the fantastic four and deadpool, would pair well with disney's studios. this includes reuniting the marvel franchises x-men and the avengers, as some of those characters were already in fox's hands when disney bough...

deep-diving scientists say shallow reefs can't rely on twilight zone systems for recovery
new findings suggest that out-of-sight deep reefs are unique habitats in need of protection. a team of highly trained scientific divers—led by researchers from the california academy of sciences—explored pacific and western atlantic reefs to test a widely held hypothesis that climate-stressed life from shallow reefs can take refuge at mesophotic depths (100—500 feet beneath the ocean's surface). the results are clear: deep and shallow reefs are actually different systems with their own species, and deep reefs are just as threatened by climate impacts, storms, and pollution as their shallow counterparts. their work, published today in science, represents a major shift in thinking for scientists, conservation managers, and members of the public hoping to give coral reefs a fighting chance.

3-d technology to be tested for carry-on bags at jfk airport
july 19, 2018 travelers at john f. kennedy airport in new york will soon experience a test of more advanced, three-dimensional imaging to screen carry-on bags. the transportation security administration and american airlines said thursday that a test of computed-tomography scanners will start later this month at jfk's terminal 8.the machines let screeners manipulate 3-d images to get a better idea of what's inside a bag.tsa has been running similar tests in phoenix and boston since last year.tsa uses 3-d imaging to scan checked bags, but until recently the scanners have been too large and heavy for use at security checkpoints. instead, screeners use older x-ray technology to inspect carry-on bags.tsa administrator david pekoske says 3-d scanning will improve security right away. © 2018 the associated press. all rights reserved.

belgian airspace closed over computer glitch
july 19, 2018 the closure of belgium's airspace has affected six airportsbelgium on thursday closed its airspace following a computer glitch linked to problems downloading data related to flight plans, said belgocontrol, the company tasked with controlling the country's skies. planes have not been allowed to fly over belgium since 4:00 pm local time (1400 gmt). `the airspace was closed for security reasons, in what we refer to as a 'clear the sky' (procedure),` belgocontrol's spokesman alain kniebs told afp, describing the incident as `very exceptional.``some planes are grounded, others have been prevented from landing,` he added.belgocontrol was unable to immediately quantify how many flights or passengers had been affected.according to a spokesperson for brussels airport, the situation should return to normal at around 6:00 pm (1600 gmt).six belgian airports have been impacted by the shutdown. the closure affects all jets flying at under 8,000 metres (26,000 feet) in altitude, which is the range controlled by belgocontrol.any jets flying above that range are manned by maastricht, another controller.`that means that any flight linking denmark to spain, for instance, will not be affected because it is flying quite high,` kniebs said. © 2018 afp

they could start their own fires
july 19, 2018 by deborah netburn, los angeles times credit: junior libby/public domainhumans may not have been the only hominids who knew how to start a fire long ago. new research suggests that as early as 50,000 years ago, neanderthals wielded this power as well. the work, published thursday in scientific reports, provides new evidence that neanderthals may have created flames-on-demand by striking a small piece of pyrite against a biface—their favorite mutlipurpose stone tool.scientists already knew that neanderthals were able to control and use fire, but controlling it and producing it are not the same thing, said andrew sorensen, a doctoral student in archaeology at leiden university in the netherlands who led the work.`there is an ongoing debate in the world of early fire research as to whether neanderthals could make fire for themselves, or if they were reliant on natural sources like wildfires started by lightning strikes from which they could collect fire later,` he said.early humans created fire by striking steel or pyrite against flint to create a shower of sparks, sorensen said. the sparks fell on tinder, causing it to smolder. then they would place a piece of that smoldering material into a bundle of dried grass, for example, and gently blow it into a flame.sorensen wondered if neanderthals might have employed a similar technique.to answer that question, he experimented with creating fire himself by striking a piece of pyrite against a replica of a bi...

hawaii businesses seek lava viewing site to reignite tourism

(nathan kam via ap)stunning images of hawaii's erupting kilauea volcano have captivated people around the world. but ironically it's nearly impossible for residents and visitors on the ground to see the lava—a fact that's squeezing the tourism-dependent local economy. big island businesses are calling for a lava viewing site, but authorities say they're finding it difficult to set one up while keeping people safe.the risks posed by the volcano came into sharp focus this week when lava flowing into the ocean triggered an explosion that sent a hot rock the size of a basketball crashing through a tour boat's roof. one woman broke her leg, while nearly two dozen others suffered minor burns and scrapes.diane ley, hawaii county's director of research and development, said she's been working on setting up a lava viewing site for nearly two months, consulting with federal scientists and the county's civil defense administrator. the injuries from the tour boat only validate the county's caution, she said.`that's a challenge—...

learning from 'little monsters'
july 19, 2018 by jeff mitchell, university of california - santa barbarathe baetis is among the benthic inverbrates common to streams in the eastern sierra. credit: bruce medhurstcaddisflies, crustaceans, mollusks and flatworms. those are just a few of the curious creatures known as benthic (bottom-dwelling) invertebrates and commonly found in small streams. fingernail clams and oligochaetes are part of the menagerie, too. their individual names aside, uc santa barbara stream ecologist david herbst affectionately calls them all `little monsters.` indeed, with the wide-set eyes, cavernous mouths and wily antennae on some of them, they could easily be the stuff of horror films.for herbst, though, the `little monsters` he observes in the open-air laboratories of the eastern sierra nevada are an indicator of the health of the greater food web. and his new research, recently published in the journal hydrobiologia, illuminates the connection between benthic invertebrates and the movement of the water in which they live.`as water flows down from mountains it does not follow a straight path,` said herbst, a research scientist with ucsb's marine science institute (msi). `it both meanders side to side and undulates from shallow to deep. it picks up and puts down what is on the stream bottom, receives what comes off the land and carries downstream what it can, leaving behind what is more than it can lift. these flows and forces form characteristic habitats of shallow rif...

in a warming climate, arctic geese are rushing north
as arctic temperatures continue to rise, migratory barnacle geese have responded by speeding up their 3,000-kilometer migration in order to reach their destination more quickly with fewer stops along the way, according to new evidence reported in current biology on july 19. unfortunately, the birds' earlier arrival isn't making as much of a difference as one might expect. that's because, when the geese reach their arctic breeding grounds after an accelerated marathon flight, they must take extra time to refuel their own bodies before laying eggs.

phages work together to suppress crispr bacterial immunity
crispr, or clustered regularly interspaced short palindromic repeats, are an essential part of bacterial immunity designed to defend against foreign dna. in bacteria, crispr acts just like it does in human cells as a pair of scissors, in their case with the goal of cutting strands of infecting dna. while researchers have known that crispr is found in roughly half of all bacteria in the wild, they did not know much about the molecular battle between crisprs and invading viruses or phages.

new study puts a figure on sea-level rise following antarctic ice shelves' collapse
an international team of scientists has shown how much sea level would rise if larsen c and george vi, two antarctic ice shelves at risk of collapse, were to break up. while larsen c has received much attention due to the break-away of a trillion-tonne iceberg from it last summer, its collapse would contribute only a few millimetres to sea-level rise. the break-up of the smaller george vi ice shelf would have a much larger impact. the research is published today in the european geosciences union journal the cryosphere.
