rare butterfly killer convicted in britain

The rare Large Blue (Maculinea Arion) species of butterflyA British man has been convicted of capturing and killing two of Britain's rarest butterflies, the endangered Large Blues, which have been a prized collector's item since the Victorian era.
Judges at the court in the southwest city of Bristol late on Thursday found 57-year-old Philip Cullen guilty of killing the Large Blues, which have protected status, and he faces a possible prison sentence to be decided next month."It is a unique case. There has never been a prosecution in terms of capturing and killing in the past," prosecutor Kevin Withey told the court.Conservation volunteers had spotted Cullen trapping Large Blues with a small net in two protected areas in Gloucestershire and Somerset in southwest England.Police then raided

it's good to be rare, for some species

This Tritonia nudibranch found in the Red Sea may be chronically rare. This species is generally seen only once every few years. Credit: Flickr/prilfishWhen most people think of rare species, they think of endangered ones that humans have caused to be rare through habitat loss, poaching, climate change and other disturbances. But some species have always been rare—occurring in small densities throughout their range—throughout their evolutionary history. Yet little is known about the traits that allow for them to be chronically rare and stay rare for long periods of time.
A perspective paper from the University of California, Davis, in the journal Ecology Letters suggests that for many species, rarity is not a guarantee of impending extinction. Instead, the traits that enable some species

pokémon go: how to use rare candy and what to use it on

Rare candy in Pokémon Go can be used on any Pokémon at any time. Here's how to get it, how to use it, and what you should use it on!Rare candy is a new item in [Pokémon Go])(/./pokemon-go), introduced alongside Raid Battles. You get it by beating Raid Bosses and, unlike the usual, species-specific candy, you can convert it for use on any kind of Pokémon in your collection.At first, you can't get enough of it. Then, you're flush with it and can't stop using it. Eventually, though, it starts to fill up your storage and you need to figure out what to do with it.What is rare candy in Pokémon Go?When Pokémon Go introduced Battle Raids, the game also introduced several new items as rewards for winning them. That included technical machines (TMs) and, you guessed it, rare candy.Previously, you ea

people with rare diseases are at more risk for poor quality of life, study finds

CORVALLIS, Ore. - People with rare diseases are at high risk for experiencing poor quality of life, including increased levels of anxiety, depression, pain, fatigue and limited ability to participate in society, a new study from an Oregon State University shows. The study is believed to be the first large-scale study of adults living in the U.S. that are diagnosed with a rare disease or disorder, said Kathleen Bogart, an assistant professor of psychology in the College of Liberal Arts at OSU."These findings suggest that the quality of life needs of people with rare diseases are not being met and that more work is needed to provide psychosocial support for this group," said Bogart, whose work focuses on the psychosocial implications of disability. "There is a disparity here and intervention

toyota’s new magnet won’t depend on some key rare-earth minerals

Photographer: Doug Kanter/Bloomberg via Getty Images.Getty ImagesShare this storyToyota says it has invented a new magnet for high-energy applications like electric motors that uses a fraction of the amount of neodymium (a rare-earth element) of a standard iron, boron, neodymium (NdFeB) magnet.Rare-earth magnets are used in many hybrid vehicles, some all-electric vehicles, and in other applications like wind turbines and robotics.Although "rare" is a bit of a misnomer for a material like neodymium (high demand has led to relatively high production volumes), Toyota notes that "there

sea of thieves offline this weekend: what you should know

After years of waiting and anticipation, Sea of Thieves finally launched earlier this week. Reactions to the game seem to be mixed, but that isn’t stopping players from setting sail – in fact, Rare has revealed that more than one million unique players have logged into the game since it released. Unfortunately, those of you hoping to start the weekend by pulling an all-nighter in Sea of Thieves are about to be disappointed.Rare has a rather long period of server downtime scheduled for tomorrow. This downtime will allow Rare to perform server maintenance on Sea of Thieves, and it’s going to last for a not-insignificant 5 hours. Rare has scheduled this maintenance period to last from 9 AM to 2 PM GMT on March 24, so over in the UK, many of you won’t be able to access the game until late afte

toyota's next ev motor could use 50 percent less rare earth metals

Toyota has designed a magnet that halves the amount of rare earths needed in its electric cars, which could help mitigate the fall out of a looming materials shortage. Like other electric carmakers, Toyota has traditionally used neodymium, terbium and dysprosium in its electric vehicles, but it believes demand for these materials will outstrip supply come 2025. The new magnet uses the rare earths lanthanum and cerium instead, which are more plentiful and cost 20 times less than neodymium.

rare-earths become water-repellent only as they age

Rare earth oxides (red/orange) react with gaseous organic compounds from the ambient air to form carbonates and hydroxides (grey/white). Through this reaction, the surface develops water-repelling properties. Credit: University of Basel, Department of PhysicsSurfaces that have been coated with rare earth oxides develop water-repelling properties only after contact with air. Even at room temperature, chemical reactions begin with hydrocarbons in the air. In the journal Scientific Reports, researchers from the University of Basel, the Swiss Nanoscience Institute and the Paul Scherrer Institute report that it is these reactions that are responsible for the hydrophobic effect.

understanding rare earth emulsions | eurekalert! science news

Despite their name, rare earth elements actually aren't that rare. Abundant in mines around the world, rare earths are used in many high-tech products, including visual displays, batteries, super conductors, and computer hard drives. But while they aren't necessarily tricky to find, the elements often occur together and are extremely difficult to separate and extract."Having the ability to recover rare earths is important because they are finite but in high demand," said Northwestern University's Monica Olvera de la Cruz. "To extract them, we need them to disperse and separate, but they tend to aggregate and clump together."Olvera de la Cruz and her team are working to better understand why rare earths are strongly attracted to each other across long distances, making separation and extrac

sea of thieves content updates release schedule and more detailed

Sea of Thieves, for as cool as sailing around with your friends is, has something of a content problem. Though the basis of great game seems to be in place, right now, it can feel like there isn’t all that much to do. Now that launch has come has gone – with a few bumps to smooth out along the way – Rare can turn its attention toward building out the game’s content, and it plans to do just that.Rare has detailed its content plans for Sea of Thieves in a new post over on the game’s official site. The developer says that there are specific areas of focus when it comes to adding new content to the game, as it considers whether or not the content that’s being added does things like enrich the world or “encourage different types of player encounters.” Increasing the variety of goals and rewards

rare внесла `патч первого дня` в релизную версию sea of thieves - новости

Студия Rare внесла «патч первого дня» в релизную версию Sea of Thieves, но представляет он собой не совсем то, что обычно является такого рода патчем.Английская игра слов позволила Rare добавить в игру предмет day-one patch — или «повязку на глаз первого дня». Разработчики буквально подцепили эту идею от игроков сообщества, которые посоветовали Rare еще в самом начале месяца не упустить такую возможность.Новый косметический предмет доступен у внутриигрового торговца, предлагающего различные варианты экипировки. Довольно занятная вещица — особенно в сравнении с традицией выпускать огромные релизные матчи.Релиз игры состоится завтра на Windows 10 PC и Xbox One.
