Rising temperatures signal problems for honeybees

A bee parasite, normally associated with more exotic climates is threatening British bees. A new research model indicates that a rare gut parasite could cause increasing damage to U.K. bees as the climate warms.

Soil microbes can help tackle climate change

Researchers have developed a new climate change modeling tool. The tool shows that carbon dioxide removal from the atmosphere, as result of greater plant growth can be offset by changes in the activity of soil microbes.

Alaska frogs survive in freezing conditions

Anchorage - In subarctic Interior Alaska, wood frogs spend winter in the ground covered by duff and leaf litter in conditions where temperatures can remain below freezing for more than six months with minimum temperatures of minus four (minus 20 Celsius).

Bleach can treat inflammation

Scientists have shown that the active ingredient in bleach can reduce inflammation by targeting an activator in the immune system of mice.

New compound cools down as it heats up

The headline may read a little odd, but the compound vanadium dioxide does indeed become cooler as heat is applied. This insight means that it could be used to disguise soldiers from infrared sensors.

Predicting U.S. heat waves

Scientists have located a distinctive atmospheric wave pattern high above the Northern Hemisphere. This pattern appears to appear prior to the emergence of summertime heat waves in the U.S.

Heatwaves linked to increases in bowel diseases

The recent run of higher temperatures in many parts of the world have been associated with an increase in inflammatory bowel disease-related hospital admissions.

Does light or temperature affect the body clock?

Studies undertaken on fruit flies have shown how their body clocks are affected by changes in temperature. Fruit flies are often used to mimic studies in humans. The findings have implications for conditions like jet-lag.

Scientists record hottest temperature ever measured

Scientists have measured the hottest recorded temperature ever. Paradoxically this highest ever temperature is actually expressed as a negative value. The finding will be useful for understanding theoretical dark matter in the universe.

Telling lies leads to a temperature increase

When a person tells a lie the temperature of the nose increases, which is equivalent to a kind of “Pinocchio Effect”, according to new research.
