Cat Litter Could Be Antidote for Climate Change, Researchers Say – The Wall Street Journal

CAMBRIDGE, Mass.—Researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology say they have found a potent new tool in the fight against global warming. It is basically cat litter.  They soaked an odor-eating clay used in cat boxes in a copper solution…

Memory Loss Was Reversed in Mice Using a Brain Liquid From Younger Peers in ‘Groundbreaking’ Study

Memory loss has been reversed in mice by injecting them with a brain liquid from younger peers in a “groundbreaking” new treatment.. The substance, called cerebrospinal fluid (CSF), washes in and out of grey and white matter in waves—helping clear out waste. It bathes the tissue with proteins, or growth factors, that are vital for […]

Microbial Responses to Climate Change in Three Major Ecosystems – AZoCleantech

Climate change is now generally accepted as humanity’s most serious contemporary challenge. According to a report released by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), the situation has worsened, with 3.3 billion people globally vulnerable to climate change. This article…

Getting sticky with it: Phospholipid found to play a key role in epithelial cell adhesion

Cells have certain proteins that help them adhere to each other while covering body surfaces and organs. Loss of these identifying proteins could result in cellular progression towards cancer and, subsequently, metastasis. However, lipids may play a role in maintaining cellular identity as well. Scientists have now identified the role of PIP2, a phospholipid, in maintaining epithelial cell-cell adhesion and cellular identity. Their findings will help develop strategies aimed at suppressing metastasis.

From Weather Forecasting to Climate Change, NASA’s AIRS Builds a Legacy – Climate Change: Vital Signs of the Planet – NASA Climate Change

[embedded content] NASA’s AIRS instrument tracked a record-breaking heat wave as it intensified in the Pacific Northwest last June. AIRS remains a vital resource for weather forecasting, and 20 years after launch it has also become a resource for understanding…

From Weather Forecasting to Climate Change, NASA’s AIRS Builds a Legacy – NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory

On April 13, a blizzard dropped 4 feet of snow on Minot, North Dakota, as a drought-fueled wildfire burned in Ruidoso, New Mexico, and severe storms spawned eight tornadoes in Kentucky. NASA’s Atmospheric Infrared Sounder (AIRS) helped weather forecasters predict…
