For people who need to lose weight, do sugar substitutes really help? Do people with diabetes benefit by substituting products made with Sweet‘N Low, Splenda, or NutraSweet in their diet? How about our children growing up ingesting these sugar substitutes; is there any concern for their future health?
When Disney acquired the rights to Marvel, nobody knew what to make of the union. With one best known for wholesome family entertainment and the other geared more towards intense action intended for older audiences, would they really blend well together? “Big Hero 6” is clear-cut evidence these two innovative companies are a match made in heaven.
U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (Service) scientists, along with state wildlife agency and U.S. Forest Service partners, have been coordinating with the Phoenix Zoo to develop a pilot breeding program for the critically endangered Mount Graham red squirrel (MGRS). Phoenix Zoo will act as the coordinator for other zoos interested in participating in this program. Recently, biologists with the Service collected three females and one male from the wild to bring the Zoo population to six individuals (three males, three females) needed for this project.
Between visits with human patients, care taking for animal patients, and days of travel and research in the Galapagos it’s difficult to pin down exactly what it is Ahwatukee Foothills resident Dianne DeNardo does for a living.
Global Warming (GW) is Climate Change (CC) caused by mankind. The only problem is that the people in the field refuse to conduct tests proving how mankind causes this. The environmentalists claim that carbon dioxide is the main cause of GW, but no scientist has shown proof of this. Professor Phillip Stott wrote an article in the Wall Street Journal, titled “Political Science.” Some of its passages are as follows: “Climate Change (CC) must be accepted as the norm, not as an exception. The concept of achieving a stable climate is a dangerous oxymoron.”
Today let’s consider the locust: it looks like a grasshopper, but is something scientists call “gregarious,” which means it joins up with its friends, creates swarms that together cover about a fifth of the Earth’s land mass and eats up to 423 million pounds of food a day.
Here we are, deep in the Here we are, deep in the dog days of another summer. School is out, vacation days are being cashed in, and picnic baskets are being packed. Barbecues are firing, pools are splashing, and ice cream trucks are rolling. Meanwhile, thousands, yea millions, are taking to the great American highway.
Near Mpumalanga, South Africa, are the marvelous and mysterious Echo Caves. Rediscovered in the last century and turned into a tourist site, these caverns are home to a truly remarkable ecosystem. One of the more amazing species found there, is its famous and unique wild fig trees. As far as plant life goes, these fig trees appear to be normal run-of-the-mill fruit bushes. What makes them so famous is the unseen: Their roots. Researchers and spelunking scientists have followed the roots of these trees deep into Echo Caves — 400 feet deep to be precise — the deepest known root system in the world.
Each and every one of us will walk a different path down the road of life, and yet students are expected to follow a systematized process known as the education system. Just doing well in school these days is not enough to carry students on to the next step, it takes something extra within. These days, we are seeing students struggling to get through the school system effectively; only 30 percent of students attending a four-year, public university graduate within the expected four-year path. These days it is taking students five, six, even seven years to get a Bachelor’s degree and I’ve discovered the reason why. It’s an ancient truth that can be observed on any campus, in any classroom, at any workplace.
Brick Mansions is an American remake of the French action film, District B13 (2004), that starred the French inventor of the Parkour… uhh … obstacle exercise technique (?), David Belle. I’m not really sure what Parkour is, other than you jump, swing and flip over walls, cars and fences while running from something. Skills that I’m sure come in handy when capture is more dangerous than what you are doing to evade it.
The more evidence pours in that their dire warnings are doubtful, the louder environmental scare mongers insist that the “science is settled.” “We should not allow a tiny minority of shoddy scientists and extreme ideologues to compete with scientific facts,” Secretary of State John Kerry said. “The science is unequivocal.” Barack Obama agreed that “the debate is settled.”
