How Do You Win Friends And Influence People? Location, Location, Location

WASHINGTON (UPI) — A new study reveals what every good real estate agent already knows: location is key. More than just house-hunting wisdom, location is key to forging relationships, building alliances and cutting deals. Whether you’re at King Arthur’s Round Table or the sixth-grade lunch table, everyone knows who you sit by is of the […]

Four Years After The Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill, Wildlife Still Struggling

WASHINGTON (UPI) — Roughly four years after BP’s Deepwater Horizon oil rig exploded, spilling 200 million gallons of oil — the biggest oil spill in U.S. history — wildlife in the Gulf of Mexico continue to struggle. According to a new report by the National Wildlife Federation, bottlenose dolphins, sea turtles and other animals continue […]

Science, Discovery Channels To Broadcast Private Race To The Moon

WASHINGTON (UPI) — Just a week after Google announced its Lunar X competition, teams of engineers and scientists are racing to build a robotic spacecraft that can successfully land on the moon. A prize of $30 million awaits the first to accomplish the feat — and so does television stardom. Now, thanks to both the […]

Japanese Volcanic Island Swallows Neighbor

TOKYO (UPI) — Niijima island is relatively new, born just last year, but it has already become an geological aggressor. Last November, the volcano first broke through the ocean’s surface, becoming Japan’s latest piece of territory in the “Ring of Fire” — a string of heightened seismic and volcanic activity in the Pacific that stretches […]

Large Bonus Earners Give Less To Charity, Study Finds

Economists at the University of Southampton found that participants in a study on earning and charity were less likely to donate after receiving a bigger bonus. “Our findings suggest that receiving higher pay due to good luck is not generating a stronger need to ‘give back to society,’” explained Dr. Mirco Tonin, co-author of the […]

Texas Family Claims To Have Caught Mythical Chupacabra

As far as biologists are concerned, there’s no such thing as a chupacabra. But a family in East Texas is sure they’ve caught one. “He saw this strange animal up here eating corn,” Jackie Stock told KAVU-TV, recounting the story of how her husband came to corner and cage the mangy and mysterious creature. “He […]

Sing-Along Science May Boost Learning

Science is hard. Especially for school children learning advanced concepts. But a little theme music and a singalong or two could make absorbing scientific concepts less of a cognitive burden — that’s the conclusion of researchers at the University of Washington. Researchers Katie Davis and Greg Crowther recently looked into how use of music videos […]

Mars And Earth Move Closer Together This Month

Spring is here, love is in the air, and Mars and Earth are getting a little closer this time of year. For the next two weeks, the two neighborly planets will continue to converge — the distance between them shrinking roughly 186 miles every minute. By the time the convergence ends, Mars and Earth will […]

Logging May Have Contributed To Deadly Washington Landslide

Geologists are trying to figure out exactly what triggered the deadly landslide in Oso, Wash., last month. So far there are two primary suspects: rising groundwater that loosened already slippery layers of soil, or the Stillaguamish River, whose current has slowly eroded the base of the hillside. If it’s the former, scientists say logging might […]

Algae Can Be Grown As Biofuel, Even In Cold Climates

In the natural world, algae’s presence is often unwanted. Its overgrowth sucks the oxygen out of bodies of water, depleting biodiversity in aquatic ecosystems. And when it appears in increasing supply along popular shorelines, property values drop, hurting local economies. Algae isn’t all bad, however. It can serve as a useful biofuel, a cleaner alternative […]
