A stunning study may finally answer one of the most tantalizing questions about how life on earth began

That is because the study appears to have found out why and particularly how oxygen came to be on earth subsequently resulting in life as we know it. According to a new study, oxyen got its way of life after the days on earth got much longer. Oddly enough, earth once had six hour days (presumably billions of years ago) but now days go in 24 hour intervals. The consequences of that have obviously played their part in climate change and how we view our actions against mother nature. Published in Nature Geoscience — researchers are pushing a new theory that some 2.4B years ago (when earth had not allot of oxygen then) the days suddenly got longer. During that time period, plants and animals could not really breathe on earth due to the atmospheric climate. During their discove...

We’re capable of infinite memory, but where in the brain is it stored, and what parts help retrieve it?

Human memory is complex and neuroscientists are still trying to uncover the mechanisms that lead to memories being formed. Viki Reed/Flickr, CC BY Amy Reichelt, RMIT University The brain is key to our existence, but there’s a long way to go before neuroscience can truly capture its staggering capacity. For now though, our Brain Control series explores what we do know about the brain’s command of six central functions: language, mood, memory, vision, personality and motor skills – and what happens when things go wrong. One of the critical functions of the brain is to encode and store information, which becomes our memories. Our memories provide us with insight into events and knowledge of the world around us and influence our actions and behaviours – forming important ...

Scientists have found a way to print 3-D human bones

In a headline that sounds like something straight out of a sci-fi movie, scientists have made an extraordinary breakthrough. Researchers in Australia made the breakthrough discovery on Monday using and creating what they're calling bio-gel. The technique is reportedly known as ceramic omnidirectional bioprinting in cell-suspensions (COBICS). The bio gel in question is used on a patient's bone cavity instead of a surgeon doing what a surgeon would do. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=peJds2vP9Bo&feature=emb_title

A treasure trove of CIA documents has revealed that America has known about alleged UFO ‘s for nearly a century

A stunning new release of mass documents has indicated one thing for certain: America has known about alleged UFO 's for nearly a century and has been investigating them ever since. In a newly released trove of documents, the CIA released so many documents one could easily get lost in the revelations that appear to be made in them. Revelations that include the extraordinary reported sighting of UFO 's in Morocco; Iran, and other countries that weren't known to previously have had such sightings as maintained by the Americans for decades. The files come from a site known as "The Black Vault" which has been dueling with the CIA for decades over access to their intel on the matter. Intel that many these days believe likely somewhere holds the key to the oldest mystery to puzzle mankind...

People in South Korea got flu shots, and now they’re dying by the dozen

Editors note: By no means is this article a suggestion that people should avoid vaccinations, however, you should always know what is being put into your body especially from a medical doctor. Vaccinations a crucial part of life — although sometimes they can have very real consequences. ——- SEOUL, SOUTH KOREA —- Korean authorities are scrambling this evening to determine exactly what happened to at least 13 patients and counting that appear to have died shortly after getting vaccinated for the flu. According to a translated media report from South Korea, the individuals all received the flu shot (ranging from 17 clear to about 85.) Authorities say that the youngest of the bunch, believed to be 17, died all but two days after getting the vaccination. Police are scrambling ...

Study finds that earth had far shorter days when dinosaurs were alive

Turns out dinosaurs spent their days long before we did in much shorter fashion. According to Live Science, the day of the dinosaurs meant that the sun traveled around almost twice as fast as it does in today's time. This means that at the time dinosaurs existed -- the days were actually significantly shorter. Fossils of rudist bivalves such as this one (Vaccinites) discovered in the United Arab Emirates' Al-Hajar Mountains, provide valuable insight into what life was like millions of years ago.(Image: © Wikipedia, Wilson44691 – Own work, Public Domain) In fact --- ancient researchers now say that days were up to 30 minutes shorter and week's a whole week longer at the end of the year.
