A current system in the Atlantic Ocean is showing signs of trouble — that’s a bad thing for us humans

Climate change is back in the headlines once again. According to reports, scientists are sounding the alarm on a reported system of currents that is showing signs of instability in the Atlantic. Scientists say this is a problem simply because this particular system of currents helps regulate the temperatures we enjoy. The temperature regulation point would have dire consequences for life on earth if further instability continues to show. CNN notes that the aftermath of such a failure would likely begin the beginning of what would become of the climate collapse.

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 ...

The humans have another organ, and, we’ve never heard of it

But it was sketched by Leonardo Da' Vinci thousands of years ago. According to scientists, they've now discovered yet another human organ that hadn't always been classified as an organ.  The mesentery was previously classified as a collection of fragments that connected the intestine to the abdomen. But now, scientists say that they've found sufficient e nough evidence to formally and scientifically classify the mesentery as an actual organ that is vital to the human body.  Researchers aren't quite yet sure what the mesentery does in its whole, but, they reportedly believe that it will help determine future cures for abdominal issues and problems.
