Justin pictured died after getting hit by a stray bullet.

He and Jessica were avid musicians and had written and recorded an album together. Jessica told in an essay how she saw Justin die at their home in Panama City, Florida pictured and how she struggled to cope in the days and months that followed. The bullet traveled more than feet before it hit Justin in the head, going through a window screen, some trees and a glass door.

She and Justin were both avid musicians and had written and recorded an album together. Jessica ended up alone in the bathroom the next day and felt that she had lost the will to live. She was in the bathroom to take a shower. I wanted to die. Friends and relatives pleaded with her to come out. Jax needed to eat and she had been breastfeeding him.

When she heard her mother say they would go to the store to get formula, Jessica found the force to get up from the floor. This is the first in a four-part conclusion to the Shannara series. Violence and death have come to the land under the Northern Sky. The Anakim dwell in the desolate forests and mountains beyond the black river, the land under the Northern Sky. Their ancient ways are forged in Unthank silver and carved in the grey stone of their heartland, their lives measured out in the turning of centuries, not years.

By contrast, the Southerners live in the moment, their vitality much more immediate and ephemeral than their Anakim neighbours. Fragile is the peace that has existed between these very different races - and that peace is shattered when the Southern armies flood the lands to the north.

These two races revive their age-old hatred and fear of each other. Within the maelstrom of war, two leaders will rise to lead their people to victory. Only one will succeed.

In this her book debut, she explains the adolescent brain, its transformations, and how it ultimately shapes the adults we become. The brain creates every feeling, emotion and desire we experience, and stores every one of our memories.

And yet, until very recently, scientists believed our brains were fully developed in childhood. So what makes the adolescent brain different? What drives the excessive risk-taking or the need for intense friendships common to this age group?

SF cinema is explored through key turning points in its history through 30 significant films. But her talents do not stop at fiction. Over the course of her career, she has penned numerous essays around various themes including anthropology, environmentalism, feminism, social justice and literary criticism.

This book connects that novel with the then new science of the 18th and 19th centuries. As a physicist, Alan Lightman has always held a purely scientific view of the world. Even as a teenager, experimenting in his own laboratory, he was impressed by the logic and materiality of the Universe, which is governed by a small number of disembodied forces and laws.

Those laws decree that all things in the world are material and impermanent. But one summer, while looking at the stars from a small boat at sea, Lightman was overcome by the overwhelming sensation that he was merging with something larger than himself - a grand and eternal unity, a hint of something absolute and immaterial.

For hundreds of thousands of years, our ancestors depended on wild plants and animals for survival. Then during the Neolithic revolution our hunter-gatherer ancestors changed their interaction with other species in a crucial way: And the human population boomed; civilization began.

This is the story, encompassing hundreds of thousands of years of history, archaeology, biology, anthropology and palaeontology, of the species with which humanity has co-evolved: Close Encounters With Humankind: Answers questions such as whether or not we are inherently cannibals, and were human hobbits real? Includes tables, charts and illustrations.

For millennia, the awareness of our own mortality and failings has led to religions concocting comforting notions of an afterlife, of heaven and hell, utopias and dystopias and of the perfectibility of human nature.

Heavens on Earth explores the numerous manifestations of the afterlife - a place where souls might go after the death of the physical body. Religious leaders have toiled to make sense of this place that a surprisingly high percentage of people believe exists, but from which no one has ever returned to report what it is really like. Shermer details recent scientific attempts to achieve immortality by radical life extentionists, extropians, transhumanists, cryonicists and mind-uploaders, along with utopians who have attempted to create heaven on Earth.

Dr Michael Shermer is the founding publisher of Skeptic magazine, a monthly columnist for Scientific American , and a Presidential Fellow at Chapman University where he teaches Skepticism Spring General Science News. The Nobel Prizes for science have been announced. The science category wins were: The time gene makes a protein called PER.

As levels of PER increased, it negatively feedbacks turning off its own genetic manufacture instructions. As a result, levels of the PER protein oscillate over a hour period. If PER manufacture is more stable then the clock ticks more slowly. The stability of PER is one reason some are morning larks and others are active into the night. His genre-related novels include Never Let Me Go which was adapted for cinema. The Royal Society Book Prize winner has been announced.

Unmaking the Myths of Our Gendered Minds. It looks at the biology behind modern gender myths. Unmaking the Myths of Our Gendered Minds won from a short-list previously reported. The Jon Maddox Prize for has been awarded. The prize goes to a scientist who champions scientific evidence in the face of hostility. He promoted evidence about the human papilloma virus HPV that triggers cervical cancer.

Riko Muranaka faced hostility including litigation. A new type fusion discovered with quarks not whole atoms. A, , Nature , vol. There has been a record surge in atmospheric carbon dioxide while the ability to reduce emissions declines.

It is a conflation of different bad news on the greenhouse front. In the first monitoring station recorded levels above ppm as part of the annual fluctuating cycle. Then in the global average level reached ppm. And in no part of the annual cycle fell below ppm. The United Nations Environment Programme UNEP , recommends that there is an urgent need for accelerated short-term action and enhanced longer-term national ambition, if the goals of the Paris Agreement are to remain achievable!

Global warming could be warmer according to a new analysis. They found that warming under what is effectively business-as-usual emissions was about half a degree warmer than the IPCC concluded in its most recent Assessment: Hurricanes this late summer have badly hit the Caribbean and the US, as well as most significantly though under-reported Asia. This begs the question as to whether climate change global warming is the cause?

But the IPCC remains, as always, cautious saying "The frequency of the most intense storms will more likely than not increase substantially in some [ocean] basins. What this means is that, for example the total number of cyclones may not increase, but within that number, the number of cyclones with intense wind speeds will likely increase.

See also Cowie, J, , Climate Change: Biological and Human Aspects 2nd edition , pages and The detection was made back in August but now analysis has been complete and it seems that the waves were the result of two neutron stars colliding.

Unlike previous wave detections involving colliding black holes , colliding neutron stars see some matter ejected in events that their peak brightness would be about 1, times that of normal supernovae: Astronomers visually detected this in a galaxy million light-years away and labelled it EM Nitrate time bomb threatens global underground water reserves.

Aquifers geological strata water used by humans are monitored for nitrate but this is hiding a global time bomb say British geologists. But before nitrate gets to aquifers it spends many years often many decades up to million tonnes of nitrate are stored in rocks worldwide - perhaps twice the amount stored in soils. And when this nitrate finally reaches the aquifers it can contaminate them necessitating drinking water be subject to costly treatment.

This is doubly important as with a growing global population there is increasing pressure for additional agricultural output. The problem is currently greatest in North America and especially the Mississippi basin , China and Europe. The geologists argue that in these areas use of conventional nitrogen budget and monitoring approaches is inappropriate. See Ascott et al , , Nature Communications , vol.

Thunderstorms result in nuclear reactions: The idea that the huge magnetic fields in thunderstorms which result in lightning could force atoms to undergo nuclear reactions was first proposed by the Scottish physicist and meteorologist Charles Wilson in But then we new little about atoms; neutrons were not event discovered until Neutrons associated with thunderstorms were detected in but other explanations such as cosmic rays could not be ruled out.

Since then there have been other detections but always possible alternate explanations. Now Japanese researches who had radiation monitoring stations around a nuclear power station considered a range on likely photonuclear reactions expected that result in positron-electron annihilation in a gamma ray specifically of 0.

This all four of their detectors picked up during a thunderstorm. It seems that thunderstorms really do result in nuclear reactions. See Enoto et al , , Nature , vol.

Possible ecological mega-crisis foreshadowed by 27 year German study showing three-quarters flying insect decline! This is some news that has not had the media profile it warrants concerning the flying insect decline in Germany as revealed by a comprehensive study of 63 nature protection areas in Germany over 27 years. Flying insects are of critical ecological importance being key to ecosystem function.

The European team, led by Caspar A. They show that this decline is apparent regardless of habitat type, while changes in weather, land use, and habitat characteristics cannot explain this overall decline.

See Hallmann et al. The estimated decline is considerably more severe than the only comparable long term study on flying insect biomass that took place in Britain between and That showed a showed a biomass decline at just one of the four sites only. The cause of the decline in the new German study is unclear but the authors suggest a link to agriculture agricultural land surrounds all the protected nature reserves that were studied.

Needless to say this is a most serious ecological problem arguably necessitating greater political attention and warranting public interest. Back in there was an outbreak of an highly infectious and lethal flu-like virus, SARS. That was over a decade ago and in , with no more cases , SARS dropped from media and political attention with the public memory of the outbreak dimming. But research has continued with the source linked to a Chinese bat cave Kunming city, Yunnan province.

Their work suggests that SARS variants capable of direct transmission to humans are circulating in horseshoe bats in this cave. Cure for type-2 diabetes found.

So what is this cure? Loss of weight to become slim. This should not come as a surprise as being overweight has long been known to trigger the onset of diabetes. And the cure works well. The experiment lasted three years and those who kept the weight off saw no return of symptoms; those who put weight back on saw symptoms return.

Those who lost the most weight spent up to five months on a low-calorie diet of soups and shakes to trigger massive weight loss. Once the weight is off, daily light exercise such as daily walking to the station and shops meant a return to more normal diet. See Lean et al , , Primary care-led weight management for remission of type 2 diabetes.

Tips for losing weight after the initial soup and shakes weeks include: It has been used to tackle some of the most challenging areas in biology including: It is such a powerful tool that USA intelligence has identified it as having the potential to manufacture weapons of mass destruction. Two independent teams, both from the Broad Institute US , have had papers on their respective new, more advanced, nucleic acid editing tools published: The first edits single DNA bases: Given that a protein is made up of a series of amino acids, editing a single base pair can change which amino acid is coded for by a single base-pair triplet.

David Liu and his team is behind this development. While last year they developed another single-base pair editing tool, it could only undertake two kinds of pair conversion: The new tool, published in Nature , converts the other way: Conversely the other tool, developed by Feng Zhang and colleagues, is used on RNA the nucleic acid that takes the DNA coding information to where proteins are made in the cell outside the nucleus.

Or it could be used instead of gene therapy but it would necessitate the patient repeatedly having the treatment much like diabetic patients regularly need insulin. The coming decade is bound to be remarkable.

This may seem a small bit of technical news but it is a significant development and all part of the critically important CRISP revolution that has swept molecular biology the past couple of years.

They successfully turned on the gene for insulin production in mice increasing insulin production and so combating diabetes. Genes for muscular dystrophy and kidney function were also successfully switched on.

Key photosynthesis enzyme artificially assembled in a bacterium. This is probably the hottest science news you are unlikely to have heard the past season. RuBisCo ribulose-1,5-bisphosphate carboxylase oxygenase is central to fixing carbon dioxide in photosynthesis and is the most common protein on Earth. However, most forms of it are not very efficient, so genetically modifying it and inserting into a bacterium effectively to act as a pseudo-chloroplast would be a major step in the path to improving crop productivity.

German scientists have now managed to insert functional plant RuBisCo into a bacterial host. Modern humans diverged from primitive humans between , and , years ago. Swedish and South African researchers led by Carina Schlebusch analysed genomes from the remains of three 2,year old Stone Age hunter-gatherers in S.

They estimate the first modern human population divergence time to between , and , years ago. See Schlebusch et al , , Science , vol p This is in line with the previous discovery last year of anatomically modern human remains found in Morocco that date from , and , years ago. Primitive women had hugely bulging biceps. However research on the skeletons of prehistoric Central European women agriculturalists and living European women of known behaviour athletes reveals that Central European agriculturalist women 7, years ago to over a thousand years ago reveal that these women between 7, years ago and 2, years ago had bigger biceps than modern women rowing athletes.

Indeed Neolithic, Bronze Age, and Iron Age women were most similar to those of living semi-elite rowers. Conversely, the past thousand years has seen increased automation beginning with windmills for grinding from over a thousand years ago. Science Advances , vol. Plugging these figures into the SOVA hydrocode global climate model and they deduce that surface temperatures were likely to have been significantly reduced for several years and ocean temperatures affected for hundreds of years after the Chicxulub impact.

So after the shockwave, near hemispheric ejecta debris and acid rain, there would have been several years of global winter. See Quantifying the release of climate-active gases by large meteorite impacts with a case study of Chicxulub. Geophysical Research Letters , vol. The implication is that life is common in the Universe. Japanese researchers, led by Takayuki Tashiro, have discovered likely organic carbon in the form of graphite from Canadian Archaean strata.

The isotope carbon 13C is discriminated against by life processes such as photosynthesis, compared to the common carbon isotope: The researchers found that the 3. See Tashiro et al , , Early trace of life from 3. The Late Heavy Bombardment of the Earth took place 3. There has been previous speculation that as the entirety of the Earth was never completely destroyed during the bombardment, that early life had it got going could have survived the bombardment with in just a few million years of the oceans forming.

This latest news seems to support that theory. Two age-related genes found in nematode worm. Nematode worms are very common in nature many are microscopic and many live parasitically inside animals and on animals and plants as well as in soil. Caenorhabditis elegans is a favourite for biologists to study ageing as its life span is only two weeks. Now, Chinese researchers have elucidated that the expression of variations DNA polymorphisms of two genes from C. See Yin et al. Cholera genomes reveal continual Asian source.

Latin America has experienced two of the largest cholera epidemics in modern history; one in and the other in Also, cholera has mutated into local lineages in Central America but these present as different diseases. Both papers show that there are no long-term local reservoirs of true cholera and outbreaks are not necessarily linked to climate events. See Domman et al , , Science , vol. First transgenic skin replacement made, and it covers early the whole body.

They then cultured the skin and grafted it back. Checks were made to ensure that the healthy gene insertion was not in an area of DNA known to turn other genes on and off and this should avoid future skin cancers arising from the treatment, however observation will be required. So far things look very promising. See Hirsch et al , , Regeneration of the entire human epidermis using transgenic stem cells, Nature vol. Genetically modified GM , unbruisable apples are now on sale in the US.

This means that in the US you will be able to get bags of sliced apple! Such produce may well be changing the nature of the public debate around GM crops. It has long been theorised that a large black hole lies at the heart of our galaxy.

They have now seen that point as a source or radio emission itself surrounded by gas. The observations are in line with the black hole being some , times as heavy as the Sun. Super nova lasts days. Super novae are massive explosions of stars usually at the end of their main-sequence life. They typically shine for a few days before they dim and a neutron star results. Sometimes, with large stars the energy released can be tremendous equivalent to that of about million Suns with an explosive shine that can last for roughly days, before fading: The astronomers hypothesize that the star must be repeatedly exploding shedding shells and these shells then collide emitting more light.

Common red dwarf stars may kill life. Such stars with planets in their habitable zone are candidates for places that could possibly harbour life. Following that line of thought, they could be the most common star systems to harbour life.

The arguments against include that red dwarves are so cool that habitable planets have to be so close that they could become tidally, or near-tidally, locked and so not have the more uniform planetary surface temperature conducive to life being potentially common on most of the surface.

Now, Kristina Kislyakova of the Austrian Academy of Sciences in Graz, Austria, and her colleagues suggest that there could be another factor precluding life on such Earth-like planets in red dwarves habitable zones: Nature Astronomy , doi: A close, Earth-sized planet Rossb has been found by European astronomers. Orbiting Ross, it is just 11 light years away. Ross at 11 light years may not be the closest star to Earth compared to Proxima Centauri that is 4.

See Bonfils et al , , A temperate exo-Earth around a quiet M dwarf at 3. If this belt is analogous to the Kuiper belt then this would be expected as is Proxima Centauri than our sun. The past half a decade has seen a huge growth in the number of exoplanet detections, but the planetary systems vary considerably both in planet type including super-Earths and super gas giants and in their distribution around their parent star. At first glance, there seems little similarity between star-type and the planetary system around it.

They have found that while planetary systems do vary, and do vary with different star types, the similarities of planetary systems around the same type of stars is greater than the differences: Millholland et al , , Astrophysical Journal Letters , vol.

Rivers and lakes on Mars possibly explained? Research published in Nature Geoscience overcomes the paradox that while sediments suggest that water flowed on Mars between 3.

The new suggestion is that not only back then was Mars atmosphere a little thicker, but that occasionally Mars angle of tilt becomes extreme so providing high seasonality. This would enable parts of Mars where there are methane hydrates in the soil to release their methane and so warm the world for up to a million years at a time within this million year window.

Water could then flow to form the river and lake geomorphology seen. Kite et al , , Methane bursts as a trigger for intermittent lake-forming climates on post-Noachian Mars.

Nature Geoscience , vol. Clays are widespread on Mars but need substantial water to explain their formation: Clay minerals, known as phyllosilicates, preserve a record of the interaction of water with rocks dating back to the Noachian period of Martian history, which lasted from about 4. US researchers led by Kevin Cannon have produced a model based on their laboratory experiments to account for the widespread clay formation that does not necessitate widespread water on the early Mars.

They say that during the very early Mars its surface was a magma ocean that could well have interacted with its atmosphere to form clay. The magma then cooled to form a solid mantle, volcanoes then resurfaced the crust burying the clays. Meteorites from the late heavy bombardment would then have churned the surface leaving patches of clay all over the planet.

Their buried primordial clay layer theory could also explain the anomalously low density of the Martian crust. Also, similar clays to the proposed primordial Martian clays could have formed on the early Earth but have seen been lost due to plate tectonic re-working of the surface. See Cannon et al , , Nature , vol. Not a bit of it: Light pollution is getting worse. See Kyba , , Science Advances , vol 3 , e The man who saved the world from nuclear war died unnoticed for months!

Previous estimates of volcanic super-eruptions suggested that they took place roughly once every 45, and , years. This was comforting as the last super eruption was Taupo in New Zealand some 25, years ago.

However a new analysis of the volcanic database, by British geoscientists together with a mathematician the lead author based at Bristol University, estimates the gap between such eruptions as being between 5. This means that we are overdue for such an eruption. Tolkien to be made a saint? The Mass included prayer for his Cause for Beatification to be opened.

Instead, we get a few hungry folks chomping on a few necks. I just wanted the promised apocalypse! Oh well, I did like the story, and will watch it again, now that I know what to expect One person found this helpful. Whatever the case may be, Cannibal Apocalypse is a definite must-buy.

Flash foward to Atlanta, Saxon returns to his normal life after the war and just as luck would have it, Morghen shows up and the two embark on a cannabalistic murder spree.

As one could guess, this film was heavily edited, released under a number of different titles and was a Video Nasty favorite for years. Now you can find out why! But when I saw it for the first time, I thought it was a good movie, but why name it Cannibal Apocalypse? There were a few scenes that showed the infected soldiers bite people, but they mostly used their hands or weapons to kill people. Other than that, it was a good movie.

Also, it is worth it checking the extras that come along with the movie, especially Cannibal Apocalypse Redux. It interviews two of the stars and the director about how the movie was handled and so forth, especially the part that Quentin Tarantino thinks of this as one of his favorite movies ever. Also, it shows an alternate version of the movie that was edited on video here in the US.

However, if you want the check out the Butchering of Cannibal Apocalypse option, you might want to come closer to read the text because of its small print. Other than that, good movie to see.
