Higher temperatures affect survival of new coronavirus, pathologist says

Research from a laboratory-grown copy of the coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) that causes the COVID-19 illness shows that heat affects the virus and impacts its behavior, a top pathologist said new research has shown. But other infectious disease experts aren't yet convinced. “In cold environments, there is longer virus survival than warm ones,” Hong Kong University pathology professor John Nicholls told AccuWeather exclusively. Nicholls and colleagues from a team at Sun Yat-sen University in Guangzhou, China, previously produced a study, which was published in February and has yet to be peer-reviewed, noting the effect of heat. “Temperature could significantly change COVID-19 transmission,” the authors note in the study.

Bartholomew, the scion of an Edinburgh mapmaking family and cartographer royal to King George V, published “An Atlas of Economic Geography”. It was a book intended for schoolboys and contained everything a thrusting young entrepreneur, imperialist, trader or traveller could need. As well as the predictable charts of rainfall, temperature and topography, it had maps showing where you could find rubber, cotton or rice; maps showing the distribution of commercial languages, so that if you wanted to do business in Indonesia you knew to do so in Dutch; and maps showing the spread of climatic diseases, so that if you did find yourself in Indonesia you knew to look out for tropical dysentery.

It also contained the map you see here, which told you how long it would take to get there from London: between 20 and 30 days.

120 animals that have disappeared in the last 100 years

Es difícil calcular el número de animales extintos y la cifra real siempre es más alta que el número estimado. En algunos casos se puede presumir que una especie ha dejado de existir al no ser vista durante años, sin embargo se debe esperar a que se declare oficialmente este estatus por la Unión Internacional para la Conservación de la Naturaleza. Lo más complejo de este tema, es que la extinción no es un problema histórico, sino que un tema contemporáneo. La lista original contaba con cerca de 120 animales que se han extinto sólo en el último siglo (no incluidos los insectos porque son muy difíciles de catalogar).

Nosotros decidimos hacer una selección de los 40 que consideramos más importantes, únicos o extraños para mostrarles.

The Last Great Auk

Its ribbed beak was huge and unwieldy, its legs were too short and its stubby wings were far too small to carry its big body into the air. In these regards, the Great Auk’s clumsy appearance rivals that of the Dodo. And that’s not the only thing these two birds have in common. For the Great Auk too, was driven extinct by human cruelty and carelessness. The Icelandic fishermen Sigurðr Islefsson, Jón Brandsson and Ketil Ketilsson saw the last living Great Auks, in June 1844.
