Parallel Worlds Probably Exist. Here’s Why. Tiny Weed-Killing Robots Could Make Pesticides Obsolete. Potentially fatal bouts of heat and humidity on the rise, study finds. Intolerable bouts of extreme humidity and heat which could threaten human survival are on the rise across the world, suggesting that worst-case scenario warnings about the consequences of global heating are already occurring, a new study has revealed.
Scientists have identified thousands of previously undetected outbreaks of the deadly weather combination in parts of Asia, Africa, Australia, South America and North America, including several hotspots along the US Gulf coast. History of the entire world, i guess. A quantum experiment suggests there’s no such thing as objective reality. People who think their opinions are superior to others are most prone to overestimating their relevant knowledge and ignoring chances to learn more.

Non-survivable humid heatwaves for over 500 million people – Climate Guide. Researchers at MIT warn that if climate change remains unchecked (Business As Usual-scenario = RCP 8.5) over half a billion people will, from 2070 onwards, experience humid heat waves that will kill even healthy people in the shade within 6 hours.
The Wet Bulb Temperature (WBT) would exceed 35°C (95°F), at which the body – of any mammal – cannot cool itself, overheats and shuts down. Three regions were studied: China (2018), South Asia (2017) and the Persian Gulf (2015). The researchers predict (at RCP 8.5) WBT exceeding 35°C about once every decade for the Northern Plains in China (400+ million people), at locations in the Chota Nagpur plateau, northeastern India, and Bangladesh in South Asia (70+ million people). Persian Gulf regions that would be affected include cities such as Doha, Qatar, Abu Dhabi, Dubai (UAE) and Bandar Abbas (Iran). The Tiny Swiss Company That Thinks It Can Help Stop Climate Change.

Soy formula feeding during infancy associated with severe menstrual pain in adulthood. News Release Friday, November 9, 2018 New research suggests that infant girls fed soy formula are more likely to develop severe menstrual pain as young adults.
The finding adds to the growing body of literature that suggests exposure to soy formula during early life may have detrimental effects on the reproductive system. The study appears online in the journal Human Reproduction. Scientists at the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS), part of the National Institutes of Health, along with collaborators from Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville, Tennessee, and the Henry Ford Health System in Detroit, examined data from 1,553 African-American women, aged 23-35, participating in the NIEHS Study of Environment, Lifestyle, and Fibroids (SELF).
NIEHS postdoctoral researcher and lead author Kristen Upson, Ph.D., offered a potential explanation for the association between soy formula and severe menstrual pain.

Our children aren’t being taught to read in ways that line up with what scientists have discovered about how people actually learn. It’s a problem that has been hiding in plain sight for decades.

Evolution - Simplest Explanation Possible. Canada heatwave: more than 30 deaths reported as extreme weather continues. A heatwave rolling through central and eastern Canada has caused the deaths of more than 30 people, with officials warning that the extreme weather conditions are expected to continue for at least another day.
The sweltering combination of heat and humidity, which began on Friday, has been linked by health officials to the deaths of 33 people across southern Quebec. Most of the victims lived alone, had health issues and did not have access to air conditioning, David Kaiser, a physician at Montreal’s public health department, told Reuters. The furnace-like conditions are expected to continue on Thursday, with Environment Canada issuing warnings for southern Quebec, along with parts of Ontario, Nova Scotia and New Brunswick. Montreal reached a high of 34C (93F) degrees on Wednesday, with a humidity index near 40 (104F). Temperatures are expected to cool to 24C on Friday.
