Gagging order for scientists probing dolphin deaths By Daily Mail Reporter Updated: 12:39 GMT, 26 March 2011 Scientists probing the deaths of baby dolphins in the area affected by last year's BP oil spill have been ordered by the government not to speak about the project. Wildlife biologists who have been contracted by the National Marine Fisheries Service to investigate a huge rise in dolphin mortality this year must keep their findings confidential. The gagging order was imposed because the review of the deaths is part of the federal criminal investigation into last year's BP disaster. Death on the sands: Evidence from the spike in deaths in the last three months is being collected for a criminal case, civil litigation and a detailed study of the environmental effects of last year's mammoth oil spill About 90 dolphins died last year, but this year the toll has jumped to 200 already.

Trouble Sleeping? Make Sure You Turn Glowing Gadgets Off After Sunset There's growing concern among experts that the proliferation of glowing gadgets like computers may fool your brain into thinking that it's still daytime after the sun has gone down. Exposure during the night can disturb sleep patterns and exacerbate insomnia. Such concerns are not new -- Thomas Edison may have created these problems when he invented the light bulb. But the problem has grown worse thanks to the popularity of Apple's new slate computer, the iPad. Many consumers use an iPad to read at night, and unlike paper books or e-book readers like the Amazon Kindle, which does not emit its own light, the iPad's screen shines light directly into your eyes from a relatively close distance. According to CNN: "That makes the iPad and laptops more likely to disrupt sleep patterns than, say, a television sitting across the bedroom or a lamp that illuminates a paper book, both of which shoot far less light straight into the eye, researchers said."

Ptak Science Books Conseils Nutrition.TV: Centre d’information sur la nutrition | D BP gets OK to dump mercury into Lake Michigan By Bobby Carmichael, USA TODAY A BP (BP) refinery in Indiana will be allowed to continue to dump mercury into Lake Michigan under a permit issued by the Indiana Department of Environmental Management. The permit exempts the BP plant at Whiting, Ind., 3 miles southeast of Chicago, from a 1995 federal regulation limiting mercury discharges into the Great Lakes to 1.3 ounces per year. The BP plant reported releasing 3 pounds of mercury through surface water discharges each year from 2002 to 2005, according to the Toxics Release Inventory, a database on pollution emissions kept by the Environmental Protection Agency that is based on information reported by companies. The permit was issued July 21 in connection with the plant's $3.8 billion expansion, but only late last week began to generate public controversy. The action was denounced by environmental groups and members of Congress. Indiana officials said the amount of mercury released by BP was minor. Share this story:
