Using UN databases, here we show that the international agro-food trade network (IFTN), with nodes and edges representing countries and import-export fluxes, respectively, has evolved into a highly heterogeneous, complex supply-chain network.

Wormhole Illusion Causes Magnetic Field To Move Through Space Undetected Scientists have developed a magnetic system that mimics the behavior of a wormhole – theorized to allow space-time to be bent, and vast distances to be traveled in an instant – but it absolutely is not an actual wormhole, so don’t get too excited. However, what they did, which was to make a propagating magnetic field invisible, is actually very interesting. You can get excited again. The research, by a team from the Autonomous University of Barcelona (UAB), was published in the journal Scientific Reports.

FRONTIERS IN MICROBIOLOGY 06/07/15 Crassostrea gigas mortality in France: the usual suspect, a herpes virus, may not be the killer in this polymicrobial opportunistic disease 1LEMAR UMR 6539, Ifremer, Argenton-en-Landunvez, France2Unité Physiologie Fonctionnelle des Organismes Marins, Ifremer, Plouzané, France3CNRS, Equipe Génomique des Vibrios, LBI2M, UPMC Paris 06, UMR 8227, Integrative Biology of Marine Models, Sorbonne Universités, Roscoff, France Successive disease outbreaks in oyster (Crassostrea gigas) beds in France have resulted in dramatic losses in production, and subsequent decline in the oyster-farming industry. Deaths of juvenile oysters have been associated with the presence of a herpes virus (OsHV-1 μvar) and bacterial populations of the genus Vibrio. Although the pathogenicity of OsHV-1 μvar, as well as several strains of Vibrio has been demonstrated by experimental infections, our understanding of the complexity of infections occurring in the natural environment remains limited.

On the Viability of Conspiratorial Beliefs Abstract Conspiratorial ideation is the tendency of individuals to believe that events and power relations are secretly manipulated by certain clandestine groups and organisations. Many of these ostensibly explanatory conjectures are non-falsifiable, lacking in evidence or demonstrably false, yet public acceptance remains high. prototypes of absurd inventions by patrick strattner sep 25, 2013 prototypes of absurd inventions by patrick strattner prototypes of absurd inventions by patrick strattnerautomatic upper and lower full mouth tooth brushall images courtesy of patrick strattner german photographer patrick strattner fantasizes about ways to make everyday life easier and a little more enjoyable in ‘prototypes’. the series of images depict smart, full-scale constructions of abstracted objects, made up of various gadgets and devices. their humorous approach lend whimsy to mundane tasks, like brushing both the tops and bottoms of your teeth, carrying groceries, and drying out soggy arm-pit stains on t-shirts. strattners’s creative process includes conceptualizing the idea for the quirky object, planning out its execution and construction, and finally photographing it. the absurd inventions explore the idea of a product-driven society, and encourage the audience to fantasize about the playfulness in the seemingly ordinary. portable sweaty armpit t-shirt dryer h/t

FAO 11/05/11 Animal diseases in Africa and their linkages with climate change 11 May 2011 - Throughout the African continent, diseases that are transmitted through livestock or wildlife can cause death and illnesses in susceptible human populations. Some examples include Crimean-Congo Hemorrhagic Fever (CCHF), a transmissible tick-borne viral infection; Rift Valley Fever (RVF), a mosquito-borne viral disease mainly affecting ruminants; Lassa Fever (LF), an acute viral illness that is transmitted by Mastomys rodents; and Trypanosomiasis, a tsetse-fly transmitted infectious disease unique to the tropics. Outbreaks of these diseases brings further impoverishment to Africans who are already poor, food insecure, and suffering from other health problems such as malnutrition, tuberculosis, HIV/AIDS, malaria, and diarrheal diseases. Now, as in the past, Africa is experiencing a number of phenomena that may influence the emergence of diseases in animals and humans. Aside from animal diseases, droughts are particularly disruptive.
