Can Caffeine Cause Chest Pains? Chest pains may occur in some people after drinking caffeine. Caffeine is a stimulant drug that affects the central nervous system and helps you feel more awake. Chest pain from caffeine consumption is the result of inflammation and tightness in your airways and lungs.

AWS' Glacier and RedShift creep into to Australia Amazon Web Services' (AWS') Glacier data deep freeze* is now available in the cloudy company's Australian region. Glacier offers very cheap storage, but with the caveat of restore times that stretch into hours. The service is generally held to store data on tape.

Another reason AWS opened down under was latency: many customers complained that even the nearby Singapore region added too many milliseconds of transfer time.

The commercials, which have received funding from local environmental group CAFNEC, will be aired during prime time on Seven and WIN in the coming weeks. Filmmaker Noel Castley-Wright said he wanted to raise awareness about the doubts surrounding the plan to cut back the trees near Cairns Library and the Novotel Oasis resort in an attempt to move on the flying foxes. "There's a rush to act and move the bats without any thought of the consequence to what's going to happen," he said.

What It Feels Like to Get Bitten by a Black Widow Spider - Megan Garber A writer is subjected to one of the most painful experiences known to man, and lives to tell about it. In 1983, the entomologist Justin Schmidt published the results of a uniquely unenviable project: He had created a scale that attempted to quantify the pain inflicted by various forms of insect bites and stings. Some stings cause no pain in humans, thus meriting a 0 on Schmidt's scale; insects such as bees and wasps -- which inflict a wound that is definitely painful, but not excruciating -- warrant a 2 on the scale.
