Bloodsuckers Spreading a New Deadly Virus in the U.S. Photo credit: Springtime is here friends and you know what that means: sunshine, walks outdoors, camping trips, field trips for the kids and those ugly, bloodsucking, disease infested ticks. As if ticks on their own are not disgusting enough, the fact that they harbor and spread disease only makes them more repugnant.

Chemicals In Our Waters Are Affecting Humans And Aquatic Life In Unanticipated Ways American and Canadian scientists are finding that out of sight, out of mind can no longer be the approach we take to the chemicals in our waters. Substances that we use everyday are turning up in our lakes, rivers and ocean, where they can impact aquatic life and possibly ourselves. Now these contaminants are affecting aquatic environments and may be coming back to haunt us in unanticipated ways. Derek Muir of Environment Canada and colleagues have determined that of the 30,000 or so chemicals used commercially in the United States and Canada, about 400 resist breaking down in the environment and can accumulate in fish and wildlife.

10 Online Tools for Better Attention & Focus A recent happiness study from Matthew Killingsworth and Daniel Gilbert found that the more our minds wander, the less happy we are. Summing the research, the New York Times wrote, “Whatever people were doing, whether it was having sex or reading or shopping, they tended to be happier if they focused on the activity instead of thinking about something else.” In short, being mentally “present” and focused on the task at hand really does matter – quite a lot, in fact.

Digital Typhoon: Typhoon Images and Information - National Institute of Informatics This site has the comprehensive archive of meteorological satellite "Himawari" images since 1978, and offers a typhoon database of about 200,000 typhoon images since 1979 and typhoon best tracks since 1951 to search by date, name, location, cloud patterns, and so on. Recently this site started to provide typhoon forecast information, but the latest typhoon information, weather forecast, advisories and warnings should be obtained from reliable sources such as "Japan Meteorological Agency: Typhoon Information" and other sites. Updates may be delayed due to the status of network between data sources. Images of past typhoons from 1979 to this year are archived. In the informatics community, there is a growing interest in discovering relevant information from the huge amount of data that is overwhelming even in our everyday life. The canonical URL of this Web site is but is also accessible for the moment.
