Three Supermoons in a Row Three Supermoons in a Row July 10, 2014: In June of last year, a full Moon made headlines. The news media called it a "supermoon" because it was 14% bigger and 30% brighter than other full Moons of 2013. Around the world, people went outside to marvel at its luminosity. If you thought one supermoon was bright, how about three….? The full Moons of summer 2014—July 12th, August 10th, and Sept. 9th--will all be supermoons. The scientific term for the phenomenon is "perigee moon." This coincidence happens three times in 2014. It might seem that such a sequence must be rare. "Generally speaking, full Moons occur near perigee every 13 months and 18 days, so it's not all that unusual," he says. In practice, it's not always easy to tell the difference between a supermoon and an ordinary full Moon. Chester expects most reports of giant Moons this summer to be … illusory. The illusion occurs when the Moon is near the horizon. Indeed it is. Credits: Author: Dr.
Sixth-Grader's Science Fair Finding Shocks Ecologists hide captionLauren Arrington's sixth-grade research project is cited in a science journal. Courtesy of Lauren Arrington Lauren Arrington's sixth-grade research project is cited in a science journal. When 12-year-old Lauren Arrington heard about her sixth-grade science project, she knew she wanted to study lionfish. Her project showed that the lionfish can survive in nearly fresh water. hide captionScientists previously underestimated the ability of the lionfish to live in less salty water. Mark Ralston/AFP/Getty Images Scientists previously underestimated the ability of the lionfish to live in less salty water. "Scientists were doing plenty of tests on them, but they just always assumed they were in the ocean," Lauren, now 13, tells NPR's Kelly McEvers. In the beginning, she wanted to conduct her test by placing the lionfish in cages at different points in the river, but she had to simplify the project. Lionfish had been found to live in water with salt levels of 20 parts per thousand.
Bouteille DIY Top Timbres What a great way to recycle those old Bottle Tops! We go through a LOT of milk in our house so why not make something FUN out of their lids!

Pathogens On A Plane: How To Stay Healthy In Flight : Goats and Soda hide captionSuspicious travel companions: Bacteria can survive for days on surfaces inside a plane. But that doesn't mean you have to take these critters home with you. Benjamin Arthur for NPR Suspicious travel companions: Bacteria can survive for days on surfaces inside a plane. But that doesn't mean you have to take these critters home with you. From Ebola in West Africa to chikungunya in the Caribbean, the world has had plenty of strange — and scary — outbreaks this year. Some pathogens have even landed in the U.S. To stay healthy on a flight, Dr. 1. 2. Nobody along the way caught Middle East respiratory syndrome. Microbiologist James Barbaree and his team at Auburn University have been trying a few simple experiments to figure out the first question. The airlines gave the scientists parts on commercial jets where spread might take place — a steel toilet button, the rubber armrest, the plastic tray table and, of course, "the seat pocket in front of you." Not likely, Gendreau says.

Order Matters: Using the 5E Model to Align Teaching with How People Learn Pot-in-pot refrigerator A pot-in-pot refrigerator, clay pot cooler or zeer (Arabic: زير) is an evaporative cooling refrigeration device which does not use electricity. It uses a porous outer earthenware pot, lined with wet sand, contains an inner pot (which can be glazed to prevent penetration by the liquid) within which the food is placed - the evaporation of the outer liquid draws heat from the inner pot. The device can be used to cool any substance. History There is some evidence that evaporative cooling was used as early as the Old Kingdom of Egypt, around 2500 B.C. Despite being developed in Northern Africa, the technology appears to have been forgotten with the advent of modern electrical refrigerators. In rural northern Nigeria in the 1990s Mohamed Bah Abba developed the Pot-in-Pot Preservation Cooling System, consisting of a small earthenware pot placed inside a larger one, and the space between the two filled with moist sand.
