Tractor Beam Technology @CoffinDodger (If the typos crap. Blame my keyboard): Reminds me of the movie "The Forgotten " When people got yanked into the sky. It was awesome..I screamed lol. Kinda like the Skyline trailer but extremely faster and one person at a time. Get Outside National Wildlife Federation has worked to connect children and youth with nature for decades, inspiring children through Ranger Rick magazine, working with educators to get kids learning outdoors, and helping parents find new ways to engage their children outside. Today, the amount of time kids spend outside is alarmingly low--only minutes per day--while screen time is at an all time high (upwards of seven hours). NWF has set a new goal to stem the tide and move kids back outdoors: Help NWF Get 10 Million Kids Outdoors!

Stockholm Convention (POPs) Schedule and registration Objectives Increasing Parties’ knowledge on existing guidance to update NIPs, Parties’ understanding of HBCD and other POP-PBDEs listed, and Parties’ capacity to make inventories of POP-PBDEs, as part of the NIP update. Contents Telomeres and Telomerase: The Cellular Timekeepers Telomere shortening causes cellular senescence, making it a major candidate mechanism for a role in aging and a target for anti-aging interventions. In this essay, I review current knowledge on telomere biology and discuss the possible role of telomeres and telomerase in human aging and in cancer.

Education - Colorado Division of Wildlife Colorado Parks and Wildlife is offering a one-time grant opportunity to agency partners that engage in hunting and angling outreach and education. The Partners in Outdoors Grants are available to non-profits, public shooting ranges, and local city and county governments in Colorado. With a total of $150,000 in funds available, eligible partners can apply for grants ranging from $10,000 to $25,000. INCR (Investor Network on Climate Risk (Ceres)) The Investor Network on Climate Risk (INCR) is a network of more than 119 institutional investors representing more than $14 trillion in assets committed to addressing climate change and other key sustainability risks, while building low-carbon investment opportunities. INCR includes the largest institutional investors in North America as well as leading religious and labor funds, asset managers and socially responsible investment funds. In 2013, INCR turned 10 years old, celebrating a decade of investor action on climate risk. Watch the video below to hear from founding members, Ceres staff and other financial leaders about the impact that investors had on corporate responses to climate change, policy advances addressing climate risk and the global movement to mobilize investors to reduce climate change risks from their portfolios. Learn about INCR's major achievements over the first 10 years. INCR members are:

cellular ageing (Page 1) - Genes, Genetics and DNA - Ask a Biologist Q&A I was lucky enough to be present at a wonderfully informative lecture by Elizabeth Blackburn last week the co-discoverer, with her then grad-student, of telomeraze. There has been a lot of fantastic work done on this subject, but much is still unknown as well. Telomeres are required for cellular division, they prevent genomic instability, and when they get too short, cell division ceases. Yu et al. 1990 published a paper in Nature which showed that if you inhibit the action of telomerase in lab cells, then these cells cease division after only 20 cycles. Telomerase the enzyme mentioned above, lengthens the telomeres, and in doing so extends the cells lifespan by protecting the chromosomes, by maintaining these telomere caps.

Plug in to Nature > Plug in to Nature Plug in to Nature is a comprehensive analysis to determine effective ways to combat Nature Deficit Disorder in Larimer County. Funded by Great Outdoors Colorado as an initiative stemming from their 2010 Strategic Plan, this project will engage the community to determine the current level of connections families feel for nature on conserved lands and parks throughout Larimer County. During the project there will be many ways you can participate and lend your perspective.
