  1. Wow, even Don Jr. opposes the giant mine in fat bear country

    The opposition to a giant mine in the heart of Alaska's Bristol Bay — a land teeming with fat bears and the world's largest run of sockeye salmon — is formidable.

    Ecologists, bear biologists, Bristol Bay locals, tribes, the majority of Alaskans, and the Obama Administration's EPA have opposed the plan to build a colossal mining district in the region's watershed. They've now been joined by an odd bedfellow, the conservative, left-bashing Donald Trump Jr., who recently posted a misleading, far-right video on Twitter about an unproven coronavirus drug and shoots megafauna as a hobby.

    Trump Jrtweeted on Tuesday that "As a sportsman who has spent plenty of time in the area I agree 100%. The headwaters of Bristol Bay and the surrounding fishery are too unique and fragile to take any chances with."   Read more...

  5. The science that proves making your tea in the microwave is a truly appalling act

    If you've ever had a furious debate about the ungodly act of microwaving your cup of tea and how "it's the same" as boiling the kettle, you're about to lose — not only to Britain but to science.

    Researchers have explained the process your zapped cuppa goes through in a new study published in the American Institute of Physics' peer-reviewed online journal AIP Advances, and why you might not be getting the best results from making it this way over the traditional kettle/stove method.

    The study, conducted by researchers at the University of Electronic Science and Technology of China, looked at how heating liquid works in a microwave, and how the electric field that acts as a warming source causes the liquid to end up different temperatures at the top and bottom of the cup. A good cup of tea is all about getting uniform temperature throughout your water and, though many scholars have studied uniformity and how to solve it within the microwave itself, these researchers have offered up a different possible solution (more on that later).
