  1. Vibrant Algae - Maybe more of our food for the Future? - Image courtesy Marek Miś, Nikon Small World Looking more like an extraterrestrial life form than one of Earth's organisms, this algal Cosmarium was magnified a hundred times. By catching the eye with its assortment of vibrant hues, the image won sixth place for Marek Miś of Suwalki, Poland.
  2. This is not a Pussy I want to see, yet I have seen something like it on my tomato plants! It's a Puss Moth caterpillar in defensive pose. It rears up like that to make itself look bigger so other things won't eat it. It doesn't have 'babies' - it IS a baby. The adult is a moth.

  4. EVEN ANIMALS SHOW LOVE TO OTHERS, HOW MUCH SHOULD WE? - THIS IS A TRUE STORY! - ENJOY! - A NICE STORY LONG BUT GOOD! (Isaiah 65:25) “The wolf and the lamb themselves will feed as one, and the lion will eat straw just like the bull; and as for the serpent, his food will be dust. They will do no harm nor cause any ruin in all my holy mountain,” Jehovah has said." (Hosea 2:18) And for them I shall certainly conclude a covenant in that day in connection with the wild beast of the field and with the flying creature of the heavens and the creeping thing of the ground, and the bow and the sword and war I shall break out of the land, and I will make them lie down in security." Police in Warwickshire , England, opened a garden shed and found a whimpering, cowering dog. The dog had been locked in the shed and abandoned. It was dirty and malnourished, and had quite clearly been abused. In an act of kindness, the police took the dog, which was a female greyhound, to the Nuneaton Warwickshire Wildlife Sanctuary, which is run by a man named Geoff Grewcock, and known as a haven for animals abandoned, orphaned, or otherwise in need. Geoff and the other sanctuary staff went to work with two aims: to restore the dog to full health, and to win her trust. It took several weeks, but eventually both goals were achieved. They named her Jasmine, and they started to think about finding her an adoptive home. Jasmine, however, had other ideas. No one quite remembers how it came about, but Jasmine started welcoming all animal arrivals at the sanctuary. It would not matter if it were a puppy, a fox cub, a rabbit or, any other lost or hurting animal. Jasmine would just peer into the box or cage and, when and where possible, deliver a welcoming lick. Geoff relates one of the early incidents. "We had two puppies that had been abandoned by a nearby railway line. One was a Lakeland Terrier cross and another was a Jack Russell Doberman cross. They were tiny when they arrived at the center, and Jasmine approached them and grabbed one by the scruff of the neck in her mouth and put him on the settee. Then she fetched the other one and sat down with them, cuddling them." "But she is like that with all of our animals, even the rabbits. She takes all the stress out of them, and it helps them to not only feel close to her, but to settle into their new surroundings. She has done the same with the fox and badger cubs, she licks the rabbits and guinea pigs, and even lets the birds perch on the bridge of her nose." Jasmine, the timid, abused, deserted waif, became the animal sanctuary's resident surrogate mother, a role for which she might have been born. The list of orphaned and abandoned youngsters she has cared for comprises five fox cubs, four badger cubs, fifteen chicks, eight guinea pigs, two stray puppies and fifteen rabbits - and one roe deer fawn. Tiny Bramble, eleven weeks old, was found semi-conscious in a field. Upon arrival at the sanctuary, Jasmine cuddled up to her to keep her warm, and then went into the full foster-mum role. Jasmine the greyhound showers Bramble the roe deer with affection, and makes sure nothing is matted. "They are inseparable," says Geoff. "Bramble walks between her legs, and they keep kissing each other. They walk together round the sanctuary. It's a real treat to see them." Jasmine will continue to care for Bramble until she is old enough to be returned to woodland life. When that happens, Jasmine will not be lonely. She will be too busy showering love and affection on the next orphan or victim of abuse. Pictured from the left are: "Toby," a stray Lakeland dog; "Bramble," orphaned roe deer; "Buster," a stray Jack Russell; a dumped rabbit; "Sky," an injured barn owl; and "Jasmine," with a mother's heart doing best what a caring mother would do... and such is the order of God's Creation...

  6. Bright Brain Image courtesy Jennifer Peters and Michael Taylor, Nikon Small World What looks like a tangle of Christmas lights is actually the brain of a zebrafish embryo, winningly photographed for the Small World Microphotography Competition. Winners of the international contest were announced Tuesday. This shot—taken by Jennifer Peters and Michael Taylor of St. Jude Children's Research Hospital and magnified 20 times—took first prize. It's believed to be the first image ever to show the formation of the blood-brain barrier in a live animal. The barrier is a protective system of cells that filter the blood that flows to the brain. It allows nutrients and other necessities to pass but keeps out bacteria and other pollutants. To create this shot, Peters and Taylor injected fluorescent proteins into a transparent zebrafish embryo. That let them see the brain's endothelial cells—which line the inner surface of blood and lymphatic vessels—and watch the development of a blood-brain barrier in real-time. Their three-dimensional image was made with a confocal microscope, which colors blood vessels differently at different depths. (Confocal lenses capture light from a single plane of focus, rather than all available light.) Peters and Taylor stacked their colored images and compressed them into a single shot to show the complexity of the phenomenon they witnessed.

Image courtesy Michael John Bridge, Nikon Small World Magnified 60 times, the eye organ of a larval fruit fly (Drosophila melanogaster) is awash in surreal color. This image—which netted seventh place for Michael John Bridge of the University of Utah—was made with a confocal lens. That makes different levels of the organ simultaneously visible.
  10. Sarcastic fringe head !! - NEW TO ME? - I WILL KEEP AWAY, YOU.... ~ The sarcastic fringehead (Neoclinus blanchardi) is a ferocious fish which has a large mouth and aggressive territorial behaviour. When two fringeheads have a territorial battle, they wrestle by pressing their distended mouths against each other, as if they were kissing. This allows them to determine which is the larger fish, which establishes dominance. They can be up to 30 centimetres (12 in) long and are mostly scaleless with great pectoral fins and reduced pelvic fins. With highly compressed bodies, some may be so widened as to appear eel-like. They tend to hide inside shells or crevices. After the female spawns under a rock or in clam burrows the male guards the eggs.
  11. The Exotic and Rare Rupicola rupicola! Here’s a list of highly unique-looking species of birds. Some birds are very colorful, some birds have awesome bills and some birds have extra ling beak and long legs. Other birds have magnificent plumage and tail feathers and others are simply pretty and adorable. Still, some birds are creepy and awful looking and some bird species are extremely unique in appearance. 1.) Guianan Cock-of-the-Rock (Rupicola rupicola) Image Source The Guianan Cock-of-the-Rock is a brightly-colored bird with a unique half-moon crest which is used as competitive display to attract female. One thing extraordinary about this bird is its coloration; the bill, legs, feathers are all orange. Not only that, even the bird’s skin is also orange.

  17. Scientists Found an Edible Mushroom That Eats Plastic, and It Could Clean Our Landfills Elias Marat Whether we like it or not, our society has become completely reliant on plastic. From food preservation to water transportation, computer technology to healthcare and medicine, plastic can be found in nearly every facet of the human experience. But as we well know, plastic is a double-edged sword, with massive amounts of plastic waste not only piling up in landfills, but floating in the most remote depths of our oceans and water supplies. And despite our knowledge of plastic’s harmful effects on the environment, we’ve become so reliant on plastic that there seems to be no end in sight. In fact, plastic production is growing on a yearly basis–and posing a potentially mortal threat to us all. However, a newly-discovered type of mushroom could not only play a crucial role in slashing plastic pollution, but could have myriad other uses in addressing the environmental crises the planet faces. Discovered in 2012 by Yale University students, Pestalotiopsis microspora is a rare species of mushroom from the Amazon rainforest that’s capable of subsisting on a diet of pure plastic, or more accurately, the main ingredient in plastic–polyurethane–before converting the human-made ingredient into purely organic matter. And not only can Pestalotiopsis microspora live off of our plastic waste, it can also live without oxygen–meaning that the rare breed of mushroom would make an ideal agent for landfill clean-up, literally from the bottom-up. While the idea sounds fantastic, some scientists have expressed hope that the plastic-consuming fungi can form the basis of the community waste treatment centers of the future–replacing our current practice of dumping our trash into centralized, massive landfills with small, mushroom-centered community composting centers or even home recycling kits, according to Epoch Times. And as it turns out, Pestalotiopsis microspora isn’t alone in the world of plastic-eating mushrooms–and some of its plastic-consuming kin are event perfectly safe for us humans to consume. In a study led by Katharina Unger for Utrecht University in the Netherlands, oyster mushrooms and other types of mushrooms were placed in agar cups with plastic waste and held in a climate-controlled dome-shaped environment. After about a month, the roots of the mushroom consumed and transformed the plastic into an edible biomass–or food–that was completely free of any toxicity from the polyurethane. Not only was the finished product completely free of plastic, but they also had an appealing taste, according to Unger, who described them as “sweet with the smell of anise or licorice.” Yes, that’s right: for the very first time in history, plastic trash could be a part of our food chain–in a deliberate and surprisingly healthy way. Indeed, such a discovery–if refined–could be a part of a novel solution to food scarcity in a world brimming-over with plastic waste yet scarce on food for hundreds of millions of people. “Our research partner [Utrecht University] expects that the digestion will go much quicker once processes are fully researched and optimized,” Unger told Dezeen magazine, adding that her team “imagined it as being used with a community or small farm setting.” The benefits of plastic-eating mushrooms seem limitless. At the State of the World’s Fungi 2018 event in Kew Gardens, London, fungi that process polyurethane were also found to be suitable as “mushroom bricks,” or a durable and sustainable building material that could be suitable for building homes. The management and elimination of plastic waste is among the greatest challenges we face in saving our environment. But if the natural rate of decomposition can be reduced from 400 years to a mere few months, then these fungi could soon be taking over the world.

  20. The Role of Cooperation in Nature In nature, “staying alive is as much about bonding with your neighbors as it is about growing and reproducing.”—“Liaisons of Life.” THE ocean was calm and quiet. The only disturbance was the din of dozens of seabirds. Their excitement indicated that something was happening below the surface. Suddenly, bubbles appeared, gradually forming a white ring. Moments later, two massive, dark forms appeared in the clear water in the middle of the ring. They were two humpback whales rising from the briny depths, their baleen-lined mouths agape. At the surface, they closed their massive jaws, spouted, and dived to repeat the performance. The two whales were working as a team corralling and consuming masses of shrimplike krill. As if performing an underwater ballet, the 40-ton mammals dived below the crustaceans and swam in a tight circle while releasing air from their blowholes. This ingenious maneuver formed a “net” of bubbles around the krill. The whales then ascended vertically through the middle of their “net” and feasted on their prey.

  23. Supernova Survivor A supernova explosion marks the violent end of a massive star’s life. The death throes are tremendously energetic, with the supernova capable of outshining an entire galaxy. Some of these blasts are so brilliant that they have been spotted in our daytime skies. The wreckage left behind - a stellar debris field known as a supernova remnant (SNR) - glows brightly in the X-ray spectrum for thousands of years. These are truly cataclysmic events. What could possibly survive such devastation? Well, on rare occasions, a companion star can. Researchers are studying one such possible example in the Large Magellanic Cloud, some 160,000 light-years from Earth. Lying within an ionized field of hydrogen called DEM L241 is a supernova remnant. The Chandra X-ray Observatory has found an point-like X-ray source, probably the neutron star or black hole created when the star went supernova. This X-ray source is at the same location as a massive star in the SNR. The data suggests this is a binary pair, with the neutron star or black hole in orbit with a star much larger than our Sun. If confirmed, this would be only the third instance of such a binary pair found in a supernova remnant. Image caption: Chandra X-ray data (purple) shows the supernova remnant, while ground based telescopes were used to highlight the ionized hydrogen cloud (yellow and cyan). Optical data (white) from the Digitized Sky Survey shows the stars in this image, which is roughly 1,100 light-years across. -JF Image credit: X-ray: NASA/CXC/SAO/F.Seward et al; Optical: NOAO/CTIO/MCELS, DSS Source:
