No.262778 ViewReplyOriginalReportDownload thread

>Just in time for the hot, humid, bug-bite-riddled summer: Researchers from the University of Florida have confirmed the first known case of a human infected with the mosquito-borne Keystone virus.

>A 16-year-old boy in North Central Florida went to an urgent care clinic after coming down with a fever and a severe rash in August 2016, during the Zika outbreak in Florida and the Caribbean.

>Doctors couldn't figure out what made him sick. They tested for Zika and various other pathogens but hit a series of dead ends.

>"We couldn't identify what was going on," J. Glenn Morris, director of the university's Emerging Pathogens Institute, told NPR member station WUSF. "We screened this with all the standard approaches and it literally took a year and a half of sort of dogged laboratory work to figure out what this virus was."

Atmospheric CO2 Levels Breaks 410 ppm. Highest in 800,000 Years.

No.250918 ViewReplyLast 50OriginalReportDownload thread
The amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere just hit its highest level in 800,000 years and scientists predict deadly consequences.

We have a pretty good idea of what Earth's atmosphere has looked like for the past 800,000 years.

Humans like us —Homo sapiens—evolved only about 200,000 years ago, but ice-core records reveal intricate details of our planet's history from long before humans existed. By drilling more than3 kilometers deep into the ice sheets over Greenland and Antarctica, scientists can see how temperature and atmospheric carbon-dioxide levels have changed since then.

From that record, we know the atmosphere and the air that we breathe has never had as much carbon dioxide in it as it does today.

For the first time in recorded history, the average monthly level of CO2 in the atmosphere exceeded 410 parts per million in April,according to observations at the Mauna Loa Observatory in Hawaii.

Breathing the air of a new world

For the 800,000 years for which we have records, average global CO2 levels fluctuated between about 170 ppm and 280 ppm. Once humans started to burn fossil fuels in the industrial era, things changed rapidly.

Only in the industrial era has the number risen above 300 ppm. The concentration first crept above400 ppm in 2013, and it continues to climb.

There's a debate among scientists about the last time CO2 levels were this high. It might have been during the Pliocene era, 2 million to 4.6 million years ago, whensea levels were 60 to 80 feet higherthan today. Or it may have beenin the Miocene, 10 million to 14 million years ago, when seas were more than 100 feet higher than now.

In our 800,000-year record, ittook about 1,000 yearsfor CO2 levels to increase by 35 ppm. We're currently averaging an increase of more than 2 ppm a year, meaning we could hit an average of 500 ppm within the next 45 years.

neo nazis vandalize man's truck over hurt feelings

No.261910 ViewReplyOriginalReportDownload thread
A Michigan resident awoke Tuesday morning to slashed tires, swastikas and a racist message spray-painted on the pickup truck parked outside his family’s home in Vienna Township. Hubert Roberts Jr., 62, who is black, said his vehicle was vandalized overnight in what he believes is a hate crime, MLive reported.

A vandal — or vandals — used white spray paint to scrawl a message that included a blatant spelling error. The words “wite pride” — blatantly spelled wrong — were written on the side of the vehicle. Roberts thinks he might have been targeted because markings on his vehicle refer to the Black Lives Matter movement. The words “Black Panthers” also appear on the truck.

Roberts told said this is the first time he’s been the victim of a racially-motivated attack and told MLive that he is “disappointed with us as a community.” A neighbor noticed the vandalism and reported it to Roberts at around 7 a.m. Tuesday, according to the report. Genesee County Sheriff Robert Pickell said the incident is “of concern” and assigned a detective to investgiate it.

Parents try to disclaim liability for little shitlord's actions after breaking sculpture

No.260809 ViewReplyOriginalReportDownload thread

>Parents of a 5-year-old Kansas boy were hit with a $132,000 bill after their son knocked over an art sculpture on display at a local community center.

>Surveillance video captured the little boy reaching for the sculpture, called “Aphrodite di Kansas City” on display in the lobby of the Tomahawk Ridge Community Center in Overland Park, Kansas, when it toppled over.

>Then a few days later, the family received a $132,000 claim from the city of Overland Park’s insurance company, saying that the piece had been damaged beyond repair.

>“You’re responsible for the supervision of a minor child… your failure to monitor could be considered negligent,” the insurance letter read in part.

>“I was surprised, absolutely, more so offended to be called negligent,” said the boy’s mother Sarah Goodman. “They were treating this like a crime scene.”

>The sculpture’s artist, Bill Lyons, told ABC News it took him about two years to create the piece and it was listed for sale at $132,000. He examined the piece himself, he said, and concluded it could not be repaired.

>“It’s beyond my capabilities and desires to rebuild it,” he said.
