Did you know that scientists have created a map of over 8,000 galaxies? As you may know, our solar system is on the outskirts of the milky way. It might also interest you to know that the milky way is on the outskirts of a supercluster of galaxies that scientists have named "Laniakea". Click here

Something a little closer to home, did you know that you can grow a small forest in under 2 years? A forest planted by humans, then left to nature’s own devices, typically takes at least 100 years to mature. Shubhendu Sharma has perfected the art of creating fast-growing forests. Click here

When humans exert the will upon nature, the products are not always good. Did you know that exposure to a common fungicide can alter gene expression? In this case it doesn't damage the genes or alter the sequence, it just alters the way they are expressed. Click here

That's about it from me for this week. If you haven't already seen the recent images under LiveScience's "Image of the Day" yet, I urge you to take a look. Click here
Have a wonderful week.

Think the Southwest’s drought is bad now? It could last a generation or more
Late-summer 2014 has brought uncomfortable news for residents of the U.S. Southwest — and I’m not talking about 109-degree heat in population centers like Phoenix. A new study by Cornell University, the University of Arizona, and the U.S. Geological Survey researchers looked at the deep historical record (tree rings, etc.) and the latest climate change models to estimate the likelihood of major droughts in the Southwest over the next century. The results are as soothing as a thick wool sweater on a midsummer desert hike. The researchers concluded that odds of a decadelong drought are “at least 80 percent.” The chances of a “megadrought,” one lasting 35 or more years, stands at somewhere between 20 percent and 50 percent, depending on how severe climate change turns out to be. And the prospects for an “unprecedented 50-year megadrought” — one “worse than anything seen during the last 2000 years”­ — checks in at a nontrivial 5 to 10 percent.

It’s a historic year for temperature extremes
This year is shaping up to be one of the weirder ones in America’s weather history. That’s because we now seem to be living in two geographically separate nations: one scalded by unbearable heat, the other bitten by waves of unusual cold. In a typical year, the U.S. has either mostly warm or mostly cool temperature extremes (meaning values at the top or bottom of a historical range of temperatures). For instance, years in the late ’70s were marked by extreme cold throughout the country, while the 2000s featured increasingly frequent baths of abnormally hot weather, as pictured in this NOAA graph of January-to-July daytime highs: But as seen at the graph’s far right, 2014 is ushering in a prominent and record-setting split between competing regions of hot and cool temperatures — the former in the drought-plagued West and Alaska, the latter in the Midwest and Missouri Valley.

Exposure to common fungicide causes neurological problems across four generations
To better understand mental disorders and neurological problems, scientists are beginning to take a closer look at the study of epigenetics and the endocrine-disrupting chemicals affecting DNA. This kind of study goes beyond just the study of genetics, which looks solely at changes in DNA sequence between generations. Epigenetics investigates the changes in gene expression caused by chemical reactions where certain base pairs in DNA or RNA are "turned off" or "turned on" again. For example, epigenetics looks into the process by which a cell uses genetic code to assemble beneficial proteins. In this field of study, there is a keen eye placed on the environmental reasons why gene expressions change, why DNA can be chemically silenced. Endocrine-disrupting chemicals, so prevalent today in consumer and agricultural products, can affect how cells function in the body. By altering hormone levels, these chemicals may change the way a person reacts to stress or anxiety.

Our Home Supercluster Gets a Map and a Name

Where in the universe is the Milky Way? Galaxies like ours huddle in clusters, and large-scale systems of galaxies, called superclusters, have vague boundaries that are difficult to define (especially from the inside): They’re all drawn to each other and interconnected in a web of filaments. Now for the first time, astronomers have constructed a map of the local universe. They’ve named our home supercluster Laniakea, Hawaiian for “immeasurable heaven.” The work was published in Nature this week.

Shubhendu Sharma: How to grow a tiny forest anywhere

Newly-Discovered Deep Sea ‘Mushroom’ Could Re-Write Tree of Life
Most newly-discovered species are easy to classify. They have features that are very consistent with well-known organisms and they fit neatly into one category or another. Every so often, one comes along that leaves scientists wondering, “What the hell is this thing?” Case in point: Dendrogramma. This new genus represents two species of deep-sea animals that resemble mushrooms but don’t really fit in with any other known animals. As a result, this organism could bring fairly large changes to the phylogenetic tree. The research was conducted by a team of researchers from the University of Copenhagen and the paper was published in PLOS ONE. The 18 specimens were caught during an expedition in the Bass Strait, between Australia and Tasmania back in 1986. Two samples were dredged up from depths of 400 and 1000 meters.The samples had been fixed and preserved, rendering them unable to undergo genetic analysis. However, the preservation process was not done particularly well, causing them to become bleached and shrunken. They turned brittle over time. They have a flat portion of the body that resembles the cap of a mushroom, though it is only approximately 1 centimeter wide.

Mysterious Phony Cell Towers Could Be Intercepting Your Calls
Like many of the ultra-secure phones that have come to market in the wake of Edward Snowden's leaks, the CryptoPhone 500, which is marketed in the U.S. by ESD America and built on top of an unassuming Samsung Galaxy SIII body, features high-powered encryption. Les Goldsmith, the CEO of ESD America, says the phone also runs a customized or "hardened" version of Android that removes 468 vulnerabilities that his engineering team team found in the stock installation of the OS. His mobile security team also found that the version of the Android OS that comes standard on the Samsung Galaxy SIII leaks data to parts unknown 80-90 times every hour.  That doesn't necessarily mean that the phone has been hacked, Goldmsith says, but the user can't know whether the data is beaming out from a particular app, the OS, or an illicit piece of spyware.  His clients want real security and control over their device, and have the money to pay for it. To show what the CryptoPhone can do that less expensive competitors cannot, he points me to a map that he and his customers have created, indicating 17 different phony cell towers known as “interceptors,” detected by the CryptoPhone 500 around the United States during the month of July alone.
