Are you aware of the thermal anomalies with the pyramids in Egypt? Apparently scientists have found that different parts of the pyramids heat up differently suggesting that different areas may be made from different materials. Click here

Speaking of different materials, have you heard of making a leather jacket in a lab? It's all part of a relatively new area of science and technology meets fashion called biofabrication. Well, technically the idea has been around a while but, it's only recently that science and technology has advanced enough to allow it to become a reality. Apparently one company that's in to biofabrication is close to market with their engineered yeast that replicates spider silk. Click here

Did you know that those decorative gourds, often used during the holidays, aren’t just supposed to look pretty? They're actually quite edible and, if done right, even tasty. Click here

There's more, but I will leave the rest for you to discover and enjoy.
Have a wonderful week.

Earth Changes Accelerate As 12 Major Earthquakes Hit Chile Within 24 Hours
Something strange is happening to our planet.  Over the past 30 days, there seems to have been much more “shaking” than normal, and this is particularly true along the Ring of Fire.  This afternoon I visited the official website of the U.S. Geological Survey, and I discovered that Chile had been hit with 12 major earthquakes within the last 24 hours alone.  The smallest was of magnitude 4.4, and the two largest both measured magnitude 6.9. We have also seen dozens of volcanoes erupt recently, including the incredibly dangerous Mt. Popocatepetl in Mexico.  Fortunately we have not seen a major disaster that kills thousands of people yet, but many believe that all of this shaking is leading up to one.  In addition, the weather all over the world continues to get freakier and freakier.  Just today, Yemen was hit by a second major tropical cyclone in less than a week.  Any one of these strange disasters in isolation may not seem like that big of a deal, but when you start putting all of the pieces together it starts to become clear that something really significant is taking place. So why are all of these things happening?  Well, some experts point to the sun.  In recent years there has been a tremendous amount of hype about “global warming”, but the truth is that evidence is starting to emerge that indicates that our sun might be heading into a period of “hibernation”…

7.0 magnitude earthquake hits off southern coast of Japan – USGS
A 7.0 magnitude earthquake has struck off the Japanese coast, some 159 km (99 miles) south west of the city Makurazaki in the Kagoshima Prefecture. Tsunami warnings have been issued by the Japanese meteorological agency. The quake’s epicenter was pinpointed at a depth of 10 kilometers, after it struck at 5:51 am (2051 GMT Friday). The Japan Meteorological Agency (JMA) has issued a yellow-level tsunami warning for three regions. “Get out of the water and leave the coast immediately. As the strong current will continue, do not get in the sea or approach coasts until the advisory is cleared,” the agency said.  The JMA does not expect the tsunami to cause any damage if it reaches the coastal regions. The USGS has since downgraded the earthquake’s strength to 6.5 on the Richter magnitude scale, while the Japanese agency continues to list it as a 7.0. A magnitude 7.0 earthquake is classified as a major tremor that can cause serious damage. Japan, no stranger to severe earthquakes, was hit by a massive undersea quake in March 2011. It triggered a tsunami that devastated Japan's northeast coast.

Collapsing Greenland glacier could raise sea levels by half a metre, say scientists
A major glacier in Greenland that holds enough water to raise global sea levels by half a metre has begun to crumble into the North Atlantic Ocean, scientists say. The huge Zachariae Isstrom glacier in northeast Greenland started to melt rapidly in 2012 and is now breaking up into large icebergs where the glacier meets the sea, monitoring has revealed. The calving of the glacier into chunks of floating ice will set in train a rise in sea levels that will continue for decades to come, the US team warns. “Even if we have some really cool years ahead, we think the glacier is now unstable,” said Jeremie Mouginot at the University of California, Irvine. “Now this has started, it will continue until it retreats to a ridge about 30km back which could stabilise it and perhaps slow that retreat down.” Mouginot and his colleagues drew on 40 years of satellite data and aerial surveys to show that the enormous Zachariae Isstrom glacier began to recede three times faster from 2012, with its retreat speeding up by 125 metres per year every year until the most recent measurements in 2015.

Vegetable oils contain 'toxic' chemical linked to cancer and brain degeneration, say scientists
Cooking with vegetable oil releases toxic chemicals linked to cancer and even the degeneration of the brain, according to experts. Lard, butter, coconut and olive oil are all better dietary choices, leading scientists have said - in advice which directly contradicts the NHS. When heated, corn, sunflower, palm and soya bean oils - often called "vegetable" oils -  release chemicals called aldehydes which have been linked to various cancers and neurogenerative diseases such as Alzheimer's. Martin Grootveld, a professor of bioanalytical chemistry and chemical pathology at DeMontfort University,said that a meal fried in vegetable oil such as fish and chips contains 100 to 200 times more aldehydes than the daily limit set by the World Health Organisation (WHO), according to the Daily Telegraph. Using butter, olive and lard in the frying pan, however, was found to produce much lower levels of aldehydes - with coconut oil coming out as healthiest.

Leather jackets made in labs? This fashion designer wants to make it happen
The world of biofabrication, where the organisms, cells, and molecules of life form the basis of our built world, is a weird and wonderful place. There’s furniture made of fungi, inks manufactured by microbes, lab-grown bones, and 3D-printed tissue. There are home bioreactors full of protein-rich algae and clothes cultured from animal cells. It’s the kind of biological utopia once relegated to science fiction, but now, thanks to advances in biotechnology and genomics, it’s becoming a reality. To fashion designer Suzanne Lee, it’s a revolution that’s a long time coming. “Once you start to understand what (biofabrication) could mean for reducing natural resource use,” Lee says, “you just think, ‘Wow. Why would we not be using biology?’” Lee is the chief creative officer at Modern Meadow, a Brooklyn-based startup that’s growing slaughter-free leather from living cow cells. She’s also the director of a biofabrication consultancy called Biocouture and the founder of Biofabricate, an annual gathering for scientists, technologists, artists, designers, and investors who want to bring biological materials into our everyday lives. “It’s just the dawning of a whole new bioeconomy,” Lee says.

How to Make a Natural Screen Cleaner for Your Electronic Devices
When you use your electronic devices almost every day, they’re bound to get pretty dirty. From fingerprints and smudges to dust and other mystery particles, it’s a good idea to regularly wipe down the screens on your desktop computer monitor, laptop, tablet, smartphone, iPod or any other gadgets you’ve got. But what to use? Commercially sold screen cleaners can be expensive and despite claiming to be safe to use on all sorts of devices, they’re not exactly natural. For an alternative that’s both budget-friendly and eco-friendly, all you need is some water and some vinegar. Although this should generally be safe to use on a variety of screens, you should always check your device’s user manual for cleaning instructions first to be completely sure of what you should and shouldn’t use.

Decorative gourds aren’t just supposed to look pretty. Here’s how to cook them
Set aside your Starbucks pumpkin spice latte and bakery-bought pumpkin loaf. It’s time to get your squash on, because many of the “decorative gourds” that have lined your mantle since October are actually edible. The holidays are a time to celebrate abundance, but it’s also a time of massive food waste. So why not turn your gourds into a Thanksgiving side or autumnal meal? Gourds have donned our tables for decades, but they were rediscovered by younger generations after the publication of the 2009 McSweeney’s piece “It’s Decorative Gourd Season, Motherfuckers.” Think of their resurgence like that of ugly Christmas sweaters, but delicious. Pumpkins, gourds, and squash all come from the Cucurbitacae gourd family and are related to watermelon, zucchini, and cucumbers. Some of the decorative gourds in your centerpiece are bitter, have thick skin, and have been sprayed with shiny shellac. Don’t eat those. Stick to cooking things like acorn squash and mini pumpkins, which shouldn’t be thrown in the trash once Black Friday rolls around. I sacrificed my own decorative gourds to demonstrate some unique recipes beyond roasting the seeds from your jack o’ lantern.

Egypt pyramids scan finds mystery heat spots
An international team of architects and scientists have observed "thermal anomalies" in the pyramids of Giza, Egyptian antiquities officials say. Thermal cameras detected higher temperatures in three adjacent stones at the bottom of the Great Pyramid. Officials said possible causes included the existence of empty areas inside the pyramid, internal air currents, or the use of different building materials. It comes as experts search for hidden chambers within the pyramids. The tombs of the pharaohs Khufu (Kheops), Khafre (Khephren) and Menkaure (Mycerinus) were built in the Fourth Dynasty, about 2613-2494BC.

'Impressive' anomaly
A team of architects and scientists from Egypt, France, Canada and Japan used infrared thermography to survey the pyramids during sunrise, as the sun heats the limestone structures from the outside, as well as at sunset when they cool down. In a statement, the Egyptian antiquities ministry said the experts had "concluded the existence of several thermal anomalies that were observed on all monuments during the heating-up or the cooling-down phases".
