Editors Corner

Greetings,
Did you know that there is a plant that can safely digest TNT? Apparently "TNT's danger lingers long after the boom. Labeled a class C carcinogen by the EPA, TNT pollution from partially-detonated explosives wreaks environmental havoc and can cause ailments like cataracts, hepatitis, and bone marrow cancer in animals", so a plant like this is wonderful as it can easily take care of the problem.

Speaking of taking care of problems, have you heard that scientists are genetically engineering moths to self destruct? It will apparently take care of a pest, that would otherwise wreak havoc with nearly all cruciferous vegetable crops, without spraying. Click here

On a different subject, are you aware that your emotional state may affect the way you see the world? Maybe you do already know this but what about it affecting something as basic as the way, or how much, you see colors? Apparently, in a recent study, "participants who were made to feel sad were less accurate in identifying colors on the blue-yellow axis than those who were caused to be amused or emotionally neutral".

That's about it from me for this week.
Enjoy the rest of the newsletter, and have a wonderful week.

UK tech firm integrates hydrogen fuel cell inside iPhone for week-long charge
A UK tech company has developed a hydrogen fuel cell so compact they have managed to fit it inside just a slightly modified regular iPhone 6. The technological breakthrough can allow a smartphone to run for a week on a single “charge.” “To our knowledge this has never been done before,” Henri Winand, chief executive of Loughborough-based Intelligent Energy, told the Telegraph. “We have now managed to make a fuel cell so thin we can fit it to the existing chassis without alterations and retaining the rechargeable battery. This is a major step because if you are moving to a new technology you have to give people a path they are comfortable with.” The company’s prototype iPhone 6 contains both a regular lithium-ion battery and a hydrogen cell module that produces electrical current by mixing hydrogen and oxygen. The only byproduct is a tiny amount of water and heat, so the regular model had to be modified to add vents that will let them escape. Intelligent Energy already offers a $200 hydrogen battery device, called Upp. However like any other similarly bulky gadgets on the market, the whole system is external and just charges the device’s internal battery.

Something Worth Knowing

50 shades of blue: Scientists say sadness affects color perception
'Feeling blue' or 'seeing things through rose-tinted glasses' may not just be melodramatic statements. New research suggests that emotions can actually influence the way we see color. Feeling sadness may affect the way we perceive color the results of two recent studies have proved. In one study, the researchers had 127 undergraduate participants watch an emotional film clip and then complete a visual judgment task. The participants were asked to watch an animated film clip designed to induce sadness, or a standup comedy clip meant to elicit fun and amusement. After watching the video clip, the participants were shown 48 consecutive, desaturated color patches and were asked to indicate whether each patch was red, yellow, green or blue. It turned out that participants who were made to feel sad were less accurate in identifying colors on the blue-yellow axis than those who were caused to be amused or emotionally neutral. "Our results show that mood and emotion can affect how we see the world around us," the study’s lead author Christopher Thorstenson said in a statement for the Association for Psychological Science.

When they’re not busy weaving leaves, these ants make great insecticides
Humans have spent millions of dollars to develop the next best pesticide system, building smart technology like sensors, drones, and autonomous robots to more accurately spray pesticides on crops. But, as it turns out, we may have missed something important in our quest to find the latest, greatest, most expensive technology to solve our problems. What’s this magical alternative to chemical pesticides? Ants. According to new review of research by Joachim Offenberg a biologist at Aarhus University, ants can control pests as efficiently, and much more cheaply, than pesticides. The review of more than 70 studies was published in British Ecological Society’s Journal of Applied Ecology. It showed that for many crops — from cocoa to palm oil to citrus to cedar — ants could be used in a wide variety of climates and locations in place of pesticides. The review may be new, but the technique isn’t. According to Science, the Chinese started using the method 1,700 years ago, when farmers released ants in citrus groves. Farmers in Africa, Latin America, and Australia regularly use ants to control pests. But farmers in more industrialized countries just never caught on, primarily because of the invention of synthetic insecticides.

Scientists Discover Mutant Plant That Safely Digests TNT
From firing ranges to war zones, humans have pummeled the Earth with an enormous amount of explosive ordinance. In almost every bomb and artillery shell is the ubiquitous and volatile chemical TNT (trinitrotoluene). TNT's danger lingers long after the boom. Labeled a class C carcinogen by the EPA, TNT pollution from partially-detonated explosives wreaks environmental havoc and can cause ailments like cataracts, hepatitis, and bone marrow cancer in animals. The U.S. Department of Defense estimates that around 10 million hectares worldwide have been contaminated. But there's good news. Today a team of biologists led by Emily Johnston and Elizabeth Rylott at the University of York in the U.K. have discovered a genetic mutation in plants that bolsters their immunity to TNT, allowing them to soak up, digest, and safely store the harmful pollutant. First discovered in a species of scientific research plant called Arabidopsis, the mutation could be bred into an almost limitless number of plants, such as the wild grasses already growing on firing ranges.

Forget insecticides. Scientists are making pests that destroy themselves
Let’s get this right out in the open: Scientists are genetically engineering moths to self destruct. I know, I know — sounds pretty mad scientist-y. But consider this: Those moths are wreaking havoc on sauerkraut-destined cabbage, kale, and other super-hip cruciferous super foods. So either the moths go, or you have to start microwaving leftover rice and hot sauce for lunch like everyone else. Now that I’ve got your attention, pop open a jar of that artisanal sauerkraut and let’s begin. Diamondback moths are kind of the Incredible Hulks of the pest world. Try to kill them with a single pesticide, and they’ll just develop resistance and grow stronger. Farmers try to work around this by deploying multiple pesticides in rotation, but even then, the moths remain a stubborn foe. Here’s more from the New York Times:

An invasive species, the diamondback moth was once a minor nuisance. It became an agricultural headache in the late 1940s as chemical pesticide use exploded. The moth, the first crop pest to evolve resistance to DDT, multiplied as feebler competitors died off.

Was An Extraterrestrial Mummified With King Tut?
Our readers know by now that the quest for the true and uncensored history of the human race often takes us to the most remarkable places where we encounter unexplained artifacts, mummies and other prehistoric traces that challenge orthodox science. While doing research on extraterrestrial activities in ancient Egypt, we stumbled upon a story that is as remarkable as intriguing. This brings us yet another odd discovery that was related some years ago and also involves a being of extraterrestrial origin that could have lived during the reign of King Tutankhamun. In a shock statement, head of the Cairo University Archeology Department, Dr Ala Shaheen told an audience some years ago that there might be truth to the theory that aliens helped the ancient Egyptians build the oldest of pyramids, namely the Pyramids of Giza. On being further questioned by Mr Marek Novak, a delegate from Poland as to whether the pyramid might still contain alien technology or even a UFO with its structure, Dr Shaheen, was vague and replied “I can not confirm or deny this, but there is something inside the pyramid that is “not of this world”.

Advanced Ancient Technology: Could Ancient Peruvians Soften Stone?
Archaeologists and other scientists have been scratching their heads trying to figure out how remarkable ancient Peruvian structures like Sacsayhuamán were constructed. This marvelous structure consists of gigantic stones so heavy that our modern machinery can hardly move and put in place. Does the key to the puzzle lie in a certain very specific plant that gave the ancient Peruvians possibility to soften stone or is the answer to the mystery access to advanced ancient technology that could melt stone? According to researchers Jan Peter de Jong , Christopher Jordan Jesus Gamarra, the granite walls in Cuzco show evidence of being heated to a very high degree and vitrified- the outside surface becoming glassy and very smooth. The vitrified stones of Peru were first brought to popular attention by Erich von Däniken in the 1970s. He noted the vitrification at Sacsayhuamán in his book Chariots of the Gods. Based on this observation, Jong, Jordan and Gamarra draw the conclusion that “some sort of high tech device was used to melt stone blocks which were then placed and allowed to cool next to hard, jigsaw-polygonal blocks that were already in place.

Dear Architects
Stop trying to make shipping container buildings happen

There are about 120 million shipping containers around the world at any given moment, doing what they were designed to do, which is to encase the oddly sized things that people enjoy (crop tops, frozen fish fillets) and then be completely interchangeable with each of their 120 million relatives — and thus able to be stacked on a boat, train, or flatbed truck without unpleasant surprises. Depending on who you talk to, shipping containers were also designed to replace unionized longshoremen with non-unionized cranes. Whatever the original impetus, the planet has acquired a lot of them since the first few were built in the 1950s, with one unintended effect: They’re irresistible to architectural design competitions. It’s not hard to see the appeal. Shipping containers look exactly like building blocks, which is the primary medium (other than dirt) that most architects started working with. You can buy used ones for about $1,600 a pop, which seems like a steal for housing. Doing that also feels very environmentally conscious, because you’re taking something that already exists and reusing it for a different purpose.
