David Choi, provided by Published 4:15 pm, Wednesday, May 2, 2018 REUTERS/China Daily China has reportedly stationed anti-ship cruise missiles and surface-to-air missile systems on the Spratly Islands in the highly disputed South China Sea. The missiles are believed to have a range of 295 nautical miles and 160 nautical miles, respectively. US officials said the latest developments would "only serve to raise tensions and create greater distrust."

Some hardy Earth microbes could likely survive in the Saturn moon Enceladus' buried ocean, gobbling up hydrogen produced by interactions between seawater and rock, a new study suggests. And the microbes tested in the study churn out methane as a metabolic byproduct. That's intriguing, because NASA's Cassini spacecraft detected methane in the plume of particles blasted out into space by Enceladus' powerful south-pole geysers. "We were able to show that, under putative Enceladus conditions, biological methane production occurs in the lab," said study co-author Simon Rittmann, of the Department of Ecogenomics and Systems Biology at the University of Vienna in Austria. [Amazing Photos of Saturn's Icy Moon Enceladus] "Hence, some of the methane detected on Enceladus could in principle be of biological origin," Rittmann told Space.com via email. The researchers — led by Ruth-Sophie Taubner, also of the University of Vienna — performed initial experiments on … [Read more...] about Could Methane on Saturn’s Moon Enceladus Be a Sign of Life?
Leasha Ali had been drunk for the last two days, but she didn’t want to be anymore. The 39-year-old math teacher and mother of two was in a spiral familiar to anyone who’s struggled with addiction. A difficult event — a hospitalization, thanks to lingering symptoms from a birth defect — had stressed her to the breaking point, and then she’d gotten home and found herself alone in her house, depressed and unable to sleep. After a few days without drinking, she gave in, and spent the next 48 hours on a bender. On the second night, January 8th of this year, she got an email from the hospital. Her liver enzymes had been dangerously high — even before the days of abuse. The birth defect that put her in the hospital had already left her with several damaged organs. Afraid of hurting another, she searched the test results in Google. Right there at the top was an ad for rehab. “I thought to myself, ‘Oh my God, even Google knows I need … [Read more...] about How disreputable rehabs game Google to profit off patients
