JUNO BEACH, Fla. — Plastic may be impacting sea turtles more than you might think.According to a new international study, plastic was found in the gut of every single sea turtle researchers examined, casting light on just how bad plastic pollution is in our oceans.The problem lies with microplastics, which from plastic that ends up in the ocean through pollution. It breaks down into tiny pieces due to the sun and other environmental factors and then gets eaten by sea turtles and other marine life that mistakes it for food.The new research was published in the journal Global Change Biology. It found plastic in more than 100 sea turtles across the world in the Atlantic Ocean, Pacific Ocean and Mediterranean Sea.Click here to read the studySome of the objects researchers found in the turtles' guts included tire pieces, cigarettes and fishing line."Some of these chemicals are known to be endocrine disruptors, which means they mess up the hormones of the turtles," … [Read more...] about Researchers found microplastics in the gut of every sea turtle in a new study
Editorial By Daniel Eran Dilger Wednesday, December 05, 2018, 05:57 am PT (08:57 am ET) Bloomberg is back with a story that presents Apple's trade-in program as being an example of desperate price slashing in response to supposedly flagging sales of what Apple has actually stated is its most popular phone —the iPhone XR.Bloomberg portrayed Apple's Give Back as a desperate handout. It isn't. Apple resells models as refurbished. Writing for Bloomberg, Mark Gurman cited an unnamed "person familiar with the situation" as provocatively portraying the work of Apple's marketing team to sell more iPhones as being a "fire drill" and "a possible admission" that new iPhones "may have been selling below some expectations." As Roger Fingas reported on Tuesday, AppleInsider spoke with sources actually inside Apple, who stated that the moves were in no way a "fire drill" as described by Bloomberg but rather a "normal seasonal response to expected consumer trends," although they said they … [Read more...] about Bloomberg continues iPhone panic mongering by conflating Apple’s Give Back trade-in program with price slashing

The protein klotho has been shown to promote longevity and counteract aging-related impairments. Having more klotho seems to allow for longer and healthier lives, whereas a depletion of this molecule accelerates aging and may contribute to age-related diseases. Curiously, within the brain, one structure contains vastly higher levels of klotho than all the others. This structure is the choroid plexus, which comprises a complex assembly of cells that produce cerebrospinal fluid and form an important barrier between the central nervous system and the blood. A group of scientists at the Gladstone Institutes, led by Lennart Mucke, MD, decided to investigate why the choroid plexus contains so much more klotho than other brain regions. In a new study published in the scientific journal PNAS, they showed that klotho functions as a gatekeeper that shields the brain from the peripheral immune system. "We discovered, in mouse models, that klotho levels in the choroid plexus naturally decrease … [Read more...] about Scientists Uncover New Gatekeeper Function of Anti-Aging Molecule
