Big Methane Burp: Cow Farts A Greater Problem Than EPA Previously Thought

WASHINGTON –  The United States is spewing 50 percent more methane — a potent heat-trapping gas — than the federal government estimates, a new comprehensive scientific study says. Much of it is coming from just three states: Texas, Oklahoma and Kansas.

That means methane may be a bigger global warming issue than thought, scientists say. Methane is 21 times more potent at trapping heat than carbon dioxide, the most abundant global warming gas, although it doesn’t stay in the air as long.

Much of that extra methane, also called natural gas, seems to be coming from livestock, including manure, belches, and flatulence, as well as leaks from refining and drilling for oil and gas, the study says. It was published Monday in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Science.

The study estimates that in 2008, the U.S. poured 49 million tons of methane into the air. That means U.S. methane emissions trapped ab…

Woolly Mammoth Blood found on body found in Russia

Woolly Mammoth Containing Liquid Blood Discovered In Russia
The discovery of a woolly mammoth’s body in Siberia this week has amazed Russian scientists because of how well preserved the animal’s blood and muscle tissue is.

The mammoth, which is estimated to have lived 10,000 to 15,000 years ago, was discovered on the Lyakhovsky Islands in northeastern Russia by an expedition team from North-Eastern Federal University.

The scientists believe the blood and tissue of the animal was preserved due to the permafrost, permanently frozen soil.

Despite freezing temperatures of 14 degrees Fahrenheit, the mammoth’s blood was liquid, still leaking under the animal.


“We have put the blood sample into the freezer of the Mammoth Museum. It still did not freeze at -17 degrees Celsius [1.4 degrees Fahrenheit]. We need to study it thoroughly to draw any conclusions,” Semyon Grigoriev, expedition participant and director of the Mammoth Museum of North-Eastern Federal University, told Russian media.

Coin vs. The Wocket A Battle For Your Bulging Wallet
You may have heard something lately about something called Coin, thanks to an aggressive social media and deep intro discount pricing campaign currently underway. Perhaps you have heard of The Wocket, which claims to be a “biometrically secure device”? Both products are pure genius and aim to replace your bulging wallet with their single slick all-in-one card.

Since they are so similar, here’s a closer look and comparison of:
Coin vs. The Wocket, A Battle For Your Bulging Wallet.
Coin and The Wocket address the common problem of the overstuffed wallet. Replacing all the credit cards, debit cards, membership and rewards cards we have into one card!
The issue of back pain caused by sitting on a stuffed wallet has been made fun of on Seinfeld (“Curse of the Large Exploding Wallet” episode) but is very real, according to a New York Times health report which confirmed sitting on an overstuffed wallet, golf ball, etc. leads …

Virginia Man Can't afford $200,000 Toll Bill

How One Driver Racked Up A $200,000 Toll Bill Traveling From Virginia To D.C.
$200000 Toll Bill, Jason Bourcier
Just because there’s no man in the booth, doesn’t mean that you don’t have to pay the toll.
One Virginia driver learned that the hard way when he was recently slapped with a $200,000 toll bill for failing to pay his dues while driving on the Dulles Toll Road every night for three-and-a-half years.

“They provided me with a stack of summonses that was 12 inches high,” Jason Bourcier told NBC Washington.

According to FOX 5 D.C., Bourcier owed only $440 in missed tolls. (Since January 2013, it costs $1.75 per car to pass through the toll road’s main plaza.) However, that sum swelled to a whopping $202,000 because of fees and fines. The Virginia Department of Transportation charges a $25 administrative fee per violation and up to a $500 fine per infraction, depending on the number of offenses.

Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority spokesman Christopher Paolino said Bourcier …

Invasion uncovered from Deep Space Invaders found in the Earth’s South Pole

Dozens Traveled Here At The Speed Of Light To Check Out Our Snow Slopes By Shaun Nichols, 21st November 2013
Scientists at the South Pole have detected a collection of neutrinos from outer space that could help explain the origins of the universe.

A team from the IceCube telescope laboratory in Antarctica will reveal their findings in tomorrow’s Science journal.

The experts believe that their 28 intergalactic subatomic particles, which were embedded within a cubic kilometre of polar ice, originated from outside the Solar System, and likely from outside our galaxy, the Milky Way.

Having collected the particles, the boffins believe that they can gain new insight into the workings of black holes, pulsars and other wonders of space that emit the subatomic particles.

The equipment is able to differentiate between neutrinos from outside the Solar System with those that may have originated from the Sun or the Earth’s own atmosphere, which could reveal more about astrophysical pheno…
