From concrete to coral: breeze blocks make a splash regenerating reefs
There hasn ’t been much good news about coral recently, but in Grenada, one project is using towers of concrete to encourage marine life and create new reefsThe outboard motor roared into life and the rope snapped tight, flicking sand across the beach. For a fraction of a second, the inertia of half a ton of concrete held sway before the entire construction slid down the runners and into the surf. I fully expected it to sink, leaving a tattered rope to skip across the wave tops, but the team from Grenada ’s Grand Anse Reef Regeneration Project (GARRP) had done this before and all was well.As the boat picked up ...

Looking To Paris For Our Very Survival
We are now mere days away from what could easily be described as the most important gathering for the year -- the 21st Conference of Parties (COP21) of the 196 Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). At the 30th Nov. to 11th Dec. meeting in Paris, it is imperative that parties sign a legally-binding accord to keep human-induced global temperature rise within levels that science says will avert catastrophic climate change. This is important for many reasons. My country, Antigua & Barbuda, and its Caribbean neighbours, already among the most vulnerable of Small States, face an eve...

Mission Day 14: Mad Respect, AKA Don't Kill Bob
This post should really be titled, "MAD, MAD, MAD" respect. Respect for what, you may ask? For lifelong astronauts? For scientists and support staff who spent winter in Antarctica? For service people aboard submarines and ships who do this isolation thing all the time? Absolutely, but I've respected the heck out of those folks for years. This is brand new respect we're talking about here. Over the last two weeks -- two weeks already! -- I've come upon a profound pile of respect, basically a mountain of respect, for people who feed families of six or more in underdeveloped countries. It's an all-day long, and half...

Woman Loses Vision After Mosquito Bite Transmits Chikungunya Fever
By: Laura Geggel Published: 08/10/2015 10:38 AM EDT on LiveScience A woman who caught chikungunya fever while vacationing in the Caribbean wound up losing some of the vision in her right eye permanently, according to a new report of her case. The findings suggest that vision problems may be an underreported effect of the mosquito-transmitted virus, which has spread in recent years from Africa and Asia to the Caribbean, Latin America and parts of the United States, the report's authors said. "Sight-threatening visual loss can be a late complication of infection with chikungunya," said Dr. Abhijit Mohite, who treat...
