'Southern' English language course for foreign teachers – archive, 1922
2 August 1922: Foreign pupils will learn to say a good, straightforward “nice” and an honest “time,” and will not attempt the popular “naice” and “taime”If Chaucer could come back to earth and attend the vacation course in English phonetics for foreign teachers of English which commenced at University College to-day he would probably understand less of the explanations than say, the visitors from Egypt and Czecho-Slovakia, who are attending in force.

Lost ecosystem found buried in mud of southern California coastal waters
(University of Chicago) Paleontologists investigating the sea bed off California have discovered a lost ecosystem that for thousands of years had nurtured communities of scallops and shelled marine organisms called brachiopods. They had died off by the early 20th century, replaced by the mud-dwellling burrowing clams that inhabit this seabed today. Paleontologists Adam Toma š ov ý ch of the Slovak Academy of Sciences and Susan Kidwell of the University of Chicago examine the lost ecosystem in a new study. (Source: EurekAlert! - Biology)

500 Planets on One Exquisite Chart
At the same time our solar system has been busy culling its planet herd (goodbye, Pluto) the rest of the solar system has been busy adding them—or at least we’ve been busy discovering them. Though it had always been anthropocentric in the extreme to assume that in a galaxy filled with 300 billion stars and a universe with perhaps 100 billion galaxies, ours was the only solar system extant. It wasn’t until 1995, however, that astronomers discovered the first so-called exoplanet—Pegasi 51b, more than 50 light years from Earth. Since then, nearly 2,000 confirmed exoplanets have been discovered—mo...

Circulating vaccine-derived poliovirus – Ukraine
In Ukraine, 2 cases of circulating vaccine-derived poliovirus type 1 (cVDPV1) have been confirmed, with dates of onset of paralysis on 30 June and 7 July 2015. Both are from the Zakarpatskaya oblast, in south-western Ukraine, bordering Romania, Hungary, Slovakia and Poland. One child was 4 years old and the other 10 months old at the time of onset of paralysis. Ukraine had been at particular risk of emergence of a cVDPV, due to inadequate vaccination coverage. In 2014, only 50% of children were fully immunized against polio and other vaccine-preventable diseases. (Source: WHO Disease Outbreaks)

Moral judgments soften with time and distance, UCLA-led study shows
New research suggests that the human mind is disturbingly flexible about moral judgments. An international team led by UCLA anthropology professor Daniel Fessler studied members of seven disparate societies, from rural New Guinea to urban California. They found that, regardless of where they were from, people judged acts like lying, theft and assault to be wrong — but less wrong if those acts happened far away or long ago, or if an authority figure suggested the acts were acceptable. “This troubling finding helps explain why a blind eye is often turned to atrocities that occur abroad or are sanctioned by influe...

EU Just Shy Of Meeting 2020 Emissions Goal After New Greenhouse Gas Cuts Announced
COPENHAGEN, Denmark (AP) — The European Union's environment agency says the bloc's greenhouse gas emissions dropped by nearly 2 percent last year, putting the EU very close to reaching its emissions target for 2020. That goal is to reduce emissions of CO2 and other greenhouse gases by 20 percent compared to 1990 levels. The European Environment Agency said Tuesday that emissions already have fallen 19 percent, meaning the 28-nation bloc is likely to exceed its target. The EEA projected that 2020 emissions will be 21 percent or 24 percent lower than they were in 1990, depending on whether planned ...
