Global extent of rivers and streams
The turbulent surfaces of rivers and streams are natural hotspots of biogeochemical exchange with the atmosphere. At the global scale, the total river-atmosphere flux of trace gasses such as carbon dioxide depends on the proportion of Earth’s surface that is covered by the fluvial network, yet the total surface area of rivers and streams is poorly constrained. We used a global database of planform river hydromorphology and a statistical approach to show that global river and stream surface area at mean annual discharge is 773,000 ± 79,000 square kilometers (0.58 ± 0.06%) of Earth’s nonglaciated la...

This article represents his opinions. The Environmental Protection Agency would like you to think it is taking an “unprecedented” stand against the hazards of asbestos, the mineral that kills nearly 40,000 Americans each year from mesothelioma, lung cancer and other asbestos-related diseases. It is not. In fact, on June 1, the EPA announced a significant new use rule (SNUR) that will allow companies to manufacture, import and process new asbestos-containing products after it evaluates their potential health dangers. The standards to evaluate those health risks, which are included in a nearly 1,500-page docume...

It is true that most of the time, patients report lessening of pain after the procedures. But could this be just a placebo effect?
