Salt pond in Antarctica, among the saltiest waters on Earth, is fed from beneath
Salt pond in Antarctica, among the saltiest waters on Earth, is fed from beneath
At the base of the Transantarctic Mountains lies a geological oddity. Don Juan Pond is one of the saltiest bodies of water on the planet, filled with a dense, syrupy brine rich in calcium chloride that can remain liquid to minus 50 degrees Celsius, far below the freezing point of water. But the source of water and salt to this unusual pond remains a mystery - even as hints emerge that water in a similar form could exist on Mars.

Researchers Link Binge Eating and Weight-loss Challenges
Wednesday, November 15, 2017 Someone who binge eats consumes an objectively large amount of food while feeling a loss of control over eating. When episodes occur weekly for several months, the action moves into the realm of binge-eating disorder. So how does this type of eating affect people with Type 2 diabetes and obesity who are actively working to lose weight?

Are petite poplars the future of biofuels’ UW studies say yes
In the quest to produce affordable biofuels, poplar trees are one of the Pacific Northwest's best bets - the trees are abundant, fast-growing, adaptable to many terrains and their wood can be transformed into substances used in biofuel and high-value chemicals that we rely on in our daily lives. But even as researchers test poplars' potential to morph into everything from ethanol to chemicals in cosmetics and detergents, a commercial-scale processing plant for poplars has yet to be achieved.

Diagnosing Alzheimer’s with diamonds and PET scans
Deep within our brains is a dense forest of 100 billion nerve cells. Each of those cells has about 15,000 dendrites that branch out to connect with dendrites from other nerve cells, generating more than 100 trillion points of connection. Electrical signals race from cell to cell at a rate of 200 times a second, triggering thoughts, memories, actions and feelings.

So, you thought the fictional people-eating great white shark in the film "Jaws" had a powerful bite. But don't overlook the mighty mouth of the parrotfish - its hardy teeth allow it to chomp on coral all day long, ultimately chewing and grinding it up through digestion into fine sand. That's right: Its "beak" creates beaches.
