Researchers sample a DC swamp to study a spineless creature
CHAMPAIGN, Ill. — Its name is Stygobromus hayi , the Hay's Spring amphipod. It is spineless. It lacks vision. It is an opportunistic feeder, consuming whatever resources are available – perhaps including the remains of its own kind. That is where its similarities to some of Washington, D.C.'s more notorious megafauna end.

Wind turbines can pick up the slack on coldest days
Winter days are usually less windy, but a new analysis shows turbines work harder on the coldest days, when power demand is highest. During winter in Great Britain, warmer periods are often windier, while colder periods are often calmer, due to the prevailing weather patterns. Colder periods are also when electricity demand increases.
