I’ve been to polluted cities, but you never get that deep orange, ominous color,” says Sanaz Vahidinia, a physicist at NASA Ames Research Center who studies aerosols and light scattering.
Led by Rashad Robinson, Color of Change has engaged in previous struggles to defund the right-wing political group ALEC, make net neutrality a civil rights issue, and end Bill O’Reilly’s show on Fox. But Facebook has been, pardon the expression, Robinson’s white whale—he believes that the biggest network the world has ever seen is a divisive force that spreads hate and racism.
On top of each was a special light containing blue, red, green, and UV LEDs behind a diffuser, allowing the researchers to light up the feeder in a variety of nonspectral colors.
“It may be years before academic research institutions reach a new normal,” the paper concludes.Scientists have redirected their energy toward fighting the novel coronavirus and have shared their data; already over 13,000 papers have been written on the topic, and over 3,000 preprints related to Covid-19 research have been shared on open-access preprint sites like bioRxiv and medRxiv.
Back in January, the UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) predicted the worst was still to come, and that by June, the size of the swarms could grow by a factor of 500.And now, at the worst time, a second wave of locusts 20 times bigger than the first has descended on the region, thanks to heavy rains late last month, according to the FAO.
An election plus a budding epidemic could be an equation for disaster: thousands of people crowded together in polling places, waiting in lines, touching the same door handles and voting machines—or, fearing the prospect of germs, bailing on the whole thing, driving down turnout.
For his first photo book, simply titled The Trap, the French photographer captured the Atlanta locales that birthed the ever-popular rap subgenre that shares the tome's name.Desailly spent two months in 2018 criss-crossing neighborhoods in the Georgia capital to photograph what life in the trap looks like.
Frogs are reflecting and satellites are detecting, but first: a cartoon about self-driving without a license .Here's the news you need to know, in two minutes or less.New research in Scientific Reports reveals that amphibians actually glow, and always have—scientists just couldn't see it.
So the Komineks found a compromise: a solar array with plants growing beneath, between, and around rows of photovoltaic panels.In the United States, less than 5 megawatts’ worth of solar arrays have crops planted beneath them, according to the National Renewable Energy Laboratory, or NREL.
Around 20 species of the 7,000 known grasshopper varieties transform into what’s known as a gregarious phenotype, which means their bodies actually change as they socialize into swarms.But why does the desert locust go gregarious, when the vast majority of grasshopper species remain solitarious?
“The razorback sucker has been in the Colorado River for millions of years, but recently the river has changed significantly,” says Zach Ahrens, native aquatics biologist for the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources.
That’s the conclusion of a new study by a group of British researchers who analyzed rates of change for popular songs, English literature, scientific papers, and car design.
Electrodes above and below the surface generate plasma —a highly reactive gas made up of positive ions and free electrons—that interacts with the PFAS and breaks the carbon-fluorine bonds.“Our goal is to completely destroy the compound and not just transfer it from one phase to another,” says Michelle Crimi, an environmental engineer at Clarkson University in Potsdam, New York, who works on emerging technology to remediate PFAS.
If there was ever a metaphor for the newfound openness around women’s sex tech at the annual consumer electronics fest, it might be the Lora DiCarlo truck.That’s what happened in early 2019, when DiCarlo and her team were awarded a CES Innovation prize in the Robotics and Drone category.

Strickland’s explanation at the expert level made total sense, but she also explained it to a child—you know, just in case.“A laser is a way to get light to be a single color, going in a single direction, with all the waves peaking at the same time so the intensity can get very high,” Strickland says.
When The Dress went viral in 2015—driving tens of millions of online onlookers into existential conniptions over whether the garment was blue and black or white and gold—it didn't just break the internet , it broke color science as researchers had conceived of it up to that point.But unlike that dress, nearly everyone perceives Kitaoka's berries as red.
Like so many other trans women of color, Candy's story is one marked by sexual violence and communal grief.
And everyone described the faces of all four humans as green.“We were expecting to see that people match fruit to have a little subtle tinge of typical fruit color, and skin to have a typical tinge of typical skin color,” says Bevil Conway, a color vision researcher at NIH and the lead author on a new paper about this research.
In the 1970s a researcher named MR Pointer actually set out to account for all the colors reflected by the surfaces we humans see—a very different problem than the colored lights a screen might emit, but hold that thought.
Some of those biases are personal: what the individual doctor considers to be painful, what specific cues they’re expecting from the patient.
In 2013 ten-acre Zimmerman Lake, high in the Poudre River basin, was cleared (with rotenone) of non-native fish to create a brood source for greenbacks, stocked the following year.
Birds see in four classes of color – blue, red, green and shorter wavelengths – violet or ultraviolet (UV) – depending on the species. Similar studies have looked at the role of the UV color spectrum in the way turkeys select their mates.
Project I of the series, shot in 2005 as part of Yoon's MFA program at the School of Visual Arts in New York, featured young girls with their pink belongings and boys with the blue.
Although he'd tested the color scheme in a variety of applications, Schoonover initially released themes for only a few tools he used in his own work, like the code editor Vim and the text-based email client Mutt.
Twitter Debuts an In-App Camera Function Sam Mellish/Getty Images It’s a famous origin story, and one you probably already know. Starting today and rolling out over the next week or so, users of the Twitter app on iOS and Android will be able to take and post photos using an in-app camera.
