Towards the end of 2018, movie director Adam McKay was talking to journalist David Sirota about the relative lack of media coverage for what they saw as the biggest issue of the time: climate change.
WIRED : Climate change is no longer really this kind of nebulous idea that a lot of people didn't think affected their lives personally.Susan Clayton : There's very good evidence about impacts on mental health of extreme weather events—obviously big storms, wildfires, floods, that kind of thing.
Psychologists call it crisis fatigue: Your body is well adapted to handle temporary stresses, but it can get overwhelmed by the constant, unrelenting pressures of this horrible year.But over the course of weeks, high cortisol levels wreak havoc on the body, resulting in problems like anxiety and insomnia.

A promising approach is hybrid or blended learning, which integrates online components with traditional classroom practices.Blended learning promotes the vital classroom connections that students and professors value, while also providing new modes of engagement.
Both the interstellar objects discovered so far have clocked eccentricities greater than 1: ‘Oumuamua came in at around 1.2 and 2I/Borizov registered around 3.3.Farnocchia says that, so far, additional measurements have reduced the object’s eccentricity, reducing the chance that it might be an interstellar object.
These weapons "will severely limit response times available to targeted nations and create a dangerous degree of ambiguity and uncertainty, at least in part because of their likely ability to carry either nuclear or conventional warheads," the board members noted.
Already, since Tuesday, the number of diagnosed coronavirus patients in Wuhan has shot up to 729.Using case data scraped from official reports, a team led by Jonathan Read at Lancaster University plotted a temporal map of the coronavirus’s spread, starting on January 1, when local authorities closed the meat-and-animal market where the virus is believed to have crossed into humans from an unknown source .
To find out, University of Texas at Austin physiologist Julia York went above and beyond, raising goose chicks to gain their trust before training them to fly in a wind tunnel under low oxygen conditions.To learn more, including the understandable difficulties of getting geese to fly in wind tunnels, take a look at the video above.

We had eight suitcases plus carry-on bags, and were flying from Hartford to New York on TWA, connecting to a flight to Toronto on Air Canada.Not wanting to wait three days for a standby flight, we piled into a cab and headed to the Greyhound Terminal in downtown Manhattan.
But today in the journal Nature , researchers are proposing a new framework that aims to bring clarity to this kind of work, first by reconciling differences in carbon budgets and second by reducing uncertainty going forward.
As the ion bounces around the chip, they reduce the uncertainty in the ion’s position by periodically hitting it with an electric field. These electric fields, if real, would push a magnesium ion ever so slightly, so their chip could be further developed to sense these dark matter particles.
