Lion takes wheelbarrow ride

This lion thinks it is okay to sit in a wheelbarrow. Maybe he thinks the groundsman will take him for a ride. He obviously does not understand humans. Being brought up from a cub in captivity. How is a cat expected to know. He will stay there until dinner time.

This Lion Got Wheelbarrow At Zoo. Pretty Whimsical. fits, sits. Posted September 2, 2018, 6:11 GMT. Ty Buchanan Editorial Fellow, adventure australia. Meet Obi, 2-year-old 400-pound lion lives Oaklawn Farm Zoo Canada. Here hanging out. Last week, Obi found unusual spot wheelbarrow.

Maria Weinberg, zookeeper Oaklawn Farm, BuzzFeed News: going lion enclosure lions pumpkins play with.

giving lions pumpkins back Obi saw sitting wheelbarrow. Hoping would stay long enough pic, sit long wanted, three minutes jumped played pumpkins.

Obi clown always whatever enclosure.

Pretty funny. lion at zoo gets into wheelbarrow.

This time Obi's sat somewhere unusual. Here lounging sofa.

Wheat Rust Genes Understood After 30 Years



The genetic makeup of wheat rust has been a mystery for over 30 years. Puzzle of wheat rust genetics solved after 30 years by scientists. Researchers from CSIRO, the University of Sydney, Limagrain UK, the United Kingdom's John Innes Centre and the National Institute of Agricultural Botany (NIAB) have identified the first three resistance genes against stripe rust disease which devastates world wheat crops. UK and Australian scientists solve 30-year wheat rust genetics conundrum.

Evolution of Homo Sapiens Resulted in Odd Niche Adaptations


Lost handwriting skills




Mankind has changed to adapt to new niches, not only with climate change but by people moving into new regions. It seems that specialist features and abilities are required to survive. However, this is not always the case. The narrow nasal structure of Caucasians is not absolutely necessary. Those of African descent live in northern Eurasia and North America. --

galapagos archipelago isn't just glorious immaculate and fragile yet in addition novel in our reality numerous individuals make a decent attempt to safeguard this captivated place guaranteeing the islands a national stop and the encompassing ocean a marine hold is as of now an incredible exertion really it is as of now a standout amongst the most ensured archipelagos on the planet despite the fact that this is very cool it unfortunately must be said that as of now 5 of the first greenery fauna doesn't exist any longer and dangers to the astonishing nature in the galapagos still exist this implies protecting this regular gem in the pazific sea is still more than essential associations help with this honorable undertaking as well as galapagos occupants and visit administrators watch out for the valuable and you can and will partake in the preservation when going by the galapagos too initial a speedy refresher to why we have to save those charmed islands you in all likelihood definitely know – or will know by the second you google „galapagos – that those islands with all their untamed life inland and also submerged is stunning so it would be

a disgrace to simply give this a chance to vanish from our earth – by what other method would you be able to demonstrate to your awesome grandchildren your not a liar with amazing photoshop-aptitudes when enlightening them regarding your one of a kind galapagos travels yet the things which make it that vital to act now are the dangers which follow up on the galapagos archipelago for instance a considerable lot of the galapagos winged animals like the enormous elegant gooney bird the sensational red and blue-footed boobies and the charming galapagos penguin go after fish well anglers do as such as well and with us people getting increasingly „successful in our angling the galapagos flying creatures endure similarly and did you realize that a plastic pack submerged looks like top notch jellyfish according to our adorable tortoises and that eating plastic sacks can without much of a stretch execute them getting us to one more of the dangers rubbish however most diffucult to stay away from and thusly extremely undermining are remote plants and creatures like the slope blackberry rats and parasitic creepy crawlies coming purposefully or accidentally with our pontoons to the galapagos they spread quickly and imperil endemic creatures and plants by eating their nourishment or eating them furthermore to this environmental change and atmosphere occasions like el niño debilitate the islands and their

untamed life a ton since the warmed water is less nutritious numerous fish and flying creatures discover way less nourishment supply which influences them to starve or reduce their multiplication for those and more reasons the archipelago officially lost a portion of the animal varieties tomás de berlanga may have seen in 1535 when the islands were found possibly the most exceedingly terrible day in galapagos history on the off chance that you get the opportunity to ask the creatures from that point forward people going to the archipelago misused it in the more established history of galapagos whalers and privateers were utilizing monster tortoises as living meat supply on their vessels likewise well known charles darwin – who had the peculiar propensity to attempt the meat of each and every creature he examined – experimented with on tortoises iguanas and different galapagos creatures while visitiing the archipelago in 1835 however we can hurl a moan of help since today numerous measures are taken to save the creature and home grown tenants of the archipelago an enormous part in the protection issue is contributed by various associations expressly established to safeguard the galapagos archipelago you can basically separate the associations into the individuals who work in the archipelago and the individuals who fund-raise to help them the ones fund-raising like the galapagos conservancy gc and the galapagos protection trust gct work to expand society's consideration on the galapagos archipelago and the need to save it since there are now numerous exceptionally qualified individuals taking a shot at the conservation of the galapagos the most productive route is to concede them money related help that is the reason they for the most part center around gathering pledges some of those fundamentally raising money associations reached out to likewise discovered their own ventures like enhancing nearby training concerning protection as non-benefit associations accepting the gifts and utilizing them to save the archipelago by numerous activities and research the world untamed life subsidize wwf and the charles darwin fundation cdf can be named the wwf for instance helps having an eye on the sensitive archipelago so nobody can annihilate it by illicit angling and other shrewdness deeds facilitate they need to actualize ecotourism so when you visit galapagos you will do the minimum damage conceivable to its perfect biological community the cdf works in close collaboration with the ecuadorian government and the galapagos national stop directorate since 1959 they have the permit to do look into and different undertakings on the galapagos having their heart at the charles darwin explore station in the event that you need to find out about their work a visit over yonder will be very instructive further measures are taken by the ecuadorian state occupants and in addition visit administrators did you realize that any exercises that may prompt the elimination of an animal categories or devastation of condition is entirely illegal by ecuadorian law and that reusing works very decent on the galapagos the natural waste on the islands is treated the soil in that spot all the glass-items in galapagos are reused just on the islands and utilized as a feature of clearing stones with regards to terms of vitality the tenants of the captivated islands likewise go clean they execute an ever increasing number of sun oriented plants and wind turbines additionally the anglers who prior were such an extraordinary risk to the earth now begin to choose their prey more reliable when for instance angling for lobsters they do whatever it takes not to get and if so discharge the little youthful lobsters and also female ones with eggs as of now the littlest tenants of the galapagos are educated in school about jeopardized species and how to save them on the off chance that you begin getting desirous that there are individuals who can truly call this heaven their home there is likewise an awful side to it the tenants' lifes are managed in practically every viewpoint in the event that they need to purchase an auto they require a consent on the off chance that they need to work a pontoon they require an authorization on the off chance that they need to amplify their home they require an authorization notwithstanding remodeling a house – needs authorization and the majority of them never acquire that consent yet what's terrible for the general population is useful for the nature only 3 of the islands is permitted to be occupied this gives 97 of the islands just to the creatures and plants to develop unreservedly the visit administrators and vacationers going to the islands additionally need to take after numerous controls so as to help protecting the archipelago the voyage ships need to utilize desalinization frameworks and biodegradable cleansers and shampoos when going to an island you will allways need to wash your shoes not to style up for boobies and iguanas but rather to ensure you don't convey any plant seeds to the island this guarantees no outside plants settle on another island and undermine neighborhood plants doesn't need to be said that you should keep your rubbish in your knapsack the visit guides work not just as guide and money box of insight yet in addition as spies for the sake of nature at whatever point they see a drop in for instance the penguin populace or any visitor making hurt any creature they will report this to the galapagos national stop you see that there are numerous things done to safeguard our valuable so as to at present let our awesome grandchildren and their awesome grandchildren and their – you know how it works – get the joy of appreciating the

Genetic Researchers Complete Carrot Genome

Genetics: Identification of the genome of the carrot has just been complete by researchers.
Though the carrot is a mundane vegetable it is important for a rounded, varied diet. Haven't you heard that carrots are good for your eyesight - I bet you have never seen a rabbit wearing glasses have you? Ah well, a little less of the frivolity!
Carrots of many colors
Scientists sequenced the genome of the humble carrot only a week ago. Increasing the level of nutrients in the vegetable is the prime objective. Vitamin A is present in high levels naturally. This does benefit one's eyes. Side issues include disease resistant and greater yields. This does directly improve life for farmers. Overall ,consumers get a better product at a lower price.

Ironically, vegetables have more genes than humans: 32,000 compared to 20,000. It seems that Man is nothing special after all. Plants are more complex than us. Carrots are probably more useful than people to the planet - they don't destroy it.

The vegetable was first recorded as food in Afghanistan a thousand years ago. The original wild carrot was white. Purple and yellow ones are popular in the Middle East and Asia.   Orange carrots were depicted in Spanish and German paintings in the 1500s.

Wasps Favor Large Size for Sex

Size matters when it comes to sex. When in the orchid world it does anyway! The plants rely on wasps for fertilization. Apparently, male wasps are attracted to the largest orchids. Shape of plants also has a role.
Male wasps visit large orchids to pollinate them
Orchids are a replica of female wasps, in shape and scent. Two orchids who had two kinds of wasps enamored with them were observed. The wasps did visited both types of plants but they spent more time "copulating' with their favored orchid.

Scent is offered to male wasps on little black beads. This only attracts males to the flowers. Once there, shape and size of blooms affects whether wasps stay or go. Orchids also benefits from this because plants with larger flowers are fertilized and they produce the next generation of orchids.

KAI2 Improves Growth as Well as Germination After Fire

KAI2 improves plant growth after a fire germination
Why do plant seeds in Australia start germinating after a fire? It is because of Karrikin Insensitive2 (KAI2) a protein which has been present in plants for millions of years. KAI2 has been important for all plants for 400 million years.

When the KAI2 protein was removed from a higher, more recent plant, Arabidopsis thaliana, its leaves malformed. Yet splicing the KAI2 back by taking it from the ancient Selaginella resulted in improved A. thaliana growth, but it could no longer detect the presence of smoke the normal function of KAI2.

This finding shows the more general function of KAI2. It not only identifies karrikins in smoke, it is important for plant growth. "Sensing" is the main purpose of KAI2. Apparently it can be tuned to detect different things. This could help farmers control seed germination times.

Wheat is notorious for germinating in the grain during heavy rain periods. Being able to spray a chemical that stops this would save millions of dollars and improve crop yields. Furthermore, spraying to stop weeds from sprouting would be the supreme herbicide.

Wild Glycine Crossed With Soybean

Selection of the most suitable plants has been going on for thousands of years, but it has never been so intensive as modern times. It is not so much farmers who do it today. Scientists are doing this as their main work.
Glycine crossed with soybean crop agriculture fertility hormone
Ram Singh a geneticist crossed a wild Australian plant with soybean to produce a super crop. Many soybean diseases have been stopped in their tracks. It wasn't easy though. Success came after years of research. The first attempt to "blend" wild Glycine attributes with soybean took place in 1983.

A new process which prevents hybrid seeds from becoming sterile was the key to creating the special soybean. Many back crosses with the parent plant were necessary. Ram Singh sent seeds to other scientists as he was working. Outside input from them was a great help.

Soybean is a very imported crop that feeds the world. Many products are derived from it. There is hope for the future as 26 wild species of Glycine exist. Most are disease resistant. The hormone anti-sterility treatment has opened-up the whole crop breeding field.

Solution to Bee Die-Off?

It is not widely known just how important bees are to maintain our food output, let alone to increase it as demand strengthens. There are so many mysteries to why bees are dying off across the world. Many theories are put forward. Unfortunately, there are few answers to the problem.
We need to look after the human friendly insect. It could eventually be found that bees are being killed off by chemicals. However, like other animals bees need chemicals to treat illnesses. When they become infected they change their foraging habits seeking pollen from plants that store certain chemicals. The solution to bee die-off could lie in studying this phenomenon.

Plants synthesize chemicals that attract select species of pollinators. Other substance also deter potential attackers. Herbivores have been real pests to plants for millions of years. Eating the leaves can kill plants. Insects have evolved to go where plant toxins drive herbivores away.

All nectar is not the same. If toxins can drive away herbivores, beneficial elements could attract bees as and when the insects needs it. A study infected bees with a gut parasite. One group was fed on sucrose while another group was given secondary compounds from plant nectar. The amount of parasite infestation was greatly reduced in the group which consumed secondary compounds.

Robot to Replace Dumb Farm Workers

The robot age is here!  That is if you believe what scientists are trying to tell us.  Shouting and waving your hands in the air about a new thing is par for the course.  We have heard it all before: mew thing, great leap forward, and so on.

Apparently, the new gadget is a robot for use on a farm.  Developed in Australia, the machine wanders around the farm "keeping an eye" on crops and pests.  It is guided by hyperspectral cameras and sensors.  The initial field test, forgive the pun, was at a vegetable growing property where beetroot, spinach and onions are grown.

The robot has a mechanical arm for pulling up weeds - wow productivity will go through the roof!  Just how fast will this thing go?  Unfortunately, it moves very slowly.  Scientists say it will free up staff from manual labor.  This is absolute rubbish.  How does it know what is a weed and what is a valuable plant?

Unless it does high-tech stuff it will not prove to be beneficial.  If it can detect pests and diseases very early, it will be useful.  However, manual labor does take a high level of intelligence.  You must know how the job is to be done usually without supervision.  Scientists wrongly believe that farm workers are dumb.

New Laser Processing of Uranium Is a Danger

The last thing the world needs is an easier way to enrich uranium. There is nowhere to put the used uranium and the disaster in Japan shows the potential risk and damage from nuclear power stations.

A new laser enrichment process has been developed by General Electric. It enables production of enriched uranium cheaper, quicker and in larger amounts. It is feared that "rogue" states will get hold of the knowledge and make uranium for nuclear bombs.

Claiming that nuclear power is a way of reducing greenhouse gases is ridiculous. If more power plants are built more will be at risk from natural disasters. Vast tracts of land will be left uninhabitable as in Japan. It is ironic that GE has made this leap forward in partnerships with a Japanese company, Hitachi.

They are talking now about turning the damaged power plant back on because the country cannot manage without it. Workers there will have to wear full-protection suits all day every day to generate electricity.
