    Big Wasp Survey encourages volunteers to build homemade traps and send dead wasps to entomologists to monitor populations Drowning wasps in beer in the name of science may seem a socially acceptable way to exterminate a seasonal pest. But a citizen science survey “harnessing the public’s dislike of wasps” has been criticised for its “hateful language” and for unnecessarily killing rare insects. The Big Wasp Survey is encouraging 2,000 volunteers to build homemade bottle traps before posting the dead wasps to entomologists to produce a clearer picture of the much-maligned insect’s decline. (...) -- Insects, Wildlife, Environment, Animals, UK news, Science

    Images reveal a classical nova: a key instant in a cycle of events than can last thousands to millions of years Astronomers have monitored a nova – a sudden eruption of brightness – in an anonymous star 23,000 light years away, and used their observations to add weight to a theory of heavenly happenings. The nova, a white dwarf in a star system known only as V1213 Cen, in the southern sky in the direction of the constellation Centaurus, would have been visible only to observers with binoculars. It suddenly shone brightly and then dimmed in May 2009. Continue (...) -- Astronomy, Space, Science

    Pictures of red supergiant Antares, 550 light years from Earth, are the most detailed images even taken of a star other than the sun Astronomers have produced the most detailed ever images of a star other than the sun. The red supergiant, called Antares, is known as the heart of the Scorpius constellation because of its rosy hue, discernible to the naked eye, and location in the body of the astronomical beast. The new images, produced using the European Southern Observatory’s Very Large Telescope in Chile, are the most detailed yet of the surface and atmosphere of a star beyond our solar (...) -- Astronomy, Space, The sun, Science

    The ancient ancestors of horses had four toes on their front feet and three on their back – but modern horses have just one. A new study could explain why They can reach speeds of more than 40km an hour, clear hurdles more than eight feet high and even pirouette – and they manage it all with just one toe on each foot. Now researchers say they have unpicked how and why horses ended up with their unusual extremities. The only living animals with a single toe, equines (such as horses and zebras) had ancestors with multiple digits on their feet, with early relatives having four on their front (...) -- Evolution, Animals, Biology, Science

    Some parents are embracing the emerging process of replenishing newborns with lost bacteria – but doctors are warning against it There has been an emerging trend among mothers who have a caesarean section for “vaginal seeding”, a process that exposes newborn babies to the micro-organisms they would normally encounter during vaginal birth. This week, though, Danish obstetricians writing in the international journal BJOG said that it “could do more harm than good”. Doctors at the UK’s Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists also warned against it. Although the research is new and (...) -- Childbirth, Health & wellbeing, Life and style

    Prehistorian and expert in South Asian archaeology who blazed a trail for women in the field and whose publications stretched from Afghanistan to Sri Lanka The prehistorian Bridget Allchin, who has died aged 90, was one of the first women to establish herself as a field expert in the male-dominated discipline of South Asian archaeology. She played a leading role in launching the intensive field-walking surveys and excavations that discovered the oldest known stone artefacts in South Asia. In the 1950s, a time when few women excavated in India, Bridget initially assisted her husband, the (...) -- Archaeology, Research, Education, Science

    If the Bayer-Monsanto merger is approved, the concentration of agricultural control could have major consequences for farming families and communities • Hannah Lownsbrough is executive director of consumer group SumOfUs It’s the worst corporate merger you’ve probably never heard of, and one that could spell disaster for our global farming system. Bayer recently started the clock for the European Union to approve its $65bn takeover of Monsanto. On Tuesday, EU regulators announced that they would now launch an in-depth assessment of the merger on anti-competitive grounds – what it calls a (...) -- Business, Agriculture, Science, Bayer, Monsanto, European commission, European Union, Europe, US Congress, Farming, Environment, US news, World news
